What’s new in Black Ops 2 Multiplayer

by William Schwartz on August 7, 2012

The first gameplay footage for Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 Multiplayer was released earlier today. For Call of Duty fans that have been begging for change, it looks like Treyarch has gotten the message. The futuristic setting from the single player portion of the game, will be carrying over in a big way to the game’s multiplayer component.

Watching the trailer you’ll see a bunch of new equipment that is heading to multiplayer. Some of the new features include a giant mech, deployable cover, a guardian sentry, and a lot more. Continue on to the trailer and screenshot below to see what’s to expect when Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 releases on November 13th, 2012 for the Xbox 360, PC, and PlayStation 3.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 Multiplayer Trailer

See enemies through walls or smoke.

At around 0:20 you’ll get your first glimpse at a new type of gun that allows you to see enemy silhouettes through walls and then later, you’ll see the same weapons seeing enemies through smoke.

A new type of special grenade?

This special grenade looks to have an energy impact when it is deployed near an enemy.

Dolphin Diving is Back!

Fan favorite activity “Dolphin Diving” which took a hiatus for Modern Warfare 3, will return in Black Ops 2.


The Guardian Sentry appears to deploy some type of disorienting wave of energy which allows you to pick off your targets more easily.


Aka the Quad-Rotor Copter can deal death from above.

Futuristic Predator Missile

This futuristic predator drone dive bombs players on the battlefield, judging from the brief clip in the trailer.


This heavy mech called the A.G.R. is dropped from the sky onto the playing field and can easily overpower shielded enemies.


Tomahawks return in Black Ops 2. This guy got a face full of one.

Deployable Cover

Futuristic Riot Shields look like they can be deployed as stationary cover. Players can peek through the window on the shield to fire at enemies while in cover.

  • Meharch

    Meh Ops 2 kind of looks the same as all the other Call of Duty games to me.

  • Rumorman

    Please, can a moderator please ban this idiot. This trailer looks freaking sweet. I can’t wait to play this.

  • Mike Hunt

    I’m a pretty big anti-COD person, but this actually looks like it might be a good bit different than some of the other Call of Duty games. The futuristic setting didn’t appeal to me at all when they first showed it, but at least they are embracing it completely with all of the new weapons and gadgets. I wonder if the perks will be changed up as well?

  • Donald Trump

    I can’t wait for MW3 to come out again this year! I hope this game lags as bad as all the other COD!!

    There is nothing new in this video, what we just saw is the same shmit that has been sold to us the last few years.

  • Brevs

    Lol are you sure there is nothing new? Ignorant idiot. Just look at the article.

  • Brevs

    Sure dislike my previous comment. This website is full of idiots anyway. Who just go around disliking comments if they are going with CoD or going against BF or PS3 because everyones opinion is wrong if they don’t like BF or PS3. Right?

  • The Green Ring of Life

    I was thinking that I will probably get this game. The trailer was awesome but I wonder which console this will be better on? Ah who am I kidding, Treyarch raped the PS3 with Black Ops, I don’t see why Black Ops 2 would be any different.

    LMAO! XD Thanks I needed a good laugh…I’ve been having a rough week with job interviews! Lots of selfish, jealousy-hating, unhiring bastards out there these days…Hope they all FUCK in Hell!!!

  • The Future of Sega

    It’s amazing how some of you guys ALWAYS get thumbs down no matter what you say, good or bad…lol. Although I do think some people log in just to give thumbs down and PISS other people off.

    I personally think that Black Ops 2 offers a lot more and steps up from its original title.
    Even though I wouldn’t say it’s the most mind-blowing thing I’ve seen, I still appreciate all the nice changes and Treyarch’s effort to provide a better MP experience.
