How to Turn on the Power in Tranzit

This is a work-in-progress. Keep checking back as we add new updates.

  • To turn on the power in Tranzit, you’ll need to get on the bus and ride it to the Power House. To do that, you’ll need to build the Turbine.
  • To build the turbine, grab the mannequin from the central map, a toy plane’s wing under the nearby payphones, and a fan sitting by some seats near the window.
  • Take each part, one at a time, to the workbench to build the turbine. With the turbine, you’ll be able to open doors that would otherwise cost cash to get open.
  • Open the doors to the station and get on the bus. Just ride it all the way down to the Power House, the shed leading down into the station is just across from the bus stop, in a small door that’ll cost you 750 to open.
  • Inside the secret structure, you’ll need to collect three items; the Circuit Board, the Switch, and the Zombie Arm.
  • The Circuit Board is located in a lower inner circular area, sitting up against a stack of crates. The switch is on a computer terminal, right in the corner. The zombie arm is on the ground.
  • All three items are located inside the brightly lit station. These items will cycle through several different spots, so look around. The area is relatively small, so it shouldn’t be too hard to find them all.
  • Construct the parts, and flip the switch to start the power. New paths will open up, and new perks will be available for purchase.

There is a door that says requires power source at the powerhouse and we’ve tried everything to get it to open but it won’t. Help please???

Hiya! As far as I know, that door is only used to open a secret area inside the Bank’s Vault. What you’ll need is the Turbine, place it next to this door that requires a power source, then run to the Bank Vault. Inside, you’ll find a door with a similar label. If the Turbine is in place at the Powerhouse, the secret door will open.

Let me know if that helps!

When i play the tranzit map, the room you first start in has no mannequin or anything else to pick up.

Make sure you play on a difficulty above Easy. Playing on Easy, I’ve ready, will remove many aspects of Tranzit. If that isn’t the problem, please leave us a few more details!

I know this may sound off topic, but I just had to say it.

I bought my blackops 2 disk off amazon the other day and inside it there was a coupon code. At first I ignored it and poped in the disk. So anyways I login to multiplayer and this screen pops up saying : "Please enter your 8 digit code to access your exclusive black ops 2 elite gear."

I was like wtf! This is awesome :3

So I type in the code and a screen pops up saying : "Congratulations! You have received winter camo PP7SH spartanF150" The names were images btw.

It was so awesome! The spartanF150 was a 2 shot assault riffle and the PP7SH had a awesome rate of fire.

Idk if the same link will work for you guys, but you can try it.

Call of Duty: Black Ops II

Tell me if it works :P Gamertag : Damien16
