Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 - Operation Grand Heist: Super Money Warfare Shooting Turbo

Recommended Posts

Hmm, I’m currently renting and enjoying two thirds of this (not really into zombies) but the micro transactions leaves a really sour taste. 

 

I was was thinking of buying my rental, but sort of waiting for BFV to contrast (as don’t want to buy both) but am enjoying it. I know I can just not buy the micro transactions and feels silly to miss out myself by not buying their game, but kind of don’t want to support such blatant shit behaviour. 

 

Then, is it really any worse than EA will roll out with BF. Urgh.

Enjoying this more now than yesterday, you really have to stick with your team more than in CoD of old. Which is good, but takes some readjusting. Almost like CoD4 in thay respect.

How are people finding zombies? I've had a good bash at the blood of the dead, proper loving it so far. With randoms its a touch harder because they kill the last zombie but its still good fun.

Hmm... the multiplayer is getting pretty bad now. They still haven fixed the numerous crashes and server disconnects. On top of that you also got this really odd frame/lag issue where if you encounter another player the game will stutter about the place sometimes. Really odd.

 

Am also starting to think that despite the jetpack and wallrun mechanics of BLOPS3 it was still more fluid and consistent compared to its sequel. In here I often find myself in a Fortnite jumping match with someone while also wrestling with the netcode at the same time.

Because Fortnite has them. It makes sense in Fortnite because the game is third person and social, in that the tier challenges often encourage social activities and team mates often used gestures to communicate, mock and dance with one another. It’s one of the things Fortnite doesn’t get enough credit for.

 

They make fuck all sense in Blackout because it’s first person and there is no non-combative social element to the gameplay.

Surely you just don't buy it? And as there are no game changing effects it's completely irrelevant?

 

 

 

I think people will buy them because 1) they will look at them in the menus, 2) theatre mode, and 3) people like collecting shit.

 

Theyre gonna make shitloads of money of this one.

The lack of matchmaking in multiplayer makes it too frustrating for me to even bother with anymore. After a game or 2 of being spawn camped and/or destroyed by some triple prestige kid I want to throw my controller at something. I’m sure it’s great if your in the 10% of the player base doing the destroying but for the rest of us it sucks monkey balls. Is it really that difficult to group people with it least a vaguely similar win/loss or KD ratio together?

 

On the plus side Blackout is amazing so I’ve been playing that more than is healthy.

Holy shit the netcode in this is diabolical. I keep on slaughtering guys who put a whole clip into the wall behind me and then getting killed by a single bullet from some guy on a different map. 

 

Feels like an old XBC game

Here's a nice little tips video for Blackout.  A lot of these are really useful and will help you get more consistent.

Yeah, I'm done with this which is gutting given I was stupid enough to go digital. Blackout is literally pot luck and I'll routinely get killed by a guy I've been plugging away at. Zombies- what a joke. Not a single game without a host disconnection. Literally not a single game completed.

I was fortunate enough to buy physical. Not that I was expecting that decision to come into play but it’s now headed to CEX to reclaim £36. Hey, I just about got my money’s worth out of the additional £7 that I won’t be getting back but it’s somehow ended up as the COD I’ve enjoyed least since Ghosts. I don’t know if it’s the game itself, me and my not giving a damn about battle royale, the worst patch in recent memory or the rejuvenated scumbag community, but we’re not getting on.

 

If this is what a return to form is, I’ll take another loss of form next year, thanks.

Blackout is excellent. The mp I’ve given up on it’s pretty boring. Zombies not even played but I’m happy with Blackout and will continue playing it.

I've not played a single game of MP or Zombies.

 

Loving Blackout though. I'm slowly getting the hang of it and I've had a few solo wins.

I still think it's totally great, but only played sporadically since RDR2 came out, rather predictably.

I've only hit super shit lag when my own connection went to crap. 

I just think about the short time I spent with Infinite Warfare's awful multiplayer and in comparison, this is the best COD MP experience in years.

What's with the jumping bullshit anyway, that wasn't something you really had to deal with to quite the same extent when I used to obsess over these games. 

Bumper jumpers or summat. It's been around since Halo 2 but I thought there was a diminishing returns thing on the jump (not jumping as high the more you do it) but it doesn't seem to stop them.

This can get fucked now. 

 

I queue up with a friend: instantly get put into a match in progress where the enemy team is constantly calling in airstrikes. We leave, queue again, get put into another match where the exact same thing is happening. Ok, third time's the charm. This time we queue for a different game mode, we comfortably win, match ends "game session error". Party is disbanded and I'm returned to the main menu where I instantly check my weapon stats: none of my kills counted towards the gun's progression. Nice. :lol:

 

Fuck videogames man. Why does nothing work? Why is everything released in such shoddy fucking states?!

Big Blackout update: 9 Bangs are completely out!

 

Bunch of weapons buffed too.  

 

Still the best mode in BO4.

 

Also, I saw a really cool video where someone threw a trophy system onto their helicopter so they could never get shot down by rockets :)

Do I have to buy "Cod Points" to get the Black Market gear? 

 

I think I'm up to tier 22 and seen some cool skins etc, but absolutely no idea how i'm supposed to activate them or whatever!

Just stay in the first game, you don't get a loss for it so why leave?

No you don't ever have to buy COD points.  Ever.  Unless you want to seperately buy additional specialist contracts or bypass a few tiers.

 

Black Market gear will unlock the more you play.  But it's a slow grind - about an hour's worth of play per tier.

 

When you unlock new gear, press the Option button on the controller and then personalize by pressing triangle over the specialist you want to change.
