  1. Good morning, good afternoon, good evening to the far-reaching ranks of CODZers! I hail you with this message, and beseech thee: attend! Over the last few months, the CODZ YouTube team has been working hard to grow the CODZ Community's visibility in the YouTube sphere, with aims of bringing more attention, and passionate zombies fans to the forum and Discord discussions. Our ambition as administrators of a channel on behalf of this ancient and storied forum is to find a balance between recognizable leadership that will be recognizable to new visitors (currently the cast of *Podcast

  2. Well the decision to outsource the final 2 Aether maps to a different studio to focus on a feature that would ultimately be scrapped entirely and to set up a story that went nowhere sure turned out great, didn't it.

  3. Yup, like @Lenne said, Jason has left Treyarch. Whether you like him or not, you gotta give him props that he was the main guy responsible for giving Zombies a MUCH needed increase in development resources. And he had a vision and sticked to it, unlike others who just kinda went from one map to another randomly with NO idea where the mode would end up.

  4. 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 themselve

  5. So recently @RadZakpakshowed me a quote from Tag, which hopefully will allow you to see the storyline in a new light. Here is the quote from Tag, coming from Samantha: This quote compacts a lot. Recall the SoE note from Richtofen: So here we are introduced to the idea that there is a string holding the universe together. As Richtofen describes it, 115 is the fabric of space-time, the multiverse, what holds everything together. String theory, of course, is a well researched topic in physics. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/String_theory In t

  6. October 13th, 1945 – Samantha Maxis is teleported to the moon, where in panic she runs into the MPD and becomes corrupted by its power. This is the beginning of a theory of mine which explains how the Primis timeline exists and the unfortunate fate of not only our heroes but the entirety of existence itself. The Origins outro cutscene is somewhat confusing still, 7 years later. The idea that Samantha is playing with model toys of the Ultimus crew has always intrigued me. We see that Eddie and Sam argue about who’s turn it is to take control of their game. This is oddly sy

  7. Did you think we were done with Nacht? I sure did, until yesterday: We've got near-confirmation that we are returning to Nacht in some form. The original German building? The TranZit version? Some new one? We can't say for certain yet, however, I'm very excited by the prospect that we will see an expanded Nacht der Untoten with an entire underground area, with all the secrets contained revealed. This alone wouldn't be worth replying to this thread, however, I think it ties back to an old mystery: This loading screen in particular sticks out

  8. So yesterday @RadZakpak and me were in a discussion about the meaning of the classic comicbook pages we see as loading screens in Black Ops I and II. What always striked me, is that the style of drawing is different between Black Ops I + Nuketown Zombies if you compare it to those of the Black Ops II Victis maps. Artstyle 1 Artstyle 2 As you can see, the BO1+NKZ comic pages look more childish and colourful, while Die Rise and Buried's look more realistic. Now it was Rad's idea that the comic pages might be the Kronorium from Samantha's point of view. We know th

I severed my ties with @The Meh *shock face* I checked his breakdown, along with other sources, and I believe that his approach was wrong.

  11. Where did the Elemental Stones come from? What purpose do the Runes of Creation serve? What happened to some of the organizations that were at the peak of 115-based research? What is the nature of the Aether, of the Keepers and Apothicons? How do they tie into the deep dark conspiracies that started our journey over a decade ago? If you have these questions and more, me and my friends have a story to tell. And if not, too bad I'm telling it anyway. Over the past 8 years my friends and I have been trying to stitch together a string of maps to make sort of a 'sticky note

  12. Hi, and welcome to my analysis of Kino's ee song 115. As usual, I would comment over other people's interpretations and offer my thoughts. For now, I would go back to my old pal @The Meh, with other people. Also, the lyrics are taken from this drive which @RadZakpakcompiled.

  13. 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, Origin

  14. Regarding our idea that the rockets itself didn't blew up Earth, but the Black Eggs that were transported within came in contact with the three largest 115 deposits on Earth (Groom Lake, Tunguska, Angola/Purgatory Point). This was done intentionally by our pal Maxis to sever Aethereal Richthofen's connection with Earth, as the physical 115 bridges our world with the Aether. Now why would the explosion of these three 115 deposits have the destruction of Earth as a consequence? I think this might be the point where the theory that Earth's Core = (partly) 115 comes into play: the effect of the Bl

  15. Recently, I was looking through the intel from Black Ops 1 and GKNOVA6 for my writing. Specifically, I was looking for information regarding the development of Nova 6. The role of the Gorky-Korolev Medical Company confused me at first. Why would a Prague-based shell company with a Russian name be used by Nazi Germany to develop their secret weapon? Moreover, how would a private, collaborationist entity not immediately be liquidated by the Soviet Union, even being used as a cover to smuggle Nova 6 into the United States? Then I discovered this in @Tac's old GKNOVA6 intel thread. Apol

  17. So @Kenshin9977 found the following in the game files of Zetsubou no Shima: As you can see, the Spiders are being called "Spiders from Mars", and whenever the Red Planet is mentioned in the game, CoDZ is fascinated. It started a discussion on Discord with @Dizzie Bonkers and @ProjectKMR raising some interesting points about Lovecraftian connections as well. All those neat things included, I felt like transcribing it down into a single post here on the forums. So, enjoy!

  18. In any discussion about the comic pages I think it's important to also bring the loading screens from the comics and the Dice presentation (can be found in here). https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1qvQwSXxhzURSFDE8XvDA_hh1_5QEgZHi Unlike what some people think, these new comic books do not replace the older pages: Original nuketown loading screen: Die Rise styled loading screen: In order to delve into the loading screens, you have to delve into Samantha.

  19. So concurrent with the final 8 chapters, I'm going to be working on a V2 of Book 1 to make little tweaks that I think fit better in canon, fix mistakes, remove plot threads that are unnecessary, and just make general improvements. This is gonna be needed before I can put this book out there as a more final product since I started on this version of the book all the way back in 2017 and my writing style and ideas have changed since then with many discussions and everything we've learned in Black Ops 4. For anyone reading this that has read earlier chapters and noticed something that

  20. Latin in zombies is one of the most interesting yet overlooked concepts in zombies. From uses of Latin in hidden notes in Kino to the names main crews of the storyline, the Latin language takes an undeniable part in zombies. Today I want to focus on Latin songs in zombies as well as the campaign, with a bigger focus on zombies of course. I will talk about 3 songs: Ego Vivo, Agnus Dei, and Dies Irae. Ego Vivo Ego Vivo plays during the Shadowman bossfight the SoE Easter Egg. It also plays during the BO3 campaign mission "Demon within" during the T

  21. Is it coincidence that Mob of the Dead, introducing us to the concept of an eternal cycle, was released between the Victis maps? Let's start with the hypothesis: No, it is not. Mob showed us very clearly and directly what was going on in Tranzit, Die Rise and Buried: The characters stuck in an endless loop. A bit more far away, but even Tranzit itself can be seen as a metaphor for this idea, as the map itself is one big cycle with the characters trapped in it. T.E.D.D. told us all along: "Error. Error. Bus transponder not operational. Default into program route cycle" - TEDD

  24. I dunno why, but I've always considered this was about the Der Eisendrache pyramid. So could the pyramid function as some kind of Keeper-style MTD? The thing is, the Group 935 teleporters are tied with Die Glocke, which is said to be an antigravity mechanism. "Travel between dimensions" being the key point here! It's interesting that we place the Summoning Key with Richtofen's soul contained (read my edit below to understand this...) into the Pyramid to "charge" it.

I'd love to see this channel utilized by many people from across the Forums, making it a true community channel which is one of it's kind in the entire Zombies community.

  31. A really cool theory, glad you shared it. Also isn't the Kronorium in Sam's room during the Revelations? Like she was reading it/using it as a script in the House. Really liked your take on Sam's hate for Richtofen reflecting on Primis Richtofen as well. Something that buggers me tho, we also see Ultimis dolls in the House, as well as a map of Der Riese and a couple of other BO1-relating toys. The loading screens of BO1, the comic pages, look very childish. Why could this not be a fantasy of Sam as well? I think it is certain that there are connections between the MPD o

  32. Ultimus ---> Ultimis "Eddie shows concern that Samantha is doing it wrong. What if she is? You can base that around quotes of Samantha in Origins and Moon. One time she is under Apothicon influence and one time she is under Keeper influence. "It’s like a game which is made possible through the MPD." I agree here. Playing games in the house is the way of the controller to play with reality. "Not only this but he dies directly after we can assume Samantha entered the MPD" Samantha does not get to the moon in TG+DE's fracture. This is just another reason to be

  33. I'm going to talk more about the storm here. There is another key quote regarding the storm: The storm is also tied to clouds. There's the following conversation in DE between Richtofen and Nikolai: Here we can see that Richtofen talks about how Nikolai forgets the reason as to why he hates Richtofen (Dempsey also talks about forgetting why he hates Richtofen). Richtofen likes to pose many riddles around in the conversations (as suggested by the conversations themselves), so here I think the use the clouded memories may have double meaning. This ties to the last q

  34. I feel the same way. When I saw the power room and the new additions in BO3, I really wanted to explore those "expanded" sections of Nacht. I'm holding on that Treyarch hasn't forgotten those additions. Like I mentioned on discord, I think it would be neat if the easter egg had us sending Nacht to Tranzit. The only issue would be explaining the updated appearance.

  35. I'm curious if the teaser relates to the "power room" they added to Nacht in BO3? It seemed like a strange inclusion at the time, but if there is more happening below Nacht... Then that's a great bit of foreshadowing!

  36. One more thing I didn't think to add, but as for the Nacht loading screen guy, what if it is Yuri/The Pentagon Thief? I know that was a theory since Black Ops came out, but thinking on it now, there's a period of time between when Yuri is corrupted by Samantha, and when he goes to the Pentagon to get captured. We see in the Classified Intro that after Yuri unleashes the zombies in the Pentagon during Classified, Samantha stops him, and sends him somewhere else through a portal, only for him to later show up a day later in "Five". But where did he go? Perhaps he was sent to Nacht as it was in t

  38. To me HAARP is most closely associated with weather control and Nikola Tesla theories, but a close second is mind control in the Group 601 tower vein and similar theories on Russian towers. And yeah @83457 considering HAARP wasn't actually created until like the 1990s, it appearing on a note in Der Riese to me just means we can take this in almost any direction we want as a community.

  39. Our very first encounter with the House, or rather ‘Samantha’s Room’ as the community called it back then was in Kino der Toten. As most of you know, using the MTD in that map gives the players the ability to teleport to several random places, among which something that appears a children’s bedroom. Because of the presence of the teddy bear and toys, the fans assumed this was Samantha Maxis’s room. When listening closely, one can hear the French 'Nurse Rhyme', also heard at the Der Riese powerswitch, at the Tunguska sign in Shi no Numa and in the minecart in Shangri-La. In Kino it is also poss

  40. Right! It essentially doesn't matter which unstable element it was, Uranium, Plutonium or perhaps more likely, Ununpentium. Each of these elements have the potential to ignite a nuclear event. You mention the Moon rocketheads containing 115, possibly causing this radioactive event. I too think that it might be the events of Moon that resulted in this apocalypse around the House, though I personally am more a fan of the idea that the rockets hit 115 deposits, rather than transporting the element itself. Either way, nuclear explosions containing 115 occur, resulting in the element go

  41. Translated from a spontaneous Discord discussion, to a formal post... Treyarch's Chaos hit me wrong, straight out the gate. This pun may have been intentional. I think the biggest problem with Chaos for me is that I have no interest in an occult-centric, slasher, shock-based, body-horror first person shooter. I'll admit, I don't much like the human body being degraded into a prop intended to inspire horror. Aether Zombies, on the other hand, felt...tasteful (with the exception of the Alcatraz Maps, and even Origins to a certain extent, which were muc

Also appreciate the selectable character aspect of WW2 zombies, even if it might break canon. It's just fun. To extend that, character customization.

  43. Ooh, ooh! I'd like to do date! If I had to pick a date I'd go with August 31st, 1986 since we're doing Afghanistan. Similar to how Buried's location in Angola ties to the US intervention in the Angolan War in some ways, this map could tie into the Soviet-Afghan War we see in the BO2 mission Old Wounds. I choose this date because it is a couple of days before that mission and right in the middle of the war. With connection to ancient Aliens in Afghanistan, we could spin the US intervention to be for something more than fighting the Soviets. Maybe the Soviets are even after it too.

It's also interesting to look at Victis, of which two seem to be infected by 115 in a way but having different symptoms: Stuhlinger can hear the Aethereal occupant whilst Russman suffers memory loss. It seems like different types of delivery methods (consumption, injection, irradiation) have different symptoms. It is classic toxicology: The way a toxicant enters your body affects the effect of it. What is interesting, though, is that I always believed that the brain was the key to all connection between a subject and the Controller. Thinking about it, however, we see headless zombies still bei

It sounds like a genuine pyrrhic victory; a victory that inflicts such a devastating toll on the victor that it is tantamount to defeat. This is the inevitable outcome of any nuclear war. But...what war is this? Initially I was thinking he invented nuclea
