New Firebase Z Monkey Bomb Easter Egg Makes Zombies Dance

The latest Firebase Z Easter egg to be discovered will make zombies dance when interacting with the Black Ops Cold War Zombies Monkey Bomb.

The Cymbal Monkey, known to the Black Ops Cold War Zombies community as the Monkey Bomb, is one of the most useful items in the game.

By tossing this windup monkey, players can attract the undead to its position. After clapping its cymbals a few times, the bomb explodes, leaving only pieces of zombie flesh in its wake.

Monkey Bombs are a great way to take the pressure off you, especially during the Firebase Z Elder God boss fight. However, it turns out that the items are also part of a secret new Easter Egg.

Today marks the discovery of a brand-new Firebase Z Easter egg, that makes zombies breakdance in-game.

This new find comes courtesy of Glitching Queen on YouTube, who recently also found a way to play Dance Dance Revolution on Firebase Z.

Now, not only has the Zombies fan solved the mystery of the Jump Pads, she's also cracked the secrets of the Monkey Bomb too.

It turns out, it's possible to upgrade the Cymbal Monkeys in order to have the equipment play a quick hip hop tune before blowing up.

Meanwhile, any zombies drawn to the noise will begin to dance to the song before dying. We last saw Cold War Zombies dancing during Die Maschine's Coffin Dance Easter egg, so we know they're good at showing us the moves.

However, as with many Firebase Z Easter eggs, this one is a little tricky to just stumble across.

How to Upgrade Monkey Bombs in Firebase Z

To upgrade your Monkey Bombs to make zombies dance in Firebase Z, here are the steps you must follow:

  • First, craft several Cymbal Monkeys from the crafting station, or pick them up from rare zombie drops. You'll need at least 3 for this Easter egg.
  • Next, head to either the Military Command Aether Reactor, or the Mission Control Aether Reactor.
  • Wait until a major zombie horde is incoming, and toss a Monkey Bomb.
  • Once you've got 50 kills in the area with Monkey Bombs alone, your next Cymbal Monkey will be upgraded.

And just like that, you've got a way to make zombies dance on cue!

Another new Firebase Z Easter egg gives players a free Wonder Weapon and Perk, and this one is even easier to accomplish!
