The last COD I bought was COD 5: World at War, the others didn't excite me enough. I have heard good things about the Blackout mode and it got my interest piqued. So my question is fellow sinners, how is it?

Too much like fortnite for me, compared to a real shooter. I'm not a fan of it, PUBG was way better imo. I wouldn't get it just for blackout certainly, but it's good they added it in for free.

I agree with Skepta, if you're not interested in multiplayer or zombies as well I personally don't think Blackout is worth the $60 USD price-tag alone. It's definitely fun and you can tell it's a AAA battle royale, but if I paid just for that I wouldn't be nearly as satisfied.

I've tried a few games to try and get into it, but I'm really struggling to get into it. If you'd had to pay for it, then it would suck really bad. I suppose with them putting it in for free though, it makes it not too bad.

Great battle royale mode but I wouldn't just buy the game for that. Unless you can get yourself into playing zombies I wouldn't even bother spending the money.

Call of Duty isn't anything like it was on World At War so based off of that I'd say it might not be something you'd like. It's way more fast paced now. I myself have been enjoying Blackout though. It's like a finer tuned PUBG but faster paced and plays like Call of Duty. It's nothing really like Fortnite. Maybe try watching more videos on it now since it's been out for a few weeks. If you're still not sure try renting it to make up your mind.

I don't really like BR games that much though this one is pretty good imo. With that said at least %50 of the weapons aren't worth picking up and I seem to spend 10 minutes picking up toilet paper instead of doing something useful.

I enjoy the multiplayer more than the blackout. The zombies is also really on point this year. Like others above me said, I think PUBG is the better battle royale although sadly it's dying out lately

BO4 Multiplayer in comparison to the older MP's like CoD3: The Big Red One or CoD4: Modern Warfare or CoD5: World at War is so bad. The game is subtly being steered towards competitive play and competitive players. Some of the maps have the "3 way traffic system" and some don't. Little or no thought was put into the spawns and Assault Rifles are the most powerful weapons at almost all ranges - so weapon balancing wasn't done properly either.

Blackout is fun for the odd game, but it lacks longevity. And it's super repetitve.. I would go as far as to say Fortnite as cartoonie a sit is, is superior. H1Z1 and PUBG are also much better Battle Royale games.

Zombies at the moment has some serious game breaking issues which don't seem to be getting a fix anytime soon. So that's hit and miss at the moment. And compared to the old zombies this one is more like Tranzit in BO2 on some of the maps.

I'd avoid this CoD like the plague if you haven't played one since WaW.

Not to sure how you can say pubg and h1z1 was better, h1z1 was possibly the worst BR game ever out there. As for pubg i wont even go there

Blackout is good all around, you never have trouble finding guns or good loot. Sometimes the games can feel long and repetitive but thats mainly based on how you play and where you land. Like all BR games it is what you make it. Every BR game is like that you have good and bad games. But it rips fortnite, pubg and h1z1

So it feels like it wants to be a Pubg with Fortnite playstyle and it isnt for everyone. Map is fairly large but gameplay moves kind of fast in solos.

Ok, I'm now liking Blackout way more then MP. If they add ground war I'll be interested but I'm bored with MP now. Also BF5 will be out soon so I'm looking forward to that. With headsets and a good team Blackout is pretty awesome imo.

My friends have it as well and I am sorry I bought it. I dont care for it at all. BR is a joke for cod.
I get on and see my friends on black ops and of course I just start up pubg and within minutes all of my friends are now playing pubg. Call of duty lost all appeal to me after waw.
They have been stuck in the mode where they think everyone wants to play like a modded lobby. Drop all uav, drop all radar, drop care packages, and drop anything to do with flying-invisible-extra armor-wall climbing. And damnit bring the bouncing betty back. We dont need the future tech in war. They have gotten so far away from military fighting.
If I could go back in time I would slap myself when I picked up a copy of black ops 4.
