First when your in the main menu strapped onto the chair tap either (LB and RB) or (LT and RT) I really dont know well if you do that youll break free from the chair and after that go forward a little bit then turn to your left then when you see a computer use it and type in this code "3arc" (either with a "c" or a "k") when you are finished you have then unlocked all zombie maps.[color=red][/color]

Cheat to nuketown

Set the speed as fast as you can and break the window in the yellow house and get on the ledge on the front of the house then sprintjump on the truck in front of you and you will be stuck then turnaruond and camp but if you move you will fall this is a glitch

Get out of chair

Then look down at your hand and press the left and right triggers at the same time. if you do this enough you will escape from your chair. move to the back of the room. go up to the computer and press x. then use these codes listed when you type.

When You Start The Game Go The Right Window Where The M14 Isn't At Break Only Two Parts Of The Window Then Rebuild It Then You Should Have Two Wooden Sticks One On The Bottom And One On The Top After That You Have To Jump On Those Two Sticks And Then On Top Of The Door Then Go To The Edge Of The Door And Jump If It Doesn't Work Keep Trying

Dog glitch

You have to unlock the stage (kino der toten). When dogs come go to the stairs closest to the tele porter. Then crouch at the edge of the stairs away from the tele porter enough were you can't see the edge of the stirs. The dogs should sit in front of you. It takes a couple of tries to complete. If you want me to send more cheats message me on Facebook. My name is shyheim gonzalez. Trust me I have plenty of cheats

Thundergun Easter Egg Improved

You can get a Thundergun in the campaign mission 'Numbers'. After interrogating Dr. Clarke, several enemies come down the hallway. Now your supposed to shoot the Nova 6 gas containers, but I found that's practically impossible. Heres an easier way. Throw all or some of your grenades down the hall, the more you throw, the better. Now shoot the one closet to you, as the explosions won't get to it. Now turn around and go into the little office place behind you. There is two things here; one is intel, and the other is a tape recorder. Crouch down by the tape recorder and you should see a black tape. Hold X to pick it up. The screen should shake. Now continue the level until the part where you jump onto that balcony adn into the room where Weaver moves the fridge. WARNING: You must watch Weav..

Secret Doll on Ascension

In the room with the stakeout, go over to the table and press "X" on the mini Hitler doll for a secret.


OK so if you know how to get out of the chair go ahead and get out but if you don't repeatedly press RT and LT go to the computer behind you and hold X when you get in type 3arc unlock and you will have all maps

Get a thundergun on the numbers mission

as soon as the mission starts blow up all the nova 6 containers then turn around and go benind the shelf thing, there should be a cassette player hold X at this and you should have the tape, continue with the mission untill the jump into the room, there sould be a cassete player here too, hold X at this and you should hear beeping, wait and the screen will shake, then the thundergun comes out the wall, hope this helps

Dead Ops Arcade

The Dead ops arcade is an Arcade version of "Zombies". The view is third-person and is in a bird's perspective. To unlock Dead Ops, go to the Main Menu and Press RT and LT at the same time a few times until Alex Mason gets out of the chair. Now, head over to the computer that is behind the chair that you just got up from. Hold X until a screen pops up and enter the code "doa". Congratulations, you just unlocked Dead ops Arcade!


How to start out in a new prestige with lots of CoD points

When you're level 50 and going to prestige, it is almost certain that you'll have loads of CoD points, and therefore you buy all emblems, layers and such, all the things that you don't loose. But those last ones? Keep 10 000 cod points, and you'll be able to start out with 30 000 in the next prestige. Here's how:

1. Be ready to prestige

2. Enter a "High Roller" wager match

3. When the map is locked, prestige, the game has taken the buy-in

4. Be "In the money"

When you're done with the game, you're a prestige level one, but you start out with all the money you won in the wager match Smile

How to get to the antenna on black ops in summit

First you go to the control room that has a whole bunch of computers then you climb then run and jump on the top then press a(x for ps3)and it should let you up in the catwalk then break the window and double tap a(x for ps3)and you should be up there!

When you land turn all the way around until you see the box then shoot the open lid of the box again.when you do that you'll have a 45%chance of getting the ray gun a 15% chance of getting the thunder gun and a 40% chance of getting another weapon .if you do the same thing again you'll have a 65% chance of gettting the ray gun a 25% chance and a 10% chance of gettng another weapon.if do the same thing without 1 sensititivy 2 times(5 sensitivity) you'll have a 60% chance of getting the ray gun a 15% chance of getting the thunder gun a 50% chance of getting another weapon. If you try getting the box without doing nothing you'll have a 50% chance of getting the ray gun a 15% chance..

Increase your Chances!

You can Increase your chances of getting the Ray Gun or Thunder Gun in zombies. Or just a good gun, like the HK21 or SPAS12.

Thunder Gun: With M1911, shoot 4 times in front, 4 times in back. DO NOT SHOOT THE MYSTERY BOX!!!

Ray Gun: 4 times in front, 3 times in back, with the M1911. DO NOT SHOOT THE MYSTERY BOX!!!

Good gun: have seven bullets in your magazine of both of your weapons if possible. My M1911 was 7|7 and I got the HK21 twice.

Move the Box

To do this cheat You need three people. Have one person lay down in a corner, facing the walls, then have someone else run and dolphin dive onto him. You will both need to be revived. You will hear the little girl laughing like you would if you got a teddy bear in the box. Then the third player can revive both of you and keep going

Money glitch

Simple you will need two people rank 50 in combat training lots of money on combat training then the party leader goes to online match making the second person goes to edit playrer card then the party leader switches to combat training the second now backs out it should say prestige mode do that and all the money on your combat training mode will go to your match making

Array Glitch

This is actually a glitch more than a cheat. With this cheat, I will show you how to get into the book cases on the map Array. First, break the window near the spawn when you are defending the bomb sites in Search and Destroy. Now, climb on, not over, the window and look towards the book cases and stuff to the right. Now, run onto the top, you will then go through the things on the top. Now, head forward and you will fall behind the bookcases. There is no way out of here if you fall behind, so don't go there if you have plans of leaving. Also, the place on top of the bookcases, where you were before you fell in. makes a great camping spot.
