Easter Egg: Part 1 -- Part 2 -- Part 3 --
Secrets: Boat Propeller -- Charm Locations -- Crossbow -- Crossbow Upgrading --
here is the guide on how to upgrade the crossbow named Vlad in Rave in the Redwoods Zombies for Infinite Warfare. As if a normal crossbow wasn't cool or deadly enough, we can go one better and can ramp it up a notch by adding things like acid rain to its attack. If the arrow doesn't kill that freaking zombie first time, the ensuing acid rain shower will.
Depending on what statues you collect and apply to the crossbow, it will give you a different upgraded effect. The animal statues and their corresponding affects on the crossbow are:
- OWL - ACID RAIN
- WOLF - BEN FRANKLIN
- EAGLE - TRAP-O-MATIC
- DEER - WHIRLWIND EF-5
Lets get down to upgrading the crossbow, first we will need to have acquired the normal crossbow. If you are unsure how to do this, check out my CROSSBOW GUIDE. As Mario says "Lets a go!".
Step 1 - Animality!
To upgrade the crossbow, we will be looking for small animal statues throughout the map. These can be in many spawn places, around 9 or so that have been found so far. Through each play through, the same type of statue rarely appears in the same place. The same spawn location may have a totally different statue type on another play through.....so sue me.
When you see a statue, there will be a white glow around it. The statues will come in the form of little wooden and very cute carved animals.
Here is a list of the known locations on the map where statues may appear:
Animal Statue Spawn Locations:
- Picnic Table in Camp Wolf, to the left of the fire pit and adjacent to the sign with the graffiti saying "Power" on it.
- Trailer in the Recreational Area, near the Type-2, in the corner near the leather sofa....how the other half live eh?
- Near climbing wall in the Recreational Area, jumping across the gap in the bridge at the assault course and looking down to the left when you get to the other side.
- Out back on the Balcony bannister of the washroom cabin with the sinks, on the OWL side of Bear Lane Cabins.
- Behind a canoe in the shadows behind it at the docks area
- On an upturned table at the docks near Trail Blazers
- Next to bench in between Mess Hall and OWL side of Bear Lane.
- On wooden stairs next to Bang Bangs
- On the obstacle course on the floor when heading up the steps and the platform just below where the rubber tyres are.
Now we have charged the smaller statues with souls, we can now run around the map and place the animal statues in front of their larger animal statues. Depending on which statue we place the smaller statue in front of, this will decide which upgrade the bow will take on.
Lets find out the locations of these larger statues to get you some more kick ass fire power into your crossbow:
This is located facing the fire pit about a metre away from it, which is at the entrance to the ADVENTURE COURSE area, lit up very dimly by a small lantern.
Owl and Wolf Location
The Owl and Wolf statues are literally beside each other, either side of the BEAR LAKE CABINS "Owl" and "Wolf" directional signs.
The dear can be located just outside of the boat house near the docks area.
Simply place the statues down on which ever upgrade you like. They do not all need to be done, or in any particular, it is up to you to choose which kick ass upgrade you prefer. Now that you have the smaller statue placed in front of the bigger one, you want to start killing zombies directly in front of the smaller statue with the VLAD CROSSBOW.
When about 10 to 15 zombies have been killed, you will be able to pick up your mini statue again. As soon as you pick it up, it will automatically apply the upgrade to your crossbow. If you want to change crossbows or apply a different upgrade to the bow, simply return to the MAIN SPAWN CABIN and get a fresh crossbow and repeat the steps again of finding the larger animal statue you want the upgrade for, place the smaller statue down, and kill zombies with the normal VLAD crossbow, then pick up the mini statue again.....simples.
Here are the upgraded bows in action:
The Trap-O-Matic allows you to go akimbo with two crossbows and you fire up to 4 or 5 bolts onto the ground at various distances apart and lure a ton of zombies in before it goes off. What it does is creates a chained electricity bolt between all of the darts you have fired onto the ground and kills all the zombies in between all of the darts, very powerful and very cool no doubt.
The last bow is the BEN FRANKLIN which delivers a lightning bolt into the area where the arrow is shot to. This can take out large numbers of zombies with the lightning strike.....whoever said lightning never strikes the same place twice was laying as I shot this arrow twice in the same spot and it did so....yeah take that science!
