CoDz Code of Conduct
Listed below is the Code of Conduct.
Please don't just read numbered points and say "I'd never advertise!" and skip over it, because there are things you may not realize are categorized as advertising, or anything else, that are and you might have already broken them. If you have any questions regarding this, please ask, and have a good time and be sure to follow the rules!
1. ADVERTISING [ADV]:
Rule: Advertising to other users inside the CoDz Forum, whether it be via a post, personal message, or profile/signature links, to buy or view any products, websites, or other service is strictly prohibited. Non-intrusive links in signatures to personal YouTube accounts may be allowed, but that is case-to-case and each will be reviewed individually.
Consequence: The infringing user’s account will be banned, as well as the IP address. Any post with the intentions of advertising will be immediately and permanently deleted.
Example: If you are a spam bot, a hired advertiser, or a desperate website/business owner, this may apply to you. Signing up and making your only post a promotion for your zombie gameplay YouTube channel is breaking the rule. However simply sending links to a fellow forum goer who wants to know where to buy a capture card is not breaking this rule, PMing your buddy a link to a funny YouTube video isn't, etc.
2. DOUBLE ACCOUNTS [DBLE]:
Rule: Creating another account when a a user already has one account on CoDz is not allowed. There is little to no need for a separate account. If you've forgotten your password and need access back to your main account, use the Forgot Password link. Should there be a logical reason outside of forgetting credentials for the double account, contact a staff member immediately with details of the situation..
Consequence: The secondary account created by the original user will be permanently banned given with evidence of double accounts. In addition, the original account held by the user will be temporarily banned as well. Using the secondary account to avoid a suspension/ban on the main account will result in both accounts being permanently banned.
Example: A user creates a double account because they've been banned. If that account matches up the original user and no case has been made to the staff about the reason for the double account, both accounts will be banned after contacting the user.
3. SPAMMING [SPAM]: Spamming is defined as many things, and all of them aren’t allowed. As a CoDz user, you should hold yourself to a high standard and use common sense when posting.
Duplicate Posts -
Rule: Creating a thread that discusses a topic that has already been brought up in another thread is generally frowned upon, as each user is responsible for finding the pre-existing thread and making their remarks there. Cross-posting violations (making more than one post of the same question/answer across multiple forums) is prohibited.
Consequence: The infringing duplicate thread will be either merged (with the original thread), locked, or deleted, depending on the situation. When dealing with two duplicate threads, the staff will sometimes exercise their own personal judgement with regard to the thread’s posts, to avoid conversations being broken up and posts losing their cohesion, as all the comments in both threads are merged and arranged by the date they were posted.
Cross-posting violations will be dealt with by deleting all cross-posted threads. Users are responsible for figuring out the appropriate section in which to post their topic. If you have any trouble you may ask any staff member for advice!
We always welcome PMs from the users!
Example: If two threads are created that both discuss the exact same element of a newly released Zombie Map trailer, they become ‘duplicate posts’, as they consist of identical, or very similar, material. However, if someone makes a thread about, for example, who they think the Pentagon Thief is, and then someone else makes a thread in which they argue that it is actually someone completely different, they would not be breaking the rule.
Moreover, if someone made a thread that came to the same conclusion as the first user’s thread did, it still wouldn’t necessarily break the rule, as long as they brought new evidence to the table (or reevaluated old evidence) while doing so. If they reach the same conclusion, then they will be merged, in which case the older thread will remain, and the newer thread will become a reply to the older post.
Post Pumping -
Rule: Any user that makes a post just to increase their own post count is considered disruptive to the community, and is interfering with the other members’ usage of the CoDz forum.
Consequence: Violations will be dealt with on a case-by-case basis - some users will be warned verbally by PM, others may receive an official warning, and posts/threads may also be deleted (which will make your post count drop again!). Repeat offenders will suffer a Permanent Ban of their account on the forum.
Example: If a user makes a post saying “I agree,” or “We know,” or something similar and they do not further the conversation or productivity of the thread, that would be grounds for deletion of the post. The specific details of post pumping are left for staff to decide case-by-case, as there are a broad range of possibilities, which are quite dependent on the circumstances.
4. FLAMING [FLAME]:
Rule: Posts, signatures, avatars, or PMs that are intended to harass, threaten, embarrass or cause the distress or discomfort to another member of the CoDz Forum Community or any other individual or entity is unacceptable. (For this reason, the emoticon known as “facepalm” has been removed from the forum.)
Consequence: In some cases, warnings may be issued, but flaming is likely to result in Permanent Banning. It is therefore advisable to always be respectful to your fellow members; this does not mean you cannot disagree with someone, but you do not need to tear a person down in order to prove your point, so be careful with sarcasm! The response “I was only joking” will not get you much sympathy.
Example: If a user says to another on the forum that they are stupid, dumb, illogical, incompetent, etc., that is an example of a user tearing another down, and is considered to be ‘flaming’. Even sarcastically saying “Wow, you’re a bright one, aren’t you..” or “Did you figure that out on your own?” would qualify as a form of harassment.
5. OFFENSIVE CONTENT [OFF]:
Rule: Using offensive language in any context is not allowed here at the CoDz Forum. We believe that our intelligent members can make their points and offer their contributions WITHOUT the necessity of vulgarities. Included in this would be racism, sexism, or any other form of discrimination that may end up causing the distress or discomfort of a user or any group in general. Along with offensive language, displaying or linking to offensive content is not allowed at CoDz. Please be sensitive towards others and how they may react to sensitive material.
Consequence: Posts, signatures, or profiles containing offensive language, content, or links will be edited and/or deleted by the Forum Moderators and Warnings will be issued as appropriate. Repeat violations of this policy may result in more severe actions, up to and including Permanent Banning.
Example: You can come up with your own examples for sensitive language, I trust we all have at least a few in our heads, but simply starring out a letter or putting a strike through the word does not excuse its usage, such as f*ck, sh*t, etc. An example of offensive content could be an avatar of the Twin Towers falling with the caption “Burn baby burn!” This is very offensive to many people, and although it may not be so to you, please respect the feelings of other users.
Examples of offensive links include Pornographic, Racial, Defamation, or any other derogatory content. If it does not pass our CoC do not link to it on our site.
6. SIGNATURES [SIG]:
Rule: A user’s signature may only be 5 lines high, 15 pixels high per line and 65 pixels wide per line. A signature must follow all of the above guidelines concerning offensive language and material, and also concerning advertising.
Consequence: If a user creates a signature that violates the above rules, they will first be contacted and asked to change their signature. If they do not comply, someone will change it for them. Particularly horrid offenses will be dealt with by staff in an appropriate manner.
Example: A “good” signature could contain a few links to some threads (as long as they follow previous rules), zombie round numbers, a small image, or something personal, such as a saying or quote. A “bad” signature would contain any annoying “flashy” .GIFs, or any content that would not comply with previous CoC rules.

Following a conversation in the Discord, I have elected to start this thread as the most up-to-date home for all things related to element 115. This thread will also welcome any plausible theories related to the element. Although I do not have much to offer in the way of lore at this moment, I will offer just a basic summary of element 115. Element 115, known as Divinium, is the 115th element on the periodic table in the world of Call of Duty: Zombies. From what is known so far, it is extradimensional in origin and possesses supernatural qualities. Divinium was first scattered across dimensions as asteroids by the malevolent Apothicons. The element can be app…
This is a megathread concerning the Apothicons and different view on them, a product of the cooperation between Caljitsu and Anonymous. The first subject we will discuss are the parallels between the Apothicons and Lovecraft's Mi-Go and Nyarlathotep. After that we will talk about how the Apothicon Overlords could very well be more ancient Elder Gods already existing in the Aether before the Apothicons, the corrupted alien race, came. After that we will discuss the parallels between the Apothicons and Bibical demons and finally, there will be an advocate for why the Apothicons might not be as evil as you think. It's quite a read so I recommend getting something to drink an…
(last updated 2021-02-04) Almost four years ago, the entire community was told that we now had in our hands, the keys to decoding the Apothicon and Keeper languages. Now once again, with @EricMaynard, @Bench_Appearo, and myself (as well as several others) having spend an inordinate amount of hours on it over the past few weeks, I tell you today that, just as with our previous venture into Apothicon, this was not the case. In fact, we had barely scratched the surface of the Keeper Language. WHAT WE KNEW: At first glance, it would seem we had more information about Keeper than was the case with Apothicon. Indeed, @MrRoflWaffles had published the Keepe…
Almost four years ago, the entire community was told that we now had in our hands, the keys to decoding the Apothicon (and Keeper) languages. Now, with @EricMaynard (twitter: https://twitter.com/EricMaynardII), Bench https://twitter.com/bench_appearo, and myself (as well as several others) having spend an inordinate amount of hours on it over the past week, I tell you today that this was not the case. In fact, we had barely scratched the surface of the Apothicon Language. WHAT WE KNEW: From the limited information we were selectively given by MrRoflWaffles, we knew the translations of Apothicon words into English, and vice-versa. As an example, HUMAN tra…
As the years have gone on and the Aether story has gone in so many different, wild directions, we sometimes take for granted bits of interesting lore from the past. In particular, while exploring Der Riese I appreciated all the little clues about 935's purpose, and in particular, the hints at Germany's plan to re-take Europe. "The Giant is rising. Face the might of the Nazi Zombies in their heartland. This is where it all began. This is where the master plan took shape. Is this where it all ends?" "Follow the Master Plan" We can figure out pretty quickly that the "Gesamtplan", or "Master Plan" involved using Group 935's research t…
The Forest as a pocket and its implications. Intro Hello everyone! This is a second thread carrying on from the post made by @anonymous which can be found here That thread began delving into the nature of pocket dimensions, the house, the giant, the beacon etc. (PS: I hope one day @RichKiller will reveal his theory about the beacon as a long form post he has some amazing insights which are not commonly known) But anyway, those topics themselves form an extremely complex web. So today I will be focusing on something a little simpler, a single concept that is easy to digest. The logical inevitability of the Tag der Toten ending. …
So this topic is probably my all-time favorite to discuss because there is a lot of room for speculation and fun connections to be made. Today I want to document all we know about George Romero in Aether, and speculate as the purpose of his work. Intro Let's set the stage: The year is 1968. Broken Arrow is in disarray as their founder, Cornelius Pernell, has been slowly losing his mind and diverting resources towards his ultimate goal of ascending to Agartha. In March, Pernell finally becomes Avogadro, before being locked up inside the APD and Camp Edward is abandoned. Fast-forward to October 1st, 1968: up-and-coming film director Georg…
I'm starting to think “The One” is another Biblical allusion in zombies, specifically the Devil and Hell. The Dark Aether seems to parallel something akin to Hell. First of all, the Dark Aether exists beneath creation. This placement is similar to Hell being the abyss that Satan and his minions dwell in after being cast from the Heavens. In both cases, the location doesn’t have to literally be “beneath” creation. Rather the metaphorical aspect of a banishment of some kind is the most important. Secondly, the Apothicons have always had some demonic flair to their aesthetic. The best example being the “mark of beast” in Shadows of Evil. The mark on the char…

Reading the first book of @RadZakpak's novelization of the zombies storyline got the old gears turning regarding the functional mechanics of the MTDs in the zombies story, and I now have a new proposal, based purely on imagination and the observable capabilities of the various models we have seen across the Aether story. Two of the major questions that often arrive in discussions of teleportation are 1) how is the subject matter analyzed and treated within the device and 2) how does the object manifest at the destination. Two common proposals are 1) that the original sample is structurally analyzed, documented, and consequently destroyed, the receiver then reasse…
First of all: A hella lot of credits to @Tac whose comment I have used for a lot of the intel that follows. In fact, a lot of the Nova-6 part of this thread comes close to plagiarism of his ideas, and therefore I would like to dedicate this thread to Tacolai, my man. It is essential to know that the development and experimentation of the Nova gas and Element 115 took place simultary. What we know about Nova-6 is that work on the initial version of the gas began in January of 1943, when Adolf Hitler wanted "more unconventional solutions" to win the war. Throughout World War II, Dr. Friedrich Steiner did meticulous and frustrating work in chemical weapons, earni…

(Reposting here because I accidentally posted it under Research and Development thinking it was the proper spot of Asylum and don't see a way to transfer it from there to here.) As we all know, there's plenty of mystery surrounding The Giant, especially regarding the weird radios, Maxis doing the Hide-and-Seek, and Icarus being on the roof of the building behind the power switch. This time a question might actually have the simplest answer. During the climax of Mob of the Dead, the souls (JUST the souls) of the prisoners are transported to the Golden Gate Bridge. But this time, the plane doesn't crash because Weasel meant to bring them here. So what happens t…
This thread is dedicated to the one and only @Tac who discovered the link between Mars and CoDZ eight years ago, igniting a discussion that has yet never ended. First of all, I ask you to play this music while reading this thread. The mystery began with the Shangri-La mountains, something Jimmy Zielinski, the head Zombies developer at that time, started tweeting about one day. There is one mountain in Shangri La that is especially striking, seen from the rope bridge above the waterfall. This mountain range seems to resemble the mountain in the map’s loading screen as well, where we see it behind the Vimaña ascending from the planet’…
(If you'd prefer to watch and/or listen, you can find the companion video here) After some thought, I felt my prior thread required a sequel, as there was just too much mythological background left unexplored. As such, I strongly recommend you visit the prior post in order to make sure you can follow along with this one. Specifically, we will be examining the mythological backdrop to the Aether and Dark Aether, specifically from the Norse myths, and how this can be used to help us going forward. Disclaimer: I am not claiming that any of this is canon, merely an inspiration for elements of the Storyline. Laying the Groundwork Our first introduc…
Lately, in preparation for the launch of Der Bunker, I have been studying and indexing all the significant statements made by all characters across all the zombies maps to date to build up a canon 'repository,' and it was during one of these sessions that Nikolai mentions the Ray Gun being a "hot plasma" weapon. Although I am a dedicated realist as regards the Zombies universe, I have never given the Ray Gun and how it works much thought until today; so over the course of this disquisition I'll be exploring a process that could explain in detail how the ray gun (wunderwaffe DG-1) worked. A few things to keep in mind as we go: ***DER RIESE *SERVANT* SAMPLE A00359*** …
If you'd prefer to watch and/or listen, you can find the companion video here Introduction With the announcement of ‘Die Maschine’, we received our formative introduction to the Zombies Storyline of Black Ops Cold War - a sequel to our previous, ten year story - dubbed ‘The Dark Aether Storyline’. For those who were paying a modicum of attention, the notion of a “Dark Aether” should be at least somewhat familiar, as it is referenced explicitly in the ending of Tag Der Toten. This, however, is far from the first explicit mention - and by delving into the realm of allusion and speculation, we can scope out echoes of this conceptual opposite of the Aether,…
Ok so first off, an introduction to Projeckt Riese. Between 1943 and 1945, Nazi Germany spent countless resources not excluding their own prisoners (many if not most lost their lives in the process) to create seven underground structures within Germany-occupied Poland, as well as correlating air raid structures aboveground that would lead into these underground structures and labyrinths. None of these seven projects were ever completed; only crumbling remains of hardly-reinforced tunnel systems remain today of the underground systems, however this is irrelevant in this scenario because we are going to a world where that's not the case. Nacht der Untoten, the m…
First off, I thank @Lioss10, @Tac, @RadZakpak, @PINNAZ, @NotAnAn0n, @anonymous, and @RichKiller for helping me bounce around theories on Discord and/or supply details to help me with finer details I missed. This post will only be discussing the Vril Artifacts themselves, not so much the actual Vril Energy. We have encountered several Vril Artifacts throughout the Zombies Storyline, although most came to a point at Moon. In Black Ops 2 there was little to no emphasis on Vril Artifacts, instead focusing on the Global Polarization Devices (which can be considered to be conduits for Vril themselves) and in Black Ops 3 the only instance shown in non-Chronicles maps is the Vril…

Hello again, comrades. Welcome to the Order of Forgotten Mysteries, the series of threads where we take a look at forgotten mysteries in the Aether story that have never been answered, take a look at them through a microscope, and (usually) don't find that answer. Today we are going to discuss the place that started it all, the place that set us on this journey, a lonely, desolate airfield we all know as Nacht der Untoten. We all know Nacht is significant to us because it is the first Zombies map by Treyarch, which introduced so many gameplay components and intrigued the masses with a creepy, mysterious world full of undead. But what is signi…
Sorry if this seems rushed, I've had to retype this three times due to computer issues. Anyway, as I was listening to the new song for Shangri-la, one sequence in particular seems interesting considering that all these song take place from Samantha's point of view. [youtube:cowiqkyi]O7YAHQQQkcQ[/youtube:cowiqkyi] I might find my light tonight, Hide myself from sight and try to fight. My nine eyes are fading by the blight. Go wright knight, fulfill my whim tonight.

Hey all, Last saterday I promised @Tac that I would make a post regarding the role of the Vril-Ya and Lovecraft mythos in our Zombies lore. Understand that, currently, I am in a rush and run out of time but I planned to release this tonight. Since this concerns a long and deep subject, I thought I could release it in parts. Most of the chapters are already finished but I haven't included (1) the references and (2) the last chapters and details. Keep in mind that this is a WIP project and it isn't complete yet, but I thought you guys might appreciate some reading material this saterday evening. Therefore, enjoy, but keep an eye out for updates! In the Beg…
Devoted to @RadZakpak, who's discussion on the Discord pretty much involved this entire idea (so all kudos to him) and @MixMasterNut, who's Moon loading screen analysis continues to provide a lot of support in my threads. Shangri-La is the prototype of Die Glocke Die Glocke Die Glocke, also known as the Bell, was a purported top secret Nazi scientific technological Wunderwaffe. It is a metallic object said to be between 12 to 15 ft tall and about 9 ft in diameter, in the shape of a large bell. The device ostensibly contained two counter-rotating cylinders which were be filled with an extremely unstable radioactive mercury-like substance, violet in co…
Soviet Union and China are big part of the Nazi Zombies game mode. But there really hasn’t been that many threads looking really into them so I decided to make one. The biggest part on this has to be the Ascension Group. Organization directly working for Soviet Union similar fashion to the Group 935 that worked for the Reichstag. After the world war II Ascension Group was founded. It was organized by Soviet General Dragovich for the purposes of pushing forward Soviet weapons development. Many of the former Wunderwaffe program and Group 935 scientist moved into the Ascension Group after their own organizations had dissolved and some of them were secured in Operation Ol…

This theory is a little different from what I usually like to do. It reaches for some things and presumes others - a dangerous combination when trying to write a good zombies theory - but it's so damn interesting, I've been working on it on and off for months on gathering information about it, and even if there's a kernel of truth, it might just change everything. WHO ARE THE ILLUMINATI? Contrary to popular belief, the Illuminati are/were a real organisation, not just the stuff of conspiracy. Founded in Bavaria, in what is today Germany (throughout the middle-ages to renaissance, as with many European countries, Germany was constantly splitting, reforming…
I want to once again thank @EricMaynard for the contributions. Just with the Apothicon Language that we deciphered ( https://www.reddit.com/r/CODZombies/comments/f13fao/the_apothicon_language_decoded_for_real_this_time/ ), this was just as much a team effort. I hope you enjoy the theory: One question held by many players during the final map of Black Ops 4, Tag Der Toten, was where were Doctor Monty and the Shadowman? Both appear and are referenced heavily in-game, and even if one takes into account budget arguments, surely it would have been possible for some sort of appearance, even only in the campfire dialogue with the characters? No, this was a deliberate dec…
