Question: How Do I Find My CoD Black Ops Serial Number?

Before you can install CoD Black Ops you'll need to find the serial number that came with the game. CoD Black Ops requires that you enter a unique serial number before using it.

If you've lost your serial number, there may be a way to find it as long as CoD Black Ops is still installed. You might be able to find your CoD Black Ops serial number if the game is uninstalled but only if the serial number data was left in the Windows Registry.

The Call of Duty: Black Ops serial number is actually more of a product key than a serial number but the terms are often used interchangeably.

Answer: The best way to find your CoD Black Ops serial number may be with a product key finder program.

Using a free product key finder program would certainly be the easiest way to find your unique Call of Duty: Black Ops serial number. Product key finder programs automatically search your computer for the product keys and serial numbers that your software programs store in the registry.

If you knew the exact registry key that stored your CoD Black Ops serial number you could find it manually but that information is usually hard to come by.

Most product key finder programs are designed to find serial numbers and product keys for operating systems like Windows 7, Windows Vista, or Windows XP but some of them find serial numbers for several other programs too - programs like CoD Black Ops.

I've reviewed several product key finders but I haven't been able to personally confirm if any of them will find your CoD Black Ops serial number. The best key finder programs are quick to download and completely free so feel free to try them all until you find one that will show your CoD Black Ops serial.

Here are two of the more popular programs that find serial numbers and product keys:

If neither of the above programs find your Call of Duty: Black Ops serial number, give some of the other key finder programs a try from my Free Product Key Finder Programs list. Be sure to let me know what programs did or did not find your CoD Black Ops serial so I can keep this page updated.

Important: You may have come across CoD Black Ops keygen programs or other kinds of CoD Black Ops cracks but keep in mind that these are not legal ways of obtaining serial numbers or product keys. The only legal way of installing this program is by using a valid CoD Black Ops serial number obtained through a legal purchase of the software.
