Call of Duty’s new Blackout Battle Royale Mode is going to set 80 players loose on an island with the last person/team standing being the winner. That doesn’t mean that everyone has to look the same though. You can change your character model and what they look like as well as their gender.
There are a few different options available to Blackout players. To see them, you’re going to want to head into the character menu. From there you can select from Blackout character models, popular zombies mode characters, as well as Specialists from the Black Ops 4 multiplayer mode.
In the Blackout section, players can either select the default character. From there, if you press the Triangle button (PlayStation) or Y Button (Xbox), you can further personalize this character from a couple of different generic male and female avatars. As you can see, there are also “Icons” in this mode, but it’s currently unclear how to unlock Mason, Menendez, Reznov, or Woods.
Unlocking these characters will likely be tied to some sort of performance goal, whether that be just playing the game, wins, kills, or other.
As far as we’ve seen so far, character models do not impact anything in terms of gameplay or give you unique weapons as everything needs to be picked and found in-game.
Head here for a full list of these different characters in Blackout and how to unlock them.
