A YouTuber has calculated just how much it would cost to buy every item in Call of Duty Black Ops 4, and the final figure will almost definitely surprise you.

Like most games nowadays, microtransactions are prevalent in the latest Call of Duty release, Black Ops 4, with players able to purchase CoD points in order to buy cosmetic items to make their character look unique.

While this business model is present in most other games, one YouTuber sought to find out exactly how much it would cost to buy every single item in BO4, given it cost around $60 to buy in the first place, or $100 if you bought the Black Ops pass too.

TREYARCHBlack Market items can be purchased using CoD points.

Popular YouTuber eColiEspresso
did the maths, collecting the price of every single item and bundle in Black Ops 4, to reveal how much a player would have to pay in order to add all of them to their collection.

They found that it would cost a staggering $1,324.28 in order to purchase every item that Treyarch have added to the game – and that’s not including any reserve case purchases, but only items available for direct purchase in the Black Market.

The figure is 22x the amount of the base game, leaving CoD fans on Reddit to vent their frustrations.

One fan suggested that action should be taken against the developer, stating their current business model was “very anti-consumer” while another labelled the grand total as “disgusting”.

Other players highlighted that games such as Fortnite had a microtransaction system that didn’t affect the game’s core mechanics, while Black Ops 4 has weapons locked behind supply drops meaning they are hard to obtain without spending money.

With Black Ops 4 already offering players an exclusive Captain Price blackout item for pre-ordering the next game in the franchise, Modern Warfare, it seems that microtransactions are here to stay in Call of Duty.

We can only hope that cosmetic items are cheaper to purchase when the game officially releases on October 25.

Black Ops Cold War is certainly no stranger to burst fire weapons, particularly those of the assault rifle kind. However, there is also one SMG that shares this firing pattern. Here are all the attachments you should be using to unleash the KSP 45’s full potential.

The KSP 45 may not be your go-to SMG in Black Ops Cold War, especially when the likes of the MP5 and Milano dominate the category. However, despite being a three-round burst weapon, the KSP 45 offers great damage and decent range. Only one burst is needed to drop an enemy in close-quarters engagements, while two are needed at mid-range. 

This deadly gun blends both AR and SMG playstyle together, making it a great choice for those that want to remain competitive across all distances. In order to help you get the most out of the KSP 45 in Treyarch’s latest title, we’ve created a loadout that will help you secure more frags in no time. 

Best KSP 45 loadout in Black Ops Cold War

This loadout balances the KSP 45’s range and close-quarter effectiveness.

Here’s how you need to kit out your KS5 45 SMG to dish out the most damage across all ranges. 

Attachments

  • Barrel: 10.5 Reinforced Heavy 
  • Body: SWAT 5MW Laser Sight
  • Underbarrel: Front Grip
  • Magazine: 42 RND
  • Stock: Tactical Stock

Secondary

  • 1911

Throwables

  • Stimshot
  • Semtex
  • Field Mic

Perks

  • Perk 1: Flak Jacket + Tactical Mask
  • Perk 2: Assassin + Scavenger 
  • Perk 3: Ninja + Ghost

Wildcard

  • Perk Greed

Whether you prefer to seek out close-quarter firefights or take down foes in mid-range engagements with deadly precision, then this KSP 45 loadout will enable you to do just that. The 10.5 Reinforced Heavy increases the SMG’s effectiveness at range and bolsters its bullet velocity. 

Combine this with the horizontal recoil control from the Front Grip and you have an extremely accurate SMG. While the KSP 45 will still struggle to outgun the game’s meta assault rifles, you’ll at least have a fighting chance. After all, being able to take down mid-range targets in just two bursts is hardly anything to scoff at. 

Meanwhile, the SWAT 5MW Laser Sight improves the gun’s hip-fire accuracy. Mobility and ADS speed remains a big part of Black Ops Cold War, especially when you’re playing on maps like Nuketwon ‘84. As a result, being able to accurately kill any targets without ever looking down your gun’s sights is great.

The 42 RND Mags ensure you have plenty of ammo when it comes to snagging those game-winning multi-kills. Lastly, the Tactical Stock increases aim walking movement speed, enabling you to keep on your toes and quickly sweep those corners.

The KSP 45 may not be as dominant as the MP5, but it still packs a punch.

This loadout uses Perk Greed, which allows players to take six perks. The combination of Flak Jacket and Tactical Mask will keep you safe from any explosives and noxious gas. These perks are important for most loadouts, but especially hyper-aggressive ones that prefer the run and gun approach to combat.

Assassin enables you to shut down any enemies that are currently on killstreaks, while Scavenger keeps your ammunition reserves healthy. Lastly, Ghost and Ninja keep you hidden from pesky enemy spy planes and silences your footsteps. 

In terms of equipment, we’ve chosen the standard Stimshot, Semtex, and Field Mic items. Having the healing from Stimshot will keep you fighting, while the Field Mic allows you to pick up on any enemy movements. 


So there you have it, an extremely deadly and versatile KSP 45 loadout. If you want to keep updated with all the latest Call of Duty news and updates, then follow us over on @DexertoIntel
