Black Ops 4: General Gaming Discussion (not support)

Recommended Posts

I was super hyped for WW2 but was very disappointed, Such a let down the most bland cod to date imo, First cod iv'e not continue to play till the next one is out. 

Although BO4 might get me back into cod as i really enjoyed the beta, Plus Black out and league play is what i'm most hyped for.

Nasty taste that WW2 left?  Its great like like all the other COD's

It just didn't really grab me like the other CoDs have. I found it all a bit too chaotic and random, without the normal flow of a CoD. And then there's the footsteps 🤣, the lack of them made me rage. For once, I didn't care about completing challenges, earning camos, or unlocking stuff. I didn't like the weapons or the class/perk system, I just didn't find it as much fun as I'd expected and got bored of it too quickly.

I can't say I didn't enjoy playing it for a few games most days but I didn't want to play constantly like I would expect from a CoD. And I wouldn't play it on my own like I would most other games.

BO4 though... I enjoyed all of the weapons I tried, I enjoyed the pace of the game, I like the specialist setup and the create-a-class system and I'm really looking forward to blistering my thumbs on it.

How does the TTK feel in BO4?  Based on the videos I've seen, it looks high.

Yeah, it's quite high/long, maybe they'll reduce the TTK slightly because at times it felt a bit too long. But I prefer a TKK that's longer than a TTK where I'm dead before I know I'm being shot at.

Initially had some serious doubts but after the beta I'm more excited about BO4 now... Both the regular game modes and the Blackout mode I think are going to be fun.  I'm still not a fan of the self-healing in regular game modes and I absolutely hate specialists... (Don't know why we need them!).

I'm not in the WW2 bashing camp, I actually thought it was a good game, played to prestige level 220.  Was it perfect?  No... there are things that to this day I wish they would have changed but overall I feel it was a fun game and worth playing.  Also, overall Sledgehammer did a good job making changes along the way to try and accommodate what the community was asking for.  I like the pick 10 system the best but for this particular game the division system worked OK.  The game became much better after the major division overhaul update.  I couldn't get into BO3 and IW so I was just so happy to have a COD game without advanced movement I embraced the game and still enjoy playing it.

Been reading many mixed reviews on blops4, thought id pop in to see what people here are saying. I wasn't impressed with the beta or WW2 which was a shame as I love fps games but have been struggling to find one that suits. I know the beta was just that so do not want to judge on that basis but would like to find another fps to play as not had one for over a year now. 

Does the game have bots so you can get a bit of practice in before getting your backside handed to you and whats the ttk like? 

Any review would be most helpful, cheers all. :)

Played regular game to level 12 last night and a couple rounds of Blackout.  My initial impressions are I do like the game, nice change up from COD WW2 which was definitely getting stale for me.  The biggest thing that takes getting used to is the self-healing, I keep going to re-load instead of heal after a gunfight and it ends up killing me.  The biggest thing I noticed on the regular game was that I am not connecting to any dedicated servers, all peer... which is making the connection really hit and miss.  Only time I was connecting to dedicated servers was when I played Blackout.  There have been a lot of lost gunfights which felt really glitchy/laggy to me, unlike COD WW2...The old scenario where I see a guy and we both start shooting at the same time, but when I watch the kill-cam it shows him seeing me earlier and emptying half a mag into me before I even started firing.  I really hope Activision is providing dedicated servers for the regular game, not just for blackout.  When I turned Geofilter on I could not connect to anything in the regular game which was a little disheartening.  I don't know if the router needs an update to recognize the servers or not.  (not sure how that works).

To answer your  question about the bots.  Yes you can play a local game against bots, I did several before I joined an online game to find tune my controls and such.  The ttk is definitely on the high side, probably higher than any of COD game has ever been, but it didn't bother me quite as much as I thought it was going to.  I love the pick 10 system being back, and coming from playing WW2 it's nice not to have half of my deaths coming from explosives...  The other thing that is not as annoying as I thought it was going to be is the specialists.. While I still maintain they are un-needed, it seems to work fine in the game and none of them are completely OP.  My favorite is Recon.  Only played 2 rounds of Blackout.  Runs very smooth and looks decent.  First round I landed and immediately got shot and killed.  2nd round I made it to the final 2, almost won but got killed by the last guy standing.

I will say that it plays very much like the beta, but with obvious improvements.  So if you absolutely hated beta you probably won't like the full game either.  I can get used to the changes, and I see myself liking the game and playing it alot.  My biggest concern at this point is what seems to be the lack of dedicated servers for the regular game modes.

The MP : The graphics have been improved since the beta, very detailed. at first I thought the frame rate was fixed but on some maps it does judder and tear ( just like Blops 3 still does to this day)

I think it is awesome and I am going to batter cod for another year, very happy with it :)

I would say lend a copy to try as one man's gold is another man's shit.

I haven't touched any of the multiplayer yet as I want to have a fresh experience playing on DumaOS when I receive it in a few days. But I have been playing the specialists stories which is pretty much like playing local offline against bots. I've been enjoying the game so far, and actually find it interesting they went this route for the campaign-isque type of feel. As I do feel this the true masonry or foundation for the treyarch titles that will follow afterwards. I enjoyed blackout and multiplayer from beta and from reading comments and a few videos. Seems like something I'm going to enjoy playing online as well.

They have changed the assets it looks much better, the store dl was around 50gb. I think the disk is the old version so you have to overwrite with the altered new downloaded version.

I know it is all personal preference and all that, for me this game is awesome, having a brilliant weekend playing MP :)

I’ve had my first few games tonight and so far I think it’s brilliant, very enjoyable. Looking forward to really hammering it tomorrow.

Only game I can play at minute as other stuff downloads is blackout and I thought id hate it, but its kinda growing on me, a bit like VD but it has been enjoyable as I wait for the MP to download. Died 3 times got one kill. After years of HC gaming the ttk is taking a bit of getting used too but its fun

Where is the HC mode ffs, I hope it has it but I cant find it yet

When you're on the game mode screen, where you can see Chaos Moshpit / Capture Moshpit, you're on 'Featured' game modes...

Core and Hardcore are the next tabs along - can't quite remember, RB or RT to scroll I think.

Domination (which was always my favorite game mode) kinda sucks on this game.  It's easy to tell the maps were primarily built with Control in mind, not Domination.  Getting spawn trapped is fine, but when I'm consistently spawning into someone shooting me in the back there is a problem.  Other than that, I like the game.

Spawns on all modes are very strict, I am sure they will tweak this.
