The Wave Gun is a Wonder Weapon that is featured in the Zombies map Moon. It causes zombies to cough up blood, then slowly expand while floating away, and then explode into a bloody mist. It can also be taken apart and dual wielded, in which it becomes the Zap Gun Dual Wield, which fires bolts of electricity similar to the Wunderwaffe DG-2. Except for that they only kill the zombie they hit, with no spreading effect.

When Pack-a-Punched via the Pack-a-Punch Machine, the dual wielded version becomes Porter's X2 Zap Gun Dual Wield, and the combined version becomes the Max Wave Gun.


The Wave Gun can be obtained in the Mystery Box or from a potential QED drop. When first equipped, the gun is found in Dual Wield mode. The Zap guns fire red balls of electricity that kills zombies instantly upon contact, similar to the Wunderwaffe DG-2. It only kills the zombie it hits, and no others are affected. The Dual Wield Zap Gun will always be a one-shot kill to any zombies at any range. After hitting Left on the D-Pad or 5 (default on PC version) the guns combine to become one weapon, which fires a purple beam; once the beam reaches its target it causes zombies in the blast radius to cough up blood, then slowly expand and explode. The Pack-a-Punched version causes the zombies to perform an extra animation before expanding, and has increased ammo capacity and reserve ammo. This weapon is very useful at higher rounds due to its large magazines, the ability to change to fire mode instantly as well as its infinite damage.
