Juggernog (stylized as Jugger-Nog on the machine) is a Perk-a-Cola featured in Call of Duty: World at War, Call of Duty: Black Ops, Call of Duty: Black Ops II, Call of Duty: Black Ops III, and Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War in the Zombies game mode. It was first introduced in the map Verrückt. It increases the player's health from 100 to 250, allowing them to withstand more hits before going down, making it an invaluable perk. It is generally considered one of the most important perks, whether one is playing solo or co-op, so players should prioritise purchasing it as soon as possible.

Without Juggernog, two hits from a regular zombie will down the player, but with Juggernog this increases to five hits. In Black Ops III, the health without Juggernog was increased to three hits, however, with Juggernog, the player also goes down in five/four hits. As Jumping Jacks and Hellhounds deal slightly less damage, seven hits from the former and six hits from the latter will down a player with Juggernog. The player can also be struck by electricity four times before downing. The time in the lava is increased up to ten seconds before downing and players can hold their breath longer underwater. It takes three hits to be downed by Brutus, the Panzer Soldat, the Margwa and the Thrasher with Juggernog. As for Cerberus, it takes 30 hits to be downed.

This perk costs 2500 points to buy. Players should be careful while purchasing it with zombies after them as its effects are not added until the Juggernog icon is seen on the screen, which means they can go down in two hits while drinking the perk, causing them to essentially waste the required 2500 points. Juggernog appears in every Zombies map to date with the exceptions of Nacht der Untoten, Dead Ops Arcade, Bus Depot, the Grief mode on Cell Block, and every map in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4.

Juggernog allows players to comfortably spend more time in vulnerable situations such as reloading and drinking other Perk-a-Colas (as the player cannot shoot or sprint during these situations), and gives much more room for mistakes, allowing the player to live longer. The color of this perk is red, and the icon is a white cross with a red bullet crossing through it, similar to the Juggernaut perk.

Within Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, Juggernog goes by Jugger-nog and increases hitpoints by 50 points at the base Aetherium Upgrade with the Tier One upgrade reducing the duration of status effects, such as the toxin damage caused by Plaguehounds, by 50%. Tier 2 increases the amount of Armor that Armor Plates replenish by 25% and Tier 3 increases health by 100 points. At Tier 4 the player's armor durability is increased by 25%, and at Tier 5 the player is not downed on a lethal hit but instead has their armor depleted and health reduced to 1.

Appearance

The Juggernog machine is thin, with a red and white paint job. On the front, the quotes "Drink Juggernog" and "10¢" can be seen along with "That's a good nog!" and "Made with real eggs!". On the right side, the quote "Take a tug on that sweet, sweet jugg." can be seen along with a faded bloody handprint below it. And on the left, "ice cold" is seen. On the top, a circular sign with the Juggernog icon is on it.

The design of the machine was updated for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. While the general style of the machine is similar, it is bulkier with two extra layers on either side of the machine and a larger rib separating the red and white parts of the machine. The controls are now on the front of the machine rather than being bulged forwards slightly, and the top of the machine is now black with the logo in a black-ringed stand. The machine also now dispenses cans instead of bottles, like with the rest of the updated Perk-a-Cola machines.

  • There are two wheels on the back of the machine.
  • In Kino der Toten, next to the Quick Revive machine, empty bottles of Juggernog, Quick Revive and Speed Cola can be seen inside the counter.
  • A Persistent Upgrade with the same effects as Juggernog can be obtained in TranZit, Die Rise and Buried. Stacking this with the perk allows the player to survive up to six hits from zombies.

  • In Verrückt, an alternate Juggernog jingle can be found in the audio files.[1]
    • The backing track of this unused jingle comes from a stock track called "Wending My Way".[2]
  • In Call of Duty: Black Ops II the labels on the necks of the Juggernog bottles are corrected to say Juggernog soda instead of Juggernaut soda.
    • Interestingly enough, the label on the bottles are spelled Jugger-Nog Soda, despite the machine itself being spelled Juggernog, unhyphenated.
  • Juggernog, along with Quick Revive, Speed Cola, Double Tap Root Beer, Stamin-Up, and Mule Kick, has had its icon that appears in the HUD slightly altered between the release of Die Rise and Mob of the Dead for Call of Duty: Black Ops II. The white part of it appears slightly more yellow now.

  • In Revelations, wearing the Apothicon Mask while under the effects of Juggernog can increase the player's health to a higher amount than usual. It increases the player's health from 250% to 500%, meaning the player can take 10 hits before being downed.
  • The backing track used for the Juggernog jingle comes from a stock track entitled "Boney". [3]
