Turning on the power is the first step that players will need to do in the recently released Firebase Z zombies map for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. It’s after turning on the power that players will be able to access the entire map, unlock things like Pack-a-Punch, and solve the Easter Egg. In this guide, we’ve detailed everything there’s to know about how to activate the power in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War zombies Firebase Z.
How to Turn On Power in Black Ops Cold War Zombies Firebase Z
After spawning, players will need to make their way to Ravenov in the Atrium – he should be on the right side of Pack-a-Punch. Speaking with Ravenov will inform players that they need to access the Teleporter on the roof to be able to turn on the power.
After speaking with Ravenov, open the locked door leading to the Equipment Storage and head over to the roof to reach the Teleporter. Interacting with the Teleporter will teleport players to the Firebase Z. After arriving in the Firebase Z, players will need to find a total of three Aether Reactors in the area.
After they get to an Aether Reactor, they’ll need to activate it and defend the nearby Collection Unit from zombies. In addition to this, players will also need to kill zombies near the Collection Unit to charge it. The top-left of the screen will show players the damage sustained by the Collection Unit and the charge progress. Once a Collection Unit has been fully charged, the Aether Reactor will turn from blue to purple.
Players will need to repeat the process three times for all the Aether Reactors in the Firebase Z. As for the locations of these Aether Reactors, players will find them in the following areas:
- Mission Control
- Military Command
- Data Center
It’s also important to remember that opening doors and activating the Aether Reactors will cost a lot of points so make sure to start doing it after a few rounds. Once all three Aether Reactors have been activated and Collection Units charged, the entire map will have the power.
In order to access the Pack-a-Punch, players will need to return to the Teleporter on the Helipad and head back to the village. Once back in the village, return to the Atrium and speak with Ravenov to start using the Pack-a-Punch. Pretty simple! For each upgrade, players will need to pay an increasing amount of cost.
