[Update] A Better Look at the Black Ops 2 Poster Boy, More Intel Teases Mysterious Character

Share this:

Update: Yesterday’s image has been revealed, clearly confirming the return, or at least an appearance, of one of the original Black Ops’ lead characters, Sgt. Frank Woods. The tattoos on his arm are a dead giveaway.

Original Story: At last, we’ve managed to get a good look at the blurred poster boy that we’ve seen on many of the leaked Black Ops 2 promotional posters while yet another piece of Black Ops 2 intel hits the web.

Our friend, MrRoflWaffles, has recently sent in this picture, originally from KingJamesBallin, giving us a very clear shot of the poster boy found on many pieces of Black Ops 2’s promotional material:

Some very interesting things to note:

  • The Oakley military gloves he is wearing strongly suggest a contemporary setting for Black Ops 2.
  • The protection on his forearms isn’t your every-day, standard military armor either. Again, this suggests an either contemporary or futuristic setting.
  • The weapon he is holding, which we have yet to learn the name of yet, also looks rather high-tech with many attachment rails.

On to what the official Call of Duty website has for us today. We’re only a day away from the official May 1st reveal of Black Ops 2 but Treyarch has not finished having their fun yet. Another image teases us with a shot of a character’s arm who seems to be somewhat aged, also given away by the medals of distinction hung on the wall in front of him. Could it be a returning character from the original Black Ops?

Again, thanks, MrRoflWaffles, for the image and insight.
