A host of new camos, reticles and features are being added into Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 as a part of the game’s newly announced microtransaction system.
Activision and Treyarch have added what they’re referring to as “micro items” rather than microtransactions. None of these purchases will be game-changing in any way, in that they won’t alter the way you play the game or provide you with an edge, but they will allow you to “enhance your online experience” by giving you more ways to personalize your playstyle beyond your emblem.
The new micro items include:
- New weapon camouflages.
- New “Flags of the World” Calling Cards
- New Weapon Sight Reticles
- Ten Extra Create-a-Class slots
You’ll now be able to pay 160 more Microsoft points ($2) to get ten more Create-a-Class slots for emblems, films, and screenshots. “Flags of the World Calling Card Packs” are available for 80 points ($1) per regional pack.
Finally, “Personalization Packs” let you customize your weapon, Calling Card, and reticle for 160 points ($2), “Bacon personalization pack” above as a very weird example. It’s like a free-to-play model, except you also pay a bunch for the game! At least this stuff is optional, and isn’t consumable.
You can view all images of the new reticles, new camos and calling cards in the slideshow below.
As you can imagine, covering your gun in dollar bills or bacon seems like a great way to piss off your opponents. Expect to see players running around in the next few days.
