“How to Remove Attachments in Back 4 Blood” is a common search term following the launch of the game’s beta, leaving players to take to the Internet and find out the process to this unexplained mechanic.
Back 4 Blood’s beta is currently met with positivity, although one of the biggest complaints from players is the lack of proper tutorials for game mechanics, with the use of attachments being one of the biggest blemishes. While players are able to equip attachments such as scopes and barrels with ease, it’s the removal of said addons that are unexplained, leaving players stuck with awkward early-game setups for a majority of their playthroughs. Even with the tutorial videos posted on the official YouTube channel, this issue has gone unaddressed as of writing.
Fortunately, there’s a way to facilitate attachment removal, but it isn’t exactly player-friendly. Attachments in Back 4 Blood work similarly to games like Apex Legends, starting players off with basic weapons and having them find addons out in the field to buff their weapons. Unlike Apex Legends, however, attachment management isn’t as easy as it should be.

Here’s how to do it: when players equip an addon to their weapon, the only way for them to unequip it is to find a similar attachment in the wild and equip it over the weapon, making the previously-attached addon fall to the floor and available for anyone to pick up.
It’s no surprise that players are annoyed by the convoluted process, though many have taken to forums and sites to share ideas and tips on how attachment management could be better facilitated in the game’s full release.
Back 4 Blood is expected to release Oct. 12, 2021 on the Playstation 4 and 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S and X, and PC.
