What is Origins Zombies
Before I talk about the guide let me refer to what is origins zombies. Origins zombies is supposed to show the story of how it all began. The zombie maps we have all been playing for so long is supposed to be explained in this map. We are supposed to learn where it all began, and set up the zombies maps that began on World at War, Black Ops 1, and NOW Black Ops 2.
This map at the end of the Easter Egg shows a little girl who is Samantha playing with her friend before the zombie apocalypse begins. You learn the other side of where it began, and sets up all the other Easter Eggs we have completed. Overall i was not surprised with the final cut, but also did not enjoy it. I also believe Treyarch will continue to post new zombie modes on future Call Of Duty games, or release a new zombie game altogether simply based off of the fact that Zombies was a HUGE success and money maker for the company itself.
The Weapons to Survive High Rounds
Overall you are going to need certain weapons in order to survive high rounds. So let me talk about those first.
The first weapon that is going to be necessary to survive high rounds is a staff. You are going to need some sort of staff to help you in case you get trapped, or to help slow zombies when you are going to follow the strategy that I talk about. Personally I suggest the fire staff. While it may not be the best staff when talking about ultimate staffs, i survive to round 40 with just the fire staff, and a pack a punched MP40. These two weapons will help you out the best in the long term, and will make it very easy for you to survive. While you can use any staff you would like I personally suggest the fir staff, because even at high rounds it may not kill the zombies, but it will stun them so you can move by them without getting hit when creating a train.
The next weapon is the MP40.. While this is not the most powerful weapon, once pack a punched you can quickly and easily buy ammo off of the wall, and allow yourself to survive longer. The ammo will cost 4,500 and if done right you will make more money than that on a full clip. So I HIGHLY Suggest buying the MP40 off the wall in the beginning.
A third weapon with mule kick is up to you. Usually I will wait until I can get the free Scar-H Pack a punched as a reward, or whatever weapon they give you for free as my third. But also the Ray Gun Mark 2 is also very effective. Just keep in mind that most of these weapons you will need a max ammo to replenish which is why I ALWAYS suggest the MP40 first. BUT with mule kick you can get a third weapon which I suggest the reward item, Ray gun Mark 2, OR the MG08 or a weapon of your choosing. Either way, you are going to want this weapon to be a secondary ot the MP40 in case that runs low, or as a third weapon to assist you.
Strategy for surviving HIGH Rounds
The strategy I will suggest for surviving high rounds is as follows. I suggest you create a train, or a horde of zombies, and then run them in a circle. Once they are built up, you lay into them with one of your weapons, and you will slowly take out the zombies. In the first 30 rounds or so with any pack a punched weapon you will kill them fairly easily. As the rounds get higher, this will take significantly more effort, but is not impossible. I still suggest using the MP40 because you can easily buy ammunition off the wall at MANY locations through the map and many of which are right on the way that you would run your horde anyway. So I will talk about below the many locations and areas where you can run your train and survive for high rounds.
The first location and in my opinion for running a train is near jug or generator 4. As you can see in my video below this is where I run my train and survived to round 40 with no problem. You can easily go much higher at this location even with the boss zombies that come every few rounds. BUT for this location it will be essential to have a staff as when you get near the crazy place sometimes you will need to shoot the fire staff or similar at the ground in order to freeze those zombies so they don't hit you, or block your path. Either way this is a great place to run, and will allow you to survive. ANOTHER favorite part of this place, is IF you accidentally go down you can easily pick up jug in order to survive for the rest of the round and go get your other perks. Many of the other locations you can train, if you go down accidentally you are going to problem die within that round, but at least at generator 4 you still have a chance of getting jug and surviving until you can get the rest of your perks.
Another good location that you can run to and build your horde is by the excavation site. While this has a more narrow area to run, this is a perfect circle for you to build up a horde, and run them in a circle. I typically will use this location along with the Jug/Generator 6 area when I need to buy more MP40 bullets as this is easier than running into the footprint area behind Jug.
Then next good location to run your horde, and build a train is at generator 5. This location allows a big enough area with the footprints, and openness that you can run the zombies, and be near the MP40 to buy more ammo. I have ran this rea plenty of times when I am playing with a teammate who prefers to run the generator 4 / jug area.
Lastly the next BEST place to run is at generator 3. If done right, and you pack a punch the AK down below, you can survive at this location for high rounds as well. While the MP40 is not on the wall I would suggest pack a punching the AK if you are going to use this area. Keep in mind if you choose this area I would suggest staying in this area, otherwise you will run out of bullets and no be able to buy another AK off any walls. But the AK allows you to simply survive here for high rounds, and survive for a good amount of time.
So overall if you use these three locations you will be able to survive for high rounds without much trouble. These are great for you to survive and will help you in the long run. I personally use all these locations when I play with my friends, and we typically have no problem getting to round 40 at the minimum.
