Call of Duty: Black Ops

Call of Duty: Black Ops Achievements

They are going THROUGH!

In Ascension, kill at least 5 zombies with 1 Gersh Device.  

This achievement is very luck-dependent. Just use your points to keep playing the mystery box until you get a Gersch Device. Then wait until there are five or more zombies fairly close together and throw a Device in front of them. It should drag all of them in and you should get the achievement.

Purely depends on luck of the box, easy as there is always more than 5 zombies
chasing you

8 hours of playing, no device. No doll grenades and no original monkeys.

this is very easy if you have the gersh device, just throw it and it is %100 guarentted 5 of them will get sucked in, i got it earlier

I got the Gersh Device on my first box purchase up at the power switch, planted it, and before I could drop it, I died and yet I got the achievement after the score screen.

This one is VERY easy all there is to this achievement is just being lucky enough to getting this out of the random box.

After getting this out of the Mystery box, use the LB to use it (replaces the flash bangs). pretty easy to suck in 5 zombies since it last about 5 seconds. Use it in a later level and you're in luck

@8. I spent three hours playing with friends. We got all the other achievements. All of my friends got the Gersh, but I didn't. I decided to play with 3 randoms for an hour... they all got the gersh achievement, I didn't. It takes luck. Apparently, I don't have any.

Comment #17 by KryptCeeper969
Thursday, February 03, 2011 @ 03:22:20 AM

Another super easy one...but it is based on luck...just hit the box until you get these. it looks like a round box. then whenever there is 5+ zombies throw it and enjoy the (humorous) achievement

Comment #18 by Johnny Reklaw
Thursday, February 03, 2011 @ 09:11:54 AM

I got all the DLC achievements in one game....this was easy, though luck was involved.

All 4 of us were trying for these, and myself and one other guy got the Gersch devices very early from the box (he got his on his first shot). Like said above...throw it and you are likely 99.999999999999% of the time to get the achievement. It takes about 2 seconds to prime (like monkeys). If you aren't getting it, just keep hitting the box. In another game I wasted 20K with no Gersch, but the very next round got it on the first try. Eventually, everyone can get them with time.

I'm willing to help anyone having issues with any of these...but its best to get 4 players with mics as communication is key to zombies and somewhat to these achievements

Been playing this all day, about 7 hours straight, and I have seen the device once, and I didn't get it, it was someone I was playing with. So frustrating that Treyarch makes these achievements that you need to either get lucky with, or get other people to open doors and stuff for you. Achievements should be based on player's having the skill to do something.

@8 and 17 if you guys need help with this achievement i can help. ill let you guys get enough for the box everytime and ill just buy doors, idk none of my friends ike zombies :(, so itll be fun for me :D send me a friend request at kRiSpY J33, ill be on form 4pm thru 11pm everyday after school

Comment #21 by BigSky900
Tuesday, February 08, 2011 @ 11:30:20 AM

Get lucky at the box is all it takes for this achievement.
Then afterwards you throw one at a group of zombies and after a flash of purple lights and other pretty colors you get the achievement

Comment #22 by CookSkiBullet94
Friday, February 18, 2011 @ 09:38:25 PM

This is so easy, just run to the top of the stairs near the outside lander, and at around level 5 or higher, watch your back tho there is a window there, just take quick looks.

I got this on one of my first tries but traded it away before I knew what it was...I paid for that mistake with about 50 box attempts before I got it again. Ouch.

Comment #36 by rooshbaboosh
Monday, May 16, 2011 @ 05:56:34 PM

The hard part is getting the devices from the box, because of course it's pure luck. Once you do though it couldn't be easier, especially once you're in the double figure rounds and you've got loads running at you.

Comment #37 by Kyle Isaac
Friday, May 20, 2011 @ 03:58:37 PM

I have nothing done on zombies, chievo wise. I'm okay at the actual game, I guess, but I'd also like to find three skilled, or not, guys to run zombies with, making the chievos the priority. After that, I'm down for playin' around lol

Tuesday, August 23, 2011 @ 02:36:23 PM

Same as #45 and #46, I've clearly got more than 5 to go in the device at least 5 different times and still no cheevo.

Comment #57 by Habs14
Wednesday, August 31, 2011 @ 12:31:16 AM

This is horseshit. All the times Ive played on acesion i could never ever get the gersh device. The one time I do get it I get it TWICE in the same playthrough and through 8 of them and didn't get the achievement!! Treyarch better fix this cause if this is the only achievement that glitched then thats BS.

For everyone who has been having a problem with this achievement not working,
i believe they have finally fixed it so this achievement works again.

I myself had the problem since i brought my new xbox about a month ago
and i just couldn't get it and i've read loads of posts about it so im sure everyone
who wanted it have pretty much given up.

But i do think it's fixed since i was able to get it earlier today :)

I got really lucky when i did this achievement. I got raygun and thunder gun after about 8 box tries which enabled me to fuck shit up for extra money aswell as protect myself, then i got the gersh device on my 12th box and used it by the second lunar lander on round 13. Also, i did it on solo :D

Comment #91 by L4D Pills
Wednesday, July 31, 2013 @ 12:04:00 AM

@86 no, the gersh device isnt the doll thing, its like a pipebomb from l4d met and fucked a blackhole from outerspace and they had a baby, it sucks up any nearby zombies and sends them somewhere else, and that was a reference from pineapple express :D

Comment #92 by Chuchox
Sunday, December 29, 2013 @ 12:19:24 AM

I could not unlock this achievement, so I read in the Forum, use the TU9 to geit, so i give a shot and in the wave 7 found the gersh, I use it in a group of zombies and finally got the achievement. (Before I used the TU11 and did not work).
