Michael Condrey has posted on Twitter an image of the Advanced Warfare MP private match lobby screen and has shown off a new solider customization. From the image, we can see that he is using a riot shield that’s customized in a pretty neat way. In the image, he has also shown a small peak at a new multiplayer map loading screen called “Greenband.”

    Looks more like assault shield than riot shield so that’s good.

  • jordanxbrookes

    Greenband seems to be a shopping mall, and with a lot of floors to explore. I can definitely see Hardpoint and Search and Destroy being great for this map. Also notice Condrey’s green GamerTag, *COUGH* HACKER! *COUGH* ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

      If your gamertag is ^(num from 0-9) it’ll color everything related to that color code after it. So like ^0 is black if my gamertag was 1337^0n00b 1337 would be default color and n00b would be in black chars. Unless they were you know to disable color codes in names ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

    • Possibly 2nd? The two swords suggest that, but that’s just my guess

  • Why a Riot Shield though. We already have the Exo Shield. I felt that was a great balance and then they did this. Not a fan of riot shields, but the Exo shield was/is a great idea.

    • You can easily jump or dash and shoot them in the back.

      • Hmmm. I suppose you’re right. Then it would seem absolutely pointless for them to put this in the game.

        • Yeah but then again they haven’t been very effective in the older cods either. It’s just a gimmicky thing some people use for fun 😛

          • Well if you remember in BO2 it was never fun because people could plant it, camp behind it and use LMGS target finders. I expect it to be balanced though.

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            It was fun for me. I never planted it, I just ran around bashing people. Lol if you kill them with a shield, they get so pissed.. Good times.

    • jordanxbrookes

      I agree, it’s just going to cause a nuisance to everyone.

      • Auptyk

        Riot shielders are just free kills…

        • jordanxbrookes

          At least there isn’t any C4 in this game, otherwise the game would have a big flaw in it.

          • Well in a way the Semtex is now what it really is, detonatable grenade. So it’s sorta there.

          • jordanxbrookes

            Yeah, I actually just did a recording and mentioned about that acting like the C4.

          • Cool, I’ll check it out.

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            I could use the C4 against the Riot Shielders. 🙁 I’m glad C4 is gone, but if they’re going to take out C4, then it’s illogical to put in Riot Shields when Exos are in the game.

          • grenades can be used the same way though i think i luv c4 so im gunna miss it

          • HenryDF

            To be honest, I’d rather have C4 than some sort of proximity explosive. If anything promotes camping or a trolly playstyle, it’s proximity explosives.

        • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

          Not with normal weapons. They’re annoying. I probably just suck, but meh.

      • fires

        Why hating Jordan? ;-; I’m happy this is a proper game with a shield, blops2 shield has no explosive protection and was only deploy candy, and ghosts made shield users look like c4 noobs… I’m happy I can smash faces again, assuming the shield isn’t garbage

        • jordanxbrookes

          Because people use the Shield for the wrong reasons. I’ve never come across a problem with it until Black Ops 2.

          • satish pydikondala

            well you never know jordan but the riot shield might be that moving shield they showed us on campaign reveal

          • guest

            What’s going on troops Jordan here

          • jordanxbrookes

            Actually it’s “How’s it going troops? Jordan here…”. Gosh, get it right 😉

      • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

        I was really iffy when I scrolled through the articles and saw the Riot Shield. It’ll cause so many problems.

    • Michael

      Well think of it this way, no more c4 spam with the riot shield so i guess thats good right? 😀

      • I believe the riot shield is deployable so we’re half way there. Lol, but yeah. No C4 spam will be amazing.

        • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

          Oh no it’s deployable? We’re screwed. 🙁

    New Map, New prestige symbol or rank icon? Riot Shield and possibly gold camo?

  • Well at least the map doesn’t start with an R

  • Baldmanz_RAGE

    Probably for the non exo suit playlists I would imagine. The Worm will be happy!!

    • what is for the playlist?

      • Baldmanz_RAGE

        Riot shield.

  • Another Prestige Emblem. Possibly #2?

    • Butthole lover

      Notice how he didn’t reply about the zombies?
      I think the could make it work.
      4 new people, upgrade your exo through out the map. PaP Lazer gun?!? Green lazers bitch.
      I really think it’s a possibility. And I the exos can set a new dynamic.
      Treyarch has been working closely with them. They could easter eggs that tie into Black ops 2.

      • He doesn’t want to say no to zombies. And he doesn’t want to say yes because the reveal is on wednesday. But dinosaurs isn’t very expected so he can tell us straight away it won’t be dinosaurs.

        • At this rate I’m sad to say it’s zombies, or the bio lab corpse things.

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            Why would you be sad to say it? I’d prefer a Zombies mode over anything else. Zombies is my definitive reason to buy it.

          • Zombies is stretched out and boring now. Bo2 killed it and made it super kid friendly.

            WAW had a sense of actual horror, and when you were in the higher rounds the zombies had deep voices so it sounded like a horde, not retarded children having tantrums. BO and BO2 tended to its audience and made the voices super high pitched, just like the terrible 6 year olds who fill it.

            BO had a sense of plot, a plot that made sense and had a lot more to it and a lot of them required skill, such as moon. Also, they made going to the moon make sense to the plot and the Easter egg didn’t feel forced and was mostly playable.

            BO2 Was all over the place and all the plots were terrible.
            Tranzit, I beleive I don’t even need to say anything about,

            MoD is so boring. You have to build that plane to have a chance, and when you do you’re stuck on a small area of a street and the only option is to kill yourself or play in a that small area until you do die. Seriously.

            Origins took out any sense of seriousness and said ” FUCK IT ” ( sorry Jordan ) and let’s get a bright blue zombie map full of getting stepped on by giant robots that do nothing but.. Step on you, every five seconds a Samantha cries to you non stop to free her and some super robot armor thing that can grapple you and down you in 3 hits ( WITH JUGGERNOG ) and let’s bring back the old characters and make them look silly, good idea, RIGHT?

            Also the whole map just absolutely forces you to get the staffs or do the egg, to the point of were the game is just another spec op mission with zombies in it. I could go on but I’m WAAAAY off subject.

          • From what your saying I could tell you did not do the Easter eggs on origins and mob of the dead because on mob of dead you can get back to the prison by sitting on the execution chair and on origins you can shoot at the foot if it has lights under it and teleport inside of it

          • CGkillZ

            Bo2 zombies blew. It forced you to do easter eggs. Bo1 did it perfectly if you didn’t want to do them it didn’t change shit. Bo2 basically to live past certain rounds you needed to do them or you were fucked. I didn’t like it. The maps weren’t as good. Plot was weird as shit. The walkers were frustating. They fucked up.

          • I agree Bo1 zombies is better than Bo2 but origins is the 2nd only to Der Riese

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            I like how they put in the old WaW maps, that brought a lot of value and reasoning to buy the Hardened Edition.

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            “Bo2 basically to live past certain rounds you needed to do them or you were fucked.”

            How? Most people don’t do the EE and still survive long. For MOTD, you don’t need to do the easter egg. You have a blundergat in the box. You don’t need a tomahawk, you can survive fine without it. Tranzit, the easter egg was pointless. Die Rise, the easter egg was also pointless, because you can get all the perks without doing the easter egg. Buried, the only time you would do a part of the easter egg was if you wanted more than 4 perks. You could survive with only 4 if you wanted to. And Origins, you don’t have to get the staffs. You can survive with 4 perks and normal or PAP’d guns. You’re never forced to do the easter egg.

            The plot was shit though, except MOTD, which was very interesting if you understood it.

          • The only map I really didn’t care for was die rise, when I first saw the trailers I thought it was going to be one of the best when I played it IMO I think it’s the worst zombie map of all time

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            Yeah, it’s really boring. Especially having to wait for elevators.

          • MichiganerE

            Actually – for Buried – I think I bought over 4 perks without doing the EE.

          • CGkillZ

            It’s just my opinion I always felt that when I played origins. You had to make the staffs or ot was boring. I guess that’s what I meant that if you didn’t do them it made the map somewhat boring. And you had to hear rictofen bitch lol.

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            BO2’s Zombies maps, imo, were the most fun out of the other maps. I could play multiple rounds of Buried and Mob of the Dead. They were just so well-made.

          • I did do the origins Easter egg. In fact I have every bo2 achievement unlocked. There is nothing to the inside of it but staff parts, which categorize into the Easter egg. I didn’t do MotD I admit, because I was just so quickly bored of it I played about 3 games of it before I never touched it again.

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            Well, sometimes you need to have the mojo to play it (or just having that feeling that you want to play it). MotD requires strategy. Sometimes you need to plan out what you want to do on the map beforehand. You can actually do every single Easter egg on round 4 if you wanted to (solo/2 players, of course).

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            First off, let me say I agree with you to an extent. I think Zombies wasn’t as good in BO2 than it was in WAW and BO. The story in BO2 sucked, those new characters sucked, and some of the maps sucked.

            TranZit sucked, I agree. They had some good ideas, but it was executed poorly. The new characters introduced on that map were terrible. The map was split up into 5 small areas, and the only way to get around was by the bus, trying to teleport over and over, or jumping through lava, running through fog, and dealing with those denizens.

            I must also admit, I didn’t like Die Rise. I liked the idea of the free perk, but it was way to troll friendly if you played with other people. Die Rise was a good solo map, but it sucked major ass if you played with other people.

            MOTD imo was not boring, and had the best storyline out of all of the BO2 zombie maps. Sure it was easy, but it was still fun up until round 30. The plane is not a challenge to build. Whether you’re playing solo or with a team, you could build it within a round, without having to even save a zombie. The only flaw with this map was how easy it was. But I enjoyed it nonetheless, it was a fun map to just sit back, relax, and not stress about dying all the time. The bridge didn’t force you to kill yourself, it was an option to go back. I liked the afterlife idea, it was pretty cool. It reminded me of Kino Der Toten. It even had that grim atmosphere that the other BO2 maps didn’t have, however, I blame the kid-friendly designs of the other maps on the overall BO2 game design compared to WAW and BO. Only difference was it was larger and you had to build the plane, whereas Kino, you just had to link the teleporter and it was much smaller.

            The only reason I didn’t enjoy Buried as much was because of the bank. Imo, the bank ruined that map. Instead of people working together and progressing through the map slowly, everyone ran to the bank, opened everything, and bought everything by round 3. Overall, it was a decent map. I liked it, even though it was also easy.

            And Origins, which was my favorite map of the bunch. The map would have been incredibly easy if it wasn’t for the mud. I know nobody likes the mud, but once you know how to navigate it, it’s not a problem. The mud and the robots added a sense of danger, and you had to always look out what you were doing instead of mindlessly training. It got rid of so many train spots that would have made the map super easy. As for “Being forced to build the staffs,” No, you’re not forced. I’ve played games where I didn’t build the staffs. It’s still possible to do good without a staff if you know what you’re doing. The robots even have a counter, the golden helmet, which protects you.

            TL;DR: Anyways, I’m also way off topic. Pretty much the BO2 maps were pretty good. If you didn’t like what Treyarch did, you should want SH to do Zombies, that way they show a different aspect of it that may be better than Treyarch’s.

          • HypeeZGb

            Agreed although, i think zombies wasn’t all that good on BO, better on BO2 and the easter eggs made the DLC worth while. If SHG has immplimented zombies then it would be cool but, i think Treyarch should carry on helming zombies as they are the creators and the developers who are the biggest name in zombie games IMO 🙂

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            Like you said, the Zombies team has been going downhill since WAW. So Zombies, or a gamemode similar to zombies, would give a fresh take on the gamemode, just like how the campaign team made MOTD and Origins.

          • HypeeZGb

            Agreed completely mate, just hope AW and SHG lets us down, if so then i will give up on CoD, I know them losing one buyer doesnt mean shit but, it will all start adding up if CoD is not sorted out by the time Ghosts 2 (if it happens – hope not) is released.

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            I’ve heard people say that Zombies is now over with on Treyarch CoDs.

          • HypeeZGb

            Zombies will not stop, too much of a money maker, if they stop zombies they may aswell go ahead and cut SHG put fully as like 70% of cod fans including myself will decide whether to buy next game, on the co-op mode and with treyarchs titles, i always have a yes ready before the release date lol, zombies is too popular and makes too much money to stop it ?

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            I heard that Origins was the end of Zombies. They could still continue with the Tranzit characters, I guess?

          • HypeeZGb

            Told you zombies wouldnt stop looooool

          • I want SH to do something of there own idea, dinosaurs was a good idea and some of the ai could of been used from the dogs. Or aleast vehicles. Just enough of the old. It’s a step back. I can agree with most of what you’re saying, Motd was really dark with all the corpses and I never really played it, so that was on me. I only saw it when my brother was playing it and saw the sign with the chairs and after life was a really good idea done well. Origins still has the unessacary generators and to get to PaP you have to deal with the boring generator gimmick.

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            I liked the generators, they were better than a power switch, as they kept you busy instead of training round after round. In fact, even when that annoying thing happened where they take the gens back, they gave you a free max ammo when you stopped them. I might be in the minority, but I hate the idea of dinosaurs. At least aliens was a plausible thing, dinosaurs just seems so silly to me.

          • Well we recently had the university of Liverpool revive a Dino species using its relative DNA: the ostrich. Look it up. It would be plausible for there to be Dino’s 44 years in the future.

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            Not saying it’s implausible to actually happen, I meant implausible to work as a gamemode. I wouldn’t play it that much.

          • Raptors are considered as natures most efficient hunters. They use teamwork and stealth for their kills. Instead of a brainless horde mode like extinction it could be a back and forth battle of wits. Using teamwork to hunt then out of their hidey holes. It could see it being fun. With the addition of the Exo to match their speed and agility.

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            How would that take wits? And if it did, how would the raptors fight back? They’re AI. Unless they did something like Evolve, where one person plays as the enemy, that wouldn’t work very well.

          • Battle of wits is just a figure of speech. As fir the AI, they would be smart if your sprinting it making lots of noise, depending on your proximity to them they’d try to stay out of sight, say hide behind trees, in bushes, in little rat tunnel and so forth, or start running closer to your location and strike when your back is turned. Or when they’re spotted. They’d use their teeth or claws for attacks. Say 3 hits and your down. Now with 15 Dino’s running about, either rushing you or playing it safe, it would create lots of tension as you’re sweeping the map. Not all of them will hide of course so there will be a degree of action as well as horror and suspense elements. Idk I was just making this up on the spot.

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            I guess that could work, but I still wouldn’t really play it. Idk.

          • Wonderful idea. Maybe it would be an escape mission were you eventually escape by helicopter evac and you get to use mini guns at fight a T. rex while you escape too.

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            I would prefer an Order 1886-like mode, if it wasn’t Zombies. Not in the sense of Werewolves or whatever, but half-breeds.

          • that’s the jurassic park raptors, these are the real raptors:http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/c/cd/Velociraptor_dinoguy2.jpg

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            Pretty creatures, aren’t they? And extinct, too.

          • Velociraptor *

          • I.m.o it felt clunky. Pay money to sit in a corner for 5 minutes while Magic blue knight zombies come and try to kill you along with normal zombies. I’m not sure but I think if you did it successfully you got your points back but I really didn’t like it. MAbey someone can confirm you

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            Well you couldn’t sit in a corner, because they would kill you, and it took a maximum of like 30 – 45 seconds if you did it by yourself, depending on how many people were in the lobby. Solo, it took like 5 seconds. When you complete it, you get points back +100 extra for your troubles. By doing all 6, you get a free max ammo from the box. And when the guys come to take it back, they also drop a max ammo. So yeah, it was pretty fair for the 30 seconds of my trouble.

          • Well it was a exaggeration, you can’t really sit in a corner in any map other than buried. Personally, I don’t remeber getting any max ammos in the game when I did it. Whatever, I do like your points and they are all very good, but imo I will probably never enjoy bo2 zombies an I enjoy planning out tactics and what stuff to buy and going to the highest rounds on survival with my brother

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            Yeah, BO2 did need more survival maps. That was my problem with it.

          • Peyton Barnes

            i dont think there will be zombies my friend the whole game is about innovating and zombies arent innovating

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            They put in multiple things from BO2, so there’s some unoriginal content. Co-Op isn’t about innovation, it’s about mindless fun.

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            Dinosaurs are way too unoriginal. They’d probably mix a couple of Horror-based monsters, but I’d prefer Zombies/Necromorphs over anything. There’s just that feeling of accomplishment when you get to higher and higher rounds.

          • Horror isn’t cod’s thing anymore. Last time I remeber any sort of horror was jumpscare with a dead body in bo2.

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            But it’s Sledgehammer’s thing with Dead Space, and it worked very well. AND, you’re wrong. A SP mission has some horrific things in it.

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            I think they sort of took out the focus on the story for a more fun gameplay experience full of crazy weapons. BO2 gave people more reasons to explore the levels than the other games.

            When I play Buried, I play it on Split Screen, that way the Bank never works, it’s just there during that one game.

            SH made Dead Space, so they could easily make a Zombies-infested horrifying Co-Op Mode.

          • Daniel

            1 Origins

            Origins, Der Riese, Kino, Ascension, Verrukt. That’s my list.

          • FINALLY SOMEONE GETS IT! thank you moo cow

          • innovation can do things my friend.

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            Lots of people were complaining about the Easter Eggs on Black Ops 2. Yeah, it’s silly to collect parts around the map just to upgrade your weapons. Yeah, it’s silly to have to go through a Mansion of horrifying ghosts to get to a tedious, narrow maze just to upgrade your weapon. Yes, Tranzit isn’t all that great. But, I would prefer these things over a stupid Survival Mode against humans on random MP maps with no objective or reason to play it (but it could be improved). I don’t want to play Spec Ops because all they really are are just already-existing downgraded Campaign missions that become repetitive. In Zombies, you have a goal.

            I disagree, because the Zombies in BO2 are copy and paste of the World at War Verruckt Zombies’ voices. And even if there are stupid Easter Eggs in the game, there are still always the cool weapons to use. There’s no Tommy Gun, Death Machine, Blundergat, Ray Gun, Parylizer, etc. in other Co-Op modes. Zombies is unique and fun, and that’s why people liked it. I’d prefer Mob of the Dead, Buried, and Origins over rehashed Campaign/Multiplayer levels with no incentive full of linearity and repetition.

          • The whole upper chunk is a big opinion and a lot of the fan base is wanting something new. Dinosaurs isn’t ” unoriginal ” tell me the most recent game were dinosaurs play a big part. Zombies is played out allready with dead island 2 and that other parkour zombie game ( I’m sorry, I just don’t remember it, I think it was dying light, or something.) and day Z is still prelevant, also doom 4 has PLENTY of zombies.

            Zombies is really dried out, we need something new. Mabey they could use the human things in bio lab with Exo skeletons and they had super powers or something. Just ANYTHING. SH has taken enough from treyarch.

            /endrant

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            Dinosaurs are an unoriginal, overdone concept in-general. If I wanted to play against dinosaurs, then I’d play Turok. I don’t see the appeal nor the fun factor behind dinosaurs. The closest thing to dinosaurs that we have, are cryptids, and Extinction was pretty terrible imo. Zombies are quite played out, but that doesn’t mean that SH should just put in dinosaurs for whatever reason. Prehistory and Futurism do NOT work imo. Zombies are familiar to Call of Duty and are a fan favorite. Whenever me and my family sees Zombies in a CoD game, we jump right on it and buy the CoD no matter what. I’m sure that’s the same for others, as well. If dinosaurs WERE in the game? Well, I wouldn’t be “disappointed”, I’d just be skeptical. Then again, they could change Zombies and make it their own. They could make it more Horror-based like Dead Space, or more Arcadey like on Treyarch games. But me, as a CoD fan, would prefer Zombies over Dinosaurs.

            I don’t think we need an entirely new Co-Op mode. They don’t need to innovate the Co-Op mode, they need to make it FUN and replayable. Zombies gives that and more. Plus, as I said, Zombies are a fan favorite, and would be an insta-buy for many people. The Biolab idea isn’t so bad, but that would lean closer to Survival on MW3, and I wouldn’t like that idea (but would fit the game).

          • Daniel

            Origins is the best map ever made and the mind blowing ending was terrific and explained everything and left a cliffhanger
            MotD is one of the best too.
            You are right about the rest

      • Michael

        we’ll be fighting alligators with exo upgrades!

        • Alligator butthole

          Mmmm

          • DopeAap

            lol

          • Oh my God I love Charlie intel

        • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

          Alligator-Human hybrids? I could see it working.

          • Michael

            Ya see…. ?? bro fist!

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            Experiments gone wrong – like in the Biolabs. Genetic mutations. Has the proportion and anatomy of a human, but the snout, scales, and maybe even eyes of an alligator. Hmm…

          • Michael

            Basically the lizard from “the amazing Spider-Man 2” the villain in the movie would turn into a sewer lizard cause he would inject venom in him or something. It’s something, but at the moment it’s plausable ?

      • Grenada!

        It’s not going to be zombies. It’s Treyarchs thing and SHG wants to do something different, so it’s not going to be zombies. So many people are getting hyped up that it could be zombies, and they are only going to be disappointed. Now it could be something really similar to zombies but it won’t be zombies.

        • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

          SH put in the Pick 10 system and added unto it, so they could easily do the same thing with Zombies. They know for a fact that if it weren’t Zombies, the entire community would be disappointed. Let’s look at our choices; disappointment, or a boring, repetitive mode with no incentive on playing it. I’m not a fan of those options.

          Look at it this way; Co-Op just needs to be mindless fun, they don’t need to innovate with it like they would with the other metagames. I’d prefer if it utterly obliterated Extinction. It doesn’t HAVE to be Zombies, but it needs to be just as fun and has to have a narrative to the point where AW and BO’s Co-Op modes can be compared.

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            Yeah, I don’t get why everyone’s so big on innovation. I don’t want innovation, I want fun.

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            Well, I’m mixed on it.

            I want a revolutionary SP and MP for the franchise, but not the genre, whilst it still being fun and not broken at all. With deployable Riot Shields, Quickscoping, and the flying drone, I’m questioning some things.

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            I know, but too much innovation could be bad. And for some reason, everyone wants innovation all the time. AW did it right, it looks fun and it is pretty innovative. But when I look at a COD game, I won’t buy it just because it’s innovative, ya know? It’s a buzzword that everyone likes, apparently.

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            The more, the merrier.

            However, games had their peak of innovation in the early days of gaming. Now, games just need to be fun and unique in their own right.

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            It’s hard to be unique nowadays though. Everything has been done before.

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            Right? But what AW does do to revolutionize the franchise, are the multiple combinations of movement and metagame.

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            Exactly. And it’s not per se innovative, since other games have done it, but they did incorporate it in a different way to create a fun, unique experience that other games do not have.

          • Grenada!

            Adding pick 10 into a game and adding a whole co-op mode into the game is a completely different thing lol. What actually makes people think it will be zombies anyway? I mean there hasn’t been any clues or anything but yet people are overhyping the shit out of that it’s going to be zombies. You said if its not zombies then everyone will be disappointed? Then it seems everyone is going to be disappointed.

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            It cannot be confirmed nor denied. It could be a Co-Op with a bunch of Nicki Minajes twerking on you. That has as much validity as Zombies at this point. But I’m just saying that if it isn’t new and/or Zombies, then people wouldn’t like it as much, since we’re used to it.

      • Cant you read?

        The guy asked if it would have zombie dinosaurs, not zombies or dinosaurs, can’t people read and it won’t be zombies anyway.

        • Piss_Of_Please

          Actually he just said no dinosaurs…

          • Are you stupid?

            Yeah, meaning that there won’t be any types of dinosaurs, so that means there won’t be zombie dinosaurs or normal or whatever the fuck kind of dinos. Lawd have mercy, can’t people understand things? You know what, so many people are hyped up that the co-op mode is zombies and I’m not going to even try anymore to try and get them to understand it wont be. Have fun being disappointed peeps.

        • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

          That isn’t confirmed.

      • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

        That’s a good find.

    • I’m almost certain that’s just the level 50 badge. (none prestige).

      • I think they would have the original star emblems..

        • Fair points.

          But it’s not a prestige emblem.

          It just isn’t.

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            *Maybe* they could do Private Match-exclusive emblems? Doubt it.

          • What’s the point in that?

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            What’s the point of charging $2 for a camo that doesn’t cost a penny to make?

          • That’s steering off the subject, but I do agree.

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            It was a stupid idea that there would ever be PM-only ranks but you never know lol.

      • jordanxbrookes

        If it was, it would be the classic 5-star Commander.

        • derrrrrrrrrrrrr

          I wish 🙂

        • Doesnt have to be, since we aren’t really playing as soldiers anymore. I doubt Atlas would have the same ranks and emblems as the American military. The character customization isn’t called “create-an-operator” for nothing 🙂

          I could be wrong though

    • Dan

      I think it is the second prestige

  • This is called the “Heavy Shield”. And yes, you can deploy it.

    http://www.theadvancedwarfare.com/aw/weapons-list/specials/

    • jordanxbrookes

      I can already see a major flaw, just like the Assault Shield/LMG/Target Finder combo in Black Ops 2.

      • Oh no 🙁

        • jordanxbrookes

          WE’RE DOOMED ALEX, DOOMED!!

          • I can already see a counter to that flaw: Walk to the side of the person and shoot.

          • fires

            Why does everyone hate the shield, best support weapon. Besides deployable ones, THAT DONY ABSORB EXPLOSIVES! damn blops2 making me think I don’t need flak jacket.

      • Guest 601

        Shield might act like the mobile barricade from the campaign.

      • MeisseN

        How is that a major flaw when everything is legit in this build. Not to mention it’s so easily countered. Get a sniper rifle and the nooby piece of shit behind that shield will be a free headshot.

        • jordanxbrookes

          Because you can plant it in the ground and use it as a portable head-glitch, and if you can’t get out of the spawn because there are multiple enemies doing this, then it’s a major flaw.

      • Suu

        “It all depends if you can place the shield down, if that haven’t already revealed that.”
        ; u;

  • Super Elite Exo thanks to CampyElite!

  • Anybody thought this could be little op? You basically have 4 different equipment in one, you just have to cycle through them which doesn’t take long… This would definitely be the best one for SnD
    http://i.gyazo.com/3d1b9a997ebbafe7bc5d34844f8b257f.png

    • Michael

      I’m pretty sure you can only use the variable grenade once per life like a grenade for example. I don’t think scavenger re-replenishes explosives for you in this game so you’d have to choose wisely before throwing whatever grenade choice you want. Its probably not OP as you’d think.

      • Well if scavenger doesn’t return it, idk yet

    • Sagar Trika

      Downside to this is that it takes longer to prime and throw compared to just the base grenades. Believe Condrey specified this a few weeks ago on Twitter.

    • Siftblade of Rivia

      Nah. It does sorta take long. When you switch the types, you’re pretty much defenseless. The only time it’s useful is if you switch it to what you want before you get into a gunfight. They showed it off in gameplay already, it didn’t seem OP.

      • And that’s exactly what you can do in search.

        • Siftblade of Rivia

          That’s not OP in search. It’s basically like instead of having different classes with different grenades, you can do this.

        • MeisseN

          Yeah always gonna switch to Threat to counter these camping babies in Camp and Destroy.

    • The7Reaper

      None of them are lethal just EMP, Threat, Stun and Smoke no frags of semtex so not too bad but will probably be a nuisance

    • I’m sure they have a way to balance it :p

    • GodLikeLeftNut

      takes up two slots i think

    • reminds me of the stun grenade from the Dredd movie

  • OPIE NUKEZ

    MichaelCondrey is the real MVP!

  • Eww is that a bo2 style portable head glitch riot shield?

    • GodLikeLeftNut

      here comes LMG’s and wall banging

  • I hope I get to have modifiable perks like in BO. Nothing more fun than running super fast in nuke town in a full blown no scope-off with pin point accurate sniper rifles.

    • I know right! I would looove them to return, nice to see someone else misses them too.

    • jordanxbrookes

      Black Ops Private Matches, back in the day 🙂

      • Tep Kok

        If “back in the day” for you is 2010, you’re painfully underage.

        • jordanxbrookes

          So 17 is painfully underage? Ok.

          • #rekt

          • GodLikeLeftNut

            enjoy being young while you can. it goes quick.

    • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

      THAT WOULD BE AMAZING.

  • AcePhoenix007

    I really hope custom games will be easy to play in private matches.

  • James Veach

    You can have more than 18 players in private match!!!???

    • It says “recommended” but it actually means the max player count.

  • Carsten

    Hopefully Bots will be returning. The bot options might be under the “Game Setup” tab.

    • Plot Twist: You Are The Bot! Mwahahahaha

    • Condrey said there will be a combat readiness program with bots

      • Autocorrect

        That will be like combat training most likely. We want private match bots that u can choose the difficulty and quantity of. Come on Condrey, confirm PM Bots!!!!!!!!

      • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

        I want PM Bots, too.

    • Jesse

      I am really hoping for the Private Match bots to still be there as well. Love to play full 9 vs 9 matches with Veteran bots on the Xbox One version of Ghosts. It was the reason I got the Season Pass in Ghosts and if we can do the
      huge bots matches in Advanced Warfare as well than I will definately get
      the Season Pass again!

      • Carsten

        Playing with my two brothers against a team of just hardened bots on Black Ops II is the best for me. Bots or not, I’m getting the digital edition/season pass for this game.

  • Michael

    Hope 360 supports 18 players.

    • Xecho

      prob wont

      • Michael

        Have faith, have faith

        • Xecho

            Battlefield 4 can only hold 32 players on Xbox 360 and PS3, but can hold 64 players on PC, Xbox One and PS4.

            *24 players on 360 and ps3

          • Xecho

    • MeisseN

      The 18 player count is recommended and max … 🙂

  • Name

    mouth is watering slightly, because of the camo…

  • MassiveChaos347

    is there no bots???

    • jordanxbrookes

      There is in the Combat Readiness Program.

      • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

        I would also like bots in PM just to have that feature, y’know? The more features, the better.

        • Jesse

          Agreed. Asked Condrey about it many times on Twitter and have yet to recieve an answer. Seriously if we cant play with bots in the Private Matches like we could in Black Ops II and Ghosts than that would be a serious step backwards for the series!

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            Agreed. Again, it’s just nice to have a feature where I can play with my family instead of raging at 12 year olds playing alone.

        • jordanxbrookes

          Bots are there so you can try and do better in-game, such as improve accuracy, improve spawn knowledge etc. Private Match is more for having fun with friends or competing in GBs. Until we get confirmation on bots being in PM, the CRP is what you want.

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            Well, bots were in Private Matches on BO games.

      • MassiveChaos347

        oh ok thanks 😀

    • J4MES

      Only confirmed in the Combat Readiness mode which pits you against bots and other real life players where killcams are scoring are disabled. Hopefully they’ll also include LAN offline modes with full bot and match customisation just for practice and pissing about!

  • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

    Dammit. Why do they keep putting these damn shields in the game? It’s already an Exo Ability. Oh well, can’t be mad, at least we got some news.

    NEW MAP REVEALED NIIIICE!!!!

  • Guest

    Prestige emblem tho because level 50 is 5 stars

  • LovekillerX

    I think that we will see one more map reveal at some point. That map looks a little bit weird but who knows how it turns out.

  • J4MES

    I think Greenband will be shown on IGN First tomorrow..

    We’ve seen 6 maps showcased, two more in the trailer and Atlas Gorge plus this one. Hope Sledgehammer don’t go leaking absolutely everything prior to release though!

  • Grigori

    The background reminds me of the coop leak!

    • Guywithbrains

      I think that blurred image was from the co-op lobby. Basically it means that the blurred image was from the background. Although we still don’t know about co-op mode’s name much, but rumors tell it starts with ‘E’ and ends to ‘L’. 😛

  • SH must have a shield fetish. There is the Exo shield, Heavy sheild, mobile sheild and the deployable cloth like shield.
    Oh and can’t forget, the car door sheild.

    Call of duty: Advanced shields.

    • jooker-jr

      And don’t forget : THE EPIC COW SHIELD.

      • I pre ordered the game for the gold one.

  • This definitely is AW’s take on the Assault Shield. I guess we’ll see the portable head glitch return.

  • The map looks like a museum with animal’s bones hanging from the roof 😛

  • IKnowItAll

    Completely fake picture

    • Definitely. Can’t believe a Studio head would put out a fake picture of his own game! Lmao

    • Juses

      I agree they are sooo fake

  • What’s the usual time for IGN first? Is it in 2 hours or 3?

    • J4MES

      5PM GMT and it’s just gone 5 now in the UK and there’s nothing on IGN so I don’t think we’ll see anything today sadly. It’ll be tomorrow probably – 5PM UK and 9AM US time.

    • Guywithbrains

      Finland time 7pm tomorrow I think. 😛

      • Finland time zone is GMT+3 right? But J4MES just said 5pm GMT so it’d be 8pm in our time… Time zones confuse the crap out of me.

        • Guywithbrains

          Well I converted time to Finland Helsinki time and it showed 7pm when it is 5pm GMT

        • J4MES

          Bascially 24 hours; it’ll be IGN First on IGN for you – what time is it where you are now?

          • 19:00/7pm

          • Guywithbrains

            What J4MES said ^^

          • J4MES

            Cool, so that will be 7pm for you tomorrow for IGN First;-)

          • Yeah thanks, but I was just confused because of the gmt+3

          • Guywithbrains

            I think we are getting new map reveal tomorrow (that map seen above)

          • I don’t want them to show everything though… I just want a small tease of the co-op! When the game is out there is nothing new to discover with this speed 🙁

          • Guywithbrains

            Agreed.

            Monday: IGN First Greenband map reveal
            Tuesday: Co-op trailer
            Wednesday: IGN First actual multi-minute co-op gameplay

            That seems logical.

          • J4MES

            Yep, at this rate; all the maps will be leaked before even October. We’ve had 6 leaked, seen two more in the MP trailer and already know Atlas Gorge plus Greenband taking the total to 10 maps known. Unless there’s 20 maps in the game; I think they’re giving too much away so I hope it’s just Greenband gameplay and then co-op for next week.

          • Guywithbrains

            We still haven’t seen for example the map where it says “Detroit Metropolitan” on the wall. I am thinking what kind of maps they have to offer but so far every single map have been good. Not a single bad map (based on how they look).

            I really hope they don’t show anymore maps after Greenband. It would be nice to discover some maps by ourselves.

        • Siftblade of Rivia

          They reveal it at 9 AM PST. So it would be 7 PM Finland.

  • jooker-jr

    am I the only one how wants the single-player HUD in multiplayer?

    • That’s what I was expecting when they first talked about it a few months back. Would have been really cool

    • GodLikeLeftNut

      same, was pretty disappointed that wasnt in MP

  • Epicsand

    I think the co-op mode will be virtual reality, like the firing range and lobby.

  • Grenada!

    Why does everyone think it’s going to be zombies? It’s not going to be zombies so stop saying it. Treyarch has Zombies, IW has Survival/Extinction and SHG will have something new and different. So stop saying it’s going to be zombies. SHG has said they want to create something new with CoD and put their taste into AW. IMO it will be the Bio Lab monsters or clones whatever they are but it’s not going to be zombies.

    • Juses

      yep i agree

    • GodLikeLeftNut

      yep so many people are going to be disappointed. i reckon its goign to be teddy bears

    • Xecho

      Because people are idiots. And are just wanting Treyarch so badly but they can’t see that SHG isn’t Treyarch.

    • Max Martinez

      Let us speculate.

    • J4MES

      Zombies is a powerful USP. There is no reason why the mode can’t be shared between trusted devs. Sledgehammer have already taken a lot of inspiration from Treyarch in terms of presentation and positives and the mode is a real seller for COD games. It could be but then again it could easily not be but I wouldn’t rule it out. We’ll see Wednesday.

  • Juses

    i hope advanced warfare hits 100k pre order on ps4 🙁

    • How does vgcharts stats even work?
      Is every coyntry listed?
      Is every possible shop and digital purchasing listed?

      If not, then it’s not the correct number. And what does the pre ordering numbers even have to do with anything? Ghosts is one of the best selling call of duty games ever, yet it’s considered as the worst one. And people have their own opinions. Again, think of popular music teenagers listen. Check the most popular songs in Spotify. I don’t know if I have to say much about it, they are horrible.

      If a game isn’t popular, it doesn’t mean it’s a bad game. Might be for some people, but then again some people love Ghosts.

      • Juses

        because the player base is going to be split up and theres not that many pre orders yet of ps4

  • NuttyTheSquirrel

    FUCKIGN SHIT, I NEED WEDNESDAY!!!!

    I know its off-topic but leave your suggestion.

    Ive been waiting for the digital pro edition for cod AW since a month and half for the ps store in UK/SA ( they are the same store) and they havent released it yet.

    Should I wait for the digital pro edition or get the normal edition ( they havent even changed it to the day zero edition) and buy destiny??

    • KuuGeeL

      digital you mean by downloading ? if so xbox one started a month ago by pre-loading with all of the DLC stuff, so digital edition for cod aw might be added before the game like a week or two and i think the same goes for PS4.

      • jooker-jr

        Unfortunately the digital pro edition is only avalibale in the US but not in the KSA/UK store.

        Instead we still have the old edition that comes withthe advanced arsenal only. 🙁

    Guys – hold the phone – Schofield said that Co-Op will have a TRAILER soon, but IGN is revealing a full gameplay. TRAILER EARLIER THAN THE GAMEPLAY? TOMORROW AT 12 PM?

    • TRAILER TODAY!?!

      Just in case somebody didn’t see it already

      Both Condrey and Schofield keep saying they THINK it’s awesome. Makes me think it isn’t a big co-op like extinction or zombies. I’m going full illuminati with my theories now.

      • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

        We’ll find out at noon.

        • 26 minutes for IGN first

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            Mhm. I hope it won’t be released on there, though. Then again, it could. But trailers in general get released at around noon, right?

          • Maybe a tiny tease

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            I’ma be pissed if it’s MP.

    Assault Shield is back? Well at least it’s the only thing that supports camping 🙂

    Wednesday: gameplay from co-op IGN First

      This same tweet is already below if you look. Still it is nice to know we might get that trailer soon. My guess is on Tuesday. 😉

      Although “more shortly”. It would be nice to get some tease before that actual reveal trailer.

        Oops… 😛

        Still excited. ALL ABOARD THE HYPE TRAIN

  • They seriously need to restore all the customizability to private match. Ghosts was seriously lacking.

    I would like to know more about bots. I have the feeling this “Combat Readiness Program” will be like Titanfall private match….min of 2 human players to start. 🙁 Or even worse, a whole team of human vs bots, so a whole team of human players required to start….just something bugging me about it.
