Black Ops 4 Zombies Blood of the Dead Pack-a-Punch Guide
Firstly, you’ll need to do two things on the Blood of the Dead map in order to set yourself up to unlock the Pack-a-Punch machine: turn on the power, and build the shield. For a walkthrough of the first part, head over to our Blood of the Dead power guide, and alternatively, check out our Blood of the Dead shield guide for how to construct the item.
Once you’ve constructed the shield, the rest of the mission is actually really simple. When you’ve got the shield equipped on the Blood of the Dead map, you can press the left trigger to aim with the warden key, and hold the right trigger to absorb energy from Zombies, charging the key and killing them in the process.
The aim of the game here is to charge the warden key up fully, so that it’s glowing with a blue aura, and use it to power up the disabled Pack-a-Punch machine. You can find the Pack-a-Punch machine located on the roof of the prison block, and to charge it up, you want to aim the warden key and fire at the box just next to the machine. Rinse and repeat, until you’ve charged up the Pack-a-Punch machine, and it powers up, letting you supercharge your weapons for 5000 points.
