Why Call of Duty Black Ops 2 is the best CoD

Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 is a multiplayer campaign and zombies game that takes place in the future after the events of Black Ops 1. The campaign starts with flashbacks from Frank Woods from his missions while he was in the Studies and Observation Group  (SOG) with Alex Mason and Joseph Bowman. You would play as Alex Mason while Woods is telling his past to you. You would also play as Alex Manson’s son, David Mason, and would go on a mission with Mike Harper to find Raul Menendez and kill him. Raul Menendez also holds a grudge with Frank Woods because he accidentally killed his sister. The campaign, in my opinion, was fun to play.

The multiplayer function in Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 was also fun because the weapons and sniping was easy to use. 

Maps like Nuketown, Hijacked, and Raid were fun to play with friends because you could do snipers only and they were pretty small maps and you wouldn’t be moving around looking for people.

Some of the best parts of the game are the insanely good music. You could vibe to them.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 has many famous actors voicing characters in the game. Michael Keaton, who played Batman, voices Jason Hudson and Sam Worthington, who was a character in the Terminator, voices Alex Mason.  They also had Michael Rooker, who was a character in the Guardians of the Galaxy, voice Mike Harper. 

The bad parts of the game are that it didn’t have cross play and in the console version there are a lot of hackers. Also, you can mostly play on Xbox 1 or the new ones but you can’t play on the Xbox 360, but I don’t think there’s a lot of people who still play on that system. 

The tactical side of Black Ops 2 is what most of the pro players loved. The more recent games have focused more on gunfights and reaction times, but four years ago a good strategy could win you any match, even against the world champions. This created a gaming scene where you would expect to see something unexpected at every event. The maps were built perfectly and the game modes seemed to work perfectly. Even the create-a-class system, the pick 10 system, was a real mental game.

“Nowadays, everyone’s running all the same stuff, whereas back then you might be caught off guard if a team was using stun grenades, but then you’d use a tactical mask to counter. The game was so much more complex, but at the same time you could outclass a team for that reason,” according to Mike Stubbs on Eurogamer. You will still hear conversations about how Advanced Warfare was broken, or how Ghosts wasn’t that entertaining to watch. But whenever Black Ops 2 comes up, there is rarely a bad word spoken. 

The Zombies function of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 wasn’t as good as it could have been because of the consoles they were playable on. Maps like transit weren’t finished because of the limitations on the console’s hardware. Back then for whatever reason it was scary playing zombies as a younger person. Some maps weren’t fun, like Nuketown-Zombies, because you would have to wait for perks to fall out of the sky.
