Sniping takes many forms in CoD: Mobile – the silent assassin is as viable as the door-kicking room clearer, but only with the right sniper loadout. Which perks, upgrades, and strategies you employ deeply affects the performance of the gun and game experience.
The gunsmith function allows for up to five attachments (including a single perk) that can wildly change how your weapon hits, feels, and handles. Every weapon comes with its own pros and cons, and none are perfect.
Despite that, we have a list of the five best sniper rifle loadouts for varying playstyles and situations in CoD: Mobile. We’ll make sure you’re picking off your targets with absolutely lethal precision.
5 Best Sniper Rifle Loadouts in CoD: Mobile
Each sniper loadout on this list is optimized for a specific role in CoD: Mobile. The best one will depend on your situation and playstyle.
The Doorkicker Loadout (M21 EBR)
The M21 is for players who split their time between room clearing and long shots. It’s speedy and mobile, with a lighter round capable of headshot kills. Close to mid-range fights are where this build excels.
- 20 Round Reload
- OWC Laster-Tactical
- MIP Extended Light Barrel
- 3x Tactical Scope
- YKM Light Stock
The M21 EBR is a versatile DMR with high mobility, and ADS speed good enough to clear rooms. It is less powerful at long ranges than some of its brethren, but its maneuverability means on-target follow-up shots.
The 10-round mag goes fast, so upgrade to 20-Round Reload as soon as possible. The MIP Extended Light Barrel and OWC tac laser offer speed buffs, while the 3x scope complements the M21’s hybrid role perfecty, providing a good blend of sight picture and magnification. The result is a quick, light rifle suitable for double tapping all over the map.
Recommended Maps: Crash, Crossfire, Firing Range
The Devastator Loadout (ZRG 20mm)
What kind of gamers would we be if we didn’t build the biggest, most powerful gun in CoD: Mobile? The ZRG 20mm tops the scale with a 95 damage rating, which it trades for being slow and unwieldy.
- OWC Marksman
- RTC Steady Stock
- RTC Compensator
- Fast Switch
You might only get one chance with this bolt-action, so make sure you’re on target by pairing the RTC Steady Stock and RTC Compensator for better breathing, crosshairs drift, recoil, and hit flinch stats. The Bipod and OWC Marksman Barrel increase stability and reduce recoil to ensure accuracy.
Room clearing is not advisable with this setup, so grabbing a secondary is a good idea. Give yourself the Fast Switch perk and pick up a secondary that’s ideal for close work. This build will work best on maps with long sight lines and high hiding spaces.
Recommended Maps: Crossfire, High Rise, Standoff
The All-Rounder Loadout (Rytec AMR)
The AMR has a small magazine capacity, but its power and semi-automatic speed make it a sniper that mixes the best of both worlds.
- FSS Nomad Stock
- 9-Round Mag
- Monolithic Suppressor
- 4x Tactical Scope
The Rytec AMR combines semi-automatic speed with bolt-action power. It’s a little slower than the M21 but also more powerful, perfect for mobile shooters thirsty for single-shot kills. The FSS Nomad Stock boosts ADS Movement when you need that second shot. Speaking of second shots, the stock 5-round mag is pitiful, so upgrade to a 9-rounder.
The Bipod boosts control, and the 4x Tactical Scope is a compromise for fighting near and far. With this setup, the Rytec will stack hits in any situation.
Recommended Maps: Terminal, Slums, Scrapyard
The Ninja Loadout (DL Q33)
The OG sniper, the DL Q33 feels almost too agile to be a boltie. It snaps to target and offers single-shot body kills that’ll leave the enemy reeling and have you feeling like a combat god.
- YKM Combat Stock
- 6x Tactical Scope B
- OWC Light Suppressor
- Maevwat Omega-1
- MIP Light Barrel
The first available sniper rifle can go full ninja mode. It’s mobile, quick to bring on target, and delivers one-shot body taps more often than not.
Add the Wounding perk to keep up that kill rate and trade the .408 Standard for the MIP Light Barrel. The small loss in mobility more than makes up for the increases to accuracy, range, and control. Cap it off with the OWC Light Suppressor for the coolest sounding gun in the game.
Recommended Maps: Firing Range, Meltdown, Summit
The Ugly One Loadout (Koshka)
The Koshka might be ugly, but it gets the job done. It makes up for poor mobility and speed with one-shot power that sends enemies sprawling.
- 10-Round Mag
- Stippled Grip Tape
- 3x Tactical Scope B
- OWC Skeleton Stock
- Headshot Slow
The cost of missing with the Koshka is high. It cycles slowly and comes with a pitifully small magazine. The extra capacity comes at a slight movement and reload penalty, but more than doubles the amount of bangs before it goes click.
Because it trades power for mobility, anything that helps the Koshka get on target before your enemy does is a major boon. Throw Stippled Grip Tape on the stock to speed up ADS and sprint-to-shoot time.
The barrel attachments come with performance drawbacks, so consider swapping a slot out for Headshot Slow. After all, it is a sniper rifle. Stick with the 3x Tactical Scope – the 6x narrows the field of view by an uncomfortable amount for a gun that’s so dependent on its critical first shot.
