Stamin-up-min-up (x3) When you need some extra runnin', when you need some extra time, when you want to keep on gunnin', when you like a twist of lime. When you need to keep on moving, when you need to get away. When you need to keep on groovin', when you need that vitamin K. Babe, you know you want me! Let's run the extra mile! I'll open your eyes and I'll make you see! I'll make it worth your while! (Stamin-Up-min-up!) Sounds like it's Staaaaamin-Up time! Oh yeah, drink it baby. Drink it.

Stamin-Up is a Perk-a-Cola featured in the Zombies game mode. It was introduced along with PhD Flopper on the map Ascension. It returns in Call of the Dead, Shangri-La, Moon, Green Run, Buried, Origins, Shadows of Evil, The Giant, Der Eisendrache, Zetsubou No Shima, Gorod Krovi, Revelations, Voyage of Despair, IX, Blood of the Dead, Classified, Dead of the Night, Ancient Evil, Alpha Omega, Tag Der Toten, Die Maschine, and Firebase Z, and is also available via Der Wunderfizz in the remastered versions of Nacht der Untoten, Verrückt, Shi No Numa, and Kino der Toten. It also appears in Der Wunderfizz in Outbreak.

It has two effects, one which is the standard version of the perk Marathon from multiplayer, which gives the player twice the amount of sprint endurance. The other effect is identical to the perk Lightweight from multiplayer, giving a 7% speed increase. The color for this perk is yellow/cheddar, and the icon is a man running at a high speed.

The perk costs 2000 points. It is most useful when the player will be running around the map as part of their strategy, or if they are in danger and being chased by a massive horde of zombies or have to rush to revive a teammate in time. In Ascension, it is useful to have when attempting to defend more than one Perk-a-Cola machine during a Space Monkey round. In Call of the Dead, it can be beneficial in outpacing George A. Romero. It is a useful perk to have in TranZit when running through the fog, as Denizens have a harder time trying to catch the player, and it is useful when being knocked off the Bus, as one has a better chance of catching up to it.

In Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, the perk increases the player's run and sprint speed when not upgraded. When upgraded to Tier 1 the perk increases the player's backpedal speed, while at Tier 2 it gives the player immunity to fall damage. At Tier 3 the perk allows the player to walk faster when aiming down sights with their gun. At Tier 4 the player can use equipment while sprinting, and at Tier 5 the perk removes the player's sprint speed falloff.

Appearance

The Stamin-Up machine has a wooden finish instead of a paint job. On the front of the machine, there is a white and orange striped design with the Stamin-Up shield on it. Under that, there is a yellow plaque with "Stamin-Up" written in orange. Under that, there is a display of different coloured bottles, from left to right, purple, red, yellow, orange and green.

In Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, like all returning Perk-a-Colas, Stamin-Up's machine takes on a new but similar appearance. Having the same general appearance as it does in the other games, it instead has an aesthetic change coinciding with 1970's disco culture, featuring an icon of a African-American woman on the top left and right sides of the machine. As with all Black Ops Cold War machines, Stamin-Up also now dispenses cans rather than glass bottles.
