How to unlock Black ops 2 Zombies Perma Perks
In Black Ops 2 Zombies mode on Tranzit there are special perks that you can get that last longer than just 1 game. These Perks are known as Perma Perks. There are 3 of them confirmed in Green Run Tranzit. I have attained these 3 myself so I know they are correct. There’s a video and a little guide at the bottom of the article detailing how to get the Black ops 2 Zombies Perma Perks.
Note: Both me and a friend have had ours run out after some time so they aren’t completely permanent but they last a very long time, it was days for me and my friends and weeks for others. There is also reports of people loosing them after particularly bad games.
List of the Permanent Perks
Update: There are another 2 confirmed perma perks: Red Instakill and Perma Jugg. Red Instakill, or Instakill Touch, gives a headshot every time you touch a Zombie. You know you have it when you see a small red skull logo above the white one at the beginning of an Instakill. Perma Jugg gives you Juggernog without buying it. You know you have it when you can take 4 hits before you buy Juggernog.
The 3 originally found perma perks info is found below and there is a new section at the end of the article about the new ones.
There are a total of
three five confirmed Black ops 2 Zombies perma perks. 2 3 of them are unique (unable to buy from the perk-a-cola machines).
- Quick Revive – Revive other player in just 2 seconds.
- Deadshot Daiquiri – Increases damage multiplier when aiming for the head.
- Steel Barriers – Takes Zombies longer to destroy barricades.
- Red Instakill – During Instakill allows you to kill zombies by simply running into them.
- Perma Jugg – Gives the same effects as buying a Juggernog.
There are some suggestions that there are some other perks yet to be discovered such as
Juggernog, Speed Cola and Tombstone.
How to unlock the Black Ops 2 Perma Perks
You can unlock
two four of the perma-perks without the help of another player but for Quick Revive you’ll need someone else to die many times lol.
You will know you’ve unlocked the perks when you see a little green mist effect appear as you complete the required challenge.
Quick Revive Permanent Perk:
How to get Quick Revive: By reviving a teammate between 12 & 20 times in a game. It usually ends up being 16 times when we’ve tried it.
Best Way to get Quick Revive: Have your teammates get knock down by zombies or lava in the early waves until you see the green mist blob.
What Quick Revive does: Gives you a 2 second revive just like you would have had if you had bought a Quick Revive at the start.
Quick Revive Pro: After you get the quick revive perma-perk or as long as you have it in-game, buy quick revive from the machine and you’ll now be able to revive teammates in one second.
Deadshot Daiquiri Permanent Perk
How to get Deadshot Daiquiri: Kill two zombies with a double head shot (heads will explode) with one bullet.
Best Way to get Deadshot Daiquiri: Let the zombies group together in a train while they are chasing you and once they are all grouped, turn around and aim for the heads while they are chasing you in a single line. Hopefully you’ll kill two and get this perma perk.
What Deadshot Daiquiri does: Gives you a higher damage multiplier when aiming for the heads. Kills zombies like you were aiming for the head even when your shooting at the body without buying the perk.
Steel Barriers Permanent Perk
How to unlock Steel Barriers: By rebuilding the wooden barriers 50 times but it often takes a lot more than that.
Best Way to get Steal Barriers: Do this in an early round and keep rebuilding barricades before zombies get in using the in-out rebuild trick. Even do it on the bus is a good idea.
What it does: Barriers are made of steel when you rebuild them and give you an extra few seconds before zombies can tear the barriers from the windows.
Red Instakill and Perma Jugg
These two perma perks were discovered long after this post was originally written. I’ve gone though and updated the relevant parts of the post but I’ve also written guides specifically for each of the two new found perks. You can find the Instakill Guide here and the Permanent Jugg Guide here.
If you’ve found any more of the perks or have a method you use to unlock these please share it in the comments section.
This guide has been part of my complete Black Ops 2 Tranzit Guide. I’ve written a few more parts of the guide too, if you need to know how to turn on the power in Green Run Tranzit or unlock the pack a punch machine in Black Ops 2 Zombies mode then check those guides too.
