Everything you need to know about Mauer Der Toten's new Wonder Weapon

Jump To

Mauer Der Toten is out now and that means there's a new Wonder Weapon to get your hands on. The CRBR-S is great in a pinch and a vital part of the Easter Egg. Here's everything you need to know about how you can get one.

LATEST - Does It Live Up To The Hype?

To give an overly complicated answer: yes and no. The CRBR-S is a fantastic bit of kit and it offers a decent-enough variety to keep gameplay semi-interesting at the higher rounds. However, much like the R.A.I. K-84, the new Mauer Der Toten Wonder Weapon just feels like another Pack-a-Punched weapon. It doesn't stand out from the crown and you don't feel like you're using some incredible piece of technology.

The Ray-Gun and Wunderwaffe, two of the first Wonder Weapons, are perfect examples of what a Wonder Weapon should be. They're different from the norm and they feel that way. Die Maschine's D.I.E. Machine was a fantastic example of this and it felt like Treyarch was bringing back the "classic Wonder Weapon", one that might not be too viable but was a lot of fun. However, it looks like that might be lost. Thankfully, the Ray-Gun is still in Black Ops Cold War's Zombies...


How To Unlock A Free CRBR-S

The Mystery Box is always an option in these situations, but going after a specific weapon can cost you a lot of Points if you're unlucky. Thankfully, there is a way you can get your hands on the new Mauer Der Toten Wonder Weapon for free. There's only one, so you'll have to fight amongst your squad for the honour...

Here's everything you need to know, below. It's worth noting that the Safe Combination numbers in Step Four spawn randomly in the rooms mentioned. You'll also need to turn the Power Switch on and activate Pack-A-Punch before all of this.

Step One: Rebuild Klaus & Get Klaus' Control Radio.

Step Two: Use Control Radio to signal Klaus and move him into the Switch Control Room, near the Train Tracks.

Step Three: Use Control Radio to signal Klaus to open Locker #0 and retrieve the Blacklight Flashlight from within.

Step Four: Use the Blacklight Flashlight to find the hidden Safe Combination around Mauer Der Toten. The relevant rooms are labelled with a 1, 2, or 3 circled on the wall.

Step Four (a): The first Safe Combination number is in the Garment Factory.

  • Spawn Locations That We Know:
    • By the interior stairs; knee height
    • On the blackboard, head height

Step Four (b): The second Safe Combination number is in the Service Passage under the East Berlin Streets

  • Spawn Locations That We Know:
    • Eastern wall, head height
    • Southern wall, head height

Step Four (c): The third Safe Combination number is in Bauers Laden, the Grocery Store.

  • Spawn Locations That We Know:
    • On the wall in the opposite corner to the main door, over head height

Step Five: Find the Safe in Hotel Room 305 and input the code.

AS EASY AS ONE, TWO... All you need to do is crack the Safe open and she's yours!

Once you do this, all you need to step back and the Safe should open up to reveal the CRBR-S for you! The Mauer Der Toten Wonder Weapon is fantastic and it's well worth getting this done as soon as you can.

If this doesn't work for you, check the Safe Combination again. It can be a bit tricky to get the numbers right. Treyarch needs to make it somewhat difficult, right?

How Can You Unlock The New Wonder Weapon?

At the moment, there are three ways you can unlock the new Wonder Weapon in Mauer Der Toten.

  • Found in the Mystery Box
    • This is a "luck of the draw" method that can cost a lot of points.
  • Awarded after completing the relevant steps in the Main Quest
    • Detailed in the section above.
  • Proving yourself at the Trails machine
    • Earning a Legendary Reward at the Trails Machine should grant you "A" Wonder Weapon. The CRBR-S isn't guaranteed.

Following this, there's actually going to be three additional Attachments for the CRBR-S that will change the way it fires. Once you have the basic CRBR-S, you can find these by simply killing enemies. Every enemy killed with the new Wonder Weapon has the chance to drop one of these additional improvements.

We'll make sure to keep you updated with any other methods of how you can unlock the new Wonder Weapon when more information becomes available.
