* CallBack: The player can find a hidden text file where the main player character of the game, Mason, recounts his time in a Russian gulag; he notes early on that Reznov told him stories about Dimitri Petrenko, the player character of ''World at War'' that this game is a sequel to, and mentioned that he and Mason were much alike.

''Call of Duty: Black Ops'' is the sixth game in the originally UsefulNotes/WorldWarII-themed FPS series ''VideoGame/CallOfDuty''. Like ''VideoGame/ModernWarfare'', it starts a new sub-series set in a new setting, but unlike ''Modern Warfare'', it takes place during the height of the UsefulNotes/ColdWar. It serves as a sequel to the Treyarch-developed ''Call of Duty: World at War''. You play as Alex Mason, a {{CIA}} operative [[FramingDevice being interrogated about his involvement in various operations]], from an assassination attempt on UsefulNotes/FidelCastro to UsefulNotes/TheVietnamWar and beyond. The bulk of the game plays out in a series of {{Flashback}}s that recall the many operations Mason participated in.

* LimitedSpecialCollectorsUltimateEdition: Available in standard, hardened and prestige editions. The prestige edition includes a working replica of the RC-XD, which is essentially an RC toy car with the frame removed and explosives added. Presumably the replica doesn't blow up.

* BerserkButton: Never, ''ever'' hurt, or God forbid, kill a friend of Reznov, especially one that he fought alongside for an entire war. Even if it takes 23 years and a proxy, he WILL come back, and he WILL have his revenge. [[spoiler: Not even death can stop him.]]

** Averted with Petrenko, but subverted with Reznov and Kravchenko. Reznov basically is the GoodCounterpart of his voice actor Creator/GaryOldman's BigBad character [[Film/AirForceOne Ivan Korshunov]], while Kravchenko is a hulking version of his voice actor Creator/AndrewDivoff, or perhaps a human version of Divoff's known horror film character [[Film/{{Wishmaster}} the Djinn]].
