Published

on

Call of Duty: Ghosts Multiplayer was officially revealed on August 14th, and there was a lot of information shared at the event. We’ve created a new page that has all the info you need to know about Ghosts MP, and we plan on updating that page as more and more information is released.

Here’s the full recap of Call of Duty: Ghosts MP announced information:

Infinity Ward has changed the customization feature and have added brand new Create-A-Soldier, where you customize everything about your character.

CHARACTER CUSTOMIZATION:

Infinity Ward has added new ways to fully customize the soldier you play as in Ghosts. You can play as a male or female soldier and customize every feature of your character.

Choose the head, body type, head-gear and equipment, and you can even create a female soldier for the first time. With over 20,000 possible combinations, you can create the soldier you’ve always wanted. And each soldier you create will also have his or her own load outs.

LOAD OUT:

In Ghosts, you’re allocated a budget for our primary weapon, secondary weapon, your lethal & tactical equipment, and your Perks. All attachments and Killstreaks are free for you to choose.

There’s also ‘Squad Points’ coming in Ghosts MP, which determines what you can unlock when. You chose what attachments, guns, etc. you want to unlock. If you have enough Squad Points you can unlock whichever ones you want at anytime

PERKS:

With Call of Duty: Ghosts, you get to customize what perks you want with you in-game. There’s a total of 35 perks in Ghosts, and each perk has a value between 1 and 5. You get 8 points to use on perks, and you chose which ones you want.

The new Perks system has more perks than ever before. Every perk has a value from 1 to 5, and you have 8 points to allocate. So for example, choose 4 perks each valued at 2 points a piece, or even 8 perks, each valued at 1. You could also choose to get rid of your secondary weapon and get up to 11 perks.

Perks in Call of Duty: Ghosts have been divided into 7 sections:

  • Speed – Examples include Sleight of Hand and Agility allowing players to quickly move through the environment.
  • Handling – Improve the player’s weapon handling abilities with perks such as On The Go (reload while sprinting) and Strong Arm (throw equipment further and decrease grenade cook time).
  • Stealth – Perks such as Takedown (kill enemies without revealing their death location) and Off the Grid allow players to move through the environment undetected.
  • Awareness – Improve a player’s situational awareness and ability to detect enemy equipment.
  • Resistance – Enhance a player’s ability to withstand damage and regenerate health faster.
  • Equipment – Perks that allow players to hold extra equipment, attachments and ammunition.
  • Elite – A new type of player perk that includes Ping (a sonar ping that’s activated upon killing an enemy, revealing nearby hostiles) and Deadeye (consecutive kills increase the chance to deal more bullet damage).

With Call of Duty: Ghosts, Infinity Ward is bringing back MW3’s Strike Packages – Assault, Support, and Specialist. 

  • Assault Strike Package – Strike package based on consecutive enemy kills that resets upon death.
    • New streak rewards include:
      • Sat Com – Utilize satellite communications to relay enemy movements. Drop multiple Sat Coms onthe map for enhanced reads on enemy locations.
      • Guard Dog – Man’s best friend is watching your back. Your Combat dog will warn you when there are nearby enemies and take out ones that got the jump on you.
      • Maniac – Call in advanced juggernaut armor via Care Package; one catch, this knife expert forgoes guns in favor of a high-speedmelee attack.
  • Support Strike Package – Strike package that does not reset on player’s death.
    • New streak rewards include:
      • Night Owl – An advanced companion drone that detects enemies based on proximity and protects you from explosives.
      • MAAWS – Lase targets to guide missilesfrom the free-fire shoulder mounted rocket launcher.
      • Helo Scout – Provide sniper support for your team aboard a controllable helicopter.
  • Specialist Strike Package – Consecutive kills earn players additional Perks.

  • Cranked – similar to TDM with a faster face – when you get a kill you get fast movement  but with a countdown timer. You’ll explode if you don’t finish before the clock.
  • Infected – similar to the mode in MW3
  • Search and Rescue – take on SnD – when you’re killed you drop a dog tag; if your team mates get the tag, they can revive you.
  • Grind
  • Blitz
  • Hunted

  • Communicate via the Rally Up and Clan Chat features, to keep in touch with your friends and Clan members

Free Fall’s close-quarters combat and frenetic action are thrown into overdrive as the ruined skyscraper continues to fall throughout the match, an example of Call of Duty: Ghosts’ new dynamic multiplayer events. With every drop, the accompanying shockwaves cause further destruction, disrupting sight lines and constantly evolving paths and choke points as the map changes in real-time.

Estimated total number of players on PlayStation 4 for each Call of Duty title since 2013

Published

on

Last week, Sony launched the PS4 My Life campaign which allows PlayStation 4 players to see some of their stats. Statistics include overall play-time, top 3 most-played games, rarest trophy, and more.

The rarest trophy statistic provides the exact number of players who earned said trophy. Using this data, Redditor /u/Kalinine has created a report on /r/CallofDuty estimating the total number of players each Call of Duty title since 2013 received on PlayStation 4.

It’s important to note that these are simply rough estimations – Activision has not confirmed these numbers.

Black Ops 4’s numbers will appear significantly low due to releasing only 2 months ago. The influx of players from Christmas also have yet to arrive.

via /u/Kalinine | /r/CallofDuty

In order of highest player count to lowest…

  1. Call of Duty: Black Ops III – 54.7M
  2. Call of Duty: WWII – 25.5M
  3. Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare – 21.3M
  4. Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare – 18.4M
  5. Call of Duty: Ghosts – 13.2M
  6. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered – 10.6M
  7. Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 – 9.8M

Black Ops III’s player count is incredibly high, likely to it being available for free to all PlayStation Plus members from June 12th to July 11th, 2018.

While this is a rough idea of total player counts, there’s still many variables which contribute to its inaccuracy.

  • It’s assumed that the numbers are global, however this cannot be confirmed.
  • It’s not known whether these numbers are players who launched the titles or simply had them installed.
  • According to Redditors, the numbers span only from November 20th to December 4th, 2018.
  • The author of the report did not include Trophies with a percentage lower than 0.5% to reduce inaccuracy.

What are your thoughts on these numbers? While it may seem worrying to see Black Ops 4’s numbers low, it’s important to take into account all of the aforementioned points.
