    • To our players experiencing trouble starting full Blackout and MP matches in certain areas at specific times of the day (parts of South America, South Africa, Australia, Asia, and the Middle East): we hear you. We are investigating multiple options to give everyone the best possible experience by connecting players to the closest well-populated server with without negatively impacting other players on that server. Please stay tuned as we roll out updates to help alleviate this issue.
  • Zombies Weapon Camos
    • Gold, Diamond, and Dark Matter camos will be coming to Zombies in a future update. We hear you loud and clear.
  • Hosts Exiting Zombies
    • We are aware of players’ games ending when the host exits. We’re working on a solution and will update you with further details soon.

    I hate kids that are constantly whining!
    Since MW1, They have finally made a game worth playing again!
    The last decade seemed to be in honor of All those complaining little ass whipes!
    Look at Fortnite, claimed to be a shooter But All I see is people being scared and build a Fucking castle to ensure They are safe in times their reaction and skills of actual aiming at the enemy Has let them down.. once again. Only in building a stupid wall They have immediatly put them selves offside of playing a Fucking shooter.. you aint bob the builder! Hell this aint minecraft! If you are getting shot from behind, it Just means you have not cleared the area! You have NO situational awareness! You lack tactics, moving from cover to cover.. Hell, you Just suck as a human completely!

    Just as The Call of Duty franchise Has been milked out the last decade, All you whiny bitches have been sucking on Your momma’s tiet for too long, milking her out too!

    Why not just make it so you don’t even have to fire a sniper rifle? Just glance in the enemies general direction and they die. That’s what the little kids quick-scoping want, right?

    • Oclexe October 19, 2018 | Reply

      lol thats good. although it would make getting gold on the outlaw 10x easier that gun is trash

      I mean a sniper should be that strong honestly ??‍♂️They just aren’t consistent to where they said the one shots should be For them the game just has a lot of problems

    • Pretty WoLF October 19, 2018 | Reply

      Do you think the snipers wouldn’t be such a problem if the guns kill quicker?

    • Vheda October 19, 2018 | Reply

      you just trash bruh

    • Plattt October 19, 2018 | Reply

      Thats how it is already. If youve played MP you get spawn camped until you quit

    • OutLawd October 19, 2018 | Reply

      Dunno what game mode you’ve been playing but snipers are pretty meh compared to well… pretty much anything. If you want to win games just get an SMG or AR, hell even a shotgun or LMG is far more deadly than a sniper is.

      If snipers is an issue to you in this game you doing something seriously wrong in terms of movement/positioning/game sense.

    Trash. They need to fix bugs and crashes before doing things like this.
