Black Ops over Modern Warfare 2
Call of Duty has created a great selection of games for various consoles, but the most recent
debate is between Infinity ward’s Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and Treyarch’s Call Of Duty: Black
Ops. Although Black Ops is the most recent Call Of Duty game many players still enjoy the experience
that is offered through the Modern Warfare 2. I personally believe that Black Ops is much better than
Modern Warfare 2, but there are those who think otherwise.
Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 came out on November 18, 2009 a year older than the newer
Call of Duty: Black Ops which was released on November 9, 2010. As you probably already know the
older the game; the crapier the graphics. There are those who believe that Modern Warfare has better
graphics than Black Ops, but Black Ops is more up to date due to the extra year and experience in past
year games such as Modern Warfare 2.
Call Of Duty: Black Ops incorporated a very special way for the player to personalize their guns,
this is something that Modern Warfare 2 lacked. Black Ops has a way for the player to customize their
own emblem. Modern Warfare 2 only had a list of emblems from which the player could choose from.
Black Ops also created a very sophisticated form of currency which you can use to purchase everywhere
from guns and attachments to emblems and backgrounds. The player has the power to be unique. Also
once the player passes all the prestige you can purchase gold camo for your gun!
Another great aspect of Black Ops is the simplicity of the actual game. I personally find Modern
Warfare 2 to be difficult to the gameplay action. Black Ops on the other hand is easier and there are
noobs (in other words people who don’t know how to play) and the Black Ops player can beat them
during the intense gameplay action.
Kill-Streaks play a big role in this game because it is something to show off to your friends. Kill-
streaks are acquired by getting kills without dying. You get to buy and choose three kill-streaks from the
list provided. The kill-streaks are: for three kills are RC-XD and spy plane; for four kills are counter-
spyplanes and SAM-turrets; for five kills are Care Package and Napalm Strike; for six kills are sentry gun
and mortar team; for seven kills are Attack Helicopter and Valkyrie Rockets; for eight kills Black Bird and
Rolling Thunder; for nine kills are Chopper Gunner, for eleven kills are Attack Dogs and Gunship. It really
says something about yourself when you show your friends that you have acquired Attack Dogs.
Sniping is very intense in Black Ops, yet it is also simple. Sniping in Modern Warfare 2 is a big
pain due to the reason that most of the Sniper rifles are not that powerful. One has to use perks which
affect the player in positive ways, but also removes the stealthy feeling behind sniping because you are
not immune to radars when using these perks. Black Ops has very sophisticated Sniper rifles and allow
the player to use a perk which intensifies the sniping experience and allows him to be stealthy because
of the perk that makes the player immune to any enemy spy-planes (radar).
Black Ops also introduced the Wager Matches. This is were a player is able to gamble their
money they have earned in intense games like Sticks and Stones, Gun Game, One in the Chamber, and
Sharpshooter. These games are very entertaining especially when you are playing your friends for each
Call Of Duty: Black Ops also has a great Zombie mode gameplay. Zombies has been a great thing
that Treyarch incorporates in their Call Of Duty Games. Zombie mode is basically a survival mode were
you survive waves of zombies in the most creepiest places ever. You can play this mode with four of
your friends which increases the gameplay experience greatly and it also intensifies it.
Call Of Duty: Black Ops is the best gameplay action than that of Modern Warfare 2. Next time
you are asked if Modern Warfare 2 is better than Black Ops you should answer, “NO way Black Ops is
