Best Call of Duty Nazi Zombies Maps

The Top Ten
1 Der Riese

Der Riese is the quintessential Zombies map. It brought us the joy of Monkey Bombs, the rush of a daring escape through the Teleporters, and the thrill of Pack-A-Punching for the first time. Even more so is the layout. Two distinctly equal paths to the power switch; a Pack-A-Punch that doesn't kick you out; the Mother-of-All-Train-Stations, the Catwalk... The Wunderwaffe DG-2 is still to this day my favorite Wonder Weapon, because of the raw POWER that even a 10-year watching his brother play could understand. There is not a single thing that could be made better on the World at War original.

This map had everyone on the edge of their seats when they saw its trailer. Going back to WaW when zombies just started developing a story to go along with it. It introduced teleporters and the Pack-a-Punch. It also carried on previous favorites like perks and 2 wonder weapons (Wunder Waffe DG2 and Ray Gun). Plus throw in all the new guns that can be obtained by using Pack-a-Punch. New strategies and map layout made Der Riese unique. It was so good it was brought back for Black Ops (Like the other great WaW maps). But it will also be brought back for BO3 as a bonus map, seen in a trailer released by Treyarch. That is why Der Riese is the best zombie map EVER.

Brought all the staple elements we have today. Awesome map design and atmosphere, Pack-a-punch, teleporters, easter eggs, monkeybombs and the CATWALK! Der Riese is famous for a reason, it in my opinion was the balance between fun and still reasonably deep. It was a great send-off for WAW Zombies, and was the best out of the four, and in my opinion the best map Treyarch has made.

This was my favorite map since I first started playing zombies back in 2009 and it still is today. Nothing can beat the legendary Der Riese! Long live Der Riese! Best map ever. It has all the core elements of a good zombies map: wonder weapon, dogs, pack a punch, perks, and traps. Who could ask for more?

2 Kino der Toten

Kino is almost the perfect zombies map. There are lots of places for players to train zombies without going too far from one another and making it possible to always pick your friends back up after being downed. There are all the necessary perk machines to make it to late rounds plus there is Mule Kick to help players out even more. Pack-a-Punching weapons is not too hard on this map either because you are safe in a room overlooking the hordes after teleporting. The only downside to this map, in my opinion are the crawlers that explode; however, compared to other zombie maps the crawlers are really not that bad.

Kino der Toten is often the first map you'll play, and it is perfect. The song, 115 is awesome. Do not know what else to say. The layout is pretty damn good. The placements of weapons are good. They scale with the difficulty. The prices for opening doors are good. The only minor problem I have with it is Dogs, wich is something more personal opinion.

This map is still one of the best zombie map I've ever played. It was simple, but so fun and heart racing. Playing this map with my friends was one of my favourite co-op experience I've ever had in a game. If someone has the thundergun, you know he is going to be the one who must revive players in tight situations.

In my opinion, this is a great map for any player. It has a somewhat simple layout and has good perks to help with higher rounds. Also, the pack a punch is very easy to get to and protects the player from the undead.

3 Mob of the Dead

This map is very near and dear to my heart. The characters, the gameplay, the Blundergat all make this one of the most innovative zombies maps yet. The map looks amazing, and it actually sends a chill down my spine every time I come across the deserted cell blocks and corridors. The Easter egg wasn't overly difficult or complicated but was so much fun to do! Brutus was an amazing zombie boss, who was actually able to do more than just kill you. The Hell's Retriever and Blundergat are also 2 of my favorite weapons to date. There's so much fun to be had with this map and so many secrets to find in the zombie infested Alcatraz.

By the way, Ray Liotta as Billy Handsome. 'enough said.

This map is great for the hardcore player and the casual zombies player. For the casual you can get the blundergat from the box and pack a punch it for the sweeper. The hardcore player can get the free blundergat using the hells retriever and convert it into the acid gat and then pack a punch it into the best wonder weapon ever, the Vitriolic Withering. You can geth the upgraded hells retriever ( the hells Redeemer ) and get the golden spork. It also has some great traps, wall weapons, easter egg, easter egg songs and the pack a punch is so unique and fun to get to. It also introduced the afterlife mode which also inspired beast mode in Shadows of evil. To sum it all up. Great map. The only problem I have with this map is that it can be a bit too easy. But you can make up for that by doing challenges like the two box.

MotD is best because there are so many things to do--such as craft a plane to get to the Pack-a-Punch Machine, or feed the Cerberus heads to obtain the Hell's Retriever--and yet you can have a great time playing without having to do all the side-quests. The map is huge but cleverly designed, you dread the moment that Brutus appears, and there are so many things to discover that it brings a whole new enjoyable element to the zombies experience!

This map is beast not to mention a thousand things to do. And it has a tommy gun! I only play this map and origins because they each give their own zombie experience and provide hours of gameplay while kino, der reise, and call of the dead are all straight forward maps with no storyline or experience and only an hour before you get bored of the same thing over and over.

4 Origins

At first, I was disappointed with Black Ops 2's zombie maps, but that all turned around once we got to Mob of the Dead. However the highpoint of BO2 had to be Origins. The gameplay was very entertaining and Treyarch obviously did their best to give us their best experience yet. The 4 elemental staffs ere amazing wonder weapons, the wonderfizz machine was an excellent addition to the map, and, most importantly, we got the original 4 characters back. The combination of weaponry, gameplay, buildables, and a fun Easter egg make Origins my favorite map of all. It would be nearly impossible for me to list all the things I love about this map on here.

Oh yeah, and don't forget the Panzer Soldat. By far the greatest boss zombie to date!

I just love the characters the game play... Just everything about this map screams EPIC! The intro movie is stunning and the new LMG is amazing! Plus the new Mystery box and pack-a-punch looks so cool! The new perk-o-cola really helps out if your short on money and the juggernaut zombie ads a good challenge to the map. Plus the staffs and super fun and the easter egg provides an amazing zombies experience unlike another map before. I love this map!

In the end it is the best all around map because it never gets old. You can cylce through the staffs so that there's something new each time. You always have something to do because of the staves, upgrading them, the thunder fists, challenges, g-strike and last but so not least the awesome Easter egg, by far the most original, interesting and fun map.

Great storyline bringing back the best group of zombie slayers again. Also there isn't a better weapon in Call of Duty zombies history than the lightning, fire, ice, and wind staffs, which is the main reason I can't get enough of this masterpiece.

5 Ascension

Ascension is the best map following up from Kino and WAW. There was so many new things. The space monkies, the matrushka dolls, the Gersh device, PHD flopper, stamin up, landers to travel on to get out of trouble and also unlock Pack a Punch. It had a ton of training areas and traps to use to get to high rounds. Ascension also introduced getting more than 4 perks by not letting the monkeys touch your perks. It's by far better than Der Riese and Kino Der Toten. Should be number 1

The greatest and funnest map by far, can be as fun and hilarious with friends as hard and challenging with them as well, the addition of the prone bomb is awesome, the space you ge to roam is perfect, not too much like call of the dead. And most of all is memorable and a satisfying experience. The thrill of excaling a horde by the floating platforms never gets old.

This map has space monkeys, Gersch Device and PHD FLOPPER! This map is the perfect size not to huge and complicated and is one of my personal fave maps and I love having to get that pac a punch its not to hard and has the perfect amount complicity.

Amazing map for trains, fun, and pure insanity. Ascension was the best looking map of all time, but also the funnest of all time. Everything about this map showed Nazi Zombies at its finest.

6 Call of the Dead

This map was epic. I loved the iconic characters that you played as and how the zombies would zip-line when chasing after you. PhD flopper was extremely effective because there were so many places to dolphin dive from and running from an angry George Romero was always nerve wrecking. Best intro movie in my opinion as well

You get rid of George and this is the best map, but I hated him because he would ruin my trains and was just annoying; I get what they were trying to do, but it wasn't effective. They should have offered a "No George" mode.

Almost perfect. Just needs a special zombie round for max ammo, as ammo seems to deplete quickly on this particular map...

The characters are half of the fun on this map. The other half are the crazy wonder weapons, zip lines, and water slides.

7 Moon

Now the newest biggest and badest map of all. The physics are great fun, thanks to area52 you can now ge jugga nog before round 1 and it has an awesome and lengthy easter egg in which you blow up earth. Oh and if that isn't enough you get the new wunder weapon the wave gun. Like a thunder gun that can change into 2 mini wunda waffes plus it looks around 20 times cooler. (also has, in my opinion, best loading screen and music). MOON for the win!

I was never a big fan of zombies until rezurreztion came out. Moon made zombies so fun... I liked how there was 8 perks so sometimes you could buy PHD FLOPPER or the next time you could get MULE KICK. It was a lot of fun experimenting on that map. I remember the escavator was down and I went through a door and got killed by it. It was unlike any other map. It was fun learning how to play it unlike the basic maps like Tranzit or Ascension. MOON IS THE BEST ZOMBIES MAP EVURR

Yeah its by far the most annoying map but it has my vote for the vibe it brings. Plus it's the only map anyone can hack!

This map is the boss because its simple, straight forward, but it is is has a boss, is exciting, and your on the...nevermind, just think about it

8 Der Eisendrache

Der Eisendrache is by far the most well done, epic, and most engrossing zombie map yet. It is the map that has taken the best things out of Origins, Mob of the Dead, Ascension, the Giant, and the Moon, and put them into one such as an amazing atmosphere. Very good training and camping spots, as well as the best, most beautiful and overpowered weapons of all zombie history, the Ancient Bows. This map represents the pinnacle of zombies, and is everything that Treyarch has learned from before put into one, creating this masterpiece of a map.

Der Eisendrache is one of the best zombie experiences to date. It has a feel reminiscent of MOTD with the hanging bodies and combines that with the staffs from Origins. What you are left with is a map with plenty to do, a boss to keep it interesting and one of the most emotional EE cutscenes just behind Zetsubou. Brilliant map, essentially Origins 2.0, and more Origins is never a bad thing!

I do not know why this map has not been put higher on the list. It has the 4 wonder weapons aspect of Origins and the map is completely seamless and interwoven. There are so many good training spots. every time I play it, it's a blast.

This map deserves at least fifth place. The bows are fun to build and are useful. Pack-a-punch is very simple. A lot of innovation such as the anti-grav. The map looks beautiful. I can't think of any problems with it.

9 Nacht der Untoten

The smallest map and the most easiest to get around in. You can get to very high rounds especially with friends.

Just fight threw some zombie rounds, go to the mystery box by unlocking the door with "Help" written on it.

(Do not unlock the staircase, in the first room you spawn in. It backfires later on.) Then all of you grab power weapons (preferably machine guns.) and then you clear the staircase right next to the mystery box, and then just go to that are with the grenades, all of you just camp there. You should also have a player or two buy the grenades and throw them at the door where most of the zombies come from. Grenades are unlimited. (Some zombies will come through the barricaded window right next to the door.) But if you unlock the staircase in the room you first spawn in, it leads directly to the room with grenades. It will be much harder to survive if you unlocked that staircase. But if you did not then no zombies will come through there. Conserve your ammo ...more

This is the very first zombie map that came out and I find it the funnest. The atmosphere really proves that you are surviving from a zombie attack and since the map is the smallest one you have to be smart about where you are going to hold off.

Nacht is easy till round 30 with 4 people camping. The best is getting a growing and a ray gun and have nothing else to do with your points but constantly buying grenades sometimes it gets boring. I give this map a

I enjoy the old school weapons especially the flamethrower and I think it has a great atmosphere. I also enjoy how challenging it is. Nacht der untoten is my favorite map by far.

10 Buried

Buried is the perfect map because you can get seven perks without having to do anything super hard, its easy for beginners but presents a good challenge when played the right way. When people say the the ghost stealing your money and the PaP being far away makes it too annoying but it makes it more of a challenge as you have to set up for going in which can be really easy and quick or really hard and take you until round 20. Also the Remington New Model Army is the perfect handgun, better than the ray gun and the ray gun mark II (also introduced in this map). All in all, it is the perfect map for any experienced player looking for a challenge or any noob looking for easy map to say he made it to a high round on.

Buried is such an easy map. There are so many camping spots that people just sit in then whenever zombies actually do overrun them they just jump through a hole in the wall or something.

Still a good map and I was able to get the Galvaknuckles on round 1. I was just lucky to get double points straight away.

Transit: kinda weird, big map. Die Rise: I guess treyarch was making some thing cool then accidentally hit the "destroy" key on their custom pc. Motd: great map, cool layout and story, fun and complex. Buried: a masterpiece by treyarch. Origins: Set the story for bo3 but otherwise was trash

It's my favorite map I don't know why. Maybe because its easy and fun. And I can't play a game by my self and last past round 4. I can last to round 11 by myself on this map. And the parlizer is fun to fly around with

The Contenders
11 Shi No Numa

Classic map. Great setting with entertaining characters. Very simple, which is what I like. I dislike the complexity of later maps. Also had great spots to hold down with your friends, or you could run around and stay alive. This map is what sold me to Zombies. By far the best for me.

One of the first maps, this one introduces Hellhounds, the flogger, and pros that spawn randomly. A load of fun once you memorize each section of the map!

This map is amazing for those that don't remember it you need to go back to play its right up there with Der Riese. If it had Pack A Punch it would be in the top 3.

I love the huge open spaces which are perfect for training in. Also, the enclosed hallways really help and the zipwire, perks and box are the icing on the cake!

12 Nuketown Zombies

The map is awesome, and suit for the average survivor looking for a challenge. The cars and trash scattered around make it hard to move, but simple once you get the hang of it.
No lava!
The map can be surprising, considering that you never know when-or what perk will fall from the sky!
You can jump out of windows and into the sky! (But also the ground. )
Creepy and surprising clock that makes a creepy sound every 100 kills! (We need some horror, guys! )
The shed that has a free power up!
No major Easter eggs...
Maybe if you could remove the War Machine grenade launcher, it would be better.
More game modes!
One last con, the perks take too long to fall, like one time it took 7 rounds to wait until the quick revive perk fell.
A major Easter egg, yo!
Perk-A-Colas should have a certain, and not random, round to land on the ground.
How about more game modes?
Over all, the map is awesome!

So fun, I know the map Nuketown from multiplayer. So it is easier.

Even though this map is difficult, it's still a blast to play!

Best map to learn zombies on. It's easy and has cool weapons.

13 Revelations

The map is a little bit sloppy on the movement and how to get around. They could have brought back more maps and done a little bit better of a job on it. The Easter egg was pretty weak as well. They could have done a lot worse though.They included fun wonder weapons and made it not too difficult to get set up on the map. All in all, great map.

14 Town

There is 1 thing wrong with this1. It has the worst PaP place ever in lava with a horde of zombies after you and you just have m1911 and ray gun and you PaP your ray gun on solo and you get downed without quick revive. Rage Mode! Treyarch likes to troll us with PhD and all but with PaP treyarch has gone nuts

Best map for the newbies, and also very fun for the experienced players if you want a straight forward game of zombie slaying. Nothing to build or power to turn on etc..

So easy love it, by the way so much better than origins. You need reasons, okay lets go. people like it because of the players weapons, Eastereggs, or caharacters. Take awy all of that and, it sucks. Town is so fun. Who cares about back story. I am just here to kill zombies

Great map, with pack a punch, six perks and a good size, this map should at least be in the top 10.

15 The Giant

What makes it better than der riese is that the perks randomize, the box randomizes, the wunderwaffe DG-2 isn't overpowered, and the stamin-up/deadshot Easter egg is one of my favorites. Also, the fly trap Easter egg changed a bit and gives you a reward in the end, the perfect zombies map. They made der riese harder which is their greatest accomplishments

Just got The Giant and I haven't played shadows of evil since. This could be one of my favorite maps and in my opinion better than the original.

Like the same as der riese with bo3 guns with Easter eggs.

Great remake of Der Riese and the Annihilator is cool.

16 Verrükt

Come on guys, this map introduced the perks and it's behind five. Besides, it's so fun with friends because you're separated in the beginning and try to find each other and has a great place for training.

The original zombies map to have power and perks. How is Green Run even on the top 10 list but this isn't? Plus the creepy noises in the backround make you wonder if there is just zombies here.

"Verrukt and Gorod Krovi walk into a room and chat."
Gorod Krovi: There's nothing in your map, just perks, so boring.
Verrukt: Pay your respects to your elders. Without me there would be no perks.

17 Gorod Krovi

Gorod krovi uses principles of mob of the dead and weapons from older elements and combines them in a way that just makes it the greatest map. It's a simple map with chores to do in order to get pack a punch just like in MOTD and you get to ride a dragon! Just like in MOTD there are challenges to that rewards you with a weapon such as the gauntlet of siegfierd, we also have the fan favourite PPSH-41 brung back after 7 years! The brand new mark 3 which is super fun to use and the new awesome shield in which you can use as a weapon, as well as the time challenges which reward you with swords. Let's not forget the interesting mysteries that have been solved such as Peter Mccain and also Sophie in the computer, as well as the best boss fight yet, Nikolai 1.0 in a deadly robot machine! The content and simplicity as well as climate that Gorod Krovi brings is so perfect for CO-OP and that's why gorod krovi will be one of the most played maps in zombies, therefore making it one of the ...more

There is just so much to do and so many weapons! The map is challenging yet not a chore like Zetsubou. Amazing map.

This is amazing nothing to hard but not to easy just perfect. Also The PPSH

18 Verrückt

Vurruckt is my favorite zombie map of all time! The tight spaces just make more challenging and the fact that it is set in an asylum just is a perfect place for a zombies map. Easily the creepiest zombie map out there and that is what makes Vurruckt so damn good!

I find this map really fun to play on and whenever I go tryhard on it I get well good games. It has awesome atmosphere and I like how your in a asylum its just fitting for a fun zombies experience.

Underrated zombies map, first to introduce many core staples of Call of Duty Zombies, such as perks-a-cola machines and power. Creepy setting. Solid layout. Gets better the more you play it

I vote for Verrüct because it is just pure insanity. its very good fun because it just has a different feeling to the other maps. Verrückt is just pure chaos, maybe its just me but almost all of the other maps just feel a little to staged and slow-paced

Its difficult but can be very good fun. best played with an organised team of 3 or 4 and with a clear plan of action to survive into the high rounds

19 Die Rise

Apart from the possibility of falling to your death quite regularly, this is probably the easiest map to set yourself up on. The AN94 on the wall just makes things so much easier straight away, and you simply don't need to hit the box until the higher rounds as a result. There are sooo many camping spots, made even easier with the trampolsteam to block zombies coming out of windows behind you. Waiting for perks to arrive is just part of the challenge of the map for me, and it isn't an issue at all. You can get to the bank and gun locker right at the start of the map if you wanted to, giving you an even easier head start. The only downside is the fact you can die quite quite often from falling. If you're paying attention it's not bad, but when you're on the run from a hoarde of zombies, or simply want to get around quickly, sometimes to don't hit the run/jump button quite hard enough, and you simply just fall off the edge, completely undoing all of your hard work in the most ...more

With Narrow corridors and a sense of verticality, Die Rise adds a whole new sense to the zombie community. It punishes players for not watching their step when they fall down elevator shaft or of the building itself. It provides unique buildables as well as as well as making you wait for your perks. It introduces new zombies that provide a challenge but reward you well.

Die rise is awesome it just takes zombies to a different level. It's big and loads of fun with the trampolstine and the wonder weapon the silqifire. This is truly the best zombie map ever there's not that many areas to train but that's a good thing it makes people think more how to hold of the zombies. Die rise for the win!

It's a fun map, but the characters suck, and you must train. Plus if you die or skip something on accident, you have to walk around the whole map, and land some jumps and stuff. It was a good idea, but these problems were just extremely annoying.

20 Shangri-La

Fun map. Amazing loading screen. Good easter egg song. Good atmosphere. Cool bosses. Amazing wonderweapon. Interesting storyline. Most mysterious zombie map. Good size. Waterside. Minecart...
Definitely my favourite zombie map!

Pretty difficult to play and the Easter egg is pretty difficult. This is map is not for the casual zombie player.

Come on! A mine cart, awesome weapons including a shrink ray. A water slide! Napalm zombies. It's a temple. Pretty hard map to play though

The newest zombie map; It's classic with new innovations.

21 Bus Depot

If you like a challenge. This is a great thing to to try.

Only Jesus can play that map.

This is the best by far.

I have a really bad itch.

22 Shadows Of Evil

This is a very interesting map. It has some very good wall guns and unlike the other maps the mystery box isn't completely filled with bull guns. This map is also one of the more difficult maps so it takes more skill to survive. The theme of the map is very cool and the song matches perfectly with the theme.

I thought this map sucked but then I learned all the stuff you can do and it is awesome. Its not the best map in my opinion, the best map is Origins, but Shadows is a great map with a lot of cool new things and it is really fun and interesting. This map also introduced Widow's Wine which is a great new perk.

This map is probably so low because people haven't seen this on the front voting page and nobody really votes anymore so nobody see's this, but if people were to vote then this would be at least in the top 10 if not top 5. This map takes zombies to a whole different level, and I mean A WHOLE DIFFERENT LEVEL. It has the biggest/longest Easter egg ever and it's one of the most challenging maps ever made. It takes skill and strategy to succeed on this map.

This map is so underrated
All because it's the first map in bo3.
Fun atmosphere, enjoyable characters, and the pap proccess can be done before round 5
This map is fun. Screw the noobs that can't do the stuff that makes the map fun.

23 Ancient Evil
24 Green Run

Transit is awesome you get 4 different locations and also get to visit Nacht Der Untoten, the bus was an awesome feature which let you get about the map easier, the idea of teleportation was great and the bus was also a good feature, even running around in the fog was good fun because there were always lots of funny moments that happened. The Easter egg is also pretty fun to try and do, I've been close to completing it a couple of times now and have still never been bored of it once!

This one is very underrated. I love making strategies with friends and all, but the denzens are very annoying. Also, it seems like there's a lot of space, but most of it is taken up completely. There's also not many options and the jet gun takes forever to build. The denizens are just a minor annoyance, they're never gonna actually kill you.

I love this map; I love how they took off from the simple zombies to such an interactive atmosphere! This map will probably define all future maps of zombies and I love all the maps derived from this, giving players the option to play on smaller " old-fasioned" maps.

Very fun and addictive. There are so many areas to train in and so many Easter eggs to be found. I just love the tower of babel. Other than the denizens, this is the perfect zombie map.

25 Zombies In Spaceland

I can and have spent hours and hours in this game. It's big enough and intuitive enough to have a lot going on. The theme park element is fun. The wonder weapons are nice. The visuals are great. And the Easter Egg is fun and challenging. All in all, my favorite.

Treyarch's zombie maps are usally the best however this is my favorite map why? because of several reasons

1. The setting is at a theme park
2. Its set in the 1980s so that means the map is colorful
3. You play arcade games which include old school Activision games like Pitfall
4. It plays songs from the 80s in the background

Got me back into zombies
