Cold War Zombies Bug Gives Player Billions of Free Aetherium Crystals

There's a new helpful Black Ops Cold War Zombies bug out there, giving players billions of free Aetherium Crystals.

Black Ops Cold War Season 2 has only been out for a couple of days, and already one player has racked up billions of additional Aetherium Crystals.

The new Flawless and Refined Aetherium Crystals, together with the Raw variant, are useful when it comes to upgrading your in-game equipment. These consumable items can boost your Perks, weapons, and Field Upgrades in Cold War's Zombies mode.

The higher tier consumables, the new Flawless and Refined Aetherium Crystals will only drop for the best Zombies players.

However, there's a new way to earn Flawless and Refined Crystals fast in Black Ops Cold War Zombies.

Billions of Free Aetherium Crystals in Cold War Zombies Glitch

This player needs no help getting their hands on the Aetherium Crystals, after being awarded billions of free tokens in a weird Cold War Zombies glitch.

Despite not even being max level in Black Ops Cold War, one player finds themselves with billions of free Crystals.

With an inventory consisting of 2.5 billion Raw and Refined Aetherium Crystals, and 2.9 billion Flawless Crystals, the user quickly upgraded everything to max level.

Sadly, since the user wasn't high enough level, they were unable to boost Cold War's best Field Upgrades such as Healing Aura and Ring of Fire. However, assuming that they keep this new Crystal bounty, the player will be able to easily upgrade them later on.

According to Apartofmyself on Reddit, the glitch occurred when the user logged into Black Ops Cold War. There was no special trick to the free Crystal exploit, and the event may just trigger at random.

However, some users speculate that the bug is caused by a crash occurring prior to the 'issue' arising.

This isn't the only exploit cropping up in Black Ops Cold War Zombies Season 2. After all, there's a new way to get insane weapon XP in Outbreak mode that's certainly getting a patch soon.

There's also a new bug that gives players unlimited ammo in the Death Machine when playing Zombies. This is sure to make surviving those high-level rounds that much easier.

Is this for any version or a specific console?
