    • O: Peeping Tom!

      Is it weird that I can read this?

  • I’d be excited if we hadn’t already known what the 9th specialist is. Although I am eager to see the trailer they put together for this final character. That’s if they give it one.

    • ScOott

      It will most likely put a stop to people screaming its OP before they have actually seen it.. I bet it’s not as bad as people reckon it will be .

      • Yeah, it’s just a dude with a flamethrower. Doesn’t seem like anything that’d be too OP.

        • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

          They’d have to make it usable. If people have to earn it, I see no issue.

    • RdJokr

      To be fair, what we saw was a very unfinished model of the character. I’m still excited to see how the character looks up close.

      • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

        There was an image?

        • RdJokr

          Somebody modded the beta on PC to load up all the stuff. I didn’t see any myself while I was playing, thankfully.

          The textures on Firebreak were unfinished though, so there was barely any detail on him.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            I guess it’s a homage to World at War. One of my personal favorites in the franchise.

  • Juses

    Fuk, eye wuz soe clouse tew furst 🙁

  • Ak74u

    4th

    • Juses

      Aka er an fagit

  • shantzonpoint

    ok this shit is cruel (actually genius on their part) making us wait til Fridays……….lol.

  • GTA V

    Wait so what happens if the new specialist isn’t balanced like the rest were not… Then what?

    • Keshav Bhat

      The Specialists were quite balanced, and in fact, Vahn reacted to our feedback and made changes.

      Did you play the same beta as us??

      • GTA V

        Balanced they nerfed half the specialists. Did you play the beta at all?

        • Aidan

          Do you think before you comment?

          • GTA V

            Very much so. Give me your opinion please. Do you think the new specialist will perfectly settle right in? Orrrrrr will it be the last to unlock so you have to play the game and grind it out to spend time on it. So you can finally try it and then you’ll already have so many hours played you’ll be mind washed into liking it.

          • Aidan

            Damn, guess not.

          • GTA V

            Great response. Very much thought such brain much smart

          • Aidan

            i could say the same to you…

        • Keshav Bhat

          I did! I played it a lot. The nerfed the re-jack ability after complaints, but I never had any big issues with it. Game was pretty balanced and quite fun compared to previous Call of Duty games.

          • GTA V

            They also changed the lighting gun forgot the name, also glitch, and I’m sure others I can’t remember. Soooo inform yourself a bit more.

          • Yankeephil

            Glitch they gave a buff to, and they nerfed tempest because originally you didn’t even have to aim at anyone with it. Aim in the general direction and it was an automatic kill

          • Juses

            Since you’re here I have a question. Why do you allow all the trolling in the comment section?

          • ScOott

            What are you doing Juses! you will end up getting all of us banned, including you’re self ?.. The coment section is fine.. ?

          • Juses

            I don’t consider my comments trolling.

          • GTA V

            Shut up queer

          • Juses

            Y r yew soe meen tew me? 🙁

          • GTA V

            I’m jk everyone loves jesus. Except for me. Satan so go away faaggy

          • ScOott

            I know this is a big ask, but can we not troll juses, he’s kewl.. ??

          • GTA V

            He broke character. It’s not my fault.

          • ScOott

            Lol come on man, he dose pretty well 99 percent of the time.. He doesn’t deserve the GTA V treatment for a slip up lol.. Anybody but juses .. And NoaghGoa.. ?

          • GTA V

            Fine he gets a pass.

          • ScOott

            Other people do lol, people even consider me one *face palm* GTA V is Alreet u just got off on the wrong foot..

          • Keshav Bhat

            Oh.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            This implies that he does. There’s no point. It’s harmless.

      • ScOott

        When are u closing the competition for the charlie Intel t-shirt thing? Noahgoa still needs his Prizes!

    • Ak74u

      Imo they all seemed pretty balanced

      • GTA V

        Omg these fanboys. Where are allllllllllllllll the kids that were crying about everything? And you are full retard if you claimed balanced when they literally changed them because they were not.

        • Ak74u

          I’m taking about after the changes retard

          • GTA V

            Okay genius so answer the question. What happens if the new specialist isn’t balanced sense we didn’t use it in the beta for them to change?

          • Ak74u

            Simple, they will nerf it quick. What do you want me to say that everyone is gonna be pissed and it’s going to break the game over one specialist?

          • GTA V

            Uhhh yeah. So if you’re are agreeing that they will nerf it if it’s OP. You’re also agreeing the game is not finish. Good day sir.

          • jordanxxxbrookes

            So instead of being excited about some COD news, you’re pissing your pants worried about how OP something will be? You should probably just play offline vs Recruit bots if you’re that afraid of things in MP.

          • GTA V

            You have no idea how a competitive game works. Smh alright bro whatever you say. I’m sorry to you and everyone in here.

          • jordanxxxbrookes

            Isn’t this a Arcade game with competitive elements?

            Why don’t you be a COMPETITOR and think about how you will overcomes this hypothetical OP specialist as opposed to crying.

            I get pros and cons but let’s not make a game socialism. All the specialists have a good ability and a one shot weapon so I mean how unbalanced can it really be? Pull your skirt down

          • GTA V

            Umm I want to play a FPS to shoot guns not OP one shot bull crap

          • ScOott

            I would honestly prefer them not to be in the game, but for me It’s been 2 years without a CoD it’s still fun even if there is some b.s in there .. Anything is better than A.W and ghosts right ?

          • GTA V

            You need to try halo bro. I will teach you the ways of the ninja. All I do is play black ops 2 and halo mcc. I can’t wait until they rerelease black ops or something with great graphics for the xbox one

          • ScOott

            Yh man, I got the MCC but never botherd with multiplayer, I’m on ps4 as well and it’s a beeatch having to pay 2 lots of 40 pound to play online.. But I might have to get my xbox live back to try halo 5 multiplayer ..

          • GTA V

            I’ll see if I have a trial code for you. I actually have a youtube channel and will be making halo 5 vids. I’ll teach you the ropes. It’s a bigger learning curve but way more satisfaction when you can’t destroy and out smart multiple enemies.

          • ScOott

            Ok Kool.. What’s the channel name ?

          • GTA V no nuts little boy

            You know what ? you can tell you are young you know how? Your stressing about 1 specialist being OP that shows how shitty you are at cod who cares if the ONE will be OP they Nerf it period the end stop being a big baby strap your big boy nuts on and keep it moving

          • GTA V

            You know what? I can tell young by your grammatical errors and by the fact that you made a GTA V no nuts little boy account lmfao.

          • nobody likes this GTA V guy

            >I can tell young
            >grammatical errors

          • RandomBit

            Clearly you don’t seem to understand guns can be a one shot kill in real life – you bleed out after anyways. So what’s the harm in a flamethrower?

          • Ak74u

            So what other way are they supposed to fix it if it’s over powered and I’m not agreeing that it is. I never said the game isn’t finished every single game has patches and fixes maybe this game won’t even need any fixes

          • GTA V

            Back in my day games were finished when you bought them. Now patched indefinitely.

          • Ak74u

            Like you said, good day sir. I can respond to your statement but I don’t feel like wasting my time any further

          • GTA V

            But you just did just now…sooo… yeah

          • darren

            Yes. That is what he wants to hear. Then he could act like he came up with an original thought. And it doesn’t matter what YOU say, he can find a way to twist it to his benefit.

          • jordanxxxbrookes

            Since when does any developer need to allow us to decide how something should be in the game?

            You’re so afraid of something being overpowered a month from release?

            If it’s truly overpowered it would get nerfed. Try to play the game and have a little fun before being afraid of everything owning you. Rejack was only specialist nerfed.

            Why are you randomly calling people kids and fanboys?

          • Yankeephil

            Don’t feed the troll

          • darren

            “People” will be vocal, and they will patch it. That is what will happen.

          • GTA V

            So unfinished game. In other words.

          • darren

            Your words, not mine. Besides, back in the day, when games weren’t online, they had to be right. There was no way to fix it. These days, we do. Would you rather them release it “unfinished” and then not patch/fix it later? It is the times we live in. I don’t say releasing an unfinished game is “right”, but I’m glad they can fix it. People like to think of the old days like they were perfect. They weren’t. A lot of games sucked. But it doesn’t really matter to you. Anything to either start shit, or try to prove that you’re right. It’s really easy to be contrary. It’s the easiest way to come off like you actually have qn opinion. I’m sure if “People” looked hard enough, or they could actually put in the work themselves, and find or create a website dedicated to hating. Free advice. I’m sure Hatebook, would be the next Facebook.

            “People”=whiny bitches
            Hmmm….Who does that sound like?

          • GTA V

            Kk

        • darren

          Changed one.

  • Alan coleman

    Does anyone know what time the star wars beta will be out in the UK

  • Kyle Emery

    It’s a flamethrower specialist. Watch I bet y’all.

    • Aidan

      Who would’ve thought…

      • Kyle Emery

        I know?

      • Kyle Emery

        Saw it leaked somewhere but who knows might of changed it.

        • Marvin Pranger

          You’re not too good at detecting sarcasm, aye?

  • Michael Romo

    Seriously? Treyarch should leave SOME things a surprise, not just give us everything before the game comes out.

    • shantzonpoint

      They will. They won’t show all the maps since there are 13 or so and only 4 weeks til launch. I’m sure there will be other nuggets that we won’t know about as well. They are just keeping people excited until launch. Smart on their part I think.

    • k5berry

      A crapload of it has already been leaked so it doesn’t really matter much anymore lol.

    • Aidan

      If you want to be surprised, your best bet is to stay off CI until November 6th.

  • Kyle Emery

    Anyway who’s Hyped for this new cod!

  • GTA V

    Now can someone please answer the question without getting so butt hurt?
    WHAT HAPPENS IF THE NEW SPECIALIST IS NOT BALANCED ?. Please be real.

    • Ak74u

      Don’t worry about it. It is a flame thrower which probably doesn’t have a lot of range. And I think the other ability is a guardian like effect.

      • GTA V

        Bro if it’s the last person you unlock do you really believe it’s going to be under powered? Oh yeah I forgot you unlock all the best stuff at level 3 and all the crappy stuff at level 55

        • Yankeephil

          We have no idea what order the things unlock in. Treyarch had the items at certain levels so we could try everything. For all we know, Reaper could be the first we unlock and Ruin last

    • darren

      If it isn’t, people will be vocal, and they will patch it. That is what will happen.

  • CoDforever

    Everybody already knows its the flamethrower specialist

    BUT i am excited for that map reveal, instead of showing us a desert/jungle map i hope they show us a unique map like Hijacked or Raid

    • Maximiliano Martinez

      I wonder if we will be able to use that specialist under water…

      • Skillreks

        it could be a magnesium-type of fire, with an oxidizer to keep the flame going under water, so it very well could work!

      • Dazy

        Face palm 🙂 I don’t think so bro

        • Brian

          I guess you’ve never heard of magnesium fire?

          Back to school with you.

    • ddrhodes33

      The map looks like it has a short name so it could be Raid. Also I reckon one of the Fridays will be the Nuketown map reveal

      • infinity396

        not sure why they would have Nuketown revealed on 1 of the Fridays,since it has already been confirmed as a map for BOIII.

        • ddrhodes33

          I meant as in like a trailer or something, not just an image

  • RdJokr

    I would’ve been so happy for this, if this had taken place in a different time, and not 3AM in my timezone. Ugh…

    I do hope that one of those planned events have to do with the PC version though. Would make me so happy if they could dedicate at least a part of one livestream to us.

    What total package? The whopping 3 inches? It’s funny that you think that you can tell me what to do, you adorable little troll, you. <3

    BradyAlucard[sillibk] Devin Wolfe 4 days ago
    Oh, and you're an insensitive little prick who thinks it's okay to make fun of people with mental illnesses. Dogshit PC elitist plebeian filth.

    BradyAlucard[sillibk] spartanelite 5 days ago
    It has oversaturated the market. Now gamers bitch when they don't get it, which is retarded

    BradyAlucard[sillibk] Devin Wolfe 6 days ago
    Are you retarded?

    BradyAlucard[sillibk] Ippoletta 25 minutes ago
    You're an idiot if you don't think this doesn't affect anyone. You are naive.

    • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

      Best profile ever.

  • Dangelo95

    Exciting that they are revealing some things every Friday truly hyped up the game not sure what the next two weeks will feature but I expect the last week to reveal NUK3TOWN and more Zombies info

  • Clash

    know me to be play 6 noovmeber in the playing will be good?

  • Maximiliano Martinez

    See…this is building HYPE! Now every Friday we have something to look forward to instead of waiting for possible leaks. Can’t wait till’ they reveal the new map. 5 more weeks guys!!

    • matt murdock

      couldnt have said it better, why not announce things to look forward to, build hype, rather then making us wait without any idea of whats coming, it’s not exciting

  • JacobFinleyJr

    This is awesome, I wonder will they reveal a couple of maps or prestige emblems or maybe even new gun?

  • Ryumoau

    This is pretty cool. Can’t wait to see the new map. Wonder what the other three dates are for. 🙂

  • Dr. Salim

    I belive that BO3 has a chance to become one of the better CoD campaigns but nowhere near as perfect as a game like Spec ops: The line.

  • ToonToons22

    We’ve known the 9th specialist’s identity for a while now. According to the beta files, his name is Firebreak, his Specialist Ability is Heatwave, and his Specialist Weapon is the Purifier. But I would not be surprised if Treyarch ended up changing him at the last minute.

    • DeadZombieGaming 12

      But he wasn’t done… he was like beta version of him

  • shadowguy14

    damn you 5 weeks -_- wake me up until then

  • Manx Mouse

    Am i the only one that thinks that zombie maps would be epic if they were multiplayer maps? Especially Shangri La.

  • 1 15

    i wonder if any zombie reveals

  • Prostidude

    I’m backkk…

  • Ak74u

    I would love a raid or hijacked remake or standoff,
