During the reveal of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 battle royale mode Blackout, developers revealed that the size of its map will be way bigger than any other franchise map. How big is the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Blackout Map though? A popular Youtuber gets his pen and paper and starts putting numbers together.
In an interview with Finder.com, Senior Producer, Yale Miller, revealed that the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Blackout Map will be 1500 times bigger than the size of Nuketown, which is the smaller map in the Call of Duty franchise. Using that, along with some estimations on the map, Youtuber Drift0r managed to analyze the size of the map and generate a scale using the Black Ops 3 Nuketown map, and more specifically the weapon range.
Using the maximum and minimum distance to get a one-shot kill on Nuketown, Drift0r managed to generate a grid bringing him one step closer to find out what the size of the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Blackout Map is. He said: “I know that the Razorback will deal 30 damage up to 90 meters, less than that it will deal 29” and with that, he had a legit way to make the calculations.
The final verdict is that the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Blackout Map is a 4.5km2 minimum to 7.4km2 maximum. That makes it somewhere around the size of Fortnite, which is 5.5km2 but much smaller than PUBG’s 64km2.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Blackout will be playable as soon as the base game releases on October 12th on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. Even if we have no actual footage of Blackout so far, game designer Matt Scronce promised to make it better than PUBG and Fornite. After all, Treyarch has all the assets and FPS expertise to go on with that project.
