Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War’s Zombies mode has players addicted to both its satisfying gameplay loop and in-depth easter egg. Being able to discover all the map’s intricacies is a joy while getting more powerful weapons and wiping out zombies doesn’t get old. One of the new features of this year’s Zombies mode is Exfil, giving you the ability to escape while getting some of the valuable new Aether Crystals. In this guide, I’ll explain just how to exfil in Cold War Zombies and what you’ll need to pull it off successfully.
How to Exfil in Cold War Zombies
In order to exfil in Cold War Zombies, you must first wait till either the start of Round 11 or an interval of five from that (16, 21, 26…). Once that round number starts, Weaver will prompt you with the ability to exfil the strike team. Your group must agree to an exfil, so make sure your teammates are ready to as well. Once you activate it, you’ll have to get to the Pond and eliminate all zombies in the area. This includes Megatons and the Megaton bombers, so make sure you have a weapon with high damage. If you can successfully clear the zombies out within a minute and half, you’ll evac the area and get free Aether Crystals.
This challenge is pretty difficult though, but there are thankfully a few things you can do to mitigate its difficulty. The first thing you can do in Cold War Zombies is to craft a Chopper Gunner at one of the various crafting tables. If you’re unsure of where those are, you can find one in the Yard you start at and in the Tunnel leading to the control room. When exfilling, you can use this to mow down tons of zombies and make your job that much easier. I suggest only one person get this though, as you can’t have two up at one time. The rest of your teammates should get whatever scorestreaks they prefer, as they’ll help tremendously.

As well, make sure you’re stocked up on as many perks, upgrades, and ammo as you can. Your points won’t matter once you do this, so being as strong as possible will only heighten your chances of success. This includes things like lethal and tactical grenades, along with ammo mods like freezing and Brain Rot.
As long as you employ all of this, you will have a tough but hopefully successful time exfiling in Black Ops Cold War’s Zombies. I promise if you keep at it and practice your zombie killing skills, you’ll be able to exfil successfully. Not to mention if you exfil three times, you unlock the operator Helen Park to use in Multiplayer and Zombies.
