BlackCell Operator Arthur has a K9 named Merlin who you can bring along with you in multiplayer, Warzone, and DMZ modes. This is another feature that is being incorporated for the first time in CoD and is a great initiative. However, consider this pet a cosmetic only as it cannot be harmed.

It can only aid the player in performing finishing moves. Enemy players cannot harm these pets as well.

Battle Buddy Feature

The BlackCell battle also introduces the Battle Buddy, a mini announcer in the game. The mini announcer in this case will be Gwen who is going to be the one to call out when a killstreak is active, kills, and most of the other notable events.

In addition to unlocking Gwen, due to the Tier skips, you will also unlock the two new weapons; the Carrack .300 Sniper Rifle and the FR Avancer Assault Rifle. The verdict of these two weapons being meta or not isn’t out yet. With this skip, you can instantly level them up and make loadouts.
