Season 6 of Black Ops Cold War is finally here, much to the excitement of the Zombies community that will be getting to grips with the brand-new Forsaken map, the fourth and final chapter of the Dark Aether storyline. As the battle between Requiem and Omega reaches its conclusion, Forsaken will contain a brand-new Easter Egg quest along with the return of a Perk long-time fans will be extremely familiar with.
An iteration of PhD Flopper is making its return in Season 6. Known as PhD Slider, the Perk enables players to slide into undead opposition to deal a bit of additional damage. Here's everything you need to know about PhD Slider, including all five Skill Tiers available to upgrade.
PhD Slider Zombies Perk Skill Tiers
As with every Perk in Cold War Zombies, there are a total of five upgradable Skill Tiers that provide a range of additional benefits when the Perk has been purchased. Here are the Skill Tiers available for PhD Slider:
- Skill Tier 1 - Immunity to environmental damage when sliding.
- Skill Tier 2 - Increased slide duration.
- Skill Tier 3 - Immunity to self-inflicted explosive damage.
- Skill Tier 4 - Increased slide speed.
- Skill Tier 5 - Falling from a large height will trigger an explosion, the size and damage will increase the higher you fall.
PhD Slider Perk Location
PhD Slider can be found at the very top of the map inside the Observation Tower. It's worth noting that you will take damage due to Aetherium Crystal radiation so be sure to grab it quickly before it's too late.
PhD Slider Perk Cost
Perks in Zombies cost a few thousand Essence to purchase and considering the huge number of benefits they provide, they're one of the main items that players must buy in order to make it into the higher rounds. The cost of Perks increases by 500 Essence depending on how many you already have, meaning you could get your hands on PhD Slider for as little as 2500 Essence.
Is PhD Slider Worth Getting?
Considering Tier 3 of PhD Slider grants immunity to any explosive damage that you deal, it makes a lot of sense to purchase this Perk in order to escape any sticky situations that you may find yourself in. Stuck in a corner with no way out? Throw grenades at the floor to clear Zombies out of the way and live to fight for another round!
