Call of Duty Elite Shutting Down Friday; Free COD Ghosts DXP Being Given Away

Image: Charlie Intel

Activision has announced that their Call of Duty Elite service is shutting down completely this Friday, February 28th, 2014. COD Elite was used for Modern Warfare 3 and Black Ops 2 but was phased out for the Call of Duty mobile app being used for COD Ghosts. After this Friday, you will no longer be able to access stats for MW3 and BO2 on mobile devices or the Elite website. However, you can still access those stats in the games themselves.

If you want an extra incentive to use the Elite app or website one last time, here’s one. Any users who have logged into COD Elite after January 1st, 2014 will receive 2 hours of Double XP in COD Ghosts (at some point in the future). So, if you want that free Double XP, I suggest you login to the Elite app or

Activision has provided a Shutdown FAQ with more information.

Call of Duty Black Ops II: Origins Easter Egg Guide

This week in the Achievement Guide Spotlight, we’re talking a look at our guide by Flatty and Trysten for the Lost Little Girl achievement in Call of Duty: Black Ops II. Like the other iterations of this series, these guides are designed for players to unlock the covered achievements with a minimal amount of pain and suffering.

“Lost Little Girl” is the easter egg achievement that can only be earned on the Origins zombie map in the Apocalpyse DLC for Call of Duty: Black Ops II. The guide includes a description of the steps required to unlock the achievement. The locations of the parts for the elemental staffs and steps on how to upgrade them are also included in this guide.

An easier way to go for the achievement is to enlist the help of Team Deathmachine, our achievement team dedicated to slaying zombies and exposing easter eggs. All you need to do is post here with what you need and the times you are available to play.

Call of Duty Black Ops II: TranZit Achievement Guide

The Achievement Guide Spotlight is a weekly feature where we take a look at one of the achievement guides written by members of SIP. These writers have plenty of experience in unlocking these achievements and are often members of our elite achievement teams. The guides should be followed in order to minimize the pain and frustration in trying to grab these achievements.

This week we’re looking at our guide by TangoDown for the achievements that can only be earned on TranZit. There are 10 achievements worth 200 gamerscore, the last of which is the easter egg achievement “Tower of Babble”. (Note: This guide only describes Richtofen’s path to the easter egg.)

While the guide is very detailed, there often is no replacement for in-game help. To get such help, be sure to enlist the help of our dedicated Black Ops Zombie team, Team Deathmachine.

It’s a party and Zombies are invited… TO DIE!!

Zombies, zombies, zoooommmbeeeezzzz!!! This article features all things “Zombies!” From team members, to Milestone achievements, to recruiting. If you are alive, and like to kill the undead, take a gander at the updates with Team DeathMachine.

First off, if you weren’t aware already, I would like to formally announce that Team DeathMachine Captain, TangoDown, has resigned. He, along with other former members, were great assets to building the team to what it is today. His screaming will be dearly missed. Unfortunate for us, fortunate for him, he has chosen to pursue RL dreams… What a selfish guy… LOL! J/K! We all wish you the best, Mike!
