Top 10 Best Call of Duty: Nazi Zombies Maps

Presenting the top 10 best zombies maps from the entire Call of Duty series starting with the original Black Ops Zombies mode. Maps are ranked based on votes cast by gamers like you.
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.

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.

3 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 loves it so I have to play it. The only one I like less is the horrible Transit maps from Ops 2, which was a total misfire.

4 Origins

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 from quickly getting boring unlike the bus and turbine in tranzit, Tramplesteam in Die Rise, Leroy in Buried, etc).

5 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.

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

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!

7 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.

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!

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.

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!

9 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.

10 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 and money though. Every few rounds one of you will need to go back to the mystery box, to fight a new weapon, but you have to be quick though. Zombies get faster and stronger each round, so there is no time to waste. Conserve your ammo in very powerful weapons, like the Ray Gun, and very powerful machine guns. If you end up with a bad weapon from the mystery box, take it if you are running low on ammo in your current weapon, but try and get a good machine gun. This make take a few tries, since the mystery box is random.

The Contenders
11 Bus Depot

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.

12 Buried

Buried is the perfect map because you can obtain seven perks without having to do anything super hard. It's easy for beginners but presents a good challenge when played the right way. When people mention the ghost stealing your money and the Pack-a-Punch being far away, some may find it too annoying, but it actually adds more challenge as you have to set up before going in. This setup can be really easy and quick or quite difficult, taking you until round 20. Additionally, the Remington New Model Army is the perfect handgun, superior to the Ray Gun and the Ray Gun Mark II (also introduced in this map). All in all, it is the ideal map for any experienced player seeking a challenge or any newcomer looking for an easy map to boast about reaching a high round on.

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 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!

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.

16 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..

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

17 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 anticlimactic fashion.

18 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 greatest maps in call of duty zombies.

19 Ancient Evil
20 Farm

No one has bothered saying anything so I'll mention why this map can be good. If you want a challenge that limits you then this can be really fun. I personally don't consider this an actual map but if you are bored of the same old stuff this can be a fun twist.

21 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 awesome stuff. Its like Indiana Jones... BUT WITH ZOMBIES... SHANGRI LA TOO THE MAX

22 Voyage of Despair
23 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.

24 Rave in the Redwoods

Great characters and scenery, love the crossbows, charms, perks and rave mode, very innovative with the challenge stations and love the pack a punch island!

25 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.
