I've searched on Google many times for the answer, but I've only found one person who claims that it exists. I'm a huge fan of hardcore and it's hard for me to distinguish between the enemy and teammates. If there is no option for this in the game settings, would it be possible to alter the config file?

Hire a seeing eye dog that will bite you if you start to aim at a teammate

In the Multiplayer Options, I'm positive there's a Colorblind option. Enable it xD

(I'll try get a screenshot of it)

EDIT: Dam I couldn't find it, I'm positive I saw it on Xbox360 version :S

There is at least an option to change your cross hair color. Not sure about colorblind mode for anything else.

Black Ops is not balanced for color blind.

I'm colorblind too and I miss it alot. I can't distinguish enemy choppers from allied ones etc. Also, alot of times I just shoot at my teammates because if I don't theres a chance its an enemy, lol

Out of curiosity, what colours can you not distinguish, and how sever it is? I've never really understood the extent colorblindness can affect a person.

Hit up JD_2020's twitter, request a colorblind mode! That's all you can do :(

the game is not balanced for color blind. If anything it's a cheat, because you see the game differently than all of us. Not exactly fair.

yeah who chose red/green for teams? Thats the most common colour blind mix! I'm colour blind too, a few different options would suffice such as yellow/blue teams for very quick and easy differention. Or you can pick your own pair of colours that suit your own eyes.
Thinking about it they allowed for the customisation of your gun's dot sight background colour (something completely useless!) but not team colour?

From what I've read, the consoles have an alternate color scheme... The PC does not. I am colorblind as well, but have adapted fairly well to this game.

unfortunately I don't think there is support for this.
you will just have to try and look at the different styles of uniforms to decide whether or not it's an enemy.
Or if there is a spy plane, shoot at the dot and not at the arrow.

Well all you guys can do(in my opinion)

is just get out a Strela-3 and aim at spy planes and choppers and wait till you hear a "teteteeeet" than shoot

I tried playing this game in Black N White(from my monitor I can put it black and white lol)

I did the same

I too am colorblind, it's a pain in the ♥♥♥ on almost all of the maps because the green friendly tag indicator blends in so well with the environment. And of course a lot of the uniforms looks really similar in some cases, the ghillie suits specifically.

Thanks for the answers. It does get irritating at times, but I'm warming up to it. One thing they could do is just get rid of the dame name when you hover over enemies. That would solve all of my problems.

isnt that an option you can change in the menu? - player name indicator

what's stupid is my brother has the xbox version of this game and it has an "alt colorscheme" which pc doesn't have.

PC really got the shaft since it's such a simple color change. I just don't get it.

No, the only options are, fullname, abbreviated or rank. Nothing at all regarding the removal of enemy nameplates. It's a useless design; I honestly don't care who I'm killing.

Rep the man if it works. I know black ops has a colorblind option, but I couldn't remember the command, that may be it.
