Black Ops 3 Double XP for MP & Zombies Coming This Weekend

Surprise, surprise – Treyarch has officially announced that this weekend they will be activating yet another double XP event. This one is starting tomorrow (February 26th) and running through Monday, February 29th. And, yes, it applies to both multiplayer matches AND to zombies. This event will give players a chance to blast through ranks, hit higher prestige levels, and, if you’re already at master prestige, keep making progress toward that coveted level 1000 to look like a complete no-life…erm, I mean… bad ass.

YouTubers Help Boost Call of Duty’s Microtransaction Gambling System

I know I’m probably going to come under a lot of heat for this, but it’s something I feel needs to be said. Famous Youtubers are helping to destroy Call of Duty (and countless other games) for all gamers. How? By continuously contributing to and encouraging the use of microtransactions. The past couple of CoD titles – Advanced Warfare and Black Ops 3 – are perfect examples of this. Sledgehammer Games introduced the concept of Supply Drops, an in-game rewards system that allows players to swap either in-game currency or, worse, actual cash for a chance at getting new...

Black Ops 3 NX ShadowClaw Weapon Overview

The crossbow makes a return in Black Ops 3…well, sort of. It’s not the traditional crossbow we’ve seen in the first two installments of Treyarch’s popular CoD franchise. The NX ShadowClaw is a more compact and silently deadly weapon than its predecessors. This is a special secondary weapon that can only be received through supply drops. The ShadowClaw deals high damage, allows the player to remain off the radar, and works fairly well in mid-range encounters. With the right attachments equipped and perks selected it becomes an incredibly lethal weapon that many believe is extremely overpowered. NX ShadowClaw Stats...
