COD Black Ops 4: The Best Weapons to Use in Blackout

There is no denying that having the right weapon can significantly change your playing style. However, much like any competitive shooter, there are always going to be weapons that are simply much better than others. 

With over thirty different weapons spread randomly across the map, it can often be a little overwhelming when it comes to deciding which weapons you should keep or throw away.

Thankfully though, we have compiled a list of some of the best weapons that you should definitely consider picking up in Call of Duty’s battle royale mode, Blackout.

With precision that can’t be matched in the AR category and it’s ability to wreck opponents at both long and close range distances, the VAPR is arguably the best all-around Assault Rifle currently in the game. Pair it with a x2 scope and you’ll be almost unstoppable.  

When it comes to an all-around great assault rifle, there is no denying that the KN-57 is perfect for all skill levels. With controllable recoil and decent damage and accuracy stats, the AK47 style rifle is great in almost all situations.

When paired with a complete loadout of attachments and a x2 scoop, the KN-57 is definitely one of the more reliable assault rifles that you should consider picking up.

If you’ve played Blackout, then you will be all too familiar with just how difficult it can be to finish an opponent due to the rather lengthy kill times and beefy armor. Thankfully though, the Maddox RFB is a great solution to this problem.

With a high fire rate, little to no recoil, and an extended magazine, the Maddox RFB is an all-around great balanced Assault Rifle that makes as an ideal choice for any newcomers or veterans that are looking for a reliable weapon that is easy to master.

There is no question about it, Auger DMR may very well be the best overall weapon in Blackout. The semi-automatic tactical rifle isn’t just extremely powerful, but it is also very accurate and can even double as a substitute for a sniper rifle simply due to its sheer power.

Although it may be rare, it is a great universal weapon that can be used successfully for sniping, mid-range encounters, and even close quarter combat if you’re quick enough on the trigger.

If you can manage to get your hands on this weapon, your opponent’s better be worried, as the Auger DMR should be considered as the ultimate battle royale weapon.

Like the Auger DMR, the Swordfish is among one of the best weapons in the game. With the ability to turn the weapon into a full automatic by tapping the trigger fast enough, the Swordfish not only excels in accuracy but it is also ideal for those mid to long range encounters.

If you can’t get your hands on an Auger DMR, the Swordfish would definitely make for a great substitute.

Only obtainable through killing zombies, the Zweihander is an absolute beast of a weapon that can be used in either close quarter combat or even at lengthy distances. This unique Zombies LMG has an enormous clip and the ability to deal huge amounts of damage in a short period of time.

Despite its lengthy reload time, the Zweihander is a must have weapon and should always be picked up when encountered.

It is worth noting though, that if you do intend on using the Zweihander, it does go through ammunition very quickly, so always make sure you keep a watchful eye on your ammo.

Unfortunately, obtaining a Zweihander isn’t always going to be possible every match. For this reason, you should definitely consider the Titan – the only other LMG within Blackout.

Despite it’s rather mediocre reload time and heavy weight, the Titan makes up for it with its limited recoil while aiming down the sight – especially while crouching or going prone. The Titan also has the largest magzine size of any other weapon in Blackout, giving it a massive advantage over other weapons. 

While you wouldn’t necessarily use the Titan as a primary weapon, it is a great secondary choice, as it can come in handy when you need to unleash a flurry of bullets into your opponents.

With the ability to deal some rather devastating damage from mid-to-long range distances, you simply cannot go wrong when selecting the Titan.

Thanks to its insanely fast firing rate and high damage capabilities, the Spitfire is an absolute beast when it comes to close quarter combat. Although the weapon may struggle in those longer-distance encounters, there is no denying that the Spitfire is one of the best weapons to use during the beginning of the game and especially while navigating tight spaces.

It is also recommended that the Spitfire should only ever be used as a secondary weapon due to its rather poor long-distance abilities.

Only obtainable by killing zombies, the Ray Gun is one of the most iconic weapons in Black Ops history.

Despite the Ray Gun’s terribly slow bullet travel time that makes the gun frustratingly difficult to use, it is its ability to instantly kill your opponents that makes it one of the most devasting weapons in Blackout.

If you are willing to risk it, the Ray Gun is well worth the time and effort that it takes to obtain, plus there is no denying that it is absurdly fun to obliviate your opponents in one shot.

Let’s face it, both the Paladin HB50 and Koshka sniper rifles are both amazing weapons and each have their own advantages and disadvantages. The Koshka has a much faster firing rate but falls short in its damage abilities. Whereas the Paladin is much slower but has the ability to kill in just one to two shots.

With that being said though, when it comes to selecting the better sniper rifle it ultimately comes down to personal preference and how you best use the weapon.

It is important to note, that both weapons are very loud and will quickly draw the attention of any surrounding players. For that reason, you will always want to kill your opponent as fast as possible, which is why the Paladin may just have the upper hand if you know how to use it correctly.

When it comes to shotguns, there isn’t much of a difference between the SG12 and the Mog 12 as both are able to perform devastating blows to the head and chest. While both shotguns have a decent amount of damage capabilities, the SG12 is simply the better pick thanks to its automatic abilities, which definitely comes in handy when facing off against those with an assault rifle.

However, shotguns should never be considered an end-game strategy as they are simply way too underpowered when compared to other weapons such as LMG’s and Assault Rifles, making you an easy target to get picked off at long distances or even in close quarters when caught off guard.

In what was once an exclusive Zombies weapon, players can now experience the classic Bowie Knife in Blackout.

Much like the Combat Knife, the Bowie Knife has the capability to deliver devastating 1 hit kills, making the weapon an ideal choice for those perfect close encounters that don’t necessarily require the unneeded noise of a gun.

The Bowie Knife can be found in several different locations in Blackout: Equipment Stashes, Zombie drops, and even as weapon pickups in randomized Zombie locations.
