A number of new gameplay additions make Black Ops 4 one of the most competitive entries into the series. Manual healing, for example, forces you to take a couple of seconds out of combat in order to heal up, adding an element of risk and some decision-making to what used to be a background process. Unlike in previous Call of Duty games, you almost never lower your gun in Black Ops 4, which smooths out the multiplayer experience even more by allowing you to mantle and use equipment while shooting.

Limited Ammunition and Healing. NO MORE SELF HEALING! ... kind of. I guess the current system has a sort of self-healing if you're above 50 HP, but if you're below that you'll need a patch up from a medical pack. You can only carry one (Medics have infinite) and the design feels pretty balanced. May need a tweak here or there, but I like that healing is now a decision you have to make in the heat of battle rather than a magical restoration after a few seconds.
Black Ops was first officially unveiled when the website for the game went live on April 30, 2010 prior to the release of its debut teaser trailer on GameTrailers TV Episode 310.
