Call of Duty: Black Ops 2

Hands On With Black Ops 2's New Multiplayer Game Modes

Use the navigation below to learn about the game modes that are brand new to Call of Duty: Black Ops 2.

What's New in Black Ops 2?


Black Ops 2 is far from a rehash of the old Call of Duty experience. With a handful of new multiplayer game modes, an awesome singleplayer campaign and the ever-addicting Zombies experience, this is a full-featured addition to the Call of Duty franchise.

Now, on the competitive multiplayer side of things, you might be curious about what changes Treyarch has made? In addition to things like the Pick 10 Create-a-Class and totally revamped scorestreak system, Black Ops 2 also features a number of brand new multiplayer game modes. Don't worry, though, Call of Duty veterans will still enjoy their favorite classic game modes like Search and Destroy, Domination, Team Deathmatch and Capture the Flag. All of these game modes are there, but this time around, they are being supplemented with some fun new options, as well.

The new game modes in Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 include:

  • Hardpoint
  • Multi-Team Games
  • Party Games
  • Combat Training

We're going to be going in depth with all of these game modes, but first a quick note on Combat Training. If you played Black Ops the first, you'll undoubtedly be aware that Combat Training is not, in fact, a new game mode. Treyarch has made so many changes to Combat Training, however, that we're going to revisit it and all of the new features therein.

Previously, the bots were very barebones and not very intuitive. This time around, they are capable of playing objective game modes and the options to play with other friends online have been greatly expanded.

More on that later in this guide, however, stay tuned!
