Introduction: Black Ops "Kino Der Toten" Guide

Picture of Black Ops "Kino Der Toten" Guide

Hey everyone!
I haven't played Cod in a while but I recently got into the mood. Mostly Zombies! I'm not actually going take photos of me playing, I'm just going to take photos from google and provide my knowledge along with it. Thanks add anything in the comments below!

Step 1: Starting Rounds

Picture of Starting Rounds

ok so when you first start, there are 2 methods in which you can use.
1. 3 or 4 shots with a pistol then a knife gets you maximum points
2. only knife which saves you ammo.
Personally I do #1 because usually you get a max ammo sooner or later
I always open the upstairs door because I find that way is better. Anyways, NEVER buy a gun on the wall in the begging rounds. after you buy 1-2 doors then you should buy a gun off the wall if you don't find a mystery box on your way. SO on first round it takes 1 knife to kill a zombie, then 2 knifes on round 2, 3 knifes on round 3 and so on. between round 3-5, you will want to buy a door.

Step 2: Later Rounds

Picture of Later Rounds

(ok now I'm mad this whole paragraph I just wrote somehow erased!) anyways...
Between rounds 4-6 you hopefully are in the room with the stake out on the wall. Here you should have 2 guys downstairs killing zombies and 2 guys up the stairs! If you have yet to find a mystery box, you have 2 options
1. Talk with your team mates and open both doors to the stage...
2. Buy either a mpk or stake out off the wall
Dogs are bound to come anytime soon. Stake out was made for dogs. Stand in a corner with your team mates or even by yourself. Wait for a dog to charge you. Not just round the corner but head on run at you! Wait untill he is close to you then give it a good head shot. This will hopefully kill the dog in one shot with a stake out.
I hope if you're all the way in the stage you have found the mystery box. Keep using it (called "Hiting the box") untill you get a good gun.
Thunder gun, Ray gun, rpk, any shotgun, and mostly any machine gun. Don't take a sniper, pistol or rocket launcher unless it's your last defense. If you get monkey bombs, DONT FORGET ABOuT THEM! I always do. NEXT PAGE!!! -->

Step 3: STAGE

Picture of STAGE

Now round say 6-9 you should be in the stage with the power off. 1 person in the back by the claymores. and 3 people shooting through the door you bought to get to the stage. Make sure you stay somewhere by where the mystery box would be there because there is a zombies entrence close by. Once you get over flown with zombies, turn on the power. Leave a crawler if you can and link the teleporter by going inside the teleporter and holding X or whatever button it is for ps3 and wii... then back into the main room where you will push X again and make the link. If you still have yet to find the mystery box, hopefully someone has enough money to open the doors to it. Now prepare for some running. Kill the last zombie once you feel ready and have a good weapon or broke... Here now you should go to the stage again. Start to run around the 2 big prop thingys on the stage. The zombies will crowed around and follow you. A.K.A. Circle method. Once you get them built up, you can turn and shoot them with a machine gun gettimg a bunch of points, or take the long route. Run into the main lobby taking either the upstairs door or the under stairs door. Run all the way around back to the stage slowly. Turn around and Make sure the zombies are following you. Turn at points in which you feel ready and shoot them. Make sure no zombies are coming in front of you! The blue dot in the 1st pic is a space where you or the zombies can come through. Here are some pictures. 

Step 4: Using the Teleporter

Picture of Using the Teleporter

Now when you are over flown with zombies, or just need to pack-a-punch, use the teleporter. Run inside of it and hold X. (other for stations beside xbox) Here you can buy pack-a-punch for 5000 points. If everyone is in there with you, throw frags out into the stage area. And because I have foregoten, buy jugernaut (or jugernog. Don't remember) It cost 2500 points. Other perks you can use speed cola quick revive.etc... keep using the circle method untill the game ends. Clay mores are somewhat efective. You can buy them for 1000 points and you get 2 each round. You can also hide them in a corner and pick them up in rounds that you need them. I can't provide any more besides it's always great to leave a crawler at rounds you can. At least it's peacful for a little bit! Last words of addive. NEVER EVER LEAVE A MAN BEHIND...well unless
1. You can NOT get to him
2. He doesn't have any weapons or any good weapons... THANKS!!

You can also run around the whole place and let the zombies collect up behind you then pour bulets into them. Last time I did that, I got enough to pack-a-punch twice.

that is also what i do

yeah I've been told that befor... kino is not my favorite map anymore. ascension beats all maps... I/or anybody can do a perfect circle strategy. It's so much easier to me. Anyways before I've done the ascension thing ive had 40000points. Too bad I don't first strike... I only play at my friends houses.

DontShoot262 (author)2011-04-19

No, your not supposed to leave anyone behind unless there is no possible way to get them, that's helped me a lot.

well yes I'm sorry i didn't go into it much. If you have a few zombies still and someone is down, dont go for him unless they are all walkers...

When using the teleporter when you use it kill all zombies except one and wait for it to cool down the kill the zombie

yeah i do that

achillies (author)DontShoot2622011-09-20

I agree, unless if you positively know that there is no way to save you're teammate, never leave anyone behind but I do think it's anoying when people get pissed when they die it's like ughh there are other capable people playing too ya know.......but I digress :o* (sigh)

nohumans (author)2016-05-30

i always find the box in the downstairs

AllisterG (author)nohumans2017-02-01

Same here

SengB (author)2016-08-01

The main problem in zombies is ammo. So when i run out of ammo I buy a wall gun, shoot all my wall gun ammo to make money and then go pack a punch it. I repeat this.

SeamusK6 (author)2016-07-06

I usually buy the semi-automatic rifle on the second round then stay in the starting room until round 6. In that time you can amass around 6000 to 7000 points just in the starting room.

This strategy is only really viable on the PC version of black ops due to the amazing accuracy of the mouse and keyboard. It only takes 2 shots to the head to kill a zombie on round 5.

ProGamersD (author)2016-06-04

personally i always knife and try to rush to the bowie knife in the stage room but some of these tips work.

spencern4 (author)2016-04-14

I find it easy to go anywhere you want to but use the power and if you do open the other side dont open the last door

Dead_RJ (author)2016-01-02

Hey aleceatsfood in my map I have a 3/10 chance to get a mystery box in the first door and I wanted to know does it happen to you playing the map?

Catt123456 (author)2011-04-16

It was ok. Most of the tips were for less than average zombie slayers I suppose. You should have also mentioned that the circle method can be used around the whole map. (It is a HUGE circle.) Also, has some useful facts to use. I get alot of info from there. I still rated it 5 stars because if I was a beginner, this would be super helpful

FluffyChicken (author)Catt1234562015-01-29

i use that method and it helps me because after the round ends i link the teliporter and i wait till the zombies are out of there barriers and then i go to the teliporter and when i am back in the lobby i go and repeat the proccess

achillies (author)Catt1234562011-09-20

zombies is kind of a hard mode tho, cuz if there are a few good peopl, there strategies clash and they argue, and people go down, but if everyone else is weak sauce then its like omg I gots to carry all of the team's weight....(sigh) time to go to work, AGAIN!!!

FluffyChicken (author)achillies2015-01-29

I know how you feel. I play Xbox live and there are a lot of people that dont do good so i leave the lobby and join games with my other friends that actually have skill

dragon#1 (author)achillies2012-04-05

i know how u feel. u got a ps3?

aleceatsfood (author)Catt1234562011-04-16

Thanks and I've never done the huge circle... never thought of that but I guess that would work! I don't really use that or any website to help me play. I sometimes watch youtube videos of people getting to high levels then copy their strategy. Like just yesterday, I got to round 30,26 and 26 again with 2-4 people. but mostly it was all me cause they always died leaving me to do all the killing for the whole round!

dbalagna (author)aleceatsfood2011-10-02

Catt123456 (author)aleceatsfood2011-04-17

Look up the syndicate project. Number 1 zombies player solo in the world. Hes pretty awesome

Catt123456 (author)Catt1234562011-04-18

also, it's easy to use the traps on the way around, and buying wall ammo helps as well. The flaw is if you have a machine gun, or are all out of sprint, and can't dodge zombies very well. It works well, but can get boring and split up your team after awhile. It works well on solo or when everyone is dead, but not on a 4 player. I included a diagram

Player 1 Group Of Zombies You (Player 2)

Zombies go to whoever is closest to them. If player 2 is gaining on the zombies, and they all turn around and take him out. Now, instead of that, try this.

Player 2 Group of Zombies Player 1 Smaller Group of Zomb.

Makes sense, doesn't it.

Crimson77 (author)2014-12-06

My personal Favorite is to fire 1911 6 times and stab on round 1 to get 160 points per then fire 7 onrnd 2 while letting them in to get drops. Leave for mp40 room before dogs and aquire mp40 then 2 players upstairs and 2 down till at least round 8 ( HOPEFULLY BOX IS SAME DIRECTION) fall back to stage area without turning power on (KEY) and grab claymores. Place claymores on left side before the window on the left. 3 players stand very close where mystery box location is and all zombies flow single file which allows for easy dispatching of heads while 1 elected player covers rear window. Thia strategy good for 20k points early.

La cacatua carmesi (author)2012-10-12

Must say that if you can upgrade a weapon ( my favourites to upgrade are the two handed c275 calamity jane and the m911), it will give you an stronger firepower if you need to save somebody or to run away.

Instead good instructable!!


LiftAndLove (author)2012-04-06

Me and my firend always try to get the mystery box in the room on the left in the beggining. An unpatched glitch to know its there is to run upstairs on the left up to the barrier. If you see green/blue light in the back of it, then its there.

aleceatsfood (author)2012-03-18

weren't those patched a long time ago? I think the plank on the stage still works but the sentry gun one doesnt

LiftAndLove (author)aleceatsfood2012-03-22

I really don't know. My friend doesn't update his, so it works. I also said that it works if you don't update.

CODKING (author)2011-06-28

dogs always come from round 5-7

aleceatsfood (author)CODKING2011-06-28

good to know. have you played shangri la yet? I know its only been out for a day but I really REALLY dislike the map!!!

CODKING (author)aleceatsfood2011-06-28

is it on black ops
srry but i havent
i was actually referring to kino der toten

aleceatsfood (author)CODKING2011-06-29

yah I knew you were talking about kino. I just brought up the subject of the knew map pack for black ops

CODKING (author)aleceatsfood2011-06-30

o whens that one coming out

aleceatsfood (author)CODKING2011-06-30


CODKING (author)aleceatsfood2011-07-08

ok i played shangri la and ur rite it does suck

aleceatsfood (author)CODKING2011-07-08

It's too small to run aorund and not get trapped. I'm getting really into ascension again =D I'm looking into buying the hardend edition!!

CODKING (author)aleceatsfood2011-07-10

i feel that its easier to knife and get away with out damage in ascension and plenty of running room to dodge zombies

aleceatsfood (author)CODKING2011-07-10

yeah thats why I like it, there's always a place to run if you get overflown with zombies

CODKING (author)aleceatsfood2011-07-12


aleceatsfood (author)CODKING2011-07-12

Have you ever played Black ops on Wii? I just did today at my friends and played zombies. It's so messed up! I dont think you can knife and aiming is almost impossible!

actually, if you get used to the wii aiming, it's a lot more precise than ps360 aiming

CODKING (author)aleceatsfood2011-07-15

no but i use to play w.a.w. and it doesnt even have zombies

aleceatsfood (author)CODKING2011-07-15

it could be a different version. I have one for ps2 but its a different version so it doesnt...
