Call of Duty: Black Ops is a first-person shooter video game made by Treyarch. It is published by Activison. It is available for Xbox 360, Windows , PS3, Wii and most recently, Xbox One.

Within 24 hours of the game going on sale, It sold more than 7 million copies, 5.6 million in the U.S. and 1.4 million in the U.K., breaking the record which was set by its predecessor Modern Warfare 2 by 2.5 million copies. The game's setting is in the Cold War. In Cuba, the game has been condemned from release because it features a special forces member trying and failing to kill a young Fidel Castro, killing instead a body-double. The game was also supposed to be banned in Germany because of graphic violence.

There are three modes of play. These are campaign, multiplayer and zombies.
