Cranked is a game mode for the Zombies mode of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, added as part of the Season One Reloaded update.


Cranked features a much more intense gameplay flow due to the inclusion of the Cranked Timer. Zombies are more likely to be in a running state earlier on. Zombies will spawn at a much faster rate. Not all Zombies on the map are required to be killed for the round to tick over. The inclusion of the new mode exclusive Power-Up called "Timers Frozen" which will freeze the Cranked Timer for 10 seconds. Standard Zombies can now drop ammo packs. Elite units can drop Scorestreaks alongside their standard drops.

Map Exclusive Changes

  • Power is instantly turned on when, rather than requiring the need of reactivation of the Particle Accelerator.
  • Pack-a-Punch Machine is automatically placed in map, negating the need of Dark Aether travel.
