Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War Zombies: Do Skill Upgrades Affect Wonder Weapons?

Published 05/16/2021, 5:24 AM EDT


Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War has been out for a few months now, and is currently going through Season 3. The game’s user-base is primarily divided into two factions, which include multiplayer fans and Zombies fans. While the former seem satisfied with the content released so far, the latter have frequently complained about the lack of it.

Season 2 was the only season where Zombies fans got a lot of content to explore. In contrast, Season 1 and the latest Season 3 have failed to impress the players.

Amidst all the drama, a doubt that has been consistent in the Zombies community is regarding Wonder Weapons. Apparently, many players are still not aware of the impact of the skill upgrades on them.

A comparison between upgraded and non-upgraded Wonder Weapons in Black Ops Cold War

The best way to test the claims around skills upgrades and Wonder Weapons is to compare their statistics. To do so, YouTuber LegoUnlocked used two accounts, out of which one had all the skill upgrades maxed, and the other had skill upgrades at default levels.

Based on these results, it is evident that the skill upgrades in Black Ops Cold War do not affect the Wonder Weapons. The only change we witnessed was in the Tier 5 D.I.E. Shockwave’s suck damage. However, it is not because of any skill upgrade, but owing to the health of the enemies.

Here’s the video by LegoUnlocked where he conducted the tests.

As per leaks, Treyarch is planning to introduce a lot of new maps and game modes for Zombies with the upcoming updates. These will most probably include a map that is based in Berlin, and others that represent the Zoo, Battery, and Mines from the rumored Ural Mountains map.

Activision has also clarified that it might start taking bigger breaks between releasing new Call of Duty games now. Accordingly, each game will have a longer time span. Hence, it is safe to assume that the DLC for Zombies in BOCW will roll out until 2022.
