Call of Duty: World at War - Death Card Guide

Gone are the laptops of last year’s Call of Duty 4. Death Cards are this fall’s hottest searchable, and finding all 13 in Call of Duty: World at War’s single player campaign opens up a bevy of cheat-tastic tweaks which you can enjoy in the brand spankin’ new Co-op Mode. Death Cards unlock sweet stuff like exploding headshots, paintball mode, undead enemies, Vampire Skillz and much, much more. Think of them like those elusive Skulls in Halo 3, only nowhere near as hard to find... as long as you know what you’re looking for.


Above: Death Cards enable paintball bullets and exploding headshots! 

Given that these are basically actual playing cards (stuck in the brim of a helmet sitting atop a vertical rifle) relative to the size of your soldier, you’re in for quite a bit of eye strain if you’re brave enough to go it guideless. But fear not, dear reader! We’ve listed the location of each and every Death Card. And along with a list of attributes, we’ve also posted a brief video to guarantee you can catch ‘em all in the first play-through. You’re welcome, soldier!

FYI: We’ve listed the Death Cards in sequential order with the single-player campaign. Tank and Plane missions (Blood + Iron, Black Cats) do not contain Death Cards. Oh, and we killed everyone before scouring for these coveted cards, and you’d be wise to do so as well.



 Card #1: THUNDER

Effect: Thunder: Headshots now cause enemies to explode!

Location: Semper Fi

Immediately following getting your gun in the opening cinematic, veer right and head into the first open shack. It’s a damned good vantage point - and looky there - your first Death Card! Enjoy it, this is one of the only times it’ll be this easy. 

 

 

 



Card #2: HARD HEADED

Effect: Enemies will take less bullet damage.

Location: Little Resistance

Once you’re facing the large Japanese bunker, tuck and run into the trench on your right. Exit the tunnel and dispose of your adversaries, practically unaware. In the very right corner of the large bunker, you can clearly see the Card standing in the brush.


 



 

 

Card #3: SUICIDE KING

Effect:  You’ll get explosive pistol rounds while downed.

Location: Hard Landing

Dispose of as many enemies as possible before running into the building. Before you pass through the structure and on to the outside, look for a small lantern barely lighting the darkened room. You should be able to make out the silhouette of your brand new Death Card.

  • Xizor14 - January 2, 2009 3:17 a.m.

    This is gonna come in handy once I get this game.

    they make the cards so they give you a disadvantage because when you beat them with them on, you can brag about your accomplishments and to make the game a more entertaining game you idiots. and cod5 is a little bit bettter than cod 4 cuz there are tanks and the weapons are more famous. more ppl know about the mp40 than the p90 so they have an eaisier understanding about the weapons. if you haven't played it before, you definity should because once u play it and see how much better it is, u ll see what im talking about. i thought it would be a cod3 with better graphics and different maps, but once u play it, you find that its much cooler

    alright, i was too lazy to go through all the coments to see if someone alread got this, so shoot me if they did. thing is, you forgot a card. its located at the begining of Little Resistence after call the rocket strike on the beach. advance to the beach and hang a right.look for a crater fill with water. jump into this crater and stay there for about 5 seconds. then head for the center of thebeach and look for another puddle. its a little closer to the wall. jump in and stay there for 5 seconds. get out and go to the left part of the beach. find puddle #3 and jump in, stay in for 5 seconds. then walk out in front of it. you'll hear voices and the screen will shake. then 3 black japanese dog statues will rise from the ground. the middle one has the card in its mouth. after you pick it up, you are given an alien ray gun that is an instant kill at close ranges. the accuracy for it sucks, since the shots corkscrew in the air. like i said, if someone else got this, sorry, but i recommend you get this card, cause if you do, it will become available in the magic box in the zombie survival mode. kills all zombies in one shot!

    These are definitely going to come in handy. THANK U SOO MUCH!
  • Darkheart9010 - January 7, 2009 9:53 p.m.

    I agree with InfernoLord. all u losers that hate the death card cheats should shut the hell up and go play something else and not attempt to ruin it for the rest of us. GOT IT!! also who cares if its back to WWII. its a hell of a lot more interesting than any other war the fucking american gov't has put us in. and i, for one, enjoy the single shot guns of WWII to the "fire blindly and hope i hit something" guns of CoD4
  • Darkheart9010 - January 7, 2009 11:11 p.m.

    i love the game but i just think it could have been harder to beat it on veteran mode...thats just what i think don't shoot me for having an opinion.
  • callofdutymaster12 - January 10, 2009 4:37 a.m.

    Im with u Infernolord i think call of duty:world at war is probably the better call of duty because i like the world war 11 stuff better because your actually like in a war.So fuck u if u dont like call of duty world at war.Also just like what infernolord said call of duty world at war takes more skill than modern warfare. call of duty world at war is so much harder than call of duty 4.and pretty soon if they come out with call of duty 6, dont be sayin call of duty 4 is still beter because call of duty 6 will be better than call of duty world at war and call of duty world at war is better than call of duty 4.so its not called call of duty 5 tht is just gay until they come out with the real call of duty 5 call it world at war. Also world at war has much better guns and graphics who wants to play in modern times when you can play back in world war 2 when your actualy in a war. Also you get flamethrowers and all that shit.you get so much help from your friends that are on your team and the online gaming with your friends is so much better. Im not criticizing call of duty 4 im just saying that its not as good as call of duty world at war. IN world at war it is sweet when in the beginniing a guy gets his throat slit and thats whats awesome about call of duty world at war. I dont have cod 4 but ive played it and ive played world at war and world at war seems so much better.Also so many people dont p lay call of duty 4 anymore so many more people play call of duty world at war and they dont bother playing call of duty 4 ever again.also the zombie levels are so much better with world at war.I didnt get there yet but ive seen it and it is awesome.I think there is an unlimited amount of zombies.so i dont y so many people still like call of duty 4 modern warfare when there is a new call of duty out and people dont buy it and it is one of the best games out right now.theres also ears of war 2 which is pretty cool to.so go buy those two games call of duty world at war and gears o war 2 and i just bought those and they both are awesome.Also if you want help to beat gears of war 2 and call of duty world at war just go to this website and look for the guides to help you beat the game and they are very helpful.i dont know what the next call of duty is gonna be but i think its either gonna be call of duty 6 or call of duty 5 or call of duty modern warfare 2 and i know for a fact that they are coming out with call of duty modern warfare 2 this year.so it should be pretty good and even though its modern warfare it still should be a really good game. so i have call of duty 1 2 and world at war so far and i dont know if i should get modern warfare or not. i dont know if it is going to be a waste of my money or if it will be a great choice.i dont know i guess ill have to find out. so back to call of duty 4 modern warfare and call of duty world at war they are great com[etitors but i still have to go with world at war i just like how it is back in world war 2 and all those weapons that you get get also u do get some of the same weapons in all the cal of duties like the m1 garand and the thompson my favorite gun would probably be either the trenchgun or the BAR i dont y they are just good guns because the trench gun is like a shot gun it is means for close shots and the BAR is a machine gun. i dont know about the guns in call of duty 4. so it is a very close competition while a lot of people like 4 and a lot of people like world at war and pretty soon it will be a fight between world at war and the next call of duty and then keep going on with the next and then the next and then the next so it will get pretty annoying though.so im sorry for typing a thing this long i just wanna type the 5000 characters that you are a loud to type and right now i have 1179 characters remaining. im so close to typing it all so im gonna keep going and this is gonna be so long when you read so probably look like a book so not much typing anymore and now im almost under 1000 cvharacters and now i am. so about world at war and 4 again they are both really good games but there will always be fights about it and pretty soon in a couple of years they will both be old and there will probably be like 4 or 5 new call of dutys out so quit fighting over which game is better and we are closing in on under 700 characters remaining. so almost there and this took me so long to typer like a half an hour but im almost there and now under 600. so sorry for it being this long i just wanna use up all the characters and now u nder 500 so i like all the features and graphics on call of duty 4 modern warfare and call of duty world at war (now under 400 characters remaining) and they are both awesome games but i like world at war better because its the newer version and its back in world war 2 so now under 200 characters and thanks for reading all of this i know it is probably boring and now less than 100 characters remaining and thanks for reading this sorry sorry sorry!!!!

  • Baseballwolf - March 26, 2009 6:32 p.m.

    This game is better then cod4 COD 5!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • TehBibblez - March 28, 2009 12:55 p.m.

    For all intents and purposes, CoD:WaW is CoD5 Infinity Ward aren't making a title called CoD5, the current buzz is that it's labelled CoD: Modern Warfare 2. Seeing as CoD:WaW is the fifth Call of Duty title, it technically is CoD5. And the last two CoD titles aren't really comparable in any way. The environment, weapons and tactics involved are completely different. So needless to say, people like them for different reasons. These cards are added to level the playing field for hardcore gamers who found the normal game mode too easy and want a challenge. You don't want increased difficulty? Don't activate them. Pure and simple. And it must be said that CoD:Modern Warfare's colour modification cheats were pathetic, the tire explosion cheat being the only one which actually affected gameplay. I'd much rather have a challenge than run around with my contrast up pretending to be Charlie fucking Chaplain with a P90.
