Weapon : GALLO SA12 Barrel : 24.8 Task Force Body : Ember Sighting Point Magazine : Sta nag 12 Round Tube Muzzle : Flash Cone 12 GA Stock : Marathon Stock 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.
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.
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. A TikTok has discovered a way to easily achieve the Diamond camo on the M79 in Black Ops Cold War through a secret spot on Nuke town.
A TikTok video by North Texas shows players how to easily achieve gold camo on the M79 special launcher in Black Ops Cold War. Due to the low damage values and effectiveness of Flak Jacket, some launchers can take up to 3 shots to kill enemies in hardcore modes, which is problematic for obvious reasons.
Luckily, a player has discovered a spot to get easy long shots and feeds with the weapon to expedite the tedious process. We recommend lobby-surfing for hardcore games with players who aren’t running Flak Jacket, as this will make the process much faster.
One player has demonstrated incredible patience to prestige in Black Ops Cold War without killing even a single person in the game. One dedicated Call of Duty player opted to prestige in Black Ops Cold War in a very unconventional way.
So it seems remarkable that someone has been able to persevere for 37 hours of in-game time to achieve this, steering clear of any assist-giving damage and taking great care to avoid any accidental kills. Plus, in certain modes, it was great news for their teammates as Pilgore1 primarily focused on taking down enemy score streaks and completing the objective.
Objectives and “Clearing the sky” were the keys to victory, and you’d have to imagine they didn’t focus too much on Team Deathwatch and kill-heavy modes. We’re not saying that everyone needs to stop camping in a corner for a Sentry Turret (you’ve all done it), but it just goes to show that people can find new ways to enjoy Black Ops Cold War.
The Sniper’s Nest score streak may be arriving in Black Ops Cold War soon after a player’s video showed the existence of it. Despite the addition of the H.A.R.P score streak with Season 1, it seems that Trey arch could be welcoming the return of the Black Ops 4 Sniper’s Nest kill streak into BOW.
Black Ops Cold War already has a wealth of score streaks for players to use in matches, from the tactical Spy Plane to the simply devastating Gunship. Whether it’s due to unused assets from a previous Call of Duty, or because of future content that has conspicuously been left in, there is a likelihood that Sniper’s Nest does exist.
The MW2 OG Twitter page has been sent a video showing how one player managed to reveal this piece of information. Debuting in Black Ops 4, the Sniper’s Nest score streak allowed players to call in a helicopter with two absolutely pin-point marksmen that could laser enemies with one shot.
As with most score streaks, the vehicle is susceptible to enemy fire and can easily be brought down using a combination of weapons and anti-scorestreak devices. The sinister tinkle of the mystery box, the mind-bending Easter eggs, the wacky Pack-a-Punch weapons; it’s good to have it all back.
However, in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War’s Zombies mode, players not only have the usual means of acquiring some firepower through the mystery box, wall weapons, or Easter egg rewards, but they can now head into the fight with a custom loadout using any gun they’ve unlocked in the game so far. There’s no definitive answer to what the best weapon in Black Ops Cold War’s Zombies mode is as it can vary through each play through, and on your own play style.
However, as upgrades and the prospect of Pack-a-Punching come into play later in the game, other weapons emerge as top picks for clearing the massive waves of enemies and chunking damage out of bosses. There is also a melee bonus in Black Ops Cold War Zombies which means that using the knife will rack up a tonne of points for you to spend on future weapon upgrades, perks, and clearing doorways and blockades.
When levelled up using Ethereum crystals, Healing Aura can also knock back zombies, stun bosses, and create a beam that revives allies. Other honorable mentions for starting weapons include the Stoner LEG for its high ammo count and decent damage, and the Gallo SA12 shotgun, which will one shot enemies for a fair few rounds.
Our top picks to chuck in the machine are the M16, the Gallo SA12 shotgun, the Ray Gun (if you’re lucky enough to pull one from the mystery box), and the Knife. The XM4 and the Stoner LEG are also good alternatives to Pack-a-Punch, but the extended burst fire and high critical damage makes the M16 a beast once upgraded.
It does massive damage to bosses, will turn zombies into crawlers if you fire it at the surrounding ground, and can clear trains extremely quickly. It can be brought into the game with your starting loadout, can be purchased as a Tier 3 wall weapon early on at the crash site section of Die Machine, and when Pack-a-Punched becomes arguably the best gun for clearing hordes of the undead.
So, if you’re looking to stay alive as long as possible in Black Ops Cold War Zombies, what’s the bestloadout to end up with? As mentioned before, spend your Ethereum Crystals on the melee upgrade to make sure you’re always one-hitting zombies, even with your primary weapon out.
While Healing Aura is a great field upgrade for starting loadouts, we think Ring of Fire is the best for high-round runs. They’ll get you out of tricky spots and can bunch up zombies, so you can go on a safe knifing spree to conserve ammo.
Lethal grenades don’t really play much of a role in the high round meta, but a C4 or Molotov is good for damaging multiple zombies at once. Other things to consider, of course, include getting yourself a full set of perks and holding onto a Self-Revive Support by either crafting one or getting lucky with a random loot drop.
