Call of Duty: Black Ops 4

Best guns to use in Black Ops 4 Hardcore mode

Published

on

Youtuber, TheXclusiveAce, dives deep into Black Ops 4 Hardcore mode to find out which guns are a cut above the rest.

With game setting updates dropping left and right, keeping track of gun stats may seem like a daunting task. However, as of November 24, one Youtuber has cataloged and organized each and every guns one shot kill ranges for fans to pour over.

Since TheXclusiveAce is specifically talking about Hardcore mode, that means every gun has one shot kill potential, but where the variables lay is range. Ace also specifies these stats only apply to players with no armor, no health boost by Crash, and bullets that are not penetrated by any objects.

“Out of all of the SMGs, the one that feels the best to me in Hardcore is definitely the GKS,” Ace says.

“This just has to do with the fact that it’s extremely accurate, it’s got a very solid one-shot kill potential and you can increase that one-shot kill potential with long barrel as well, which is great.

“Also, since you get the handling of an SMG, this is just a great all-around gun for Hardcore modes.”

In this graphic by TheXclusiveAce, note his inclusion of the long barrel and suppressor attachments that both increase and decrease range.

When talking about Assault Rifles, Ace says “I would likely pick the ICR as the best Assault Rifle in Hardcore modes mainly just due to the fact that it’s extremely accurate and versatile.

“Having said that,” Ace adds, “You really can’t go wrong with any of the Assault Rifles in this game aside from the Maddox.”

In this graphic by TheXclusiveAce, he shows the Rampart has infinite range.

“Out of all of the LMGs, I would say the Hades is definitely your best bet within Hardcore simply because it’s the most forgiving,” the YouTuber says whilst breaking down why that’s his favourite LMG.

In this graphic by TheXclusiveAce, while they all have infinite range, rate of fire is a big factor – which the Hades excels at.

COD 2020 Teasers: Black Ops 4 Summit map, Treyarch social profile

As we opened our new crates that Activision sent through, Black Ops 4’s Summit map got an update.

The screens in the center of the map in Black Ops 4 turned on which seem to match to what some of our slides show:

There’s also a look at clocks of 4 out of the 5 locations that some of us got as part of the slides to see:

These changes do appear to be new, especially the screens with the targets on them. Analyzing older images of the maps showcase that the screens were not showing the same thing.

In addition, Treyarch has updated their cover photo on social channels.

It’s getting cold out there…

Gameplay from Black Ops 4’s canceled campaign mode revealed

Published

A user on Reddit, r/BlackOps4, has shared what appears to be the very first footage of gameplay from the canceled campaign mode of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, which released in October 2018, was the first Call of Duty game to not have a traditional campaign mode, instead opting to have three online-based modes.

Treyarch insisted throughout the year that they really didn’t have plans for a campaign and were focusing on an online connected experience for Black Ops 4, but many reports and sources described the campaign as being too ambitious and canceled because of issues with development.

On Reddit, a user has shared about two minutes of alpha footage of the gameplay of Black Ops 4’s campaign. The campaign, in alpha-state footage (meaning its not complete), had a very similar HUD to the MP experience of Black Ops 4. The user claims that the campaign and MP were supposed to be connected, and that’s why the HUD is so similar.

The gameplay starts by showing a message of “FIND THE AQUILUS CEO.”

Here’s the gameplay footage:

The user who posted this has not said where they got this gameplay footage as of now. He said he only has this footage, alongside an augmented footage of the engine of BO4, which he is not releasing at this time.
