Call of Duty: Black Ops is one of the franchise’s most beloved games. Released in 2010, the original game in the Black Ops series is still looked upon fondly by those in the community who were lucky enough to play it in its heyday. This 1970s shooter delivered some of the most iconic maps, weapons, scores, and other elements the Call of Duty franchise has ever seen. It is for all these reasons that the game is still popular today. In fact, he’s so popular that fans are still pulling off some amazing in-game trickshots. One such trick went viral on social media this weekend after FaZe Clan member Blaze tweeted a video of it.
While trickshots aren’t as popular today as they were when Black Ops was first released, they’re still amazing to behold nonetheless. In the clip that FaZe Blaze tweeted, a group of players are playing on the Summit map, which has been redone several times since Black Ops was released. The video shows two players setting up the trickshot, which involves planting the bomb in Search and Destroy in a specific location and setting up two tactical cameras.
Once one player places the bomb and places their tactical camera, the other player places their camera in another specific location on the map. Then a player goes to the other side of the map and fires an explosive from a grenade launcher (used on an assault rifle) from some stairs. This explosive grenade then somehow travels the length of the map, through rooftops and windows, and hits the two cameras that were previously set up to kill an enemy trying to defuse the bomb. What makes the shot even more amazing is that the explosive grenade actually kills the enemy through direct impact.

The shot is so amazing that many fans in the comments to the tweet don’t think it actually happened. However, the sight of the trickshot theater proves that the shot was done to some extent. It’s unclear exactly when this trickshot took place, but FaZe Blaze seems to imply that it happened fairly recently.
These types of trickshots aren’t too common these days. The Call of Duty games simply had more equipment and tools to pull off tougher shots. However, we do know that the tactical camera will return in the upcoming Modern Warfare II. So maybe some fans can use the Black Ops clip as inspiration for a similar plan when MWII releases in October.
