Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 Grudge Match at Treyarch

So on Tuesday the Nerd Reactor team added a new item on the list of “Cool things I got to do in my life”, which was actually 2 things now that I think about it:

-Going to Treyarch Studios

-Playing Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 with Torrey Smith and Ray Rice of the Super Bowl XLVII champions Baltimore Ravens

It was really fun way to spend a day actually, watching 2 NFL stars go head to head in a game of Black Ops 2 with all the new DLC maps from the pack “Uprising” that was released just that morning on the Xbox 360.

2 players you definitely don't want to cross, either on the football field or on Black Ops 2.

In a Grudge match that was to the best of three, everyone in the room got to be involved in the grudge match by playing in a few modes with them. These include Demolition and Capture the Flag in 6v6 matches with both Smith and Rice leading each team. Afterwards we managed to get a few words with Torrey Smith.

NR: On your off season, what do you normally like to do?

Smith: Playing video games. I rotate between Call of Duty and FIFA. I love fishing and spending time with my family and dogs as well.

NR: If you had a chance to to add anything to the game [Black Ops 2], what would you add?

Smith: Myself

NR: Do you play Call of Duty often?

Smith: We all play a lot, our team bonds alot, we call each other and say what time we’ll be on. Everyone has their headsets, talk trash to each other and we all have a good time.

So at the end of the day we all had a good set of laughs, tried out the new DLC “Uprising” maps which is now available (my personal favorite is “Encore” because of the 2 awesomely good sniper spots) and just all around had a good time hanging out with Ray Rice, Torrey Smith and the guys at Treyarch.

End of Interview

You can watch the video to see who won. It was a fun event showcasing how good Ray Rice and Torrey Smith are behind the controller, especially when pride, glory and owning your opponent are on the line.

Here’s a quick little montage of what happened:

What do you say to describe a guy who only sleeps 4 days out of the week? Probably a lot but if you ever see an obscure story about some kind of food product, indie game or something that doesn't quite fit on this site, you can (almost) guarantee this guy wrote it. Whether or not he was awake while it was written is anybody's guess.
