One of YouTube’s users,01Maverick10, the YouTube user who discovered and cracked the code, found out there was and put up an explainer video to help other gamers do the same. And he claiming that he is the first person to crack the hidden code on the recently released Call of Duty: Black-Ops. This code break is said to reveal some sort of plot twist. Beyond the computer terminal logins and servers which crackers are still working on Treyarch also hid messages in each single player mission’s intel data.
The true accomplishment of cracking this code is noticing that there was a code there to break at all. Anyone who’s played the game (or most other FPS’s in the last decade) has seen the ‘mission intel’ that appears at the bottom corner of the screen when you start a mission often including what most would take as random numbers or gibberish. He suggests that at the start of each level as a part of the mission intel (FPS gamers will know that this is in the bottom left corner) there is a ‘designate code’ and a ‘transmission number’ and the key to finding the code lies here.
Taking each “Transmission Number” to equate to a letter in the alphabet (01 =A, 02 = B, etc.) and each “Designate Code” (Alpha, Bravo, Charlie, etc.) also corresponding to a letter, Maverick pierced the veil of mystery surrounding the code.
