This year, Call of Duty will return with its ninth instalment with Black Ops 2. As expected it will be following Treyarch’s previous game Black Ops. Its release date is set for the 6th of November.
Escort will be 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
Will follow from Modern Warfare 3’s system, with a 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, and the 8th Kill gets you 4 more perks. You do not
get every perk when you reach 8 kills.
The 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 require 5 points. It's like a care package, only it can include ammo, a mini gun, a grenade launcher, a rocket launcher, and body armor instead of Pointstreaks.
There will be 15 prestiges and 50 ranks. Every two prestiges there is a 5 rank increase, with the final prestige having 90 levels.
No MOAB or Nuke, no Last Stand, no Death Streaks, and no Flamethrower 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, and less sway.
Perk 1 isn't the only perk that effects your appearance, all 3 perks and the Pointstreak system you use will effect it.
Perk System 2.0
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 “Pro Perk”. 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 sights. Pro I – Swaps weapons faster
Pro II – Throws equipment faster
