With Black Ops just over a month away we have had some new interesting developments concerning the game. A list of the achievements from the multiplayer and co-op mode has been leaked today and been confirmed by Call of Duty’s Twitter spokesman Josh Olin as accurate.
The list provided by Planet Call of Duty via Electric Pig contains spoilers about the game and also more hints on the detail in the confirmed zombie mode. I would advise you not to read the spoilers if you want to wait for the game’s release. I will only be talking about the achievements related to zombies.
Zombie Mode is officially 100% confirmed! The first challenge “The Collector” confirms this: “In Zombie mode, buy every weapon off the walls in a single game”. Now that we know it is definite we can have more fun by speculating detail; and there is plenty of it.
The most interesting challenge that I have seen is “I hate monkeys”, which requires you to “Kill 7 monkeys in under 10 seconds in the Rebirth labs”. I don’t want to get too excited but I am thinking of the possibilities of zombie monkeys as well as the dogs (28 days later anyone?). I am going to back this up with another challenge which is called “Insert Coin”, as you are challenged to “Access the terminal and battle the forces of the Cosmic Silverback in Dead Ops Arcade”.
First of all, if the “Dead Ops Arcade” is not related to zombies then I don’t know what is and also back on the monkey subject, you may be aware that a “Silverback” is the primary ape in a group of gorillas which I think hints at some sort of “boss” inclusion that we did not see in World at War. Also accessing the terminal may be similar to turning on the power as I have gathered that the new zombies will be staged in a huge research lab or facility; where I believe the zombies were created.
I believe this environment will be called “Rebirth Island” but will be translated into something else in the game. If you follow the link below you can see that on the security screens most of the footage is staged in a huge laboratory with scientists being overrun and killed.
The reason for this is that the “No leaks” achievement asks you to “Make it through the NOVA 6 gas without dying on Rebirth Island”. In the video we saw earlier this week on Treyarch’s viral site GKNOVA6.com, there was a man in a gas mask being put into a gas chamber so it seems another link has been established here. I will leave you with the best news from “Sacrificial Lamb” as it confirms the return of the Pack-a-Punch machine and also confirms crossbows in zombies. “Kill 6 zombies after getting shot by a Pack-a-Punched Crossbow bolt”, also hints and friendly fire from your teammates.
That’s all for now guys so leave us all of your thoughts and ideas on Black Ops zombies and their achievements. We want to hear all of your opinions so head to the comments and tell us if you agree with some of our theories.
