Core: -War! For those of you who do not know, it's tug-of-war using five (or three, depending on the map) flags in a line. You push back your enemy to their initial spawn, and try to take it.
-Skirmish A Skirmish is a small battle that no one is prepped for on either side. So...it would be 6v6 with no ScoreStreaks (ScoreStreaks would count as "prepped"); Team Deathmatch (50 kills), Kill Confirmed (50 points), and one round of Domination would be in this playlist.
Hardcore: -Hardcore FFA self-explanitory
Party Games: -Big Head Mode Everyone has a massive head and large hands. It is a melee-playlist, where challenges cannot be completed. The L-trigger does a short dash and is a one-hit kill, that takes about half of a second to recover from (missed or not). The R-trigger would do quick jabs, and would be two hits to kill (70 damage each). No aim-assist
-Reverse Gun-Game You start out with weapons that are easy to use, and gradually get to weapons that are more difficult to use. It's a better test of skill than the other one.
-FFA Capture the Flag Instead of taking the enemy's flag from one place to another, you just take the flag, and earn points as you carry it. The flag carrier is highlighted through the map, and only uses a 5-7 pistol. Everyone else has a KAP-40 with no attachments.
-Treyarch's Zombie Special All players have unlimited ammo and lives. All players use a Tac-40 (I think it's "40"...I never use it over a 5-7) with no attachments. This is a 4v4 variant where the objective is to kill zombies on the maps (large hordes at a time, up to 50 on the map at a time, with fast respawns; all are sprinters with Rnd 10 health; you all have Juggernog and Speed Cola). The team with the most points after 10 minutes wins. Headshots are two-hit kills.
What are your ideas, friends, pals, and e-strangers-who-happen-to-all-go-to-this-board?
I wouldn't mind if they brought back Arms Race. At least in my experience, players that played that mode wouldn't sit in corners all game long and I didn't have to depend on my teammates to help get me dogs and swarms.
