1) In terms of graphics, does it appear like its running on the MW3 engine or the BO Engine? Improved?

CI: It appears like the game is running on an improved BO engine, the graphics have been enhanced but some certain things remain the same, such as the details within buildings, but you can easily tell it has been upgraded a generous amount.

2) Whats your favorite map and why?

CI: Aftermath: The color on the map is fantastic giving of a great vibrance. The map structure has a bit for every type of player, routes to run directly into each other, flanking right round the back and also good sniping spots.

3) What did you like most?

CI: I was most impressed by the all new scorestreak, I just thought this was simply brilliant and a great way to reward every player, making the game more balanced and fun for everyone. Along with this the actual scorestreak are fantastic some new and some old a nice mix of both.

4) What did you dislike most?

CI: Possibly the most hardest question, the only thing I noticed is sometimes the hit detection could be a bit strange but this only happened once or twice. But then again, it is the alpha version.

5) As far as a learning curve, will any of the changes make it easier or harder for new players?

CI: I believe new players will find Black Ops 2 most welcoming, it offers an ease into the game through attachments on guns and also with the new eSports mode if you decide to play it, you will only be against players of your level.

6) Favorite Scorestreak and why?

CI: My favorite scorestreak would be “Swarm”. Why? When you first deploy it and get about 2 kills in 10 seconds it appears disappointing for the work you have done, however 10 seconds later and a hige bombardment of hunter killer drones “Swarm” the enemy racking you up a hige amount of kills.

7) How would you compare “Hit detection”? Similar to BO or MW3?

CI: To be honest, I would compare the hit detection to a more defined Modern Warfare 3, it seems very similar to it.

8) What’s one thing you hope they add prior to November?

CI: I would like to see more “Fun” weapons with the game which would be the crossbow and ballastic knife. However if the crossbow does make its return I would love to see some different attachments for this (Different bolts, sights). Its rumored the crossbow is in MP, however it was no where to be seen in the demo.

9) Favorite Create a Class setup?

CI: Primary: SCAR
Primary Attachments: Reflex, Silencer, Extended Mag.
Perk 1: Lightweight
Perk 2: Fast Hands
Perk 3: Dead Silence

Lethal: Semtex
Tactical: Concussion

Wildcard: Primary Gunfigther

10) Most memorable moment while playing?

CI: I was fortunate enough to have Hastr0 CODcast the first game I played, which I went 35-5 on. For him to see the leaderboard and shout “…AND CHARLIE INTEL IS GOING HUGE ON 35-5,
destroying everything!…” was pretty awesome. But overall, Gamescom on the whole was my best memory.

    Hopefully the crossbow has an attachment that removes the explosive tip, but guarantees a kill if you hit a guy with the bolt.

    • MeisseN

      With a explosive tip it guarantees a kill if you hit anyone as well! You might get more that 1, and you might get 1 even if you didnt hit anybody with it since it causes explosion. So what’s the point of using one point to remove that…

      • Argy

        I think what he is looking for is remove the explosive tip and get a silent, 1 hit kill weapon. A few other things I think they could add are an ACOG sight, an electric tip, some sort of range-extending piece to make the arrows fly straighter for longer. etc.

        • James K

          That’s true. I hope Treyarch add some customization to the crossbow.

          It will give Crysis 3 a run for its money(the bow)

          • well C3 is gonna have explosive arrows 😀

          • Dhgf4m0us

            Crossbow Camo for sure. Like the Easter egg they had back in Black Ops before they removed it

  • ??anonymous??


    • Pass that feedback to Treyarch on twitter, @Treyarch. They want all the feedback to improve BO2 before launch

      • ??anonymous??

        I can´t they never answer my tweets

        • Hunter13

          Just do it, they will read it anyways.

  • ??anonymous??

    How much kills did you get with one swarn???


    the its like mw3 comment, has got me worried.

    • Miguel Torres92

      He means the hit detection bro. Black ops hit detection was crappy compared to Mw3. The hit detection was like COD4

  • MeisseN

    It’s weird since there’s a screenshot showing a pickup icon of crossbow and a soldier wielding it in3rd person. This screenshot can be found in one article named Weapons in Black Ops 2 Mp, right here in CharlieIntel. So crossbow is confirmed.

    • hello 😀

      • James K

        Go back to the MP1st website! >:D

        • HOW DID YOU FIND ME????

          • MeisseN

            How did u find me then x_x…. He can find you in the way you found me 😀

          • im following you 😀

          • James K

            Yeah we can go with that…

          • now im gonna follow you BWHAHAHAHAAAA

          • Mmkay


          • (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻ you! ლ(ಠ益ಠლ) i love you ಥ◡ಥ

  • Jacob

    the favorite class set up wrong in the perk 2 is fast hands when fast hands is an attachment not a perk

    • Nighthawk_0430

      Actually, Fast Mag is the attachment, Fast hands is the correct perk

      • Argy

        I hope that Fast Mag has “Slight of Hand” written in the description somewhere. And the Laser Sight should have “Steady Aim” somewhere. Else this will be the first game in the series where those have not appeared in some form or another…

        • Nope

          They don’t.

          • Miguel Torres92

            Fast mag is sleight of hand & the laser sight is steady aim. Remember only attachments affect your gun now. Like remember deep impact being a perk? Now it’s FMJ & it’s an attachment

          • Argy

            To say that with confidence when the game is not finished is a mistake. Anything can happen.

  • Kevin Anthony Seepersad

    um Charlie INTEL… one big question… is the vector k10 good just like in mw2? i was so happy to see your weapons post that vector is coming.. also is the msmc better than the mp7 or the other way around…

  • Jason

    I disagree with the graphics, lighting is the only thing they changed, everything else is MW3.

  • Mark

    I was watching a video and the player picked up a SCAR-H with 21 rounds. I assume it was already fired, but does this mean the SCAR-H now has a 30 rounds magazine? I didn’t expect it to, but if any of you would reply, it would make my day. Thanks!
