- — Mission Briefing
Blood of the Dead is a Zombies map that is featured in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. It is a reimagined version of the fan-favorite map Mob of the Dead from Call of Duty: Black Ops II, featuring the same map, while expanding and adding several playable areas within the map. It also features the 'Primis" crew - the Origins versions of Tank Dempsey, Nikolai Belinski, Takeo Masaki, and Edward Richtofen - as the four playable characters, replacing Albert "Weasel" Arlington, Finn O'Leary, Salvatore "Sal" DeLuca, and Billy Handsome. Brutus also makes a return in this map. Unlike Mob of the Dead, Hellhounds are also featured in the map.
Nikolai: Was stumbling around in total darkness part of plan?!
The screen cuts from black to a lighter lit by Dempsey. Richtofen takes the lighter from him and leads the way, with the others following.
Dempsey: You give us the fire, we'll give 'em hell.
Takeo: Do not speak so lightly of hell-
Dempsey: Easy, Tak. I didn't mean the real thing.
Richtofen stops at a hole in the wall, as he found an entrance to the prison.
Richtofen: Gentlemen, we are here.
Richtofen tears the movie poster blocking the hole, and Primis crawls through the hole and into the cell block.
Nikolai: Where have you taken us?
Richtofen: We should be closer to the lab...no matter. Er, this way, if you please.
The scene transitions to the underground lab with four cryochambers holding the Victis crew. Another Richtofen from another dimension is then seen reading the Kronorium, who is not carrying his own pair of blood vials, seemingly waiting for Primis' arrival.
Lone Richtofen: You're late!
Lone Richtofen turns around in frustration and closes the Kronorium and greets his other self.
Lone Richtofen: Doctor.
Primis walks up to the lone Richtofen.
Richtofen: Is there a problem?
Lone Richtofen picks up three pairs of blood vials from the table and hands them to Primis Richtofen.
Lone Richtofen: Two for each of them, survival depends on it...ya, ya, ya, you remember!
Primis Richtofen hands over the blood vials to Dempsey.
Lone Richtofen: Argh, there's so much to do. A vessel for Maxis, the opening of the gateways...
Richtofen: Are you sure you're not getting...confused?
Nikolai walks up to inspect one of the cryochambers which is holding Misty in place. Lone Richtofen then hands over the Kronorium to his other self.
Lone Richtofen: Ahh, you will be needing this.
Richtofen: The Kronorium? But I've already read it!
Lone Richtofen: Read it, again.
A portal opens up behind lone Richtofen as he turns around and prepares to leave. Richtofen starts to read through the Kronorium with confusion and frustration.
Richtofen: What is the meaning of this? The pages have changed, they-our blood? MY BLOOD? You cannot possibly expect me to let this happen?!
Lone Richtofen turns around and gives Primis Richtofen a look before stepping through the portal. Furious, Richtofen throws the Kronorium at the closing portal.
Richtofen: YOU SON OF A BITCH!
The Kronorium hits the wall and lands on the ground with it open, and then closes by itself. Dempsey, Takeo and Nikolai walks up to Richtofen.
Dempsey: Let me guess, you're not gonna let us in on what that was about?
Nikolai: Or explain why you have people in freezer?
Primis hears a group of zombies headed for their location and turns around in shock. Richtofen proceeds to leave the underground lab with the others following.
Richtofen: We are leaving.
Takeo: (In Japanese) Damn!
Nikolai: (In Russian) Yeah right!
The scene changes to Primis back in the cell block. Takeo proceeds to slice a zombie that is blocking their way in half with his katana, Richtofen and Dempsey uses their pistols and starts to kill zombies surrounding them, Nikolai throws a hatchet at a zombie down the hallway of the cell block. A portal is seen opened at the other end of the hallway. Primis starts to make a run for it.
Richtofen: There! Get to the portal now!
Out of the blue, Brutus crawls out from behind the Warden's Office, obstructing Primis's path. Primis looks at Brutus in horror.
Brutus: I will be reborn!
Brutus uses its baton to destroy the portal. The portal's destruction kills Brutus and knocks Primis to the ground. Richtofen stares at the destroyed portal, as it disappears.
Richtofen: Mein Gott, what have...what have I done?
More zombies starts to swarm behind Primis. Dempsey grabs Richtofen and pulls him up.
Dempsey: Move it, Doc!
Primis escapes into the generator room from the docks. As they begin to get swarmed by zombies, they retreat to the lower level of the docks. Nikolai shoots his shotgun before Takeo slams the door shut on the zombies. But to no avail, the zombies knocks down the door and continues to chase Primis. Primis then comes to a dead end at a dock, with zombies swarming all over their location. Primis is then left stranded on a dock and the screen cuts to a wide shot of Alcatraz Island with a stormy weather, and the Golden Gate Bridge can be seen at the background. Screen cuts to black.
