Fans looking to score a Blackout victory may need to drop into the most dangerous areas to find the best loot – and that includes heading to the various Zombies areas of the map.

Call of Duty expert and YouTuber ‘Drift0r’ has been breaking down the game and its updates, letting fans know what guns, equipment and perks are the best to use in different game modes.  


In a recent video he published on December 1, Drift0r breaks down the best Zombies guns – the Ray Gun, MP40, Galil and Zweihander –  to use in the Blackout game mode – based on their damage, range and rarity. The YouTuber also takes a look at the Essex Model 07 and Bowie Knife weapons.

Drift0r begins by breaking down the most iconic of the Zombies weapons – the Ray Gun. He notes that it deals 145 damage with one hit to anywhere but the head. A headshot, however, dealing 200+ damage – enough to kill any enemy who has given themselves a health boost with a trauma kit.


However, like every weapon in Blackout, the damage is lowered to armoured enemies – but it will break armour in two to three hits. Drift0r adds that the ray gun is “surprisingly good to use, but only in extra close quarters combat” similar to how you would use a shotgun in a late game situation.

The Ray Gun is the most iconic weapon of all the Zombies weapons.

The YouTuber then moves on to the rarest of the Zombies weapons – the MP40. The SMG deals 45 damage per shot but that increases to 49 with a headshot, making it a high damage dealer overall in Blackout. Drift0r notes that it is the rarest of all the guns as it can only be acquired via the box – in which he has only done three times.

Compared to the MP40, the Galil only deals an average of 37 damage. This increases to 40 with a headshot, making it a very average weapon compared to the others in Blackout. Drift0r adds that you would be better off with an ICR than the Galil but the gun is a fun nostalgia trip for long-time Call of Duty fans.

Warzone player discovers perfect way to counter Airport tower campers

A Warzone player has found the perfect way to counter campers in the Verdansk Airport tower, and it might be the best way to bait those annoying players out and get across the runway.

If you’ve played Warzone even once, you’ll know exactly which tower we mean: the one north of Airport that has only one way up, from which players can easily camp, scout out enemies and lay fire upon those trying to rotate to zone.


Even with the inclusion of external ziplines to many tall buildings in Verdansk, the tower still doesn’t have one, meaning that once players are up there, it’s incredibly difficult to get them down.

Typically, you’ll struggle in a straight gunfight against these players — so what you need to do is bait them out, instead, and capitalize when they’re distracted.

Warzone airport tower helicopter
Tower campers are among some of the most annoying players in Warzone.

As showcased below by NadxCH, a helicopter could be your key to infiltrating the tower — though not how you might think.

While many people will have tried to attack head-on while in a helicopter, the plan instantly falls flat if the tower campers have a rocket launcher or explosives of some sort, that will see you and your team come crashing down instantly.

Instead, you need to assign a teammate to fly past in the helicopter after landing up top, and strike while the iron is hot. While the designated driver flies the heli in one direction, you’ll need to jump off the top and plan your parachute perfectly to land in the control room while the opponents have their back turned and are distracted.


Obviously, this will often be easier said than done. Jumping off the top of the tower and timing everything right to land in the control room is a skill you’ll have to practice over and over again to get right, so you’ll have to be confident you can pull it off first.

Secondly, you’ll have to rely on the enemy team being distracted by the helicopter. They likely will be, and will want to take it down while it’s so close, which is why it’s the perfect opportunity to strike.

Otherwise, you might find yourself trapped while trying to traverse the map — and there are few worse types of players to die to than those in Airport tower.
