The best way to get through the High-Level Threat zone in MW3 Zombies is using the Ray Gun, the classic Zombies Wonder Weapon. To craft it before any match, players will need the Ray Gun Schematic, so here’s the best way to get it in MWZ.

Zombies has a lot of content to offer MW3 players, and Season 2 Reloaded has only gone and introduced even more. From a new story mission and Dark Aether Rift to brand new Schematics, there’s a lot for players to grind.

Earning rewards and getting the best equipment possible will increase your survival greatly, as Perks, Wonder Weapons, and Aetherium Tools can make you strong enough to take on the toughest of enemies.

Schematics allow you to craft items using materials, and you can even get Wonder Weapon Schematics which allow you to head into the battle with some of the best weapons in the game.

With that said, you may be wondering how you can get the Ray Gun Schematic in MW3 Zombies, so here’s everything you need to know.

What is the Ray Gun Schematic in MW3 Zombies?

The Ray Gun Schematic is an Ultra Rare item you can get in MW3 Zombies allowing you to craft a Ray Gun every 48 hours. You must exfil safely with the Ray Gun Schematic in your inventory, and then it will become available in the Schematic Crafting section of your Gear.

Players can also get the Ray Gun through the Mystery Box, a Reward Rift, or by getting a Ray Gun Weapon Case, which you can guarantee yourself by taking out a Warlord boss. However, you won’t be able to exfil and keep it, and that’s why the Ray Gun Schematic is superior.

MW3 Zombies: How to get Ray Gun Schematic

To get the Ray Gun Schematic in MW3 Zombies, you must complete Contracts in the High Threat Zones (red or Dark Aether) and check the Reward Rift that appears to see if you were lucky enough to get it, and then safely exfil with it in your inventory to unlock the ability to craft it.

The red Threat Zone gives you the best chance of receiving the rarest loot, and Schematics for the Ray Gun, the Scorcher, and V-R11 are among the rare. Keep farming Contracts in the red zone and you will eventually get the Ray Gun Schematic.

Once you get and exfil with the Ray Gun Schematic, you will have it forever, but there is a huge 48-hour cooldown every time you craft it.

Best way to get Ray Gun Schematic in MW3 Zombies

The best way to get the Ray Gun Schematic in MW3 Zombies is to farm Contracts in the red High Threat Zone. The best Contracts to farm are the Deliver Cargo missions, as these can be done very quickly and without the hassle of needing to kill a bunch of zombies and potentially get overrun.

You’ll need to gear up as this zone is not easy to survive in, so stock up on Perks, Aetherium Crystals, Armor, Pack-a-Punch weapons, and ammo to give yourself the best chance. If you can get a Wonder Weapon, even better, as you’ll need the best weapons and gear possible.
