Best Nazi Zombie Maps

The Top Ten
1 Der Riese

Der riese is my favorite map, with the only Maps even coming close being kino dear Toten and maybe origins.

Der riese and kino are perfectly the right size, not tiny like nacht or verrukt but not ridiculous like origins, moon, or SOE. No annoying stupid crawlers, jumping jacks, or... Denizens.

The pack a punch system, like in kino, uses teleporters and is brilliant. The ppsh is... The greatest thing ever.

Town is AMAZING for learning zombies, but just can't match up to this. Origins is to hard to learn if you are new. But der riese is perfect. I guess you could say it's a GIANT(get it? )

This map and moon are the most innovative maps yet! But if I would only be able to play one map for the rest of my life, it would be Der Riese because of the challenge and fun factor in it. Also because all of the Easter eggs that are in it too. Like hide and seek or the radios and etc...


Introduced many of the biggest innovations in zombies especially the teleporters and the pack a punch obviously. It got me into zombies and the packed mg42 and fg42 remain 2 of the most powerful zombie guns ever. Also lets not forget how cool it was to camp where someone had a flamethrower and a wunderwaffe dg2. Fire hurts the zombies and the other players clean up with MG's. Best wonder weapon ever is the wunderwaffe

This map wins fairly. I've had, proven, over 46 hours of fun gameplay on this exciting map of zombie Awesomeness! Der Riese foREVer.

2 Kino der Toten

This is by far the best Zombies map in my opinion! Although the Easter egg is very simple and does not add much finesse to the story, it is a fun one to do. When you play the song, "115", it gets you and all the players in the lobby pumped up! I have played all zombie maps and this remains my favorite, way over Der Riese! It is also the best map to run trains on which is fun. This is a great starter map and it teaches you how to be a great zombies player overall! I was terrible at zombies until I constantly played this map. The best Easter eggs are always on the last DLC, Der Riese, Moon, and Origins. So, for a map that IS FREE, it beats all others, including DLC's too.

First map, best map! On a personal level, Ascension is my favorite since I got to 30, 50, 80, and 100 first on this map, but I believe Kino deserves it more than Ascension. Ascension made me a pro, but Kino was the best and most original of the two. Der Riese is my no. 3. You can do everything from camping to training or anything on this one map, but it's always the same spot for each strategy. Camp above Bowie knife, train by pack-a-punch, so for me I put Der Riese at no. 3

How does Nacht der Untoten win? Yeah, it's a fun simple map... but don't you think it's a little too bland? I think the Theater rocks socks. The teleporter is there, new Nova6 Crawlers, electroshock, turrets, and a simple 'circle' map design. How can you not love this new classic?

I'm sorry but I played this map so much, I got bored of it and now I'm into ascension... But I still voted for this because deep down hehe I still love this map. And guys, Moon is a great map! Vote for it.

3 Mob of the Dead

This map deserves to be top 3. A lot of people look at the overall gameplay to determine if a map is good or not, but I feel that atmosphere, characters, and difficulty play a part as well. The atmosphere of this map is very dark. It kinda brings back the World at War feel. Dark colors, bodies hanging in chains, everything absolutely demolished. The characters also fit the map very well. 4 mobsters stuck in a cycle because of their sins is such a nice way to fit the map. Finally the difficulty. This map takes A LONG TIME to get everything. Even if you save up points wisely, you may not get Jugg until Round 7 if you're lucky. And you may not get to Pack a Punch until Round 12 if you're lucky. Overall, I think this map really set the pace for BO2 zombies. Die Rise being the train wreck it was made me think that BO2 zombies would be a joke. But after MOTD, everything was perfect. Buried brought us an easy map, but extremely fun gameplay along with the classic western theme. And Origins ...more

Easily one of the best maps in the Zombie franchise. Personally, I consider Mob of the Dead the shining Jewel of Black Ops 2 (and probably all Black Ops) Zombies. BO2 had some great and innovative maps like Tranzit and Origins, but BO2 seemed to lack the dark-mysterious theme that so heavily populated BO1 Zombies. Mob of the Dead restored that theme and more so. Somewhat disconnected from the main story, the atmosphere, characters, and visuals of Mob of the Dead are some of the most horrifying and frightening yet (Something that should not be overlooked when playing a game where the main goal is to survive unrelenting hoards of the undead). The guns on this map are great - Blundergat, Deathmachine, Tommy gun, just to name a few. The main story/Easter egg, though fairly short, is both fun and intriguing. The map layout itself is a fairly large one but this is actually a good thing. There are plenty of areas that feel unique to themselves and offer varying game-play. And then there's ...more

Mob of the Dead is the best zombies map ever because not only are the afterlives free but you get three of them and also the Pack-A-Punch machine is very easy to get to. Another thing is the map will keep you busy more than I can say for Der Reise. Don't get me wrong Der Reise is a very good map, but it will never equal Mob of the Dead, and the fact that it is number seven is just pathetic.

Most objectives of any map. Golden spork, hells retriever and hells retriever. The five skulls to get a free blundergat, the acid gat parts to upgrade the blundergat to the acid gat. The five plane parts to pack a punch on the Golden Gate Bridge. There are two different songs you can activate. There is the afterlife to turn on power to different perks and cells. And the shield parts. It is the biggest zombies map too. To me it is the most fun.

4 Ascension

Best map to rack up points and get soda perks, while working your way up to pack-a-punch. With four people using carbines you can get up to 5, 000 points without even unlocking the first door! Has big open paths that let you escape swarms or places to jump out of, and then whip around and empty clips into, or throw nades against walls as you go past. The launch pads destroy zombies in their radius and give you convenient transport or escape. Great guns on the walls like Ak-74 or m-16, so you won't run out of ammo on perked weapons past level 20. Decent places to camp where you'll only get attacked head on. Use machine guns to wrack up points and you'll go far. Monkeys are fun, just put down mines around your perks or each take one to guard. I hate Call of the Dead, George is annoying and everything is so spread out that even with the zip lines it's a huge pain to navigate. Plus you always have a joker who keeps angering him. The boat is a labyrinth full of dead ends too. My friend ...more

This map should be first because it brings back the "three teleporters" idea from Der Reise and makes it better. Ascension provides plenty of room for trains, a massive easter egg, and a new challenging foe; the space monkeys. Also, just like the pack-a-punch and monkeys for Der Reise, Ascension introduces staminup and girch devices (please excuse my spelling). I'm not saying Der Reise is awful, in-fact it's amazing! All I'm trying to point out is that Ascension takes what Der Reise had and ran with it.

I love ascension I play it a lot I love the diversity from all the other maps plus with campain you touch a bit on the map of ascension. But in campain you don't get to splatter zombies brains at the map. All though you do get to blow up a rocket and kill poeple who are alive

It's a wide open map, not cramped and I like the idea of putting launchers. Not too easy, not too hard and it's so fun to run around the platform wit the thundergun! The best map ever! (In my opinion)

5 Moon

Because It is the most detailed map with the mystery of the hardest Easter egg with Samantha and you can get all perks. It is not the best at round 1/6/7 but once you get far it is probbally the best map not the worst.

I think five should be five I mean that would be ironic right.

It is the best because you can have jug before round 1!

Hard as a rock. It will sometimes glithc A not allow you to put on the space mask. Then killing you

6 Origins

Origins being so low is a smack to the face of the Call of Duty community. Some of the greatest features ever are scattered throughout this fantastic map. The addition of some classic guns in World at War and creating staffs will always be memorable. Now the Panzers are annoying, but everything else about this map is excellent.

Great way to finish off the zombies gamemode. Although it wasn't the best map, it was certainly satisfying enough. There are four great staffs, allowing each player to have a different wonder weapon for the first time. The giants are balanced, although there should be some very difficult way to take them down. The boss zombie is a great challenge, but not hard enough to be annoying. The tank is cool, I love how it allows you to quickly get around the map, yet isn't as much of a necessity as the bus in Tranzit. It brings back the two-paths layout that was abandoned after moon, thus allowing you to once again make choices about how you want to play the game, rather than following one big loop like the previous maps. What I believe is the feature of this map that makes it so much more successful than the others is the fact that they have added loads of new features without making it 100% essential to use them, allowing you to choose the game that you want to play and preventing the map ...more

To be honest, Origins was the map that saved black ops 2 zombies, and is in my opinion the greatest zombie map of all time. What makes this map brilliant is that it finally combined the crafting mechanics of Blops 2 with the tight design and attention to pacing of Blops 1/Der Riese. It manages to be both complex and simple at the same time without sacrificing either aspect. For example, you can pack a punch easily just by linking the generators, but building/upgrading your choice of staff adds replay ability and complexity to this map, and the diversity of play styles with winding tunnels leading to trenches and open fields ensures you never get bored, unlike other maps like Ascension/Kino. But the reason this map doesn't become tedious like Shadows of Evil is how well everything is implemented into the gameplay. The staffs are not panic buttons like the thunder gun or wunderwaffe, but they are super powerful when upgraded but using them still requires thought, so the map is always a ...more

This is the my personal favourite map in a tie with Mob of the Dead. what made me go for this though is the Easter Egg because oh my God. I'm not going to spoil it but go get it and work it out by yourself, this one here explains how to do it to you. The wonder weapons are awesome, the tank, the massive robot, the trenches and don't get me started on the boss zombie and the amount of challenges possible on this map.

7 Call of the Dead

Offered the best area for "training" and widest variety of motion-altering environments for its time. Atmosphere was dynamic and engaging, plus George always kept ya on your toes. Perks were well placed and movement of map (zombie paths) were very well thought out to be customizable (e.G. bottom of lighthouse door). Finally, one of the best maps for PHD flopper and Stami' up, something missing in Shangri-La and Ascension.

Everyone moans about George but handling him is easy. The layout and surroundings are incredibly fun when you get to know them and as you play more, it gets better and better. People just see george, dislike it, and don't give it a chance!

I'm gonna list my top 5 and comment on other maps a bit. Excuse my spelling

1. COTD: This is my favorite map. I love the characters, wonder weapons, zip lines and pretty much everything on this map. George is my favorite zombie boss. He's harmless if you know what you're doing. I just get the best feeling when playing this map. (Next 3 maps have better music)
2. Moon: super tough but this map stands out. Floating in space is amazing duel wielded wonder weapon is bad ass. Easter egg is the best so far. And lets not forget the hacker! Only thing I dislike is the astronaut taking your perks and teleporting you somewhere awful within an inch of your life.
3. Der Riese: classic and I'm not surprised its #1.
4. Kino: simple and great.
5. Shang ri la: truly a beautiful map wonder weapon made me laugh out loud. Sadly this map is only good with four people because the Easter egg is a huge part of this challenging map.

Ascension is too skill involved it gets ...more

Amazing, challenging and all and all a great map!

8 Zombie Verruct

The challenge was really fun. It required a massive amount of communication and teamwork, and was almost impossible to create a reproducible high-round strategy. The dual starting room was a fantastic creative twist that I really wanted to see return in a future map, and the Perk-a-Colas were a great unique addition to the gamemode and I never would have expected them to become as regular of a feature as they did, but I'm glad they did because they were brilliant.

Other maps get boring eventually, but this one always keeps you on your toes. I do love all of the pre-black ops 2 maps though, even Five.

While playing on Verruckt, I've got the feeling I'm back to WW2. This map has the best Easter egg song, it has a challenging design and it really brings back the WW2 sense.

I absolutely hate this map!

9 Die Rise

So much different than all the others, introduces the trample steam and had a good wonder weapon. Never got board of it and I was much better than tranzit. There were so many places that offered the choices of camping or training. Unlike tranzit which really didn't offer a lot of choice spots

Not a great map, but it was really fun to learn when it first came out due to its mazelike structure. It felt like the layout was different every time you played.

Funnest map, love the bank for quick cash at the beginning, fridge for gun storage at the beginning as well. this allows you to get perks and pack a punck quickly, my favorite map with der reise as #2.

10 Shi no Numa

This is my favorite map for good traps. The starter spot is very easy to start off in. Also the guns are good but they should add in an m16.

This is such an amazing map. It's my personal favorite if only for the nostalgia I have for it.

I don't know why but this map is just plain really fun.

The Contenders
11 Green Run

Just wanna clear this up: Contrary to popular believe, the map is called Tranzit, Green Run is the LOCATION. if Green Run was the map and Tranzit was the gamemode, that would make, for example, Mob of the Dead the gamemode and Alcatraz Island the map, or Buried a gamemode and Resolution 1925 the map. No. That's not the way they were advertised. They were advertised as Buried and Mob of the Dead being MAPS.

Black ops 2 zombie map with several smaller maps within it. Could be split into the maps Town, Farm, and Bus Depot, but technically it is just one big map.

Marlton says "on the bus, the claustrophobia will kick in."
I say, "at nacht der untoten, the nostalgia will kick in."
I miss Nacht der Untoten.

Just becouse other people don't like it doesn't mean you can't give it your own chance. I like how it is the most realistic in how u can go almost anywhere and every stop in tranzit is unique with its own positives and negatives. This map is the challenge I like

12 Nacht der Untoten

It was depressing. So dark and with that bad weapons. I couldn't get to round 10 and if I wanted to hit the box I needed extra help or I would die trying. Best map ever.

Where it all started. I would put this in my top 5 simply based on the amount of fun I had and the amount of time I put into playing it.

This should be boosted, its where zombies Started, Its very easily one of the best even today.

It's the only map I got so yeah bro!

13 TranZit

TranZit isn't necessarily a bad map.

it was literally my first map.

which is why I kind of like it deep inside.

I would say its more fun in multiplayer because playing with people means you can cover the ground.

the things that ruin this map for me are the denizons and the jet gun.

the jet gun also has infinite damage unlike the paralyzer which is basically jet gun 2.0,

also you can fly with the jet gun too,

but what kills the jet gun is its 15 second duration,

and its 24 hour cool down time...

if the jet gun did actually have no breakdown it would have been decent.

TranZit is pretty decent when you have more than 1 player and I say this mostly because I have nostalgia for this being my first zombies map ever.

Personally I find TranZit easy and in a fun way, Die Rise was probably my least favorite zombies dlc map in blops 2, but my least favorite map ever would be ascension, I just found it boring.

I think the bus adds a fun element to the map. I have the most fun with this map when playing with friends

I want to know who it was over at Treyarch that looked at TranZit and though "Yes, this is good. Let's give them this"

14 Buried

Almost worse than tranzit. Its way too easy. Pretty much have all perks and packapunch by round 1, incredibly easy training spots, and even easier camping spots. That and it just doesn't make sense in general. Just boring overall.

My absolute favourite map, it's so much fun and the idea of 'Leroy' is just pure genius! I have spend many hours of time having fun on this map. It is undoubtedly the best zombie map ever! A must play.

Epic map, I don't understand why people hate it. There's so much to do, and the Easter egg is by far the best Easter egg ever.

To have buried make a lot of sense you need to play trazit first and both must be played by the dude in the shorts.

15 Shangri-La

I don't know why people hate this map. It has a shrink ray gun (sorry I forgot its name. I like to call it the midget maker )it has a mine cart for quick and fun escapes and a WATERFALL SLIDE for the same idea. BUT TWICE THE FUN. It has boss zombies, the napalm and screamer zombies. Not too hard to deal with, and those darn monkeys, always stealing your power-ups, if your like me, you will be handling them with no problem. It brings back the monkey bombs YAY and has those geysers are a savior to me. It has tight corridors for extreme fun and spike mores, an upgradion to the clay mores. But the couple things that annoy me are the mud pit, how to pack-a-punch and how hard it is, personalty I think it's the hardest map other than five and verruckt. But those reasons aren't bad from keeping it in the way from being bad. Does it? I think shangri la is one of the best maps for killing zombies. WHO AGREES? Please don't diss this map for unknown reasons, it's a colorful, fun maps with lots of ...more

Beautiful map scenery, and brilliant layout. Also quite challenging, which I like.

The best map. Cool features. A fun Easter egg. A shrink ray. And monkeys. Simply the best

16 Nuketown Zombies

If you don't have black ops 1 then if you have black ops 2 if you play nuketown zombies you can see a significant similarity of the map to when it was the regular none nuked nuketown when it was the multiplayer version of the map.

Best map ever. Love the perk drops. Small, to the point. Only one goal... Survive! No power or annoying parts just plain old zombie slaying the way it shuld be

Love training on the high rounds on this map. 1 player gets yellow backyard, 1 middle, and 2 green

Brilliant map, no mystical bull, survive, have fun with friends, simple like the classic zombies

17 Der Eisendrache

Definitely one of my top 5 favourite maps. I had a LOT of fun doing the Easter (a number of attempts were required, but that was part of the fun). This map has an almost perfect balance of giving you something to do that isn't too complicated and/or boring, that doesn't take too long and that most players will have figured out by their second or third go. The concepts for the bows are excellent and really seem to suit the environment of the spooky castle. The setting and atmosphere of this map are just awesome.. There were many times where I just stopped and looked around for a few moments, taking in all the detail and piecing together the story which is told by your surroundings.

My favroute map of all time. It takes the innovativeness from Origins and the amazing map layout from Mob of the Dead. The map feutures an amazing Easter egg. The map has the perfect balance for any Zombie player. A great place for camping and the training is not that hard. The map also has a great difficulty balance. Starts off easy for a decent set up, and gets harder as the map progresses. The wonder weapon is amazing, and the map features great detail.

Der Eisendrache is an amzing masterpiece of a map. It has the most eopic, over powered and amazing wonder weapon, the anicent bows. It has the best location, an abandoned castle. It is large, but not too large, and it has the feel of a much more refined version of Der Riese as well as the best elements of Origins and Moon, making it the best map.

AMAZING map. It should be in the top 5. It has a super cool setting/story, a really fun Easter egg, and tons of replay value because of how much there is to do! Would recommend 10/10 to any zombies fan.

18 Town

My first zombies map and the best. No stupid things to build or do, just survive.

I don't know why but I love this map, PAP is right there and all necessary perks too, plus great place to train

19 The Giant

Hope you put it on bo2

20 Gorod Krovi
21 Five

This map is brilliant I mean the pentagon playing as the prez and his men is just totally the right idea. I mean the map is hard because of the scientists that steal your gun but it's so cool. What I really like the most is the elevators the secret rooms and the perk machines all put in to a great level.

Hands down most underrated map of all time.

22 Paris

Paris was suppose to be a zombie map. This is true because the files were named Paris

Samantha was supposed to have her base in Paris.

What!? This isn't a zombies map!

23 Revelation
24 Shadows of Evil

Best map ever

25 Zetsubou No Shima

Solid map, right up there with the best DLC maps. A lot of content, well thought out, great Easter egg. A few strange glitches at the moment however.
