How to craft schematics in MW3 zombies?

To craft in MW3 zombies, head into your Rucksack, select Schematic Crafting from the options, and choose the Schematic you want to craft. Keep in mind that before you can start crafting schematics, you’ll need to collect the plan you want in a match first. You’ll also need to exfil with it successfully in order to access it in your Rucksack, so make sure to extract the plan you’re looking for as soon as you find it.

Once you’ve crafted a schematic, you’ll be able to use the item you made in the next match you drop into if you decide to bring it with you. You’ll have to remember, though, that each crafted piece of equipment you bring into a match has a designated cooldown, meaning you won’t be able to use it until after a certain amount of time has elapsed.

However, Wonder Weapons, such as the Ray Gun and the Wunderwaffe DG-2, take 48 hours to cool down, meaning you can’t use these powerful weapons for two whole days.
