How to Get Jugger-Nog Perk

Get the Jugger-Nog Easter Egg in MW3 Zombies by heading to the western section of the map by Al-Abboud Condos. Make sure to bring a Molotov Cocktail and yeet it onto the bonfire near the toy bunny. This will summon the Reward Portal containing a free Jugger-Nog Can.

Map Location:

Perk machines

For an easy method, Jugger-Nog can be bought from the Perk Machines for 2,000 Essence. Look out for shield-like icons on the tac map to locate these vending machines, but be aware that their locations and available stock change from game to game. In other words, you might have to visit a few Perk Machines to get the one you're after.

Contracts

An exciting way to get Jugger-Nog is by completing contracts. The Reward Rift might present you with a Jugger-Nog Can or a Jugger-Nog Schematic. Remember though, the rewards are mixed, making each initiation a surprise.

Crafting

If you found the Crafting Schematics, go to your loadout menu, open your backpack, select "Add Item," and then go to Schematic Crafting to find the Jugger-Nog under Perk-a-Colas. Crafting won’t cost you anything, but it does come with a cooldown.

Loot caches

Players fond of exploring might find Jugger-Nog in the Loot Caches randomly. Although this is rare, it could save you the 2,000 Essence you'd spend buying it from the Perk Machine.

Want to learn how the Deadshot Daquiri Perk works and how to get it? We've got you covered. Keep reading to find out everything you need to know about this Perk-a-Cola in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Zombies.

Deadshot Daiquiri

Deadshot Daiquiri Effects

Deadshot Daiquiri enhances aiming precision in MW3 Zombies by automatically targeting critical points when aiming at enemies, ensuring each shot lands with devastating accuracy.

How to Get Deadshot Daiquiri Perk

Let's kick things off with a trick - toss a grenade, for example a Semtex, into the top window of the Abtal Academy church on the Zombies map. Surprise! You just earned yourself a free Deadshot Daiquiri Can. Don't forget to first stock up on grenades at the nearby ammo cache, though.

Map Location:

Perk Machines

The classic route – just buy it! The Perk Machine is your go-to spot, demanding 2,000 Essence. But here's the twist - the Perk Machines' locations dance to their own tune, randomly chosen in each match. And to make it worse, not all Perk-a-Colas are available in every machine. You might have to visit a few before finding the Perk-a-Cola that you want.

Contracts

Now, let's talk business. Completing contracts opens the door to Deadshot Daiquiri Can or Schematic rewards from the mystical Reward Rift. Keep in mind, the loot gods play a part, so you might not snag a can or schematic every single time.

Crafting

Feeling crafty? Head to your loadout menu, delve into your backpack, and explore Schematic Crafting. Here, you can craft your very own Deadshot Daiquiri Can. Sure, there's a cooldown, but hey, it's free and comes with no strings attached.

Loot Caches

For the thrill-seekers, Deadshot Daiquiri occasionally drops from Loot Caches, offering a rare and exciting discovery. It might take some effort, but stumbling upon it will save you a cool 2,000 Essence compared to buying it from the Perk Machine.

Death Perception

The Death Perception is a Perk in MW3 Zombies where they are referred to as Perk-a-Colas.

Death Perception Effects

It enables players to detect enemies, chests, items, and resources through walls. The highlighted color outline, unique to this perk, is a strategic tool you wouldn't want to miss.

How to Get Death Perception Perk

If you want a free Death Perception perk, there's a procedure that requires a dose of courage and a dash of precision. Start by locating Sorokin Industrial—a large area situated at the upper part of your map. Once you're there, make a beeline for the highest smokestack you can spot. Observe the scenery from this elevated point of view to notice a set of three rings somewhere in the distance. 

Brace yourself and leap off the smokestack. Aim to glide seamlessly through all three rings whilst avoiding any contact with them. This might be quite a challenge and you could need several attempts. Once you've parachuted through all three loops, Mister Peeks gets activated and he'll conveniently pop a Reward Rift for you to collect your free Death Perception perk.

Map Location:

Perk machines

How to Use Death Perception 

Once you acquire Death Perception, understanding how to use it effectively is key. By activating Death Perception, you can see enemies, resources, items, and chests through walls and easily distinguish them through their colored outline. Knowing the locations of enemies behind walls, you can effectively camp and wait for their arrival. You could also use grenades with more accuracy, tipping the balance of the match in your favor. 

Elemental Pop

Elemental Pop Effects

How to Get Elemental Pop Perk

You'll need to head over into the Western Seatown T3 High Threat level zone to find a grave to Pay Respects at. It's the right grave if the tombstone has swords and rifles on it and Mister Peeks sitting on the wall across from it. When you Pay Respects, your weapon will be stripped of its upgrades and a Reward Rift opens up, hopefully containing parts of your upgrades or an Elemental Pop.

It's currently not fully known how to always trigger the Reward Rift to contain an Elemental Pop, but it does seem to be related to quality of the weapon upgrades.
