Call Of Duty Black Ops 2 Online GuideIn this post we will be looking at Black Ops 2 online and some of the new additions that you will need to be aware of if you are just starting out. We will be addressing some of the major changes but we also have some good Black Ops 2 multiplayer tips if you are looking to improve your gameplay and you can also see our weapon guide as well.

If you have just picked up the game and you have played other Call of Duty games there is nothing that will trouble you too much but let us run through the new additions.

Pick 10

This is probably the biggest change but is quite simple. Basically when you are picking your weapons, attachments and perks each one will cost 1 point and you get to allocate those points as you see fit. This gives you a huge amount of control on how you use your class and load outs but you will also need to know what you are doing and know the maps and weapons.

It can also lead to some pretty strange set ups – for instance you could just use a knife and have six perks!

Inside the new system you also have something called Wildcards.

These basically allow you to bend the rules and you could have 2 perks in tier 1, 2 or 3.

This system will give you more control but don’t rush your set up. Find out how you play and then build a class to suit your playstyle.


Black Ops 2 has done away with kill streaks and now you are aiming for Score streaks. The main difference being is that it is not JUST kills that are important in getting streaks but points. For instance if you take a game mode like Kill confirmed getting a kill is worth 50 points however collecting the tag will give you 100 points. So in theory you could not even score a single kill and get a pretty decent score streaks.

Game Modes:

One of the new game modes is Hardpoint and basically you will be fighting for control for certain areas of the map. It is very much like King of the Hill and the winning team will have spent more time in the Hardpoint.


There are a few changes to the weapons in Black Ops 2 and these are:

KSG-12:  This weapon you will find in MW2 however it is a lot different in BO2. It will fire a single, deadly bullet as oppose to a spray of bullets.

M1216: This is a fully automatic shotgun but you must reload every 4 shots. Something to be aware of.

Chicom QCB:  This is a burst fire weapon which makes it awesome for short range combat.
