    Pls no specialists.

    • CyberWolf

      Amen to that.

    • BradyAlucard

      Weren’t they leaked? I don’t mind them.

      • Former

        They belong in Destiny.

        • BradyAlucard

          They make the people we play as unique, though, and they’re relatively balanced for the most part. They don’t feel completely broken (despite Firebreak’s Purifier but it’s only used a couple of times per game), and they add more content to the game without having to replace something from the Create-a-Class.

          • Former

            Yeah..but they’re still more annoying to die to than they are fun to use, IMO. They’re catered towards the nooby player.

          • BradyAlucard

            I don’t think of them as being catered to noob players, I think of them as another streak to have. I don’t even think that they’re glorified deathstreaks, either (well, more like Support streaks, but Specialists aren’t nearly as OP). I thought they’d be rage-inducing but the actual weapons in BO3 are more annoying to die against than the Specialists to me and they were balanced and executed properly IMO.

          • Former

            Getting killed by a gun at least tells you the guy had to actually aim and kill you…Getting gravity spiked? Hived? Rippered? No effort involved whatsoever, and no chance of avoiding it either. I’ll take dying to a gun any day over some random insta-kill BS.

    • I use to defend them but i want them out now. Getting killed by a War Machine or a Rippee boils my blood more than ever right now. I’m losing my patience when comes to getting killed by those things

      • Former

        Yeah. The fun you have using them doesn’t outweigh the pain you feel getting killed by them.

    • jordanxbrookes

      Sorry to burst your bubble but Specialists are in this game.

      • Former

        Hopefully less annoying ones.

      • Aidan

        I read somewhere that you can choose from select “power weapons”, but you aren’t assigned to a specific character, instead you can pick something called an archetype, which is like medic, assault, assassin, whatever else there is. I personally hope this is true, because I love playing as a medic on BF4 and helping out my team, and I’d love to do it in Call of Duty as well.

  • Mick

    Anyone else think the whole taunts and gestures thing is childish? To me it takes away that military arcade shooter that I’m used to playing from the past cods. I hope they don’t return. Just my opinion though.

    • ScOott

      Childish? I know loads of army men and they all pretty much bust a move when they popped a cap in someone’s ass..

      I’d rather have them keep it in. If we got to have some goofy thing I’d rather it be a celebration at the end instead of some fecking ginger bread men running round the map…

      • Mick

        Things like the dab, drakes dance move, etc. That’s a bit childish and I understand that they do it for fun and gimmicks, but for an arcade shooter it just doesn’t seem right to me.

        • CyberWolf

          Word. I think shit like that would fit better in games like Overwatch. I feel like shooting myself every time I see crap like the dab.

        • ScOott

          Meh doesn’t bother me.. I don’t care if it stays or goes tbh.. it’s one of the last things I think we should be worried about lol..

          • CyberWolf

            That’s true as well…

          • Mick

            That is true, lol. I do agree with you on the whole ginger bread people running around like on AW. That was over the top fucking gay lol.

          • Triggered

            What’s wrong with things being gay?

          • Nothing. It’s gay

      • Capten ermirica

        You tell um scoott lad.

      • Ken Ward

        Really? You know a bunch of idiot military then, if they are stupid enough to dance around on a battlefield during a firefight. That’s a great way to get killed.

        • ScOott

          Yh.. I don’t know any military men… I made it up… You got me mannnn

      • Scott

        When you say: “I know loads of army men and they all pretty much bust a move when they popped a cap in someone’s ass” are you referring to real life war or video games? Because if you’re talking about real life, killing someone even any enemy is not something that someone would take great joy in, if they are in their right mind…

        • ScOott

          Lol i know dude.. I was joking..

    • CyberWolf

      I’m with you on that one. They’re really fucking stupid. I only ever use 2 or 3 that aren’t too out of character. I mostly don’t give a shit about taunts and gestures.

    • BradyAlucard

      I think Taunts and Gestures read as more “arcadey” than anything else.

    • Gamerazor247

      Hrmm… Supply Drops/, Weapon balancing, overpriced DLC, Aging engine < Emotes, Gingerbread mask, Bright tone, Petty shit

      …Makes sense…

    • What’s more childish is the gimmick maps and stupid outfits. I can deal with dancing. But colorful outfits and stupid maps need to go. same with advanced movement. Love that to go as well

      • CoDforever

        There is 4 stupid maps out 29 in black ops 3, calm down kid

        • Again you fucking brainless retard, I dont care. Still tired of seeing them you stupid fuck

          • CoDforever

            I’m tired of seeing you on here as well, but your just 1 of many other users so I can’t complain.

          • I wasn’t talking about you fucking stupid cunt. I was talking about the gimmick maps. You think I actually give a fuck if you’re here or not? At most youre insanely fucking retarded so all I see you as is entertainment

          • CoDforever

            i was just using your logic against you 🙂

            You seem like a raging autistic 9 year old, jesus chill out man.

          • And it didn’t make any sense, so you really just made yourself look stupid but then again, not a shock.

            Anyway, as far as raging. I like to rage and whatnot, but that doesn’t exactly equal to autism. Again, you made yourself look stupid. Literally end yourself

        Totally agree. I’m all for customization but keep it sensible and relevant to the game/story.

        • SPAWNST4R

          Its only EVER going to get worse, Its making them $hit-Tons of cash

    • Capten ermirica

      Absolutely buddy. But I fear the kiddy crap is here to stay. Wouldn’t surprise me if the age rating on the game drops soon and they cram it full of even more shite. I’m still holding out a bit of faith for infinity wards reveal this week but it’s awesome to know we have MWR to fall back on🙂

    • Scott

      Destiny has taunts and gestures, then B03 copied it and now IW, so many copycats…But yeah, its stupid as shit!

  • I hope Relevations is playable there. I want to see gameplay asap

    • NOVA_POLARIS

      It will be.

    • Keshav Bhat

      Don’t think it is. Official wording says Black Ops III DLC 4 Multiplayer.

  • Eric

    Why cant you douchebags spell first and second correctly

    • Because that’s fucking gay

    • jordanxbrookes

      Because we’re fagits.

  • DeadZombieGaming 12

    Excited… I am just wondering what the Assassin, Archetype, Medic shit was…
    I guess it is the return of Ghosts starting class system. I liked it

  • Dallas Phillips

    Watch all the bandwagon hate decipate Sept. 2nd I have confidence in IW to dish out a good cod. I’m done with bo3. Mw3 is my fav cod until I die. IW ball is in your court

    • SPAWNST4R

      Its not all bandwagon, a lot is legitimate hate for the sub par kiddie catered $Grubbing shite they been releasing for years now. Eitherway this is easily the least antisipated CoD to date, literally #NoHype

  • Aldo

    I know it says there will be talk about MWR but is it confirmed anywhere that they’re gonna show some mp footage from that too?
