COD Black OPS Zombie Power Ups List

Random power ups will drop as you kill zombies, these power ups can make a huge difference. Some will totally turn the tide in your favor, while others are simply utility power ups each having their own distinct advantages.


This will look like a glowing bomb floating in the air. Best used when there are a huge amount of zombies on the map, or if you feel that you will be overwhelmed. Using this power up will destroy all zombies on the map.


A very useful Black Ops zombie power up in Call Of Duty, as it will repair all barricades back to full instantly. Carpenter will look like a big gold hammer, of course it is always best to do this manually if you can.

Insta Kill:

Just as the name says a single bullet will kill anything you hit. This is the perfect time to show the zombie's who is boss with your pistol to save ammo on your primary gun.

Double Points:

Every zombie you kill will give double points while Double Points is active.

Max Ammo:

This is the most commonly found power up in game currently. It will refill your ammo to max, great when used with mystery box weapons.

Death Machine:

Death Machine is a chain/mini gun that allows you to devastate zombies for a short time.

Fire Sale:

This is a random box that will show up in various locations on the map, and only costs $10.00 but also does not last very long.


Not really considered a power up however not to be forgotten either. Different traps have various effects, which is why they are best saved to be used when you surpass round 15 that way you don't waste money. Traps can make the difference between life, and death so never forget to use them when needed.

**Note this was accurate as of game release, and will soon be updated**
