Best Strategy for Nazi Zombies

As mentioned, I am a bit of a gamer and one of the Games I play the most is Call Of Duty: Black Ops and I mostly play is the infamous Nazi Zombies.

I know most of you probably already play this and play it well. However me and my band mates from Crimson Reign http://www.crimsonreign.ca/ can play this map like no one else and our wave record is wave 64

I know you must be thinking "Wave 64! You're full of shit or damn amazing! How did you do it?" Well I'll tell you our fool-proof strategy we used (and we always use) that can get you to the farthest wave you've ever been to. This strategy is very technical for the first 7 waves and then after that it's a cake walk. but remember to conserve ammo and get points. Helpful ammo saving and point building hints are listed throughout.

Wave One:
Probably the easiest wave there is. Even your grandparents can beat this wave. Just let the Zombies break down the barriers and come right in. You get points for rebuilding the barriers but remember in the first few waves you can max those points out. And there's NO point in shooting this wave. Just knife the zombies and they'll go down with one knife blow. Keep the last Zombie alive and rebuild all the barriers and then kill that Zom-Bitch. Don't buy anything either.
**ADVANCED PLAYER TIP: When you knife you'll notice that your character will thrust the knife and then pause as the knife is in the zombie and then pull it out. Well if you aim your knife upwards you're character will do a clean swipe and you won't be delayed waiting for you character to pull the knife back out of the zombie. And as an added bonus you'll even get an occasional "Head shot" for a knife kill, which again is more points**

Wave Two:
Don't really let them in this time, They'll get in eventually but nothing to be really concerned about. I like to direct most of my attention to the left side of the room with the barriers right at the top and bottom of the stairs. Pay the second most attention to the barrier next to the fuse box, and you can pretty much ignore the barrier under the stairs. Once again, don't bother shooting. The Zombies will go down with 2 knife hits and as you knife hold down on the movement stick because as you knife you'll leap forward and by holding back you walk back and 90% of the time are out of the zombie's attack range by the time he reacts. Once again keep the last one alive to rebuild all the barriers and don't buy anything.

Wave Three:
Time to do some shooting. It's to hard to knife these Zombies to death so you're allowed to use your pistol now. You're going to take about 6-8 shoots and then knife them right after and this should take them down with one swipe of the blade. Keep the attention to the barriers the same as mentioned in wave two. When they eventualy bust in slowly gather them by grouping a majority of them at the bottom but leave an escape route so you can access the far staircase on the far side of the up stairs barrier. You can easily stand and the top of the stairs and unload 6-8 shoots into the zombies at head level because on the stairs all they're heads line up and bullets travel through zombies so this will help you get more points per shot
**ADVANCED PLAYER TIP: You also get MORE points by NOT aiming down your sites when you shoot. It's a little more tricky to do but it helps boost the points even more**
If you do get stuck in a rut remember you have grenades. But you shouldn't need them. And once again keep the last guy alive to rebuild the barriers. IGNORE RANDOM WEAPON BOX UNTIL I SAY OTHER WISE

Once you finish rebuilding the barriers and BEFORE you kill the last zombie go up stairs and buy the door way into the second room and buy the next door into the third room with the two stair cases. Then turn right and go down the stairs and buy the full auto gun on the wall at the bottom of the stair case. Now we're going to be in this room for a while so let the last zombie come to you and kill him or go kill him and run back.

Wave Four and Five:
Just stay at the bottom floor between the two stair cases, All the zombies from the first two rooms will run down the stairs closest to the gun you just bought. The two barriers down stairs are very easy to watch and eventually some zombies will come down the other stair case from the barrier upstairs, but until they start coming down the stairs this is of little concern. Try to kill the zombies behind the barriers first so they last as long as possible. the zombies coming down the stairs will line up BEAUTIFULLY and with this gun they're heads will come off with 1-2 shoots each so just hold down the trigger for a second and watch them fall like dominoes.

At the start of these waves you'll be watching the down stairs barriers mostly but keep an eye on the stairs between them. Eventually you'll have to keep an equal first priorty on both barriers and the stairs once the stairs get busy. Don't forget about the stairs behind you. If you fuck yourself over a but you can start heading up these stairs A LITTLE but go back down as soon as you can! and be sure to keep an eye on them for the occasional Zombie coming down. It wont be nearly as many as the other stairs but it's a piss off way to die.
And don't try to do circles around the tables in the middle of the room, you'll just get surrounded and that's the last thing you want seeing how the hard part is almost over.

This room is a little more tricky but still fairly easy if you master the killing them on the stairs trick and constantly checking around you for the stray zombie.Be sure to buy ammo if you need it but hopefully you'll get a couple "max ammo"s so you wont need to buy ammo but if you do need to buy it, no big deal. After wave four or five but BEFORE wave six trade your pistol for the shotgun up stairs in this room.

Wave Six:
The Dogs. Probably the EASIEST wave after wave one. Run to the middle of the stair case closest to the shotgun you just bought. This is you new home for this wave. Make sure you have your shotgun out and constantly switch from looking up the stairs to looking down the stairs. when you see a dog but before it get close enough to leap, tap the "look down sights" trigger and quickly fire. This will auto aim you to the dog and ALWAYS kill in one shot. You'll need to reload once half way through an a manual reload chosen at the proper time instead of HAVING to reload could very helpful.
See I told you this round was easy.

As soon as this round is over run as fast as you can to the next room and through that room and into the big room with the curtain. But DON'T OPEN THE CURTAIN!

Wave Seven, Eight (maybe Nine) :
Now you have access to claymores and a very powerful 3-burst gun that you might wanna trade your shotgun for. You don't have to but you can if you want. You'll want to place the claymores at the far end barrier to slow down those zombies from that side of the room as much as possible. Aside from that all your enemies will be coming from the open doorway side side of the room. All you have to do is run circles around those big walls in the middle slowly and let the mass hoard gather behind you. Try to avoid running through the middle if you have to and whatever you do DO NOT DOUBLE BACK! EVER!!!!
Once the hoard is gathered behind you just sprint hard down a length of the big wall in the middle of the room and turn around and just fire away at head level and watch your points jump, and of course buy more ammo if you have to. When you're at one end of the hall and the hoard is at the other end stay until they get to the gap in the middle and THEN run the other hall length. You don't want them coming through the middle gap or possibly have some of them double back.
Keep this up how ever many rounds you have to until you have at least 5000 points to spend.

Wave Nine or Ten
Ok you have 5000 points to spend so this next round you're going to collect the hoard as you have been. Once you have them following you, quickly open the curtain and run down the hall to the Juggernaut cola machine and buy Juggernaut and very quickly run back to the hall and keep running away. By waiting for a hoard you wont get surrounded when running loops around the whole map. After you get Juggernaut and are back in front of the hoard you'll have to keep going back into the first room and do a lap around the whole map. Make sure you don't get to far ahead of the hoard when you do a full lap around the whole map or else you'll risk the zombies doubling back on you. As your doing the lap of the full map be sure to buy the Quick Revive in the original starting room and the speed cola in the room with the double stairs. When you get back to the room with the big walls in the middle you can either finish the zombies there or do another full map lap so you can also get the teleport machine ready. But make sure you finish the round in the room with the big walls in the middle because this is where you'll be spend most of your time.

Wave Eleven till Death
The tricky part will be the start of the waves. because Zombies will be coming from all sides so just start doing laps around the big walls and dodge Zombies as much as you can until they're gathered in a hoard. Avoid using traps or turrets. This cam seem really tricky but the zombie dodging is what you'll need in order to finish each wave perfectly. After you have the hoard gathered go ahead and start killing these guys, You're basically gonna live in this room from now on until you have the full hoard and then you can do full laps around the whole map to get different weapons, unlock the other room to get double tap, get random weapon box, teleport or set up the teleporter. Just so you know, after wave 30 something guns, grenades and claymores don't kill anymore, you'll HAVE to use traps to kill zombies and the gun is entirely for getting points.

Have fun and let me know what wave you manage to get to by commenting or better yet over Twitter.

-If you see Max Ammo reload your current weapon first to TRULY get Max Ammo.
-From wave 1-5 "Insta-Kill" means it's time for a knifing/pistol spree
-Try to avoid getting bombs or "double points" between rounds, remember an item will flash and then super-flash before it's gone
-From wave 11-30 try to avoid killing zombies when doing a full map lap because if they drop a power up during the full lap it will be gone by the time you get back to that spot on your next lap.
-Avoid exploring new places until there is only 1 or 2 zombies left alive for that wave
-From wave 10 till Death only gather the zombie hoard in the room with the big walls in the middle of it
-Always be aware what is going on all around you
