Call of Duty: Black Ops 2

post #1 of 4670
Thread Starter 
Let's get this started...



Leaked Black Ops 2 Multiplayer Information
Quote:


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

Pointstreaks

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
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

Prestiges

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

Removed

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

Customization

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

Hardcore

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

Sounds reasonable enough, although its so far away it's not even worth speculating what is and isn't true, cause plenty of it is bound to change.

The main thing I want from them is to retain the assault/support/specialist separation of streaks. And not to have all the weapons feel exactly the same.

No Last Stand and No Aim Assist for sniping is such an epic win for this game if it is true.

Fully incorporated Elite?
say good bye to one of the best things treyarch provided, which was all the awesome in game stats available. Doesn't surprise me, but still very disappointing.

+1
You knew it was coming though with Craptivision looking for more ways to milk COD fans for every effing dime. Would be nice though if at least for dom we still got to see caps, defends, and k/d... fingers crossed.

That could just as easily be read to mean the opposite, pulling in everything from elite in game and not as a separate app. That's what fully integrated means to me at least.

I'm rooting for you to be right because Elite as implemented by Sledgehammer is a colossal failure.

That it most certainly is. It's just awful right now...although I still like the idea of it and what it could become if done right.

Also on my wish list...that it actually works the first month.

I hope to see a good product be turned out for BO2.....

Cant wait for 360 version

And that's why I think this "leak" is full of crap. Look at the list. It's pretty much EVERYTHING that gamers want from the next CoD. Sure, some of it will be in there, but this list just seems too perfect.

That was the first thing I thought when I read it too. But....it was kind of the same way with blops and mw3. I'm not putting any real weight on this specific list, but I do expect a lot of these things to happen.

Pretty sure I read somewhere that Zombies had been strongly hinted at. Waste of development time as far as I'm concerned.

From a Twitter post from Modern Warfare 3@MW3Updates

New Call of Duty could be revealed May 2, according to a leaked poster by Kotaku.

Given how everything leaks a week in advance nowadays, we should know all about it by next week.

Apparently the morse code on callofduty.com translates to Black Ops 2. So lame compared to the hoops people had to jump through to solve fez.

Anyways, teaser trailer showing snippets of campaign in a few days. Then another five months until we actually learn anything about the part of the game we actually care about.
post #20 of 4670
I look forward to its sales being lower than its two predecessors a la Modern Warfare 3 vs. Modern Warfare 2 and Black Ops. I've also read that online playing stats are lower than the previous two as well.

Franchise fatigue similar to the yearly plastic instrument games and the Hawk may finally be setting in, thank goodness.
post #21 of 4670
Blops 2 looks like it might be taking place in near future....

This better be true!

Another TV screen on Callofduty.com now says "TACITUS".

The connection there is supposedly:

Quote:


Tacitus was a Roman senator and historian who wrote about, among many, many other things, an eclipse. Eclipse is a key word that seems to keep popping up around the marketing for this game. According to NASA, one of the five solar eclipses hitting this year will be on Nov. 13 of this year, one of the rumored release dates for the next game.

Sounds plausible because Nov 13th is a tuesday, and up until a week ago I'd have pointed out Nov 6th as the day, except that Halo 4 comes out that day. There is NO WAY halo and cod both come out on the same day. I'd sooner believe tupac is still alive. So regardless of this tacitus nonsense....its the 13th for sure.

A supposed screenshot of the quad rotor. I guess it's the new RC-XD.

http://t.co/4DdCf5yv

This is definitely some future soldier ****, so it's all but certain blops 2 is taking place in the 2020s.

Definitely like where this is headed. Way, way better than retreading the cold war.
post #25 of 4670
That's assuming the entire game takes place in that time frame.

True....gonna be really disappointed now if it doesn't though.

I question why they even bother with all this secrecy and buildup nonsense when they do something like that. It never, ever stays secret.

Anyways....that font sure looks like some future ****.
post #29 of 4670
Some leaked screenshots:

Future **** confirmed. Definitely gives them the opportunity to be more imaginative than if they just stuck with the cold war. Hopefully they come up with some cool stuff....starting off on the right foot.

I hope they're not real screen shots. Graphics look horrible. Guess the rumors of new graphics engine was a rumor then.
