On Monday, Feb 11th, we asked you all about your favorite Black Ops 4 multiplayer weapons. Let’s take a look at what you voted on.
The poll on Monday consisted of every weapon in Black Ops 4’s multiplayer including melee weapons and DLC guns.
The 31 weapons were led by pretty obvious choices due to their power since the beginning of the game’s life cycle. The Top 3 favorite weapons for the community are the Maddox RFB, Saug 9mm, and ICR-7. All three of these weapons are widely used and considered the three best weapons in the game.
After this we had the Spitfire, a decent contender to the Saug’s crown. The SWAT showed up at fifth place as the better of the two DLC weapons.
You can see the full list of votes embedded down below (you can still vote if you choose to).
The Titan, the monstrous LMG, fell down all the way to 9th place. This is important to note as the gun is considered to be the best weapon in the game. We suspect this to be due to the weapon’s notoriety. We hope, as much as you, that the weapon is nerfed soon.
The Rampart 17 and KN-57 took 6th & 7th respectively. We thought we point this out as the weapons are less powerful than other ARs, but still managed to place quite high. The Rampart can equip double High Calibers, but still falls short of the ICR-7’s and Maddox’s power. This shows a want among the community for additional gun variance and better balance.
We’ll do a new weapon poll a week or so after the big multiplayer balance patch that has been promised by Treyarch. There is no date set for the update as of this time.
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.
