Nacht Der Untoten
In Call of Duty: World at War there is a survival horror themed mode called "Nacht Der Untoten" ("Night of Undead" in German) which is unlocked by completing the campaign solo on any difficulty. The game mode involves you, and anyone else you're playing with, to be stuck inside a two-story house while an infinite amount of German zombies attack. The rounds in this gametype get harder and harder until all players are dead, although with more than one player you can revive others for them to stay alive.
Because of the possible difficulty of this gametype the programmers created a gun that you cannot access in any other gametypes, that gun is the Ray Gun which is a one-shot kill semi-automatic pistol with 20 bullets per clip and 160 bullets in reserve. the bullets are explosive within a small radius and can be fatal to the shooter.
The gun is accessed through the HELP room, commonly known as the HELL room because of the scrawled HELI on the door, with the 'P' being incomplete. The room contains a weapon chest, where if you pay 950 points (collected by; shooting zombies, repairing barriers and killing zombies) and when you access the chest you have a chance of getting any of the guns programed in, the guns range from the Springfield and M1 Garand to the Deployable MG42 machine gun, the Deployable Browning M1919 and the Ray Gun. The box also includes special weapons that in other gametypes count as inventory items, these are
- M2 Flamethrower
- The only other place the flamethrower counts as a weapon is the campaign.
- M9A1 Bazooka
- Molotov Cocktails
- Accessed with the Left Bumper,
- A Sawn-off Double-Barreled Shotgun
It is unavailable in the Wii version.
