Call of Duty: World at War - level guide

In contrast to the last level, Eviction is surprisingly easy. The winding corridors of the first part of the level are ideal for light machine guns, so try and find a PPSH and be sparing with the ammo (it chews up bullets real quick). The first real challenge comes when you hit the lobby area and there are enemies shooting Panzerschreks. Aim for them straight away by keeping to the first-floor corridors, and the rest is easy enough. Once you get outside, fight your way down the left side of the street.

This is a great place to unleash Molotov cocktails as you’re given time to prep and aim them, so throw a few at the bigger groups of Germans. Once at the end of this section head into the subway (it doesn’t matter whether you kill the surrendering Germans or not). If you haven’t already, pick up the double-barreled shotgun and push down through the offices and carriages until the end, where the level finishes with a shootout.

Black Cats
This is an on-rails mission, so there isn’t much in the way of strategy required. We have a few handy tips for you though. Always aim slightly in front of enemy planes of your shells will miss, and always be looking out for the opportunity to rescue survivors (the text can easily be lost near the bottom of the screen). You’ll bag an Achievement for shooting down 45 enemy planes, and for shooting out the spotlights on the carriers so keep that in mind.

Blowtorch and Corkscrew
The first part of this level is quite tough. You’re pushing through long grass against plenty of machine gunners and foxholes. The best way to clear it is to burn the grass and flank to the right until you reach the tunnel network. In here just keep burning away with the flamethrower. When it comes to taking out the machine gun nests, again flanking to the right-hand side seems to be the best option. Make sure everyone inside each nest is cooked before you lob in a charge, otherwise you may not have any chance to escape before blowing it up. And, as always, use smoke as often as you can to get close enough to the bunkers.

Breaking Point
Ok, here it is – the final American stage. Storming the castle is relatively simple CoD stuff. Push forward, use smoke, keep low and you’ll soon find yourself in the central courtyard area. When it comes to taking out the mortar holes here be sure to make liberal use of the mortars you find lying around. There’s no dishonor in sitting behind cover and lobbing as many mortars as you can before moving forwards. Through the next couple of courtyards and you’ll enter the main building.

Pay attention here, because once you emerge on the other side of the area Captain Roebuck will attempt to take two Japanese soldiers prisoner. Kill them quickly, or they’ll detonate a grenade and slay Roebuck. After this, it’s a brutal siege fight. The best tactic here is to stay behind cover with a machine gun and shoot anyone who comes near. Once you have an air-strike available launch it at your target straight away. Each one takes 30 seconds to recharge. Call in three strikes against your targets and it’s mission over.

Heart of the Reich
This level is a toughie, but that’s down to poor level design more than anything else. The preliminaries are straight forward stuff that requires you to keep your head down and push forward. When you get to the Reichstag, things get interesting. Taking out the 88s is surprisingly easy. Make sure you’ve cleared away each crew before planting charges and there’s usually enough cover there to give you time to explode each one. Next up is the stairs to the Reichstag itself. You need to fight up the middle staircase to make the end of level event trigger (a column falling through the barricade), but that’s a tall order. Your best tactic is to push up on the right-hand staircase, allowing your men to follow and take the middle stairs. Then head back down and get onto the middle set and you’ll be able to sprint straight to the top.

    COD:WAW just plain sucks. I dont care if they had 2 months or 2 years they could of done a better job with this game. And its not just the fact its World War 2 again: It just seems like Treyarch decided to half-ass the game. Cant wait for Infinity Ward to make the true COD 5

    it annoys me how people say it sucks ONLY because it goes back to WWII. that doesnt make it bad does it?
  • Skykid - November 27, 2008 1:49 p.m.

    This I'll use to my full advantage to kick all people's but who stand in my way.
  • kickazz19 - November 23, 2008 11:21 p.m.

    i agree w/ you fiercemattman... i have it and it kicks ass. i think its better than cod 4. the only thing i dont like is that there not as many semi-automatics. but overall 11/10.
  • FierceMattman - November 23, 2008 5:12 p.m.

    If Captain Price is in this game i swear to god! He has been in every game since COD 2 i think and hes is probably developing every disease out there by now god hes been everywhere. And he smokes too he would be dead by the 1970's aty most! Nice article though.

    World at War sucks compared to COD4!!! Rent WAW before you buy it. I really feel that I wasted my money purchasing World at War. I personally will not play this stupid game anymore. I prefer COD4!!! Why can't people figure out that we all like online playing? The online play sucks compared to COD4. The only people that really like this game are the freaking makers of the game. Everybody else who plays this game HATES it!!!

    I think that it's unfair when people criticise Treyarch for their production of COD 3 while forgetting that they only had something like 8 months to produce it. If Infinity Ward only had 8 months to produce COD 4 I suspect that people would be criticising that game. Treyarch have had something like 2 years to produce WAW and I think it shows in a game which is at least as good, if not better, than COD 4. I may be biased because I prefer the WW2 scenerio of fighting a proper army who have a wide variety of fighters, bombers, ships, tanks, artillary, morters etc. rather than terrorists with RPGs.

    When i first heard this WWII i was like "ah crap..." but i've played the multiplayer Beta and i gotta say this isn't a bad game
  • dylpickle92 - December 10, 2008 2:10 a.m.

  • Skykid - November 27, 2008 2 p.m.

    Hey chester_spartan, why don't you STFU! You'll ruin it for me.
  • CoD_22 - November 23, 2008 9:27 p.m.

    lol gd 1 fiercemattman its an awesome game, although so was cod4...but anyways does the zombie level ever stop or is the whole point of it that it keeps going until you die?
  • FierceMattman - November 23, 2008 5:20 p.m.

    @mattthewdds actually a shit load of people LOVE COD 5 online and actually it is pretty f***n sweet so piss off. If no one liked it then how come its one of the best sellers at EBGames? hmm screw you ill kick your ass at COD 4
  • Hippster - November 23, 2008 12:16 a.m.

    Good game, but i really cant understand the lack of any British troops.
  • agentchq - November 18, 2008 6:11 p.m.

    well me and my friend both take sides and write reviews on it you can read them at
  • CptCHARLES - November 16, 2008 8:12 p.m.

    @overlorduk: couldn't have said it better myself, WaW is basically what CoD3 would've been if they had a proper amount of time to do it. And I mean that in a good way considering that CoD3 is maybe the best game ever when you consider it was made in like 1 thir of the time it took to make 4.
  • ZombiePirate215 - November 13, 2008 3:35 a.m.

    Chester, Infinity Ward is working forward, Activision has Treyarch working on titles in between Infinity Ward products so thatpeople don't get bored. At least they're trying for a new take on the WW2 experience instead of doing modern again or working of the German perspective. Would you rather have Infinity Ward wasting their time on another WW2 game or working on something new and exciting?
