New Gun for Call of Duty World at War: Wunderwaffe DG-2

UPDATE 3: Map pack 2 came out a couple days ago. The Wunderwaffe DG-2 is actually a lightning gun for the new Japanese Zombies map Shih no numa. It shoots an electric beam. Video footage is widely available on Youtube.

Since CallofDuty.com announced that the second map pack for June will have a new gun, the Wunderwaffe DG-2, I have been trying to find a picture of it. The only picture I could find is a forum post that looks like concept art for the Call of Duty World at War. Everybody, including myself, views this concept art as a STG-44 with a light on it. Fairly lame.

Current speculation on the forums is that the Wunderwaffe DG-2 is a Nazi Zombie-only weapon. Also, according to the forums, Wunderwaffe translates to “Wonder Weapon.” It reminds me of that old PC flying game The Secrets of the Luftwaffe (see below for video)

is this the call of duty wunderwaffe dg-2

UPDATE my war historian friend, mc midgetman tells me that he saw this very weapon on the history channel recently. As the picture in the upper right shows, the lamp on the top labeled “black searchlight” is a blacklight. Like a laser tag arena with black lights, you can see whites, neons, and other light colors clearly in the dark. This effectively illuminates the people in front of you without being a gleaming beacon like a normal light would.

This would seem to be a logical and easy upgrade in the CoD5 gameplay because CoD4 already had night vision goggles. This would bring night vision to CoD5. Makin Night just got a whole lot easier.

UPDATE 2 this is not concept art from the game. I found this picture somewhere else, not related to Call of Duty. For more information, read about the WunderWaffe 1 – Vampire vision
