‘Vision Pulse’ made its debut in Call of Duty: Black Ops 3, and has become one of the more popular in-game Specialists.
However, Black Ops 4 saw a major adjustment in how Vision Pulse is used, with players needing to bring up a pair of goggles in order to view enemies.
Enemy players now only show up for a brief moment of time while the goggles are in use in BO4, compared to being fully highlighted throughout the duration of the Specialist in BO3.
Yet when enemies are not highlighted in the new version of Vision Pulse, the entire screen turns gray while peering through the goggles.
This can make it tough to see non-highlighted enemies, and some believe it puts Vision Pulse users at a harsh disadvantage.
Reddit user ‘Hyperfolk’ suggested that the best way to combat the disadvantage would be to have the pulsating effect paired with a color screen, much like how it works for Recon’s teammates.
Others have argued against a change to Vision Pulse, stating that the point of such a disadvantage is to ensure balance between Specialists.
At the time of writing, it is unknown if Treyarch plans to make any adjustments to Recon’s Vision Pulse in Black Ops 4.
Should such a change be implemented? Let us know in the comments below!
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.
