I’m a fan of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 (underneath the terrible microtransactions it’s a great shooter), and so I keep an eye on impressive gameplay clips from the community.
This week I saw perhaps the greatest Black Ops 4 clip ever.
The clip below, from an American college student called Hunter Parsell, is set during the endgame of a match of Blackout, Black Ops 4’s battle royale. Parsell knows his opponent is at the top of the building as the circle closes in.
I don’t care for all the Timmy business, but I have to admit it’s one hell of a no-scope sniper shot on a fast-moving target. “And yeet” before the shot combined with Parsell’s reaction after it makes the whole thing even more ridiculous.
Funnily enough, I had another Black Ops 4 multiplayer clip earmarked this week, one that only just loses out to Parsell’s “and yeet” shot.
The clip, below, shows redditor drunk3nm0nk3y89x use the grapple hook at the start of a traditional competitive multiplayer match to slingshot himself high into the air. While in the air he lands a sniper rifle shot on an unsuspecting enemy who’s crouched behind cover across the map. It’s a pretty incredible trick shot!
Some of the stuff Call of Duty players are able to pull off in these games is remarkable, and I never tire of seeing skill I’ll never be able to match.
