Pointless But Interesting Black Ops Stats

After little under a month of people slaughtering each other in the multiplayer portion of Call of Duty: Black Ops, courtesy of the in-game live feed we have some random, but – admittedly in a geeky way – interesting data on the latest Call of Duty game. Read on…

  • 218 Billion rounds of ammunition have been fired in anger by Black Ops players.
  • So far, 15,232 man-years have been spent playing Black Ops.
  • Preferring the silent method of killing an opponent, 23,548,521 players have stabbed a rival in the back.
  • Black Ops’ death toll is equal to 69% of the world’s population – around 4.7 Billion deaths. 971 Million of those were due to Killstreak Rewards.
  • You guys are accountable for 196, 739,319 virtual cars that have been blown up.
  • Collectively, Black Ops players have ran around the world 25,700 times.
  • 345,234 people have killed someone, stolen their gun, and then killed them again with their own gun, making them look like a total fool!
  • Layed to end, 262,344 miles of crossbow bolts have been let loose.
  • 12 Million flags have been captured.
  • 6.7 Billion practice dummies have sacrificed their lives.
  • 89 Million people have been humiliated in wager matches.
  • 895k metric tons of frag grenades have been thrown.
  • 24 Million Care Packages have been shared.
  • 1.3 Million invalid clan tags have been rejected. Not surprising considering you can’t even name a custom class slot “assault”!

      I’d say around 5? Its a real lucky to get an acurate quickscope.

    And last but not least, 1.8 million noobs have been smoked by us (unless your a noob).

    Just think, if that time was put towards something more constructive – we might have hover cars by now!

    Then again, that last 32 hours is probably mine.

    How about some actual stats.

    20% of games finished without seeing it get disconnected?

    12 billion campers are still camping?

      @TheShow: I have not had any issues since the first week with my xbox 360 version. If you are going to play the game then you should expect the campers. If you are good enough then they shouldn’t even be an issue. The good thing about campers is that if they do kill you the first time, then all you have to do is go back to that same spot and 99% of them are still going to be there for the easy kill.

        What are your ideas? That’s right none!! Those ideas should be added to a new game mode like barebones. If u don’t like it don’t join right? That’s the freedom you have to join or not..

      I like the thought of those. Although I am not sure if you would see the teamwork you are hoping for in a pub match anyways. You are better off playing with a party of friends. I don’t know how many times I have played headquarters and most of my teammates are so worried about their k/d that they dont even attempt to capture.

      i think it would be cool if after a game “ends” due to score limit, there should be a “retreat”. Like all remaining players on the losing team have to get to a random evac point (like a helicopter) within a min of losing. If they die on the way to the evac then they dont respawn; but if they make it, they get a higher match bonus. This idea can be further developed by more ideas such as “losers don’t get xp for their kills since theyre retreating” or “kill/death ratios are not affected during a retreat”.
      If this element to the game was added then it would add a higher sense of realism and there wouldnt be those moments where the game ends right before you knife the enemy in front of you in the back.

    i think there should be more hardcore game modes there is only 5 and it is way more realistic than core (emptying a whole magazine into an enemy before they die)

      they should have a game mode WITH HUD and decreased health. I would play hardcore but its a massive camp fest, HUD would cancel that out.

    • Soul Ripper says:

      i agree with that 100% and as for the Hud that would cancel alot of it out but to be honest they need to make it where if your sitting till for a certain amount of time with anything but a sniper rifle you should either die or be kicked

      The problem was not that a whole lot of people died from quick scoping, im not saying if your were good you could take out a team of 6 no prob, but it was more people who were bad at it and went 12-34 in a team death or tried to do a amazing shot in search and destroy. If they do bring it back I do not want to see sleight of hand back in just make it like call of duty 4.

        Also, guns take longer to kill than in mw2, so if you could go around and one shot som1 with an L96 it would be pretty unfair

    Personally I would like to see an actual reward for reaching prestige levels, not just a different emblem. I am currently prestige 1 level 45, and will reach a second prestige soon however I am not sure if I will decide to prestige or not as I was very disappointed with the rewards I got first time round. Also I don’t think the COD points system was worth putting in the game, Treyarch stated that people would be able to choose there class layouts from the moment go! I find this to be incorrect as the gun I prefer to use is the commando, this gun is only available at level 44, if they believe this gun to be better than others why didn’t they just make it cost more? I think varied costs would have been a better way of doing it rather than levels. Saying that I do understand that they needed a reason for people to play through the levels and just like prestige there wouldn’t have been much reward for achieving the next level if the guns weren’t related. Maybe combine the prestige with your favourite weapon, whereas you can choose one gun to carry over as you prestige but this would only be available once you have unlocked custom class’s again?

      That is the same idea i had and wanted to happen where you can choose one gun to carry over as you prestige but this would only be available once you have unlocked custom class’s again.

    It would be awesome if they had set it up that if someone else is playing on your account with you if you could pay their ante for the death matches. It’s a pain to have to do a team death match or two just to play the gun game with them for a couple of hours just to lose the money that you have made.

    How about percentages of who’s got the game for each system.

    Like 39% have it for PS3, 44% have it for XBox, 10% have it for Wii and the other 7% for DS.

    Something like that I think would be cool.
