Best Guns To Use In Die Maschine Cold War Zombies

Black Ops Cold War marks the beginning of a new era for Call of Duty Zombies.

The mode has seen several innovations introduced ranging from armor to weapon rarities.

Now, Treyarch has possibly released their best map for zombies YET!

The game mode is fantastic, and there is a wide array of weapons to use in the game.

As well, players are able to spawn into the map with the weapon of their choice, making the combinations endless.

So, what are the best weapons to use on Die Maschine? 

Here are our recommendations! 



Starting off the game you will have the option to spawn in with one of your custom weapon classes.

While you could opt for an XM4 or the MP5, by far the best weapon you can use is the Knife.

This will be a one-hit kill until around round 10-13; and will also grant you bonus points since it is a melee weapon.

Do not overlook the Knife, as it is quickly becoming the go-to weapon.

Fans of the zombies game mode may have noticed how powerful the Spas-12 has become.

This weapon can be obtained via purchasing it off the wall by the downed airplane.

It will be blue in rarity and will come equipped with a holographic sight and silencer.

The key to obtaining this weapon's true power is to Pack-A-Punch it, then equip the Napalm ammo modification.

This will make it a one-shot to the head for the majority of the rounds, and it will reload four shells at once rather than just one. 




An LMG that is regarded as one of the all-time greats for zombies reigns supreme yet again.

The best RPD variant you can find within zombies will come from the box.

Pack-A-Punching will greatly increase the damage, and if you have Speed Cola maxed out via crystals; it will reload significantly faster.

Mowing down your train of zombies will be a joy with this weapon! 


Ray Gun

We cannot talk about the best weapons to use in zombies and not talk about Porter's X2 Ray Gun.

It appears the Ray Gun is harder to obtain from the box more than ever in Die Maschine, but that may be because of how powerful it is. 

It is once again one of the most powerful weapons in the game, and it will dominate every round!

D.I.E. Electrobolt

Last on our list is the electric variant of the D.I.E weapon.

We have covered how to obtain this variant on our full easter egg guide, which can be found here.

This weapon will decimate the boss zombies, which are among the hardest zombies we have ever had to go up against!
