Call of Duty’s rise to popularity came with a mixture of iconic gameplay and remarkable characters.
Many of Call of Duty’s finest characters left lasting impressions on us as players. Captain Price taught us to check our corners and Gaz instructed us with the key tip of “switching to your sidearm is always faster than reloading.”
We went on to fight alongside them in missions and took the lessons they taught us to the grimy battlefields of Multiplayer.
Alternatively, in the case of the other memorable characters listed here, they were our greatest enemies. They committed acts of violence and lunacy that shook us to the very bone, teaching us what evil and hatred look like when manifested into man.
Now, it would only be fitting to honor these comrades and enemies with something worthy of their personalities, histories, and combat prowess.
These are characters we would love to see receive a reintroduction as Blackout skins for Black Ops 4.
Captain Price appeared in all three Modern Warfare games and served as the main supporting role alongside our player characters. A to-the-point military man with a bit of humor to spice things up, Price was there from beginning to bitter end.
A ruthless military mastermind who hatched a plan to begin World War III in order to cement himself as the greatest military general in history. This led to Russia’s attack on US soil and the death of Ghost as well as many others. He served as the secret main antagonist of Modern Warfare 2.
John “Soap” MacTavish
A playable character in Modern Warfare 1, Soap was recruited into the SAS and served under Price. His actions helped save the world from the evils of Makarov and he died in service to this cause.
The mastermind behind most of the events of the Modern Warfare games, Makarov is a killer and fiend. His primary goal was to see Russia restored to its standing as the Soviet Union. He believed the current Russian government had grown weak and needed to be replaced by his own kind. Makarov was hung by Captain Price at the end of Modern Warfare 3.
Simon “Ghost” Riley
Simon “Ghost” Riley played much the same role as Gaz. He is a supporting squadmate with clever lines and the tactical smarts to win out in any firefight. His iconic skull mask already inspired a new CoD universe in “Ghosts” and would be a welcome addition to the ranks of Blackout.

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.
