I love Blackout in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, but it’s clear the developers at Treyarch are having trouble working out a sweet spot for perhaps its most troublesome feature: armour.
Armour has been tweaked this way and that ever since Black Ops 4 came out back in October as Treyarch has tried to settle it down in a place that makes for a good experience.
For those who don’t know, armour is a pick-up that comes in three levels, the third being the most durable. It’s a powerful item for all the obvious reasons: it mitigates damage, thus increasing “time to kill”. In a firefight, armour can be the difference between life and death.
