You can play couch co-op Splitscreen in Black Ops Cold War Zombies by connecting the second controller and joining the lobby. Below are the exact steps you can follow for it.

  1. Launch the game and press the X button on your PlayStation controller on the main menu. Xbox players can do the same by pressing the A button.
  2. Now go down and select the Zombies mode.
  3. Be sure to have your second controller connected.
  4. Once you have the second controller ready press the X button on your PlayStation controller or the A button on your Xbox controller from it.
  5. Now, choose your account. You can choose the guest account or the second account without PSN or Xbox Live to play on the local mode. Alternatively, if you want to play online then the second account that you log in from should have these services in order to join online modes.
  6. The main account player can choose the mode that both players can play on. They also get to change the different settings.
  7. Once everything is ready player 1 can start the game.
  8. In case you get an error message or disconnect then you can repeat the above steps to play the game.


Remember, the default split-screen is vertical which means the two screens will be on the top and bottom. If you would like to play side by side that is one screen on the left and the other on the right then you will have to change it from the settings.
