Although Black Ops 2 hasn’t received an official announcement yet, I’m sure we can all safely assume that it will be hitting story shelves toward the end of the year, continuing the annual Call of Duty trend. Now, we have some information that, although unofficial and possibly inaccurate, has appeared in threads in both Black Ops’ and Activision’s forums.
The lengthy list of leaked details reveals a planned release date of November 6th as well as a plethora of multiplayer information. Remember, none of this has been confirmed, but so far it hasn’t been reported as fake by the publisher or developer (and they were quick to remove both threads without saying anything).
Here’s what was revealed in the original post:
Leaked Black Ops 2 Multiplayer Information
This year, Call of Duty will return with it’s ninth installment with Black Ops 2. As expected it will be following Treyarch’s previous game Black Ops. It’s release date is set for the 6th of November.
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 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 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 and size will be following Black Ops not Modern Warfare 3
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
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
So, there you have it; a list of possibly true or fake information. None of it seems too far-fetched, but it should still be taken with a grain of salt. I’m sure Activision will be much more talkative regarding this subject come E3.
