Subsurface Resonator model BOII

The Subsurface Resonator is a buildable in Buried and Borough for Call of Duty: Black Ops II. It requires a Turbine to function; it blasts sound that kills zombies and distorts the screen. On zombies at a further distance, it will simply knock them back.

The Subsurface Resonator is needed to get the Death From Below achievement, as well as playing a key role on the Maxis side of the easter egg Mined Games.
