How to win more gunfights in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4

With the latest edition of legendary first person shooter Call of Duty released just a few weeks ago, everyone is still trying to figure out the best way to win their gunfights on Black Ops 4.

Thankfully, Call of Duty expert ‘TheXclusiveAce’ has uploaded a video that will help players win more gunfights while playing aggressively in the game, with the YouTuber stating that the Gung Ho perk and the Quickdraw attachment are key to winning your gunfights, and not finding yourself watching the killcam.

When players are sprinting and then press the fire button on their controller, there is a slight delay of around 300 milliseconds on Assault Rifles, 300 ms on Tactical Rifles, 250 ms on Submachine Guns and 325 ms on LMGs between the player finishing sprinting and firing their weapon. 

With the game’s overall time to kill sitting between 300 ms and 400 ms, this means that if you’re spotted by an enemy when sprinting, they will likely kill you, or at least heavily damage you before you can even fire a bullet.

However, by using the Gung Ho perk, which reduces players sprint-out times, players can fire their weapon between 25% and 60% faster after sprinting, depending on the weapon they are using. 

Unfortunately, every gun reacts to Gung Ho differently, so there is no set value between weapon classes.

Gung Ho is deemed to be so powerful that the perk has actually been banned from competitive play in the first version of the CWL ruleset, but is ideal for stacking up kills in public matches. 

TheXclusiveAce also suggests using the Quickdraw attachment on your weapons if you are hoping to fire the first shot against your opponent, as Gung Ho only allows players to fire quicker and doesn’t affect the time it takes to aim down sights.

In Black Ops 4, Quickdraw allows players to aim 20% quicker across the board, with Quickdraw II cutting ADS times in half. 

Combining these will allow players to quickly aim and fire their weapon regardless of whether they are sprinting or not, hopefully helping to win those all important gunfights!

Best Fennec loadouts for Warzone and Modern Warfare

The Fennec has now been out for a few months, but you’ll still need to equip the right attachments if you truly wish to master this lightening fast SMG. Here, we break down two of the strongest Fennec loadouts you can use.

The Vector, now known as the Fennec, has been a popular SMG ever since it first graced our screens back in Modern Warfare 2. Packed with a buttery smooth recoil pattern, excellent hip-fire, lightweight, and insanely fast rate of fire –  the Fennec is an absolute beast of a gun. In fact, this deadly machine gun is so lethal that it can tear through multiple enemies in just a blink of an eye. 

This zippy SMG hasn’t taken the crown away from the MP5, but the Fennec is still a popular choice. For many, this weapon is still a go-to, particularly in close-quarters where hyper-aggressive play is rewarded. In order to help you get the most out of the Fennec, we’ve put together two loadouts that you can use to dominate the competition in both Modern Warfare and Warzone. 

Best Fennec loadout for Warzone

Infinity Ward/DexertoBoost the Fennec’s damage range with this deadly loadout.
  • ZLR18” Deadfall 
  • Merc Foregrip
  • Stippled Grip Tape
  • Sleight of Hand
  • 40 Round Drum Mags

While Warzone’s large scale map may favor long to medium range engagements, you’ll still want to equip a weapon that can give you the edge in those close-quarter firefights. This loadout increases the Fennec’s hip fire, while also giving it a little extra range for when you need that added distance. 

First up is the ZLR18” Deadfall. This attachment not only drastically increases your effective damage range, it also ups your recoil control and bullet velocity, helping with the precision it needs when going for those all-important body shots and headshots. While this attachment increases your ADS speed, we think this loss is worth it, especially when you consider how woeful the Fennec’s mid-range damage is. 

The next two attachments are the Merc Foregrip and Stippled Grip Tape, along with the Sleight of Hand perk. Not only will these additions keep the Fennec stable while aiming and hip firing, they will also increase the ADS & sprint to fire speed, improving your reload speed and giving you even greater control when you need to react quickly.

Taking down fully armored players in Warzone can often prove frustrating, but the 40 Round Drum Mags will give you more than enough bullets to shred through many an armored enemy. This attachment is a must for those that want to secure those game-winning squad wipes.

Best Fennec loadout for Modern Warfare multiplayer

Infinity Ward/DexertoThis loadout absolutely obliterates players in close-quarter firefights.
  • ZLR 18″ Deadfall
  • Tac Laser
  • No Stock
  • Merc Foregrip
  • 40 Round Drum Mags

This build is all about melting your opponents in close-quarters combat. The Tac Laser drastically lowers the Fennec’s ADS speed and increases overall stability, while also allowing you to maintain a steady walk while aiming. 

Being able to quickly take care of enemy threats without needing to ADS is a godsend, particularly on smaller maps like Shipment and Rust, where you’ll constantly find yourself running into enemy players. 

Lastly, the Merc Foregrip will also increase your recoil control and hip-fire accuracy, allowing you to quickly fire off the Fennec’s blisteringly fast rounds with deadly precision. Foregoing the stock for this build will give you a slight boost in movement speed for quicker reaction to get away from players, while The ZLR 18” Deadfall and 40 Round Drum Mags should always be a top priority for any Fennec players looking to increase their kill potential, so always try to build your loadout around these core attachments.
