Black Ops 2 Leaked Multiplayer Perks
My son was born November 16, 2010. About a week before he came into the world, I stood in line at my local Wal-Mart for over an hour, feeling like I was going to explode, hoping he would wait just a couple more hours to make his grand entrance into the world just so I could get my hands on that shiny, cellophane-coated box containing Black Ops. Last year with the release of MW3, my husband and I dropped our son off at his grandparent’s house, stood in front of a GameStop for almost two hours, watching people yell at one another and almost getting into fisticuffs (yes, I said fisticuffs), to get our copy. That being said, short of Armageddon, I don’t think there’s anything that could really stop me from being in line on November 13, 2012 for the release of Black Ops 2. Some people drop their kids off at the Grandparent’s house so they can go out with friends, get hammered, or just have some “alone” time. We do it for the same reasons, but mostly because our Friday nights consist of gaming. And drinking. But mostly gaming.
The more I research Black Ops 2, the more I’m beginning to think it’s looking better and better than I had originally thought. One of the most popular series of games and arguably best Xbox 360 shooter and PS3 shooters of all time is just a hundred days away. An alleged ‘leaked multiplayer perks’ list has been flooding my Facebook page and several internet sites, and it appears that Treyarch has heard some of the community’s complaints, and is responding to them loud and clear.
The game will have two settings. One is going to be the Cold War of the 1980’s, and the other is going to be a futuristic-style ‘Cold War,’ set in the year 2025. One can only assume that the multiplayer is going to be the one set in the future, since it was released a month or so ago that the Blops 2 favorite—Nuketown–was coming back, and was going to be “futuristic.”
If the lists I am seeing are correct (which we won’t know for sure until the release date inches forward), as well as the regular perks that, with use, unlock to pro, there will also be an ‘elite’ perk option (view the list here http://community.callofduty.com/thread/200435238 ). Players who purchase Elite will be able to utilize several perks that others in multiplayer mode cannot. I have a feeling this is going to cause a little controversy in the game, as there are already numerous people complaining about how this is going to yield unfair advantages to the Elite. As if Call of Duty didn’t have enough whining haters already, I can just see this adding fuel to an ever-growing fire. My suggestion, work a few hours of overtime, and save up for Elite. It pays for itself in just a few months if you’re an active Duty-er who will end up purchasing the DLC anyway, and is well worth the investment if you plan on playing the game on the regular.
Another thing mentioned in the list, is that it will no longer take only one knife to kill an enemy, although with the ballistic knife and tomahawk, it will still only take one good shot to do the job. Hopefully, this will help quell some raging from people who don’t like run-and-knifers. The list states that it will take anywhere from two to four swipes with your knife to take down your opponent, depending on the loadout and perks you have selected. I do have to say that it does seem a little illogical to have three bullets to the chest NOT kill a person, but one knife to the foot does them in. It appears, all in all, that Treyarch seems to be stepping up the plate, answering consumer’s concerns and complaints, although we all know there are still going to be haters out there.
