The new #BackinBlack teaser trailer for Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 is filled with numbers and letters floating across the screen…many of those numbers lead to locations, others hint at modes. In this post, we’ll try to breakdown everything we’ve seen from around the web.

Quotes: The new teaser featured quotes and voice overs from previous Black Ops titles:

From Black Ops 1:

  • “This should help you remember everything.”
  • “The numbers Mason..what do they mean?”
  • “Everything you know…is wrong.”

From Black Ops 2: 

  • “Your life will be consumed by absolute loss.”
  • “He doesn’t need his own weapons. He’s got ours.”
  • “They’ll always need men like us.”

Potentially from Black Ops 3:

  • “Our greatest barrier is our own fear. Our own doubts. The only thing holding us back is how far we are willing to go.”

More information: 

  • At the beginning of video, coordinates: 1.300° N, 103.8° E, which is a New Town Primary School in Singapore
  • Another pair of coordinates: 30.0500° N, 31.2333° E, which leads to the 6th October Bridge in Cairo, Egypt. This bridge commemorates the day of “The Crossing” which was the start of the October War (Yom Kipper War) in 1973.
  • Many hieroglyphics symbols appear throughout the video, no clear pattern or relationship can be identified
  • The number “115” (referring to element 115) is in the teaser, signaling the return of Zombies

  • Different, new faction logo spotted; doesn’t seem to be similar to the trident one previously teased here

  • Another coordinate pair: 47.3667° N, 8.5500° E, which leads to the Gefängnis prison in Zürich, Switzerland.
  • Numbers, coordinates, etc are all circling around in a way that resembles the Call of Duty: Black Ops 1 box art, image via @AZZATRU:


  • On the knife of the character, there appears to be Mandarin symbols, which translates into 5, 10, 4 and could mean “54”.
  • Trident logo, which was teased in the tree image, makes an appearance in the trailer

    Am I the only one who kinda wishes they’d done this in a week or so?

    The wait until 26th April is going to be agonising xD

    • That Lucas Kid

      Haha yeah

    • Daniel

      Same here

  • Andrew Venegas

    The black ops series is the best series ever!!!!?

  • Jimmy Saville (Not actually)

    The Game will be set before 2025 since Woods was killed by Menendez in Black Ops II so it will be Present or Past (Most likely Present in my opinon).

    • That Lucas Kid

      So in between BO1 and BO2.

      I guess that could make sence because in the teaser trailer the third 1 appeared in the middle.

      • JimmySaville (Not actually)

        Probably after 2014-18 and flashbacks and the dream that Salim tries to help Mason with and is under interrogation a second time.

    • Daniel

      Marketing leak suggests exos and future

      • Jimmy Saville (Not actually)

        Link to this?

    • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

      Woods actor is an actor in the game so it will carry on from Alex being alive I bet.

  • Guest

    “Everything you know… is wrong” is from the Black Ops 1 reveal trailer, don’t think it was in BO2.

  • I guess Dr.Salim is talking to a guy in that prison?

  • That Lucas Kid

    smh. Marketing image leak looks futuristic.

  • Daniel

    Everything you know is wrong is from bo1

  • Daniel

    It is on the future and it has exos #confirmed
    The hype is dead

    • xiSpeedy

      we don’t know that exos are in the game

    • Kobrah

      Exos don’t necessarily have to have the ‘jet pack’/boost jump mechanic

  • Haydn
    • CrowReap .

      exosuits are gonna kill this game

      • UrbanGamer69

        My only thought is…………..

    • Tricky VIk

      “I’ll always play Call of Duty no matter what they put in it, it may be for good or bad, but I enjoy the game always.”

  • ColourOfBrown

    I heard you go back in time with Ryan Mason (David Mason’s son)

    • It hasn’t been officialy confirmed. But the concept would give us so many opportunitys.

  • DJ Khaled

    who else can’t wait until next january when everyone will be complaining about this game.

    • CrowReap .

      LOL I knew that’s going to happen, just like every cod game. But what really going to amaze me is the campaign, the bo1 and bo2 campaign was amazing. Bo3’s campaign is going to be good as well.

    • idkwhatmynameis

      I just read some of the posts when bo2 was out and its just one complaint after another(pistols,shottys,snipers,lmgs,lag,bright colors,dexterity,micro dlc).

      I’m seriously praying for exos and whatever bullshit treyarch can think of just to see people whine their ass off.

      • DJ Khaled Same thing in black op and MW3 days, this community is very bipolar.

        • idkwhatmynameis

          No doubt about it. Bipolar, insane, flip flopping on stuff based on the who’s the dev. Smh at em all.

          • Choppabro2psn

            You can always rid yourself of this community.

          • idkwhatmynameis

            Thanks I’ll keep that in mind.
            Could you do me a favor tho…..I told this guy crows to go f himself. Do mind joining him? See the thing is I think he’s just a lonely bitter soul who needs a life partner. And here you are just as lonely and bitter. Only right you guys share a thread. What do you say?

          • idkwhatmynameis

            I can??

      • King Cee

        Ikr I really think it’s impossible to please the cod community now cod in future

        • idkwhatmynameis

          Kuz people don’t truly know what they want. One minute they want change, when theygget it, its not the exact change they would have liked. Then they go back to more classic stuff and get criticized for not being.creative.

          • Shankocity

            Of course there’s no way to please them. But all those people that rage about the game buy the next one anyway so what do the devs care?

          • They did a good job at creativeity some just believe they may have takin it a little overboard.

      • COD Freakk~

        It’s gonna have exos xD

        • UrbanGamer69

          I Really Don’t Care About this Exos Or Whatever You Call it. Black ops 3 gonna be good.(Deal With It)

          • Kobrah

            That picture doesn’t seem to match what you said

          • UrbanGamer69

            it’s because of Boredom with this community

          • COD Freakk~

            I love Black Ops.
            I actually get all the achievements xD Imma fuck shit up this year lol

    • carson kelly

      I don’t get it these people put a lot of hart and time into their game it’s like this some kids in the world don’t get to try these games so you guys should stop complaining and appreciate Call of Duty

    • Choppabro2psn

      Only if it’s bad and deserves to be. I’m not going to hype black ops 3 up, and people who will do the same have the right to complain. Call of duty is not perfect, but we are all fans.

  • Haydn

    Looks like the source code has been look at on the CoD website – reveals the jist of the game

  • I pray to god that Exo-suits are Campaign only.
    AND Definitely keep them out of Zombies, I see a single exo-zombie i’m not only un-pre-ordering, but i’m shoving that exo ^%#@^*^%#$^$%^$#%%…..

  • At 42 seconds in the lower middle of the trailer, there’s another symbol not in the article

    • Also these weird symbols at 16 seconds.

    • JoZer805g

      Pokemon confirmed for BO3

  • Kill Denied


  • prabh dhatt

    Bottom left at :15 second mark there is a new snapshot gjost

    • prabh dhatt

      I zoomed in look

  • Alex

    It all look fine and dandy BUT….. it’s looking a little too futuristic for my liking

  • zombies!!!!!!

  • mason 117

    I figured something out… When the quotes from Black Ops 1 are sounding, the numbers and stuff form the pose of the guy in the cover of the box art, same for the black ops 2 quotes, the guy in the cover art with the gun and knife, and then when the supposedly quote from black ops 3 comes up, it forms the cover art for black ops 3, and if you look closely, the guy looks like a cyborg or something like that because he has robotic arms…

  • Christopher Wigington

    I am super excited for this game. I’ve been playing cod for 11 years and to be honest am only gonna buy treyarch’s games. I believe out of all the groups they can come up with very fluid and cohesive environments to spend my money on. I am sure I can find many other good games to fill the years in-between.

  • World At War the True real guns of War not these FAKE LASER guns. We would like the Real Bouncing BETTYS MP40’s TANKS all the TRUE good stuff is what your Missing.

    • CrazyCamie456

      MP40’s Were broken to all the hell, it was all that was used in WAW… Tanks were more unrealistic than surviving a shot to the head.

  • McToasty207

    For the single player I’d like Treyarch to go with another Batshit crazy story line like the original Black Ops I’m talking schizophrenia, brainwashing and CIA black operations, because it felt fresher than “Go fight those foreigners”. Multiplayer perhaps just refine player mobility like AW did and perhaps simplify all the create a class to make everything a bit more balanced. Zombies I’ll take whatever they’ve got but playing a lot of Bloodborne recently and Destiny a while I’d love to see their being a longer progressive ARPG mode alongside the classic wave mode.

  • Choppabro2psn

    It’s funny seeing all the fanboys who see cod as ‘holy’ and bash others for complaining. I mean, closed mouths don’t get fed, so the community needs to speak up in order for the problematic things to get fixed. You may only praise cod and all of it’s flaws ’round here.

  • Dont even wanna wait i WANT IT NOWW

  • MW3rocker73

    There are 3 sets of coordinates in the video and the other set leads to some place in Switzerland

  • Marry_Me_Vince_Cable

    The Gefängnis prison in Zürich, Switzerland. Or, as it is known in English apparently, the prison prison…

  • damian updike

    i want this game right now
