Major credit for Black Ops Cold War’s success also goes to its Zombies mode. With a fresh storyline, the return of major Zombies characters, and interesting new modes has definitely caught the attention of a lot of fans. Therefore,  Treyarch is playing around with balances in the Zombies mode to keep the players on their feet.

The developers nerfed a set of weapons as a part of these changes, which has completely shifted the meta.

This article has a list of 5 weapons that are now the most powerful in the Zombies mode. Moreover, there is also a bit of information on how to best use these weapons and their advantages. The list is a part of YouTube Channel COD Zombies HQ‘s recent video.

Top 5 weapons in Black Ops Cold War Zombies

5. MP5– This sub-machine gun is one of the most versatile guns in Call of Duty games. Naturally, it is also one of the best weapons, reaching the top 5 in Cold War Zombies.

The range of attachments available for the MP5 allows players to give an almost zero recoil. Moreover, the right attachments also increase the magazine size of the gun as well as increase its mobility. With high ADS movement speed, the MP5 is a run-and-gun headshot machine.

4. M1911– The single-fire pistol might come as a surprise to most, but it deserves every bit of its rank. Being a pistol, it is highly mobile. It also doesn’t run out really fast as players need to tap and shoot every bullet unlike burst or automatic weapons. Finally, its high damage coupled with the significantly high headshot multiplier makes the gun a hand cannon.

3. GALO SA12– A top 5 Zombies weapons list would not be complete without a shotgun. The SA12 is a semi-auto shotgun that packs a punch. Players can run into hordes firing the weapons and cleanse the map. They can also increase the rate of fire by tapping instead of holding.

2. M16– Another popular Call of Duty weapon is the burst-fire assault rifle, M16. The gun has decent damage but with a 6 round burst and ADS, it can shred through anything. It also is equally effective in the close range, as when hip-fired, the bursts can take out anyone who stands in the way.

1. Hauer 77– Naturally, the list is topped by another shotgun from Black Ops Cold War. The Hauer 77 is a pump-action shotgun that acts as a one-shot snipe machine against zombies. With the right attachments, including the extended mag, the perfect laser, and the barrel, this gun becomes unbeatable.
