During the second BO3Friday live stream, Treyarch has revealed an all new game mode for Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 called Free Run.

This new mode is for fans to try out the new movement system with level based challenging courses and compete against your friends. Players have to use thrust jumps, slides, and more to maneuver through the courses. The feature also has weapon challenges; every time you miss a shot, you get a 1 second penalty.

Free Run features multiple maps/courses that will vary in the environment and difficulty of them.

Activision and Treyarch have not confirmed yet if this mode will be available on Xbox 360 or PS3. We’ll update once we get more information.

    That sounds cool… but guess what would be cool too? INFECTED!

    • Gust Fook Fagits

      etz FURST u fagit

    • *Furst

  • ScOott

    Sounds shit! I have a feeling all these Friday are going to be the same ..

    • Jenish Katuwal

      To be fair, imagine if people could soon go head on vs each other and people can have their own tools to design parkour maps.. like the content creator on gta v

      • Siftblade

        If that happens, it would greatly improve the mode. It could then turn into a race instead of just a time comparison between friends.

    • Choppabro2psn

      Last weeks was great. This weeks was okay. Honestly, they are being nice. They could just say “fuck everyone, no news until the games releases”, right?

    • curi0us

      Practice makes perfect. Hope you enjoy falling to your death a lot.

      • ScOott

        Lol I won’t I played the beta.. I can wall run.. Hope u enjoy not playing multiplayer and wasting time in combat training, because that exactly what it is.. This is not a new game mode as they said it’s just a moddified combat training..

        • curi0us

          The game doesn’t always have to evolve killing or shooting other players.

          Spoiled brat.

          • ScOott

            Ur a fucking moron, CoD doesn’t have to be about shooting people LOL!
            Thick brat ..

    • Ak74u

      F*ck you why are you always complaining you sound like a hater

      • ScOott

        Lmao, don’t be butt hurt, because someone said something bad about your precious bo3 .. I love bo3 but this “new game mode” is shit and not what I was expecting .. Can’t handle opinions get the fuck off the Internet..

  • drjakeyoung

    So what was the big announcement that mark was on about? He said it was alongside this game mode.

    • LovekillerX

      Probably that reward system. *sigh*

      • drjakeyoung

        Was that it? I was hyped for something bigger.

        • LovekillerX

          Same here because the boss was there…

  • Michael Romo

    That sounds kinda wack. Like they took the target practice from MW and made it competitive

    • drjakeyoung


    • Well to me it looks fun, if they would add more tracks in the future could be something good

      • One Russian’s Revenge

        “And then to awesome music in your library for everyone to hear, can you imagine, maybe being able to create your own track, since you know custom games and this is a game mode.”

    • BooBee

      I agree, it’s trash!

    • Underdog BO1 FTW!

      it’s party games. Just like deathrun

    • Slothigans

      Here’s a wild suggestion. Don’t play it. I think it sounds fun especially with friends.

      • Choppabro2psn

        Right? Shit. Atleast he should admire the scenery. The more content the better if you ask me.

        • Slothigans

          Exactly it’s like shit man you’re Getting extra stuff and you’re complaining? That just means he’s a guy that’ll never be truly happy and content with what he gets.

          • Argy

            While I don’t disagree that we shouldn’t complain for added features, from another perspective it could be argued that this wasn’t time well spent… like this could be in lieu of a map or an actual multiplayer game mode or more guns/perks/whatever… which a lot more people might find better.

            Guess I’m saying its not an argument of if its good or not, but if its worthwhile to spend the time making it. Treyarch’s done this in the past, and its hurt them and helped them… I mean this is basically how Zombies got started… its also how the last campaign went down.

        • ccrows

          You’re still fragmenting the population.

          You can still “admire” the scenery in either combat training, or a private match…

          • Michael Staunton

            And you think it’s fragmenting the MP population? Thousands maybe even a million people might play at launch, a few people going to try that out will make little to no difference dude, so calm down, enjoy it, have you ever played a pc game called CSGO, if you have you would know what surfing is, a casual sub mode to calm the nerves from competitive play and just play for chill. One last thing, I am not trying to start an internet war.

          • Choppabro2psn

            I meant the scenery of the free run mode specifically.

          • Choppabro2psn

            Admit it, a MP map that looks like that would be amazing. That is, if there isn’t one already. That’s what I am, trying to say. If you get extra food on a plate, surely you would not complain, yes?

    • Koolz

      So you consider the other party games competitive?

    • HomePolecat96

      I wanna see them do more with this actually, the movement in this game could make for an amazing platformer.

  • Danzzy

    Oh dear what a waste of 3 years. Yeah it might be kind of fun but for how long tut tut fuck tht. Still love you though treyarch

    • Connor

      This totally took 3 years to make…*sigh*

    • DeadZombieGaming 12

      This totally took 3 years to make a free run…

  • Mr_ysi42t96

    Can’t say I’m not disappointed about the game mode, but hey it’s still black ops

  • Ok then…

  • QuickzZ-_-GhosT

    This was so lame.

  • Danzzy

    Wait…. no way! Is this actually like a game mode in playlist?! Or a training thingy? If it’s suppose to be a proper game mode then it’s fucking shit I mean it’s call of duty ffs I bet this was Tmartn’s Idea because he thinks he can free run :’)

  • Mikey9835

    This mode dosen’t look finished, like its a developer tool or something

  • J4MES

    Meh, I’ll give this a miss and stick to the proper aspects of the game..

  • Stefan Lang

    Lol i expected something else but I aint complaining. This is something new and cool.

  • Here Is Gameplay for those who missed the stream (1080p60FPS) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J2z03AQRwxE&feature=youtu.be&a

  • lunator100hd .

    i like it , i will give it a try.

  • jordanxbrookes

    Seems fun to play and compete against your friends with. Definitely gonna give this mode a go 🙂

  • Siftblade

    Looks fun. I can see me and my friends messing around in here lol

  • Viral Echo

    Am I the only one who thinks this looks awesome?

    • se7enX89X

      You most likely are because this game mode looks stupid as hell…

      • Ak74u

        100 bucks or Sweg points you will play it when the game comes out

        • Mr_ysi42t96

          Step right up ladies and gentlemen, place your bets, do I hear 110 sweets points?

        • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

          Looks heavily influenced by the Titanfall simulation.

      • Zenfluence

        Lol…well seeing I’ve disliked COD for a while, played the Beta and loved it…it’s a safe assumption that calling it “stupid as hell” from watching videos has less relevance vs actual experience.

        Or are you one of those people that play mainly competitive games for the story?

      • Mike

        I think it looks dope

    • kumedmyesaus

      I agree with you

    • Adam Nord

      this is just like the pit from mw2 which everyone attempted to beat the world record. I can’t wait to play this

  • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

    This looks like a fun mode to mess around on and practice the movement.

  • curi0us

    Why all the negativity? This is *very* good for practice and for people trying to sharpen their skills.

    Spoiled shits who aren’t even grateful for a way to practice without looking like dumbshits in pub or ranked.

    I guess falling to your death multiple times when trying to wallrun is in your future.

    • ccrows

      Because when you add in a new playlist, it fragments the population.

      When any playlist is low, it reflects poorly on the game, which is why we’ve seen playlists retired before.

      Why do you need to “sharpen” your skills when “Combat Training” worked well with the prev 2 BO games?

      Bottom Line – No matter how you slice it, this is a gimmick, and I guarantee you that it will have low numbers (liked Heavy Duty, or Cranked) come January… (if not earlier)

      • curi0us

        I see it mostly as a means of bettering yourself, nothing more.

        And combat training was for combat training. This is movement training that appeals to the idea of bettering your movement skills in a variety of situations without swapping levels, or getting shot at.

        I wouldn’t call anything a gimmick if it means I am improving myself as a player.

        • ccrows

          BO3 is primarily a “boots on ground” game. What skill do you need to improve?

          Press A (or X) three times to triple jump. Jump by a wall and press towards the direction of the wall, and *poof* you’re wall running.

          ^ You don’t need to play TF to get that down in less than a match. If if it takes you longer, then play in a PM with bots until you do.

          AW had a steeper learning curve, and didn’t need a gimmick like this to learn. (and this is coming from a Treyarch fan)

          Bottom Line – Fragmenting the population for a gimmick is never a good thing…

          • curi0us

            I need to improve everything since I’m shit at the movement mechanics. I figured there would be a training mode in the beta, but no, you’re basically given a gun and told to go kill shit or protect the thing, or shoot the thing, or blow up the thing.

            I still think it’s a decent mode.


          • ccrows

            OK and it was a beta for a reason. If you played the beta, you are already ahead of the learning curve.

            What do you need from this playlist that you can’t achieve in a PM with bots? Please explain…

          • curi0us

            I couldn’t play beta because of the lag. I played four matches before the 400+ ping spikes basically said, “You’re not playing this.”

            To answer your question, I won’t get shot at nor do I have to swap levels.

            Plus it looks fun. That’s the best and only answer you’re getting from me.

          • ccrows

            OK I gotta agree to disagree.

            The only thing that’s really different from this COD from the rest is the triple boost, and wall running.

            I can understad the wall running, but that can be easily learned in a PM. Still, it’s a “boots on ground” shooter. You can play an entire match in BO3 without wall running once, and you will do well. (the wall running is strictly optional)

            Like I said earlier, any new playlist will fragment the population, and this community will overreact to any low pop number, and start to bash the game. (I’ve been with COD since COD2 and seen this BS first hand). You can also say that maybe I’m overreacting, but there’s a reason why devs will retire a playlist fast because of the communities perception.

            *Sigh* in the end, as I said in the beginning. I get where you are coming from, but when you can do the optional basics, (key word optional) I gotta agree to disagree, but I do respect what you’re saying… 🙂

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Betas aren’t demos. Someone tell that to EA.

      • RdJokr

        Dude. It’s a SOLO playlist. It’s not gonna fragment the population that bad. You seriously cannot think that this one training playlist is gonna take a significant amount of players away from other game modes.

        And let’s not forget that almost everyone bitched about Exo movements in the last game. This is Treyarch’s way of easing the movements into the players, giving them a chance to master them for usage in multiplayer matches.

        • Ryan Collewijn

          i agree did advanced warfare gave you any training no… they gave us a multiplayer simulation with bots this is treyarch’s step up so you can enjoy the movements and not die a million times…

        • ccrows

          All I’m gonna say is that wall running is the only “optional” thing players may take a game to get used to. (and that takes a game to get down)

          Here, this is what I would do:

          When BO3 loads up, it gives you the option for a quick training simulator just like TF did. You don’t want it, OK fine you can skip it.

          Also you could have all the playlist you want for Exos, there’s plenty of COD fans that will still HATE Exos. There is NOTHING that can do to change their mind against “boots on ground”, hence the reason for “Fav for no Exos”…

          • RdJokr

            Wall running is optional, yes, but those who can master wall running have a better advantage at playing the game, just as mastering Exo movements in AW would give you an advantage over those who are too stubborn to try anything other than “boots on the ground”.

            That’s one of the reasons this mode exists: for those who are still unfamiliar with the movements, or want to be able to master it to the point where you can make sick parkour tricks, you can train on these solo tracks. Another is, as Bunting stated in the stream, something for you to kill time while you wait for your buddies to go online. It’s not going to “fragment” the population in any way.

        • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

          I just want offline progression like Black Ops with prestiging and the whole nine. This is nice, though, even if it’s reminiscent of Titanfall.

      • Eddie Tupy

        didnt they say this was solo?

        • ccrows

          IDK, we’ll see how it plays out come launch.

          *sigh* I’m just tired of gimmick playlists in COD (remember MITD, Team Defender, Cranked, Heavy Duty, to ETC) where they fail and then trolls come in and start with the “game is already dying BS”…

      • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

        I just want offline progression like the first Black Ops with prestiging and all content unlockable. Not because I’m bad, but because it’s a fun, small option, and it would be a good idea if we are stressed at the game if we DO perform poorly.

      • ben wills

        You’re a moron. Like, special levels of stupid.


        You just complained about more content. Go play Battlefront and enjoy your one map you dumb sack of shit.

  • Alter Ego Studios

    Read the above description, as stated, its purpose is to familiarize players with the new movement, as it is different from AW.

  • One Russian’s Revenge

    “I bet there is hate, but all I see is creativity, hoping they’ll put it for access to custom games people can make their own track with traps and whatnot and make awesome deathruns.”

  • Brian

    Very lame

  • Dallas Phillips

    Meh.. wasn’t very excited when they revealed this mode. i guess i play it from time to time when the final game releases but. 🙁 i kinda expected a regular game mode which would tie in with a new map i guess i was double wrong

  • This is literally straight outta Warframes parkour courses lul

  • Kurama The Nine-Tailed Fox

    If your disappointed in this great movement tutorial I’m guessing your going to suck balls at Black Ops 3. Parkour makes a good difference in skill gap, can’t wait to master this stuff with friends.

  • Ak74u

    -|||||||||Please read just an idea.||||||||| What if they add in an uplink ball and you work with a friend or teammate passing it around in the running course and who ever scores it first wins? Or maybe who ever scores two times. like face off from MW3 1v1 or 2v2 only that would make it more fun and competitive.|

  • Johnny

    I wish there was a game mode called one man army where 1 player has to survive while 17 other players try to kill the guy. Similar to infected i guess but everyone should have a gun.

    • DeadZombieGaming 12

      Basically TDM, but 1 v 17…

      • Johnny

        Theres so many modes that people can make like hide and seek. Or maybe trouble in terrorist town bo3 style. Free run is boring.

  • Mr_ysi42t96

    I was hyped that the new game mode would be kinda competitive and fun to play just like safeguard and hard point

  • Anonymous Gamer

    This game mode looks like so much fun, the game mode is different and fast paced pace. Not to mention the graphics looked beautiful as well

  • Capten ermirica

    I’m sorry but fuck off. Where’s headquarters?If I wanted to play temple run I’d get my phone out.

    • Jenish Katuwal

      There are a few more unannounced modes for bo3 in the core playlist; considering Demolition is back i’m pretty sure that headquarters will be too considering me and many many many other players loved that game mode to death.

  • DeadZombieGaming 12

    It looks good for practicing the movement system and a good timekiller

  • Cool concept. Itll probably be fun for the first month. Doubt it will be in too many future titles

  • Razorback

    This is probably for you to train jumping with your jet pack.

  • This looks like a ton of fun actually, great way to take a break from the typical MP atmosphere.

  • Your Mom Says:

    Go back to study, son!

  • Suck My Cock Nigga

    yo, you fucking took my comments out yo dont u ever fuck with me

  • Suck My Cock Nigga

    Otherwise youd have to suck my cock nigga

  • Fuck you nigga

    yo.. Dont do that, it is very bad, i dont feel good after doing the thing we did before…

  • Suck My Cock Nigga

    shut the fuck up or you will do it again nigga fucka

  • Fuck you nigga


  • Suck My Cock Nigga

    better be like that yo

  • SpencerFeels-ACTF

    i watched the live stream though, it was very nice and at the end, the guy that was interviewing them told us that maybe they would talk about zombies next BO3Friday… Im pumped, it better be zombies hahahahahaha the new freerun mode looked nice for me, what do you guys think? Answer to this coment, I wanna hear you all lol peace!

  • Don_Jon

    can you split screen up to 4 players with this game mode?

  • More content is better than less. Even if it ends up being rubbish it’s still more to play for your money. I can imagine it’d be a lot of fun to play with friends

  • Clamp

    This is another example of taking someone ideas into own game. When i read about it, i though about Mirrors Edge first. Im starting to thik, that this part of CoD:BO is just mix of view games. Another feeling i have when it comes to Sniper Ghost Warrior 3. Its still that same game after heavy rebuild and added new features. I think it will be better than three last CoD together.

  • GinsuVictim

    Just confirming this mode IS in the last gen versions.

  • Raines

    Ah, yet another ploy to try to get us to use their garbage movement system. No thanks, I’ll stick to good old boots on the ground and pick off the jetpack, wallrunning spammers

  • F*** Jetpacks

    They are really trying to cram these thruster packs down peoples’ throats aren’t they? No thanks. They ruined CoD
