PhD Flopper isn't quite coming back to Call of Duty Zombies - but, PhD Slider is here to make up for it. These two Perk-a-Cola are essentially the same, but one caters to Black Ops Cold War's lack of a diving mechanic in-game. If you're wondering what PhD Slider does, we have all the Tier upgrades for you below.

TIER UPGRADES - What does PhD Slider do?

PhD Slider is going to operate in the same capacity as PhD Flopper - as the name would suggest, but there are a few things worth keeping an eye out for. Here are all the PhD Slider Tier upgrades, if you are looking for a place to spend your Aetherium Crystals...

  • Base Ability
    • Sliding into enemies triggers an explosion. The size and damage increase the farther you slide before impact
  • Skill Tier I
    • Immunity to environmental damage while sliding
  • Skill Tier II
    • Increased slide duration
  • Skill Tier III
    • Immunity to self-inflicted explosive damage
  • Skill Tier IV
    • Increased slide speed
  • Skill Tier V
    • Falling from a large height will trigger an explosion. The size and damage increase the higher you fall

You can get your hands on these PhD Slider Tier upgrades by spending your Aetherium Crystals in the Skills menu. It's important to note, though, that you'll need rarer Aetherium Crystals for the higher Tiers. The standard stuff isn't going to cut it for long!

RELEASE DATE - When does it get added to Zombies?

PhD Slider is going to be added to Cold War Zombies at the same time as the new round-based Zombies map - Forsaken - and all the Season 6 content.

This means you will be able to find PhD Slider in-game from the following times:

  • 21:00 October 6th PST
  • 23:00 October 6th EST
  • 04:00 October 7th BST

PhD Slider will have its own Perk-a-Cola machine on Forsaken - however, you'll also be able to find it in the Der Wunderfizz machine on Die Maschine, Firebase Z, Mauer der Toten, and in Outbreak. It should also pop up occasionally as loot now that it's added to the selection of Cold War Zombies Perks.
