MW3 Zombies: Where to find the Speed Cola Recipe Schematic

You can get the Speed Cola Recipe as random schematic drops in Reward Rifts from Threat Zone 1 contracts in MW3 Zombies. This makes Speed Cola one of the easiest Perk-a-Colas to get in the game, which is great considering it’s such a valuable asset. You’re almost guaranteed to find one after beating only one contract, so take it easy, as you won’t need much more than maybe an Uncommon weapon to handle any of these contracts.

Unlike the Epic Aether Tool in Zone 3 or even the Raw Aetherium Crystal in Zone 2, Speed Cola is one you can approach nearly any way due to how much easier Threat Zone 1 is. You can chain together a ton of contracts that are packed together in this portion of the game’s map and find any of the following schematics:

  • Brain Rot
  • Cryo Freeze
  • Deadshot Daquiri
  • Napalm Burst
  • Speed Cola
  • Stamin-Up

Once you’ve found the Speed Cola Recipe, extract from any Exfil point in Zone 1 to play it safe and keep this valuable Perk-a-Cola. It’s my favorite, as it can get you out of a bind even with Pack-a-Punch weapons when you need to reload in a sticky situation, dropping the wait time to a fraction of the regular reload animation.

Best Contracts to Get Speed Cola Schematics in MWZ

Unsurprisingly, Cargo Delivery is among my top recommendations for farming to get the Speed Cola schematic in MW3 Zombies. However, even while playing solo, you can also reasonably chain that with some Big Bounty, Outlast, and Raid Weapon Stash contracts without feeling too pressured. My main advice is to switch it up if you’re comfortable, as running constant Cargo Delivery missions can get stale.

How Do You Get Schematics in MW3 Zombies?

All schematics in MW3 Zombies can be acquired through contracts and missions. I have personally found contracts to be extremely successful for gaining a lot of schematics in quick succession — as was the case with Speed Cola. Further, a user on Reddit took time to create a loot table that has information on what every schematic can be linked to, so that can act as a great point of reference.

Overall, be sure to complete contracts whenever you can, and you will have plenty of schematics in no time. Now that you know how to get the Speed Cola schematic, you can dive back into the world and grab it for yourself.
