In a response to a Reddit post, a Treyarch developer has shed some new information on Armor, and its effect in game. Many fans have been complaining about Armor being over-powered, and Treyarch has acknowledged they are monitoring all of the data.
Now, on Reddit, Treyarch states that they have Armor-specific updates planned for Weekend 2 of the beta. Treyarch has also clarified that Armor only requires, in majority of cases in-action, 1 extra bullet to kill versus no Armor. In addition, Armor does not change the headshot damage values. And, if the armor is depleted, and player regenerates health, the armor does not regenerate for that life.
We definitely hear the feedback and are monitoring this issue closely. We’re also working on some Armor-specific updates that you can expect for the update on weekend 2. I just wanted to clarify a point of information that you stated about Armor requiring “3-5” bullets extra. Currently Armor only increases hits to kill by a single bullet. The only exception to this is farthest-range SMG damage, which at the longest ranges may take up to 2 extra bullets to kill. But those are somewhat rare. In the vast majority of cases it only soaks up 1 hits-to-kill worth, and it does not protect against headshots at all. Also, that 1 bullet worth of protection does not regenerate once depleted, which is a major differentiator from past mechanics such as Juggernaut.
This information is just to be transparent about how Armor is currently functioning. It doesn’t mean we don’t take this issue seriously – it’s one of our top combat gameplay concerns and you will see some action soon. Thanks and please enjoy the Beta and keep the feedback coming! BTW some of those other Gears are pretty good too!
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.
