Recently on the wiki, I've seen a lot of controversy over the return of Frank Woods in Call of Duty: Black Ops II, with many questioning how Woods could survive a point blank explosion involving no less than five grenades strapped to Lev Kravchenko.

One theory is that Mason imagined it, but why he'd imagine an explosion is beyond me.

However, revisiting the level Payback, and studying the room in which the explosion goes off, I've come up with two theories:


  1. So here is where Woods and Kravchenko crashed through the window roughly.
  2. One idea is that they hit these wires here, causing the two to separate, giving Woods a chance to survive.
  3. Or they could have hit the boxes here and split, and so the crates would have shielded Woods.

Look forward to hearing your thoughts on these theories.
