Treyarch’s Studio Design Director, David Vonderhaar, has stated on Twitter that Scorestreaks in Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 will reset upon death.


He also also confirmed that the abilities meter for Specialist characters are not going to reset on death; Vahn does note again that the title is in pre-pre alpha, so this may change before launch.

    No shit they would reset

  • Mick

    That makes sense. So far I like what we’ve been hearing about bo3 thus far. I can’t wait for E3 and the playable beta.

  • Charlie

    This should be obvious. But I’m not gonna lie, this game really does sound good. They are putting a lot out there and getting feedback and I truly think this game will be BO2 on steroids. Can’t wait to see more.

    • Freeze

      They are making all the right calls!

      • Charlie

        Yep. Every topic brought up has gone the way the majority of fans want it or just the way that makes sense. Driftors videos got me really hype as well because he’s talking about stuff like new ADS mechanics and reworked C4. They are putting lots of thought into every aspect of the game.

        • Freeze

          They removed frame rounding too! I personally dont think it could get better

    • Do they mean the points reset, or the scorestreaks you have earned im confused here

      • EJ

        Points will reset, so if you are 50 points away from the highest score streak and die, start over

    • HypeeZGb

      They are putting so much info out to see reaction of majority and see if people want things changed or mot and if they decide on the majority they have plenty of time to change it, just like a beta but without releasing the game. So far all the info is brilliant so i hope it all keeps coming.

    • Static_Oz

      Not trying to be negative, but around this time last year I remember a lot of positive feedback about AW too. And I can recall most people saying AW was going to be awesome. I also remember a lot YouTubers saying they LOVED AW. ( but yet those you tubers are the same ones that Dislike AW now.) Remember how awesome we thought Ghost was going to be?

      I truly hope this isn’t the case for Treyarch. I have faith in them.
      But I don’t think we’ll know much of anything until we see some actual MP gameplay or maybe even until the Community gets some hands-on with the beta.

      • Charlie

        Your 100% right. Hype is always there when we get something that’s new and different from what we’ve been playing for months. The small difference between BO3 and the others is that we know so much stuff that we usually don’t know until much closer to launch. + They are avidly listening to what the community wants.

        Treyarch has hands down made the best games overall from Cod4 on. WAW, BO1 and BO2 are all really good in their own right. Whereas MW3 and Ghosts were pretty bad, and AW had some upsides, but a lot of downsides.

        This game sounds like BO2 updated with a couple of new really good features and a few reworks on things. The movement sounds like the perfect compromise between slow, standard movement in COD, and AW’s movement. They found a way to make it so that you can’t use the advanced movements aggressively or offensively (Aside from the power slide). It’s basically just a smoother option to traverse the maps.

        And if you ask me, besides the obvious big stuff, maps are the biggest factor in whether or not the games are good. And IMO, Ghosts and AW have the worst maps to date, which made the problems those games had stand out even more so. Treyarch already said that most maps will be 3 lanes, nothing vertical past 2 stories, and no overload of places to swim or wall run which would feel very gimmicky.

        All that, plus all this info this early, pus a beta, plus the 3 year cycle from an experienced COD developer. Yeah, I’m gonna say this is gonna be one of the best Cod’s to date, because Treyarch hasn’t disappointed me yet and the games they put out have gotten progressively better each time.

        • ScOott

          ^this deserves more upvotes

        • MW3 was pretty bad?

          I loved that game. It’s guns. It’s perks. The maps. It was the last fun CoD for me.

          • Charlie

            I enjoyed it too tbh, but compared to the other games, yeah not as good. No question bottom 3.

          • Aldo

            Agree with you 100%.

        • Chad Haring

          Mw2 was the bench mark, trearch is the next best thing to the original infinity ward, but that ward is long dead replaced by a much weaker version. But now that , that is the case the only duty I will buy is a trearch.

      • Daniel

        I love AW

        • Xx_ThomesAnTennksweg_xX

          Same here, the cods ive been less hyped for have turned out to be my favourites. Cod4 was my first and until id played it id always thought cod was shit, I loved it though.
          Didnt want black ops 2 as I wasn’t a big gamer then and didnt look interesting enough to buy for £40, got it when it went down and loved it.
          Took a big risk in pre ordering advanced warfare as it was the second game id preordered instead of waiting for reviews (ghosts was my first and that was a mistake), but I think I was so underhyped for it and had so little expectations that it has turned out great in comparison to what I though itd Be.

    • UpRiftCOD

      If they do everything they’ve been saying, this could be one of the best cod’s.

  • Freeze

    makes sense, anyone preorder yet? I did and love the camo you get on AW even though I am not a big fan of that game.

  • Patrick Toworfe

    So no Support style like AW and MW3? Not liking the sound of that tbh. More people earning big killstreaks through luck while everyone else is at the mercy of them and you can’t even do anything. Anyone remember Black Ops II Swarm, Orbital Vsat, Dogs loop? That only certain people could get and you couldn’t do crap about it because there were no support killstreaks? yeah, good times /end sarcasm ¬_¬

    Obviously i aint saying all the killstreaks should have support, it should be like AW where certain non-harmless ones get support. Takes the edge off

    • Freeze

      Trust me, AW is luck, this game will be skill. Plus the specialist streak are good enough to make up for support!

      • Irvin Sandoval

        This game, like CoDs before it, will be half luck half skill; at least the community gets to interact with the developers more this time around so we can keep up to date on potential bull aspects.

        • Freeze

          15% concentrated power of will, no but really you are correct!

        • Kobrah

          AW is by far the most influenced by luck. Fucking weapon variants…

          • Freeze

            That is true, probably 80% luck 5% percent skill, (15% concentrated power of will)

      Support killstreaks are for fucking pussies. I don’t want to get killed by someones support squadmate that they finally got at the end of the game after going 10-20.

  • Thatlazykid

    Treyarch are going to put scorestreaks that get you KILLS unlike ghosts and AW’s killstreaks

        At least they’d get some use.

      • Siftblade of Rivia

        Better than underpowered streaks with no payoff and aren’t worth the amount of points it takes to earn them.

      • Michael:GodOfEWN

        This community really does complain about everything. Lmao

        • Johtoboy

          Or just plain camping.

  • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

    No frame rounding, either. Black Ops III officially has a brand new engine.

    • Freeze

      Well, same engine, much more modification!

      • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

        We will see lol, they probably got rid of all the Quake stuff.

        • Freeze

          Yeah kill off the little quake remaining. 😛

      • Guywithbrains

        Actually even enemy AI is totally redesigned. Everything is pointing towards new engine.

        For example there are a lot of different types of enemy and everyone acts differently: humans communicate and take cover while Terminator-like robots won’t take cover but just shoot with everything they got.

        Sounds cool to me though.

        • lunator100hd .

          that dosent mean new engine at all lol

          • Guywithbrains

            That is only one of the new features. You can see your own legs and shadow too. Also I heard from some guy who was part of Treyarch’s introduction that they talked about “new engine”.

          • Freeze

            I really like to be able to see my legs yaaaaay. I actually am, it bothered me that cod never did it, loved it in BF4

          • lunator100hd .

            Then why they dont notify it

          • Tricky VIk

            “Cause, surprise.”

          • Freeze

            true

          • Look at the engine as the chassis of a car. If they’re changing and tuning the chassis as well as what’s on top, it’s a new engine regardless.

            I hate all this “they’re still using the same engine” shit year after year. If they wrote it from the ground up people would bitch and say “This isn’t CoD!”.

            As long as they’re evolving the engine to push current gen and add things old gen couldn’t handle, that’s all I’m bothered about.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            If there’s no more quake code, it’s a new engine. The AI, gameplay, graphics, etc. were all reworked.

        • They already said to Drift0r that because they’ve been modifying the old engine so much, the PC version has stability issues in pre-pre-alpha version that they’re trying to fix currently.

          https://youtu.be/4nKk1I4isUQ?t=3m36s [3:36]

        • Freeze

          It would take forever to redisign the engine with the same perfection of the previous one.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            The current engine is almost twenty years old. Treyarch is full of talented engineers. They can do it. Three years is enough.

          • Freeze

            That is a good point but they would have to rebuild those 20 years or we are playing a totally different game.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Nah they are good enough this game looks smoother than quake, but we will see. Asking as the controls are as responsive and the game is still fast paced, I couldn’t care less.

          • Freeze

            A different engine will change ALL. So it might be so modified but still similar.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Well it can still act like Quake 3 without being Quake 3, but you’re most likely right.

          • Freeze

            I just want to play it no matter what XD

      “So what that means that if I’m shooting with let’s say an MP11, since it has a high rate of fire, I’ll get hitmarkers quicker, right, I think, that’s how I interpreted it from Driftor.”

        Announcements are coming then lol.

    • XtremeK1ll3r

      What is frame rounding?

      • RdJokr

        Basically, the engine works in frames, so the more frames you have, the faster your gun fires. It was never a problem on consoles, because of the 60 FPS lock, though with the recent games, where frame drops occur constantly on last gen, as well as on PC due to the higher frame rates, it’s been quite an issue. It is one of the factors that made the EM1 incredibly OP on PC, until recent patches fixed that.

        Anywho, with frame rounding removed, it would be good news mostly for PC players, because that means there’s less reason to put a frame rate cap on multiplayer. Last time in BO2, max cap was 200.

      • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

        Cod thinks in frames per second. Fire rate, for example, is effected. It no longer does this. They’re removing as much lag from the game as possible.

      • Freeze

        Oh my god that is great!

    • Siftblade of Rivia

      Man of War doesn’t fit the AR names. If anything, I’d think that was an LMG. Idk, lots of the names feel kinda off compared to other COD games.

      • Freeze

        Prealpha build, probably not final, also it was legitimate info from Chaos, who played thegame so ey

      • RdJokr

        It’s still at pre-pre-alpha stage, so anything could change. Remember when Raging Judge was changed to Executioner? Or XM8 to M8A1?

  • Guywithbrains

    There will probably not be any kind of secret 25 killstreak. David Vonderhaar stated they are not fans of game ending killstreaks or gameplay dramatically affecting killstreaks. However, he stated that Mothership will satisfy you enough to not care about secret streak anymore.

    • The thing is though I don’t want some noob who doesn’t know what he’s doing jumping in my Mothership, as well as stealing my kills. They should give you the option to select Party Only shared streaks or nobody at all.

  • DanzTheMan4

    Scorestreaks have been lacking lately. Bring it on Treyarch!

    • NiloMilo

      Treyarch streaks have always been amazing. And according to the leaked scorestreaks list by thelongsensation, basically almost all black ops 2 streaks are returning with a different name and look

      • Kobrah

        That would be good. Really liked the BOII streaks 🙂

      • Xx_ThomesAnTennksweg_xX

        Hunter killer drones hopefully RReturn

        • ScOott

          That’s the only one I hated, on a big score streak and get taken out by one of them, no hiding from them beasts man, run inside and they follow you.. Paper airplane to face… Fatality …

          • Xx_ThomesAnTennksweg_xX

            I liked them, I only like Ai or quick use streaks like AGRs, vsats and lightning strikes

        • Klaas-Jan Huntelaar

          Go fuck yourself noob.

    • MeisseN

      I love the streak cycle (e.g when you get your highest scorestreak and stays alive you can start earning new ones). Sometimes when I’m bored I’ll just use UAV / Hunter killer / CUAV with Hardline tryhard combo and earn like 3 or 4 UAVs per life. It makes staying alive longer a lot more meaningful

    • jordanxbrookes

      From what I’ve heard, The Mothership is going to be like an AC-130 on crack.

  • zack

    They need to do something about score streaks. In advanced warfare people spam the hell out of the advanced uav, the system hack, warbird, assault drones. They need to go back to KILLstreaks. Honestly cod 4 had it right. Sure it’s fun to get the dogs, chopper gunner, ac130, reaper but the fact is they are OP and cause people to play for the streaks and not for the game. I liked in ghosts the map based streaks you could get for completing in game challenges, especially on the dlc maps. Integrate things like dogs, chopper gunner, etc etc into map based streaks with each map having its own unique streak. I think they should go back to that and the cod 4 style of everyone having the same 3 streaks. And killstreaks not score streaks.

    • Charlie

      Scoresstreaks over kill streaks is one of the best things that COD has added. It rewards you for everything you do to help in the game. Cod4 was fun and simple, but that wouldn’t work. Ghosts pretty much only had a few useful streaks, it was boring. AW only has a few useful ones, and many people not using them cause of Pick13, it was boring. BO2 has it right, with Swarm being the only one they shouldn’t have in that game.

    • Freeze

      Streaks is the reason cod is addictive

      • zack

        I just think it would be better if everyone had the same 3 and then there was that 1 powerful map based streak that everyone is trying to get. Every time you die you get a different type of challenge to complete for the streak. Either that or go all out and make it all about streaks. In advanced warfare you can get a robot controlled assault drone with rockets that literally is a aimbot. And it’s easy as hell to get. I’ve gotten probably 7 or 8 in one game and got almost 100 kills in that game. I’ve also been on the other side of that where I literally can’t even move out of my spawn because I’m getting abused by drones, warbird, bombing runs, system hacks. And all those points they are getting from using those streaks are counting towards more. bring back 3 streaks each, powerful map based streaks, and make it 20 killstreak for nuke.

        • zack

          Everyone is already in a Damn super suit. You are a walking/flying killstreak. They need to make the game more about gunskill and not playing for streaks. Especially if they want to grow esports. I mean there’s a reason streaks are not allowed in ranked and esports. Killstreak/score streaks breed toxic players.

        • Freeze

          and thats why I hate AW, BUT this game is not like that!

    • Kobrah

      Kill streaks discourage players from jumping on flags/ playing the objective though. That’s why I prefer score streaks – reward you for playing the objective, not just sitting in a random corner trying to get a high streak and not helping your team at all

      • Guywithbrains

        Why not point streaks? You get reward from objective and kills?

        • Freeze

          it was confusing, for instance in ghosts if I was not at the flag first I would only get half a point, so I just dont cap the flag because I dont want to think in halfs.

        • That’s how scorestreaks work, right?

          • Guywithbrains

            Yeah but in Black Ops 2 there was score but with point streaks I got “one kill” from capturing the flag in MW3. So I could kill 4 people and capture the flag and then earn Predator Missile.

            I think I have to use care package in this incoming title if they have similar score requirements as in Black Ops 2.

        • Kobrah

          But not for protecting a flag, or assists etc.
          edit: also score streaks are more accurate. You can get like, 125 points for protecting an objective whereas you would only get one point

          • Jason_88

            You get extra points in Dom and hardpoint for protecting a flag you just have to be on or in it not hiding in a corner looking at it when you kill an enemy

          • Kobrah

            Don’t have much experience with point streaks (didn’t play Ghosts much) but I don’t see any advantage they have over score streaks

          • Jason_88

            Oo I’m sorry I thought you were talking about score streaks in Bo2 and in Aw. I didn’t know you were talking about point streaks in ghost.

  • This information doesn’t surprise me…:/

  • ScOott

    Am I missing something.. The reset after death … Don’t they always :-s ..

    • Freeze

      IK, but there is confusion w/ the specialist abilities.

    • Point was most likely to make sure everyone understands how Specialists work

      • ScOott

        Agh yes was hoping they would reset as well, I don’t want to be spammed with “the glitch” ..

        • Freeze

          Ahaha, it will not be a problem, theres a game called overwatch where one character (out of 10 or so) can do it and its not op

          • ScOott

            Never heard of it.. But in this game we can all have the ability, I’m guessing it will be like cloak in a.w everone spammed it when it first came out, then realised it wasn’t that great … I’m expecting a lot of teleporting in the beta!

          • Wait… Aren’t these special abilities tied to the (9) Specialist characters?

          • ScOott

            Yh but you get to choose your character .. Everyone could choose the same, I know teleporting will be the first character I use lol …

          • Well I highly doubt everyone or even majority would choose the Reaper from nine possible characters, and then choose the glitch ability instead of the minigun.

          • ScOott

            I doubt we will get all 9 on beta launch ? .. I assumed we would have the same 4 to play with ..

          • Well maybe not in beta but in the actual game

            And I think I’ll start off with Seraph, one shot kill pistol and temporary “hardline” 🙂

          • ScOott

            Lol but imagine being the first person to be shot in the back so you teleport behind, wall run, 360 no scope faze clan sniper them in the ass.. Upload!

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            Most times you attempt to do that will fail, lol. You’re better off running the minigun and getting a few kills with that instead of trying to pull off a difficult maneuver for one kill.

          • ScOott

            Lol I was just joking, I’m lucky if I can kill someone with a sniper rifle never mind try what I’ve just said …

        • The Glitch is an ability not a streak which doesn’t reset upon death

          • Yes? Scott is talking about the same thing

          • ScOott

            I know that’s why I said I would of preferd to hear they reset ..

          • It would encourage camping and would remove the Ability/Streak concept. I think the time it takes to earn Glitch is well enough balanced.

          • ScOott

            Lol Yh I’m pretty sure treyarch know what they are doing …

        • Aceshigh87

          Even if someone is playing really hard they’ll likely only get 2-3 per match which isn’t that bad. Plus timing it will likely be tricky.

          Besides, it’s too early to tell. Remember how everyone thought that Exo-Cloak would be OP in multiplayer and it wasn’t actually at all?

          • ScOott

            Lol I literally just made a comment about that before reading this …

        • KL

          Don’t worry it takes you back 5 seconds and you keep all existing damage and will take 4 mins to earn without any kills/score.

    • Guywithbrains

      Unless you have support… which isn’t going to be in this game (seems like it).

      I thought it would have been nice to have support streaks like UAV and some flying machines that can mark targets like Recon Drone. Now casuals who come from school to home to have fun and enjoy ain’t getting slice from this cake (in other words fun = streaks).

      • ScOott

        Sounds like so much going to be going on that, it’s probz best that only kill streaks you earn are in the game imo …

    • supr squirrel

      Probably clarification that there wouldn’t be ‘support streaks’ like the last few IW games have had. Support streaks didn’t reset upon death, but didn’t really offer much in the way of kill streaks, either.

    • Kobrah

      Good one Scott, now you’ve confused everyone! 😛

    • Tricky VIk

      “Cause you know, support streaks aren’t returning, yet your specialist stuff won’t.”

    • RdJokr

      They did in BO2. Some Scorestreaks in AW had Support module so the scores you earn for the streaks remain after death. BO3 won’t have that.

    • idkwhatmynameis

      Its treyarch. Everything they touch apparently turns to gold. Everything they do is breaking news.

    • EJ

      They had support style that didnt reset

  • Guywithbrains

    In my country journalist got a chance to play this game and he talked about “spiky mine” which is automatic. He said it is really annoying but everything else he saw/played was looking excellent.

    Hopefully it won’t be I.E.D v2.0

            “Spiky mines were absolutely annoying and kills you got with them had nothing to do with skill. Luckily these were the only annoying things in this game.”

          • He didn’t really explain it that much…

            “The spiky mines were extremely annoying, and kills from those had nothing to do with skill. Fortunately they were actually the only annoying factor for me, so Call of Duty: Black Ops III would seem to become a really entertaining game.”

            The rest of the article is nothing special, he talks about the same things other people who played it have already talked about

        • ScOott

          Wtf? .. Where you from 😮 you can read all that ? 😮

    • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

      Just run sit rep. It’ll change more likely, though.

  • Tricky VIk

    “I wonder where arcengine went..”

    • LovekillerX

      Maybe he was put in Vorkuta to suffer just like Mason and Reznov? Because he leaked stuff?

      • Tricky VIk

        “I never suffered in Vorkuta, Vorkuta suffered from me being there.”

  • Xx_ThomesAnTennksweg_xX

    I hope scorestreaks are still customizable, maybe even add camos.

    • Tricky VIk

      “Supposedly non-customizable, no support scorestreaks, as for camos, be specific, things all subject to change I assume, but it’s highly doubted.”

      • Xx_ThomesAnTennksweg_xX

        Thats ashame, loved customising them. Doubt camos will ever come on scorestreaks but it would be cool if they did

        • Tricky VIk

          “Dreaming doesn’t cost a thing my friend.”

    • ScOott

      It was horrible in a.w made every score streak weak .. Unless u added points, which made it even harder to get ..

      • GinsuVictim

        Yeah, I only run UAV with a few add-ons.

  • Sean

    i really hope there is nothing like system hack involved in bo3

    • LovekillerX

      Well according to LongSensation there is EMP which disables HUD, scorestreaks and cybernetics…

      • Kobrah

        If it’s BOII style EMP streak that’s ok with me.

        • LovekillerX

          That “cybernetics” part worries me lol.

          • Kobrah

            True, didn’t really think that much into it. That could be pretty annoying then… 🙁
            Hopefully it needs a lot of score to earn – not like system hack

          • LovekillerX

            Yeah there was nothing more annoying than System Hack with two extra times and disable exo suits…

          • Imagine the whole enemy team crawling around the map 😀

          • LovekillerX

            Yeah lol.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Specialists, special abilities, wall running, thrusting, and boost slide. Basically, the streak is actually usable, but will be high enough to not get spammed.

    • Stefan Lang

      As long as its not that damn reset timer thingy.

    • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

      More like EMP.

  • LovekillerX

    AK-12 is believed to return in Black Ops 3, according to Call of Duty wiki. Also bullpup assault rifle VHS will make appearance in Black Ops 3.

    VHS seen in the picture (reminds me of BAL-27 oh no):

    http://img2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20150427171356/callofduty/images/thumb/9/99/VHS_first_person_BOIII.png/185px-VHS_first_person_BOIII.webp

    • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

      Yup

    • AK47 pls?

      • LovekillerX

        It would be nice to see it return. Also AK-74 is welcome too.

        • I would be so happy. I love that gun, it just looks so beautiful and the sound too

          • LovekillerX

            Couldn’t agree more lol.

    • ScOott

      Don’t believe wiki anyone can type on their .. Not saying it’s not true .. Just not reliable source ..

      • LovekillerX

        I know but last year there was right information about AW.

        • ScOott

          I hope it does return, wasn’t enough automatic a.r in a.w imo … Or they bring back select fire, that attachment was amazing!

          • LovekillerX

            Especially when using FAL in Black Ops 2… I have heard it was way too OP before nerf.

          • ScOott

            I can’t remember, I just remember sailing through to the diamond camo because of it, it was a biatch to get with the mk14 in a.w … I don’t think I would of got it, if it wasn’t for the game glitching n giving it me for free without completing all challenges..

          • Random

            MK14 was easy to diamond, if you were sensible and played hardcore while going for it.

          • ScOott

            I hate hardcore and hate not being able to rush .. It was horrible imo …

          • Vonderhaar tweeted a while ago that they don’t like select fire, it makes balancing guns harder

          • Guywithbrains

            *cough* FAL in Black Ops 2 *cough*

          • ScOott

            Gud dem et :-/

  • zack

    At the end of the day, the maps are going to make or break this game. Everything else is somewhat fixable. They can’t mess up the maps again for a 3rd time in a row.

    • the specialist

      if you want maps to work then they should make them BIG.if the maps are small to medium sized then it will be a cluster fuck in every match.

      • Xx_ThomesAnTennksweg_xX

        Hahaha, Big maps completely fucked up ghostS. Even if you had an exo suit in ghosts the maps would probably still be too big.,

        • zack

          ghosts maps would play better in advanced warfare and advanced warfare maps would play better in ghosts in my opinion.

          • FazalGaming

            Totally

          • Xx_ThomesAnTennksweg_xX

            Most of ghosts maps wouldn’t work in anything, only a few good maps In the game imo: stormfront(one of my favourite maps ever), octane and warhawk. Id quite like to see Stonehaven remade for aw but the rest can stay in ghosts.

          • WhereWeBall

            Super jump on strik zone wouldn’t work

    • The bits I saw in the reveal trailer looked fine, for example when the guy jumped out of the water into the tunnel. It looked like a really open and bigger area just like it should be

  • Deadly Ed

    Doesn’t surprise me. Kill/score streaks have never really interested me though. The blackbird or blackbird style streak is all i’m really bothered about. In AW all i ever have is a UAV with threat detection.

  • forrest1985

    I suck at MP so the support UAV’s etc…were always a way for me to help the team. I liked AW’s system of “attachments” for killsteaks as it allowed better players to get awesome bonuses without punishing newbies. For the record im not a N00b as played COD since its PC days, im just rubbish

  • Andy1118

    I got try it out once the game was released.

  • Guywithbrains

    Hacking mechanics? Black Hat or something else?

    https://twitter.com/DavidVonderhaar/status/593453918631239680

    • I’ve completely forgot about black hat… Loved to steal care packages with that thing 😀

    • Bolbi Stroganovsky

      Gosh please bring Blackhat back; I love trolling with it. Turning a camper’s claymore into mine, haha

      • Guywithbrains

        You can hack enemy equipment too? 😮 My whole life has been a lie!

        • Bolbi Stroganovsky

          Mhm, done that a lot when dealing with campers in the houses in Nuketown; it was hilarious
          #GoodTimes

          • Guywithbrains

            I have bad memories of campers with Remington 870mcs + shock charges + bouncing betty in Nuketown 2025.

          • Bolbi Stroganovsky

            Same man, same

        • Drasadex

          Yup, you could hack claymores, C4, shock charges, killstreaks, care packages, and more.

  • LovekillerX
  • MvNReckless

    when are they just going to have a hour reveal like they did for CODAW

    • FazalGaming

      Probably at E3

      • noonespecial

        no probably. for sure. check a few articles ago 🙂

  • EJ

    Tweeted vonderhaar asking about the younger players and those lacking skill, respose was as follows (Red because of tweetcaster app)

  • EJ

    STOP ERASING MY COMMENTS!!!!

    • Bolbi Stroganovsky

      I don’t think anyone is erasing your comments xD
      I see the tweet here 3 times; lag perhaps?

      • EJ

        Correct had to search for them lol normally they dont dusappear on me lol

  • Mi6300M

    I will be honest and say that I am NOT the greatest person in Call of Duty. I don’t get as many consistent kills to earn a killstreak worth a damn so what advanced warfare and MW3 did worked well for me. More so in Advanced Warfare. So I’m very excited about this news. This seems like Call of Duty is heading in the right direction.

    • I enjoyed MW3 and Ghosts score streaks because support streaks helped your team and assault streaks got you more kills. I also really enjoyed MW3 specialist because of the specialist package. I hated the score streak system in BO2 because you couldn’t really get anything in TDM. All the score streaks were only achievable in DOM and Hardpoint.

      • Everything was wrong with the Stealth Bomber in MW3 though, that should never ever have been a Support Streak.

        • I ran it all the time just to fuck with everyone. I was a massive asshole lol.

      • WhereWeBall

        In TDM I Get VSAT And Choppers And StuffLike That but that might be me trying a little to hard

  • KevJumbaify .

    Will the maps have dynamic events like a rain storm or something like that?

  • hungryandrew

    Bring on K-9 units.

    • Static_Oz

      I think the (Roller Spike Balls) are replacing K-9 units.

  • LovekillerX

    I don’t know if this tells anything but in this Reddit post David Vonderhaar says “+1 for Raid remake.” If you check his Black Ops 2 Reddit posts (by checking his profile first and from there) you can see it is his official account.

    Tell me if I misunderstood something or got something wrong.

  • 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?

  • Name

    bring back the SAM turret! loved dat thing <3

    • zack

      Or just a rocket launcher that works unlike what we have in aw.

  • Reckless_Gamer45

    I actually like having the scorestreaks reset after death. It brings challenges and stops people from getting palidans 10 times in a game of team deathmatch

  • Jay Gautreau
    • Ryumoau

      yay!! Thank you so much for posting this. 😀

    • Rav

      the only thing that the link confirmed is that treyarch is not going to make last gen. But other companies might.

  • Ryumoau

    i wouldn’t mind the scorestreaks all being like this. I’ll likely only use the lower end ones like UAV and HC-XD anyway, so it won’t be an issue for me. 🙂

  • Bolbi Stroganovsky

    ..

  • Chase

    VSAT like streak atm is like the Adanced UAV from MW3 but subject to change. Ghost like perk is like Blops 2 Ghost…have to be moving to have it work.
