What is ‘Classified?’

Classified is the name of a new Zombies map in Black Ops 4 that will offer players an alternative Zombies experience to enjoy aside from the campaigns.

According to Zombies director Jason Blundell, Classified will be a remake of the classic ‘Five’ map, and will follow the story of the Ultimis crew that started back in World at War.

The map will be included with the Black Ops Pass, and will be available in the game right from its launch on October 12.

Reddit user ‘Omnipotentem’, who has leaked accurate information about Black Ops 4 in the past, has posted some new details about Classified, including its layout, design, loading screens, and more.

Prior to these leaks, there was very little information known about Classified other than what Treyarch had publicly revealed in recent months. 


  • The Classified Loading Screen features Samantha Maxis.
  • The layout of Classified is similar to that of Five, however there are multiple new and updated rooms, as well as an entirely new Pack-a-Punch area.
    • Spawn
      • Nearby is the first new room where a Teleporter and the 1st Perk Machine can be found.
      • Increased debris.
    • War Room
      • New wall-buy weapons.
      • 2nd Perk Machine.
      • A large globe with red shining lights can be found on the ceiling.
      • An area which is locked via keypad and requires a code for entry.
      • New server room featuring a Mystery Box, Teleporter, and piece of a buildable Trap.
    • Lab
      • Buildable parts for the Shield, Traps, and Power Switch.
      • 3rd Perk Machine.
    • Pack-a-Punch (Old)
      • Where the Pack-a-Punch Machine was located in Five is now a buildable part which is used to amplify the Teleporter and take you to the new Pack-🌕-Punch location which is cluttered with debris.
  • Alongside Hellhounds, Nova Crawlers return. Nova Gas negates player movement more than the original.
  • Writing can be found on the walls of Classified:
    • “Die to find the truth”
    • “Richtofen is the key”
  • Monitors around the map show iconic locations from the Aether storyline such as Ascension, Moon, MPD, Zombies, and Richtofen himself. TVs also show the location of the Mystery Box and sometimes an Illuminati symbol.

In addition to leaking new details about Classified, the Reddit user has posted some new information about general Zombies gameplay. 


These details are not exactly specific to Classified but are necessary for context sake.

  • Double Pack-a-Punch returns.
  • Despite using the Perk system that the Chaos maps use, the Aether maps use Perk Machines, not God Statues.
  • Perks and the order in which they are present in the map are assigned on a per-player basis.
  • New Perks:
    • Blood Lust/Death Wish – Upon losing the last of your health you are given a second chance and buffs. Has a cooldown.
    • Defensive Tortoise – If the player has equipped the buildable Shield they are protected on all sides, an explosive blast is created upon the Shield being destroyed.
    • Stronghold – Creates a defensive zone around the player while shooting.
    • Widow’s Wail – Similar to Widows Wine, taking damage activates a defensive explosion which freezes Zombies. 2 charges before cooldown.
    • Perception – See Zombies through walls and receive an indicator on-screen when a Zombie is approaching from another direction.
    • PhD Slider – Do I really need to explain? Must be charged by sliding before it can be used.
    • Bandolier – Carry more reserve ammo.
    • Time Slip – Decreased cooldown time on equipment, Perks, and Teleporters.
  • New Elixirs (Gobblegum replacement):
    • Unknown – Teleport to a downed teammate.
    • Control Z – Nearby Zombies become allies and attack hostile Zombies.
    • Unknown – Drop points for teammates to pick up.
  • Talisman Modifiers:
    • Start with certain Perks.
    • Never lose the Perk equipped in X slot.
    • Mystery Box Guarantees.
    • 30+ more
  • Special Weapons (Katana, DG-5, Flamethrower, and Death Machine) increase in strength as Zombies are killed using them.
  • Special Weapons are used to grant the player Armor. The Juggernog Perk is seemingly removed.
  • Operator Weapon Mods from Multiplayer are usable in Zombies.
  • Throwable Equipment:
    • Grenade
    • Semtex
    • Molotov
    • Acid Grenade
    • Fire Grenade
    • Deployable Turret
    • and more

This is not the first time this Reddit user has leaked information about Zombies. Several months ago, he posted details about special weapons, the cinematic for Blood of the Dead, and more

Just as with that post, he has ended this recent one with “See ya soon,” which could suggest that he has more information to leak up his sleeve.
