NOWgamer.com recently had chance to witness the Black Ops 2 campaign in action and did a great job of capturing the smaller details (like guns) that everyone else missed. Treyarch recently lifted the lid on two full campaign levels – The Los Angeles-based mission Protect P.O.T.U.S and a Strike Force Operation battle in Singapore – which were both set in 2025 and showed off tons of future tech.

According to NOWgamer:
-In the campaign, David Mason was seen using:
Type-95 with an “X-Ray ACOG” scope
KSG (Shotgun)
VECTOR (smg) “Rapid fire rate, bad recoil”

-X-Ray ACOG: See enemies behind cover to shoot through walls. (Rumored to be a MP killstreak)
-Guns are “being rebalanced from the ground up for this game that we’re creating.”
-Weapon balance is top of the agenda. “Weapon balance is critical. With Black Ops multiplayer, there was a certain balance of gunplay and gameplay that we wanted to strike.”
-Campaign hints that “hacking or tracking” could come to MP based on Mason’s wrist mounted device. Seen hijacking Quadrotor and CLAW via a dart and beacons on armored vehicles.

-Mark Lamia confirmed to NowGamer that Black Ops 2 would include a 4v4 zombies mode, which could hint at two teams fighting each other – and hordes of the undead – to ensure survival.
-Every vehicle shown in the presentation – quadrotors, CLAW mechs, treaded turrets and jets – were NOT ON RAILS and could be used at will by hacking or jumping into them at certain story points.
-Quadrotors seem to control like Modern Warfare 3’s recon drone killstreak, but come armed with a brutal chaingun.
-“[Figher Jet Mission] is entirely sandbox and free form, similar to Tom Clancy’s HAWX series, putting the dull, on rails jet section from Battlefield 3 to shame.”

      Will be rebalanced. Because a gun comes back, doesn’t say it will be the same. And of course different developers. Maybe the Type-95 is full auto in Black Ops 2? We don’t know.

        I think Mitch is right. If Treyarch is incorporating the Type 95, why wouldn’t they make it their own and distinguish it from MW3’s Type 95 in some way? Plus, I hope Treyarch didn’t make the KSG as shitty as the one in MW3 and hope that the Vector sounds/looks different from the one in MW2. As long as all these guns have their own personality in BO2 and are not virtually identical to their versions in the other CODs, I’ll be happy to use them.

          Well Treyarch has been known for taking the weapons we know from the Modern Warfare series and heavily changing them as was seen in the first Black Ops. I have a feeling that even though BO2 will have a similar (but improved engine) to MW3 the weapons and weapon systems will be far different, as has been shown through the gameplay so far. Hopefully BO2 doesn’t have the same peashooter guns as BO1, but is more balanced than MW2, and at least as balanced as MW3.

        i was kinda mad about the type 95 until i read your comment and remember that in mw2 the famas was burst and in black ops it was fully automatic….. thank you for reminding me of this lol

      Video game guns are just stats with a skin, reload and fire animations. They don’t have to be the same from game to game. IW could switch the stats from the M16 to the Type 95 in a patch if they wanted to…

    • incubusman421

      It’s about damned time that COD changed itself and got off the old formula. People have been begging for change, now they have it!
