How to get Makarov in COD Mobile

The Makarov doesn't feature in the Season 4 Battle Pass which means you need to complete a seasonal challenge in order to obtain it. The challenge you need to complete is known as Sidearm Scuffle where you can also unlock a Silver Crate Coupon and a blueprint for the .50 GS.

To unlock the pistol, complete all of the tasks by eliminating players with pistols. Once complete, you can use the Makarov in a loadout and customise it using the Gunsmith.

COD Mobile Makarov weapon stats

Without any attachments equipped, the Makarov is still a solid option to consider when searching for a powerful secondary weapon. Here's a closer look at the base stats:

  • Damage: 30
  • Accuracy: 93
  • Range: 40
  • Fire Rate: 42
  • Mobility: 115

Is the Makarov good in COD Mobile?

Judging by early feedback, the Makarov is proving popular in COD Mobile thanks to the ability to equip Akimbo and a huge magazine allowing you to eliminate multiple enemies in quick succession. We'll have to wait and see if players call for a nerf because of its overpowered nature.
