Black Ops Kino Der Toten Zombies - Camping spot near Theater

Updated on January 27, 2011

There are actually quite a few locations to camp/defend on the Call Of Duty Blacks zombie map, Kino Der Toten. It may be a good idea to try many for experimentation. Some locations on this zombie map may work better for you. It also changes the experience a bit in the game. One of the locations that can be good for camping is up the stairs past the alley way. There are two windows up here where zombies come from, stairs, and a door that you do not have to open. This will hub will be step-by-step guide defending at this location. This map Kino Der Toten, does not really have a name for every room. The map below may be a good reference guide. Also, playing the map more will get you familiar with the locations.

Lobby Room Spawn Area

As always, you always start within the lobby room within this map. Kino Der Toten is really just one big circle with a theater in the middle. Do not open the right double doors at the top! For this strategy, you need to open the bottom left double doors. Defend the barriers from nazi zombies for about 4 or 5 rounds. Just be careful if dogs come at round 5. If dogs do come at round 5, grab a double barrel shotgun off the wall. The m14 may not be as good. Every player should stick together or the dogs may kill you! (Especially since this is the beginning)

Opening double doors, bottom left

Once every player is ready and its about round 5 or so, open the double doors on the left. The player with the most points "should" open the doors with the most money. Now, the next room has two barricades in it, and a door to open at the end. Your team could defend here for a round or so, however, it may be difficult not to get over run by zombies. This is mainly due to the fact that the weapon in this room is not that great. The sub machine gun only holds about 20 rounds in a clip.

Going through alley way

You need to open the door in the back to the alley way. Go through the alley way until you see a gate. Behind this gate is a staircase. Open the gate and proceed up stairs. This is the camping spot. This room does not have a name, but has two barricades in it, and a door that you DO NOT WANT TO OPEN!

Kino Der Toten Camping Spot - Defending stairs and barricades

Now, you may be thinking, "how can I get to the theater if I never open the door in this room"? You can just go back the way you came, and open the doors on the other side. Saving a crawler is a must. Use grenades to make zombies a crawler at the end of the rounds.This room can be defended relatively easy IF people defend there positions. One player needs to guard the window overlooking the alley. The second player needs to defend the window through a small corridor. The remaining player(s) need to defend the staircase from which you came from. Personally, I suggest two people at the staircase. So if you only had three players it may be more difficult. The zombies will primarily come from the alley way, but the other players need to defend the windows to prevent them from coming in the room and surrounding everyone.


1) Buying an AK off the wall, in the alley, will help you defend this location better. (Most other guns are not as good such as the double barrel shotgun, m14,etc at this point)

2) If your lucky, the magic box will spawn in one of the areas, or in this very room. This makes defending this area easier. (especially if you get good weapons) However, this is random, and the box may not be in any of the areas you came through.

3) You need to make crawlers. This is one of the most important things to do on nearly every nazi zombie map. This is even more important if the magic box weapon box did not spawn in any of these area. Save a crawler at the end of a round, and go on the other side of the map to turn on power, buy perks, upgrade weapons, and more...

***Just remember, DO NOT OPEN THE BACK DOOR IN THIS CAMPING SPOT or you will not be able to defend it...***

      I used it and thought it was pretty good. But if a zombie gets through one of the barricades then your screwed.

      I have made it to round 54. During early round, I focus on getting points, mp40, the power on, the Bowie Knife, and Jugger-Nog.

      After round 6, it lapping and trapping. I try to get the Zeus Cannon because it helps me lap and trap more aggressively.

      The biggest challenges, after round 50, are boredom and hubris. I combat this by running each round with a random weapon.

      Anon... Only good strategy I've heard on this entire page...

      I got to 29 with 2 ppl however just running and gunning doing laps through the lobby upstarirs through manikin then theatre and repeated. Always have an mp40 and just keep buying ammo off wall every lap. Thuis is the only other way that works. You need to do this with sum 1 on the same page with u who knows how to time it so u don't get swarmed from all sides.

      go from upstairs to da theater get at least 4 pack punches (must have a pack punched ballistic with bowie. the punced ballistic knife gives u shot that can instantly heal a downed teamate). then from the stage go to the door opposite of da dress manikin thing room then go to the alley from where he said to go on the map camp in the corner with one barrier. 1 guy with a bowie gets the barrier 2 people block the zombies from him and 1 guy on the short stairs with a lmg, thunder gun, upgraded grenade launcher/rockets or sally and mustang, or the upgraded explosive cross bow. it cant fail if u have a thunder gun, three monkey bomb carriers, the balistic knife, and ray gun pack a punched. dog round is the death round so save money and make crawler so u can get perks every round. p.s. this will get u to round 37 at most then its way to hard

      a good idea when you turn on the power is to buy the bowie knife of the the wall in the theater, AFTER you buy the juggernog ( the knife is right beside it on the wall). it replaces your normal knife and is a one hit kill at round 12. good run-gun strategy is to get the ballistic knife and buy the bowie kinfe as it will then be in your left hand (warning: this means you have one less shot with the balistic knife) and run in a circle from lobby to theater knifeing everyone in front of you. i got enough to upgrade the Balistic knife with 2 rounds of this

      Well, this is just one scenario. I have done what you have said before as well. I find a lot of ways work well depending on who you play with, and where the box spawns.

      That's bad scenerio. Best way is after level 4 open the bottom doors eahc player open 1. There 4 doors to theater. Once in the theater buy M16. One person defend the window in the back and 3 people sit in where the box will appear and shot at the door + front window. You will be able to hold that until lvl 12-16 easily. Then you leave a crawler and open the theater. Find the box and upgrade weapons and make sure u get perks (juggernaught)... Now u can go back to main lobby and open the first upstairs door. Defend the room and I'd its too much turn on the electricity beams which will kill them.

      I do not use contractions all the time. When I write in college, I am not allowed.

      Yeah, if I could make videos myself I would have one. Its at the top left on that map picture.

      This spot works pretty well, if everyone does there part. I mean, its also going to depend if the magic box is in the alley or in the camping spot itself.

      Its just another scenario that has potential

      Thanks for the comment

      Hmm.. Not completely sure about this one spot. But I'll try next time and I'll see what happens. An idea would be to provide a video or a picture of the spot, since it took my some time to find the spot you were talking about. Other than that great hub.
