The white area, Threat Level 1, is home typically to Uncommon or Rare (Green or Blue) weapons you can buy on the cheap — around 1000-2000 Essence. As you go further inward, the value and rarity of the weapons you’ll find increase, but the expectation is that if you’ve gotten that far, you’ve got some Essence saved up.

These are best kept as a backup option and to consult when you’re in the surrounding area. With regions of the map like Popov Power and Zaravan City being saturated with lots of these Wall Buy locations in MW3, this can come in clutch when you’ve not found a weapon suitable enough for your enhancements, or don’t feel like shelling out 5000 Essence at a Pack-a-Punch machine.

Best Locations to Find Wall Buys in Call of Duty MWZ

The best location I’ve found for Wall Buys is at the very top of the map, around tile F1. There are six different Wall Buy weapon opportunities in the surrounding area, giving you plenty of choice. This spot is especially useful for Daily and Story Missions where you don’t want to be stuck with a shoddy pistol for the rest of the match.

If you spawned at the bottom of Urzikstan, then the bottom left corner, around D9, has a few walls if you’re looking for a mighty weapon. There’s also a nearby Buy Station if you’re low on essence.

Wall Buy weapons have been a staple for as long as Zombies mode has been in COD, with the first instance found in the Nocht der Untoten map in Call of Duty: World at War. Little did Treyarch know at the time just how influential this mode would soon become.
