COD Black Ops Zombies: Your Best / Highest Level So far?

By Alan Ng - Nov 11, 2010

If you were a fan of the zombie mode in Call of Duty: World at War, then the chances are that you’re already playing the new zombie mode in Black Ops more than the main multiplayer mode.

If you are one of these gamers, then we would like to hear your progress on zombies so far, either on the Kino Der Toten, or Five zombie maps – how far have you managed to get?

From my brief experience so far, it seems as if zombies this time around are much harder, probably because after the first round of dogs, you start getting crawler zombies which are harder to kill, harder to spot, and they also seem to take great pleasure from distracting you from the rest of zombies running towards you.

Personally, I havent got too far with zombies yet, only around level 13-14 since most of the time was spent figuring out the map and the countless routes and doors to open – I’m sure you have managed a lot better with your friends.

Just like World at War, it seems almost impossible to get to the later rounds of zombies unless you have a headset and are communicating with friends, otherwise it just leads to chaos.

Are you loving zombies so far or getting bored of it? Let us know your highest levels so far, and any tips you might have for others.

  • Mr Connerton

    Played system link with four people, got the uptime set up, four rayguns, and 1 of each special. Mad it to fifty and broke it. Couldn’t be defeated, so we got bored. The guy that’s says he made it to 999 is full of it. That would take tooooo much time, there is no way I believe that.

  • Just4495

    Went to 18 when two people quit and then 24 with the one who didnt quit on kino

  • Mrsimmo96

    i got to round 68 on kino then fell asleep in the middle of it

  • DrEdwardR

    i always play coop, got to 62 on kino by running big laps together, many traps, thundergun and punched crossbow. 54 on cotd by running circles and combining both groups from about 30 and use the scavenger, punched vr11 and punched crossbow. got to 57(top 20) on shangri la with combining groups and babygun them from 30 on. usually we suicide at one time because of too much time or connection…kino 16hrs, cotd 15hrs, shangri la 18hrs played the other maps too, but highscore list messed them up…

    Round 22 is the highest i’ve made it, with a Pack a Punched HK and a Spas12. I camp out in the alley as long as I can, then get a crawler, turn on the power, arm the teleporter, get Jug, and get started. I always stand behind the turret gun, wait til they start coming, turn it on, then dive in the teleporter. Go up to the projector room, and throw as many grenades as possible, since you can buy them off the wall. Hopefully, you’ll have monkey bombs by then. After you leave the projector room, you’ll respawn in the lobby. Start chucking grenades at the door separating you and the theatre, then raise hell with your weapon at the door. When they get in, run upstairs and go through the room, hopefully not too far ahead of the zombies, and hit the trap. Then, follow the rooms back to the theatre, and start all over, making sure to rearm the teleporter. I could have done a lot better, but got stuck in a corner. Had a quick-revive, but lost my Jug, so I was screwed. So, there you go.

  • Gaetan

    i made it to round 31 on ascension with 2 people me and my friend when round 30 came i died my friend lived that round he had the thunder gun and the ray gun at round 31 i came back i had no guns i went to the box right away and got a bad gun then my friend died so i run and bought the ak74u and went on the lander and lived for 15 mins and then they trap me   

  • Roving_Stranger

    Round 28 on Kino, i got pretty bored and ran out of ammo after that :I.

    My strategy goes like this. I always buy the M14 for when i get swarmed in a later round. I knife every zombe at the window up to round 3 (if they get through use your M1911). After round 3 i buy Quick Revive because i know i will leave soon. When i get swarmed i run up the stairs and use the M14 to headshot large groups of zombies. Right before they reach me i open the door and go crazy with the M14 and try to use up all of its ammo. I run straight to the next area and open the door, and then buy the MP40 (best SMG in my opinion). Getting headshots is so easy and it has ALOT of ammo (32/192). After getting around 6000 points i open both doors to the stage, turn the power on, and make a mad dash to Juggernog. After that i run laps around the area of doors i open and buy speed cola. After that, its just running laps and survivng (dont forget to Pack-A-Punch your guns!) the zombies.
    ME and my bro tried it, and it worked pretty good on split screen Round 18 ( could have gone farther but we had to eat T^T).

  • Macaraca

    cooool lol ;D

  • Amir Saleem

    i went to round 10 in kino heres 2 very ueful tips 1st watch ur back 2nd when theres a bunch of zombies just throw a grende, most of them dies use also transporter if u need it the first 3 rounds just use pistol and knife then after u finish the 3 rounds open the next 2 doors upstairs then buy thee stake out shotgun and the other mchine gun use machine gun on zombies and stakeout shotgun on dogs there are 8 dogs and they die all by 8 bullets of stakeout (solo) and when u have 3000 u open the next 2 doors then now just use the teleporter and myestry box hope i helped (solo)

  • Guard

    To kill the pentagon thief you want to shoot him when he comes after you and when he's close to taking away your weapon pull out a secondary weapon that you dont really like.Continue to shoot him and he'll eventually drop max ammo,fire sale,or the pack a punch perk that reduces the price of it to 1000(From 5000).Best way to survive in 5 is to rack up points in war room up to level 10 then move on to turn on power get jugger nog which increases health,also try not to chase after the mystery box so quickly just use the weapons if the walls.

  • kid

    i have also noticed that crawlers aren’t always a part of the after-dog level, rather after you turn on the power, which the noise “wakes them up” so to speak.

  • Louis

  • Mike

    Level 39 Kino Der Toten 2 people, I had the ray gun, cross bow, monkeys, and quick reload, and my friend had ray gun monkeys, and thundergun all upgraded and all four drinks, we utilize all the traps, mainly the firepit then run to the teleporter i think we killed over 1600 zombies.

  • Jazman

    Playing with two people is much better than 3-4 people unless you have a sure fire plan First with two people each guard two doors until round 3-4 then open the door to the downstairs door grab the mpl then save up enough money to get to the stakeout and buy it and stay there until you can open the next two doors and upgrade if there is a mystery box in the dressing room DON’T get it unless you have a crawler-and just keep running around and try to get a upgraded ray gun and thunder gun. I got to level 29 but we ran out of ammo. Cjaz12

  • mike

    I got to level 35 solo ran

    Out of ammo,

  • Jordan

    level 27 kino der toten just got it

  • That_Zombie_Guy

    So far am sitting at level 43 solo on Kino Der Toten. Had to go to sleep so it is paused and I will continue after work. Have screen shot of me at 42 in projection room. I have monkey, Zeus Cannon and MP40 with ALL perks. Sitting at 150,000 points on screen right now. All I do is spray the entire ammo supply into horde behind me, then run and do traps, pick up ammo, repeat on stage ammo emptying, then hop in the teleporter for some free zombie kills. Run MP40 lap with traps again and cluster them on stage again then empty ammo. Use Zeus Cannon to get out of tight spots while running level and to kill dogs quick and easy for max ammo. Starting to get a bit annoying though cause seriously the only thing that kills anythign is the traps and teleporter. Just takes a while to finish each level but am going to keep going just to be bale to get the final screen shot where it says NAME, KILLS, POINTS, HEADSHOTS and LEVEL. Just for proof. EVERYONE should have a screenshot of their level WITH their name if they want to say that they go super high in levels. See how far I can go.

  • zombie beast 24

  • Rich

    got to round 87 on Kino Der Toten. With two people offline so it isn't on leader board so that absolutely sucks. But it gets so boring after a whole night of playing it and we fell asleep lol. At about 60 it was like 20 shots from PaPed Ray Gun to kill one zombie insane. So gods know wat it would be at 90

    level 28…only managed it with the zeus gun [upgraded thundergun], after it ran of ammo then it was game over, plus me and my mate had a ray gun each. wouldve made it to level 30 if he had just turned on the turret…!

  • Skip

    I can steady make it to level 28 29 in kino der toten. U absolutely need a ray gun form the gun box upgraded and all the perks. Speed cola juggernaut n such. Doesn't hurt to have a thunder gun upgraded too. Link the pads open all the door and continuously start a round by teleporting up n throwin grenades down. The. When back run a complete circle n kill everyone. Turn on a turret gun before u teleport in the later rounds

  • Guest

    round 41
    2 people
    left a crawler every round,linked teleporter and tried mystery box
    you run around the map on the right side and use the thundergun to kill them all when they are in a straight line

  • Rob

    Round 59 solo. The best way is to just run around the map then turn around with an auto gun and pop the heads off

  • abdul

    alright so il show you guys a strategy guide for five in the first and second level use ur pistol to rack up points start by shooting 6 times in the chest then knife at lvl3 ur gonna get forced to open up the door and get the smg stay in the elevator until u think u cant hold them back any more then u should have about 3000 points or more then quickly buy mp5k then go to the lower lvl clearing debris then u should see the place were the elevator is but if u turn right and walk there u will see another debris to be cleared (DONT FORGET GO RIGHT)then turn left and u will see a corner the (left one) then stay there and camp and zombies will come at u in on line only u should have the MPL and MP5K stay in that corner for a little time to create a crawler then turn the power and and get perks find the random box use it and upgrade ur weapon the go back and camp and i will repeat the zombies will come at u in ONE LINE STRAIGHTLY AT THE OTHER CORNER NEAR THE DEBRIS.
    i hoped u liked my guide and i will upload more guides soon this is bloodshot signing out

  • steadiedbow8

    lvl 28 kino der toten solo.stay in lobby using knife on first and second rounds keep barricades up at the end of second round buy the m14 and on the 3rd shoot them in the head with the m14 notice they still walk a little bit quickly knife them for 130 points :) then round 4 run around just kill the faster zombies and as many of hte others until your comfortable moving around them then line them up and use your pistol they take ALOT of bullets without dying and bulelts do penetrate so one shot can aqual 60 poiints or more use around 20 shots then start knifing by the end fo round 4 i usually have 6 to 7 thousand points maybe a little more round 4 is simple kill quickly headshots knife when possible keep one alive use some grenades keep one slow half crawler zombie alive then make your way down to the left towards the alley just keep opening doors and follow it to the theatre turn on the power use the mystery box your m14 can still be used until round 9 or 10 so use it untiul its out of ammo run aroudn theatre elt them spawn in then make your way to the teleporter toss some grenades or make your way to the lobby and blast them save money and get all the perks and try to get the thundergrom and ray gun or one or the other and one of the big machine guns like the rpk or hk21 will do nicely expecially if you have the upgraded thundergrom ( zeus cannon) and the monkey dudes from the crate i usually get the revive perk then the juggernaut perk then double tap then speed cola so by round 12 i have all the perks and usually have some descent weapons.80% of surviving is your ability to move around and not get backed into a corner or let yourself get surrounded learn the level know where everything and you should get to level 20 with ease

  • Ryan

    The best solo I have achieved is Level 41 in Kino Der Toten. It took almost 3 hours. It does help if you have the ray gun.
