Treyarch makes good on their promise of new 2017 content for Black Ops 3.


Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 developer Treyarch teased new 2017 content for the game during a Facebook livestream at the end of last year, and it looks like it’s starting to trickle in.

New weapons and Specialist themes were announced over on the Activision blog today, and you’ll be able to pick them up on the Black Market starting tomorrow.

Here’s what to expect:

  • New Weapons
    • PPSH – The PPSH is like holding a little piece of history – you know, a piece of history that features a high rate of fire and happens to be perfect for close encounters
    • M16 – This highly-anticipated fan-favorite is back. The classic American three-round burst assault rifle that introduced burst fire to the Black Ops series, returns for a familiar feel that is sure to please fans of this satisfying yet challenging style of gun combat
  • Specialist Themes
    • Treyarch is also adding a slew of new Specialist themes to the mix, with one new Theme for each and every Specialist
