Zombies characters leaked for Black Ops 4 DLC pack one, and they all resemble celebrity actors

It appears that the Zombies characters for the first DLC pack in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 have been leaked, according to information posted by several users on Reddit.

After the latest Black Ops 4 update went live on December 3, four new characters reportedly appeared in the Zombies mode of the game.

Images of these characters were immediately posted on Reddit, and many began assuming that these characters were going to be part of the game’s first DLC pack. 

Upon first glance, one thing that stands out about them is that they have a striking resemblance to celebrity actors, with the first three looking like Lucy Lawless, Charles Dance, and Kiefer Sutherland respectively. 

It’s unclear but very likely that these celebrities will also be doing the voice acting for the characters in-game, although the identity of the fourth person remains unconfirmed as of now. 

Lucy Lawless
Charles Dance
Kiefer Sutherland
Identity yet undetermined.

It’s not exactly clear how these Reddit users were able to get access to images of these characters. It’s very likely to have just been a glitch, since new game files after updates are not accessible on PlayStation 4 like they are on PC.

If these leaked images are legitimate, then this would be the first hint of any new DLC content for Black Ops 4, since neither Activision or Treyarch have announced anything about DLCs.

Traditionally, the first DLC for a CoD title releases about two months after launch, which would technically be this month for Black Ops 4 since it launched in mid-October.

Furthermore, Activision had announced prior to the game’s release that DLC content would be released more often for this title than in previous years, which has always seen four DLC packs per CoD game. 

However, until any official announcement or confirmation is made about the upcoming DLC, these images of new Zombies characters should be treated as nothing more than speculation.

Another Warzone streamer shows hacks live on Twitch stream

Like clockwork, another Call of Duty: Warzone streamer has exposed their in-game cheats while playing live on Twitch. And this time, the cheater did not take kindly to chat quickly trashing him.

Hackers have been the biggest issue in Warzone; with cross-play enabled between PC and console players for the first time, the CoD fanbase has been exposed to even greater levels of cheating than ever before.

Going by ‘festation’ on Twitch, yet another streamer has outed themselves as a cheater on the platform by displaying their hacks while broadcasting live. In this case, they were quickly called out on Twitter and in the chat, leading to deleted clips and a switch to Black Ops 4 gameplay.

With Twitch chat flaming him for being bad at Modern Warfare and Warzone even with hacks activated, festation proceeded to let them know that he is elite on Black Ops 4 and challenged them to 1v1 matches. He then switched over to the earlier CoD title, but not before his hacks were clipped and shipped across the internet.

As shown in the clip, downloaded before its inevitable deletion on Twitch, festation is rolling around Verdansk while knowing precisely where every single opponent is on the map. He can see players, color-coded based on their health, with a structural indication of their character model’s movement through walls.

Similarly, he also has indicators for guns, cash, and armor found throughout the map. Unfortunately for him, that sort of unfair game awareness doesn’t equate to the IQ that matters, as he is easily blown up by a Cluster Strike at one point.

This is likely why Twitch chat laid into him even more, as fans typically shame hackers for remaining inferior at the game even when gaining an unfair advantage. 

Part of the reason why he gained a decent amount of viewers on Twitch was likely because of getting exposed on Twitter. Concerned fans of the battle royale went so far as to reply to a random TimTheTatMan tweet to try and bring attention to the blatant hacking.

In response, new viewers could enjoy seeing the cheater switch over to BO4 and continue to struggle while throwing out challenges to his detractors in chat: “Get on Black Ops 4, watch me smack any of you on Hardpoint.”

This is far from the first time a streamer has been exposed for cheating. In the past, one accidentally displayed his hacks while another purposefully tried to show his off. As of yet, neither Infinity Ward nor Twitch appear to have banned festation, but repercussions seem likely following this exposure.
