Playing Call of Duty: Black Ops 4's new battle royale mode Blackout is both familiar and strange for anyone into the genre. Treyarch is also promising that Alcatraz will require players to explore new styles of battle royale play. In Blackout, weapons are found in various locations across the map: pistols, submachine guns, assault rifles, shotguns, tactical and sniper rifles, as well as the rare rocket launcher are available.
For now, here are all of our most popular guides for getting stuck into the meta of Blackout's gameplay. Here's what you need know about each area in the Blackout map in Black Ops 4. Even the sillier items find their way into Blackout, like the Ray Gun, Monkey Bomb, Acid Bomb, and RC Car (though it doesn't explode).
The original Blackout map is sprawling with lots of open spaces. You can consume Perks, drop Items for teammates, equip Attachments, and more. Squint just right, and you'll notice the majority of named areas piecing together the map in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4's Blackout mode are recreations of some of the most popular multiplayer and Zombies maps from Treyarch's CoD games.
With these tips, players will be up to speed with veterans in no time, but there's no replacement for getting stuck in and finding an individual style of play. First let me reiterate, I really do wish Black Ops 4 had a singleplayer campaign. In Blackout, like other battle royale games, you ideally want to always be inside the white circle.
It's the reason you should buy Black Ops 4. I already wrote at length about Blackout during last month's beta so I'm not going to spend too much time on blackout dansk it here. After choosing a playlist for the original Blackout map and waiting in the pre-game lobby, you and up to 99 other players will drop from a helicopter to start the match.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 launched late last week and with it came their first attempt at a battle royale mode. If you've played a COD Zombies mode, you may be familiar with this. There's only one type of "rare" loot in Blackout, and it's golden weapons like the rifle seen above.
The only reason for dropping into this spot is to have an extremely safe spot to farm some basic loot and then head into the other areas of the map in the mid game when the herd has slightly thinned out. While following the same format of any Battle Royale game, Blackout comes with a multiple additions of features like Mystery Boxes and Perks to be used in during the match.
