Weapon Attachments are a big part of the Call of Duty experience.  They do things like silence your weapon, reduce the recoil, or make them more accurate.  Gun attachments have made their way to the Blackout Mode and you’re gonna wanna learn how to quickly equip them when you find something you want.

Like just about every other thing in Blackout, Gun Attachments can be switched in a couple of different ways.  If you’re picking up a new items off the ground and you can equip the attachment on your gun (not all attachments work with every gun) you will see that you have two prompts.  If you can equip the attachment you can do so with the Square Button (PlayStation 4) or X Button (Xbox One).  If you just want to save the attachment for later you can pick it up and put it in your inventory with the Triangle Button (PlayStation 4) or Y Button (Xbox One).

At any time you can also access your main inventory menu by pressing the Options Button (PlayStation 4) or Start Button (Xbox One).  In this inventory screen you’ll be able to use the in-game cursor to hover over items and if they fit on your weapon you will see a blue square appear in the slot.  If they don’t, you will see a red X in the attachment slot.

If you have attachments in your inventory that fit on your weapon, you can always switch to them from the quick menu as well.  These attachments are listed on the far right hand side of the quick inventory screen which is accessed by pressing up on the d-pad.  If you need to make room for other attachments or items, you can always drop the items as well.
