"Call of Duty: Black Ops – Zombies": How to Build the Navcard Table in Buried

Outside of my day job as a project manager for a construction company, I am an avid gamer with a great passion for "Call of Duty."


The Navcard table has been one of the many mysteries of the Call of Duty – Zombies saga. We have previously built a similar table in Tranzit and Die Rise. However, part of the mystery has been revealed. By building the Navcard Table in each map and inserting your Navcard, you will be able to see more of the story after you finish the Easter Egg.

There are four parts that make up the Navcard Table. All four parts remain in the same area and do not move. The first three are found in the same room in the Town Area. The last piece is back at the location in which you originally spawned. This location can only be reached by Teleporting.

The Parts

  • A Board
  • The Card Reader
  • An Electrical Panel
  • A Meteor

The Steps

  1. Three players pick up the Board, the Card Reader, and the Electrical Panel.
  2. Teleport back to the beginning.
  3. Build the parts on the Navcard Table Building Area.
  4. Pick up the Meteor and build it onto the table.

Pick Up the First Three Parts

The first three parts are located in the town area. They are in a small "room" between the Barn and the Gunsmith. This area can be accessed by having the Giant smash through the barrier, or by buying the door inside the Barn.

Each player can only hold one of these parts. If you are building this alone you will need to travel through the Haunted House and Teleport at least three times.

The Board

The Board is exactly as it sounds, a long brown board. It is standing upright in a corner close to the barrier. If walking in through the barrier it will be the first corner directly to your left.

The Card Reader

The Card Reader is a small box that looks like a VCR. It is sitting on the ground in a corner. It will be on your right if you are walking through the barrier.

The Electrical Panel

The Electrical panel is hiding in plain sight. Instead of being on the ground, it is attached to the building. Look for it on the left wall if going through the barrier.


Teleporting to The Beginning

After you have all three parts, you will need to Teleport back to the beginning. In order to do this, you will need an explosive weapon (preferably a Ray Gun Mark II). You will also need to go through the Haunted Mansion.

Build the Parts

When you teleport you will appear back in the room in which you started the game. Except you will be on the lower level of the room this time. The Navcard Table Building Area is next to some cabinets. You will not see anything there, but if you approach that area an onscreen indicator will pop up telling you to "add a part" by pressing your action button. Add the three parts you have already picked up.

You do not have to put these parts on before the Meteor, but I put this step first since you are already holding the parts.

Pick up and Build the Meteor

The Meteor right past the cabinets by the Navcard Table. I believe it is sitting on the ground. Unfortunately, I did not pick this part up myself, and can not rebuild the table since I already have it built. But I watched the other player pick it up.

Pick up the Meteor and build it as you did with the last three parts.

What You Need to Know

  • The Die Rise Navcard goes into the Buried Navcard Reader.
  • Building the Navcard Card Table and inserting the Navcard is not necessary for the Main Easter Egg.
