There are a number of free Perk Cans to collect in MW3 Zombies, allowing you to rack up in-game boosts without spending any cash.

Perks are an essential part of any Call of Duty Zombies experience. Each drink gives players a boost in-game, by offering unique effects to help increase your survivability.

Usually, you have to pay for the privilege, using either MWZ’s Perk Machines or by spending your time completing contracts. However, there are a few ways to get your hands on Perks, completely free of charge.

Here are all the free Perk Cans that MWZ fans can get for free:

How to Get All Free Perks

Using the Easter eggs below, one player can get each of the following Perks in each game:

Bear in mind that your teammates won’t be able to replicate the process. This free Perk trick only works once, and it only allows the player who performed the Easter egg to claim the reward.

However, if you choose to stow the Perk instead of using it, you can always drop it for your team instead.

Deadshot Daiquiri

To get a free Deadshot Daiquiri Perk in MW3 Zombies, players need to throw a Semtex through the top window of the monastery at Abtal Academy.

Where to Get Free Deadshot Daiquiri in MW3 Zombies

First, make sure you either spawn into MWZ with a Semtex or find one in a container.

You’ll want to stand on a headstone on the south side of the monastery and aim your cursor at the top of the roof.

Stand on this headstone, and aim through the window above.

Throw the Semtex through the very top window of the building so that it falls inside. If you miss your throw, there’s an Ammo Cache at the front of the monastery, which will refresh your equipment slots.

If aimed correctly, a Reward Rift will spawn next to you, with a free Deadshot Daiquiri Perk Can inside!

Death Perception

To get a free Death Perception Perk in MW3 Zombies, players need to climb to the top of a smokestack at Sorokin Industrial and parachute through three rings in the nearby art installation without touching the ground.

Although it takes some quick maneuvering, Death Perception is a relatively easy Perk to get your hands on.

Simply climb up the smokestack in Sorokin Industrial, located at the very north side of the MW3 Zombies map, by using the two ladders on its side.

The Rings to Fly Through for Free Death Perception

Then, you’ll want to pull your parachute as soon as you jump off the top, and head southeast to the nearby art installation that depicts three rings.

Parachuting through the art installation

Fly through each ring in one smooth motion (we suggest starting on the right-hand side before pulling left).

Then, when you touch the ground, a Reward Rift will offer you a free Death Perception Perk Can!

Elemental Pop

To get a free Elemental Pop Perk in MW3 Zombies, players must sacrifice a high-tier weapon by paying respect to a grave in Seatown, inside the Tier 3 area.

Where to Find Free Elemental Pop Easter egg in MW3 Zombies

Be warned, this one isn’t as simple as all the rest of the free Perk Easter eggs.

To get your hands on Elemental Pop for free, you’ll need to take a high-tier weapon such as a Pack-a-Punched, legendary-tier gun with an Ammo Mod to the grave in Seatown.

Elemental Pop Grave in MW3 Zombies

Interact with the grave to Pay Your Respects, and your gun will be brought back to its base rarity, with no Pack-a-Punch or Ammo Mods.

However, a Reward Rift will then spawn, giving you Aetherium Crystals and Aether Tools that can take your weapon back to the power level it once was. The more powerful the weapon you sacrifice, the better chance you have of obtaining high-tier rewards.

And in addition, Elemental Pop will often spawn too, though its appearance is not guaranteed.

Regardless, this is definitely the Elemental Pop Easter egg, as no other Perk Cans spawn at this location.


To get a free Juggernog Perk in MW3 Zombies, players need to use a Molotov to light a campfire in Al-Abboud Condos, just east of Seaport District.

Where to Get Free Juggernog Perk in MW3 Zombies

You can choose to spawn into MWZ with a Molotov, so we highly advise sticking the Lethal in your starting loadout.

Molotovs are also common loot found around the open-world in containers, so it should be easy to replace if you need to use it before you reach the fire.

Use a Molotov on the Campfire in MW3 Zombies

Simply throw your Molotov at the unlit campfire next to the blue bunny and a Reward Rift will appear, giving you a free Juggernog Perk in MW3 Zombies.

PhD Flopper

To get a free PhD Flopper Perk in MW3 Zombies, players need to stand on the roof of Shahin Manor and jump directly from the roof into the pool outside.

Shahin Manor in MW3 Zombies

This is an incredibly simple Perk Can to get your hands on, so it’s one you shouldn’t miss.

Simply climb onto the roof of Shahin Manor and take a running jump to reach the water.

The Shahin Manor Pool in Urzikstan

You don’t need to Dolphin Dive, just a regular jump will do.

However, you will want to be holding either a light weapon or just using your fists to gain sufficient speed – don’t attempt this with an LMG in hand!

Once you’ve hit the water, you’ll see a Reward Rift spawn nearby, containing a PhD Flopper Perk Can.

Speed Cola

To get a free Speed Cola Perk in MW3 Zombies, players need to get a vehicle and drive up the bird statue in Levin Resort, before landing on the road below it.

Like PhD Flopper, Speed Cola couldn’t be simpler to get for free in MWZ. First, get yourself a vehicle. Then, head to the very top left of the Tier 2 Zone (shown as orange on the map), just east of Levin Resort.

The Bird Statue in MWZ

You can see a stone bird statue with a red arrow on its tail feathers, indicating that you need to drive up the bird’s back. Do so, and launch yourself off the head, landing on the road below.

Driving up the Bird Statue in MW3 Zombies

This will cause a Reward Rift to spawn, containing a Speed Cola Perk Can.

To get a free Stamin-Up Perk in MW3 Zombies, you need to run up 15 flights of stairs in the tallest building in Quadri Shopping Center, in Zaravan City.

Where to Get Free Stamin-Up Perk in MW3 Zombies

We recommend dropping one weapon so that you’re able to have your fists out, or carrying a light weapon like a pistol or a knife.

After all, you’ll need to get to the top of the stairs as fast as possible once you begin your ascent. From what we can tell, you want to keep running in one continuous sprint, rather than repeatedly Tactical Sprinting.

Running up the stairs in Urzikstan

You also cannot stop at any point, including to plate up or kill zombies.

Run up all 15 flights of stairs and a Rewards Rift will spawn at the top, containing a Stamin-Up Perk Can.

If the Rift doesn’t spawn, it’s possible that you weren’t fast enough. Try dropping your weapon and beginning the climb again.

Tombstone Soda

To get a free Tombstone Soda Perk in MW3 Zombies, players need to use a sniper rifle scope to zoom in and place a Ping on the blue bunny who is sitting on a crane.

Where to Get Free Tombstone Soda in MW3 Zombies

There is no set place to do this, but we recommend heading to one of the marked rooftops in Al-Dahr Estates.

That way, you’ve got an easy sightline on the bunny, at least through your rifle scope! Press Up on the D-Pad or middle-mouse button to Ping the stuffed toy.

Blue Stuffed Bunny on a Crane in Urzikstan

Be warned, however, that the moment you accurately place the Ping directly on the bunny to complete this Easter egg, you’ll get a jumpscare with the stuffed animal suddenly appearing up in your face.

Afterward, the Rift Reward containing the Tombstone Soda Perk Can will spawn, so it’s not all bad news.

Quick Revive

To get a free Quick Revive Perk in MW3 Zombies, players need to get a fast vehicle and race from one highway sign to the next before the time expires.

First, head to this section of highway, just southwest of Hadiqa Farms. Here, you’ll see a sign over the highway with a blue rabbit sitting on top of it.

The Start of the Time Trial in MW3 Zombies

Up on the highway ahead, heading north, there’s a similar sign with a rabbit symbol on it too.

Get a fast vehicle, such as an ATV and take it to one of the two signs. Stop beneath the first sign and you’ll hear a laugh sound.

Driving an ATV on the Highway MWZ

This is your signal to race to the opposing sign as fast as you can. Complete your time trial in a quick enough time and you’ll see a Reward Rift spawn, containing a free Quick Revive Perk Can.

That’s all of the current free Perk Easter eggs that have been discovered in MWZ so far!

We’ll keep this article updated as secret hunters continue to explore the zombie-infested Urzikstan.
