Treyarch has released a new Call of Duty: Black Ops video that debuts the new “Wager Match” mode. In these matches you are wagering in-game money that you will finish in the top 3 on the leaderboard. The Top 3 folks get the cash and everyone else gets… NADA. These game modes really speak to the in-game economy that Treyarch is trying to create for Call of Duty: Black Ops.
These modes are nuts, “One In The Chamber” starts each player with only one bullet and if you shoot at someone and miss then you only have melee, but if you kill someone then you get their bullet. In “Gun Game“, everyone starts with a pistol and with each kill your weapon gets upgraded to a better one, but be careful because if you get knifed then you go back down a level. The first person to get all the weapons in this mode wins. In “Sticks And Stones“, you are equipped with a crossbow and a ballistic knife and a tomahawk. The trick here is that if you kill someone with the tomahawk then you bankrupt them and take all their money. In “Sharpshooter” mode, everyone starts out with the same weapon but at a predetermined interval everyone will switch to the next weapon. The more kills you get the more perks and skill multipliers you can get. To be good in “Sharpshooter” mode you are going to have to learn to be proficient with every weapon, no more relying on your favorite gun folks. Keep in mind that these modes are separate from normal ranked progression and online competitive player. In these modes I guess you have to ask yourself are you feeling lucky?
Just so all you folks know, wager mode is only for in-game use there isn’t really money involved, sorry gamblers. Are you excited about this or what? Expect tons more COD: Black Ops news to be dropping in the next few weeks and we will have it all right here for you.
