Leaked Kino Der Toten Overhead Map View
First thing you need to do is turn on the power switch. Once you have restored the power, the teleporter, perk machine, Mystery Box, and traps will become available to you.

How to Turn On the Power
You need to make your way through the cinema to the backstage. You will come across two paths that lead to dressing room, the left goes from the alley, and right goes from the dressing room.
Take any, and make your way to the backstage. Switch on the power. Once the power is switched on, you have several survival options available to you, also the front door to the theater has now been opened providing more room for you to RUN!.

Teleporter gets you to the projector room with a Pack a Punch machine. In order to activate the teleporter, you must first link it holding the interact button in the teleporter on the stage. You will hear a click sound, when the link has been established. Now, go to the lobby area where you started.
You will notice a pad, stand on it and press the interact button again. Teleporter is live! Make your way to the theater and stand on the pad to teleport to the projector room.

Call of Duty: Black Ops Zombies Kino Der Toten Traps
New Traps have been introduced to Call of Duty Zombie mode, they can be used as a remedy against the hordes of zombies in later stages of the game. There are three types of traps featured in Kino Der Toten.

1# Electric Traps
An electric wall that completely closes one entrance.

2# Fire Pit Trap
Fire Pit as the name indicates creates a pit of fire in the middle of room, roasting zombies that pass through.

3# Sentry Gun
Sentry Guns are like auto turrets, they automatically target and kill zombies in 160 degree arc.

Call of Duty: Black Ops Zombies Kino Der Toten Solo Strategy

Initial Phase of the game
During first five rounds, the strategy should be to accumulate points, as much as you can. More points you accumulate, greater chance of survival in the later stages of the game. You can buy weapons, try Mystery Box and open Barricades etc.

Knife as much as you can. Always headshot, don’t waste ammo on legs of the zombie, aim for the head. Headshot and knife kills give you maximum points. Leave one zombie at the end of round to repair all the broken barricades and weapons you can have if you want.

Only use the gun when you are overwhelmed. Don’t buy weapons off the wall yet, buy quick revive and move on.

Kino Der Toten Solo Strategy Round 10 onwards
Accumulate enough points to buy MP40 + Juggernog/Speed Cola. Once you have accumulated enough points to open the staircase door, and the door next to it with all the portraits. Hit the power and buy Juggernog. (Zombies are faster When Power is switched ON!)

Note. I try not to open any room, or barricade before Round 10. Its easier to handle the zombies till round 10, so no need really for more space to run.

With MP40 and Juggernog/Speed Cola Perk, you can easily last till Round 15. You can buy ammo off the wall for $500. Safely avoid zombie and rack up points till you get a good weapon you are comfortable with from the Mystery Box. Now here is when luck plays a major role, you won’t survive if you don’t get a good weapon at this stage of the game but keep trying.

Call of Duty: Black Ops Zombies Kino Der Toten Solo Strategy Round 15-20
You can either stay in the same vicinity or open the alleyway. It depends whether you want more room to run or you are comfortable already. Your aim is the key! to your success as a lone warrior. But, if you leave it closed, its easier to run around behind the stage.

General Strategies
1# Start on the stage with teleporter open, ready to go at your command.
2# Run Run Run! and keep Running.
3# Group zombies into clusters, and blast them.
4# Run towards where you started the game and then come back. Do it, if you can. It may not be that simple doing then writing but anyway, you can try.
5# Teleporter is your Back Up plan, that is, if you get out of ammo. Which you would for most of the times. Too many zombie whores.
6# You can run away easily being solo, so be quick, and don’t get caught in the cluster of zombies or you are done.

Call of Duty: Black Ops Zombies Kino Der Toten Solo Strategy Round 20 onwards
If you have survived by now, its most probably due to the fact you got your hands on a good weapon and perks. (Ray Gun, LEWTZ!, Light Machine Gun + MP40/Zeus Cannon, All 4 Perks/Monkeys)

Now You need to get lucky and get Thunder Gun!, if you are too survive longer solo in Kino Der Toten map.

Once you get it, upgrade it and go berserk on zombies. Upgrade gets you more ammo capacity, and with its explosive power, you will definitely need more ammo in later stages of the game.

Now use General Strategy #3, and lead them into traps. You can buy traps. For the very reason we have been focusing on accumulating points from the start of the game. If you have been doing so, they will come in handy now.

You can combine Mp40 with Double Tap to accumulate more points fast, though it would mean more ammo needed.

Each bullet will hit several zombies in a cluster. That would mean you get 10 points X no. of zombies the bullet hits. Equals lot of points/cash for you to buy traps.

Its an added bonus if you get double points on the way!

Call of Duty: Black Ops Zombies Kino Der Toten Solo Strategy Round 30 onwards
Tough time now, lot of zombies and they are getting faster and deadlier but, now you are smarter then ever. Experience count for something isn’t it ? you just have to be a bit cautious and it will be all right.
1# Group of Zombies and do the damage to the cluster.
2# Set traps and take most of the upcoming zombies at once with a single trap as they are spawn.
3# Group them and lead them to the traps.
4# Lead them out through the trap in the corridor leading to the lobby, or through the dressing room.
5# Use lobby to run back to the stage. Use alleyway and hit the firetrap to head back to the stage if things don’t go in your favor – weird zombie spawns.
6# Use teleport, buy nades, and spam them in grouped zombies.

When you will teleport back from the projection room, zombie will probably come your way faster from the theater. So, run straight ahead with Zeus Cannon and hit trap immediately. Some still will get through, so be careful, don’t fall asleep after hitting the trap.

7# Survive on the run, be careful entering unknown locations as their might end up infront of a zombie group.

8# Most importantly, use traps to kill zombies, and use Thunder Gun/Ray Gun as your Survival Ticket as a last resort.

Call of Duty: Black Ops Zombies Kino Der Toten Solo Strategy Round 40 onwards
1# Run, Run, Run, Run!
2# Teleport, Teleport.
3# Spam Nades, and repeat.
4# Trap the group, use monkey and blast it with thunder gun. Another good strategy.
5# Group the maximum amount of zombies and activate the trap.
6# Get ammo refill at the end of round, using one-zombie-left strategy but that bastard will be faster then ever. You can leave two zombie alive, they are probably slower as compared the last cunt. I don’t know if its a glitch or something.

Kino Der Toten Strategy +45 Rounds

This video guide below shows you have to reach 45+ rounds in Call of Duty: Black Ops Kino Der Toten Zombie Map. It shows the paths to take, the traps to set, and how to effectively use crawlers to your advantage. Thunder Gun upgraded to Zeus Cannon and go berserk on Zombie whores. Be economical with your ammo, or you are busted. You would need either MP40 or AK74u to evade Hellhounds. You can also easily get its ammo off the wall. After 35+ rounds, weapons become useless, so use trap mostly. Watch the video by GhettoPharmacist for more =)

Black Ops Zombies Kino Der Toten 4 Players Team Strategy

This strategy works with or without the weapon glitch, but the weapon glitch makes it easier. (Discussion Extract from NextGenUpdate)

For the first few rounds make sure to let the zombies in and knife for the final kill. This will get you the most points. Start with 4 rounds to the chest for round 1 and go up by 4 shots each round.

So 1=4 shots, 2=8 shots, 3=12 shots, and so on. Stay here until round 5 if possible, may get lucky with max ammo and such. Save a crawler and take the door right, up the stairs.

Continue Unlocking as many doors as you can going around the right side of the map to the stage, hit the power. At this point it depends on the points left for your team. If you have enough unlock the door across from where you came onto the stage and continue upstairs across the room and down into the alley.

Do not unlock the door at the end of the alley. If you don’t have enough points for all the doors then go another round on the stage until you do. Get either a gun off the wall or the box and do the weapon glitch if you know it and you have the points.

If you don’t know the glitch get perks. Otherwise try to save your points for guns. Go back to the alley and go all the way to the end. Have one man cover the window there and the other three will stand facing towards the gate.

Some zombies will come off in the middle and the rest will come through the gate. Stand in the right spot and they all line up for you. If you are doing the weapon glitch keep the ballistic knives.

Try to make sure the guy at the window doesn’t have either thunder gun or the ballistic knives. The reason why is if someone goes down you must keep someone at the window still because if they break in, it can be tough to recover.

In case someone goes down you have three options.
1# (Requires upgraded ballistic knives) If the person with the knives is alive he will pull them out while the other front man covers, preferably with ray gun, and shoot your downed teammate with the knife which will instantly revive him.

2# Pull out the Thunder Gun and cover while other front man revives.

3# Throw a monkey, man covering window can do this but don’t leave to revive unless you are only one alive. Try to throw your monkey up and over the awning behind the gate. If something goes wrong or you just get overwhelmed as a last resort you can open the door and run.

If you do this try to setup a running path and activate traps as you go. Then to start each round stand in the teleporter and activate the turret gun teleport when they feel to close for comfort or someone goes down.

While up in the Pack-A-Punch room feel free to throw a monkey, if you have enough to spare, and reign hell with either grenade launchers, rockets, or throw grenades and buy more. Once you teleport back, don’t forget to look for power ups in the small rooms you teleport to.

Run up the stair case and through the door and wait for the zombies and activate the fence run to the stage and turn on the second fence in the dressing room if needed.

Try to push back through the middle to the lobby and start the loop again. Activate the teleport whenever it is off cool down and use it when you can. But try to not use it if close to the end of the round just in case you can’t get a crawler so you have it to start the next round.

Also if you are doing the gun glitch and you really want a lot of guns notice none of the weapons on the walls are in the box so trade crappy guns, python, snipers, rocket and grenade launchers for guns off the wall and you can buy back the guns you traded either to keep them or to get even more guns from the wall.
