Call of Duty: Black Ops IIII’s reveal is coming soon, and Treyarch are teasing the return of a popular mechanic.
In 2012, Treyarch revolutionized Call of Duty multiplayer customization with the Pick 10 system. The system gave players ten slots they could fill with any combination of weapons, perks, equipment, attachments, and wildcards. If you wanted a heavy gunner class with two weapons and no equipment, you could make it. Want to go melee crazy with just a knife and lots of equipment? That was possible. Since Call of Duty: Black Ops II, every Call of Duty title has used some form of the system, until it was scrapped for Divisions in Call of Duty: WWII. For Black Ops IIII though, it looks like the system will return.
Treyarch took to Twitter to post a mysterious image that looks quite familiar to Call of Duty: Black Ops fans. The image shows off ten colored squares followed by a 10/10, which is similar to the system featured in Black Ops II and Black Ops III:

If true, the return of Pick 10 would be a welcome returning feature, especially considering the troubling leaks about Black Ops IIII. The leaks suggest that Black Ops IIII will not have a campaign and that the game would be more Overwatch than Call of Duty. Activision and Treyarch have not commented on these rumors, and we will likely have to wait till May 17 to see if they have any validity. A Battle Royale mode is also rumored to be under development over at Raven Software.
Call of Duty: Black Ops IIII is out October 12 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
