Black Ops Zombies FIVE Pentagon Panic Room Strategy
The "FIVE" zombie map for Call Of Duty Black Ops is a very large map. This map is best played with 3-4 people, however, its anyone's choice. The strategy for this zombie map will require 3-4 players, and 4 is the suggested number. This map has three levels within it. The office at the top, the defcon computer room, and the labs at the bottom. Where your going to defend requires the power to be turned on. Once the power is turned on the defcon switches need to be activated in order to go to the panic room. All the teleporters will send you to the panic room with a pack a punch to upgrade weapons when defcon 5 is on. This room will be safe temporarily, but eventually a hidden door opens, and allows zombies to come in the front. This is a prime area to defend given you position yourself correctly.
Rounds 1-5 Approximately
When you first spawn in the office, defend the windows with your team mates for a few rounds. If possible, do not buy any weapons off the wall. Use your pistol and knife the zombies to make money without spending money from buying weapons. There are a few walls that break, however sometimes one of them may not open. I believe this is random. These are on the side. A few players will have to run back and fourth to defend these. Eventually, when round 5 or 6 comes, open the doors to the hallway. Grab a sub machine gun off the wall. This weapon is not that great, however, its much better than the m14 or the double barrels shotgun. Go to the elevator at the end. (barricade needs to be opened first)
Elevator and computer defcon room
Everyone should now be in the elevator. This can be a decent place to defend & kill zombies, except your weapons will not defend you well. Use the elevator with everyone in it. The elevator takes you to the defcon room. Do not open the barricade at the stairs yet. Zombies will come up it if you do that. This room has 4 barricades at the top. A perfect place to defend because you have maximum of 4 players! There are two weapons at the top level balconies. An mp5 on the right from the elevator, and another sub machine gun on the far side of the balcony.

Defending Computer Defcon Room
This area is great to defend for a couple of rounds. You can not stay here very long though. Everyone can defend a window. There are 2 on the left side of the balcony, and 2 on the right portion of the room. The mp5 is great for taking out zombies and making money. Basically, you want to make enough so you can open the barricade and proceed down to the big elevator and go down to the labs.(where the power is) Try to save as much ammo as you can, so you do not waste buying ammo off the wall. Before you decide to go down with your team mates,make a zombie a crawler.This allows you to go down the elevator and turn on the power with time.
To The Labs, Turning On Power&Defcon
Open the barricades and go down to the large elevator at the bottom. Proceed down, and go to the room with a number 3 on it. Turn the power on. At this point, you can try and find the magic box if you want. Go back up to the computer defcon room. Turn on all the defcon switches in the room. Once you reach defcon 5, all teleporters will send you to panic room.
***Panic Room Camping Spot***
This place is amazing to defend if done right. You can upgrade your weapons at the pack a punch machine. This will cost 5000 points. In a few moments of arrival, a hidden door will open. Zombies will come in, and they also come through the two barricades in this room. The teleporter in the back can be used in the back for last resort escape.
Two people need to defend the windows.(Or at least one does) The remaining players need to defend the front entrance. Juggernaut can be purchased here.(increased health) The front entrance is where most of the zombies will be coming from. The players with the most powerful guns need to defend the front entrance. Zombies will continue to pour in from the defcon room, so the players guarding the front are important.The players in the back need to make sure the zombies do not attack the players in the front. This room is very good to defend, however, if your getting over run, use the teleporter in the back. The players defending windows can make crawlers. The players in the front can also try and create crawlers with grenades.(will be harder though)
(It is vital to save crawlers during this time if you wish to use the magic box in the labs.) Then you can come back to this room, and upgrade weapons and etc.
