Conjecture
This article or section involves something that has not been specifically named.
The name(s) presented could be conjectural.
Reason: "Judd's trial" is assumed from the way quotes in the game's files are ordered and Judd giving the player the trial. The names of the trials are based on the game's files. For example, trial #4 in the game's files is ordered as Tips_4_Trial. Except for trial Special Weapon, which is named Tips_SpecialWeapon_Trial.

Judd's Trials are tutorials for in-game mechanics and weapons. When talking to Judd in the lobby, he will give the player advice. Sometimes this advice is paired with a trial. The player can repeat the trial by talking to Judd again right after one is completed. Only after starting another match and then returning to Judd, will he give the player a different piece of advice.
