Treyarch has announced that they have decided to extend the Black Ops 3 beta another day; the beta will now end on Monday, August 24th at 10pm PT. The Beta was supposed to end sometime today, but the extension is welcome news to any fans who had trouble getting online the last few days. Still no word on if Xbox One or PC beta will follow the same pattern. Stay tuned.

    beta extended, but lag won’t be resolved till Monday at 9pm pacific lol

  • YoungMurf

    Yessaa! Great news but just one question.. Do you have to be a certain level to be able to use the paint job on your weapon? Mine still comes up none :-/

    • JDahn

      No. You can use all paintjobs from the start. It’s a glitch that makes the paintjobs inapplicable. It’s happening to everyone ,Youtubers also tweeted about it.

      • YoungMurf

        Yeah mine aren’t applying to the gun at all so it must be a glitch on their side. But it’s just a beta I suppose…

    • Yankeephil

      At the main menu you need to push the options menu and select paintshop there, the none you are seeing is when you try to apply a paintjob to your gun. After you create a paintjob then you can use it in game

      • YoungMurf

        Thanks for the reply but it doesn’t seem to be applying the paint job to the gun now that I’m in the paintshop :-/ probably a glitch.

        • Dr. Salim

          Reset the game.

          • Choppabro2psn

            Correct, that’s what I’ve done multiple times and it worked after that.

        • Siftblade

          Press triangle on the gun you want and equip the paintjob

    • Kobrah

      Did you try pressing triangle (personalise) on your weapon in create-a-class?

      • YoungMurf

        Yeah finally got it thanks dude ­čÖé

  • Group_935

    I fucking love Treyarch.

  • Primey_

    Hoping the PC/X1 BETA gets extended as well.

    • Choppabro2psn

      If you guys have no trouble logging on, than there’s no ne for it to be.

      • I hate how logic works sometimes.

        • Choppabro2psn

          Lol

  • JDahn

    Vonderhaaaaaaaaarr!!! <3

  • Will WilFredo Mendoza

    Im expecting some whiners to come in.

  • Gaming HD

    Come let’s do it till Thursday come

  • Brad

    Watch them not do it on the Xbox, Sony has its cock far up Treyarch’s ass.

    • fuckhuson

      and it’s ass has already been loosened by Xbox, sooooo, stop fucking complaining and make the switch like I and a lot of people have done

      • Michael:BULLETCLUB

        If you made the switch because of COD then you’re a nerd lmao

        • Michael:BULLETCLUB

          And not like a hot female nerd, no I mean a basement dwelling, nerd.

          • FazalGaming

            Basement dwelling pimple faced asthmatic nerd

        • Nicholas Tipps

          whats your favorite game

        • Tell me why you purchased your console/your first game on it?

        • Brad

          Do people not remember that cod dlc is something you download and play for about 3 days then return to normal playlists? Lol it’s never anything special the only real advantage is with this beta. Also the nerds that switch because think they can be the next optic nadeshot that we get the pleasure of laughing at

          • Sol Malus

            And the zombies.

        • Stefan Lang

          Right ??? only way Id switch is if I was super fucking thirsty to try out the new maps. I can wait for that shit. Yhe only legit reason to switch is if you’re planning on going pro. You have to be a top amatuer for that though.

        • Jessica Because

          im not sure you know what a nerd is.

    • DJ3K

      Sound like a salty fanboy. The deal is with sony now so don’t expect it, xbox users got everything early/special treatment for 6 years, now it’s Sony’s turn. I would’ve liked everyone get everything at the same time, but it’s a business.

      • Oh piss off, stop with the “it’s sony’s turn”, no one cares either way. The majority of the people complaining are fanboys that can’t get over a fucking change that has been expected for the last few months! It’s not the case of it being the opposite consoles turn, it’s the case of statistics on Activision’s side, along with the money Sony has thrown towards it.

        This was because of connectivity issues which are still ongoing, not because of the deal, I’m sure it will most likely be the same for Xbox if it’s the same case.

        Both consoles have there advantages at the end of it all.

        • Kinetic

          Also to create hype for the game tho

        • xboxisdead

          Well your wrong from the looks of it a lot of people care and u can tell just from these comments you already have one Xbox user jumping ship to PlayStation who just commented and told us so how many more little bobby’s r out there who said no mommy now I need a PlayStation for cod dlc so cut the crap people care

      • Brad

        I don’t give a shit about early dlc if they get more time with the beta it will be a huge problem.

      • Stefan Lang

        “Salty” is thrown around a lot by you Sony Ponies. Nobody is ever really salty, it’s only logic. If Sony gets an extension then Xbox should as well. I dont give a shit what type of problems there were.

        • Jenish Katuwal

          Yep. You are the definition of salty.

          • Stefan Lang

            Im not?? I havent bought dlc since Mw2 I couldnt care any less about it. Get the fuck outta here kid.

          • jdc

            You are the definition of SALTY

          • Stefan Lang

            Your logic: “Let me repeat pretty much what the previous guy said and see if he’ll actually give a fuck this time.”

            I’ll tell you now, you’ve failed. Insert another coin and try again ­čśë

          • jdc

            Clearly I won. You took the time to reply kid…

          • Stefan Lang

            “Kid” ????????? fuckboy, you didnt win shit. Take your L.

          • jdc

            like i said before…i have some tissues for you kid

          • Jenish Katuwal

            Tell you what if your xbox matters to you so much that you have to defend it even though no ‘sony ponies’ are attacking it.. then your just salty.

      • I know its wrong to say this and it’s out of character for me, but seriously dude, go fuck yourself.

        • ScOott

          Lmao! Go Moo Cow.. ?

    • Siftblade

      They extended it because of network issues.

      • Sol Malus

        Whst network issues?

        • Siftblade

          We couldn’t connect to lobbies for half a day. It was going on and off. And when you did connect, you lagged like crazy.

          • prometheus59650

            The lag was insane. You’d literally vault across the map or freeze for 5 seconds at a reload.

        • Diego Diniz

          LAG LAG LAG AND MORE LAG!

    • spartanelite

      I mean they better because if its not that just a dick move

    • Mikey9835

      Can we all stop with this console war? Its pathetic. I have a hotpoint dishwasher but i used to have a bosch.Different cylinders, same performance .

      • Brad

        What console war? More like a company war. It’s bullshit that games punish you for what console you chose to buy.

        • Mikey9835

          I agree with you it is stupid, but its just business. We cant do anything about it. Its still the same experience whether your on ps4 xbone or PC.

          • Jessica Because

            Unfortunately, thats true. So much potential held back by console. On the other hand, still playing on cod on pc is nothing like playing with a fucking controller on such a low fps.

    • Ri─Źards Jansons

      Jealous?

  • DJ3K

    Worst specialist? rejack what were they thinking brining back last stand/final stand/second chance cheese. I’m guessing it won’t be removed cause of ego, hopefully a nerf at least.

    • Choppabro2psn

      Nerf? No, it doesn’t need to be. I use it and barely make it out of it because he takes so long to pull his gun out. So it ends up being 2kills for the person shooting you, while you take one. I’ve died from coming back more than it has benefitted me. I use it to get my scorestreaks after premature or untimely deaths. It doesn’t work the way I want it more than It does.

      • Kinetic

        you should wait a few seconds when you go down makes the opponent think you won’t use it and surprises them

        • Choppabro2psn

          That’s precisely what I do. It’s called tactics, which cod seems to lack now. But yeah sometimes, they still notice me and blow me away the second I get up. You can only wait so long.

      • DEMOLITION12

        they don’t get 2 kills lol they get the points for 2 kills

        • Choppabro2psn

          That’s what I meant. The points for two kills might as well be two kills, right?

          • DEMOLITION12

            not in terms of killstreak i don’t think

          • Choppabro2psn

            Yeah you do get the points for two kills toward your kill streak.

          • DEMOLITION12

            not what i said

    • Siftblade

      I don’t understand why people are complaining about rejack. Anyone who’s played the beta can see how useless it is compared to other specialists.

      • Patrick Murray

        Destiny has the same exact thing where you come back from the grave and if you use it in pvp its basically useless all it really does it spam grenades and a little bit of resistance from everything

        • Siftblade

          Yeah. Only things it’s useful in is Trials aka SnD. Other than that, it’s just as pointless.

          • Patrick Murray

            Yeh you don’t know how many times i tried to use it in clash (TDM) and I always died and never got a kill

    • Bolbi Stroganovsky

      See green smoke?
      SPRAY IT,
      KILL IT TILL IT DIES

      I don’t see the problem; it’s quite useless

    • Drasadex

      I teabagged someone the other day when I found them using Rejack.

      Shot them, teabagged them, then killed them again lmao

    • Patrick Murray

      Lol not being a hater or anything but bo3 basically stole specialist from destiny. Rejacked is self ress from destiny lol don’t get me wrong bo3 looks like a fun game but all I see is bo2 mixed in with some advanced warfare and to top it all of there’s some destiny

      • Bliq

        Activision helped with Destiny, and they have probably been sitting with those ideas for god knows how long. So I don’t think they stole anything.

  • fuckhuson

    too bad the connections suck ass, played today and says I had 35, 40 ping but really was a 999 ping

    • Dr. Salim

      Get off that McDonald’s wifi.

    • Peewee78368

      999ping the ping only goes to 400. So i know u lying

      • SuperImpact

        He’s being sarcastic brah

      • Bliq

        Lol what? It can go higher than 400. I have had ping at even over 9000, I kid you not.

  • KuuGeeL

    Im still stuck at lvl 32 couldn’t join a game ever since. Hope the matchmaking is better on xbox one.

    • Dr. Salim

      Matchmaking has been fine for the last 2 1/2 days.

      • KuuGeeL

        not for me although I have an 8Mbps connection, I was playing bo2 before the beta started I always had a 4bar connection and now when I play bo3 its always 2bar or 3bar.

        • Dr. Salim

          8Mbps is not very good.

          • mayhempk1

            8Mbps is more than enough for a simple online P2P FPS game. It’s much more likely he’s just being matched with people who live geographically far away from him.

          • prometheus59650

            8 is good enough for any mp…3 is usually the benchmark.

          • exeterman2

            I can tell you, having switched from 5 to 50, that 3 is not enough!

          • prometheus59650

            But you didn’t actually have three probably. You had more drawing on that bandwidth than just your game.

          • Juses

            Al dat metturs Es ping.

        • DEMOLITION12

          the bars don’t mean anything

      • PsychOutGaming

        mine was perfectly fine until they opened the beta, that’s when i started lagging

  • Dr. Salim

    I can tell none of the other specialist like prophet.

    • spartanelite

      Lol how

      • Kobrah

        They usually have a go at him at the beginning of the match

      • Dr. Salim

        I know that Battery, Outrider, and Nomad often question his cyborg personality in a some what negative way.

        • spartanelite

          The specialist talk to each other?

  • Kurama The Nine-Tailed Fox

    You know Call Of Duty is back when people are begging for the Beta not to end on the set date.

    • Brad

      People begged Respawn to extend Titanfall’s beta, we see how that game turned out.

      • Sol Malus

        It was also just competitive multiplayer where you’re killing bots most of the time.

        BO3 is coop campaign, zombies, multiplayer.

      • Kyle Soule

        Wasnt it next extended twice?

      • CoDforever

        people begged for titanfall beta to extend because they didnt know the full game has even less content

        • Haha true. I still play Titanfall every once and awhile. Its a nice change from cod, but not something I’d play on a daily basis.

          • MichiganerE

            I agree. While I’ve stopped playing Titanfall, it was an alright game with a lot of potential. Let’s hope that Titanfall 2 truly shows off that potential.

          • Argy

            I spoke with one of the devs and they said one of the issues with the game was EA pushed on one end while Microsoft pulled on the other to speed-up the process and so a lot of the originally intended ideas got cut from the final product and some made it back in with patches later on… which left everyone feeling a little bruised.

          • MichiganerE

            Well, let’s hope that TF2 has all those things.

          • ScOott

            Your xbox live account is just your name yh ? .. Il add you (if you don’t mind lol)

          • Yep! Add me, maybe we could play sometime. ­čśë

          • ScOott

            Yh if we ever online at the same time playing the same game il make sure I invite you! Il add later when I’m on it..

          • Sure!

        • jordanxbrookes

          I still enjoy Titanfall. Even though it lacked content, Respawn did a great job.

          • CoDforever

            I just hated how they had the balls to still charge $60

  • Best news I heard all day. I couldn’t get online this afternoon, thought I only had a few hours left. Thanks Treyarch!

  • Mick

    Coming from an xbox owner, I think this was needed. I’ve seen people on Twitch lagging in their games like crazy. It was hugly unplayable. I don’t mind, I just hope xbox gets a extra day to even the odds. But if we don’t get an extra day then I don’t care ?

    • jordanxxxbrookes

      It wasn’t hugely unplayable. It was laggy at times but not like most are saying. Most just want the beta longer so even if they couldn’t get into lobbies for 10 mins they’d say the beta needs to be longer. It’s mostly just wanting to play longer and using lag as justification.

      • Mick

        Dude, there was atleast one day where the beta was unplayable. I’ve seen people on twitch lagging like crazy. On and off lag like non stop. Sure, people want the beta to last longer, don’t we all? IMO this was the least they could do.

        • Argy

          Now my argument for this (playing devil’s advocate) is that this is the Beta… not the final version. I’d rather have lag for a day corrected during the beta over lag for a day corrected on the final product. But yeah, nice that they gave and extra day back.

  • I hope it’s like this on Xbox and PC. :/

  • Aug. 24th at 10PM PT..

    Why not have this shit rolling for at least a couple of weeks, If our feedback is SOOOOOO important?

    • UKNOW

      iTS A BETA AND IT COMING OUT ON XBOX WEDNESDAY 2 WEEKS + IS ENOUGH TIME

      • OK, IF YOU SAY SO

  • Baldmanz_RAGE

    Why doesn’t Treyarch keep it going until Xbone/PC gets theirs? It is only till Wednesday. Having fun finally after two long years!!!!

  • Munir

    is someone lagging although you have a good connection? im having this problem the whole day…

    • Jeremy Fernandez

      Your connection doesn’t matter. They are switching to dedicated servers from listen servers.

  • SuperEggBoy

    naruto4life

  • SuperEggBoy

    i like naruto

  • Diego Diniz

    Still Laggy as Hell?????

  • Andy Nguyen

    Xbox Should Be The Exact Same Date As Ps4

  • Andy Nguyen

    Ill be Pissed If They Didnt Do That To Xbox

  • TheGamerBeast

    yeah XBOX and PC players better get that 24hr extend too XD

    • Bliq

      Ps4 got it because of connectivity issues.

  • Ayy

  • Ri─Źards Jansons

    PS4>Xbox 1

  • jdc

    I just went to Costco and picked up a bunch of tissues for all of you cry babies

    • Drasadex

      lol

  • So many people talking about problems with connectivity issues.
    It’s like you guys are playing a trial version of a game that’s not coming out for a couple months, or a demo or something ­čś«
    Oh wait…

    • Jessica Because

      That kind of the point of the beta. Partly to test the load on servers. There needs to be complaints.

  • Andrew Stipcak

    Why is there even an argument over whether Xbox One and PC beta time is extended? I’m coming from PS4 and I don’t see why it matters. I’m fine with Xbox and PC being extended. It really shouldn’t matter one bit.

    • jordanxxxbrookes

      Because people like to argue and debate whats “fair” only when it directly affects them. If Xbox One and PC have lag which it probably will then they’ll extend the time…

      I mean people were on here complaining that those who didn’t pre order eventually got the chance to play beta which is actually good considering it gives more folks chance to play…The biggest benefit is that it would give us the preorder more noobs to feast on, but of course folks in COD world are so fucking selfish they’re so focused on being mad others get to play than to see the gain they get from it.

      • shantzonpoint

        Yep pretty much sums it up.

  • Jesse

    Here is why this all matters for XBOX and PC players as well: Going from Xbox to PS with Exclusive stuff is one thing that I don’t mind. Making the beta open to everyone after saying it will only be for those who preordered is another thing I actually like. But I can say that if they don’t allow everyone on XBOX and PC to play the beta for the last few days and extend it as well that will be the equivalent of the most evil stab in the back anyone can give! Especially considering it was mostly (not all but mostly) XBOX and PC players who got the franchise to this point to begin with!

    • NOVA_POLARIS

      The WAW BETA was xbox exclusive… Trust me it could be worse and Microsoft knew how to take advantage of that contract. They made psn wait a month for items in supply drops! Thats not even DLC… If Microsoft had the BETA I bet psn users would have to wait at least two weeks if not a month. Also I know for a fact they will add the extra gamemode, levels, and map to your BETA but I doubt they will extend it. The reason the one on psn was extended was because we had lag so bad we couldn’t even play for two days and the servers went off completely for a few hours. So unless that happens on the xbox BETA I don’t think it will be extended.

  • Tricky VIk

    “Well, I hope everyone is having fun with the beta, sadly I couldn’t play it but I bet it was amazing, keep going on strong comrades.”

    EDIT: “Happy birthday to me.”

  • dankasdust

    Activision Support for the beta has been updated. Xb1 & pc users will receive emails with beta tokens starting at 4pm.

    • Mini Chimis

      So we can download the beta one when we receive the code and pay it at 12 pm put?
