As we informed you earlier, the Escalation Map Pack for Call of Duty: Black Ops is now available to download for the Xbox 360. Most of you will be playing the new Call of the Dead zombie map, and we have some details on how you can stop George Romero from troubling you.
After watching the fabulous cinematic introduction to the new characters and environment, you’ll once again find yourself all alone and the first objective will be how to get that power switch on to get the game moving.
However, Treyarch has really shaken things up this time, as you’ll have to contend with a zombified (or human) George Romero walking around the map the whole time, armed with what can only be described as a large electric hammer which he isn’t afraid to use.
Basically, he’ll start off in human form and start walking slow, but if you or any of your teammates shoot him, you’ll have to deal with the zombie version of Romero who will start running towards you and will aim to take you down. A few hits from him and it’s game over so you really don’t want that to happen. From what we can tell at the moment (we may be wrong), there are two ways to sort him out.
The first is with the V-R11 weapon which will turn him into his human form again, and the other way is to simply have him chase you into the water outside of the building. Both methods will then slow him down, and you’ll be able to deal with him much more easier. One mistake from your teammates though, will set him off again so you’ll have to be spot on with the mic communications to get to the higher levels.
It’s a really neat idea by Treyarch, and it’s a fresh problem that you’re going to have to deal with aside from the standard zombies. Let us know if you have found any other method to take down George Romero, or if you actually manage to kill him! – What happens? We’ve included a video below showing the process to stop him.
