Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Scorestreaks Revealed for Upcoming Multiplayer Beta

The multiplayer beta for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is only days away, and for the first time scorestreaks which will be available have been revealed.

It will come as no surprise that scorestreaks make a return in Black Ops 4, as they have been a staple of every entry in the series since CoD 4, and some familiar looking payloads will return this year.

PS4 players who have preordered the game will get hands on with the beta on August 3, and will be the fist to get hands on with these scorestreaks.

Some of the returning favorites include the RC-XD (remote controlled explosive device), which first appeared in Black Ops 1. For Black Ops 4, it is back on the ground – gone is the floating, jumping ‘HC-XD’ of Black Ops III.

There is also the return of the Hellstorm Missile, a manually guided rocket which was present in Black Ops 2 and Black Ops III.

But some completely new scorestreaks are also on show in the trailer, such as the ‘Strike Team’. From previous gameplay footage, this is two AI soldiers who drop into the map and take out enemies in a designated area.

And finally, the trailer also shows off a four legged robot streak, the name of which is not revealed in the trailer, but is believed to be called the ‘Mantis’.

The Mantis looks like a deadly streak, and is expected to be one of the more costly to earn. Fans will have to wait for the trailer to see how scoring from kills, assists (which now count as kills) and objective work counts towards streaks.

The beta is first on PS4 on August 3-6, before returning on August 10 for both PS4 and Xbox One, and PC will also get a beta August 10-13.

Five game modes (TDM, Domination, S&D, Hardpoint and Control) and six maps will be available in the multiplayer beta. New specialists, as well as some familiar from Black Ops III, will also be available.

A beta for the battle royale mode, Blackout, is set for September, but no specific dates have been announced yet.

How to find Warzone Leatherface house easter egg on Verdansk map

With Call of Duty: Warzone celebrating its first Halloween, there’s some unique changes to the map: here’s everything you need to know to find and enter Leatherface’s house on the Verdansk map.

Warzone’s Halloween celebrations are well underway, with a ton of new content for players to dive into. This includes a number of ghostly easter eggs, one of which takes the shape of a creepy Leatherface shack located on the Verdansk map.

Leatherface is infamous for his role as the antagonist in The Texas Chainsaw film series. First debuting in 1974, the cannibalistic murderer has been reincarnated multiple times. You can even unlock Leatherface content in Modern Warfare and Warzone to strike fear into the heart of your opponents.

In order to find his house, you need to head to the very east side of the map, towards Krovnik Farmland. Once there, you’ll find a small hut towards the top of the south east areas of huts.

Once you’re nearby it should be pretty easy to locate – there are plenty of signs that it’s the house of a serial killer. A demonic Leatherface figure will greet you at one of the windows, while body parts are littered around the downstairs. Chainsaw noises will also play from upstairs, before two Leatherface figures ambush you on your trip up the stairs.

There’s no in-game reward for visiting the house of Leatherface, but it’s an awesome feature for fans of The Texas Chainsaw series to enjoy nonetheless. It’s fair to assume you could terrify unsuspecting players by waiting among the scattered body parts and incarnations of the mass murderer.

At the time of writing Halloween is still has over a week left, so Infinity Ward could well have some more tricks (or treats) up their sleeves for the Haunting of Verdansk event.
