Call of Duty: Black Ops Guide


Moon is the last zombie map for Call of Duty Black Ops. It takes place at Area 51 (Groom Lake) and allows you to teleport to a base on the moon. Actually, most of the map is on the base.

The start of the game has you at Hangar 18 in Groom Lake. There will be a Pack-A-Punch machine and either a Jugger-Nog or Speed Cola machine. The machines switch back and forth. This is a pre-round type thing. Zombies will come from the sides and up through the mud. They will die from one knife hit or a few rounds of your M1911. If you have the skill and know how, you can chain the zombies together and get enough points for Jugger-Nog. Hell Hounds can also be found in this area, but only this area. The Perk-A-Colas are right next to a teleporter pad. You need to get to the teleporter pad to make it to the moon base and start the rounds of zombies.

While on the moon, you must put on a special suit and helmet, or you will die. The suit is called the P.E.S. You can take off the helmet when you restore the power to certain areas of the base. Like usual, the power is off once you reach the base. There will be no gravity or air. Find the power room to restore gravity and air to select areas of the moon base. You can tell if there’s air by jumping. If it takes awhile to jump, there is no air or gravity.

Along with these enemies is a new challenge. After you turn on the power, three Excavators will try to breech the base. The Excavators are giant machines that saw into the base. If you get close to the Excavator, you will be downed in two quick hits with Jugger-Nog. It’s pretty tough to shut them all down. You must get a Hacker device( which is found on one of the desks between the Double Tap Rootbeer and the Deadshot Daiquiri) and hack one of the three terminals at the starting room near the Quick Revive. When you pick it up, you will leave your helmet behind. This prevents you from going outside of the Moon Base. You must either teleport back to Area 51 and back to the moon base, get caught by Astronaut Zombies, or use a Gersch Device and enter the black hole. You can also hack various other things around the map such as the Mystery Box, Doors, Barriers, and the gate around the Pack-A-Punch machine.

Another quick notable feature can be found around the base, most common in the dome. There are yellow square shaped pads that will launch you in the air if you stand on them. The ones in the dome will launch you to other yellow pads. The silver pads will cushion your fall. If you hit the floor without Jugger-Nog or PhD Flopper, you can get injured or downed just by falling from up high.


You may notice a new enemy right off the bat. Astronaut Zombies can be found on the base with names over their heads. Do not get close to them or they will hold on to you, attack you, steal your first Perk, and teleport you. They usually send you somewhere near the start of the moon base. If they do grab hold of you, you can still attack them. Once you kill them, they will blow up and blast you back with a shock wave. The shock wave may kill zombies near by. They have a lot more health than the average starter zombie, so don’t hold back.

nova 6 Crawlers return on Moon. This time, you do not need to turn on the power for them to come. Instead, they will appear after you open the door to Double Tap Rootbeer Some Creepy Crawlers have the ability to teleport across the room like a bullet. This makes it much difficult to keep your distance when they blow up. The gas they shoot off will not harm you if you are wearing your P.E.S.


You’ll notice a Jugger-Nog or Speed Cola machine at the start of the match. They will change back and forth each time you teleport back to Area 51.

Easter Eggs


Just like the past few maps, Moon has several Radios hidden throughout the map. Each radio has a recorded message on them. It doesn’t matter which one you play first, they will always play in chronological order. These messages are longer than the older ones, so make sure there aren’t any zombies nearby if you want to hear them. Actually, the crawlers will most likely reach you anyways. All you have to do is press the activate button on each radio. The activate button is X (Xbox 360), Square (PS3), or F (PC). The Radios are found at the following locations:

*Near some rocks in the dirt by the Olympia
*On a pipe above the room after the MPL. Either the power must be off or the Excavator must breach the room to reach it.
*Outside of a window next to Double Tap Rootbeer. Blow the window out with a grenade.
*Hanging from a crane near the Mule Kick, directly after the MP5K
*On a metal piece in the Dome, across from the PhD Flopper. You need to use the Jumping Pads.

Data Tapes

This Easter Egg is very similar to the Radios. There are six data tapes hidden around the zombie map “Moon.” They will be at random areas all over the map, so keep a sharp eye out. You can only get one after getting the other. Once you have one in your inventory, take it to the reel to reel in the laboratories between Double Tap Rootbeer and Deadshot Daiquiri. Each Data Tape has a recorded message from the Zombie Storyline.

Musical Easter Egg 1

Another musical easter egg. Find 3 hidden Teddy Bears with Helmets around the map to activate the Easter Egg. Click X (360), Square (PS3), or F (PC) on the Bears to activate them. The song is called “Coming Home” by Elena Siegman and Kevin Sherwood. The bears are at the following locations:

*Under the starting area at the Moon Base
*In the air lock between the M16 and Power Room
*In a broken wall near the Stamin-Up

Musical Easter Egg 2

This is a second Musical Easter Egg on the Zombie Map “Moon.” It’s not really a full song like the first one. It’s an electronic version of the song “Damned.” Press the activate button on the computer next to the MP5K to turn it on.

Musical Easter Egg 3

This is the third Musical Easter Egg on the map “Moon.” It’s not really a full song like the first one. It’s an electronic (8-Bit?) version of the song “Coming Home.” To activate it, press the activate button on the equipment near the Stamin-Up.

Musical Easter Egg 4

This is the fourth Musical Easter Egg on the zombie map “Moon.” All you have to do is press the activate button on some equipment across the room from the Double Tap Rootbeer. The activate button is X (Xbox 360), Square (PS3), or F (PC).

The song is an electronic (8-Bit?) Version of “Pareidolia.”

Cryogenic Slumber Party (Solo)

You can do this Achievement/Trophy solo, but you won’t be able to do Big Bang Theory. Big Bang Theory also requires Richtofen to have the Call of the Dead and Shangri-La Easter Eggs completed.

This is a simple guide on how to complete the Cryogenic Slumber Party Easter Egg on solo. It’s very simple. The only hard part is waiting for the Excavator to breach tunnel 6.
