Black Ops 4’s Ajax and 9-Bang are OP and Fans Have Had Enough

Black Ops 4’s Ajax and 9-Bang are OP and Fans Have Had Enough

Ever since Black Ops 4 was released two weeks ago, one specialist and gear has caused players countless moments of frustration.

Yesterday, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 was officially two weeks old, and it’s had a relatively smooth launch, at least compared to other Call of Duty games in the past. It’s not all peaches and cream, however, as many fans, including myself, have found themselves annoyed with two features found within both the game’s multiplayer and Blackout modes: Ajax and the 9-Bang.

While it may sound like a dinky band name from the past, these two features, which are often times paired together, can be absolutely unstoppable at times. With the 9-Bang, players can flash, stun, and incapacitate their enemies all at the same time, with leaves many players frustrated. Pair this, with Ajax in the game’s multiplayer, who has an impenetrable riot shield, and you have a recipe for disaster. Over the past few days, many have taken to Reddit and Twitter to voice their displeasure with Ajax and the 9-Bang.

Of course, we can’t mention Ajax without mentioning the video that went semi-viral the other day, which even ended up being retweeted by Robert Bowling, the former Community Manager of Infinity Ward.
