Treyarch’s Game Design Director David Vonderhaar has manned up and admitted via Twitter that he “f*cked up” by including Second Chance in the game.
Second Chance, just like Last Stand, will activate after you’ve received an amount of damage that would be fatal normally, and keeps you alive with your pistol for up to ten seconds.
A lot of people say it sucks and shouldn’t be in Call of Duty games, and I’m sure you do too. Hopefully Treyarch doesn’t include it in their future games*…
*Black Ops 2 reference.^
^Black Ops 2 is unconfirmed.
