COD Mobile Season 1 2023 perks and equipment
Thanks to a recent test server build, players have discovered a new perk and piece of equipment expected to arrive in Season One.
The Unit Support Perk enables players to earn a slice of all Operator Skill earned by their teammates. Here's a closer look at the in-game description:
“Players will receive 20% of Operator Skill charging gained from every teammate’s kill; meanwhile, charging gained by self will be a 60% reduction. Player will receive 4% of Scorestreak charging gained from teammates; this bonus will be increased to 10% while capturing the Hardpoint.”
As for the equipment, it's great news if you're after a temporary boost of health in the heat of battle. The Stim Shot from Black Ops 4 and more recent releases is perfect for escaping some tricky situations during a match.
As with all leaks, take them with a pinch of salt as there's always a chance they're in the test build ready for a future update. We'll update the guide with the latest intel as soon as we hear it.
