Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Zombies Adding New Field Upgrade and Ammo Mod – GameRant

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is giving Zombies fans plenty of love in Season 2, with a new Field Upgrade and Ammo Mod coming to the game.

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Zombies got off to a strong start with Die Maschine and Firebase Z, and it seems like Treyarch is doing all it can to keep fans of the mode invested. As part of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Season 2, Zombies players will have some new skills to use and upgrade.

The addition of new, upgradeable skills could not come at a better time, as Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War's Outbreak modewill see fans getting a proper open-world Zombies experience for the first time ever. While vehicles and jump pads will make exploration fun, being able to slay the undead will be equally important, and the additions of Frenzied Guard and Shatter Blast should help with this task. A Field Upgrade and Ammo Mod respectively, players can use these upgrades in Outbreak mode and traditional Zombies Survival.

Like other Field Upgrades, players can equip Frenzied Guard from the main menu. Once activated, all Zombies in the map will target the player that is using the upgrade, with damage only being dealt to the armor of the Frenzied Guard user leaving their health entirely intact. Frenzied Guard can be upgraded to instantly restore armor once activated, with buffs to its duration and the ability to slow all Zombies down to walking speed also available. A major plus for co-op play, teammates can simply call out if they are trapped to have a safe player lure all Zombies to them.

As for the Ammo Mod, Zombies fans will be able to attach Shatter Blast whenever they interact with a Pack-A-Punch machine. When equipped, all bullets fired will deal explosive damage, something that allows players to punch through the armor of heavy Zombies and mini bosses like the Mangler. Bullets also have the chance to explode, making for an even stronger mod. Shatter Blasts upgrades increase the blast radius while knocking down normal Zombies, allowing for every shot to hurt an entire train of foes.

Lastly, and most importantly, two new skill tiers are being added for every upgrade in the game giving players a reason to grind Aetherium Crystals once again. Not only will perks like Tombstone and Juggernog be made stronger with these bonus tiers, but weapon damage, field upgrades, and ammo mods will all get a boost as well. With a new Flawless Aetherium Crystal type being added as a high round and Outbreak reward, players are given a major incentive to try the open world mode and aim for high rounds in Survival.

With plenty of worthwhile crystal upgrades already available, the addition of Shatter Blast and Frenzied Guard only improve this lineup. Further, additional upgrade tiers is a huge plus for longtime players, making the launch of Season 2 even more exciting.

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is available now on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.
