Call of Duty Ray Gun replica going for a whopping $600 has fans divided

Activision surprised the Call of Duty community by announcing a replica Ray Gun, but an expensive price tag has scared some fans away.

There hasn’t been much to celebrate as a Call of Duty zombies fan of late. Community members flamed Treyarch for a “dumpster fire” addition to the franchise in Call of Duty Vanguard. The developers caught flack for removing round-based gameplay and classic features.

Treyarch heard the criticism and wrapped up the game’s life cycle on a high note, adding three new round-based maps. However, Modern Warfare 2 does not feature a zombies game mode, and we don’t know if Sledgehammer Games plans on developing zombies for CoD 2023.

Zombies fans finally received some much-needed reprieve when Activision revealed a replica Ray Gun weapon, but it comes at a price.

The Ray Gun is an iconic CoD zombies weapon that has appeared in all seven series entries.

On March 27, Activision released a $600 Ray Gun Statue Replica on the Call of Duty Shop. The item is currently available for pre-order and begins shipping in June. The Ray Guns has built-in LED lights and a unique Mystery Box mount.

Community members expressed a mixture of excitement and frustration over Activision’s announcement.

One fan responded: “Seen better ones for cheaper.” Several community members argued that $250-$300 would have been a much more reasonable price, especially since plenty of replica Ray Guns on Etsy and other websites already exist.

A second zombies fans joked: “It better shoot for that price.

Despite an absorbent price tag, other community members disagreed and were tempted to splurge.

Summarizing it perfectly, a third fan added: “Man, I need this.”

For any passionate zombies fans out there, it will be hard to turn down the opportunity of owning a Ray Gun, but $600 is certainly nothing to scoff at for any consumer.
