Cold War Zombies Firebase Z pack-a-punch machine

Thanks to a secret change in the Black Ops Cold War Season 5 update, Zombies players can now keep their own weapon camos and Blueprints after using the Pack-a-Punch machine.

Since Gunsmith Customs was added to Black Ops Cold War, you can take your own custom weapon and Blueprint into Zombies. Even if you get a weapon from the wall or Mystery Box, you can simply open up the menus and select your ideal attachments and camo.
