Ross Deason

OpTic Gaming’s Anthony ‘Methodz’ Zinni has released a Q&A video about Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 after getting his hands on it at the community reveal event.

Methodz joined OpTic Gaming prior to the start of Season 2 of the CWL Pro League along with Sam ‘Octane’ Larew, replacing long term members Damon ‘Karma’ Barlow and Matthew ‘FormaL’ Piper.

On May 17th he got the opportunity to go out to the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 community reveal and got the chance to get some hands on experience with the game itself.

Naturally, he was inundated with questions about everything from the new recoil patterns to the movement system and the time to kill given the new health values.

Instead of answering the same questions hundreds of times, the CWL Atlanta MVP decided to release a video where he answered the most common questions, starting with the new health system with 150hp and manual healing.

“I think people are definitely overthinking how drastic it’s going to be. It’s essentially just like auto regen but you actually have to trigger it and I think it’s gonna add for some cool plays. […]

It’s a really fast process, it’s not like other games where you’re sitting there bandaging up, you pretty much stab yourself and your health starts going up.”

Methodz does state that the time to kill does feel a little bit longer, noting that he felt it the most when using submachine guns. However, he sums it up by saying that the game feels like a Treyarch game, like “Black Ops 2.5”.

He also confirms that the speed of the game is as fast as it seems in videos released so far but does note that this could change by the time the full game is released.

“You gotta keep in mind we played a pre-alpha build so the game will change […] but the game was extremely fast. So you guys saw the slide feature, it’s pretty much the Black Ops 3 slide but it seems like it goes a little further and a little faster so I think, personally, there should be a tiny tweak to the slide”.

Next the OpTic star discusses the new maps, saying that they feel like they have been designed for the 5 vs. 5 public matches that were announced during the reveal and says that they felt good so far.

The rest of the Q&A discusses everything from player roles to new game modes, like Blackout Battle Royale, and the new specialists and attachments.
