Black Ops 2 Endings Guide – How To Get All Endings

Black Ops 2
Black Ops 2 changes up the formula for the Call of Duty games a bit by introducing alternate endings. Similar to games like Bioshock 2, there are several key events that need to happen in a certain way in order to get a particular ending.

The total number of endings in the game varies due to slight changes, but in general, there are about four main ones. This guide will instruct you on what steps to take in order to get the one you want.

As a note, we’ve already covered the ‘Best’ ending, so see our guide here. As a result this guide covers the other 3.
