        I think he is the ultimate queer on this website.

        • ScOott

          Il take it… better than being a nameless commenter that nobody has heard of..

          • TheDemonOfHate

            & who are you??

          • Wtf are you talking about? You’ve been here for a while now @thedemonofhate:disqus, you know who @disqus_C2tLIIb3kr:disqus is. Also saying you have a 0.5 GPA in your bio doesn’t really help your point.

          • TheDemonOfHate

            Dude lol I’m being sarcastic with ScOott. Everything in my bio is a joke. C’mon man don’t take everything on the internet serious.

          • Haha fair play. I never believed your bio lol, too unrealistic. I don’t take the internet seriously 24/7, I just like to mess with people like you with logic and common sense. Many people hate that I do this but I mainly do it for the banter. Besides this is a community, a very awesome one (most of the time) where many people have known each other for years. People do what they want here, its CI. But here’s one thing you should keep in mind, never mess with ScOott. He and Juses will fuck you up so hard you’ll regret having said anything to them. Have a good one man. 😉

          • TheDemonOfHate

            Same here, It just that I troll people & it pisses them off. ScOott knows that I mess around with that tool. But freak Juses that ignorant punk. Looking like pubic hair.

          • ScOott


          • TheDemonOfHate

            Chicken Ass

          • Frank Rizzo

            Is it really?

    • TheDemonOfHate

      Go to GameFaqs & tell them about it. Nerd boi

      • ScOott

        I’m OK DemonOfFagitness, u can if u like..

        • TheDemonOfHate

          I’d rather not look stupid over there. Punk ass boi.
          By the way how much did you get paid advertising that game?

          • ScOott

            No ur doing a good enough Job of that over here..

          • TheDemonOfHate



          • Cookin’ by the book

            You like racks?

          • TheDemonOfHate

            who the freak doesn’t?
            Racks on racks.

          • Cookin’ by the book

            That’s a lot of food.

    • Damn Daniel!!

      DAMN ScOott!! don’t hurt me because I changed it from ItzSikh

      • ScOott

        Erghhf why u do dat..

        • Damn Daniel!!

          people started bringing in religion when they see my name so I was like f**k that shit

      • Siftblade

        And you changed it to Damn Daniel, an unfunny, forced vine “meme” that was only relevant for a week? How is that better?

        • Bengal Tigger

          I was bored, anyway i’m changing now

    • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

      Please don’t be online only… It’s online only… Now I’m salty.

      Gameplay is WIP, but it doesn’t look as smooth as CoD. Is the modding available on consoles? If not, hopefully the content is.

      • ScOott

        Not sure that’s the first I heard of it, I’ve heard a number of games are getting console mods tho, so maybe.. Something to get if Iw flop lol..

        • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

          I hope you heard right, because it’d be fantastic. And if it’s not Ghosts, then I’ll give Infinity Ward’s CoD a chance, especially if it’s World War II, despite their staff differences…

    • ccrows

      Look good Scottie, but is there no CAC though?… (AKA premade classes?)

      • ScOott

        I think it looks like how battlefield do it *Shrugs shoulders*

  • Primey

    Nice one.

  • Who Am I To Judge?

    Is XBox having the same issues regarding the Safeguard robot running across the map? Just curious being on the PS4

    • beamer

      I saw the robot go around in a circle in the middle in redwood for a few minutes.


    lol Charlie intel said “Red tube” (.com)

  • Felipe Rios

    Do we know what time these maps should be accessible?

    • TheDemonOfHate

      Thursday from 12-24

  • Robbie Beutlich

    Funny how I’m am level 492 84 % multiplayer challenges done an I have one special weapon spent 40 dollars on your stupid keys still nothin. Screw his game. An the lag step it up.

    • TheDemonOfHate

      Never trust RNG

    • lunator100hd .

      You could buy a decent game with 40 dollars, why you threw your money in vanderhar’s butthole?

    • ghosts sucks

      I am going thru the same. I’m level 70 and only have 1. The hang gun that only works if your 2 steps away. Atleast AW gave you a gun with the DLC. I hope IW gets away from SD’s but Activision won’t let that happen. It’s to lucrative.

  • joh

    Is it just me or do they keep improving the resolution of things as well on the xbox one? I’ve noticed remarkable better textures after this update.

    • Slothigans

      Holy crap I thought I was the only one lol. It looks a lot more clear before it was a little bit blurry for me.

    • Primey

      Nah they don’t.

    • Callum

      Definitley looks sharper to me too.

  • TfarTn

    Jordan where is your lame video on this? You need to start playing them titties on that mouse and upload.

    • Drasadex


  • Aidan

    Anyone else get the DLC early on xbox one?

  • Robbie Beutlich

    Give us some guns that look good make some servers that don’t lag an screw the micro transactions. An why am I still playing beta maps….Sp holder

  • Eddie Tupy

    theres alot of quality of life features they could add. [mostly PC version]

    in the lobby pressing wasd keys should function the same as dpad on gamepads so we can go through the menus using methods other than mouse. this would affect choosing classes as well.

    speaking of classes the Create A Class menu could be a little more user friendly.

    1. We should be able to rebind the shortcut keys, things like class options [default ‘o’],

    2. this goes for all versions but make choosing wildcards like it was in AW, faster to choose what you want. Why does it go to the wildcard menu when you click on 2nd att attachment when you can only choose the one you were trying to get anyway. its redundant.

    3. Make it so when you are choosing a class to edit you can select it from clicking on its pictures on the right side and go directly into that classes option you clicked on.

    One minor thing that bugs me is that making a custom game with max bots we have to click 17 times, make it so we can click it to wrap around to last selection.

    One more thing thats kind of spoiled brat-ish, make it so we can use EVERYTHING in custom matches. [new weapons].

    theres more things id like to see but for now this is what i can recall.

  • CodToughGuy

    I’ve played the shit out of this map already and the next one is coming out soon…have fun xbox players!

  • RdJokr

    Just some info for clarification, Keshav: on PC, we still have to download the DLC files manually; they don’t come with the patch like on consoles.

  • Ron Reus

    Hey guys, quick question. I’m master prestige lvl 97 and I have not recieved a single dlc weapon from the supply drops. I only buy rare ones. Am I the only one extremely unlucky?

    • Callum

      I’m prestige master 223 and I have only recieved the butterfly knife the week they were released.

      • NotBoardyman

        I’m prestige 8 Lvl 32 and I have the Wrench, brass knuckles, furys song, nx shadowclaw and iron Jim with out spending more than $15 on the game

    • Combat Maneuvers

      I’m master prestige 347 have mostly purchased rare drops, spent $150 and have received absolutely nothing. I’m on Xbox One which also means that I have to put up with camo glitches and broken Dark Matter camo.

    • zack

      Im master prestige 150. Ive spent around $100 on supply drops against my better judgement. I do have the wrench, butterfly knife, brass knucles and furys song. However i did not get any of those from purchased supply drops. Infact i got fury’s song just a few days ago in a common drop. I have not gotten any of the new weapons (shotgun pistol, m1, crossbow) and i think thats pure bs when you consider the time ive played and the money ive spent on drops. Since the game’s release i have wanted a certain taunt for outrider “bring it” and have still not been able to land it.

  • Ak74u

    CI is so late dlc is out now

  • Sanchez

    You nt on mein lvl scubs

  • Combat Maneuvers

    Fuck Treyarch and Vonderhaar they still haven’t fixed camo glitches or broken Dark Matter fox Xbox One.
