Trivia Edit

I found some trivia that the care package crate does no longer kill you by falling on you it can be seen at 3 minutes in this vid also in that vid shows you vote out of two maps, or random map. Also new map called Nuketown (unsigned)

The care package is only shown to not kill team mates in core game modes in that video. No official videos have shown what happens if it falls on you or on an enemy. This tweet may hint that the care package drop can kill enemines but isn't really conclusive:
@DaftTank Wow. Rare. No idea! Would test personally and find out from sheer morbid curiosity, but not in the office. Traveling.
In response to this question:
@DavidVonderhaar Hey if i drop a Care Package on a person will it still count towards my killstreak?? Codemaker 22:03, November 5, 2010 (UTC)
It will not count to your killstreak, but you can kill yourself with the package if you stand right under it. (T.Blazingchamion)

new map and combat training Edit here it is even through i hate ign they gave us rights to post lil bit of leaked stuff well more like unleaked it and i think the map is firing range - littleNemo

also and and theres commando with flamethrower and some maps - littleNemo

1 prestige emblem found Edit

question Edit

are black ops and call of duty 4 amd modren warfare 2 set in the same 'universe'

Wut...I understand the question, but I...I just don't know how to answer without flaming...~~IIID Empire 11:34, Nov.4,10

Yes. The difference is Modern Warfare in the future. Smuff [The cake is a lie.] 21:52, November 4, 2010 (UTC)

Well actually I'd have to say no because well there was no mention of any events in any of the MWs. And they are made by two diffrent companys and does anyone else remember how mad IW got when Treyarch put 3 in the CoD3 title so why would they let them use the same universe. Heres how I see it theres the Modern Warfare universe the Black Ops universe the World War 2 universe and the Nazi zombies.M21Sniperteam82308Ghille Sniper 02:17, November 5, 2010 (UTC)

sniper team is partially right. all IW COD's have made small refrences to each other, and all treyarch's games as well. There "universes" go as followed: WW2, IW's Modern Warfare, Treyarch's World at War- Black ops and zombies.

  • The reasons being the WW2 games (pre COD4) are all very similar in the way they were played, treyarch's games were expantions excluding Cod3.
  • Modern warfare revolves around the same conflict, modified to each respected game, main characters return, and deceased main characters are referenced.
  • Black ops is classified in the Treyarch recent history (1935-present) universe. Black Ops makes refrences to WAW and main characters return in the cold war era.
  • Zombies are a stand alone universe, still in recent history, because zombies aren't considered WAW "canon". no where in WAW's canon campaign are zombies referenced.

all that to say Black ops is in WAW's universe at a time period similar to Modern Warfare.

GETreal 22:08, November 6, 2010 (UTC)

If you look at the walls of the Asylum during Ring of Steel you will notice that there are the drawings of zombies on the walls. Conqueror of all Zombies 22:13, November 6, 2010 (UTC)

it just looks like people drawn in blood.

Rc-1136 actually on the intel in black ops for the last mission redemption Ryan says The SAS is going to send him a young team cpt named johnathan ---- (it's redacted) and it mentions this cpts last name again but it's redacted as well it's a short name cpt johnathan price is the name I'm 90% sure cpt price from iw is mentioned cpt prices name from iw is John and he was a very young SAS member during black ops

thank a bunch butthead4

Treyarch may have price in an expansion or sequel due to iw not able to use him anymore  read the intel for further speculation —Unsigned comment was added by

Black Ops Campaign Levels Edit

There are 15 campagin levels.

Operation 40 -- Vorkuta -- U.S.D.D. -- Executive Order -- S.O.G. -- The Defector -- Numbers -- Project Nova -- Victor Charlie -- Crash Site -- WMD -- Payback -- Rebirth -- Revelations -- Redemtion

Here is a picture I took as proof: (Removed it) --Cc123 02:05, November 5, 2010 (UTC)

Leaked. We can't use it. If we do, then Activision might take legal action.R700 menu icon CoD4Sgt.Sandwich | Talk shop | Combat record Burger Town Emblem MW2 02:06, November 5, 2010 (UTC)
This is leaked therfore we cant use it 02:13, November 5, 2010 (UTC)
Ahh. Sorry, didn't realize that. Seem's dumb that they would take action against an informational site, but w/e. --Cc123 02:38, November 5, 2010 (UTC)
No worries mate, just a few days more and we can post everything. --LOST-The Cartographer 04:09, November 5, 2010 (UTC)

Multiplayer Gametypes Edit

In the 1 hour gamespot video at about 2:25 (, David Vonderhaar says that there are possibly Hardcore, Core, and Barebones variations for each game mode.

So you know the game as probably 'core' and a lot of people also know the 'hardcore' version of the game which removes the HUD and makes the game deadlier. But there's also a 'barebones' variation of every game mode; or there could be... - David Vonderhaar

He then goes on to describe what the barebones variation consts of. The gametypes section should probably be updated to reflect the fact that there will be a barebones variation on some game modes. David Vonderhaar also posted a tenative list of game modes in the CoDHQ forums That was over a month ago, so that list probably isn't current anymore. It does demonstrate that the playlists probably won't be organized like MW2's playlists were and will probably be organized more like WaW's playlists were. codemaker 18:19, November 8, 2010 (UTC)

Spellcheck Edit

Maybe it's just the "American" spelling but isn't it "Theatre" not "Theater"? 14:05, November 6, 2010 (UTC)

This wiki uses American English.R700 menu icon CoD4Sgt.Sandwich | Talk shop | Combat record Burger Town Emblem MW2 14:06, November 6, 2010 (UTC)

What are you trying imply with those quotes?

Leaked info Edit

All mentions of "Redemption", "Rebirth," "Project Nova" and the achievment/troph list need removed. As the only confirmation we have of them is from a leaked achievment list. 14:11, November 6, 2010 (UTC)

Project Nova does exist. You can watch the entire level being played at --LOST-The Cartographer 18:21, November 6, 2010 (UTC)
Thats even more leaked info but it was a good mission.Sgt Sprinkles 14:43, November 7, 2010 (UTC)
Finished watching those vids, and Rebirth and Redemption also are levels. However there is also one in between called Revelation(s). Can't wait to play it! --LOST-The Cartographer 01:18, November 8, 2010 (UTC)

Regarding Leaked Info Edit

Can you please not delete any more leaked info? It's gonna be put back up in 2 days (depending on your time zone) anyway. On a side note, new zombie power up: General Geers 09:07, November 7, 2010 (UTC)

Sacrificial Lamb trophy Edit

It sounds easy doesn't it? Kill six zombies after getting hit with a bolt from a PaP crossbow. The trick is, the PaP crossbow shoots red lasers that have the same effect as the Monkey Bomb. So by shooting somebody with said crossbow you are potentially damning them as all zombies will follow the marked player. 15:43, November 7, 2010 (UTC)

Yep most PaP other weapons are support weapons but since its leaked we cant add that.Sgt Sprinkles 15:52, November 7, 2010 (UTC)

Black Ops Weapon Damage Edit

Can anyone confirm the damage stats for Black Ops weapons are accurate?

Youre going to have to wait for the game to come out mate - littleNemo

Prestige Unlocks Edit

Are these confirmed or leaked??? Or was this already leaked?

I wonder what the difference between face tattoo and facepaint is... - Nomats3

all Black ops Prestige emblems from 1-15 Edit here it is its likely real due the fact we have seen number 14 and 15 in gameplays - littleNemo

Black Ops jeep Edit

After the n00b azuris wouldn't do it on IRC, I'm doing a formal request here.

Apparently, there is a special Call of Duty: Black Ops jeep on sale for $30k. Source here.

Anyone mind of adding that? Commander W567123danielWanna Talk?|My Duty|Wassup? 00:27, November 8, 2010 (UTC)

Price Edit

How much does the hardened edition cost in Australian dollars? Hunter Steven 05:43, November 8, 2010 (UTC)

The game needs some additional information. First, you need to add a Nazi Germany or at least remants of nazi forces to the enemy list, as well as british commandos. You fight them both in an arctic level "Project Nova".

Also, large body of WW2 weapons are in the game, namely Mp40, Stg 44, Kar98k, Ppsh-41, Sten, Mossin-Nagant. At least they are in single player, so they are still in game. Regardless they are in multiplayer or not.

I have no idea what this has to do with the hardened editions price. Hunter Steven 08:44, November 8, 2010 (UTC)

WW2 elements in this game Edit

This game features a nazi germans as enemies at the "Project Nova" level, you also fight british commandos. Its a flashback mission and it means loads of WW2 weapons are in the game as well. Like Mp40, Stg44, Mosin-Nagant, Ppsh-41, Sten gun.

The End that Marks a New Beginning Edit

Well, here it is, with just 6 hours left until the game is released, all of us (or most of us) will finally get our hands on Call of Duty Black Ops. The last couple of months have really gone by really fast (as if you didn't know). Heck, it feels like yesterday when we heard Black Ops coming out this November 9th. Since their creation, our Black Ops articles have slowly grown with bits of information coming from here and there until they became the articles they are today. Countless users have provided the admins with new info, videos, correctional errors, pictures etc over the past few months to make the articles stand out from other websites crack at them. The end of all this however, will mark a new beginning. Our hard work doesn't end here, no; we now get to finally take Black Ops apart piece by piece to further expand our Black Ops related articles. So now, go play the game, enjoy yourself, send some zombies to their graves, and then get ready to come back and edit, because this wiki is gonna get crazy for the next few weeks, and remember, NO ONE EDITS ALONE!

Special thanks too all of those users who have helped expand all Black Ops related articles over the months. E.TALE Barracks Headquarters 23:17, November 8, 2010 (UTC)

right on!

if i could figure out how i'd give u a standing ovationGETreal 02:21, November 9, 2010 (UTC)

Fantastic speech! er... text, whatever. I am really hoping that this game is well balanced, I don't want it to end up like another game *cough* MW2 *cough. 02:56, November 9, 2010 (UTC)*

URA! Wii version will bring the fight to their land. Their blood. They will have a taste of what it feels like to be made fun of. No longer will we have to deal with it, Comrades. Lol. JK. I am really excited for the game. I really do want some scum zombies to stop cumming and die. Trayvin talk 00:44, November 10, 2010 (UTC)

sign the pettion at my talk for some exapsion packs butthead4

Black Ops Program Files Edit

I just played my first session of black ops. Fantastic game but I'm a bit annoyed with steam support. Firstly the launch shortcuts are Internet shortcuts so my SP shortcut is just a white page with the Internet explored icon. Secondly, and the main reason I'm annoyed is that Steam hasn't followed the usual path of C:/Program Files/Activision/Black Ops so now I have know idea where the IWDs are and I want them cos they have the SFX files. Is there any way to make the installation path like the one above? I don't mind reinstalling but I want to avoid that if possible. IWD locations would be greatly appreciated. 11:13, November 9, 2010 (UTC)

  • c:/program files/steam/steamapps/common/black ops presumably? my copy for the pc is still in the post, rage levels ███████████████ 100% --Ashwilso12 15:31, November 9, 2010 (UTC)
    • Ashwilso12 is right. Steam saves files of games that, in my own words, "are from companies that are loosly connected to Valve, I.E. Activision, Bethesda, etc". You cannot change this, or Steam won't be able to read where your files are. Thusly, if you DID move it, you might be able to play Single Player, but no co-op or Multiplayer support is availible. DJRosetta 15:50, November 9, 2010 (UTC)
(PS: It's 'cause', not 'cos'. When you find the 'o' in 'because', I believe using that won't be a pet peeve of mine. :P)
Thanks. Also, "cause" has a different meaning. Its much clearer if you just say "cos". General Geers 11:03, November 10, 2010 (UTC)

Zombies Edit

So I was playing on Call of Duty 7 and I clicked on (spoiler) zombies. So it can up with this level in a theater and has modern weapons. It showed that they got put in the teleporter and disappeared. Did they go through time to modern or did they obtain other weapons. Also there is paintings of all the the past men and the zombies are alot faster. Finally if you buy a perk like quick revive (its in the first room for 500$) if you get down then you go down with a Akimbo C-3000 from Der riese but get back up. Plus it has two other maps which i havent played yet.

Andyfaulk 01:22, November 10, 2010 (UTC)

PC Glitch Edit

Can somebody add something about the glitch where the game kidnaps all your CPU and everything lags like Crysis on a Commadore 64? I don't really know the specifics. General Geers 11:01, November 10, 2010 (UTC)

  • the whole game is a glitch on pc atm --Ashwilso12 12:53, November 10, 2010 (UTC)


It's difficult to find this information online, and it needs to be in the article - there is no leveling or progression of any kind for splitscreen local play.


I found out yesterday that you can actually look around in the menu screen by moving the Right Thumbstick. i just thought this was really intresting. if you look to the right, you see the screens seen on and if you look down you see a man that appears to have been recently tortured EDIT: i just found out that the man is Mason --Newraiden23 22:39, November 10, 2010 (UTC)

Also if you press both bumpers then you can break free and move around. If you go to the computer and type in DOA then hit "enter" it brings you "dead ops" which is a arcade-type game. You also unlock an achievement.

And I don't think, in team deathmatch, that extra points for headshots and other bonuses will be added to the team's score. It is just normal team deathmatch with normal scoring.

Clean-up Edit

With the release of the game, this article is in need of some major clean-up to be up to the same standard as our other game articles (ie. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2). I still see some information that has either been clarified by the release of the game, or completely incorrect. Additionally, a great deal of this page, as well as others, remains in the future tense. Semtex HUD icon MW2 Bovell Talk | Contrib. 18:09, November 11, 2010 (UTC)

controversy Edit

i saw on the news and wikipedia that 1 day from release there was controversy saying that cuba condemed the game where they kill a castro double can somebody add this

Cuba has condemned the release of the game as it has special forces trying to kill a young Fidel Castro.[91][92] The Cubadebate website said it would also turn American children into sociopaths.[91][93]

Some critics have questioned events depicted in the single-player campaign stating that they push "the lines of good taste."[94] Among the noted scenes are the torture of a restrained prisoner and thesummary execution of unarmed, surrendering enemy combatants.[94[1]] from wikipedia

black ops multi player Edit

the web site running black opps is rubbish you cant play with freinds when they send you an invite ggrrrrr

You cant invite friends to certain matches where boosting is common or something like that(free for all,wager matches...) 23:23, November 15, 2010 (UTC)

Editing multiplayer options for split screen Edit

I wanna know y with split screen i cant edit time limits, kills, or any of the emblems and stuff. Do i need the playstation network in order to do so

iranian embassy Edit

treyarch said that there would be a level about that in close quarters will atleast i saw it on the main page and in talk session saying that this wad real (before release) how come it isnt in the game? - littleNemo

Treyarch NEVER said that, it was only speculation. I would have enjoyed it, though. (Posted by a ghosted)

Equipment in Weapon Templates?Edit

Is there any particular reason why the equipment (Claymore, C4, Jammer, etc.) are not on the Black Ops weapon template?M249 menu icon CoD4gamemasta424 TalkM249 menu icon CoD4 02:30, November 18, 2010 (UTC)

1 of 100,000 laser cel? Edit

I just opened my Black Ops copy and found that it had a 1 of 100,000 laser cel. Has anyone else gotten one, and why have I never heard of this yet?

SamSniped 12:42, November 20, 2010 (UTC)

What? Slowrider7 13:19, November 20, 2010 (UTC)

From - "Pre-ordering Black Ops with Amazon will earn you a limited edition laser cel. For those unfamiliar with the term, a laser cel is an image that is printed on Mylar (or Melinex, as it is called in the UK) rather than paper or another easily damageable material." Apparently, it only comes with the first 100,000 pre-order copies. SamSniped 16:12, November 20, 2010 (UTC)

Campaign Edit

For the campaign pages, shouldn't we use the pictures that show up when you pick that mission in the game? 22:57, November 20, 2010 (UTC)

That's a good question, actually. We used to, but eventually came to the conclusion that we can show of the wiki's talent for capturing pictures better by adding a really good one rather than the template picture supplied. We still use them on multiplayer though, it's easier to identify maps that way. Smuff [The cake is a lie.] 23:00, November 20, 2010 (UTC)

Perk/class images for all factions Edit

I decided to take screenshots of all 8 multiplayer factions character models; they are here in an imageshack album if anyone wants to use them here on the wiki. They're completely free to use by anyone for whatever means. Here's the album:

Ranked Leaderboard Edit

Multiplayer leaderbard:

Does anyone know what a "ranked match" means? For example, it says that in monthly leaderboard you must compete in 25 ranked matches to have your stats show on the list, and for weekly its 5, all time its 50. I played 4 straight hard core ffa games and for monthly it stayed at 23 games played?

does this have anything to do with me not prestiging and staying at 50? any insight?

Theatre Mode Edit

Can sombody with editor rights to the main page please link a Theatre Mode page, please? I'd like to add a description of how to use this feature and how to export movies out of the game. Thanks

Won't Back Down? Edit

Shouldn't "Won't Back Down" by Eminem have a page like the other musical easter eggs? I noticed it had a page earlier that got deleted.M249 menu icon CoD4gamemasta424 TalkM249 menu icon CoD4 20:04, November 24, 2010 (UTC)

Zombie MapsEdit

Quick question: I am getting the WaW zombie maps soon. When I download it, can my friends, who don't have the maps, play the WaW maps with me?--With care and happiness, Supermutantslayer450' YOU. LOSE. 00:16, November 27, 2010 (UTC)

No, I've tried this before. it will boot your friends from the lobby. ~~IIID Empire 17:26, Nov.26,10

FAMAS and AUG an outrage? Edit

Does anyone else agree that the FAMAS and AUG should have damage reductions? For example: The Galil and the FAMAS kill in the same number of bullets in core modes. The difference being: The FAMAS fires nearly 200 rounds per minute faster. This also applies to the AUG. Does this seem inbalanced?

If you are going to complain about those, complain about the AKs-74u.GhKJh.pngP90DeathmanuceaHlB.png12:16, November 30, 2010 (UTC)

Guest Edit

Does black ops support microsoft guest? Hunter Steven 23:34, November 27, 2010 (UTC)

Who is the woman from Black Ops? Edit

emmanuelle chriqui

that smoking lady is in intro video, broadcasting numbers, and in the mission U.S.D.D. you pass by a woman smoking, and the game then goes into a slowmotion view, and then the females voice starts broadcasting numbers again.

You can see her here.

Also, it's suggested that she's the one who was announcing numbers. 04:45, November 28, 2010 (UTC)

The woman that is seen smoking in U.S.D.D. is named Sarah. And I think the other woman is the one girl (I forget her name) that brodcast on her own radio signal to U.S. troops; telling them that they can't win and playing Anit-War music. Conqueror of all Zombies 03:21, November 30, 2010 (UTC)

Stealth? Edit

"Black Ops features considerably more stealth than any other entry in the Call of Dutyseries."

I beg to differ, in MW2 you have a lot more stealth than Black Ops. In MW2 you have the first half of "Cliffhanger", the first half of "Contingency", the first part of "Just Like Old Times" and the beginning of "The Only Easy Day... Was Yesterday". Black Ops has the first part of "WMD", the first part of "Victor Charlie" and some minor moments at the beginning of "Operation 40", "Executive Order" and "Rebirth". In MW2 you also had the Spec Ops missions "Hidden", "Evasion" and "Acceptable Losses"

In my opinion you are hidden for a longer time in MW2, you kill more ememies while hidden; "Modern Warfare 2 features considerably more stealth than any other entry in the Call of Dutyseries."

TheOnlySimen 23:27, November 28, 2010 (UTC)

Nearly all of the levels in BO are stealth-related. YuriKaslov 23:30, November 28, 2010 (UTC)
Except for "WMD", "Victor Charlie" and "Rebirth", none of the levels are stealth related, it is open firefights, choppers, boats, motorcycles and miniguns. Their is very little stealth in Black Ops. TheOnlySimen 12:22, November 29, 2010 (UTC)
No, nearly all of the levels had stealth in them. Conqueror of all Zombies 03:18, November 30, 2010 (UTC)
Just saying it has stealth does not make it so. Examples halp get the point across. So...
Black Ops
1) Operation 40: began as a stealth mission, eroded shorty after
2) Executive Order: began as a stealth mission, again cover blown shorty after
3) Victor Charlie: stealth elements, not a stealth mission.
4) WMD: stealth maintained for decent time, longest instance of stealth in the game
5) Rebirth: sneaking around for 5 minutes, little stealth
Modern Warfare 2
1) Cliffhanger: begins as stealth mission, cover blown ~halfway through
2) The Only Easy Day...Was Yesterday: began as stealth, cover blown a few minutes in
3) Contingency: begins as stealth mission, cover blown ~1/3 through mission
4) Loose Ends: attempt stealth mission, but fails at beginning
5) The Enemy of My Enemy: the entire mission, up until the end, can be played in stealth
6) Just Like Old Times: stealth mission, maintained until ~1/3 in
Now, this is just campaign, since this is where the statement is directed. Missions not listed may include stealth elements's the smart thing to do in war. But, looking at this, it's not correct to say Black Ops features "considerably" more stealth than MW2, or any CoD game. Hell, Black Ops campaign was one big Michael Bay movie... Automechtech1 06:59, November 30, 2010 (UTC)
1) Only Easy Day wasn't too stealthy. Large explosions and almost being seen by a Little Bird isn't stealth
2) How the hell is Loose Ends stealthy at all?
3) Scilencers don't mean stealth
That makes Black Ops with the most stealth. Conqueror of all Zombies 06:01, December 30, 2010 (UTC)
Did you even play MW2 or Black Ops? I don't think you even read anything I said, because I said Loose Ends was an "attempt" at a stealth mission. And if you look at the time spent in stealth rather than attemtping to match the points on a "every mission is equal" basis, you'd realize that Black Ops features almost no stealth. However, I really don't care if you think Black Ops is the most stealthy game since Metal Gear Solid 4, but the important thing is that the original quote is absent from the page. Automechtech1 07:56, January 5, 2011 (UTC)
Idiot. An "attempt at a stealth mission" isn't a fucking stealth mission! The Enemy of My Enemy is only stealth if you play it that way. My first time playing I switched out my sniper rifle for an enemy gun and went loud almost the entire time. And I never said the Black Ops "is the most stealthy game since Metal Gear Solid 4" dumbass! Conqueror of all Zombies 23:57, January 23, 2011 (UTC)
Alright, kid, I was merely making an allusion to the fact that the original quote was gone, so all opinions aside, the issue was over. But I guess Call of Duty has made you so obdurate that you feel the need to respond in such a juvenile way, or you at least lose your cool easily. It's a simple discussion, and on the Internet, no less. Automechtech1 01:12, February 10, 2011 (UTC)
Conqueror Of All Zombies must be a kid. It's quite simple to see that Nodern Warfare 2 has more stealth. Plus, if silcencers don't mean "stealth", then what do thet mean? Dinosaurfan1 22:57, March 9, 2011 (UTC)

Could we add something to the Wii section of Black Ops? Edit

One difference between the Wii and other consoles not listed on the main page for Black Ops is that, in the 15th and last level called "Redemption," the 360/PS3/PC versions start out with the player controlling a helicopter and destroying targets located around the ship. Then, the helicopter gets shot down and the player is forced to bail out. On the Wii version, however, the level immediately starts out with the player jumping out of the copter.

I don't know who is able to edit the page for Black Ops, but to whoever can, it'd be great if you could add this. Here's links to the different versions as proof:



UPDATE: I just wanted to give a huge thank you to whomever updated the main page with my info.

russian attachements Edit

Intel locations Edit

Do you think you can show where you can find the intel pieces in each of the missions?Makarov29 06:51, December 29, 2010 (UTC)

Wii Edit

I think that we should add the fact that on the Wii, numerous problems have been occurring. This has also happened to me three days ago, and when I googled it, I found out it has been happening to A LOT of Wii users. The CD is too heavy for the Wii's laser, causing it to overwork itself to read the disc, which then causes the laser to stop functioning completely. This leads to the Wii's RRoD, which is the 'An error occurred, please press the Eject button and refer to Wii manual for further instruction." Maj. Blackout 03:21, January 5, 2011 (UTC)

Maybe by saying Call of Duty: Black Ops causes many problems for the Wii including laser overload. Or something like that.Sniperteam82308 03:25, January 5, 2011 (UTC)

First Strike DLC Debut Trailer HD Edit

The first trailer for the first package of DLC for Black Ops is out!

New Black Ops glitch OMG! Edit

When you die, I've found that the dead character will fall beneith the map. That's it. Oh! And sometimes when you respawn, you'll spawn looking up at the sky. Conqueror of all Zombies 01:14, January 23, 2011 (UTC)

what does the gold dog tags mean in nazi zombies?

the gold tag drops, when picked up, mean that every box location becomes active and box purchases are 10 points each

All of COD black ops nazi zombies guns Edit

Can I have a list of all the guns in Call-of-Duty Nazi Zombies please? If you could please show a link or picture off all the chalk outlines too. But if you don't have that just list the gun names for me thanks.

call of duty black ops 2 should go like this

the first part should be about hudson in the korean war

the second should be between 1963 and 1968

and the thrid part should be 1968-1978

Uh cool but thats not what i asked for....

Adding a First Strike Under Gametypes

what's happened black ops has been filled with noobs as of late i mean 4 out of every 5 games i go into i have been owned by people like me3ican waffles amd lard lord

From WASP Killer- almost EVERY zombie lobby i go into would have n00bs who just stay in the lobby, doing nothing, or if their hosts, they end the game immedietly after it started. Also, people! STOP QUITTING IN THE MIDDLE OF A ZOMBIE GAME!! just because, you lost your zeus cannon, gersh device, and upgraded raygun, doesn't mean you should quit! nly when our going out you should quit.

Honestly? Edit

To whomever inserted the comparision of Black Ops' and Modern Warfare 2's Metacritic scores at the top of the page, that was low. You couldn't even get the insult right; "...Black Ops recieved average reviews... 88%..." You are aware that 88% is pretty high, right? Anyway, don't do that again.

Please fix Edit

A user named Firulice (he/she tried to promote a video he/she made) made a mistake in editing the Black Ops page and now it is all messed up. Please fix! EDIT: Never mind, it took me a half an hour just to fix it, but at least it's fixed

XBL Ban-fest? Edit

Several of my friends have been banned after playing Black-Ops. Some of my friends in real life say that oftentimes the team that loses will start voting to ban people. Given that 12 of my XBL friends have been banned or had their Gamerscore reduced to 0, I'm a little scared to get Black Ops. Can anyone confirm whether or not the people on this game vote to ban like crazy? Can anyone here put my fears to rest? --Delta1138 SnooPING AS usual I see 16:08, May 4, 2011 (UTC)

If anything, I am most certanly shocked. You shouldn't worry about getting blocked. Talking to T arc by letter, email, or face book would probably keep you safe. Try telling them that you want to have a good time playing Blops, and don't plan to sin or do evil. I would have to guess it would be because of one of the following:

1: 10 year old kids who are spoiled getting pissed that they lost.

2: 5 year olds spazzing

3: Demented people

4: People who hate losing

5: Poor player's attempt to get better players for the future

6: Just plain jerk wads in general.

7: people who like to screw you up.

8: Hackers trying to stop you, or get personal info. Like what happened to PSN.

9: Your friends were simply too good at the game, and others spazzed and whined.

10: crappy players trying to mess up your life because of their lack of skill.

If you wouldn't mind that I ask: were they using noob tactics? (Spawn camping, power weapons used, etc.)

At any rate, you shouldn't worry, but just tell T arc that your friends wern't cheating, but rather just good at the game. Hope I've put your fears to rest! Blahmarrow 22:34, May 9, 2011 (UTC)

Article Update Edit

Someone with the ability to change this page needs to do so, and preferably as soon as possible. I'm seriously losing brain cells reading it.

The summary of the campaign needs to be reduced at least 75%. Reading the damn thing takes longer than playing it. Cover major plot points and leave it at that.

Computer codes do not need to be in an article summarizing the game. Easter eggs that are so relatively unimportant to the rest of the game taking up as much space on the main article as the campaign summary will leave readers confused as to exactly what the purpose of the game is; if it's a shooter or a god damned puzzle on a computer console in the Main Menu.

The Multiplayer section also needs significant trimming. A quick explanation of the basic function of multiplayer in Call of Duty, and then descriptions of things that are new and things that have remained the same. Major things, too. If someone says that "you still get 50 extra points for a headshot" or "Marathon moved from Slot 1 to Slot 3" then they need to stop editing altogether.

Remove the list of gametypes, replace the maps with the map template (like you have with the perks), and make footnotes to the effect that some maps are from two different DLC packages. Do not mention once in the Maps section that eight maps come from DLC, and then mention again in the DLC section that eight maps come from the DLC. Fuck.

Holy shit on a Pope-stick, the Pictures. The Pictures section look like a retard's scrapbook, and I'm not altogether convinced that it's not. If we already have a picture containing images of ALL the weapons, why do we need seven-goddamn-teen more? And why have half of them been there since the first trailer for this game came out? Do we have no updates?

And the same goes for both the Characters and Locations subsections. Christ alive, out of 22 maps, we have three pictures? Two zare from the trailer and the other literally has no higher quality than the thumbnail. Are we sure that's Cracked? Are we sure that's not dog feces?

Why is there a Miscellaneous subsection, and why is it folllowed then by two MORE subsections? Miscellaneous is usually last, and that's not to say that having it is even justified. We can honestly do away with the entire Pictures section, but, if we can't, let it be known that a well-trained monkey could classify those seventeen pictures a little better than "miscellaneous."

Theater already has its own section and article. Who is the champion that authorized the inclusion of those three pictures, with no accompanying explanation as to what is going on in them?

Eleven pictures containing a grand total of two different logos, one of which is at the top of the god damn page. There are some really retarted articles on this Wiki, but this part trumps them all.

Okay, so Riddle me this, Batman. We have a category of Nintendo Wii-specific trivia, followed by a Video category, followed by a Controversy section that really should have been much further up in the page, followed by another video section, followed by another trivia section, followed by a piece of trivia that, for some reason, got its own section. You're seriously telling me that this article is Feature-worthy?

Neither video section is necessary, and both contain more videos than justifiable. Make the Nintendo Wii section look a little less like a Trivia section, trim it down to the vitals, and put it NEXT to information on the other systems. We can get rid of all the Videos and leave only one or two gameplay trailers. Also, "Triple Collateral Quick Scoping 5 Streak?" Get that self-aggrandizing bullshit off this Wiki and never let it come back.

I am not actually sure this article can be salvaged. I leave you with this quote as my rationale, which was either written by a monkey or an idiot: "As seen in Payback Demo, originally missions' starting lines looked similarly to the ones from Call of Duty: World at War." 00:42, May 13, 2011 (UTC)

Have you ever heard John f kennady's quote? "Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country!" Same thing can be applied here. If you can fix it, do it. If you want it changed, don't get others to do so, you change it. I will start fixing it when possibleBlahmarrow 21:46, May 13, 2011 (UTC)

I believe the article is protected from unregistered users to prevent flaming and I have already started revamping the page. Carbonite 0 21:51, May 13, 2011 (UTC)

Hardcore Moshpit for Black ops Edit

I went back to MW2 the other day and picked Hardcore Moshpit and loved it so I was wonderin if anybody would think it would be a good idea for BO to have HC Moshpit. 01:04, June 2, 2011 (UTC)(xiMercenary7ix)

room 9 Edit

what about the room masons in (Nohi 21:00, June 3, 2011 (UTC))

What are you asking? MercyDudebotTalkWelcome to Freedom 21:03, June 3, 2011 (UTC)
some one start a page about that room masons in you know in the main menu and every mission except redemption.(Nohi 20:13, June 9, 2011 (UTC))

Should Treyarch have weapon DLC's for multiplayer? Edit

This is an idea I've had for a while. Treyarch uses the MP40 in two zombie maps (Kino der Toten and Call of the Dead), possibly brought to each map by Richtofen. I think Treyarch should make the MP40 a DLC weapon, as it is a personal favorite of mine, and possibly many people as well, even though it's not time-period specific (I mean, there's like 11 guns already that aren't). Another weapon DLC is kinda overpowered, but whatever. I think Treyarch should have the wonder weapons (Ray Gun, Matryoshka Dolls, Scavenger, and Wunderwaffe DG-2) as DLC weapons as well. Some of you may be thinking that they're overpowered, but listen: The Ray Gun can just kill people like any other gun, the Matryoshka Dolls can be a new form of grenade, the Scavenger does what it usually does, and the Wunderwaffe can kill up to multiple people like in zombies. Yet the only way people can get the wonder weapons is for Treyarch to add secret achievements that people need to do on the zombie maps to get them. Oh, and the Mustang and Sally and Dragon's Breath wouldn't be too bad of attachments for the M1911 and Spas-12.Anakin7154 01:29, June 23, 2011 (UTC)

DLC #4 Edit

I've heard that the fourth map pack for Black Ops will be called Retaliation, and there are four new multi-maps: Mansion, Cargo, Harbor, and one other map, plus a new zombie map that will take place in Area 51 and/or Firing Range called Quarantine. Can anyone look into this and let me know if its true? Novafan365, master of scrap 01:37, July 13, 2011 (UTC)

100% false. If you go to your Xbox hard drive, Retaliation is the name of Escalation inside the game. "Escalation" will not appear in your saved data, whereas Retaliation will. Idk about the multiplayer maps, but Quarantine has been rumored to be the next Zombie map ever since Black ops came out. Clearly that has been wrong 3 times already.The capoe123 16:06, August 1, 2011 (UTC)

Its not 100% false, I don't beleive the rumors either, but they could reuse the retaliation name if they wanted, as well as the use of Quarantine. Information like this always has a shred of truth in it.

No, it is 100% false. As Moon is the last Zombies map for Black Ops, and we don't know whether Treyarch are making another Call of Duty game. It was wrong four times in a row, and people need to realise that it's not going to happen. And DLC 4 is called Rezurrection, and as our administrators have said, it wasn't going to be Retaliation anyway.

Add Rebirth Island Edit

You should add Rebirth Island, Aral Sea in the Settings (Soviet Union). - Marcaurel 23:47, August 6, 2011 (UTC)

I know you guys must be busy but I believe you should add this - -- 09:43, August 7, 2011 (UTC)

Map PacksEdit

Please, Put on Black ops's Trivia this

  • This is the first Call of Duty game to Contain Over 3 Map Packs.

I Thought it would work...i think...Heheh....

=Black ops list of characters, weapons, maps, etc. not black anymore?Edit

Uhhh....Why are W@W and Zombies black and the black ops isnt anymore?PyrusMutantHelios 13:05, August 15, 2011 (UTC)

Typo Edit

In wager match match section for "One in the Chamber" it reads:

One in the Chamber - Each player is given an M1911 with one bullet and a knife. ine hit from any weapon will kill a player. For each kill achieved the player will receive one more bullet. However, each player will only have three lives.

"One" is misspelled. I would correct it but it won't allow me to.

Butters1320 09:27, August 27, 2011 (UTC)

Fixed. DogNut327 09:32, August 27, 2011 (UTC)

Mac? Edit

Black Ops is not available for Mac.

I'm saying this from personal experience, I had to use Bootcamp to get it to work.

In the platforms section of the top-right box it doesn't say Mac, but in the opening paragraph it does. Can someone verify what's going on?

WTH Himilayas?Edit

I never recall in Black Ops (other than Shangri La Zombies) to ever visit the Himilayas. And the Link on the featured page takes you to WMD, which the campaign describes as being in the Urals. So why is it Himilaya?

Zombies Talk page removed?Edit

I was just searching for the zombies talk page which had a lot of cool different conversations and it seems to be gone. Did any one ever conclusively verify that previous achievements are necessary for Rictofens grand scheme? 15:41, May 8, 2012 (UTC)DannabisAx

Sam Worthington & Ed Harris Edit

I know this info could be irrelevant to this wiki, but can we say in the trivia section that the voice actors of the two main playable characters (Mason and Hudson) later played main roles in the 2012 thriller film Man on a Ledge? (Sam Worthington plays the protagonist again, but Ed Harris plays the primary antagonist) --Ultimate94ninja (talk) 21:07, August 20, 2012 (UTC)

Trivia Edit

"Black Ops is the second Call of Duty title to take the player into space, in both WMD and the MoonZombies map." If the author was talking about a Blackbird sequence, he was totally wrong. Max altitude of SR-71 was something around 26 km, whereas outher space begins at 100 km. 20:26, August 28, 2012 (UTC)Szpagin

Wii version Edit

I'm pretty sure lack of HD quality on Wii is due to the console having less powerful graphics hardware, not because of a lack of RAM. 21:18, January 7, 2013 (UTC)


INTEL FOR ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 04:37, September 17, 2013 (UTC)
