General Atomic’s Avenger Drone
Its first flight occurred on April 4th 2009. Unlike the previous MQ-1 Predator and MQ-9 Reaper (Predator B) drones, the Avenger is powered by a turbofan engine, and its design includes stealth features such as internal weapons storage, and an “S” shaped exhaust for reduced heat and radar signature. The Avenger will support the same weapons as the MQ-9 Reaper.


UPDATE: Yesterday’s animation has been changed to a video and includes voice:

The newest teaser image on CallofDuty.com has gone live but what does it mean?.. And is there a hidden message while it scrolls?

Let us know in the comments section what you think it means and we’ll update the post if we hear anything credible..

UPDATE: Yesterday’s code has been changed! According to @Telixion, the code are coordinates that point to the Los Angeles Staples Center where the NBA playoffs will be.

These teasers keep getting interesting. An all new animated image has gone live. This image is just many numbers/letters that keep changing. We already tried to see if it was a location, and came up with nothing. We will keep decoding and keep you posted.

UPDATE: Here’s one theory from CoDzForums:


April 24th Unlock:


According to @Oldarobot, in Roman history theres a reference to Tactitus and how he saw an eclipse, “Soon after the death of Augustus, Tacitus mentions a lunar eclipse, which has been identified with the eclipse of September 27, 14 CE.” Also Tacitus in Latin means “secret”. In a strange coincidence earlier today, www.TACITUS.com became active today minutes after CallOfDuty.com tweeted the image. Unfortunately, there is a lot of evidence piled up that suggest the web site is NOT part of a viral marketing campaign..

And minutes before the “TACITUS” logo was revealed on CallOfDuty.com we received an exclusive image of one of their “products”:

    maybe the perk spy

    • ps3fuckedintheass

      I like this theory.

  • Azurepc

    Please check out my theory here: /watch?v=MT38NonklCQ

  • Macrox

    Already tried pulling it frame by frame. Doesn’t seem like there’s a hidden message. To anyone putting this in context with multiplayer. Any promotional material at this stage is always about single-player. With the CoD series MP is revealed much later to not spoil any possible segments of it because it’s basically still a work in progress.

  • TheoryGaming

    Hey you guys go check out our video on youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NhgT73ZPyqc is all the info on black ops 2 so far also we are working on the 4th easter egg thing now sub so you can keep up to date also we give link charlie intel in all the videos

  • Connoryates09

    These letters can be seen faintly when going frame by frame – WZQOH

  • TheoryGaming

    we slowed it down and it does come out to be WZQOH but we have no idea what it means….

  • TheoryGaming

    i think we got it video will be up soon

    • Macrox

      Now im curious what you got from that because i thought about those letters and could not come up with anything.

      • TheoryGaming

        well if you go to morewords.com and type in wzqoh it comes up with who and how and that fits in with the he enemy could be anywhere(how) and it could be anyone(who) but people are also saying that 4:13 = 4 mos & 13 days from now is the 8th anniversary of the NASA Genesis crash. Ties into the space theme which the space theme would be the code name eclipse

  • Xeccess

    WZQOH hidden in text

  • Noah

    I came up with ZQOH

    • Adam lix

      Me too

  • Nonamenic

    Its the new spy perk in the game where you appear as a friendly on the enemy radar (green triangle). Its called Spy and i found it on your website.

    If you use this info, please give credit to me. Youtube: VideosFromtheFuture

    • ps3fuckedintheass

      someone already mentioned it an hour ago below, and it sounds good to me.

  • Dean Muckle

    One person has come up with the idea that it is could be 4 Days 13 (4:13) hours away from the multiplayer gameplay teaser.

    • Multiplayer will not be revealed until September

    • Roxas3510

      Actually that makes sense. In 4 days and 13 hours from the time the picture went up, the it will be May 1st. Of course they aren’t revealing multiplayer, but they will be revealing the game.

  • Dhgf4m0us

    Umm now the picture is gone off of Callofduty.com I think they are messing with us

    • Dhgf4m0us

      nevermind it’s their. What the fuck!?

  • twik

    Spy wont even be a perk itd be uneven and too over powerd , and will piss off alot of people if they put that in cuss everyone will probaly be using it so its most likely to be part of the campain like comon imagine if you were near a high killstreak and you die cuss the guy next to you showed up as a friendly guy when he was really a enemy it would be stupid

  • Feraltomahawk

    I have decoded it skype me if you want the answer. feralpartykids

    • Feraltomahawk

      PS I don’t know how to make youtube vids so just credit me if you use it


    I think this might mention in the campaign that friendlies will turn into enemies just like in MW2 with General Shepard. Either that or there are a lot of people hiding in the campaign. Anyone else agree?

  • XxGamingLT

    Woah, That coordinates is Near E3, Do you think there is a big intel Release there?

  • Broncosnfl15

    Man this is the exciting part of a new release of a game………….maybe it is just a quote from the actual campaign :/

  • Apocity

    The first image where is says “The enemy could be anywhere and anyone.”
    It reminds me of one of the perks on the list you posted not long ago, where the enemy can appear as a friendly on your radar. If so.. FML

  • Stbearns

    I still think we need to wait to have the coordinates stop cycling through. Treyarchs building is very close by also. I love this marketing campaign.

  • Twinsie

    This is not to promote my youtube channel or anything since I don’t upload videos, but I’ve made an youtube video showing all the different coordinates in the code that previously marked the places in Asia on the map that now has been updated to mark other places. If you would like to check it out here’s is a link:

    Thanks 🙂

  • iJoshX
    • alex

      i give you props thats pretty cool and makes complete sense

  • Jaun

    360burst sucks!

  • AmazingSuperHick

    The new picture – is one of the rotors on the quadrotor thing and the bigger drone above it seems to be the General Atomics Avenger drone.

  • AmazingSuperHick

    Anyone notice the numbers match up to the reveal event of Black Ops’ Multiplayer? Credit goes to @sgtmcsponge for showing me.

  • Nonamenic



  • Nonamenic

    Watch Black ops 1 customization video, at 7 sec, it gives exact same coordinates as in the teaser thing


    • AmazingSuperHick

      Yes….this is already known. Also…the video has been posted in the above article.

  • MarioLADotelli

    What’s in the background of the ‘enemy could be anywhere..’ video?

  • Aaron96

    UAV! OMG, I was not expecting that to be in the next COD. These pics on the COD website r useless. There’s a code that know one can work out, a word Tacitus who no one knows what is means, a UAV well no **** Sherlock, properly that Quadrotor pic/video was the only useful info.

    • tellmeadeshina

      Actually it isn’t a UAV, it is a UCAV, and the C stands for Combat. So it is like the Reaper in MW3.

  • Mitch

    What does it mean that we’re not ready for the future? So I’m net ready for the next second? Fuuuuuuuuuuuu

  • Aaron96

    My theory is that Black Ops 2 is about the singularity. Hers’s the definition “A point in the future (often set at or around 2030 A.D.) beyond which overwhelming technical changes (esp. the development of superhuman artificial intelligence) make reliable predictions impossible”
    That phrase fits the description of a singularity happening perfectly (a sudden technological advancement) + its set to happen around when BO2 will be set + Raven Software help make the CODs now so they would be great at this (they made a game on it.)

  • Darkshadow 15

    Are those textures THAT low-res or it is just me? -.-

  • Twinsie

    Omg there’s hidden letters in the “The future is not as far of as most people think – we’re not ready for it”. I couldn’t slow it down enough to check if there was more letters but so far I’ve found “B” in future, “I” in off and “Z” in people!!!

    • The Flash


  • Mitch

    new picture, but it doesn’t work for me if I click on it!

  • Aaron96

    what on earth is that new image off? The graphics look good though.

  • AmazingSuperHick

    Doesnt look like handcuffs. Or a zombie. Some old man with some wort of wristband on or something. Woods or Mason maybe?

    • Macrox25

      If it is woods it must be a flashback since he died in black ops. An interesting theory i got send to me that it could be mason, hudson or weaver being briefed after being captured and then forced to work with the CIA or FBI. On the wiki it states that after black ops mason, hudson and weaver became hunted by the US for acts of treason.

      • AmazingSuperHick

        Woods didnt die in Black Ops. He is a prisoner at Hanoi

        • Macrox25

          At the current time that is speculation. He had to survive that grenade if that were real. His wiki page speculates that the hanoi status in his file is to lure Mason, Hudson and Weaver to capture and or kill them. http://callofduty.wikia.com/wiki/Frank_Woods

  • The Flash

    could be old man, but to me it looks like a zombie in Zombie labs, maybe there conducting tests on it, why it has handcuffs

    • AmazingSuperHick

      Its not handcuffs. Last i checked handcuffs dont have clasps like watches and some bracelets

  • pride

    I don’t know why, but for the hand, I keep thinking of this. It looks similar to Woods’ watch.

    • Kierenaustin

      it is woods

  • Callofthedead75

    The picture is mason and his medals on the wall. That’s my guess.

  • Twinsie

    The second newest picture (not the one with the zombie/old man) looks to me like the front of a riffle. Scope on the top, the barrel in the middle and a noobtube / grenade launcher in the bottom.

  • Kierenaustin

    the picture is woods from black ops 1 matching tattoos

  • Kierenaustin

    matching tattoos

  • Наско Гаджев

    Can somebody make from that loading spinning image a mouse cursor theme for Ubuntu? I think it would be sooooo awesome to have it as a mouse cursor… it looks so close to the Samaritan from Person Of Interest, but cooler…
