Season 2 of Call of Duty: Warzone is live, returning the popular Fortune’s Keep map to the battle royale. In addition to some minor map changes, there’s also a new Easter egg and a few new features that give you a chance to get your hands on the Ray Gun from Zombies mode.
How to get the Ray Gun on Fortune’s Keep
Season 2 is themed around Zombies and The Walking Dead, so this was great timing for the developer to add in the most iconic Wonder Weapon from Call of Duty’s Zombies. There are a few different ways you can try to get your hands on the Ray Gun, but not these are not going to be guaranteed.
One of the new contract types for the season is the limited-time Eradication contract. This isn’t a difficult contract, but it’s also not guaranteed to reward you with a Ray Gun for completion. If you have an Eradication contract near you, grab it and follow the prompts.
It requires you to follow highlighted footprints to a corpse, and then mark an infested stronghold for you to clear. This works just similar to Zombies mode. Shoot the glowing cysts, a marked HVT armored zombie will spawn after, and killing it will complete the contract and drop rewards.
This is still a good contract for loot, even if the HVT doesn’t drop a Ray Gun. You usually get rewards like a durable gas mask, killstreaks, cash, or armor. It’s also possible this could drop the The Wunderwaffe DG-2 Wonder Weapon from Zombies.
Rogue Signal public event
Season 2’s new Rogue Signal public event can randomly happen once during your match. This will give all teams the same objective. It’s usually a challenge to get the most kills, deal the most damage, or collect the most cash. All teams have 90 seconds to participate, and if you can perform in the top three, you’ll get rewarded with cash and a marked loot cache.
These usually contain a Wonder Weapon, but this doesn’t seem to be a guarantee either. Your chances do seem higher with the Rogue Signal event than the Eradication event.
Complete an Easter egg
Lastly, another fun way to try and score a Ray Gun is to complete an Easter egg in the underground labs.
Head down into the underground tunnels of Ground Zero. There’s more than one entrance, but the easiest path is to use the tunnel entrance at the Graveyard POI. Drop down into the tunnels, and this should lead you into a secret laboratory, and you’ll see a wall marked as B1.
Drop down into the nearby elevator shafts here. Take the path to the right, and you’ll reach a dark area with another B on the wall. Here there is a red light and a small gap you can squeeze through. This puts you to a level with a puzzle room.
The puzzle is a flooded room with electricity, so obviously you want to mantle on top of the crates and pipes, using the environment to stay above water and hit three switches. The switches are flashing red, so they aren’t difficult to spot. Mantle around and hit all three switches to turn off the power, giving you access to a room of loot. If the lights are already green and not flashing red, someone else has beaten you to the puzzle, but you might be able to fight them for the loot.
Once the water is no longer electrified, head back the way you came. The flooded portion closest to the door will have an underground area you can swim through to reach a room of loot. This usually has plenty of cash, weapons, and high-tier supply boxes. It also seems to have a high chance at offering a Ray Gun.
While none of these are guaranteed, they are all really fun ways to get geared up with good loot in Fortune’s Keep.
It’s worth noting that the Ray Gun can’t be resupplied with ammo. Wonder Weapons are loaded with 20 shots, and likely because they are so powerful with only one or two shots needed to knock your opponent.
