— Map Description

Nacht der Untoten (German for Night of the Undead) is the first Zombies map of the mode and was the default map for Call of Duty: World at War. Because of this, Nacht der Untoten is highly regarded as more of a prototype for the rest of the mode to come, and includes a little amount of features and many exploits. To play the map, the World at War campaign must first be completed on any difficulty. A short cutscene will then play, followed by the title 'Nazi Zombies'. The map will then begin, taking place in an abandoned airfield bunker. The players play as four unnamed soldiers as they make a last stand during the night.

Nacht der Untoten set the bar for future maps, including basic features that will be used at later dates. The mystery box makes its appearence, purchasable for 950 points and awarding the player with a random weapon; it could be a spare pistol to a wall weapon, or the most powerful weapon in the game. The Ray Gun also makes its appearence as the saga's first and most notable Wonder Weapon, also available from the mystery box.
