How to Build the Wonder Weapon (R.A.I. K-84) in Firebase Z

It seems that Firebase Z has a side Easter egg where players can build the new Cold War Wonder Weapon. However, you can already get the Firebase Z Wonder Weapon in several other ways.

However, to build it for a guaranteed Easter egg drop, you’ll need to follow this guide:

  • To get started, make sure you’ve turned on the power in Firebase Z. This isn’t strictly necessary, but it’ll make things easier in the long run.
  • At the very least, head to Firebase Z, and complete the Data Center Aether Reactor

  • Then, open the door pictured above, and you’ll find a Blueprint on the workbench to the left.

  • Grab the Blueprint, and head towards the Mission Control room.
  • Stabilize the Aether Reactor, if you haven’t done it already, and head outside to the Scorched Defense area.
  • Here, you will find the body of Dimitri Kuhlklay by the wreckage of a tank.

  • Head up to the deceased soldier and retrieve his eye, in a perfectly gruesome animation.

  • Next, we’re heading back to the Weapon Lab, where there’s a computer displaying the message: “PROVE YOU ARE ME.”
  • Interact with it to scan Dimitri’s eyeball and unlock a nearby drawer.

  • Grab the Locker Key from the drawer.
  • Now, head to the Firebase Z Barracks area.

  • Inside the Barracks, use your new Locker Key to open the lockers until a Mimic spawns. You can also grab various pieces of Intel from inside these lockers, while you’re here.
  • If the Mimic does not spawn, head to the other Barracks and try there until it does.

  • Kill the Mimic and it will drop a Barrel Assembly, for your upcoming Wonder Weapon. Grab it and then we’re almost there.

  • Head back to the computer in the Weapon Lab and interact with it. You’ll see a radar spinning to a random location in a circle.
  • Memorise the positions and move to the Village Mess Hall. Here, you’re going to shoot the Dart Board in the same place as the radar highlight, and then shoot the bullseye.
  • A secret compartment will open up, allowing you to get yet another piece of the Wonder Weapon.

  • For the next stage, you’ll need to wait until a Mangler special enemy spawns. This is usually at around Round 15 or so.

  • Once you kill this enemy, they will drop the final piece of the puzzle, an Uncharged Power Cell.
Firebase Z Easter Egg Guide
  • Use the computer back in the Weapon Lab to charge your Power Cell. This will take a while, so survive for a round or so without dying.
  • Finally, grab the Charged Power Cell, and take it to the Crafting Table beneath where you picked up the Blueprint, in this same room.

And voila! You have all the parts for the R.A.I. K-84 Wonder Weapon in Firebase Z.

Simply assemble them together for the most powerful weapon in the game.

  1. The next step is the hardest part of Firebase Z’s easter egg guide. You’ll need to find mimics and bring them down to extremely low health. 
  2. Once they are at low health, deploy the essence traps to capture them.
  3. However, be aware that if the mimics are not at low health, they will escape.
  4. After capturing a mimic, take it to the machine where you grabbed the essence trap and activate it.
  5. Next, you should hear from a requiem agent who will tell you if you are successful or not. You will need to repeat the mimic capturing process multiple times until you get three pieces of information from the agent.
  6. You will need to get Maxis’s tracker ID, and two different activation codes from the agent.
  7. After you have the information the machine will spit out a floppy disk, take this to the planning offices, and put it into the computer.
  8. Next head into the OPC dome and an anomaly should spawn in the middle of the room.
  9. Head down to mission control and speak to Doctor Peck once more. He should close his window shutters on you.
  10. Ravenov will then give you a code that you can use to open another locker next to Doctor Peck’s window.
  11. Grab the Aethermeter from the locker and then grab the shovel from the scorched defense area.

  2. Three crystal canisters will now spawn around the map, you need to collect them and place them into the nearby generators. However, there are different puzzles for each crystal canister location.
  3. The first crystal canister can be found in the open lot right in the corner under a window. It will spawn many fake duplicate crystals around the area.
  4. The real canister will not contain any animated black smoke, but grabbing the wrong container will spawn boss zombies, so be very careful.
  5. Take the crystal container back to mission control and place it into the Aether Reactor.
  6. The next crystal container can be dug up to the left of the staircase leading up to the data center in the corner near the field hospital. You should get a prompt to dig up the crystal.
  7. This crystal canister puzzle is a bit different, you will need to keep your distance from the canister or else it will move. Once you have a clear shot with the RAIK-84, use the alternate fire mode to freeze the canister in place.
  8. Now quickly move up and collect the canister whilst it is frozen in place.
  9. Take the crystal canister back to the Aether Reactor and insert the second crystal.
  10. The third and final crystal canister can be dug up at Jungle Defence. You will have to stay inside the zone and survive in order to complete the final crystal puzzle.
  11. After this, take the crystal back to the Aether Reactor once more and insert the canister.
