How to Get Perma Jugg in Black Ops 2 Zombies

Written by Will on February 14, 2013 and posted in Guides and Walkthroughs.

Along with the recent Zombies DLC pack, Revolution, Trearch have unlocked 2 new permanent perks, added Die Rise and the new Turned mode. The new perma perks are Perma Jugg and Red Instakill.

How to Unlock Perma Jugg

Unlocking Perma Jugg is as easy as getting downed twice. The only problem with getting it is that you need to revive yourself with a Quick Revive so you have to be doing it solo. That being said sometimes you can get it while your playing online if everyone quits and you’re the host. I have yet to confirm if you can do it during multiplayer using the brand new Who’s Who perk machine that allows you to become a ghost and revive yourself but it seems to me that it’s likely you could do it that way too.

Easiest confirmed way of getting it is as follows.

  1. Get a solo match on Tranzit.
  2. Buy the Quick Revive (which is on right away and only costs 500 in solo mode).
  3. Get downed by the last Zombie in round 1.
  4. Revive yourself with the Quick Revive.
  5. Get downed again.

When you get downed the second time you’ll see a green flash and then you’ll be able to take 4 hits at the beginning of every game, without buying Juggernog.

Alternate Method to Unlock Juggernog Perma Perk

You simply have to fall a great distance. This looks like it may only work on Die Rise and you might have to try it a few times before it does. Simply find a spot at the top of the tower and jump off it right out the building. You’ll fall to your death but the green mist will appear indicating you’ve unlocked the perk. Check this video to see what I mean.

Juggernog Pro

Juggernog Pro is when you unlock Perma Jugg and buy a Juggernog from the perk machine. When you do that you can take 6 hits before going down. It’s a crazy advantage to have and when you couple that with some of the other perma perks 4 that you can buy (6 with the Tombstone glitch) and 3 Pack a Punched weapons (yes 3 of them if you use the new Mule Kick perk) you can easily make it to much higher waves than normal. When I have the perks it’s not unusual for me to casually reach wave 20 or higher before I even get my first down.
