Quick Revive, sometimes known as Revive Soda or Revive, is a Perk-a-Cola in Call of Duty: World at War, Call of Duty: Black Ops, Call of Duty: Black Ops II, Call of Duty: Black Ops III, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III featured in the Zombies mode. It was first introduced in the map Verrückt. It makes the player revive teammates twice as fast or allows the player to revive themselves (only applies when playing solo, except on World at War).

Quick Revive costs 1500 points in co-op and 500 points in solo games from Call of Duty: Black Ops onward. Due to the lack of teammates in solo, this perk in Call of Duty: World at War is useless, and players are advised to never purchase it. The color for this perk is light blue, and the icon is a grave with a man rising from it.

In the entire Black Ops series, this perk was significantly more useful than the World at War version while playing solo. It can be bought for 500 points and with the power switched off. The perk is also found in the starting location on every map, with the exception of Nacht der Untoten, Shi No Numa (World at War & Black Ops version), Der Riese, Dead Ops Arcade, Moon, Green Run (Bus Depot (Survival), and Diner), Die Rise, Resolution 1295 (Borough, Turned), The Giant, Dead Ops Arcade 2: Cyber's Avengening, and Zetsubou No Shima, in all three Black Ops games, which makes finding it much easier. When the player is downed, they will be equipped with either the Mustang & Sally, Boomhilda, Meat Wagon or Death & Taxes, unless they have an alternative weapon that is capable of being used when downed. While downed, the player is able to shoot the zombies while being revived shortly after going down. The player will lose all their perks unless they have the Tombstone Persistent Upgrade which will only take away one perk. On the iOS version the player will still have their perks when downed and will only be equipped with a Mustang (due to the lack of dual-wield weapons on the iOS version). The zombies will move away from the player while they are being revived. After each use, the perk must be bought again and can only be purchased three times until it disappears for the rest of the game, making the Random Perk Bottle, as well Der Wunderfizz, the only ways to obtain it afterwards. It is useful to note that while being revived while down, the player cannot earn points, so players shouldn't kill any zombies when downed if in need of points.

On Moon, if the player hacks the perk and buys it again it will count as buying it a second or third time.

In Call of Duty: Black Ops II (Tranzit, Die Rise, and Buried) in a public match, this can be obtained as a Persistent Upgrade for free by reviving players several times without failure. The player will be notified that they have it when the "Reviving" font color is purple-blue and when they get a green flash (signal of obtaining a Persistant Upgrade).

In Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, Quick Revive's functionality was completely changed. With the introduction of Self Revives, Quick Revive no longer automatically revives the player when they are downed in Solo. Instead, by default, it allows you to revive teammates quicker in co-op, and it shortens the delay between taking damage and regenerating health. When placed in the modifier slot, it is upgraded so that when reviving a teammate, both players are instantly healed to maximum health, and both players get a speed boost. When in the modifier slot, the player will also get a speed boost any time they regenerate health.

Like all Perk-a-Colas in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, Quick Revive can be upgraded. With no upgrades, Quick Revive reduces the time it takes for the player regenerate their health by 50% while also reducing the time it takes to revive an ally by 50%. At Tier 1 the perk also enables the player crawl 100% faster when downed, while at Tier 2 the perk reduces the delay before health regeneration starts by 50%. At Tier 3 the perk will fully regenerate the player's health upon reviving an ally. At Tier 4 reviving another player will give both players a temporary movement speed boost, and at Tier 5 the perk allows the player to kill an enemy while downed to revive themselves, causing them to lose the Quick Revive perk.

The Quick Revive machine is small, with a dark turquoise and white paint job. On the front of the machine is a quote that says "Quick Revive!. Under it, there is a compartment where Quick revive bottles can be taken from. Beside that is a bloody handprint. Under that, there is a coin machine with a blood stain on it and surrounding this are white bubbles with quotes such as "sold here" and "ice cold". On the top of the machine is a circle with the Quick Revive shield on it.

The machine is redesigned slightly in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, with the machine having a cursive font at the top as well as having more of a polish, but the overall feel of the machine being the same, albeit with the exception of the machine now dispensing cans instead of bottles.

  • According to the characters, this perk tastes like fish. Every character seems to dislike the taste, apart from Takeo who remarks its nice taste, a stereotype associating the Japanese with sushi, which often contains raw fish. Tank Dempsey particularly dislikes this perk, as he hates fish.
    • Nikolai Belinski compares the taste to trench water within Origins.
    • Tank Dempsey sometimes compares the taste of Quick Revive with cat urine.
  • Unlike most other sources of revival, the message says, "Reviving [name of player]".
  • In GKNOVA6 and the Black Ops zombies screen, one of the screens shows Quick Revive where Speed Cola should be on "Five".
  • In solo, after Quick Revive has disappeared, running into the spot where it previously was will still result in the sound of Perk-a-Cola bottles shaking around.
  • In solo, this perk is known as a "Revive". As when going up to a machine, the player will be prompted to buy a Revive. The message also appears in multiplayer zombies in Black Ops II.
  • The Quick Revive bottle holds 240 ml (milliliters). This is clearly seen on the poster in Verrückt.
  • There are bottles of Quick Revive, Double Tap Root Beer, Speed Cola and Juggernog in Kino der Toten behind the glass right next to the Quick Revive machine.
  • When the player gets down and has Quick Revive, the sun is fully colored despite everything else being in black and white.
  • The pistols that are equipped when a player is downed on Solo with Quick Revive do not have Pack-a-Punched camo on them.
  • Quick Revive, along with Juggernog, Speed Cola, and Double Tap Root Beer, all have a cut perk machine model from Shi No Numa. They all appear to have moss on the machine, indicating that the perk machines would have been dirty to fit the art style of the map.
  • According to Russman, it makes his knees better.
  • In the poster in Verrückt, the Quick Revive logo is different, though this was fixed in the Call of Duty: Black Ops remake of the map.
  • On Die Rise, after purchasing all three bottles in solo, the elevator doors close.
  • Quick Revive, along with Juggernog, 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 background is slightly darker now.
  • Quick Revive is the only one of the original four Perk-a-Colas to return in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4.
    • In Black Ops 4, Quick Revive has an additional feature wherein it allows the player to regenerate health 25% faster. This is to accommodate the new health system for the game.
    • Buying a Quick Revive in Solo on Black Ops 4 does not give the player any self-revives like in previous games, as the player is provided with two self-revives by default at the start of every Solo game.
  • The backing track used for the Quick Revive jingle comes from a track entitled "It's A Perfect Day".[1]
  • On the bottom of Quick Revive, one can see the texture for the machine itself in Black Ops II, which can be proven by moving the model of Quick Revive above the player via mods.
  • When purchased in the maps Voyage of Despair, IX, Dead of the Night, and Ancient Evil, the statue the player receives when inhaling the Quick Revive vapor features the Egyptian symbol of the Ankh - a symbol commonly used in ancient Egyptian civilization used to represent the word "life" (a nod to the Perk's function, which could be said to bring new life to players).

  • According to the ingredients list on the Quick Revive can, Quick Revive contains the following: Trench water (a product of Russia), chicken broth concentrate, adrenaline, ammonium salts, anchovie paste, and feline urea.[2]
  • For the purposes of perk loss when downed, Quick Revive swaps places with the first perk obtained (i.e. the left-most slot). This happens when another perk is obtained after Quick Revive or when warping between zones in Outbreak.
