Whether you brave it alone, play with friends, or go online to team up with others, battling against a horde of zombies is a lot of fun and throughout the years there have been some incredible versions of it. Updated by Matthew Wilkinson on April 18th, 2020: The Zombies' mode of Call Of Duty has always proven to be incredibly popular, with every map having some positives and negatives.
Anybody who has played Buried will know all too well how scary and creepy this map is, with the haunted house being a terrifying experience that is not really recommended for people who get scared easily. This map came under some criticism for being a little gimmicky when it was first released, with the game allowing you to play as famous world leaders; John F. Kennedy, Fidel Castro, and Richard Nixon.
Some gamers were unable to look past that fact early on, but, once you got to play the Five map, it was a lot of fun, with tight spaces and very few places to hide keeping you on the edge of your toes throughout. Five also brought a new form of enemy with the Pentagon Thai, who took things to a new level with his attempts to steal your weapons, causing problems for people throughout.
It felt like one big game of Clue by taking place in a huge mansion, and COD did a great job of bringing more than just Zombies into things, with vampires and werewolves helping to make this even scarier than normal. Charles Dance, Kaiser Sutherland, Brian Blessed, and Helena Botham Carter were all featured here, and they added a lot of fun.
Inspired by the 1940s New Orleans Jazz scene, the fictional More City was a perfect environment and switched things up for Zombies, going from the traditional bleak colors to something a little more vibrant, which was met with positive and negative feedback. This is the final map in the series, and, because of that, everything is ramped up to make this very difficult, although it does bring the story arch together satisfyingly that left everyone happy.
Her Eisendrache may just take the number one prize in terms of visuals, with this map being absolutely stunning to play through with incredible detail-packed to both interact with and in the background. The elemental staves added something fresh to the combat, with giant robots walking around the landscape, giving something else to the gamer to think about, with a look to the sky being needed to avoid being crushed.
This map was full of story reveals that brought things to an end in a perfect way, mixing emotion and impactful moments with fantastic gameplay and graphics. If you want a really fun Zombies experience, then Mob of the Dead is probably the perfect choice for you, with a fantastic atmosphere with a gangster feel that also didn't take itself overly seriously.
This map did have elements of dark humor which were welcomed, while also having an incredible story that had a real thriller feel with a brilliant payoff that was well worth dedicating some time for. Taking place on Alcatraz, the location chosen was superb and fit the zombies franchise well, with a hidden Johnny Cash song and the return of the introduction of the Tommy Gun, this map had it all.
This was the starting point for Zombies, with this being a surprise mini-game that people weren't aware of until they unlocked it, which took place after players completed the World at War's main solo campaign. Once you had made your way through the game you actually bought, you were given a huge bonus of the Yacht Her Unto ten map, which provided an incredible experience that nobody had prepared for.
While it still has the dark theme that would be expected from the game, it also has some amazingly vibrant neon lights that give the map a pop of color. The whole map takes place in a zombie infected amusement park with rides blaring around and a hilarious MC who keeps things entertaining throughout.
Since Her Raise originally debuted within World at War, Trey arch has remastered the map on two more occasions, proving it is a major hit for the franchise, and that is why it ranks so highly on this list. The brilliance of this map was that it had a genuinely eerie and strange feel to it, with the theater being the main hub, with deserted and ripped apart chairs, cobwebs everywhere, and a dark moody atmosphere.
Nothing quite screams, “Hey, check out the zombies we put in Blackout” as the Halloween-postcard Asylum perched atop the hills at the map’s eastward end. You’re certain to awaken a horde of the wheezing shambles as you stomp around the building’s two stories (you can see if a location will have zombies if it has a beam of blue light shooting from it in the distance) or brave the backyard hedge maze, so keep your ears sharp for enemy player footfalls behind all the groans and wails.
Its location just south of the map’s center makes it a great launch point for other nearby landmarks, and the tower grounds offer piles of gear sitting within its clustered office buildings and cargo containers. A great spot to acclimate your first few rounds, the two large office buildings just west of the looming Hydro Dam host scores of gear, guns, grenades, medicine, and a scant player count due to the proximity to the map’s edge.
This standout Call of Duty subseries from Trey arch has one thing that Infinity Ward will never have: zombies. It delivers nostalgia, a solid multiplayer experience, objectives to complete, and an actual story.
The story of Zombies in Black Ops Cold War sees those damn Nazis up to no good again. It starts with a flashback to the WWII days, showing the undead overtaking a research facility.
Onslaught is a mode that is exclusively for PlayStation players for the first year of the game’s life. The players have to defend a moving location from the horde of flesh eaters.
The sequel to, what do you know, Dead Ops Arcade II, is a fun little getaway from the regular Zombies action. It’s a top down, arcade style shooter that basically just consists of spamming bullets until its game over.
A chopper will arrive to whisk the team away to safety, as long as the even more massive wave of zombies doesn’t put a stop to it. Dead shot Daiquiri: Aiming down sights moves to enemy critical location, and removes scope sway.
Elemental Pop: Every bullet has a small chance to apply a random base Ammo Mod effect. For more details on Perks, Custom Loadouts, Skill Tiers, Field Upgrades, and more, check out Trey arch's full guide here.
The mystery box is there to give the lucky Ray Gun pull. Hours will be spent popping zombie domes, ignoring the fact that it is a Call of Duty game.
Trey arch promises a lot more Gauntlets throughout the year, and each will function differently. During the event, which will be available on PS4, Xbox One and PC, players can earn double XP and Nebulas Plasma.
There are reportedly more maps on the way as well, and Trey arch will add those into the rotation for Team Deathwatch, Free-for-All and others. Trey arch is in the midst of a major push to ready the game for league play.

After walking up the stairs on the right, still in the outside area leaning against a railing. The door that leads to the Upper Grand Staircase is very close to this location.

The shield is sitting in the corner on top of a crate. That’s all the possible shield part spawn points on Call of Duty Black Ops 4’s Voyage of Despair Map.
