In Wolfenstein Youngblood, finding the Elektrokraftwerk is required to open certain doors and crates, but determining how to get it is tough. The game doesn’t give you any clue as to the Elektrokraftwerk location until you’re right on top of it, so you’ll be scratching your head during the first part of the game when you run into doors that say “Requires Elektrokraftwerk.” Fortunately, the electric weapon isn’t that hard to get once you know where to look.
Where to find the Elektrokraftwerk in Wolfenstein Youngblood
To find the Elektrokraftwerk in Wolfenstein Youngblood you’ll need to head to Victory Boulevard. You need to make sure you’re at least level 20-25 because your destination is Brother 3. The easiest way to find your way there is to make “Raid Mission: Brother 3” your active mission. You’ll then need to fight or sneak your way to the entrance to Brother 3.
Here you’ll have to confront quite a few troops. In particular, there’s a Zerstorer here the takes a battering, no matter what level you are, and is the major obstacle to accessing Brother 3. It’s entirely possible to sneak in, and if you find it too tough you can find a less guarded way through the underground, but it’s Wolfenstein, so why not just try to go through the front door.
Once you open the large gate, Brother 3 will be in sight. You’ll have to make it to the entrance, though, which is easier said than done. Before you head left at the fork to go to Brother 3, make sure you open the metro entrance by heading right first and then down the steps. Examine the map, and you can now fast travel here whenever you want.
If you’ve upgraded your cloak, you can silently kill most of the guards, and then slip past the Zerstorer near the entrance to the building. Alternatively, you can just go in guns blazing. Just a warning, the Zerstorer is always high level here, so expect to face a level IV or V unit.
Once you’re in Brother 3, you can start your search for the Elektrokraftwerk in Wolfenstein Youngblood. The first part you just need to fight or sneak up the stairs. This part is east because there’s a ton of debris everywhere. Just use your cloak wisely and duck down when it needs to recharge, and you can take most of the enemies in this section out with stealth.
Once you make it into the building, just keep following the waypoint for Raid Mission: Brother 3. There’s not a lot of opposition here, and you shouldn’t have any issues making your way through here. Eventually, Abby will come in over the radio and tell you that you need to bypass the lockdown. She’ll also let you know that weapons R&D took place at Brother 3 and that you should look around for anything interesting.
If you follow the waypoint now, it’ll lead you right to the Elektrokraftwerk’s location. When you find the chamber it’s in, you’ll need to enter through a duct just below the catwalk. Once you’re in, you can grab it, and you’re good to go! The Elektrokraftwerk is unique in Wolfenstein Youngblood in that its attack arcs. Not only is it very powerful, but its discharge will race between enemies, making it the most effective gun against groups in the game. It also has several interesting upgrade options that let you choose a powerful charge beam, a shield, or extra arcing ability to add to the gun. Of course, another one of its primary features is the ability to overload tranformers and allow you to open doors and crates that would otherwise be inaccessible.
