As everyone is most probably already aware, there are quite a few 'mini-challenges' that people have invented.

Just copy the format below and edit the details to suit your challenge.

... I've seen loads of these posts around the internet, 'Create your own Zombies challenges' and all that but shouldn't we find a way to implement these challenges into gameplay and reward people for doing them?

Now I know that the only way it can be done properly would be to actually build an achievement/challenge system into the game, which we can't do, it's just a shame to see all these really cool ideas for some tricky challenges go to waste when there is no way to monitor half of them.

Basically, what I'm trying to say is, it's all well and good coming up with these ideas (which, for the record, are awesome and I really wish that 'Challenges' was a feature in Zombies) but when there is nothing to keep track of your progress and then therefore no reward, it takes away any motivation to actually go through with them.

I dunno, I think most people do challenges when they've played all the maps to death, done high rounds on all, waiting for the next map (or the next game in this case) and just need a way to keep the gameplay fresh. I dunno about everyone else but if I was doing these challenges in order to get an achievement it'd feel more like a task than a fun wacky challenge.

Yeah, I suppose you're right about a fun challenge becoming a chore when rewards are on the line, which is a shame considering a few 'challenge completed'/achievements would be an awesome addition to Zombies when it comes to bragging rights.

CoDz should come up with an official challenge page with all these cool ideas where users/players are rewarded by being put into a specific group or get some kind of cool badges for their sig upon completing a certain challenge, just for fun like!

So you would get brainz for being a good member, and 'challenge badges' for being a good player.

I think something like this could be quite cool, depending on who took it seriously of course!

For the next game, I'm hoping they do a Spec Ops type mode for zombies, where it's just challenges to complete on every map. They could sorta even work like Contracts, where there are Daily ones that change daily (obviously), or they change weekly.

Just had an idea that popped into my head! What if they also added the idea to let people create challenges, and than everyone else in the world can try it as well? You choose the map, a Round limit, Time limit, certain perks un/available, certain power-ups un/available, certain weapons un/available, etc. Than they could either be posted in a User Challenges section, or, Treyarch would go through them all and accept the ones that are good, and deny the ones that need a little more work/creativity.

Okay I have another one. Fairly simple. ;)

Challenge: Pack Addict

Objective: Pack-a-Punch every weapon in the map (including M1911, wall weapons, and box weapons)

Time limit: none

Round limit: none

Disallowed perks: none

Disallowed weapons: none

This challenge is difficult. I've come close, but I've never completed it. It's strongly advised to keep a running list of weapons you've Pack-a-Punched. The last time I tried this was a long time ago on Kino (died at 32, Pack-a-Punched 21 weapons), I might run it again sometime on Ascension (probably easier).

Challenge Name: Ring-around-the-Zombies

Number of Players:4

Required Map(s):Call of The Dead

Objective: Once you reach the lighthouse, all doors and blockades must be opened on the first floor. Then, you and your friends have to all survive in that very same room! (you may play regularly until people get the guns they prefer that are not banned below) There is a point system to go buy: a down costs you a negative point, a revive gains you a point, and leaving the room resets your points, or if you are in the negative you lose 1-5 points depending on how long you are absent. Players must keep track of each others' points to ensure exact scoring. Once everyone dies out, the person with the most points wins!

Time Limit:none

Round Limit:none

Randoms Only:preferable with friends or randoms who cooperate

Disallowed Perk(s):none

Disallowed Weapon(s):scavenger, PaPed crossbow, VR11. (M&S are encouraged with PhD Flop)

This minigame is very fun and you can expect many downs. Once you go down you still need to remain in the room! After rounds are over, then go and buy the perks you deem necessary, but prepare to lose them shortly after :D. If you are playing with a few skilled zombie trainers this challenge will be more entertaining and competitive.

Let me know what you guys think

The problem with the other challenges I've read, is that it's boring doing the same one thing the whole game. My challenge has lots of variety, and every level has unique strategies and challenges. Check it out:

Challenge Name: Universal Soldier

Number of Players: 1 (or more)

Required Map(s): Kino (or others)

Objective:

The general idea is as follows: on each level, you will only use one weapon to kill the zombies. You must choose a different weapon for each level, (each gun may only be used on one level each) and in general you use up the weaker weapons before you move onto the more powerful weapons. And when I say "weapon", I also include knives, grenades, claymores, the starter pistol, and monkey bombs.

The detailed rules are:

- You may not open a door or barrier until you have used up all guns currently available. Once that door is open, you must use all the guns in the new room before opening more.

- You may not turn on the power until all doors are open.

- You may not use the box until you have used all the default weapons and wall weapons on the map.

- You are not allowed to Pack a Punch anything until you are on the box guns.

- When you are allowed to use the box, you must take the first weapon that comes. (unless it is a repeat; make a list) If you run out of ammo, you may pack a punch it. If your Pack-a-punch gun runs out of ammo, you may use any wall guns to finish the round. You may Pack-a-punch the wall gun in this situation. But you must make a genuine attempt to use the box gun. (You can't just fire your china lake into the sky)

- You may not use traps, nor fry zombies in the teleporter, nor blast them with the quick-revive-mustang-and-sally.

- You ARE allowed to use the floating green power-ups (nuke, insta-kill, max ammo, double points, etc) You're not allowed to use power-ups that give you special weapons, (death machine, lightning bolt).

- Special rule for claymores: Unlike other wall weapons, it is not possible to reload your claymores in the middle of a round. Instead, the game gives you two free claymores each round, and also when you get max ammo. Therefore, you do not have to do the claymore round right away. (You can open more doors) You should store up claymores in preparation for your claymore level. Once you get the stage open, buy the claymores, and start placing them all facing the wall. You'll need to store up a bunch before you have enough to finish a level with them. Careful though; there is a software bug that causes the game to crash if you lay out too many claymores. (dunno how many, maybe 80)

- Special rule for monkey bombs: when you are on the monkey bomb level, you can also buy and use grenades off the wall. Don't use any guns on this level.

So, lots of rules, but they are kinda common-sense.

This challenge is alot harder than it sounds, because you can't open the map into a full circle or turn the power on until the end of round 12. Alot of planning is required so that you have a place to run around, but still have access to the wall for more ammo.

Tips:

- The first decision, is what order to use your first five weapons. You want to get rid of the weakest three before the zombies get too strong. I recommend: (1) pistol, (2) grenades, (3) knife, (4) olympia, (5) M14. You'll find it's really important to comletely board up the windows

- The dog round is an opportunity to get rid of a weaker gun.

- A good tactic for rounds 8-12, is to buy the gun, then walk to the far end of the map to a wide area, collecting zombies behind you. At the wide area, circle the zombies to create a tight herd, then walk back to the room you bought the gun from. When you're near the room, waste all the zombies, buy more ammo and repeat.

For multi-player, I suggest the folowing rules: when on the wall guns, everyone use the same gun. When using the box, everyone use the first gun that they get out of the box. When the box gun is out of ammo, wait for everyone to use up their ammo before Pack-a-punching, and before switching to wall guns to finish the level.

I've tried the challenge a few times on "Five". Level 5 is hard, because there's not alot of room to manouver. Levels 7-9 are really hard for the same reason, but having the elevator helps alot. After that it's pretty easy cause you can run the circle.

So, enjoy the challenge, and let me know how it goes with multiplayer or on other maps. Please post your suggestions for any map-specific rules you think are required.
