In a gesture of Holiday spirit and goodwill towards men, Treyarch has made a plea to all Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 players.

We know a ton of people will be receiving the title as a gift, and most of those people will probably end up as sniper meat. The 'holiday noobs' as they are being called, will be easy pickings for more experienced players. Treyarch hopes to make the whole affair a little less painful.

They released this message this morning on Reddit:

“Let’s talk Christmas Noobs. It’s that time of the year again where thousands of new players join the online ranks for the first time. We’d ask you to go easy on the Christmas Noobs, but we know you won’t,” reads the message. “If you are a Christmas Noob yourself, don’t be bullied. In the Combat Training category you’ll find a great playlist called Boot Camp. This is the best place for a player to get up to speed on the game and all it has to offer.”

Like we said, goodwill towards your fellow man. Let us know which end of the sniper rifle you'll be ending up on this year.
