Tips and tricks to staying alive in a cold war zombie: Call of Duty

I would like to share some helpful tips and tricks for when you find yourself stuck in a zombie apocalypse in Call of Duty’s “Zombies” multiplayer mode.

The first thing I would recommend is that you stay together with your team and stick to an area where there are other zombies, instead of running out into the open.

I would also like to suggest that you get into the habit of hacking or hitting zombie’s heads off, it will save you ammunition and can be used as a fun form of entertainment when your team is gathered around looking for enemies; of course this is not something which should be done in public.

Equip yourself with the best gear for surviving

The Pack-a-Punch Machine. This upgrade machine allows you to fit your weapons with better parts, allowing them to become deadlier for killing zombies.

Having a weapon that has an explosive firing rate also helps, as it can wipe out multiple targets at once.

Make sure you are always on the look out for power-ups, as they can aid you in winning a zombie round.

When using this machine it is important that your team mates stand back to avoid injury from the explosive rounds.

Learn how to use all of the weapons at your disposal

If you are playing with friends then let each member of the team have a go on all weapons in the game and learn how to use them properly,

for example: If your friend is using the thunder gun (a deadly weapon that shoots exploding rounds) and they suck at using it; give them some pointers on how to aim and reload this gun and they will be very grateful.

Stay alert and aware of your surroundings

It is easy to get lost in the mayhem of thinking that only zombies are around you, but it is important to be aware of other players. Make sure your team mates know this and stay alert as well.

An example of how not to play would be running around like a headless chicken with no back up or awareness of where your enemy is.

If you are not careful, you will lose your life very quickly.

How to turn power on in cold war zombies

Zombies in the game mode “Call of Duty: Zombies” appear out of nowhere and can be very annoying.

The best thing to do is hold them off until you turn the power on so that traps such as the turret, which will help you kill zombies, become available.

Build alliances with other survivor teams

If you have a microphone connected via Xbox or PS3, it can be helpful to communicate with other teams.

Collaborate with them on how to build up a survivor base and explore new areas together.

It is also great fun if you encounter another team in the middle of nowhere and they come over for “tea and crumpets” and you kill them, which is a little bit mean but very satisfying.

Survive long enough to see another day!

Another good tactic is to completely ignore the zombies and run around the map exploring all areas.

It can be very beneficial if you discover new areas where you can build up your survivor base. It’s also fun looking for Easter Eggs, hidden surprises that are left by game developers in-game for players to find.


By following these tips and tricks, you will be able to survive much longer and even if your team and yourself die, it is still all in good fun.

These methods will hopefully help you with getting better at “Zombies” multiplayer mode in Call of Duty: Black Ops.
