Firebase Z's Mimic mini-bosses can hamper the Cold War Zombies experience if you're not careful. Here's how to keep them out of your hair.
The Mimics are an interesting addition to the world of Zombies. They're a formidable mini-boss that breaks up the flow of the game, for better and worse.
They're almost a camper preventative measure, keeping the game fresh and making sure the player keeps moving. After all, it does tend to get boring after a while, sitting in a corner spraying into hordes that are no match for you.
While Mimics are a divider for Firebase Z's gameplay, they still frustrate many players. The magic of Zombies is its versatility of play, allowing for any player to find fun in it. And for some, the Mimics are an impediment to that.
Often they'll spawn right in front of the player, or worse, right behind them. They can creep up on you when you least expect it and throw the entire game.
They also have a habit of keeping players from Easter egg hunts or pack-a-punching. In short, they often get in the way. And with them coming to the new Outbreak mode soon, they could become even more of an annoyance.
But, thankfully, there are a few ways you can see them off quickly. And in specific circumstances, use them to your advantage.
How To Escape Firebase Z's Mimics Easily
Often Firebase Z's mimic will grab you out of the blue, potentially dragging you back into the horde you've been training around the map. Not ideal, we know.
The trick to escaping their tendrils is to make a habit of slamming the jump button the moment the grabbing animation plays. If you can get into that habit, you'll be able to escape their clutches before they have a chance to drag you in.
If you want to take the Mimic out quick, get some distance from them and riddle their head with bullets. It might seem simple, but it'll get the job done.
However, you could actually use the grab to your advantage in an emergency.
After the grab, the Mimic will throw you a short distance. It's not ideal as they can be unpredictable with their aiming. And according to the Cold War Zombies subreddit, They might even throw you through a wall.
But, if you're in a total emergency, put it to use and it could save your life.
If you're in need of a new trick for Firebase Z too, here's a great glitch to help get you some free ammo for the Rai K-84.
