Weapons receive massive update and focus in Black Ops 4

Published

Treyarch is focused on bringing a massive update to their approach to weapons in Call of Duty in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4.

Treyarch says Black Ops 4 features more improvements to guns and their mechanics than all Black Ops games combined. There’s new improvements to how weapons feel and react; a focus on thinking of weapons almost like a character in the game itself.

One of the big changes with weapons is that attachments are now unique to each weapon – not the weapon class. Previously, each weapon class had a set of attachments shared across all the weapons in the class. In Black Ops 4, each weapon has its own set of attachment to suit the weapon – so not all weapons in a certain class will have the same attachment options available.

Weapons now have 3D tracers, which allows you to see where the bullets come from. While playing the game, you will see the bullet trace as it comes to you, so you get a better idea of where you were getting shot from. There is new animations and controller rumbles in the game to better fit every weapon.

For the first time in Call of Duty’s history, Treyarch is introducing true predicted recoil pattern – a new recoil system in the game. Each gun has its own gameplay and personality. Treyarch says there is a new uniqueness as to how a gun tugs back to the center as you keep firing it in game.

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.
