By now we should all have seen the recently Black Ops 3 reveal, along with many unanswered questions.

Black Ops 3 is set to introduce a wave of changes, refinements and additions to the franchise and ultimately deliver the ‘Treyarch’ experience that many of us have come to expect. We recently caught up with MrDalekJD who had the opportunity to play Black Ops 3 for several hours at the Treyarch Studio.

Below is Part 2 (Part 1 here) of our group discussion where we explore some of the upcoming changes within Black Ops 3. In this episode, we focus on the “Glitch” ability which allows you to teleport backwards in time, Specialists and Skill Based Matchmaking.

Watch the talk below, and let us know what you think in the comments section. Be sure to SUBSCRIBEΒ to be ready for Part 3 where we discuss even more!

Thanks to: MrDalekJD, Wizzite, UnknownPlayer03 and BennyCentral for joining. Be sure to check them out.

    Well at least I can save myself from campers by using Glitch. However, I don’t know how balanced it is until I get to test it by myself.

    -failed becoming first-

    • Michael:GodOfEWN

      You’re always first. In your mind.

  • The7Reaper

    So glitch doesn’t sound as OP as everyone has been thinking either way game sounds funn

  • Xx_ThomesAnTennksweg_xX

    On most games this is just called lag.

    • EJ

      Glitch is the new lag compensation

  • Cosima McInnes

    I’ll be honest…. When I saw the trailer I rolled my eyes and turned it off after a minute but the info that has came out about specialist, gunsmith, create a camo , no toughness , gore returning etc etc has really got me interested and I’m looking forward to the beta to try this stuff out for myself. Im not really the biggest fan of treyarch call of duty’s because Infinity Ward is still (yes still) my favourite cod developers…. I just like the way they do things (sorry but not sorry).

    Guess I’m just being cautious πŸ˜‰

    • Daniel

      That’s okay, sugar. The reveal trailer sucked ass but the game will rock

      • ChickenDoughnut

        Sugar, really?

          Thats something matt murdock would say

        im cringing so hard

    • Show N Prove

      infinity ward is still my fav as well

      • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

        After ghosts? Lol.

      • Cosima McInnes

        They will redeem themselves with their next game ^_^

        I have a lot of faith in them because now they have had 3 years to make it ^_^

        • ScOott

          Yup it’s going to be good .. I’ve leaked a few things on this site allready ..

          • Cosima McInnes

            Such as ?

      • CrowReap .

        even though ghosts was hated by most people, I still enjoyed it for the entire year unlike aw. I have faith in IW for ghosts 2 plus a good campaign

        • jordanxbrookes

          I much rather see a Modern Warfare 4. I know the series is pretty much done and dusted, but I’m a sucker for Modern Warfare games. Just love ’em.

          • HypeeZGb

            Yes if developed by same people as COD4 and MW2 but it wont happen as the majority of them left so our dream are dead.

            I just loved COD4 my most favourite game ever.

        • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

          I don’t. Only buying Treyarch cods.

        • Diego Diniz

          I like Ghosts too…but only DLC Maps! Standard Maps are too big and no action…

      • Treyarch here.I guess MW3 was ok but Ghosts no, I could say that the old IW team was my fav tho

    • YouAreCreepy

      Why are you pretending to be a girl dude, that is really weird. Your profile picture is a singer named Jenna Mcdougall not you.

      • Cosima McInnes

        I am female … Well transgender but y’know. I’m only 4 months into the HRT so I still look like I want to kill myself.
        Don’t know who Jenna mcdoougall is but if you search Taylor Jardine I’m sure you will see that is who my dp is because I model myself after her and she is my idol and she has helped me throughout this strange and painful journey I have struggled with for over 7 years. Oh … And I have never ever claimed to be the person I am in my dp … I don’t do that shit. Sure people in the comments respond to me by flirting or saying nice things but I never respond to it. When I fully transition from male to female I will use my own dp but right now I’m not comfortable with myself just yet.

  • PuddingAuxRais1ns

    So just like AW?

  • Xx_ThomesAnTennksweg_xX

    Unrelated to this post, but will gore return in multiplayer like waw or just in campaign?

    • Daniel

      MP, campaign and Zombies

      • Xx_ThomesAnTennksweg_xX

        Cool thanks

    • Random

      Watched one of Drift0rs countless videos last night, and he mentions they’re having gore limited to the specialist abilities mainly. I think they’re having blood spray etc for all weapons, and stains on walls a la CS though.

  • Daniel

    Lag is now an ability LMAO
    Its like every single hack/fail got official in game I mean in hacked WaW lobbies you get too see exo jumps, dashes, ground slam, laser sights, super punches, target finders, select fire attachment for semi auto guns, lag
    All of it was officially implemented in the new CoDs lol soon hackers will get bored bc everything they could possibly mod is already in game
    Its all vondy’s fault lol XD I love that bald bastard so much

    • Drasadex

      Ahh, but combine a lag switch with this ability lmao

  • Ryumoau

    another great episode!! The Reaper’s glitch ability actually sounds really cool to me.

  • ScOott

    What kind of idiot thought you could die then teleport to not being dead …

    • Kobrah

      You have to use it before you die.

      • ScOott

        Yh I was confused I thought you could save them all up die ten times then teleport 10 times to give you no deaths… Thanks for clearing that up for me :-/

  • troubled

    Can we have this game before NOV people. I sold AW I could not take this thing anymore now I miss cod more than ever. #Releasebeforenov #fuckuAW

  • VVFZ

    I can’t wait till November. AW is boring and I can’t handle another 6 months of BO2 its a great game but I’m tired of it! Pls Treyarch I have no game to play.

  • Freeze
  • Drasadex

    Still think this ability is ridiculous.

    • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

      It’s alright. Not overpowered. Not weak.

      • idkwhatmynameis

        Have you found that quote yet or are you ducking me?

  • MurkN101

    Nice idea Vahn.

    • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

      Borrowed from over watch.

    • Michael:GodOfEWN

      Lmao

    • Static_Oz

      I’m a little concerned with the Specialist. I mean, sure it sounds like a great idea and I have no doubt it will be fun to use. But I’m just not sure if it belongs in a Call of Duty.

      We will have 9 Specialist by launch. And adding Specialist will change the game a lot! (Every 1-3 min. you will be getting a Abuity that I’m sure players will find a way to abuse or a Serious OP Weapon that other players will get tired of dying to.)

      In Destiny players only get their Special Ability/weapon evey 3-5 min. and It feels like I’m always losing a gun fight to someone with a Special Ability/Weapon. (it’s really hard to keep a streak going bc of this) And we all know how COD fans react to change. They hate the idea at first. Then I love it after seeing gameplay. But 6 months after launch the new factor has worn off, and most players can’t stand it anymore and miss their old COD.

      I hope this isn’t the case. I’m just skeptical when it comes to major change in a COD.

      • idkwhatmynameis

        Don’t worry bro. Its not like treyarch has a history of putting op bs in their games.

      • Charlie

        Eh, the powers are like Exo abilities that you have to build up and earn, and those weren’t OP. The weapons have limited ammo and once you die, you start over. Single shot pistols and compound bows aren’t gonna be easy to use weapons. Sounds like you are going to have to put a lot of thought into when your using these features. I can already feel the frustration of earning it and dying right when I start using it.

        • Static_Oz

          Very true! I’m sure Treyarch will do a great job balancing these Abilities/Weapons into the MP gameplay as well.

          I just hope it doesn’t change the game to much.

      • W1LL1AM04

        Pretty much sums up the COD cycle

      • This isn’t Destiny where it takes 10 seconds to kill someone though. Sure they have abilities but they dies just as fast as everyone else.

        • Static_Oz

          (Doesn’t matter if they die just as fast as i do! If they have a stronger Weapon I will be at a big disadvantage. That should be common knowledge.)

          I wasn’t comparing CODs and Destinys “time to kill” I was comparing the Special Abilities/Weapons that Treyarch is introducing to BO3 MP.

          The creators of BO3 have admitted to being Destiny fans and that’s where they got this idea. No, it won’t be the exact same as Destiny but I’m pretty sure it will be similar in many ways.

          Yes it sounds like a cool new addition to COD, but we still haven’t even seen this in MP gameplay. Or even seen or heard about the other 5 Specialist.
          So yes, I’m concerned that I might not love the New abilities/weapons. I truly hope I’m wrong but I won’t be so naive to think it will be amazing before I’ve even seen it in action.

      • UpRiftCOD

        wouldn’t be surprised if they make a playlist without them just in case.

  • ScOott

    It will be so nice when black ops 3 comes out to visit charlie Intel and see no bitching about SBMM for the whole year … Heaven!

    • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

      All we have to complain about are snipers now. And people abusing wall running. IGN said the movement is going to be used most of the time, sadly. I don’t trust youtubers.

      • ScOott

        I don’t trust IGN lol

        • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

          Me neither lol but they played the game, so… youtubers are paid by Activision lol at least in regards to flights and food and such.

          • ScOott

            I bet what ever idiot they send from IGN they would have no idea how the game is ment to be played .. They would of played the game with other useless reporters who haven’t got a clue n it would of been horrible ..

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Press are usually awful.

      • Michael:GodOfEWN

    With all honesty, exos are fun when you’re not being punished by sbmm and you’re doing good. Thats where SHG fucked up. Making all these “improvements” to matchmaking in patches but the game isn’t enjoyable for good players. Im not one bit worried about the movement in Bo3 because I dont have to worry about some sweaty fucker jumping up 10 feet In the middle of a gunfight.

    I love CoD BO2. CoD Ghosts was shit because maps were too big. CoD AW is awful because the double jumping is annoying as f. The last 2 CoDs were horrific. Please Treyarch, deliver this game with your magical powers. IW and SHG created cancer to the CoD franchise. So Treyarch… It’s time to kill the cancer and cure CoD again.

    #CmonNovember!

    • I agree. Also, its funny when I think about this because according to the “CoD cycle” we would say that the previous CoD (Ghosts) is better than AW, which in this case is not true. Can’t wait to see more of Treyarch in the coming months.

  • WhiskeyDick

    This ability sounds retarded! Say your aim is off slightly and you glitch back before u die n re-do the gunfight? What’s the point of that shit?! I can see a lot of you hating this by this time next year. Have they gotten rid of noob tubes in BO3??

    • Spodermen

      noa nubtubs

      • No noob tubes? Or Noah noob tubes? πŸ˜›

  • Lawfulmaxhavoc

    Has anyone pre-ordered through the xbox store? If so do they send you a beta code or are you automatically signed up for it?

  • Rorythedog

    I love sbmm it’s the best feature ever in call of duty all tha hardcore people said they loved the challenge and skill based match making gives them a challenge but they hate it and most players don’t plan on becoming professional players they just want have and don’t reAlly care about learning anything from the good players

    • Lawfulmaxhavoc

      What?

      • zack

        Special router where you can choose not to connect to certain hosts again if you have a laggy connection. Im sure it does more than that also, not sure.

    • The problem I have with SBMM is not the skill level, it’s the fact that I’m constantly put in Overseas servers where the lag is terrible

      • ARTID INCHAI

        This where my netduma come in πŸ™‚

  • jordanxbrookes

    The “Glitch” is a stupid idea. The only thing it’s good for is countering corner campers, but this just sounds fucking annoying.

    • zack

      It’s not like its an ability in aw that you can use every life. Driftor said the most ability uses he got in a match was 4 but usually 2 or 3. He also said that if you get killed while or before using the ability that it’s gone and you have to earn it again. I would think the one shot hand cannon or arm mounted death machine would be more of an annoyance.

      • Random

        Nah he didn’t. He said if you activate and die that’s it, gone. But if you don’t use it and die, it’s still there waiting gor you. Also the meter doesn’t reset, unlike points towards scorestreaks, so you WILL earn one and be able to use it within the match.

    • Like mentioned in the video, it could end up like AW’s Cloak exo ability – people similarly thought the same thing but now with this Glitch ability. Guess we will see what people will use when multiplayer hits.

  • semir krcic

    If a person finds a Glitch on this “Glitch” they better patch this “Glitch” Quick.

    • Glitch-ception?…

      • semir krcic

        yup

  • semir krcic

    how we unlock the special abilities

  • I don’t think that everyone has understood this right, you can’t use it after you die to go through the gun fight back… I don’t see anything wrong with this ability, only one of the nine specialists can use it and you have to always fill your ability meter to use it.

    • Kobrah

      So many people think you can use it after you die

      • Random

        If people sat down and thought about it, being able to use it after a death would be impossible. It would have to effectively “rewind” the whole match, or at the very least you and the person who killed you, who could have gone on to kill someone else in the split second before you used the ability. That would be awful to code I imagine.

        I think it won’t be as bad as people are expecting. While you may be able to back out of a situation, I think it’s going to be rare you need to use it. The other abilities revealed so far sound more useful.

        • LovekillerX

          Well I’m here waiting for other specialists to be revealed. This far specialist with bow and specialist with that pistol sounds interesting.

  • LovekillerX

    According to video from chaosxsilencer there will be a perk called “thrust suppressor”. I think it will be something similar to blast suppressor? So it seems like we are going to get another “must-have perk”.

    • Random

      That’s fine. What they should do is say use of thrust suppressor will decrease the level of thrust you can use. So you won’t be able to use it for quite as long, or perhaps it would be less powerful of a thrust. That would seem a good way to balance it out.

      • lunator100hd .

        nice terrible idea my friend!!!

        • Random

          Elaborate?

          • lunator100hd .

            The problem with blast suppresor is that you cant move without it and if you do, you will be punished by campers because they will know where u come from, at least thats what happens when you play on 2+ kd acount in AW. Exos and thrusters usage shouldnt be shown on the minimap so rushers not be forced to use this perk

          • Charlie

            Movement in this game won’t be as necessary as it is in AW.

          • lunator100hd .

            Movement is the most necessary thing in cod in general, thats what makes it fun

          • Random

            Quite simply, bollocks. Of course you can move without it. Campers are easy to avoid because there’s only a limited number of camping spots. If you truly feel you need to use blast supressor and want to rush around without it, play Hardcore. Or just play an objective mode rather than TDM. But then that would mean playing for the objective, which I guess you won’t want to do as you are clearly protective of your KD.

          • lunator100hd .

            I dont play against campers , i play against super tryhards campers cause of SBMM, These players will absolutely destroy if you let them know where u are, thats why in my lobbies , low profile and blind eye are also must have perks so stop lecture me and keep playing with your scubs that SBMM match you up.

          • Random

            SBMM matches you by SPM not KD, so stop trying to make out like your high KD always has you in lobbies full of campers. Also if I’m a scrub why is it I don’t feel blast suppressor is a crutch perk like you do?

          • lunator100hd .

            ”SBMM matches you by SPM not KD”……………hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha. I didnt say you are a scrub , i said you play against average/scrubs players so you can use prety much everything you want without your enemies taking absolutely advantage of it
