The Best Call of Duty Zombies Maps of All Time

With an all new Zombie mode in Black Ops III, it's time to look back and decide what the best Call of Duty Zombies map of all time is. Spanning three different games (sorry Nintendo DS we're not including you for this one) the Zombies franchise has a cult following and for good reason. There are insanely detailed and hard to execute easter eggs, stories that run so much deeper than you'd ever imagine, and honestly some of the funnest gameplay you can ever experience with your friends. Vote up your top CoD Zombies maps, whether it's World at War Zombie maps, Black Ops Zombie Maps, or Black Ops 2 Zombie maps. We're even including Black Ops 3 zombie maps as they come out, so you can vote those up if they're really good.

There's so much to take into consideration when deciding what the best map in Call of Duty zombies is. What perks did the map introduce? What was the hidden song? Was there ample space to train zombies? How fun was the map? These are the questinos you need to ask yourself before making the difficult decision of picking your favorites.

Updated 6/7/16- This list now includes every Black Ops 3 Zombies Map, including Shadows of Evil, Der Eisendrache, and Zetsubou No Shima.

    The final map in Black Ops 2, Origins is without question the hardest map to be released so far. You're almost always in close quarters, there are obstacles like mud to slow you down, and oh, yeah, there's a giant freaking robot trying to crush you with his feet. The easter egg on origins is the hardest to pull off, and when you finally do, you'll be scratching your head at what has just been presented to you.

    Mob of the Dead

    One of the many levels where you play as a guest cast, Mob of the Dead is definitely a fan favorite among Zombie freaks. This is the first map where you can actually "complete" the level, done by completing the "pop goes the weasel" easter egg. The map introduces a few new weapons, and new gameplay mechanic called "Afterlife Mode", and an awesome new perk called Electric Cherry that stuns enemies while you're reloading.

    Der Eisendrache

    Der Eisendrache is a visually stunning map with a lot of interesting things to marvel at, but if you're planning on completing this Easter Egg, you better know what you're doing. Upgrading the fire bow can be ridiculously hard, requiring precision no scope shots to hit a target while flying through the air.

    Der Riese

    The final map on Call of Duty: World at War, Der Riese is a truly spectacular Zombies map. The visuals are beautiful, and the teleportation aspect makes for some interesting strategies. You can also have fun camping the very back of the map, which is where most make their stand for long runs on the level. You could also crawl towards the perk machines and get a little bit of money from them, an exploit only found in this level.

    Kino der Toten

    To many, Kino der Toten is the perfect Zombies map. It's very close quarters, so if you're going to try and train zombies you might be in for a bad time. Kino der Toten introduced crawler zombies to the game, which became crucial in gearing up for the next round. It also introduced the Thundergun, which is one of the most fun wonder weapons in the series.

    Buried is without question the scariest map in Call of Duty Zombies. The haunted house you have to run through is terrifying, as you shoot and run from the ghost woman who won't stop respawning until you're out. If she touches you a perk will be lost, making her a major pain in the ass. There is also a randomly generated hedge maze you need to cross in order to make it to the pack-a-punch machine.

    Add the addition of the Wonder Weapon Paralyzer which literally lets you freaking fly, and you have one hell of a map. It's smaller than most CoD maps, but you can have so much fun with this one.
