Wager Matches, New Gametype In CoD Black Ops

 Black Ops

Wager Matches are a new game type introduced in Call Of Duty Black Ops, in which a player wagers his CoD points against other players. The top three players are "In the Money", meaning they earn CoD points. There will be six players in each Wager Match. So far, 4 game modes have been confirmed.

Gun Game - Based off a Counter Strike mod. All players start with a pistol. Players will level up with each kill, giving them a new gun. Knifing does not give a new level. If a player is knifed, they will move down a level. They game ends when someone achieves a kill with all twenty weapons.
The weapon tiers are :

  1. Python  (Snub Nose and Speed Reloader attachments)
  2. Makarov Dual Wield
  3. SPAS
  4. Stakeout
  5. MP5K
  6. Skorpion Dual Wield
  7. AK-74u
  8. M14
  9. M16A1
  10. FAMAS
  11. Aug
  12. HK21
  13. M60
  14. L96A1
  15. WA2000
  16. Grim Reaper
  17. LAW
  18. China Lake
  19. Crossbow
  20. Ballistic Knife

 Sticks and Stones - A Free For All style game. Everyone starts with a Tomahawk , Crossbow and Ballistic Knife. Players earn points with kills, and the match ends when a player reaches the score limit, or if the time limit is reached.
 If a player is killed by a Tomahawk, they will "Bankrupt" losing all points, and having to start again, from 0. They first player to reach the score limit, or the player with the highest score when the time limit is reached, wins.

One in the Chamber - Another Free for All like game. All players start with a random pistol, with one round in it (hence the name). An additional bullet will be given to the player with each kill. In this game mode, one shot from the pistol, even to the foot will kill. Knifing also supplies the player with another bullet. Players will have three lives in this game mode.

Sharpshooter - All of the players will spawn with the same random weapon. After 45 seconds. another weapon will be randomly selected. Each kill will give players a perk, and eventually a score multiplier.
The requirements to win are currently unknown, but it would not surprise us if it will be a score limit.

CoD Points, The New Currency Of Black Ops

 Black Ops

A new feature that will appear in Call Of Duty Black Ops is the CoD point system.
Weapons, perks, equipment and killstreaks will be bought using the Treyarch's new ingame currency. After you reach a certain level, a weapon or some other piece of equipment becomes available for purchase using the points. This also applies to perks and killstreaks. Perks are unlocked at level 4 and then available for purchase. The same goes for killstreaks which are unlocked at level 10.
This way, if you are not interested in a certain attachment, perk or killstreak, you can completely skip it and save the points for some other purpose.
How will they be earned?
Cod points will be earned both in normal matches (it has been stated that the average player will earn at least 300 CoD points per match) and specially designed game types called Wager Matches. Players will also be able to earn additional points with Contracts.

Call Of Duty Black Ops Perks

Perks in Call Of Duty Black Ops will be unlocked at level 4. Tier one perks (blue) will change the players appearance. Treyarch has also said that some perks will require more than one set of challanges to unlock the pro version. Many of the perks introduced in Modern Warfare 2 will return, some identical, some slightly changed (Bling will be renamed Warlord, Sitrep to Hacker). Tier one perks will change the players ingame appearance (Ghost will give players ghillie suits on some maps, players with Scavenger will have more ammo packs on their bodies)
