How to Upgrade the Staff of Lightning in Origins - Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, Zombies
The Staff of Lightning was considered one of the more useful staves. But like the others, it would lose its effectiveness by round 20. However, upgrading this staff will transform it into Kimat's Bite. This upgraded staff will not only double in ammo and magazine size, but it will also become much more powerful. It also gains the ability to be charged, which allows it to discharge a ball of lighting that electrocutes enemies in the area for ten seconds.
There are a total of seven steps needed to upgrade this weapon. This guide covers steps three and four, since the other steps are the same for each staff. You can read the details of the other steps in the Guide for Upgrading the Staves in Origins.

Playing the Crazy Place Piano
Before you start this step you need to build all four staves and equip the Staff of Lightning.
This step takes place in the Crazy Place, which is the room where the crystals were located. You can get there by creating a portal in one of the element mines. Once inside look for the color purple to find the Lightning Area. There will be some symbols on the wall which are actually sheet music and some purple triangles.
The triangles form a piano. Every time I have upgraded the Staff of Lightning the musical notes were the same. So instead of going into a complicated explanation of the notes, I will instead give you the order. To make this easy, the picture below assigns a number to the keys, none of the upper keys are used.
In order to complete this step shoot the keys with the Staff of Lightning in this order: 6,1,3,3,5,7,4,6, and 2.
If the notes change at any time I will update this guide to include the explanation of how to decode the pattern.
Tune The Electrical Machines
There are several electrical machines located in various areas of the map. These machines have dials that can be turned by pressing your action button. Normally, they just sit on the map and have no function. However, when you complete the last step one of the dials will begin to spark.
To complete the step you need to find the machine that is sparking and turn the dial by pressing your action button. continue to do this until it stops sparking. Then find the next machine and turn that dial until it stops sparking. Keep doing this until Samantha talks to you.
The machines have been in the same order every time I upgraded the Staff of Lightning. The pictures below show the location and order of the machines.
The Next Step
After you complete these steps you can skip to Step 5 in the Guide for Upgrading the Staves in Origins. The last three steps are the same for all of the staves.
