I have a friend who seems very convinced that Black Ops zombies simply "never ends," and that it can't be completed or won.

Certainly, the maps cannot continue onto infinity, as these maps would have to exist, and hence have been designed, correct?

I think your asking the wrong question. Black Ops zombie maps don't continue on forever as they are defined maps. According to the game it does not end because zombies continue to spawn stronger and in more numbers as you progress through rounds. The correct question isn't talking about the maps, but the Zombies Spawning. –  Nick122 Dec 11 '11 at 14:14

The maps do not keep going as they are defined. enter image description here

Such as the image above. However, zombies endlessly spawn which causes the game to go on until you die or quit. However, multi-player scoreboards don't seem to be able to score anything over 99.

So to answer your question, yes, zombies go on forever but the maps do not.

No problem, glad I could help. –  Nick122 Dec 13 '11 at 20:56

No, it doesn't end. The difficulty keeps going up (number of zombies spawned, etc.). Presumably with some limit, though.

You're right that the maps don't keep going, although it is technically possible for maps to be generated on the fly. (Think Worms, but more complicated).

It never ends! ZOMBIES GET STRONGER EVERY ROUND! The highest round I reached is 146, where dogs and flying zombies come! dogs are explosive dogs!you just have to survive as long as you can.

Would Treyarch really take that much time to make it never ending? I think they just put it so high it would be impossible for even really good players to get to the end. So I think, yes, the zombies will eventually end!

Actually, it makes more sense to just have an algorithm that makes the difficulty progressively harder. –  SSumner Oct 10 '12 at 16:39
