Increasing Performance
If your PC specs are slightly below the minimum requirements or you want to increase performance when playing Black Ops for PC, these command codes are a sure way to increase performance.

First look for your Black Ops config file. Do this by going to:
<!-- code 0 --><div class="codesnippet"><pre class="prettyprint linenums"><code>Computer > Local Disk > Program Files (x86 for 64-bit Windows) > Steam > steamapps > common > call of duty black ops > players > config.cfg</code></pre></div><!-- endcode 0 -->

Open the file with WordPad for a much clearer view since Notepad would jumble all the commands together. DO NOT CHANGE THE config_mp FILE!! As you can see you will tons of developer console commands (or console), you only need to focus on these certain ones.

seta r_dof_enable - Set this to "0", "1" enables the depth of field effect.

seta r_multiGpu - Set this to "0" if you do not have a duel Nvidia SLI graphics card or duel ATI CrossFire graphics card. Setting this to "1" will enable full use of multiple graphics card setup.

seta r_multithreaded_device - Set this to "1", this will enable full use of multicore processors (ie. Duel Core, Quad Core, etc). Setting this to "0" will disable the use of multicore processors or if you do not have a multicore processor.

seta cg_brass - Set this to "0", it will remove the shells that appear when firing certain weapons.

seta cg_blood - Set this to "0", it will disable the blood and gib effects.

seta cl_maxpackets - Set this to "100", it will slightly increase smoothness of gameplay.

seta snaps - Set this to "30", this will also slightly increase smoothness of gameplay.

Save then exit, before you start your game right click on the file, click Properties, and check the box that says "Read-Only". This will prevent Steam Cloud (or Black Ops) from resetting everything.
Ladder - Aim Time
Prior to climbing a ladder, press the melee button, and then begin to climb.
If timed correctly (for example the ladder on Seatown), the character will no longer need to bring out his gun and therefore upon reaching the top of the ladder, the gun will already be brought out ready to fire.

This can save time and may benefit in you getting a kill.

Break Free from Torture Chair

PC: Press the Space Bar repeatingly.

Xbox 360: Press Lt and Rt repeatingly.

PS3: Press L2 and R2 repeatingly.

There is also a secret computer that Mason is automatcally logged into which you can play Dead Ops Arcade on.
Secret Thunder Gun
Go to campaign mode and play on Mission: Numbers. Throw grenades at the Nova-6 Canisters and ALL of them have to explode. Turn around and there is a somewhat pointless area, a cassette player will be opened and press "X" (or "F" for PC), if the screen shakes, you have received a cassette. Once you get to the part where you jump to the other building (slow motion scene), when Dr. Clark shows you his weapon stock you will see another cassette player in the room. Press "X" (or "F") to insert the cassette, there will be strange noises coming from from it and then look at the wall. Eventually the screen will shake violently and the Thunder Gun will appear. It can only fire 12 times but it will reload after every checkpoint.
