Players interested in farming Aetherium Crystals fast in “Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War” Zombies can check out some tips and tricks.

Farm Aetherium Crystals Fast

There are a couple of ways to farm Aetherium Crystals in “Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War” Zombies. One way is by just playing the game’s Zombie mode and reaching milestone rounds. While the milestone rounds are not that easy to find, players must play through the mode as many hours as they can to naturally come across these crystals. This approach is called Endless.

Two Farming Methods

The other method and the fastest way to farm Aetherium Crystals in “Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War” is through Exfilling or Exfil. This process rewards players with these precious crystals if they can escape the Zombies by summoning a helicopter. Players receive Aetherium Crystals, but Exfil is recommended to be played with friends who are also determined to exfiltrate the game.

The Aetherium Crystals reward is given after Round 10 and in every five rounds after that. The reward is given one by one initially, however after Round 20, players get two crystals in every milestone. Players can repeat the process to earn more Aetherium Crystals.  

Other Details

“Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War” players have to fight their way through hordes of Undead to the helicopter, and must survive for the exfil to be considered successful. Many players suggest spending the crystals as soon as possible because the upgrades are essential and could help even novice players to reach upper tiers fast. Also, after Round 10 or Round 15, there are times when nuclear enemies begin to spawn.

These are formidable enemies that players have to defeat. However, nuclear enemies sometimes drop Aetherium Crystals when they die. So, they are worth fighting.
