Black Ops Cold War’s Zombies mode includes a number of different additions and changes but one of the biggest is the upgrades that have been made to the crafting system, which is now more refined than previous titles. Here’s what you need to know.
With Black Ops Cold War, Treyarch has overhauled the Zombies experience to include a slew of new features, as well as a seemingly brand new storyline. The mode is very different when it comes to its previous entries, while still keeping the same spirit and concepts that fans have loved for years now.
One of the bigger changes to the mode, beyond the exfil function, is the game’s new crafting table feature, which allows players to make everything from grenades and equipment to scorestreaks. Here’s how it works.
Black Ops Cold War Zombies Crafting Table
While crafting tables have appeared in previous Zombies entries in one way, shape, or form, this overhaul in Black Ops Cold War completely changes up how it’s used.
Instead of players having to roam around the map, searching for specific parts, and then returning to the table to build the item, players now collect salvage and random parts from Zombies when they’re killed. The more salvage you have, the better items you’ll be able to build.
For example, 50 pieces of salvage will get you allow you to build a bow, while 250 will get you in control of a Chopper Gunner.
What items are available in the Crafting Table?
Right now, there seem to be four Tactical items, five Lethal items, and five support items (scorestreaks). Each item can help you in a different way in-game and most are based on items featured in the base Multiplayer mode.
The only exception to that rule is the Monkey Bomb, which obviously returns from previous Treyarch Zombies titles.
- Stim shot
- Stun grenade
- Decoy grenade
- Cymbal Monkey (Monkey Bomb)
- Frag grenade
- Semtex grenade
- Combat Bow
- Sentry Gun
- War Machine
- Chopper Gunner
Crafting Table locations in Die Maschine
While Crafting Tables don’t require anything to unlock, they seem to be few and far between on Die Maschine. There’s one in the main spawn room, allowing players quick access to a table in the early game, but the only other table seems to be right outside the underground facility’s automated doors.
This means that if players want to build some equipment, they’ll have to make their way to those two stations. There could be more around the map but right now, those seem to be the only options for players.
Here’s hoping that subsequent maps have more tables and that more items get added to each crafting station.
