Is PhD Slider good in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War?

In the history of Call of Duty Zombies, Perk-a-Cola is no more in demand than a PhD Flopper. This advantage debuted in Call of Duty: Black Ops and at the time was the strongest entity combined with Ray Gun. This negated any damage you do yourself, such as Ray Gun damage caused by hitting enemies too close to you. In addition, you can use the mechanics of a dive blast in the game and eliminate all nearby zombies.

When Call of Duty abandoned diving and used slide instead, the advantage was renamed PhD Slider. He made his debut in Black Ops IV and had several notable changes, including recharging the perk by moving it to explode enemies. With the release of the final zombie map in Black Ops Cold War, Forsaken, PhD Slider has returned. Is it worth buying?

PhD Slider is pretty good in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Zombies. The charging feature has been removed, instead focusing on where you hit the zombies in your shot to decide what damage and how far they are thrown. Of course, like any other perk in Black Ops Cold War, the perk can be upgraded to make it much better.

The following are its upgrades:

  • Level I – resistance to environmental damage during sliding
  • Level II- another slide
  • Level III – resistance to explosive damage you cause
  • Level IV- higher slip speed
  • Level V-drop from a distance will cause an explosion. Longer drops cause larger and more harmful explosions

While the first upgrade is so specialized that it’s basically useless, all other upgrades are welcome additions. Of course, it is desirable to slide further and faster to make the main use of perk more deadly.

Immunity to explosive damage does that again, so if you have a Ray Gun, you’re basically invincible if you have ammunition. You can aim straight at the ground and kill all the zombies that surround you. Ray Gun is already very strong in Black Ops Cold War; This elevates it even more as one of the best weapons you can get.

An update that causes an explosion to fall from a height will most likely depend on the map. For example, Firebase Z has only one or two places where you could even cause an explosion, and they are not in great places. Forsaken, on the other hand, has many areas from which you can jump and throw out enemies. The main emphasis here, no matter what, will still be gliding and buffing the Ray Gun.

Of course, we don’t recommend buying a PhD Slider before Juggernog or Quick Revive, but soon after that we might see it, especially if you have a Ray Gun or are receiving a sliding attack. We consider this to be much better than any other post-launch benefits that have been added to the game.
