Black Ops Zombies: Ascension Map Tips / Strategy Guide

Now that the Call of Duty: Black Ops First Strike Map Pack has hit Xbox Live people are finally battling their way through the Ascension zombie map, recently whilst browsing YouTube I came across a great guide which may well help you reach level 59 without the aid of your friends.

We have embedded the tutorial video at the end of this post, the video was put together by a YouTube user with the alias “HDJaGGe”, if you love your zombies you should perhaps subscribe to his channel, he has killed over 1 million zombies on Ascension already (see here).

In the video HDJaGGe teaches you some great tactics which allow you to get the most points from each kill, when you start off you will be using the M1911 when using this gun you should use the 5 shot tactic, this basically means you shoot the zombie 5 times with the pistol and then finish him off with a melee attack, this ensures that you get the most points for each kill. When you reach level 2 you must use the 8 shot tactics, which is pretty self-explanatory.

The video shows you what guns to buy, tactics to use and what route to take, it also shows you how to combat the red-eyed monkeys and also suggests that you should try to protect the juggernaut perk more than any other. As you get further into Ascension there is one very important tactic which herds the zombies up whilst they are chasing you, this allows you to easily shoot at a concentrated group of zombies (see image above) and if you run out of ammo there is a path you can take to buy the MP5.

To be honest it is much easier to follow the video embedded below than explain the many different tactics and when you should perform them, therefore watch it below, give it a try and come back and let us know if it worked for you, good luck.

What level did this video help you to reach?

the strategy i used was build up points for the first 3 rounds then only open the top door never open the door downstairs next to quick revive then once the top door is open buy the mp5 only and stay near flopper and build up on points for about 4 rounds and never open any doors just build up on points then when everyone has enough points open up the fence near mp5 and from there on buy the doors from there and get mystery box weapons and turn power on then open the door where juggernog is and… Read more »

hey gotta say sounds like a great strategy. the hardest part of implementing your entire strategy is either surviving untill you get the zues gun or just a person inability to run the crescent moons without dying, overall though very nice.
