Call Of Duty: WWII Nazi Zombies continues with the recently released chapter, The Darkest Shore. In this guide, we’ll tell you all you need to know about getting and upgrading the Ripsaw Wonder Weapon. You should turn on the power and Pack-A-Punch first, so here’s a guide to get that done.


Unlocking the Ripsaw Wonder Weapon requires two parts: a handle and saw blade. Once you’ve got both, simply go to the bench near the first power location to craft it.

The handle can be found in one of three locations inside the same Artillery Bunker as the second power switch. Look by the record player, bunk beds or on a table near the perk machine to locate your prize. If it’s not in any of those three spots, it’s most likely elsewhere inside the bunker.

To find the saw blade, go to the power station where you placed the Elektroschnalle charges to unlock Pack-A-Punch. You should see a dead soldier lying near the machinery. The blade should be sitting atop the body. Now you can craft the weapon at the table, as long as you’ve got 2,500 jolts. An explosion may occur after you make the Ripsaw.


Use the aim-down-sight button to perform a heavy melee attack. While in that animation, hold down Square, X or F to rip out zombie spines. In order to upgrade the Ripsaw, you need to harvest a glowing spine from a random enemy. A good spot to do this is near the chained soldier by the U-Boats. Keep killing till you get one, then bring it to the crafting table.

Next you must charge the weapon with about 30 zombie souls. Then you can pay 2,500 jolts plus an additional 500 to get the upgraded Ripsaw. It can shoot saw blades, which is necessary for the full Easter egg, and it can still harvest souls using the sprint button.

That’s all you need to know to get the best weapon in The Darkest Shore. The guides we have today will get you started, but stay tuned in the days ahead for a complete Easter egg walkthrough.

Call Of Duty: WWII ’s Resistance DLC is currently exclusive to PS4, but The Darkest Shore should be on Xbox One and PC by early March.

What do you think of The Darkest Shore so far? Is the Ripsaw the best Wonder Weapon yet? Tell us in the comments section!
