Default Call of Duty: Black Ops "First Strike" Map Pack

It's been announced that CoD: BO will have a new map pack out in around two months with 4 vanilla multiplayer maps and another for the zombie game. The price tag is 1200ms points for Xbox users, which is about $15 if I recall correctly. One interesting statement is that some of the new maps were designed with sniping in mind.

All I want to know is whether players will be bombarded with annoying ads or errors if they choose not to buy the map pack like a certain other CoD title.

Here's the article.

Thanks for the link! I hope the new Zombie map has snow... That and new enemies .

The new zombie map is said to be an abandoned German reseach outpost in Antarctica.

Should've made it for CoD points and Prestige Levels instead. After all, they're useless once you purchase everything.

The 'free online multiplayer' on the ticker cracks me up every time I see it, but they say it's a jab at EA with their online pass nonsense along with Xbox Live subscription fees. It is said that it was supposed to cause a ruckass to draw criticism towards those two things, but everyone probably has their own opinion of that. You could argue that the EA pass thing is a valid measure, since the used game business is a pretty ambiguous thing, but from what I've seen it's mostly received with negativity by consumers.

Interesting to hear that they've built some of the new maps with sniping in mind, I wonder how they'll turn out. Saying that, I have no problem sniping on a few of the current maps while many of the people that I game with complain constantly about not being able to snipe effectively.

A new zombie map is always welcome too.

Regards,
Jake.

It's definitely not easy to snipe anymore with the death of 'quick-scoping', but as Red Corsairs had to say it's still very much possible to snipe. You might not get the top score, though, but a good K/D is still attainable.

My opinion, is that sniper rifles in Blck OPs aren't very effective. Not that people should be discouraged from using sniper rifles, but when I chose to do some sharpshooting I go with an M14 or FN FAL battle rifle with an ACOG. If you control your shots, you can get plenty of accurate long-range kills with them. Another added bonus is efficiency at close-range encounters. They're very flexible across the range board, but aren't particularly masters at any of them.

Still, I doubt I'll buy this map pack. If I do, it'll be the only pack purchased for CoD Black Ops since I know the game population will drop like a sack of dirt once the next CoD title is dumped off the assembly line in 2011.

The ACOG FAL is the best Sniper in the game hands down, closely followed by the ACOG M16. The M14 requires Grip to manage the recoil, losing out on hardened.

I just downloaded 1.04 - Oh my god, what the fuck were Treyarch doing? In 3 hours playing tonight, I had 43 minutes of gameplay left on a contract, and I got so pissed off with the fucked up lag (12 shots from a M14 to kill someone, hey?), increased hit box areas, and all that such that I finished it with 7 minutes still to go, and 15 Headshots out of 20 left (Started with 4).

After playing Fifa for the last few days and MoH before that near solid since its release, I thought it might just be my ability - but no, MoH went 23 for 4, 16 for 2, 19 for 4, 14 for 7 (they had an awesome Tier 1 Battle Rifle user, got 6 kills on me, 1 for 1 =/).

Then went MW2 - no issues with lag, went 19 for 12, 20 for 8, 12 for 3, 16 for 9, and finally got my first TDM MVP in 6 Prestiges.

Anyway, found this -

This made me laugh;

Admittedly the frame rate thing was dealt with rather quickly, but the other two were desperately in need of 1.04 (aside from multiple but small niggles).
Yes, because horrible knifing, unplayable lag, terrible hit detections and very poor spawning are all 'smaller niggles' than muted headsets.

To be honest I thought that MoH on release was at best a Beta standard game, but fuck me, it looks near perfect compared to it, and that's even with shitty servers.

After the fuck up that was World at War, and now this, if it's not adequately fixed, it will be the last Treyarch game I purchase on the merits of others and its taglines.
