YouTuber The XclusiveAce offered a scathing review of the Ghost perk in Black Ops 4.

He didn’t beat around the bush and started the video by saying “I’m gonna tell you right up front, [the ghost perk] is generally not worth it at all and this is the worst ghost perk we have ever seen in a Call of Duty game.”

What makes this perk so much worse in Black Ops 4 comes down to movement speed.

In previous games, players had to be moving for Ghost to make them undetectable to UAVs but that movement speed was low.

Players could even be strafing while looking down the sight of a gun and ghost would be active, now they must be sprinting which is effectively impossible to do for large portions of the time.

 Ace explains the shortcomings of the perk in better detail in the video below:

He makes a great point in that if a player really wants to not appear on a UAV, that class point being spent on Ghost could be spent on a launcher, which can shoot down the UAV.

Ace says he has switched out Ghost on every single one of his classes, usually in favor of a launcher, and recommends everyone else does the same unless Ghost is buffed in a future balance patch.

Call of Duty Mobile’s Anniversary update is in full effect to celebrate the launch of Season 11 and a few big surprises are on the way, including a limited time second map for the battle royale mode.

It’s the one year anniversary of CoD Mobile and the developers are celebrating in a big way. The full Season 11 patch notes outlined a bunch of new content on the horizon. From new rewards and weapons to a full Battle Pass and plenty more, there’s a ton to play for amidst the festivities.

However, there’s also plenty more excitement set to carry the hype through the entire season. Chief among the additions is a special, limited-time map coming just for the battle royale playlist. If you’re a long-time Call of Duty player, you’ll know the location all too well.

Blackout’s Alcatraz map will be available to play alongside the standard Isolated battle royale map you know already.

Blackout’s Alcatraz map is making a return for a limited time in CoD Mobile.

“For our Anniversary Season we’re adding a limited time second map with Alcatraz,” the developers revealed on October 14. This location hasn’t been seen in Call of Duty since Black Ops 4’s take on the battle royale genre with Blackout.

If you weren’t around for its original run, Blackout is a considerably smaller map than what you might be used to in CoD Mobile. “Keep your head on a swivel and take advantage of the map’s verticality,” they advised. “Get up high and rain destruction on your enemies below.”

Similar to Warzone for PC and console players, plenty of vehicles were scattered around the original Blackout map. Expect to see some of those make a return, though every other gameplay element will play exactly the same as you’re used to.

It’s worth noting, however, that this map won’t be a permanent addition to the mobile experience. Alcatraz is included for the Anniversary celebration before it disappears again. Though given how much effort would have been required to port the map to CoD Mobile, it’s likely not the last time we see it.

Keep on high alert at all times as Alcatraz is a much smaller battle royale map than Isolation.

Expect to see plenty of surprises in the battle royale playlist throughout the next month. From new weapons to mods and a ton of balance updates, it’s easily one of the biggest patches to date.
