“Sliding into enemies triggers an explosion. The size and damage increases the farther you slide before impact.”

Players can also take advantage of other effects by using their Aetherium Crystals to level up the perk’s skill tiers, including full immunity to self-inflicted explosive damage and the ability to trigger an explosive payload after falling from a vertical distance, and more.

As with other Wonder Weapons, players will have to complete a quest to obtain it, but once they have, they can wield it like a Battle Axe or convert it to a rapid-fire energy weapon.

New Zombies Support Weapons – ARC-XD and Hand Cannon

Hand Cannon Support Weapon

Black Ops Cold War Season 6 will see the arrival of two new support weapons for players to use against Zombies. You can find these two new Support Weapons and their official descriptions below:

ARC-XD —The Aether Remote-Controlled Explosive Device (ARC-XD) is an advanced Support Weapon fitted with an Aetherium Crystal that acts as a decoy, emitting a sound to draw enemy attention. The ARC-XD will continually pulse a small Aether blast that can kill normal enemies and launch them on contact. It is capable of fitting through tight crawl spaces, yet powerful enough to send a group of undead soldiers back to their graves.

Hand Cannon —Originally found as a hidden weapon in the Campaign and introduced to Multiplayer in Season Four, the Hand Cannon joins Zombies as one of Season Six’s Support Weapons. Hindered only by a strong vertical kick and slow rate of fire, the Hand Cannon can blast away zombies with ease, especially Special and Elite enemies with precision shots.”
