The Peacekeeper is a weapon appearing as a submachine gun in Call of Duty: Black Ops II and as an assault rifle in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4.

Call of Duty: Black Ops II[edit | edit source]

"Fully automatic personal defense weapon. Rifle-class accuracy and range with SMG speed and handling."
— Description

The Peacekeeper is featured in the Revolution downloadable content pack for Call of Duty: Black Ops II.

Multiplayer[edit | edit source]

The Peacekeeper has the lightweight design of a submachine gun, but with better range and accuracy at the cost of close quarters firepower, essentially being a hybrid between a submachine gun and an assault rifle. It has one of the lowest damage outputs, and is tied with the PDW-57 and MSMC for the lowest rate of fire out of all submachine guns; as a result suffering in close quarters combat, even being outgunned by certain assault rifles and light machine guns; however, it outperforms all other submachine guns in terms of range, with its four to six-hit-kill range matching, and in some cases exceeding, those of assault rifles. In exchange for this impressive range, its close range time to kill is relatively long and it has moderate-low recoil. In addition, the Peacekeeper requires an assault rifle's default 0.25 seconds to aim down the sights as opposed to the submachine gun's default 0.2 seconds.

In order to unlock Diamond Camouflage for the Peacekeeper, all other submachine guns as well as the Peacekeeper must have Gold Camouflage unlocked. However, unlocking camouflages for the Peacekeeper is not required to obtain Diamond Camouflage on other submachine guns.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4[edit | edit source]

"Full-auto assault rifle. Superior handling with high rate of fire."
— Description

The Peacekeeper returns in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 as an assault rifle, taking on the appearance of a factory-new Peacekeeper MK2. It was added with the Days of Summer continuation of the Operation Spectre Rising update.

Specifications[edit | edit source]

  • Ammo (Blackout): 5.56mm
  • Operator Mod: None

Multiplayer[edit | edit source]

The Peacekeeper is a versatile weapon in many aspects. Taking the form of an assault rifle, the Peacekeeper has the mobility of most submachine guns in the game while offering the damage output and low recoil similar to the ICR-7 while having a fire rate similar to the Maddox RFB. However, the Peacekeeper struggles at longer ranges because of its fire rate, making it more ideal for medium engagements, although the Grip can be used to help reduce recoil if the player attempts to use the Peacekeeper to pick off an enemy from a distance. The Peacekeeper's arsenal of attachments also benefits more for mobility as opposed for damage, as High Caliber and FMJ are absent unlike most of the other assault rifles in its class. However, the Peacekeeper has the option for both the standard and II versions of the Quickdraw and Stock, allowing players to treat the weapon as a submachine gun for closer engagements. The Peacekeeper also accepts Rapid Fire, allowing the Peacekeeper to benefit at closer ranges against other submachine guns while the Hybrid Mags can allow the Peacekeeper to reload faster.

Zombies[edit | edit source]

The Peacekeeper is available in the Mystery Box for 950 points on all maps. When upgraded via the Pack-a-Punch Machine, it becomes the Writ of Shamash gaining increased damage, double the base magazine size and 512 reserve ammo.

Blackout[edit | edit source]

The Peacekeeper was added to Blackout, and can be acquired from a Blackjack Stash in limited time modes after the player acquires it from Reserves. It uses 5.56mm ammunition.

    • The Laser Sight will replace it when that attchment is equipped.
