Call of Duty Mobile Introduces a Second Marksman Rifle In the Mid-Season Update

Published 02/19/2021, 12:45 PM EST


Call of Duty Mobile opened the marksman rifle category with the Kilo-Bolt rifle back in 2020. However, after a considerable gap, players now have a second marksman rifle to wield in the game. Unlike sniper rifles, these weapons have a faster rate of fire and can also execute in one-shot.

Marksman rifles have better mobility and players can use iron-sights for better ADS time. The second marksman rifle in the game is the SKS. Its damage is 81 and comes with a base accuracy of 70. Players can tweak all these stats in the Gunsmith and make it a weapon more suited to their play style. We recommend a sniper scope for better accuracy.

Players can unlock the weapon by two methods. A legendary version is available in today’s Lucky Draw. In exchange of in-game currency, players can obtain the legendary SKS-Particle Splitter. Along with the weapon, they stand a chance to unlock the second Witch Doctor skin, Wrong Medicine.

However, a free-to-play version of the weapon is also available in the game. Players need to complete the BR Buff Seasonal Challenge to procure the new weapon. It is a set of eight custom challenges comprising missions in the Battle Royale mode.

Call of Duty Mobile Credit Store update

Call of Duty Mobile’s mid season update included a credit store refresh. The Credit Store provides players with exciting new camos and ornaments for free. Players earn credits by playing the game, after which they can accumulate them to shop in this store.

However, the weapon camos in this shop are mostly of the Rare or Common rarity. Therefore, we would advise players to spend the Credits judiciously and wait for good content to drop.
