What You Get When You Level Up In Black Ops 4

Rise up the ranks. Unlock new gear.

Level 21

It’s finally Beta Weekend and that means the race is on to unlock every last piece of gear available! Fortunately, there’s a ton of items to unlock. And for those dyed-in-the-wool Beta badasses out there who reach Max Rank and unlock everything, you’ll earn yourself a Permanent Unlock Token, good for unlocking any Create-A-Class item when the full game launches October 12.

What’s the Max Rank? You’ll have to stay tuned to find out. This page will be updated as the Level Cap increases to detail what’s available as you soar up the ranks.

Levels 1-4 – Six Default Classes

Get a taste of what’s to come with six built-in Default Classes, each with their own combat characteristics. Use the Breach class to run ‘n gun; Mercenary to get your feet wet; Support to take down Scorestreaks; Sentinel for lane control; Marksman, for the snipers among us; and Hunter, where Secondary Weapons and the Combat Axe come into play.

Scorestreaks available: UAV. Hellstorm. Attack Chopper.

Level 5 – Three Custom Class Slots & Much More
You’ve dabbled in the Default Classes, now make your own. Here’s what you get to pick from:

  • Primary Weapons: ICR-7. MX-9. Titan.
  • Secondary Weapons: Strife. Hellion Salvo.
  • Gear: Equipment Charge. Stim Shot. COMSEC Device
  • Perk 1: Engineer. Cold Blooded.
  • Perk 2: Scavenger. Lightweight.
  • Perk 3: Team Link. Ghost.
  • Wildcard: Primary Gunfighter 1. Secondary Gunfighter 1. Primary Operator Mod. Secondary Operator Mod.

Level 6-8 – Three More Custom Classes, Gear & Weapons
By Level 8, you’ll have a sampling of a weapon from each class.

  • Primary Weapons: Auger DMR. Paladin HB50
  • Secondary Weapons: MOG 12 Shotgu
  • Gear: Armor. Acoustic Senso

Level 10 – An Everyman Assault Rifle & An Excuse To Get Greedy

The ICR-7 not dealing the damage you want? You’re in luck. The reliable KN-57 offers extra power, while trading in a dash of accuracy. You also get the Perk 1 Greed Wildcard. Don’t wantto decide between Engineer and Cold Blooded? No problem. Equip them both and you don’t have to.

Scorestreaks: RC-XD
Level 13 – An SMG With A Side of Perk Greed
The GKS gives you all the fire rate of an SMG but with range that’ll let you compete at distances typically suited for Assault Rifles. Plus, double up your Perk 2 slot with the Perk 2 Greed Wildcard. Maybe equip the recently unlocked Trophy System in your Equipment slot. Keep those explosions off you.

Level 16 – Sniper Variety, More Greed & A Hipfire Boost

The Koshka Sniper Rifle handles remarkably well for such a large, bolt-action weapon. Packing two levels of Quickdraw & Laser Sight attachments makes this one a favorite for a marksman who likes to stay on the move. Consider pairing it with the new Perk 2 Gung-Ho, or double up on Perk 3 by using your Perk 3 Greed Wildcard.

Scorestreak: Care Package

Level 22 – Two Kinds of Rifles, Weapon Wildcards & An Axe
Your custom loadout slots should begin to take shape now. You’ve got enough weapon variety to find what you like and more than a few Perks to play with. Here’s what you unlocked since Level 16:

  • Primary Weapon: ABR 223. Rampart 17.
  • Equipment: Combat Axe
  • Perk 1: Flak Jacket
  • Perk 3: Tracker
  • Wildcards: Overkill (take two Primary Weapons). Underkill (take two Secondary Weapons)
  • Scorestreaks: Strike Team.

Level 25 – Two Weapons & The First Cap!
Congratulations! You’re at the Day 1 Level Cap. On the way, you’ve got the fastest-firing SMG around and a beast of a revolver Pistol.

  • Primary Weapon: Spitfire
  • Secondary Weapon: Mozu
  • Perk 3: Dexterity
  • Scorestreak: Sentry Gun

Level 31 – An Assault Rifle, an SMG and Mantis Walk into a Bar…

From here, the rewards keep getting better. The Vapr-XKG packs superior mobility and reliable range, and the Cordite’s 60-round magazine requires fewer reloads between owns. Here’s what else you’ll have by now:

  • Equipment: Frag Grenade
  • Perk 3: Dead Silence
  • Wildcards: Primary Gunfighter 2. Perk 1 Gluttony. Perk 2 Gluttony.
  • Scorestreaks: Lightning Strike. Mantis.

Level 34 – Semi-Auto Shotty, A Long-Range Burst & Another Level Cap

You’re capped again! Great work. Along the way, you’ve got your paws on your first semi-auto Shotgun for quicker follow-up blasts. Plus, you’ve got access to the deadly accurate, 4-round burst firing Swordfish. Here’s a roundup of your other latest unlocks:

  • Equipment: Molotov
  • Wildcard: Perk 3 Gluttony
  • Scorestreak: CUAV
