"Activate to make zombies rapidly appear and move faster through Round 55."
— Notification

The Rampage Inducer is a feature added to Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Zombies as part of the Season Five Reloaded update on September 9th, 2021.


Appearing exclusively in all round-based maps, the Rampage Inducer is a special Aetherium essence canister containing fragments of a Fury Crystal. Upon interacting with it, all enemies will gain increased movement speed and spawn rates up until Round 55, allowing for faster round transitions to help progress the game faster at the cost of an increased challenge to survivability. At the end of Round 55, the Rampage Inducer will automatically disable itself by exploding, prohibiting the player from using it further.

At any time while the Rampage Inducer is activated, the player can toggle it off, reverting the game back to its original progression. Additionally, the player can also reactivate the Rampage Inducer at any point after its been toggled off should they choose to. In a co-op game, all players must vote to activate and deactivate the Rampage Inducer. Furthermore, toggling the Rampage Inducer on and off in a co-op game can only be done once per round, while in solo it can be done as many times as the player wants to within a round with a minor delay between uses.
