More leaks keep coming from files included within the Black Ops 3 Beta on PC. Now it looks like we might have our first look at the classified “9th Specialist” in Black Ops 3. There’s no way to tell if this will make the final game or not but it looks pretty close to us. The new specialist ability appears to be a flamethrower and according to @FineNerds, the sonar looking ability is called heatwave and it creates a sphere around you that stuns and burns enemies for about 3 seconds.

Check out the gameplay below and let us know what you think in the comments..

UPDATE: We’ve been asked to take down the image showing the Specislist in the main menu. The specialist looks very similar to the Hunter in Destiny except with red pants:

    Oh dear lord…lol

  • KernosT

    glitch and rejack needs to go.Can’t 3arc make one fucking CoD game without putting in some bullshit. Oh wait… its CoD,there just can not be a CoD game without bullshit in it.

    • shantzonpoint

      You nailed it. It’s cod. Heaven forbid they make a game where pure skill simply wins.

      • FazalGaming

        Cod 4?

        • ccrows

          Best COD of all time. IMO of course… 🙂

        • shantzonpoint

          Yep since cod4 the series has been a steady digression as far as it being a skill based game.

    • lajwp

      Lmao, “glitch” is fucking worthless, it’s not OP it’s UP. Seriously needs a buff, and rejack already was nerfed.

    • ccrows

      I still haven’t seen Rejack in action so I can’t comment on it. (had people in the lobby with it, just haven’t seen it yet)

      Glitch I’ve seen, but I rather see somebody use that then the noob cannon TBH…

    • Andrey Martim

      Both Glitch and Rejack are easy to counter… I got lots of kills against users of that… Rejack itself is useless, basically a double-kill pass. Maybe them are better for objective based modes…

    • spartanelite

      Glich is trash and rejack is now useless so stfu

    • Zenfluence

      Crazy that someone can complain about 2 abilities that MIGHT get you ONE kill on average…just nuts, sound like a frikkin scrub to be honest. How tf can you not kill someone getting up slowly out of a [email protected]$$ green fart cloud is beyond me.

      Hopefully they include a “no abilities” game mode so bad people will chill out crying about crap that’s easy to deal with..

  • kwksksks

    The “sonar” ability is just a glitch, it happens when you activate the second ability, “HeatWave” but the glitch is that the visual effect still sticks with you. Heatwave burns and stuns people near you, wothout killing you. Looks to be OP.

      I appreciate you commenting this without linking me 🙂

      • lulzo71

        They should’ve given you credit 🙁

        • Toolio

          Why? This was old news on the Steam forums before they tried to take the credit in the wider public domain. It’s just nobody bothered to make a big deal of such files as they were accessible and visible to all.

      • Antal120


        • FineNerds

          Thank you 🙂

    • sion

      16 maps then cool

    • FazalGaming

      Why Nuketown X if it’s the third?

      • Guywithbrains

        It is probably name from alpha phase when they tried to figure out a name for it. Now it is called Nuk3town.

      • Antal120

        They’re all internal names.

      • ccrows

        Don’t care what they call it, just hope that they expand the map a bit…

        • Tristan Isaac

          Expand the map? It’s a fan favourite map because it’s small! All fights are centered in the middle. Why would you expand it?

      • blackopstraceur

        It’s called NUK3TOWN and it’s a pre-order bonus

    • Aidan

      Ethiopia is Code name for Hunted.
      And I’m pretty sure Bio-dome is Code name for Combine.

      • Stefan Lang

        I thought that was code name for Evac?

        • Evac is apartment

          • Aidan

            No, that makes no sense.
            Pretty sure that ‘Spire’ is Evac.

          • I don’t know.

          • jordanxbrookes

            Vonderhaar said on a Periscope stream that Evac was codenamed “mp_apartments”.

          • Aidan

            Didn’t know that.

        • Aidan

          A bio-dome is a type of garden. So it would only make sense.

      • dominick amaro

        I thought sector was combine

        • Aidan

          Probably going to be a new map.

    • Kyle Soule

      So these are just the codenames?

    • Davy Crockett

      Incredibly funny how this guy got sent cease and desist letters, was threatened to be sued etc. Activision. You don’t want people to go through your files and post “leaks”? DO NOT SHIP IT WITH THEM THEN. It’s that bloody simple, and if I was that guy posting that stuff, I’d laugh at Activsion for trying to tell me what I can go through and share on my own damn machine. Screw those guys and I’ll see you in court with a 10 billion dollar lawsuit. Your ass will pay heavy for trying to tell me what I can do with my own private property. To those who say I don’t own the game, no, I own my hard drive that the game is written on. Meaning I OWN the code that is on there, and I will go through it and post what I see. I may not be able to monetize said code, but it is mine sure enough. And I have EVERY right to post and share and look at whatever is happening in my machine.

  • Being a video game Pyromaniac I will definitely be using this Specialist.

  • Guest

    Also Sentry Gun scorestreak confirmed!!

  • Guywithbrains

    That looks so awesome BUT what have they done with duration of flamethrower and it also kills so quickly. Definitely one of the overpowered specialists for now.

  • Guest

    Also Sentry Gun scorestreak confirmed

    • ccrows

      Those things were beastly in BO2… 🙂

      • Guest

        Yes i’m really looking forward to using it in BO3. Because it was not very good in Ghosts and AW

    • jordanxbrookes

      Hopefully it’s like the Black Ops Sentry Gun and not OP like the Black Ops 2 one.

      • Guest

        Never tried the first Black Ops, and never considered BO2 Sentry Gun OP. It was very good, but you could take it out easily with a EMP grenade. I hope it will be good in BO3 as well, because it was complete ass in Ghosts and AW

  • ccrows

    I wonder how Flack Jack is going to work with that?

    “Flak Jacket Description – Takes less damage from enemy explosives and Flames”

    I know in OG BO, Flack Jacket Pro made you 100% immune to fire, but I don’t think it will be the same here but who knows?… *shrugs*

    • Guywithbrains

      I think it will be as sentence says: you’ll take less damage from flames but can still get killed by flamethrowers but slower.

      • ccrows

        That’s what I kinda originally figured, but the question will be how much less damage?

        I guess will find out soon enough…

  • The Inquisitor


    • Wow, that’s oddly satisfying to hear them scream like they’re genuinely scared and in lots of pain.

      • DEMOLITION12

        you might be autistic

    • anonanon863

      TY, pretty good!

  • LovekillerX

    So they got another OP specialist. What were they thinking of? That duration is so long and count in the power of flamethrower… I want to see some serious balancing as soon as possible.

    I’m fine with every specialist expect Reaper, Purifier, Seraph (when it comes to shooting scorestreaks down, so easy…) and Nomad. These guys need some changes.

    • Xerolh

      The 9th specialist more than likely isn’t finished. It’s s beta for a reason.

      • LovekillerX

        Yeah but I don’t think they will do big changes because beta often means “almost finished”.

        • Siftblade

          They literally just nerfed a specialist, and you’re saying they won’t nerf anything? Wow.

          • w

            Tf it wasn’t a big nerf/change

          • MyKogInYourAshe

            Probably didn’t need a big one?

          • Siftblade

            They just turned a specialist into a tac insertion that can only be used 2-3 times in the game. It’s the worst specialist in the game now.

          • LovekillerX

            BIG changes…

          • Siftblade

            They turned a useful specialist into a tac insert that could only be used 2-3 times a game. I’d say that’s a pretty big change, as now the specialist is completely useless.

          • Xerolh

            People are stupid. They still have plenty of time to fix things.

    • Greasy Neckbeard

      You haven’t even used the fucking purifier nigga it probably is complete shit like the one in [email protected]

      • Ryumoau

        can you type a single comment without sounding like a profane idiot?

        • Greasy Neckbeard

          >trying this hard to spite me

  • Michael

    Too op, pls nerf it Vahn :/

    • Will WilFredo Mendoza

      Stfu. You kids say everything is OP.

      • Michael

        Was being sarcastic, little boy.

  • Josh

    I have uploaded the video here for you guys

  • Cody
  • TheGamingCentral

    I did a video about this and they fucking took it down dude….:(

  • Edwin Cortez

    I have a strong feeling that the ninth specialist is the Character that Marshawn Lynch is playing.

    • OutlawGaming

      Hes a campaign villain

      • Edwin Cortez

        Yeah i know but he hasn’t been shown and there must be a reason why that 9th character hasn’t been seen. He might be playable online.

  • Michael Staunton

    If you go onto Stronghold you can find a collection of weapons that has specialist weapons in there, with the flamethrower in it, PROOF its confirmed
