Call of Duty: Black Ops subversive intel code cracked

The solution to a Call of Duty: Black Ops puzzle we didn’t know existed has been solved by YouTube user 01MaverickTen10. The mystery begins with the intel info that appears at the lower left-hand corner of your screen every time you start a new mission. The intel includes information about who you’re playing as and where the mission takes place. According to MaverickTen, it’s the ‘designate words’ you need to pay attention to, like Alpha, Bravo, Charlie, etc. Take the first letter from these designate words from every mission in the game, and you’ll be able to decipher a surprising message that relates to the biggest plot twist in the game’s campaign.

The mysterious message reads: "Reznov is dead. Or is he dead? There was no body. Is he who he says he is?"

    Why does he keep saying, "Crack the code yourself"? Dumbass, you just cracked the code for us. There's nothing left for us to do.

    jesus, this game has more twists than a M. Night Shyamalan movie *bu-dum tch* too bad the multiplayer is complete horse shit at times.

    you's the fly, boyeeee

    His enthusiasm over something so trivial is entertaining. I never paid attention to that stuff and no I wonder what else Treyarch hid the game.
  • StrayGator - November 24, 2010 11:06 p.m.

    Reznov lives in all of our hearts. Paul, however, is dead.
  • peregy - November 24, 2010 10:58 p.m.

    wow he discovered that Alfa,Bravo etc are used for saying letters over radios so there is no confusion(like m and n and similar) and also it's not only military...
  • mrandydixon - November 24, 2010 10:48 p.m.

    Well, I guess now I know Reznov dies. A story spoiler warning would have been nice!

    Nerd cred.

    I'd say give the guy his 15 minutes of 'fame', but holy shit get over yourself. You'd think he cured Cancer or something.
