An avid fan of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is calling for the return of Cryptokeys as a way to level up their Black Market pass quicker.
Since the introduction of the Black Market, players have felt that it takes too long to unlock new tiers, and have been calling for a way to gain access to new items and skins.
A Reddit user named ‘Logjamz’ agrees with the sentiment, and believes Treyarch have already created the answer – the return of the in-game currency first seen in Black Ops 3.
Cryptokeys were free currency earned by Call of Duty fans every time they played a match on Black Ops 3. Logjamz suggests that if the currency return to the franchise in Black Ops 4, players could use them to purchase new tiers in the Black Market, in the same way that CoD Points can be used now.
Cryptokeys could also be used in other exciting ways, with Logjamz suggesting that Treyarch could bring back Wager Matches, and could even be used to allow players to place bets on where they would place in a Blackout match.
As it stands, the only way to level up tiers on the Black Market is playing earning XP in games, or buy spending CoD Points to obtain the next available level.
It would cost around $200 to unlock all 200 tiers, but there are ways to unlock every item available in the Black Market without spending a cent.
Unfortunately, there is currently no official plan to bring Cryptokeys back to the Call of Duty franchise, so fans will need to keep grinding if they hope to unlock all the items that come with the Black Market.
Returning for his final event of the Call of Duty League offseason, Team Summertime’s Davis ‘Hitch’ Edwards is hosting an enormous Black Ops 2 Invitational featuring former champions and popular content creators.
Throwback tournaments have been all the rage throughout the 2020 offseason and no one has been leading the charge quite like Hitch. Outside of hosting Warzone comps, his unique tournaments have spanned from Modern Warfare 2 to Black Ops 4. This time, his sights are set on 2012’s Black Ops 2.
Despite hackers ruining an early test for this particular event, the kinks have all seemingly been worked out. From former championship-winning teams to some of the biggest content creators, Hitch’s final event is set to be the biggest yet.
From how you can tune in, to every player joining the all-star Call of Duty event, we’ve got you covered. Here’s everything there is to know about the Black Ops 2 Invitational.
How to watch the Black Ops 2 Invitational
The final event of the offseason is set to kick off on Wednesday, October 28. Opening matchups went live at 3PM EST (12PM PT) and the broadcast will likely run for most of the day.
As per usual, it’s all expected to be featured on Hitch’s own Twitch stream which we’ve embedded below. A majority of the players and creators will likely be sharing their own perspectives throughout the event as well.
Black Ops 2 Invitational teams & bracket
Some squads feature some of the most successful Call of Duty veterans while others consist of popular streamers. Regardless, every team is stacked with FPS talent so expect some close matchups.
Standing out among the eight rosters is a true throwback. The 2014 world championship team of Crimsix, Karma, TeePee, and ACHES, will be reuniting. Formerly representing Complexity and then Evil Geniuses, these four players haven’t been on the same team since 2014.
