    Treyqrch 😉

  • Sweet. I’ve played a ton of SnD this weekend, so the XP increase will be nice.

  • MichiganerE

    That pic reminds me of BO1.

  • lunator100hd .

    So boring for my taste! i play since cod4 and still wondering why ppl play this slow-ass mode in cod, just go play cs go or bf, they are all boring and slow as well.

    • I’m wondering why you’re still here lmao.

    • TheDemonOfHate

      Are you the type of guy that runs to the middle of the map & die first & spectate your teammates? I think you are.

      • KK5

        Me, but that is why I don’t play SnD, I can respect those who do

      • lunator100hd .

        Im the type of guy who dont play snd because its too slow, and i rush every game beastin on noobs with 2.5 kdr.

        • TheDemonOfHate

          k.

        • blahblah

          well, you don’t have to hate on SnD bro 🙂 everybody has different tastes haha

    • DespicableDan

      It can be one of the most tactical modes, was and will be once again good for xp, kills are more satisfying etc

      • lunator100hd .

        Waiting in a corner or headglich for a player to pass by , very satisfying indeed.

        • DespicableDan

          I rush across the map, thats why in aw I often got 20+ kill games!

    • jordanxbrookes

      Because it’s tactical and strategic. Makes for intense matches and moments.

      • I love the intense matches. SnD is great in Bo3.

      • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

        I ain’t playing dis shit with the TTK and headglitches! No way jose!

    • ItzSikh

      slow my ass. SnD is the best way socialise by calling the other team faggits when dying and also SnD makes every round frustrating like how the size of your penis is and lastly SnD is the best game mode to fucking do 360, YY, Tac switch, 1080 to pistol whip trickshots. So why you hating.

  • Emre

    They must update the text in splitscreen. Its too small to see good.

    • Prostidude

      U got a pretty damn small screen then, what 12 inch? I have a 20 inch monitor, played 3 player zombies last night and was perfect xD!

  • YoungMurf

    Been playing S&D a lot since launch and thought it took ages to level up. Glad to hear this 🙂

  • KK5

    A XP increase across the different game-modes would be nice, but I understand the thought behind the long Prestiges

    • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

      Yeah, because they DID have to consider the fact that a huge chunk of the playerbase will stay on it for 3 years.

      • Prostidude

        Even if IF makes the qoute on quote “best” COD in 2016 (lmao kys), I’m sticking to BO3 till 2018. SH tho, I have better faith in them than IF.

        • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

          I have no more faith in SH. They’re going to make AW2 and it’s going to be the same crap. I have more faith in IW, but the only CoDs I’m buying will come from Treyarch.

      • KK5

        They want to definitely want to ensure longevity in BO3 in case the wildcard that is IW and Sledge’s next games aren’t as accepted by the community.

        • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

          It’s why it has so much going for it.

  • jordanxbrookes

    Finally, I’m happy it’s been increased because it does make it hard to learn the map routes for S&D and not being able to level up quick. GUNNS4HIRE will be pleased.

    • MichiganerE

      GUNNS4HIRE… that takes me back to 2009-2011 when Gunns still had that YouTube channel and the NGT crew was still together. Those were some great times.

      • jordanxbrookes

        I still enjoy his content on YAW and BrainFreeze, but yeah, NGT back in the day was the bomb.

        • MichiganerE

          That’s cool. I don’t why why, but I just haven’t had any interest in watching YAW or BrainFreeze in the last year. Maybe I just grew out of it considering my tastes now? I enjoyed YAW up until 2013-2014, but I just don’t care for it anymore.

      • Aceshigh87

        Man, I haven’t heard that name in years. Back in MW2 GUNNS was the guy who inspired me to get better at CoD. I actually pretty much stopped watching him once NGT separated itself from YouTube and went full onto the site.

        • jordanxbrookes

          NGT during COD4/WaW/MW2 were the greatest of times. I still look back on that time GUNNS got that knife-only Nuke on Derail. They too inspired me to get better.

        • MichiganerE

          Yeah, I can see why.

  • Off topic, but I’d like to see Safeguard get a spawn delay and an XP kill increase. There’s too much spawn trapping, and 50 XP for a kill is not enough, imo.

    • DEMOLITION12

      would you like to explain how a spawn delay would make spawn trapping happen less? lol

  • ScOott

    My weapon camo bugged.. I’ve took all my attatchments off my gun for one of the camo n it won’t register .. Still says I have 0 of 50 kills without no weapon attatchments :-/ R.i.P diamond camo ?

    • hahah IKR, glhf 😀

    • Jaybolty

      I experienced this as well, however once I took the clan tag/kill counter off from prestiging the weapon it started to count. Hope this helps

  • Aceshigh87

    I’m a little bias since I never lay Search but I’d rather see the Hardpoint cap xp back up at 200 rather than see an xp increase in S&D

    • Prostidude

      I’d like that on HP too. But, I’m a hardcore SnD fan. When I played BO3 first time I played some, TDM then hopped on SnD. SnD usually gives a lot of xp (maybe not as much as aw). So a lot of die hard SnD fans, died when they didn’t get high amounts of xp.

  • Off topic but i have been playing the campaign and I have to say, this is probably one of the most brutal campaigns i have played besides World at War and Black Ops

    • ItzSikh

      The gore man. love how Rachel Kane is puking and somehow you do it in real life (Thats what I did when I saw the whole campaign on YT)

      • My only problem with the story in BO3 is why isn’t there any mention of Alex Mason, David Mason, Woods, etc unless i didn’t pay attention to something

        • ItzSikh

          there was menendez and this game is set in 2065 so its 40 years on from 2025 so they both might have died of old age or something but BO2 was actually the proper ending for black ops and black ops 3 is just a what if campaign.

          • Yeah I saw they mention Menendez, I dunno I just expected a little something from those old characters or at least a mention like Menendez got

          • RdJokr

            The last mission is gonna fuck you up hard with some old references, particularly the beginning text paragraph. Check that out for some mindfucking.

          • Yeah i beat the campaign i figured i missed something

  • LovekillerX

    So there is out of map glitch in “Fringe”… I hope this gets fixed ASAP!

    • ItzSikh

      NO it needs to be fixed till I get the game and play on that map going 89-0.

  • T4LiTY

    When will this take place?

    • Prostidude

      Within this week most likely

  • Alan Di Geronimo

    Treyarch*

  • DEMOLITION12

    new update just now on ps4

  • Cadence

    I wish they’d bring S&R back. I felt like it minimized many of the S&D complaints, but still brought the intensity and high stakes of Search.

    I myself can’t stand S&D, but I absolutely loved S&R in Ghosts and AW. It was fun being the medic, just running around and reviving fallen teammates. I hope Treyarch brings this wonderful game mode back at some point.

  • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

    Treyqrch is amazing

  • Prostidude

    Thank god they are doing this. Had to reset my computer, so I don’t have my In Vahn We Trust photoshop 🙁
