Call of Duty: Black Ops 2

Black Ops 2's Scorestreak Stealing Black Hat Also Works on Teammates

Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 features a wealth of new weapons, items, scorestreaks and equipment that has never been featured in the franchise previously, one of which is the Black Hat PDA.

The Black Hat is designed to help you deal with enemy scorestreak rewards and equipment. When used for its intended purpose, the Black Hat will hack or destroy enemy equipment and can even do so over great distances and through walls. See that UAV flying at 30,000 feet? Just zap it with your Black Hat and that's all she wrote.

How about the Guardian Turret that you can see through two walls a hundred feet out? Zap! It's finished.

As you can see, the Black Hat is incredibly powerful and versatile and something everyone should have equipped on at least one of your custom classes. But did you know that the Black Hat isn't all fun and games?

As evidenced by FPS General team members in the video above, the Black Hat can actually steal friendly care packages from a good distance away. This means that malicious team members can use the Black Hat to steal your care package as it lands, without you able to do a single thing about it.

We'd like to say that honor and duty will prevent team member from doing this but...well, it won't. We're not sure if this is an intended feature or a bug but we'll be interested to see if it is something Treyarch allows or will patch up in the future.
