In Call of Duty: Black Ops, the Zombies mini-game is just as popular as ever. In this Black Ops Zombies Guide, I will be revealing some of the best tactics you can use to get to the highest possible levels in Zombies.
The first thing you should know is to know the difference between Zombies and other players. Zombies are extremely hard to kill unless you shoot them in the head; it is very hard to kill a Zombie by shooting it in the torso, and shooting it in the arms is a waste of ammo.
As a result, if you want to kill Zombies, you will need to start aiming for the head. They move very slowly so this is not nearly as hard to do as when playing against players. You also get more money (points) for headshots, so try to get as many as you can. This is one of the basics of any Black Ops Zombies guide.
Another great tactic is to leave one Zombie alive while regrouping. The next level does not start until you kill the final Zombie, so you can leave a few crawling around until you buy more ammo, guns, and meet up with your team. This strategy is absolutely necessary if you want to make it to the next level, as without it you will not be able to buy guns and ammo in between rounds. If you rush in between rounds, your team will become disorganized and out of supplies.
Thirdly, by level 7 you need to start trying to get a ray gun. You can get a ray gun inside the mystery chest, which can appear at any of the locations marked on the map with the “?” and the green light. Be sure to check all the locations as it can only spawn at one location.
Each round, the Zombies get harder and harder, so if you want to advance far past level 12, you will need everyone on your team to have Ray Guns. Note that you cannot get two Ray Guns; after you get your first one, spend your money on the power-ups like Root Beer (increases reload speed).
The only necessary thing though in this Black Ops Zombies guide is try to make sure everyone gets a Ray Gun. The power-ups are nice additions but not necessary to make it to the advanced levels.
Finally, make sure you kite the zombies around rather than fighting them head on. That is probably the most important strategy in this Black Ops Zombies Guide. Kiting refers to constantly running away from enemies, turning around and shooting a few, then continuing to run.
You are able to run a lot faster than the Zombies, so if you keep running throughout the level, they will eventually amass into a big ball that you can easily kill without having to worry about getting jumped from behind. This strategy alone can take you to the top levels.
