Black Ops 4 Zombies: How To Build Every Shield | All Maps [Classified, IX, Voyage & Blood]

There are multiple shields in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, but they’re all built the same way. You can find a special shield Wonder Weapon in multiple Zombies maps — including “IX”, “Blood of the Dead”, and “Classified” — and interestingly, the shields are completely different on each map. On some maps, you’ll be able to suck the souls of out Zombies, while in others you’ll have access to a handgun to go with your riot shield. There’s even an ancient roman variant with a spooky silhouette.

The trick to building all the shields is pretty simple — you need to know where to find all the parts. After collecting the three parts, you’ll be able to build the shield at any workbench. Unfortunately, the parts spawn in random locations. There are only a handful of spawn locations for each part, so if you want to track down all these missing parts, you’ll need to check all the random spawn spots. We’ve got them all listed below.
