The Wunderwaffe DG-2 has been a powerful weapon in several Zombie modes since Call of Duty: World at War and has returned in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. The weapon can be extremely rare to get but not impossible to obtain.

How to Get the Wunderwaffe DG-2 in Modern Warfare 3 Zombies

There are two methods to get the Wunderwaffe DG-2: finding it randomly in the world and crafting it via the Crafting Schematics menu before missions. The first method has a low chance of happening, while the second will require progressing through the story.

The Wonder Weapon can be found as a reward for completing contracts or searching through caches in seemingly any zone. However, it can be scarce and not something to rely on.

The more guaranteed method is to obtain the Wunderwaffe DG-2 Schematics by completing the Act 3 Tier 4 mission Holdout. Here are the requirements for the mission:

  • Complete an Outlast contract.
  • Kill 50 Zombies inside the corrupted space.
  • Exfil with the Wunderwaffe DG-2 Plans

Completing the mission will reward you with the schematics to craft the Wonder Weapon almost anytime. Although, there are a few restrictions.

How to Craft the Wunderwaffe DG-2 in Modern Warfare 3 Zombies

The Wunderwaffe DG-2 can be crafted before missions by selecting the backpack inventory and then the Schematic Crafting menu. Go to the Wonder Weapons tab and select the Wunderwaffe DG-2.

It will be placed in the inventory and needs to be activated in-game to equip it. It is an extraordinary weapon with a 48-hour cooldown before another Wonder Weapon can be crafted.
