— Map description

Hangar 18 was released as part of the Annihilation Map Pack for Call of Duty: Black Ops on June 28, 2011 for Xbox 360, and July 28, 2011 for PS3 and PC. It was originally a canceled map named Area 51. This is a medium sized map, set within Area 51. It has numerous easter eggs, such as alien corpses and a floating apple. Hangar 18 also has many high elevated areas such as a cremation room, towers, and an SR-71 Blackbird.




  • There is an apple levitating in what appears to be an electromagnetic field on the map. When shot, the bullets deflect and hit the walls around it.
  • The player can see three alien carcasses covered with blankets, which also have hands with four fingers and blue feet with four toes sticking out from the blankets.
    • It should be noted that these bodies have a tag on them which reads "Government Property."
  • In the alien room, there is an autopsy table that was thrown into a wall, and has large amounts of blood throughout the room, suggesting an alien escape.
  • There are numerous panels throughout the map that can be destroyed. If the action button is pressed, sounds will play. After being destroyed, these panels will re-spawn.
  • All the black vans' license plates say "exempt", and all the white vans' license plates say "U.S.Gov".
