Treyarch’s David Vonderhaar, in a Q&A session with EBGames Australia, has confirmed that Gun Game is returning in Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 multiplayer. 

The question specially asked was if its possible to see a One Shot playlist return, and Vahn answered with the following:

“The game does have Gun Game, there is some one shot stuff going on in Gun Game. But as you would expect from a Treyarch Call of Duty Multiplayer title, a complete custom game set with being able to share and save those variant game modes. What we like is the idea that people can take the game, take the game engine, take the game rules, modify them to suit and make them accessible to all your friends. We are going to take the best of those ideas and mess around with them in the “Bonus” category of playlists.

So never say never. One shot game mode specifically isn’t a particular type of mode but Gun Game is our first entry there and we will see what you guys do and go from there.”

    Furst #sweg. Glad to see gun game returning. Its a fun game mode

    • ccrows

      I think we were tied.

      Gonna give it to you though… 🙂

      • tuby

        Yes indeed maybe we could share the swegpoints :p

  • ccrows


  • Prostidude

    Furst! Er mu gurd finialy…

    • ccrows

      A couple of minutes late bruh…

  • ccrows

    Anywhoo, Gun Game (or a completely brand new mode) is what I figured was going to happen all along.

    Like some people were saying infected, and IDK IMO Trey seems to avoid Infected like Kem Strikes/MOABS/ETC… (Although I wish they had a 25 gun streak reward)… :'(

    • Guywithbrains

      Gun game returning is awesome thing in my opinion.

      And exactly. It is a slap to the face when you get 25 killstreak and Treyarch is like “Here take a medal!”

      Infected and actual 25 killstreak would be great.

      • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

        NTY. Infected wouldn’t be bad, though.

        • Guywithbrains

          And if we are more specific then we all are probably talking about Modern Warfare 3 version of Infected.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Treyarch games don’t have Infected, I believe (I’m not too sure), so it’s really a matter of it working on BO3’s levels or not.

          • Guywithbrains

            They actually don’t have. It appeared first in Modern Warfare 3’s post launch and I think back then Black Ops 2 development was already so far already and they couldn’t have known how popular that game mode will become.

            After Black Ops 2 Infected has appeared in all the newest Call of Duty games (Ghosts and Advanced Warfare) and now Treyarch has been aware of Infected’s popularity so fingers crossed.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Well… Why put in Infected when they have Zombies? Or just make a Zombies MP game mode?

        • Classic Infected would be good indeed

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            I don’t think I saw Infected in a Treyarch game. I can’t remember.

      • ccrows

        Personalty, I really haven’t touch infected that much since MW3. (I get upset easily when idiots either stand in doorways or wall breach, and that stuff seems to happen the most in Infected)

        IDK, even though it’s popular, I just don’t see Vahn bringing that “filthy casual” (Vahn pun intended) mode into BO3… 😉

      • LovekillerX

        To be honest medal doesn’t motivate me to get that 25 streak. I would like to see what would be their 25 streak. It shouldn’t be a streak which ends whole match.

        • Danzzy

          Mmm 25 streak is for pussies bro 30 kills is better like KEM strike n DNA 25 is too easy

        • Ak74u

          I think it should be able to unlock a “nuclear camo” or mask and that would be the only way to get it

    • Emanuel Dumitrescu

      when they say new they mean new not returning game modes people. this is treyarch! they wouldn’t say new if it was a returning game mode.

    • ItzSikh

      its treyarch they never implement stuff like nuke’s because they know it just ruins the game i.e. cheesy campers going for nukes

    • No thanks on the 25 kill streak reward. That creates many more campers than the game will already have…..I gotta get my 25 kill streak reward so I am going to use every cheap thing in the game and sit in a dark corner and shoot people that run by until I get it…That is one of the many things that ruined MW2.

    • Ak74u

      Infected is an IW thing and if we had it every year then some might get bored with it (I’d like it) the only reason sledgehammer games had it was because they are new cod developers and they also helped IW with mw3 so they borrowed it from them. Plus they had their own twist

  • Nathan

    Sweet, great game mode. Now we need Infected & MITD Treyarch!

    • ccrows

      MITD? Why?…

  • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

    I knew it would, considering the fact that they’re the first to bring the mode to CoD from Counter-Strike.

  • DeadZombieGaming 12

    Yes! Merk is gonna be happy!


      You’re happy for someone else what a dumb ass.

      • Kobrah

        And your a grumpy old bitch

  • just drank bleach

    Since gun game is back, hope that means the other game modes are back to like one in the chamber and sticks and stones.

  • lunator100hd .

    Im FFA player so i play gungame as an aternative ffa.

  • Juupy

    I wonder if there’s Gun Game against bots, since Ghosts was the only CoD that had option to play gg with bots and they never added that to AW. It was fun to mess around against bots on Ghosts with a friend on split screen.

    • matt murdock

      you could play gg in aw against bots??

      • infinity396

        nope, read again, he said bots in ghosts, never added to AW..Gun Game in AW is pubs only and not available as a private match mode..

        • matt murdock

          no thats what im saying, I have played prvate match infected on AW when my internet was down

  • Lindsay

    Bring Back chaos moshpit.

  • I think that Treyarch picking public game modes from custom modes made by the players is far more interesting that gun game making a (expected) return.

  • Kill Denied

    How about some new game modes instead?

    • Guywithbrains

      Are you aware of the incoming Black Ops 3 Friday live stream that is actually going to show a new game mode?

      • Kill Denied

        I am aware of that, how ever it’s most likely not an original game mode.

  • Dangelo95

    Gun Game is so much fun I’m hoping they implement the specialist weapons into gun game as the last couple you must do and I’m hoping infected comes was missing from BO2 hoping treyarch puts it in such as hi demanding game

  • Interesting way to avoid directly answering a question, but its great to see GG come back..,

  • Danzzy

    Well I would have hoped so ffs

  • As long as we see any of those game modes I will be happy.
    Gun Game (Confirmed)
    One in the Chamber
    Sticks and Stones
    Gun Master (that 45 sec weapon swap game mode.)
    Michael Myers
    Or maybe something completely new?

    • RandomBit

      “Gun Master” – You mean sharpshooter?

    • jordanxbrookes

      Gun Master is in Battlefield 3/4. You’re thinking about Sharpshooter 🙂

  • Slash (SJS)

    This really isn’t all that important. EDIT – I thought this was the Friday thing and I was disappointed. I guess since it isn’t, it’s alright, I guess.

  • LovekillerX
  • JoZer805g

    The knife better be the default melee weapon and is a one hit kill. I want to make people rage just by demoting them so many times and I hope Gun Game has force game chat. dam parties on PS4 ruins the experience of someone raging, lol.

  • I hope one shot’s returning, it was by far the most fun and casual mode in AW.

  • Klaas-Jan Huntelaar

    If people really want a 25 killstreak put it on infected because then in regular modes lil bitches and youtubers would be spamming the shit out of support streaks.

  • Dallas Phillips

    Hm Cool Man i had a feeling Gun Game would return, its in every black ops game afterall. and they still have not revealed that final killstreak located next to the mothership, you guys know the one 😉 wonder what is better than the mother

  • GinsuVictim

    I love One in the Chamber. Please bring it back.

  • Mr_ysi42t96

    I get motivated from medals idk why, it feels like an accomplishment plus no need for 25 killstreak, I think the killstreaks are strong enough and they will recycle pretty quickly if you use them correctly, which makes you grim reaper

  • brady

    zombie gun game now that would be fun. its already been done in mods

  • Kthrog91

    Me and many would really like sticks and stones to come back so can stop playin 360 more than our new systems
