How to Build the Acid Gat Kit in Alcatraz, Mob of the Dead ("Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, Zombies")

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 Acid Gat Kit allows you to upgrade the Blundergat, transforming it into the Acid Gat, which is the Wonder Weapon for Alcatraz, Mob of the Dead. This weapon not only causes mayhem by exploding, it also attracts zombies pulling them off you and into range of the acid bath. There are three parts needed for building this kit. Each part has three possible locations.

Steps for Building the Acid Gat Kit:

  • Collect the parts
  • Build the kit
  • Put a Blundergat in the kit
  • Pick up your improved weapon

Acid Gat Kit Parts:

  • Motor
  • Case
  • Bottle of Acid

First I will explain each possible part location. There is a picture for each location with a green arrow pointing towards the part. Then I will identify the the three building stations. Next I will describe how to build the Acid Gat Kit. Finally I will go through the steps necessary to upgrade your Blundergat.

The Motor

There are three possible locations for the Motor that you will need in order to build the Acid Gat Kit. All three possible locations are in the Wardens Office.

Location 1

The first possible location for the motor can be found as soon as you enter the Wardens Office. As you pass the Fan Trap look to the far right hand corner of the room. It is between a window and the electrified door that blocks a plane part.

Location 2

If it is not in the first location, then it could possible be in attached room that is across from the electrified door. If it is here it will be on the floor in a corner next to the box. If you were standing in front of and facing the box, the part will be in the corner to the left.

Location 3

If it is not in either of the first two locations then it will have to be in the next room. Enter the room that has Speed Cola and look to your right. It should be in the corner lying on the floor next to the boarded up fireplace.

The Case

Like the motor, there are three possible locations for the case. It looks like a metallic briefcase. It can be found in one of several Cell Blocks.

Location 1

The first possible location for the case can be found in the hallway that leads to the Warden's Office. After leaving the Wardens Office you will see a set of steps that leads to the center of the Cell blocks. The case could be under those steps on the floor.

Location 2

If it is not in that location it could be in the Cell Blocks outside of the Cafeteria. This is also a possible location of the Warden's Key. If it is here it would be on the floor in a corner directly across from the entrance to the Showers.

Location 3

The last possible location is outside the Library. It can be found sitting on a table in front of a cell.

The Acid Bottle

The Acid Bottle also has three possible locations. Each location is in the Infirmary.

Location 1

The first possible location is on the floor in the room that has two bath tubs. It is directly across from one of the bottles that turn on the song in Alcatraz.

Location 2

If it is not in that location you can look in the next room. It is sitting on a table next to the single bathtub. The bath tub in this room is used in a step for the Golden Spork.

Location 3

If it is not in either of these locations then you can find it in the tiled hallway that resembles a bathroom entry. This is the room that has the portal that is used to open the roof. It is sitting in a corner on a table.

The Building Stations

There are three Building Stations throughout the map. This stations are easy to spot as they are a workbench with a blueprint hanging behind them. The Acid Gat Kit can be built in any of the three Building Stations. I normally build the kit in the Cell Blocks since I prefer to build the Zombie Shield in the Cafeteria.

The Docks

Building Station on the Docks is in the same area as the wolf head. It is below the walkway that leads to Jugger-Nog. I rarely use this building station due to the location.

The Cafeteria

The Building Station in the Cafeteria is against the far wall next to a window. This window is used in a step for getting the Golden Spork. This is where I normally build the Zombie Shield. I run a train in this room, so it allows me to pick up a new shield quickly.

The Cell Blocks

There is a Building Station on the top level of the Cell Blocks. It is located between the Infirmary and the walkway that leads to the Gondola. Find it behind Explosive Cheery. I normally build the Acid Gat here, since I will only need to use it once.

Build the Acid Gat Kit

The first step is to collect the parts. In order to pick up a part, approach it and press the action button. An indicator should appear on your screen when the part is in range.

Unlike in Tranzit and Die Rise, you must pick up all of the parts before you can start to build the Kit. All players in the game will have access to the part as soon as one player picks it up. You can also carry multiple parts for both the Zombie Shield and the Acid Gat Kit.

The next step is to build the kit. Select the Building Station you would like to choose and stand close to it. Press and hold your action button. A indicator should appear showing a progress bar and stating that you are building the kit.

Upgrade the Blundergat

Now that you have built the kit, any player in the game will have the ability to upgrade their Blundergat. This will refill the ammo in your weapon along with turning that ammo into explosive acid projectiles.

Steps for Upgrading the Blundergat:

  1. Obtain the Blundergat. You can get it from the box, or collect the five Crystal Skulls.
  2. Stand close to the station in which you built your kit. Then press your action button. The Blundergat will go into the Acid Gat Kit.
  3. Wait until it is finished.
  4. Stand close to the station and press your action button. You will take your Acid Gat from the kit.

What You Need to Know

  • Only one player can get the Blundergat from the box
  • A second player can get the Blundergat by collecting the five Crystal Skulls.
  • Both players can upgrade their weapons in the same kit.
  • The Acid Gat is needed for getting the Golden Spork.
  • You will get an Achievement when you pick up the Acid Gat.
