A member from Shacknews, Garnet Lee (who was invited to the MP play session), uploaded a podcast which revealed massive changes made to Black Ops 2 multiplayer. The podcast has now been edited and re-uploaded and all the details have been removed. However some details were heard, these being:
- 10 point allocation system replaces primary/secondary/grenades slot system Guns, attachments, equipment, perks take up allocation points.
- This point system could therefore allow your player to have 2 primary weapons, but only enough points for one perk, or alternately spawn with no weapons and load up on equipment and perks. This seems somewhat similar to Homefront’s perk system.
- New wager match variations.
- the example given was “EMP: Massive free-for-all where everyone is in a drone.”.
David Vonderhaar once said in a behind the scenes video, “create a class is sweet.. choose what’s the most important things to you, and forget about the things that are not important…This will open up doors for playstyles you have not seen. It’s going to be fantastic.”
