The Pack-A-Punch machine has been a staple in Call of Duty Zombies since almost the very beginning. If you’re unaware of how it works, it’s essentially an upgrade machine. You feed it your current weapon, and it gives you back a much more powerful, upgraded version. It costs 5,000 points to use each time, but it’s more than worth it. Here’s how to unlock the IX Pack A Punch easter egg in IX on Black Ops 4.

  1. In the four corners of the main arena are four temples, each dedicated to four Gods: Ra, Zeus, Danu, and Odin. Each one contains a gong.
  2. Activate the gong in each of the four temples, and a mini-boss will spawn. Kill the mini-boss and pick up the head that it drops.
  3. Go down to the temple beneath the arena and approach the altar. Place the four heads around the altar.
  4. The Pack-A-Punch machine will appear where the altar was.

We recommend getting the Pack A Punch machine as quickly as you can. It’s not too difficult to do, and Pack-A-Punched weapons will keep you going into the much later rounds. It’s also a requirement for the longer tasks and easter eggs in IX, so get it out of the way at the start.

Keep your eyes peeled on the site as we’ll be covering all of the other easter eggs in Black Ops 4 IX very shortly. If you’re playing the Black Ops 4 multiplayer, why not take a look at the full list of Operator Mods?
