COD Black Ops Zombies: Cheats and Glitches – Users Confess

By Alan Ng - Mar 8, 2011

Recently we asked you if you were a keen user of the various ‘cheat’ codes and glitches in the Zombie Mode portion of Call of Duty: Black Ops, and we’re pleased to say that the results are now in.

For those of you who missed it, we asked you the simple question of if you had used codes for the game, and of a total 1,306 users polled so far, 71% of you admitted that you did use codes, while 29% of Black Ops players said they didn’t.

We can understand gamers voting to get the code to get the second zombie map quickly, but what about the Intel code? Do you believe that it spoils a large part of the single player experience or not?

As for glitches, there are a fair amount of them available in Black Ops, and they involve things like acquiring an unlimited Death Machine weapon with three guns, killing the Pentagon thief with one bullet and becoming ‘invincible’ by boosting with team mates.

Do the results prove that cheating is a normal practise in games? Or do you think the majority of votes was made up of users just wanting to get the ‘Five’ map without completing Single-Player mode? Let us know your thoughts on this.

  • ethan

    how do you get dead ops and the maps for the wii

  • adam

    the best way to rack up points is to let in the zombies on the first few rounds we usually do up to about level 5 then but you might want to shoot a couple rounds then knife them. when you let them in you will get perks of all sorts and including max ammo. once you get over whelmed go to the up stairs and open the next two doors and grab the stakeout and the MP40 and you can usually get through round 20 with just those two. then get the juggernaut. once you turn on the power you can should use the teleporter in the begging of each round. i have gotten to just about level 60 after upgrading the ray gun. and right around level 33 you stop getting ammo so your best bet is to get knocked down and be set up by the teleporter and upgrade the pistol. this has worked for me very well.

  • dukeflobot

    this is the best game it gives the weeker minds nightmares and the stronger minded a new reason to be pissed off when your connection is broken damn you microsoft get better servers bitches

  • henry

    i berly got to round 83 last night on kino… and my monkey balls helped me in the most part of the game. and also stare at the rock in the the back (it makes a wierd ring and then it goes away) and hold x and he should say "ohh i found a rock". their going to be 2 more rocks u have to find. once u find all 3. a song pops out and it gets u pump.

  • adam

    highist round in black ops zombies on the level kino is 35

    glitch in zombies: wen u run out of monkey bombs throw a grenade and run over it and hold L2 then u will get a monkey bomb in ur hand. ( be careful though u must have throw all ur monkey bombs because it if u try it its like throwing a normal monkey bomb, and u must have gotten monkey bombs from the random box). best zombie game ever

  • Black ops specialist

    As for codes there is heaps 3arc unlock zork doa and if you look up the username and password you cn login to the computer as hudson and get 2 free black ops gamertags

    Zombies strategy:(3-4 players)stab for first to rounds then shoot as many times as you can but only with ur pistol don’t buy guns from the first room go upstairs and open next 2 doors everyone buys stakeout and stays there till dogs cum then open next 2 doors have to people with the best guns watch the door you came through and one person on each of the two other windows on the stage when there is to many zombies to handle open the next door at the other end of the stage and every one buys claymores on their way then go to where the wire fence is and have three people watch the door you came through and one person on the window plus at the start of every round everyone places their two claymores in the section there standing in so if there’s two Many zombies open the gate behind you and the claymores will kill most of the zombies then you will have to open all doors and run around and try to stay alive if you still want to camp there’s a stop where the juggernog is where the zombies can only get u by runing in front of you p.s. Your free to buy perks or upgrade weapons at any time. I have gotten to round 46 with this method and there’s no cheating or glitches invlolved but if won’t them just ask in a comment below this

  • cathal

    wat i do is for the 1st to the 4th round shoot all the zombie in the leg about 6 time then stab the every point counts

  • How do you get unlimited ammo??

  • cadi

    a glitch for 5 and kino is that have 1 person lay down in a corner, and a nother person run and jump on top of them, youll need someone to revive them, and a baby should laugh, if the baby laughs the double points, insta kill, and stuff will all come out faster, and easier. MUST HAVE ATLEAST 3 PLAYERS. 🙂

    ANOTHER one is to get the RAY GUN : lay down in front of the mysery box where you can see inbetween the two bricks its layin on, shoot 3 times in between the bricks, then 3 times in the middle of the open top lid, youll get the pistol, then do it again and youll get the ray gun, works best in 5.

  • boo


  • yes man

    where is the power switch?

    • cathal

      in the theater

  • winxy

    as this will controll the flow of zombies that come to the others once the 4th person has grouped them they do a full lap tacking them past the room under the stairs where you all let rip with frags and monkeys guns whatever really altho you do want to try to keep the monkys for sticky moments o once the power is on link the telaporter to the pad in the first room then you can go to the packapuncher to upgred your guns it will cost you 5k tho but well worth it hope this helps we got to round 32 good luck mate if you are on ps3 add me you will be more then welcome to join me and my guys tag is winxy1499

  • winxy

    but if you want to camp down the room under the stairs is a good start we have done this 3 in that room 2 on windows one on the door the others can help if it gets a bit tasty the 4th person is on the stage running round in small laps

  • jonathan

    stay in the main room for 4 levels then open the dore down stairs because their is only 2 windows.

  • Ryan

    wtf i cant get past level 5 i need cheats tips anything

    • winxy

      first round shoot the zombies 6 times in the stomch then stab them for max points the next round is 8 then stab if you let them come through the window you are more likely to get max ammo and others like nuke x2 and insta kill. if you stay in the main room till round 4 then make your way to the mp40 room (up the stairs through the door then the next one and go right to the bottom right hand side get the mp40 that is the first gun we buy) get the dog round over with get max ammo (if you all stay at the speedy reload for dog should be ok) then we stay there for 2 more rounds one at the top of the stairs at the door way another at the window at the top and the other 2 at the bottom watching the windows down there. then move to the stage turn on the power this dose meen you will get the gas zombies but now you have opened up half the map you could start to run laps round that half killing as you go try to leave cralwers at the end of each round as this gives you time to find the box to get better guns and open up the rest of the map as for glitches i know that almost all have been patched

    • andrew

  • Andrew

    Well. I really do not think the codes on the computer are not cheating. Well. Except for the intel. I understand the Nazi zombies portion is okay, because if you buy the game to play Nazi Zombies. Then use the cheat codes. I just prefer that hackers only hack offline and cheaters only glitch or cheat offline. Only because online gameplay Is supposed to show how legit you are. while offline gameplay is supposed to be for entertainment purposes.



    This cheat code on the computer enables all intel to be gathered but then one achievement is locked away from you.


    This cheat code enables all Nazi Zombie levels.

      hey i know a glitch on Kino Der Toten on the stairs by the up stairs door one person has to kneel down and the other has to jump onto the person that is kneeling down and the 3rd person has to revive you and the other person.

    stabbie stab stab the first two to three rounds of guys and you get mad points

    • yhh

      i do that

    • dukeflobot

      bust in the theatre as soon as possible the boards on the stairs keep the dogs away and the bowie knife destroys points till ten on zombies and 15 on nova monkeys

    • you should shoot them like 5 times for each round and them stab them once, you get more points then just stabbing coz its only 130 points when you kill them, 10 the other times.
