Abstract: Ellingsrud and Peskine in 1989 proved that there exists a bound on the degree of smooth nongeneral type surfaces in $ \mathbb{P}^4$. The latest proven bound is 52 by Decker and Schreyer in 2000.

In this paper we consider bounds on the degree of a quasismooth non-general type surface in weighted projective $ 4$-space. We show that such a bound in terms of the weights exists and compute an explicit bound in simple cases.
