We should have known. Ever since we covered the dog incidents from the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 beta we should have known that these canine terrors would come to dominate the online multiplayer for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. And we have the memes to prove it.
Thanks to the new abilities-based multiplayer in Black Ops 4 characters in the game have special abilities they can use during a match. Nomad is on such specialist and their ability is to be able to call an attack dog into the field to maim and maul enemy players. The problem is that the dog is too powerful.
Since the dog is a specialist ability it's not tied to a kill streak, making the attacking canine far more common on the battlefield. It also eats up bullets like a sponge and barks like the devil. If you hear this little monster barreling towards you, well let's hope you've said your prayers.
Back during the Black Ops 4 beta we noticed that these vicious canines were relentless in their pursuit of prey and that seems to have carried over. Meanwhile the buggy patch on one of the maps that shot the dogs into the sky seems to be fixed so there's no stopping these dogs when they're on the war path.
