At long last, Call of Duty developers Treyarch have finally added Combat Records to Black Ops 4, allowing players to check a large variety of their in-game stats.

As months passed after the release of Black Ops 4, the absence of Combat Records in Multiplayer grew more and more notable, as players begged Treyarch to add a feature in the game that would allow them to monitor their own stats.

Finally, in the April 4 game update, Combat Records was added in Black Ops 4, and below you can find out everything there is to know about the new feature and how it works.

How to check your Combat Record in Black Ops 4

For the first time in the history of Call of Duty, Combat Records for Black Ops 4 will be available on the Call of Duty Companion App and not in the actual game itself.

Treyarch have said that they did not want to add the complex menus of the Combat Record to the game, so they added a way for players to check it on their mobile devices.

Now, in order to check your stats, you simply have to download the Call of Duty Companion App via the Apple Store or Google Store, log in with your CoD account credentials, and your full Combat Record will be there for you to look at.

Weapon and attachment stats in Black Ops 4 Combat Record

Arguably the most important stats in the Combat Record is how well your perform with each individual weapon and weapon category. 

On that front, the new mobile app Combat Record does not disappoint, showing the following stats for Bare Hands, Tactical Rifles, Assault Rifles, Shotguns, Sniper Rifles, Specialist, Light Machine Guns, Launchers, Pistols, Submachine Guns, and Melee weapons:

  • EKIA
  • EKIA/D
  • Kills
  • K/D
  • Headshots
  • Deaths (while using)
  • Accuracy
  • Shots landed
  • Shots fired
  • Killed by
  • Damage

The Combat Record goes so in-depth that all of the statistics listed above are also available for all weapon attachments, so you can monitor how well you’re performing with certain weapon loadouts.

Specialist weapon stats in Black Ops 4 Combat Record

Similar to the regular weapon stats, the Specialist weapon section of the Combat Record includes similar statistics but for the main abilities of Specialists.

This section is not limited to just weapons, as some of the stats are tailored to fit the main abilities of Specialists that may not be lethal, such as Zero’s Ice Pick.

  • EKIA
  • Kills
  • Times used
  • Damage
  • Killed by
  • EKIA supported by
You can find stats for Specialist abilities and weapons in the Combat Record, including the non-lethal ones.

Equipment and Scorestreak stats in Black Ops 4 Combat Record

The Black Ops 4 Combat Record on the Companion App also includes a dedicated section for Equipment, Special Issue Equipment, and Scorestreaks.

For Equipment, both regular and Special Issue, stats stats are available for Mesh Mines, Reactor Cores, 9-Bangs, Seekers, Cluster Grenades, Razor Wire, Sensor Darts, Tac-Deploys, Hawks, Assault Packs, Frags, Molotovs, Trophy Systems, and more.

As for Scorestreaks, players can find specific data tailored for the RC-XD, Sentry, Hellstorm, Attack Chopper, Mantis, Lightning Strike, Dart, Care Package, Counter-UAV, Strike Team, UAV, Sniper’s Nest, and Gunship.

The Combat Record also include stats for almost every piece of Equipment, Special Issue Equipment, and Scorestreaks.

Map stats in Black Ops 4 Combat Record

Last but not least, maps. The new Combat Record allows players to check their statistics on certain maps, including the ones that also have weapon variants (eg: Seaside Sunset, Firing Range Night, etc…)

  • Wins
  • Losses
  • W/L
  • Specifics stats by game mode

Of course, these stats were already sort of available in the game, as players could see their stats for a specific map-mode combo whenever loading into a public match.

Warzone players outraged as stats change protects hackers & SBMM abuse

Call of Duty: Warzone players have aired their concerns with the recent changes making profile stats private following the companion app drama, with some players pointing out that the change helps cheaters hide from punishment. 

Like many other multiplayer games, Warzone has had its issues with both hackers and skill-based matchmaking ruining the experience for some players.

While they’ve both always been an annoyance, players recently discovered that some were using an app from the CoDTracker site, and another called ‘SBMMWarzone’, that helped them pick and choose their lobbies. These apps were, initially, meant to be used to root out cheaters, but it backfired and SBMM abuse became the primary use. 

Changes were made to the app to help quell the abuse, and Activision even made every Warzone account private so that the data couldn’t reach similar apps. However, that has caused annoyance as well.

SBMM in Black Ops Cold War & Warzone has been an issue for a while.

CoD YouTuber Drift0r pointed out that, given how annoying the new opt-in process is to share Warzone stats – and that it isn’t mandatory, either – players will simply choose to stay hidden. 

“Some of them (pro players and record holders) might not want to opt-in, or like me, might not be able too or it might take a while, which means that if anybody is cheating at a high level, either to get YouTube content or to stream tournaments, they can just opt out of all this and keep the cheating private,” he said.

The YouTuber noted that, while Activision might have the data on their end and could root out cheaters, it makes it harder for the community to assist them in that fight. 

Other players backed up Drift0r’s concerns about the cheating and SBMM abuse, with some offering up ideas for future changes. 

“They’ll literally do everything except just tone down SBMM, which would mitigate all these other issues,” said one player. “There’s an elephant in the room and its name is cheating. Activision just reopened the highway for cheating. Shameful,” added another.

Others, though, took a different slant, saying: “This officially ruined the game for me. I liked having public stats. It gave me something to work towards in improving… now what’s the point since no one can see them and I have nothing to compare mine to.”

As Drift0r notes, it could become a case where the opt-in process is made mandatory in the future, as it seems to a situation that is majorly in flux – given that there have been two changes in quick succession.

It could also be the case that Activision decides to not do anything else, and this is their final move. Though, given the outrage from the community, that seems unlikely.
