Looking for the best COD: Mobile guns to use? You've come to the right place! Call of Duty's mobile offering contains a huge arsenal of weaponry that continues to expand at an impressive rate and with so many COD: Mobile guns to choose from, it's tricky to tell which ones stand out from the crowd.

2023's Season 4 update brings even more additions to the weapon arsenal alongside another dose of weapon balancing that could shake up the meta.

Before we take a closer look at the best COD: Mobile guns for Season 4, take a look at our other guides revealing how to unlock the Thumper and every Blackout NPC location and task to complete.

What are the best COD: Mobile guns?

  • Assault rifle: M13
  • SMG: CBR4
  • Sniper: DL Q33
  • LMG: Holger-26
  • Marksman rifle: SKS

LMGs and SMGs are currently performing better in comparison to ARs in the COD: Mobile multiplayer. As for battle royale, Season 4 acts as the perfect battleground to utilise assault rifles and snipers to gain the upper hand over the opposition.

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.

Best COD: Mobile LMG


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.

Best COD: Mobile SMG


Here's the best COD: Mobile CBR4 loadout:

  • Muzzle: MIP Light Flash Guard
  • Barrel: MIP Extended Light Barrel
  • Laser: OWC Laser Tactical
  • Stock: YKM Light Stock
  • Rear Grip: Rubberized Grip Tape

Retaining its spot as the best SMG in COD: Mobile Season 4 (and one of the best guns in COD: Mobile period) is the CBR4.

Elsewhere, you'll have heard this being called the P90. It's a familiar and often popular gun in other games, and that still rings true here. The CBR4 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 CBR4 is its consistency over range and sharp damage drop-off. The CBR4'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.

DL Q33

Here's the best COD: Mobile DL Q33 loadout:

  • Barrel: MIP Light
  • Perk: Sleight of Hand
  • Stock: YKM Combat Stock
  • Laser: OWC Tactical Laser
  • Ammunition: Extended Mag A

The DL Q33 heavily resembles the legendary Intervention sniper rifle and just like its predecessor, the DL Q33 packs a deadly punch on the battlefield.

Although there are several guns to choose from in the category, the DL Q33 stands out as the best sniper rifle in COD: Mobile Season 4 simply because of its stellar accuracy and high damage potential


It is quite a bold move to play with snipers in multiplayer. 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 multiplayer 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.

Currently, the best assault rifle to use in COD: Mobile Season 4 is the M13. 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.
