Welcome to Season 4 Reloaded! Since the update, plenty of weapons have received buffs to make them more viable in competitive play. One such weapon is the QBZ-83, which before the update was arguably one of the worst weapons in the game. Since its buff, it’s become a solid medium to long range weapon with solid mobility and a good rate of fire.
Due to its almost non-existent recoil on the horizontal, the QBZ-83 has now become an excellent versatile standalone weapon that can also function as a sniper support option. With the expected rise in popularity to hit the Warzone, we thought it would be fitting to go over this renewed beast’s top ten blueprints. These rankings are based purely off of aesthetics.
The Racecar blueprint starts this list off strong with a design that can only remind one of scenes in Talladega nights. With this weapon, 2.5 miles is a breeze of a shot (in the right hands), and there’s very little to be bored with as this blueprint sports red, orange and yellow shades with advertisements displayed over them like a literal racecar.
With a name like Racecar, what else is there to expect? The black carbon ‘undercarriage’ acts as the bottom of the vehicle, which boasts a 50 round drum mag as a wheel and infantry compensator to boot.
This blueprint has flavor, pizzaz, and is the perfect option to start this list off. You can get this epic-grade blueprint in the Full Stop bundle, released in season 3.
9. Jungle Stalker
For those who read these blueprints rankings often, you’ll know that we value Infinity Ward’s ability to make blueprints that stay close to a narrative, and Jungle Stalker is a prime example of that skill.
Green hues blend this weapon into any vegetation setting, while a duster stock and elastic wrap act as sloppy additions to a weapon that’s clearly been through thick and thin. It’s got personality, camo, and is something you’d find straight out of Predator, which is a common theme in some blueprints that we can definitely get behind.
You can get Jungle Stalker in season 3’s Dense Foliage bundle.
8. Artifact Alloy
For the hitman among us who like to have weapons they can call their own, personalized pieces, there is the Artifact Alloy. Staying true to its name, it looks like a QBZ-83 that takes its bullpup frame and intricately designs various pieces of artwork on it. The wooden speed mag, grip, and leather combat stock act as nice brown additions to its tin-colored body.
On the 15.5” barrel, you can see the tin go to silver, and then finish on a chromish blue which acts as the signing off on a gorgeous weapon. The details might be subtle, but this weapon sports beauty you rarely find in a blueprint.
You can acquire this epic piece in the Alloy Storm bundle, released in season 3.
7. Shark Attack
Surprisingly, this blueprint makes the number 7 spot as the most ridiculous blueprint on the list. Shark attack takes the lovely QBZ and turns into a fish. A shark, to be exact. Teeth are designed on the grip, with a shark fin protruding from the Raider stock.
The weapon is tinted ocean blue on top, with red and black colors emerging from below. In accurate hands, this weapon is sure to cause thalassophobia in even the sternest of enemies. Its just a shame the weapon doesn’t play the Jaws Theme when sneaking up on enemies (or is it?)
You could only acquire the legendary-grade Shark Attack blueprint in tier 47 of BOCW’s season 4 battlepass.
6. Almost Famous
It’s that time of the list again, and we’ve reached our first outrageously, unapologetically flamboyant anime blueprint.
The golden tint on the base of the weapon is accented (or marred, depending on your tastes) by a purple hue splattered everywhere else, which sports Japanese writing and anime characters pasted over it.
The muzzle suppressor and 3x Axial Arms optics act as a way to beef up the weapon, making it a large, flamboyant, and attention seeking piece. Like we always say on these kinds of blueprints, those who don’t like it are probably going to really hate it, but those who like it will find it to be the best blueprint in the game.
You can pick it up in BOCW’s season 1 Anime Assassin bundle.
5. Street Legend
Paintball fans everywhere rejoice, Street Legend will have you popping your friends from across the map in no time! This blueprint takes the QBZ and applies a factory smooth blue and white paint job across its body.
With an ultralight muzzle and marathon stock, this blueprint keeps things simple and clean with perfectly cut corners and a look that’s flashy but professional, for those who like to mix business with fun. In all honesty, this thing could be a water gun, it would slip right by us on the street.
You can pick up Street Legend in the BOCW’s season 3 bundle “Hardwood Hero”.
4. Golden Ox
Golden Ox is certainly the most eye-catching blueprint on this list so far, and should only be used by players who like running and gunning their way into every enemy’s attention which, thanks to the QBZ’s recent buffs, shouldn’t be as difficult a task as it used to be!
The Golden Ox sports a Chinese New Year-esque theme of golden and red hues across the entirety of the gun which, thanks to its drum magazine and Holoscout optic, is rather large compared to its stock look. Like we said, it’s for the running and gunning and full-on ‘look at me’ player. Use with caution.
You can pick up Golden Ox in the Year of the Ox bundle and take golden tracer rounds as a bonus item for your troubles.
3. Natural Wonder
Personality goes a long way on this list, and Natural Wonder is one of the most unique and personally attractive blueprints in the game. With vines wrapping around the base of the gun, which is painted both dirt brown and vegetable green, this weapon looks like it was grown, not manufactured.
The weapon also sports purple hues over runic etches which glow ever so slightly. It actually looks like some alien weapon that was pulled from its resting place in the ground. And you can get it by purchasing the Runic Demise bundle, with dismemberment effects and energy tracer rounds to boot.
2. Pure Evil
For the antagonist in all of us, Pure Evil satisfies the plot. Red flames strike up from the stock magazine to match the pure fire coming from your muzzle, which is also decorated with hues of fiery red. The middle and back of the weapon have intricate paintings over them, with lettering and pictures of what almost looks like skulls and webs in a silvery tone.
Pure Evil boasts a SWAT laser and QBC pad for that extra tone of corporate ‘evilness’ to help players become the antagonist of everyone else in the game. You can pick up this legendary-grade blueprint through the Soul Reaper bundle, released in BOCW’s season 2.
1. Food Chain
It’s no secret that humans are on the top of the food chain (according to humans). But which human is above the rest on that subcategory of ‘chain’? The answer is “the one who wields this blueprint.”
Food Chain is a blueprint that takes the QBZ and makes sure everyone else in the game can see it from a mile away. A strange tiling and striped pattern crawls everywhere on this gun, with neon blue, purple, red, and black coloring stretching across the weapon.
Its SOCOM Eliminator muzzle, 50 RND drum mag, and CQB pad add extra girth this already extravagant canvass of attention. If you’re going to run this blueprint, you really should be at the top of the food chain, because all predators and prey are going to see you coming whether you’re in the open or not.
If this looks like your kind of blueprint, you can get it in the Workout Plan bundle, released in Season 4.
Given its sudden boost in popularity, you can bet that this weapon will be seen across your matches soon enough! If you want to use it and stand out while doing so, refer to this list to see what the best blueprints you can find are. Skill might be required, but personalization is key.
As always, GLHF.
