How to upgrade the Apothican Servant legit?

Recommended Posts

I tried the 'glitch' today to PAP the WW but it wouldn't let me, I guess Treyarch have patched it. So, anyone know how to upgrade the gun properly? There must be a way, the upgraded version is so much better than the original one, it's barely worth keeping without being able to PAP it as the ammo is so low...:(

I did notice that there seemed to be some sort of hotfix. I've yet to try & PaP the W.W. since this. However I have noticed the Zombies don't seem to be as aggressive as they were, & the Beast mode seems like it's lasting longer than what it was before.

Was your other gun already upgraded?

It costs 2500 to Pack-a-Punch a previously upgraded weapon, so the glitch doesn't register since you'd only be paying 2500 to upgrade the Apothican Servant. You must hold a weapon that's not upgraded before doing the glitch so you are able to pay the full 5000 points to upgrade. This happened to me yesterday so I replaced my upgraded weapon then tried again and it worked. I don't think it's patched.

That was a glitch that they patched as I have been trying all night but to no avail. It must mean there is a way to upgrade it so SoE is not done yet.

Pretty sure on PC at least it's been patched (I'm not the only one to have mentioned it) but the scenario you described was the case, I had a multi-PAP gun in my hands (I noticed the hintstring bugged out sometimes and said 'Cost:5000' for a split second when pulling out the A.S. but it just wouldn't accept the gun. I'll confirm with a non-PAP gun though to be sure.

 

But, even still, this is surely not the 'proper' way to do this? Is there literally no info out there on upgrading it legit? Has anyone tried after doing the EE? It's not beyond the realms of possibility that Treyarch would leave in an upgraded version by 'accident' (they did similar on past BO1/2 maps), but I for one would be truly saddened if there was literally no way to upgrade it. The ammo in the normal one is too low, it's not like the Sliquifier which had tons of ammo and was OP enough as it was either.

It still works for me, its troublesome though, you need an un-upgraded LMG to pull it off and have to try multiple angles of the PaP. Of course if this whole easy pap was a glitch and has been removed, then there is still something to discover in the map which is how do we upgrade it properly... Some people have suggested the PaP version shouldnt be there but i hope thats not the case, why would they go to the trouble of making one and making it better, more ammo, different colours etc if it wasnt meant to be there? Either way im more surprised they havent fixed how everyone can get the weapon from the bench unless it was intentional? Surely they'd learnt their lesson from the sliquifer which was patched the same day. But if they wont allow us to upgrade it then tbh we should all be allowed to use it as the first version isnt that great.

This is my question, I mentioned it in some other thread, but maybe this was supposed to be a bonus or like reward to the Easter egg?

 

Which would absolutely suck, unless there's a way to do it solo as well.

There is a GobbleGum that temporarily upgrades the weapon you're holding(for a mere 60 seconds). Hopefully this isn't the sole purpose of the different colors and extra ammo :(

This isn't true, I have pack a punched the servant holding a double pack a punched gun. I find the trick is to hold down the F key (pc) a few seconds rather than just tapping it when swapping weapons

What you said above mate seems to be the same for the xbone, keep holding it after switching weapons and it took the gun.

It can't just be the gumball. Why would they bother if the gun's only going to last a minute at a time? Why would they let the pack-a-punch accept the weapon at all?

Do you mean the Ephemeral Enhancement? I've heard people suggest that but it only lasts 60 seconds. I wonder if Wall Power would work if you picked the weapon up after eating the gobblegum, so at least it can be packed for a whole game but it's so hard to come by I still think there is another way.

I just spent quite a while trying what Jim suggested on PC and no bananas for me :(

There's a gumball that gives you a pack-a-punch version of the gun for 60 seconds, with 2 charges. I think Liam is implying that this is the only way to aquire the pack-a-punched version of the apothican servant. I really hope he's wrong.

The hintstrings are so glitchy in BO3 zombies right now perhaps its possible we are supposed to be able to PaP it as any other gun but the hintstring is glitched up so we can only PaP it in a tedious way?

Yes, that one is known now but the real and most obvious question is, when you go to the effort of making and renaming a weapon for the purposes of being an upgraded version then surely it has more of a purpose than the gumballs.

 

I am of the persuation that based on MotD and Origins then there HAS to be a way of upgrading this weapon legitimately. Not sure how yet but the fact that the upgraded version is a legitimate weapon in the weapon set cycle it has to be obtainable.

 

Edit: An example being the Sliquifier in BO2. In the PC coding it was called the Sliquifier 2.0 and even had a place holder but the gun was not altered in anyway visually, only the ammo count. The gun in SoE is actually renamed and the portal effect is different with the ammo account raised. It has to be added purposfully.

i swear im gonna be pissed if there is another long ass step just to upgrade it

Not as pissed as if it's not upgradable at all :( Without this 'glitch' it makes me hesitant to even go for a high round solo game tbh, the normal one just isn't good enough for how much ammo it holds...

Well each weapon now has to have some kind of upgraded version because of the gumballs. I honestly don't think there's any way to properly upgrade it and if there is its yet another easter egg with no direction for something so basic

Well I hear you on that front definitely, but remember how the retriever was upgraded or the Acid Gat. They had no narrative... just purely by chance they could be upgraded. I don't agree with how the campaign team execute their Easter egg's but no narrative doesn't always mean no secret.

 

I am of the persuation though that if you or other affiliates don't report it then it doesn't exist. Only because no other major secret has ever been discovered within the first week of a map, so I doubt one ever will.

Who knows, I hope I'm wrong but it just seems like something that we would have made at least some progress with by now
