At least the song choice was good.

How did it take them this long to think of Paint it Black for Black Ops? They even used Stones songs heavily before lol

Melees/Knives are going back to CoD 2's melee system in Blops 3 to alleviate "panic/commando knifing" that's plagued recent CoDs.

 

Usually in CoD games when your character has his gun up and needs to melee, (s)he'll pull a secret knife out to go for the knife kill.  Sometimes when two opposing players are near each other, the results of who gets knifed depend on who hits the melee button first.

 

Black Ops 3 changes this in that if your character has a gun out, (s)he'll no longer will pull a secret knife out, but rather will attempt to pistol whip/melee with the butt of the gun.  "Gun Melees" are not one hit kills.  It takes two consecutive gun melees to kill enemies.  Of course you can always shoot up an enemy and then go for a gun melee.  Since the enemies will already be weakened, a gun melee will kill them off.

 

Knives are still in Black Ops 3 though, so if you want to use them over gun melees, you need to switch to your Combat Knife first (Combat Knife isn't officially named yet in Blops 3).  Knives will still get you one hit kills in Blops 3.

Unless Nintendo moneyhats for a late Wii U port, Blops 3 is going to every platform but Nintendo's platforms:

Yes.  Even the 360 and PS 3 are getting ports, but not Wii U.

They should port it to Wii.

So e3 footage of Blops 3 multiplayer have come out.  It's a late alpha build, so there's time before final release for things to get finalized.  The upcoming beta period will help with that.

 

I won't post every Blops 3 video that'll come out in the weeks ahead from various people, but here's a preliminary look at Blops 3's multiplayer so far:

 

Sniping:

 

With no toughness perk (flinch less when shot), quickscoping is pretty much nerfed from PS3/360/PC versions of Blops 2.  It's still possible, but it's harder to do consistently.

 

Scorestreaks:

 

You'll notice several returning Scorestreaks from Blops 2 in addition to reskinned/upgraded versions of Blops 2's Scorestreaks.

 

Wraith = Stealth Chopper

Mothership = VTOL Warship

 

The Mothership though will allow two other players to jump into the ship with you to gun down enemy players.  The Mothership needs to be hit five times with rockets to be brought down (tail, body, left wing, right wing, and the helm).  If the wings get toast, current players manning those wings are kicked out and no other players can join you in the Mothership.

A look at Blops 3's Zombies mode.  Set in the 1940's with a bit of film noir, four unlikely people have to come together against the zombies using various weapons of the time period and the future (including the more futuristic Pack-a-Punch variants), new and returning power-ups, and new and returning perks in addition to a new machine shaped like a Gumball Machine, which gives you a random perk when bought.

Hahaha wow, man, that doesn't sit ml show a ton of actual gameplay, but I do love the aesthetic/theme they went for with this one. Way better than anything else so far. I mean, that alone makes me want it, but fuck it--I'm not getting this unless it's on Wii U and you guys get it too. I didn't like BO2's story/campaign mode, but I loved that of Ghosts and Advanced Warfare. If this is still following the nonsense story of Black Ops 2, which I don't get to begin with because I didn't play BO1, but also sucked because they constantly dropped you into the shoes off somebody different without clear distinction so I never knew who the fuck my character was, then I don't see myself enjoying this story either. Plus, it's taking the advanced mobility shit too far. Advanced Warfare posed a good reason for it, but I don't see anyone surpassing Atlas (from AW) so far with good reason.

Der Riese from World at War returns in Black Ops 3 Zombies as "The Giant".  The original four survivors return on this map (yes Richtofen counts as an original survivor even with his future self killing his past self).

So the multiplayer beta has started and while Treyarch has added new things, they also reuse a bunch of shit from Blops 2.  Some Blops 3 scorestreaks are just either carried over from 2 (and sometimes the first game too!) or are reskinned Blops 2 versions.

 

3's version (2's version or 2's version + 1's version) - What 3's version does differently

  • HC-XD (RC-XD) - This version is a small hovercraft that can float over most surfaces including vertical surfaces.
  • Dart (Hunter Killer + Valkyrie Rockets ) - You control Darts like Blops 1's Valkyries, but they function the same as Blops 2's Hunter Killers.
  • Talon (Dragonfire or Escort Drone) - When you control it, it controls like Blops 2's Dragonfire.  If you leave it on auto, it controls like Blops 2's Escort Drone.
  • Cerberus (A.G.R.) - Seems like this doesn't do anything different than Blops 2's A.G.R.s
  • Wraith (Stealth Chopper) - Seems like this doesn't do anything different than Blops 2's Stealth Choppers.
  • H.A.T.R. (Orbital VSAT + Blackbird) - This does the same thing as its Blops 1 and 2 counterparts, but the vehicle is visible in the air this time which means it can be shot down with launchers unlike the Blops 1 and 2 variants.
  • Power Core (EMP Systems) - This does the same thing as Blops 2's EMP Systems, but also as the effect of disabling enemy thrusters. It can be destroyed.
  • Mothership (VTOL Warship) - I explained in an earlier post, but unlike the VTOL of Blops 2, you and two other players can man this beast to rain hell on enemies.  If the wings are destroyed through, your friends get kicked out of the Mothership and can't rejoin you.

 

There are some new Scorestreaks too and some older scorestreaks from Blops 2 have been repurposed into specialist specials (Battery packing that War Machine).

 

NeoGAF has a list of specialists and the full list of streaks in the beta that you can expect:

Bump to report that Blops III is cross-gen (if I already mentioned that, then this is a reminder).  The 360 and PS3 versions will not have campaign mode (those are One, PS4, and PC exclusive).  Last gen will only have multiplayer and Zombies only.

Maybe it's a good thing Wii U misses out again.  We would miss out on campaign AND all of the multiplayer and Zombies DLC and game patches for an even gimpier Wii U CoD than we got with Blops 2 and Ghosts.
