LATEST - Mule Kick Skill Tiers Confirmed

Every Black Ops Cold War Zombies Perk-A-Cola has five upgradable Skill Tiers. These, alongside the base use of the Perk-A-Cola, make for exciting upgrades to existing Zombies content.

For example, you can upgrade Jugger-Nog to increase your HP up to 250 when bought, rather than 150!

Mule Kick isn't going to be any different and we have everything you need to know about what Skill Tiers are being added with this perk. Check them out below:

  • Base ability: Carry a third primary weapon.
  • Skill Tier I: Crafted Equipment grants an additional Equipment if able.
  • Skill Tier II: All enemies have a small chance to drop ammo.
  • Skill Tier III: Stowed weapons slowly refill ammo from stock.
  • Skill Tier IV: 25% chance to keep non-retrievable Equipment when used.
  • Skill Tier V: Third primary weapon is recovered when repurchasing Mule Kick.

First Look At Perk Machine

Following the new Gameplay Trailer, Treyarch has given us our first look at the redesigned Mule Kick perk machine! As you might imagine, it's got a bunch of gun barrels sticking out of it and lots of bright lights.

As Perk Machine designs go, it actually looks like one of the better ones. You can check it out below (It's a screencap, so be nice):

Mauer Der Toten Perk Confirmed

Treyarch doesn't waste time with their teasers, do they? It turns out "in the coming days" means "tomorrow" to the Black Ops Cold War developers and they've already given us a glimpse of the new Zombies perk we're going to be seeing in Mauer Der Toten!

As you can see below, Mule Kick is going to be the next perk to be added to Black Ops Cold War's Zombies modes. This perk allows the user to carry a third weapon at its base level.


Black Ops Cold War's Zombies features upgradable perks, via Aether Crystals, and we're not sure what Mule Kick could offer in that regard. We're expecting something to do with more Lethals and Tacticals, maybe even an enhancement to your chosen Skill.

We're expecting to hear more in the coming days, but for now, we know what we're getting.


What Could The Next New Perk Be?

At the moment, we don't know which new perk is coming to Black Ops Cold War's Zombies through the Mauer Der Toten map update. We know which perks it could be, thanks to a few leaks, but there's no evidence to suggest any one of them is going to pop up next.

Double Tap and PHD are the other two most prominently talked about perks in relation to Black Ops Cold War Zombies and we're anticipating that both of these could be added in future updates.

Originally, the leaks we're discussing also mentioned Tombstone Soda. As we now know, that was added to the game in Firebase Z. There's a bit of credibility there and all the perks mentioned are also pre-existing Zombies perks.
