— Description

Wide-Area Misdirect (initially Misdirect prior to being upgraded) is a Chaos cyber core in Call of Duty: Black Ops III. The upgraded version extends the size of the simulated attack, affecting a large area.


One of the more unusual cores, Misdirect projects an array of orange holographic Talons into the surrounding area, usually making enemies shoot around the player and instead at the projections. There's a decent chance of the enemies still attacking the player during the simulation; it is more of an experimental ability than a serious choice for gameplay.
