Posted on June 28, 2011, CJ Miozzi Treyarch Quietly Launches Black Ops Mod Tools

A month ago, we reported that Black Ops added mod support in a then-recent patch, hinting that the official modding tools were right around the corner.

Sure enough, a beta of the Mod Tools was released on June 22 along with a new patch. Despite the amount of hype surrounding these tools, Treyarch didn’t make a big show publicizing the release.

For the time being, the tools are only available for download through Steam and on the PC platform. In order to install the Mod Tools, you’ll need three things: an account on Steam, the Steam platform installed on your computer, and, of course, Black Ops installed.

The Mod Tools can then be found in Steam under Library > Tools. The tools will be installed in your Call of Duty: Black Ops game directory, and mods are filed under — surprise, surprise — the mods folder in the root directory, where they can be deleted.

Visit the Treyarch wiki for information on how to get started with mod-making.
