Jumping Jacks, formerly known as Minions, are round-specific zombies that serves as mini bosses appearing in the zombie map, Die Rise, in Call of Duty: Black Ops II. While they are quite similar to Crawlers in Call of Duty: Black Ops, they are much bigger and can crawl to walls and ceilings and attack players in an unpredictable manner. Unlike Hellhounds, they teleport in front of players to charge and attack them in an unpredictable manner. They explode with a flash of electricity which can harm players if they are too close to it. While they can be killed rather easy, they can easily pick off survivors if one of the players go on separate paths. The easiest way to kill Minions is the use of Trample Steam as it can easily kill off a number of enemy Minion so players will not have to worry about using up ammo to kill them, or with the use of Claymores or grenades as they do not penalize accuracy rating in order to receive the Random Perk Bottle as its moderate blast radius is sufficient enough to kill a number of Minions coming at their direction.
The most notable difference between Crawlers and Minions is that Minions have torn clothing around them, as well as the ability to crawl in an unpredictable manner (as mentioned above). To date, they are the only special zombies (along with Brutus in Mob of the Dead) that have appeared in Call of Duty: Black Ops II.
