Black Ops Cold War Zombies has another very complex Easter egg to discover as players enter Firebase Z.
Firebase Z is the latest Call of Duty Zombies map to launch, and it’s probably one of the best. The Vietnam setting has two locations, a new mechanic and an incredible new Wonder Weapon to test.
But the Firebase Z Zombies map also comes with complex new Easter eggs to discover. If you want to complete everything that the map has to offer, you need to follow the guidelines to make sure you don’t miss a step.

How to Build a Magic Weapon (RAI K-84) in Firebase Z
It looks like Firebase Z has a side Easter egg where players can build new Cold War Magic Weapons. However, you can already get the Firebase Z Wonder Weapon in a number of other ways.
However, to build it for a guaranteed Easter egg drop, you need to follow these guidelines:
To get started, make sure you’ve turned on the power in Firebase Z. This isn’t really necessary, but this will make things easier in the long run.
At the very least, go to Firebase Z, and complete the Aether Reactor Data Center
Then, open the door pictured above, and you will find the Action Plan on the workbench on the left.
Get the Blueprint, and head to the Mission Control room.
Stabilize the Aether Reactor, if you haven’t already, and go outside to the Scorched Defense area.
Here, you will find the body of Dimitri Kuhlklay on the edge of the tank wreckage.
Go towards the dead soldier and catch his eye, in a very gruesome animation.
Next, we returned to the Weapons Lab, where there was a computer displaying the message: “PROVE YOU ARE ME.”
Interact with him to scan Dimitri’s eyeballs and unlock a nearby drawer.
Take the Locker Key from the drawer.
Now, go to the Firebase Z Barracks area.
Inside the Barracks, use your new Locker Lock to open the locker until the Mimic appears. You can also pick up various Intel pieces from inside this locker, while you’re here.
If the Mimic doesn’t lay eggs, go to another Barak and try there until it appears.
Kill the Mimic and it will drop the Barrel Assembly, for your next Wonder Weapon. Get it and then we’re almost there.
Go back to the computer in the Weapons Lab and interact with it. You will see the radar rotate to a random location in a circle.
Memorize the position and move to the Village Mess Hall. Here, you will record a Dartboard in the same spot as the radar spotlight, and then record a bullseye.
The secret compartment will open, allowing you to get another piece of the Magic Weapon.
For the next level, you have to wait until Mangler’s special enemy appears. This is usually around Round 15 or so.
Once you kill these enemies, they will drop the last piece of the puzzle, the Uncharged Power Cell.
Use the computer back in the Weapons Lab to charge your Power Cell. This will take some time, so survive for a round or more without dying.
Finally, take the Charged Power Cell, and bring it to the Craft Desk under where you took the Blueprint, in this same room.
And voila! You have all the parts for the RAI K-84 Wonder Weapon in Firebase Z.
Just gather them together for the most powerful weapon in the game.
Firebase Z Key Quest Easter Egg Guide – Part 1
To get started, you need to talk to Ravenov while spawning, turn on the Firebase Z power generator and then talk to Doctor Peck in Mission Control.
Go back to spawn and talk to Ravenov again. He will give you a key card item.
Use the key cards to unlock three different lockers around the map and take serum from each one. The location of the locker is inside
Equipment Storage, Colonel’s Officeand engineering. After collecting the serum, go to Field Hospital and interact with
chemical mixer. Remove the laying hell dogs and then interact with the chemical mixer again. The mixer will give you
agent delivery system. After assembling the agent delivery system, go to the OPC area and place the system on top
aircond. Go back to Doctor Peck and you should have noticed he was dancing, talking to him.
Once Peck stops dancing, go to the data center and grab one

The next step is the hardest part of the Firebase Z Easter egg guide. You have to find it
imitate and bring them to a very low level of health. Once they are at a low level of health, use the essence trap to catch them.
However, be aware that if the imitators are not in low health, they will run away.
After capturing the mimicry, bring it to
that machine where you grab the essence trap and activate it. Next, you should hear from a requiem agent who will tell you whether you are successful or not. You have to repeat the mimic capture process several times until you get three pieces of information from the agent.
You have to get
Maxis tracker IDand two different activation codes from the agent. After you have the information the machine will spit a
floppy disktake this to the planning office, and enter it into the computer. Next head to the OPC dome and an anomaly will appear in the middle of the room.
Get down to mission control and talk to Doctor Peck again. He has to close his window shutters on you.
Ravenov will then give you a code that you can use to unlock
Another locker next to Doctor Peck’s window. Take the Aethermeter from the locker and then take it

For this next step, you need to have
RAIK-84 Wonder Weapon, our guide above will teach you how to get it. Three crystal canisters will now spawn around the map, you need to collect them and put them into a nearby generator. However, there are different puzzles for each crystal canister location.
The first crystal canisters are available at
open lot right in the corner under the window. It will produce a lot of fake duplicate crystals around the area. The actual canister will not contain any animated black smoke, but picking up the wrong container will pose a boss zombie, so be careful.
Bring the crystal container back to mission control and place it inside
Aether reactor. The next crystal container can be excavated on the left side of the stairs leading to the data center at a corner near the field hospital. You should get a prompt to dig up the crystal.
This crystal canister puzzle is quite different, you have to keep your distance from the canister or it will move. Once you get a clear shot with the RAIK-84, use the spare fire mode to freeze the canister in place.
Now quickly move up and collect the canister while it freezes in place.
Take the crystal canister back to the Aether Reactor and insert the second crystal.
The third and last crystal canisters can be dug in
Forest Defense. You have to stay inside the zone and survive to solve the last crystal puzzle. After this, bring the crystal back to the Aether Reactor again and insert the canister.

Now you have to go back to the OPC Dome to watch the anomaly disappear.
Go to the planning office next door and interact with
black screen computer. There are small puzzles that involve moving the cursor using the D-Pad. search for satellite dishes with “?” attached to it and select it. Remember this will prevent players from earning points so make sure you are prepared to face the last boss.
Take a look at the satellite dish and you should have witnessed a giant laser hit it. Return to the OPC and interact with the terminal on the right.
After you do this, you are ready to face the Firebase Z ‘Order’ boss fight.
Take it out
The final boss be careful to avoid the one-shot killing motion and you will successfully complete the main quest of Firebase Z and the easter egg, well done you!
