The Entangler is a special wonder weapon featured in the Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Zombies mode. It appears in all of the Ghosts 'N Skulls machines and can also be used outside of the machines in The Beast From Beyond, where it plays a pivotal role in the map's main easter egg.
The Entangler is used primarly in the Ghosts 'N Skulls machines to capture ghosts and cubes and later throw them at the skulls. To capture one of these, the player must aim at a ghost or cube with the Entangler and hold the fire button. It will send a beam to the object before it pulls it to the player. Releasing the fire button will launch the object depending on where the player is looking.
To unlock it in The Beast From Beyond, the player must have collected the second skull for Skullbreaker. After it is obtained, the Entangler will spawn in the center of the Cargo Bay in front of Trail Blazers. As a special weapon which can be equipped by pressing left on the D-Pad, the player can use the Entangler to grab ahold of zombies, turning them into ghosts. Once captured, they can be launched at other zombies to kill them.
The Entangler is used during the map's main easter egg a few times. It is used to obtain two of the four floppy disks for N31L, open the room closed off by the two forcefields, obtain the button from the wall within Wyler's theater and using it to rip out N31L's head from the control panel and also bring him to the Pack-a-Punch Machine. It also can be used to obtain the Brute's head for the Alien Fuses and the Turnstile piece from the dumpster by the KBS Longbow. With it, the player can use the time machine by the Pack-a-Punch portal and set it to the date Shaolin Shuffle is set in. Once the rift to the past is open, the player will have a couple of minutes to grab the Turnstile piece with the Entangler and launch it into the rift.
How to Obtain:
You need the second skull from Ghosts 'N Skulls. The first Skull is found inside an electric box that can spawn in three separated places.
- Near the Bombstoppers at the Ops Center (at the wall outside of the computer room leading outside)
- At the Medical Bay, by the ladder leading to Blue Bolts and the first piece of the bridge.
- At the Cargo Room, look to the right from the door that you enter, by the wall, you can see the box.
Simply hit the box with OSA's grenade or any explosive then shoot the Skull when it is possible.
The second Skull is at the Cargo Station. Around the room, you may find some red X marks on the ground. Stay still inside one of them. A green area will appear beneath you and the Skull will start rising and zombies will appear, trying to take you down. They work like normal round zombies and will give drops and points. Hold your position for something about 30 seconds until the Skull leaves the center of the area and go to some point where you can pick it. Be careful, the Skull can disappear. If so, you can try again at the next round. Picking it will make the Entangler appear by the place where the Skull was. Remember that its damage is very low and you should not rely on it to kill anything.
