The Mystery Box is a utility in the immensely popular Zombie Co-op mode in Call of Duty: World at War and Call of Duty: Black Ops.


The Mystery Box's main function is a random weapon generator that costs only 950 points for a player to use. In Black Ops and World at War, there is a large weapon variety which can be obtained, but different items offered up by the box can lead to significant changes in what a player can do with it to last into the later rounds.

World at War Strategy[edit]

The Mystery Box in the introductory Zombies map, Nacht Der Untoten (Literally Night of the Living Dead in German), has a significant advantage all other Zombies maps don't have; it does not roam around the map after being used a certain number of times, meaning that it could be a wise investment to leave a crawler in between rounds and spend all one's money on the device. This Strategy also applies to the remastered Black Ops version as well.
