Most of the gameplay changes that you would come across in Spectre Rising are inspired by clandestine approach and stealth assassinations. Where else to jump in for that other than bringing an old favorite who specializes in such tasks?

Hailing straight from Call of Duty: Black Ops III, returns a deadly playable specialist Spectre who has a reputation that precedes him. Little do we know about this free agent except that he is going to own Hydro Dam on the Blackout map for sure.

Wielding his signature weapon Shadow Blade, specialist Spectre is a perfect tool to take out adversaries in silent yet deadly way. While watching him taking down enemies in third-person perspective, be sure to strike a combo of moves.

Not only is he efficient with his blade but is quite skilled in pulling off exceptional maneuvers in combat. In both Blackout and Multiplayer mode, enemies will tremble at his arrival and he would strike them before they know what hit them.

Taking a total of 12 players to pit them in a 6v6 round-based match against each other, popular multiplayer mode Prop Hunt proudly returns. Hunters will go looking for props that are hidden and scattered throughout the maps to find out.

At times, those sneaky props would effectively blend within map environment by turning into bike or a trash can. Hunters can only track them down by a periodic whistle after every 30 seconds and to take down all of them to win a round.
