“Headshots for Camo doesn’t work” in Blackout says Treyarch Design Director.
With the 31 January Game Settings Update for Black Ops 4, players can finally unlock exclusive camos for Blackout as well as Mastery camos for their guns.
The new camo system is unlike any we have seen in other game modes, and revolves around collecting “Paint Cans” in-game. After you collect a certain amount of Paint Cans, you can redeem them for camos in the Armory.
Whereas Multiplayer and Zombies camos require kills or headshots with a a gun to unlock that guns camo, not a single bullet needs to be fired to unlock Blackout camos.
While some players believe that because of this change, skill is no longer a requirement to earn camos, David Vonderhaar, Studio Design Director as Treyarch, thinks differently.
” In my opinion, headshots for Camo doesn’t work when you don’t have CaC/loadouts and respawns. You would be so mad at me right now if you can’t find a gun whose Challenges you were trying to complete. Find gun. Dead. The. Grind. Torture.” He posts on Twitter.
“The idea that Challenges drive you to use other weapons you may not typically use is great feedback. However, we don’t need to use Camo to do that. “

He goes on to tweet that ” We don’t need to use Camo unlocks to do this. Ambush is an example. It turned us into Snipers, Knifers, and lovers of Brawler.”
This weekend, between 1 Feb and 4 Feb, all platforms will receive 2X Merits in Blackout.
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.
