The details of a patent filed by Activision in 2015, recently revealed in Rolling Stone magazine, show the methods behind Activision's reliance on microtransactions.
U.S. Patent 9,789,406 was filed May 14th, 2015 and is described as "System and method for driving microtransactions in multiplayer video games ". It has the following points:
- "For example, in one implementation, the system may include a microtransaction engine that arranges matches to influence game-related purchases. For instance, the microtransaction engine may match a more expert/marquee player with a junior player to encourage the junior player to make game-related purchases of items possessed/used by the marquee player. A junior player may wish to emulate the marquee player…
The live-action trailer for Call of Duty: WWII called "Reassemble!" has been released.
As you can see, it focuses on a group of friends gathering the team for an epic battle. Unlike previous Call of Duty live-action trailers, it doesn't feature visual references to the game itself (with celebrities, etc.), nor the usual "There's A Soldier In All Of Us" slogan.Read more >
Just trying to figure out how to make userboxes or if you are able to use someone else's (because I'm lazy when it comes to things like coding, etc). Thank you.Read more >
Yup. Same deal as before. These are weapons from CoD 4 until BOIII, as those are the only ones I've played.
Not a lot of competition with CoD 4 shotguns, so I think this one was obvious.
Some of you may argue that the Double-Barreled Shotgun is better, but I disagree. It might be because I was that one guy who ran the bayonet with this gun.
Was there a doubt? Akimbo 1887, was bae. Not just for me, but for everyone.
Stakeout with grip was my go to shotgun. With a few exceptions, my favorite shotguns are the ones you have you prime before you can continue firing.
I know what I just said about priming shotguns, but how can I not like this gun with ammo size that big?
I can not aim worth a damn with this gun, but when I do hit someone with that sl…

Same thing as before, only this time it's with SMGs. So, lets get started.
Again, I never played the multiplayer for CoD 4, but this gun was my favorite in singleplayer.
Like I said with the STG-44, was there a doubt? This gun was a beast. IS a beast. No gun in that game could compete.
Like the PPSh-41, this gun is also a beast. The high ammo count, the massive damage, everything.
I remember using this gun more than any other gun in BO. I was usually that guy who ran the grenade launcher on the gun, because it's the only SMG that can.
I don't know what it is about this gun that I loved so much. But after my second prestige, this was what I perma-unlocked.
Before it was announced as DLC, my choice was the PDW-57 for the high ammo count. B…

I believe another user did this once. Can't remember who, but I figured I'd give my personal preference. I'm gonna do one from each game from CoD 4 up to BO3, as I haven't played the first three or IW. Again, my own opinion. With that said, here we go.
Now, I was introduced to Call of Duty when CoD 4 was old news. Like My first CoD was Black Ops. So, mind you, I never played the multiplayer. With that said, it was hard for me to pick between the AK47 and the M4 Carbine. But when it came down to it, the AK47 is better in my opinion.
Come on, was there a doubt? I didn't need to play the multiplayer to know that this was the best rifle in the game. It could be the nostalgia talking, but I'm pretty sure it's the fact that it's the only…

Hey guys and gals of Wikia! I was just now wondering this, Infinite Warfare has brought back many classic weapons, but there's one weapon in particular that would complete it perfectly: the legend-stats Crossbow! I want to hear from all you folks: Should Infinite Warfare bring the Crossbow back?Read more >
All personal preference, this list. This doesn't have any particular order either.
If you thought that I'd not include this mission, you're kidding yourself. This mission set the bar for all stealth missions. In fact, no stealth mission has come close to this level of good except for Vendetta. The convoy section scared the crap out of me.
Speak of the devil. This mission was really good. The only reason I would put it before All Ghillied Up is because you get caught half way through. Then it no long becomes a stealth mission. But waking up in the fountain, taking out the enemies at the beginning over the sound of German bombers, the game of cat and mouse. Nostalgia trip, man.
Now you might question me for this pick. I remember back…

I somehow remembered the blog that Miller posted a couple of years ago, and I thought I'd make my own version :P
Sooo... here's a list of things that piss me off (there's no specific order, except for the last one) :
- Jonathan Irons not exactly looking at the player in the eyes
- Any Apple product (this is gonna trigger a lot of people lol)
- People who confuse between "its" and "it's" all the time
- Shazam not being able to identify some fucking awesome songs
- Double standards (these are soooo countless)
- Bulk acquired after years of training that disappears just because you skipped the gym for a couple of months
- Gym folks who think they can claim a piece of equipment by setting a towel on it before moving away
- So-called "drivers" who don't use turn signals
A title update for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare has been released. As an effort to make these updates more known, I'm attempting to create blog posts with the notes on them. Also good for archival reasons. Hopefully this time I won't get lazy.
This update was rather small however did have game altering changes. The VPR has now had a hipfire accuracy decrease to even the playing field with other SMGs slightly. The R3K has had a decrease in delay between its bursts, increasing its firerate (Perhaps the change is modelled towards increasing the effectiveness of Stacked too?). Gun Game has been had the Raijin-EMX, Stallion .44 and Atlas added to it, and Infected has had an interesting new concept added in which the more infected there are, th…Read more >
