Black Ops 4 Multiplayer Tips & Tricks
Try Out Each Specialist
CoD Black Ops 4 puts more of an emphasis on specialists than any game before it, as each character will play differently. Of course, they can equip the same guns, perks, etc, but they have unique special equipment and skills. Because of this Black Ops 4 starts to feel a bit like a hero shooter, although not on the level of something like Overwatch.
In multiplayer it’s important for you to understand how your specialist works, whether it’s using Ruin’s grapple gun to zip around the battlefield at high speed or Recon’s sensor dart to help your team spot enemies. Black Ops 4 will have 10 different specialists in the game at launch, but during matches, the specialists are first come first serve for your team. Two players can’t play as the same specialist.
Because of this, it’s important that you learn how to play at least a few different specialists, and know what role they should play on a team. When you first start up Black Ops 4’s multiplayer, it’s a good idea to just try each one out for a few rounds. See which specialist fits your play style best, and figure out how to effectively use their skills. Again, it’s important to not lock yourself into playing as only one specialist, however, as you might not always get that chance. From there you can customize your loadouts how you see fit.
