Although Treyarch’s David Vonderhaar stated that he wasn’t sure if Call of Duty: Blackout would support draws, it appears that this result has been confirmed by players of the Private Beta.
Reddit user ‘u/QetFuckedKid’ uploaded a screenshot of the game’s result screen to the platform, which revealed that their game had ended in a draw.
They weren’t the only ones to experience this development, either.
YouTuber CHIEF CMG uploaded a clip of his match, which likewise ended in a draw.
His shock and surprise were expressed in the video, which he released on September 11 – a day after the Reddit post was published.[ad name=”article3″]
Other streamers, YouTubers, and Twitter users have likewise documented their surprise at the development.
Twitch streamer FragOute had an exceptional reaction, appearing incredulous that the game could have ended in a draw.
Treyarch’s David Vonderhaar stated in an interview with Game Informer that he wasn’t sure if Blackout would support this result. One of the 195 rapid-fire questions flung at him during the questioning dealt with deaths in the game, specifically asking what would happen if a player were to crash a helicopter into an enemy to win the round.
Vonderhaar stated that such a development would be a draw, as the pilot would also die – but wasn’t too certain if draws themselves were supported in the title.
“I should test that. That would be a draw. I don’t know if we support draws. I should check that out. Fuck.”
As it so happens, it looks like Blackout does support draws. We can’t help but wonder if Vonderhaar actually went back to test that theory – after all, it does sound like an interesting way to end a game.
