Don't D.I.E. while upgrading the wonder weapon

Now that we have this awesome firepower of the D.I.E. Wonder Weapon, we can make it even more destructive by upgrading it in a nice selection of 4 different flavours. To upgrade the D.I.E. wonder weapon, there are only 2 things we need to have done before we can upgrade anything.

1. Have obtained the D.I.E. wonder weapon

2. Gone into the Dar Aether and Repaired the Pack A Punch Machine 

The 4 flavours of the upgrade come in the form of:

  • Fire upgrade - D.I.E. Thermophasic upgrade
  • Electric Upgrade - D.I.E. Shockwave upgrade
  • Ice Upgrade - D.I.E. Cryo-Emitter upgrade
  • D.I.E. Nova 5 Upgrade - Toxic Upgrade

Fire Upgrade
In order to upgrade the D.I.E Wonder Weapon to FIRE, we need to head over to fire's worst enemy, an area which contains water, you got it, the POND AREA

Here you will find to the right of where the mystery box is located an anomaly that allows you to enter the dark aether. This portal only relates to the fire upgrade and none of the others associated with the D.I.E. wonder weapon.

When you enter the Aether, head over to the CRASH SITE area where the downed plane is embedded in the snow. Go to where the front of the plane is located, the cockpit, where you will find that it is mysteriously hovering above the ground like something possessed. Underneath where it was lying in the snow is now a box.

All you have to do is MELEE the box that was under the cockpit, causing it to spring open, revealing a FUSE. Not sure how many amps this is or if it will fit into your kettles plug as a replacement, but all we do know is, it will appear in your HUD when you press the BACK button as 1 of 3 CARTRIDGES.

While still in the Dark Aether, you need to run over to the WEAPONS LAB area and drop down to the area where DEAD SHOT DAIQUIRI PERK MACHINE is. Just facing this perk machine is a PLASMA CUTTER machine that you need to put the FUSE into.

When you place the fuse in the machine, an animation of the laser cutter will show it cutting into something. Then when you come back into the normal world, head back over to the POND area and just beside where the Anomaly was to enter the Dark Aether, there is a half knackered truck sitting, with a box on the back.

Climb onto this truck and open the box, which will contain a present even more fierier than the hottest chilli on earth, the D.I.E. Thermophasic upgrade.

Crystal Clear Treasure Hunt with Shocking Results
Next upgrade we will look at is for the ELECTRIC UPGRADE of the wonderweapon. To do this we need head over to the PARTICLE ACCELERATOR area and on the ground floor, where the crafting table is located, an anomaly will appear behind the stairs.

Go up to it and enter the Dark Aether again. This is a time dependent process which needs to be carried out in upgrading to the ELECTRIC, so make sure you get all 3 of these CRYSTALS AND SHOOTING THEM INTO THE RELEVANT BOX before you get kicked out of the Aether. The 3 crystals are in different locations:

  • Roof of the BEDROOM AREA

  • Behind mystery box in the POND AREA 

  • At the CRASH SITE AREA to the right of the TUNNEL entrance

When you find a crystal, use the wonder weapons other fire mode which sucks thigns towards it. When you find one of these yellow glowing crystals, you will need to:

  • Suck the energy from a single crystal
  • Run down to the Pack A Punch machine room PARTICLE ACCELERATOR
  • Facing the Anomaly you entered here, shoot the crystal energy into an ammo box

You need to do this for each crystal, as only one can be done at a time, so make sure you have opened and calculated the shortest distance to get you down to the PARTICLE ACCELERATOR room again. Lots of people suggest getting the perk STAMINUP which lets you run for longer and will give you more precious seconds in the Aether to get these 3 crystals done and dusted.

If you have sucked the energy out of the last crystal and come back into the normal world again, it will allow you to keep the energy and shooting it into the ammo box in the real world will let it count also. Shoot the crystal energy for all 3 crystals into this box

If you fail this step, the anomaly will disappear for a while, but killing zombies for a minute or two or progressing onto another round usually makes it appear again, so don't worry if make a Horlicks out of it first time around.

you will notice that as you discharge the crystal energy into the box, a yellow light will appear on the box indicating how many you have shot into it. When all 3 lights are yellow you can upgrade to the D.I.E. ELECTROBOLT.

Baby its cold stay frosty!
Now we can move onto the ICE UPGRADE which upgrades the D.I.E. Wonder weapon to the D.I.E. Cryo Emitter. In order to be as cool as ice......we need to sing on our travels this time the song ice ice baby.... as we make our way over to the PENTHOUSE AREA on top of the OMEGA OUTPOST.

When we get there, look toward the POND AREA and you will see a box balancing on the edge of one of the walls. We need to shoot this with the D.I.E. Wonder weapon. When we do, it will fall down into the POND AREA and the box will reveal and EMPTY FLASK.

Now we need to progress through the rounds until we get a MEGATON ZOMBIE to spawn in, who we will use to activate a dormant object stuck to one of the TREES in the POND area. It sort of looks like a kind of fungus formation, but I am not botanist so don't take my advice, we simply need to get the MEGATON ZOMBIE to shoot the weird object so we can activate the MUTATED FUNGUS on the tree and collect some fluid from it.

Simply stand behind the tree and juke out now and again for the MEGATON ZOMBIE to lock onto you and fire off a couple of rounds. Using the tree as cover means it will be guaranteed to hit and activate it. You will know the MEGATON ZOMBIE has hit the tree successfully when you hear a quote from MAJOR CARVER. 

Now you can walk up to the MUTATED FUNGUS in the tree and hold the USE button on it to collect CRYOGENIC LIQUID. Once you place the empty flask at the tree to collect the liquid, it will take about 30 seconds to fill the flask. Then head back shortly after placing it and you will see that the flask now says it is a FULL FLASK you are picking up.

Now the flask is full, take it down to the MEDICAL BAY area and just before the door that goes into the PARTICLE ACCLERATOR ROOM, near the SPEED COLA PERK MACHINE, there is a green box sitting on the floor which you pour out the Cryogenic fluid onto. Once you do this, some chains will appear around the box, causing it to open and revealing the CRYO EMITTER UPGRADE.

D.I.E. Nova 5
To get this upgrade, we need to have the D.I.E. Shockwave upgrade equipped, and have to trek over to the MEZZANINE area of the OMEGA OUTPOST. When on this floor, go to where the EMPTY CANISTER part is marked on the map below:

When you get to this location, use the energy sucking function of the D.I.E. Shockwave and point it toward this empty canister. This will make it come flying over to you so you can pick it up.

When you pick up this canister, it is to be taken to the WEAPONS LAB area near the DEAD SHOT perk. There is a machine in the corner of this lower level of the WEAPONS LAB which wants you to put the canister in a "CLEANING UNIT" machine

Next all you need to do is kill a PLAGUEHOUND next to the canister, which will then trap some of the gas that is emitted from it when it dies. 

Don't worry we are not catching the dogs farts or anything after a few baked beans, this machine is not a fart gas trapper, its a more serious, scientific bit of kit........ this PLAGUEHOUND GAS CANISTER PART is then taken to the CRASH SITE area and placed on a WEAPONS CRATE to the right of the planes destroyed cockpit.

Now we have all 4 upgrades completed, we need to head back to the MEDICAL BAY.
