Call Of Duty Black Ops Zombies - Best Weapons
Acquiring the best weapons in zombie mode for Call Of Duty Black Ops is the key to success. No matter how good a given player is, he or she can only do so much with weaker weapons. The two new maps called Kino Der Toten, and Five, are very large maps. Each of them have different strategies, but gaining the best weapons will aid you in your survival against the zombies. The magic box or mystery box gives you the best weapons in Black Ops Zombies. The mystery box can give you any weapon though (good or bad). This article will go through some of the best weapons you should try and get from the mystery box. Normally, when you get a very good weapon, you should never trade it for a weaker one. The only time you should trade it is if you run out of ammo completely in that weapon. Other than that, you need to keep the strongest weapon(s) as long as possible to defeat the zombies. Otherwise, the weaker weapons will not kill the zombies very well (especially in higher zombie rounds).
Best Weapons to use:
Black Ops Light Machine Guns:
HK21 - This weapon has to be one of the best weapons you can get for zombies. Why? It carries over 500 rounds of ammo total and carriers 125 rounds in a magazine. This is great for defeating zombies and making a lot of points because of all the bullets penetrating zombies. It is very powerful, has decent reload time, and carries a lot of ammo. When upgraded, the magazine carriers an additional 25 rounds and gets stronger. (150 total per mag)
Upgraded Name: H115 Oscillator
RPK - The RPK is similar to the HK21 in terms of power, but does not carry as much ammo. This weapon still takes out zombies quite well. When upgraded, it goes from 100 rounds to 125 in one clip.
Upgraded Name: R115 Resonator
(THE MAIN DOWNSIDE TO MACHINE GUNS IS THAT YOU RUN SLOWER)

Special Weapons: (Wonder Weapons)
Ray Gun - The ray gun can eliminate zombies very quickly. Shooting zombies in the legs with the ray gun often makes them crawlers. Once you get to the higher zombie rounds, the ray gun may get a bit weak against the zombies, so upgrading becomes necessary. This weapon has been around since World At War's first zombie map. It is great for taking out zombies quickly, but be careful because it can hurt you if your too close to a zombie or an obstruction when firing. The ray gun carries a lot of ammo, is powerful, and you can run at a normal speed with it (does not hinder mobility like machine guns). It's very important to get the PHD Flopper Perk so the Ray Gun's splash damage does not damage you.
Upgraded Name: Porter's X2 Ray Gun
Winters Fury - This weapon can only be found on the zombie map called "five". This weapon freezes multiple zombies and they can be easily killed while frozen. This is a new weapon introduced in this game. It is effective for freezing many zombies, but you can not make points when freezing zombies (unless they updated the game).
Thunder gun - The most powerful weapon in zombies? This weapon does not carry a lot of ammo, however, one shot can send a huge group of zombies in front of you flying! This is a very good weapon to use when your team mates need cover (such as reviving each other). Upgrading the thundergun will allow you to deal more damage with each shot and you also receive more ammo. Words can barely describe this weapon. It simply kills tons of zombies in front of you instantly by throwing them backwards violently. The reload is not too bad either --except it only has 2 shots per mag (4 shots upgraded). Eventually, zombies will not die right away from this weapon in the higher rounds, but it will still knock them out of your way -- which could save you!
Do not waste the thunder gun on zombies by themselves. Use it in huge groups of zombies or when team mates need help. Otherwise, you will run out of ammo very quickly.
Upgraded Name: Zeus Cannon
Do you think the Ray Gun is the best wonder weapon? (Overall)
Scavenger - This is a sniper rifle exclusive to the zombie level "call of the dead." It fires a bullet that will explode within a few seconds, killing all zombies in the area of the explosion. This weapon is great if zombies are surrounding you from all sides. Make sure to get the PHD Flopper perk so you do not damage yourself or potentially down yourself with the scavenger sniper rifle, though. This weapon can only be found from the mystery box.
Upgrading the scavenger by pack-a-punching it gives the weapon an infrared scope and variable zoom capability. It will also have a larger magazine size and deal double the damage to zombies.
