• RUMOR: Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 Multiplayer Details Leaked

      Death, taxes and a new Call of Duty in November. They're all guarantees. While Black Ops 2 has not been announced or confirmed by Activision developer Treyarch, the minds behind 2010's Call of Duty: Black Ops, let's be serious for a second here. We all know it's coming. Whether it's called "Black Ops 2" or not is irrelevant. We'll see a new Call of Duty this November.

      Now that that's out of the way, we have the first set of 'leaked' information about the game's multiplayer, courtesy of MP1st.com. There's nothing to confirm or deny any of this information as true, so it has to be considered a rumor as of right now.

      Among these rumors are a new game mode entitled 'Escort,' the return of MW3 modes 'Drop Zone' and 'Kill Confirmed' and -- wait for it -- the fact that 'Last Stand/Final Stand' will NOT return. Let's hope the latter is true, at least.

      Here's the list of rumors in its entirety:

      Game Modes

      Escort, a new game mode
      > Similar to Search and Destroy however a live player must be escorted to one of three areas (or two depending on the map) without being killed.
      >The match will have rounds, consisting of one life only.
      Drop Zone and Kill Confirmed will return
      Team Defender and Infected will not return


      Will follow from Modern Warfare 3’s system

      Larger emphasis on objectives
      > A bomb plant is worth 2 points
      > A neutral flag is worth 1, however an enemy flag is worth 2
      > A flag assist capture is worth 1, a capture is worth 2

      The Specialist Pointstreak has be modified
      > 2 kills now gets you 1 perk
      > The 4th kill gets you 2 more perks
      > The 6th kill gets you 3 more perks
      > The 8th Kill gets you 4 more perks
      > You do not get every perk when you reach 8 kills
      > Perks only become “Pro” when you have them Pro
      > RC XD will not return

      Heat vision
      > Is a new Pointstreak reward
      > When you get the required points, you can activate this Pointstreak and your player pulls out a scope and attaches it to your weapon.
      > This scopes main advantage is it’s ability to detect enemies through most walls.
      > Note, the scope can only be attached to primaries not including shotguns

      Item Packages
      > Requires 5 points
      > Fall along side care packages and air drop traps.
      > Features a list of package items only
      > Including ammo, mini gun, grenade launcher, rocket launcher, and body armor


      There will be 15 prestiges
      There will be 50 ranks
      Every two prestiges there is a 5 rank increase
      The final prestige has 90 levels

      ELITE 2.0

      ELITE is being fully incorporated into Black Ops 2
      Combat record has been modified and re-named as ELITE Stats
      There will be a specific lobby for clan matches (new way of leveling clans)
      Clan Tournaments can now be implemented


      No MOAB or Nuke
      No last stand
      No death streaks
      No flame thrower attachment

      Map Design

      Map design and size will be following Black Ops not Modern Warfare 3

      Sniper Rifles

      Improved sniper rifle usage.
      No aim assist for any sniper rifle.
      Less sway


      No longer just perk 1 chooses the players appearance
      Appearance is a combination of all perks and type of Pointstreak being used.


      Larger emphasis on hardcore than ever before
      No grenade launchers
      Only vehicle guided rocket launchers permitted
      Respawn timings decreased (for most modes)
      1 bullet in the foot will no longer kill a person, a head or chest shot is usually required.
      A person will now bleed out if severely injured.

      Perk System 2.0

      The Perk Pro system has been upgraded
      There is now 2 options a perk can advance to.
      Both require different challenges to unlock
      Once the desired Pro version is unlocked, the player can select that as their “Perk Pro”.
      Once selected, the only way to choose the other option is by entering prestige mode.
      For example Perk slot 1 has the perk called Speed
      Speed – Reduces the time taken to aim down the sight
      > Pro I – Swaps weapons faster
      > Pro II – Throws equipment faster

      Combat Training

      Will be returning with vast improvements.
      Difficulty is no longer based on how long the bots take to start shooting.
      Bots now have an advance AI system
      Similar to the behavior seen in the MW3 Spec Ops survival

      Are you excited for yet another Call of Duty this fall?

        *Gasp* A new Call of Duty game! This is almost as shocking as the new madden game, or a new assassin's creed game...
