Black Ops 3 campaign requires a special rig for wall-running and boosting

Not just anybody can boost jump and wall run around the battlefield in Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 (opens in new tab). If you want to enjoy all the acrobatic benefits of cybernetic augmentation in the co-op campaign, you'll need to equip the Traversal Enhancement rig. Or if you'd rather blast grenades and rockets right back at your attackers, you might want to give the Repulsor Armor a shot. Take a look:

You'll have multiple slots for tactical rigs, so you won't always have to choose between parkour glory and, say, an automatic self-revive system. Of course, you won't be able to bring them all into battle, which means you and your co-op squadmates will need to coordinate to cover each other's weaknesses.

No matter what rigs you choose, you'll have two augmented vision modes to keep you alert and aware: DNI Tactical Mode, which gives you extra battle data like enemy type, and indicators for grenades and whoever shot you most recently; and Enhanced Vision Mode, which sends out pulses that light up the environment and outline enemies. That should come in handy in Black Ops 3's one-hit-kill Realistic mode (opens in new tab), or for finding fresh targets for your death-puke ability (opens in new tab). And don't forget - PS3 and Xbox 360 won't get the Black Ops 3 campaign (opens in new tab)

Long before that, I started pursuing my degree in video games by bugging my older brother to let me play Zelda on the Super Nintendo.
