Why Shangri-La is the Best Map to Date

Shangri-La, the latest zombie map to come out for Black Ops in the Annihilation map pack. But why do I think it is the best zombies map to date? And why do I think you should too?

I think Shangri-La is the best zombies map to date because of the new easter eggs, new weapons, new perk system, new zombie types… basically, I think that Treyarch has thought about making this map very seriously and they should be congratulated.


New Weapons

There were new weapons mentioned earlier, the Spike more and the 31-79 JGb215. Let’s learn more about them.

The Spikemore

The Spikemore, as defined in The Call of Duty Wiki, is a variant of the Claymore, an anti-personnel mine. Or in this case, the anti-undead mine.


  • It costs 1000 points.
  • It can be purchased multiple times.
  • You get two of them at the start of a new round, like frags.
  • It functions similarly to the claymore, but instead has Punji Stakes* with fireworks attached.
  • The Punji Stakes* seem to bounce around a bit when they are fired.
  • Spikemores are more effective on zombies rather than its cousin, the claymore. Claymores lose its one-hit-kill ability at round 20; while the Spikemore, at round 25.
  • They play a part of the Shangri-La Eclipse Easter Egg, needed to plug holes in the tunnel with the MP5K.

*Punji Stakes will be explained later.

31-79 Bla Bla Bla Bla Bla Bla!

The 31-79 JGb something is the latest Wonder Weapon (Wonder Weapon, like the Thundergun or Ray Gun) to appear in the zombies miniseries which causes zombies who were shot at too, uh, babyise. Shrink! I mean shrink.

Get your facts right!

  • It is also known as the Baby Gun and the Shrink Gun.
  • It causes zombies to shrink, with big heads and tiny bodies.
  • Once shrunk, the player can run and kick them into the air, vanishing and killing them. They can also be killed with one shot of any weapon.
  • Pack-a-Punched version is The Fractaliser, with increased ammunition and the shrink effect lasts longer.

Let’s get on with the Easter Egg!

The Shangri-La easter egg, known as the Eclipse easter egg is the long easter egg featured in Shangri-La, along with the musical easter eggs. The easter egg ‘focuses on helping Brock and Gary escape Shangri-La, while Richtofen tries to harness the power of the Focusing Stone using the Focusing Crystals.’ What? That’s why there’s these steps. And video. You can do this easter egg four times, causing all players to receive… the reward.

  1. All this really does is state the new features Shangri-La brings. You don’t really explain what makes it stand out.
