Nuketown 24/7 was a special event gametype version of Team Tactical featured in Call of Duty: Black Ops. Every match takes place in Nuketown, as the name suggests. This mode can hold 6-12 players in a lobby (6-10 on the Wii version, as maximum online support can only hold 10 without RAM limitations or lag). This gametype is essentially a Nuketown-only mode, combining the gametype options from Team Tactical and Free for All gametypes, with a maximum of two 6-player teams (5-player teams on the Wii version). It has taken place on every Double XP weekend for Black Ops with the exception of one, featuring Firing Range instead.
Nuketown 24/7 is currently the only gametype where a player can play a 12 person Free-For-All match in Call of Duty: Black Ops outside the PC version (as the latter uses dedicated servers). Also, because of the nature of the playlist, this is the only FFA match where parties are allowed, however the Tactical Insertion is not allowed, following the normal set-up.
As the Double XP weekend is ended via an update, players that started playing before the Double XP weekend ended are still able to access Nuketown 24/7, until they turn off their consoles, thus updating the game once they turn their consoles on again. This gamemode is always very popular with the Black Ops community (even more so than Team Deathmatch) due to its limited availability and the ease at which players can gain large amounts of kills.
On the Xbox 360, Party Chat is allowed during Search and Destroy and Free for All matches, unlike normal Search and Destroy and Free for All.
