Perk-a-Colas are a feature that can be found in all Zombies maps, except for Dead Ops Arcade, Bus Depot, and the Call of Duty: World at War version of Nacht der Untoten. They also appear in Call of Duty Online's Cyborg Rising game mode. Each drink gives the player a perk to help them survive and fend off the zombie hordes. Some are based off of perks found in multiplayer (such as Juggernog and Speed Cola mirroring Juggernaut and Sleight of Hand respectively).
The machines spawn on fixed locations on each map, with the exception of Shi No Numa, Shangri-La, Moon, Nuketown Zombies, Die Rise, Shadows of Evil,The Giant and Zetsubou No Shima, where the Perk-a-Cola machines will randomly spawn at a spawn point, with some exceptions. All Perk-a-Cola machines require the power be turned on before they can be used, unless there is no power switch in the map. Exceptions to this are all maps from Black Ops onwards on solo containing Quick Revive; Mob of the Dead, where each Perk-a-Cola machine must be individually powered through Afterlife before it can be used; Origins, where each Perk-a-Cola machine must first be powered by its corresponding 115 Generator before it can be bought; and Shadows of Evil, where the system is the same as in Mob of the Dead, only activating perks individually through the Beast. Additionally, in TranZit, a Perk-a-Cola machine can be activated prior to turning on the power through use of a Turbine.
If a player is downed, they will lose all the perks they have purchased and will have to buy them again, unless they have obtained the Focusing Stone, completed the Richtofen's Grand Scheme, completed Maxis' or Richtofen's side of Mined Games, successfully uses Tombstone Soda or Who's Who, or has the Aftertaste GobbleGum in effect.
The map Zetsubou No Shima introduces a feature where utilities and doorways can be covered up in/blocked by webbing, created by spiders. Perk-a-Colas have the ability to be covered by the webs, and also have the ability to be covered by webs at the start of the match just like GobbleGum machines, although only some of the perk machines will be covered in webs. To get rid of webbing on anything, hold the "use" button when the prompt shows up after going up to the covered object.

George A. Romero will down the player in two hits without Juggernog and three hits with it. The Panzer Soldat has the most powerful melee attack out of all zombies with a devastating 125 damage; the Panzer Soldat will down the player in one hit without Juggernog and two hits with Juggernog.

Quick Revive decreases a player's revive time by 50% in co-op, and allows the player to revive themselves on solo (in Call of Duty: Black Ops, Call of Duty: Black Ops II, and Call of Duty: Black Ops III) by automatically taking effect when the player goes down, and temporarily granting them that levels starting pistols upgrade, or others if the player has an appropriate gun that can be used when down during the ten seconds it takes to be revived. It does not require power on Solo. To balance this, it is only available three times, except for some exceptions on several Black Ops 2 maps. It costs 1500 points in co-op in all games and in solo in Call of Duty: World at War, and 500 in solo Call of Duty: Black Ops, Call of Duty: Black Ops II, and Call of Duty: Black Ops III.

According to Richtofen, the main ingredient may rot the consumer's mind, and according to Nikolai Belinski, it is spicy. Every character enjoys its taste. From a quote in Buried made by Marlton Johnson it appears that it does not contain sugar or dairy, but in Origins Dempsey says that he can't remember the last time he's tasted sugar and that his basic rations are barely edible. It mirrors Sleight of Hand.
Double Tap Root BeerEdit
- "Cowboys can't shoot slow or they'll end up below. When they need some help, they reach for the Root beer shelf (Ye-haa) Cowboys can't shoot slow, or they'll end up below, when they need some help, they reach for the Root beer shelf. YA THIRSTY PARTNER!?"
- — Double Tap Root Beer Jingle
Double Tap Root Beer Jingle
- Main article: Double Tap Root Beer
Double Tap Root Beer (Double Tap II in Call of Duty: Black Ops II and Call of Duty: Black Ops III) increases the player's fire rate by 25%, and in Call of Duty: Black Ops II and Call of Duty: Black Ops III also enables bullet weapons to fire two bullets per shot (twice the pellets on shotguns), effectively doubling damage. This can either be a blessing or a curse; while the player can potentially kill zombies faster, the ammo consumption can be detrimental on weapons with an already high rate of fire and substantially decrease accuracy. Despite this, it is very useful on weapons with low rates of fire, such as pump-action shotguns, bolt-action rifles, BAR, HK21 etc. where the ammo will not drain uncontrollably but further increasing the weapons' lethality. This perk costs 2000 points. It is located in:
- The German side next to the MP40 in Verrückt

According to the characters, it is incredibly chewy (even suggesting it can be chewed before swallowed outright), and according to Robert Englund, it is made of chemicals. The characters, such as Samantha , comment on it tasting of prunes. Takeo Masaki comments how he is allergic to prunes, so this is his least favorite perk. It mirrors Lightweight Pro and partially Flak Jacket.

- Main article: Stamin-Up
Stamin-Up affects the player's overall mobility, as it increases movement speed by 7% and sprint duration by 100%. Stamin-Up was first introduced in Ascension.

- — The jingle of Deadshot Daiquiri.
Deadshot Daiquiri Jingle
Deadshot Daiquiri increases hip fire accuracy by 35%, reduces recoil on all weapons (most notably on sniper rifles), removes idle sway on sniper rifles, and adjusts the Aim Assist to target the zombies' heads instead of their torsos (except on wonder weapons and explosive weapons). Deadshot Daiquiri was first introduced in Call of the Dead. It costs 1500 points on consoles, and 1000 on PC as PC does not support auto-aim, giving less benefit of the perk. It is located in:
- On the lighthouse catwalk next to the zipline in Call of the Dead
- In any of the rooms below ground in Shangri-La (changes place with Double Tap Root Beer, Stamin-Up and PhD Flopper)

- — The Tombstone Soda jingle.
Tombstone Soda Jingle
- Main article: Tombstone Soda
Tombstone Soda allows the player to kill themselves while down, and recover their equipment via a Tombstone power-up if they get to it in time. This gives the player all of their weapons, equipment and perks back, with the exception of Tombstone itself. As the player goes down, the player can hold the 'use' button to die prematurely. When the round ends, the player will respawn and be able to collect the power-up, which is shaped like a tombstone, left in the same spot that the player went down. Only the player who killed themselves can collect the power-up, and the power-up will disappear after 90 seconds. Being revived will cancel the perks effects, and the player will have to re-acquire all their perks again. Tombstone Soda only appears in Green Run, and is not available in solo. It costs 2000 points. Its locations are:
- In the room available after turning on the power in the Power Plant (in TranZit)

- Can be Obtained as a perma-perk variant by getting four perk-a-colas before round four in Buried.
Its taste and characters' opinions of it are unknown, although Stuhlinger mentions that it "Tastes like liquid shock" using a negative tone. Tombstone is similar to the multiplayer perks Second Chance, Last Stand and to the deathstreak Final Stand.

Who's Who Jingle
- Main article: Who's Who
Who's Who allows the player to take control of a doppleganger when they go down, allowing them to revive themselves or even keep zombies busy so others can revive the original character. The doppelganger spawns near the original character, has altered vision and is equipped with only an M1911. If the player succeeds in reviving oneself, they will retain all weapons, equipment and perks aside from Who's Who. In addition, dying in a way that the player cannot be revived, such as falling down the gaps between buildings, Who's Who will respawn the player without having to wait for the round's end. It currently only appears in Die Rise. It costs 2000 points. Its location is:
- In one of the elevators in the starting skyscraper in Die Rise
- Main article: Electric Cherry
Electric Cherry creates a lethal electric shockwave around the player whenever they reload their weapon. It costs 2000 points to purchase. The color for this perk is light blue (although the color of the drink is cherry red), and the icon is a red cherry. The effect of the perks is dependent on the amount of rounds left when reloading. Replacing an almost full magazine will produce a very small blast, whereas replacing an empty magazine will produce the largest possible blast. It is found in Mob of the Dead, Origins, Zetsubou No Shima and Der Eisendrache. It has no jingle beyond the unusual chiming noises all perks make in the map. It is very useful in close quarter maps such as Mob of the Dead.
- Is near the above entrance to the Gondola, and is also next to a crafting station.
- In Origins and Der Eisendrache can only be obtained through the Der Wunderfizz orb.
- On Zetsubou No Shima it can only be obtained through the fruit plant.
This beverage is necessary to complete the A Burst of Flavor achievement/trophy, requiring killing ten zombies within the given radius of one entire shockwave.
In Mob of the Dead, when the player approaches the Electric Cherry machine, it makes an unusual chiming noise but does not have a known perk jingle.

- Main article: Vulture Aid
Vulture Aid bestows four unique effects to the player. It costs 3000 points, and is located in the church. This perk is also necessary to complete either the Richtofen or Maxis side of the Mined Games Easter Egg.
When a player has Vulture Aid:
- They will be able to see perks, wall weapons, places to draw chalk weapon outlines, and the Mystery Box through walls over a short distance.
- Zombies will occasionally drop small packets of ammo or points.
- Certain zombies will release a cloud of green gas upon death, which will cause players standing inside it to be ignored by other zombies.
- Zombies' eyes will glow brighter, making them easier to see and distinguish from perk and weapon locations.
The perk is located in the back of the church near the altar in Buried; where Quick Revive is located in Borough. To enter the church, The Giant must break down the barrier. The characters often comment on their eyesight after consuming the perk. The perk partially mirrors Scavenger, Sitrep, and Engineer.

Der Wunderfizz is a machine in Origins and Der Eisendrache that provides the player a random perk bottle for 1500 points. It will relocate itself to one of several locations if used a certain amount of times, similar to the Mystery Box. It requires power to function properly. In order to know its actual location, the player will have to look at the sky and look for a lightning strike.

Widow's Wine allows the player to send a spider web around nearby zombies when hurt by one, which slows them down momentarily. It also gives the player a special type of grenade similar to the Semtex which sends a spider web when it detonates, and increases melee damage.
- Located in the rift, next to the portal which leads between the Canal and the Rift in Shadows of Evil.
- Only obtainable via Der Wunderfizz in Der Eisendrache.
- Can be obtained after defeating the Giant Spider in Zetsubou No Shima.
- Main article: Amm-O-Matic
Amm-O-Matic is a cancelled vending machine in Der Riese. Although it cannot be seen or used in Der Riese, there is a stairway that leads up to it next to another cut perk called Candolier. The stairway is visible, but the player is unable to climb to the top of it. It is located somewhere near the next room to Double Tap. It seems that the idea was scrapped at the last second by Treyarch. Unused sound files that remain on the game's disc confirm that this machine was designed to give the player a Max Ammo upon purchase. The perk cost 10000 points and was only able to be used once. Its color is baby blue, similar to the Quick Revive machine, and its symbol resembles a bullet.
- Main article: Candolier
Candolier is a Perk-a-Cola machine that was originally set to appear in Call of Duty: World at War, but was cut from the game. Not much is known about the machine, but it is most likely going to be the same function as the perk Bandolier from Call of Duty 4 and World at War by giving the player the ability to carry extra ammo. Its color is light green, and its symbol is a row of bullets, implying the idea of carrying extra ammo upon the perk being bought and used.

Obtaining More than Four PerksEdit
- Main article: Random Perk Bottle
Starting with the release of Ascension, the maps could contain more than four perks. However, the player can only buy four perks at one time: attempting to buy another when currently owning four will result in failure. To circumvent this, there are a few methods on maps after Ascension to obtain more than four, up to nine perks (with the release of Origins). The most commonplace is the Random Perk Bottle, a power-up that awards every living player with an extra random perk. Also, obtaining the Focusing Stone and completing Richtofen's Grand Scheme will award the player all perks that last until the end of the game. However, despite there being five with the release of Mule Kick in the Call of Duty: Black Ops versions of Verrückt, Shi No Numa, Der Riese, Kino der Toten and "Five", there is no way to obtain more than four.
In TranZit, players can obtain over four perks by buying any three perks, then buying Tombstone Soda. The player must then down themselves, and "Not Feed the Zombies". After the player respawns, they will have to collect the other two perks they didn't have and buy Tombstone again. The player must be quick, otherwise their tombstone power-up will disappear. On TranZit, this can extremely difficult due to the large distances to travel. The only location to actually obtain enough perks to overcome the limit would be the Town, where Juggernog and Stamin-Up are located (provided the player was downed here so that the Tombstone would spawn here as well, and the player has bought all the other perks).
In Die Rise, killing all of the Minions with 100% accuracy (or using the Trample Steam or knifing) during their respective round will award players a free perk bottle. The player is also able to obtain the six perks on the map by completing the easter egg.
In Buried, the player can obtain a free perk bottle by navigating through the Ghost's mansion when the lights are on, the lights should come back on after three to five rounds of the previous navigation. The player also acquires all seven perks upon completion of the "Mined Games" easter egg on Buried. Another way to get another free perk is to get a Ballistic Knife from the Mystery Box and then go to the Saloon. Once the player is at the Saloon, the player must then look on the floor for a white line. When they see the white line they must then be behind it and then shoot a knife at the dartboard. If the player's knife lands in the middle, they will get 100 points and then the piano behind them will play. This means that they triggered an Easter Egg. Go to the mansion, and then when you're at the entrance near the hedge maze, go to the opening to the mansion on the other side. Once the player is inside again, they will see the Ghost playing the piano, go to the right side of the piano and you will see an indicator saying to hold the action button and tip 10 points. Once you tip 10 points, you will get a free perk. You'll have 90 seconds to get a free perk using this method, if the player fails to get the perk, he/she must wait the next round and then attempt it again. Also, if the player can't shoot their knife at the dartboard in the middle, they must wait for the next round and try it again.
In Origins, the player can dig in orange spots if they have the Golden Shovel and are in Zombie Blood. Digging up an orange dig spot rewards the player with an empty perk bottle, which adds an extra perk slot. However, only four empty perk bottles can be acquired through digging through orange bone piles, the last perk should be Double Tap, for it comes free with one of the rewards at the stone chests at Generators 1 and 6.
- The original four perk machines are based on old soft drink vending machines. Juggernog resembles an old Coca-Cola machine , Speed Cola resembles an old 7up machine, Quick Revive resembles an old Pepsi 5 cent machine, and Double Tap resembles an old 6 cent Coca-Cola machine.
- In Der Riese and Origins, going prone in front of the perk machines will give the player 25 points, although visually showing as 20 or 30 in Call of Duty: World at War. This is a joke as to how a quarter can sometimes be found under a vending machine.
- Bumping into a Perk-a-Cola machine will make the sound of glass bottles clacking against each other.
- An unusable Juggernog bottle can be found on the table near the pool in the multiplayer map Villa in the Wii version of Call of Duty: Black Ops.
- An unusable Juggernog, Double Tap, Speed Cola and two Quick Revive bottles can be found in the glass case just in front of the Quick Revive vending machine in Kino der Toten.
- In Samantha's destroyed room, there are soda bottles for Juggernog, Quick Revive, Speed Cola and Double Tap Root Beer on the floor.
- When drinking in the Wii and iOS version, the bottle does not come close to the character's lips, however in the iOS version, the bottle comes slightly closer.
- All Perk-a-Cola machines except for Mule Kick in Call of Duty: Black Ops have a bloody hand print on them.
- In Mob of the Dead, all the Perk-a-Colas and the Pack-a-Punch, with the exception of Electric Cherry, have a strange static effect on them.
- In Mob of the Dead, the perk machines play a heavily distorted version of their jingles, resembling a bell toll.
- As of the June 27, 2013 update, all Perk-a-Colas in Mob of the Dead and Buried have an updated HUD icon.
- In the map Metro there are unusable perk bottles that can be found beside the yellow hut to the right of the red entrance (where the "A" flag spawns). Inside there is a glass cabinet that holds Tombstone, Quick Revive, Deadshot Daiquiri, and Juggernog.
- In Dr Monty's Factory, various Perk-a-Cola bottles can be seen on conveyor belts in the background. This is most visible on the sides of the screen.
