The Kilo Bolt-Action is Call of Duty: Mobile’s newest weapon, but what is the best set-up and class for it? Well, there are a few tips and tricks to use off the bat.

With the start of Call of Duty: Mobile Season 9, there’s a new map and weapon to master in the form of Shipment 1944 and the Kilo Bolt-Action.

The new weapon, which is just the Kar98K with a new name, is the first Marksman Rifle to make its way into CoD Mobile. It’s different from a traditional sniper given that it doesn’t have a huge barrel, scope, and isn’t all that lethal at long range. 

If you want to get your hands on the new weapon type, you will have to hit level 21 in the free battle pass. Once you get there, you’ll need a strong loadout. So, we’ve got you covered on that front.

The majority of players who use the Kilo Bolt-Action, will want to get up close and personal with their enemies given that the weapon is deadly in the medium to short ranges. 

If that’s your playstyle, you’re fine enough to not really tweak the weapon, but, it could do with a bit of a range increase otherwise. This will help you not get punished in close-quarters by something with a faster fire rate.

Therefore, you’ll need to look at attachments like an extended barrel and an optic to increase the range off the bat. After that, stopping power rounds might slow you do but they’re a help too. 

  • Ammunition: OWC Stopping Power
  • Barrel: MIP Extended Light Barrel
  • Laser: OWC Laser – Tactical
  • Optic: 4x Tactical Scope
  • Perk: Long Shot

Obviously, you’ll need to grind through games to get your hands on these attachments, but if you manage to grind your battle pass all the way to the end, you will get the Lazarus blueprint.

This, as CoD Mobile YouTuber Ferg shows, is pretty deadly in its current state. In fact, the YouTuber was even able to pick up a Nuke thanks to its increased power. Though, as noted, you will need to hit level 50 on the Premium Battle Pass.

Aside from giving your weapon a boost, you will need the perks to really create the best class possible. As usual, Lightweight, Toughness, and Dead Silence are top-notch picks. 

For the full customization experience, once you’ve got some games under your belt, you can use the new Gunsmith feature to make the Marksmen Rifle your own.

Black Ops Cold War already set new Call of Duty player record in the Beta

The Call of Duty franchise is showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon as Treyarch’s recent Black Ops Cold War Beta went above expectations and shattered records.

Ever since the release of the first CoD title in 2003, the franchise has only continued to grow. Year after year more players hop on board to see what the latest title has in store. Whether fans gravitate towards single-player campaigns, cooperative experiences, or classic multiplayer competition, there’s something for everyone.

2020 is shaping up to be no different as Treyarch is firing on all cylinders for the Black Ops Cold War release. Everything from Zombies to Warzone will be on offer and it’s already clear that the community is hungry for it all.

After an impressive Alpha test on the PlayStation 4 that became the biggest in franchise history, that record has once again been broken. This time, by the Black Ops Cold War Beta that followed just weeks later.

Having kicked off exclusively for PS4 users on October 8 before jumping to all platforms on October 15, the Black Ops Cold War Beta was played by a staggering number of people. In fact, it was “the most downloaded [Beta] in Call of Duty history,” the developers revealed on October 23.

No exact figures were revealed for the history Beta. Though it being publicly available across Xbox One, PS4, and PC over the final days was sure to have helped boost the figures.

Not only is this a hugely positive sign before the launch of Black Ops Cold War, but it continues a trend from previous iterations. 2019’s Modern Warfare also broke records with its early access Beta period. 

Last year’s records also didn’t come with any specific numbers, though Activision assured the Modern Warfare Beta attracted more players than ever before.

Also of note, those players logged more hours played than any Beta in franchise history. It’s now clear that Black Ops Cold War has been yet another step up in terms of early engagement.

It’s obviously too early to tell just how this might indicate sales for the release come November 13. However, to get into the Beta early, a majority of players needed to preorder on their platform of choice. So that’s certainly a good sign just weeks out from launch.

2019’s Modern Warfare topped over $600 million in sales across its first three days on the market. That instantly made it the highest-selling CoD of the generation. Though Black Ops Cold War could be on track to go even further this year.
