Call of Duty Black Ops Rezurrection Map Pack: Zombies Moon Tips & Tricks

Updated on August 30, 2011

The Rezurrection Map Pack was released for Call of Duty Black Ops on August 23rd, 2011. It features five zombie maps, four of which are the classic zombie levels from Call of Duty World at War. Moon is the new map that is free for players who already own the collectors edition of Black ops, AKA, the hardened or prestige editions. If you only own the standard version, it will cost 1200 Microsoft points, and will most likely cost 15 dollars on the PC & PS3 versions when they release.

Black Ops Moon Zombie Level Tips & Tricks

Moon rivals the size of Call of the Dead, but I believe Moon is larger. There is a combination of open areas and close quarters areas. Part of Moon takes place outside on the moon base, while the other parts take place in the various rooms underground.

In my opinion, Moon is the most challenging zombie level ever. Shangri-La was a challenging zombie map, but it was mainly because there was no open areas to distance yourself from the attacking zombies.

While there are no special zombies on this map, besides the crawlers and astronaut zombie, this map will still prove challenging to many.

There are 3 excavators on the moon that will dig into various areas of the map. These will block your path and can potentially kill you if you are near them. There is an astronaut zombie that will continuously spawn even after killing him.

Black Ops Moon Tips

Starting Area (Area 51 Hangar)

  • The teleporter can not be used unless all players are standing on it. It can be used if other players die, but not when they are down. So be sure everyone stands on the teleporter to go to the Moon.
  • It is actually possible to buy juggernog or speed cola if you get enough points. No power is needed.
  • When returning to this area via the teleporter on the moon, gersch devices are great to throw in this area. This is because the gersch device sucks up the zombies into a black hole which can give you precious time to use the pack-a-punch to upgrade a weapon.

Astronaut Zombie Mini Boss

  • If the astronaut touches you, you will be teleported and lose all your perks. Avoid the astronaut, but is is possible to escape by holding back on the movement stick the moment the astronaut zombie grabs you. The astronaut zombie will also cause damage to you.
  • This zombie has a lot of health,however, if a player kills it, the zombie will explode killing nearby zombies within a certain radius. Use this as an advantage.

Stop the Excavator from digging

The excavator can be stopped by hacking the consoles located in the spawn room on the Moon. The hacking device can be found in the computer labs. You can only hack the consoles when the excavator is active.

Hacking takes time, so be careful if you do it when zombies are around. Have another player cover you if necessary. The excavators can block the two tunnels, blocking your paths to get to the surface of the moon, which will make it nearly impossible to survive against the zombies.

General Moon Level Tips for fighting the zombies and moving around the map

  • Zombies move slower in low gravity areas. It may be easier to kill them,but keep in mind that you are also affected.
  • Turn the power on so you can breath in airtight rooms -- you don't need oxygen in every room, so you can take your space helmet off (power room is in front of pyramid).
  • Use the hacking device on doors so they will be cheaper. The hacking device can also be used for other purposes such as giving another player points.
  • The teleporter can not be used constantly, so use it wisely. After you use it, when returning to the Moon, you will not be able to use it until the green lights come on.
  • Locate the mystery box because it has the best weapons such as the new wave gun wonder weapon. The mystery box has a few spawn locations and will move after using it a random amount of times. The mystery box can be hacked.

      I'll add you chedderboomuk.... I have got to cryogenic slumber party many times but still looking for the whole Easter Egg.

      Also a good tip I use a lot. If you have all 4 players stand at the hacker device you have 1 person jump when he lands everyone press square, and everyone can get the hacker. If not all get it just have 1 person that has it (the others will keep there's) put it back by getting a new mask, and keep trying at the hacker until everyone has it.

      The hacker an hack so many things, if you buy a perk, you can return it by hacking the corresponding perk machine with a full refund, to get the escavator to breach tunnel 6 , only go from the starting room to the moon taking tunnel six. Also to filthydub, another way to get back is simple, get the hack and run to the teleporter and when you come back to the moon you will be at the main room, if you have co op let the players wait in the teleporter and when they are all there make a run for it so you don't die. Also i don't have this confirmed but im sure escavators don't start til the teleporter has been used AFTER reaching the moon. I have also fount that if you get caught by the astronaut, you can use an explosive weapon to free yourself, i use the mustan and sally.

      It took me forever to find out way's to get on the other side of the Excavator and get the hacker device......I found out 2 way's 1:You can go through a black hole to get there 2:You can sacrifice a perk and let the astronaut grab you and teleport you over there P.S.If you brake windows in the room's you wont be able to breath with the hacker device!!
