How to Get Refined Aetherium Crystals in Cold War Zombies
To get Refined Aetherium Crystals, you’ll want to play the new Outbreak Zombies mode. The developers have suggested that completing multiple objectives will eventually lead to players earning some of these crystals.
Refined Aetherium Crystals will also be awarded to players in traditional-round based zombies modes beginning in Season 2. You must reach Wave/ Round 20 to be rewarded with a Refined Aetherium Crystals, instead of the normal Aetherium Crystals.
You’ll then earn another Refined crystal every five levels.
