Introduction:

 

Welcome to the Escalation Road map & guide. This is the 2nd Map pack for Call of duty - Black Ops made by Treyarch. All the achievements are based around the games zombie mode map Call Of The Dead. Call Of The Dead boasts to be the biggest and best zombie map to date with an experience unlike no other map. You also get play as a new set of star studded characters, Danny Trejo (Machette, Predators) Robert Englund (Freddy Krueger) Sarah Michelle Gellar (Buffy the vampire slayer, The Grudge) Michael Rooker (The Marine 2, The Walking Dead).

 

Lets Do This:

 

Ok so this is normally where playthrough one would go but seeing as zombies is round based there is really no way to judge how long or how many playthroughs it will take you. You could make it round 2 and die or round 10 and die, it all depends on how good you are the game and how lucky you get at the Random Box.

 

The only advice I can give is to find a good team of players (if your playing for fun it doesn't really matter) if your going for the achievements. Its really fustrating trying to go for achievements when your team cant make it past Wave 5. For a list of all the achievements see the guide below.

 

Guide:

 

Stand In - 35G

If playing in Solo you do not need to find the Vodka.

 

Stuntman - 20G

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1064/UPsgSWo=.jpg

In Call of the Dead, make a zombie explode using the V-R11.

 

The V-R11 is a new weapon which is obtained by using the Random Box which turns Zombie back into Humans and they run away. So first off obtain the weapon and then Upgrade it using the Pack A Punch machine, then shoot a Zombie with it 2-3 times to make it explode.

Shooting On Location - 20G

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1064/UPiepKs=.jpg

In Call of the Dead, kill 10 zombies with one Scavenger shot from over 100 feet away.

 

The Scavenger is a new Sniper Rifle which is again obtained through the random box. It shoots out exploding bullets which go off after about 3 seconds (Very similair to the CrossBow but 10x Stronger). So obtain the new weapon (Does not have to be upgraded) round up 10+ Zombies, put some distance between them and you and blow them up.

Qiuet On The Set - 30G

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1064/UPq-rR4=.jpg

In Call of the Dead, cut the lights on the Director.

 

This achievement requires you to kill Zombie George (You dont really kill him he just goes away for a few rounds) There is no set way you have to kill him it is all damaged based. Deal enough damage to him and he will go away. To make it easier on yourself take him out using an Upgraded Scavenger or V-R11. You will know when your getting close to killing him as the stage light he is carrying will start flashing orange and sparking.

Nice guide.

About 'Quiet On The Set', I've just been in a game, where one person had an upgraded V-R11 and shot George when he was in the water. He went away, but the achievement didn't unlock for anyone, not even the guy that shot him. So does that mean we need to kill him by shooting him with other stuff, or was we just unlucky?

People don't seem to get thw achievement for killing George if they use VR-11s and Scavengers. I did what the guy in the other thread did, Get to round 5 in the first area and just unload M14, took me about 20-30 minutes but a hell of a lot easier than hoping for luck in the box and actually getting enough points.

For the ensemble cast achievement instead of linking us to the other thread, i think you should post the information in here.

 

But good guide so far, and thanks!

 

Will do that :) I'll leave the link in for people wanting to add to the solution.

Personally myself I used the Scavenger (Not upgraded) Maybe you cant use upgraded weapons on him. Ill add to the guide thanks :)

'Shooting On Location' can be a right bitch. I got it on my own and on round 12. I kept gathering them all up in the lighthouse as the video provided in the guide demonstrates, but as they were all running towards me through the little cave where the guy in the video shoots to get the achievement, I apparently never killed 10 of them when I always had a good 15+ running in a pack.

 

Ah well, I've got it now. Going to do the exact same thing for V-R11 achievement now.

Playing in Co-Op will also net you the achievement Stand In.

 

This achievement revolves around you doing certain steps for the crew from the last map pack who are trapped in a vault under the LightHouse. The steps have yet to be comepleted but see this thread HERE on what the community have found so far. If you have any more information please comment on the thread. I will update as more information surfaces.

 

If playing in Solo you do not need to find the Vodka.

I like zombies, but why do they persist on having luck achievements? It just distracts you playing the game the way you want to play it. Whatever happened to skill based achievements like "reach round X" or "obtain X points in one life"....

I've heard that the golden rod is in or near the cave heading up to the lighthouse and you need the VR11 to get it..?? not sure about that but its worth exploring i guess, probably wont spawn there until they ask for it tho

You didn't kill him just made him submerge. I have yet to see anyone kill him on COOP.(Don't come with the BS of I did it w/o proof) I had a group of 4 people maxed out on perks and Special weapons and the douche would not die. Made it to Rd. 27 before we said fuck it and let ourselves die.

Myself and Breadd killed him in Coop, just the two of us. We both had PaP Ray Guns and unloaded on him at the start zone. Was around level 13 when we did it, had crawlers etc, we even went into round 14 due to the crawlers dying from our mass bullet's hitting George. Took nearly all 380~ bullets from us both.

Update: Its reported that using the V-R11 and Scavenger (Upgraded) Doesn't net you the achievement Quite On The Set . However the Scavenger (Not upgraded) will get you this.

 

I got the (Quite On The Set) with the scavenger Upgraded

I got it!! Follow the steps to make the green light appear, then use a PaP VR11 on a zombie at the base of the lighthouse and he will float to the top. You need the scavenger now (does not have to be PaP either).

 

While the human is floating up the light shoot him with the scavenger and his body will die but will still float up. I don't know if this matters but I went to top floor with zipline and shot him a little before he hit the top. When the body disappears the golden rod appears at the base of the lighthouse.

 

Take the rod to the tube just left of the door to send it to the guys. After some dialogue they fuse will short out and the say the need another one. Well instead of finding another one knife the fuse in the fuse box and then after a bit more dialogue the achievement unlocks!

 

Now just have to do it for co-op. I believe to get the rod is same as solo, need to make the green light appear in the lighthouse somehow. I think it has to do with the dials but that's just my guess.
