    This is most likely the easiest achievement to get in the first DLC (First Strike) for Call of Duty: Black Ops.

    First off, you will need to head to the mystery box and hopefully what pops up will be the Gersh Device. I like to call them black holes, though, Gersh is the name for it. The Gersh device looks somewhat like a waffle maker. You will also notice that you have 3 purple-ish/black-ish circles next to your grenade inventory underneath your score on the bottom right of your screen.

    Next step is to throw the Gersh device using your Left Bumper (LB) when there are five (5) or more zombies around you or around where you are throwing it. Then the black hole will suck the zombies in and you just sit back and watch as you obtain and easy 35 gamerscore for the 'They are going THROUGH!' achievement.

    IGutlessIWonderI'd love to help but I haven't been on TA much lately, let alone playing Black Ops. Flolais' suggestions looks to be legit.

    DROGTURISTJust posting to confirm that Flolais method works fine. I had all map packs and despite getting 10+ zombies with a device 6 times in one game, it wouldn't unlock. Deleted all, cleared cache, reinstalled First Strike and got the patch upon game boot and the achievement popped on the first Gersch I threw.

    I recomend doing this achievement solo because that was the only way i was able to get the gersh device from the box.
    For the first two rounds, just take your time killing zombies with your knife and repairing windows to get money. Then you should buy the revive perk and M14. Open the door upstairs so you have more room to run around. Head to the lander pad and move in circles, killing the zombies until you have at least 3200 points. You should make a crawler and kill the rest of the zombies so you won't be attacked while you are using the box.Open the gate across from the lander pad, head in the building and run to the top floor and open the door to get to the roof. The mystery box is always up there the first time. Now just use the box and hope that the Gersh device shows up. If you don't get it, kill the crawler and fight more zombies to try again.

    Once you have it, get a large group of zombies together and use it. Be careful though, because it takes a few seconds to use it and you might die if you aren't careful.

    The Gersch device is very usefull item in Ascension & Moon which will drag all zombies into this and kill them with an explosion. You have a maximum of 3 of these and you receive 50 points per zombie that got killed (or 130 when you hold the ballistic knife. Check out the image below to find out how it looks like.

    Because no one mentioned it before (although there all excellent solutions), you cannot pick up the "Matryoshka Doll" (there's an image below). You can only hold one item that you can use with cn_LB. Just adding this to all existing solutions because it happened to me twice.

    Happy hunting!

    Nice guide.

    TexasHONZYou say nothing about the achievement. JUST the device. Which is not helpful for getting 5 kills. You have no strategy tips, no helpful places to do it, you don't even say WHERE you get it.

    Bad walkthrough.

    DaOverUnderDownvote because I got the gersch two spins after a matriska.
