New gear may be coming to Call of Duty Black Ops 4
With Operation Grand Heist coming to end on April 29, could we see one last curtain call addition? Found in-game through a glitch, Reddit user, Xarson1270, shares a screenshot of some new descriptive text detailing “Smoke”.
Xarson1270 explains in the comments of his post that this mismatched text appeared when they were changing their acoustic sensor in create-a-class. The screenshot displays the acoustic sensor with some text reading:
Smoke: Smoke grenade with large radius. Enemies inside are visible to Spectre.
Not only does this glitch reveal some new equipment, but full-on mentions the Black Ops 3 Specialist, Spectre! While it is odd that this text is showing up in the Gear tab, as specialist equipment normally doesn’t appear here, it could still allude to some future updates.
Call of Duty Black Ops 4 currently has no smoke grenades outside of Blackout. What’s even more interesting is that in Black Ops 3, smoke grenades weren’t even part of Specre’s arsenal.
For those who missed out on Treyarch’s previous Call of Duty, Spectre was essentially a cybernetic ninja that could use Active Camo to sneak around the map or the Ripper weapon that would instakill enemies with one swipe from far distances.
While we don’t know if Spectre or Smoke Grenades will make their way to Black Ops 4, this leak reveals that there is a high probability of these two joining the fray very soon.
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.
