Once you’ve unlocked Create a Class in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, you may be wondering how to use it. In a nutshell, Create a Class allows you to construct custom loadouts comprised of your favorite weapons. A “loadout” in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is comprised of your primary weapon, secondary weapon, perks, wildcards, special issue equipment, and gear.

Note that Create a Class is different from the customizable Specialists available in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. Options for primary weapons in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 include the following:

  • Assault Rifles
  • Submachine Guns
  • Tactical Rifles
  • Light Machine Guns
  • Sniper Rifles

Options for secondary weapons in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 include the following:

  • Pistols
  • Shotguns
  • Launchers
  • Melee

In Create a Class, you can craft your loadout to your liking. First, select a primary weapon from the options available. If you’ve unlocked skins and/or attachments for this weapon, you can equip them here. Next, select a secondary weapon from the options available and equip a skin and/or attachment for it if you have one available.

To unlock skins for a weapon, you’ll need to complete designated challenges tied to that weapon as listed in the customization menu of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. Meanwhile, the slot system in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is similar to previous installments in the series where everything you add to your loadout takes up one of 10 available slots.

By using Create a Class, you’ll be able to quickly select your favorite loadout before entering a multiplayer match. Additionally, Create a Class is a great way to track the weapons and unlocks you earn as you progress through the game.
