While the best attachment in Black Ops 4 mostly depends on what weapon you’re using and on your playstyle, there are some that are a lot better than others. We’ve listed the very best attachments in Call of Duty Black Ops 4.

  • High Caliber (II) - This Attachment really adds a ton of damage if you can land headshots or shots to the upper body in general.
  • Choked Barrel - This can seriously improve a shotgun, and when paired with a good Operator Mod like Dragon’s Breath, is basically the only way to use a shotgun with the power of a primary weapon.
  • Long Barrel - This makes snipers seriously unstoppable, because there will be no range-based drop off.
