How to unlock the Seraph Specialist in Blackout battle royale

The way to unlock the Seraph Specialist in Call of Duty’s new Blackout battle royale mode has finally been discovered. 

Reddit users by the name of ‘YungLurchh’ and ‘Implxse’ have posted a set of instructions that players will have to follow in order to use the Seraph and her infamous Annihilator pistol in Blackout. 

According to the posts, players will first have to either land at or find there way to the Firing Range location on the Blackout map, while also finding a Mozu pistol in the process.

The Mozu is important because players will then have to use it to shoot the six targets that are located “behind the building with the green tarp.”

The user has included a visual of where that building is approximately located, which is where the orange arrow is in the image below:

Reddit u/YungLurchhThe location of the targets is at the orange arrow, NOT the white cursor

Prior to shooting the targets however, players will want to check the right table towards the targets for a box. If a box is there, players can find the Annihilator inside once the targets are shot. If not, then the Annihilator cannot be obtained and thus the Seraph cannot be unlocked that match.


Once the targets are shot, and the Annihilator obtained, players will then have to complete all of the following three tasks:

  1. Kill an enemy with the Annihilator
  2. Place Top 5 (Check notes down below)
  3. Finish the game with the Annihilator in your inventory.

Once all three tasks are complete, then the Seraph should be unlocked as a playable character in the customization menu. 


There are several additional things to note about this quest – the Annihilator is a weapon that takes up a slot in the inventory and only contains 6 bullets. This makes the challenges harder to complete, since players will likely only have one viable weapon near end-game situations.

The second note is that the “place top 5” challenge currently only applies to Duos. The placing requirement in Solos has not yet been determined, but the post mentions that players are able to get it with around 15 people still alive. 

The Seraph, which is one of 10 Specialists in the Multiplayer side of Black Ops 4, is the seventh Specialist that can be currently unlocked in Blackout.

Black Ops Cold War weapons & perks changes revealed for Zombies

After revealing Black Ops Cold War’s Zombies mode back in September, Treyarch has now done a deep dive into all the changes coming to the mode. It seems like, in some regards, it’s going to be a completely different experience this time around.

If you’re excited about Black Ops Cold War’s iteration of Zombies but are hungry for more details, then you’ll be happy to know that Treyarch just delivered.

Thanks to a new blog post, the developer has given fans a deep dive into all the new changes coming to the game. While the developer ended up confirming a number of different features that previously leaked a few days back, they also revealed some wholly new information.

New perks for Zombies

While the developer officially confirmed the six perks that will be available at launch, including the exact statistics they will change, more will be announced when new maps get added to the game, in true Treyarch fashion.

The ones currently implemented, however, are sure to please longtime fans.

  • Jugger-Nog: 50% increase in health
  • Quick Revive: 50% increase in health regen speed
  • Speed Cola: 15% increase in reload speed
  • Stamin-Up: Increase in sprinting speed (percentage unclear)
  • Deadshot Daquri: ADS automatically moves sights to enemy weak spot (aim-assist)
  • Elemental Pop: Every bullet has a chance to apply random Ammo Mod effect

Black Ops Cold War Zombies weapons and scorestreaks

While weapon rarities isn’t new information for Black Ops Cold War Zombies, as it was previously announced by Treyarch during the initial reveal, the developer has finally gone into more detail about what it all means.

Like Warzone, each weapon that you pull from the wall or Mystery Box will be a certain weapon: Common, Uncommon, Rare, Epic, and Legendary. As expected, the higher the weapon rarity, the higher damage it deals and the more attachments it’ll have.

In addition, the mystery box will now contain scorestreaks on top of that, which was easily one of the coolest part of the original reveal trailer.

  • Combat Bow
  • Sentry Turret
  • War Machine
  • Chopper Gunner
  • Self-Revive

Right now, it’s unclear if the only way that players will be able to get their hands on these valuable items will be through the Mystery Box, although previous leaks have indicated that Zombies will also be able to drop them.

All weapons in Black Ops Cold War, including the ones pulled from Mystery Boxes, have rarities.

New Exfil feature

The final feature that Treyarch revealed new details about was the new Exfil feature, which allows players to end their match before they die. According to the devs, you’ll only be able to do this from Round 10 onwards.

That being said, if you’re able to reach the extraction point within the time allotted, you’ll receive extra XP, as well as some Raw Aetherium Crystals, which can be used to upgrade your weapons.

All of this, combined with all the leaks we know including the armor changes, the upgrade system, and the salvage system, which have now all been confirmed by Treyarch, makes it seem like this year’s iteration is going to be wild.
