We are less than a week away from the first reveal for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, but what can we realistically expect to be ‘revealed’.

Since the game’s title and logo was officially unveiled back in March, Treyarch have been characteristically tight lipped about anything and everything Black Ops 4 related.

There were some leaks that come out reporting things like no campaign, a battle royale mode and a multiplayer that resembled Overwatch, but Treyarch did make attempts to dispell these.

They teased not only a pick 10 create-a-class system and perks (including suggestions that the game would be boots on the ground style combat), but the reveal event is what everyone is waiting for now.

Due to the teasers being multiplayer focused (unless perks and create-a-class are being incorporated into campaign) then this would support the leak that there is no campaign, as this is usually teased before multiplayer.

Moreover, lots of YouTubers and streamers have been invited to the event and the invitations confirmed that they would get ‘hands on’ with the game.

Call of Duty also tweeted a trailer for the event, which includes advertising a ‘world gameplay reveal’.

So, we know at the very least we will be seeing some gameplay, and all signs point to it being multiplayer gameplay, which would be a first for so early in the promotional cycle.

This will also of course reveal the time period of the game, which is still completely unknown. There have been suggestions that the game will feature time travel however, so this might not be concrete.

We should also be discover which movement system is employed, advanced or ‘jetpacks’, or classic boots on the ground. The perk teaser certainly strongly hinted at the latter, but we won’t know for sure until the reveal.

And if these personalities invited out can get their hands on the gameplay, we will also have the first images/videos, as they will presumably be permitted to record some of their gameplay.

As for the Zombies, for which we had the first teaser image for yesterday, it may be mentioned next week, but in all likelihood its own will be at E3 in June.

We may be in for some surprises too, such as an unveiling of a Battle Royale mode that is still not officially confirmed but that many speculate will feature.

We can also expect a date for the beta that would most likely arrive in August, or perhaps announcements of bonuses for pre-ordering the game.

This also could, possibly, include MW2 Remastered, which has gone fairly quiet after all the rumors earlier this year.

Expectations are particularly high for this event and Treyarch will have have a lot of fans hopes for the continued success of the Call of Duty franchise weighing on their shoulders.

The community reveal event will go live on Wednesday 17th May, at 10am PDT, 6pm BST, 1pm EST and 7pm CET.

Warzone FOV setting on PC can reduce visual recoil on weapons

Call of Duty players have uncovered an unusual field-of-view setting in Warzone, claiming that weapons such as the CR-AMAX seem to have less visual recoil when it is toggled.

The weapon meta is continuing to shift in Warzone as more changes are released in Season 6, giving players plenty of unique weapons and playstyle to try in the battle royale.

Popular YouTuber Swagg was one of the latest to reveal a Season 6 loadout for Warzone but claimed there was also a “secret” setting that was helping him to rack up more kills in-game.

CoD players like Swagg have claimed that Warzone’s FOV settings can affect recoil in-game.

While the CR-56 AMAX, which was featured as the Galil in past CoD titles, has been a solid weapon since its release, there are, apparently, some field-of-view settings that Warzone players can change to make the gun easier to use.

In his October 24 upload, Swagg revealed that having the “Affected FOV” setting enabled makes it seem as if the AMAX has little to no recoil. This is opposed to the default Independent FOV setting.

“Affected FOV on PC makes guns feel like they don’t have recoil,” Swagg revealed, in his Warzone gameplay, “[it’s the] reason why I use Amax now.”

The AMAX does not usually stand out above other Assault Rifles in its class, but it still has one of the highest base stats when it comes to damage per second (DPS), meaning that less recoil would make this quite a strong choice in the current meta.

While the weapon, with these affected FOV settings, appears to move less compared to CR-56 AMAX gameplay for console players, it is unclear whether or not it actually has a major effect on the gun.

However, it seemed to be working quite well for Swagg, as he highlighted just how strong it could be, managing to pick up plenty of kills in his Warzone match with fellow content creator booya.

Another CoD YouTuber Webzy has previously highlighted the difference in recoil between the Affected and Independent settings, echoing the sentiment of the FaZe member and claiming it was actually easier to hit shots with it enabled.

Infinity Ward is regularly coming out with fixes for any bugs found in-game but it appears as if this FOV setting was intended to be a feature, making it unclear whether or not this will be patched.
