There’s a lot to learn in Black Ops 4 Blackout with its battle royale game experience. And for some of you, probably already become expert on Blackout. On the other hands, some of you might have been frustrated to play this battle royale game, which I know for sure, it won’t make you give up on this game though.

In this article, I will give you guides for General Battle Royale, Survival, And Combat Tips. Make sure you read carefully to improve your gameplay.

Black Ops 4 Blackout General Battle Royale tips

These tips are useful for you whether you are a beginner or aiming to improve your gameplay, here you can check all of them below:

  • Aim for a balanced loadout – it sounds obvious, but just because you find a rocket launcher or a sniper, that doesn’t mean you should necessarily pick it up. You need to be capable of fighting at long, medium, and short ranges at all times, and if you have to sacrifice one of those capabilities it should be long-range – medium and short are the most frequent encounters, and the hardest to escape if you don’t have the right gear.
  • Doors are windows are crucial tools – all doors start closing, and all windows un-smashed. If you find an open door or smashed window anywhere, enemies have been here, and you should plan accordingly.
  • Ignore downed enemies when fighting several at once – you will see so many beginners die in squad gunfights because they focus on eliminating downed enemies rather than switching to other targets. Unless you can do so very quickly and safely, it’s not worth it in the heat of battle. Focus on those that can kill you first!
  • Make sure you stay alert for their teammates – your instinct is to go in for the final kill, or even relax and tend to your fallen teammates, but chances are other players are zeroing in on your position. Plus, you can use these downed adversaries as bait.
  • Perfect the battle royale wave – never stand still, even when you think you’re safe. Always wiggle just slightly from left to right, by about one step each way. This is to stop enemies from lining up sniper shots on you easily while you sit there blissfully unaware.
  • Sneak your way into the final few survivors – but while it’s a great way to get to the final few, it won’t help you master the mechanics. Practice by heading to ‘hot drop’ locations – large, high-loot areas under the flight path with lots of other players – or even by practicing your twitch reactions in regular multiplayer.
  • Adapt to what you have – this ties into our point on gear above, but if all you have is a shotgun and a pistol, don’t bother engaging at long range. Instead, avoid getting spotted by enemies and sneak up on them for the close-quarters kill.
  • Loot is great bait if you’re camping – hide inside a building, with line-of-sight on some great loot on the floor, and wait for an enemy to burst in and get distracted snaffling the good stuff so you can ambush and take them out.

  • Squads are very different from playing solo – communication becomes an essential skill, with the team that communicates the best often beating more mechanically skilled players, so learn how to call things out quickly and clearly. “Second floor, blue building, third window from left” for instance is much clearer than “that building over there upstairs”. Constantly communicate – and have an agreed call for when you all need to go quiet on the mics to listen to footsteps – and remember to use the numbers and directions on your HUD’s compass!
  • Keep the circle to your back when you get towards the mid and late game – by which we mean, stay just beside the line of the blue danger zone at all times, and move in with it to the safe zone, then stop and wait on the edge there when it stops closing in until it starts to move again. It means you can’t get attacked from behind, because anything behind you would be taking heavy damage in the gas, allowing you to focus on what’s in front and to the sides.

Blackout exploration and survival tips

  • There’s a bunch of vehicles – quadbikes for ferrying one or two players, while boats, trucks, and helicopters can carry up to four – open-backed vehicles you can ride in just by jumping up onto them, rather than pressing an ‘interact’ button to climb inside.
  • There’s a Grapple Gun to help you get about (equip it like a grenade).
  • Wingsuits have a severe drop from the helicopter, which is good if you want to get playing faster, and like we mentioned there’s also significantly more range than in other battle royales.
  • You can deploy your wingsuit in-game, when at a suitable height, like in Fortnite, by holding jump in mid-air (from top of Construction Site for example).
  • Health drops are surprisingly severe for running out of breath underwater – you can’t stay down there for more than a few seconds at a time.
  • Fresh areas appear to be zombie locations (like Nuketown and Asylum) while named locations at the fringes of the map (like Construction Site) are full of loot and slightly fewer other players – we’ll be looking at loot locations more closely as time goes by.
  • Learn the map as best you can – map knowledge is hugely important in battle royale games in general, and will often be the difference between good and great players.

  • Boats are probably the secret best vehicle in Blackout – even though they initially appear less ‘mobile’ due to their waterbound nature, they can also get to places other players won’t expect, and much more quietly than a loud truck or chopper. It’s also a viable way of hiding on the map until the final waves.
  • Helicopters, though fast and able to transport an entire squad with ease, are loud and easily shot down with missile launchers, so use at your peril. Helicopters can be a useful way to locate enemy players if you fancy risking it. Rise into the air, and if you get locked on by a missile or shot at with bullets, then drop down as soon as you can.
  • Using any vehicles in the final few circles is ill-advised – as they attract more attention than being on foot. They are at their best to transport you and your team over large distances in the opening few circles.

Blackout combat tips

  • It’s hard to see enemies from a distance, and similarly, it’s very hard to hear enemy footsteps, even up close, so be prepared to get shot in the back.
  • Inside multi-story buildings footsteps are much louder, and mastering your ability to hear where a player is in relation to you (okay they’re above you, but where above you?) is essential.
  • Without armor, time to kill is only marginally higher, and higher-quality armor seems to be pretty rare.
  • Level 3 armor is rather overpowered as things stand, but we can probably expect this to change.
  • View the Kill Cam – a Call of Duty staple (provided you don’t have teammates still active in the match, of course!) – to see how you died. Use it to learn how to improve!
  • Use a wingsuit to descend on the map. A useful difference is your drop is faster than other Battle Royale games, getting you into the action faster.

  • Positioning is key – think about the terrain and where you are, and attack enemies accordingly. Flank enemies when in squads and use the higher ground for line-of-sight advantage over them.
  • Distraction is a great tactic if your enemy isn’t quite sure where you are – lob a spare grenade in one direction and then move around in the other to get the drop on them, just like you’re playing a stealth game.
  • You can shoot through thin walls, like corrugated metal! This is great when you know an enemy’s camping inside a small hut or building, for instance.
  • Be tactical about how and when you reveal your position – if two sets of enemies are fighting, should you engage and let them know where you are? Or should you let them get each other down to low health, wait for one squad or player to lose, and then finish off the other when they relax and think they’re safe?
  • The Trophy System is great to save for the end of matches, as they can help defend you against projectiles thrown against you when you’re bedded in and defending against others.
  • Perks are special abilities which increase your sensitivity to sound, showcase nearby loot or your teammates, and much more. They are only temporary, so take note of what you pick up and when’s best to use them. If you can, save them until the end of a match to give you an edge.

Now are you ready to jump in the Blackout Battle Royale?

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare

Every one of the gossipy tidbits about the new Call of Duty was right and this game is named Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. In addition, it will have “rethinking” the Modern Warfare sub-establishment. Limitlessness Ward close by numerous other gaming organizations like Raven Software and Beenox is building up this game. The trailer of the game has been discharged just as the discharge date which is 25 October 2019 and it will be accessible on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

This game isn’t a spin-off rather it is a reboot, they did it on the grounds that there was a lot of things that occurred in the MW3 like atomic annihilation, the Russian intrusion of the US. From that point onward, the designers at Infinity Ward began to figure what they ought to do in the following game, they understood something that they required a fresh start.

Jacob Minkoff, the single-player plan executive on the new Modern Warfare said that “There were simply such a significant number of things that made it look somewhat like the world we see today,”. He included “To make another Modern Warfare game in 2019, we needed to put to bed that old storyline. However, it’s as yet Modern Warfare.”

There will likewise be crusade mode in this game and it sounds crazy. It was accounted for by PC Gamer that in this game you will play as a Special Forces operator and as a renegade. Exceptional Forces’ storyline will have an extremely famous character in it which is nonother than Captain John Price, who showed up in the first Modern Warfare diversions. Then again, you will likewise play as a Rebel who isn’t outfitted with innovative apparatus, rather, you will have extemporized weapons and will complete many Guerrilla Tactics.

Jacob Minkoff from Infinity Ward said that as a radical you will have weapons like Molotov mixed drinks, IEDs, and above all else, you will have unrivaled numbers. This appears to be stunning and it would seem that Call of Duty is coming back to its foundations. I am very cheerful that there will be a COD game that will intensely concentrate on narrating rather than Battle Royal.

Treyarch is facing strong criticism over the decision of disabling Black Ops 4 Stat Tracking. Many Players have complained about the issue so far and the complain count is increasing every day.

Call of Duty Black Ops 4 has recently received a massive update on March 1 which included lots of changes and new features. With some fixes and minor updates for Multiplayer and World League, the patch may have included some update which removed the stat tracking option. It not confirmed yet that whether the tracking has been disabled through update or not. There are some speculations about the changes that were made in API of Call of Duty to disable the stat tracking. Now players do not have access to their game data. If you try to search for it, you’ll receive an error message displaying “not permitted” on the screen.

Apparently, this stat tracking option has not only affected the in-game stats but also third-party stating website. There are some sites like “Call of Duty Tracker” which provides Call of Duty Black Ops 4 player’s stats. It seems like their algorithm is also influenced by the changes in API. Although the web developers at COD Tracker did manage to design fix for the issue, still they announced that the website is no longer up to date. According to them, to keep the website up to date, they need the support of Treyarch or Activision and without it, it is not possible for them to update players’ game profiles. Their recent tweet stated that:

“Our temporary fix no longer works. COD Stats are not updating again.

Without @Activision or @TreyarchPC help, it looks like we will no longer be able to do stats for Call of Duty.”

A user at reddit showed his anger at Treyarch by posting a furious message on the website directly targeting the developers at Call of Duty to not doing their job properly. His post said that Treyarch and Activision promised game stats and leaderboards before but so far, they have failed to fulfill this promise. According to BMilla9, this step has been taken to hide the actual player count from the world. It is no secret that Call of Duty series has lost a big chunk of its player base in the last few years and it is surely embarrassing for them.

Call of Duty Black Ops 4 League Play Tips & Tricks

Call of Duty Black Ops 4 has received a massive update few days ago which included a number of new features like Heist Operation and League Play. League play was long awaited by players due to its competitiveness. Activision has added the esports-centric World League in the game. If you are not familiar with this mode, don’t worry. In this article, we will tell you all there is to know about World League Play in Call of Duty Black Ops 4.

League Play is a limited time ranked mode that is set by Call of Duty World League rules. You get to play certain hold games like Hardpoint, Search and Destroy (SND) and Control. To start a league play, players must compete in 5 matches. Based on their performance in those matches, they will be ranked amongst the players from all over the world. As you continue playing the league games, your rank will increase or decrease depending upon the outcomes.

For players who are familiar with the game but don’t know much about this new league play, we have got some useful tips for you.

Teamplay:

Teamplay is extremely important in League games and what is the most important part in Teamplay? Communication, obviously. You have to rely on your teammates in hold games like Control, SND and Hardpoint. Stay intact with your teammates during the whole match. And if you don’t own a mic, we suggest that you buy one as soon as possible. Without mic, team communication is impossible and without team communication, winning in League Play is extremely difficult. Plus, you’ll put your team at a disadvantage if you don’t communicate well with them.

Build Squad:

League Play is all about team wins. The best way to climb up the ranks in this mode is to play the way with your friends. If you don’t have any in the game, we suggest that you make some random friends. Making a party before starting the League Play match is very important. A squad can play way better than randomly teamed up players.

 

Choosing the Best Weapon:

Play the league with your favorite and most lethal weapons. Don’t try to rank up guns in this mode as you won’t get this again but there is always time to rank up the guns in normal modes.
