The Fate of Firepower is one of four permanent fates granted to the player available in Dead Ops Arcade. It grants the player a Death Machine and replaces the M60 for the remainder of the game. The Death Machine will be replaced by other weapons if their Power-Ups are dropped, and will return to the Death Machine as opposed to the M60. Picking up a Death Machine Power-Up wastes it as nothing happens; however, it can be useful if the player has picked up an undesired weapons and wants the death machine back quickly.
The death machine is extremely effective against especially the high health Engineer Zombies during later waves. Thus, the player can use the fate of firepower to their advantage.
The Fate of Firepower is always placed in the spot of the Room of Fate where the second arrow appears.
- When picked up, a Death Machine Power-Up will land on the receiver, similair to how other Power-Ups do in normal rounds.
- If the player looks closely enough, the death machine given from The Fate of Firepower has a red glow.
