Black Ops 3: Gorod Krovi Map Layout and Pack-A-Punch First Look

Believe it or not, we may have already seen Gorod Krovi’s map layout and Pack-A-Punch.

Black Ops 3 Descent DLC is right around the corner and the Gorod Krovi Zombies map is slated to play an important role in the zombies storyline. Last week brought us the first trailer for Gorod Krovi, and as per usual with Treyarch’s trailers, some important information was hidden in it. However, one clue that was buried inside the Gorod Krovi trailer is incredibly important. Would you believe that the layout of the Gorod Krovi map was shown!?


We were right! Find out how to use the Pack-a-Punch on Gorod Krovi. And don't forget about our Gorod Krovi Guide Hub, it will be constantly updated with everything you need to know for the new Descent DLC Zombies map.

Original story below.

Gorod Krovi Map

As for map layouts being showcased in the actual maps themselves, it’s not the first time that we’ve seen this in Black Ops 3. Zetsubou No Shima has it’s map layout proudly displayed near the spawn, and for the first week or so, it proved to be very useful for players that weren’t acquainted with the flow and key locations yet. Gorod Krovi is proving to be no different. At the 0:10 mark of the trailer and another at the 0:49 mark, we see two clear images of a layout that look remarkably similar to one another. We believe this is the map layout of Gorod Krovi.

In our first instance, the map is located in what seems to be the room where you will turn on the power in Gorod Krovi. Littered with all sorts of clues as to the backstory and setting of the map, the largest monitor located in the top right of the frame shows what appears to be an x-ray view of an aerial shot of the map. There are tons of smaller buildings in the image, but the ones that are the focal points are highlighted to stand out. Apart from just theory and speculation, the layout follows previous trends of maps we’ve seen in Black Ops Zombies. From those trends, we can denote a starting room, two side rooms and a main hall or building stemming off of that, obviously with trenches, corridors and other little passageways connecting them all.

What is even more intriguing is the fact that the x-ray image matches up almost identically to the above frame in the trenches. Examining both side by side should erase any doubts one may have about this being an important part of Gorod Krovi.

The only downside to the map in the trenches is that it does not seem as complete, so what is missing? On the monitor image, we can see the main playable area of the Gorod Krovi map to the right of the screen, but towards the back you will find a highlighted building way off in the distance. There are dotted lines that stem from various parts of the playable area that lead to this one building. We think this will be one of many Mob of the Dead tie-ins in Gorod Krovi. In MotD, Icarus took our characters to the Golden Gate Bridge to find the Pack-a-Punch. In Gorod Krovi, it is likely that the dragons will fly our characters to this unknown building for the Pack-A-Punch machine.

Although Treyarch likes to hide things in plain view, this highlighted building seems too blatant and obvious for it to be a main staging area of a Gorod Krovi Easter Egg. When you consider that Pack-a-Punch locations have been hinted at in previous trailers, this highlighted building is most likely going to play a part in Gorod Krovi’s Pack-a-Punch

Presumably, you’re going to be able to build the Dragon’s Mount in order to fly to the Pack-A-Punch. However, we won’t have to speculate much longer! Black Ops 3 Descent DLC drops this Tuesday, July 12th for PS4.
