LMGs and SMGs are currently performing better in comparison to ARs in the classic COD: Mobile multiplayer modes. As for battle royale, Season 9 has brought in several mechanical changes which encourage players to make aggressive maneuvers with SMGs. On the other hand, the new Blackout map encourages players to pursue ranged combat with Snipers and ARs instead. There's a lot of variety at the moment.

The key to winning every match is picking the proper tools for the job. Rushing into a fight you don't need to isn't going to help matters, and charging in with the incorrect weapon will only make things worse. Even the best guns in COD: Mobile aren't miracle makers, but some will pull ahead in far more than one scenario. Right now, the best gun in COD: Mobile is a beloved SMG, but we'll walk you through the best loadouts for the best gun in each category just in case.

COD: Mobile Best Gun - LMG

Holger-26

Here's the best COD: Mobile Holger-26 loadout:

  • Barrel: MIP Light Barrel (Short)
  • Stock: No Stock
  • Laser: OWC Laser – Tactical
  • Ammunition: Holger-26K Double-Stack Carbine Mag
  • Rear Grip: Granulated Grip Tape

The Holger-26 is a hybrid weapon that sits between an LMG and an Assault Rifle. It categorizes itself as an LMG thanks to its default 100-round high-capacity magazine. However, the magazine is the 5.56 NATO cartridge, the least powerful ammunition type within the LMG category. You'll rattle off the rounds, but they won't have the stopping power of other, slower LMG bullets.

The small size of the Holger-26 allows for a high fire rate, a manageable recoil, and some of the best mobility compared to other weapons in this class. It is most efficient in multiplayer and stands only second to the AK-47 in the battle royale mode.

Again, its bullets aren't as strong as some other options in its weapon class, but the Holger-26 loadout above will offset its downsides, helping it edge out against the competition to stand as one of the best guns in COD: Mobile right now.

It's a familiar and often popular gun in other games, and that still rings true here. The QQ9 is a fast-firing SMG with decent damage. making it a perfect choice for close-ranged combat. That's a limit we can break with the right loadout.

With the proper adjustments, this weapon can become a lethal threat at both close and mid-range, boasting high accuracy and easily-controllable recoil. The only trade-off for the QQ9 is its consistency over range and sharp damage drop-off. The QQ9's strength lies in its high fire rate. So long as you remember that it's a close-range weapon at heart, you shouldn't fall victim to its more understandable disadvantages.

The Locus has retained its position as one of the best guns in COD: Mobile since Season 9. Chances are, if you've secured a precision kill from long range or been the victim of one in the last few months, this gun has been the reason why.

Though there are several guns to choose from in the category, the Locus stands out as the best sniper rifle in COD: Mobile Season 9 simply because of its stellar accuracy and high damage potential

It is quite a bold move to play with snipers in multiplayer mode. But if you know how to quick scope, half the battle is won as soon as you pull the weapon out. The faced-paced action of MP mode can be difficult for snipers at first. Just make sure to practice and warm up before going into a ranked match and you should be fine with this infamous killing machine.

  • Muzzle: RTC Light Muzzle Break
  • Barrel: OWC Marksman
  • Rear Grip: Granulated Grip Tape
  • Laser: OWC Laser Tactical
  • Underbarrel: Tactical Foregrip B

Currently, the best assault rifle to use in COD: Mobile Season 9 Battle Royale mode is AK117. This weapon is a fast-firing, high-recoil assault rifle with moderate damage. It can be difficult to control the recoil at first, but with a little practice, you should be able to easily memorize the spray pattern.

The AK117 is, somehow, the best gun to use in close-range combat right now. Be careful, though: its damage drop-off makes it a poor choice for long-range engagements. Even though other weapons in its class may have better accuracy and higher damage, the AK117 leads with an impeccable fire rate, hip-fire accuracy, and consistent spray control. You can even use different variations for all the attachments to the same effect.

Using the Monolithic Suppressor is discretionary. It's mostly used for control across mid and long-range fights. You can use some other muzzle attachments, like the OWC Light Compensator, to increase movement speed and reduce the weapon's ADS time, but it's a forgiving machine all things considered.

One thing to note: you should switch between the Ranger Foregrip, Strike Foregrip, and Tactical Foregrip B. You can also choose to increase the magazine size by selecting ammunition attachments.

The KRM-262 was widely considered to be the best shotgun in COD: Mobile despite several concurrent changes. After the recent patch update, the weapon has returned to its grand status in multiplayer mode, clawing back some of the nerfs it was handed in more recent updates.

Players need to have a firm grasp of all the movement mechanics to master any shotgun in COD: Mobile. The KRM-262 eliminates the possibility of mistakes with its one-shot accuracy. It is most effective at close-range, as are most spread-based shotguns, but aiming anywhere near the head should be enough to secure the kill.

Of course, like most weapons in the game, the best shotgun in COD: Mobile needs the proper attachments for maximum efficiency. With the right attachments and adaptive gameplay, players can become lethal with this shotgun in ranked matches. Just check the
