CoD Mobile: The Best LMGs (2024)

It is a gaming truism that LMGs are heavier and slower to manipulate but come with bonuses like large magazine capacities, high fire rates, and respectable firepower. This is as true in COD: Mobile as in most shooters. The LMG class embodies pure devastation and unrelenting firepower, making it the ultimate choice for those seeking to unleash chaos on the battlefield. You’ll find our tier list followed by a more in-depth explanation for each ranking in our best LMGs in CoD: Mobile guide below.

CoD: Mobile LMG Tier List

Like anything else, there are drawbacks. Most LMGs are atrocious when it comes to hip fire. You’ll see rounds spraying everywhere but your target if you can’t get the weapon up in time, and that is a recurring problem for this class. 

With 9 LMGs, it can take a while to grind up and discover which works best for you. Not all are created equal. There is a level of subjectivity to calling anything the best, but some of the offerings are clearly superior to others. 

If experimenting is not your style, we run down all the LMGs for you from worst to first. Check out our guide to the best Light Machine Guns available in COD: Mobile.

D Tier

PKM

The PKM has the honor of being both the most accurate and highest damaging LMG, but it comes at a significant price. The mobility score is just over half of the other weapons in this class. If you’re not a player who likes to run and gun, the low ADS and running speed might work for you, but it is a major drawback.

C Tier

Hades

The Hades is as scary looking as its name, but we don’t pick weapons based on aesthetics. Unfortunately, nothing else about the Hades really stands out. It is not particularly powerful, and none of its other characteristics make up for that. The Crossbar grip attachment provides major boosts to speed and fire spread. 

RPD

The RPD is a chunky beast. It has the second-lowest mobility score of any LMG and doesn’t do much better at control. The rest of the stats are middling, and playing with it reinforces the stat sheet – the RPD is average at best. If you’re a fan of Soviet weaponry, you might find something to like about it, but there are better LMGs out there. 

B Tier

Chopper

The Chopper shoots faster than every other LMG, with the exception of the S36 – with which it ties. It uses a box-style magazine, which makes for a slower reload speed. The ammunition upgrades don’t offer a faster reload, but you can get up 50 extra rounds so at least you won’t have to go through the process as often. 

M4LMG

The Light Reload perk is an interesting option for the M4LMG. It negates one of the best characteristics of a machine gun – ammo capacity – in favor of vastly improved ADS, Movement, and Reload speeds. If cutting your capacity from the stock 100 down to 40 doesn’t bother you, it turns an LMG into what is essentially a beefed-up AR. 

S36

The UL376 has the best range, mobility, and control of its class, with one huge drawback — the stock magazine provides a paltry 30 rounds. The upshot is if you want the perks, you will have to spend some time leveling it up to get access to the 50 and 60-round magazines. These magazines are still about half of what even a stock LMG provides, but the UL376 is so good in most other aspects. Even with the reduced ammo, it is a super competent weapon. Once you begin classing it up, it becomes almost AR-like in its mobility. 

A Tier

Holger 26

The Holger 26 is a smooth shooter that feels more like an AR on steroids than some heavier LMGs. Light recoil, decent iron sights, and a quick mag change make it worth sticking with. The Double Stack Mag upgrade will make you feel like a real operator with significant ADS time and reload speed boosts. 

UL 376

The Holger 26 is a smooth shooter that feels more like an AR on steroids than some heavier LMGs. Light recoil, decent iron sights, and a quick mag change make it worth sticking with. The Double Stack Mag upgrade will make you feel like a real operator with significant ADS time and reload speed boosts. 

S Tier

Dingo

The Dingo might not be as mobile as an SMG, but it feels like a step above the other LMGs. One of the few drawbacks is an 80–round stock magazine, while others tend to be 100- still plenty to mow down an enemy team charging for the point. The first magazine unlock has a slight mobility debuff, but it’s worth it. The Dingo feels light and maneuverable, which mitigates its weakest-in-class Damage rating, as getting on target first is often more important than stopping power. The Dingo is the nuclear option, as you’ll be calling in nukes regularly with it in your hands.
