There is still very little known about this year’s upcoming instalment in the Call of Duty series, Black Ops 4, but a tweet from E3 has all but confirmed the popular Zombies mode will return.

First revealed back in March 2018, the new game will release earlier than usual, on October 12th, but the reveal did little more than show clips from previous games in the Black Ops series.

Save for a couple small hints at multiplayer (perks and pick 10 create-a-class system) there has been next nothing from any official source since then.

In fact, with the exception of multiplayer, fans do not even know what modes will be in the game – with many hints towards the tradition campaign mode being scrapped, and a new Battle Royale mode in its place.

Now though, a tweet from organizers of the biggest annual gaming convention, E3, have all but confirmed Zombies will return in Black Ops 4.

The tweet carefully avoids flat out stating that BO4 will have Zombies, instead asking “what is next” and to listen to the history of Zombies in past Black Ops games.

However, the Tweet very clearly and strongly suggests that Treyarch will have some new information to share about the Black Ops Zombies ‘experience’ – whatever that may entail in the coming release.

Of course E3 will take place in June, long after Treyarch have completed their much anticipated curtain raiser at the community reveal event on May 17th.

That is when fans should get the first real knowledge about what exactly is to come in the fourth Black Ops game.

Black Ops Cold War player hits first prestige without a single kill

An extremely patient Call of Duty player has just reached first prestige in Black Ops Cold War, without ever dealing damage to their opponents.

The name of the game with Call of Duty has always been simple. Kill your opponents before they kill you. It’s the core principle for which every other system in the franchise has been built around.

While a majority of players stick to fundamentals and play the game as intended, there’s always some that veer from the path. As gamers are sinking their teeth into Black Ops Cold War, many have reached new heights with the innovative prestige system. Though one player has taken their time in reaching the very first prestige.

They’re not worrying about their KD. They don’t care for weapon camos or powerful attachments. They’re never trying to top the leaderboards. All this player cares about is ending each match with zero kills to their name.

This player reached first prestige in Black Ops Cold War without a single kill to their name.

It took a full 37 hours of game time for Reddit user ‘Pilgore1’ to accomplish their goal. Without ever killing another player, they reached the first prestige over the course of 200 games.

Their highest killstreak throughout this effort was a whopping zero. This player literally never acquired a single-elimination, not even accidentally. Instead, they spent their time focusing on other aspects of the game.

Playing the objective and “clearing the sky,” were the key factors that gained this player XP over time. It clearly took longer than the typical prestige, but they still managed to make it happen.

Surprisingly, their overall record was positive despite the lack of slaying power. 102 wins to 83 losses was the final tally. They even had a career-best winning streak of seven games in a row, according to the player.

They used “all three LMGs” with a heavy focus on “vehicle damage” attachments. Moreover, the Engineer perk came in handy as did Cold Blooded. When the skies were clear of enemy streaks and it came time to focus on the objective, however, they simply “[threw their] body on there.”

There’s no telling what drove them to play Call of Duty in such a unique way. Though they still managed to enjoy the process. “I just find doing it fun,” they explained. “I also have a lot, maybe too much, patience, so that helps.”
