In Back 4 Blood, you’re tasked with achieving goals and getting to a safe house, while slaying hundreds of zombies that will try to block your path. Naturally, you’ll want to equip yourself with the best gear to make the trip. Here are the best weapons in Back 4 Blood.
The AK-47 is the best all-round weapon in Back 4 Blood. It gives you high damage and a decent rate of fire. Its only real drawback is its high recoil compared to other assault rifles. Equipping this weapon with a few attachments that pair with your activation cards will allow you to do a quick job of the undead hordes.
Back 4 Blood has a few melee weapons to offer, but the Machete stands out as the best all-rounder. While it does less damage than other weapons such as the Bat or Fire Ax, it has a quick attack that can hit multiple enemies at once. It also takes less stamina to swing than other melee weapons. You can even start your run with this weapon if you choose to take on the role of Evangelo. Related: Back 4 Blood: All Characters & Zombies
Handguns are usually never the most powerful weapon in a game. However, this is not true for the Desert Eagle in Back 4 Blood. This handgun uses sniper ammo and is almost as powerful as one. If you can learn to control the recoil of this hand cannon, you’ll be scary in the eyes of the Ridden.
There is no better weapon for cleaning buildings than the AA-12 shotgun. This fully automatic shotgun with moderate damage excels at slicing through hordes of Ridden at close range. While this shotgun isn’t great for killing enemies from afar, it’s best for taking out swarms and pumping out a tall boy full of lead.
On the surface, the Barret M95 is not that great. It is a bolt-action sniper and its rate of fire is very slow. But until you use the Barret against one of the bosses in the game, it’s impossible to appreciate it for what it is: a boss killing machine. Hitting your shots on weak bosses will drop their health faster than any other weapon in the game. There you go, the best weapons in Back 4 Blood! The next time you head to this post-apocalyptic world, be sure to be on the lookout for a few of these weapons. They will certainly help you fend off the endless hordes of Ridden.
