Over 60 Billion Dead In The Battle of Call of Duty: Black Ops

Since its launch in November, Treyarch's Call of Duty: Black Ops has racked up more than 5 billion headshots, downed more than a billion aircraft and killed virtual soldiers to the tune of nine times the world's population.

That's about 62 billion and change, based on the U.S. Census Bureau's world population clock.


Activision hit us with the latest mind-numbing stats from the world's most popular online first-person shooter today, courtesy of an infographic that puts Black Ops worldwide violence into perspective. 161 World War II's are fought everyday, they say. More than 1.1 trillion shots have been fired. One of the game's deadliest weapons is an RC car. And you wouldn't believe how many tomahawks have banked off walls, probably resulting in yet another ridiculous kill.

To see how popular Black Ops is (and continues to be) in raw numbers, take a look at all this carnage, now in extra-large infographic form.

We expect the body count to grow with the release of Call of Duty: Black Ops' first map pack, the First Strike DLC, which you can see in action here.


It's heartwarming, isn't it? Millions of people getting to amass virtual killings well into the billions? Feels good.
