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.

How much are COD Points? How to buy, price, how to spend & more
COD Points are the currency of Call of Duty. Here’s a guide on their price, how you can buy them, where to spend them, and what you can buy.
COD Points have become an integral part of Call of Duty games as they can buy some great cosmetics and other items to show off. So here’s a quick guide to tell you how much points cost, how you can buy them, where you can spend them, and what you can get.
The gaming landscape has changed over the years with the incorporation of microtransactions and live-gaming services. Many games offer extra content – with cosmetics being a big proponent of this. With Cold War and Warzone offering special Rambo and John McClane skins and bringing back legendary Operators like Soap and Captain Price, it becomes easy to see why players would want to spend COD Points.
Call of Duty offers a huge palette of extra goodies you can add to your game and requires COD Points to do so.
So with our detailed guide today, we’re going to run through the basics of COD Points to help you understand them, tell you what they do, and more.
What is the price of COD Points?
There are different amounts and bundles you can opt for when buying COD Points that are tailored to different needs.
Some players just need to top up their account with a few hundred points to get the latest bundle. Whereas some need a big restock with the intention of spending many points. The more points you want, the bigger the discounts grow.
Here are the different prices for the various COD Points bundles:
- 200 COD Points for $1.99 or £1.79

How do I buy COD Points?
You can be very flexible with how you buy COD Points as there are a few different ways to do so. To make sure you’re buying them for the right platform, just double-check with our guide on transferring COD Points across platforms.
These are the various ways you can procure COD Points.
This method is only for PC players.
A quick visit to the Battle.net shop will take you to the aforementioned COD Points bundles, and you can take your pick.
This method is only for PlayStation players.
Head to the PlayStation Store either on your PS4, PS5, or on the Official website and you’ll find the same selection of COD Points bundles.
You will be able to purchase them using money or PSN credit.
Xbox Microsoft Store
This method is only for Xbox players.
Head to the Microsoft Store either on your Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, or on the Official website and you’ll find the same selection of COD Points bundles.
You will be able to purchase them using money or Xbox Gift cards.
Online or select physical retailers will have copious amounts of COD Points vouchers and gift cards for you to purchase. There will be no difference between official sales and retails sales as they will all sell the same bundles.
Where do I spend my COD Points?
Now that you have a nice bundle of COD Points, where do you actually go to spend them? Well, the answer is rather simple: head to the in-game store for the game you’re playing, browse, and buy.
What can I buy with COD Points?
Call of Duty’s currency is used to primarily buy two things: the Battle Pass for the current season and Bundles containing a variety of items.
A Battle Pass is a paid Tier system that allows regular players to earn dozens of extra rewards and cosmetics for essentially playing the game.
Black Ops Cold War and Warzone are currently in Season Two of their respective lifecycles at the moment. Both titles are currently running in tandem with each other and share the same Battle Pass.
It features 100 Tiers for players to smash their way through the course of Season 2, and if players are committed enough, they can actually earn enough COD Points, through leveling up the pass, to get the next one for free.
You can buy the Cold War & Warzone Season 4 Battle Pass via a couple of different methods:
- Purchase it from the Official Call of Duty website
- Buy it from the in-game store on your respective platform
The other main content you can buy is a wide range of Bundles and Operator Bundles. These special bundles vary in price, and each comes with its own unique items.
The collectibles you can expect to find are Calling Cards, Emblems, Operator Skins, Weapon Blueprints, Weapon Charms, and more.

How to get Black Ops 4 for free with PlayStation Plus
PlayStation Plus has officially announced its free games of the month for July, one of which is Treyarch’s Call of Duty Black Ops 4.
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
- 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.
- Go to the store and find the section for free games of the month.
- 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 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.

How to get back stolen & hacked CoD Activision accounts
Find out how to properly protect your CoD Activision account and retrieve it if its gets stolen or hacked with our recovery guide.
Call of Duty Activision accounts are regularly subjected to theft and hacking, so our guide seeks to help you reclaim stolen CoD accounts. We also have some other useful methods to keep your account secure and safe.
Whether it’s issues with Call of Duty’s servers, cheating, or the Black Ops Cold War and Warzone stores, there are always problems that need to be tended to. Regardless of the size and wealth of the company, it’s presumably always going to be hard to keep on top of everything.
But questions have been raised about Activision’s ability to restore stolen Call of Duty accounts and provide support to those players. Thankfully, there are various ways to try and reclaim your account and protect it from falling into the wrong hands.
Activision Account Recovery for Cold War, Warzone, Modern Warfare & CoD Mobile
Many people complain about their Call of Duty account being hacked and/or stolen in whichever CoD title they’re playing.
Players lose access to their data, and most importantly their CoD Points and any purchased bundles or cosmetics. But there is an official process that players need to go through for Activision to be able to take the appropriate action.
To begin proceedings to retrieve your account, you’ll need to contact Activision Support here.
It could take anywhere between 4-10 days for a response on average but maybe longer. This is reasonable given the large volume of queries that Activation presumably deals with on a daily basis.
Live chat & submitting tickets for a quicker Activision Response
Another solution you can try to speed things up yourself is to try and contact a member of Activision’s support team directly.
To do this, you’ll need to complete the following:
- Head to Activision’s ‘Support’ page
- Selection an option from “I need help with”
- Find one that allows you to “Submit a ticket” or will connect you to an advisor to help you personally
Two-Step Authentication CoD Account protection
If you’ve been successful in retrieving your Activision Account or just want to know how to make it more secure, then it would be wise to enforce Two-Factor Authentication.
It’s now a given to see Two-Factor Authentication across the industry to protect accounts across all forms of media. It’s safe, secure, and easy to protect your account.
Here’s what you’ll need to do to activate Two-factor Authentication for your Activision Account:
- Head to Activision’s Two-Factor Authentication page
- Click ‘Set up Two-Factor Authentication’
- Sign in to your account, if you haven’t made one then do so
- Download the ‘Google Authenticator app’ for your phone or tablet
- Scan the QR Code using the app’s scanner
- Enter the Authentication Code for the App
- Press to complete the process
Now you have a secure setup that only you should be able to access.
It’s understandable that players will be frustrated with Activision for not responding to their queries as they want their account back.
At the same time, there are millions of accounts spread across Cold War, Warzone, CoD: Mobile, and Modern Warfare, with potentially multiple questions per player. This guide has hopefully provided some insight on the process and helps you to recover a lost account.
