Call of Duty: Black Ops Wager Match Trailer

Get the official rundown on all the different wager match types in Call of Duty: Black Ops multiplayer. Wager matches are one on one "adrenaline junkie" matches that pit players against each other for points. The top 3 players are "in the money."

Here are the play types

  • One in the Chamber: In the match everyone spawns in with a pistol, one bullet and three lives. If you kill someone you get to take their bullet. If you fire and miss you're left with melee.
  • Sticks and Stones: You spawn with a crossbow, ballistic knife and a tomahawk. If you hit a player with the tomahawk you instantly bankrupt that player.
  • Gun Game: You get a series of progressive weapons in this match. With every kill you get a better weapon. The first person to progress through all of the weapons wins. But if you get knifed you get sent back one tier.
  • Sharp Shooter: In this one all players start with the same randomly selected weapon. You get to use that gun for a fixed amount of time and then everyone gets switched out to the next weapon. With each kill you earn a perk and eventually a scoring multiplier.
