The Vanguard Season 2 update has brought back the classic Ray Gun Wonder Weapon, and here’s how you can get your hands on it after dropping into the new Terra Maledicta map.

Vanguard Season 2 has finally arrived, bringing a plethora of brand-new content for players to enjoy, including the new Zombies Terra Maledicta map along with some additional Wonder Weapons.

The Ray Gun Wonder Weapon has been featured in every Zombies mode in the Call of Duty franchise since World at War Zombies, and you can now use it to take out hoards of the undead in Terra Maledicta.

How to get the Ray Gun in Vanguard Season 2

Ray Gun Method #1 – Mystery Boxes

If you want to get your hands on Vanguard’s Ray Gun Wonder Weapon then the first method is by opening Mystery Boxes that provide you with different weapons on both the Terra Maledicta and Der Anfang maps.

This Wonder Weapon can be found inside one of these and you’ll need to save at least 950 points by killing enemies before you can acquire it. You can improve your chances of finding the Ray Gun by doing this during a higher round.

However, there’s no guarantee that you’ll find it on the first spin, so you might have to spend a lot of points on Sniper Rifles and various other weapons before you finally get this Wonder Weapon.

At the time of writing, there aren’t any other ways for you to unlock this powerful weapon such as completing a particular Quest, so you’ll need to stick with these two methods until you come across the Ray Gun.

This powerful weapon is capable of firing 20 blasts before reloading and you can upgrade this to 40 with the Pack-a-Punch machine, letting you fire continuous shots that can tear undead enemies apart.

The Ray Gun also features a fairly quick reload time of 3 seconds and is effective at any range while boasting extremely low recoil, allowing you to eliminate Zombies quickly and accurately from a distance.

Aside from the return of the classic Ray Gun, the Season 2 Vanguard Zombies update has also added a brand-new Wonder Weapon in the form of the Decimator Shield, along with other fun content.

Vanguard’s Zombies mode was initially panned by the community for its lack of classic features, with our review calling it an “empty experience,” so this new content will hopefully make it more exciting.
