Research & Development
For those who wish to talk and discuss, or speculate, their ideas for upcoming Zombies maps.
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.

https://docs.google.com/document/d/1EtGWoRLpXmx7Y28OcJB7j6TPJVMIONCF02_T_6ROpoU/edit?usp=sharing I wanted to create an updated timeline which includes the background events of Classified and Alpha Omega as well as Campaign events and real life events that would pertain to our storyline. The above link is what I have so far. I will eventually go on to add the events of the Broken Cycle, probably after the final DLC so we can have a full sequence of events. As of right now, tell me if I'm missing anything, because I would love to add as much clear info as possible to put things into a more linear perspective. I tried my best to only include events th…
Making this post as a repository for all notable resource libraries for the zombies storyline. This list will hopefully keep growing, and feel free to suggest more resources, old and new, to add to the list. Hoping this will consolidate all these resources in one easy to find place to allow for better research. Black Ops: Cold War-related Dark Aether Timeline: [LINK] - Description: Created by @DescentIntoDarkness, a timeline that will chronicle events of Cold War's campaign, multiplayer, and zombies, as well as outside work that ties into this new universe. Die Maschine Preseason Intel: [LINK] - Description: All intel foun…
Hello, all. I've spent a lot of time over the past couple of months working on a new timeline which I planned to use for another project, but that may not come through. But this could be a very valuable resource to some people, so I am sharing it today. This is a timeline that compiles all Aether media including trailers, cutscenes, the timeline, ciphers, documents, etc. into a massive timeline where everything is arranged similarly to the Treyarch-released timeline. I think I have everything here in regards to media, but I could be wrong, and please let me know if there is something I left out. I included like two pictures in there, but would be open to addin…
To preface, I'm working on a video series about the Aether Story - and in it I intend to dedicate some time investigating the oddities and unused material of each map. So I'm hoping with this thread we can start a discussion and learn about the things that never were, collecting the discussion together in one place. If we were to talk about how Shangri-La could have been on Mars, let's discuss why that could be and what it would mean for the story. Or if we talked about Moon being Paris, how would it diverge from the story we know?
We often perceive Broken Arrow as something that falls under the American government, and thereby view cases in which the organization is involved from an American point of view. How could they have gained access to China, an enemy of the US? Did they acquired the mining town at "Buried" via supporting the anti-communist UNITA rebels in Angola? Why is there Russian influence in Tranzit? These are all issues that we may view differently, upon reading the following document: Truth is, Broken Arrow never fell under the American government. It was an initiative by the Pentagon, yes, but the program itself was fully independant with 'Cooperation' as it's mission…
just gonna make it quick and simple. Zombie eyes will always be a part of the Game and they will always come in a variety of colors. So far we have seen Yellow, Blue, Red, and Purple. I personally don't see the difference between orange and yellow so orange does not count. now I ask.... What Color would you like to see Zombie eyes become in the future? personally I think Green or Black.
When Richthofen entered the MPD, dr. Ludvig Maxis told the remaining crew, Nikolai, Takeo and Dempsey and Samantha of his plan B: To sent three V115 rockets to Earth to minimalize the power of Richthofen and so decimate the damage he could bring. None of them could know the unforeseen consequences it would bring. “Goodbye, wife number nine! I do not think I will be able to top that one! She died when I blew up the Earth! Fun times… I will miss her.”-Nikolai’s first reaction of blowing up Earth. A V115 looks like the well-known Nazi rocket, the V2. The range this Group 935 wonderweapon has, however, is much larger. The range of a V2 rocket is 320 Km, the range of a V11…
I've had some many great discussions on Discord that have culminated here. The Storms First, I discussed with @RichKiller the importance of storms in Zombies. We see them all over the place: The "Five" intro cutscene is the first one. Kennedy says this famous line after Nixon freaks out when the zombies are breaking in to the Pentagon: There actually is a storm heard in the background of this scene, meaning one is actually happening on the day of this meeting. We also see storms physically in: Shadows of Evil, TranZit, Nuketown, Mob of the Dead, Origins, BO3's Ascension, Der Eisendrache in the form of the Storm Bow, Zetsubou No Sh…
Alright so in our story we have encountered many popular conspiracy theories such as Moon Nazi’s, Hollow Earth, H.A.A.R.P., John F. Kennedy’s assasination, and the Illuminati. It seems, however, that we have always ignored the existence of another well-known one: the conspiracy in which some Nazi fanatics fled to South America from where they planned to re-establish their Third Reich. The conspiracy that told us Hitler’s death was faked, as he was actually among those fled Nazi’s. Now I believe we’ve found proof for this theory in the Aether’s very last map, Tag der Toten. First let’s get into some history. Operation ODESSA was the codename that was given to t…
The dead of night map in Bo4 zombies is literally one big reference to the character known as "woods" in bo1 and bo2. The character has a tattoo of 115 (the number of the element that starts the zombie outbreak) and a tattoo of a werewolf. In the zombies map "dead of night" there are zombies (really? wow) and in the WOODS there is a WEREWOLF.
* Plays Paraphony, Shangri La’s beautiful loading screen song, on the background* Guten abend liebe leute! I’m sure everyone has had a little basic history on school, but I am asking you: Where did it began? We are taught about the old empires of the Romans, Greeks, Persians and Chinese. We learned about the first human settlements in Mesopotamia, and perhaps a little bit about the ancient hunters, the early homo sapiens, as well. But we must agree that there is still alot we do not know about that time period, still hidden in the mysterious fog of history. Or are there things we do not want to know? Were we the first sentient organisms on this globe? Or has Earth be…
The tentacles of the Apothicans aren't really 'tentacles'. It's more that they're pieces of the being floating in and out of dimensions and that our mind can only comprehend them as tentacles. Carl Sagan's 'Flatland' describes this phenomenon fairly well. In it he explains how a third dimension is not only inconceivable but impossible to perceive by the two-dimensional senses of the inhabitants of the flat land. When a 3D being enters the 2D realm, any 2D, which he calls Flatlander, can perceive only one layer of the 3D being, changing as it enters the 2D realm further. Here are videos of certain 3D fruits (starfruit, garlic, banana), going through a 2D layer …
After I recently scene that you had Tagged me @anonymous I wanted to make sure the proper document was available for others. This was all I had ever recieved from you and I didnt get the chance to really read through it till now. There is alot of things here that are either some what true. However there is quite a bit of revisions need to be done here. Below is a list of things being thrown around as ideas created 5/1/2017 by @anonymous Officially being modified by @RequixEclipse 1:03 Am 8/28/2019. *Unknown Document* Update V.1 Praxis (Ancient Greek: πρᾶξις, Romanized Praxis: is the process by which a theory, lesson, or sk…
(Original Thread) (The following is a transcription of a video by me on the same topic. This was written with permission and in collaboration with Eric and so I feel it is appropriate to give it the same name.) Prior to housing the Alcatraz Federal Penitentiary, Alcatraz Island was held in high regard by the Native American People, and elements of the Aztec mythology permeates the entire map. The most obvious reference, other than the setting of the map itself, is the Hell’s Retriever - a Tomahawk - this being a stereotypical native american hand-axe, however the connections run far deeper than this. First noted by Eric Maynard on May 23 2013…
The Man, The Myth, The Legend "Tank" Dempsey was an American Marine serving in the Pacific Front of World War II, as well as an operative for the OSS through their efforts to steal Group 935's secrets in the developing technological front of the war. Little is known about his life before the war, and he would prefer to keep it that way. In terms of his family, he would only admit to having a 5 year-old daughter, a daughter he may never see again. Dempsey prefers the world see him as a muscled, masculine "Tank" of a man: A lover of a good fight and of a good woman. He is the embodiment of American male exceptionalism of the 20th Century. …
Though known about since Ascension, Richtofen's diary is an item that has taken up somewhat of an importance in the story as of late. Explicitly mentioned for the first time in years by The Timeline, we learn that it was the purpose for journeying to the Rising Sun Facility, in game being represented as the infamous Laughing Book (Keep this in mind), specifically that after reading it, Richtofen began to "form his plan". The issue is, Richtofen starts at Der Riese, awakening his test subjects; they then travel to Manchuria, only to return to Breslau with only the diary in hand - so what makes it so important? After teleporting from Der Riese, the diary is drop…
"Do you believe in the soul? Do you believe that your flesh and blood is a sum total of your existence?” - S.O.P.H.I.A. Realize this is a thread quickly created, not having alot of efford put into it and thus lacking quite some counter-arguments as well. So yeah, criticism as well as more arguments are appreciated. Reincarnation… I've had this idea in my head for a longer time, though it was not untill Alpha Omega when I believed it might be an actual answer to some of our questions. The story of Call of Duty Zombies is a story about souls. This means that in order to understand this, we have to observe beyond one's life. Death is not always the end. …
Buddhism & The Flesh By RequixEclipse "Science has failed us. HE, has abandoned us. In this new world we alone are your salvation, we alone can light way. Here our words. Head our call. There is but one way to enlightenment. Just as they would consume us we must consume them. We are the living and we are the dead...We are The Flesh! We will not starve. We will thrive.” This whole flesh thing is just getting to me and I know its getting to some CoDz members. Here is what I brought together I hope it helps! What is the Flesh? Who is the Flesh? -The soft tissue of the body of a vertebrate, cover…
The Call of Duty Zombies story in World at War and Black Ops 1 were mostly inspired by existing conspiracy theories. Lets call a few: The Illuminati, Moonnazi's, antigravity devices and Die Glocke, Agartha, Area 51, Nazi wonder weapons, Kennedy's assassination, the CIA and aliens. Another conspiracy theory you may know is that the Moon landing is fake. Does this have something to do with our story as well? Lets check it out. "I believe that this nation should commit itself to achieving the goal, before this decade is out, of landing a man on the moon and returning him safely to the Earth. (JFK, 1961)" - Moon level description So, I believe that Bro…
First of all, if you have time, PLEASE watch this video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p4Gotl9vRGs It takes only 11 minutes and that guy explains everything so good. You will notice that after watching that video you will look entirely different to the world around you. If you want a short summary, here it is. And watch out, it takes us beyond the physical and imaginable. Try to be sweet to your brain and stop reading if you cant handle it anymore: So let us start with the 0th dimension. This is really nothing else than a dot. Well, actually even less than that, since a dot has a width and a length, while the dot has not. It is really nothing more …
There is a main and true storyline. Where it ends is simple if you are able to recognize where similar events meet, but 1 is slightly different. The difference is noticeable and from there you’ll see where we actually are post BO3. Now I want you to forget what you know. Imagine yourself in a frozen forest. Here’s some food for thought: Now go to Zombie Timeline on the site or on the Official Call of Duty site and really look. The desktop view of the timeline is recommended.
There are 16 lyrical songs produced by Treyarch Sound for the Easter Eggs in the Zombies storyline. There are also four playable characters. That evenly divides the songs into four groups. While it might be... pareidolia... to mark this... I don't think it is. I found a few interesting connections when separating the songs into four distinct groups. The first group includes all of the music from Call of Duty: WAW Zombies, and one song from Call of Duty: Black Ops Zombies. They are Edward's inner thoughts and conversations with the other four. Lullaby for a Deadman - Edward Richtofen's thoughts about himself, including parts of what he thinks about the oth…
First of all, sorry for being gone for a few days. I had trouble with signing in but eventually resetting my password was the key. Now I am here with this kinda absurd apologize: Anyone in here ever seen Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull? A movie released in 2008, three years prior to Black Ops I. We have seen that the movie had inspired the developers of Black Ops: Zombies multiple times. Spoiler I watched that movie recently once again, now mature enough to actually understand the whole backstory of that movie. And honestly, truly a lot of the content re…
I have been toying around with this theory for a while now. I just posted it on the Codz reddit, but I feel it also belongs on Codz. I believe this quote from the Zombie Chronicles timeline gives an interesting hint towards the true nature of Monty and the Shadowman. “In the beginning, there was only the Aether and the Keepers. Among them were two beings who would later be known by many names. One would be known as Doctor Monty and the other as the Shadowman” The second line appears to indicate Monty and the Shadowman were former keepers; the “among them” meaning “among the keepers”. However, if the second sentence only refers to the keepers, …
Gorod Krovi, a map taking place in an fracture of the original universe. A universe in which the Battle of Stalingrad has grown into an even more bloodier conflict that seems to never end. A universe in which the Nazi Group 935 has created Dragons. Many people over here, including me, seemed to dislike their sudden appearance, without any background/story why they are here. No explanation: Group 935 just seemed to breed these creatures out of nowhere. But after doing some research, I found out that this might not be true. As you might know, the Nazi party stimulated the racial purity of the Germanic people, with Aryan ancestors, origination all the way back to t…
