Black Ops 4 Zombies: Voyage of Despair – How To Get A Free Kraken | Chest Puzzle Guide

The Kraken is required for the main Easter egg quest in “Voyage of Despair” — and it’s also an awesome Wonder Weapon. You’ll want to get your Zombie-fighting mitts on this powerful, versatile little gun to last long against the hordes. You can always grab a Kraken from the Mystery Box, but there’s another, cheaper way to get one.

If you’re willing to solve a little locked chest puzzle, you can get a Kraken totally for free. If you’re tired of wasting money on random Mystery Box rolls, this is a pretty good option. You’ll need to destroy one of those challenging Stoker mini-boss zombies, then unlock a hidden chest. The rest is pretty straightforward — as long as you know where to look.
