Spectre

Treyarch has officially revealed two new specialists for Call of Duty: Black Ops 3, Battery and Spectre.

BATTERY:

  • Bio: The only daughter and youngest child of five siblings, Erin Baker always had to fight to get her way. Following in a family tradition of over 100 years of military service, and watching her brothers enter the US Army one-by-one, she finally graduated high school and enrolled herself. Driven to excel by her ongoing rivalry with her brothers, she volunteered for Airborne School, before crushing the Ranger Assessment and Selection Program. Heavily armored, she fearlessly operates ahead of the front lines, nimbly traversing urban environments, as she destroys HVTs with salvoes of advanced high-explosive munitions.
  • Weapon: War Machine – This grenade launcher fires time-fused bouncing frag grenades which explode on contact with an enemy.
  • Ability: Kinetic Armor – Charged electrically-reactive armor that sublimates enemy bullets on contact, turning them into a vapor which dissipates harmlessly.

David Vonderhaar has confirmed that the voice actor behind Battery is Morla Gorrondona. She is also in Destiny as Eris Morn.

SPECTRE:

  • Bio: Next to nothing is known about the presumed wet-works Specialist, Spectre. The designation itself is a codename agreed upon by the various agencies that have pooled their intelligence on unsolved assassinations, inferring his or her existence based on either evidence found at the scene or from fragmentary reports given by shaken bystanders.  Despite heavy redaction, all accounts suggest an individual capable of extraordinary stealth, able to evade or neutralize the most sophisticated of manned or automated security set-ups.  In every case, Spectre’s victims have been ‘handled’ with surgically precise mid-line wounds with rarely any signs of struggle.
  • Weapon: Ripper – Spectre deploys mono-edged twin blades before gracefully dissecting victims with lethal, surgical precision.
  • Ability: Active Camo – Advanced meta-materials rapidly change their properties, guiding photons over their surfaces instead of reflecting them, rendering Spectre temporarily invisible.

Treyarch has also released two new screenshots for these new specialists:

            You’re not funny and people are sick of your nonsense.

        • Thomas Huffman

          I liek brakes duerng wurk.

  • Seems like that new female specialist has a Juggernaut ability.

  • Daniel

    I need a beta code so bad 🙁

    • semir krcic

      Do u got a ps4

      • semir krcic

        I could help u

    • TheWalkingDon

      Just preorder and you’ll get one. You won’t be charged until the game ships.

      • Daniel

        I tried that already it didnt work, I’ve tried to pre order it from everywhere

        • TheWalkingDon

          I preordered from Amazon and I haven’t been charged yet and I got the preorder code that you got to call of duty’s website and put in and then it’s reserved. I’m not sure where the problem you are having is.

  • Dr. Salim

    Spectre looks like someone from Blacklight Retribution.

  • Xerolh

    Spectre looks badass.

  • Spectre has a short sword. (Take it any way you want)

    • Dr. Salim

      Glowstick 🙂

    • RdJokr

      I believe the correct term is “wrist-blade”.

      But call it whatever you like, because I know I’ll be slicing people with this thing when the beta comes.

  • Thomas Huffman

    HOLY F*CKIN SH*T A 3RD FEMALE CHARACTER??? Theres like 2 male characters and 2 robots??? I DONT WANNA BE A FEMALE!!!

    • I’m pretty sure you have the option to switch between male or female for any of the Specialists (excluding the robot one). Don’t get to worked up.

      • RdJokr

        Nah, character genders are locked in with each Specialist. They all have specific names and story backgrounds already, so you can’t really switch their genders around.

        Plus, there’s Reaper. So, yeah.

        • Thomas Huffman

          Reaper is the 9th and last one right?

          • RdJokr

            Uh, no. Reaper’s the robot.

          • Thomas Huffman

            So we still haven’t seen the final specialists?

          • RdJokr

            Nope. Got one left. Treyarch will probably save him/her for the launch trailer.

          • Thomas Huffman

            Him

          • RdJokr

            You don’t know who the last Specialist is. It could be a him, or her, or even it (if it’s another robot).

          • SarDoggy

            ?? We can only hope ? (??)

        • That’s dumb, but getting worked up over playing as a female is a tad childish.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Not really, it just depends on the intentions.

          • He’s mad because he doesn’t want to play as a girl. That’s dumb

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            I’m sure it’s the fact that he feels forced to be one.

          • But why should that matter? It’s just a girl in a video game? This is why I hate the internet -_-

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            It is a problem if you can’t change the gender freely. I don’t have a problem with it. But with all of the controversy about female characters in gaming, I’m skeptical.

          • Thomas Huffman

            It’s not childish its just always been male characters until the last couple years because of the slut pride feminists

          • There’s been females in the military for decades. They would’ve been added to game one way or another.

    • jooker-jr

      Then don’t play with a female character.

      • Thomas Huffman

        But i want to play as the seraph and YOU CANT CHANGE HER TO MALE! Come on treyarch :/

        • Jellies Designs

          Looks like you’re going to have to put on your big boy pants, I’m sure robots are playing this game thinking “I don’t want to me a MALE”

          • Thomas Huffman

            What ? ?

        • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

          This has feminism written all over it. The fuck, Treyarch?

          • Thomas Huffman

            Yup. I think we are more oppressed than women now a days ??

        • jooker-jr

          well, sorry…

          BUT, if you really want to then your lucky, with the next customization pack, you can with A FEMALE, only for 4.99

          -ACTIVISION

    • AwokenFemaleFTW

      Male: spectre, nomad, ruin, prophet
      Female: outrider, seraph, battery
      Robot: reaper
      ?: classified

      4 males maybe 5

  • Michael Aylwin

    has any one got a confirmation email for putting in beta code?

    • Group_935

      No

  • Group_935

    So many different specialist characters. I don’t know if they will add anything to multiplayer.

  • Ryumoau

    I like Battery’s character design but Spectre looks so freaking awesome!! Though i’m not a fan of cloaking/invisiblity at all. Not sure why developers feel insistent on shoehorning it into every futuristic game.

    Hopefully it will be like AW’s Exo-cloak, where no one uses it because its really lame. lol

    • Joshwoocool

      I could see myself pretending to be like the spy from TF2

  • LovekillerX

    Wow these specialist really sound cool. I really hope that all specialists are balanced… that grenade launcher dude though. ^_^’

    • Yankeephil

      It sounds like the war machine from BO2 zombies. I can’t wait till ppl start killing themselves with it

      • Joshwoocool

        you know it’ sounds like the war machine from multiplayer(grenades detonate on impact) not the zombies version witch shoots uncooked grenades

        • Yankeephil

          It’s more of an inbetween, they have a timed fuse but then detonate if they come into contact with enemy players. So if you shoot it near them it won’t blow up unless it actually touches them

  • Diego Diniz

    Battery = Miley Cyrus

    • Jessica Because

      And every bottled blonde guy looks like Eminem. Yada, yada…

      • Thomas Huffman

        Stop feminist

  • Truthteller

    My god they’ve really dumbed this franchise down! To think this POS is made by the same people that did the original Black Ops; it’s a bit of a tragedy. It’ll flop more than Ghosts just like Advanced Warfare.

    • Koolz

      Lolno

  • Deadly Ed

    i dont like this fixed character bull shit.. if my fave ability/weapon is attached to a character i dont want, im screwed.
    It’ll be just my luck that my fave ability/weapon will be on a woman, and i’ll have to listen to a bloody woman’s voice all the time 🙁

    • Thomas Huffman

      Thats what im sayin! I wanna use the annihalator pistol aka golden gun but i dont wanna listen to pornography everytime i GET F*CKIN SHHHHOTTTTT!!

      • Deadly Ed

        Exactly!

        • DJSkrubBoy

          You’re an idiot…

          • Deadly Ed

            Explain…?

          • DJSkrubBoy

            There’s no need to.

          • Deadly Ed

            Yeah there is. I made a valid point. I don’t like being forced to use characters i may not like the appearance and voice off, because i like their weapon/ability.

            I personally find the female voices/noises in the last 2 games to be both annoying and distracting, I dont want to be forced into hearing another terrible female soldier.

            All your doing is throwing out childish baseless insults. Please explain why you think i’m an idiot, if you can? 😉

          • DJSkrubBoy

            Well here’s an idea, Don’t play any female characters.

          • Deadly Ed

            Wow, you really don’t have a clue do you? I’d pay more attention in school if i were you 😉

          • DJSkrubBoy

            This isn’t really about school. Whatever, I’m done.

          • SarDoggy

            Yeah there is. He made a VERY good point.

      • Jessica Because

        First off, lol pornography. What voices is the woman supposed to make when she gets shot? Grunt and grumble? If the sound out of a womans mouth sounds like porn, perhaps you should cut back on happy time.
        Secondly, I’m fairly certain you can turn off the voices.

        • Thomas Huffman

          Umm just don’t make the AHH as loud when she gets shot. Its so loud and high pitched

  • RdJokr

    Boy, the game’s textures look really on point! And the 4k screenshots only make it look even better <3

    Now I know my top 3 Specialist choices: Prophet, Spectre and Outrider. Gonna try to use all three for the beta.

    • Diego Diniz

      i’ll go with SCYTHE. That MiniGun is Awesome!

    • Thomas Huffman

      My top 3 are Ruin for overdrive in OBJ modes. Seraph for the Annihilator pistol and Reaper for the Scythe death machine coming out of hand thing. So excited!!

    • Xerolh

      I like reaper, spectre and outrider.

    • Thomas the TankSwag

      Outrider will be my main specialists, i love the bow and arrow and her character looks cool.

  • Thomas Huffman

    I want to get a beta weapons,scorestreaks,equipment and specialists list with what rank you unlock all of them.

  • AlexK489

    Am i the only one who feels like Spectre was somewhat inspired by Zer0 from Borderlands 2?
    I absolutely love him.

  • Stefan Lang

    Where’s the specialist when you turn into a Crimbot?

    • Axel Noir

      a wat

    • Jimmy DeLaura

      this is nessacary

  • Guywithbrains

    Spectre sounds really awesome. However, also Miley Curys with a grenade launcher doesn’t sound that bad either.

    Well I am going to test everything anyway so can’t wait for beta to arrive.

  • jahladagaming

    So Spectre “borrows” more from Destiny, blade dancer and invisibility

    • jooker-jr

      And destiny didn’t “borrow” these abilities from somewhere,, right?

      • Siftblade

        What does that matter? Vahn is a huge Destiny fan, this specialist is very likely inspired by the Bladedancer subclass.

        • jooker-jr

          I’m just saying that destiny is probably not the 1st game to feature a character with two blades.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Weird, vague, pointless logic. Characters with two blades doesn’t narrow it down, very well. That’s a pretty big percentage, and not what the ability actually is. It is a Superhuman ability. Seems like Vahn did steal/borrow ideas from Density- I mean- Destiny, and I’m sure that’s evident, by now.

          • jooker-jr

            you have a point, but does it really matter ?

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            It provides the fact that these developers are unqualified for originality, and must copy the ideas from more capable studios. This, coming from a publisher who gave a big enough budget for BOTH the Black Ops and Destiny franchises, could have easily used such a budget to at least try to innovate. In other words, laziness. No matter. Developers are just here to make everything work. I guess we have low expectations, nowadays, and games are no longer about innovation/revolutionary ideas.

          • jooker-jr

            name a game that didn’t borrow anything from other games ?
            almost every idea you can think of has been already done.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            That’s no excuse. Doesn’t mean you carbon copy each and every Density character. Unoriginality is a concept not worthy of justifying.

            One could argue the Souls series. Even if its gameplay isn’t the most innovative thing, its tactical/Strategy elements and difficulty factor made it innovative. Treyarch is directly copying Bungie’s work.

          • jooker-jr

            So bungie didn’t directly copy anyone’s work?

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Not with the Specialists. I’m sure they have before. What, you thinking I’m defending Bungie? I can’t stand Density. You think my nickname for Destiny was a typo?

        • jooker-jr

          it is, but inspired =/= ripoff

    • Johtoboy

      Black Ops 3 is Destiny’s child

      • hungryandrew

        Beyoncé?

      • Ak74u

        It’s black ops 2 the father and destiny the mother

  • jooker-jr

    I don’t know how will they balance these 9 characters. Hope they balance them well.

    • RdJokr

      The key point about all of the Specialists’ weapons and abilities, is that when they activate them, there’s a clear sign to show other players that they are using a weapon/ability. Like, say for example, Ruin’s Gravity Spikes. When he uses it, he has to jump up in the air and pull out his spikes. During that moment, if the other team can react quick enough to shoot him, they can prevent their deaths.

      • jooker-jr

        im worried that you might get it a bit too much.

        • RdJokr

          Let’s just wait till the beta and see how it plays out. I’m certain it would be mostly balanced though.

          • jooker-jr

            #InRdJokrWeTrust

  • ScOott

    Battery ability, sounds op, il be using it for sure ..

    • Diego Diniz

      Its NOT OP. Because her Head can be Shotted easily. This “shield” is only on her chest. Its a Good one for Domination…

      • ScOott

        Thanks I didn’t read that! At least it’s not that bad then.

  • DJSkrubBoy

    Iv’e noticed that some people don’t like specialists. I don’t get what’s wrong with them. They add actual story into multiplayer, and I don’t know about you guys, but I love story-driven games.

    • Daniel

      Its not cod, its just a gimmick that gives you super powers

      • DJSkrubBoy

        Hey, at least it’s working.

      • RdJokr

        Or… it’s just like support Scorestreaks that are exclusive to each of the Specialists.

        If you don’t feel like using killstreaks to spice up your game, then don’t use it. Just don’t cry when others use it against you.

  • Diego Diniz

    Sorry my bad english cause i’m brazilian. But I dont understand exactly what Spectre Weapon Do. Can you guys explain to me???

    • DJSkrubBoy

      He basically has duel-wield lightsabers.

      • Diego Diniz

        Just Knife People and thats all??? So, This is Why they changed Melee System on This Game???

        • DJSkrubBoy

          Maybe, but, your guess is as good as mine.

    • QuickzZ-_-GhosT

      Ela tem uma lamina em cada pulso.

      • Diego Diniz

        Então, foi por isso que mudaram o Sistema de Facada no Jogo! Agora vc não mata mais de insta-kill quando dá facada. Precisa de 2 Hits pra matar e com esse Personagem vc vai poder matar enquanto estiver com a Arma Especial Habilitada…

        • QuickzZ-_-GhosT

          Faz sentido.

          • Diego Diniz

            Não Curti a Arma especial dele. Vou usar a Mini-Gun do Reaper e a pistola de 1 shot kill…

          • Daniel

            A arma dele é pra trollar huehuehue
            Como tu fez a pré compra? N consegui fazer em nenhum lugar

          • Diego Diniz

            Minha PSN é Americana. Agora quero arrumar um jeito de comprar a versão PC no Steam. OU mudando de região com VPN ou de alguma outra forma mas eu quero jogar esses 10 dias de Beta! 5 dias no PS4 e 5 dias no PC.

          • QuickzZ-_-GhosT

            Eu nou usar as armas muito. Vou mais usar a habilidade de ver pelas paredes.

  • imBATMAN

    so we’ve got;
    Titan smash, Golden gun, Self resurrect, Arc blade. Do we have a bubble and nova bomb?

    • Daniel

      Exactly!

    • Ratboy

      well battery has the shield that turns bullets to vapor so I guess thats a 1 man bubble…

      • imBATMAN

        no that’s juggernaut, it’s a titan ability.

  • Kyle Soule

    How many do we have revealed so far?

    • MichiganerE

      8.

      • Kyle Soule

        I forgot are there 11 or 9?

        • MichiganerE

          9.

  • spartanelite

    Pretty sure battery is a 2060 lesbian,I’m sure people will enjoy killing her if she is ._.

    • jooker-jr

      That is a nice motivation to play games.

      • spartanelite

        For some will :l

  • Where are the pictures from?

  • Diego Diniz

    Aim Assist for those Who Like To play with Controllers on PC?

  • Black

    Spectre looks boss.

    • Diego Diniz

      Battery looks Miley Cyrus…

      • Black

        Hopefully she can twerk too.

        • Diego Diniz

          Wrecking Ball Tities…

  • Xayo

    So what is the level cap in the beta? Because we all know we can’t prestige

    • SarDoggy

      My 2 guesses are 50 or 55.

  • The7Reaper

    How many people will cry about invisibility then realize it’s trash like AW?

  • Thomas Huffman

    What do you want to see from infinity ward in 2016 http://strawpoll.me/5186003

  • Aymen Skiken

    ffs now they decided to add miley cyrus …

  • LOLWUTM8

    There just had to be some sort of invisibility… hope it’s not OP.

  • shantzonpoint

    I’m sorry but the entire specialist abilities class seem utterly retarded. CoD is consistently getting further and further away from a 1v1 better player wins type game.

    • Koolz

      Lolwut

  • Oh dear, a temporary invincibility?

    I really feel like these specialists are the SBMM and Supply Drops of BO3

    • Xerolh

      More than likely the invisibility will be shit.

    • RdJokr

      Battery’s head is left uncovered though. So my advice is, aim for the head.

  • Name

    wow spectre pretty much has a predator wrist blade…kewl

    • SarDoggy

      And he can go invisible.

  • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

    Our worst fears have been realized… Treyarch borrowing ideas from Sledgehammer. The Specialist abilities.

    • SarDoggy

      I kind of agree but what other abilities can treyarch do? I’m actually kinda curious so i can send these ideas to treyarch.

      • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

        You really think that Vahn is creative by borrowing (stealing) ideas from Density? Rather than copying and pasting the Blade Dancer in a supposed FPS game, they could think of something else.

        How about take out abilities?

    • Logic

      the specialist abilities are copied from Destiny lmao

      • True. Vahn was constantly tweeting his Destiny character. Or Destiny in general at that time.

      • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

        I know, I’ve mentioned that multiple times, however, they also took them from AW. AW also had a Juggernaut ability, and Lightweight ability.

  • Redrum

    what specialist + ability do you think will be best?

    • SarDoggy

      Seraph,Reaper or Battery.

  • Adam

    Anyone know if there will be 4 player local split screen multiplayer in BO3?

  • SarDoggy

    Go vote! Infinty ward time era of game! http://strawpoll.me/5189353

  • Tsaki

    Well, it seems that from the picture of the Spectre that the Sentry Gun will come back

  • melchor2679

    Looks like Spectre will be my specialist of choice.

  • Parrylyse

    When you saw “spectre” you already knew it was a cloak.

  • Smayo

    That kinetic armor sucks, make it at least that you need to pump in more bullets instead of invincibility, I can already see myself running a decent streak and run in into a muppet with this ability…

  • Jay Evan

    Idea of a new Specialist

    Name: Kilo

    Bio: a Young veteran of the United States Marine Corps who later took a career in boxing to cope with his Post-traumatic stress disorder, making a good living off of it. However, he reenlisted and signed up into the military to volunteer in cybernetic enhancements to prove himself again.

    Ability: (can’t think of a decent one.)

    Weapon: RPF- rocket propelled detachable fist that can be deployed and shot toward enemies and scorestreaks enough to cause significant damage. (no aim assist.)

  • Kain Van Norstrand

    Black ops stealing Dan LuVisi’s designs

  • Kain Van Norstrand

    right side 2008 left side 2000 and late.

  • noobswontlie

    “War Machine” Demoman, anyone?

  • Sidney leve

    This does not work horrible specialist ability kinetic blows

  • Amy

    Bo3 was made with Activision’s help, Activision also helped on Destiny. Why do you think a female Titans’ helmet is EXACTLY like Spectres
