The DNA Bomb (also called the Manticore) is a secret killstreak in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. Unlike the Scorestreaks in COD: AW’s Multiplayer, the DNA Bomb can only be obtained and used after earning 30 kills in a single life. Any kills made with Guns, explosives, and melee attacks will count towards this killstreak, but kills made with Scorestreaks will not go towards the Manticore!
Once activated, the DNA Bomb will kill all players on the opposing team. The game will continue on, unlike the Nuclear killstreak in past Call of Duty games.
You might have seen the mind blowing commercials for Destiny, the upcoming sci-fi shooter that will be out for multiple platforms next week. You may have also noticed that all of these commercials are aimed at the Playstation market. This is because Activision and Sony are getting all buddy-buddy on the marketing campaign, with the folks behind Destiny offering all sorts of “exclusive” content for PlayStation owners.
So what was Microsoft’s response? This cheeky series of advertisements, first posted on the Xbox UK Twitterand Facebook accounts, that claims they’re making a Destiny-themed fragrance. Obviously, they’re not. The website ( http://www.destinyfragrance.com), which is linked in UK magazine ads, just takes you to a British pre-order page for the game on Xbox.
But what’s interesting here is that dig at Activision. “Thing is, we didn’t have permission to run adverts for the game. So we didn’t.” Strange, right? Assuming this is true—and why would they write something like that if it wasn’t?—it’s amusing to see a company like Microsoft calling Activision out for partnering with Sony on what’s surely going to be a huge game all around. Its a very rare thing to see companies actually saying whats on there mind and lashing towards each other.
Destiny comes out on Tuesday, and unfortunately The Destiny Fragrance does not.
The launch Trailer for Terminal Reality’s take on The walking Dead has sprung out today like a virus in a shopping mall, and it gets stab happy.
In the trailer, it shows Daryl Dixon firing arrows, stabbing and generally giving alot of the undead a bad time, whilst he searches for his brother, Merle Dixon.
The walking Dead: Survival is out tomorrow in the US and is out on the 22nd in the UK.
Modern Warfare 4‘s recent rumours have been quashed by the voice actor who originally sparked them.
Billy Murray – who plays Captain Price in the series – was reported to have told an Xbox fansite that he is working on the sequel, but now claims he was misquoted.”I told the guy I was doing a special new Modern Warfare for China, not Modern Warfare 4,″ he wrote on Twitter.
“The guy I spoke to on the plane was very nice and I’m really pleased he loves the game but the facts have got a bit confused somewhere.”
The game in question is believed to be Call of Duty Online, a free-to-play version of the military shooter aimed at the Chinese market.
Developer Infinity Ward previously downplayed the reports of Murray’s involvement in Modern Warfare 4, but did not deny the existence of the game.

Both bundles feature console exclusive content as well. Xbox 360 owners will receive a claw avatar prop and zombie avatar outfit, while PlayStation 3 users will get exclusive dashboard themes.
The ‘Hardened Edition’ will be available in North America for $79.99, while the ‘Care Package’ will retail for $179.99. Pricing for Europe has not been revealed.
PC users will also be able to purchase a Digital Deluxe Edition. This features the same in-game content as the Hardened Edition, with the addition of a download code for Call of Duty: World at War in place of the steelbook case and collectible coins. It will also be priced at $79.99.
Activision have hinted Call of Duty Online could be released globally after Call of Duty Online was announced for China last month.
Activision’s Eric Hirshberg responded to questions from investors and said that the game’s micro-transaction formula could be relevant in other regions.
“I think we look at the Call of Duty Online game in China on its own merit as a great opportunity,”
“That’s not to say that we won’t gain learnings about how it works in the micro-transaction-based format for the game.
“And there are a few other regions where that would be very relevant… but we certainly are not ready to announce any plans in that regard.”
The classic multiplayer map Terminal is now available for FREE download, and is playable on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. The port of the fans favourite map, which takes place in Zakhaev International Airport, can be downloaded by clicking the link below. Enjoy!
