From World at War to Black Ops 4, these are the top 5 Wonder Weapons in Treyarch’s Call of Duty Zombies
When Treyarch first brought to life the Zombies game mode in 2008 with Call of Duty World at War, they didn’t skimp on style. While almost all the guns at your disposal on Nacht der Untoten were based on real life weapons, the developers sneaked in a tasty treat known as the Ray Gun. A gun pulled straight out of the sci-fi pulp magazines of yesteryear, this became Call of Duty’s first Wonder Weapon.
With over 50 Wonder Weapons featured throughout five Treyarch titles, it may be hard to keep track of them all. To help you remember which ones still reign supreme, here are my top five (in no order) Wonder Weapons I have ever had the pleasure to lay hands on.
Note: This list is comprised of only Treyarch Wonder Weapons. While the folks at Infinity Ward and Sledgehammer definitely cooked up some great guns in Infinite Warfare and WWII, those guns were not considered for this article.
More canon than gun, the Thunder Gun was many players first Wonder Weapon. For those whose Zombies career began on Kino der Toten, this gun holds a special place in their hearts.
With infinite damage at close range, the Thunder Gun could take out a whole train of zombies in one blast. When upgraded to the Zeus Cannon, this gun gains increased reload speeds and an extra two blasts per clip.
While this baby may be too much to handle for some more novice players, the Thunder Gun was a must have weapon for anyone attempting high rounds on Kino and Ascension.
Arguably the most recognizable Wonder Weapon in Call of Duty history, the Monkey Bomb is an outright necessity in most Zombies map. A tactical grenade that distracts all zombies around it, allowing you to reload, run away, or just rest your hands for a couple seconds.
While it does take a few seconds to wind up before throwing, it has the potential to create moments that players will never forget.
Getting cornered by a hoard of zombies with no ammo, realizing you’re seconds away from going down, then releasing a monkey from your hands to save the day. That’s what Zombies is about.
The quintessential experiment of a crazy German scientist, the WunderWaffe DG-2 shoots straight electricity.
While the Thundergun sends Zombies flying out of the map, the WunderWaffe would electrify whole swarms of them right in front of you, adding a certain kind of flavor that the Zombies mode continues to embrace.
Even though it was first introduced on Shi No Numa, it perfectly mimics the look and feel of Der Riese with the electric bulbs and spikes matching the teleporter’s design.
The map Ascension didn’t really care to be all that conventional. The first map to not include one of the main four perks, Double Tap, and instead replace it with two new ones also had the bravery to replace Monkey Bombs with a new contraption.
The Gersh Device, like the WunderWaffe DG-2, is another example of a Wonder Weapon that embraces the map, and story, surrounding it. Created by the eponymous Dr. Gersh, players use this device to free him as part of the maps easter egg quest.
Though it takes a tad longer to throw than a Monkey Bomb, the visually stunning portal it creates is worth the wait. Sucking up all zombies around it, this feels like the Monkey Bombs on steroid. While it’s unfortunate we don’t see it on more maps, I think the rarity makes it that much better.
There has not been a Wonder Weapon that has provided as much laughs, rage, and overall fun more than the Sliquifier. Exclusively found in Black Ops II’s Die Rise map, this gun shoots purple liquid that causes players and zombies to slip and slide around the floor.
In higher rounds, when camping with three friends on the roof with this gun, chaos is sure to ensue. Whether you’re causing your friends to slip straight into zombie hoards, or you’re the one slipping on your friends liquid, the whole lobby is in for a wild time.
Outside the hilarity, in a skilled players hands, the Sliquifier can chain kill ridiculous amounts of zombies with one blast. Bundle that in with the fact that it’s extremely easy to build, this Wonder Weapon deserves its place on the top five.

How to unlock Diamond rocket launchers easily in Black Ops Cold War
Here’s how to unlock Diamond for the launchers in Black Ops Cold War.
How to unlock Diamond camo for launchers fast in Black Ops Cold War.
Black Ops Cold War has a grilling camo grind for the new Dark Matter Ultra mastery camo for multiplayer. Out of all of the weapon classes, the launchers are notorious in all Call of Duty titles for being the toughest of the bunch.
It’s a long process but its do-able. In Modern Warfare there was a total of four launchers, and now in Black Ops Cold War, there’s only two to do.
In the video below, YouTuber “PrimitiveAK” explains the most efficient way to unlock the Diamond camo for launchers.
Best Ways To Unlock All Camos
- Spray- Get 50 kills. PrimitiveAK pointed out that assists count as well.
- Stripes – Destroy 50 equipment, scorestreaks or vehicles. Run the engineer perk to highlight all streaks and equipment, this helps immensely.
- Classic – Get three kills without dying 20 times with all kills coming from the launcher. Hardcore Nuketown is recommended for this challenge. Makes the challenge much easier.
- Geometric – Destroy 50 ground-based streaks in multiplayer. Run an engineer and play combined arms/dirty bomb and destroy as many streaks and vehicles. Sentry guns count.
- Flora – Destroy 50 aerial streaks or vehicles. Cigma is very easy to do, but for the RPG you need to target care package helicopters. UAV’s are very hard to do. Attack helicopters are also do-able. We don’t recommend going after UAV’s with the RPG.
- Science – Destroy three enemy vehicles or scorestreaks in a game 10 times. Run Combined Arms for this challenge.
- Psychadelic – Kill two or more enemies rapidly 25 times in multiplayer. Get multikills with launchers. Play hardcore Nuketown. Prefire angles and wait for enemies to group up. You can reload and quickly kill another enemy for the challenge to still count.
The process for rocket launchers is long and you most likely will get frustrated several times. Expect to be in for the long haul if you’re going for DM Ultra.
Fortnite devs respond to crazy Fortnite Season 5 XP glitch
A big exploit has been found in the new season and the Fortnite devs have had to respond to a crazy Fortnite Season 5 XP glitch.
Season 5 is still in its infancy and yet some Fortnite players have already managed to reach Level 300 after discovering a huge XP glitch. Epic Games has since responded to the exploit.
Following the dramatic events that unfolded with Galactus and his subsequent defeat, Fortnite has undergone some major changes.
One notable change is the addition and alteration of popular locations. Epic Games are actively encouraging players to explore the map and are offering rewards for players that search every nook and cranny of the Season 5 island.
Fortnite XP glitch
This bug wasn’t the usual case of jumping onto a specific pixel, pausing the game seven times, and entering a 64-digit code. This XP glitch was actually something that any frolicking Fortniter could easily stumble across.
As demonstrated in a YouTube video by Glitch King, if players landed in a specific spot in Weeping Woods, then the 8K discovery bonus would trigger. However, if you kept running around the exact same spot over and over again, the game would keep automatically triggering the 8K bonus.
As a result, player levels skyrocketed thanks to this obscene accumulation of XP in such a short space of time.
Here’s the full video to show how players achieved this.
Can I still use the glitch?
Unfortunately not. People’s desire to let their exploitation be heard has inevitably backfired, as Epic responded quite quickly upon hearing the news.
Here’s an official tweet from the Fortnite Status handle explaining the whole situation.
A typical case of the few spoiling it for the many. Thankfully it was only a few hours later that the page posted an update. It’s nice to see they’re awarding XP for those who’ve had to miss out on earning XP normally.
Epic does have to take responsibility for this glitch as it’s an entirely harmless one that was accidentally discovered, but it’s just a shame that it has been exploited so heavily and restricted honest players in the process.

Possible PS5 version of Modern Warfare found
Call of Duty fans love Modern Warfare more than most other titles in the franchise. It seems we might be getting a next-gen remaster soon.
Call of Duty fans love Modern Warfare more than most other titles in the franchise. Thus the idea of a PS5 remaster of the title is exciting, and it seems we might be getting that sooner than we think.
Modern Warfare is arguably the most popular title in the entire Call Of Duty franchise. For many fans, it’s what got them into the series so whenever there’s a new development announced about it, the hype is enormous.
Infinity Ward Lead Multiplayer VFX Artist Reed Shingledecker recently confirmed new Modern Warfare content soon. The recent release of Black Ops: Cold War made it seem like that would be the main thing Activision would be focusing on for a while, so this is definitely came as a big surprise.
There is mass speculation about what he was referring to and one reddit user has created hype for a potential PS5 version of Modern Warfare. Here’s everything we know about this possible leak.
Next-Gen Modern Warfare on PS5 Leak
Reddit user asjonesy99 made a post in r/GamingLeaksAndRumours which strongly hints at a next-gen version of the title coming soon. The drop-down menu displayed the PS4 version when purchasing the game, but what caught fans’ eyes was the option for a PS5 version.
When the player tried to pick this option, it became locked. This could be some sort of glitch or something that’s currently in development.
It’s hard to tell whether or not this is a legitimate hint at an upcoming PS5 version of Modern Warfare. It’s entirely likely that this could just be a simple error with the disc and this whole leak amounts to practically nothing.
Modern Warfare has become a huge staple for FPS fans so the excitement that this leak caused is completely understandable. The possibility of a next-gen Modern Warfare for a whole new group of young players is nice to think about.
Keep in mind that this is still a rumor and we’ll keep checking for updates on this. That said, we hope to see a PS5 remaster of this title soon. Even if we don’t, we now know that there definitely is more Modern Warfare content on its way and that’s exciting on its own.
