Activision has dropped the latest Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 trailer, this time focusing on multiplayer and showing off a stack of new gadgets that players will have access to in the futuristic first-person shooter.

Unlike previous iterations in the series, Black Ops 2 is set in the near future, and features an array of new weapons, vehicles and support tools to match this setting. In the trailer, we get a glimpse at several of the new suppression gadgets, like shock charges that are thrown like grenades to incapacitate enemy players with a burst of electricity.

CNET's Jeff Bakalar also pointed out in his take on the trailer that the section at the end, with voice-off commentary, could be a hint that developer Treyarch is building in support for live video-streaming services like Twitch.tv.
