has just posted a Q&A with Treyarch’s Zombies Design Lead, Jimmy Zielinsk. Check out what he has to say about the new Ray Gun Mark II that’s arriving on the Vengeance DLC July 2nd.

About the Ray Gun Mark II:

It’s a re-imagining of the original Ray Gun with new functionality. We looked at what the original Ray Gun did, which was an explosive projectile weapon. We decided to make a real laser beam gun that goes through everything, and that’s what we did.

The original Ray Gun would shoot a projectile and make an impact at that place and explode. The Mark II is actually a laser beam, or bolt, that does a triple burst and fires down range through walls or zombies. If the wall’s not too thick like cement, it’s going to pass through – and effectively hit – as many zombies as you have lined up. It’s in the box and you have a chance to pull it. It’s also been added to all the previous Call of Duty: Black Ops II Zombies maps.


The final design of the Mark II:

The original designer of the art for the first Ray Gun, Max Porter, also made this design. It still bears his name. We just kind of talked about it and he just went away and did the art.

It’s cobbled together with parts of the original Ray Gun, plus some new bits. It’s an original creation that really harkens back to the old design, and it can be Pack-A-Punched just like the other weapons.

    Looks and seems pretty sick, can’t wait to use it!

  • Batman

    It was leaked already, so why not allow us to use it?

    Plus: Does it replace the ray gun mark 1

    • David Sync

      No u either get the original Ray Gun through the box or u get the Mark 2

      • Alex | FamousIsLIVE

        I believe it is replacing it. I thought I remembered reading an interview somewhere about it.

    • Devin Wolfe

      I don’t know why they won’t let us use it seems pointless not to now.

    • Batman

      They are ruining the surprise since there is endless videos with gameplay of it spread on youtube. So they should let us use it

  • Lorhelm

    • Jonathan Theghostsarespooky We
