Static Image on a “Quad Rotor Drone”?


The official website has only been online a few hours and already the speculation on strike over the next title in the Call of Duty series. Successful marketing can call it good. Admittedly, the site comes up very interesting and tempts one to speculate. But even more interesting than the actual page is the content and the resulting consequences.

If you look at the first of today to the final material, see the following:

Not really much right? Far from it! Taking apart the .gif-file and edit the individual images a bit so you get a much clearer picture that still allows for multiple interpretations:

While the thus extracted image appears at first glance like a surveillance camera, it seems to be a second glance at a „Quadrotor,“ acting on a small helicopter with four rotors.

The origin of the image is already settled.

The attentive viewer will notice that at the end FPSRussia indicating that he „had told his friends, the thing would find themselves in the next Call of Duty“. But it gets even better. In the final seconds of the video, a small logo can be seen: „A big thank you to my friends the makers of Call of Duty for sponsoring this video.“:

According FPSRussia is probably part of the marketing campaign and the video is edited!



Die offizielle Webseite ist erst seit wenigen Stunden online und schon überschlagen sich die Spekulationen über den kommenden Titel der Call of Duty-Reihe. Gelungenes Marketing kann man das wohl nennen. Zugegebenermaßen ist die Seite außerordentlich interessant aufgebaut und drängt einen förmlich zu den Spekulationen. Doch noch interessanter als die eigentliche Seite ist ihr Inhalt und die sich daraus ergebenden Konsequenzen.

Wer sich zunächst einmal das heute freigeschaltete Material anschaut, sieht Folgendes:

Nicht wirklich viel oder? Weit gefehlt! Nimmt man die .gif-Datei auseinander und bearbeitet die einzelnen Bilder ein wenig, so erhält man ein wesentlich klareres Bild, das immer noch mehrere Interpretationen zulässt:

Während das so extrahierte Bild auf den ersten Blick wie eine Überwachungskamera aussieht, scheint es sich auf den zweiten Blick um einen „Quadrotor“ zu deutsch Quadrokopter, einen kleinen Helikopter mit 4 Rotoren, zu handeln.

Die Herkunft des Bildes ist auch schon geklärt

Dem aufmerksamen Zuschauer wird aufgefallen sein, dass FPSRussia am Ende darauf hinweist, dass ihm „seine Freunde gesagt hätten, das Ding fände sich im nächsten Call of Duty“. Doch es kommt noch besser. In den letzten Sekunden des Videos ist ein kleiner Schriftzug zu erkennen: „Ein großes Danke gilt meinen Freunden, den Machern von Call of Duty, für das Sponsern dieses Videos“:

Demnach ist FPSRussia wohl Teil der Marketingkampagne und das Video nachbearbeitet!



More Black Ops 2 Details Emerge for MULTIPLAYER

Devloping Story.. 

First things first. None of this is confirmed yet. We believe that the “Leaked Poster” is 100% real. These Multiplayer details came from the same source, therefore we believe there might be SOME truth in these multiplayer details. Keep in mind that Multiplayer is fine tuned all the way till the game’s release, so there’s a chance that some of these or ALL of these things will be changed prior to launch (assuming it’s real). For now, just assume these are MP ideas until everything is confirmed during CoD: XP..

MORE DETAILS from the Same “Poster Leak Source”:

NEW Game Modes:
Escort ~ A game mode in which you escort a player across three flags to achieve victory. The enemy team killing the player will result in a win for their side.

Split Spawn ~ A game mode in which you spawn from a hellicopter, and climb down to get to the ground. The player starts with 3 lives. One player can control the chopper to let you climb down in different areas, as well as shoot from the chopper. If the chopper is destroyed, players can no longer spawn. Players compete for a central flag that takes 2x as long to capture than a regular domination flag. Either the death of all opposing players or the capturing of the flag will grant you a win. This game has 2 rounds.

Equalizer ~ A game mode in which players are switched to the enemy team upon death. Players will compete for a flag, which when owned, open up a power plant to allow the player to customize their class in game, get new weapons, and put on a juggernaut suit for their team only.When there are 2 players left on a team, they are granted with the power plant automatically, and pointstreaks up to a 5 point requirement can also be obtained. If either of the two players die, they will remain on their own team. The team with the most converts (kills) at the end will win. If tied, whoever is currently owning the power plant will win.

-Perks- (Only new and modified!) (Perk slot not yet defined!)

To clarify what elite is, it is a side-pro perk you can choose when leveling up the base perk. These elite perks ONLY work if paired with another BASE perk.

1. Spy – Appear as a friend on the map. (Disadvantage is, you’re always spotted even without a UAV, and when shooting, you turn red on the map)

b. Pro – Detect enemy spies. They will still always be spotted on the radar.

c. Elite – If Pilot is active, your airship will be marked as an ally.

2. Escape Artist – When going prone, you feign death (You cannot shoot during)

b. Pro – When approaching death, the enemies crosshairs will turn to white, and your name will dissapear.

c. Elite – if Diver is active – You realistically fall into your feign death instead of diving.

3. Audiophile – Players with silenced weapons will show on your radar if they are shooting at you or close around you.

b. Pro – Footsteps are louder

c. Elite – If bladesman is active – kniving will show up on the radar

4. Defuser – Throw all equipment but cookable grenades up to 2x farther – a hollow circle will show up around your crosshairs, and the circle will fill in 3 seconds. When the circle is full, it will throw 2x farther, when it is empty, it will throw 1x as far.

b. Pro – Be able to take semtex off of players and throw them elsewhere, and be able to pick up any enemy equipment and use it as your own.

c. Elite – if quickdraw is active – the circle will fill in 1.5 seconds.

5. Juggernaut – Regenerate health faster while moving

b. Pro – Regenerate health faster while crouched

c. Elite – If scavenger is active – you are able to drop ammo packs for your team.

7. Pilot – Your flying killstreak’s kills will count towards your next killstreak.

c. Elite – With blind eye active – Your uncontrollable flying killstreaks will not show on the map.

8. Technician – Any land killstreak’s kills will count towards your next killstreak.

b. Pro – Your Advnaced UAVS will disable the enemies UAV

c. Elite – If defuser is active, your sentries cannot be taken down instantly.

9. Bladesman – You have 2 knives in each hand instead of just one in one hand. (This essentially makes knives kill twice as fast.)

b. Pro – You have a chance of dodging the incoming players knife.

c. Elite – If assasin is active – kniving will be completely silent and not show on the killfeed, unless countered by audiophile elite.

10. Conciousness – While standing, you are just as accurate as when you are prone

b. Pro – Your bullets cause more flinching.

c. Elite – If marksman is active – shooting your enemy will mark him on the mini map.

c. Elite – If stalker is active – when jumping, equipment does less damage to you.

b. Pro – Your bullets gain 50% damage with each person they go through.

c. Elite – if steady aim is active – when hip-firing, your bullets have 10% more damage with each person they go through.

–Knife Melee Slot–

1. Default Knife – takes 2 swipes to kill, you need to put it away, and take it back out like usual.

2. Tactical knife – takes 4 swipes to kill, as long as you are pushing the melee button however, it will keep knifing

3. Tactical hammer – takes longer to get out, takes 4 swipes to kill, you need to put it away and take it back out like usual, but against riot shields and machines it takes only 1 swipe to destroy.

4. Throwing knifes – Start with 4, fast to get out, fairly accurate, but takes 2 to kill and is ranged

5. Tomahawks – Start with 2, slow to get out, fairly innacurate, and takes 1 to kill and is ranged

6. Ballistic knife – [Disallows use of equipment] – A tactical knife in one hand, while a ballistic knife is in the other. You start with 2 ballistic knives, and they kill in 1 shot. These knives take a moderate time to get out. (With Bladesman on, you start with 3 ballistic knives and one ballistic knife in each hand.)

This Year’s ‘Total Solar Eclipse’ is on Tuesday Nov. 13th


Coincidence? Or just clever marketing?

It’s no secret now that Call of Duty has something to do with the word ECLIPSE. Is it part of the title? Marketing tactic? GameStop Promotion? We won’t know for sure till May 2nd.

What we DO know, is that new game releases ALWAYS happen on a Tuesday. Past Call of Duty games have always been the 2nd or 3rd week of November, however this year Halo 4 snagged the Nov 6th date, which means we’ll be betting our hard earned money that Nov 13th will be the release date.


Zufall? Oder einfach nur cleveres Marketing?

Es ist kein Geheimnis mehr dass das nächste Call of Duty irgendwas mit dem Wort ECLIPSE zu tun hat. Ist es ein Teil des Titels? Marketing Taktik? Eine GameStop Aktion? Bis zum 2. Mai werden wir es nicht genau wissen.

Was wir im Moment wissen ist dass die neuen Teile immer an einem Dienstag erscheinen. Frühere Call of Duty Teile kamen immer in der zweiten oder dritten Woche des Novembers, aber dieses Jahr hat sich Halo 4 den 6. November geschnappt, was heißt dass wir mit unserem hart verdienten Geld wetten können, dass der 13. November der Release Termin für das nächste Call of Duty ist.

“Call of Duty: ECLIPSE” first surfaced on March 8th on Norwegian Game Store


The Member “I_Big_Deano_!” of a Forum did some digging last night and located a video on YouTube and found the first sighting of “Call of Duty:ECLIPSE”… a video that was PUBLISHED on MARCH 8th. is a popular Norwegian Game Store that offers pre-orders for games and more. The video description provided a link to the actual pre-order which has now been changed to “BLACK OP 2″. Still confused? because we are. Only 11 more days till we find out the truth.

„I_Big_Deano_!“, das Mitglied aus einem Forum, hat sich in der letzten Nacht mal ein wenig umgeschaut, und in einem Video auf YouTube und fand er die erste Sichtung von „Call of Duty: ECLIPSE“ … ein Video, das am 8. März veröffentlicht wurde. ist ein beliebter norwegischer Game Store, der die Vorbestellungen für Spiele und vieles mehr anbietet. In der Video-Beschreibung ist ein Link zu dem eigentlichen Pre-Order zu finden, der nun auf „Black Op 2“ geändert wurde. Immer noch verwirrt? Denn wir sind es. Nur noch 11 Tage bis wir die Wahrheit erfahren.

CONFIRMED: Black Ops 2 aka “ECLIPSE” According to GameStop


Activision has officially begun their assault on your hard earned money, and GameStop is firing the first shot. We’ve seen the marketing material. We’ll tell you what we know to seperate fact from fiction.

-Today is the day marketing begins, GameStop was instructed to put up the “05-02-12″ marketing material starting today.
-GameStop received marketing material from Activision approximately 2 weeks ago.
-On the marketing instructions, it clearly says “Activision Classified Game: ECLIPSE”
-At the bottom of the material it indicates “Classified Call of Duty Game” in small print (on all pages).
-Lots of large Banners and more marketing on May 2nd are going up.
-All the Box art is blurred out along with the names and systems except for one, which says “ECLIPSE

Not Confirmed Yet:
-They still have no idea when pre-orders will start.
-Trailer of some kind on May 2nd.
-From the looks of it and the opinion of GameStop employees, Eclipse should have been blurred out with the rest but wasnt for some reason.
-According to one GameStop manager, the blurred character is the same guy from Black Ops box art (posing different, different gun)

Here’s the million dollar question. “So is it Black Ops 2? Is it Call of Duty: ECLIPSE? Is it Black Ops 2: ECLIPSE?”… we’ll be finding out very soon



Activision hat offiziell ihren Angriff auf Ihr hart verdientes Geld begonnen, und GameStop ist die erste Abgabe. Wir haben das Marketing-Material zu sehen bekommen. Wir sagen euch, was wir wissen, um Fakten von Fiktion zu trennen.

-Heute ist der Tag an dem das Marketing beginnt, GameStop wurde anufgefordert, in Aufmachungen des „05-02-12“ Marketing-Material ab heute aufzustellen.
-GameStop hat das Marketing-Material von Activision vor ca. 2 Wochen erhalten.
-Auf den Marketing-Anweisungen, sagt es deutlich “Activision Classified Game: ECLIPSE”
-An der Unterseite des Materials in kleiner Schrift “Classified Call of Duty Game” (on all pages).
-Viele große Banner und mehr Marketing starten am 2. Mai.
-Die ganze Box-Art wird zusammen mit den Namen und Systemen mit Ausnahme eines verschwommenen, zeigen “ECLIPSE

Noch nicht bestätigt:
-Sie haben immer noch keine Ahnung, wann die Vorbestellungen beginnen.
-Trailer in irgendeiner Form am 2. Mai.
-Von den Blicken von ihm und der Stellungnahme des GameStop Mitarbeiter, sollte Eclipse unscharf gemacht werden, wurde es aber nicht.
-Nach einem GameStop-Manager zufolge ist der verschwommene Charakter der gleiche Typ von dem Black Ops Cover (andere Haltung, andere Waffe)

Hier ist die Millionen-Dollar-Frage. “Ist es Black Ops 2? Ist es Call of Duty: ECLIPSE? Ist es Black Ops 2: ECLIPSE?”… wir werden es sehr bald heraus finden
