Following the instant success of this game mode, Treyarch released two DLC maps, one called Verruckt and the other named Shi No Numa. However, it was the Der Riese, the third DLC map, that had the biggest impact on the zombies’ mode as it introduced key elements such as the Pack-a-Punch Machine, Teleporters, Monkey Bombs, and the Bowie Knife.

Call of Duty Black Ops

Treyarch took the mode to a new level with the first black ops game. It featured five zombies maps. These include Kino der Toten, “Five”, Dead Ops Arcade, Ascension, Call of the Dead, Shangri-La, and Moon.

Furthermore, it introduced new perks and wonder weapons that players could shred zombies with. One of the main reasons that Black Ops Zombies is still iconic is due to the introduction of the Samantha Maxis storyline.

Black Ops 2 and 3

While Black Ops 2 and 3 showed drastic improvements in terms of the gameplay and maps for Zombies, they introduced some elements that thoroughly confused players. For instance, the Black Ops 2 storyline featured events taking place in various multiverses. Additionally, Black Ops 3 introduced the Beast and rituals that you had to perform as the character in order to upgrade your weapons.
