The most threatening enemy in BO4 so far isn’t another player- it’s the freakin’ attack dog.
This year, the holds aren’t a joke only appearing during a scorestreak, but rather can be called in by the Nomad specialist periodically throughout each match. The dogs can literally wipe out an enemy in a single bite and also have a ton of HP to back it up. Players have tried to hide from them rather than kill them. But that doesn’t work too well.
A video uploaded by Reddit user Meltron77 shows off just how dangerous these vicious attack dogs are in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. This user tried to hide in the balcony on the outer edge of Summit, but the only way up to the platform is the ladder, which would seem like a safe spot from any dogs, right? After all, dogs can’t climb ladders.
But, it seems like they don’t care whether there’s a ladder or not when you can jump. The dog walks around the platform and then jumped a huge feat on the platform to kill its prey with a small window for it to kill the dog before it could goal out and unleash its single bite of terror.
Though this is probably not intended to be programmed into the game, it’s still funny, and lethal, at the same time. This may be patched later on by Treyarch, as they’ve already been on a patching craze with not 1, 2, but 3 updates in a row. They’re doing some work alright.
The dog can jump huge distances, so be warned. Call of Duty fans should have to kill it rather than trying to run- because this video (which has already garnered tons of attention on Reddit with over 4.5K upvotes at the time of this writing) shows just how lethal the new attack dogs are this time around in the game.
Black Ops 4 is the latest entry into the long-running Call of Duty: Black Ops series and is the first game to not have a single-player campaign and debuts Blackout, which is CoD’s version of battle royale. The game is available for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. You can pick up a copy on Amazon.
The game will also be a Doorbuster special from Target for $45 based on an early Black Friday ad they released.
