CoD:WW DS Guide

Updated on: 5/10/10


As a precaution, it's always recommended by the DS section to write down your friend code. A recent glitch has caused peoples friend codes to disappear so they can't give out friend codes. The only solution to this problem is to buy a whole new game card. Write it down!

-Call of Duty: World at War is Rated T for Teen due to the following content: Blood, Mild Language, and Violence.

-If you have epilepsy or have had seizures or other unusual reactions to flashing lights or patterns, consult a doctor before playing the game.

-If you like the Guide, rate it! If you want something changed, let me know!

In order to help you guys skip through the guide, I've added a quick find system. Just use Ctrl+F to find what you are looking for.

Single Player

You have two options, you can start a new game or you can continue from where you start offed at.

Quick Play: If you want to jump quickly into action you can choose this mode. You have three difficulties: Easy, Medium, and Hard.

Tip: I would recommend you do Hard at this stage, that way you can get Easy and Medium done all at once.

In Multiplayer mode you can Host a match or Join an existing match. In order to do this, all player must have a copy of Call of Duty: World at War in order to play. You must be close to each other in order to receive a good signal.

Tip: I would advise you to go to eP or CM for chatting while playing.

World Wide Match: When you click on this you are able to play with people either locally or around the world.

Tip: Remember when playing online, there are glitches, I don't advise you to play online as people will glitch. Please make friends with the community so you can have friendly matches. eP sets up matches every 2:00 PM EST every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday.

Friend Roster: Here is where you can view your Friend Codes and add friends to your list.

Tip: I was warned that there has been a glitch where you couldn't see your friend code. Please write down your friend codes and store it in a safe place if you want to play friend matches.

VI. Multiplayer Information

There are 10 maps in all with modes: Free For All, Death Match, Hunter Prey, Capture the Flag. You can set time limits, score limits, and the respawn times.

Time Limit: 1-20
Score: 1-20
Respawn Time: 5-30 seconds


Field: Small in size, Field has three weapons that can be picked up, a Bazooka, and two sniper rifles. It has an outlaying path around a field full of hay bales. A house on one side and a barn on another, these both have an upper floor for the perfect sniper positions.

Hill 26: Small in size, Hill 26 is a map that you can be easily ambushed on. You must watch your back wherever you go, whether it be in the bunker or in the cave area, there are many spots where the enemy could pop out.

Island: Large in size, Island is a map is neat to look at, but deadly too. It features a long building, full of surprises, and a tall building for sniper support, you may have a good time playing this map.

Palace: Large in size, Palace is a map you need to watch your back with. Easy to be ambushed, Palace has a large hole in it's courtyard with tunnels leading to stairs on four outer sides. The enemy could be on your back before you realized it.

Subway: Medium in size, Subway has many hiding spots for those who like to camp. Remember what Captain Price said...

Trenches: Large in size, Trenches is a simple map. Two bunkers, one on each side of the field, and a large trench system. You can obtain a sniper in each bunker, making it perfect for those who can shoot through a scope.

Jungle: Medium in size, Jungle features an annoying glitch, which is used almost 100% of the time. It has paths leading to every place in Jungle, from the Tank, to the Village, to the Bunker and back again, camping (not encouraged) might be your only trick. Guard the glitch spot with your life, to get easy kills.

Rhine Forest: Medium in size, Rhine Forest has a road that splits the map. Ruined buildings on one side, and a large cabin on the other, it makes a good spot for sniping. Be aware though, you can be killed with a grenade on the top floor. Rhine Forest features a glitch/easter egg. Near the cabin, crouching and walking towards the map boundary will cause the player to go into the hill. Anyone who does this is 100% untouchable unless they stand up, exposing their head. There's a snowman inside that area, meaning it was possible that this "glitch" was intentional.

Seelow: Large in size, a easily confusable map, Seelow is in a section of town that has recently seen battle, so there is all sorts of debris everywhere. Be careful though, near the trenches and MG nests, there lies a Sniper Rifle, waiting to pick off those who are prepared.

Shuri Approach: Large in size, Shuri Approach is a map where you could be attacked anywhere. It has a series of metal stairs with holes showing your position away. A sniper rifle and a bazooka can be obtained on the map.
