  • Not Secund


  • Buruck Obuma

    I hope there are custom mods

    • Brian

      Never going to happen

  • Mark

    My 2TB is ready

  • Romhaja

    As long as it will be a good game and wont crash every 5 minutes like AW, im fine with that.

  • its just a prank bro

  • Dr. Salim

    Hey, will this run on my Virtual Boy?

  • DeadZombieGaming 12


  • TheGamerBeast

    yeah R.I.P my internet hopefully there’s a pre-load atleast 4 or 5 days before release day like AW so i can take my time

    • RdJokr

      If worse comes to worst, you could always just let your PC run overnight and preload the whole thing.

      The worst part of this is when you unlock the preload files though. 60GB could take up nearly an hour. It did for me when I tried to unlock Final Fantasy XIII before.

  • My computer can easily handle this game maxed out but I still decide to get it on PS4 for the simple reason that Cod on PC has horrible support and lobbies tend to die out quicker than console.

    • Ray

      Same here unfortunatley

    • Guywithbrains

      And despite the fact that it WAS PC game it has been a console game since Modern Warfare 2.

      When it comes to my personal opinion… I prefer to play first person shooters on console.

      • I agree completely. FPS games are better with a controller (IMO). I do like playing Dirty Bomb, Counter Strike, TF2 and Combat Arms with a keyboard and mouse though.

        Call of Duty just doesn’t feel good with a Keyboard/Mouse.

        • Cenobyte666

          Sorry but in my opinion, playing an FPS with a controller is like playing with oven mitts. I understand that console is the way to go with COD, but I always buy it on PC because I’m way better with a mouse and the video quality is a lot better. If this game is like BO2 on PC, it will last long enough so we can all enjoy it for a while.

          Nothing against consoles, but I freaking hate controllers for this type of game.

          • Noretrollor

            I agree but there is up and downs. For PC it’s easier to aim since since you can move around quicker and turn around quicker. But not good because some people don’t feel comfortable playing like that or not used to it. On controller it feels more comfortable in your hands. But you can’t manouver that fast which is why there is aim assist.

            Not that they’re bad but I prefer console since it’s more natural and better customer support. Both good on playing though as the PC has better quality and less lag. But on console is almost the same but not as good quality and sometimes lag. But as a new game everything should be fine for now.

      • ToonToons22

        To me, it just feels like you’re clicking on enemies to kill them when you’re playing on PC. I prefer playing FPS on consoles because the controller just feels more natural in your hands. The triggers on Xbox and PS4 make the feeling of shooting more realistic. That’s just my opinion, though.

        • urmgurd

          Wow. You didn’t even know you can use a Ps4 or Xbox1 controller on PC. Lmfao??

          • Controllers suck on COD PC in case you never tried it. Sensitivity is a joke and it just feels awkward. Console is much better for controllers.

          • It’s not that bad on BO3 though. I tried my scuf on PC for a little bit during the beta and it worked very well.

          • Jessica Because

            That’s because they added aim assist for controllers. He’s definitely referencing previous CoDs.

          • I understand that, I was just saying how BO3 improved.

          • Jessica Because

            Apologies. I may have misread your comment.

          • It’s fine, don’t worry about it. 😉

          • ToonToons22

            I already knew that, and I’m pretty sure most other people did too. But what happens when you have no PS4 or Xbox One controller?

          • The Slash

            We dont have Aim-assist on PC, which makes the skill differencial a bit higher than what it is on console. Aim-assist also makes you be at a pretty big disadvantage (assuming most of you are talking/playing online PvP games) comparred to someone that uses Keyboard + Mice. Using a controller on a PC inst really an option.

        • Jessica Because

          On the other hand, it feels like a carnival game trying aim at anything with tiny sticks. It’s a conundrum really.

      • Windy
        • RdJokr

          “We always wanted to be on consoles and Activision saw us as more of a PC developer.”

          Wow. Hearing this from the guys that used to run IW… That is just hurtful. I guess this pretty much explains why IW’s games on PC are so shitty, even after West and Zampella + half of the original IW staff left.

    • Antal120

      That’s also because the PC community has more FPS games than console players. Fortunately, Treyarch isn’t Infinity Ward.

    • MyKogInYourAshe

      “Cod on PC has horrible support” not true for Treyarch games

      • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

        Still will most likely be DOA.

        • Daisy Doggin

          ? what does this mean

          • Kobrah

            Dead on arrival

          • Logic Chief

            no guys DOA mean dead ops arcade. wow what noobs.

          • Kobrah

            Shouldn’t he have said ‘be like’ then?

          • Some One

            wow what noobs? The DOA mode was only in BLOPS 1. “Still will most likely be dead ops arcade” makes absolutely no sense. He obviously meant “dead on arrival,” meaning the game will die out immediately. For a name like “Logic Chief” you sure don’t think very logically.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Dead on Arrival.

    • jordanxbrookes

      Same for me exact I’m getting it for Xbox One.

      • I’d get it on xb1 but mine broke unfortunately and no warranty 🙁

        • jordanxbrookes

          Mine broke too, but I bought another one since it was a good deal.

          • Humza Qureshi

            Why don’t you do daily uploads/upload more often? You have the professionalism, maybe just add some more humor but don’t fake it.

          • I agree with you, it would be cool if Jordan did that.

      • OpTic Morgan

        I’m getting it for the PS4.

        • jordanxbrookes

          Nice one 🙂

    • AwesomeAggron

      played the bo3 beta, no lag on servers was pretty much good. but it’s your choice

    • Kit Carson

      thanks to people like you

    • Brian

      …All of the CoDs on PC get the same patches as consoles get on the same day mostly so I don’t know what you’re on about with “horrible support”

    • Frag Wall

      But with 65 FoV?!

    • I’m going to get it on all three because I have a strong PC, PS4 and Xbox One……not really, those things are true but I am barely getting one copy because this might be my last go round with COD.

    • Brandon Johnson

      Still playing Black Ops 2 on PC. Servers are great, community is fantastic, game runs perfectly, and there are upwards of 10k people playing just the multiplayer at a time, which isn’t as much as consoles but if you can’t find games with 10k people online you’re doing something wrong.

    • Micah Johnson

      Lol it will be great with the mod tools coming next year

  • Oh lawd Internet prepare yourself

  • nuzul

    people who play on the pc shoud play with console as it a waste of space

    • FazalGaming

      Not really considering on a PC you can get maybe like a 4tb harddrive which can hold this same game 70 times, plus they can transfer to external hard drives.

  • LovekillerX

    60GB… rest in piece slow internets.

    • Haha yeah, I’m glad I have high speed internet!

    • Micah Johnson

      Mine is estimating 2 days for the download

    • jesse mattila

      that would take about 5-7 hours for me

  • Guywithbrains

    Can people see from these specs if this is a good optimization or not?

    • RdJokr

      Specs only tell you half the story. They could give you a fairly cheap specs as minspecs, but if the game is unoptimized, it will run like shit even on recommended specs. On the other hand, they could give you a high ass specs as minspecs, but then it turns out the game is so well optimized, it runs well even on low end hardware.

      With Treyarch though? I’d go with the latter. But then again, this minspecs is pretty moderate. Not too demanding, not too low either.

      • Guywithbrains

        But what I have heard Treyarch’s games work well on PC. So fingers crossed for you PC players.

        • RdJokr

          I know. I played the beta, and it was so smooth for me (even though it wasn’t even fully optimized). So I have faith in Treyarch.

  • James

    Do you guys know if we can pre-download black ops 3 on ps4 already?

    • shantzonpoint

      It’s not available for download yet on the PS4

    • Kobrah

      A day or two before I believe

  • RdJokr

    The difference in file size between consoles is amazing. I mean, there’s a whopping 15GB difference between Xbox and PC!

    • Kobrah

      Higher resolution textures?

      • RdJokr

        Who knows. I mean, AW looked pretty similar on PS4 and X1 (other than resolution difference), but when it comes to patch and DLC size, PS4’s file size still beats X1. So it could be compression method or something like that.

        • Kobrah

          Yeah, that probably has something to do with it too. I’m no expert though

    • TheGamerBeast

      it was expected beacuse 4K and more textures

      • Brian

        Adding 4K support doesn’t make it larger in size.

        • TheGamerBeast

          it adds more textures to the game which is bigger size

          • Brian

            They said nothing about the textures being at 4K. All they said was 4K support.

            4K support doesn’t mean 4K textures.

  • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

    Only 5 GB more. Textures are probably that much better (pretty big difference).

  • J4MES

    The specs are quite minimal aside from the disk space. Didn’t have any issues on the beta so I’m expecting a solid launch.

    • jooker-jr

      Heard that mouse support ( as always ) was terrible.

      • Kobrah

        Pcdev reckons he fixed the problems with mouse input

  • Digital_Veil_

    Man… Game sizes are getting out of control. I really can only keep a small handful of games on my SSD at a time these days.

    • MichiganerE

      Time to upgrade to 5-10 TB external hard drives.

      • Vicsupreme

        Stfu kid. An SSD is a huge upgrade from your 5 TB external hard drive.

        • MichiganerE

          Why are you mad?

          • Vicsupreme

            because I hate retarded comments like yours

          • But external hard drives are more cost effective.

          • chris

            Might be more cost effective but lacks the read/write speed..

          • Not if you get a good one. Those things can be faster than Xbox One and PS4 hard drives.

          • MichiganerE

            Damn, you’re really salty. Would you like some candy?

          • The salt levels have risen…

  • GoodFellas

    Is it possible that Black Ops 3(Steam Version) will cost 40 bucks on black friday?

    • David Carcedo

      it’s 30 bucks

    • J4MES

      Nope. The game has a fixed full price worldwide. Steam will likely have a sale on for Black Friday but titles like that wont be in it.

    • FazalGaming

      You can buy the Steam CD KEY of Black Ops 3 here:

      If you put G2A pay which is like $0.70 you will get 100% working, or your money back.
      This isn’t an advertisement, I’m just letting you know you can it there for like $25 and it isn’t fake.

  • BOB

    lol BF4 with all DLC is half that big… nice optimization

    • Cookin’ by the book

      Are you sure BF4 on PC with all DLC is half the size of BO3?
      edit: forgot the image

    • Brian

      BF4 with all the dlc and patches is 62GB on PC

  • Choppabro2psn

    Off topic, but question for the people here: what gun did the kinda remind you of in the beta?

    • ToonToons22

      The what?

    • Kobrah


      Edit: oh! Kuda? It reminds my of the UMP45

    • Buruck Obuma


    • UMP45 and the MP5 mixed with a whole lot of polymer.

  • Noretrollor

    Do any of you know how will this run on my PS2? It says last gen so it’s available for PS2 right?

    • ToonToons22

      Last-gen is PS3 and Xbox 360. Sorry, but it won’t work on PS2.

      • GinsuVictim

        I can’t believe you gave a serious answer.

        • ToonToons22

          Trust me, I can get pretty un-serious when I need to.

      • How about the PS1?

        • ToonToons22

          I don’t know, but I’m still trying to find a copy for my Atari. With campaign and season pass.

          • I think the season pass isn’t available for Atari

    • Im still trying to find a pre order available for my N64. Anyone got some answers that can help me out?

      • Noretrollor

        I got the same question, I just hope it comes for the N64 and PS1.

        • Same. Im surprised they haven’t announced anything yet for those consoles considering how close we are to release

          • Duce

            Blops 3 has been confirmed for snes so we can only hope n64 and ps1 are to follow. Also heard there’s a workaround to get BO3 to work on your pong machines!!

          • shadowguy14

            You guys are assholes 😛

          • Bullcrap, why isn’t it on the bell on my neck? Its capable.

    • Kobrah

      The beta ran fine on my PS1 so PS2 should be no problem

      • FazalGaming

        Peasants, Ouya master race.

        If you don’t know what Ouya is, it was a console that came out a few years ago and failed miserably.

        • Kobrah

          Do you know what ever happened to that steam console that everyone was talking about for a while?

          • FazalGaming

            I have no idea xD

      • Noretrollor

        Thanks man but I was thinking if Black Ops 3 would run on my Nintendo 64.

      • Really? I had huge fps drops on PC, can’t believe the beta was optimized better for PS1

        • Kobrah

          Yep. The IOS mobile version was a bit buggy on my iPhone 4 though

          • Do you think it would work on my iPhone 6?

          • Kobrah

            The Lightning charger and improved iSight camera on the iPhone 6 should definately provide a better experience

          • Seems legit…

      • hyerrakalva

        How is the Gameboy version doing?

        • Kobrah

          I don’t have a Gameboy, but it works fine on my DS lite

    • Juses

  • Eddie Tupy

    good, i have 6950 so i might be able to play this for a bit on low before i get my 980ti

    I wish people would stop justifying there purchases for once…

    Im getting PC version cuz its plain old better than on console!

    • GinsuVictim

      It’s just too bad PC support is so terrible. They hate you guys.

      • Alexander

        PC support is excellent on Treyarch games. Only Advanced Warfare has disappointed in terms of Support but that was a terrible game so it didn’t matter. The PC beta of BO3 was astonishing especially at 120fps maxed out.

      • Eddie Tupy

        i beg to differ this time around, i guess we’ll see soon enough.

        Only real downside to cod on pc is that people would rather play on console or they play csgo or BF or mobas or, dare i say it, minecraft.

  • Woah, 55 GB on PS4 to 17 GB on PS3?

    At that point they cut out gun models and animations and attachments are completely removed, along with maps consisting of 3 polygons with 0 textures.

    • The Flash

      dont forget there is no campaign either

  • Fuck-Off

    I think that guy with early copy doesnt have it anymore lol…..
