About Ed Thorn

Ed joined Metabomb in May 2017 and puts together many guides across the site.

Our Call of Duty Blackout System Requirements page outlines the minimum and recommended specs, so you know for certain how the game will perform on your system.

On this page we're keeping things simple. Just below we've outlined the minimum and recommended system requirements for Call of Duty Blackout on PC. Another question that's commonly asked with any game around is, "Will my system run this game?". Well, we'll try our best to answer this question too.

Thankfully, Call of Duty Blackout's home to a great deal of graphics options. You can toy around with such a wide variety of things, the likelihood is that you've actually got nothing to worry about. You'll probably have to do some tweaking here and there if your rig is ageing a little, but otherwise the game should cater nicely to those rocking budget systems.

It's worth bearing in mind that these system requirements may be subject to change later down the line, especially with the number of patches the game will receive over the course of its lifetime. Having said this, we doubt there will be any major changes. If you find that your PC's in line with the specs, then it's highly unlikely you'll run into any problems later down the line.

So, without further ado, let’s get stuck into the minimum and recommend system requirements:

COD Blackout: System Requirements (PC)

Here are the official minimum and recommended specs, along with our thoughts on how well they’ll run the game.

Minimum

  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit or later
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-2500K or AMD equivalent
  • RAM: 8GB
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 2 GB / GTX 1050 2GB or AMD Radeon HD 7850 HDD: 25GB HD space
  • DirectX: Version 11.0 compatible video card or equivalent
  • Network: Broadband Internet connection
  • Sound Card: DirectX Compatible

Recommended

  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-4770K or AMD equivalent
  • RAM: 12GB
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 970 / GTX 1060 6GB or AMD Radeon R9 390 / AMD RX 580
  • HDD: 25GB HD space
  • DirectX: Version 11.0 compatible video card or equivalent
  • Network: Broadband Internet connection
  • Sound Card: DirectX Compatible

Judging from both the minimum and recommended specs, most budget machines should be fine running the game. Even the recommended CPU is at least a few years old now, and the graphics cards are by no means top of the range either.

Anyone with a recent mid-range or higher PC will be fine running the game at some of the top settings, but those who've only just met these requirements will have to turn a few settings down.

Call of Duty's got a great graphics options menu though, so figuring out the right mixture of settings shouldn't pose too much of an obstacle when it comes to achieving a nice balance between buttery smooth FPS and decent eye-candy.

If you're after the best competitive settings for optimal FPS, make sure you check out our COD Blackout Best FPS Settings guide!

How do I find out my system specs?

Below we’ve outlined how to find out what’s running in your rig:

PC

  • Go to your Windows search bar and type in ‘dxdiag’.
  • This will bring up a screen which shows all the good stuff.
  • Things to take note of: Operating System (32 or 64-bit), Processor (CPU) and Memory (RAM).
  • To find out what graphics card you’ve got, click the tab entitled ‘Display 1’ at the top left.
  • If you’ve got a dedicated GPU installed it’ll list the manufacturer (AMD or Nvidia), followed by the chip number (GeForce GTX or AMD RX).
  • You can check your display memory and VRAM here too.
  • That’s all the information you’ll need!
