The latest Call of Duty Black Ops 4 is pretty awesome. The Barebones mode and the new update for Zombies are both really cool additions to the game. However, Activision could not help themselves and there is a pretty sneaky and unfair cash grab that has gotten people pretty upset. I am talking about the Home Wrecker hammer in Call of Duty Black Ops IIII.
Let me start by saying that I think the idea of the Home Wrecker is really cool. It is a melee weapon (a hammer) and it can do some major damage and it does it in a very grisly way. What has gotten people so made is that they are asking 20 bucks for it… ok so that is a little bit misleading, but in a way it is true.
As I write this Activision are keeping The Home Wrecker behind The Triple Play Bundle which costs 20 bucks! This bundle comes with 10 loot boxes, 10 tier skips and also a crate that guarantees an MKII weapon and of course The Home Wrecker. Activision is saying that this is a great deal, but many of the Call of Duty fans are not too pleased about this.
To be fair the value when you factor in all you are getting is not bad at all. However, for those who just want to get their hands on the hammer, it comes across as really unfair. I do not see why they could not have the Home Wrecker hammer on there as its own thing for like a couple of bucks, I am sure people would have gone nuts for it.
