Kain writes video game articles that include tips, tricks, and tutorials. He is especially enthusiastic about the "Call of Duty" series.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 has four zombie levels. The maps are Voyage of Despair, IX, Blood of the Dead, and Classified. Each map has a special weapon that is known as the Wonder Weapon. While you can get most weapons from either the mystery box or the walls, certain Wonder Weapons can only be obtained from specific maps. For example, the Blundergat shotgun is exclusive to Blood of the Dead.

Unfortunately, you cannot play the Classified map on Black Ops 4 Zombies unless you have the season pass. It's a shame that Treyarch made the Classified map exclusive to season pass holders. Classified is a remake of the Five map from the original Black Ops video game.

This article will provide a list of weapons that you can acquire on the Black Ops 4 Zombie Levels. Some weapons are purchased from the mystery box, created with parts, bought from a wall, or obtained by completing objectives.

The list below may be a bit subjective, but some weapons are indisputably stronger in regards to damage output. Additionally, some weapons are capable of destroying multiple zombies simultaneously or they carry significantly more ammo.


Best Pack-a-Punched Weapons to Use on Black Ops 4 Zombies


The HADES is a fully automatic light machine gun with a high rate of fire. It can be obtained randomly by using the mystery box on a zombie level. When Pack-a-Punched, the HADES will have 120 bullets before needing to be reloaded. It's relatively powerful and great for taking out large hordes of zombies. Unfortunately, your mobility is limited and the reload speed is not that great. There is no Speed Cola on Black Ops 4 to make the reload faster.


The M1897 is a pump-action shotgun. It's mediocre normally, but when Pack-a-Punched, it becomes something completely different. It will shoot grenades out of the barrel, blowing up a single zombie or large groups! The weapon is a double-edged sword, as it can destroy many zombies at once, but you can damage your health from the explosive blasts it shoots. As far as I know, the PHD Slider perk won't make you resistant to explosive damage unless Treyarch updates it.

The M1897 is good for clearing a path in front of you or defeating large groups of enemies. Just make sure you're not too close to the explosive blasts. The shotgun is probably best on the IX map. Using the weapon on Blood of the Dead or Voyage of Despair may be difficult in small, claustrophobic areas.



When you're playing the Black Ops 4 IX map, you can complete a series of objectives to obtain a Wonder Weapon called the Death of Orion. It is currently exclusive to IX. The unique weapon is a scorpion that can paralyze entire groups of zombies when the shots are charged up.

Additionally, the Death of Orion can suspend the gladiator enemies in the air, making them vulnerable to your attacks. The weapon is powerful and effective, but uses a lot of ammo when the shots are charged.


If you're looking for a weapon that has a ton of ammo and firepower, then you'll want to get the ZWEIHANDER out of the mystery box. It carries 300 rounds of ammunition in a single magazine when Pack-a-Punched! The weapon has a low rate of fire, but it will save you ammo. You can make a ton of points by disposing of zombies quickly.

Because the ZWEIHANDER is a light machine gun that is normally mounted on airplanes, it has a slow reload. Additionally, your mobility is limited when carrying and shooting the weapon.

The power of the ZWEIHANDER can be strengthened when using the Stone Cold Stronghold perk. The Bandolier Bandit perk will give the weapon a total of 1200 rounds!


A great wall weapon that you can purchase on Black Ops 4 Zombies is the KN-S5. It can also be acquired from the mystery box if you're lucky. The weapon is reminiscent of an AK-47. It has a good rate of fire and reload speed. You'll have excellent mobility.

When Pack-a-Punched, the weapon will make short work of zombies, particularly when utilizing the Deadshot Deadler perk. Deadshot Dealer makes your weapon lock onto zombie heads.

You might want to upgrade the KN-S5 until you get the Brain Rot modification, as some of the bullets fired will make zombies attack each other.


Blundergat (upgraded)

The Blundergat is a weapon exclusive to Black Ops 4 Blood of the Dead. By itself, the weapon is not very good because it's simply a break action shotgun. However, when it's turned into the Acid Gat and Pack-a-Punched, it becomes the Vitrolic Withering, a powerful weapon that shoots projectiles that can attract zombies to an extent. Alternatively, you can upgrade the Blundergat to the Magmagat by completing a small Easter egg objective.

Both the Vitrolic Withering and Magmagat are effective for annihilating zombies, but the weapon can damage you. It also has a relatively slow rate of fire. It's most effective when firing at large hordes of enemies, otherwise, you'll waste ammo.

MOG 12

Unlike the M1897, the MOG 12 will not damage you when Pack-a-Punched. It's a shotgun that deals massive damage at close range. The rate of fire and reload speed are not the greatest, but the damage makes up for it a bit.

The MOG 12 is best used for clearing out zombies that are blocking your path. You won't be able to destroy entire hordes that quickly compared to other Pack-a-Punched weapons.


A powerful sniper rifle can be obtained out of the mystery box. The weapon is called the SDM. It's semi-automatic and deals high damage. The sniper rifle is capable of eliminating multiple zombies in a single shot.

The scope of the SDM may seem annoying at first, but you can unlock additional attachments. The Pack-a-Punched SDM has more ammo and damage output.


The Kracken

A Wonder Weapon can be obtained from the mystery box on the Voyage of Despair map. It's called the Kracken. The weapon is a canon that obliterates zombies immediately. It's a great weapon for using on high rounds.

The Kracken deals monumental damage when Pack-a-Punched. Additionally, it's possible to make it deal elemental damage. If you don't want to use the mystery box on Voyage of Despair, the Kracken can be acquired by completing objectives.


The ICR-7 is a relatively powerful assault rifle when Pack-a-Punched. It's a wall weapon that can alternatively be acquired by utilizing the mystery box. The rate of fire and reload speed is great.

Fortunately, the attachments for the ICR-7 can be unlocked early, making it better to use more often compared to other assault rifles on Black Ops 4.

Make sure to use the Deadshot Dealer perk and the Brain Rot modification to make the ICR-7 more effective.
