I read a very interesting post about how they feel Treyarch should add a mode in Call of Duty Black Ops 4 that allows you to have no specialists. At first, I thought what on earth were they talking about? But then I thought about it some more and I feel that they have a point.
Specialists are nothing new to the Call of Duty series if you played a lot of Black Ops 3 or Infinite Warfare you know this. However, I do feel that in Black Ops 4 they have tried to make their specialists walk a line that makes them kind of between the heroes that Overwatch has and the Operators that Rainbow Six Siege has.
I totally get what they were going for. Having a character that has “special” abilities and their own backstory has worked out very well for Overwatch and Siege and it is something that I feel Call of Duty needed to be honest with you. However, I get that how some old school Call of Duty players may see the Specialists as a bit annoying. They just want that run and gun action, everyone on the same playing field with no weird or OP abilities.
For me though while I think adding a mode like this would be a good move and also probably pretty easy for the guys and gals at Activision to do. I love the Specialists in Black Ops 4 and find them one of the most interesting things about the game. It makes me wonder what Treyarch could do if they did not have the confines of having to make their characters realistic!
