To find out which gun is the best in Call of Duty Black Ops 4 lets first discuss a few weapon classes that can be dismissed. The shotguns and sniper rifles can be fun to use but are too specialized to consider any of them to be the best gun in Call of Duty Black Ops 4.
The best gun in Call of Duty Black Ops 4 must then either be an assault rifle or a submachine gun. Most of the time you will encounter enemies at medium and close range and both weapon classes have guns that are strong or good at either range. Submachine guns are more suited to close range engagements and flanking enemies to take them by surprise.
The main weakness of submachine guns is that in competitive matches you will often face enemies behind cover that have entrenched themselves. You can take them on with submachine guns but you often have to spend a lot of time flanking with the risk of being spotted and taken out having wasted the time it took to flank.
With assault rifles you can simply shoot the enemies behind cover and push forward. Having established assault rifles as the source of the best gun in Call of Duty Black Ops 4 it is easy to pick the best gun. Of the assault rifles the Vapr-XKG with its minimal recoil and good damage stands out as the best. Therefore, the Vapr-XKG is the best gun in Call of Duty Black Ops 4.
There are 5 submachine guns in Call of Duty Black Ops 4 to consider to find out which one is the best. The MX9 is a strong early unlock that is well suited to flanking enemies and taking them by surprise. The GKS is a lower fire rate, higher damage submachine gun that is competitive with assault rifles at medium range and can be used to push an objective head on.
The Spitfire is the highest fire rate submachine gun with controllable recoil. It is very strong at close range and can be used at medium range to a degree. The Cordite submachine gun has the largest ammo supply and can be used to go at it alone behind enemy lines as a result of its versatility.
The main weaknesses of the Saug 9mm are the low damage at medium range that mean you have little chance against assault rifles and the low ammo supply. The GKS is good at competing against assault rifles but doesn’t fit the submachine guns role of close range superiority due to its low fire rate.
The Cordite is a close second due to its versatility which lets you use it to attack an objective or flank enemies without having to worry about running out of ammo or being outclassed by assault rifles. However, the Spitfire with its high fire rate and quick time to death, stands out as a very powerful gun. With it enemies have little chance at close range. As an added bonus the wildfire operator mod is a lot of fun and makes you near unbeatable at close range, although it does make the Spitfire difficult to control at medium range. Therefore, the Spitfire is the best submachine gun in Call of Duty Black Ops 4.

There are 5 assault rifles in Call of Duty Black Ops 4 to consider to find out which one is the best. With its low recoil the ICR-7 is a strong early unlock that can be used to hold down a position. The Rampart 17 is the highest damage assault rifle and is strong at medium range, especially when you are behind some cover.
The Vapr-XKG is a late unlock with extremely low recoil and the possibility of attaching a suppressor. The Maddox RFB is the last assault rifle you unlock and has a high fire rate and a good sized ammo supply.
The Rampart 17 is good at medium range, but its slow fire rate means that it has to be played in a very defensive way. The ICR-7 similarly is also good at holding down a position, but it is not easy to attack an enemy position.
The KN-57 is a strong weapon since it can be used to defend a position and also go on the attack and capture an objective. It is a close second to the Vapr-XKG that, with its low recoil and great attachments options, is a great tool in most firefights. With the level 2 stock enemies will struggle to hit you and with the suppressor you can concentrate on one enemy at a time without alerting nearby enemies. Therefore, the Vapr-XKG is the best assault rifle in Call of Duty Black Ops 4.
