Throughout the Call of Duty series, there have been special weapons collectively identified as “Wonder Weapons.” Wonder Weapons, in a nutshell, are any weapons that can’t be considered normal weapons. Some of them are retro sci-fi steampunk styled, some are bizarre improvised weapons, and some are just full-on magic wands. It’s not exactly true to life, but when you’re playing in Zombies mode, that doesn’t matter as much. Here’s how to get the Wonder Weapons in Call of Duty Vanguard Zombies Season 2.

With the beginning of Season 2 of Call of Duty Vanguard Zombies, two Wonder Weapons have been added to the game: the classic laser-launching Ray Gun, and the Decimator Shield, which responds to frontal attacks with explosive rebuttals. Getting these weapons requires luck in the Ray Gun’s case, and perseverance in the Decimator Shield’s case.

How to Get the Ray Gun

Starting with the Ray Gun, unfortunately, the only way to obtain it is by chance. The Ray Gun can be obtained as a loot drop, either from killing elite enemies or smashing crystals. Additionally, there’s a chance a Ray Gun may drop from a Mystery Box. Dump some points in, and if luck shines on you, it’ll spit out a Ray Gun.

To obtain the Decimator Shield, you’ll need to complete a special quest chain in Terra Maledicta, a new map added to Zombies with season 2. You can find the Decimator Shield in Merchant Road, but to actually get it, you’ll need to finish the request first.

At the green Demonic Frenzy fountain, look in the rear of the area to find an interactable rune. This will open a blue portal, within which is a Purge objective. You’ll need to find four big, yellow crystals in the main hub area and blast them all.

With the crystals smashed, find another rune on the ground floor of the Bazaar. Enter the resulting green portal and complete the Sacrifice objective. 

With these two objectives cleared, you can now return to Merchant Road and claim the Decimator Shield. Once you claim the shield for the first time, it’ll also start appearing in Mystery Boxes.
