Call of Duty player gets first place in Blackout without using a gun.
Since the Blackout mode launched with Call of Duty Black Ops 4 in October, players have been finding creative ways to score the coveted #1 spot. One player has challenged themselves to go through an entire match killing enemies exclusively with the Bowie Knife.
On November 23, user “Apotheosis_13” uploaded a jaw-dropping 22 minute long video to their channel. In it, the player can be seen going on an absolute rampage scoring eight Bowie Knife kills, as well as the victory.
The video shows Apotheosis_13 dropping on Asylum and start a seemingly ordinary game. After looting a couple guns and perks, he finally finds a Bowie Knife where his slaughter begins. Lunging forward in the blink of eye, the Bowie Knife kills enemies with one hit.
While the player does in fact receive assistance from equipment and perks, all kills are done solely with the Knife. They even pull off some tricky tactics with the final kill, grappling outside the circle in one swipe their final prey.
The Bowie Knife, a Zombies mode classic, has been added to the Blackout arsenal on November 13 for PS4 players, and November 20 for Xbox One and PC players. While most may skip over the tactical blade when given the opportunity, this video proves that when placed in the right hands, the Bowie Knife is not to be ignored.

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.
