Treyarch describes the Tesla Storm as: “Whether you’re playing with friends or doing your own thing, Tesla Storm generates a devastating field of lightning around you, so all enemies will be stunned and damaged in close proximity. Coupled with a 25% movement speed boost at Tier V and the ability to stun and damage Elites at Tier V, this Field Upgrade has the potential to get you out of the stickiest of situations.

Tiers for the new Tesla Storm Field Upgrade:

  • Base Ability – For 10 seconds, lightning connects to other players, stunning and damaging normal enemies
  • Skill Tier I – Double the damage dealt to enemies stunned by Tesla Storm
  • Skill Tier II – Increase the duration to 15 seconds
  • Skill Tier III – Special enemies can be stunned and damaged by Tesla Storm
  • Skill Tier IV – Players generating a field gain 25% increased movement speed
  • Skill Tier V – Elite enemies can be stunned and damaged by Tesla Storm

As well as individual buffs to your own person, the incentive of stunning and immobilizing enemies in a large radius – even Elite enemies – is a tasty proposition.

Skill Tier II looks to be a vital one to upgrade early as those extra, precious seconds could be the difference between success and failure.

There are new details on the new Cold War Zombies round-based map, and Tesla Storm could be the perfect accompaniment for it as well as for any other existing Zombies maps.
