Call of Duty: Black Ops II

Call of Duty: Black Ops II Trophies
Pop Goes the Weasel
In Mob of the Dead, break the cycle.

Step 1: One player gathers 1000 points

As soon as 1 player has 1000 points don't kill anymore zombies. Now go through the door in the 'Library' and then go up the stairs to the first dog symbol. Let the dog eat the remaining zombies. As soon as he has eaten 6 proceed to step 2.

Step 2: Have the player with the most amount of points gather 2000 to open the door on the upper level and open the Roof door

Have the player with the most points kill the zombies then make your way to the Roof entrance, to allow the dog here to eat another 6 zombies. If the key is on this side of the prison, get it now. If it isn't, refer to the next step. The next thing you want to do is open the door to the Roof which is one by going into Purgatory mode, and then going through the entrance in the corridor to near the bathtubs. Then zap the switch.

Step 3: Obtain the Wardens key (If you didn't in step 2) and unlock the wardens office, return to the Roof and pick up the valves if you haven't already.

The wardens key will either be by the cafeteria entrance or by the wardens office (See the video for exact locations). To get it you simply have to overload the power box in purgatory mode (By levitating through the gap at the top). Pick it up when it falls down. You also want to open the wardens office, which is done by going to the right in the corridor in purgatory mode and powering the switch.

Step 4: Obtain the Uniform

The uniform is in the shower rooms; you have to unlock the door then power then switch in purgatory mode. You will now be able to turn the washing machine on and once it finishes it's cycle, pick the uniform up.

Step 5: Obtain the Rigging

This one is pretty easy. In the citadel tunnels, there is a large spiral staircase and you will see an elevator at the top. What you want to do is use the power switch at the top of the staircase to enter purgatory mode. As you go down the stairs, you will see 3 numbers (random each time); you need to enter these 3 numbers in the machine below (Make sure somebody opens it for you). Once you enter it correctly, go through the door to the right of the machine, then take a left. The rigging is at the end of the corridor.

Step 6: Disable the generator in the basement

There is 3 boxes you must overload to disable the generator (This powers the electric over the door in the wardens office). All you have to do is enter purgatory mode, and then shoot the 3 boxes (One is in the purgatory door in this room). Once all 3 are done the generator will start smoking.

Step 7: Obtain the Engine

Go back to the wardens office and the door with electric on you can now open. If the wardens office itself isn't open, refer to the video or see step 3.

Step 8: Obtain the O2 Tanks, get kills with the last dog and obtain the Hells Retriever (Found in the citadel tunnels, a door will have opened)

This is down in the docks. Al you have to door is first open the door, then have 2 people enter the small area. One person uses the junction box to down themselves and enter purgatory, then zap the power switch. This then opens the next door to the tanks. Have the human player pick up the tanks, then once he is back in the main part zap the switch again so you can both get out. Last thing you want to do is get kills with the last dog and obtain the Hells Retriever (Found in the citadel tunnels, a door will have opened). Refer to the video for an exact location. (Feed The Beast Trophy Unlocked!)

Step 9: Add all the parts to the plane

Simply Build the plane and then get on it. Only people who are on the plane will get the achievement. (No One Escapes Alive Trophy Unlocked!)

Step 10: Go back to Alcatraz, start a new round so the fuel cans appear.

You have to do this twice, so the total amount of times you will have visited the bridge will be 3 times. You have to advance a round when you get off the bridge in order for the fuel cans to spawn. When you have been to the bridge 2 times after first going, that is enough.

Step 11: Obtain the 5 skulls using Hells Retriever

There is a total of 5 skulls that you can only see in purgatory mode, but to make things easier on yourself just throw the retriever at the locations below (Refer to the video for more detailed locations):

  1. First one is in the jail cell next to the spawn and down the stairs form the dog symbol. It is next to a normal skull.
  2. The next one is in the Docks. Go to the jug machine and then look at the lamps above. The skull is on the lamp on the right.
  3. The next skull is down the bottom area of the docks. Where the trap is, look to the right and you will see and area across the water. It is on the middle stump.
  4. The 4th skull is on the roof. Go along to the left hand side of the ramp and it is on the corner of the building you see when looking over the edge of the building.
  5. The final skull is in the wardens office. Go to where his desk is then look out of the window. You will see telephone post that is sparking, Throw your Hells Retriever to reach it.

If you got all 5, a Blundergat will appear on the wardens desk. Simply pick it up and proceed to the next step.

Step 12: Destroy the poster, get the 2 spoons.

Come out of the wardens office and look at the cells to the left; one of them has a poster. All you have to do is throw the Hells Retriever at the poster to break it. Now, go to the power switch just behind you and enter purgatory. You will see that a new ghost door has opened to your right. Go through it and zap the spoon on the floor.

The second spoon is in the cafeteria. To the right of workbench, look into the kitchen. On the table to the right is a spoon. Throw the Hells Retriever at it to pick it up.

Step 13: Entering the Prisoner numbers in the number machine

See the video for a way to stay in purgatory longer. Where the number machine is in the citadel tunnels, the numbers should be flashing between 0 and 9 very quickly. You have to enter the following numbers into the machine and allow them to get accepted; 101, 872, 386, 481. Once you enter all of them, the machine should shut down completely and an audio log will play.

Step 14: Pick up the 5 headphone drops

All the headphone drops are on your way to the roof. Head up the stairs and you will see one. Listen to it through, and another one will appear by the exit to the stairs which lead to the wardens office door. Keep making your way up to the roof to fins the rest.

Step 15: Boarding the plane in purgatory mode

Firstly, make sure each player has an afterlife symbol. Secondly, make sure the plane is fueled! All you have to do now is go up to the plane, and it should automatically put you on the plane if you are all standing next to it. After this you'll fly to the bridge and then you need to revive yourself in the chair.

Here's the fun part, Weasel will switch to the zombie team. The zombies will not hurt him but they will hurt the other guys. Simply kill weasel or have weasel kill you. The achievement will unlock either way. (Pop Goes The Weasel Trophy Unlocked!)

Step 1:
Make sure you have The Hell's Retriever
You do this by feeding the wolves that pop out of the wall on three different locations.
Two birds with one stone, You´ll get the awesome tomahawk and the trophy Feed The Beast!

Step 2:
Yoy will now have to acquire five crystal skulls, These skulls can't be seen by the living, so in order too actually confirm the skulls are there you have to go in to Afterlife-mode.
This will of course show the exact locations to the skulls.
The placements are as following:
The first one is by some kind of library in a cell where there is a hook hanging from the ceiling, the skull is right beneath the hook.
The second one can be acquired in the room with the Speed Cola, The first window to the right there will be a sparking electrical pole, The sku

The skull should be on the very top.
The third one can be reached on the left side of the roof, it is resting on the edge viewable from the last opening.
The fourth one is located down by the docks, it should be placed on top of the third pole from the left.
The fifth skull is located on the top of the pole next to Juggernog.
You may have to have went to the bridge before the skulls actually work. I'm not quite sure about that part.

Step 3:
You are now to go to the Wardens office go pick up the gun located on top of the desk in the middle of the room, the weapon is called The Blundergat.

 Comment #7 by traceur2mmy
Thursday, April 18, 2013 @ 10:29:47 AM

Step 4:
Now you will have to take three trips to the Golden Gate Bridge, bringing along with you the Blundergat.
The first trip you can NOT use The Blundergat for anything, The second trip you will have to upgrade The Blundergat. On the third trip you are to just don't do anything with the Blundergat.
It is important to remember that The Blundergat DOESN'T get used to ANYTHING else than upgrading on the second trip to the bridge.
However you are allowed to kill zombies and such with your secondary weapon, But for all in this world, DO NOT use The Blundergat, I can't say this enough!

Step 5:
Now you'll have to be at the bottom of the "wired" stairs, where it is to be placed three numbers on something power applied. You will here have to wright in turn four different numbers:
101, 872, 386 and 481.
REMEMBER!!! This can only be performed in Afterlife-mode.

 Comment #9 by traceur2mmy
Thursday, April 18, 2013 @ 10:32:36 AM

Step 6:
All you have to do in this step is to pick up the recordings-drops that are located all the way up to the roof.

Step 7:
Now one of the four players will have to activate the plane in Afterlife-mode, so that all four players get on the plane headed for Golden Gate Bridge.

Step 8:
Now one of two things WILL happen, either The Weasel kills the other three players, or the three players will kill the Weasel.
After that, all four players should have the "Pop Goes The Weasel"-trophy

This is by far the easiest zombies map I've ever played, and the easiest easter egg I've attempted. Some tips to keep in mind when doing this:
1) Blundergat
The Blundergat is the shotgun / wonder weapon hybrid exclusive to Mod of the Dead, and is the only weapon in CoD Zombies history that can be upgraded twice. When Pack-a-Punched, The Sweeper plays the role of assault. When the Acid Gat is Pack-a-Punched, the Vitriolic Withering plays the role of support. Make sure one player has both a Blundergat from the Mystery Box and the Blundergat from the Warden's Office. One is upgraded with acid, the other is not, both are Pack-a-Punched, and you play the role of assault and support.
Another note: the box will allow one player to have the Blundergat, then it becomes unavailable. If the player
