What are the top five items to use Black Ops 4 unlock tokens on?

Permanent unlock tokens are some of the rarest items in Black Ops 4 and deciding how to use them is one of the biggest dilemmas you’ll face in the game.

Players will get a single unlock token with each Prestige level, unless you hit level 34 in the multiplayer beta earlier this year, in which case you’ll have an unlock token from the start.

When it comes to choosing how to use the tokens, Call of Duty expert ‘TheXclusiveAce’ has provided fans with a breakdown on the top five items to focus on.

When Ace was nailing down what weapons and scorestreaks were worth it, he mainly focused on items that wouldn’t be unlocked until past the halfway point of a Prestige in terms of experience points, which comes out to around level 41.

Ace also notes that he didn’t include any perks or equipment pieces in his list since they generally unlock early on or simply aren’t worth it when compared to other items that are available.

5. The Gunship (unlocked at Level 54)

Being the highest scorestreak in the game and requiring 1600 points to activate, this is only for those who feel confident they can achieve it on a regular basis.

For those that can do so, it’s hands-down the best streak in the game and seeing as it unlocks just one level from a Prestige, it’s worth using an unlock token on.

4. VKM 750 (unlocked at Level 46)

For all the LMG players out there, this slow fire rate, high-damage LMG is one of the best guns in the game.

That being said, it does have the very low mobility to offset its best-in-class damage, meaning it’s a weapon that only the most dedicated LMG players will want to use.

3. Drone Squad (unlocked at Level 51)

Another high-level scorestreak, Drone Squad is special in the sense that it doesn’t require any sort of positioning or targeting that’s seen with the RC-XD or Hellstorm. You simply activate it and the squad will get to work.

While Drone Squad doesn’t need as many points as The Gunship to unlock, the 1000 points required could still be outside the range of the average player, meaning that this is another one you want to make sure you’re confident in before spending a token on.

2. Saug 9mm (unlocked at Level 52)

Widely seen as one of the best SMGs in the game, the Saug 9mm is one of the last guns unlocked, making it a prime target for an unlock token.

The gun might not have a ton of range, but it more than makes up for it with great handling and a ridiculously high fire rate. They can even be dual-wielded when the Operator Mod is unlocked.

1. Maddox RFB (unlocked at Level 49)

The last assault rifle to be unlocked, the Maddox is arguably the strongest rifle in the game, with best-in-class fire rate and a beefy magazine.

The gun has some heavy recoil that must be controlled, but the gun can compete with SMGs at close-range which makes it another strong choice for an unlock token.

Another massive Warzone event is heating up as popular content creator and battle royale champion Jordan ‘HusKerrs’ Thomas is hosting his very own tournament with $300,000 on the line.

Following close behind Vikkstar’s original Warzone competition, HusKerrs is next in line for his own huge Call of Duty event. HusKerrs Howl aims to crown the best partners in the world as this unique event focuses on Duos action.

After making history as the first player to pass six figures in Warzone winnings, it’s only fitting that HusKerrs’ event comes with the biggest prize pool yet. A whopping $300,000 is up for grabs over the course of two weeks.

From the teams that will be dropping in to when each round of action is taking place, we’ve got you covered. Here’s everything you need to know about the HusKerrs Howl Warzone event.

What is the HusKerrs Howl Warzone event?

The HusKerrs Howl event is one of the biggest Warzone tournaments to date. Not just in terms of prizing, but in how long it’s set to last and how many teams will be getting involved.

Duos will be dropping into Verdansk across multiple weeks in order to qualify for the Finals. Additionally, there’s also a special one-off Zombie Trios section to get things going before the Duos competition really begins.

A brand new Twitch channel has been created just for this event with HusKerrs set to host. We’ve embedded this below for your convenience. Expect almost every competitor to be sharing their own perspective throughout the tournament as well.

HusKerrs Howl will be starting with a Zombie Royale showdown.

First up is the special Zombie Day event on Friday, October 30 at 1 PM PT / 4 PM ET. This is a unique Trios competition in the Zombie Royale playlists. Only one team can take out the prize for what is essentially a warm-up run before the real show starts up.

The following day on October 31, Duos will be dropping in for the first round of qualifying action. This will be followed up by the second and third rounds on November 5 and November 6 respectively.

Last but not least, the best Duos from the qualifiers will advance through to the Finals. This takes place on November 7 to determine the overall winner of the HusKerrs Howl event.

This particular competition is for Duos only.

This particular Warzone competition is for Duos only and will feature a double-elimination bracket. 16 teams will be dropping in for the first day of action. They will go head to head until the very end with only the Top 3 qualifying for the Finals.

For the final two days of the qualifiers, only eight duos will be playing. From here, the Top 2 make it into the Finals. This makes seven Duos so HusKerrs will be taking the eighth and final spot.

As teams are going head to head, the Duo with the highest point total in each matchup will advance. No different from most Warzone events, teams will be awarded one point per elimination. There’s currently no telling how many points will be awarded for higher placements in each match.

Stay tuned over the coming days for full recaps and results as the action gets underway. Big names such as Symfuhny, Aydan, and TeePee are all expected for the event. So it’s sure to be an intense tournament.
