What Is Shi No Numa?

Shi No Numa is a classic Zombies map that first arrived in Call of Duty: World At War. The map has since gone on to feature in Call of Duty: Black Ops, Call of Duty: Black Ops III, and more.

It is also the third ever Zombies map, and takes place in a swamp facility somewhere in Japan, and is surrounded by dense forest. Shi No Numa was one of the first Zombie maps to take the mode to the next level in terms of gameplay and features.

Classic gameplay elements such as the mystery box remained the same, but players now had plenty more to take on with the addition of hellhound rounds, ziplines, a moving mystery box, and more.

First Call of Duty: Vanguard Zombies Trailer Revealed

The very first trailer for Call of Duty: Vanguard Zombies premiered on October 14th and fans were blown away by the dark aether weapons, portals, and even a giant demon helping a Nazi soldier to bring Zombies to life.

One of the many things in the trailer that could have been easily missed is the return of Shi No Numa, the classic World At War map.

Not much is known about the return of the map at the moment, but it’s likely that it will be returning as part of the round-based mode in Vanguard Zombies.
