Weapons in Black Ops 4 Multiplayer Rated from Best to Worst

Published

on

Black Ops 4’s multiplayer contains a lot of weapon choices for players to choose from, but not choices are equal.

Naturally, with any game, perfect weapon balance can never truly be acheived. No matter how much fine-tuning the developer does, some weapons will appear above or below the rest. Treyarch has done a decent job so far of applying balance updates, but some clear favorites currently rule the top of the pack.

So, let’s a look through every single weapon in Black Ops 4 Multiplayer and rank them from the best to the absolute worst. The ranking list below is based on gun performance overall as well as on the current usage of each gun by the player base.

Multiplayer Weapon Rankings

  1. Titan
  2. Saug 9mm
  3. Maddox RFB
  4. Spitfire
  5. VKM
  6. Hades
  7. Auger DMR
  8. ICR-7
  9. ABR 223
  10. Cordite
  11. Hellion Salvo
  12. Daemon 3XB
  13. VAPR-XKG
  14. KN-57
  15. Mozu
  16. Rampart 17
  17. SG12
  18. Swordfish
  19. Paladin HHB50
  20. Swat RFT
  21. Strife
  22. MOG 12
  23. GKS
  24. MX9
  25. Koshka
  26. Outlaw
  27. RK 7 Garrison
  28. SDM

Well, there you have it. The official, undisputable list of weapon rankings.

Obviously, we’re only kidding around. Each player’s own rankings may differ as we all encounter different weapons at different times and ranges. The power of other weapons compared to your favorites is generally based upon your own playstyle as well as the opponent’s.

With that said, let’s explain just a few choice rankings you may have questions about.

The reason behind the VKM & Hades placing so highly on our list is due to their stopping power and ability to equip Rapid Fire. This puts their maximum range damage into a league of their own, only rivaled by snipers.

The Paladin is a one-hit kill often times, but the weapon can be unwieldy and so is placed below the middle of the pack.

A plethora of SMGs appears high on the list due to the natural speed of Black Ops 4 and their high fire rates. The exception being the GKS due to its “worst of all worlds” stats which place it in a hard position to fight most other weapons.

Shotguns are placed lower in the ranking due to the limited usage and situational nature. Outside of close range, shotgun users can become a detriment to their teams.

Lawyer gets in trouble with judge for not playing Call of Duty

In a lawsuit involving Activision’s Infinite Warfare title, a lawyer earned the disapproval of a jude for not playing enough Call of Duty.

After failing to conduct proper research for an active lawsuit, a judge has irritatingly deemed that a lawyer has not played enough Call of Duty.

It’s safe to say most people assume that playing video games would have very little impact on proceedings in a courtroom. However, this specific lawsuit involving Activision and game developers Brooks Entertainment proves that with a little more Call of Duty experience embarrassment could have been avoided.

Of course, embarrassment is not the only thing that could have been avoided as there’s no doubt Brooks Entertainment spent a lot of time and money when they decided to sue Activision in 2021.

Call of Duty Infinite Warfare cover

According to legal intelligence news site JD Supra, The lawsuit involved a Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare character who primarily appeared in the game’s campaign by the name of Sean Brooks. Brooks Entertainment alleged the likeness between Sean Brooks and their character Shon Brooks went beyond just similarly sounding names.

They claimed that “Shon Brooks and Sean Brooks both had unlimited resources and missiles; they bring thieves to justice; they traveled to Mars, and both games had scripted game battle scenes take place in a high fashion couture shopping center mall.”

Demonstrating a clear understanding of their source material, it didn’t take long for Activision to point out that several of the claims made in regards to the characters’ likeness were factually misrepresented.

Call of Duty Infinite Warfare

After an Activision lawyer played through Infinite Warfare’s campaign they declared: “it was immediately apparent to me that many (if not virtually all) of the factual allegations in the Complaint were not accurate.”

For starters, they pointed out that Sean Brooks is not the main character of Infinite Warfare as Brooks Entertainment alleged, and neither do they share any physical similarities. Furthermore, Sean Brooks does not take part in a scripted battle scene inside of a shopping mall as the plaintiffs suggested.

On July 12, 2022, the judge eventually agreed with Activision’s statement and dismissed the lawsuit. To make matters worse the judge also, “ordered the plaintiff’s counsel to reimburse Activision for the reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs that it incurred in the litigation.”

In a humiliating turn of events, the judge claimed that the “Plaintiff’s counsel could have easily verified these facts prior to filing the factually baseless Complaint, just as the Court easily verified them within the first hour and a half of playing the game.”

Not only can CoD fans appreciate that high-quality zinger from the court, but the lawsuit proved that not playing enough Call of Duty could be something you come to regret!

Call of Duty fans vote for their favorite Modern Warfare Campaign

The Modern Warfare CoD series has some memorable Campaigns, but which game does the community think offers the best experience?

Call of Duty fans are voting for their favorite Modern Warfare campaign of all time, and it’s no surprise to see which titles are coming out on top.

With Modern Warfare 2 on the way, Call of Duty fans are feeling nostalgic. The community loves discussing and debating previous CoD titles, especially those who have been playing the games since the start.

Even younger fans who have fallen in love with modern CoD titles like Warzone, Modern Warfare (2019), and Black Ops Cold War may have gone back to the previous installments to see what the hype is about.

Regardless, most Call of Duty fans have their opinions about which game had the best Multiplayer, but what about the best Modern Warfare Campaign?

With four titles to choose from, our Twitter page asked fans to vote in a poll for their favorite campaign.

As of July 29, Modern Warfare 2 is in the lead with 49.3% of the votes, with Modern Warfare (2019) and Call of Duty 4 coming in second and third respectively.

It’s no surprise to see the original MW2 winning the votes, as it has some of the most memorable Campaign moments in CoD history, such as the No Russian mission and the devastating death of Ghost.

Perhaps Modern Warfare 2 (2022) will take over its predecessor and become a fan favorite, as players may even get to play the Campaign earlier than expected.

CoD devs reportedly working on “open world RPG” with Infinity Ward job listing

A job listing from Infinity Ward Poland hints at the Call of Duty developers working on a new open-world RPG.

A new job listing from the Call of Duty developers suggests that Infinity Ward’s Poland office is working on a brand-new open-world role-playing game (RPG).

Open-world video games are extremely popular because of the opportunities they provide to players for exploration of large and detailed maps, with titles like Grand Theft Auto 5 being extremely successful.

Now, a new job listing from Infinity Ward Poland appeared for a short while, suggesting that the Call of Duty developers are currently developing a brand-new role-playing game (RPG) with an open-world structure.

In a now-deleted job listing on the Infinity Ward careers page, Activision were looking for someone with experience making “non-linear narratives in open-world games” to work on a “narrative and cinematic experience in an open-world RPG.”

While the developers didn’t reveal what his project is about, the Narrative Director position in the post placed an emphasis on “story, characters, lore, and world-building” for the game that’s in development.

At the time of writing, it’s unconfirmed what exactly this “unannounced AAA project” is called, and one possibility is that it might be a new Call of Duty title as Infinity Ward have never released a game outside of that series.

It’s also possible that this open-world RPG might be an entirely new IP that has no connection to the Call of Duty franchise. We will probably learn more details as the game’s development progresses.

As exciting as this sounds, it’s worth keeping in mind that this is all just speculation based on the now-deleted job listing, and we’ll need to manage our expectations until Infinity Ward officially announce the game.
