  • Now, let’s get an in-depth look at all Operation Spectre Rising has to offer…

Multiplayer

Spectre is back! The covert expert assassin returns from Call of Duty®: Black Ops III with revamped stealth capabilities. 

Spectre’s background is still shrouded in mystery, but the same deadly, cold, and strategic killer has now arrived in Black Ops 4. Spectre’s Special Issue Equipment is the Smoke grenade, the perfect accessory for stealth kills when you (and you alone) are able to see enemies through the haze. Additionally, Spectre’s Special Issue Weaponry is the Shadow Blade: when it’s activated, Spectre switches to third-person for complete field-of-view of nearby enemies. While wielding the blade, Spectre can roll and dodge to avoid incoming bullets and eliminate opponents with a single swipe. Spectre is available at Tier 1 of the Operation, and once unlocked, will be playable in Multiplayer and Blackout.

New game modes are coming to Multiplayer, starting with Prop Hunt! Prop Hunt is an epic game of Call of Duty hide-and-don’t be killed. Choose your prop and blend in with your environment to avoid capture while the opposing team searches the map to uncover and eliminate players disguised as props.

Earn new Multiplayer weapons, available in the Contraband Stream on day one of the Operation:

  • The Nifo’Oti melee weapon, a ruthless one-hit kill club.
  • The Tigershark, a run-and-gun LMG with faster than average reload time.

Later in the Operation, Capture the Flag will make its Call of Duty®: Black Ops 4 debut. Pick up the flag from enemy territory and deliver it back to your base to score in this classic Multiplayer game mode. Plus, expect more alternate-weather maps, such as Hacienda Twilight, to change up the environment and offer new variety in the gameplay experiences on these maps.

Additionally, we’ll introduce new World League Hub features to heighten the competitive experience: a suspension system, increased penalties, and tighter skill-based matchmaking.

Our suspension system will temporarily ban players who leave or disconnect from matches. Upon leaving a League Play match, players will be banned for a brief amount of time. The more suspensions a player has, the longer their ban will be. We’ve also upped the penalty, so players leaving matches will lose more points. Lastly, our skill-based matchmaking will be improved to address skill-matching issues presented by parties. With these changes, we hope to minimize match quitting and produce tighter matches.


Blackout

Prepare for a dramatic new approach to key destinations following the flood…

The “high ground” has taken on a whole new meaning with the Wetworks Map Update, as multiple areas including Factory, Cargo Docks, Hijacked, and the farm near Firing Range have been flooded by an explosion at Hydro Dam. Drive a boat through the barn or loot underwater containers spilled from Cargo Docks. Hijacked has floated upstream to the northwest shoreline allowing players on the luxurious yacht to engage with opponents at Construction Site. All the river banks have been flooded, washing ashore house boats and creating new loot and combat opportunities. Rediscover Blackout through the Wetworks Map Update to find new tactical approaches and gameplay strategies.

A new Blackout game mode, Bounty Hunter,will be live at the start of the Operation. Drop in and find the beacons of light that indicate Spectre Stashes, which contain the Shadow Blade and other valuable items like Level 3 Armor, Smoke, stealth-related Perks, and Trauma Kits. Equipping the Shadow Blade will transform the player into Spectre, giving them unique skills including increased movement speed, the ability to see digital footprints of nearby enemies, and full third-person camera perspective. Spectre can carry both the Shadow Blade and a normal weapon. When the normal weapon is equipped, Spectre will return to first-person view.

With each new Collapse in Bounty Hunter, players with the most kills will be marked as Bounty targets that only Spectre can see. Eliminate the target or survive the Bounty attack to be rewarded with a Supply Drop on your position. Unique to Bounty Hunter, players can also perform Humiliations on downed enemies. These are fatal finishing moves to end an opponent in dramatic fashion. Spectre has a distinct Humiliation that uses the Shadow Blade to deal an epic final blow. Channel your inner assassin and work together to be the last team standing.

More Blackout game modes are on the way including Ground War, which takes the familiar large-scale, team-vs.-team Multiplayer format to a new level of chaos and turns battle royale into all-out war. Plus, Down But Not Out returns with revamped rules and mechanics like escalating loadouts and the squad wipe notification feature, alongside other fan-favorite limited time modes like Hot Pursuit!

The DART Multiplayer Scorestreak has come to Blackout. Launch this equipment for a bird’s-eye view of your opponents. Much like the Recon Car, the DART is a reconnaissance tool that can be utilized to tactically plan your next steps.

Later in the Operation, expect more weapons, a new vehicle, and new Equipment to be added to Blackout, creating an even more diverse pool of items across the map.

Gameplay updates to Alcatraz have been introduced to focus on helping players battle each other (and not the Collapse) in the final moments of the game. The map now has more doors, holes, and stairways, so players won’t get stuck at dead ends when the circle is closing in. Plus, mantling improvements will allow players to climb up and over objects quicker to keep up with the frenetic and fun gameplay pacing.

In addition to Spectre’s Blackout debut, more characters will be available in the Black Market this Operation:

  • Blackjack, the Black Market mercenary trader
  • Sarah HallBlack Ops III’s CORVUS-infected intelligence expert
  • Sergei, Reznov’s fellow Vorkuta inmate
  • Misty,from the Zombies Victis crew
  • David Mason, the protagonist of Call of Duty®: Black Ops II
  • Uncle Frank, an older Sgt. Woods from Black Ops II.


Zombies

The latest Gauntlet arrives for “Dead of the Night” with this Operation: Super Blood Wolf Moon

Hit the pool table to sink the stripes and solids in the “Pool Party” round and survive the wolves during “Be-were”! The latest Gauntlet leans into the glitz and glamour of the mansion and the thrilling horrors of the undead. Keep your wits about you to tackle all 30 rounds to complete the Gauntlet.

More Gauntlets are on its way in this Operation, including the Labours of Hercules for “Ancient Evil” and Hard Mode Gauntlets, which will debut in Unsinkable for “Voyage of Despair”.

Lay down covering fire and slay the horde with the Tigershark LMG, the newest Contraband weapon found in the Mystery Box. The Tigershark is an agile LMG for dishing out heavy fire on the go. If you add it to your arsenal, upgrade it in the Pack-a-Punch machine for the new Smilomegalodon, which gives players a larger ammo pool and increases its damage output.

The new Classic Elixir Restock feature ensures you’ll never have an empty Elixir slot during a Zombies match. If you use up an Elixir during a match, the empty slot will be filled with a Classic Elixir. Though the Classic Elixir will be chosen at random, team-friendly Elixirs like “Nowhere But There!” have a greater chance of being chosen when playing in co-op matches. Plus, if you rush into a match without Elixirs, a Classic Elixir will be placed in the empty slot to back you up when needed.

Additionally, more features will be introduced to Zombies during this Operation, including Gauntlet Friend Leaderboards, allowing Zombies fans to compare their Gauntlet skills to their friends and recent players.


Black Market

An all-new Operation brings all-new new goods.

Operation Spectre Rising will feature 50 unique Tiers paced to align with the first half of the Operation. This is a smaller collection of content relative to previous Operations and spans a shorter duration of time, as a unique new set of content will come alongside the Days of Summer update in June. Ultimately, this will translate to easier, more frequent updates that establishes a steadier cadence.

The Black Market will also feature two new item types: Weapon Charms and Death Effects. Weapon Charms can be equipped to further personalize your weapon. Charms dangle from your weapon during battle for an added personal touch while you fight.

Death Effects add a special bang to your bullet. Instead of the typical blood spatter, equip a Death Effect for unique effects to occur when you take down the enemy. For instance, the “Surprise Party” Death Effect sprays confetti from the opponent you’ve eliminated. When equipped, all kills are accompanied by a Death Effect to add some flavor to your takedowns.

Here are some highlights from the Black Market that will be available during Operation Spectre Rising:

  • 50 Tiers: Preview all the goods of the first half of this Operation on day one.
  • New Specialist: Spectre is available at Tier 1 and playable in Multiplayer and Blackout once unlocked.
  • New Contraband Weapons: The Black Ops 4 arsenal gets bigger with the addition of the Nifo’Oti melee weapon, a Polynesian club, and the Tigershark, an agile LMG with the fastest reload time in its class.
  • New Blackout CharactersAbigail “Misty” Barton will be available at the launch of the Operation as a Special Order in Blackjack’s Shop in the Black Market. Also available during Operation Spectre Rising are Sarah Hall, an intelligence expert from Taylor’s team in Black Ops III, and Blackjack,a weapons dealer for the 54 Immortals and the mercenary trader who runs the Black Market, join the Blackout character roster. More playable characters, including Sergei and David Mason, are scheduled to arrive throughout the Operation.
  • New Signature Weapons: Earn 25% more XP per kill with the latest MK II signature weapons for the RampageVapr-XKGSwitchblade X9, and Spitfire, available in Reserves.
  • New Gestures: In addition to a set of new Gestures, now you can also play them in the lobby before entering a match in Multiplayer, League Play, or Blackout! Additionally, Gestures and Tags are now unified into a single wheel for all characters, and these can be accessed and customized by selecting the new Extras button directly in the lobby.
  • Death Effects: Switch up the experience of taking down the enemy with Death Effects. The “Make it Rain” Death Effect is for the baller in all of us, “Surprise Party” adds a dash of confetti even when it’s not your birthday, and “Pyrotechnic” celebrates your success with fireworks. These three Legendary Death Effects will be available in Reserves.
  • Weapon Charms: Adorn your favorite weapon with accessories that fit your personality. Ten Weapon Charms will be available in Reserves, including a mini-Ruin “Lil’ Donnie”“Snake Eyes” hanging dice, and “Lil’ Ray”, the iconic Zombies ray gun.
  • New Outfits: Visualize your inner assassin with unique Specialist outfits earned in the Contraband stream or found in the Black Market, including Seraph’s “Silver Bullet” or Ajax’s “Hired Gun” outfits.
  • New Mastercrafts: “The Lost Patrol” Mastercraft for the SDM and the “Venom Cocktail” Mastercraft for the Hades will both be available in Blackjack’s Shop in the Black Market.
  • New Reactive Camos: The Afterlife Reactive Camo, found in Reserves, can be equipped to all weapons and starts as a purplish hue that changes in-game with kills, and the Nebula Reactive Camo will arrive in Blackjack’s Shop later in the Operation.
  • Blackjack’s Reserves: In addition to Death Effects and Weapon Charms, Reserves contain Legendary Specialist outfits for Firebreak and Prophet and the all-new Sea Storm Jump Pack for Blackout, along with all Reserve content from previous Operations.

Black Ops Pass

Black Ops Pass owners get three new Multiplayer maps in Operation Spectre Rising! We’re introducing two brand new maps and one re-imagined Call of Duty®: Black Ops classic, which will join the regular map rotation in Core and Hardcore playlists at the start of the Operation. And in Blackout, a familiar face returns from Black Ops II as a new playable character.

Spice up your Multiplayer battles on Masquerade.Using the distraction of a happy aquatic festival in Bangladesh, elite assassins have hijacked parade floats to use as battering rams to crack open and breach a U.S. embassy. The spice vendors, parade floats, and paint splattered roads offer a stark contrast with the high-alert status of the multi-leveled embassy, creating an eclectic environment for a variety of gameplay.

Pick up the action at the map’s center where parade floats have broken through the embassy’s walls and get to the top to eliminate encroaching attackers. Or, fight in the village through a small playground and past graffiti covered walls to experience the festival highlights. Wherever the fight takes you, be on alert for the enemy throughout the diverse backdrop of Masquerade.

Gear up for the geothermal hot springs of Artifact. In the remote landscape of Iceland, hired treasure hunters have tracked down and unearthed an ancient zombie artifact. Unfortunately for them, they aren’t the only ones after it. Discover the surprises of this rocky and full-terrain map while battling for the high ground amidst deadly geysers.

The platformer-style terrain and various pathways create unique experiences to traverse the map. On the south side, climb the ladder and slide into the glacier to find multiple ways in and out of the dig site. Alternatively, take the high ground to the north to spot enemies across the map and down below. Lastly, be mindful of the geysers which spell instant death for those caught in an eruption. Master the terrain and take the fight off the grid in Artifact.

WMD is back. Deep within the snowy Russian borders, a covert laboratory has spun up production of weaponized Nova 6 chemicals. A battleground rife with multiple high positions, warehouses, and staircases, WMD requires players to always be prepared for a fight.

Trade the risks for the rewards of the water tower and western overlooks to catch unsuspecting enemies on the ground, or battle in and across centrally located warehouses with multiple entry and exit points that demand players stay on alert. Create new epic Multiplayer moments on this fan-favorite classic map.

Blackout’s newest character is Uncle Frank, AKA Sgt. Frank Woods from Black Ops II – and he’s ready to drop in. Out from The Vault and onto the battlefield, Uncle Frank is here to take on the enemy, all the way to the final Collapse.

Activision’s in-game currency lets players purchase cosmetics for their characters, and we’ve got everything you need to know about CoD Points prices, how to buy them, and all the items you can spend them on.

Call of Duty offers a huge palette of extra goodies you can add to your game, requiring players to spend their own currency named CoD Points to acquire them.

CoD Points can be purchased using the menu systems in games like Vanguard or Warzone or through console marketplaces like the PS Store or Xbox Marketplace.

The gaming landscape has changed over the years with the incorporation of microtransactions and live-gaming services. Many games offer extra content – with cosmetics being a big proponent of this. With Vanguard and Warzone offering special Attack on Titan and Snoop Dogg skins as well as unique weapon Blueprints for popular weapons, it becomes easy to see why players would want to spend CoD Points.

CoD Points prices

There are different amounts and bundles you can opt for when buying CoD Points that are tailored to different needs.

Some players just need to top up their account with a few hundred points to get the latest bundle. Whereas others need a big restock with the intention of spending many points. The more points you want, the bigger the discounts grow.

Here are the different prices for the various CoD Points bundles:

  • 200 CoD Points: $1.99 / £1.79
  • 500 CoD Points: $4.99 / £4.31
  • 1,000 (+100 Bonus) CoD Points: $9.99 / £8.49

How to buy COD Points

You can be very flexible with how you buy COD Points as there are a few different ways to do so. To make sure you’re buying them for the right platform, just double-check with our guide on transferring COD Points across platforms.

There are four ways you can buy COD Points:

  • PC players can purchase CoD Points on the Battle.net website
  • PS4 & PS5 players can purchase CoD Points in the PS Store on their console, or on the PlayStation website
  • Xbox Series X, Series S, or One players can buy CoD Points on the Xbox Marketplace on their console, or the official Microsoft Store website
  • Select physical retailer’s stock vouchers and gift cards with a code that players can redeem for CoD Points.

Where to spend CoD Points

Spending your CoD Points is incredibly easy, with players able to purchase cosmetic bundles and Blueprints in the in-game store.

The stores are available in Vanguard, Warzone, Black Ops Cold War, and Modern Warfare, so you can kit out your Operator regardless of your preferred title.

Do CoD Points carry over across games?

The good news is that your CoD Points will transfer across your Call of Duty games, as they are linked to your Activision account.

Players who will still have CoD Points in their account from Vanguard don’t need to worry, as they will automatically be in your account when Modern Warfare 2 releases.

What can I buy with COD Points?

Call of Duty’s currency is used to primarily buy two things: the Battle Pass for the current season and Bundles containing a variety of items.

Battle Pass

Vanguard Season 1 Battle Pass

A Battle Pass is a paid Tier system that allows regular players to earn dozens of extra rewards and cosmetics for essentially playing the game.

Vanguard and Warzone Pacific are approaching Season 3 at the moment. Both titles are currently running in tandem with each other and share the same Battle Pass.

It features 100 Tiers for players to smash their way through the course of a season, and if players are committed enough, they can actually earn enough CoD Points, through leveling up the pass, to get the next one for free.

You’ll be able to buy the Vanguard & Warzone Season 3 Battle Pass via a couple of different methods on April 27, 2022:

Bundles

Attack on Titan bundle CoD

The other main content you can buy is a wide range of Bundles and Operator Bundles. These special bundles vary in price, and each comes with its own unique items.

The collectibles you can expect to find are Calling Cards, Emblems, Operator Skins, Weapon Blueprints, Weapon Charms, and more.


Also, check out how Vanguard is officially getting a round-based Zombies map after Season 3 or how Warzone players are begging for Godzilla & King Kong Operator skins.

JGOD reveals their favorite Call of Duty Perk of all time

Call of Duty content creator JGOD recently revealed their favorite Multiplayer Perk of all time, a pick that many may have forgotten about.

Published

on

jgod best cod perk

JGOD let the community know his favorite Call of Duty Perk of all time, which many new players may not even have used before, especially as it’s not available in Warzone.

JGOD is known for their in-depth content for Call of Duty games, especially Warzone. The Youtuber often looks into the stats and details for weapons and loadouts, figuring out the best attachments,Perks, and equipment to use.

With that being said, it’s often great to hear JGOD’s personal opinions on their favorite things to use in Call of Duty, which is exactly what he gave when our Twitter page asked the community what the best CoD Perk of all time is.

vanguard perks

Our CharlieINTEL Twitter page asked the CoD community what the best Call of Duty Perk of all time is.

For those in the community who have been following the franchise since the CoD 4 days, this question is much harder to answer simply because there have been so many great Perks over the years that haven’t returned or just aren’t in Warzone.

JGOD is one of those players who has been in the community for a long time, so their pick might have some of the modern players slightly bemused.

The content creator’s pick for their favorite CoD Perk of all time is Stalker from Modern Warfare 3, which was released back in 2011. This Perk got rid of all movement penalties while aiming down sights.

This allowed players to strafe effectively while using an LMG, Sniper Rifle, and any other weapon with poor mobility, which was very effective in MW3.

The Perk basically turned Assault Rifles into SMGs, meaning they were effective at close and long ranges.

call of duty modern warfare 3

Further, if players unlocked the Pro version of the Perk, it also delayed Bouncing Betty, Claymore, and IMS detection, which were very strong equipment in MW3.

Although Stalker returned in Call of Duty: Ghosts, the description was slightly different from the MW3 version, and clearly, JGOD’s post is the Perk image from MW3.

Other popular Call of Duty players also weighed in on the debate, with Optic Hitch also sharing their opinion in the comments, stating that MW2’s Ninja Pro was the best Perk of all time: “Ninja Pro MW2. Not close.”


Everyone will have their preference as the best Call of Duty Perk of all time comes down to personal opinion, but Stalker is definitely not a bad shout.

biggest games in 2022

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

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 pushing the envelope.

With 2022 already delivering Horizon Forbidden West, Elden Ring, Pokemon Legends: Arceus, Rainbow Six Extraction, and Gran Turismo 7, the remainder of the year is also looking to bring the heat. Here’s a look at the top AAA video games coming in 2022.

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

Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 release date: Fall 2022

For the first in almost 20 years, the Call of Duty franchise will be breaking its annual release schedule in 2023. This means that players will be stuck with CoD’s 2022 title, Modern Warfare 2 for two years.

The 2022 iteration of the iconic franchise is set to be a direct sequel to 2019’s Modern Warfare. The game will be built on a brand-new engine, and the development of the game is being led by Infinity Ward.

Gotham Knights release date: October 25, 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: Holiday 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.

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.

Final Fantasy XVI release date: late 2022

Final Fantasy XVI protagonist

The hype surrounding Final Fantasy XVI is beginning to mount as we get deeper into 2022. It’s the collaboration between Square Enix and the combat designer of Devil May Cry 5, Ryota Suzuki that has fans of the franchise excited.

The developers have confirmed that they would release additional information about the sixteenth game in the mainline Final Fantasy franchise around Spring 2022. Hopefully, this will include a release date giving RPG fanatics something to look forward to.

Pokémon Scarlet and Violet release date: late 2022

Pokemon Scarlet and Violet starter town

2022 is a great year to be a Pokemon fan. Shortly after the release of Pokemon Legends: Arceus, Nintendo wasted no time announcing their newest mainline titles. Pokemon Violet and Pokemon Scarlet will introduce players to the ninth generation of Pokemon games.

Nintendo has already shared details about the game including the implementation of open-world areas as well as the three starter Pokémon: Sprigatito, Fuecoco, and Quaxly.

Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 release date: delayed to 2023

link running in breath of the wild 2

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.

Unfortunately on March 29, 2022, Nintendo announced that Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 would be pushed back to a 2023 release date.


That completes our guide to the biggest and most anticipated video games that are due to arrive in 2022. For all the latest news and guides on these games and more, stay tuned to Charlie INTEL!
