- — Mission Briefing
IX (pronounced Nine) is the second Zombies map featured in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. Being based in the roman empire, this map features a special enemy: the Gladiators. There are also Zombified Tigers that appear randomly throughout the map. The map also introduces a new wonder weapon, the Death of Orion, as well as a new variant of the shield, the Brazen Bull.
IX is set at a gladiatorial arena sometime during the 80s BC. The map is relatively small, with players spawning in a tunnel that leads into the main arena. From there the player can either buy the door to the Danu temple or Ra temple, with the Odin and Zeus temple gates being accessible from the inside. Each of the temples connect to a circular underground chamber, which leads into the main temple that contains the Pack-a-Punch Machine.
