Nacht der UntotenEdit

Nacht der Untoten is an old, abandoned airfield, where Tank, Nikolai, Takeo and Edward are the only four survivors of a first zombie outbreak. In this level, Zombies swarm the four survivors while they must fend them off long enough to escape.


Verruckt is a zombie-infested sanatorium, where Tank, Nikolai, Takeo and Edward flee to after escaping Nacht der Untoten. Throughout the map, there are several marines locked up in some rooms, which lead to the next level.


Weglaufen is an abandoned, zombie-filled village that is near a swamp. Nikolai, Tank, Takeo, Edward and marines (if any are freed) flee here to escape the zombies that were at the asylum.

Shi No NumaEdit

Tank, Takeo, Edward and Nikolai flee to a swamp, surrounded by a jungle. The group must destroy the zombies, while trying to escape from the swamp. The group then discover the Wunderwaffe DG-2's ultimate power, granting them the ability to escape the hoards of zombies and the newly discovered Hellhounds.

Der RieseEdit

Tank, Edward, Takeo and Nikolai reach the area of truth: the creation of the zombies and hellhounds. As the group battles the infinite enemies, they start to discover the truth behind Dr. Edward Richtofen and the zombie experiments...
