Recommended Posts

Vahn has been very busy tweeting answers to questions about Black Ops MP. Here is all the information we have learned from this:

- The FAL is single shot and the base configuration is metal.

- CODPoints cannot be bought with real money or MS Points.

- Need 6 people to do a Wager match.

- There are 4 Snipers (I only know about the L96, the Dragunov and the WA2000, what is the 4th?)

- No Danger Close Pro type perks.

- You don't have to unlock everything with XP and Rank.

- Attack dogs kill in one bite.

- You can report boosters via their Playercard (Not Gamercard!), and then Treyarch will watch the report in Theater Mode.

- Earn CODPoints by leveling up, contract completion, and wager match earning.(do you get cp from killing people?).12 different game modes, not including hardcore or barebones variations.

- RC car DOES have a time limit, it is currently set at 30 seconds, although this can be annulled in Private Match (Races!)(yaaayy! lol)

- You cannot dashboard from a Wager match, as you put the money in at the beginning.

- Lose all of your CODPoints when you Prestige, although Treyarch are considering giving extra starting CODPoints to Prestigers.

- There are not 5 levels of prestige. There may be more or less, no amount has been confirmed.

- Team Tactical is in Black Ops

- Join in progress is not disabled

- All gun customisations are specific to that weapon. e.g. You have to rebuy the Treyarch reticule for each gun.

- Scavenger doesn't refill grenade launchers.(awesome)

- Grenade launchers are the most expensive attachment and cannot be used with Warlord.

- Flak jacket will save you from most grenade launcher attacks.

- 10 is not the max prestige.

- The vehicles in multiplayer are the killstreaks, there are no tanks, jeeps or motorcycles. However, this had "(in MP)" after it, so it might be confirmation of all three in Single Player.

- Have to level up to play hardcore, like in previous games in the series.

- Customisable private matches are classified. (Although, I remember something being mentioned about the RC-XD timer being set to unlimited in private matches, so as to allow races). ( what is the point in them being classified?)

- Chopper gunner pilot cannot be killed.

- Lose all guns you buy when you prestige.

- Slight of Hand Pro does not work with snipers.

- Explosive crossbow is a one hit kill, even with Flak Jacket on.

- Ballistic knife lunge is the same distance as ordinary knife.

- Because your gun and first perk changes appearance, you can see what you look like in all faction in the create-a-class menu.

- "Many Bothans died to make sure we can still run at 60" 60fps confirmed.

- Splitscreen is available in the Low Limit wager matches.

- All purchased emlem images, backgrounds and layers stay when you prestige.

- Dashboarders will be punished.(what the hell does that mean lol)

- To buy classified guns, you will first have to buy all other guns in that class.

- Person on splitscreen has to sign in first, there is no join in session.

- Combat Training has free-for-all and Team Deathmatch.

- Morter strike killstreak hits three different locations one at a time, with a slight delay.

- Killstreaks stack.

- Objectives take priority over weapon pick-ups.( what does this mean?)

- Changing the difficulty in Combat training does not affect bot heath, but other variable, e.g. targeting time.

- PS3 confirmed to have split-screen online.

- Nearly all lobbies support party chat, Search and Destroy does not.

- 4 player offline, 2 online.

- Everything unlocked in offline.

- Cannot buy CoDPoints for cash.

- CoDPoints is about 10% of XP, not including contracts and eager matches.(does this mean if you get like 500xp you would get 50 cod points?)

- Can shoot down the Car Package chopper (SAM turret is the easiest way), but it still drops the crate.

- Begin on 0 CP

- Can get attack dogs and gunships in care packages, but the probability is low.

- Variable zoom has 3 levels.

- Have to buy pro perks. (lame)

- There will be a prison map. (cool)

I will try to keep this thread updated as Vahn answers more Tweets(please answer all my ,Cosmic_Silverback, questions or reply to my reactions) .
