    Hardcore KC! ?

  • Tuby

    Give stock a buff

    • QuickzZ-_-GhosT

      They need to buff the scorestreaks . Getting only 2 kills with a Wraith is stupid.

      • LovekillerX

        How about hellstorm? I put those missiles straight to the heart of enemies just to get 1-2 kills. Also lighting strike has too long delay…

        • XtremeK1ll3r

          Enemies fixing was waaaay better in the beta of hellstorm , now i can aim 5 enemies with the hellstorm but it only impacts to 1 or 2 with luck LOL

          • LovekillerX

            Yeah in the beta I got very nice feeds with hellstorm now it is pretty weak. Also I think one simple UAV shouldn’t be 500 points… it can be shot down easily and you can counter it by perk and counter UAV.

          • Guywithbrains

            UAV should be 350 score at least in team deathmatch.

            But as people say they need to buff hellstorm missile and wraith. In addition make lighting strike’s delay slightly shorter.

          • ScOott

            UAV gets spammed enough, 500 is Perfect .. Everything got to be that bit harder to get with specialist imo

          • Mr_ysi42t96

            Yea, they have to make it harder to get so it’s less spammed

          • jordanxbrookes

            Maybe in OBJ modes but in modes like FFA and TDM, 5 kills for a UAV is awful. I remember when UAVs took 3 kills to obtain *sigh*

          • ItzSikh

            then increase non obj mode score to 150 per kill

          • ScOott

            Honestly there wouldn’t be a moment in the game a UAV wouldn’t be in the sky, I could see it getting rediculas with 3 kills in this game .. I know it’s a bitch to get in them modes u mentioned but I’d rather have it like that for them two modes instead of the objective modes getting spammed with a UAV every 30 seconds because someone got 2 easy kills with their chosen specialist and a flag cap .. Just my opinion tho ..

          • jordanxbrookes

            Then maybe they should increase the score you get in FFA and TDM to like 125 or 150.

          • ScOott

            Good thinking batman.. That would make it perfect if they did it like that .. Hire this man treyarch!

          • jordanxbrookes

            It would be like what they did for S&D except the other way round; keep the XP the same, but increase the score.

          • I would agree with this and have been pushing for this for a while.

          • Yeah, TDM gets a little boring with the lack of scorestreaks. This has been a problem for the last few games though. No one seems to ever agree, but I think it’s a good idea to raise points in these modes.

          • iiGMack

            use ante up tier 2 perk and combat focus specialist. its not going to help on every streak but when you time it right you can get points QUICK. UAVs are no problem then.

          • Vicsupreme

            Uav gets spammed because there is no other viable scorestreak in the low-score bracket.

          • ScOott

            Making it even lower score would only increase its smap. They would have to decrease every score streak in that case, then they would all get spammed .. I hope they don’t listen to the people wanting them to change the score of them, and instead alter how many points u get in TDM like all ready suggested ..

        • Undien1

          Definitely correct. Beta for both was insane. Reminded me of the old days. But too much nerfing all the wrong things. Even ghost only works if your sprinting….but isn’t walking the same as moving?

      • Bmeowmix

        I love when enemies call in Rolling Thunder because you know they won’t kill you and yu can eaisly shoot them down with an MG for 150 points each

      • If only I recorded that game play on HC TDM. Dude, my Wraith was in beast mode. No joke. I got a pic of the score summary tho.

      • zack

        Every time i call it in I get like 5 to 10 kills with it. Put it right over their spawn. Wraith is the last thing that needs buffed.

        • Agreed. In some ways, I feel that wraith needs a nerf, lol.

      • Tuby

        Agreed. But I liked the stock/stalker in previous cod. Stock on a AR in for example bo deux was perfect. Now I dont use stock because it almost doesnt help to strafe fast

    • PuddingAuxRais1ns

      Stock doesn’t need a buff. It’s fine as is. If Stock were anymore powerful than it is then ARs would dominate again like it has for the past CoDs starting with BO1.

      • Bmeowmix

        Agreed. Stock made ARs and even LMGs handle like SMGs.

        • Undien1

          Stock seems like it needs a slight buff as well as Grip. Sheiva doesn’t even need Grip as it has no sway or bounce

          • Bmeowmix

            I use stock regularly. It’s definitely fine. Grips seems okay too, although I’d never use it anyways so I’m not sure

      • Correction, MW3 started the fast ADS movement with the Stalker perk. Then became an attachment on BO2.

        • PuddingAuxRais1ns

          AR’s in BO1 we’re still dominate though. MW3 did exasperate the issue with the addition of Stalker.

      • Tuby

        No way it almost doesnt hepl you strafe faster. I like stock on AR but not in bo 3. I think it depends on the mapwhich gun you use not the attachment. But I do also great without but why put something in the game that doesnt work

    • mjfame

      agreed

    • ItzSikh

      stock is fine as it is no need it being crutch again so use other attachments or you’re just bad since increased strafing is just a noobs way of getting kills also I had man o war with reflex, quickdraw and grip and went 40/5, 30/1 and 50/6 also got 4 quad feeds in BETA.

      • Guest

        Beta was almost 2 monts ago, what are you doing now? Waiting til Black Friday to afford PS3 version?

        • ItzSikh

          bro I’m on next current gen what you on about and most of the things in BETA are still the same in the actual game.

      • Tuby

        I do great without stock. Already a 3.20 kd and prestige 4. But why put something in a game when it doesnt work. That wass all i mentioned to say.I also love the man o war. I used more ar then smg on bo3 and go each game beast. Mybest game is 70- 5 with a ar. For your reference on bo 2 almost Every big youtuber used stock on AR and I dont consider them as noobs.

        • ItzSikh

          yh only reason why because they want no skill kills and don’t trust youtubers all the time also BO2 stock was needed because the strafe wasn’t that good.

    • Agreed, it’s completely useless right now.

  • LovekillerX

    People asked for hardcore domination and kill confirmed and now they got it. I would like to see more party games.

    • Guywithbrains

      Sticks and stones, all or nothing or infected would be nice. If I remember right players create party games so maybe there will be more party modes later.

      What comes to new game modes I think specialist gun game would be pretty awesome.

      • GinsuVictim

        I love One in the Chamber

      • ArtisanKnight

        Sticks and stones with the crossbow being the sparrow. Lol.

        • Mick

          Or knife only playlist with the thrust jumping 😛

          • ArtisanKnight

            Knifing is so good again.

          • Mick

            It really is. I can just imagine a FFA game on Nuketown with knife only, people thrusting in the air, trying to get away from their enemy :D. I think it would be a good playlist.

          • Need to use 12 players to accomodate for the bigger maps though, maybe 18.

          • ArtisanKnight

            I’d play simply because people can’t camp behind the cars or in Windows with ARs and gorgons.

        • Ryan Collewijn

          How about Knockout only fists haha

          • ArtisanKnight

            That’d be fun. Maybe even see some teeth flying lol

        • spartanelite

          And the ballistic knife?

          • Kobrah

            They can just ad one like tac insert in Ghosts and AW for infected

          • ArtisanKnight

            None other than the Ripper! lol

      • Rorke File

        Infected isn’t gone be fun with this game because of the movement.

      • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

        Infected Zambies version pls

    • Austin Michael Titus

      not even 24 hours after Von posted about it on reddit. Dont like HC modes, but all hail von!

    • TG Frontliner

      Have you heard of care package Christmas? I play it all the time with guys in my clan. It was available in BO1, and you get a care package for every kill. Similar to drop zone, but less hectic and FFA rather than team based. Had some of my fondest memories on that, and now you can increase the points per kill in custom from 1 to 5, letting you get every killstreak in 3 kills.

  • O.G.Bobby Johnson

    I have to give it to them, they are on top of their game as far as bug fixes and patches go, good job.

    • ArtisanKnight

      Because they actually care what people think of their game

    • Rustin Nowell

      Amazing how caring about what your customers want helps improve your product.

      • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

        This is Treyarch at their best. Giving what their fans WANT and begged for.

        • ItzSikh

          Treyarch as always been giving their most since Black ops till now that’s treyarch is love treyarch is life

  • Kyle

    Thanks David void arhat

  • Kyle

    Void haha

  • Drank Bleach

    My question is why didn’t they put those playlists at launch?

    • The world may never know…

      • TheCursedShank

        Vahn made a post on r/blackops3. He said (and I quote), “If we do add Hardcore Kill Confirmed and Hardcore Domination, you will drawn down the population of Hardcore Search & Destroy as we well as Hardcore Capture the Flag even more, and could possible make those playlists unsustainable.”

        • iiGMack

          worth it. S&D has always been a hardcore staple, but might as well remove CTF. horrific game mode in HC with all the room to lay down behind the flag.

    • RdJokr

      They were afraid of fracturing the already-low HC population with too many playlists. They wanted to see how healthy the playerbase was.

      • iiGMack

        might as well go ahead and remove CTF, that game mode is dead. hardcore dom and KC too much fun

  • Deprece

    Why would they remove HC Dom and KC anyway? They are the most played HC game modes along with the other big 2. (TDM and SnD) HC FFA and CTF isn’t popular. I swear they always add these game modes after launch every year.

    • Vahn did say on Conversations with Creators that all playlists were going to be available and depending on which game modes players play the most are the modes that will stay in the HC playlist.

  • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

    Anybody else getting this error, or is it just me? It says I’m on the latest version. The issue is not with PSN, because I was playing Bloodborne just fine a few minutes ago. It’s an issue with Black Ops 3 servers. I keep getting kicked out of the main menu when I’m online.

    • I’ve been getting that a lot on Xbox One.

    • Jason_88

      There are numbers in the top right corner of the start screen they are 33000 you have to wait until they change to 3.4621 or something than you’ll have access to online

      • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

        Yeah, restarting it helped. I appreciate your help.

        • Jason_88

          No problem I’m telling you before you press X just make sure them numbers are off of the 3 zeros and you’ll have online access as soon as you press X

  • Aubrey OVO ?

    Im excited now

  • Danny Faltas

    Why didn’t they give the option too check people’s stats or combat record ? What’s the point of even having stats if it’s not even in the game CMON treyarch .

    • ItzSikh

      because people will start bitching around and shit

      • Guest

        Who cares. They bitch now. Just give a “I’m insecure about my noobish kdr and campy spm please hide” option to those who say it doesn’t matter at all.

    • TG Frontliner

      I think it’s good for people to know how they are performing in the scheme of things, but allowing other players to see your stats turns toxic quick. In past games people backed out of lobbies til they had a lobby with low KD people, similarly in BO2 zombies, people would back out if the other players didn’t have a sufficient rank. IMO I think it’s for the best.

    • [EV] BLISS

      People will just back out when they see my kd/r so….. haha, jk, but that’s probably a reason why they didn’t implement that feature in the game., so ppl won’t leave the lobby once they see a person with a 2+kd/r.

  • Deeezzz

    The only problems I have is sometimes I cant join my friends parties. I have to close the game completely go back on then I can join. Also I can only play like 2 games in a lobby after the 2nd game I either get kicked out or ill get put in a game where Im the in the match -.-

    • Kobrah

      Do you have open NAT?

      • Deeezzz

        My NAT says moderate so it should be working, sometimes Ill even back out a lobby to get something from the black market and I cant get back in a lobby. I basically have to close my game completely and get back on every hour or 2.

  • Astraxis

    Yes, but what about the endless PC issues? Wanna fix those first?

    • What issues?

      • Astraxis

        Black screens, frame stutters, NVIDIA driver issues, connectivity issues, mouse lag, the list goes on. I hear some people STILL can’t play the game, if they haven’t returned it already.

        • I haven’t really heard about those things nor have I experienced them. I’m sorry you are though. :/

          • Astraxis

            I, for one, am not getting the worst of it. It runs great, but the connectivity issues and frame drops are pretty universal. I’m hoping they get it fixed, because I already outplayed my two hour refund limit…

        • Keshav Bhat

          Stay tuned to @pcdev on Twitter for PC specific changes.

    • RdJokr

      That will have to wait until a big patch, which we may not see till the end of the month. The game runs ok on my potato PC though, so I got that going for me.

  • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

    How do you guys like my Vault Boy Paintjob?

    • ItzSikh

      SICK FAM

      • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

        THXX

      • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

        I think I’m gonna publish it

        • Slothigans

          How do you download them? I heard you can’t at least right now.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            The feature isn’t available. There’s currently a glitch that says you downloaded them after Liking one, but it does nothing. I’ve tested it out. Vahn said it’s coming later.

    • MichiganerE

      That’s dope.

      • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

        THX

      • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

        I’m probably going to publish it so that everyone can download it.

    • Jimmy

      Looks like donald trump

  • ScOott

    Seriously ive just had 6 games in a row on combine I had to leave the lobby, should be able to vote for the same map that many times ..

  • DaffyDubz

    Anyone have this on pc yet? Not updating for me 🙁

  • ClonetrooperDJ

    I so do not understand why everyone is complaining about BO3’s launch it has been the best launch yet me and my friends have not lagged out of a single game yet while in AW MW3 and ghosts we lagged out like crazy i have played every single COD since cod 1 and i have to say treyarch their games have always been the most enjoyable for me i have had a few lag issues in their games dont get me wrong but nowhere near as many as i do in IW or SHG games

  • ghosts sucks

    Yes, I’m happy now

  • Please fix theatre!

    • Kobrah

      What’s wrong with theatre mode?

      • You can’t record. You can’t bring more than one person. You can’t save clips. You can’t save videos. Controls are awful. There’s no dolly camera. It’s almost useless. 🙁

  • Siftblade

    Spawns definitely need more work. I literally spawned inside of somebody else while playing gun game, all I had to do was shoot a few times and I got the kill lol

    • Haha same. I was like wtf? Free kill for me! 😛

    • jooker-jr

      That person probably broke his controller.

  • Shantzonpoint

    I’m loving this game. I have occasional games where I’m definitely behind but overall the game is solid and fun. Weapons balancing is solid. Every gun has strengths and weaknesses which is perfect.

    The servers have been terrible with crashing on xb1 the last two days tho. Hopefully they’ll get that sorted out soon. I’ll be playing on ps4 until they do.

    • Ciaran

      Im getting alot of host migration on ps4. More so than any past cod game which is frustrating and also random disconnects. Overall its a good solid call of duty game though.

      • iiGMack

        i have yet to see a host migration on XB1, but have definitely seen the random disconnects. I’m with kobrah up there though, as long as I can stay in the game i don’t really notice too much lag, and i play hardcore where even the smallest amount of lag is a death sentence when you rush

  • Chris Rysdyk

    its cool that they are adding this but can we plz get a region search filter so sick of joining american mp and zombie servers from Australia and this is in peak time of australia. sigh

  • ColonelBazz

    Despite the problems I have on BO3 with lags etc. While it was not that bad during the beta. They do listen to their customers. People have been asking for hardcore dom, well there you have it xD
    However I’m wondering what happened to the double xp on the first weekend after launch, it was a Cod tradition for many years. Are they going to surprise us soon that it will be this weekend?

    • Drasadex

      Vahn said no to Double XP for launch weekend because he wanted to get an accurate idea of how long it’d take to prestige.

      • One Russian’s Revenge

        “Lol, even in the comments it says first.”

  • PhD FluSh

  • John

    Now add Player Counter

    • And123

      man is real or fake?

      • Drasadex

        Fake. It’s missing the “Featured” section above the Black Ops 3 logo.

        • RdJokr

          It’s not fake. It was actually there in the retail copy before the Day 1 patch update. Even on PC, sometimes you can somehow glitch the game, and the player counter would show up. It was there, but Treyarch removed it.

          • Drasadex

            ok

      • John

        It glitched for someone, then showed how many there were online

  • Spooky Cookie

    Imagine if they added a specialist weapons only gamemode

  • Guilherme Kaneko

    Just fix the LAG!!!

    • Xecho

      Getter better internet. There is no lag

      • Guilherme Kaneko

        There is lag. A lot of lag.

        • Kobrah

          I have had 50 ping almost every game. I only lag when it’s on my end (family on YouTube)

    • Where can I download the Internet?

  • JoZer805g

    They need to fix the in-game friends list on Black Ops 3.

    • Kobrah

      What’s wrong with it?

      • JoZer805g

        When I scrolled down the list, it forces me back to the top and all of my friends that are online aren’t showing up in the in-game friends list.

  • imBATMAN

    One in the chamber would also be nice <3
    But the game is great nonetheless 🙂

  • Undien1

    If these little patches look like this imagine what the actual patches will consist of. Really waiting to see what they do about matchmaking, what’s getting nerfed/buffed, and hit detection/damage. Killstreaks are in need of some umph. Ante up is a poor man’s hard-line and would be more productive if it actually performed as hard-line would. Especially in games such as TDM, where again its still stuck as 75 points. If Treyarch raised S&D why not TDM as well?

  • SuperImpact

    Someone tell Vohn on Twitter than the same map shouldn’t be voted more than 2/3 times in a row. Most of the matches are on Combine because of this.

    • ScOott

      Think u might of been in the same lobby as me! .. I just played that map 6 times in a row and it got voted for again, had to leave .. Imagine when nuketown hits public lobby, we will all be stuck playing that same map for the rest of bo3 .. Defiently needs sorting fast ..

      • Shantzonpoint

        Totally agree. Twice in a row should be max. I’m dreading when Nuketown hits the main rotation.

      • FazalGaming

        add me on psn gay boy

    • J4MES

      Yep! If you get into a Combine lobby; be prepared for everyone to vote for that for the rest of the night. I had about 5 in a row on there yesterday and although I ranked rapidly; it felt like playing the beta all over again!

    • Greasy Neckbeard

      that’s why you play in parties

      • SuperImpact

        I dont have any friends

        • Greasy Neckbeard

          We all know what’s gonna happen :/

          • Guywithbrains

            After Ghosts: “Lol! Ghosts is so bad game that I won’t buy another Infinity Ward’s Call of Duty!”

            After Advanced Warfare (remember people were hyped for a change and new movement before launch): “I can’t believe Sledgehammer Games made worse game than Ghosts!”

            After Black Ops 3 (now): “I CAN’T WAIT FOR GHOSTS 2 BECAUSE WE GET NEW INFINITY WARD’S CALL OF DUTY!!!11”

            After Ghosts 2: *insert hate comment here whatever it is going to be*

            Maybe peopke are expecting another legendary Call of Duty like MW1 and that is why people are dissapointed. However I have never dissapointed when I get new Call of Duty game because I never set my expectations too high.

  • Skillreks

    so I keep hearing people complain about disconnecting? I have yet to have that happen. Minnesota here. if you lag, it’s either the host of the game, or your internet connection. one thing I want them to fix the most is sometimes going into lobbies with 8 v 4 or 9 v 7 games… on chaos moshpit

    • zack

      I have 150 mbps(highest available other than fiber) and i get kicked offline all the time. I do get lag too but just not very often. The kicked offline thing is real annoying for a lot of people. Its not our internet it’s the server.

      • LovekillerX

        I pay for 100mbs connection, I have 4 ms ping and I have max bars that sometimes act wildly for every player in the match.

        • zack

  • White

    Sorry for the OT. I saw people having camo on their gun in the pregame lobby, is it a bug or im dumb that i cant figure out how to put them? Thanks (Sorry if i made some errors im not english )

    • zack

      You’ll have to make a gun in gunsmith with your camo and paint job. Then go to specialist customization and choose that weapon as the one they hold.

      • White

        Thanks a lot 🙂

  • zack

    Also another problem that is really annoying… Whenever I go to any type of list in bo3, the selection bar just goes crazy and zings up and down. Like to choose a playlist or create a class ext.
