Blacks Ops 2 Zombies Wonder Weapons Guide

We prepared a list of all the Wonder Weapons you can use in Black Ops 2 Zombies mode to make sure the hordes of undead stay dead

Zombies in Black Ops 2 test your strength at various levels. Initially, it looks like a walk in the park as you can even take them out merely using your knife however that soon changes until you need something truly special to kill them. This is where Black Ops 2 Zombies Wonder Weapons come into play.

Blacks Ops 2 Zombies Wonder Weapons

The Pack-a-Punch machine will let you upgrade weapons rendering you some useful changes like special ammo or may have new attachments. They call these the wonder weapons as the upgrades will be of great help, especially at the higher levels.

After you have upgraded a weapon using Pack-a-Punch machine, you can replenish its ammo in two ways. If you have taken the gun from a wall, you can buy the (4500 Points) ammo directly from there or the ammo power up can refill it for you. For the magic box weapons, you will have to rely on the power-up only to replenish the ammo.

Now that you know what is a wonder weapon and how it can be helpful, let’s be more specific about them and see what upgrades can be done by using what weapon and their concerned effects.

Note: You can also get some wonder weapons from the Magic Box directly (like the Ray Gun) which are not needed to be upgraded. So keep looking for them too.
