MW3 Zombies players can get a free animated RAM-7 Blueprint following the Season 3 Reloaded update, so here’s everything you need to know about how to get it.

MW3 Zombies received some brand-new content for the Season 3 Reloaded update, including a new Warlord called Rainmaker, as well as a brand-new Story Mission titled Union, which introduced another Dark Aether Rift for players to explore.

This Dark Aether Rift gives players an opportunity to earn a free animated Blueprint for the RAM-7 Assault Rifle called Smoke Signals, so here’s how to get it.

How to get RAM-7 Smoke Signals Blueprint in MW3 Zombies

To get the RAM-7 Smoke Signals Blueprint in MW3 Zombies, you’ll need to complete the new Union Story Mission, enter the new Dark Aether Rift and complete the three contracts, and finally activate and defeat the Gyanxi Disciple boss fight.

Here’s a complete step-by-step breakdown of what you need to do:

  1. Start and complete the Act 4 Union story mission to obtain the Giraffe artifact.
  2. Pick up the three other artifacts on Urzikstan: Laptop with Stickers, Science Journal, and Imaginary Friend Drawing.
  3. Upgrade these to gold by completing the Tier 3 Triangle Easter egg four times.
    • Find purple triangles in the Tier 3 zone, shoot the runes near the triangle, and a broken triangle will spawn in which you need to stand in the correct place to form the shape. Perform the summoning and start filling the orb with souls, and then your artifact will be upgraded.
  4. Enter the third Dark Aether Rift introduced in Season 3 Reloaded.
  5. Complete the three Dark Aether Contracts: Bounty, Escort, and Outlast.
  6. Once completed, you then need to destroy three spores that can be found in the middle island section of the new Dark Aether.
  7. After you’ve destroyed three, a big one will spawn in the middle of this island which you also need to destroy.
  8. The Gyanxi Disciple boss will then spawn, and once you defeat it, you will have earned the Smoke Signals Blueprint.

This can be quite the task, as you’re essentially completing all the new Season 3 Reloaded MW3 Zombies content. We recommend making sure you have a solid squad before attempting this, and also using normal Sigils as opposed to Elder Sigils to ensure you have enough time to complete all the Contracts, destroy the four spores, and defeat the Gyanxi Disciple boss in the Dark Aether.
