Everything We Know About Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Multiplayer
Treyarch released a full-length trailer Call of Duty: Black Ops 4’s multiplayer mode. In the trailer, near-future combat is shown befitting of where Black Ops 4 fits in with the rest of the series (set between the events of Black Ops 2 and Black Ops 3). While there will be futuristic technology available, it apparently won’t go as far as robot soldiers or thruster jumping.
According to Treyarch, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4’s multiplayer will be return to “boots on the ground” action. Meanwhile, there are a host of similarities between Black Ops 4’s multiplayer and Black Ops 3 such as the return of Specialists like Seraph, Ruin, and Firebrack, all of whom have been “totally reimagined” with new abilities.
These old Specialists will be joined by a few new ones like Crash, a medic class soldier with healing abilities; Torque, a master at disrupting combat flow who uses razor wire and improvised cover; and Recon, can fire sensor darts which clears new “fog of war” on minimap.
Other new tweaks include weapons being given its own set of attachments, predictive recoil patterns to ensure they fire the same way each and every time you use them, and a new “guns up” approach to weapons. With guns up, guns will always be at the ready whenever players throw grenades, call scorestreaks, or vault over objects.
Lastly, a new competitive mode is being added to Black Ops 4 multiplayer called Blackout. In Blackout, players will take part in a battle royale that features weapons, characters, vehicles, and locations from the entire Black Ops franchise on a single map. According to Treyarch, Blackout is over a thousand times larger than a standard Call of Duty multiplayer map.
