Bullet drop has seen a lot more attention in this years Call of Duty. Use this guide to be better prepared in your next encounter.
Since players will be dealing with much longer distances in Blackout than they would normally be used to in Multiplayer, it’s important to know how far their guns can shoot. While this may have been a hard thing to test out early in Black Ops 4’s life, the inclusion of Custom Games make it a whole lot easier.
Youtubber “TheXclusiveAce” does just that and breaks down every gun in Blackouts bullet drop with and without attachments. He does his testing near the Turbine area of the map by shooting a wind turbine from afar.
Beginning with sniper rifles, the Outlaw, Koshka, Paladin, and SDM all have the same bullet drop. They also have the least bullet drop of any gun in the game.
Coming in at second place, the VKM 750 and Essex Model 87 are tied for the second place in terms of least bullet drop. A little under that is the rest of the Assault Rifles, Tactical Rifles, and LMGs.
The rest of the guns coming from the SMG and Pistol classes all have remarkably more bullet drop and can be seen in the graphic below.
Ace was surprised to find out that when using the suppressor the travel time and bullet drop did not change at all. It does reduce range however, but very slightly.
When using Extended Barrel, Ace discovered that bullet drop is reduced by 40-50% and travel time is reduced by 25-30% based on weapon. “This will make it much easier to hit targets while moving” Ace says.

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
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.
