Call of Duty: Black Ops Wiki
Call of Duty Black Ops was released November of 2010 and is the first CoD title to be set in the Cold War era. You play as the protagonist Alex Mason who is involved in a conspiracy to uncover Reznov, who was one of the protagonists of CoD 5, World at War. Call of Duty Black Ops features many new game mechanics, modes, and perks to keep you playing this game for years to come.
In Multiplayer mode, there is a new currency called CoD points, which are used to purchase anything from Playercards, guns, attachments, perks, and even Emblem layers. Yes, you can now make your own playercard emblem, which can be anything you can assemble using all the various shapes and symbols up to 15 layers, so be creative!
Hardcore mode makes a return, which is the realistic mode where even a pistol bullet kills, and no HUD, makes for a more frantic and realistic game. Zombies makes a return as well, and although they aren't Nazi Zombies, they're still just as deadly.
The new Pro Perks gives players the opportunity to specialize in a certain perk and gain the benefits of the pro perk. Pro Perks can be difficult to get, and require three challenges to be completed before you can unlock and then buy for 3000 CoD Points.
Gambling mode is a first, where you play minigames like Sticks and Stones, Gun Game, One in the Chamber, and win to get more CoD points. These games are quite fun to do, and you can show off your gun skills in one of four game modes available.
Black Ops features tons of DLC, from map packs to even a special Zombie Map Pack. Be sure to get your DLC content from your respective console's store.
Black Ops is a fun title that is still fun to play today, so be sure to try it out.
