Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Poison Cabinet Code

Figuring out the Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War poison cabinet code during the Desperate Measures mission can be tricky, but this guide will show you how to obtain it!

Figuring out the Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War poison cabinet code in the Desperate Measures mission can be tricky. Unlike many Call of Duty campaigns in the past, Cold War's campaign gives you a bit more freedom, with a non-linear structure across a handful of its missions. 

In this guide, we'll show you everything you need to know about obtaining the poison cabinet code in Black Ops Cold War. (Spoilers ahead.)

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Poison Cabinet Code

Around a third of the way through the Desperate Measures mission, after you've requested a tea appointment with the General, you'll be instructed to poison his tea.

Before you can do that, you'll need to shut down the cameras, then head downstairs to Kravchenko's office to obtain the poison. Of course, you can't just open the cabinet that contains the poison, so you'll need the locker combination to get in.

When you enter the office, you'll notice a computer on the left and a periodic table on the wall to the right. If you search through the computer, you'll find the following elements mentioned:

  • S  16
  • Re  75
  • Nd  60

Look at the periodic table on the wall to figure out the combination in conjunction with the elements listed above. Each element features a number next to it, which we have highlighted above.

From there, you should have your code: 167560. Go ahead and type it in, and you'll gain access to the cabinet that contains the Nova-6 poison.

Now, walk back to the General's office, let the guard know you're ready to meet with him now and be prepared for one of the tensest moments of the game.

Once you're at the desk with the General, pick a cup of tea to poison. Whichever one you pick, the General will grab the opposite of the one you poisoned. 

He'll ask you what's on your mind, so point to one of the objects behind the general and swap the cups quickly after he turns around. Then, look at his cup of tea, and select the option "Drink up, my friend." He'll then take a drink and you can pretty much guess what happens next.

And with that code, you should have everything you'll need to successfully get into the cabinet to obtain the poison you can use on the General. There are other things to do in this mission, but this is the quickest method for taking down the General.
