An iconic staple of Call of Duty Zombies, the Juggernog machine has woven itself into the hearts of players worldwide. Its enduring popularity has even inspired one dedicated fan to transform their PlayStation 5 into a tribute to this classic in-game vending machine. The Juggernog machine made its debut in the Zombies game mode of Call of Duty: World at War, and since then, it has evolved into a beloved feature throughout the Call of Duty franchise.
The roots of Call of Duty Zombies‘ Juggernog can be traced back to the Juggernaut perk in Call of Duty: World at War’s multiplayer mode. Originally introduced as one of four original Perk-a-Cola upgrades, Juggernog has firmly entrenched itself in the Black Ops series. It’s not just a perk; it’s a lifeline for many players, providing the extra health needed to survive the relentless undead hordes.
In a heartwarming display of fan dedication, a Call of Duty enthusiast and PlayStation aficionado known as IRON-EDGE-TITAN shared a remarkable creation – a customized Juggernog-themed PlayStation 5. Armed with spare PS5 panels and a creative spirit, they embarked on a project that would turn heads. Using spray paint and meticulous detailing with POSCA paint pens, they transformed the PS5 panels into a faithful replica of the classic Juggernog vending machine.
The design is nothing short of impressive. The upper half of the panels boasts a faded yellow hue, while the lower section mimics the tarnished red of vintage Coca-Cola machines, which the Juggernog design pays homage to. Front and center on the front panel is a miniature Juggernog vending machine, complete with coin return and item drop slots. Above this charming recreation, the words “Drink Jugger-Nog” are elegantly rendered in a retro font, capturing the essence of a bygone era. Accompanying phrases like “That’s a good nog” and “Made with real eggs” contribute to the authentic vending machine aesthetic. To crown this masterpiece, a circular emblem featuring a red cross and bullet sits atop the PS5, bringing the Juggernog console concept to life.
Call of Duty enthusiasts have showered praise upon this customized PS5. The meticulous paintwork and nostalgic design have captured the hearts of fans, evoking a sense of fond nostalgia. IRON-EDGE-TITAN, the mastermind behind this creation, dedicated approximately 30 hours to this project—a true testament to their deep affection for the Juggernog machine and the Call of Duty universe.
