The respawn system in Call of Duty: Black Ops is a total mess.

mygamertalk- Multiplayer in Black Ops is great. That is if you can get passed the campers, lag and unforgivable respawn system (shown above).

At first I thought I just missed a player, or someone was camping a certain part of the map. But thanks to Treyarch’s new ‘Theater Mode,’ I was able to get down to the nitty gritty and find out exactly what the problem was. Apparently, after adding the new Wager Match mode, Cod Points and secrets in Nuke Town, they didn’t have time to implement a proper respawn system that spawns players on opposite sides of the map, instead of on top of each other. (Xbox 360)

Yea I agree.

No matter which mode I play I can bet my life that someone is going to spawn close by me and rape me or behind me. Seems like it's totally random.

As soon as BC2 Vietnam and the new Map Pack 7 is out I'll say: "Goodbye Black Ops".

I find it absolutely astounding that something like this never came up when they tested the game. Stuff like this is almost gamebreaking to people.

This game had the potential to be DAMN good FPS !
- Fix the messed up sounds
- Fix the respawn system
- Fix the FPS drops
- Fix some textures
and there you go, it jumps from being 7.5/10 to 8.5

It's a shame that people buy games like this and Guitar Hero.... a Milking franchise

@ Cevapi88 nice video. Shows how horrible the spawn system is. If it wasn't for that I'd be having a great time on the game.

Tip I've found works every time you take 5 steps forward turn around and take 5 steps back more often than not an enemy will spawn. lol

Sorry guys, but this is how its been in all of the CoD's spawning system has been like this gen. We just have a theater mode to showcase it this time around.

What we really need to do is bombard the forums with these videos so hopefully treyarch will finally do something to fix it. I only play objective modes now because its frustrating to be pinned down in the corner of a map and then the enemy still manages to spawn behind you. -_-

Activision is about getting it out quickly.. overhyped and made big profit... forget about testing...that wastes of money!

will be saying bye to black ops when the Noble map pack comes out.

15 more days!

I find this to be 100% true its soo frustrating especially when the basis of the game is kill streaks.

"Because those actually work, just look at how great an experience MW2 is! No overpowered weapons, perks, killstreaks or hackers in that game!"

Was trying to be sarcastic. MW2 had the same internal testing that Black Ops did, and look how that game turned out. Not good.

Not nearly as broken though. Can't stop the modders at this point. But yeah, danger close pro and oma pro are definitely OP'd. Probably would've been fixed if Infinity Ward didn't up and quit.

I think we all can agree the respawn issue will be addressed in the first real patch. I mean, Treyarch is passionate about listening to the community, so I can't see them letting this go.
VenGencE999  +   1787d ago
question is CAN they fix it, as in can the issue itself be fixed. I heard the problem is built into the engine, which is why all the recent COD's have had a spawning problem

Cant wait for BC2 Vietnam.
AS many others once that rolls out Black ops will see very little game time on my behalf!

I love the cod series and think that BO is a pretty good game but the spawns really really suck!
AllroundGamer  +   1788d ago
someone pleaaase send this video to Treyarch... i still think COD4/MW2 was more fun, in BlackOps i reached the max level 50 yesterday and i'm already bored with that game, hope next COD won't fall in Treayarch hands...
