All Gem Combinations and Totem Poles Traps Guide for Rave in the Redwoods Zombies - Infinite Warfare

Easter Egg: Part 1 -- Part 2 -- Part 3 --

Secrets: Boat Propeller -- Charm Locations -- Crossbow -- Crossbow Upgrading --

Hey guys,

here is the walkthrough guide showing you all of the possible traps that can be built in Rave in the Redwoods zombies and showing you their specific gem combinations in order to create them. These traps can save your bacon at times and can come in really handy for some of the main Easter egg steps so they are nothing to be sniffed at....unless you have a cold.

In total there are 3 different coloured gems that zombies can leave behind after you kill them. Whether the zombies robbed a jewellery store and then ate all of these gems.....we cannot confirm....however I do know that killing them will relieve some killer indigestion so your doing them a favour.

The 3 colours of gems are:

  • BLUE

You may have guessed that these are very much like the souvenir coins from Zombies in Spaceland and you will hear no argument from me that it is not similar. We place the gems into the totem poles dotted around the map to build the traps.

These gem combinations can be put in any order of colour so if you think you have accidentally put one in the wrong order, fret not, as its not relevant the order in this case.

Balloon Trap = 2 x Blue & 1 x Orange

Zombies are total air heads right? This trap when placed down makes zombies lighter than air and float up into the sky in huge numbers and spontaneously explode. Much better than any fire work show or balloon animal any clown has made me since I been alive.

Boombox = 2 x Orange & 1 x Blue

Nothing gets a zombie more jiggy on the dancefloor than a boombox strapped with high explosives. This is pretty much the same thing as the monkey bomb from every other call of duty. This was first introduced as you know in Zombies in Spaceland. It attracts the zombies over with some funky beats then explodes in their faces.

Electric Trap =  2 x Purple & 1 x Blue

Simply place this down and any zombies that step over it will get shocking results and electrocuted. Totally zaptastic!

Fireworks Trap = 2 x Orange & 1 x Purple

Simply place it down, watch all the purdy sparkles and rockets whizz off into the air while at the same time, kicking zombie ass in the process.

Kindle Pops = 1 x Blue & 1 x Purple & 1 x Orange

These leave a trail of breadcrumb like fire candy that you dab onto the ground, then shoot it to ignite. The zombies that walk through it will die a horribly and poptastic death. Great for cordoning off an entrance to a room or zombie spawn point.

Laser Window Trap = 2 x Purple & 1 x Orange

From zombies in Spaceland we have this trap which can be placed over any window in the map to help weaken and slice and dice zombies from their source. Reminds me out of the laser in the air vent in the film Mission Impossible when Tom Cruise is hanging from the ceiling.

Lawnmower = 2 x Blue & 1 x Purple

This is a new trap which is very cool, you can place it down on the ground and train zombies to run into it and get a hair cut from the blades permanently. You can also hold it in your hands and run into them yourself with it, just watch those fingers, safety first.

Medusa Device = 3 x Orange

We invented rechargeable batteries, now we have rechargeable nuclear detonation devices. What you do with this trap is place it on the ground, and kill zombies near it to charge up with zombie souls. When there is enough souls contained within it, run over to it and it will say hold the USE button to detonate. Get lots of zombies in the map and hit it and it activates a KABOOM style nuke effect.

Revector = 3 x Blue

This is brain washing on a whole new we can now control the minds of the dead now and change them from good to bad. Place this down and any zombies that steps over it will become a friendly ally, blue sparks will emit from him now and again, his eyes will turn blue and he will turn on his flesh crazed friends and stock knocking their melt in for you.

Sentry Turret = 3 x Purple

This is simply the sentry turret from multiplayer and is an automated zombie killing machine. Careful not to get in its direct line of fire as you can get hit by friendly fire from a quote from Call of Duty 4 Modern Warfare says "Friendly fire....isn't", damn where they right, any bullet from a friendly or enemy gun hurts like hell!

Still unsure how to do it? Then check out CodeNamePizza's video below to see the simple guide on how its done:

Thanks for reading as always guys.

Secret Song Easter Egg for Rave In the Redwoods - Infinite Warfare

Easter Egg: Part 1 -- Part 2 -- Part 3 --

Secrets: Boat Propeller -- Charm Locations -- Crossbow -- Crossbow Upgrading --

Hey guys,

here is the guide on how to unlock the secret Easter Egg Song in Rave in the Redwoods Zombies for Call of Duty Infinite Warfare. Everyone loves a sing song and thankfully you won't be hearing my singing in this level, as I don't want to give you a sore head or make you chuck your speakers out the window.....those things are expensive. I will leave the tunes and singing to the professionals.

This is a slightly more long winded version of activating a secret song rather than simply finding 3 bears scattered around the map, as it involves finding and shooting about 10 glowing spots that can only be seen in RAVE MODE VISION. You have to keep shooting the glowing blue dots until you see a symbol appear. That's when you know you have successfully activated that dot.

Before attempting this musical Easter Egg, we need to have the following completed:

  • Turn on the Power for this map, Let's get this party started!
  • Obtain Rave Pouch - Dropped by zombies randomly, interacting with fire initiates RAVE MODE

Now we have those two hurdles out of the way, lets rock n' roll and get these tunes pumping. You can use the Fairies to extend your RAVE MODE VISION each time if you are having trouble finding more pouches.

Here are all of the locations of the glowing spot locations:

Location 1 - Roof's the Limit

In the Spawn Room, look up from the fireplace and shoot the glowing spot until it turns into a rune. It’s located above the  chandelier.

Location 2 - Paint me a picture

In the main spawn cabin, head up the stairs from the fireplace and shoot the leaning painting sitting on the rather comfy looking sofa.

Location 3 - Pronely does it

This one might be hard to spot, its still upstairs in the main spawn cabin and is underneath the table that is sitting right beside the pool table. Go prone to get the spot into view, line up those sights and shoot the glowing spot on the underside of the table to move onto the next one.

Location 4 - Your mini barred from this club

Just across from this table beside the pool table, look across to the kitchen area beside it which has a mini bar style counter. Get an angle so you can see behind this counter and you will notice a sneaky wee glowing spot just on the back of it.

Location 5 - This roof has a point

Out on the balcony on the opposite side of the room from the mini bar in location 4, head out the balcony side which has the blue speakers in the corner on the right as you walk out the door, spin around and look up toward the roof. There you will see another glowing spot. Shoot it and keep her lit.

Location 6 - Fiddler on the roof....well..... blue glowy thing on the roof

Drop down from the balcony mentioned in location 5 band you will arrive beside  up and atoms and turn left to look down the front porch of the main spawn cabin. You will see at the end of the porch a tin roof of another building and a glowing spot on top of it. Just going to the right along the porch you can top up RAVE MODE VISION by talking to the fairies like a total nut job. Then shoot the blue glow and move on.

Location 7 - "Sir, someone at reception for you"

From location 6, enter the main spawn cabin again and you will be in the lobby area. Just under the receptions front desk, is another blue glow for you to shoot, underneath the ancient looking computer which would make a great door stop for any door you have trouble holding open....recycle my friends.

Location 8 - I'm boxed in

Go back upstairs and enter the second floor room with the Tuff Nuff machine. As you enter, look left to spot the glowing spot behind the cardboard boxes.

Location 9 - Its been shelved

Starting from the Tuff Nuff room’s balcony entrance, from the door, go prone near the cubbies on the right which look like they have been bought from IKEA....god I hate flat packed furniture. Near the floor, there’s a well-hidden glowing spot on the lowest shelf. Shoot it and move on.

Location 10 - This blue thing should be lockered up

The last glowing spot is in the locker corner opposite the Tuff Nuff machine, just to the left.

If you successfully activated all 10 runes, you’ll get a +1000XP pop-up letting you know your an awesome player, which I already knew :).

Now the funny thing is, you won't actually hear the music play in game straight away, it can only be heard in the RECREATIONAL AREA as it has some kick ass sound system setup there...probably Dolby 5.1....which will blow your mind when you hear it. It will also play when you are in the MENU for Rave in the Redwoods.

You will also get the achievement / trophy unlocking letting you show off to others that you have done this little Easter Egg. It is a bit more work than the other previous musical Easter Egg's in zombies, but the little achievement makes it all worthwhile....especially for achievement hunters.

Still unsure how to unlock or find any of these blue glowing orb locations? Then check out MrDalekJD's video below which is very easy to follow:

Upgrading the crossbow in Rave in the Redwoods - Infinite Warfare

Hey guys,

here is the guide on how to upgrade the crossbow named Vlad in Rave in the Redwoods Zombies for Infinite Warfare. As if a normal crossbow wasn't cool or deadly enough, we can go one better and can ramp it up a notch by adding things like acid rain to its attack. If the arrow doesn't kill that freaking zombie first time, the ensuing acid rain shower will.

Depending on what statues you collect and apply to the crossbow, it will give you a different upgraded effect. The animal statues and their corresponding affects on the crossbow are:


When we have collected the smaller animal statues, we will be them down in front of their larger statues dotted around the map and getting zombie kills with the normal cross bow in front of them. This will charge them up with zombie souls. Then, depending on what statue you are working on, picking up the smaller statue again will automatically apply the upgrade to the crossbow you are carrying.

Lets get down to upgrading the crossbow, first we will need to have acquired the normal crossbow. If you are unsure how to do this, check out my CROSSBOW GUIDE. As Mario says "Lets a go!".

Step 1 - Animality!

To upgrade the crossbow, we will be looking for small animal statues throughout the map. These can be in many spawn places, around 9 or so that have been found so far. Through each play through, the same type of statue rarely appears in the same place. The same spawn location may have a totally different statue type on another play sue me.

When you see a statue, there will be a white glow around it. The statues will come in the form of little wooden and very cute carved animals.

Here is a list of the known locations on the map where statues may appear:

Animal Statue Spawn Locations:

  • Picnic Table in Camp Wolf, to the left of the fire pit and adjacent to the sign with the graffiti saying "Power" on it.

  • Trailer in the Recreational Area, near the Type-2, in the corner near the leather the other half live eh?

  • Near climbing wall in the Recreational Area, jumping across the gap in the bridge at the assault course and looking down to the left when you get to the other side.

  • Out back on the Balcony bannister of the washroom cabin with the sinks, on the OWL side of Bear Lane Cabins.

  • Behind a canoe in the shadows behind it at the docks area

  • On an upturned table at the docks near Trail Blazers

  • Next to bench in between Mess Hall and OWL side of Bear Lane.

  • On wooden stairs next to Bang Bangs

  • On the obstacle course on the floor when heading up the steps and the platform just below where the rubber tyres are.

Step 2 - Speaker up I can't hear you!

Now that you have acquired all of the statues, go to the RECREATIONAL AREA and locate the large array of speakers in the middle. Here, you will place all 4 statues on top of these speakers. There will be 2 dark squares on top of each of the speakers where the statues will actually go.

Once all of the statues are probably guessed already, we need to kill some zombies nearby to charge it with their aura so to speak. When you kill zombies, you will know you are killing them the right way, either with headshots, shooting their arms off first, legs, with explosives etc. as when you kill each zombie, you will notice a little RED flicker or light when they die. This means you are charging the statues to perfection.

If you have killed enough zombies and in the right away, you will be able to pick your statues back up. So check back after so many kills that you can pick them up again and your not wasting tons of ammo on them for no reasons. Pick up each of the Statues and we can move onto the next step.

Step 3 - Big brother, little brother

Now we have charged the smaller statues with souls, we can now run around the map and place the animal statues in front of their larger animal statues. Depending on which statue we place the smaller statue in front of, this will decide which upgrade the bow will take on.

Lets find out the locations of these larger statues to get you some more kick ass fire power into your crossbow:

Eagle Location

This is located facing the fire pit about a metre away from it, which is at the entrance to the ADVENTURE COURSE area, lit up very dimly by a small lantern.

Owl and Wolf Location

The Owl and Wolf statues are literally beside each other, either side of the BEAR LAKE CABINS "Owl" and "Wolf" directional signs.

Deer Location

The dear can be located just outside of the boat house near the docks area.

Simply place the statues down on which ever upgrade you like. They do not all need to be done, or in any particular, it is up to you to choose which kick ass upgrade you prefer. Now that you have the smaller statue placed in front of the bigger one, you want to start killing zombies directly in front of the smaller statue with the VLAD CROSSBOW.

When about 10 to 15 zombies have been killed, you will be able to pick up your mini statue again. As soon as you pick it up, it will automatically apply the upgrade to your crossbow. If you want to change crossbows or apply a different upgrade to the bow, simply return to the MAIN SPAWN CABIN and get a fresh crossbow and repeat the steps again of finding the larger animal statue you want the upgrade for, place the smaller statue down, and kill zombies with the normal VLAD crossbow, then pick up the mini statue again.....simples.

Here are the upgraded bows in action:

The Trap-O-Matic allows you to go akimbo with two crossbows and you fire up to 4 or 5 bolts onto the ground at various distances apart and lure a ton of zombies in before it goes off. What it does is creates a chained electricity bolt between all of the darts you have fired onto the ground and kills all the zombies in between all of the darts, very powerful and very cool no doubt.

The WHIRLWIND-EF 5 does exactly what it says on the tin and each bolt you fire from this crossbow, blows  the zombies away like a whirlwind. Yes it throws them aside like a wet lettuce in a tornado. Its quite good for getting rids of large hordes of zombies in lower rounds and great for clearing zombie restricted ground space.

The ACID RAIN looks amazing and better than any fire work show I ever been to. It fires a bolt into a zombie of the ground and then it just rains what looks like sparks you see coming off an angle grinder grinding a piece of metal. It looks so cool but is also very deadly, don't worry you cannot hurt yourself by walking into this acid bath. I don't think there is an umbrella invented to withstand this kind of rain trust me.

The last bow is the BEN FRANKLIN which delivers a lightning bolt into the area where the arrow is shot to. This can take out large numbers of zombies with the lightning strike.....whoever said lightning never strikes the same place twice was laying as I shot this arrow twice in the same spot and it did so....yeah take that science!

If still unsure about any of the bows, check out MrRoflWaffles video below:
