Amazing-Yet-So-Dreadfully-Obvious Hiding Spot on Outskirts
This hiding spot works best while playing Search and Destroy or Sabotage with the player preferrably wearing a ghillie suit.
Near the northern bomb site by the wall directly across from the tunnel, there is a bush that is just large enough to camoflauge an entire person. If you step into this bush and crouch, you will be practically invisible to any would-be planters who would come into the vicinity. This works great as they'll plant thinking no one's there only to get jumped as soon as they do.

How to be invincible on nazi zombies-tip not cheat
First thing you have to do is buy the BAR rifle (the gun on the wall next to the metal bar wall thing, its kind of like a prison cell door) then you have to kill enough zombies to open the help door then go to your immediate left and there is a chest on the floor, this is random weapon, and keep trying until you get a ray gun which is, depending on where you hit, a 1-shot kill. You then go and get 1000 points to open upstairs by clearing the debris then once again you go immediate left and go over to the shape on the wall then turn around and crouch down. Here you can see the two places where the zombies come from, up the stairs and out of the window way in front of you. Hope this helps. I have used this strategy and it works well. By the way on early levels if you knife then to death you get more points than shooting them in the head.
Location of all Death Cards
1. Eight of Hearts - Thunder (Semper Fi)
- Located inside of a helmet next to a rifle sticking out of the floor. This is in a shack to right of the shack you are escaping from early in the game.

2. Four of Clubs - Hard Headed (Little Resistance)
- Outside of the final building to the right of the entrance

3. King of Hearts - Suicide King (Hard Hitting)
- On the lower level of the building, in a room on the player's way outside

4. Five of Diamonds - Cold Dead Hands (Vendetta)
- This is the first Russian death card. It's sticking out of a helmet behind a bar in the first building you're guided through

5. Joker - Sticks and Stones (Their Land, Their Blood)
- In one of the stalls in the barn next to some dead cows and a soldier

6. Queen of Hearts - Vampire (Burn 'em Out)
- In some shadows in the back of a bunker on the way after the first mortar

7. Nine of Diamonds - Flak Jacket (Relentless)
- Down the hallway after the two paths meet

8. Jack of Spades - Body Armor (Ring of Steel)
- After entering the asylum, head left to the outside quad area, it's near the left wall

9. Ace of Spades - Undead Soldier(Eviction)
- After killing everyone on the balcony, jump down a hole in the floor and search around

10. Ten of Clubs - Painkiller Cheat (Blowtorch and Corkscrew)
- On the left wall after the first bunker, next to a dead Japanese soldier

11. Three of Diamonds' - Berserker (Breaking Point)
- In a shack to the south after the four mortar pits

12. Six of Clubs - Paintball (Heart of Reich)
- In a subway entrance on the other side from where the player starts

13. Two of Spades - Victory (Downfall)
- The last one is through a door that some of the player's allies break down. the door is between the staircase and the theater
Nazi Zombie Help [4 Player] pt.1
Can't get past a wave on Nazi Zombies? Well, perhaps this will help.

First, buy yourself Carbine as soon as possible. You use that Carbine until around wave 8-9 and then run into the Help room. Have one person open the staircase that leads up top in the main room. Not the one in the Help room. Have everyone in your party / team go into the Help room and hold it off as much as possible. Continue attempting for extremely good weapons (Will be listed below) and hold it off. 2 men on the door leading to the main room and the other 2 watching the 3 other entrances. This technique has gotten myself to Wave 22 with bad teammates.
Nazi Zombie Help [4 Player] pt.2
Can't get past a wave on Nazi Zombies? Well, perhaps this will help.

Just like part 1, you buy yourself a Carbine. After that, try holding off until around wave 8-9. Then, head straight for the Help room. Begin attempting for good weapons as your not going to be in the Help room for long. Once everyone has good enough weapons, head upstairs using the stairway in the help room. Head over to the grenades area and have 2 people man the grenades. Meanwhile, 1 person holds the window to your right (Next to the unlockable stairs). The remaining person will either stand in a corner where the Zombies will go after him, or stand near the guy at the window to help him from getting attacked by Zombies. The Grenade people need to begin throwing grenades constantly.

This got myself and others to about wave 18. Although, with this strategy, I've seen people make it to wave 35.
Nazi Zombie Help [4 Player] pt.3
Can't get past a wave on Nazi Zombies? Well, perhaps this will help.

Just like part 1 and 2, grab a Carbine and stay in the main room until about wave 8-9. After that, go into the Help room and get all of the good guns or at least enough to hold off the waves. Once you have your weapons, head up the stairs using either of the stair cases and head over to where the sniper is. Go to that window back there and have 1 person man the window and have the other 3 hold the zombies coming. The person at the window must have at least 1 Zombie sitting there with him. This will ensure for you to run around and build up windows / Walls / and get supplies. Even lets people get go's at the Random Box if they haven't gotten them already.

This technique I have only gotten to 16 with because we had only 2 people playing out of the 4. If we had the 4, we would have had at least wave 27+.
Nazi Zombie Strategy
Okay, first off, using only the pistol can get you enough points the first two rounds to open the help door. After that in between rounds, open the random box to collect the two 100/500 weapons (one of them is the Browning M1919). Now only opening the second set of stairs, stay in the far corner where the other stairs and grenades are. Now you only have to focus on the upstairs door-way and the window to your right. The last zombie to come through into the building will be the slowest one. This gives you an opportunity to grab ammo or board up windows. Using this strategy I've been able to get as far as round 12 by my self, hopefully you can do the same or further.
Nazi Zombie Survival
The first thing you should do is first gather enough points so you can open the door labeled "Help" then go and buy the Trench gun (Shotgun) this works good for multiple zombies coming after you the bullet will even go through a zombie and hit another. The only bad part about the shotgun is long reload times. Next,use molotovs to burn the zombies if close then buy the rifle "Bar" and prepare for fast firing but each level zombies get faster so make sure you move around while reloading.

Good Hunting!
Ray gun on Little Resistance
When you get to the beach go right and stand in a puddle that is pretty deep for about 15 second, then do that again in the middle of the beach. Next you do that again on the left of the beach but this time don't get out till you see lions come out of the ground. They will be holding ray guns in their mouths, take one.
saved privat ryan
in the mission semper fi go on ahead of the group untill you are at a cabin wait for the group to catch up and you'll hear a battle cry
and see a flaming japaneese warrior shoot him with a rifle or at the beginning if you picked up a 'type 100' use that if the warrior lights private ryan on fire you have failed the acheivment if the warrior doesn't get to light him on fire ryan will pat his arms and you get the acheivment
Using Dogs to Get You More Dogs
After getting 7 kills to use the dogs. You will not get the Recon Plane, Artillery Strike, and Dogs again. However, if you save them you will be able to do it. Just wait until you die and press the button to use them. As long as you stay alive and manage to kill a few enemies by yourself, the dogs will count towards your kills for getting a new set of dogs.
Zombie Mode
Successfully complete Campaign mode to unlock Zombie mode, which is a four-player Co-op mode against endless waves of Nazi zombies.

Corporal to Sergeant in seconds!
At the end of the second mission, when Sgt. Sullivan is stabbed by the Banzai warrior, if you hover over Roebuck he is Sgt. Roebuck, whereas this is only confirmed after the mission.
Erasing Match Data
If you are in a match and you are about to lose or your kill to death ratio is not what you want, you can erase the data and it will not affect your stats. To do this, just hold down the Xbox Guide button, and choose the "shut down console" option. This will turn off your Xbox and erase the data. When you turn it back on you will see that your stats are unaffected.
Go under the castles map.
Okay, first go to the map castle and go near the bridge that has a pond under it. Now jump on the rail on the bridge and run and jump to this little black spot on the right and you will be under the map.
Nazi Zombie Survival
Starting at about wave 5 open the help door and use the random box to handle the attacks until wave 10 and open the upstairs. Then, have one player jump into the glitch while the other mans the window in the far back, and the rest help with the heavy crowd up front. The glitch is on the broken wall in front of the trench gun, with a piece of wood leaning against the wall. Get a running start and jump into that corner between the beam and the wall. Then lay down and turn towards the shotgun all the way around until facing the bar. You should feel the turn slow down once your view is at the dirt in front of the glitch to know its activated. I have done this multiple times and every time i have been to 28 before the zombies broke the glitch from behind.
Zombies can't hurt you glich
In Nazi Zombies, find the corner next to the window to the left of were you start(only works in 2 players). Have player 1 or 2 lay down by the crack of the wall and have the other person jump on him and lay down, the zombies can't get you.
zombies glitch
In the first room at th stairs go right up against the debris and turn around. Look in the corner and jump and crouch and if done correctly you should
Be floating.
