Haymaker 12

  • The original name for the Haymaker in the pre-alpha phase was the "FAS-X12".

  • The original names for the KN-44 was the "ARAK" in the alpha phase and the "ARK-7" in the beta phase.

L-CAR 9

  • The original name for the L-CAR 9 was "Spyder" in the beta phase.

Zombies

Cut Customization

  • Pre-alpha screenshots reveal that Black Ops III Zombies would have supported customisable outfits for the playable characters, unlocked through gaining XP. The icons for Primis are from their Black Ops II renders, while the icons for the Shadows of Evil characters are taken from concept art.

Cut Difficulty Meters

  • During its pre-alpha phase, Black Ops III Zombies had three difficulties, each being harder than the last:
Survivor
Hunter
Exterminator

"Let it Ride Tokens"

  • During its pre-alpha phase, Let It Ride Tokens were an earnable currency within Zombies which could be earned by exploring Zombies maps. They were redeemable for Mega Chew Bubble Blast (an early version of GobbleGum). At some point during development, Let It Ride Tokens were replaced with Liquid Divinium.

Cut GobbleGums

  • Brainiac
  • Center of Attention
  • Firestarter
  • Melee Master
  • Toxic Vindicator

Oddities

  • The codename of the L3FT.E melee weapon is "melee_prosthetic", which suggests the melee weapon was originally a prosthetic hand.
