Call of Duty: Black Ops’ The Replacer Added to Blackout Battle Royale Mode

If you've always wanted to play as the Replacer in the Black Ops games then now you can, as his character is now playable in Blackout.

A few weeks back, the semi-famous Black Ops trailer character The Replacer made a comeback in the trailer for the second major update for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. Fast forward to today and it seems like Treyarch won’t be done using the character any time soon, as the developer released an in-game skin of him to use in the game’s battle royale mode, Blackout, and it looks amazing.

The model in-game seems to be pulled right from the iteration seen in the aforementioned trailer, as there’s a Black Ops 4 lapel pin on his suit. Unfortunately, if you just wanted the skin then you’re out of luck, as The Replacer is only available in a bundle pack, which also features a new variant of the Swordfish tactical rifle, as well as five free Tier skips.

To celebrate the skins announcement and release, Treyarch released a brand new trailer, which shows off all of the bundle’s contents in action. You can, just like always, check out the trailer at the end of the article.

For those that don’t know, The Replacer first appeared in the commercials for Black Ops 2’s DLC season, before reappearing in the trailer for the first Black Ops 3 DLC. He’s a character that’s pretty much universally loved by the community so it’s nice to see him keep popping up.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC. If you want to pick up the game on Amazon, all you have to do is click here.
