I just picked up this Call Of Duty: Black Ops – First Strike Map Pack and the new zombie map, Ascension is just amazing. Below is what I emailed to friends immediately after playing it to convince them to buy it. :P
I’m exploring the Ascension map on solo right now. It’s soooo gooood. There’s a lunar lander to fly you to different locations. There are two new kinds of perks:
one to make you run faster; and
one so you don’t die if you jump off something high. It also allows you to kill things with an exploding dive that I will show in the video.
Overall the map definitely makes a good use of the 3rd dimension.
The video is longer than I would have liked. Originally I only intended to create a video to show the glitch. It turned into a monkey round and I just left the camera rolling. Fast forward to the end (5:30 mark) to see the glitch.
This video starts with a monkey round. The monkeys are “dogs” of this map. They are little punks because they go after the perk machines so if you want to keep that perk, you have to guard the machine. This makes it tough on solo because the machines are spread apart and if you have all the perks… no hope of keeping them all. On multiplayer you have to split up to guard multiple machines. Sometimes for strategy you leave doors closed so that you don’t lose perks you earned by killing the monkeys. (If you successfully deal with the monkeys on multiplayer, you are rewarded with a random perk.)
