I know some folks who simply do not care about their sidearm in Call of Duty, but I have had my butt saved more than a few times by whipping out my sidearm. When my main ammo is gone and managing to pop off a few good shots can get me a kill or just give me a second to run away and get my bearings. Having the right sidearm can be very important and that is what we are looking at today.
These are the current sidearms in Call of Duty Black Ops IIII and my thoughts on each one.
Mozu: The Mozu is the way to go if you ask me. Headshot damage is 68 which is much higher than the other sidearms and the body damage is 62 which again is the highest. Only 3 head or body shots are required for a kill, making it the fastest sidearm of the bunch.
Strife: I have a buddy who swears by the Strife, but that is because he is great at popping off headshots. With 50 headshot damage, it does only take three headshots to kill an opponent. The body damage though is 46 so you will have to probably take an extra couple of shots.
RK 7: The RK 7 is the weakest of the sidearms on my list today. The body damage is only 32 and the headshot damage is 35. This means that it takes 5 body and 5 headshots to kill an opponent. If you come against another player with even just a half decent weapon, you will be dead long before they are. This low damage count means that it can take nearly a full second to take someone down.
