Like earlier iterations, the Pack-a-Punch machine has a huge role to play in the completion of the Gorod Krovi Easter Egg in Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 zombies. Therefore, it is a good idea to unlock it as early as possible!
You do not need to build the Pack-a-Punch machine but only need to complete the steps in order to get to it. All these steps involving getting to the machine are comparatively easier than previous iterations and can be done solo.
How to Pack-a-Punch in Gorod Krovi
Keep in mind that each step to reach the Pack-a-Punch machine takes place at a different location. Some of them can be quite hard to cover, but we will explain what to do along the way.
Step #1: Turn on the power
The first thing you need to do is turn on the power for the whole map. Head inside the Dragon Command Center which is located near the large government building with a star outside.
Once inside, make your way to the area with a few green monitors on the walls. There will be a large lever here that you need to pull.
Step #2: Dragon Network Circuits
After activating the power, you will notice that some of the zombies will start dropping Code Cylinders after being killed. There are a total of three Code Cylinders that you need to collect. Each of these Code Cylinders are randomly dropped after killing zombies in their respective areas.
A list of the areas where you need to find these items is as follows:
- Tank Factory Code Cylinder
- Dragon Command Center Code Cylinder
- Supply Depot Code Cylinder
After picking up a Code Cylinder from an area e.g. Tank Factory Code Cylinder, activate a special machine in the same area called Groph Module. You must activate them by inserting the respective Code Cylinder into the Groph Module.
Given below is a list of the Groph Module locations in each area:
- Above the Power Switch in Dragon Command (Blue)
- On the upper floor of Tank Factor (Red)
- Below the Speed Cola in Supply Depot (Yellow)
Every time you activate this machine (x3 Groph Modules for three areas) you will summon a pod nearby which you can locate through a beam in the sky.
The pods that are summoned will need to charge by killing zombies in their vicinity. You do need to be careful here because the zombies will try to destroy the pod.
If you have been playing zombies, you should know the concept by now. After charging it enough, the pod should open, rewarding you with a Dragon Network Circuit. Once you have completed the step in all three locations, you should have all x3 Dragon Network Circuits.
Since you can only carry one Code Cylinder at a time, we recommend collecting them and starting each Groph Module one by one rather than collectively.
Step #3: Ride the Dragon
With all x3 Dragon Network Circuits at your disposal, you need to head over to the Operations Bunker area and find a large machine labeled Dragon Network with three empty slots.
This will be just past the Jug, which itself is located in a small room right above the spawn point. Insert your three Network Circuits into the empty slots of the machine to activate it.
Once you have inserted all the Dragon Network Circuits, you need to head over to the Groph Module in the Dragon Command Room. Interact with the large terminal next to a platform here to summon the dragon.
You need to mount the dragon’s neck from one of the platforms and wait for a cut scene to finish. The dragon will take you to a completely new area that contains the Gorod Krovi Pack-a-Punch machine.
Step #4: Use the Pack-a-Punch
Once you are in the new area, you need to head down and find the Pack-a-Punch machine. In order to use the PaP machine, you will need to spend 2,500 points. In order to exit the area, you need to head over to the sewer exit located nearby and head back to the main area of the map.
