Popular battle royale games like Fortnite make it easy to figure out which weapons are the best by using a color-coded system. At the time of this writing, no such system exists for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4's Blackout battle royale mode, and so some players, especially those new to the game, may not know which guns they should grab and which they should ignore.
Figuring out which weapon are the best in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is made even more difficult thanks to most of the guns looking similar to one another. Considering this, players will need to learn the names of the best guns in the game, and while "best gun" is somewhat subjective, the following weapons are largely considered the best Blackout has to offer.
- Paladin HB50
- Ray Gun
Even if players manage to find some of the best guns in Black Ops 4's Blackout mode, they will still need to bring plenty of skill to the table as well. Playing smart will also play a large factor, as a player who carelessly runs around the map instead of being cautious may end up getting shot from behind and won't even have a chance to use any of the high quality guns they may have found while looting.
Besides guns, there's other equipment that Black Ops 4 players will also want to collect. Armor is hugely important to success in Blackout, with players able to find it lying around in many parts of the game world. The best armor is hard to find though, with level 3 armor almost exclusively spawning in the mystery box or in supply drops. As a matter of fact, some of the best guns also spawn in the mystery box, so players may want to build their Blackout strategy around getting to it as fast as possible.
Once players manage to equip themselves with the best weapons in Blackout, their chances of winning should increase dramatically. However, fans should keep in mind that Treyarch could make changes to the game that will impact the usefulness of the weapons listed here, plus brand new top tier weapons could be added in future updates as well.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is out now for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
