Call of Duty Black Ops 2 Create a Class information and how it works

Updated on November 20, 2012


Okay so in this guide I am going to talk about the create a class in Black Ops 2, and talk about what everything means, and try to take away any confusion people seem to have.

Before I get started, let me say, please feel free to ask questions below in the comments section..

OR if you want to stay on top of all of my Call Of Duty Black Ops 2 guides feel free to follow me on Twitter @Johnrr631992 , or . I will be posting guides for online play, multiplayer game types, set ups for each game mode, zombie guides, campaign guides, info guides, and anything that you need to know going into Call of Duty Black Ops 2.

Also you can ask question on my Gamer Tag on Xbox Live IF need be.. My gamer tag is MKS JohnR space between the two.

ALSO!!! - I am starting a new clan. If you are reading this feel free to message me on Xbox Live, or on Twitter. As of now I am only open to people on Xbox, but will be moving multi-platform in December/January. So please feel free to contact me with questions. Also I will have a Website specifically for the clan, and it will be pretty big.

Create A Class

Okay, so I have been thinking of the easiest way to explain this.. So here we go.. Before I start let me say, feel free to ask ANY questions below in the comments if I am not clear enough.

So the create a class has been completely re-done compared to ANY other COD game. While in the old games you got to choose a certain item from each category, in Black Ops 2, it will be done slightly differently. While the default will be like any other COD game, it will work on a point system.

You get 10 points.. EVERYTHING cost 1 point. Your weapon, each perk, grenades, attachments, secondary weapons, etc..

So a basic setup would be 3 points for the perks.. one from each category.. 1 for a gun, 1 for a sidearm.. up to 2 attachments on both, and a grenade.. and there is your 10.. A standard set up..

BUT there are also wildcards.. Wildcards cost you 1 point, but will also allow certain things, like 3 attachments, extra grenade, more perks, and so on.. I will list out the wildcard options below..


Okay so here are a list of the wildcards and what they do.. Remember that these cost 1 point to buy, and in certain cases may cost an additional point to get an item but I will explain that below with certain items..

Perk 1 greed is first.. This will allow you to have an additional item from Perk 1 section in addition to the perk. When you buy a perk greed whether it be 1, 2 or 3 this is one example where once you buy the wild card it will take 1 point, PLUS an additional point to buy the perk on top of the wildcard... So if you have 6 perks.. 2 from each category, then you will have the original 3 at 1 point each.. 3 wild cards, and then 3 more for the new perks.. This equals 9, and leaves 1 point for you to buy a weapon.

Perk 2 greed.. Refer to Perk 1, but with second perk class.

Perk 3 greed, refer to perk 1 , but with third perk class.

Overkill.. Well you should remember this from many COD games, but this will allow you to have an extra primary weapon in addition to your first primary weapon.

Primary gunfighter.. This will allow you to have a third attachment on your gun.

Secondary gunfighter.. This will allow you to have a second attachment on your secondary.

Danger close.. This will allow you to take a second lethal grenade.

Tactician.. This will allow you to take a specialty grenade, but will replace your lethal grenades..( not worth it ;) )

Spending Points

Obviously you want to spend your points wisely. This will allow you to have the most success on Black Ops 2, and allow you to have a good chance at succeeding when playing the game..

My setup is going to be, Not using a secondary, 3-4 (maybe 5 but i doubt it) perks, assault rifle with 3 attachments, Silencer, scope, and probably full metal jackets or extended mags, or dual clips.. I will keep it simple. But I never use a secondary, and probably will only use 3 perks, and focus the rest on important things like 2 grenades.

Remember not to waste your points on things that don't make sense.

Also it is useful if you spend your prestige tokens on classes on this game so you can fully customize every aspect of every gun. This will allow you to have the most success per game mode.

In the past I have never really focused on adding more classes, but in this game I will focus on customizing classes for each game type.


So there you have it.. If anything is confusing please ask, because it made sense in my head, but my head screws things up from time to time.. So ask if you have questions.

Remember to ration your points wisely, and to make your class depending on the game mode, and not what looks cool.. thanks for reading..

OH, and lets try to actually play a COD game without using tubes...... (Its worth a shot) but anyways, thats what they added flak jacket for ;).

      WOW that would be a little crazy... and to think I was nervous about getting a scuff controller initially because of the two extra bumpers, but that would drive me nuts learning all the different keys...

      That's nothing. On PC, you've got 2 more buttons to bind to allow you to lean, the game keeps automatically binding my '1' button to 'prone,' 'use' and 'reload' are two different buttons ('E' and 'R'), and I use Teamspeak frequently to chat with friends while we're playing BO2, and use ALT to use push-to-talk in that. Hmm... what other binds do I have... 'Q' for weapon switch, then mouse wheel up and down for previous and next weapons. I think that sums up the 'extra' binds, as far as PC vs. console control goes.

      If you want really crazy, the game itself will let you bind EVERY different action to 2 different keys.

      Another thing to note is that, unless you kill a player while they are using voice chat to talk to a teammate, death chat will usually be silent since the in-game voice chat is "push-to-talk" rather than the "voice activated" used by things like xBox Live chat and Skype.

      Ahh, death chat... the one thing I truly envy console players. Not very many PC players use voice chat. Well, the in-game voice chat at least. I frequently play with a group of people who use TeamSpeak for voice chat.

      Lately to be honest.. Now that I am a master prestige, and have diamond guns, either I am playing zombies, OR I am just playing around on Black Ops 2.. BUT I LOVE using tubes to annoy people who tend to annoy me with their microphones, plus I LOVE hearing them for that second when they die complaining lately hahaha.

      I'll be honest, I haven't run into many people running the Grenade Launcher attachment. I think I've been killed by it maybe 2 or 3 times, and I may have 1 or 2 kills with it. . . I just realized, I kind of miss the Under-Barrel Shotgun (or Masterkey, if you prefer). I found it rather entertaining to run around with an assault rifle with that in MW3. . . so why didn't they include it in BO2? I mean, they had it in MW2, BO1, and MW3. . . Hmm. . .
