One of the most legendary Wonder Weapons in Call of Duty zombies history is making its return to the franchise in just five days.

Zombies Chronicles is the fifth DLC map pack for Call of Duty: Black Ops III, and it will include eight classic zombies maps from previous Treyarch titles.

In the buildup to the release of Zombies Chronicles, Treyarch gave popular zombie-playing YouTubers the chance to record some gameplay on these remastered maps—and today was the day that fans got their first taste of the new and improved Shi No Numa.

Shi No Numa was originally released in 2009 and is the third zombies map ever created. Set in a Japanese swamp, Shi No Numa is a relatively small map with five buildings—one main cabin and four small huts located in opposite corners.

There is no power switch on Shi No Numa, but each of the four huts contains a random perk that changes every game. With Juggernog being an essential perk in zombies, quickly finding the right hut that has this particular perk machine is necessary for survival on Shi No Numa.

The map also introduced the first boss zombie in franchise history—the Hellhounds. These flaming undead dogs spawn every few rounds, taking the place of a normal zombie level. Once all of the Hellhounds have been slain, a Max Ammo power-up will spawn to help players resupply for the upcoming round.

But, what this map is probably most well known for is the introduction of a fan-favorite Wonder Weapon—the Wunderwaffe DG-2. Also known as the Wonder Waffle, this gun shoots out bolts of lightning that can travel through large packs of zombies, electrocuting them all to death. It is one of the most powerful weapons in zombies history, and players are always rushing to the Mystery Box to see who is lucky enough to get the Wunderwaffe first.

Shi No Numa is only one of the remastered maps that zombies fans can’t wait to get their hands on when Zombies Chronicles becomes available first on PlayStation 4 on May 16.
