Black Ops Cold War: Outbreak Pack-A-Punch Unlock Guide

Outbreak makes it easy to PaP your weapons.

The Pack-A-Punch has been a staple in the Call of Duty franchise and unlocking it requires players to go through a set of tedious tasks. However, all that has changed with the release of the new map Outbreak in Cold War Zombies.

In this guide, we’ll cover all of the changes brought to the PaP machine and where you can find it on Outbreak.

How to Pack-a-Punch in Cold War Outbreak

To unlock the Pack-a-Punch machine, players were previously required to switch on the power or build the PaP from scratch. But with the release of the newest DLC, PaP is free from all those tasks and can be found by interacting with an anomaly or by finding the machines in different areas of the map.

Since the map is divided into three parts, there will be three PaP machines where players can spend 5000x Essence to upgrade their guns. These Pack-A-Punch machines are placed in buildings and huts that may be a bit confusing to find. To help you counter that, we’ve mentioned them down below.


After spawning in Golva, players can look at their map to spot a white icon displaying the PaP marker on the map. The Pack-A-Punch machine is located in the tight hallways of the Spanish resort of Outbreak.

To get there, players must use the staircase in the building to spot the PaP machine next to the statue in the corner of the second floor.


If there are arrows connected to the marker of the PaP icon, it means that the PaP machine is above you.


The second location where the Pack-A-Punch machine can be found is in the lodge of the wooden structured building. Simply enter the building to find the PaP machine in the entrance hallway.


In the area of Ruka on Outbreak, players can easily find the Pack-A-Punch machine on the left section of the map. Make your way towards the barns to spot the PaP machine sitting next to the stacks of hay.

Activate the Anamoly (Alternate Method)

Each area of the map has certain tasks and objectives to complete to trigger an anomaly. The anomaly works by shifting all of the upgraded features of the map into one location for a certain period. The upgrade features include all of the perks including the Wunderfizz, workbenches, and a Pack-A-Punch machine.
