Call of Duty: World at War DLC Map Pack 1

Verrückt ~ March 19, 2009


The Call of Duty: World at War Map Pack 1 expands the addictive COD multiplayer experience with four new maps. Players fight through the burning streets of Berlin in "Nightfire" and take up battle positions in fortified Japanese bunkers in "Knee Deep." "Station" offers a bombed out underground train station, and the Nazi Zombies return in "Verrückt" (Zombie Asylum) featuring more weapons, new Perks-a-Cola machines and electroshock defenses.









Hints of a Storyline – Brian Tuey

Part of Zombie Mode is figuring out what is going on.

Here are a few other examples...


What relevance do the numbers have on the walls in Asylum?

Is that a bible verse on the wall?

Do those squiggles mean anything?

Who is banging on the doors in the water room, and why do the Marines not try to rescue him (or her) ?

Why would Nazi's be in an asylum, anyway?

Who (or what) is this Devil voice we keep hearing, and why does he (it) continually throw us bones (power-ups)?

Why were there Marines in Berlin after the war?

Who is Teddy and why is he a liar? And who wrote that message? And who was it written for?

And your very good question...who is this little girl?

Maybe its all just ambience or maybe its all coincidence. Or maybe, there's something unexplained going on here...

What do you think?

Power Switch ~

Power Switch

Verrückt is the first map to feature a ‘Power Switch’

The Power Switch has a detached Left Arm from the elbow to the hand which is grasping the lever

Turning on the Power activates the ‘Perks-A-Cola’ Machines & the ‘Electric Traps’.





Verruckt: Turning on the Power





A Little Homage to ‘Lost’


After turning on the power, if you stand in the corner next to the Mystery Box, you will hear the numbers "4-8-15-16-23-42". These are the numbers from the TV show Lost.




Brian Tuey

Have you found the numbers?


The numbers? Hmmm. If by what you mean is written on the walls. hmm are you trying to tell me there is MORE. lol. This is awesome! Once I just think i found everything.. I found the mini map, machine guns, fountain turret, zombie sign behind the power room. hehe. I had fun. But no i dont think i have found those yet.

haha I found it! The machine in the power room. Thats awesome!

Brian Tuey

lol. Nicely done. It’s just a little homage to Lost since those machines reminded me of the Dharma Initiative :)







Perks-a-Cola ~



Verrückt is the first map to feature ‘Perks-A-Cola’

You purchase Perks from a vending machine & drinking a perk will give you an added ability.

Double Tap Root Beer



Double Tap Root Beer Jingle


So, every once in awhile something like Nazi Zombies comes along to really challenge a sound designer. I'm not talking about gun sounds, or even zombie sounds...I'm talking about old school radio jingles!


As soon as the idea for the Perks-a-Cola machines came up, the opportunity to do something fun was obvious. So, we licensed some cheesy sounding music, and our internal writer (Craig Houston) came up with the lyrics which we recorded and produced in house. Male vocals are sung by Craig Houston, with Elena Siegman doing the backup 'kid' vocals. Yeah, the same Elena that sings Lullaby for a Dead Man.


Anyway, Double Tap Root Beer is our favorite, so I thought I'd share the high quality stereo version of it. Enjoy!


Lyrics ~

Cowboys can't shoot slow

Or they'll end up below

When they need some help

They reach for the root beer shelf

Double-tap double-tap double-tap rootbeer (4x)


Double Tap Root Beer Jingle








Speed Cola



Speed Cola Speeds up your Life!

Ok...Jingle # 2. Speed Cola.


This one was fun. Just before I headed out to Brazil earlier this year, I was listening to a lot of bossa nova (you know, to get in the mood). At the same time, we were having trouble coming up with a name for the Sleight of Hand machine. I mean...that doesn't really sound like a drink.

But Speed Cola sure did :)


So, given the trip to Brazil, and the newly named machine, we thought, lets do some Latin inspired music for this one, complete with Elena belting out the vocals. Well, she couldn't make it to the studio the day we recorded Craig (we were going to do a duet). Craig sounded so perfecly inspired that we ultimately just used Elena for the 'tag-line'.


I've been asked to include the lyrics next time so here are the lyrics for Speed Cola!



Your hands are slow, your movements sluggish

Your lack of speed, just brings you anguish

Just take a sip, you will move faster

Just try it now! And speed is mastered

Press those lips against the only one that really moves you

Speed Cola Speeds up your life!


Speed Cola Jingle








Revive Soda



How about a little Revive?


So, Revive Soda Poster. By the way...the guy in that picture is Kandarp. He's a kick ass programmer. And Revive Soda Model. Anyway...he looks revived to me.

Same story as the others---all the lyrics were written and performed by Craig Houston, produced in house at our studio.


Lyrics ~

When everything's been dragging you down

Grabs you by the hair and pulls you to the ground

If ya wanna get up

you need a little Revive

If you wanna get up

you need a little Revive!


Jesse Snyder said...

Just played Asylum for the first time since I left Treyarch. Loving the jingles, and the Perks-a-Cola turned out awesome! The sound on this level is top notch... great work guys!

Brian Tuey said...

Hey man...good to hear from you!

Glad you like it :)


Quick Revive Jingle












Reach for Jugger-Nog Tonight


So we're back again with our final Jingle. Jugga-Nog. This is actually the one that kicked off this whole 'lets do jingles' for the Perks machines. Something about the style of the machine and the name "Jugga-Nog" really said, "YOU NEED TO MAKE ME SING!"


Lyrics -

When you need some help to get by

Something to make you feel strong

Reach for jugga-nog tonight

Sugar seduction delight!

When you need to feel Big and Strong

Reach for Jugga-Nog tonight!


Jugger-Nog Jingle

I think this is some type of cryptography or riddle cipher, such as a Francis Bacon Cipher, which can make sense because of the limericks in the Black Ops Terminal titled ‘John Banana’. (See Der Riese Datenbediensteter Below)


I don’t think this has ever been figured out.







"Your enemy, despite his superiority, must also be at the end of his strength. It would not be the first time in history that a strong will has triumphed over the big battalions. As to your troops, you can show them no other road than that to victory or death."

Chicora Meteor

On June 24, 1938 a meteorite fell in the vicinity of Chicora. Named the "Chicora Meteor", the 450+ tonne meteorite exploded approximately twelve miles above the Earth's surface. Only two fragments of the meteorite were found following initial investigations. They had masses 242g and 61g, and were discovered some miles short of the calculated point of impact of the main mass - which is yet to be found. Two more small fragments were found nearby in 1940.

**Please use Agency standard cyphers for operative identity.**




We successfully inserted CWZGUTCT into Group 935 as a research assistant based out of Munich.  Current location is unknown, but his last transmission suggested he had been transferred from the Der Riese facility to a top secret location known only as Verruckt.  Most recent communique indicates that the 935 experiments are barely under control.


Attempts to secure all viable Group 935 research of Element 115 technology have been unsuccessful. 


We fear that CWZGUTCT identity has been compromised.  Sending in a Marine Recon unit to extract CWZGUTCT from the asylum before it is too late.  Operation leader will be one HVZJZQUZQTTYMPJMRTTQYM.


The asylum must be contained at all costs.

John Banana

Wed Oct 5 1955


TO:  Bush, V.

FROM:  Oppen, R.

SUBJECT: John Banana


Dr. Bush,


I was browsing the Verruckt archive and found an interesting scrap of paper.  It was found in a small room with nothing inside but blood stains and an empty Browning.  Wasn't there a "John" in the expedition to the asylum? 


Here is what the paper read:


"My name is John.  They call me Banana.

I once worked at a Tex Mex cabana

But now I am here

As walking dead near

With nothing on me but a bandana."


It would seem this "John" fellow felt compelled to write a limerick in his final moments.  Fascinating.

What a coincidence.  I, too, found one of these strange limericks in the Verruckt archive.  Like this one:


"I once knew a soldier named Smokey

He slapped me on the head and awoke me

Turns out he was dead

I cut off his head

Yet but headless he still tried to choke me."


I fear this poor man "John" may have lost his mind in Verruckt.

Another One

Mon Oct 24 1955


TO:  R. Oppen.

FROM:  V. Bush

SUBJECT: Another one


My friend,


I found yet another of those limericks from the Verruckt archive. Here it goes:


"Despite the scary, anxious feeling

Killing walking dead is appealing

My first kill felt great

Felt like my first date

Kicking their brains right up to the ceiling."


I feel like the boy who wrote these was trying to tell us something.  I look at the meter, the chosen words, but nothing comes to mind.  Perhaps you will see something.  Maybe it's the letters?


DK-MFK.  Do you think this means anything?  And then there's this one:


"Smokey and I were trapped in a room

We accepted our impending doom

'Til we noticed a monkey

Which seemed kind of funkey

Until we threw it and it went boom."

This John fellow must have been losing his mind.  Monkeys that explode?  Preposterous.  We should discuss this over coffee.
