Outriders 101

The game provides four distinct character classes to players: Devastator, Pyromancer, Technomancer, and Trickster. A player cannot change the class once they start the game. The character has super abilities and can be upgraded as you play. There are a wide variety of weapons. The weapons effectiveness is modified by the character class of the player.

Devastator

The Devastator is the tank class. At close range this class is incredibly powerful. Playing through as either a defensive tank, offensive tank, or something in between is up to the player.

Pyromancer

The Pyromancer is the mage class. This is a mid range attack class. This class uses fire to attack players. The attacks damage opponents and create status effects.

Technomancer

The Technomancer is the healing class. This is a long range support class. The class allows the player to heal themselves and others. They have access to various technology gadgets.

Trickster

The Trickster is the rogue class. A very agile class that deals a lot of damage quickly. This class has the ability to slow down time.

 


 

Cold War Express Map

Cold War Express Map

Treyarch released the Black Ops Cold War Express map on February 4th, 2021. This is the re-release of the COD Black Ops 2 Express map. According to Drift0r it is a one to one duplicate. The map is set in the future of Los Angeles. It is a medium sized map and is symmetrical. The layout is in the shape of the letter “U”. There is an interior section to the train station and a section that is outside. A set of train tracks divide these two areas and bisect the map. One train is not moving. One train is actively running. The active train can eliminate players. Watch out for the barriers that move to indicate a train is approaching.

Show mini map of Express

Cold War Express Mini Map

Tactics

The train station is an open space compared to the exterior part of the map. There are multiple places to take cover when crossing the open areas. The strongest overwatch position in this area is the lift at the top of the mini map. Players who do not check for enemies at that location will not make it across the inside of the train station.

There is an office in the center of the map that overlooks the middle of the map. This is a high traffic area. Each side of the office is a short hallway that leads to a staircase. Follow the staircase to reach the bridges that overwatch the train tracks.

The bridges offer a great position to snipe long avenues as people wait for the train to pass. The roof of the train also provides access to the bridges. Don’t cross the train tracks without checking the bridges for enemies.

A control room is on the bottom of the minimap of Express. The control room has a strong advantage over the outside portion of the map. Jump up through the windows or climb the ladder in the locker room to reach it. Players who do not check for enemies at this location will regret it.

Even though there are outdoor elements to this map, it’s wise to invest in interior style scorestreaks. So, for instance, avoid aerial attack style score streaks. Using smoke grenades to cross the open parts of the map is the 200 IQ move.

Nuketown 84 Secrets revealed

How To Complete The Nuketown 84 Easter Egg Secrets

Nuketown ’84 Secret Easter Eggs

This is how to complete Nuketown 84 Easter Egg Secrets. You have to be ready as soon as the match begins. Then as fast as you can, shoot all the heads off of the mannequins on the map. The mannequins spawn in different locations every game and there are a different amount of mannequins each game. In older Nuketown maps there was a 90 second time limit to complete the Easter Egg. But, in this COD Black Ops Cold War Nuketown ’84 map, you have closer to 2 full minutes. This Easter egg is easier with friends and if done in custom game modes. The Easter egg has two variations that seem to be completely random.

In this video, Bruno completes the Easter egg and shows the variations of both secrets on Nuketown ’84.

Check out our other COD Black Ops Cold War information and secrets. Also don’t forget to check out the official Call of Duty blog post about the Black Ops Cold War version of Nuketown.
