For those of you wondering how to get this guy...


You need the Black Ops Pass. It runs you $50 (with tax, of course.)

I had the Cymbal monkey, killed 3 zombies, and placed #6.. and I didn't unlock Nikolai so that one isn't true unless there is a certain number of zombies you have to kill.

Also, you must need multiple kills with the War Machine in order to unlock Battery because I got a kill with it and WON the game and I didn't unlock her.
