Forums - Gaming Discussion - Blackout Beta discussion thread

I'm away on holidays but even if i wasn't i probably wouldn't be playing this as i don't want to pre order. I've been watching some livestreams on YouTube and it looks really good. So anybody that's played it please post your opinions. 

 

Also interested to know if anything from cod4 and mw2 made it in. From what I'm seeing it's mostly black ops locations and waw with a focus on zombie maps. Would I be right in saying this?

Looks good from what I've watched. I'll play it on Thursday when it out for xbox.
Treyarch said it's possible they might add stuff from non treyarch cods but not likely.

Oh right so trey arch only. If infinity ward are making next years cod that will be awesome. Cod4, mw2 and mw3 maps. I'd fookin love that. 



I have no interest in the game nor will I be buying it even if it's Gods newest gift to gaming but I did watch the IGN stream and it looked like COD but empty and ... frustrating. Very frustrating, the first person camera and FoV does not lend itself well to the BR genre. I felt suffocated watching the guy play. The speed also, it just doesn't fit. This could add tension, create cheap kills or perhaps all work to be the best CoD game mode yet. I dunno but I certainly won't be buying it.



 

China Numba wan!!

Ok so when I started playing the beta I was not enjoying it but after playing more and getting used to the mode I really like it. Gunplay feels great, guns feel great also. The only concern I have is that it's 89 players instead of 100 but I that hinkle they will have 100 at launch. Also the level 3 gear is OP.

Been watching a little... It looks pretty good tbh. Pacing looks quicker than pubg but not quite as quick as fortnite though.

Vehicles are pretty weak, can be shot down rather quickly. Helicopters would be trash in squads. You'd be melted. Should be a bit more resistant in duo's and squads but decently balanced for solo's.

That rc though... It's just.... Cheap as does the noob tube. I'll consider getting it if I see it second hand or if it's first sale price, black Friday on the Xbox store is good otherwise I'll skip it like I've skipped cod for the last.... Ever.



Played around 4 hours last night and I have to give it to Treyarch, this is the best battle royale experience I've got so far, and I've played my share of BRs. My mates are also enjoying it tremendously. Wouldn't be surprised if this becomes the best selling COD ever simply because of Blackout.

P.S.: Don't expect a real discussion in regards to a COD game on this site, it's filled with negativity towards the franchise and there will be people talking it down even thought they haven't played and have no intention of playing BO4/Blackout, as seen in one of the earlier replies in this thread.

I feel the more I play the more I enjoy it. My first hour of plating was not fun then I played more yesterday and started enjoying it. Played it today and I've been loving it. This will probably be my go to BR game from here on out. On top of that I really like the multiplayer.

I'm the opposite, the more I play the more I find it frustrating. Weirdly my main thought it, it's not CoD. Even as a CoD BR it doesn't feel like CoD but PubG with CoD guns. Then the Beta for MP didn't feel like CoD either.

I think BR games are not for me, the idea of either landing and dieing because you can't find a gun, walking around for 10 minutes then getting shot in the back without warning or knowledge, or even reaction time or 20 minutes of not seeing a soul. They need to do something about the time to kill, I melt yet and wearing armour.



Hmm, pie.

It looks better than expected could be huge.
