Call of Duty: Black Ops 2

Hands-on with the new Black Ops 2 Create-A-Class

Published

on

The Create-A-Class system in Black Ops 2 has been reimagined and redesigned which makes it better than ever. For the first time in Call of Duty, the Create-A-Class system has been changed to the “Pick 10” allocation system.

The Pick 10 allocation system is essentially a way of giving the player the freedom to do whatever they want in Create-A-Class and come up with so many different combinations. Within the Pick 10 system you get 10 points to spend on whatever you want to have in that set. Everything in Create-A-Class is worth 1 point each and a player can spend these points on whatever they wish.

The Create-A-Class has the standard layout of “Primary Weapon, Primary Weapon Attachments, Secondary Weapon, Secondary Weapon Attachments, Perks, Lethals, Tacticals and finally the all new Wildcards”. Now you can have a standard Create-A-Class loadout like we have seen in all previous Call of Duty games but if you want to take full advantage of the Black Ops 2 Pick 10 system you can make some very strange but awesome loadouts.

Example Loadout using all 10 Points:
MP7 – Primary (1 Point)
Reflex Sight, Fast Mag – Primary Attachments (2 Points)
RPG – Secondary (1 Point)
Lightweight – Perk 1 (1 Point)
Cold Blooded – Perk 2 (1 Point)
Dead Silence – Perk 3 (1 Point)
Semtex – Lethal (1 Point)
Concussion x 2 – Tactical (2 Point)

This an example of a loadouts using all 10 points, but no Wildcards, but what happens if I want a Wildcard? It’s simple I could simply exchange my RPG (1 Point) for the Wildcard Primary Gunfighter (Gives the players 3 attachments for the in Call of Duty history, 1 Point) but still I have used all my 10 points so I can’t use my 3rd attachment, again I have decided to sacrifice 1 Concussion (1 Point) for the Silencer attachment (1 Point).

New Loadout after changes:
MP7 – Primary (1 Point)
Reflex Sight, Fast Mag, Silencer – Primary Attachments (3 Points)
Lightweight – Perk 1 (1 Point)
Cold Blooded – Perk 2 (1 Point)
Dead Silence – Perk 3 (1 Point)
Semtex – Lethal (1 Point)
Concussion x 1 – Tactical (1 Point)
Primary Gunfighter – Wildcard (1 Point)

Wildcards:
Wildcards are a brand new feature to Call of Duty and especially in the Create-A-Class system. Wildcards allows the player to expand on their loadouts even more and give the player the ability to enhance their guns, Lethals, Tacticals and perks.

• Primary Gunfighter — Allows a 3rd attachment for the primary weapon.
• Secondary Gunfighter — Allows a 2nd attachment for the secondary weapon.
• Overkill — Take a primary weapon as your secondary weapon.
• Danger Close — Take a second Lethal.
• Perk 1 Greed — Take a second Perk 1.
• Perk 2 Greed — Take a second Perk 2.
• Perk 3 Greed — Take a second Perk 3.
• Tactician — Take a Tactical grenade in place of your lethal Grenade.

Top five weapons that should be brought back for Black Ops 4 multiplayer

Published

on

These fan favorite guns from Treyarch’s past Call of Duty’s would feel right at home in Black Ops 4’s multiplayer.

With every iteration of Call of Duty, we have become accustomed to leaving old guns behind and learning how to use new ones. While that’s great for keeping the games feeling fresh, here are some guns that players would still love to use.

Stoner63

Black Ops 4 has its own set of unique Light Machine Guns, but nothing quite as bombastic as the Stoner63. Hailing from Black Op 1, this gun does what most LMG’s don’t.

Blends high rate of fire with tons of ammo, while still retaining low recoil. The Stoner63 is the missing LMG/AR hybrid gun that Black Ops 4 is sorely missing.

HAMR

The HAMR is a standout LMG due to its unique characteristics. For the first seven rounds, this gun has the fastest firing rate of any LMG in Black Ops 2. Shooting the HAMR in short bursts make this gun ideal for mid-range encounters.

Historically, the LMG class has always had the fewest guns in Call of Duty multiplayer, so adding the Stoner63 and HAMR would greatly beef up this category.

R870 MCS

While Black Ops 4 has chosen to relegate shotguns to secondaries, I’d love to see them bring back this weapon category to its former glory. Adding the R870 MCS, also known as the Remington, would be a great step in that direction.

Zipping around smaller maps with this gun in Black Ops 2 felt so good. One shot kills were possible even at mid-range, and the reload time wasn’t half bad for a pump-action gun.

Beef up the SG12, MOG 12, and add the R870 back would give Black Ops 4 shotguns some much-needed love.

MP40 & Galil

These guns are in a weird state. Both have been brought back several times, have had their names changed, then changed again, and are actually present in Blackout, yet are missing from Multiplayer. They most likely will be brought over sometime in the future, but having them currently in one portion of the game just makes me miss their omission in MP even more.

Whether they choose to call it the HG40, like in Black Ops 3, or the Grav, as seen in Blackout, any incarnation of these guns would be a treat. 

Ballistic Knife

Ever since making its debut in the first Black Ops multiplayer trailer way back in 2010, this weapon has caught the attention of every Call of Duty player. A knife that shoots knives. Pretty cool, eh?

When it comes to distinct secondary weapons, Black Ops 4 is lacking. No crossbow, no shield, no weird disc shooters, just shotguns, pistols, and launchers. Bringing back the Ballistic Knife would help keep Black Ops tied to its wacky roots. Playing Gun Game just doesn’t feel right without it.

These are just the guns I would like to see added to Black Ops 4 multiplayer. What other guns, whether from zombies, Modern Warfare, or even other franchises, would you like to see online? Let us know in the comments down below!
