Call of Duty’s efforts to create extra cashflow through micro-transactions has been controversial, but the process has led to some absolute gems in the camo department.
As Call of Duties continue roll out, we want to remember the times we had with previous installments of the series. It’s a natural human reaction to want to relive pieces of our past that spark joy or wonder.
A rather uncomplicated way for developers to link their modern generation Call of Duties to the past ones is through transporting customization features from previous titles.
Mainly, we’re talking about camos from previous Black Ops games. Treyarch’s art design team has produced some of CoD’s greatest camo hits and here are some we would like to see return.
The list below includes a non-DLC camo from among the ranks of previous Black Ops titles in addition to the DLC additions. The camos are listed in the same order as the images in their respective galleries appear.
Black Ops 2
- Bacon Camo
- Art of War Camo
- Benjamins Camo
- Cyborg Camo
Black Ops 3
- Policia Camo
- Halcyon Camo
- Sunshine Camo
- Gem Camo
- Swindler Camo
- Energeon Camo
- Transgression Camo
- Storm Camo
- Ice Camo
- Monochrome Camo
- eSports Organization Camos
All of these camos brought vibrancy to the multiplayer world with dynamic effects and bright, striking color palettes. Black Ops 4 already contains a great variety of original and nostalgic camos and we would like to see these classics added to the mix. Perhaps in a future Contraband stream?
With this said, we obviously understand the time constraints at Treyarch and their priorities of League Play, Blackout, and other content updates.
Inserting these old camos would require Treyarch to upgrade the old camos to current resolution standards as well as implement the new art into their game’s texture pipeline.

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.
