Many people who have discovered the value of the Tombstone perk in Black Ops 2 zombies are asking “how long does the Tombstone Perk stay where you died?”.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with the new perk-a-cola added in Black Ops 2 zombies, you should learn more about the Tombstone Perk here.

How long do you have to pick up the Tombstone Perk

 
tombstone perkIf you have read the page about the Tombstone Perk in Black Ops 2 zombies you already know that when you have this perk-a-cola, you will drop a tombstone where you die (if you do die). After you die in a black ops 2 zombies round you will have to wait until the rest of your team mates make it through the round, and then you will respawn and be able to join up with your team.

When you die, you drop a flashing Tombstone Perk on the ground where you died, and only the person that dropped the Tombstone perk can pick it up. This means that you cannot die with the Tombstone Perk and allow your teammate to pick up the flashing Tombstone perk to take your class, whether it is an awesome class or not.

But when you drop this Tombstone perk and you spawn in the next round, how long do you have to pick up the flashing Tombstone Perk before it disappears? Like other perks that are dropped from dead zombies, such as double points or insta-kill, it seems as though there is a time limit as to how long you have to pick up the drop before it disappears. However, when a double points or insta-kill is dropped you only have a short period of time to pick it up before it begins flashing at an increasingly rapid rate before it disappears you missed it for good. If you miss a double points or insta-kill drop, sure you may be upset, but probably not nearly as upset if you miss the flashing Tombstone Perk that not only cost 2000 points to purchase, but is also loaded up with possibly tens of thousands of points in weapons and perks.

So, that being said let us address the question how long does the Tombstone Perk stay where you died?

You get 60 seconds to pick up the tombstone perk before it disappears. 60 seconds should be plenty of time to pick up the tombstone perk after you die as long as you coordinate with team mates.

One thing you may want to consider when you are playing with a team is to communicate with your team mates. If you are lucky and have good team mates they should be smart enough to observe that you have died and dropped a tombstone perk. If your teammates are intelligent players they will huddle together near the tombstone perk that you dropped when you died and kill the final zombies to start the new round. This will cause you to spawn near your teammates and the tombstone perk to pick up all the weapons and perks you had prior to your death.
