Lightning Staff Code and Upgrade Guide in COD: Black Ops 3 – Zombies Chronicles

Although not overly difficult, the Lightning Staff is a tad time-consuming to upgrade. Thankfully, if you have already built the staff, a good chunk of the process is already done! If you haven’t, though, you’ll have to ride the tank and collect each of the three staff parts before building it in The Crazy Place.

Once you’ve built the staff, follow the steps below to upgrade the Lightning Staff:

  • Throughout the map, you’ll find several electric boxes with dials. Below are descriptions of each electricity box and what direction to turn the dials:

  • After turning each dial, Samantha will interact with you, indicating that you’ve done this first part right!
  • Head into The Crazy Place and find the purple triangles. Focus on the bottom row of triangles since you’ll have to shoot them!
  • Starting from the leftmost triangle to the right, shoot the triangles in the following order – 1, 3, 63, 5, 72, 4, 6. Be sure to divide them up into three separate sequences, taking short breaks in between.

  • Use the Lightning Staff to shoot each purple ball on the rings
  • Head back to The Crazy Place and use the Lightning Staff on the purple pedestal.
  • Kill zombies to feed the staff! After getting a few dozen kills, the staff will successfully upgrade.
