On the flip side, Hunters will be able to hone in on your location thanks to a whistle feature. Props will let out a whistling noise every 30 seconds no matter what. Hunters can listen in to hear these whistles, and then inch ever closer to where the Props are hiding. A whistle at the right time can instantly blow a Prop’s cover, and then the Hunters can light them up with some firepower. Either Props remain hidden for the time limit and score some points, or Hunters destroy every Prop and win the round.
Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War isn’t the first Call of Duty game to feature Prop Hunt, but this iteration of the mode seems to be the most popular yet. The recent success of non-traditional multiplayer games like Among Us and Fall Guys has led to players yearning for something different when it comes to online gaming. Prop Hunt is extremely far removed from what most Call of Duty players would expect, and yet it’s really striking a chord with fans. Streamers have been playing the mode non-stop, social media channels have been flooded with praise, and comments keep pouring in to try and convince Activision that Prop Hunt needs to be an everyday option.
