I think it's time to finally address the question about the Gersch Device name, it's been 6 years now haha.

We know that Gersh is the correct spelling for the character, confirmed by a cipher on Zetsubou No Shima. But the achievement They are going THROUGH! already stated that Gersh was the correct name while we always assume it was a mistake.

So why not change it for good?

I saw that the game files "proove" that Gersh is wrong and Gersch is correct. I don't have the game on PC, so I just checked a little on Google and I find the console command for the device would be "bh_bomb_zm". Can someone provide the real files that state it is Gersch ?

Also what's better? In-game files we don't see (the name "Gersch device" is not even shown on Ascension iirc) or a cipher made by Treyarch one year ago + an achievement related to the device? I could understand the struggle if the achievement was "Gersch" but that's not the case. So why did we not change it already?

Note: I already changed the page name to "Gersh Device" in case we will change it but I didn't change all the "Gersch" in case we will not.

I don't know... Several sources (including IGN) list is as "Gersch". On the opposite side, this video lists the name files as "gersh" six times and "gersch" one time, though we can't be sure of the fiability of this. In the page history, I see that CoaZ stated that it's named "Gersch" in-game, but how so? I don't think the name is explicitly given in-game.

According to the new Zombie Chronicles stuff, the spelling is "Gersh".seen here. As such I think we should use that spelling. 13:53, May 16, 2017 (UTC)

I feel we have evidence enough to conclude that Gersh is the correct spelling, and plus, someone already changed all the pages to reflect that. Forum should be closed. Joe Copp 19:46, May 18, 2017 (UTC)


As Joe says, we should have enough evidence, but for the sake of things, we';ll have a quick vote.

"Gersch" spellingEdit

Closed- We have definitive proof of the spelling, no need for a vote. The spelling is "Gersh", plain and simple. Conqueror of all Zombies (talk) 20:38, May 18, 2017 (UTC)
