Here are the top five Wonder Weapons in all of Treyarch Call of Duty Zombies

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.

Thunder Gun

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.

Monkey Bombs

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.

 

WunderWaffe DG-2

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.

Gersh Device

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.

Sliquifier

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.

Apex Legends devs announce commitment to fixing major server issues

The issue of server and net code problems has consistently caused problems for Apex Legends. However, a new dev blog is on the way.

apex legends net code server issues

Apex Legends has had ongoing problems with server and net code issues. However, it does seem that they are trying their best to communicate with the community and plan improvements.

Over the last two years, Apex Legends players have experienced severe server and net code issues that many have complained about since release.

Of course, these issues are extremely complicated and won’t be fixed overnight. However, more communication between the developers and the community could bring light and positivity to the manner, allowing a better understanding of the ongoing issues.

Apex Legends server locations

Apex Legends director of communications, Ryan K. Rigney (@RKRigney on Twitter), revealed that he had been working with the Apex engineers to create a new developer blog concerning, “servers, net code, and tickrate.”

We have seen similar dev blog posts in the past concerning patch notes, future updates, and the most recent video with Jason McCord concerning Apex Legends hackers and cheaters.

This new dev blog is said to be coming out in two weeks and will attempt to acknowledge and explain the “biggest issues” concerning servers, net code, and tick rate, as well as “exploring recent/upcoming improvements.”

Ryan Rigney says he is expecting a mixed reaction, mainly because he knows players want overnight fixes for all Apex Legends server issues – which aren’t possible. The dev blog won’t promise “revolutionary changes immediately,” but it will allow better insight and communication with the community.

Pro Apex Legends player, NRG Rogue, responded to his tweets, essentially stating that it will not satisfy the community of the “14-24-year-old Apex Legends market.”

Just like Rogue, who says he is not “too techy” in understanding such issues, the majority of the community are likely to be similar. The information offered may be overlooked, or not fully understood.

Either way, more communication between the devs and engineers for Apex Legends can hardly be negative, so we look forward to seeing the information provided.

Apex Legends leak reveals EPG from Titanfall 2

Apex Legends leak reveals Respawn’s plans to add another Titanfall weapon into the game, potentially making its arrival next season.

Published

Most of Apex Legends weapons are taken directly from the Titanfall universe and it seems like another one may be on its way.

This season saw Apex Legends add its sixth new weapon into the game called the 30-30 Repeater. Since then, there has been lots of speculation on which weapon we could be seeing next.

The most recent leaked weapons said to be introduced into the game by reliable data miner @Biast12 include the Compound Bow, the Dragon LMG, and the EPG from Titanfall.

The EPG stands for ‘Energy Propelled Grenade’, a futuristic grenade launcher that explodes on hit, causing splash damage.

In Titanfall 2, it fired fairly slowly but dealt quite a lot of damage. The weapon also didn’t have much bullet drop, as you’d usually see with a grenade launcher, allowing you to hit targets from far without adjusting your aim too much.

The weapon one-hit Pilots in Titanfall 2, dealing massive amounts of damage and even being useful against weaker Titans. Although it’s unlikely to be the same in Apex Legends, it could potentially deal supreme amounts of damage.

This is not the first time we have heard about the EPG potentially coming to Apex Legends, as it was teased during a demo for Season 5’s Lost Treasures event.

The EPG would be the first explosive weapon in Apex Legends, making it an obvious choice for the developers to introduce it.

The latest leak also included a picture of the EPG’s potential legendary skin names.

The EPG in Apex Legends will be the second version of the weapon from Titanfall. It will likely receive an upgraded name change that we have also seen for other Titanfall weapons in Apex like the R-97, which was of course renamed the R-99.

For continued news on Apex Legends stay tuned on Charlie Intel and the @TitanfallBlog over on twitter.
