The Voyage of Despair is a new Black Ops 4 Zombies map that’s set on the fateful R.M.S. Titanic. Like previous iterations, this zombies map features a machine called the Pack-a-Punch which allows you to power up your weapon for 5000 points. Here’s how to activate the Voyage of Despair‘s Pack-a-Punch.
The first thing you need to do is unlock the Sentinel Artifact, which can be found on the Stern of the ship. You will first spawn on the ‘Forecastle’ and will need to collect 750 points in order to clear the first debris.
Unlockable doors and debris are marked by a glowing blue symbol, and you’re going to have to unlock a lot of them on your way to the Pack-a-Punch.

Head up the right staircase from the Forecastle and get past the first debris wall. You’ll then find yourself on the Bridge. Head left to the inside of the ship and unlock the next door for 1000 points. Passing this door will take you to the ‘Upper Grand Staircase.’ Take the staircase down one floor and open the next door for 1250 points to get to the 1st Class Lounge.
Once in the lounge, find the next unlockable door to get to the ‘Promenade Port Deck.’ The door will cost 1500 points. If you hug the right edge of the Port Deck, you will be able to scale up on some debris to get to the ‘Aft Decks.’
Here you will find some more debris that can be unlocked for 1750 points. The next area will be the ‘Poop Deck’ and near the back on a lifted walkway is a steering wheel with the sentinel artifact sitting on top of it. Obtaining this artifact will unlock all of the debris and doors that once had the red symbol.
The first step of the Pack-a-Punch will also appear just below the steering wheel the artifact once sat on. Once you activate the first Pack-a-Punch pedestal, it’s time to head to the lower levels of the ship.
The entrance to the lower levels is right under the pack-a-punch pedestal. Make your way through the ‘Provisions’ area until you find the unlockable door for 2000 points.
This door unlocks the Engine Room where you’ll have to swim to get to the second Pack-a-Punch Pedestal. The lower level of the Engine Room is flooded and the Pedestal will be illuminated by a glowing red triangle.
Once this is all done, head back to the Forecastle area, which is the initial spawn point.
The red doors will be unlocked now and allow you to drop into the ‘Mail Rooms.’ There will be an unlockable door here for 2000 points that will then let you into the ‘Cargo Hold.’ The Cargo Hold is also flooded and the third pack-a-punch pedestal can be found underwater towards the back.
Activating the third pedestal will spawn the actual Pack-a-Punch machine at the ‘Lower Grand Staircase.’ Just head towards the ‘Upper Grand Staircase’ and go down four floors to find the Pack-a-Punch machine. It costs 5000 points to upgrade a weapon.
