Rezurrection Information Leaked by Former IGN Employee
When you’re active in the Call of Duty scene, you’re bound to come across leaks. Sometimes “anonymous” informants spill the beans. Sometimes it’s the developer / publisher making a mistake, causing information to get in the wrong hands. And sometimes it’s an former employee who’s not happy with his former boss. In this case, we’re dealing with the latter.
Twitter user Tyler (@lolmastergenral) is the former employee who’s been spilling the beans about Rezurrection’s Moon map ahead of time. Tyler says he had been working as a game reviewer at IGN and before the abrupt ending of his job, he got to play the Rezurrection map pack. Initially, he says he didn’t intend to leak the information, as he was warned once before for leaking information ahead of time. But due to him getting fired unfairly (according to him), he decided to go ahead and share what he knew about the Moon map.
What did Tyler share? Quite a bit. Here are a few of the things Tyler says will be in Rezurrection’s Moon map. First of all, there will be a new Wonder Weapon, called the Wave Gun.
Tyler: I’ve used this gun before, and I can safely say that you will love it. You shoot it at a crowd of zombies, and they literally puff up and explode. But that’s not all this gun does. By pressing left on the d-pad, you can literally split the gun in half, resulting in two separate handheld guns, titled the Voltage Rays. You hold them one in each hand, and they shoot electricity, similar to the Wunderwaffe DG-2, however the Voltage Rays zap less zombies with each shot.
Not only will there be anew weapon, there will be new piece of equipment as well. A special grenade called “Quantam Entanglement Device“
Tyler: When you throw it, it creates a large, dome-shaped force field around it which zombies are seemingly magnetically pulled into, and everything you do to one zombie in the force field happens to all the others in it. For example, if you shoot one zombie, all the others will have a bullet hole in them as well. In the Intel, Treyarch said that along with blessing your battle, the Quantam Entanglement Device can also curse it, but from what I’ve seen, there are no negative effects of it. Guess I must be missing something.
Wait, there is more new stuff. What about a new perk called Three-Gun Tequila which allows you to wield three weapons instead of the regular two.
Tyler: As you can probably guess from the title, this perk allows you to wield three weapons instead of the regular two. It costs 3,000 points to buy, its color is grey, and it symbol is a pistol with two phasing pistols stacked under it. If you get downed with this perk, you lose the weapon you were currently holding, but if you’re revived and you buy the perk again, you get that weapon back.
According to Tyler, the final new addition to the Moon map will be a new special zombie, the Phasing Zombie.
Tyler: Similar to the Napalm Zombie and the Shrieker Zombie from Shangri-La, these zombies are fairly rare. But when they do appear, you’re in trouble. They appear out of thin air, and you can see them for a moment, but then they become invisible. They don’t appear again until they attack or they are shot at. However, if you pay close attention when they’re invisible, you can see a kind of distortion where they are. Unfortunately, though, this is hard to see when there are zombies all around you.
In Tyler’s original leak on the Call of Duty forums, which has been deleted and re-posted a couple of times, he shared a ton more information about the Moon map. If you want to know more about the Moon map, that thread would be a good place to go. In case the thread gets deleted again, here is another source of information:
Pastebin (Scratch that, the document has been removed)
Whether this is a real story or not, the information Tyler shares does add up with what we know and what’s been shared in the “behind the scenes” of Rezurrection video. What do you think about this situation and the leak?
