Black Ops 2 Hardened and Prestige Editions!

August 27, 2012 in BlackOps2, Treyarch

A question I have been asked a lot lately is: “Hey Bunker, have you pre-ordered your Black Ops II yet to lock in the Nuketown 2025?” to which my reply was…..No, I cannot imagine that Treyarch is not coming out with at least a Hardened Edition and maybe a Prestige Edition. Secondly my best bet is at least ONE of these will have Nuketown 2025 on it as well or even both….Well it looks like we finally have an answer via a leak from the Gamestop Conference being held. (REMEMBER NOW, this has yet to be confirmed by ATVI or 3ARC, but WHO wants to bet against me….huh….BRING IT, LOL)


Posted below is the said leak from this source:

“To get their employees ready for the rush of November, Activision has announced the Hardened and Prestige Editions for Blacks Op 2. Hardly a surprised, sure, but news none the less. Please note, we are filing this under rumor because we will not be giving away the name of our source. As most of you know, GameStop is very strict about information with employees and far be it for us to be the cause for someone to place a call to the unemployment center.

This year’s annual Call of Duty game has a very interesting Prestige Edition. Before we’ve gotten night vision goggles and RC cars, this year… remote UAV flyer. That isn’t all, though. The following was the information given to us:

Prestige Edition

Remote UAV Flyer
Exclusive Upgrades
Exclusive Zombie Maps
Pre-Order Nuketown Map
Comes in a replica supply crate

As for the Hardened Edition, we didn’t get too much in the form of details with this one. We expect you’ll see everything except the flyer and special case. Last year the prices for these editions were around $80 for Hardened and $150 for Prestige so you can expect the same or at least around those price tags.”




Black Ops 2 Mulitplayer Reveal AND MORE!!!

August 14, 2012 in BlackOps2, NEWS, Treyarch

This Call of Duty by Treyarch is going to be SIC SIC SIC!!! We’ve all been following along with the “leaked” intel and Scheduled intel releases, but as each rumor is dispelled or “fact’d” plus finding out SO MUCH MORE that this game is going to have as the days are drawing closer….There is NO DOUBT that BLACK OPS II will be the LARGEST ENTERTAINMENT RELEASE EVER!!! (this will be 4 years straight of record breaking IMHO) I will even go as far to say that 2013′s release will not match up to this game. (These are strictly my opinions, remember) But let’s look at Treyarch’s progression in the COD Franchise, Lead by Mark Lamia (WHAT A STUD!!!) Let’s go back to World at War….Not much to talk about really, most thought it was a flop; however, I loved it, but it did lack a lot of graphics but I loved run’n and gun’n with my MP40, then…..A GIANT STEP into Black Ops, bring innovation such as the Dolphin Dive (which is back for BO2) game “DVR” and video editing, inviting to party without going to dashboard or XMB, etc….too much to list. NOW……..OMG Not ALL has been revealed yet; however, with GamesCon2012 going on now and if you’ve been following twitter feeds like I have (Twitter has blown up, LOL) and what we do know so far thanks to twitterverse, this is taking Treyarch & COD to a level, I think, that seems years ahead of it’s time. Below is the video of the “Official Reveal for Multiplayer” but I will tell you some of the things I’ve seen confirmed by the Dev’s and others at GamesCon (God I wished I was there right now).

Do you have a Capture Card to livestream? ….NO PROBLEM, You will be able to livestream from your Console….SAY WHAT???? Oh yes :D They did that. There will be no Pro Perks, but one of the BEST things I found out WRT Perks is GHOST, most of us hate it due to the abuse by campers….WELL GUESS WHAT CAMPERS, CAMP AWAY because GHOST only hides you if you are moving in BO2, LOLOLOLOLOL :D Well done and THANK YOU Treyarch! One big feature this game will have is the 10 slot base setup. You will setup your classes, guns, perks etc, by filling up your 10 slots, this will undoubtedly have a HUGE variety of how people play this game tailored to JUST themselves…….WICKED IDEA. You want 3 attachments on a weapon, go right ahead, use 3 slots with 7 left for other stuff, mix and match it baby ;)

ALSO NOTE, in the video below the “ShoutCasting” at the end of the video, this will be awesome and hilarious IMHO.

Also gone is the “COD Points” or “COD Money” that we seen in Black Ops. BO2 will have an “unlock system” instead. (Have to say I’m glad about this) Kill streaks are gone…..sorta, they have been replaced with “ScoreStreaks” Obtain points towards ScoreStreak to obtain items listed below:

RCC — 325 points — A remote-controlled car packed with explosives.
