With how this game’s Prestige and progression works, you’ll receive unlocks no matter what mode you play. So, we’re going with a maximized salvage and equipment drop rate in this loadout, which is massively beneficial throughout the game but especially in later rounds.
It takes a second or so to activate, but you’ll get the hang of it, and using your Ether Shroud is a LOT better than getting downed. When you start camping in corners to take out loads of zombies in later rounds, this bad boy will be an absolute godsend.
Of course, start rolling for the Ray Gun when money stops being an issue, as having this in your back pocket along with your Gallo SA12 will make you extremely hard for the undead to take down. There’s nothing quite as good as blasting some zombies with a shotgun, but your best options will vary depending on whether you’re in the early, mid, or late game.
We’re going to forego the handle because it doesn’t provide any useful stats for zombies mode. You can choose to change things up, but we don’t find the scope necessary because of the spread.
We’re going with the 24.8 Task Force barrel, which drastically improves pellet damage against the zombies. It lowers the effective range, but the shotgun is for some ups close and personal zombie-slaying action, so that doesn’t matter.
It has a bonus stat that increases salvage drop rate, which will help immensely in the game’s later rounds. This attachment causes a slower reload speed, but that isn’t very important in the beginning rounds.
Another attachment we can equip to provide some benefits is the Flash Cone 12 GA muzzle. It gives a slight reduction to hip-fire accuracy, but the Ember Sighting Point makes up for it.
It’s not always guaranteed, but there is a very high chance of getting a Ray Gun by completing the in-game Easter Egg. It also deals area of effect damage, making it the ultimate weapon in the game.
You won’t have a problem until level 52 when you’re rocking a Ray Gun because of the super-fast zombie sprinters. Normal enemies who enter gain a burning effect that deals fire damage.
There are always instances when your character gets stuck in a corner, and Ether Shroud allows you an escape route. In this guide, we’ll show you some of the best loadouts you can have to face the mobs of zombies.
The following are the best loadouts you could have while you are up against the deadly zombie hordes in the Die Machine map of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. Zombies stay close to you and so this first load out features the Gallo SA112 shotgun.
When the zombies get closer to you, a single headshot from this weapon will surely bring them down. The choice of muzzle depends on if you prefer quicker kills will less point building and more dropped equipment or vice versa.
I wouldn’t recommend the longest barrel as it will only affect your hip fire damage, and you will end up losing precious ammo per load in the longer range. Zombies mode in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War can be approached in a number of different ways, from searching for Easter eggs and hunting Dark Ether crystals to simply shredding zombies with the mode's best weapons.
The Ray Gun has seen its ups and downs in terms of power since its first appearance in Call of Duty: World at War, but Cold War has made this weapon a viable zombie killer once again. It uses powerful projectiles that blast through waves of zombies like a hot knife through butter.
The Ray Gun appears (extremely) rarely inside mystery boxes. The RPD is another legendary weapon that has performed very well in Zombies mode over the years.

Before we get started, do keep in mind that the weapon progression can be very slow, so if you haven't unlocked the higher end attachments simply opt for one that is very similar in specs.

Ideal for medium to long-range encounters when paired with the right scope, the M16 Tactical Rifle is highly accurate and can deal significant amounts of damage. With added attachments to reduce your recoil and increase your fire rate, we found the M16 to be a real force to be reckoned with when put into the right hands.
By Alex Barton Trey arch If you’re looking to one-shot enemies in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War with a shotgun, there’s an incredible Bauer 77 loadout that will help you dominate your Multiplayer matches in no time. Shotguns are back in the secondary slot in Treyarch‘s Black Ops Cold War and players are loving the one-shot potential of the weapons.
When comparing the weapons, the Bauer 77 comes out on top for base firepower but the Gallo SA12 has a significantly faster rate of fire. The Bauer 77 is the spotty players unlock first at level 7 and is the weapon we’ll be covering today.
Lethal: Frag Grenade Tactical: Stimson Field Upgrade: Trophy System This loadout strictly focuses on dominating opponents at close range with the shotgun.
The Task Force Barrel increases the Bauer’s damage output at close quarters by 45%. In terms of choosing a primary weapon, the M16 provides this loadout with a medium to long-range option for players.
On top of this, the Bauer struggles with its ammo usage so running Scavenger eliminates this issue. The addition of Flak Jacket and Tactical Mask makes this combination heavily resistant to enemy equipment and capable of clearing areas quickly.
Finally, the equipment choices are fairly standard but running Stimson in the tactical slot is a must. After rushing into a room and taking multiple close-quarter gunfights, the Stimson is ideal in preparing for your next encounter with an enemy.
By Brad Norton Activision An extremely patient Call of Duty player has just reached first prestige in Black Ops Cold War, without ever dealing damage to their opponents. While a majority of players stick to fundamentals and play the game as intended, there’s always some that veer from the path.
As gamers are sinking their teeth into Black Ops Cold War, many have reached new heights with the innovative prestige system. Reddit: Pilgore1This player reached first prestige in Black Ops Cold War without a single kill to their name.
It took a full 37 hours of game time for Reddit user ‘ Pilgore1 to accomplish their goal. Playing the objective and “clearing the sky,” were the key factors that gained this player XP over time.
