    Just wanted to make this thread cause the Blackout beta is out for some of the lucky folks out there in PS4 and will be available for PC players (if you have a code) the 14.

    I /REALLY/ don't like battleroyale, but I gotta admit it looks fun, it looks like PUBG but 10x better, and the gunplay looks and feels like cod, you can still die easily but you get armor first aid etc.

    I'm sad they scrapped story for this BUT, I still hate to say it... It looks like a really solid arcade COD experience that you can have some fun with your friends, and definitely better than BF V, at least they haven't called us stupid yet. (Still red dead will take October but since most of us have pc only this is a good alternative :3)

    What do you think about it?

    EDIT: After trying the beta is a no from me, I can see the appeal but for me the game is just poorly optimized

    and the core gameplay is eh, I mean it's battleroyale but definetelly not what I expect it to be. But the hud is sweet.

    Oh, fuck - I completely forgot, I thought that RDR2 is coming in the next year. But yeah, this looks like a solid battle royale, the gunplay feels good from what I know. Generally speaking, this can be a really fun battle royale experience. In my opinion it's better to have a battle royale mode in which you will have fun with your friends than a campaign on which you will spend 12 hours of your life and then you won't ever play it

    Ain't gonna rain on the parade, if you think it looks fun - more power to you and I hope you enjoy it if you end up getting it and playing it

    I just have some complaints from some footage I saw:

    The inventory system/looting system is fucking trash, screams lazy design

    Also some of these perks, like paranoia - you know what/when someone is aiming at you and one of them was a literal esp for your squadmates.

    Hopefully it’s different for today’s PC beta. But for console it’s not too bad seeing they’re on controller.

    I have high hopes for the game overall- even if blackout falls through and doesn’t meet expectations of the cod community I personally have Zombies to fall back on. It’s hard for a team that knows what they’re doing when it comes to zombies to fuck up a gamemode they’ve been working on for years so :ok:

    The only cool part of the trailer for me was seeing the Verrückt asylum and zombies.

    black ops is just being milked which is actually pretty sad considering i and ii were great

    cod just grinds out the same trash every year now because kids buy it anyway. gone are the days of waw and cod4 where they were interesting and had just one storyline. the multiplayer on the other hand has just gone worse as it's crammed with either cringe worthy emotes or microtransactions. zombies i don't think can topped from what bo ii offered

    worse thing is people still hack on Cod4 and WAW. So you can't even enjoy the good games of the series.

    If it's Activision it can never be better than anything somebody else has done before (even PUBG, which even if they're fixing it now they still have a long road ahead). Sorry to break the mood, but they've turned CoD into an utter trash series, almost a recycle of everything they've ever made, and this looks like it will be exactly the same. I can't trust this stuff anymore, even less for something as exploited as the BR mode.

    CoD4 version 1.8 (community support, Leetmod) is very decent, fixes many bugs and also has a decent anti-cheat. Try it out, you may be able to enjoy it again :grinning:

    Well if you're aiming at the guy long enough for him to get the thing you're not a good sniper at all, so no it's not "bye snipers"

    I'd say it's the other way around, as a sniper you have an opportunity, you want to make sure it counts

    Call of Duty is played in small maps.

    I highly doubt the map for a BR will be as small as CoD maps usually are.

    what arena the game is based in doesn't define it lmao

    black ops had some pretty large maps, as has any other call of duty in history that had functional multiplayer

    have you never played the wasteland map in mw2

    They're still small maps for, let's say, 100 players.

    You've got to be a pretty awesome cod player to quickscope at 800 metres, if you know what I mean.

    The arena doesn't define the game, but it shapes the way players adapt and play in it.

    Big maps or not cod is a fast paced twitch shooter with constant movement. If you take 3 years to line up your shot you will not get very far
