Black Ops Map Pack 1, First Strike, contains 5 incredibly diverse maps spanning the globe; featuring 4 multiplayer maps and a new Zombie experience.
“Berlin Wall” enlists players across both sides of Cold War Berlin; “Stadium” delivers fast-paced, close-quarters combat within the backdrop of a sports complex; “Discovery” features an abandoned German outpost set along the coast of Antarctica; “Kowloon” pits players onto the tiered levels of high-rises and rooftops of Kowloon City, Hong Kong. And for Zombie fans the world over, Call of Duty: Black Ops First Strike also features an all new Zombie experience. The new level, “Ascension,” pits players against hoards of vicious, perk-stealing zombie monkeys, flesh-eating Soviet Zombies and more in a trap-filled, Cold War era cosmodrome.
Map 1 – Berlin Wall
Berlin Wall is a fairly large map, set around Check-Point Charlie. It features a “no man’s land” between the walls, with auto-turrets watching over it. This area is colored in red on the player’s radar. It features the East and West sides of the wall as spawns. This map has many buildings and entertains people to “camp”. Domination is very intense on this map as the flag ‘B’ is in the middle. A Willy Pete will cover the player from the auto turrets.
Map 2 – Discovery
Discovery takes place in an old German base in the Antarctic, presumably based around “Project Nova”. It features four destroyable ice structures that bridge the gap between the two sides. These ice bridges can be destroyed with a claymore or fourteen shots from a pistol. Notice that it cannot be destroyed with kill streaks such as Napalm Strike, Rolling Thunder, or Mortar Team.
Map 3 – Kowloon
Kowloon is based around the campaign mission “Numbers,” and has two ziplines for rapid movement, similar to the zipline found in the first campaign level, “Operation 40.” It is set on rooftops and has perfect sniping points.
Map 4 – Stadium
Stadium is a map based in New York City around an empty hockey stadium named “Chance Stadium”. Because the focus is on the stadium, the player can not enter the hockey arena.
Map 5 – Ascension
The new Zombies map features the original characters, whose appearances have changed. e.g. Dr Richtofen is now in a spacesuit rather than his original costume of the Wehrmacht uniform. It has new weapons, perks, and Space Monkeys that steal players’ perks by breaking the corresponding machines. The new perks of Ascension are PhD Flopper and Stamin-Up. The map introduces Lunar Landers (which replace the teleporters). New weapons are available such as the Sickle (which replaces the Bowie Knife), the Gersch Device, and the Matryoshka Dolls (which both replace the Monkey Bomb).
