Is the Rampart the best assault rifle in Black Ops 4?

YouTuber Drift0r has released a new video offering a full breakdown of the popular assault rifle.

He starts the video by saying “this was a fun video for me to make because the Rampart brings joy to my heart.”

That is a solid indicator of his thoughts on the gun and he goes in-depth on what makes the gun so strong.

The Rampart does 46 damage at close range and 37 at distance, but the real strength of the gun comes from using high caliber 2 bullets, he explains. 

These bullets make it so the gun kills in just three shots, one of the few guns to reach that mark.

Of course, the gun does have its drawbacks. The highest damage comes along with the lowest rate of fire.

This means that players who are highly accurate will get quick kills but players with a constant spread will find their opponents catching up to them.

The other balancing mechanic is the recoil. A powerful gun comes with a powerful recoil and can make the Rampart hard to get the hang of.

Drift0r’s final declaration: “The Rampart is a downright filthy weapon with high caliber 2 equipped.”

New Warzone update removes helicopters & adds Juggourdnaut Royale

Infinity Ward has pushed out a new playlist update for both Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone and while it adds some modes to the game like Juggourdnaut Royale, it also removes helicopters from the night-version of its battle royale.

New playlist updates for Modern Warfare and Warzone, generally speaking, only change out the gamemodes in the game, but today’s is a bit special. According to some notes released by Infinity Ward, the new hotfix removes two major aspects of the title.

The first is the removal of helicopters from the night version of Verdansk, which is pretty major to say the least. Currently, it’s unclear exactly why Infinity Ward made this change, as they didn’t specify in their tweet. It could be due to a bug, low visibility, or something else entirely.

Pumpkin heads have also been removed from Modern Warfare and Warzone.

In addition, the developer also removed the pumpkin heads due to a bug occurring, although exactly what that bug is was also not made clear. It’s also undetermined if this removal also affects the pumpkin heads on the juggernaut suit, which automatically has the head attached when you put it on.

Beyond these removals however, the update also adds a new mode, Juggourdnaut Royale. Despite the name being a bit different, this is the exact same mode as Juggernaut Royale, which was added to the game during Season 4. Players have to fight over juggernaut suits located around the map in order to survive.

On top of that, Infinity Ward also added BR Solo Survivor and Plunder: Candy Collector to the rotation, both of which appear to be renamed versions of the standard modes.

It’ll be interesting to see how long it takes the developers to re-add the helicopter and pumpkin heads to the game. While the former has obviously been in the game from the start, the latter is a nice seasonal treat that will only be around for a couple more weeks.
