Cold War: Firebase Z Trailer Reveals Mimics, Pack-a-Punch, Scorestreaks

A new gameplay trailer for Firebase Z reveals some exciting new content coming to the Cold War Zombies map.

The new map for Black Ops Cold War Zombies releases tomorrow, and Firebase Z promises to be a lot of fun. Despite it being almost two months since the game's launch, the Zombies experience so far has been rather lackluster.

That's not to say that Die Maschine was poorly received, in fact, quite the opposite. But launching a new Call of Duty title with only a single Zombies map was a major disappointment for fans.

Now, Treyarch looks to be making up for the delay with another incredible Zombies experience.

And a new trailer for Firebase Z reveals Mimic Zombies, new mechanics, and much more!

Black Ops Cold War Zombies: Firebase Z New Gameplay Trailer

Recently, Treyarch released a new "Inside Firebase Z" trailer for Cold War Zombies. This new footage revealed some exciting new content for the upcoming experience, but it also answered some of our biggest questions about the map.

Cold War Zombies: Firebase Z Mimics Explained

There's a new enemy type in Firebase Z that players need to know about before dropping in. We'd seen Mimics teased in previous Cold War intel, but now the undead enemies are finally here.

Mimics will hide across the Firebase Z map, disguised as items. In the trailer, we see the enemy jump out at a player who approaches some ammo.

However, we also know that Mimics can disguise themselves as weapons and other items to sneak up on their prey.

From the gameplay trailer, we see that a Mimic appears at around Round 13, and they put up quite a fight. Not only is the powerful enemy a real bullet sponge, but they also deal some big damage.

The enemy can grapple players with its tentacles, and deal a devastating bite to those in its grasp. Be sure to work together with allies to take them down.

Where Is the Firebase Z Pack-a-Punch?

The new trailer also answered our biggest question - where is the Firebase Z Pack-a-Punch? As players teleport between the Firebase outpost and the village starting area, we now know the item's location.

It looks like we'll be returning to the village to Pack-a-Punch our weaponry in Firebase Z. You'll be able to find the Pack-a-Punch machine next to Ravenov's office at the start of the game.

However, you'll probably need to turn on the power in Firebase Z before returning to upgrade your guns.

We'll be creating a new Pack-a-Punch guide for Firebase Z when the map launches tomorrow.

New Scorestreaks Coming to Black Ops Cold War Zombies

It seems that not only are new Scorestreaks in the works for Black Ops Cold War Multiplayer, Zombies is getting a few too.

Alongside returning support craftables like the Combat Bow and War Machine, players can now create Artillery, and Napalm Strikes.

These powerful Scorestreaks are certain to help with the Firebase Z assault waves. In these specific instances, players are tasked with protecting an area from incoming waves of undead.

There are sure to be more Black Ops Cold War Zombies reveals coming with the Firebase Z release tomorrow. In the meantime, check out the full Firebase Z map layout here.

Firebase Z also has a new powerful gun to discover. Here's everything we know about the Cold War Zombies Firebase Z Wonder Weapon - the R.A.I. K-84.

And Firebase Z is unlikely to be the only new addition to Zombies mode. After all 2 new Cold War Zombies maps just leaked ahead of Season 2.
