Call of Duty Black Ops Zombies: Ten Tips For Survival

Are you still finding it hard to get past the first stage of dogs on Nazi Zombies on Call of Duty: Black Ops? If the answer is yes, then you might appreciate this ‘zombies beginners guide for noobs’ which we’ve found.

The guide has been compiled by the guys over at WeGotThisCovered, as they have provided 10 of their top tips which will increase your chances of survival against the undead.

Having had a read through their tips myself, I noticed that most of their tips are generally for Five, the second zombie map, but you’ll also find them useful for Kino Der Toten as well.

They advise gamers to not search for the mystery box straight away, as it could lead to an early exit if you don’t get a decent weapon. Instead they suggest just using one of the guns on the walls until the whole team has racked up enough points to get organised as a unit.

They also stress the importance of blocking up windows. While this is an obvious tip for most, they suggest that a lot of players just ignore blocking windows up once the map gets opened up more. They also have some other useful tips in relation to using microphones to communicate, as well as choosing the right moment to revive downed allies.

Check out their tips in the link above, then let us know if you have a worthy tip of your own in zombies. You may want to read our ‘best / highest level’ zombies thread, as users have already been giving a few tips on survival there.

In Toten…stay in the main room as long as you can. Then…open the door in the hallway. DO NOT open the upstairs door. Why? Because the hallway lines the zombies up…it gives you clear firing lines making it 10x easier. By opening the next doorway… the Zombies can only attack you 3 ways…coming down the hallway and the 2 doors to each side. Even if you fail to repair the doors in the main room…you still only have to protect 3 directions. Solo…I've made it to level 38 and with a partner level 36 going this way. Playing online…everyone opens… Read more »

Hold on to the first gun, use the upstairs route and buy the MP40, stay in the MP40 room until you get dogs. Once you finish the dog round go on stage, don't turn power on until 2 more rounds. Then pack a punch your pistol and you have dual grenade launchers. NOTE! Don't buy any mystery box weapons until you have the pack a punched gun and jeggernog

Stay in first room til round 3 or 4 as long a all players have more than 1500. DO NOT BUY ANY GUNS!!!!!!!! Two ppl must have more than 3000 tho. Run to stakeout room and buy stakeout. One person buy MP40. Stay til after dogs then turn power on. Get weapons from mystery box. stay til 10 then go out side. take a revive. DO NOT CAMP NEXT TO GATE!!! YOU WON'T HAVE ENOUGH AMMO. If you can buy AK74u get it. V. useful if you only have shotguns, Specials, snipers, or rocket launchers. Run around killing zombies, basically… Read more »

In “five” I personally find it easiest to stay on lvl 1 until round 5-6. Then from there if u have a 4 man team go to lvl 2 but dont open any doors. There r only 4 windows so 1 man per window. There is a MP5K and a PM63 so u should be fine on guns. Grab ammo in between rounds and survive till round 8-9. At that time make a crawler and ur team should have plenty of points. Turn on the power and choose either 3 defence strategies. Hold the pack-a-punch room (2 in the room… Read more »

How do you even get pack a punk?Or aktivate the telaporter?I can barely make it to round seven even with three Qwik rivives.i just run around and open all the doors.

my best way so far is to first fight the zombies in the main room untill u fight the dogs once done fight the next round of zombies then save one once u have done this go to the upstais room and open that door first if theres no mystery box then go the other way DO NOT OPEN THE DOOR TO THE TURRET ROOM keep looking for the box once found each player should have enough points for a decent weapon now go bk to the first room you opened and get into the back now then the pearson… Read more »

In level 1 shoot zombie 6 times (no headshots!!!) and then knife. The reason for this is to get as many points as possible early. Level 2 use remaining pistol rounds on zombie, then knife. Buy M14. Level 2 shoot 1X with M14, then knife. Level 3 shoot 2X with M14 then knife. Level 4 shoot 3X then knife. If you happen to get maxammo, shoot as much as possible with pistol then knife. The goal of this is to rack up some points to improve your situation. 2X score is a blessing if you get it with alot of… Read more »

Now then, as you are running the route, you want to kill a zombie or two that is in front of you, but don't worry about them too much. Turn around every now and then, and you will notice a GREAT train of zombies following you. I suggest using the MP40 to stack points ,and just fire an entire magazine into the train. Once empty, turn around, run, and reload. Once reloaded and a safe distance away, turn around and do it again. Your points will increase faster than our debts to China, I assure you! Another important concept is… Read more »

My name on Xbox is Don Abracadabra. I have solo'ed Kino Der Toten to Round 30. I had very lucky drops from the mystery box. First 3 hits, I recieved ray gun, thunder gun, and monkey bombs. From then on, I just ran what is commonly referred to as "the route." Running "the route" is the best chance of survival I have found. "The route" would be the path which is from the lobby to the first room upstairs, then from their to the MP40 and Stakeout room, next from there to the dressing room, from there to the stage,… Read more »

Now you have a choice, you are left with 2 good places to hold, if you carry on through to the next closed door you will have 1 window to cover and a front door, this can be held until 20+ depending on luck and is a nice little place to hold but if you choose to fall back further there is another place to hold with one window but instead of a cramped door way with all the zombies coming through you have a nice open space which still funnels them but gives your team much clearer shots, some… Read more »

Simple strategy to make it to 20+. Stay in the first room till level 3-6 depending on dogs using only the knife until 4+, once the lowest scoring person has 5000+, open the first door under the stairs in the first room AND NO MORE THAT WAY, then open your way around to the stage, post 1 person on each window and the best equiped 2 on the front door, once you all have a reasonable amount of points save one zombie when you are happy with your points, you will need a spare 2500 points, pack-a-punch and get power… Read more »

Yo, I made it to level 42 with 2 players. Just stay in the first room till round 5, getting as many points as possible, after that, find the gun box. Get decent weapons before turning on power. Soon as powers on, get juggernoug, and stay in the power room. Once you get many after you, run through the doors, and use traps, saves ammo, and kills a lot of zombies. Thundergun is almost a nessicty for levels 30 and above. Clears paths while evading, and kills massive amounts of zombies. Ray gun is helpful 2, shoot their legs and… Read more »

For some reason me and my brother keep lossing because everytime one of us dies 15 or 16 of those undead fuckers come out what are we doing wrong! 1.We're organized 2.We always use either our knives or high powered rifles or shotguns in the first 6 rounds 3.We always make it to the generator

I’ve only played with two people and gotten to round 31. the strategy is to open the door in the top room and hold them off there. Post 1 person at the window and one person with the best weapon will hold off the front while the other helps when you need to reload or get overwhelmed. after you have the opportunity to save one at about round 10 turn the power on and use that to help hold off the zombies by turning on the force field. Just remember to hit the box until you get good enough weapons… Read more »

Once you have the power on, and are posted up at the stage, its good to leave a crawler, get organized, and then link the core that you first spawn on in the beginning with the teleporter. Then get situated in the teleporter and kill the crawler. Now wait for the first wave of zombies and just as they get to be overwhelming teleport. Now you can throw grenades out the window and basically slaughter the first half of that rounds zombies. Also, you can buy grenades up there on the wall. Now after 30 seconds the teleporter will send… Read more »

i usually start by playing the first 4 or 5 rounds in the main starting room. after i have money, i save one zombie and make our way to the theater. once you get there, you can post up one person on the back window, one person on the side window, and two people with the better weapons on the front double doors. DO NOT TURN ON THE POWER YET. also, do not open the small steel door at the back of the stage. it makes things harder. Play a few rounds in this room, i usually go to round… Read more »

useful for Kino Der Toten all are wrong.. there is a system.. First get as many points as you can in the first 5 to 6 levels. Go up the stairs and open all the doors leading to the power switch which opens the door that brings you back to where you started. Now you have a circle to run around and kill zombies. A combination of using the teleporter, Getting all of the drinks, and the mystery box while still having a gun that you can used off the wall ( because you will run out of ammo), and… Read more »
