COD Mobile Gunsmith: Everything you need to know

Its time to customize your weapon

Season 9 of Call of Duty Mobile is almost around the corner. This season is bringing in some huge changes as we can see everywhere. Amongst all this, the most discussed feature is the gunsmith. The Gunsmith is a feature that was there in Call of Duty: Black Ops III and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. Now that this feature makes its entry into the mobile version of the game, it will simply change the dynamics of COD Mobile. Today we will explain what is COD Mobile Gunsmith and how to use it to excel in your gameplay.


What is Gunsmith in COD Mobile?

COD Mobile was recently teasing about the addition of a new customization feature that will be released in the upcoming update. The official handle on Twitter posted about this saying “Customization is the future”. Apparently the feature was later revealed to be Gunsmith. The concept seems to be a ripoff from Call of Duty’s other title named “Modern Warfare”. It allows the player to customize, view, and build out their weapons incredibly precise, as well as select multiple attachments and optics. Recently the official trailer of this new feature was tweeted on the official twitter handle of Call of Duty Mobile.

Stock

This attachment allows you to run faster while scoped on your sides. If you try to stiff without the Stock, it will be very slow as compared to using the Stock-AR attachment. It helps you to move faster while scoped on your sides. It also makes you a much harder target to hit.

Laser

The laser sight is very useful in assault rifles as well as short machine guns. It basically tightens your aim when you are spraying. This is very helpful if you like playing aggressive and love more action. Laser Sight helps you to give a steady aim and more chances of elimination. However, if you like playing defensively, this is obviously not very useful. It helps in running and gunning.

TypeProsCons

Underbarrel

The Foregrip attachment or the Underbarrel actually makes your gun more stable. This attachment will be helpful for every gun that you play with. It helps you to control your recoil and also makes your aim stable while scoped in. This attachment is so important that if you are not using it, you are already in a disadvantage as compared to the player who is using it. So, this attachment is highly recommended to be used in your loadouts.

Rear Grip

This attachment allows you to scope into your rifle or your SMG faster. It is very useful as it allows you to scope in quickly and shoot your opponents faster than you can without using the Rear Grip. This attachment goes well with the assault rifles and the SMG. If you like running and gunning, it provides you with an edge as you can scope in faster and shoot down your opponents.

Barrel

This is a very beneficial attachment if you are looking to hit the enemy from a longer range. Now, there is only one type of barrel present there in the game until now – Long Barrel. But as the COD Mobike Gunsmith is coming in the next season, you will be getting an ample amount of options to customize your weapons according to your ease.

How to get the highest level weapon in COD Mobile Gunsmith?

The COD Mobile Gunsmith adds a new weapon XP progression system in the game. Weapons are all delegated to base types now, like the M4, PDW-57, Type 25, ICR-1, or any of others. Each weapon type has a weapon XP system attached to it, meaning now you have to level up that weapon type, not the specific variant (like M4 Backscratcher, RUS 79U Viking). Your weapon variant with the highest level of that type will determine your new overall level for that weapon type.

For example, if your highest AK117 variant was level 8 now your overall AK117 level is 8.

Weapon types can be advanced up to level 50+. Every level you unlock equals a new attachment.


COD Mobile Gunsmith: Multiplayer

The first thing you will likely notice about Multiplayer after this update is that you will now have 10 loadout slots to unlock. Each loadout can now be equipped with a customized weapon or one of the new blueprint weapons.

To accommodate all of these amazing additions, your loadouts will get reset. So be sure to take some time setting your loadouts back up when the update releases.


COD Mobile Gunsmith: Battle Royale

While most of COD Mobile Gunsmith’s new features are widespread and touch all aspects of the game, there are a few specific changes just for Battle Royale which are a part of the Gunsmith feature.

COD Mobile Gunsmith, Call of Duty Mobile Gunsmith

You can now find and acquire weapons of different rarities with pre-installed attachments. Unfortunately, you can no longer find attachments separately as you used to. Instead, there are now Gunmods that can be attached to a unique slot.

Addition to that, a new Battle Royale loadout menu will now be available where 5 loadout slots will now be available

You can acquire your customized Gunsmith weapons from your loadouts through Airdrops.


When will the COD Mobile Gunsmith arrive in the game?

The COD Mobile Gunsmith will be arriving in the season 9 of COD Mobile. The official date of release has been declared by Activision. Season 8 will be ending on 16th August and as Activision is following a monthly model for every season, so it is obvious that season 9will be commencing on the same day.
