DIVISIONS/BASIC TRAINING/ATTACHMENTS TUNING

Airborne: Buffed “Sprint faster over time”

  • Old: 4% faster and increase to 10%
  • New: 7% faster and increase to 10%
  • Explanation: The Energetic Basic Training is a flat 7% faster, so this change puts Airborne back on the map as the movement Division.

Saboteur Basic Training: Nerfed effectiveness of Satchel and S-Mine when using Saboteur Basic Training

  • Old: 0.0 sec fuse for Satchel and 0.1 sec delay for S-Mine detonation
  • New: 0.5 sec fuse for Satchel and 0.2 sec delay for S-Mine detonation
  • Explanation: We’ve heard your feedback about Saboteur and so we added a small delay before Satchel and S-Mines detonate to reduce strength. We’ve adjusted how Saboteur interacts with the Flanker Basic Training so that it no longer cancels it out and has its own detonation time.

Rifle Grenade Attachment: Buffed explosive min and max damage

  • Old: 25 min damage and 120 max damage
  • New: 35 min damage and 125 max damage
  • Explanation: The Rifle Grenade was relatively weak and wasn’t as useful as we intended it to be, so this buff should make it a more viable option.

Launched Basic Training: Buffed by increasing launcher damage when using Launched Basic Training

  • New: Launchers now deal 30% more damage with Launched Basic Training than before
  • Explanation: When we rolled out our Divisions Overhaul in April, we nerfed the strength of launchers to ensure that they wouldn’t dominate the play space and would rather be used primarily to take out Scorestreaks. This change makes this Basic Training and the use of launches a better option for a wider variety of playstyles.

Bayonet Charge/Attachment: Added a sprint speed increase while charging

  • New: +4% sprint speed
  • Explanation: With the addition of unlimited sprint for all, the Bayonet Charge lost its movement advantage, so we added a speed increase while charging that makes it more viable for closing space between you and an enemy.

Tactical Knife Attachment: Buffed by adding a melee speed increase when you have Tactical Knife Attachment equipped

  • New: 15% quicker than standard melee speed
  • Explanation: Now that Tactical Knife fills an Attachment slot, there is less of a reason to use it over a melee weapon. This small buff makes it more usable.

Shifty Basic Training: Buffed by increasing number of additional Pistol Attachments

  • Old: 1 additional pistol attachment
  • New: 2 additional pistol attachments
  • Explanation: Shifty Basic Training is currently on the low-end of Basic Training usage. This change should make using pistols more viable outside of the Infantry Division.

GAMEBATTLES/CoDCASTER/ESPORTS MODE

  • Fixed issue in GameBattles where Restricted Items were displaying in default loadouts
  • Fixed issue where when spectating in CoDCaster mode, players with Infantry Division equipped will not appear to have a Division patch in the Division info display

ZOMBIES

  • Fixed UI issues with the Dynamo variant for Nazi Zombies
  • Fixed functionality and UI issues with post-match lobbies
  • Fixed UI issue where notifications where not populating properly
  • Fixed issue in The Shadowed Throne where ammo was not able to be replenished for the Ripsaw
  • Fixed issue in The Shadowed Throne where players were able to kill to kill the human, as well as the zombie, in vignettes
  • Fixed various map exploits on The Shadowed Throne
  • Fixed issue where splitscreen players lost functionality when simultaneously pressing Back and Select
  • Fixed issues with completing certain quests in The Shadowed Throne

Is Black Ops 2 being remastered? Rumors & leaks

Fans have been wondering for sometime if CoD: Black Ops 2 is going to be remastered, and we’ll answer that today.

Published

black ops 2 remaster

Several Call of Duty games have received the remaster treatment in recent years, and it’s left fans wondering if the mega-popular Black Ops 2 will get one. Here are all the latest rumors and leaks regarding a Black Ops 2 remaster.

The popularity of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 simply cannot be understated with the game being considered the greatest of all time by many. But fast-forward to 2021, and players want to know if this beloved entry in the CoD franchise will be remastered.

The premise of Call of Duty remasters was kickstarted by the 2016 Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare Remastered title. Since then, we’ve also had the Modern Warfare 2 campaign be remastered, and there are rumors of Modern Warfare 3 being remastered, despite Activision saying it isn’t.

Is Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 being remastered?

From what we understand, no, not at this time. There is absolutely nothing to suggest that any form of Black Ops remaster is in the works.

Naturally, people would think that Treyarch’s Black Ops may receive the same love that the Modern Warfare franchise has gotten, but alas it doesn’t seem to be the case.

Why isn’t Black Ops 2 being remastered?

We believe there could be two strong reasons for Black Ops 2 not being remastered, one being that it would oversaturate the CoD market, and also that we’ve already seen a few of its maps recently.

If a full Black Ops 2 remaster were to exist anytime soon, it would mean that Activision would have the end of Black Ops Cold War’s run, 2019’s Modern Warfare, Warzone, Vanguard, and Black Ops 2.

One of the problems 2016’s Infinite Warfare suffered from is that it released with the full Call of Duty 4 remaster, and consequently, the player base was divided between the two games.

Furthermore, Black Ops Cold War featured no less than seven Black Ops 2 map remasters throughout its multiple seasons, and they feel too fresh in the memory to warrant a remaster of the multiplayer.

We could see a remaster of the Black Ops campaigns, following the successful rerelease of the Modern Warfare 2 campaign.


Activision may have some surprises and remasters up their sleeves, but for the time being, we can only speculate and ask you to keep checking in to see if anything becomes official.

Infinity Ward announces new Austin office as studio gears up for CoD 2022

The original Call of Duty developer, Infinity Ward, is expanding its operations via a new office in Austin, Texas for CoD 2022.

Infinity ward new austin texas office

One of the three developers behind the Call of Duty franchise is getting a new office. Infinity Ward is expanding its operations via a new office in Austin, Texas, in preparation for CoD 2022.

Infinity Ward is the developer behind the original Call of Duty game. Activision founded Infinity Ward in 2002, with the first Call of Duty title being released in 2003. This birthed one of the most iconic video game franchises to date.

Infinity Ward would go on to develop Call of Duty 2 in 2005 before alternating developers. Now, Infinity Ward is known for developing the Modern Warfare titles, which are released roughly every three years.

With Infinity Ward releasing the last Modern Warfare title in 2019, the developer is gearing up for another release in 2022. We don’t know what CoD 2022 will be just yet, but we do know that Infinity Ward is expanding its operations with a new office.

Today, Infinity Ward announced via Twitter that it would be opening a new office in Austin, Texas. This would be the fourth development hub for the company, with the other three being located in Los Angeles, Poland, and Mexico.

This also means that Infinity Ward is hiring. According to Infinity Ward, the Austin office is currently hiring for all positions, and you can find all of the available jobs posted on the Infinity Ward website.

Call of Duty: Vanguard releases in less than a month. It’s taking players back to WWII, where Infinity Ward is expected to bring the franchise back to modern times, with CoD 2022 speculated to be a sequel to Modern Warfare 2019.

That being said, we have no official idea what to expect from Infinity Ward going into 2022, but with the significant success of Modern Warfare 2019, it will no doubt be a Call of Duty game plenty of players will love.

Regardless, Infinity Ward is planning something big, and the new office proves just that. So, if Vanguard isn’t your cup of tea, CoD 2022 is just a year away.

biggest games in 2022

2022 is shaping up to be a massive year for video games. Between franchises such as God of War, Gran Turismo, Horizon, Pokemon, and Harry Potter, the PS5, Xbox Series X, Switch, PC, and Stadia have some mammoth titles to host. Here’s an extensive look into the biggest games and potential release dates too.

The beginning of 2022 will signal over a year since the PS5, and Xbox Series X took video games to the ninth generation of consoles. Developers have had plenty of time to chew the fat and harness the power of the consoles to create immense AAA experiences.

There’s also plenty of mileage left for the Nintendo Switch, and of course, PC, Stadia, and Steam are always on the march.

With 2021 already delivering Returnal, Resident Evil Village, Call of Duty: Vanguard, Battlefield 2042, Halo Infinite, Ratchet & Clank, and Far Cry 6, 2022 looks to go even bolder.

PS5, Xbox, Switch, PC, Steam & Stadia video games in 2022

Some genuinely iconic franchises and household names are expected to launch video games in 2022, so here’s a look at the top AAA video games coming in 2022.

God of War: Ragnarok release date: 2022

Players got a juicy look at the next epic adventure in Santa Monica’s God of War franchise during the 2021 PlayStation Experience. Kratos and Atreus are set to battle with Freya, possibly Thor, and their own demons.

God of War Ragnarok looks like it’s expanded upon the reboot to incorporate more NPCs, more spectacular gameplay, and a gripping narrative that will test the bond between father and son.

Horizon Forbidden West release date: February 18, 2022

Aloy is one of the standout protagonists in gaming during modern times, and her post-apocalyptic adventures are set to continue in Horizon Forbidden West.

She seeks to uncover even more truth and learn about the state of the world she resides in, all the while battling even more dangerous robotic creatures and nature itself.

Elden Ring release date: January 21, 2022

One of the first games to arrive in 2022, Elden Ring is the next sinister and challenging game to come from the sadistic bunch at FromSoftware.

Their track record at producing brutal yet satisfying RPGs will be tested in the form of Elden Ring, their newest ‘Souls’ game. Unlike previous FromSoftware games, there seems to be a much deeper emphasis on the story with Game of Thrones creator George R. R. Martin on board to help with the narrative.

Pokemon Legends: Arceus release date: January 28, 2022

Unlike the typical dual-releases that Pokemon specializes in, Pokemon Legends: Arceus is a standalone game that continues the growth shown in recent, mainline Pokemon titles.

Embracing the open-world nature of 2020’s Pokemon Sword and Shield, Arceus is a brand new adventure that will involve all the familiar, beloved elements of Pokemon games: obtaining them, training them, leveling them, and catching them all!

Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Extraction release date: January 2022

Another spin-off, this time from the team at Ubisoft as they take a drastic turn away from the realism of simulated combat.

Instead, Rainbow Six Extraction delves into the world of the unknown, and non-human, as teams of three pull together to take down alien creatures called Archaeans. It will feature lots of the same gameplay mechanics and Operators from Siege, but with a darker, deadly twist.

Dying Light 2 release date: February 4, 2022

The long-awaited sequel to the hit 2015 survival-adventure game, Dying Light 2 promises to bring more parkour-zombie-survival action that made the first such a breakout success.

Offering more open-world exploration, the player must scavenge, forge friendships (and weapons), and deal with both friendly and hostile forces.

As with the first Dying Light, players need to make the most of the precious daylight before night strikes, as the undead gets a bit more fidgety and murderous.

Gran Turismo 7 release date: March 4, 2022

Polyphony Digital is infamous for taking their time between each Gran Turismo release to ensure every one is as polished as can be, and the PS5 looks set to make Gran Turismo 7 one of the best-looking games ever.

Like with God of War Ragnarok, the 2021 PlayStation Experience gave fans a glimpse into the high-speed action they can expect with Gran Turismo 7.

It’s learned from its predecessor’s mistakes and will launch with a complete career mode, and could be a bonafide system-seller for Sony and the PlayStation brand.

Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 release date: 2022

It wouldn’t be a stretch to say that Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 could easily be one of the most anticipated games of all time.

Breath of the Wild took the world by storm in 2017 with its rich, expressive world that deviated from the conventions of traditional Zelda games. Many millions of copies sold later, and fans everywhere are desperate for the next chapter for Link in this gorgeous, sprawling version of Hyrule.

Call of Duty 2022 release date: 2022

It wouldn’t be a year of video games without a major Call of Duty release, and we expect 2022 to be no different.

Given that there’s already a buzz about Call of Duty 2023, we would say it’s safe to assume that another Call of Duty game will release in 2022.

With Vanguard being set in World War 2, rumors are rife that the 2022 Call of Duty will be a Modern Warfare sequel.

Gotham Knights release date: 2022

A Gotham City without the caped crusader is a strange thought, but that’s the threat that faces it as Bruce Wayne is dead.

In Batman’s place, his former proteges need to step up and protect Gotham, batting away any threats of crime perpetrated by some of its most evil supervillains. Featuring co-operative mode, players can take control of these plucky heroes and hopefully do Batman proud.

Hogwarts Legacy release date: 2022

There have been many Harry Potter movie tie-in games, but there still hasn’t been an authentic RPG experience that lets you become your own wizard – until now.

Hogwarts Legacy will let fans worldwide finally live out their dream of attending Hogwarts, and the game allows players to select their House, the classes they do, and customize their character, all the while fighting monsters and completing quests.


That completes our guide to the biggest and most anticipated video games that are due to arrive in 2022.
