Seeing as OpTic Gaming’s Seth ‘Scump’ Abner is one of the best Call of Duty players of all time, it’s probably worth listening to his advice on what are the best weapons and classes to run in Black Ops 4.

As most players are probably aware at this point, a major update was recently released in Black Ops 4 that implemented a lot of balancing changes and tuning updates to the Multiplayer.

These changes considerably altered the way the game was being played at the time, as a lot of ‘meta’ weapons and attachments were nerfed while some underused guns were buffed.

With this in mind, Scump has released an in-depth guide on which weapons and classes are best to use in the wake of this massive update.

While he is an extremely skilled competitive player, Scump is equally dominant in public matches, so his guide certainly should help out players who are trying to get better.

The first class he details is the Saug 9mm submachine gun, which is widely considered to be the best SMG in the game. Scump has it outfitted with Stock I and II, Quickdraw, and Grip, using both the Primary Gunfighter I and II wildcards.


The rest of the class includes the Stim Shot gear and Scavenger and Dexterity perks.

The next class features the VAPR-XKG assault rifle, which contrary to the Saug, was not really considered a viable option prior to the recent update.

He has the weapon fitted with the Elo sight, as well as the Stock I, Stock II, and Long Barrel attachments. The rest of the class includes Stim Shot gear, Scavenger, Dexterity, and Ghost perks, and Primary Gunfighter I wildcard.

Another weapon that has suddenly become a lot more viable since the update is the GKS SMG, which Scump has equipped with the Quickdraw, Long Barrel I, and Long Barrel II attachments. 


This class also features the Strife pistol as the secondary, as well as Stim Shot gear, Scavenger, Dexterity, and Ghost Perks, and Primary Gunfighter I wildcard.

One thing worth noting is that Scump does show the Maddox RFB assault rifle class he was using prior to the update’s release. 

Although the update initially nerfed the Maddox to the point where it became borderline unusable, Treyarch ultimately reversed the recoil nerf, making the weapon somewhat viable again.

For those who may be interested, here is the Maddox class that Scump was running before the update.

These are only a few of the weapon classes that Scump goes into, as his full video includes several more classes that players will definitely want to check out.
