Details have been revealed about player health and healing in the ‘Blackout’ battle royale mode of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4.

GameInformer, who have gotten early access to Blackout, have revealed that player health in Blackout will start at 150, which is similar to the health levels in Black Ops 4 Multiplayer.

Players will also have a variety of healing items that they can use to increase their health during matches.

Blackout will feature basic bandages, trauma kits, and king-sized med-kits as healing consumables. The full list of healing items and consumables has not yet been revealed, so players will likely have to wait for the upcoming Private Beta to get a better look.

One major confirmed difference that Blackout’s healing system will have from other BR games is that basic level bandages will get players back to full health. Fortnite, for example, only increases health to 75% of the total health bar. 

Much like the Multiplayer, players in Blackout will have 150 health and will be able to use a variety of consumables to heal themselves during the match.

An earlier revealed list of some of the perks and consumables that will be in Blackout contained two health related items: Stimulant and Consumer.

  • Stimulant: Increases max health by 100 points
  • Consumer: Reduces times it takes to use items, heal, or revive teammates by 20%.

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.

Black Ops Cold War combat record
Reddit: Pilgore1
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.”
