Call of Duty: Neymar leaks classic Black Ops 2 map coming to Blackout

Professional soccer player Neymar Jr. has seemingly leaked a new location being added to the map of Call of Duty’s new Blackout battle royale mode.

According to a video posted by the superstar on his Instagram page, the classic Black Ops 2 Multiplayer map called Hijacked could be the next addition in Blackout.

In the video, Neymar Jr. can be seen standing in front of a poster that has Hijacked written in large letters and the iconic boat where the map was located in BO2. 

The video was a teaser for Neymar’s Black Ops 4 stream on December 3, in which he plays Blackout with his Paris Saint-Germain teammates Marquinhos and Thiago Silva, as well as popular Brazilian YouTuber Alan ‘alanzoka’ Ferreira. 

This is the first hint of Hijacked being in Black Ops 4, as there had not been any previous mention of the map coming to either the Blackout or Multiplayer modes. 

The poster itself has also never been seen or used before in any Call of Duty promotional material, which rules out it the possibility that it’s just an old-school image from the Black Ops 2 days.

It wouldn’t be a stretch of the imagination by any means if Hijacked were brought back in Blackout, especially since Treyarch’s Studio Lead Designer David Vonderhaar recently hinted at changes coming to the map.

“We are on record as saying that we are more interested in adding/subtracting and morphing this map than making new maps,” he tweeted on November 28.

It also wouldn’t be the first time Hijacked was remade for a future title; the Multiplayer map Skyjacked was a futuristic remake of the classic map in Black Ops 3.

Of course all of this should be treated as nothing more than speculation until either Activision and/or Treyarch officially announce or confirm the news, although most fans would likely get excited by even just the prospect of this being the next new location in Blackout.

New Warzone update removes helicopters & adds Juggourdnaut Royale

Infinity Ward has pushed out a new playlist update for both Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone and while it adds some modes to the game like Juggourdnaut Royale, it also removes helicopters from the night-version of its battle royale.

New playlist updates for Modern Warfare and Warzone, generally speaking, only change out the gamemodes in the game, but today’s is a bit special. According to some notes released by Infinity Ward, the new hotfix removes two major aspects of the title.

The first is the removal of helicopters from the night version of Verdansk, which is pretty major to say the least. Currently, it’s unclear exactly why Infinity Ward made this change, as they didn’t specify in their tweet. It could be due to a bug, low visibility, or something else entirely.

Pumpkin heads have also been removed from Modern Warfare and Warzone.

In addition, the developer also removed the pumpkin heads due to a bug occurring, although exactly what that bug is was also not made clear. It’s also undetermined if this removal also affects the pumpkin heads on the juggernaut suit, which automatically has the head attached when you put it on.

Beyond these removals however, the update also adds a new mode, Juggourdnaut Royale. Despite the name being a bit different, this is the exact same mode as Juggernaut Royale, which was added to the game during Season 4. Players have to fight over juggernaut suits located around the map in order to survive.

On top of that, Infinity Ward also added BR Solo Survivor and Plunder: Candy Collector to the rotation, both of which appear to be renamed versions of the standard modes.

It’ll be interesting to see how long it takes the developers to re-add the helicopter and pumpkin heads to the game. While the former has obviously been in the game from the start, the latter is a nice seasonal treat that will only be around for a couple more weeks.
