Elixirs are a feature introduced in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Zombies, replacing the GobbleGums from Call of Duty: Black Ops III. They are equipped in the menu using Create-A-Class, with up to 4 Elixirs being equipped to a class. Elixirs can be utilised within a match by pressing the corresponding button associated with the Elixir, which will cause the character to pull out the bottle and drink the concoction, activating the effects while placing the drunk Elixir on cooldown; also consuming a bottle if the Elixir used is not a Classic or Whimsical.


Elixirs are primarily divided into two primary styles, ones earnt via levelling and the ones brought by Nebulium Plasma. Within these as well, Elixirs are broken down into 6 rarities in total.


  • Classic:  - Earnt via levelling, infinite uses.
  • Whimsical: - Comical Elixirs that provide no advantage, infinite uses.


  • Common: - The most common Elixir type.
  • Rare: - The second most common Elixir type.
  • Legendary: - The second rarest Elixir type.
  • Epic: - The rarest Elixir type.
