Call of Duty: WWII Nazi Zombies Guide – How to create the Tesla Gun

Call of Duty: WWII’s Nazi Zombies mode is one of the best things in the game. It’s tense and gets exponentially harder the longer you play.

It’s also pretty obtuse and solving its puzzles and actually making any progress can be tough. Luckily, PowerUp! is here to set you on the right path and walk you through some of the steps.


How to create the Tesla Gun

Once you’ve turned on the power and gained access to the bunker (for 1,250 jolts) you’ll need to start working on constructing the Telsa Gun. Doing so is going to require plenty of steps and a lot of killing. Let’s get into it.

Open the hatch and the gates.

Once you’re down in the bunker, you’ll find a strange pyramid-shaped object in the centre. On one side is a crank handle. Approach it and hold down Square or X until it’s finished winding. The pyramid will have opened and created a hole in the floor. You’ll need this hole for later.

Right next to the pyramid is a door to the Salt Mine. You won’t be able to open it though as there’s, once again, no power. On either side of the bunker are two doors. Each of these doors costs 1,500 jolts to open. You’ll need to open both to turn on the power and gain access to the Salt Mine.

Turn on the power

Through both doors, you’ll find power stations like the one in the image above. The switch on the left-hand side (into the Morgue) is located in the office area. When you go through the gate, go down the stairs and take a right-hand turn. Go through the door and you’ll see a corpse stuck on the wall.

Go through the door opposite the one you entered and you should see the switch on the wall in front of you.

Once you activate the switch, you’ll need to hurry and turn on the other one otherwise the system resets and you’ll have to start all over again. Go back to the bunker and head through the door on the right. Go down the stairs and go all the way to the end of the corridor, towards the Blitz machine. Take a left turn here and hug the wall on the right-hand side.

Go up the stairs and make a left-hand turn. Go through the door and you should see some boxes to your right. The switch is next to those boxes. Turn it on and you should have restored power.

Now you can get into the salt mine.

Activate the Artefact

After the power has been turned on, go back to the bunker and open up the salt mine door. It’ll cost you 1,500 jolts to do so. Once open, beware of the Bomber Zombies coming up the slope towards you.

Go down the slope and stick to the right-hand path. You should go through a door and enter a large chamber with three statues in the centre, surrounding a fourth, larger statue. Approach the central statue and hold Square or X when prompted to do so. This will activate the artefact.

Zombies will begin pouring into the room and you’ll notice a glowing circle on the floor. Make sure you kill the Zombies within this circle as it charges up the artefact. Once it’s sufficiently charged, it will raise upwards and head towards the bunker. With the pyramid opened from before, the artefact will lock into place at the Command Centre that overlooks the bunker.

Activate the remaining two pieces of the Tesla Gun

Once the artefact is locked into place, you’ll need to head up the stairs at the back of the bunker to activate the command centre. This will slowly move the artefact along a rail in the ceiling towards the left or right. The glowing circle will again appear and you’ll need to kill Zombies within it to keep the artefact moving.

Once it reaches the end of the track, you’ll need to kill Zombies until the machine on either side spins and powers up. When it’s complete, you can take the Tesla Gun part and repeat the process on the opposite side.

Nw that you have all three parts of the Telsa Gun, it’s time to put it together.

Construct the Telsa Gun.

Go back to the bunker and upstairs to the Command Centre. Approach the weapons table in the centre of the room and hold down Square or X to create the Tesla Gun.

This powerful energy weapon freezes and knocks Zombies back before exploding them when hit with another shot. You won’t be able to find any ammo for it though, so you’ll need to rely on ammo pick ups and Pest waves.
