If you got the Prestige edition or the hardend edition of Black Ops. It comes with a code for the 4 zombie maps from World at War. These maps are essentially easier to get the achievement on and i will show a guide for the easiest one. If you have the reguler edition i suggest playing "Kino Der Toten" as this map is easier to move around then "Five".

Reguler Edition Guide -

For the "Kino" map as ill call it its essential to play with a full party of 4 players since this map is very difficult to get to the higher rounds. They can be friends or randoms from searching. The "VIDEO AT THE BOTTOM OF THE PAGE" shows exactly where each wepon is but do not try to do this on your own since the video is of a modder.

Refer to Video at any time for exact locations of wepons

Rounds 1-3
For the first couple rounds if your playing with friends allow the zombies to come inside before shooting them in the chest 6 times and then knifeing them for points. If your not playing with friends pick a window and and shoot the zombies then knife when they get to the window. At round 3 keep the zombies behind the barricades for as long as possible till atleast round 4 starts. If you dont luck into a Max Ammo buy one of the wepons off the walls as your going to need it. Once round four starts do not knife anymore or you will die.

Round 4-6
Now once round 4 starts your going to want someone on the team to open the door to the left, under the balcony, at the end of the hallway, leading out to the courtyards first. There should be a Spectre sub machine gun on the wall right after opeing the door i suggest two players go into the courtyard and check if the random box is there if it is have everyone buy from it. If its not then buy the Spectre off the wall for a quick resupply spot. Continue trying to kill and milk a little bit of points on the way while staying around the courtyard section.

Round 7-10
For these round you will want to work with your teamates to open as many of the doors in "Kino" as you can. Essentially the map is a big circle that you can use to your advantage of leading the zombies behind you while you and your teamates work your way around the map. Turning around every so often to kill some zombies then continue running. If your running low on ammo ethier try and stop for the box fairly quick or buy a gun off the wall for ammo.

Rounds 11-20
Once you get the hang of running around and haveing them follow you. Continue to get as many points as you can and just continue buying every wepon off the walls that are easy to get to. Once you have all of those make sure you have enough for the last couple ones and quickly sprint to them and buy them for the achievement. If you check off every wepon from the video it will pop once you get the last one you need.

All 4 players may be able to get it at the same time but it would be easyer to have one designated person getting it then to go down the list till everyone has it.

Prestige/Hardend Edition Guides -

The easiest way to obtain this achievement is on the "Nacht Der Untoten" Map. There is essencially 9 wepons on the walls of this map each i have marked exactly what rooms you can find them in and how much it costs to open each room. I found it easyer to do this with 4 people so you do not have to worry to much about the zombies overwhelming you while your getting points. But i will give a small guide of a easy way to do it solo and with 4 players.

Guide - Solo

Round 1 - you should start out by buying the Kar98k off the wall for 200 points then proceed to wait next to the help room. Wait for thee zombies to break the barricades on the windows and come into the room. Once they are inside use the pistol to shoot 6 bullets in the chests of each zombie then knife them for the kill. Repair the windows after to gain even more points. This will give you optimal points the first round.

Round 2 - Replace the Kar98k with the M1A1 Carbine by buying the M1A1 off the wall for 600. After wait for the xombies to enter the room again and use the rest of your pistol ammo on the first zombie then knife him now do not knife anymore after this round. Then use the M1A1 to get head shots on the zombies. Most likely one will drop a Max Ammo crate if you did not kill any zombies outside. If one does pull the pistol out and shoot a clip of 8 shots into the zombies chest before switching for the headshot with the M1A1. Do not forget to repair the windows for a small bonus of points before the end of the round.

Round 3 - If you have pistol ammo keep shooting a clip into the zombies before headshoting them. If not continue headshotting them as much as possible. If you happen to get a insta kill this round just knife the zombies to conserve ammo for later rounds. Repair the windows for a bonus then get ready for the next round.

Round 4 - This round you will most likely want to open the upstairs for 1000. After that is unlocked you will want to run into the far back where the fire is and replace your pistol with the Trench Gun by buying it for 1500 off the wall. With the trench gun and M1A1 in hand use both to headshot or body shot for points. Repair the windows to obtain a bonus of points.

Round 5 - 7 -
These lvls may be the hardest ones to stay alive as the zombies will move fairly faster. Continue useing the Trench Gun and M1A1 to obtain kills. After you have 1000 points go upstairs and unlock the help from uptop. Run to the far back and replace the M1A1 with the Thompson for 1200. Use the Thompson for headshots and the Trench Gun when zombies get to close or theres multiple close together. When you have enough money on you to essentailly buy every wepon left for 5950 or close to it replace the Trench Gun with the wepons your buying. Make sure its safe or you know you will survive before buying all the remaining wepons. Continue gathering points as much as you can if you need ammo buy it for the guns you have off the walls.

Round 8 - 12
If you need to go this far continue farming as much points as you can keeping your distance from the zombies. If you need ammo buy it off the walls for the guns you have. Once you have enough points to either buy the remaining guns you have left or buy all of them for 5950. Make sure its safe and you can survive before you run around buying the wepons you need.

After you get all the wepons the achievement will pop.

Guide - 4 Players Xbox Live

Round 1 - 3 -
For the first couple round most likely your teamates will each pick a window and stay at that window till around round 4. Your first action is to buy the Kar98k for 200 off the wall and then choose a window that no ones at. Allow one zombie to get close enough to take the barricades off the window. Shoot the zombies in the chest 6 times then knife them when they get to the window. When the round is about over repair your window for extra points. Continue doing this untill your pistol is out of ammo once that happens switch your Kar98k with the M1A1 on the wall for 600. Use the M1A1 to get headshots as much as possible.

Round 4 - 6
For these couple rounds have a teamate open the help room or the upstairs.
Help Room - If he opens the help room buy the thompson 1500 off the wall then switch the M1A1 with the Double Barrel shotgun for 1200. Continue farming points with headshots as much as possible.
Upstairs - If he opens the Upstairs buy the Trench Gun off the wall for 1500 and switch the M1A1 for the Sniper for for 1500. Continue farming points with the Trench Gun.

Round 7 - 10
Now you should start buying the rest of the remaining wepons off the walls. Have a teamate open the remaing room to allow you to spend the points you have on each wepon. Once you have bought all the wepons off the walls the achievement will pop.

Round 10 and beyond
If you need to go further for any reason just save all the money you can and buy ammo off the walls for the Thompson and Trench Gun. Continue to gain points and buy the remaining wepons off the walls that you need.

Start Room 0 -
Kar98k sniper for 200
M1A1 Carbine for 600

Help Room 1000 -
Thompson for 1200
Double Barrel Shotgun for 1200

Upstairs 1000 -
Bar for 1800
Trench Gun for 1500
Grenades for 250
Sawed off shotgun for 1200
Sniper Cabinet for 1500

You can Obtain this Achievement on any map in zombies. But this map will be the easiest since it has less wepons then any map. If you do not have the first maps from World at war i suggest finding a group of friends or searching for a group of 4 online for one of the new maps. Use some of the same tips i gave to obtain faster points in the first rounds. Then continue to mooch of teamates while they open the rooms and you spend all your point on the wepons you need.

If there is essentially anything you do not like with the guide please comment before leaving Negative Feedback to allow me to see if thats a resonable complaint so i can fix it. Hope this helps as much as it can. You do not need to follow the guides exactly but useing a few tips from them will help you in the long run.
