In Call of Duty Black Ops 2 it will no longer be possible to use any form of 'Last Stand' or 'Second Chance', confirmed Treyarch to Polygon.
Deathstreaks configured in Modern Warfare 2 and 3, but had been eliminated from Black Ops, with the exception of Second Chance. This would allow players to pull out a gun before dying and get last shots at opponents. But 'Last Stand' sparked many complaints and frustrations from players. Even Treyarch's David Vonderhaar admitted once that the addition of 'Second Chance' had been one of the biggest mistakes in Black Ops.
It looks like Treyarch is taking big steps in making Call of Duty a less frustrating experience. Next to 'Martyrdom', 'Second Chance' is now scrapped from the list.
