"Before the future could be won, history had to be written. Exposing that story exclusively on PlayStation Vita, Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified explores original fiction in the Call of Duty Black Ops universe with an all-new campaign of Special Ops missions. Optimized for gamers on-the-go, Call of Duty Black Ops: Declassified delivers the most intense handheld Call of Duty experience to date, including both Special Ops Story mode and Multiplayer combat tailored for the PS Vita."
Game Description

Call of Duty: Black Ops: Declassified is a first-person shooter video game developed by Nihilistic Software and available exclusively on the PlayStation Vita. Formally announced at E3 2012, the game was released on November 13th, 2012. Black Ops: Declassifed serves as a link between Call of Duty: Black Ops and Call of Duty: Black Ops II.

Copies of the game also include a digital download of Call of Duty: Roads to Victory which has been ported to the PlayStation Vita.


Black Ops: Declassified fully utilizes the Vita's dual-analogue sticks, as well as a variety of the Vita's features. The Vita's touchscreen is used for several actions. Grenades, for instance, are accessed via the touchscreen. Additionally, knifing has also been mapped to the touchscreen. The Vita's rear touchpad's sole purpose is holding the players breath while aiming a sniper. Sprinting has been mapped to "down" on the d-pad, due to the Vita's lack of R3 and L3 buttons. 

Additionally, Black Ops: Declassified also used the Vita application "near", allowing nearby players to connect with each other and share Create-a-Class loadouts for the Multiplayer. However, support for "near" stopped in March 2015 and the application was terminated in July 2017.



In January 1990, following the incident in Panama, Ryan Jackson is tasked with inquiring into the careers of Frank WoodsAlex Mason, and Jason Hudson, reviewing various reports of missions from 1975 to 1982, including one mission involving an unspecified CIA operative.


The campaign is divided into 10 missions called "Operations" with Frank Woods being playable in 5 missions, Alex Mason in 4 missions, and one mission where the players take control of an unknown CIA operative.


Time Trials[]

Main article: Time Trials

Time Trials are singleplayer missions taking place on training courses and working similarly to tutorial missions allowing players to familiarize with the game mechanics and controls while reaching for the best score.


Main article: Hostiles

Hostiles is a new game mode in Call of Duty: Black Ops: Declassified comparable to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3's Survival Mode. Hostiles involves surviving endless waves of enemies on 5 different maps from multiplayer. The player will also receive Care Package drops between waves, which can contain ammo, weapons, or a Killstreak in the form of a Mortar Strike or a Sentry Gun. The player always starts with a different semi-automatic pistol depending on the map and has limited equipment in the form of two-four M67 Grenades or five Semtexes and two-five Flashbangs.




Multiplayer in Call of Duty: Black Ops: Declassified supports eight players via Wi-Fi or Ad Hoc across six maps. Modes available are Free for all, Team DeathmatchKill Confirmed, Drop Zone, and Team Tactical. Create-a-Class is present, letting the player choose a primary weapon with two attachments, a secondary weapon with one attachment, three perks (one of each tier), a lethal grenade, a tactical grenade, and three killstreaks. Weapon levelling is also present, similar to how it is in Modern Warfare 3 and Black Ops II, with 20 levels for each primary weapon and 10 for each secondary weapon. It is possible to Prestige, although there are no known rewards for doing so. There are 12 perks (four for each tier) and seven killstreaks. To play online multiplayer, however, the player's "NAT type" cannot be "type 3". Note that this does not affect other online functionalities in the game; the player will still have access to the leaderboards for the campaign, Time Trials and Hostiles.

Party Matchmaking[]

Although the game does not have Private Match, it does have an option called "Party Matchmaking". How it works is players within the "Party Lobby" are able to vote on maps and play against each other with out other players joining. XP can still be earned while playing, which can allow boosting.


Following an update on November 14th, 2012, Ad-Hoc multiplayer was added for offline multiplayer. Despite being offline, the host is NOT allowed to customize the game mode settings. Instead, players vote on the maps much like an online lobby. Unlike the online multiplayer, players are at the max level with everything unlocked.
