Double Weapon XP

double weapon xpAlthough probably not as sweet as regular Double XP this is still great for those trying to eek out those last Prestiges before Black Ops II hits the shelves in November! Now is that chance to rank up those weapons quick so you can stay competitive! You can see from the original tweet below that this is already live!

Collection 3 Chaos Pack

Although I am not personally a fan of Spec Ops or even Face Off (I prefer a bigger crowd – more targets = better lol) this is still an awesome pack for those who do enjoy them! The only bad thing is that this means that Collection 4 which has the rest of the Multiplayer maps won’t be available for the masses until OCTOBER. Read below to see what you’ll get if you go out and purchase this pack.

Oh – and if you had ELITE Premmium? You would have already had these and they should not be available in the regular map rotation. If your having issues please go to the following post and leave a reply there so I can look into it.

New Game Mode – Chaos

Chaos!

This new Spec-Op mode of game play is just insane. You will have to fight off wave after wave of enemies – and they never stop coming!  If you just want some mindless violence maybe after a bad MP match? This is def the mode for you!

The luxurious “Oasis” hotel in Dubai hosts the latest Special Ops mission, in which players must use laser-guided RPG’s to dispatch waves of helicopters. Utilize rooftop advantage to defend from waves of enemies, before parachuting to a ground-level exfil point.

Special Delivery

Deep behind enemy lines, an allied flight crew helplessly awaits their fate at a nearby crash site. Pairing up a soldier on the ground and a helicopter gunner equipped with care packages, the Special Ops mission objective is to overcome the enemy resistance and rescue the allied crew.

 

 

Face Off Maps

Vortex

**Not Actual Game Footage

No storm shelter can keep you safe in “Vortex,” the all-new “Face Off” map that places you just outside the danger zone of a devastating tornado.

 

 

 

 

U-Turn

**Not Actual Game Footage

A bombed-out, gridlocked highway provides a perfect backdrop for combatants on this all-new “Face Off” map, where oil fields burn black high above six-lanes’ worth of abandoned cars, buses and paths for attack.

 

 

 

 

Intersection

** Not In-Game Footage

A New York bridge overpass provides the backdrop for this all-new “Face Off” map in which an ultra-condensed 2-block battle zone allows players to fight on the first and second floors of surrounding apartments and bombed-out bodegas.

 

 

YouTube Trailer

And as usual there is a YouTube trailer for the new mode. Although not as funny as the earlier vids they have put out. This does outline the new CHAOS mode pretty good and gives you an introduction to the new spec op maps. Its just unfortunate that they couldn’t piecemeal this so those only wanting to purchase CHAOS or offered it for free at least?

What do you folks think of Collection 3? Is this a big dud due to not having any Multiplayer maps? Or are you a Spec Ops and Face Off junkie and love it? Leave a comment below!
