“Five” is the second base Zombies map in Call of Duty: Black Ops. It takes place in the top secret Pentagon building. This map is unlocked after beating the campaign. Alternatively, you can unlock the map by accessing the terminal at the main menu. Escape from your straps by pressing the triggers of your controller quickly, then interact with the computer. Enter the code “3ARC UNLOCK.”

Like most Zombies maps, you must turn on the power to use the Perk-A-Cola Machines. A Mystery Box is available, but does not have a set starting location.

There is a Pack-A-Punch Machine available in a hidden room. Turn the power on to use the four DEFCON buttons around the pentagon-shaped room (says Death-Con when near them). This will set all teleporters to the Pack-A-Punch room. Players will have access to the Pack-A-Punch Machine for about 30 seconds before it disappears behind a wall and the door to the pentagon-shaped room opens. You must leave the room, let the door lock behind you, then press all the DEFCON switches again in order to go back to the room and use the Pack-A-Punch Machine again.


There are no Hell Hounds in this level, instead there is the Pentagon Thief. The Pentagon Thief looks like a stereotypical scientist, like Dr. Emmett Brown from Back to the Future. If he touches you, he will steal the weapon you have in your hands. There’s an achievement/trophy awarded for killing the Pentagon Thief before he steals your loadout. The Pentagon Thief has a massive amount of health, but it is possible to kill him. Use claymores and light machine gun rounds to the head or upgraded weapons. If you can kill him after he stole any weapons, all players will get their weapons back along with a max ammo and a fire sale power up. If you bought a gun after your weapons was taken and everyone’s weapons were returned, you lose the weapon you purchased and regain the weapon you lost. If you can kill him before he steals everyone’s weapons, you will get a max ammo and a bonfire sale power up.
