Typing 3ARC UNLOCK into the computer console accessible after breaking out of the chair will unlock all the campaign missions even if they are unplayed, Dead Ops Arcade, and Five (does work on the Wii, but only with Campaign missions, as the Wii only has one zombie map.).

Typing ZORK into the computer will unlock the trophy/achievement Eaten by a Grue as well as start up the text-based adventure game Zork.

Typing in DOA will unlock Dead Ops Arcade.
