Kicked off the TranZit Bus
If you want a good laugh, open fire on the TranZit bus driver, and he'll eventually get tired of you pumping him full of lead and kick you off the bus with a hilarious quote. Hear it for yourself, but make sure you're prepared to walk the rest of the way to your destination first.
Atari in Nuketown 2025
If you can manage to blast off all of the mannequins heads in under 60 seconds, you can go to Nuketown TC and press X to begin playing Atari.
Secret Teddy Bear Song
Find all three Teddy Bears in Nuketown 2025 and press X on each of them to unlock a secret song. The bears can be found in the yellow house, in the crashed bus, and in the backyard across from the yellow house.
In Mission 2: Celerium, move along the left wall at the start of the mission to find a hidden cave. Inside you'll find Thor's Hammer embedded in a rock. You can see it better by using flashbangs and your thermal scope.
Nacht der Undertoten
Go to the farm on TranZit and get off at the third stop. Make your way across the large cornfield and you'll reach Nacht der Undertoten from CoD: World at War.
Shoot Some Hoops
There is a basketball court in one corner of the Raid multiplayer map, with basketballs scattered around it. You can shoot or hit the balls with melee attacks to launch them in the direction you're facing. Line yourself up between the balls and baskets to try and sink some shots in style.
If you killed Menendez, you'll be treated to a great ending concert scene featuring Black Ops characters getting down to some Avenged Sevenfold.
Here's a neat trick to make yourself untouchable in the TranZit. Buy the door and place it between the existing grey door and the vase with the plant. Now activate the door with a Turbine and the door will open, trapping you in the process and making you untouchable.
This glitch is found during multi-player in the Diner. Have player one stand by the first door, and player two by the second door. If you both open the doors at the same time to go inside, you'll see the zombies are now hitting an invisible barrier, making them easy kills. You now only need to worry about the zombies coming out of the other two barriers.
Nuketown 2025 Barrier Glitch
Here's another glitch, this time for Nuketown 2025. Buy the barrier in the yellow building and head out onto the balcony. Line yourself up with the wooden pole so that your crosshair is just slightly off the side of the wood. If you get in just the right spot, you'll be invisible to virtually every zombie.
Jet Gun for All Team Members
Use this trick to outfit your entire team with Jet Guns.
- With a Jet Gun available to be picked up, swap a Turbine for it.
- Now swap back, making the Jet Gun available on the ground again.
- Your partner should now pick up the gun, while you drop your Turbine.
- Your partner now swaps the Jet Gun with the Turbine you just dropped.
- Now head to the Workbench and you should be able to pick up a Jet Gun there, while your partner can grab the one still on the ground.
Floating in the Lab
This glitch can be found in the TranZit Lab. Through the door you open with your Turbine, go up the stairs and jump across the gap at the top. Now turn around and crouch and slowly walk back across the gap. Yes, that's right, you're now floating your way back across the gap.

Street Light Teleportation
To earn the Fuel Efficient achievement, you need to avoid using the TranZit service. So how can you quickly get around without it? Well, the street lights can be used to teleport you to various other locations. Have a Denizen creature attacking you and run under a green light. The Denizen will tunnel into the ground to and you can follow it into the portal, which teleports you to another location based on which other green lights are active. You can use this trick as often as you want to quickly travel around the map.
Build the Jet Gun
When your Jet Gun has reached the end of its limited lifespan, simply rebuild it from spare parts and terrorize your enemies with it again. The parts you'll need to bring to the workbench to make this are the Jet Engine, Handle, Wires, and Headlight.
The Jet Engine can be found in the tunnel between stops 4 and 5. The Handle is between stops 3 and 4. The Wires can be found in the Power Station, on the ledge as you drop down through the hole in the walkway. Lastly the Headlight is found in the cabin.
You'll find the 3 items needed to build this machine within the bank bunker: the Stool, Battery, and Shell. To gain access to the bunker, you'll need to first turn the power on at the power station, then place a Turbine near the door with the lightning bolt symbol on it. That will trigger the same door within the bank to open, giving you access to the bunker.
