Information regarding upcoming ‘Gauntlet’ Zombies mode have been uncovered in old data-mine.
On 8 January, Treyarch has given a long awaited update to fans on what’s coming to Black Ops 4 Zombies. Among additions like Mastery Camos and new elixirs, what caught most attention was the brand new ‘Gauntlet’ mode.
While Treyarch kept relatively quiet about the mode, only specifying that it will launch first on Voyage of Despair on PS4, Reddit user ‘Cashmint‘ unearthed some more information.
In a post on 8 January, Cashmint shared images from a data-mine created on 30 October that contained the full text for the official in-game description of Gauntlet.
Gather your Crew and face the GAUNTLET! Based on Classic Mode, each Gauntlet features 30 ROUNDS of challenges with DIFFERENT RULES EACH ROUND. MEDALS and SPECIAL REWARDS are earned at ROUNDS 10, 20, and 30. If your Crew fails to complete a round as instructed, you will get a STRIKE. Three Strikes and it’s GAME OVER!
New Gauntlets will be released periodically with all-new challenges, and ALL GAUNTLET MATCHES ARE TIMED, so get out there and set some records!
The medals the description mentions most likely are these medals shown below that have been in the game files since the beta, Cashmint goes on to say in the comment section.
While this information has yet to be confirmed by Treyarch, the details given about the mode would make a lot of sense for Zombies. However, what is still lacking any new information is the long talked about Factions mode that Treyarch first mentioned at the Black Ops 4 reveal event in mid-2018.
Players can expect to get their hands on Gauntlet next week on 15 January, first on PlayStation 4.

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.
