Each Perk and FieldUpgrade is distinct; some aren't worth taking a second look at, and others are the most essential things in the game. Frost Blast is a FieldUpgrade that when used will create a small field around you that damages and freezes zombies.
Upgrading it doesn't change much with it, only giving you an extra charge and doubling the range. The Energy Mine does linger, so you can put it in a place to run into with a train of zombies, but you can accomplish the same with much less effort with just a C4.
Dead shot Daiquiri was widely considered to be one of the worst Perks in the previous Zombies installments. This trend continues in Black Ops Cold War, although being able to upgrade it improves it slightly.
After being gone in Black Ops 4, Speed Cola returns in a traditional Perk machine. Like previous installments, Speed Cola is a useful Perk but doesn't directly help you in any major way.
All Speed Cola does is make you reload faster (and boost your recharge for your FieldUpgrade if it's upgraded). When used a ring forms and when standing inside it you do more damage while Zombies entering into it will be slowed down.
Elemental Pop is the first Perk new to Black Ops Cold War, and it immediately stands out as one of the best. Elemental Pop will randomly trigger an alternate ammo type even if it is not attached to your gun.
Having access to more powerful alternate ammo types is never going to be a bad thing, and it affects all weapons. However, with its Black Ops Cold War iteration, it also boosts the speed it takes for your health to start regenerating again.
This means that Quick Revive is such a necessity in Black Ops Cold War, as maintaining full health is so important in Zombies. It also gives more incentive to use it in Solo, as originally it would just act as an extra life.
Ether Shroud is the ultimate tool to save you when you mess up, and that's what makes it so good. After being missing from Black Ops 4, Juggling returns and reclaims its title as best Perk in the game.
With how damaging some zombies can be such as the Megaton, having extra health can make or break a run. Having worked many odd jobs, including article writing, he is now a list writer for TheGamer.com.
I’d recommend doing this early on and upgrading it as you go, since being able to choose your own attachments is a fantastic way to maximize your salvage and loot drops. No more messing around then, here’s the ideal loadout you should be bringing with you into Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War’s Zombies mode.
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. In Black Ops Cold War’s Zombies mode, you’ll be able to use the Create-a-Class feature to pick out your favorite weapon from the multiplayer and equip attachments to it.
Doing this can give you a massive advantage in the early rounds, and if you combine it with the right Field Upgrades as well, you can be a formidable zombie-killing machine. This shotgun can deal heavy damage in each shot, and has a rapid fire rate to help you tear through zombies.
This spreads your shotgun pellets more to the sides, allowing you to hit more zombies with each shot. It’s particularly handy for later rounds where you’ll have a large train of zombies and will want to take down as many as possible in as few a shot.
The Ranger boosts effective damage range by 30%, but decreases aim walking movement speed by 35%. For the Body, we’ve opted for the SWAT 5mw Laser Sight, increasing Hip Fire Accuracy by 35% but dropping ADS time by 8%.
Again, it’s a no-brainer here, as you’ll be hip firing your Gallo constantly, but won’t be aiming down the sights. It’s the perfect partner to have in Cold War’s zombies mode for when you find yourself on the brink of defeat.
Upgrade it completely, however, and while in the ring, your weapon will take ammo from your stock instead of the magazine, ensuring you won’t have to reload just as you’re about to be overwhelmed by the undead.

In Call of Duty: Cold War, gamers are looking forward to a highly improved Zombie game mode. In COD Cold War, Field Upgrades in Zombies have undergone a major revamp.
In a bid to link multiplayer and Zombie game modes, the creators of COD Cold War have taken steps to integrate common weapon load-outs and classes. But, the Field Upgrades in Black Ops: Cold War Zombies will be completely different from those found in Multiplayer this year.
Levels: Using Ethereum Crystals that you collect during the game (exclusive to Cold War Zombies) you can upgrade your selected field upgrade. It allows you to quickly launch an explosive charge to the group that detonates and zaps nearby zombies.
The purple energy pulse can be shot into the ground before a horde of zombies, and it will detonate in 4 seconds, killing all in the vicinity. This will be an excellent tool to displace nearby opponents and buy you some room to heal, regroup, or approach a better vantage point to take down some blood-hungry monsters.
The enclosed space will capture multiple targets, giving you a massive amount of kills. Dealing heavy damage, this field upgrade will allow you to add to kill streaks, farm more kills.

Level 1 : Gain regent buff for entire squad that lasts 10 seconds (invincibility and increased damage) This makes it a highly effective tool to clear corners or hold one size while you take out zombies on the other side.
This can be used in tandem with a heavy RPG weapon or Claymores to effectively wipe out many zombies. The only reason this ability ranks fourth is that it is a defensive tool that serves an inoffensive function.
Levels: Using Ethereum Crystals that you collect during the game (exclusive to Cold War Zombies) you can upgrade your selected field upgrade. The Ether Blast FieldUpgrade allows you to do that in COD Cold War Zombies.
When you are surrounded, a quick either shroud can give you the tactical advantage which allows you to circle behind and rain down fire. Also, it lasts for a very short duration and cannot give you a massive advantage like some other field upgrades on this list do.
Levels: Using Ethereum Crystals that you collect during the game (exclusive to Cold War Zombies) you can upgrade your selected field upgrade. Black Ops Cold War Zombies features five field upgrades with varying abilities for players to utilize.
Black Ops Cold War Zombies offers a ton of customization when it comes to starting a match, and picking the right field upgrade can be a major game-changer. Image via TreyarchOf all the Black Ops Cold War Zombies field upgrades, the top pick is the Ether Shroud.
Reviving teammates is also made far easier when Zombies are swarming in full force, and invisibility is the only option. Crystals are earned through playing and completing aspects such as a successful Email in Black Ops Cold War Zombies.
With all three tiers, the Ether Shroud shines; it doesn't necessarily provide damage or health boosts, like some other field upgrades. When playing in a full squad for Black Ops Cold War Zombies, players may want to have something like the Healing Aura on, but Ether Shroud is at the top.
