These perk-a-colas are highly recommended if you intend to reach later rounds. Earn points and spend them on perk-a-colas to buff up your teammates. Some machines require a Turbine to be turned on. The different perks you will find are:
Quick Revive – Bus Station
When playing Solo, quick revive allows you to revive yourself. You can repeat it thrice before the machine vanishes. When playing with teammates, quick-review triples your revive speed when helping downed teammates.
Speed Cola – Diner
Speed Cola doubles your reload speed and is one of must-have perks for the Diner.
Double Tap Root Beer – Farm – Barn – Secondary Story
It will dramatically increase the rate of fire of the weapons you use, but at the same time, it will burning a lot of ammo.
Tombstone – Power House
It’s a savior. Must have for those who spend more time downed in Tranzit. When you go down, you will have to retrieve your Tombstone upon respawn at the next round. It’s always on the timer and starts counting down the moment you respawn. If it times out, you will less of your previous loadout.
Jugger Nog- Town- Southwest building
You get extra health. It allows you to take extra hits from the zombies before you go down. It might not be useful in the early rounds, but in the later rounds, you will need every bit of health you can get and this is where Jugger-Nog comes in.
When you are playing in a team, support your Jugger-Nog to increase your team survival chances. Consider Jugger-Nog a pre-requisite if you intend to venture into the dark SMOKE.
You can kill a zombie in one shot with any weapon. It’s a very useful power-up that can save you and your team in the later rounds. If you find it at the end of the round and you don’t need it, let it sit till the round resets.
Pick it up to kill every zombie in the game. There is a slight delay though so make sure you don’t drop dead before Nuke becomes effective.
Picking up Max-Ammo gives every team-mate maximum ammo for all of their weapons. This is critical, especially for the special weapon as it’s only way to replenish the ammo in it.
Pick up this power up to repair all the broken barricades across the map. This can buy you time depending on your location.
It doubles your score for every action you perform. You can get enough points to visit Mystery Box, Perk-a-Cola and Pack-a-Punch machines more often.
How To Store Weapons / Storage Boxes
In the Farm map, you can store weapons in the Fridge found in the central house. This can be quite handy if you die and do not have the Tombstone Perk. However, at higher levels, it is relatively difficult to get access to the fridge easily during dire situations.
The Galvanized Knuckles can be found on the roof of the Diner, and can only be accessed by using the roof hatch of the bus. They cost 6,000, and can one-shot all zombies below level 14 and kill all zombies in two hits below level 24.
Smoke and Evil That Lies Within!
In Tranzit, maps are surrounded by smoke / fog and entering that before you decide to enter the area, make sure you have one finger on your melee button. Every time you will walk into that smoke; an evil creature will attack on your face, leaving you blinded.
You can only melee it so make sure you do if you want to survive. Second reason not to venture into the smoke is that it blinds you, and you might end up walking straight into the horde of zombies with little to no escape route available.
If you intend to enter that area, make sure you go in groups / with your friends and stay in close proximity. It will increase your chances to survive the zombie onslaught. Before entering with the team, make sure you have purchased multiple Perk-a-Colas and have doubled up on Mystery-Box weaponry.
Mystery Box – Where To Find It
There won’t be survivors without Mystery Box. In Black Ops 2, mystery box brings some near future weapons and old wonder weapons to the mix. The mechanics are similar.
You find the mystery box and use it to get the upgraded weapon and after using it a number of times, you will meet a teddy bear that will teleport the mystery box to an unknown location.
Your will find it in the Diner area; it’s your first step after Bus Depot. When it isn’t there, it will be at one of the locations marked with a stack of ammo boxes across all five maps. You should mark these sites since they are potential locations for Mystery Box.
You can reload mystery box only via Max Ammo Power-Up drop. You will either get this drop by killing zombies or from Pack-a-Punch machine the first time you put the weapon in.
You begin your journey from inside the terminal at the Bus Depot area. Inside the room, there are a bunch of zombies who seem dulled-out and will have no interest in you. However, if you attack anyone, all of them will charge at you. You need to take care of each one in order to open the door out of the Depot.
Important thing to note here is that you can knife down the zombies quickly. In the first round, a single swipe will take care of each one. This is a good way to conserve your ammo and to rack up some points.
Keep a watchful eye on the barricades because once the fight begins, some of the zombies will begin attacking the barricades to bring them down. You can also repair damaged barricades to earn some easy cash.
Once a weapon has been fashioned, any player in the game can pick it up for use. However, each survivor can only equip one finished item and one unfinished part. Furthermore, if you respawn at the start of a new round, any unfinished part you were carrying is dropped where you went down.
Before departure, the bus will flare its horn a couple of times. Be sure to hurry because you definitely don’t want to miss the bus. In the scenario that you do miss the bus, you will need to take shelter and wait for the bus to return.
The bus has all windows barricaded. During your ride, zombies will try to board the bus; destroying the barricades in the process. You must repair those barricades and earn some points in the process. Keep a sharp eye on the barricades to your left and right.
The Bus will drop you off at your first stop, the Diner. For 750 points, you can gain access to the place which comes with a Perk-a-Cola and a Wall-Buy weapon.
Visit The Garage
The Diner is linked with a Garage which can be accessed with another 750 points. The Garage is the first location of the Mystery Box and can be opened by spending 950 points.
On spending, the box will award the player with a random weapon every time. Every weapon is high tier and increases your chances of survival by a great deal.
After a number of uses, the Mystery Box will reward you with a teddy bear and then teleport to a different area in the map. Once the box has vanished you will be refunded your 950 points.
Green Run Farm
The countryside farmhouse is a host to a large horde of zombies. The area is divided between two regions: The Barn and the Farmhouse itself.
A couple of great finds here in the two-story barn. Firstly, you’ll find another Perk-a-Cola here and secondly there is a zombie-clearing wall-weapon hidden behind a stack of crates.
There are only a couple of exits inside the Barn so watch yourself and don’t let yourself be cut off.
Similar to the Barn, the Farmhouse is also two stories tall. However, in scale, it’s much smaller with narrow rooms and passageways.
The Farmhouse is the second location of the Mystery Box, which you can find on the second floor. Besides that you can also drop down from the balcony (Stack of boxes) and reach the outside grounds. A pretty nifty escape route in the event your exit is cut off by a swarm of the undead.
This is fourth stop on the bus’ circuit.
The access door is hidden well from plain sight, and you’ll have to run around a bit to find it. Spending 750 points will grant you access to the secret door and with it into the underground facility.
Head for the Reactor room and flip the switch to open the power-shutters blocking the stairs. This will take some considerable time as the Reactor needs to power-up. Once the power-up sequence is complete you can escape the facility.
You must head underground for the lower Core if want to access the upper damaged building.
Inside the lower Core stay alert for zombie popping up from below. After clearing the destroyed building you must follow the same path across the lower Core to get back.
Green Run Town
The fifth and final bus stop is the largest area in Tranzit and is the ruins of a small downtown main street. You’ll find two Perk-a-Colas here, and you better equip everything since this town is packed with the undead.
The area has loads of room to explore and kite zombies, but you’ll find no wall-buy weapons here.
The streets allow you to access a bar with a second floor and the second-floor apartments. The small floors have multiple entry points, and you can be surrounded by zombies in a second if you’re not careful.
The Mystery Box will also make an appearance here. One possible location is upstairs in the bar, and the other is in a small alley off the main street.
The main highlight of the bank is off course its main vault, which contains two vault doors.
The first vault door contains a safe-deposit box which can be used by players to deposit or withdraw points. The second vault door grants access to the innermost vault, which contains more deposit boxes.
