Outside of my day job as a project manager for a construction company, I am an avid gamer with a great passion for "Call of Duty."
The D.I.E Nova 5 shoots a ball of poison that will kill zombies that make direct contact and damage zombies caught in its blast zone. Most of the steps for this upgrade are easy, but one will require you to lead a Plaguehound into a corner. Follow the quick steps below or go down to see them explained in detail.
- Turn on Power and Activate the Pack-a-Punch
- Get the D.I.E. Shockwave
- Get the Empty Canister
- Attach the Canister to The Cleaning Unit
- Fill With Gas
- Attach to Box to Open
Note: This is a necessary step for completing the Die Maschine Easter Egg.
Step 1: Turn on Power and Activate the Pack-a-Punch
You will need to save up enough essence to open the doors between the spawn spot and the Power Room. Once there you will need to push the button, activate the Terminals, collect the part, and build the machine. There are on-screen indicators showing the location of the next step. Select this link for a step by step guide on how to turn on the power and activate the Pack-a-Punch machine.
Step 2: Get the D.I.E. Shockwave
In order to get the D.I.E. Shockwave, you will need to complete some basic steps. Kill a Megaton and his two twin split personalities, use the key card to get the remote, and fill up the Shockwave with zombies in order to blast the door open. Select this link for a step by step guide on how to get the D.I.E. Shockwave.
Step 3: Get the Empty Canister
The canister is on the Mezzanine in Nacht Der Untoten. It is on a desk on the other side of a large hole. You can not get close due to the debris in the way. I like to go against the wall to the left and get as close as I can. You will need to use the secondary function of the D.I.E. Shockwave to suck it towards you. It takes a couple of seconds, just hold down the button and wait for it to fly towards you.
Step 4: Attach the Canister to the Cleaning Unit
Take the canister to the ground floor of the Weapons Lab, under the hanging bomb. It is on the other side of the room from the Deadshot Daquiri Machine. Approach the machine and press your activate button. The canister will attach to the bottom. After attaching this, you will have to wait until you have a Plaugehound.
Tip: If you start the steps for building the Aetherscope, then Plaugehounds will appear after picking up each part.
Step 5: Fill With Gas
You will need to use a Plaguehound to fill up this canister. Lead a Plaguehound to the canister and wait for it to get very close, then kill it. The cleaning unit will suck up the poison from the dogs. You can grab the canister after it is full.
Step 6: Attach to Box to Open
The box for the Nova 5 upgrade is in the Crash Site. It is against the Nacht der Untoten wall, between the wall and the broken wing of the crashed plane. Approach the box and press the activate button to attach the canister. After attaching the canister either shoot it or melee it to make it explode. The explosion will break the vines. Then you can open the box and collect the Nova 5 canister.
