Black Ops 2: Tactical Nuke Incoming (hidden killstreak)

Black Ops 2: Tactical Nuke Incoming (hidden killstreak)

Treyarch’s Community Manager, David Vonderhaar, has repeatedly hinted at the fact Call of Duty: Black Ops II includes a hidden killstreak.

Infinity Ward ‘hid’ the MOAB in Modern Warfare 3, leading many to believe this will be similar. Some YouTubers have speculated that the hidden killstreak will require a team to activate. But now we know for sure.

Some three weeks after the official launch – forever in gaming terms – the secret has been revealed. Black Ops 2 features ….. a Tactical Nuke!

This is no MW2 Tactical Nuke: it is going to be very difficult to attain. To get one, you need 25 kills without dying in Free For All. Once you have done that, the Tactical Nuke will show up alongside your existing point streaks:

The question is, why is there a gap between The Swarm and the Tactical Nuke? Is there another hidden streak that we don’t know about? Watch this space.

Disclaimer: this is fake. There is no Tactical Nuke in Black Ops 2. That video is pretty convincing though!
