Black Ops 3 Descent DLC: New Weapons In Gorod Krovi

What new zombie-slaying weapons does Black Ops 3 Descent DLC’s Gorod Krovi contain? 

Update

This was our speculation article, feel free to read on and see how horribly wrong or right we were! If you are looking for the most up to date Gorod Krovi information, our Gorod Krovi Guide Hub is being constantly updated with everything you need to know.

Original story below.

The trailer for Black Ops 3 Descent DLC’s new Zombies map, Gorod Krovi, has been officially released and contains plenty of teases for new weapons which will be available to Zombies players when the Descent DLC map pack launches next month for PlayStation 4. You can watch the Gorod Krovi trailer below, and once you’ve stopped salivating from your initial viewing (don’t worry, we won’t judge you), you can go back to specific time markers to see some of the new weapons Gorod Krovi offers!

At the 0:23 mark, it looks like the player is using a stationary machine gun to mow down encroaching zombie hordes, though it’s hard to tell whether it’s a cinematic moment or actual gameplay from the new Gorod Krovi Zombies map.

At the 1:01 mark, we can see the player using a modified version of the Rocket Shield which features a dragon design and shoots out a blast of green flame whenever the player performs a shield bash.

Could earning this new shield require slaying the large dragon also featured in the Descent DLC pack Gorod Krovi trailer?

Mere seconds later, at the 1:04 mark, we see the player using some sort of electricity-charged gauntlet which appears to function as a Zombies version of Spectre’s Ripper, allowing the player to dash forward and instantly eviscerate any zombie in their path. This seems like an appropriate inclusion considering each past Zombies map has introduced new Zombies versions of specialist weapons.

At the 1:08 mark, the player is using dual NX Shadowclaws which, similar to the dual Marshal 16 pistols from the Zetsubou No Shima Zombies map, will likely be found via Gorod Krovi’s Mystery Box.

Speaking of the Mystery Box, we can see one being used at the 1:11 mark, and before the weapon spin finally stops on a new Thompson-style old-school-looking machine gun, we can see another interesting new weapon flash by: dual ray guns. As for the Thompson machine gun, it doesn’t look that spectacular on its own, but perhaps it is the first step in constructing Gorod Krovi’s map-specific Wonder Weapon? Update: That is the PPSh-41 from World at War Zombies!

Finally, the star of the show, the Dual Wield Mark 3 Ray Gun! That's right, we have a new Ray Gun in the Origins story line, and you can dual wield it!
