  1. KEVIN SHERWOOD - ALONE A Lyrical Analysis They buried a well where the seven fell Our volunteers die by machine and living doors lie unforeseen now This first verse explores the key duality of the song, that of the old storyline and the new, and specifically how they are related by cause and effect. As some of you may know, “The Well”, within the context of Kevin’s music, is an abstraction of the idea of Knowledge, Mimir’s Well or the Pierian Spring, if you like. “I Am The Well” deals - among other things - with the idea of how this know

  3. Hey everyone! Hope you are all enjoying Cold War as much as I have been. I have been grinding out the camo challenges as I’m REALLY excited to show how bad ass I have been at zombies and get that Dark Aether camo All joking aside I’ve came up with a mini strategy that may help everyone with a few of the challenges especially the critical kills. The Strategy So the strategy is pretty simple and doesn’t take too much to set up. For the first 10 rounds you want to be using the knife to maximise your points as much as possible. Keep one

  4. Hi All! Hope everyone is keeping well during this pandemic and I wish you all the best through these hard times Just a quick update incase anyone is wondering, I decided to go for a little name change from “Blurryface” to “ZombiesIsKey” No real meaning behind it other than wanting a change and it being my username for almost everything for a while now. Although with this, I would like to perhaps start my own YouTube channel where I can upload videos to share with you lot of lovely people. Hope this is in the right place too Stay saf

Note 2: The cipher was padded with the letter Z at the end so that the length of the cipher will divide in 3 (this is a standard process that goes in certain ciphers). While it is technically possib

  7. @clueless- Clueless currently still has the UOTM role in discord, but it's deservedly so. Clueless only joined in August, but I can scarcely think of another person who better embodies the CODZ spirit. @Tac- Tac's coverage of PTP is vital going forwards. Without his like, we would have lost GKNOVA6, and so it's equally important to recognise the same role for PTP, in my view. @RichKiller- I sometimes feel that Rich and I are a bit of a double act, as we do often clash, but that level of friendly disagreement is vital, and as pointed out here, to be able to keep up with

  9. 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.

  10. I don’t want to be that guy who already starts to speculate about the next maps not even one month after this game’s release, but well, it’s what we do. Speculating about new maps. In this thread, I’d like to ask you about your personal hopes and speculations for upcoming DLC maps. Please exclude spoilers from this thread. In the intro cinematic of Die Maschine, we see Weaver sitting behind a desk with monitors, featuring maps of Morasko, the Ural mountain range, Berlin and Vietnam. As Morasko has already proven to be one of the locations, I assume the other locations may be home t

  11. Hi All, I know there is a clamoring for information on this game. Last week I uploaded a guide to GameFAQs on the game that covers everything from basic levels, The Wild, Room of Fate, you name it. I'm not going to copy/paste the guide here because it changes so often with updates, but I'm willing to link it here. I've also written guides for DOA1 and DOA2 and both have been endorsed by David King, creator of DOA. https://gamefaqs.gamespot.com/ps4/298467-call-of-duty-black-ops-cold-war/faqs/78743/about-this-guide Please note that the Room of Fate is currentl

  12. Really enjoying Die Machine so far! Beat it in "Die Machine Solo" mode and today managed it solo in standard "Die Machine" mode. (Playing it solo in the coop mode is a little more difficult as the heavy zombies have armor and some prices are a little higher) (EDIT: Heavy zombie armor is in solo now also, didn't realise it was a patch.) Mechanically I don't have any gripes, I love the mode and love that it's more solo friendly than previous titles. Although I do hope that the next maps don't have 4x WWs to build. In solo I dislike juggling 4x upgrades in my head at the same time. Li

  13. Firstly hello everyone, this is my first post here on the forums. Been reading posts created by others but never had anything I felt important enough to write about... until now that is! Do you ever feel creeped out while playing Die Maschine? Do you ever feel like you're being watched? I know I sure was whenever I played the map, but the place I felt the feeling the most wasn't in the depths of the Project Endstation bunker but instead I felt it the most in and around Nacht. I couldn't figure out why so I got to exploring and eventually found something that caught my eye.

  15. I owe you a more elaborate explanation. I feel like we were introduced to Asian spiritualism in Die Rise: the first mention of energy fields, the resurrection step, the step in which we had to mend something electric (Galvaknuckles) with our character's living flesh, the whole "begin anew" thing, .... The idea of chakra's, energy fields in the human body, originate from Asia. It is by some referred to be electromagnetic in origin, like the Aether. So perhaps is the energy we see in the eyes of the zombies this chakra, connected with the power of the Aether's occupant.

  16. After stewing on the campaign for a week, I am happy to say that I was wrong in my presumptions about this campaign. I think the marketing did it a massive disservice in more ways than one. It is incredible what Raven was able to do with the campaign under the circumstances. Even if it was not meant to be a Black Ops game in early stages, I can see that the final product fits so well into the series. The central theme of "there are no heroes" is upheld in this game like I never imagined possible. The moment I knew I was wrong about the game came to me in this cutscene:

Congrats on 10 years too mate I’ll try really hard (as my time permits) to be as active as I can over the next few weeks/months. P.S.

  20. 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 load

  21. I am gonna be nominating good old @Tac first. With heavy emphasis on old, cause he just celebrated his 10 year anniversary on here. Throughout his years and roles on here there have been pretty much three constant things with this lovely brother. His love for this storyline, his love for this community and last but certainly not least his love for LDR's music. haha Oh and of course he has worked on some threads these past two months which turned out great, good old Anon has already linked them. @RichKiller is my second nomination he has created two very good threads, which

As always there are plenty of potential nominees that I could list, so know that I do not detract from others when I give my three when the active community both on the forums and on the Discord have been both plentiful and truly mind-blowing. First off, I'll nominate @RichKillerwho has suffered single-handedly through my variety of ciphers in what he (and I paraphrase here) considers a warmup. A warmup! His handling of these gave me a newfound respect for ciphers and a second newfound disappointment in the (mis)handling that went into some of the official ciphers (mainly Revelati

  23. @RichKiller I think you forgot to add the name 'Richkiller' in your list of nominees. This man is a major member that is active on both the Forums and the Discord. The fact he hasn't played past Der Eisendrache yet makes him having a lot of great out-of-the-box ideas about the story. Being a member that is active in others' posts, he also has made some grand works himself last two months, including the thread about Latin songs and about the String Theory. Secondly, I'd like to nominate mr. @Tac on his effords on documenting the entire Pawn Takes Pawn viral, and a bunch of other pos

  27. I can vouch for this. Me and @clueless ran a few games yesterday doing the launcher challenges and it quickly ( especially anything other than solo ) gets hectic and fast quick. Penthouse and Truck strats are easy set up and easily done and makes the game very simple but doesn’t really give you any accomplishment other than maybe getting to a high round. Personally I’m enjoying the game and the grind and I feel like it is balanced for different types of players which is good for everyone. Oh and to add to this, when the sprinters come after round 50, you better have your

  28. Greetings, CoDZ! I wanted to create a thread with a clear transcription of the story that we know so far. Upon reading through the the transcription sections of @RadZakpak and @clueless so far, though, I realized I knew nothing. Therefore, I thought it would be a better idea to make this a community thread akin to that of @MysteryMachineX back in the days. Part by part, bit by bit, we will work through all intel and story that we know thus far. I hope this thread will spark some critical discussion and that we together create this new story, based on the fragments of intel that we obtained in

  30. I really like this idea @clueless! It would make sense regarding a lot of points. Now, I'm not fully sure if the exact sequence of colours from most powerfull to least powerfull follows the sequence of the sun (e.g. we never saw white 115 and we did saw green and purple 115), but I think we can be sure blue 115 has the most energy considering, indeed, the Apothicon Sun is blue. So it'll be blue-->purple-->green-->red ? Do you think the eye colours of the zombies have something to do with the amount of power as well? Also reminds me of this: I'd say, regarding eye co

Regards to green 115 you have the turned zombies: Also, it's worth considering the purple 115 as seen in the DE camos: Similarly here you have the purple Apothicon influence of purple. The margwas also turn their head to purple in the last step where you kill the massive Apothicon in the sky. You also have the SoE pods,

  33. Here's to resurrecting this thread (and never getting a notification we went back to this -_-); I will make a comparison using celestial bodies in regards with potential of 115. The hottest stars in the universe burn a beautiful blue. At a slightly cooler temperature they burn as white light, and then descending into yellow coloration and then orange and finally red at the coolest point it can burn. As most people know, stars are functionally fusion reactors constantly colliding hydrogen atoms into helium. The brighter a star burns, the more hydrogen is being used in its process to

  36. A beautiful essay regarding the map's track, Cal, brains to you! Hope it will function as a guide in understanding our further findings in the map, and the new story in general. I don't have much to say on this, except on the First One thing. I am aware of the Aether's destruction, causing an end of the bipolar relation that the Aether - Dark Aether once had (Nilfheim and Muspelheim, if you want). I just can't see how destroying one side leads to the reformation of the First One. If merely the Dark Aether is what is left, doesn't that simply make the Shadowman the sole survivor? Because the Fi

  40. Hello all, Tac here. October 20, 2010 was my first day on this forum, right before Black Ops and quite near the beginning of my comprehensible life (26 now this month). Sometimes that doesn't seem very crazy to me and then other days it seems simply incredible, I've made as close of connections to people on this forum as my closest IRL friends (and fuck off if you sneer at that like it can't be true). Per usual I feel I've thought about this post a lot as it approached but as I've come to create it, I'm more at a loss for words than expected. Real quick on that point I want to shout out @Ehjoo

First off, we have @Tac, the man, the myth, the legend who has put a lot of effort into this gig, not only in the last two months, but also for the past 10 years. And he hasn't even stopped yet. Just check out our Youtube channel and I am sure, he will be supporting the forums and this community at least throughout Cold War.

For my nominations I'm going to have to narrow it down to these 3: @caljitsufor several well-thought out threads in the Asylum, with tons of research and love put into them. @Tac for his coverage of Pawn Takes Pawn and work behind the scenes to support the forum. @PINNAZ for his additional research into Pawn Takes Pawn and generally being the source-master he's known for being.
