David Vonderhaar has confirmed on Twitter that there will be character customization in Black Ops 3 mutliplayer, and he has teased a look at the different parts of the character we can customize.


To confirm, there is character customization in both campagin and multiplayer in Black Ops 3.

    Im gonna be one of the few here who actually wants supply drops, fight me

    • Not going to fight you, but why? Do you not enjoy earning things?

      • DespicableDan

        Earning what exactly, if your implying enjoying suppy drops means I only use op guns that others cant obtain fine by me, I used asm1 magnitude literally all game in S&D/Ranked play and had most success with it over any “OP” gun you get from supply drops

        • I’m saying grinding challenges to earn certain things. Not randomly rewarded for putting in the disc.

  • Fuck-Off

    When you guys think we will can pre-load it?

    • Daniel

      later today/tomorrow

    • Yankeephil

      November 3rd/4th. They usually pre-load 72 hours prior

      • Felipe Rios

        Wasn’t there about a week in advance for AW? If i remember correctly that how it was for Xbox at least.

        • Yankeephil

          I’m not really sure, I didn’t pre-order the AW digital edition, but I setup my PS4 to autodownload so games I pre-order now download whenever they are available. And the PS4 store says you can expect it to be downloaded on November 4th

  • They had confirmed this quiet awhile ago I believe. At least we are able to see an image of what it’ll look like. At least to an extent.

    • RdJokr

      People need to be reminded every once in a while, seeing as the guy Vahn replied to did complain about not having customization in MP (which is untrue, of course).

      Though of course, this gives us a more detailed look as to how much we can customize. I thought it’s kinda weird that you have to manually select a gun to be showcased, rather than the gun changing based on the class you select. Though I guess that would require too much loading, as it was evident in Ghosts and AW.

      I do wonder how we’ll be able to do taunts though. Kinda a weird feature to have in a multiplayer FPS game if you ask me, but I’m interested in seeing how it works. Can’t imagine that you’d just stand there taunting your enemies while they unload your guns at you.

      • Kurama The Nine-Tailed Fox

        Taunts will probably be used in Campaign.

        • RdJokr

          … This is the multiplayer customization menu being shown, dude. And we’ve already seen the Campaign customization menu. No taunts there.

          • Kurama The Nine-Tailed Fox

            If you look at the picture the Taunts and Gestures tab is blacked out in comparison to the other customization tabs above it… I’d say it’s clearly unavailable to use in Multiplayer.

          • RdJokr

            Or it’s blacked out because you need to reach a certain rank to use it. I don’t see why they would put the option in MP if you can’t even use it, that’s oxymoron.

      • Drasadex

        I think the taunts are for the end of the matches. Like when they show the top 3 scorers.

  • LovekillerX

    Woohoo! I loved character customization in AW and I’m sure I’m going to love it in Black Ops 3 too! 🙂

  • Daniel

    We know this since april

    • Choppabro2psn

      Not really. It’s was stated they were not focusing on character customization and were on gun customization since you can actually see your gun.

  • Dangelo95

    The black ops 3 menus just look physically appealing though it’s not a necessity to how the game is, its just makes the over al experience a whole lot better

    • Every descent game has a menu lol

      • Dangelo95

        No shit… I said they look appealing which means nice to look at and aren’t shitty looking

  • From the screenshot, I’m guessing the customization is limited to helmets and body armor. I don’t see things like gloves, boots, eyewear, pants, or shirts.

    • Bare in mind, that that’s for the campaign.

    • RdJokr

      Already been confirmed ages ago by Vahn. He said those options are too subtle, and don’t provide enough uniqueness to the Specialists.

  • Nugsii

    TAUNTS AND GESTURES?!?!?

  • Stefan Lang

    Cant wait to try out the gunsmith

  • This was confirmed in the multiplayer beta trailer ages ago…

  • Guywithbrains

    Taunts? Sounds great and different.

  • GL

    Brace yourself there s Supply drop coming for Money

    • ScOott

      Who cares man, it’s going to be all cosmetic #TheWayItShouldOfBeenDone.

      • MichiganerE

        There shouldn’t be any to begin with.

        • ScOott

          Why ? I wouldn’t mind them if it’s going to be cosmetic, keeps things fresh ..

          • MichiganerE

            Because we already bought the game, and in some cases, the DLC and season passes. Any form of micro-transactions should only be cosmetic and only in mobile games.

          • ScOott

            But you don’t have to buy them, I’m pretty sure u will be able to earn this stuff like A.W .. Just depends how lucky u are, as long as things don’t get held back from disk I don’t see why everyone bitches about micro dlc

            What A.W did with zombies was wrong, even if ur one of them people who think they added it just because of the fan back lash.. What shadow of Mordor did was wrong, having an uncomplete story, even what resident evil and hitman are doing is wrong releasing unfinished games and calling them “episodes”

            So much wrong with the gaming industry micro DLC is not one of them, effects nobody what so ever .. The game is still complete with out it..

          • MichiganerE

            Micro-transactions are a problem. It doesn’t matter if they’re optional, they shouldn’t be in the game at all.

          • RdJokr

            Microtransactions exist only because there’s a demand for it. And in competitive industries like gaming, you either supply the demand or you get overthrown by your rival companies. You want microtransactions to cease to exist? Tell that to the people who support it.

          • just drank bleach

            If iw or treyarch follow what AW did, you might as well name this title something else, all these gimmicky, stupid outfits are just plain dumb. I’m afraid Activision knows that people will buy stupid outfits to maximize profts, I get it, but having all these outfits just make your game very childish.

          • RdJokr

            I think we’re still way too early to be worrying about what sort of micro-DLC they’re gonna try to cramp into this game. For all we know, they might just go with gun camos and possibly special themed Gunsmith variants.

            But then again, it is Activision we’re talking about. So all I can say is, just enjoy the game for what it is. And don’t support the gimmicky stuff if you don’t like it.

          • just drank bleach

            Exactly, it is Activision, there’ll be something coming with the dlc’s tho, see what complains will come about with them.

          • jordanxxxbrookes

            Wow, a rational and fairly objective viewpoint that is also a solution? Nice.

            You sure this isn’t anti consumerist and doesn’t ruin gaming?

            How can we be sure you don’t support Activision ‘s evil ways? Actually maybe since you aren’t opposed to micro DLC passionately you must be a fan of sweatshops, North Korea and a communist.

            Did I do it right Brady?

          • ToonToons22

            Calm down. He was just giving his opinion. If you disagree with him, that’s fine, but you didn’t have to be that way with him. What ever happened to “I respectfully disagree with you?”

          • jordanxxxbrookes

            I was using sarcasm towards rdjokr. If you’re going to butt in at least do it correctly.

            This is the person who doesn’t respect opinions:

            https://disqus.com/by/sillibk2/

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Just leave. Seriously, you’re malicious.

          • jordanxxxbrookes

            Your malicious to the Disqus network.

            Look at all your posts and how all you do is argue with people and try to make your selfish opinions any more than what they are.

            “SBMM is anti consumerism”
            “Microsoft buying Havok ruins gaming”
            “Micro DLC ruins gaming”
            “Why are you justifying corporate greed”

            You’re turning gaming convos into arguments and basically no one responds to you unless it’s calling you out.

            You clearly spend a lot of time on forums seeing as how you passionately accuse people if being puppets, fanboys or ignorant no matter what the actual article is about. How about trying actual dialogue and hear other people out. The opposite of your opinion doesn’t automatically equal evil loving, gaming ruining stances.

            You piece of shit.

          • ScOott

            Lol abit more aggressive than I would of been, but pretty much hit the nail on the head everytime .. Go guest account jordan!

          • Michael:Bulletclub

            Wouldn’t suprise me if that sock account was you.

          • ScOott

            Lol.. If I got something to say, I have no problem saying it on my account..

            Plus if I was sad enough to do such a thing, I’d have bigger fish to fry than Brady ..

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            You’re*. I know your objective is to get a reaction out of be and be an asshole but you’re not helping anybody by backseat moderating the site. You can’t silence me.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Because he’s a sock account troll. The point of his comments are to upset everyone.

          • jordanxxxbrookes

            Point of my comments is to expose you for the drama queen bitch you are.

            Don’t misrepresent my comments like you try everyone else you dramatic fucking weirdo.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            I’m representing your comments correctly. Look at your username. You aren’t exposing anybody but yourself.

          • jordanxxxbrookes

            I’d expose my penis to piss in your mouth you piece of garbage.

            The others here just ignore you, put you in place like RDJokr and Scott does, or they bite their tongue to not be rude /banned.

            So I’ll speak for them, you’re a piece of shit that doesn’t wanna do anything more than demean people’s opinions, over exaggerate the impact of yours and turn every light hearted video game article into more than what it is.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Lmao you must be pro-censorship.

          • jordanxxxbrookes

            No, just anti some douchebag who goes around trying to demean people for having opinions and trying to over state their opinion.

            All you do is talk shit to people. You begging mods because you get attacked but just look at all the hypocritical things you say and accuse people of being shills, fanboys or worse. All because they don’t share your hatred of “the man” or your infatuation with rubbing your mangina with dualshock controllers.

            Xbox, Ps4 and especially PC are wonderful platforms with pros and cons. All you want to do is make your opinion more impactful than it is.

            You’re a bigger nuisance to this network than anyone. You’re a piece of shit.

            I’m definitely not for censorship, I want you to keep saying dumb shit and attacking people. 21 years old debating gaming ethics like it’s a sport or best rockband aka something normal people debate.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Yes, how dare I share my feelings on the internet? You think I’m here to appease you? Again, I’ll use your logic. Don’t like it, then stop going to the site.

          • JacobFinleyJr

            Do you even know that joker? He almost acts as if he is either your brother or worst enemy. Is this comment section always like this?

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Only from him. He’s a good person I’m sure, and I understand his mindset. The comments section is usually full of harmless Dolan talk.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            “Drama queen” LMAO

          • Kobrah

            But the only person he seems to be upsetting is you :/

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            You don’t have any idea if he’s upsetting me. You don’t know me. The comments are too stupid to upset me. It doesn’t matter to you because you don’t reply to him.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Stop butting in to things you know nothing about. Your presence here was never even elaborated. All you do is spread ignorance.

          • jordanxxxbrookes

            I spread how much of a piece if shit you are.

            Look at how many articles you’re in just bitching about big companies like that’s original or even relevant in a damn video game article.

            Meanwhile, you’re sticking your needle dick in your PS4’s usb slots.

            You should’ve left me alone, instead you thought snitching to mods would be ok.

            The passion you have for bitching about companies that you still pour money into pales in comparison to the passion I have exposing you…At least during work hours.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            I’m allowed to post my opinion. I don’t care what you think. I’ll keep doing it.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            You know what condones it? YouTubers. The same people that are invited by Activision to events.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            There are many reasons why DLC exists. All we can do is speculate about it. All I know is that in comparison to other games, Call of Duty’s budget is ten times most AAA’s. It could be to profit more because of that fact. Or they just want to profit more in general. A lot of us speculate that they take out the content for the DLC on launch, and everything is already made, but nobody has evidence for that. In fact, there is probably evidence against that claim.

            I don’t know how we can change the gaming ecosystem. DLC has gone from expansion packs (they’re huge; damn-near sequels, you know, like Destiny and The Witcher 3?) to just a few maps for $20 that most-likely barely costed them a dime (I don’t claim to know that for a fact, though, again, it’s just speculation).

          • Jessica Because

            “Tell that to the people who support it.”

            I think that’s what he was trying to do. Correct me if I’m wrong.

          • RdJokr

            That wasn’t meant to be serious. Because somewhere out there, there will always be people who feel the need to spend in some microtransactions.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            “You don’t have to buy them” justifies nothing. You are making absolutely no sense.

          • jordanxxxbrookes

            How does that not make sense?

            They are optional to buy. If you are against it then vote with your wallet.

            If you are for it or just maybe indifferent LIKE A NORMAL HUMAN BEING then you can purchase.

            What doesn’t make sense is why you’re all over the Disqus network passionately trying to turn every article’s comment section into some fucking pro vs anti corporation debate. Did some big corporation like McDonalds fire you ir something? You’re way too invested in this shit.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            “They are optional to buy” still doesn’t justify the fact that they even exist. “Voting with my wallet” is something I already do, and it won’t make a difference. I’m aware that they’re here to stay, that doesn’t mean that their existence is justified and can be excused.

            Normal human beings don’t excuse and damage control something that should not exist.

            Corporations deserve ridicule, especially the worst ones. Maybe I should use ways of logic of people with your mindset: Don’t like it? Don’t read my comments.

          • jordanxxxbrookes

            Oh lord here we go again. No one is damage controlling anything.

            Being indifferent towards DLC doesn’t seem nearly as bad as you spamming this entire network with all these anti evil corporation stances regardless of the article.

            You are just constantly bitching and accusing everyone else who doesn’t bitch as supporting evil doers which is ridiculous.

            If this was one or a few articles I’d understand. You are literally only in articles in Disqus trying to accuse everyone of being a fanboy or pro evil. Like wtf. You probably use Windows or Mac software so quit acting like you’re some freedom fighter in a fucking COD article.

            While your begging mods to ban, they need to ban your bitter ass. You are spamming every article with this overly preachy bullshit

            You’ve still yet to explain how it RUINS gaming. You’re a hyperbolic, feminine piece of shit.

            There is plenty of gray area between justifying evil greed and indifference you stupid bitch.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Yes, you’re damage controlling. You’re justifying an anti-consumer business tactic for no reason other than a poor one such as “it’s optional!”.

            Corporations deserve ridicule. If you disagree, then you’re a corporate sheep. What I do isn’t better than corporations abusing DLC? You’re fucking deluded.

            No, justifying everything that a corporation does is ridiculous. Making a sock account troll of someone with a different opinion than you is ridiculous.

            You don’t know me. My presence shouldn’t matter to you. Don’t like it? Get off the site. It’s gaming; you’ll see negativity, because we are the most vocal community on the internet. I’m not trying to be a “freedom fighter”, I’m simply stating my opinion and my reasoning for the logicality behind said opinions. The fact that they bother you is questionable, to say the least.

            You question why I want you banned? You just proved my reasoning. You need help.

          • jordanxxxbrookes

            You’ve shared this opinion how many times though?

            We get it, Microsoft is the devil. Last Gen needs to die already.

            This opinion you have isn’t new and all you do is find ways to keep saying it. No one here is as emotionally invested in corporations the way you are. Doesn’t mean we are pro companies, simply that we buy the games we want and have fun on our consoles. You constantly need to say this same shit over and over.

            It’s blatantly obvious most people here don’t really agree with your condescending attitude. There could be a COD Endowment article and you’d turn it from soldiers to how a company is evil.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            You can’t speak for anybody.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            You have no point nor any valid reasoning whatsoever.

          • JacobFinleyJr

            Another guy? Man, what is going on here?

          • Ak74u

            Your right micro DLC is not a problem or wrong but when there’s gambling or no direct way to get what you want that is where there is a problem (this is why supply drops were unfair)

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Yes, they are a problem, and they are wrong. This isn’t a F2P game, so there’s no logical justification anyone can give towards DLC.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Why justify what a company does? You did it for Microsoft, now you’re doing it for Activision? Things like this ruins gaming.

          • ScOott

            Not for me it doesn’t .. I brought nearly all gun camos for bo2.. Like I said keeps the game fresh.. I’m not on a mad campagin to hate every company going, u seem to have a personal vendetta towards most business that make money :-s .. I’m a little more chilled out, why hate a anything that hasn’t directly done anything to you ? It seems a bit strange to me… If u don’t like micro dlc don’t buy it, and let people who don’t give a fuck buy the dlc they want .. Just my opinion ..

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Oh, so they’re justified because they want to make money? Sickening. People with your mindset prove my point. “Don’t like it don’t buy it” nonsense doesn’t work. It never has. Using your same mindset, don’t like my comments, don’t read them. Don’t reply to them. It doesn’t work.

          • JacobFinleyJr

            Too much micro DLC does make me feel dirty too.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            I just don’t feel that they’re not right in a non-F2P game. I believe there should be boundaries to DLC, because expansions (that are like entirely new experiences to the point where you’re essentially playing a sequel) are perfectly fine.

          • ScOott

            But if I had that major issue with u, I would have the same mind set.. I have no problem with u, Ur pretty kewl when ur not banging on about Dlc and Microsoft.. so ur point is invalid

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            I’m not here to please anybody, I’m here to state my opinions, whether anybody likes it or not. I think my claims about the gaming industry are valid. Not factual, but I feel that the reasoning [validity] isn’t bad, personally.

          • jordanxxxbrookes

            It doesn’t ruin shit you fucking weirdo.

            I understand the idea that microtransactions are more for the benefit of companies like Activision. I get it’s even shittier the way AW implemented it.

            That being said micro dlc doesn’t fucking ruin gaming.

            You seriously only come here to just spew anti corporate stances and over state how important things are or are not.

            It’s a fucking customization article and here you are LOOKING for people to accuse of being pro evil corporation like stfu. You’re the only one that cares about corporations which is why you always turn the topic into some hyperbole

            It’s COD news site, no need to constantly spew this “Stop supporting the man” rhetoric.

            Only thing worse than a legit fanboy is a bitter pos like you acting like Microsoft or any company for that matter killed your dog. Micro DLC is shitty but in no way does it ruin gaming. Stfu you drama queen bitch.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            You’re a moron. “Micro-DLC doesn’t ruin gaming”, yet you have no valid reason to back that stupid statement up. It’s objective that they’re the epitome of greed. I understand F2P games do it because games have budgets no matter what, but a company asking $2 for a Rubber Ducky camo on top of paying $60 is fucking greed. What more do you need to convince you? EA and Ubisoft’s practices?

          • jordanxxxbrookes

            You’re a real piece of shit.

            You’re asking for factual proof as to why micro dlc doesn’t ruin gaming?

            Umm, maybe the fact that Capcom, Ubisoft, EA and Activision have done far more money grabbing dlc tactics and gaming is still flourishing especially your precious Playstation brand.

            Your opinion is just that, your opinion. Constantly spamming every Disqus network article and trying to demean people doesn’t make it any more valid.

            Quit asking for facts in a drama queen stance especially since facts aren’t in your favor. COD isn’t in your top 100 franchises anyway, right?

            Only thing ruined will be what’s left of your shitty rep you worthless piece of shit.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            For stating the truth? I’m a piece of shit for being logical and spreading
            common sense? Whatever makes you sleep at night.

            How is that factual proof? THIS is factual proof:

            It’s factual that microtransactions ruins the gaming market. You can’t just make simple statements. Those sort of claims require evidence.

            PlayStation is my preferred brand over Xbox, but I don’t have any loyalty towards it. Nothing has proven that ridiculous assumption. Again, you don’t know me.

            Doesn’t mean you instigate it. I can post my opinion in a comments section. Get over it and move on with your business and quit getting into mine.

            If facts aren’t in my favor, then they aren’t in yours, either, dingus.

            Your words hurt me so much that I forgot to be phased. I don’t care about my reputation on the internet. I’m not a keyboard warrior like you.

            Posting opinion articles from gaming sites is the equivalent of someone citing Cosmo, Women’s Health and Us Weekly while fighting for gender equality. Which at least us a more noble cause than some geeks mad at gaming company.

            I think non story add on DLC is a money grab. What Activision did with AW is one of the most obvious money grabs I’ve ever seen.

            Unlike you, a lot of us don’t buy the bullshit and move on. There is nothing illegal about them doing it nor does it actually literally ruin gaming.

            I could factually prove that pirating is hurting the music business but there is no way to factually prove shitty pop music is hurting the music business.

            DLC isn’t in the best interest of the gamer. As long as you don’t pay them whatever $1.99 they charge you can move on.

            I love MKX but I refused to buy Season Pass. Difference is my moral victory came from not buying it NOT from spamming comment sections with anti WB rhetoric.

            No one here will legit defend DLC. It’s cheap enough to maybe spend $1.99 if a cool camo came out but also not hurting me if I don’t buy it. If gaming was actually ruined we wouldn’t see so many awesome games.

            Cut down on the hyperbole and chill the fuck out.

            B-B-But it’s a business! It doesn’t ruin gaming! ASD’s are optional, quit bitching!

            Doesn’t justify the behavior, nor does it mean that I can’t share my opinion.
            Illegality isn’t my point. You want to provide evidence for your claims as to why they don’t? You’re the one with the extraordinary claims. I’ll wait.

            Awful analogy. You’re comparing apples to oranges. It’s funny how you always use Pop Music as an example for your statements. Do you have some sort of weird fetish or obsession towards/over Taylor Swift?

            Doesn’t justify them being in the game in the first place. They ruin the games because people eat them up and pay for them over and over again. THAT *factually* ruins the industry, whether you like it or not.

            I’m spamming? K, hypocrite. Keep bitching at me whilst you do the exact same thing you’re doing to insult me. Run along, now. You’re an awful troll.

          • Right, because how dare companies compete for our attention.

            1) Being such a whiney keyboard warrior
            And
            2) why everything a gaming company does seems to “ruin gaming”.
            And i want an actual reason, not a keyboard warrior’s opinion.

          • jordanxxxbrookes

            Good luck getting a response.

            He’s more likely to call you a fanboy or argue that since you aren’t up in arms about this you support evil corporations and are doing damage control.

            To him a strange amount of hatred for Microsoft or big companies(other than Sony) is normal and being indifferent makes you a fanboy justifying corporate greed and the destruction of video game industry. It’s almost like he is just waiting for his next chance to turn his opinion into the gospel.

          • Yet he fails to understand, or quite frankly care, the business side of the industry.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            How dare people justify what those companies have to go to such lengths to be so competitive. Consumers can have a preference. They just can’t excuse what the brand they supported do. However, there IS validity in defending certain things. It really depends.

            1) I’m not here to insult others. I respect and value everyone’s opinion. The point of a comments section is to state your feelings if you have a certain disagreement. That’s the point. Not for us to be some sort of fanboy. And I’m not a keyboard warrior. Where have you come to that conclusion? Elaboration is appreciated.

            2) I never said that in such context. It’s unjustifiable to defend a company for what they’re doing. And it’s simple. Companies like Microsoft don’t make business decisions to simply make profit. They want control. I’m talking companies worth hundreds of billions, like Microsoft and Apple. Activision, EA, and Ubisoft doing bullshit like always online and full-price charging for such games ruins gaming. Why? Because they condone other companies to do it. For them to “compete.” So, in all due respect, excuse me, for liking something and doing what’s right.

          • So wait, having to have a game be always online and charging $60 for games “ruins” gaming? Does having a whatevercompany.com website to tie their game to ruin it? What about releasing game soundtracks? Christ on a fucking stick you are impossible to comprehend..

            Fuck it, i’m just gonna sit back and laugh at your stupid opinion and wait for gaming to be “ruined”.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Your statements are illogical and you took my point completely out of context. Absolutely insulting.

            Yes, it ruins gaming. How does it not? They condone it. It’s not like they only do it once and never do it again, and they were mere examples. You said provide valid reasoning, and I did. I will re-iterate. It is illogical to justify what a corporation does by saying it’s to compete with other corporations, and absolutely asinine. You haven’t even provided elaboration nor valid reasoning for YOUR statements. Why is my opinion “stupid”, and why is that validated? It’s difficult to comprehend corporate greed, I know, but that doesn’t excuse you being naive towards my points. As if it totally makes sense for me to just excuse what companies like EA does because it’s a “business.” DLC out the ass, online passes, non-value [unjustified full price], always online, half-assery, Konami-like situations, etc. Mainly mainstream third party companies like Konami and gigantic first party corporations like Microsoft.

            You can use personal insults, if you want. You’re just being hypocritical, at this point. You bitch at me for having a negative opinion and arguing with others, yet you are instigating further arguments by replying to me. Take your own advice; if you don’t like what I have to say, then don’t read my comments. If you don’t like how gamers bitch about Call of Duty, then don’t come to this website. Then again, it’s only fair and logical if you say that to me, right?

            I have every right to do so in a comments section, where the point is to converse and disagree with others. You say I argue with everyone? As long as I am not aggressive, then it is a non-issue. I’m not resorting to personal attacks and trolling, like you.

            I’m spamming? In a comments section, with fair points? Ridiculous.

            You’re*. Make me.

          • While i try to comprehend your “reasoning” let me ask you this, how do you expect a video game company or corporation or whatever “evil thing” you want to preach about to make money? If you could have things your way, what would you do?
            Because if it’s the way i think it is, then you have no understanding of how businesses work.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            I’ll admit that I have no degree in business, but that doesn’t excuse anything. I don’t mind companies making money. I take issue with big corporations and what THEY have to do in terms of business. “It’s a business” or “you don’t understand how business works” doesn’t justify “let’s excuse a company for misleading gamers about Augmented Reality at a public convention”, for example. Certain business decisions DO ruin gaming, such as, to re-iterate, microtransactions, or timed exclusivity, for example. Anti-consumer practices do ruin gaming. If that’s not factual, then what is? So every single negatively-impacted decision that a corporation like Microsoft makes is justified because it’s a business? You’re not making a whole lot of sense.

          • I’m still waiting for an example of how gaming is being ruined, and less of you just saying it is because that’s what you believe, cause all i’m hearing is “MY NAME’S BRADY I’M RIGHT YOU’RE WRONG”.
            I mean, for example, how is it that gaming is being ruined by, for example, having Destiny sell new dance moves for your characters (which is actually happeneing soon, in case no one heard)? By Call of Duty selling brand new gun camos? By Need For Speed or The Crew selling brand new car types for people to race with? By Assassin’s Creed selling unique new outfits to wear during your single player experience?

          • jordanxxxbrookes

            Selling dance moves? Wow that is terrible.

            He is just screaming his opinion over and over. A lot of people share the opinion micro dlc is to take more money from consumers.

            He hates Microsoft and Activision and every big company so his opinion that many share is extreme because he is biased.

            Even as you say it’s just a business you probably don’t condone them doing things like micro dlc. You probably just don’t buy the shit or at least find more appropriate places to bitch about it.

            His opinion isn’t original and I bet most COD gamers would agree micro dlc is a money grab. We are not willing to say it is ruining gaming because it’s not factually proven. We can still play all thr games we love, price of games are the same and these things are optional.

            He could easily say micro dlc amd Activision is evil and be correct. Instead he wants to constantly turn every article into this and accuse anyone of not being passionate against it like him of being pro evil company, a fanboy or making no sense.

            It’s like dude, yes we don’t like the shit that is why we keep our money, play games and move on. He has an obsession with talking about this 1st world problem daily. Like go fight for Walmart workers who get shitty pay

          • Me personally, i don’t mind micro dlc if it’s totally optional content, ie dance moves or weapon camos.
            Perfect example, back when Black Ops 2 came out with the Weaponized 115 camo? I was all over that, seeing how much i was playing Origins at the time.
            And i freaking love the random dance moves in Destiny, so i can’t personally wait to see what new kinds of weird dances i can randomly bust out in the midst of my raids.
            All in all i don’t DLC as evil period, especially if a game i’m investing a ton of time in is coming out with new content, ie CoD, Witcher 3, Destiny, Borderlands, etc. It’s more game for my game, and if i’m already investing a ton of time into a game i love, why not add more time to it?

          • jordanxxxbrookes

            I agree with bitch boy’s stance of it being just to generate more money for companies who don’t have gamers best interest. However any adult knows how businesses are run but we have option to not contribute.

            I agree with you saying it’s harmless and you enjoy it.

            Problem is bitch boy feels his opinion is more valid so he over exaggerates how DLC affects gamers with no actual facts showing it is hurting anything more than perception. A lot of us hated last two COD games but our hatred doesn’t stop the games from being successful relative to pretty much every other gaming franchise.

            Bitch boy also says COD isn’t in his top 100 franchises which is more hyperbole.

            He takes his bias opinion, adds superlatives, exaggerates impact and then calls those who don’t fully agree of being shills, damage control, fanboys at best. Morons, idiots, retards,non sense at worst . He has been doing this for probably year, definitely months all while saying there is no skill difference in video games and dick sucking Sony. Which is ok but still.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            We’re talking about games with a $60 price tag in front of them. If these games were F2P it’d make more sense, but even then, it impacts gaming negatively. Factually speaking, DLC ruined gaming by having these third party publishers taking content out of a game and putting said content behind a paywall. It affects the business models of third party gaming in its entirety. If Activision, EA, Ubisoft, and Capcom didn’t abuse the business around DLC, then Konami probably wouldn’t have put those microtransactions in Phantom Pain, now, would they?

            Again, by your logic, everything is justified because “it’s a business.” Yeah, businesses that are taking content out of games at launch, regardless of said games not even having the $60 justified through their content. Titanfall ring a bell? Expansion Packs are fine for obvious reasons. Microtransactions and very minute quantities of maps are not.

          • This all sounds like a whole lot of perception dude. Do you have proof that every company you mentioned taking content out of games?
            And if video games weren’t priced at $60, while i’m thinking about it, then what should they priced at? Because the $60 price tag is more than the game’s content itself, you do realize that right? It’s the hours of coding. The late night/early morning meetings viewing concept art and pitching ideas. It’s going over pain-staking details of what things in the game sound like. It’s hiring the proper voice actors go bring your characters to life. It’s the long hours if motion capture, creating unique scenes that help tell stories within a game.
            So i’ll ask again, what should all of that work be priced at then, Mr. “My Views Are Right And If You Don’t Agree With Me You’re Wrong”?

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Capcom factually took content out of its games and put them into DLC. This has been a known thing for years. The practice is called “on-disc DLC.” http://www.cinemablend.com/games/Capcom-Gets-Busted-Disc-DLC-Discovered-Street-Fighter-X-Tekken-40114.html

            Value is subjective. I’ll offer my personal stances on it, because it’s all I CAN offer. The pricing of anything is determined by its budget. If it’s a AAA game that’s $60, then it has a big budget. If it’s lower than $40, then it’s most likely a low-budgeted Independent game. As for gaming and its price tags for AAA titles, well, they have to be justified through content. Titanfall wasn’t deserving of $60 because it didn’t offer much in the content department. IMO, fully-priced Multiplayer-based games don’t deserve the $60 price tag, because the content is not justified. The Order 1886 is criticized for being $60. Everybody knows damn well that that game took a lot of effort, and many man-hours, but its content was not justified, despite its budget. For a game’s $60 to be justified, imo, it needs the budget, and the content to back it up. But that’s just my opinion, you can disagree.

            Let me know when I said “My Views Are Right And If You Don’t Agree With Me You’re Wrong”, because I’m simply stating my opinion in a comments section. You’re getting assumptions out of nowhere, and it is nonsense.

          • See it’s fun to use an opinion, and not be an overly preachy jerk.

            In my opinion, any game that takes long hours of man power, content or not, needs a $60 price tag to make money, if it’s coming with backing from a big publisher like Activision, for example. And by content, i mean more than just what we play. It’s a simple aspect of business, but any one should know that as a part of your budget, hiring people and paying your employees is a veeeerry important aspect of where your money goes. Paying people to code your game, to do motion capture, to voice act, to write a story, to draw up concept art, to do press releases, to dream up ads of all formats, to work on sound design, to compose a soundtrack, to aquire the rights to already liscenced songs for whatever reason.
            So while games like Titanfall, for example, leave salty people like you feeling you were robbed of money, think about how much work goes into a game like that. Think about the hours of detail the artists spent bringing every aspect of that world to life. Think about the hours of coding that were spent making all the mechanics in that game a reality. Think about the hours of voice acting that went into every piece of dialouge. How would you feel if you were someone who worked on a game like that and someone told you that your game wasn’t worthy of the $60 price tag it shipped with?

            See now THIS is a civil conversation. Do this more and i’m sure less people would hate you.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            I wasn’t being “an overly preachy jerk”, care to elaborate?

            Why do you think people hate me? I have no clue where you’ve drawn that conclusion. You sound ignorant saying these 2 nonsensical things. I can’t stand people who say things to just say them, instead of elaborating their point. I think you’re wrong, but that’s just me. Even then, I couldn’t care less what anybody on the internet thinks about me. I’m just here to post my opinion and attempt to use logic and be intelligent.

            The effort put into a game has no affect on me. When I buy a game, I know what the case is. Thing is, is that that has nothing to do with its price tag. It’s only $60 because of the fact that they’re AAA games (high budget). Putting some work in a game, in which is standardized work, doesn’t justify greed, and anti-consumer business practices. As for Titanfall, I’m sure that Indie developers have put in the same work before, but asked less than $20, which make your points irrelevant.

          • “It’s only $60 because of the fact that they’re AAA games”.

            And do you know what’s a part of the high budget dude? All those things i just mentioned are a part of it, standard practices or not. The liscensing of songs is another good one for example. You know how much money Activision has had to dish out for their games over the oast couple years as a PART of the budgets for their games?
            Kevins Spacey isn’t cheap. Acquiring the rights to not one, but TWO Led Zepplin tracks? Outrageously expensive. The actors they’ve hired for Black Ops 3? Garauntee you none of them come cheap. The rights to a song by The Rolling Stones? Expensive as hell.
            All of these things i’ve mentioned may be “standardized practices”, but that doesn’t mean a high budget game can’t ask for a $60 price tag and ask you if you want to buy some extra content for your game to go with it somewhere down the line, wether it be multiplayer maps, story expansions, new costumes or dance moves.

            Like seriously you don’t get tired of saying these same things?

            It’s not so much that you have these opinions as much as you feeling the need to constantly turn every topic into this same discussion. You still play Activision games so your mostly just talking shit yet playing COD still.

            You also just try and demean everyone’s opinion.

            Every time you disagree with something you say it makes no sense.

            It makes perfect sense why someone who comes to a charlieintel article would be somewhat indifferent towards Activision and Microsoft business practices.

            What doesn’t make sense is why for months and months you’re still talking about it. You are like a televangelist at this point.

            We get it, Micro DLC ruins gaming. You ruin any article your biased ass comes in. I will ruin you.

            Also you said earlier you don’t have facts but strong case as to ruining gaming. So don’t come here now saying facts.

            Sort of like saying you don’t wanna insult people and respect opinions when you don’t.

            Your main problem is that although you have intelligence and some points you asd so much bias to what you’re saying.

            Season Passes amd Micro DLC is a money grab and is absolutely a way to make more money. It’s shitty because it’s completed content behind paywalls.

            If you just made that type of opinion like ONCE A WEEK instead of per day you’d be ok.

            You don’t wanna do that. You eant to act as of gaming is ruined and use concepts like anti consumerism to bolster your argument AND then accuse people of being pro evil business even of they agree it’s wrong but not willing to say it’s criminal.

            That is why you’re a bitch. Hopefully when you business takes off you don’t change all these opinions the minute a million dollars comes.

            I think the better you do, the higher chance you should have of getting something good.

          • Stealthninja808

            I agree, it a about time they start rewarding players for their skill and dedication.

    • Treyarch already stated a long time ago there’d be no Supply Drops in Black Ops 3.

      • ScOott

        No I’m sure they said they would be back, just named a different thing, and just cosmetic stuff.. And they stressed it wasn’t supply drops to make sure people knew it wouldn’t be the same as A.W

    • Sanik Teh Hedgehag

      Id love it to be kinda like AW but not for money more like a COD points type RNG thing or even a random drop kinda like tf2 And what i meant by cod points i meant kinda like HS packs in a way where u get random clothing idk id like that

    • GR3Y_B1RD

      Hopefully not…or at least not for Money but im sure that you will be able to buy items for customization

    • D3ADWANTED 25

      If its apparel like the ones from CSGO and has no impacts towards the actual gameplay then im fine. But if it does return then here comes the death threats

    “I like the cosmetics, it makes me feel distinct among others, that way when I terrorize, they’ll remember me by ‘that one player with that one outfit’, on a side note, it’s be nice to let them apply the paint job feature to our armor, that’d end DLC outfits.”

    • Guywithbrains

      Running soldier with weed outfit. Pretty dope!

      • One Russian’s Revenge

          Exactly my comrade.

            “Added an edit.”

          • Guywithbrains

            Also in addition I want to say that I like idea of outfits but there has to be limit where it is cool and where it is stupid. For example weed outfit or some outfit with rainbow colors may not be so great ideas to battlefield after all.

          • One Russian’s Revenge

            “I see it like this, rainbow outfit = easier to spot, weed outfit = I dunno, but all in all it’s nice to have the creativeness, but anything like that should have to be sent to like the moderators to see if it is approved for usage and then let them run around in there out, at least it seems good in my eyes, also so the toxic players don’t ruin the game always with dick armor.”

  • lunator100hd .

    I hust want the option to have male characters instead of females, foe example i love the archer ability but i cant stand be the chick who use it? Can i have a male option for every ability pls?

    • One Russian’s Revenge

      “Sounds fair, hopefully they implemented it.”

    • RdJokr

      Yeah, good luck with that. If you want such an option, then Treyarch would have to create new opposite gender models for each Specialist, then have new voice actors go in and do the voice for them as well. Way too costly at this point. Not gonna happen.

      Don’t let Tumblr hear you say that.

  • Thomas the TankSwag

    This confirms that black ops 3 will not feel like war like AW because everyone will wear bright pink, glow in the dark clothes and not look like real soldiers. Thank you, shitty community, as a potentially good game has now been ruined.

    • One Russian’s Revenge

      “Maybe ruined for you, but c’mon we all know you’ll buy it, lighten up and have fun, just don’t customize yourself and whatnot, we just need a stricter ban hammer and we’re good to go.”

      • Thomas the TankSwag

        If every single outfit is war coloured, they itll be fine, but everyone knows that theres going to be bright paid for outfits to please all the children who buy the game.

        • One Russian’s Revenge

          “Meh, hopefully they don’t come out with that and let us use the paint job feature instead.”

          • Thomas the TankSwag

            Again, if they use the paintshop feature they should limit it to black, grey, navy blue and darker greens because there’d be even more bright outfits and penis covered outfits with the paintshop feature

          • One Russian’s Revenge

            “Stricter ban hammer, but it’s part of the creativity, again to each their own, have a nice day.”

    • Stefan Lang

      Isnt that a good thing? Lol. Just think about it, you’re in a dark room and some kid is camping in his glow in the dark outfit. Beneficial. But tbh, I dont think they’ll go as far as SHG did with the clothing items.

    • Choppabro2psn

      Pffft AW felt like war with luchadors and clowns running around knifing each other. Please…

      • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

        He implied that AW didn’t feel like war at all, not that it felt more like war than BO3 does.

        • Choppabro2psn

          Thanks for specifying.

    • RdJokr

      … I really don’t know how you can tell we’re getting “bright pink, glow in the dark clothes” just from a menu pic that doesn’t even show the customization itself.

    • GR3Y_B1RD

      Im pretty sure that Vonderhaar saw that the Community kinda hates AW xD so he hopefully wont make any of the AW mistakes 🙂

  • Choppabro2psn

    I joint it was weird seeing it in single player and not in multiplayer, so this comes as no surprise.

  • Uh oh.

    I hope the DLC at least keeps the game authentic instead of absurd AW teir shit.

  • ThugTurf

    As a hardcore player, customization makes it harder to tell who is friendly and who is foe, so I am not a fan of it.

  • I like Microtransactions as long as they’re value for money and sensible! No stupid announcer voices like Ghosts or bullshit re-skins like the Wolf and Advanced Warfares weapons. Decent character packs like Capes/Masks/Armour and Brand New Weapons yes!

    • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

      Microtransactions aren’t beneficial period.

  • Aceshigh87

    I’m fine with cosmetic items since they give no real advantage but I’m going to be annoyed when (inevitably) we end up with a bunch of ugly and ridiculous micro-DLC items.

    I’m all for customizing but why not make the items logical? Personally speaking I find cool looking gear that someone might actually wear far more interesting than astronaut suits or kraken’s or whatever the hell else has been released over the last two years.

    And yes, before anyone says it, I know I don’t have to buy it (and I won’t) it just seems out of place in the game at all which is why it annoys me.

    • Devin Wolfe

      “but why not make the items logical?”

      Because it’s an arcade game and not a game like ARMA 3 which is a military sim.

      “it just seems out of place in the game”

      Again it’s an arcade game so nothing is out of place.

      • Aceshigh87

        Just because CoD is an arcade shooter doesn’t mean it’s the place for such ridiculous outfits. It’s still a game with graphics designed to look at least like a semi-relistic battle environment. I’m hardly saying the game should be a military sim by saying that it’s stupid (in my opinion) to have astronaut and clown outfits everywhere.

        • Devin Wolfe

          “doesn’t mean it’s the place for such ridiculous outfits”

          Where do you get this assumption?

          “I’m hardly saying the game should be a military sim by saying that it’s stupid (in my opinion) to have astronaut and clown outfits everywhere.”

          Might I point you to this quote from you

          “but why not make the items logical?”

          This is where it is implied.

  • Mr_ysi42t96

    NOOOOOO

  • Mr_ysi42t96

    please make it limited, i don’t want to see some people that look obvious and others that i can barely tell the difference with the background

  • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

    I’m glad that this is confirmed. The franchise definitely needs the maximum amount of customization possible. Whether we can see these characters or not, they’re still neat features. Gun customization is at an all-time maximum, as well. So cool.

  • GTA V

    I told you guys a while back.
    MICRO TRANSACTIONS CONFIRMED

    • Yankeephil

      Black ops 2 started the microtransactions so how would it surprise anyone that it is in BO3

      • GTA V

        Wtf are you talking about lmfao. Umm do you mean DLC genius? If so you might want to look up the definition for micro transactions

        • Mr_ysi42t96

          Dude bo2 started micro transactions

        • SoulTaker

          You sound mad :l eat a snickers and Black Ops 2 did start micro transactions do you not remember all the camos you could buy as well as 10 class sets…

          • GTA V

            That’s not the same thing.

          • SoulTaker

            How do you figure? A gun camo is a cosmetic such a new outfit being a cosmetic. If you even go back in time and look at the news during Black Ops 2 life cycle you will see news that that micro transactions are coming to Black Ops 2 for example I’ll copy and paste a section when they introduced them into BO2.

            Additionally, Black Ops II will be receiving Micro-Transactions on the Xbox 360 later this week. These micro-transactions are, according to Activision’s Dan Amrich, “either personal customizations or nice little luxuries”, which won’t “affect gameplay” but rather offer “small, specific ways to enhance your online experience”.

            So we can close that book for today. BTW how was your day anyway???Anything nice happen?

          • GTA V

            Oh it’s just there’s some guy with your sharingan on there. Thought it was you.

        • Yankeephil

          Buying camo and emblems are considered micro transactions, and BO2 had a ton of it. Also the extra create a class slots

          • GTA V

            That’s dlc. Just for gun looks. Not character or gun varients.

          • Yankeephil

            You are fucking retarded and you prove it everytime you comment on any article, and technically anything you buy and download is considered DLC, buying camos and things to change the looks are defined as microtransactions and the definition is “Microtransaction is a business model where users can purchase virtual goods via micropayments”. $2 – $5 is considered a micropayment, which confirms that black ops 2 started with the microtransactions first

          • GTA V

            Do you see the Varients slots? AW all over again

  • GTA V

    Black Advanced Warfare ops 2.3 they did learn from AW lmao.

    This character customization should be unlocked by challenges, kind of how it was in cod ghosts. I don’t want supply drops or anything similar to supply drops. If they release character customization as part of micro packs than that is okay because it’s optional and no gambling involved. #neverbringsupplydropsback

    • Devin Wolfe

      You didn’t have to buy them.

  • ToonToons22

    I’m alright with customization, so long as the gear actually makes sense. I want to stick to more militaristic outfits that look realistic, not ridiculous outfits like astronaut suits, clown masks, ninja outfits, and the like.

    One of the things I absolutely HATED about AW was the time-limited gear. What’s the purpose of getting a piece of equipment (or a full set, for that matter) only to lose it 30 minutes later? Come on.

    Another awesome idea would be to make the character gear practical. More mags, boost-jump time or XP depending on the outfit. If I could see at least one of these things in the game, then I would have no problem at all with the customization.

    • Devin Wolfe

      Wants realism in an arcade game LULZ.

  • Jay Evan

    Taunts and gestures, huh? Imagine knife/ripper-trolling somebody then flipping them off. XD

    Yeah, well, I refuse to support a corporation like Microsoft. I see them as Apple. They’re up there as one of the wealthiest corporations in the world, and it’s unfathomable to see people actually support and justify their actions. To tell you the truth, I am unsure whether or not I even want the system. One for not liking the corporation making it (which is fixed by the used game ecosystem), and two for not being excited for its games. I could go on all day, but I don’t want to make anyone upset and be unjustly called a “fanboy” just because of my preference. It happens a lot, for no valid reason.

    Then you have not read properly. Gamers are sense-impaired. You can’t read my comments and magically call me a “PS4 fanboy” (like an ignoramus) with no elaboration whatsoever other than me criticizing Microsoft. That’s the perfect gamer logic, right? If they don’t like something, then they MUST be a fanboy of something else. What did Microsoft do to make me not like them? Well, I don’t hate anything because I don’t believe in that word, but I heavily dislike them, especially when it comes to gaming. Why are you here justifying Microsoft as a company? I don’t see the logic in that

    The issue is Microsoft profiting off of their competition. It’s anti-gamer regardless. It’s definitely something to complain about. This was a selfish decision for cloud physics, they didn’t do this to benefit gamers and developers

    I’m not arguing for Sony. That’s not the point of my comment. I care about games, not companies. I’ll buy the console that suits my preferences, that’s it. How does that excuse Microsoft buying out a highly used physics engine over paying the money to have its first party studios develop it and take risks? It’s illogical to defend a corporation with $90 billion in revenue.

      And this is unclassy how?

      • J4MES

        Because it looks bloody embarrassing and tacky. We had enough of this cheap tat with Ghosts.

        • Devin Wolfe

          “Because it looks bloody embarrassing and tacky”

          How? Explain.

          • J4MES

            Seriously you need it explaining to you? You’re either 12 or a blinded fanboy. AW presented itself as a more serious COD title at launch but it soon delved into garbage content that didn’t reflect the game, was cartoony and diminished the quality of the dwindling product further. COD is not a serious franchise granted, but the content that they sell should at least represent the base game without drifting off into ludicrous fantasy. If you think guff like this is good; I feel sorry for you wasting your money and funding trash like Sledgehammer

            >Arcade game
            > serious

            Do you even hear yourself right now? I find is acceptable not everyone is a boring fuck that wants the same old same old or the same boring theme in everything.

          • J4MES

            Being an arcade-oriented game is irrelevant to presentation. You wouldn’t see this guff in the likes of COD 4 or Black Ops diminishing the quality of the product with cheap immature crap. I guess they are just appealing to the minority of players left in the game = kids.

          • Devin Wolfe

            Because they didn’t have the engine made to accept DLC weapons camos and such dipshit do some fucking research before you open your damn mouth. Also it’s only immature to you me I’m a 20 something year old man who likes to have fun and without a stuck up my ass like you seem to have. So yeah get fucked come back when you can actually think.

          • J4MES

            ”didn’t have the engine made to accept DLC”? LOL WTF does that even mean? You don’t need any engine to produce texture based aesthetics and audio files LMAO! You also don’t need an engine to produce mature content that fits in with the branding of the game you’ve created. If you’re going to justify your embarrassing arguments; at least provide credible facts with evidence and not desperate lies to justify the tragic direction the developers took to try and appease the market left playing its game…

          • Devin Wolfe

            The engine and the consoles at the time could not support weapon and camo DLC fuckwad if you actually paid attention you would know the peacekeeper and the camos for Black Ops 2 where pushing the RAM of the 360 and PS3 to it breaking point I also can confirm because I have a 2 year degree in PC hardware and networking. The branding of COD now is arcade game so anything goes so maturely is a moot point dipfuck.

            Read faggot something you seem to have a hard time doing.

          • J4MES

            Why are you linking an article from 3 years ago that isn’t relevant anymore? What you are basically saying is that AW’s content is more childish because they don’t have an engine to release DLC even though they have released the DLC and that because of limitations; they have to dumb-down the product which diminishes itself from the brand? Also branding is nothing to do with genre mechanics – COD has always been arcade.

            Seems like you’ve got so wrapped up in AW’s defense; your argument isn’t even correct or relevant to what I originally conveyed! Also there is no such thing as a PC hardware degree either LMFAO. Another damage-control fanboy trying to give it large by spouting shite in defence of the game but using the most ludicrous excuses ever. We’re not in 2012 anymore kid…

          • Devin Wolfe

            “LOL WTF does that even mean? You don’t need any engine to produce texture based aesthetics and audio files LMAO! ”

            Because you said this and because of the new engine in Ghosts and the added benifit of the Xbone and PS4 having more resources they are able to have weapon and camo DLC without breaking the hardware. I though you where slow before but damn you’re borderline autistic.

            “You wouldn’t see this guff in the likes of COD 4 or Black Ops”

            I was talking about this comment of your’s dipshit I know you’re slow in the head but try to keep up.

            You wouldn’t know childish if it came up and bit you in the ass. Tell me how the armor sets in AW are dumbed down Mr. Syndrome of a downs.

            Also yeah there is dumbfuck

            http://study.com/computer_hardware_engineering_degree.htm

            And from your comments you aren’t picking up what I’m putting down.

          • J4MES

            Once again; what the hell does the THEME of the DLC content have to do with ‘limitations’ in 2015? Another pitiful and weak justification for Sledgehammer’s crap content. Nice fake link by the way ”
            The page you have requested could not be found!” because the course does not exist. GG lol!

          • Devin Wolfe

            My god you have a legit mental disability don’t you? You said before that we didn’t see this in BO1 or COD4 and I told you the consoles at the time couldn’t handle it but apparently you’re so slow in the head you don’t get that. Also “fake link”? LULZ don’t make me laugh son. It sounds like you’re the one in damage control mode shitstain.

          • J4MES

            Instead of pasting the first entry in Google; you should actually click on the link to see if it legitimately works; afterall you’ve got this ‘degree’….allegedly…even though it doesn’t exist thanks to Google screwing you LOL!

            ”You said before that we didn’t see this in BO1 or COD4” Yes I said that because the DLC was produced to REFLECT the game. IW and 3arc did not go on to release TACKY content to detract the game branding they created. Advanced Warfare with ancient armour is tacky crap IMO. If you accepted my opinion instead of throwing a hissy fit and then confusing yourself; you could have saved some embarrassment. My advice; stay in school if you can handle it and if you’re going to lie online; at least try and act credible…

            Embarrassing.

          • Devin Wolfe

            The screenshot shows it does exist and it does work. And where is it written that the DLC needs to reflect the game? Or doe you want a game to adhere to some arbitrary standard you set?And I respect no opinion that is pushed as if it is a fact.

          • J4MES

            It may work in your country but the screenshot does not reflect what you said in terms of the ‘ degree qualification’. My opinion wasn’t a fact; I made my comment and showed a picture and I’m just one of many who think the same. Should have just dealt with it instead of derailing. COD set a standard years ago and now it’s struggling. The tacky microtransaction seen in Ghosts and AW (two poor COD games) does not appeal to many users or reflect the base-games. Perhaps if they delivered material that was in sync with what they created instead of detracting from it; the games would have reeled people back in. I didn’t buy a single piece of DLC for AW because of how shite it looked and plenty of others didn’t either. If they retained their original standard; it may have been a different story.

          • Devin Wolfe

            Just because you don’t like something doesn’t make it bad or tacky. And not one of many more one of a minority.

          • J4MES

            That’s why it’s called an opinion. Also stop defending the game by using the ‘minority’ term – just like Ghosts; it’s way more than just a few people that have issues with the aesthetics and not to mention the games as a whole.

          • Devin Wolfe

            Most people don’t care how the aesthetics are all they care about is how they are going to shoot things. If you care about things like this go get a PC and play ARMA 3.

          • J4MES

            I’ve been playing ARMA 3 since 2013.

        • GinsuVictim

          Nothing in Ghosts was as bad as the stuff they’re doing in AW.

      • uMug

        dont tell me you buy this rubbish? its people like you that make activision easy money for complete crap. have some standards ffs! I bet you only get to use it against bots because nobody plays this shite anymore.

  • MMEH

    Why does everybody make a problem about micro-transactions>
    I admit that they where horrible in AW, but in ghosts and bo2 it didn’t help you to win. If you just wanted it, you could have it and it would have (almost) no effect on your gameplay. So if you don’t want to buy it, don’t do it and just stop bitching about that you have to pay for shit. Activision is a company, they want to make as much money as they can….

    • Devin Wolfe

      In AW they didn’t either I could easily kill a Bal-27 Obsidian Steed user with just the stock Bal-27 people just don’t want to learn how to deal with new things in gaming it scares them for whatever odd reason.

  • DeadZombieGaming 12

    Taunts and Gestures?

  • zack

    I’m gunna laugh so hard when they bring supply drops back Just without guns lol watch

    • J4MES

      They wont bring supply drops back but they will replace it with some other form of aggressive micro purchases. There’s no way Activision will drop a cash milking revenue stream like that.

  • Tsaki

    I would like these customizations to be unlocked purely be achieving challenges just like Ghosts did. But because Activision always wants to make more money there is no stopping to micro-DLCs. I just hope they are not ridiculous like most of the character skins in AW. It is disgusting seeing all these Kraken, Arachnid and Clown soldiers running around in the battlefield.

    • Devin Wolfe

      How?

      • Tsaki

        What do you mean?

        • Devin Wolfe

          “It is disgusting seeing all these Kraken, Arachnid and Clown soldiers running around in the battlefield.”

          This is what I was talking about.

          • Tsaki

            You want me to explain to you why it is unappealing to me the fact that soldiers with heads of spiders and brains run in the map?

          • Devin Wolfe

            Yep everything has a reason or should have a reason if it doesn’t it’s bullshit.

          • Tsaki

            Well they do have a reason: to make Activision a shit ton of money from 12 year olds who see something shiny and “cool” and want to have it.

          • Devin Wolfe

            You don’t have to be 12 years old to enjoy these things that’s a stupid assumption with no bases behind it.

  • Liam Gibson

    Is there player customisation for zombies
