New Cold War Zombies Mega Barrel Wonder Weapon Leaks Early

There's a new Wonder Weapon coming to Black Ops Cold War Zombies, and players are already discovering how to use the Mega Barrel in-game.

The Call of Duty Zombies series is known for having extravagant Wonder Weapons to help players survive the undead hordes. In Black Ops Cold War Zombies, Treyarch has already given us the D.I.E. Shockwave and the R.A.I. K-84.

These two powerful devices, alongside the Ray Gun, are some of Black Ops Cold War Zombies' best weapons. And now, another devastating gun is about to join the roster.

As it turns out, there's another Cold War Zombies Wonder Weapon in the game's files, known as the Mega Barrel. And fans speculate that it might be coming to Black Ops Cold War Zombies' Kino Der Toten remake map.

Alternatively, it could be a part of the upcoming Cold War Zombies Outbreak Easter egg which should be surfacing in Season 3.

Now, dataminers are finding code in the Black Ops Cold War Zombies files that reference a new Mega Barrel Wonder Weapon.

Whether this is the true name or a codename remains to be seen, but the weapon is certainly coming soon. After all, players have even discovered a way to get the gun working in-game.

It appears that there are several variants of the Mega Barrel, much like other Wonder Weapons. And each ammo type seems to model itself after the existing Cold War Zombies' boss zombies.

Because of this, fans speculate that defeating bosses will allow the Mega Barrel to steal their abilities in some way. What's more, the weapon can fire as though it were a shotgun, pistol, or even an assault rifle.

This jack-of-all-trades weapon has 5 unique ammo types: Giga Lazer, Micro Missile, Copycat, Diffusion Beam, and Blazer Beam. Dataminer Nanikos on Twitter shows off some of what the weapon has to offer:

Bear in mind that the weapon's model is not yet available to use in-game, so Nanikos' videos use the XM4 as a base. However, we can certainly see boss zombie-style ammo in action.

Right now, there's a new Easter egg to discover in Outbreak mode that unlocks a special reward. What's more, players are finding teases for Call of Duty 2021 in-game already.

Recently, Treyarch made a promise about the future of Cold War Zombies that's inspiring hope in fans of the undead survival mode. However, Black Ops Cold War Multiplayer fans are angry at Zombies getting priority in Season 2.
