    (Black Ops 4, Zombies, PS4) I've noticed a scary trend in gaming over the last decade... First time I noticed this trend was when I couldn't play the Battlefield (3 or 4, can't remember) SINGLE PLAYER campaign because I wasn't connected to EA servers... Unfortunetly, it seems Activision has followed the trend. I really wish we could play zombies single player while offline and still earn and unlock things, and progress in levels. I can't imagine any reason why the game can't, at the very least, store our progress from offline games to be uploaded later when we connect! I got the game a few months after launch, so it seems I was spared the worst of the bugs and glitches. (i've only ever "blue screened" once since buying the game on Christmas) but I fear what may eventually happen: I am in round 65, i've maxed out many weapons and gotten thousands of headshots...suddenly I see: "Internet Connection Lost" some potential issue with Activision, PSN, or simply my own WIFI or electricity! What happens then? Do I just lose my hours of work from my current game?? This has not happened so far, but I chalk that up to "lucky me..."

    Hey all! I'm trying to suss out the values of grenades and I would welcome any help. I've been doing some testing, but I'm usually dead before 40 on normal, so I don't know the staying power of some of these equipment. I'm also not in love with bo4 zombies, so I'm not doing as many tests or games as I normally would. Frag: What round will it start making crawlers? What round does it stop making crawlers? I really have not used this much and would welcome any knowledge of them. Wraith Fire: This seems to be the community favorite. 2 uses, it lasts a while, but by 20-something it is weakening zombies more than killing them. But Instakill + WF is always a win. A solid choice. Equip Mint can combo with it. Sentry Gun: 1 use, slow recharge. First impression is that it is poo. However, when using it while grouping them up, I quickly hit 100 kills with it, then 250, then 500. So this thing is actually a sleeper beast. Mid 30s, it clears the room. It only lasts 10-15 seconds and is a pain to run ahead of the train and set down, but once using it is mastered, this kicks more ass than it seems. What round does it become junk? Does it start making crawlers or anything stupid like that? Acid Grenade: 3 uses, very slow recharge. I thought these might be a hidden gem, but mostly they stick to zombies that I did not intend to hit, and damage me and my shield. The recharge is so slow that I'll just toss 2, then throw 1 whenever I have 2. Even Equip Mint can't save this in my opinion. Am I missing some great potential? Is it good in high rounds? I'll take facts or opinions. Please and thanks. Happy gaming!

    For people that can't watch/have not seen the stream: - They talked about the new Gauntlet: Death-Con Five for Classified. Blood of the Dead "Hellcatraz" Gauntlet coming next month. - DLC 2 Coming next month, it is a Chaos map set in Delphi called Ancient Evil (Uninspired much?) EDIT: Story is that when the Chaos crew arrive, a Sentinel Trial is already in action and has been going for a very long time. Jason and Craig mention that there are people still running around that started this trial on the map. - Ancient Evil will be the last Chaos map "This season". Jason confirmed that this season will be two Chaos maps and two Aether maps, and that there will be a season 2 (Presumably why the next Call of Duty does not have Blackout or Zombies, they will put out a second season for this game.) This season 2 will also have two Chaos and two Aether maps. So DLC 3 will be Aether. - They talked about the new perk Ethereal Razor, which enhances melee damage and replenishes health on hit. There was a little gameplay with it. - You can earn an extra Black Market Tier Skip through the daily callings. - At the end they showed a Director's Cut trailer for Dead of the Night. It confirms the theory that the reason Godfrey turned evil was because, like Bruno, he was killed and then revived by the Scepter of Ra. Also for other Zombies-related news in Blackout: - Misty, Brutus, and other zombie skins coming to Blackout. We should be seeing Victis again soon... - Part of Buried has been added under the western Ghost Town. - There was a little tease at the end of the Operation trailer that is something Alcatraz related. It showed some characters dropping in to Alcatraz and then an Alcatraz zombie. This could be number of things. It could be a new Blackout mode that takes place at night, and is maybe more zombies-centric? It could be a new zombies mode like Grief where you start out by dropping into Blood of the Dead like in Blackout (Probably not.)

    I'm posting my thoughts on running trains and opening the map. But, I suck at bo4, so I'd welcome any advice or better training strategies, if anyone has anything to offer. One can easily run the whole ship, but by playing it safe, one uses lots of ammo to kill 1 or a few zombies, so I usually play it up close and hectic and die mid 30s rounds while trying to merc whole crowds similar to the older zombie games played. (I usually run counter-clockwise due to giant hands and small controllers. It's just easier for me to push the 2 tiny sticks together). Stokers can fire homing missiles through any basic white walls of the ship (at least on xb1). The missiles seem to be stopped by any other surface, like pictures, railings, trim, any brown walls, et cetera. ####### Forecastle: I keep the 2 lower doors closed (to State Rooms). I open State Rooms from the Grand Staircase (only for the Shield Part), behind the Swordfish wallbuy. This also opens Millionaire Suites to State Rooms, 1 level down on the Staircase. With those Forecastle-to-State Rooms doors closed, Forecastle is fairly easy to run. Basically I group them up on the Perk deck, often going under the Starboard side steps (near State Rooms door), then I run up the other Starboard steps to the front of Forecastle, and wreck them on the steps as they group up to come up. I cross the top, and jump over the zombies coming up the other steps by the perk. Repeat as needed. ####### Dining Hall and Grand Staircase: I open from Grand Staircase to Dining Hall, and I leave the Galley steps closed (I'm not sure that that part matters). I group them in Dining Hall, then I enter the Staircase area and headshot at doorway, move around corner past Staircase (in front of steps), headshot more. Then I head towards Galley, headshot by perk. Repeat. This is fairly easy. (Stokers fire missiles through white central walls, be wary). ####### Poop Deck: After running several paths, I find the steps on either side of the Workbench to be fairly safe. I go up the starboard side, come down the port side (by Workbench). Then I'll either go across the lower deck of Poop Deck, or I'll cut into the top of Third Class Berths, and come back out heading to the starboard side steps again. I don't find the PaP area to be very safe, so I avoid that. (Stokers fire missiles through white walls of 3rd class berths, be wary). ####### Grand Staircase alone: Ive left the Dining Hall doors closed, and ran around (front and back) the Grand Staircase on this level. It is a bit hectic. Dining Hall alone: With the Grand Staircase door to Dining Hall closed, I have run the Dining hall with some success. Open from Galley/Mid Ships deck. Both of these are less than the Grand Staircase and Dining Hall together, in my opinion. ####### Mid Ships: This gets too hectic for me, I've not had much luck. Cargo Hold: This is terrifying. I can run real dangerous tight circles, but it is madness to attempt. This would probably be a decent 4 player camp spot as I think no zombs come from the portal side of the room. Engine Room: This stresses me out, yet does not seem to be too hard. The issue is turning to fire, only to catch on something or have a zombie appear behind you. I haven't given it too much attention because I don't feel comfortable with this. Camping near the portal (and PaP location) is not bad, with the portal as escape. Camping would be better with 2 or 4 players, so you can watch both sides. ####### Try these out, or offer me some pro tips, or just read and move on. Either way, happy gaming!

    A summary of the entire story! Note the word summary, as there are a lot of less important points I haven't included: the story of ''Red Riding Hood'', the history of Hyperborea and the Aryans and the backgrounds of the characters. Also note: Alot of text I have copy/pasted of CoD Wiki pages. All I did is pasting it all together and rewriting it a bit. Still: Enjoy!

    Phew...round 40 sounds high to me. My top rounds dont hardly get beyond round 30. I don't own BO4 so I cannot answer your questions. I'll post my own opinions about other grenades in the CoDZ series, however, and I would like to hear yours and other people's as well, if you would like to. One thing you must know is that I am absolutely no tactican/stategist. Frag grenade: the Classic. I use it to create crawlers, and throw them into tight hallways when filled with packs of zombies. Kinda the usual thing. S-mine: Very usefull! I buy them in the classic maps and plant them in the ground to create several 'escape routes' for when I get stuck on my training route. Monkey bomb: Most of the time I forget I own these wonderweapon after obtaining them from the Magic Box. If I remember in time, however, it is a very helpfull tool. Matryoshka doll: I absolutely love the idea behind this: A nationality-related special weapon only obtainable in one specific map: Ascension. The same would go for the Sickle, though that one can be found in Call of the Dead as well. The practical usage of the Matryoshka, however, isn't that great. Many times I manage it to commit unintended suicide with it. Still, a nice addition of Treyarch. Gersch device: Kinda the same with what I typed at 'Monkey bomb'. Q.E.D.: The funniest grenade in my opinion. And the most dangerous one... Many times I use this grenade I still discover new capabilities of it...many times causing my own death. EMP grenade: Or better known as the troll grenade in Grief. Don't use it alot in TranZit/survival mode, though I like it for not being overpowered. Quite the contradictionary, actually. Time bomb: The concept is good, though most times I use it I travel too much to the past so I don't really feel like continuing the game anymore. It really fits with the map, however.

    Let's say you get disconnected or crash at 52. All your progress is still safe from up to 50. Kinda like invisible checkpoints at least every 10 rounds. But I agree always online junk blows eggs.

    genius! I'll try this split screen idea. i think laser sight 2 keeps the hipfire crosshair from expanding, even while moving

    Off the top of my head... (go to custom mutations if needed, all attachments are unlocked). Take the SAUG and put on dual wield and lots of attachments will become unavailable. They go dark or "greyed out" as I called it. Edit: this doesn't necessarily mean that I'm right about the hades hipfire. Maybe split screen 2 hades with different attachments on each screen, and compare the hipfire "reticle" size between the 2? What does laser sight 2 add over laser sight 1? I'm curious...does it hold steadier as you move, or are these laser sights shrinking the hipfire "reticle"? I'd love to know for sure, myself.

    I noticed that as well, but have no explanation for it. Gotta say this new point system seems a bit dodgy.

    I think Black Ops 4 was probably the most blatantly broken CoD game at launch. That game was not at all ready for the October release date and it showed. Treyarch as a whole can be pretty sloppy on certain matters. I mean, it is an absolute joke that the Gorod Krovi Easter egg has still been completely broken for the last 2 years. As for Blackout itself, I don’t want play it often, but I do think it is a pretty solid entry into the Battle Royale genre. It’s a bit disappointing that Activision couldn’t compromise on perhaps making it free, because it looks like Apex Legends may be a bit of a problem for it now.

    In what regards? But you are right, the suply drop stream or whatever it is called is a joke and the Black Ops pass almost costing as much as a new game is dumb, but all things considered I happily pay more to get more and never expect to get new content for free. I just don't get it for the Black Ops season we had to pay 60 bucks for the game and additional 4x 15 bucks. It is just insane how map packs got sold for 15 $/€ and almost nobody seemed to care. Activision just handles this whole show in a really bad manner and they always have been doing that. I just think it is strange that it took folks almost 10 years to notice that.

    For background, my first CoD game was technically the original on my dad's PC back in the day, where I only played some of the campaign. Later when I had an Xbox 360 I rented CoD 2, 3, 4, and MW2 and played their campaigns some. But Black Ops was my first CoD online on Xbox Live. When I think of CoD I think of Treyarch. The aesthetic of their games and the gameplay are the pinnacle of the series in my opinion. To me Black Ops 4 is no exception, and I feel people are looking at this game with a modern perspective, while Activision controls development the same way they have been for 10 years. I can't fault people for feeling underwhelmed after this many entries in the series and no positive change in the business model. From the perspective of the gaming industry, Activision is way behind and is Anti-Consumer. EA is often hated for their business practices but people often neglect to mention the ways they have changed their games to match the backlash. Remember codes that came with the game that were required to play online? Remember paid DLC/Season Passes in Battlefield? Remember pay-to-win microtransactions in Battlefront 2? The difference between EA and Activision is that Activision has done nothing in response to criticism, but somehow EA gets put over the flames way more. I think too much blame is put on developers when just like a government there are layers to the management of a project, and crappy, anti-consumer business decisions almost always fall on the publisher for video games. Anyway, as for the three main developers, given what power they have, I think they all bring a unique flavor to Call of Duty. With the multitude of modes in Call of Duty from Campaign, Blackout, Zombies, Spec Ops, Extinction... it's kind of hard to compare all these games studios. Also one has to consider how many full Call of Duty games are under each developer's belt. Infinity Ward has 7, not including CoD4 Remastered. Treyarch has 7 if you include the spin off Big Red One. Sledgehammer has only 2, and showed up only recently. Is it fair to compare them all? Probably not. For me Treyarch Zombies has been and will always be my favorite. Setting aside nostalgia, it perfectly blends cheesiness with realism to create a unique universe and aesthetic not present in many video game properties. To me, IW Zombies felt like it tried to hard to go for cheese, but it lacked any substance. WW2 Zombies felt like a bore to me, and I hated the tone. Exo-Zombies actually comes pretty close to this, and I think given more time to flesh out the story and improve the irritating gameplay, Exo-Zombies could have rivaled Treyarch. But alas, we are probably never seeing Oz again... As I said, it feels unfair to compare zombies modes when Treyarch has had ten years to refine it and create good memories, while each other mode has only had one respective game. But speaking in terms of base gameplay mechanics, story, and aesthetics, Treyarch just takes the cake. Unlike a lot of people I liked the direction the Aether story went every step of the way, until about now... But I am giving Blundell the benefit of the doubt in saying I think he can end things in a satisfying way. The Storybook kind of depends on it. But if I had to rank the other modes, it would go something like this: 1. Exo-Zombies - A solid mode that actually made me buy the season pass for this game. This was the first non-Treyarch zombies so I had to give it a shot. I actually had some fun in this mode, and I think the first three maps are actually good, but Descent is pretty awful to play. I think Sledgehammer did not get enough time to make the gameplay less annoying and tedious and to better flesh out the story, as this was a late addition, the first DLC being having the first map. I wish they could have stuck with this story and world, but I understand why they didn't. 2. Extinction - Not really zombies, but fits a similar niche. I would have told you I hate this mode until about a year ago, and I still kind of never ever want to play it. It is just far too stressful for my taste unlike Black Ops and Black Ops 2 which were probably the most slowed down versions of zombies. But after watching a lot of Jr Rizzo videos on Extinction, I've come to appreciate its design a lot more, and I think I'm just bad at it. It's a truly unique Co-Op mode, and I think without Activison's meddling, IW would have stuck with this is as their Co-Op mode. 3. IW Zombies - I had an initial honeymoon period with Zombies in Spaceland where I really enjoyed it. I followed all the marketing and bought Infinite Warfare just for this mode. I liked the idea behind the map, being set in the 80s, with goofy characters as opposed to the somewhat seriousness of Treyarch. I thought it would be a great complement to the series, but after playing it for a month or so I became so incredibly bored and frustrated with the map. It really did not stay on my radar long, and I was never able to pin down why. I was so disillusioned by it, I never bought the season pass. The game still sits on my shelf, maybe I could revisit someday? 4. WW2 Zombies - I really hate this mode, and I feel bad that I do. I can see there was a lot of passion put into it, and a lot of people around here and Jr Rizzo seem to love it. But it is just so boring to me. The gameplay is pretty solid, but nothing special. The characters don't feel special. The locations the maps are set in don't feel special. It feels like a knock-off of zombies, thru and thru, without the personality of any of the above modes. I wish I felt the same way about this mode as many others do, but I just don't. I never bought the DLC, only watching videos on them, hoping I would see something interesting but I never did. The grey, washed out look only added to my lack of interest. I disliked this mode, the campaign, and multiplayer so much, that WW2 is the only CoD I traded in at the store. I never do that with games, because I might want to go back someday. But I felt no connection with this game. Am I biased? Yeah. But I'm willing to admit the faults in Treyarch Zombies as well, and there are plenty. I don't think the reason Youtubers and everyone else online only focuses on Treyarch is necessarily because they were the first to do Zombies. I mean, look at Treyarch and Infinity Ward. IW came first in the series and wowed everyone, but Treyarch put out some heavy hitters to change people's perception. I think none of these developers has gotten a chance to take a real, good crack at zombies. But I also think, ten years later, it may be too late. This style of game mode seems to be dying out when back then survival games were all the rage. The other modes may never be able to come out of Treyarch's shadow, and with Treyarch, they may all fade into obscurity given the way things are going.

    Thanks! I'd love pictures too. I'm almost 50, mostly blind, crippled, and poor, so I only have my phone to post on...so I'm not really adept nor informed at adding pics to posts in an efficient manner. 😕
