Hopping into the new Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War Zombies mode, Outbreak? Well, we’re here to give you 10 tips and tricks to help you survive the undead in this new large-scale zombies mode. So let’s dive right on in.
Cold War Zombies Outbreak Tips & Tricks
1. Spend Your Aetherium Crystals Before You Start
Before you even start a game of Outbreak, make sure you’ve spent all your Aetherium Crystals you might have earned from Firebase Z or Die Maschine in the past.
Aetherium Crystals can be used to upgrade Weapon Classes, Field Upgrades, Perks and Ammo Mods. We tend to focus our Aetherium Crystals on upgrading the Perks and Field Upgrades first, as these can really come in clutch during later waves, especially Jugger-Nog Tier 3+.
2. Grind Out Early Waves
As is always the case with any Zombies game mode, the first round or two of Outbreak are pretty easy. Once you’ve completed the objective, you’ll be given a waypoint to a Portal which will take you to the next objective and begin a new wave.
Don’t go rushing into the portal as soon as it appears. Zombies will continue to spawn even after you’ve completed the objective, meaning you can farm low-health zombies for easy Points/Essence.
You can also use the Reward Machine and Trials Computer to grind out plenty of rewards for your loadout, such as Legendary and Epic weapons, if you level your rewards up enough before redeeming them.
This then means you’ll have plenty of points to spend on Pack-a-Punching your weapons and buying any Perks you might want.
