SHGames has a ‘different solution for Dead Silence’ in the works, says they’ll tweak based on feedback

Published

Following the MP reveal this week, many noted that Advanced Warfare MP doesn’t have any Dead Silence perk in the game. Many players were concerned about this as the footsteps in Advanced Warfare do sound a tab bit loud from what you can hear from the gameplay thus far.

Speaking on Reddit, Michael Condrey stated that the team is currently working on a different, better solution for Dead Silence in the works.

We’ve got a different, and we what this is better, solution for Dead Silence in the works. If we are wrong, we’ll bring it back. But I don’t think that is going to be the case.

Do you think Dead Silence perk should return?

Xbox Series X players can play PS2 games on their console

Xbox owners have discovered a way to play PS2 games on the new series S and X.

Published

Xbox players have discovered they can run PS2 games on the new consoles with emulators.

Shortly after the release of the Xbox series S and X, players have discovered that using the developer mode on the new Xbox game consoles opens a whole new world of variety for games.

In a video posted by YouTuber “Modern Vintage Gamer” he showcases the retroarch emulator being used on Xbox hardware, which allows PS2 ROMS to run.

Since the software for the console is fairly new, Modern Vintage Gamer ran into a few hitches when setting up the retroarch emulator, and almost completely gave up. It took a few work arounds, but once he got it up and running, the emulator showed promise.

Some games like Silent Hill 2 and Maximo ran great, with only minor lag and frame rate dips, while titles like Gran Turismo 2 were almost unplayable with low frame rates and audio hitching.

Overall, many of the titles looked beautiful on modern hardware. Since the Xbox Series S and X are newer systems, this is a great foundation for the emulator to build from and further optimize for the future.

Silent Hill 2 – PS2

Since Modern Vintage Gamer tested the games on the weaker Xbox Series S, its still possible the Xbox Series X would have ran the games a bit better, but its unlikely games that were unplayable would be any better on the more powerful console due the optimization of the retroarch emulator.

This very well could be the beginning of a future of several emulators coming to the Xbox for various consoles.

The emulator is only available for use in developer mode for Xbox, which costs $20 to unlock. While in developer mode, you will not be able to use the online features of the console. It might be possible to run this emulator in the retail mode for the Xbox, but Modern Vintage Gamer warns the legality of this is not clear.

How to unlock Diamond rocket launchers easily in Black Ops Cold War

Here’s how to unlock Diamond for the launchers in Black Ops Cold War.

How to unlock Diamond camo for launchers fast in Black Ops Cold War.

Black Ops Cold War has a grilling camo grind for the new Dark Matter Ultra mastery camo for multiplayer. Out of all of the weapon classes, the launchers are notorious in all Call of Duty titles for being the toughest of the bunch.

It’s a long process but its do-able. In Modern Warfare there was a total of four launchers, and now in Black Ops Cold War, there’s only two to do.

In the video below, YouTuber “PrimitiveAK” explains the most efficient way to unlock the Diamond camo for launchers.

Best Ways To Unlock All Camos

  • Spray- Get 50 kills. PrimitiveAK pointed out that assists count as well.
  • Stripes – Destroy 50 equipment, scorestreaks or vehicles. Run the engineer perk to highlight all streaks and equipment, this helps immensely.
  • Classic – Get three kills without dying 20 times with all kills coming from the launcher. Hardcore Nuketown is recommended for this challenge. Makes the challenge much easier.
  • Geometric – Destroy 50 ground-based streaks in multiplayer. Run an engineer and play combined arms/dirty bomb and destroy as many streaks and vehicles. Sentry guns count.
  • Flora – Destroy 50 aerial streaks or vehicles. Cigma is very easy to do, but for the RPG you need to target care package helicopters. UAV’s are very hard to do. Attack helicopters are also do-able. We don’t recommend going after UAV’s with the RPG.
  • Science – Destroy three enemy vehicles or scorestreaks in a game 10 times. Run Combined Arms for this challenge.
  • Psychadelic – Kill two or more enemies rapidly 25 times in multiplayer. Get multikills with launchers. Play hardcore Nuketown. Prefire angles and wait for enemies to group up. You can reload and quickly kill another enemy for the challenge to still count.

The process for rocket launchers is long and you most likely will get frustrated several times. Expect to be in for the long haul if you’re going for DM Ultra.
