Here are the most efficient ways to counter Firebreak’s pesky Reactor Core in Black Ops 4 multiplayer.
While Firebreak’s weaponry, Purifier, can be easily avoided, this specialist’s strong suit is his fast to charge equipment, Reactor Core. Not only does it deal damage over time to players in the surrounding area, it actually buffs the user as well. The caveat is that if Firebreak uses this equipment for too long, he begins to damage himself and WILL eventually die, however even the most casual players can easily avoid that.
To get out of these sticky situations, popular Youtuber, Drift0r, has come up with the fastest ways to shut this pyro down as efficiently as possible.
Before you even get your sights on Firebreak, the best defensive tactic is to have the perk, Tactical Mask, equipped which provides significant damage resistance from the core’s effects.
Drift0r goes on to explain that while Firebreak is in the crouched Reactor Core state, he has effectively 600HP, four times the normal player health, so shooting at him with an ordinary rifle by yourself is not very effective. Headshots do slightly more damage, but just a negligible amount.
When you spot a Firebreak with a Reactor Core, the best way to disable him would be either a Concussion Grenade, Seeker Mine, or 9 Bang. Any of these will stun Firebreak, freeing up his hands and making him much easier to kill.
Drift0r also points out that any lethal specialists weaponry like the War Machine, Annihilator, and Purifier, will work here and could take Firebreak down in one shot.
While these may take a while to charge up, the more frequent Combat Axe, as well as Combat Knife, will also get the job down with one swift motion.
With all that said, Drift0r lands on the melee as the best method to take down a Firebreak with Reactor Core.
Two melee hits will end this beasts reign of terror every time. Be sure to come to this decision quickly, because if you hesitate while on fire, you may not have the time to execute both melees and still come out alive.

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.
