Call of the Dead Zombies Secrets: How to Kill George Romero

Yesterday we gave you a mini tutorial on how to ‘stop’ George Romero temporarily when playing the new Call of the Dead zombie map on Call of Duty: Black Ops, but now we have details and video evidence on how you can actually kill him and stop him coming back for a while.

This method is totally different to the ones we mentioned yesterday, and if you manage to take him down, you’ll actually be rewarded by Treyarch with some generous goodies.

From what we can see, players will need to have the Scavenger sniper rifle menu, and will need to once again lure him into the water outside of the building (Although it does work with other weapons). Once you have him there, you need to shoot a metal plate with the scavenger and have it explode next to Romero to slow him down. Once you’ve done this, keep blasting away at him until he moves closer to you.

Repeat the process over and over again and you’ll soon take him down. Once you have done it, he will retreat back into the water, and you’ll be rewarded with a new perk, a death machine powerup and also the ‘Quiet on the Set’ Achievement! Not too bad at all.

We’ve heard that he does still come back, but it won’t be straight away. We’re also hearing whispers that you can take him down more easily with an pack-a-punched V-R11 weapon, but doing so won’t get you the powerups and achievement. We’ve included two videos below both showing how to kill Romero, skip to 3.25 in the longer video to get to the action.

If you have taken down Romero, let us know how you did it, and if the steps mentioned above is the best way to do it, or if you’ve found a quicker way to kill him and still get the stuff. Look forward to more Call of the Dead secrets soon.

call of duty black ops 2 who knows about Samuel being a zombie and eating one. and who is Samantha father is it maxis or tank Dempsey i think it might be tank Dempsey because James c burns told us in the bus trailer who does she sound like she loved killing zombies and who is she like from black ops 1 and she was like dempsy plus i think there also has been two videos about this. the original zombies killer are stuck on moon and they destroyed the earth that’s when i thought tank Dempsey and his crew… Read more »

I knifed him with the sickle. It takes awhile tho. About 250 hits. About 85 stabs per his health level. Sometimes Samantha steals the perks and puts them in another pool.

I’ve killed George about 6 times now. Alot of scavenger, ray gun and death machines! He drops a random perk bottle and a death machine! HOWEVER the past 2 times I killed him he didn’t drop anything and I herd that evil laugh that u hear when u get the bear out the random weapon box! And I didn’t use vr11 on him! Alot of time and ammo wasted!

i got the commando and galil from the random box, and just kept reloading the mp5 when i got a chance. the only other thing that really helped me was the fact that i got 2 death machines,

I killed george using the scavenger (upgraded) my mates used 2 upgraded ray guns . After the ray guns where empty they uses there mustang and sally’s . As i said before i used the upgraded scavenger . And we killed him with all of our ammo . The ray guns where empty and the mustang &sally’s where empty also . My scavenger had only 5 ammo left . So its hard to kill him

Do NOT use the Vr11 and shoot him with any gun you have. you will know when hes starting to die when his spotlight changes color. first is blue=max health. blinking yellow and blue= half dead. and when slowly blinkin yellow= low health. after that keep shooting. MAKE SURE TO MAKE CRAWLERS AND HAVE A LOAD
ps it is a b**** to kill him

I've killed George without any upgraded guns on solo. You just have to shoot him a LOT. Also, if you complete the easter egg and get the Wonderwaffe first, once you kill George you will be rewarded the Wonderwaffe again. Hope this helps.

you can kill George with almost anything I am fairly sure. My friends sat there shooting at him with ray guns while I was just knifing him and we are pretty sure he almost died but we got overrun by zombies so never found out. I am about 99% sure that you can tell when his health is getting low by looking at his light it will begin to look different and once you are close to killing him it will go very dim. We got it to dim until we finally all died but it took about 6 rounds… Read more »

Oh sorry, at the end; knife the "fuse" not the door… 😛 – And when you find the fuse in step 1 take it back to the door and set the fuse into the door panel to the right from the door.

Sorry for my English spelling, hope you can read it… 🙂

In Solo: The easter egg is this (Remember to knife the door where they are held between every step to get them to talk to you): Step 1: Get the fuse in the room just above the room where the old characters is held, it should be either on the table or the locker in that room. Step 2: Find 4 red-glowing generators throughout the map and destroy them. Destroy them with your grenades, normal or semtex grenades, it doesn´t matter ( its easier with semtex though ). You have to hit them precisely at the red glow, maybe a… Read more »

ok here is the thing 1. If you kill george, he will come back 2. killing him with the VR11 upgraded doenst get you the achievement 3. new perk is called deadshot daquiri (pronounced dack-a-re) doesnt give instant headshots, it just gives a much smaller cross hair 4. the paradise acheivement can be obtained through certain steps to 'release' the old zombie crew. just type in stand in acheivement on youtube. also if you do end up releaseing them in coop mode, another acheivement up your sleve 🙂 upon release of the old crew you are awarded a wunderwaffle dg2… Read more »

Oh and a few tips also, a good camping spot if you get stuck turning on the power is literally that whole top floor, its pretty good and you can jump to the flipper if you get overrun, and the top of the lighthouse, it has only 2 windows to cover and a staircase, and if you get overrun, you can zipline onto the boat.

I found out a lot about this map today, yes you can shoot george with the vr11 gun and make him leave but instead of what some people do, you only have to shoot him in the head once with the upgraded one and he will godown into the water that he spawns in. Also as said in a couple comments above this, you can kill him completely with the ray gun upgraded, the scavenger upgraded and the Vr-11 upgraded, it takes a lot, but he does go away for good. I also noticed the 4 locks in the lighthouse,… Read more »

We actually destroyed him for good.
We used a pack-a-punched VR11, pack-a-punched Scavanger (hyena red-dead, i think), its Awesome!!), abd a pack a punch ray gun. Layed waste to him with 3+ sets and he ran back into his ice cave dropping max ammo.

Andrew

Yeah, me and my friendws used the VR11 on him, he has a red glow to him, and walks back into the area he spawns in. It also seems like the storm dies out too, but we didnt last long enought to really fin out

I notice there is 4 horn you can activate and each on makes a different pitch noise. They are all near the light house. I haven't figured them out but was wondering if anyone else knew about them.

Can you kill him like that in multi player mode?

Frenchtoastdude

I've heard that you can kill him with a Pack-a-Punched V-R11, you take him to the lake with the quick revive and the Pack-a-Punch machine, then he must get inside the water, when he is inside, shoot him, he'll become human and drawn in the lake.
Other theory is that after shooting him he'll become frozen into the iceberg again.

fxgeorges

Supposedly you use this weapon vr11 or something and it tums hims into human form…then he helps you?I think that's what I've heard you can't kill him and if you should him you have to get him into water kuickly or he'll attack you and kill you.
