Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Zombies: How To Freeze The Timer In Cranked

While a lot of focus has been on the official announcement of the second map for Black Ops Cold War Zombies, the launch of Season One Reloaded has seen a further wave of content arrive to the popular survival mode.

Inspired by the fast-paced multiplayer game mode Cranked, the Zombies version is very similar as players battle against the clock in order to avoid an explosive ending to the match.

For some players, even the increased reload speed and movement speed isn’t enough to stop the countdown timer from hitting zero.

For those struggling to stay cranked, a new glitch that has been discovered could give you a helping hand.

Here’s how to freeze the timer and survive for longer in Cranked!

How To Freeze The Timer In Cranked

First discovered by Zombies content creator Caspahz, a glitch has been found which makes the Cranked timer disappear completely.

To make the timer freeze, acquire a Cruise Missile or a Chopper Gunner support streak and wait for the Cranked timer to count down.

With three seconds remaining, call in the streak but DO NOT use it to eliminate any of the Zombies that are attempting to catch you.

Once the streak has been called in, the timer will have disappeared, giving you unlimited amounts of time to slay the undead.

Will There Be A Fix?

In comparison to Black Ops Cold War and Warzone, there have been a minimal number of bugs and glitches to be discovered in Zombies.

The most recent exploit involved players managing to duplicate the powerful Ray Gun thanks to a bug with the Pack-A-Punch machine.

Zombies developer Treyarch was quick to rectify the weapon duplication glitch and it’s more than likely that the developer will implement some form of fix as a hotfix in the coming days.
