Tips on how to best use Crash in Black Ops 4 Multiplayer



Crash is a specialist who brings team wide assistance and requires deft timing to play correctly.

The specialist who goes by the codename of Crash carries a relatively simple kit: A TAK-5 boost which provides an instant heal to all teammates to 200 health and an Assault Pack which provides ammo which scores additional points on kills.

Here, we will look over the best ways to use these abilities.

Specialist Ability: TAK-5

The TAK-5 provides a team-wide overheal to 200 health, but the effect is much less impactful than other Specialists if used at the wrong time. Many other specialists can afford a small error in timing, but for Crash, such a thing can ruin the whole show.

To ensure you get the most out of your TAK-5 boost, you must think about both team positioning and objective locations. Once you acquire the TAK-5 and are ready to use it, look at the mini-map to see where your teammates are. If they are dead or away from the fight, wait to pop the boost.

Your best bet for a successful TAK-5 use comes when the majority of your team is together. A stacked team of 200 health players becomes a hassle to shred through and gives you a massive advantage in teamfights. Additionally, informing teammates through in-game voice chat of your intentions can help maximize the gains.

If needed, the TAK-5 boost can also be used to break through Firebreak’s Reactor Core as it heals burns.

Special Issue Equipment: Assault Pack

The Assault Pack is among the least lethal equipment options in the game. It provides additional ammo supplies to you and your teammates. The ammo gives a small +25 point boost for every EKIA. The ammo pack can be destroyed by enemies.

For optimal usage, the pack should be place within your team’s spawn. The location should provide ample cover for the pack as enemy fire can quickly destroy it. The small boost in points may not be immediately eye-popping, but it can do wonders for low-tier scorestreaks.

The pack can also be used in the middle of combat if you see that teammates are running low on ammo. This generally requires voice communication, but if you see a teammate who is doing well in need of extra mags, don’t hesitate to throw them a lifeline. Chances are they are close to a scorestreak and looking desperately for a downed enemy’s weapon.

We hope this simple tips will help you use Crash to maximum effect. As always, don’t be afraid to experiment a bit with Specialist usage in public matches. Who knows? Maybe you will find the new, best way to use a certain item and create a whole new meta.

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.
