I love when games give me the opportunity to pet dogs and, surprisingly, you can pet the Plaguehounds Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold WarZombies mode. But unless you are using a specific gun effect, you would never know you had the chance to pet them.
The machine’s Plaguehounds are special round enemies that attack in waves that are almost exactly the same as the Hellhounds found in previous iterations of Zombies. The zombified dogs aren’t known for their good temperament, but if you can make one an ally for a short period of time, Cold War
Petting a Plague Dog on The Machine takes a few steps, but they’re all simple goals that the game will get you through at the start. You need to turn on the electricity and forge the Pack-A-Punch machine which is the legendary Zombies device that you can use to upgrade the damage done to your weapons. The Pack-A-Punch can also be used to assign an alternative type of ammunition to your weapon. There are four ammo effects to choose from, but you’ll need to select Brain Rot if you want to treat yourself to some petting.
With Brain Rot on your weapon, bullets have the ability to turn a zombie or dog into an ally for a short time. Just use the Brain Rotted weapon during a round of Plaguehounds, and you should have at least one dog to get docile. Then you have the opportunity to interact with the Plaguehound (Square on PlayStation). The effect only lasts for around 10 to 15 seconds, so you need to act quickly to pet the good dog. You will also receive 50 bonus points for petting. However, do not attempt to pet Plaguehounds without the use of brain rot as this will likely result in your death.
It’s unclear if petting is a feature that has been zombies since then Cold War‘s start, or one with last week’s added Content update of the first season, but I love the chance to make a temporary friend to a zombie dog.
