Zombies World Record beaten after nearly 300 hours of Call of Duty: Black Ops 3

It took one Twitch streamer nearly 300 hours of gameplay to beat the World Record for Black Ops 3’s Nacht Der Untoten Zombies.

Published

black ops 3 nacht der untoten

One player has done the unthinkable and beaten the Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Nacht Der Untoten Zombies World Record by reaching round 255.

Zombies has a storied history dating all the way back to 2008 when Call of Duty: World at War came bundled with a bonus mini-game called ‘Nacht der Untoten.’ The legendary Nazi Zombies mode would go on to reach ridiculous levels of popularity to the point that Treyarch had to make extra Zombies maps.

Since then, virtually every single CoD title has included new versions and variations of the Zombies formula. Black Ops Cold War is currently enjoying the launch of Mauer Der Toten, the freshest Zombies experience.

However, one Twitch streamer has overlooked modern Zombies in favor of a previous game – Black Ops 3. After 20 days of playing the same game of Nacht Der Untoten on and off, a new World Record was set.

The feat was accomplished by CoD Zombies Twitch streamer TomPhantasy as he smashed the previous record by a staggering 40 rounds to reach Round 255.

Beginning his run on July 2, he spent the next 20 days clocking up nearly 300 hours of game time to obliterate the previous Nacht Der Untoten record.

Remarkably, he was only downed twice, and they both came once he’d surpassed the record figure anyway.

The final seconds of the footage are of the streamer clearing up the last few dregs of Zombies until the round icon in the bottom-left changes to 255.

This absolutely smashes the previous record of 216 rounds set by user Chihiro-516, and may never be beaten.

Dexerto was even able to secure an exclusive word with the streamer to get more reaction to his feat: “The Zombies community has been supporting me for months when I have been attempting this record through the highs and lows,” he said.

He continued: “I knew I had to keep going, because after 24.8 days the game freezes, This meant I had to play 13+ hours per day for those 25 days.”

Massive congratulations need to go to the player who was able to gut his way through an arduous three weeks of Zombies. With Mauer Der Toten very much the new Zombies craze, we wonder if he will one day attempt to set the record for it.

Also, for some more incredible accomplishments, check out the Cold War player who reached 10th Prestige without killing a single player.

Black Ops 4 Playstation plus

It looks like PlayStation Plus users will be able to get their hands on Treyarch’s previous title, Call of Duty Black Ops 4, as the free games for the month of July are unveiled.

Like every month, PlayStation Plus users gear up and get ready to see what game will hit the stores for free. Call of Duty fans will be excited to know that July will feature Black Ops 4, Treyarch’s previous title to Cold War.

With Black Ops Cold War now in Season 4, perhaps new players are intrigued to see if it differs from Black Ops 4, or maybe old players would like to return and see how it feels in 2021. Whatever the case, here’s how you can redeem Black Ops 4 for free.

Being a Call of Duty player on PlayStation is very beneficial, as not only are players now allowed to play Warzone without a PS Plus membership, those who subscribe to the service often receive free cosmetics and game modes early, like the Black Ops Cold War Zombies mode Onslaught.

With that being said, PlayStation Plus users will now also be getting Treyarch’s 2018 Call of Duty game for free beginning on July 6, 2021.

How to get Black Ops 4 for free with PlayStation Plus

  1. In order to get Black Ops 4 for free on PlayStation Plus, you must first make sure you have an active subscription to the service.
  2. Go to the store and find the section for free games of the month.
  3. Black Ops 4 should be under this section in the PlayStation Store and considering you have an active membership, you should be able to download it directly from the game page.

PlayStation posted a blog regarding the free PS Plus games for the month of July, which will be available on July 6, with a description for Black Ops 4 that reads:

“Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 delivers a trio of action-packed multiplayer modes* for first-person shooter fans. First, there’s the series’ iconic multiplayer experience pitting players against each other worldwide. Second, is the fan-favorite Zombies experience, letting you and friends battle the undead. Last but not least is Blackout, an intense large-map mode inspired by battle royale. Blackout brings together characters, locations, weapons, and gear from across the series in all-out survival combat – all with a unique Black Ops twist.”

This is great for those who want to experience a different multiplayer, and there should be a decent amount of players on the game, considering it will be free during the month. Further, Black Ops 4 also has a Zombies experience, so for those who something different to the multiplayer, this will be perfect.

Black Ops 4 PlayStation Plus

Black Ops 4 is very different from any other Call of Duty game, making it a fairly unique experience to the more classic Call of Duty games. With a slower TTK, and Specialists to chose from with varying abilities, Black Ops 4 takes on a more tactical stance on Call of Duty’s multiplayer.

Well, there you have it, that’s how you can download Black Ops 4 for free on PlayStation Plus in the month of July.
