Choosing the right Specialist in Black Ops 4 is one of the many keys to success and knowing just how long each one takes to charge their abilities can help figure out which one is best.

Each Specialist comes with a piece of equipment and a special ability that can help turn the tide of battle.

Not every Specialist is created equal, though, as each one takes a different amount of time to charge, with some being quick and other taking quite some time. 

Call of Duty expert ‘TheXclusiveAce’ has returned once more with a rundown of just how long each Specialist takes to charge their abilities and equipment.

TheXclusiveAce notes that each game mode comes with its own multipliers when it comes to charging each Specialist ability. Through his testing, Team Deathmatch seemed to be the baseline and that was the mode he based his figures on.

These numbers also assume that the player is not getting any score, as TheXclusiveAce wanted to simply see what the raw charge times were for each Specialist. In Team Deathmatch, however, you will cut about 30 seconds off that raw time for every 100 points earned.

When it came to abilities, by far the fastest charge time was Torque at just 4:40, while Recon and Seraph were tied for the longest charge time at a flat 12 minutes.

For Equipment, TheExclusiveAce notes that the times are not affected by score, meaning these will simply charge at this rate regardless of how you perform.

Ruin was at the top of the list this time around, with his Grapple Gun taking just 15 seconds to charge. Meanwhile, Firebreak’s Reactor Core takes the longest to charge, coming in at one minute and 50 seconds.

TheXclusiveAce ends his video by looking at the Equipment Charge gear, finding that it will allow you to earn your Abilities and Equipment 50% faster. He still likes using Stim Shot in most classes, but concludes that this could be good to use for certain situations.
