How to Use Gestures to Make Squad Decisions in Blackout for Black Ops 4

Published

“Rock, Paper, Scissors for the Final Kill”

You might think Gestures and Emotes are pure vanity and serve no real function, however some Blackout players beg to differ. Part of the ongoing Operation: Absolute Zero there are 3 legendary gestures that unlock at tiers 28, 29, and 30. Rock, Paper, and Scissors.

Unlocked at Tiers 28, 29, 30 are the Rock, Paper, and Scissor Gestures

At first, I thought these were a little weird. What am I going to do with a single “Rock” emote in the middle of a Blackout match in Black Ops 4? Well, some fans opened my eyes and showed how useful they can be when all squadmates equip all three Gestures.

In a video tweeted by @Tayyab_402, he can be seen pulling up his Gesture wheel in front of one of his teammates. With only one other player left aside from their 3-man squad, they know they have the game in their hands.

So to spice it up, they play the classic game of Rock, Paper, Scissors to determine who gets the glory of the final kill. After Tayyab wins the Rochambeau, he runs forward to get the kill and secure the win.

This tweet was then quote tweeted by Studio Design Director, David Vonderhaar, where he confessed that “These are the only 3 emotes I have equipped, but nobody likes to play with me. You guys are my favourite and this is amazing.”

If the folk you play with are bad at making decisions and can’t fairly decide what actions you’ll take, try this fun trick and let us know how it goes!

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

Published

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.
