"High in the Austrian Alps, a village sits in the shadow of the castle, "Der Eisendrache", and has become a battle ground between the forces of good and evil."
— Description

Der Schatten (German for The Shadow) is a multiplayer map featured in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. It was first introduced on July 9th, 2019 first on PlayStation 4 for players who purchased the Black Ops Pass, and later on July 16th, 2019 for Xbox One and PC.

The map is set in the village below the castle of the Zombies map Der Eisendrache, with traces of Element 115 scattered around it after the destruction of a Giant Robot.



  • While Der Schatten occurs at the same time as Der Eisendrache and is set in the same area, the map was announced to be set in Eisenstadt which is 160 miles away from Werfen. It is most likely a continuity error.
  • Primis (Edward Richtofen, "Tank" Dempsey, Takeo Masaki and Nikolai Belinski) can be heard through a radio on the gondola control panel.
  • Several zombies can be found around the map. The zombies have all red eyes instead of yellow eyes like in Der Eisendrache.
    • A Teddy Bear can also be seen knocking behind the window of the toy store.
  • Several Sputnik 1 and Soyuz models can be seen on shelves inside the toy store.
  • The Giant Robot's body is from a "Riese Model", as seen by the iron cross on the chestplate, like those seen in Der Eisendrache and Origins, while its head comes from a "Gigant Model" from Gorod Krovi. The Giant Robot is a entire "Gigant Model" in the Operation Apocalypse Z trailer.
  • A statue of Primis Dempsey can be found on the map with a text in German translating to "The great exterminator of maggots-sacks. When great evil attacks humanity, he returns to smite the wicked."
  • According to a Message of the Day, the Specialists entered a time portal to reach Der Schatten.
