Black Ops 4: Best weapons and attachments to use in Blackout

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4’s Blackout battle royale mode is full of different weapons and attachments, so it can sometimes be hard to know which are the best to use in certain situations. 

In terms of ballistic guns, there is a total of 27 different options to choose from, including six assault rifles, six submachine guns, three tactical rifles, three light machine guns, four sniper rifles, three pistols, and two shotguns.

In order to help players narrow down this list of choices to the best of the best, Call of Duty YouTuber and expert ‘TheXclusiveAce‘ has published a video in which he breaks down which are the best weapon-attachment combinations in the game.

He breaks down the weapon pool into three tiers – high, medium, and low – and he characterizes items from each tier as having priority in his inventory over items over lower tiers. 

He describes high tier items as ones players should always strive to have, medium tier items as ones that get the job done but fall short against stronger opposition, and lower tier items as being way too situational and limited in their use.

PCGamesNThere are a lot of weapons to choose from in Blackout.

In the top tier, he includes the ABR 223 tactical rifle, the KN-57, Maddox, SWAT RFT, ICR-7 assault rifles, Paladin and Koshka sniper rifles, and the Spitfire and Saug 9mm SMGs, although he does note that he likes to use SMGs as secondary weapons in compliment to the others. 

His mid-tier choices are the Rampart 17 and VAPR-XKG assault rifles, Outlaw and SDM sniper rifles, MX-9, Cordite, and GKS SMG secondaries, the MOG-12 shotgun, and the Zweihander, VKM 750, and Hades light machine guns.

According to Ace, the ABR 223 is arguably the best weapon to use in Blackout.

He then moves on to the lowest tier of weapons, or ones that he recommends players to generally avoid and not pick them up unless it’s the beginning of the game and they need a weapon.

This list includes the Swordfish and Auger tactical rifles, Essex Zombies assault rifle, Titan LMG, SG-12 shotgun, and all of the pistols.

Ace does not rate the Titan LMG highly because of its high recoil and overall ineffectiveness.

He then goes into the attachments, which he categorizes into the high and medium tiers based on their effectiveness and usability.

His top tier of attachments includes: extended barrel, foregrip, stock, extended mag, reflex, elo, 2x sight, and sniper scope. The remaining attachments then make up the middle tier: suppressor, grip, laser sight, and fast/hybrid mag.

He doesn’t have a lower tier of attachments since equipping any to a weapon only improves the gun and does not have any drawback or negative effect.

PC players have been receiving a lot of annoying dev 6068 error screens while playing Warzone and Modern Warfare since the release of Season 6. Here’s what you’ll need to know in order to fix the problem.

Crashes and error screens can be incredibly frustrating for players to deal with when attempting to play their favorite games and Warzone has had its fair share of them since its release in March.

One error screen has been appearing for players a lot lately, is a game freeze and crash followed by a “dev 6068 error” during attempts to play online.

PC players have experienced a lot of dev 6068 errors in Season 6

This dev 6068 error is often linked to issues with the computer’s software, such as having a corrupt DirectX installed, rather than a hardware issue. It can be caused by a number of things but having outdated Windows, System Drivers and non-optimal settings for your device, have all been found as causes as well.

As there are multiple ways for this error to occur, there are also a few solutions that have been found to help players to fix this annoying in-game bug. Here’s some of the things that you can do to fix the dev 6068 error.

How to fix dev 6068 error on Warzone

  1. Run Warzone and Modern Warfare as an administrator on your PC.
  2. In task manager, set a high priority on the Call of Duty app to prevent freezes.
  3. Download any updates for your computer’s System Drivers and make sure Windows is up to date.
  4. Open launcher and press ‘Scan and Repair’ in the Call of Duty options menu.
  5. Set the Game Window to Borderless in the game’s video settings
  6. Deactivate any game overlays or performance monitoring apps such as Discord, Game Bar, etc.
  7. Disable settings such as Ray Tracing and turn shaders down on Warzone.
  8. Reinstall shaders in the graphics settings.
  9. If all else fails, you could try reinstalling the game to prevent the dev 6068 error.

It is quite unlikely that you will need to try all of these to fix the error, but it could also be caused by a third-party application that conflicts with the Warzone application, meaning you might have to clean boot your system to solve the problem.

Activision previously addressed these game crashes when they first appeared after Season 6, revealing that they were “actively investigating” the issues with Warzone and despite resolving it for some players, it still seems to be a major issue for others.

That’s all the information we have right now on this error code; as always, we’ll continue to bring you the latest as more is announced, so make sure to follow us on @DexertoINTEL for all the latest updates.
