Black Ops Cold War has many amazing and incredible weapons for Zombies players to enjoy. To get the most out of Mauer Der Toten, ensure you have the right weapons, and follow our tips to survive even longer.

Die Maschine provided players with a huge, and tight, map to cover, Firebase Z required teleporting back and forth, and Mauer Der Toten requires lots of verticality and maneuvering to master. It has lots of cool features and fun helping hands to assist you.

Our comprehensive guide will suggest the weapons to master Mauer Der Toten, and we also have a few handy tips involving the new Wonder Weapon and the helpful Klaus robot.

1. Best weapons to use in Mauer Der Toten Zombies

The meta is always changing in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, meaning what works now didn’t necessarily work a few months ago.

Mauer Der Toten demands the game’s best weapons to master it, and here’s what we recommend you try out.

Gallo SA12

Quite possibly the most destructive and best weapon to use in CoD Zombies. It has a better fire rate than the Hauer 77 Shotgun and has superior reload times compared to the brutal Streetsweeper. The Gallo can be effective all the way into the game’s later rounds and is unreal for crowd control.

Krig 6

Deadly accurate and a healthy clip size makes the Krig 6 a super weapon to use in Mauer Der Toten. Pack-a-Punch turns it into an even more formidable force to be reckoned with as well.

Stoner 63

Another favorable option to consider is the dominant Stoner 63 LMG. The obvious benefit of opting for the Stoner is its incredible clip size. With the Speed Cola Perk always in your inventory, the Stoner’s reloading becomes far less of a headache and you can just wail on a horde of Zombies forever.

2. Turn on the power & Pack-a-Punch

A classic method to keeping up with the ever-increasing difficulty of Call of Duty Zombies. Mauer Der Toten once again offers a Pack-a-Punch machine for you to give your weapon some extra punch and bite.

We have full guides on how to turn the power in Mauer Der Toten, and also how to Pack-a-Punch your weapon in Treyarch’s latest Zombies offering.

3. Mystery Box

Competent Zombies players will know how to get the job done and survive for a fair share of rounds. It’s possible to have a fully Pack-a-Punched gun and your dream loadout of Perks and Equipment.

But to cope with the overwhelming odds that later rounds throw at you, you ideally need a Wonder Weapon to help you on your way. If you have points to spare, then we recommend a trip to the Mystery Box every now and again. Plus, the later you venture into the rounds, the higher the chances of acquiring a Wonder Weapon like the Ray Gun.

4. Use the Tower Turrets

As part of Mauer Der Toten’s character and personality, it adds a few nifty little extras that you can use to give yourself a bit of breathing space.

Next to the Pack-a-Punch machine are two guarded areas with spotlights. If the volume of Zombies becomes a bit too much, lure them towards one of these Towers, pay 2000 Points to activate its trap, and wait for the turrets to mow down the undead.

5. Build Klaus

A useful companion that can kill Zombies and revive players, Klaus takes a few steps to rebuild and make operational again.

He’s also required to get a free CRBR-S Wonder Weapon too, meaning that you should definitely try to get Klaus as early as possible.

6. Always use Der Wunderfizz Machine

With the addition of the new Mule Kick Perk, this means that Mauer Der Toten now has seven different Perk Machines scattered around the map.

Our recommendation is to avoid individual machines and instead concentrate on utilizing the Wunderfizz Machine. It has all seven Perks in one convenient spot, and it also requires a zipline to get to, meaning it’s protected from most of a round’s Zombies.

7. Get the CRBR-S Wonder Weapon for free

Unlike most Easter Eggs and secrets in Call of Duty Zombies, getting a free CRBR-S Wonder Weapon is actually quite straightforward in comparison.

Again, we’ve put together a detailed guide here that will show you to acquire and upgrade it, and once you have it, prioritize Pack-a-Punching it, and you will have an unbelievable weapon of great power.

8. Upgrade your armor, weapon level

Many people seem to overlook the significance of upgrading Armor Level and Weapon Rarity. Armor Level becomes vital the longer you go on in Zombies, so getting to Level 3 and replenishing it is essential.

Furthermore, even if your weapon is Pack-a-Punched, you could still be missing out on vital DPS by only having it Rare instead of Legendary.

9. Make use of the Mauer Der Toten’s verticality

One of Mauer Der Toten’s standout aspects is its use of levels to freshen up the gameplay. You start out on a rooftop, eventually descend to the street level below, and inevitably make your way underground.

Don’t forget to keep using ziplines, ascend and descend as these are great ways to alleviate some of the pressure of Zombies breathing down your neck.
