    Is it just me, or does Riot have the map design similar to Showdown from Call of Duty 4?

    • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

      It’s just you lol.

  • lolol

    Guessing everyone saw the sac3 or whatever looks like some type of vector is in AW.

  • This looks similar to the Type 25 from BO2. Never noticed that til now.

    • jordanxbrookes

      Of course it looks similar. That’s because it’s Black Ops 3 ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜€

      • Oh god. And Woods is still alive at the age of 130. Smh

        • jordanxbrookes

          Lol, Woods is a cyborg, cyborg co-op confirmed XD

          • Jamie McDonald

            Or he’s just a jar of ash the camera cuts to now and again….

      • MichiganerE

        And the Type 25 looked similar to the Type 95, and the Type 95 looked similar to the Famas. ( อกยฐ อœส– อกยฐ)

        • jordanxbrookes

          OH MA GOD!! THIS COULD ONLY MEAN ONE THING…

          SPACESHIPS CONFIRMED!!

        • Whoa

          Type 25 (one gun) Type 95 (another gun ) Famas (A third gun) in total 3 guns being mentioned so that means….
          Half Life 3 Confirmed!

          • MichiganerE

            Fuck yes! Oh wait… Valve still doesn’t know how to count to 3.

          • Whoa

            A secret source has informed me that they are now aware of a number existing after 2 but do not know what it is exactly. So we still have a good 2 years before the idea of starting production for the game begins.

          • MichiganerE

            2? More like 20.

        • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

          I don’t think it did.

          • MichiganerE

            Maybe.

        • NuttyTheSquirrel

          The Type 25 was the Type 95.

          And no. The Type 95 doesn’t look like the FAMAS.

          SHOTS FIRED!!!

          • MichiganerE

            Clearly you haven’t played MW2 then. Because the Type 95/25 replaced the weapon.

          • NuttyTheSquirrel

            What? WHAT?

            From all the CoDs, MW2 was the one that I most played. Not only that, but my first nuke was with the fucking FAMAS.

            I was talking about aesthetics and not the stats of those weapons. Not only that, but the Type 25 is automatic, how is that even comparable to the FAMAS on MW2?

            Just because CoD usually has AT LEAST one burst-fire weapon, doesn’t mean that it is replacing it. They need to change the weapons around a bit.

            Is the G11 replacing the FAMAS in Black Ops? No. It’s just another burst fire weapon…

          • MichiganerE

            Look at the MW2 Famas, then look at the MW3 Type 95, they both look similar in models. With every CoD since CoD 4, weapons have always replaced each other. The Type 95 was the replacement for the MW2 Famas, with the Type 25 being the replacement for the Type 95. Just like how the Scar-L replaced the Scar-H, and the M27 replaced the M4A1.

          • NuttyTheSquirrel

            The M27 has NOTHING to do with the M4A1. Not only that, but the files itself are named HK416 (don’t even know why, since the fucking gun isn’t the HK416).

            Not only that, but the M27 IAR is a based from the HK416, which by itself is based on the AR-15. Both Assault Rifles. But the M27 IAR isn’t even an Assault Rifle, but I’ll assume that in the future they made an Assault Rifle version of that (which in itself, also doesn’t make any logical sense, since there are the M16s, AR-15s, HK416s and so on.

            So they replaced a carbine that was an Assault Rifle in-game with an let’s say LMG that also was an Assault Rifle in-game. Ok.

            Let’s cut to the chase. Call of Duty players are already waiting for those gun styles. But they want the best of both worlds. They want the almost non-existent recoil on the M4A1 with the aesthetics of another weapon, but they still want them to look the similar. So the developers don’t have another choice but to change those models. It’s not a replacement since they pretty much HAVE to change the guns or every game would be a DLC.

            Every CoD has that burst-weapon. That low-recoil low ROF/damage. That RoF demon that kicks like a fucking mule. That low ROF with high damage and recoil. And that nearly forgotten single-fire rifle. That’s how it works. If we follow your train of thought, every gun is replacing some other gun.

          • MichiganerE

            When it comes down to one gun replacing another in a CoD game, I’m talking about the look of the models, not the build of it. For example, the M4A1 was going to be in BO2, but was replaced by the M27; therefore, M27 replaces the gun. MW2 had the Scar-H, then MW3 had the Scar-L; therefore, the Scar-L replaced the Scar-H. Do you see what I mean now?

          • NuttyTheSquirrel

            Yes, I always knew what you mean.

          • MichiganerE

            Well then…

    • damoenjohn

      It’s if like a type 25 and mp5k had a baby

    • Daniel

      MP5K

    • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

      It’s not the Type 25, I don’t think. We’ll see, though.

    • common sense

      If there is no dedicated servers for this game, the game is going to fail.

      • Primey_

        No it won’t fail.

  • MichiganerE

    I REALLY want this to be a good game. The last CoD game with good multiplayer was Black Ops 1. MW3 MP was average, BO2 MP was okay and Ghosts MP was bad.

    • Mmmmm Black Ops 1 was soooo good!

      • MichiganerE

        Yes!

      • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

        Meh.

    • jordanxbrookes

      Aaaah, back in the good ol’ days of Black Ops ๐Ÿ™‚

      • MichiganerE

        Yep, my third favorite CoD game right behind CoD 4 and MW2.

        • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

          Too many campers and overpowered perks, for my tastes.

          • MichiganerE

            1. BO1 doesn’t have too many campers
            2. The only over-powered perks were Ghost and Second Chance

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            It actually has a lot lol and Ghost and Second Chance are damn critical when you’re playing against them. Major problems. That’s why there were so many campers in the game.

          • MichiganerE

            There was the Express playlist where both perks were restricted.

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            I don’t think it exists anymore.

          • MichiganerE

            It’s a standard mode, so it still does.

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            Didn’t notice it. Hmm.

          • “it has a lot” which ones??

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            FAMAS, Ghost, Second Chance, campers, dual wielding, etc.

          • yes, all op, but I was not aware the famas. dual wielding and campers were perks? Interesting!

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            I meant lots of problems, are you stupid? Lol.

          • “Too many campers and overpowered perks, for my tastes”
            Nope, you said perks. And you said “major Problems” regarding ghost and last stand which, again, are perks.

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            You’re overcomplicating it lol. Fine. It has problems across the board that stopped it from being a great MP game.

          • X) sorry

          • yeah ghost was almost necessary unless you were really good, like I wasn’t too affected by that. But that game was a uav spam for sure. Seriously second chance was bullshit though. I was at a point from playing so so much where I’d shoot my pistol to let people know where I was, move tactically to a point where they would come try to kill me and Id just out gun everyone lol. Like, I got temporarily banned and got reset from “boosting” which was actually just me being too good. lmao. Sadly I’m kinda shitty at cod now, definitely a game where the more you play the better you are.

          • Carrisi

            Ignore him he just moans how bad every cod is constantly. Negative person

          • jordanxbrookes

            If it wasn’t for crappy hit detection and latency issues, I wouldn’t have so much of an issue with them.

          • MichiganerE

            YES!

        • spartanelite

          Cod 4 is nothing but nostalgia and mw2 is far more broken then ghost

          • MichiganerE

            Nope, CoD 4 is the best because of what it did for CoD and the FPS genre. MW2 may be broken, but it’s an insane amount of fun, something that Ghosts lacks.

          • spartanelite

            Mw2 is not fun at all.you die faster than you in ghost In that game the thing people mainly complain about in ghost, it’s not fun getting noob tubed, cross mapped by an smg, getting spawn kill by kill streaks instantly a second after you spawn is not fun, and Cod 4 is nostalgic but it is great not saying it’s not but it’s not my number 1 imo that was Bo1

          • no ttk is faster in ghosts.

          • MichiganerE

            Nope, you die faster in Ghosts. MW2 still manages to be very fun even with it’s many problems.

          • spartanelite

            What I meant by die faster is that 90% of things one shot you and how is instantly getting killed after respawning fun

          • MichiganerE

            The feeling of MW2 makes it fun.

          • yeah but cod 4 isn’t a good game anymore, its ultra out dated and irrelevant. so what makes it still cool is the nostalgia of the dawn of today’s multiplayer fps.

          • MichiganerE

            No shit it’s outdated, this happens to every game.

          • so people need to stop saying its the best cod. Because its not. its simply the most revolutionary cod.

          • MichiganerE

            That’s one of the reasons why it’s the best. Because it did the most for the franchise, while being simple and very fun.

          • ok

    • Ryumoau

      yep. Black Ops is still my favorite CoD and the one that i spent the most time on after school. I really wish i could get an HD remaster of it for ps4, but with maps from black ops 2 added in (but remodeled to look like they existed in the cold war era). :3

      • MichiganerE

        Yeah, with more players on every map, and NO Turbine or Aftermath.

      • Carrisi

        Cod 4 was the best but sounds like your a little young for that, BO1was great though

        • Cod 4 side by side is worse than B01, it was the shit when it came out though. I swore I’d never need another game to play ahahah.

    • Daniel

      BO1 best CoD ever

      • MichiganerE

        One of them for sure.

    • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

      BO1 MP was decent, MW3 MP was garbage, BO2 MP was atrocious, and Ghosts MP was a disease.

      • MichiganerE

        Decent means good, so you’re only agreeing with me.

        • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

          I WAS agreeing somewhat.

          • MichiganerE

            But you weren’t… But you were…

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            A little…

          • MichiganerE

            Maybe…

        • Carrisi

          Lol

          • MichiganerE

            Don’t you LOL at me! >:(

  • If i had a penny for every time Michael Condery said Verticality, I would be a millionaire

  • Ryumoau

    Awesome video! Thanks for posting it. ๐Ÿ˜€

  • TheGamerBeast

    god Developers for god’s sake talk about the PC version, i know some console owners will say who cares about PC, i say there are few people, just stay at our side PC gamers want a great game like console owners too

    • MichiganerE

      Be prepared for another Ghosts on PC. ๐Ÿ™

      • TheGamerBeast

        oh god don’t say that

        • MichiganerE

          Hey, I don’t want that to happen, but it probably will. Good optimization should be another thing they take from Treyarch.

          • TheGamerBeast

            we still don’t know, and maybe what i understand they always release the PC req after they finish or complete the game and test it out, and i have good hopes for SH, cz if they really listen to the community then they would’ve know that ghosts on PC was a big issue AKA SHIT

          • MichiganerE

            Hopefully, but like you said, who knows?

      • Freeze

        Please no

        • MichiganerE

          ๐Ÿ™

    • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

      CoD on PC is dead. Just buy the console version.

      • ben wills

        No.

        • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

          Yes. Enjoy a gimped version then lol not my problem.

  • MichiganerE

    Oh my god, I beat Jordan at the amount of comments on one article on Charlie Intel…

    Since hellspawn was proven fake, I guess its time for the next theory. *checks list*

    Prestige 3 emblem at 4:14?

    • elzorro

      You sure it’s not the typical 1st prestige emblem? Looks so simplistic like Ghosts :/

  • CreeperHunter

    in Australia there is only Atlas limited not atlas pro but the limited edtion is $109.95

    • Kobrah

      And I can’t even get that in Bundaberg :'(

  • KuuGeeL
    • kyr95

      Could be MP too. But who knows, right? ๐Ÿ˜‰

      • LovekillerX

        That could hint at something. But please remember don’t make the same mistake you guys did before! I mean that don’t get your hype too high.

        But hey have there been any achievements before in MP? Because I don’t really remember that I had any trophy in MP before… Where did we find these Extinction achievements?

        • kyr95

          I cant remember. And im not hyping it up, dont you worry.
          But 14 secret achievements? Thats a lot even for MP. Just saying.

          • LovekillerX

            But some people hype it too high and blame from it someone other than himself. But yeah 14 achievements for multiplayer sounds too much…

          • kyr95

            Bo2 mp had 5 achievements if i recall correctly.

          • LovekillerX

            Well we will see sooner or later. But hey imagine under a month and then our long wait is finally over!! ๐Ÿ™‚

          • kyr95

            Yep!
            Seems strange though…really suspicious ๐Ÿ˜€

          • LovekillerX

            Indeed. It would be a nice surprise if they put “another” co-op BUT I won’t believe it until they really confirm it.

          • kyr95

            Even if theres not another co-op, these achievements have to be either important to the campaign or MP.

          • LovekillerX

            Agreed. The campaign seems like it is going to blow up my mind with stunning graphics and even the actual story looks so promising. I can’t wait to get my hands on this game. I have waited it so long. ๐Ÿ˜€

          • justchill1234

            in cod ghosts there wasn’t any achievements for multiplayer if i recall and all the secret achievements were extinction. could be the same for AW. http://www.xboxachievements.com/game/call-of-duty-ghosts/achievements/

            maybe they made aw second coop ( if it exist) achievements secret because the mode can only be unlocked after playing campaign……..

      • Ryumoau

        i’m hoping theres no MP trophies, aside for maybe prestiging once. I’m not a big fan of online trophies. I’d rather most of those hidden trophies be related to single player.

  • J4MES
  • jooker-jr

    A little too late for sledeghammar.

    • Ryumoau

      yeah this feels like it should have been posted a week after the multiplayer reveal.

  • meow

    in theory the PC should be an easy optimise as next gen consoles are basicly PC’s

  • Josh

    At 53 seconds he confirmed the name of the jungle map as “Extinct”!!!

    • Max Martinez

      I think he said “Instinct”.

  • JaBoiKnoWs

    Guys I might be on to something here … On XBOX ONE, go to friends and then search for gamertag and type in 2 SHG MCondrey. On his profile (probably not his primary) you can see in the top right it says he’s played CoD: Advanced Warfare like 10 times in the last month (most of those being recent). Click on that, and you can see a bunch of different multiplayer stats as well as achievements. There was about 6-10 secret achievements (sorry I didn’t even think to count them) on the list. Could this mean they are hiding another game mode? I haven’t seen anyone else post about this so I figured I’d let everyone know, even though it could very well be nothing …
