Tips & tricks to help you dominate in Black Ops 4 Domination

Published

on

This short guide covers some essential points to help secure wins in Domination.

Domination consists of three stationary capture flags/zones spread out over the map. Two of these flags (A & C) appear near each of the initial spawn points and the B flag generally appears in between them in mid-map. You already knew all this, but might not be consistently winning in Domination. We seek solve that problem by giving you some quick tips to get you on track.

For ease of reading, we’ll be splitting the tips into three sections: map control, triple capture, and purposeful spawn flipping.

Map Control

In Black Ops 4 Domination, map control is a difficult balancing act due to spawn logic. In order to maintain control of a 2-flag hold, you will need to be careful of team positions. Spawns flip easily in BO4 Domination, so be sure to never push past more than 70% of the map.

Another way to ensure spawns remain steady is to never aim directly into the enemy spawns. Wait for angled approaches inside or around the corner from the enemy spawn. The game will detect if you are looking at enemy spawns and flip them automatically.

In terms of other map controls tips, don’t spread out too far from your teammates. While it may be a first thought to hold all three lanes of a map, rethink that. It is far better to stay as a fluid pack towards the middle of the map with players ready to cover flanks whenever needed. Use UAVs and sound to detect enemies on flanking routes and respond.

Triple Capture

Sometimes, you will go down by so many points in Domination that you cannot win even if you hold two flags all the way to the end of the match. This is bound to happen even to the best among us from time to time. However, in Domination, comebacks are always possible due to triple capping.

Trip-capping in Black Ops 4 is quite an ordeal due to the spawn mechanics explained above. When forced to go for a triple cap, keep these things in mind.

Spawns will constantly flip on most maps when you are attempting to hold a triple capture. The game will attempt to find openings in your team’s sightlines for enemies to spawn. This means that your team must spread out over the the A & C flags.

Vice-versa, if you are getting triple capped, use the split-spawning to your advantage. The continuous spawn reversals will throw most players off and allow you to catch players off-guard. When trip-capped, don’t be afraid to push out hard & fast to recapture the nearest base flag as the enemy team will spread over a lot of ground.

Purposeful Spawn Flipping

Sometimes, you will want to purposefully flip the spawns. This may be due to simple boredom with a weaker enemy or the want to play on the stronger side of the map. Either way, there is a proper way to do so.

Timing is key. Aim to spawn flip when your team has just killed a few members of the enemy team. This make the remaining enemies easy targets on your spawn push. If you flip fast enough, the first enemies dead may already spawn out.

After you have successfully killed the enemies and flipped the spawns, capture the base flag. Only one person should stay to capture this flag. Send everyone else back to the B flag to cover the counter-attack. If done right, you will secure yourself a successful spawn flip, a better map side, and probably a few streaks as well.

We hope these tips will help you decimate the competition in Domination. You can find more tips, guides, and news on Twitter at @Charlieintel.

Call of Duty players want a Battlefield Portal inspired mode in the future

After FPS fans were blown away by Battlefield Portal’s reveal, Call of Duty fans want to see a similar mode in the future.

Battlefield Portal and Modern Warfare 2

Battlefield 2042’s REDACTED mode was finally announced at EA Play: Battlefield Portal. This is a hub for content from previous Battlefield games, and Call of Duty players want to see a similar mode in the future.

Like Battlefield, Call of Duty has depicted various theatres of war over the years, both real and fictional. Although Battlefield 2042 is set in the near future, as a throwback for long-time fans of the franchise, they’ve included Battlefield Portal.

This brings weapons, maps, vehicles, and more from Battlefield 1942, Bad Company 2, and Battlefield 3 into one, ultimate sandbox experience. Impressed with the new mode, Call of Duty fans have been asking for a similar experience.

Battlefield Portal vehicles

Call of Duty fans have been desperate for remasters of their favorite games from the franchise, with Modern Warfare 2’s multiplayer being the most prominent. Black Ops Cold War is chock-full of maps from Black Ops 2, but players still want to see more content from the games they grew up with.

Battlefield 2042 found the solution to this with their new Portal mode. With access to a ton of content from previous Battlefield games, players can create almost any custom game mode they can dream up.

“And that’s how you incorporate remastered content into your game,” said renowned industry insider Tom Henderson after seeing the reveal. He followed this by theorizing that Call of Duty will create something similar in the “next 5 years.”

His theory was met with resounding excitement, with many Call of Duty players wanting to see their favorite multiplayer and Zombies experiences return in the same way.

Battlefield Portal “truly could be the next BIG THING for creators,” said popular YouTuber Chaosxsilencer. “Imagine a Call of Duty Portal with BO2, BO3, WaW, MW2, MW3 assets all usable and customizable.”

“The custom game options available with #BATTLEFIELD2042 and the Battlefield Portal are amazing. So many options and ways to be creative and have fun,” said Call of Duty news account ModernWarzone. “@RavenSoftware we need things like this in Warzone, especially with Battlefield announcing this today.”

With how extensive of a backlog Call of Duty has, it’s very likely that Activision will take inspiration from Battlefield’s exciting new mode – and the demand for it is certainly there.

If you can’t wait to play Battlefield 2042, you can check out how to get access to the Open Beta in September.

Zombies World Record beaten after nearly 300 hours of Call of Duty: Black Ops 3

It took one Twitch streamer nearly 300 hours of gameplay to beat the World Record for Black Ops 3’s Nacht Der Untoten Zombies.

black ops 3 nacht der untoten

One player has done the unthinkable and beaten the Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Nacht Der Untoten Zombies World Record by reaching round 255.

Zombies has a storied history dating all the way back to 2008 when Call of Duty: World at War came bundled with a bonus mini-game called ‘Nacht der Untoten.’ The legendary Nazi Zombies mode would go on to reach ridiculous levels of popularity to the point that Treyarch had to make extra Zombies maps.

Since then, virtually every single CoD title has included new versions and variations of the Zombies formula. Black Ops Cold War is currently enjoying the launch of Mauer Der Toten, the freshest Zombies experience.

However, one Twitch streamer has overlooked modern Zombies in favor of a previous game – Black Ops 3. After 20 days of playing the same game of Nacht Der Untoten on and off, a new World Record was set.

The feat was accomplished by CoD Zombies Twitch streamer TomPhantasy as he smashed the previous record by a staggering 40 rounds to reach Round 255.

Beginning his run on July 2, he spent the next 20 days clocking up nearly 300 hours of game time to obliterate the previous Nacht Der Untoten record.

Remarkably, he was only downed twice, and they both came once he’d surpassed the record figure anyway.

The final seconds of the footage are of the streamer clearing up the last few dregs of Zombies until the round icon in the bottom-left changes to 255.

This absolutely smashes the previous record of 216 rounds set by user Chihiro-516, and may never be beaten.

Dexerto was even able to secure an exclusive word with the streamer to get more reaction to his feat: “The Zombies community has been supporting me for months when I have been attempting this record through the highs and lows,” he said.

He continued: “I knew I had to keep going, because after 24.8 days the game freezes, This meant I had to play 13+ hours per day for those 25 days.”

Massive congratulations need to go to the player who was able to gut his way through an arduous three weeks of Zombies. With Mauer Der Toten very much the new Zombies craze, we wonder if he will one day attempt to set the record for it.
