Hey there
Thanks for reading

I’ve picked up BO4, first cod since ghosts (ps3)

I’d consider myself a slightly above average player (generally 1.5-2 kd) in previous iterations.

I’m currently at 1.2kd, (rough start), but out of 25 games I’m generally 1.5~ average. I hit 3/4kd sometimes, the odd bad streak around 1kd

I run vapr
-Red dot
-silencer
-long barrel

Scavenger
Cold blooded
Dead silence/ghost

Sometimes I’ll swap out my sight and long barrel for gung-ho

I generally don’t camp and rush a lot, but if I find a good location I’ll hang around and post up for a couple kills

Try and stay around the outside of the map and work in and out again, always flanking when I can

I like the vapr as I feel it resembles the commando which was my go to weapon of the past.
I need a silencer to feel like I’m any bit competent

Any tips/tricks from any better players?

Thank you again

Do everything you do in game with an intent/purpose

Ask yourself "why am I doing this" if you cant immediately answer that question then you probably need to rethink.

Learn where enemies will sit by watching where your team goes. Then work on how you would counter it.

Thank you for the tips

Would you/anyone recommend if I’m doing anything wrong with my current setup?

I’m not exactly sure if it’s better to drop perks for attachments or vice versa? Or if a mix of both is suitable

I have 7 custom classes all set with the vapr and different attachment/perk combos.

I hadn’t mentioned I usually run battery and nomad if she’s not available.

Generally only play core tdm

I tend to run engineer instead of scavenger myself, no ghost but rock a launcher

Other than that and your weapon (I tend to go with the Auger) it's about what I use

The suppressor can be iffy at times but not horrible.

I felt like scavenger was necessary to not run out of ammo
I realize my accuracry is quite poor (20%), do you use crash or rely on crash for ammo refill, or do u grab someone’s gun when u run out?

I could lose ghost, and generally it’s the first to go when needing something else.

I’ll have to give the auger and engineer a try.

Thank you again, I’m just looking to improve a little and wanted to ensure I was at least headed in the right direction

Running scavenger or engineer depends on which specialist you run, or your teammates. For myself, I run engineer on most of my classes because 95% of the time I run Crash, so I regularly give myself ammo. But if you don't use him, or you don't think your team will, scavenger is a great choice, but not seeing enemy placed equipment gets annoying, tho I still manage to die from mesh mines more times than I'd like to admit while running engineer
Doesn't matter. Their numbers mean nothing. By opposing me... They are marching to their own slaughter!

I swear half the time they arent even showing

But they also seemed to have toned down the red effect IMO, seems a lot less noticeable then I remember at launch

If you can get away with it, Flak Jacket and Tac Mask in Tier 1, Cold Blooded in Tier 2, and Dead Silence in Tier 3 are the best ways to counter almost all of the cheesy stuff in this game.

That limits your attachments, and you also have to play a bit more carefully without Gung Ho.

The SWAT RFT is one of the best guns in this case, as it's quite solid with only Quickdraw and Stock. Unfortunately, you probably did not unlock that weapon during Operation Zero and now you will have to get lucky in a reserve drop.

Personally I bite off more than I can chew and will often die to a multiple enemy stomping.

But when I do run out of ammo I grab whatever is on the ground.

I use to run crash but now I go zero or outrider.

I actually got lucky and got the Swat from a reserve case. Just got it again earlier but it auto re rolled into a sticker.

I’ll have to give it a bit more of a chance as I dismissed it quickly as I was doing fairly well with the vapr

I assume dead silence is virtually a must have perk?
I’d generally double up ghost but wondering now if I should drop ghost and scavenger and try engineer, gung-ho/cold blooded, dead silence and run with crash if my teammates haven’t.

I also die a lot by a third man ruining my gunfight.

Is there somewhere to check how much time is remaining on the operation ? I’m at tier 92/100 but really have no clue when this ends.
