Call of Duty: Black Ops

Call of Duty: Black Ops Achievements


In Call of the Dead, send the crew to Paradise in solo or co-op.  

This is the easter egg achievement for the Escalation DLC and it stacks with Ensemble Cast, but can also be done separately. If you do this by itself, it has significantly fewer steps than Ensemble Cast, though. The steps for doing this solo are shown in this video:

Here is part of it. 1st u need the power on once this is on go 2 the light house and down the stairs outside till the bottom where there is a big metal door. Press x nd it's here the orginal zombie charcters from WAW. They will b yapping on nd joking around. U got 2 listen till the end as they will tell you u need a fuse and u say sure. Once u have said that go back upstairs 2 the room above and on a table either 1 with looks like car batteries or the 1 opposite table there will b a fuze. Grab nd head back down 2 the door. Right side is the fuse box, fuse goes inside. Then few seconds later the door will light up (they start talking again) door is red. 4 red lines. Which means u have 2 do something 4 times. If u turn round u will see a box with red light on it. This is a generator and the

and there r 3 more round the map. U have 2 destroy them. U can either go by Semtex or use ure frags. If using frags cock it 4 a bit then let go so it's near it wen it blows. Ure no wen it blows as light goes out. Now 4 the other 3 loactions of the generators. Any order you want is fine as long as  you get them all. 
There is 1 and the back on he light house by the hut. Go in the hut nd look kit back window nd ure see it
Other 1 is the front end of ship as u go up turn left there a boat u need 2 open then go 2 from of ship look over and down the side and u will see it. Last 1 is wen you go between the ship as the big crack in the middle of it go 2 the left side and jump down nd take the right walkway and u will see it stright in front of you.

The next bit I have not tried as died b4 I could try. But I have heard you need the new exploding rifle gun ( rv 11, rx 11, can't rember) so you will b lucky 2 get it wen u can from the box. Once got it you go 2 the cave where u heard up 2 the light house and starting shooting rocks till some melt away. Then you will find the rods. Like said I've only read this part so dnt no if true. So let me no if i worked! But the rest of it worked for me. So I hope this help you out a bit.

You need to use a Pack-a-Punched Ray Gun or V-R11 (the gun that turns zombies human) to shoot through the wall in the cave to get to the gold rod.

I'm sure the Scavenger (sniper rifle) would work as well, don't know if it needs to be Pack-a-Punched or not...

I can't seem to get this one or any other aside from the Quiet on the Set ach. which I did by myself in a ridiculous 3 1/2 hour session of meleeing Romero and leading him to water routine(the vid is in the Quiet on the set section) you probbly won't believe your eyes when u see my vid LOL, anyway when solo I hit restart level in the pause menu until a game begins with the weapon box is in the room below the power switch. That way u don't have to go in 2 different directions for them, they're basically "on the way"

4 solo u do all the steps find fuse 1st then blow up all generators ( see above 4 help) then once you do this go back 2 the door. THIS IS WHERE IT'S DIFFERENT!! They will speak in riddles again and after they finish and u finish talking listen. U will hear a beeping go out side and ure see a Light flashing in the sky. This is morse code and it involes the controls of the ship. So go over there now. Right the morse code translate. Left leaver down once(lands on slow). 2nd leaver nothing. 3rd leaver 3x(lands on full) then turn wheel right twice. So the brown handle is down at 5 on a clock. Then you go outside light has stoped flashing and u look below it in the water there b a sub. He then will shine light on lighthouse. This will go all the way 2 bottom. Now u need ure upgrade rv11 and shoo

step 1: turn the power on
step 2: turn the music on (avanged sevenfold)
step 3: go under PHD flopper en knife the wall a few times
step 4: get the fuse wich is lying up the stairs on one of the tables
step 5: go downstairs and put the fuse near the door and listen to the story
step 6: you need to destroy 4 generators:
1. in the same room (under PHD flopper)
2. at the stamina up left room look through the window an you'll see it
3. when you walk on the ship go directly to the left and look left over the sea
4. get to the boat and go to the other side of the boat jump of the rail walk a few steps through and you'll see it on your left
step 7: go back and knife the door again
step 8: richtoffen tells you to find the golden ro

Comment #35 by Don insane Xd
Wednesday, May 11, 2011 @ 08:46:55 AM

step 8: richtoffen tells you to find the golden rod so you will go to the power an take the handle to left 1 time down and the handle to the right 3 times down than you wil go to the steering wheel and go 2 times to the right
step 9: when you did this there will come a green light and shine to the lighthouse
step 10: get the VR-11 and shoot a zombie all the way down the lighthouse he will step in the green on that moment you will need to kill him so he will sort of ly dead while he is going to above.
step 11: the golden rod will be falling down the lighthouse and you will grab it and take it to the door put it into the left thing of the door and you made it.

Friday, June 03, 2011 @ 11:01:45 PM

simple when you come to think of it, if you have a good memory then you can do it. I did it pretty much first time after finding out about the generators, the vodka, the codes (and actually nkowing what they were), the fog horns, the radios, the morse code and then finnaly aquiring the golden rod to complete the acheivement. sounds easy hehe. surprisingly it's very easy and if anybody wants to do it with me to get the acheivement then add me as a friend, GT: COD IS FUBAR123 i can also help people with a few difficult acheivements, just look at my profile and see what games we both have and if you see i have an acheivement you want but don't have and i do then messgae me ill help you get it.

This one was easyier on solo but you need to be lucky on the box, i found the circling tactic the best plus lots of crawlers if the box is too far just keep restarting till it moves, the worst bit is the dials have the stratagey written down next to you our you'll end up pull your hair out.

Heres How You do the solo easter egg read the top comments they are good until you need the golden rod you need to go to the ship and turn the levers and wheel to a certain position turn the brown wheel so it is in the 5 ocklock position then you will go to the levers pull the left lever once then pull the right lever three times the middle lever cannot be moved and then a green light will apear and will go to the top of the lighthouse now you need to shoot a zombie with the vr11 near the bottom of the stairs that will make him run into the light kill with Ray Gun Scavenger dolls somthing explosive he will float up and the rod will float down then put it in wait for the fuse to break and knife it and BAM!!

It is impossible to do this in solo mode. When the vodka bottle is required, ONE person must knife it and ONE person must catch it. There needs to be a minimum of 2 people.

Comment #73 by Chiii
Wednesday, July 11, 2012 @ 06:46:11 AM

I know this is a month late, but @#73 - you don't need to get the Vodka bottle in Solo, there are different ways and the Vodka bottle is only in CO-OP...

BUT you can get the Vodka bottle in CO-OP by yourself when it spawns at the lighthouse, just run and jump off the stairs and knife it(will take a couple of tries) and you will land pretty much under it... So you can do 5 steps of the CO-OP achevo alone, but the rest needs people obviously.
