Our guide to the best attachments to choose in Blackout.
Our guide to all of Blackout attachments, covers Assault Rifles, Submachine Guns, Sniper Rifles, DMRs, Shotguns, Pistols and Light Machine Guns.
Looting a strong weapon in Blackout is great and all, but you’ll want to slap on a few attachments to bring out its true potential. This rings true for practically all the weapons you’ll pick up, as even attaching a scope and a stock can elevate your gun to new heights.
If you’re a newcomer though, the wealth of attachments in-game can be pretty overwhelming. It’s not immediately obvious what half of them do, making it tricky to make a decision when you’ve got two similar attachments staring you in the face.
In this article, we’re going to run you through all of the attachments in the game and provide our take on which ones you should be sticking on your guns. Once you’ve had a read of this article, we hope you’ll come away more confident in your decision-making process when it comes to slotting on attachments.

What attachments should I be equipping?
When it comes to optics, it’s largely what you’re most comfortable with, but move on over to the other attachments and there are some which you’ll want to equip no matter what. Below we’ll break down some of our favourites.
- Holographic – The humble Reflex keeps things simple and provides a clear sight for short to mid-range fights.
- Scopes – You can’t really go wrong on the scopes front. If you’ve got an Assault Rifle, DMR or Sniper Rifle equipped then they’ll all provide great clarity for mid to long range engagements.
- Fast Mags – Having significantly faster reload speeds can make all the difference in intense fights.
- Stabiliser – Reduced weapon sway and increased lung capacity makes sniping a little more comfortable.
- Stock – You can’t go wrong with increased movement speeds all-round as it’ll allow you to traverse the map, get out of trouble and close the distance faster. Quicker ADS is also a nice bonus too!
This concludes the first edition of our attachments guide, but we’ll continue tweaking and updating this page as time goes by – stay tuned!
