If you’ve been playing Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 the past few days, you have no doubt noticed that a new Specialist by the name of Zero has made her way into the game. In case you’re not familiar with her abilities, we posted a quick guide on what Specialist abilities she can destroy, what scorestreaks she can hack and more.
Needless to say, with Zero’s hacking ability affecting the entire map wherever she is, and lasting for a long duration (30 seconds), this has made a lot of players quite annoyed with game developer Treyarch. Over on Reddit, countless threads have popped up sharing their distaste over this new Specialist, with more being posted everyday. User Gpbroseph made a lengthy post about it, and summed it up quite nicely. We’ve included some choice excerpts below.
Zero’s Ice Pick sounds excellent on paper and to be fair, I think it would make a decent scorestreak such as the Power Core from BO2; but the only reason that would work is because you would have to earn it. Even then the Power Core only destroyed streaks and prevented you from calling them in. Now with the addition of Zero, not only can you destroy enemy scorestreaks, destroy/steal enemy equipment, AND hack every single enemy player, but now you can take control of a 1000 point Drone Squad AND a 1300 point Attack Chopper for simply being in the game long enough to obtain a specialist ability?? Not to mention that in hardcore, when you’re hacked you can’t see your teammate’s blue names above their head. Who in the world thought this would be a good idea?
Lastly, I’ve never really been one for a no specialist playlist, I think the specialists are a cool, fun addition to the game and I enjoy the different play styles associated with each individual specialist. On the other hand, I can see how certain people find specialists annoying, cheap, and “noob friendly”. With the current state and raw strength of the Ice Pick, there absolutley needs to be a no specialist playlist. Treyarch, the players want to be rewarded for their skill and time played, that’s why we play your game in the first place! For all of the struggle and skill it takes to earn these “”devastating scorestreaks””, how easy it is to destroy them just because you “””earned””” it by existing in the game long enough is just flat out unbalanced and overpowered.
Simply put, Zero’s addition to the game benefits no one, not skilled players, not new players, and especially not anyone in between. I recognize that Treyarch likely isn’t going to completely remove a specialist they just added to the game, but the Ice Pick needs to go back to the drawing board before other players end up logging off for good. In the meantime, I will be playing Rocket League and I encourage all of you to do the same. Let me know what you think about the Ice Pick, I am eager for this issue to be discussed and debated and hopefully soon, resolved.
He’s not the only one. There are videos and memes of Zero being unbalanced that’s circulating now. Reddit user johnny_no_smiles shares this thoughts and compares it to the Blackhat equipment in Black Ops 3 stating:
The black hat equipment was a thing in black ops 3 for all of 10 seconds until it got nerfed into oblivion. It got nerfed heavily when zeros abilities are more than a thousand times stronger. The scorestreaks in black ops 3 totally destroyed the enemy, black ops 4 streaks are trash by comparison and now 1/3 of the opposition can effortlessly steal/insta kill them while camping in their own spawn building… Can anyone explain how this is balanced? Can anyone give me a single reason i would use torque when his best equipment can be totalled by zeros first and stolen by her second? If you think having her position given away is a counter youre deluded. 99% of people start hacking from a fresh spawn. Meaning for me to stop that hack i have to rush into their spawn kill her before she hacks and leave without getting mowed by one of the other teammates spawning. most likely flipping the spawns and ruining map control.
Lastly, even Call of Duty YouTubers like XclusiveAce, have also called out how overpowered the new Specialist’s abilities are too.
Ace says it perfectly, the EMP grenade is a good edition to this game. But Zero’s main specialist ability (the icepick hacking system) is definitely OP in some aspects. The fact that it can destroy or take over high end kill streaks almost makes going for them pointless… from Blackops4
Unfortunately, Treyarch has not commented at all either on the official Black Ops 4 subreddit, or on social media. Could it be that they don’t care at all what the player base thinks? Highly doubt it, but I wouldn’t be surprised if Zero’s abilities get a nerf soon.
Do you think Zero’s abilities are overpowered now? Or is this a way for more casual players to feel good about themselves and “earn” high-end scorestreaks that you approve of? Sound off and let us know your thoughts in the comments below.

Soulja Boy has been into videogames for a while, and now he’s a certified PC gamer with a custom-built machine by NZXT. He provided a few details about his rig to TMZ, saying that watching the process of his PC coming together had inspired him to get into the games industry – and possibly even start his own esports company.
Soulja Boy tells TMZ that he plans on putting together teams for Fortnite, Counter-Strike, Call of Duty, and Overwatch in 2019, and he seems pretty serious about it. After all, this news comes hot on the heels of his launch of his own ‘classic’ gaming console – although initial reviews on that particular piece of hardware have been mixed, at best.
Soulja said he’s had help from Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins when it’s come to getting set up for streaming games on Twitch, and that Ninja’s also helped him through the Twitch verification process. But he acknowledges that getting Ninja on a contract with his esports organization might be tricky.
“It’s going to be a lot to hire Ninja to play for me,” he said.
Indeed, running a successful esports company isn’t cheap – even if you aren’t retaining the services of the world’s most popular streamer. This year, Forbes ranked the most valuable esports organizations in the world, putting Cloud9 at the top at $310 (£246) million.

We’ll see what happens with that, but in the meantime, we can welcome Soulja Boy to the ranks of serious PC players. In his brief TMZ interview, Soulja said he had a gaming PC built for him by NZXT, customized with his logo and packed with enough high-end hardware and lighting effects to run up a price tag of $15,000 USD (or just shy of £12,000).
“That really sparked a big vision,” Soulja said, holding a Nintendo Switch in his left hand as he stood near an airport terminal. “Once I’d seen that PC and everything, I’d seen them build it from scratch in one day, you know what I’m saying?”
“It was just inspiring for me, so here we are” he continued. “I’m multitasking, man – music, tech, everything.”

I think most people my age have a definitive arcade experience from growing up. We've all been there: You beg your mom for quarters at the pizza place, she eventually relents and fishes a few out of her purse, and you go do your best to make $1.25 feel like a million bucks. For most kids it was probably Street Fighter II or Mortal Kombat. You know, the heavy hitters in the arcade.
For me, it was Toki.

After Kingdom Hearts III copies have reportedly been found in the wild, director Tetsuya Nomura is urging those who have played leaked versions of the game to keep spoilers to themselves.
With Kingdom Hearts III's release six weeks away, a leak this far in advance is rare. According to EuroGamer, there have been images, gameplay videos, and smaller details like the title screen that have appeared online.
"The whole team has been working together since yesterday night (Japan time) to investigate what we can do better in this situation, but first we would like to ask that you do not share these videos," reads Nomura's statement.
He adds that while these leaked copies have much to spoil, there are portions of the game that remain a secret. These include the secret movie and epilogue that Square Enix plans to reveal post-release.
You can read the full statement below.
Kingdom Hearts III releases on January 29 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. For more, check out this special Kingdom Hearts III-themed PlayStation 4 Pro coming soon.

Kingdom Hearts 3 leaked yesterday, and the game’s director Tetsuya Nomura has released a statement asking fans not to circulate gameplay videos.
Xbox One copies of Kingdom Hearts 3 have made their way into the wild a month ahead of the game’s release, and while gameplay videos are being taken down as soon as they’re popping up, director Tetsuya Nomura reassures fans that the “biggest spoilers” – the epilogue and and secret movie – aren’t included in the leaked copies.
Polygon reports that the person behind the leaked games got their hands on 30 copies via a connection they have to someone involved with the manufacture and printing of the discs in North Carolina.
Someone on Twitter who saw the now-deleted Facebook Marketplace listing for the games claims to know the seller, and in a Twitter thread (also deleted but posted on imgur) they said “It’s a matter of when, not if he will be caught.”
— KINGDOM HEARTS (@KINGDOMHEARTS) December 16, 2018
Nomura says the studio is “aware as to how this has all happened,” and that the “whole team has been working together since [news of the leak] to investigate what we can do to better this situation.”
He asks that fans “do not share these videos” so that players can “equally experience the full game after its release.”
So be wary out there when you’re navigating the choppy waters of social media.

Whether you love it or hate it, you can’t deny that Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty is a memorable game. Who could forget switching from playing as Solid Snake to Raiden? Or when Fatman, the best villain of the series, was introduced? Okay, maybe that last one is just me but MGS 2 certainly has its moments.
In a recent Twitter post, the series’ creator, Hideo Kojima, pays homage to one of these moments. Here is the original tweet:
— 小島秀夫 (@Kojima_Hideo) December 15, 2018
Now, this may seem like an ordinary picture to some. It is just Kojima holding a cigarette, wearing a hooded coat while walking on a bridge. But to Metal Gear Solid fans, this is more than just a picture. The bridge just so happens to be the George Washington Bridge. This is where MGS 2 begins, with a hooded Solid Snake smoking a cigarette. Twitter user @JoseMellinas noticed this giving us this great image.
— José Mellinas (@JoseMellinas) December 15, 2018
Is Kojima looking for a Metal Gear that was scheduled to transport? Is this the meeting place where Kojima and Kanye discuss whatever Ye wants to talk about? Is he just looking for inspiration for his upcoming game, Death Stranding? Regardless of the reason, it’s a fun tribute to one of PS2’s most memorable experiences.
In other Kojima-centric news, the prolific game creator took to Twitter to reminisce on beginning his own studio independently. Today marks three years since Kojima Productions was established.

Colin Kroll, the co-founder and CEO of HQ Trivia, has passed away after what appears to be a drug overdose, reports TMZ.
Kroll's girlfriend called the police when she wasn't able to get a hold of him early this morning. The police accompanied her to his home, where they found him dead in his bedroom surrounded by drug paraphernalia such as cocaine and heroin.
Kroll founded HQ alongside Rus Yusupov last year, though it has been steadily losing its once large audience. Before that, Kroll had worked for Vine as well as Yahoo.
Kroll was 35-years-old. Game Informer extends its sympathies to Kroll's family and friends during this difficult time.
