  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. There are many people around to appreciate, older and newer. Selecting just a few leaves me with a bit of uneasy feeling, but I have come to understand that User of the Month is truly about showing appreciation and not about glory coming from popularity. I really appreciate everyone around, with no exception. There are certain people who deserve a shout-out for their recent great work: @Rapt has brought many interesting ideas to the (sacrifice) table, with threads such as "The kronorium should be read upside down", with great attention to smaller details that have significance in

  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. 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.

  5. 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

I swear I'm not shitposting when I nominate @Lenne for triggering a viral pasta outbreak on the CODZ Discord that was super amusing and had a fun, moral-boosting effect, as members new and old transformed their usernames into pasta-puns, or just generally labeled themselves with types of pasta and shared the pasta gifs and memes. How did this help the forums? Well, it was delightful to watch newer members jump right into the fun and silliness that fed the genuine, lighthearted, and fun atmosphere that has always been C

I'll begin with the story fanatic @clueless: Not merely does his brain seem to contain a vast amount of knowledge, his theories and comments are always a joy to read. Not only that, his comments on others' are often very extensive and well-written, and open a new, outside-the-box point of view to certain things. Here he posted an eye-opening theory about the Hanford Sanatorium and Tranzit's background, an interest

  9. 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

  10. 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

  11. 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. The song talks about the four characters (Ultimis), not about Samantha. The sources I used are as follow: This for what's in bold, while the rest is from this video. The lyrics are in quotations.

Before I forget it or something. haha The first person who should be in the mix as well is good old @Tac for his work in regards to the viral thread, which is still ongoing and I also can't wait to see how the timeline thread will look like as soon as it is done. Also let us not forget his voice on the Podcast der Toten. Which brings me to my next nomination: @RadZakpak it is not without reason that he is pretty much at least mentioned once

He's also had tons of interaction and speculation on the Discord, and made some great comments on older theories on the site. 2. @NotAnAn0n - He kicked off this month right with his thread on Element 115 and Edward Richtofen: A Miner's Son.

  16. 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

  17. 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

  18. 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.

  19. 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

  20. 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

  21. 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

As my eyes caught this thread I knew instantly what you speak of: The fact CODZOfficial has so many different presentators and directors, such as the PDT team with guests, Thor with his analysis recently and Nabrzhunter's 'Debunked' videos back in the days, is something both unique and full of potential. 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.

  29. 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

  30. 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

  31. 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

  36. 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.

  37. 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

  38. 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

  40. 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.

Nothing wrong with that, though, I always liked it how Black Ops I and II had many bad box weapons, which made the gamble more exciting and fun. Love the smoothnes of that gun.

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.

Highly disagree here. This is a truth that he would "Tell them later, not now, tell them later". (DE Richtofen) Meanwhile Richtofen says in the giant "I must remember, they others can never know".

Notice the zombie symbol etc. Now look at the pages inside when cover is the correct way up.. Look at the paths on the right hand side of the book. They are clearly the paths from the left side of the timeline but flipped. Also notice the Lunar Lander and PaP on the left page ingame are from the right page on the timeline. This means the timeline we read needs to be rotated 180 degrees to align correctly with the symbols on
