The Apothicon Servant (also known as the Interdimensional Gun - in short ID Gun) is a Wonder Weapon in the Zombies maps Shadows of Evil and Revelations. When shot, it produces a purple-coloured black-hole that sucks in zombies that get too close, killing them instantly regardless of what round the player is on, similar to the Gersh Device. The black hole will then explode after a set time, killing any zombies nearby. When reloading, the player feeds the Servant with a glowy food.

Shadows of Evil[]

Within Shadows of Evil, the Apothicon Servant can be built utilising parts obtained from the Apothicon forces and assembled at a standard buildable table. Doing so will allow a single instance of the Apothicon Servant to be picked up and copies added to the Mystery Box weapon pool. Uniquely to the map, the Apothicon Servant also has a total of four different names associated with it based on the character holding it., being Mar-Astagua (Shadow-Servant) for Jack Vincent, Nar-Ullaqua (Teeth-Consume) for Nero Blackstone, Kor-Maroth (Eclipse-Shadow) for Jessica Rose, and Lor-Zarozzor (Flow/Radiate-Decay) for Floyd Campbell.

The Apothicon Servant cannot be Pack-a-Punched, and was supposed to have a specific upgrade method, however the trigger for the step was cut[1], however via the debug console on PC, the upgraded variant can be obtained by utilizing the "/give" command or getting the temporary Pack-a-Punch variant by using Ephemeral Enhancement GobbleGum on Last Gen consoles. The upgraded variant says the same name but with the addition of Arbgwaoth (Powerup) appended to its name. It fires a dark red portal that lasts longer, absorbs zombies faster, has an increased explosion radius when the portal finishes, and has an increased ammo capacity of 1+14 (originally was 1+24 until a September 2016 patch[2] lowered it). It also lacks a specific texture to it.


The Apothicon Servant returns in Revelations where it can be obtained from the Mystery Box. Unlike in Shadows of Evil, the Apothicon Servant has only one name, Estulla Astoth (Envy All).

The weapon is able to be Pack-a-Punched by first shooting it at 5 panels that glow an ethereal blue, these panels are located in far places out of the map in the sky. Players must directly hit the panel with the shots, and will know if they are successful if the panel being shot at vanishes.

  • There is no audio cue heard when successfully hitting a panel or when all are hit.

The best way to assure accuracy is to use the two central barbs of four barbs on top of the Apothicon Servant when aiming with it, above the central eye. Make sure the panel is roughly in the middle of the "sight" created by these two central barbs.

  • Above the Jump Pad at the House (spawn area) leading to the Shangri-La section.
  • Above the Shangri-La and Der Eisendrache island, floating above and behind the doorway connecting the two areas. Easiest to hit when standing at the top of the big Shangri-La staircase and before entering the tunnel with the small staircase.
  • Above the Origins/Mob of the Dead island in the direction of the Jump Pad leading to Verrückt. Easiest to see/hit when standing on top of the central mound where the Pack-a-Punch was originally in Origins and looking towards the blue sun, but can be shot from other places, such as from next to the Corruption Engine or Jump Pad leading to Verrückt.
  • Above the Verrückt island, when standing next to the Jump Pad leading to the Mob of the Dead Cafeteria, first look down the hall at the Zetsubou no Shima test tube room and then look up.
  • Above where the Giant Apothicon stays after being electrified at the Nacht der Untoten area. One can stand at the top of the staircase leading down to the Giant Apothicon, and look directly above its head, it will be next to a giant floating rock.

These five panels will travel into the Pack-a-Punch Machine, allowing the Apothicon Servant to be upgraded for the standard cost. The upgraded version is called Estoom-oth (roughly translating to Suffering/Sin-Change in Apothicon) and has a randomly colored camouflage texture similar to other upgraded weapons along side acting similar to the cut Arbgwaoth variant from Shadows of Evil.

  • Wonderful - (BronzeBronze Trophy PS3 icon/15Gamerscore) - In Revelations, kill 10 enemies in one shot with each wonder weapon.
    • Despite this Achievement's description, only the Apothicon Servant and Thundergun are needed.



  • Using a glitch, players could upgrade the Apothicon Servant in Shadows of Evil, and it was quickly fixed in a following update. Players were hunting for a way to obtain the upgrade, with no luck. In an interview with Jason Blundell, he has confirmed that "The Apothicon servant cannot be upgraded... in Shadows of Evil".
  • A red-colored portal like the one of the Apothicon Servant can be found as a drop in Dead ops Arcade 2.
  • During the last step of the Apocalypse Averted Easter Egg, killing a Margwa can spawn a Dead Margwa Heart. It is not known to be used for anything, and seems to be a part of a cut feature from the map.
  • It was possible at one point for every player to have this weapon at once. It has since been patched.
  • Once the black hole has finished there is a P-06 firing sound at the end.
