Treyarch Asks Black Ops 2 Players to ‘Go Easy on Christmas Noobs’

Posted on December 18, 2012 AT 06:09am

With Christmas just a few days away there’s bound to be a lot of new Call of Duty players jumping onto Black Ops 2 after receiving it as a gift. Treyarch has warned current players to go easy on these newcomers over the festive period.

In the latest Message of the Day (via Reddit), developer Treyarch has asked players to not go too hard on the “Christmas noobs” that are going to be coming into the game.

“Let’s talk Christmas Noobs. It’s that time of the year again where thousands of new players join the online ranks for the first time. We’d ask you to go easy on the Christmas Noobs, but we know you won’t,” reads the message. “If you are a Christmas Noob yourself, don’t be bullied. In the Combat Training category you’ll find a great playlist called Boot Camp. This is the best place for a player to get up to speed on the game and all it has to offer.”

You can read the full message below.

Will you be taking Treyarch’s advice? Let us know in the comments below.
