A poorly timed moment reveals this game-altering bug in Search and Destroy.
Search and Destroy has been one of the most competitive game modes offered in Call of Duty history. Two teams, one bomb, and no respawns.

While winning a match normally requires a good amount of skill, Twitter user ‘AceThugV37‘ discovered that luck – and a bug – may also help to take home a gold medal.
In a clip posted by AceThugV37, his team is seen having the bomb planted with the defending team left to defuse it. With the attackers down, all the remaining defender needs to do is defuse the bomb in time to win.
Yet when the opposing team goes to defuse the bomb, it is clearly seen exploding while the defender has a chunk of meter left to fill up. However, the game determines the poorly timed defenders as the winner. The full clip can be seen below:

Since the bomb’s explosion didn’t kill the defender or stop the defusing process, it may have just been a visual glitch. Although the killfeed also displays the bomb being detonated right before the bomb gets defused.
It is not known what causes this glitch or how to prevent it at this time. With the next Call of Duty esport event taking place on 16 January, it is unknown if Treyarch plans address, or fix, this issue before then.
COD 2020 Teasers: Black Ops 4 Summit map, Treyarch social profile
As we opened our new crates that Activision sent through, Black Ops 4’s Summit map got an update.
The screens in the center of the map in Black Ops 4 turned on which seem to match to what some of our slides show:
There’s also a look at clocks of 4 out of the 5 locations that some of us got as part of the slides to see:
These changes do appear to be new, especially the screens with the targets on them. Analyzing older images of the maps showcase that the screens were not showing the same thing.
In addition, Treyarch has updated their cover photo on social channels.
It’s getting cold out there…
Gameplay from Black Ops 4’s canceled campaign mode revealed
A user on Reddit, r/BlackOps4, has shared what appears to be the very first footage of gameplay from the canceled campaign mode of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, which released in October 2018, was the first Call of Duty game to not have a traditional campaign mode, instead opting to have three online-based modes.
Treyarch insisted throughout the year that they really didn’t have plans for a campaign and were focusing on an online connected experience for Black Ops 4, but many reports and sources described the campaign as being too ambitious and canceled because of issues with development.
On Reddit, a user has shared about two minutes of alpha footage of the gameplay of Black Ops 4’s campaign. The campaign, in alpha-state footage (meaning its not complete), had a very similar HUD to the MP experience of Black Ops 4. The user claims that the campaign and MP were supposed to be connected, and that’s why the HUD is so similar.
The gameplay starts by showing a message of “FIND THE AQUILUS CEO.”
Here’s the gameplay footage:
The user who posted this has not said where they got this gameplay footage as of now. He said he only has this footage, alongside an augmented footage of the engine of BO4, which he is not releasing at this time.
