Here’s how you can unlock every single Wonder Weapon in Call of Duty’s Outbreak Zombies mode in Black Ops Cold War.

Here’s how Outbreak players can obtain all Wonder Weapons in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War’s exciting twist on Zombies in Season 4.

The Ray Gun, R.A.I. K-84, D.I.E. Shockwave, and CRBR-S are all available to obtain in Black Ops Cold War’s Zombies Outbreak mode through various means. Being Wonder Weapons, all these tools of destruction will ensure maximum effectiveness while fighting Zombies.

They all feature in all of Cold War’s key Zombies maps – Die Maschine, Firebase Z, and Mauer der Toten. They are rare, ultra-powerful weapons that can be Pack-A-Punched to make them even more devastating in the field.

Since each Zombies map has its own individual Wonder Weapons to obtain, many originally questioned which ones would be available in Outbreak. Luckily, Treyarch has added all of them into the mode, so players won’t have to worry about missing out on their favorite one.

How to obtain Wonder Weapons in CoD: Cold War Outbreak Zombies

#1 – Loot Crates

Loot crates are placed throughout each of Treyarch’s Outbreak maps and include tons of items, equipment, and even guns for players to obtain. Meaning that if fate is smiling in your favor, it may grant you a Legendary Wonder Weapon upon opening a chest.

We think your best bet will be the Golden Loot Chest, which can be acquired via a side quest you may run into on certain rounds of Outbreak.

Here’s how to find and complete the side mission:

  1. On your map, look for a symbol that looks like a cloud with a lightning bolt striking a chest
  2. Approach the chest and hold the prompted button to activate the side quest
  3. Lots of Zombies will now teleport into your location
  4. You need to keep killing them until they stop spawning
  5. Once you’re certain the area is clear, approach the Golden Loot Chest and hold the use button
  6. It will spew a host of rewards, including the Full-Power ability

It’s completely up to luck which rewards the chest will bestow upon you, but it’s a fairly simple activity and could easily reward you with a Wonder Weapon.

#2 – Trials

Trials are not new to Zombies, but still give exceptional rewards if they are undertaken and completed. We highly recommend upgrading your Trials rewards to the “Legendary” tier before redeeming them. If you’re done with an Outbreak round, you can still teleport to the next one and keep your previous progress from the last map.

Legendary rewards do not guarantee a Wonder Weapon, but they do always drop a Pack-A-Punched weapon. So if you do get a Wonder Weapon, then you’re well on your way.

Here’s a full list of all the possible Trials you could randomly get:

  • Get Multiple Kills As Quickly As Possible
  • Take Damage and Recover Health
  • Kill Zombies with Equipment
  • Remain Inside Location As Long As Possible
  • Kill Zombies in the Dark Aether
  • Kill Any Zombies In Location
  • Rebuild Barricades
  • Kill Enemies from a Higher Elevation
  • Avoid Taking Damage
  • Kill Enemies with Melee Attacks
  • Kill Zombies with Hip Fire
  • Kill Enemies Within Close Range
  • Kill Zombies While Crouched
  • Kill Zombies That Are Unaware of Any Player’s presence
  • Kill Zombies With Critical Finishers

On top of this, Trials also drop lots of Essence and power-ups for your team too.

#3 – Elite/Boss enemies: Krasny Soldats, Megatons & Orda

Sometimes you don’t have to go looking for big boss enemies like Orda as they will come to you. Megaton enemies and Krasny Soldats will usually be gleefully wandering around the map once you get a few maps deep.

These boss Zombies spawn at random on the map, and sometimes during main and side quests. The loot drops for these Zombies are always great, so if you eliminate enough, you’ll eventually be given a Wonder Weapon and lots of Essence to upgrade it.

In our playthrough, we managed to get a Ray Gun to drop from a Krasny Soldat.

#4 – Mystery Box

The classic gambling strategy that Zombies fans have learned to have a love and hate relationship with. For the low cost of 950 points, you can risk your points in the hope of landing a Wonder Weapon.

However, in true gambling fashion, don’t start throwing points at the box because it’s given you seven Sniper Rifles in a row. You could get one first go, or after fifty, by which point you could’ve Pack-A-Punched a regular gun to the max.

#5 – Ronald Raygun

No, that is not a misprint, an effective way to land yourself a Ray Gun is to find and eliminate Ronald Raygun. An amusing Easter Egg added during the Season 3 Outbreak update, if you’re able to find this pink-haired punk and kill him, then he’ll drop a free Ray Gun.

The only problem with Ronald is that he could literally show up in any place, any time. His whereabouts and time of arrival are completely random. People have encountered him during Round 1, whereas he’s bypassed others completely. So keep on the lookout for him.

#6 – Fishing

Incredibly, fishing is now a mini-game in Call of Duty. Black Ops Cold War has made it so that players of Outbreak can now find fishing spots to cast a rod and reel in some goodies.

Along with Essence and Perks, there’s also the chance of acquiring a Wonder Weapon from a fishing spot. The odds of doing this will be extremely low, and it might not be worth your time, but if you’re in need and have time to spare, then why not try a spot of fishing?
