Call of Duty WW2 Zombies: How to Upgrade Weapons & High Round Tips

Updated on November 5, 2017

How to Upgrade Weapons on Call of Duty WW2 Zombies: The Final Reich

If you want to make it to a higher round in Call of Duty WW2 Nazi Zombies, then you'll want to upgrade your weapons. Upgrading your weapons makes them deal more damage and it upgrades ammo capacity. Additionally, the rate of fire may improve as well, but that depends on the weapon. The M1 Garand is a World War II rifle that is semi automatic, but upgrading the weapon on the level will make it fire in bursts.

The machine that upgrades your weapons is often referred to as the "Pack-A-Punch." It was featured in the Call of Duty Black Ops Zombie maps.

This article will explain the steps required to locate and unlock the upgrade station on The Final Reich zombie map. Additionally, tips will be provided to make easier to survive into the higher rounds.

Steps Required to Unlock the Weapon Station (Pack-a-Punch)

  1. The power to the bunker must be restored by using two generators.
  2. Turn on the two power switches inside the bunker. It's a timed event.
  3. Press the button near the Pack-a-Punch weapon station.
  4. Go through the three disposal tube holes around the map and press the buttons in the sewers basement.
  5. Make 5000 points and place the weapon of your choice on the Pack-A-Punch weapon station.

Getting Power to the Bunker (1)

In order to access the bunker, you must first use two generators. Ideally, you'll want to save as many jolt points as possible if you want to upgrade weapons in the earlier rounds. It costs 5000 points to upgrade. Make use of the shovel to save ammo during the first few rounds. Zombies are weaker in the beginning and there are fewer of them.

Open the door to the courtyard and locate the small generator. Turn all three valves on to charge the generator. Now you can use the pilot light to open up the sewers nearby. Go into the sewers to find another generator. Turn it on. Accessing the bunker commander center is now possible. The vault will open in the courtyard.

Activate the Two Power Switches in the Bunker (2)

Two switches need to be activated so you can access the sewers basement room (has blood everywhere) where the weapon upgrade station is. Both switches must be activated within a time limit. You'll see two doors in the command center. Go to the morgue and find the switch, then open the door to the laboratory. Activate the switch in the laboratory before the time runs out! You could coordinate with another player to turn both switches on at about the same time (unless you're on solo).

Now you'll be able to access the sewers basement room.

Press the Button in the Sewers Basement Room (3)

There are a couple ways to access the sewers basement room where the Pack-A-Punch machine is. You can go through the morgue (bunker) and move past the corridors. The other way is to open the door outside where the docks are. Once you're inside the sewer basement, you'll see a cage in the middle of the room. That cage is blocking the weapon upgrade station. Press the button near the cage. It activates the disposal tubes.

Go Through the 3 Disposal Tubes (4)

You must go through three disposal tubes to remove the cage from the weapon station. They each cost 250 points to utilize. You'll end up in the sewers basement room when you go through them.

  1. One of the easiest disposal tubes to find is inside the bunker in the commander center. Go up the stairs and you'll spot it. Use 250 points and descend down it. Once you emerge, activate the switch in front of you in the sewers.
  2. To find the other disposal tube, go to the laboratory by going through the commander center. It's past one of the perk machines. Go down the whole and activate the second switch.
  3. The last disposal tube is in a totally different area. Return to the spawn by going past the courtyard outside. Open the back gate & proceed until you see another gate. It is the tower gate. Open it and run past the trucks until you're in another area. The disposal tube is on the left in the corner. Descend down it and turn on the final switch to remove the cage from the weapon upgrade station.

Using the Pack-A-Punch in Call of Duty WW2 Nazi Zombies: The Final Reich (5)

Once the cage is removed in the sewers, you'll be able to upgrade your guns. However, it costs 5000 jolt points to do so. Running around in the sewers is a good way to make points, as you can easily line up large groups of zombies and destroy them. There's an MP40 in the room. You can buy ammo from it when you're low.

After you upgrade a weapon of your choice, you'll be able to return to the Pack-A-Punch to buy enhanced ammo. It will cost 4000 points which is considerably more than normal ammo. However, it's relatively easy to make points in the higher rounds.

If you have the "mule kick" mod equipped before you start a Nazi Zombie game in Call of Duty WW2, you can have three weapons instead of two. Having three upgraded weapons will significantly increase your chances of surviving to higher rounds.

Tips to Reach High Rounds

Armor can protect you from the zombies attacks. There are multiple armor vendors all through the Final Reich map. You can start with armor if you equip it before you start a game in Call of Duty WW2. Just remember that it costs 500 points more every time you purchase it again.

Six perks can be found on the map. One of the perks that can tip the odds in your favor is the one that allows you to sprint infinitely. It's located underground beneath the courtyard where the generator is.

Sprinting can save your life because many zombies on the Final Reich run extremely fast. There are enemies that shoot a flamethrower at you. Infinite sprint will help you escape them. Additionally, using infinite sprint will make it easier to create zombie trains (large groups of zombies that are easy to shoot).

The weapon damage and quick reload perks are also indispensable. You'll lose your perks if you die or stay down too long. However, if you or someone else revives you quickly, you'll keep them. The self revive perk allows you to heal yourself. It can be purchased near the spawn.

Lastly, character abilities in Call of Duty WW2 Nazi Zombies will help you survive to higher rounds. One of the abilities makes all enemies ignore you for a temporary period of time. Using that ability will allow you to revive other players easily because you won't be able to die by the weaker zombies.
