CoD Mobile fans can wield a brand new weapon in the form of the semi-auto Echo shotgun in Season 10, The Hunt. So, here’s an early class setup that should have you topping the leaderboards. 

Call of Duty Mobile has finally made the leap to Season 10, which has been given the name of The Hunt. 

As had been confirmed during Season 9, Terminal is available as a multiplayer map, and Headquarters has finally debuted as a new mode. On top of that, you’ve also got a new weapon added to the weapon pool.

Again, as expected, this is a shotgun with the Echo being added to the mix. Though it might be called Echo, Modern Warfare fans will recognize it as the Origin 12 Shotgun that has become a big part of the meta in Warzone.

Given that its such a popular weapon in Warzone, you might expect it to be super powerful in CoD Mobile – and you’d be right. Though, you do have to set it up in the right way. 

The shotgun has solid enough base damage and accuracy, but throw on both the Muzzle and the MIP Laser 5mW, and you’ll see things start to look even better. 

As you’ll be doing the majority of your fighting at close quarters, you’ll also want speed on your side. That’s why you should take the 12 Round Reload as your ammunition and Sleight of Hand as a perk. You’ll be able to reload super quick while in a jam. 

  • Muzzle: Choke.
  • Barrel: MIP Extended Light Barrel.
  • Laser: MIP Laser 5mW
  • Ammunition: 12 Round Reload
  • Perk: Sleight of Hand

How to unlock the Echo shotgun in CoD Mobile

If you’re wondering how to unlock the new Shotgun, you don’t have to worry about having luck with the lucky draw or having to grind through 50 or so levels. 

No, instead, the weapon is available at level 21 of the Season 10 battle pass. Simply play some games, hit the required level, and you’ll then unlock the weapon. It really is that easy. 

Of course, to make sure you hit your full potential with the weapon, you will have to start from the bottom and play games with it. The more kills you rack up, the higher your weapon level will be, which means more attachments for you to use. So, happy hunting.

NICKMERCS rates the best Warzone players from to Scump to HusKerrs

Tasked with drafting a team for a Call of Duty: Warzone tournament, NICKMERCS went through some of the game’s biggest names, ranking them while determining who he would most want to duo with.

To start Davis ‘Hitch’ Edwards’ $10,000 “Cracked Creators” Warzone tournament, 16 creators were tasked with drafting their duo from 16 “cracked” streamers.

As one of the creators allowed to select their tandem, NICKMERCS sifted through 16 of the game’s best to determine who he would prefer to play with.

Ultimately, the FaZe streamer ended up putting his decision to a poll among his fans. But, before doing so, he originally went through all 16 and gave thoughts on how each of them ranks. And the options were varied, but all shared one thing in common: talent.

With professional Call of Duty League players like Matthew ‘FormaL’ Piper and Seth ‘Scump’ Abner available, as well as Warzone streamers like Aydan and HusKerrs, the candidates were excellent. Still, NICKMERCS sifted through and broke down who he truly believes ranks as the battle royale’s best.

Segment begins at 00:20:45.

NICKMERCS starts by going through the list and just expressing what an absolute struggle it will be to pick from such a talented crop of peers: “Oh, it’s going to be so hard to pick man … No matter what, everybody that I would pick from is cracked.” But, after going through and complimenting practically everybody, he starts the process of elimination.

Since Nick chooses second after DrDisrespect, he immediately eliminates Zlaner as Doc’s likely first pick. Then, he eliminates JoeWo with two simple reasons: “I’ve never played with him and every time I play against him, I beat that little ass.”

Then, BobbyPoff is gone: “BobbyPoff, I love the guy, but take him off the list.” And the “Scarf Lord” is followed quickly by the Chicago Huntsmen’s FormaL and Scump: “Love ‘em, love ‘em. But I feel like there’s better BR players.” After that, things start getting complicated.

Similar to Zlaner, Nick decides to sacrifice Merk so that he can play with his longtime duo, Maven. Then, recognizing that all of these remaining players are absolute menaces on Verdansk, he goes with two simple metrics to determine his personal preference. He immediately prioritizes controller players and the highest earners in Warzone tournaments.

That eliminates stars like HusKerrs and Symfuhny for their mouse and keyboard usage, while also eliminating Crowder and DougIsRaw for their low earnings. Finally, he eliminates Jukeyz because of his struggles understanding the UK maestro’s accent and decides to put the decision to a poll.


Ultimately, it’s between Aydan and Tommey, with Cloakzy popping on to let NICKMERCS know that Aydan’s been playing some Fortnite recently. That leaves the FaZe star choosing Tommey, noting that “he’s got great communication, phenomenal player, guaranteed to get some chopper kills off rip.”

Despite going through full rankings for his options and landing upon an excellent duo, the decision-making process proved to be futile. NICKMERCS and Tommey could only end in the Top 12 for the tournament, while the easily dismissed BobbyPoff actually came in first place.
