The KRM 262 is one of Call of Duty: Mobile’s most powerful weapons, but what is the best set-up and class for it? Well, there are a few tips and tricks to use ahead of Season 10.

With Call of Duty Mobile Season 9, Conquest, quickly drawing to a close, fans of the extremely popular mobile game are gearing up for Season 10 and everything that will be in store for them there. 

The developers have already revealed that Modern Warfare’s Pine Gunfight map will be joining the map pool, as will the classic Headquarters game mode, but they haven’t yet confirmed what the new weapon will be.

With all signs pointing towards a shotgun, the current crop could be for some changes, but there are still some incredibly powerful shotguns – most notably, the KRM 262.

CoD Mobile puts some of Call of Duty’s most popular features in one game.

The popular shotgun, which stems from Call of Duty Black Ops 3 has been in CoD Mobile since Season 3 and is arguably the standout of the close-quarters weapons. 

You can easily one-pump an enemy with the shotgun without making any tweaks, but if you truly want to run riot, throw on some attachments like the Extended Barrel and MIP Laser 5mW. These will keep things nice and steady. 

As for everything else, you can mess about with stocks and grips, but its easier to eye up a perk and muzzle. Specifically, take a look at Sleight of Hand and the Choke. 

  • Muzzle: Choke
  • Laser:  MIP Laser 5mW
  • Barrel: Extended Barrel
  • Perk: Sleight of Hand 

Obviously, only taking four attachments does leave an empty gap, and you can experiment with sights or something else, but that’s the best set up if you want to up close and personal while also being extremely accurate.

To round out your class, you’ll need perks and it’s hard to go wrong with the classic line up of Lightweight, Toughness, and Dead Silence.

Best way to use zombie abilities in Warzone’s Zombie Royale

Surviving as one of  Warzone’s fleshy undead can be a little tricky in the new Zombie Royale mode, but these tips should have you ripping and tearing your way to victory in no time. 

Warzone’s Halloween festivities are well underway and players have been busy unleashing their inner beast when playing the terrifyingly good LTM, Zombie Royale. The frozen fields of Verdansk have been cloaked in darkness and squads will need to work together if they wish to survive the horrors that await them. In this mode, dead operators skip the Gulag and instead come back as nightmarish zombies. While in this new undead form, players drop all their current equipment and perks.

If you wish to ever see your human form again, you’ll need to use your unique abilities to kill any players that dare to walk amongst the undead. While Zombie Royale’s reanimated corpses may have access to some incredibly potent attacks, they can be killed incredibly easily if you’re not careful. In order to help you get to grips with your newfound zombie form, we’ve put together a handy survival guide that should help you secure more kills.

Warzone’s Zombies have access to some incredibly powerful abilities.

Passive abilities

Warzone’s zombies aren’t your standard shambling corpses – in fact, they have incredible agility. Their passive ability gives every undead player faster movement speed and stronger melee attacks, allowing you to quickly chase down your fleeing victims. Once you’ve tracked them down, swipe at them with your deadly strikes to snuff their life out for good. 

Zombies also have superior vision and can easily see nearby operators. Enemy players are highlighted and their footprints can be tracked, giving you plenty of opportunities to pounce on your newfound target. If that wasn’t enough, zombies are also immune to the gas circle and gas grenades. This allows you to set up some frightfully sneaky plays. 

Charged Jump

Arguably the most fun Zombie ability is the Charged Jump. This highly mobile move allows you to effortlessly leap onto rooftops, scale cliffs, evade enemy fire and initiate fights. You can adjust both the distance and height by holding down the Charged Jump button, so be sure to experiment with this before leaping towards your enemy. 

EMP Blast 

This ability works exactly the same as Modern Warefare’s EMP Drone in that it destroys enemy electronics, equipment, vehicles, and disables digital optics. Your enemy’s HUD will also be disabled if they get caught within the blast’s radius. 

Gas Grenade

Gas Grenades are incredibly potent in Warzone since they disorient your enemies and slow down their movements. Combine this with the high mobility from Zombie Royale’s undead and you have a lethal combination.

You’ll need to learn how to use these zombie abilities if you wish to increase your survivability.

Before you go chasing the nearest player, it’s often best to scan your surroundings for any enemy players that are alone. Not only will this stop your fleshy body from being riddled with bullets, it will also increase your chances of securing a successful kill. While it can be tempting to rush into the fray with your Charged Jump, it does give away your position thanks to the ability’s glow effect. 

Instead, it’s often best to use the cover of darkness to sneak up on them. Once you’ve successfully got within a few meters, it’s time to unleash your EMP Blast. This will instantly destroy any Proximity Mines and Claymore’s, allowing you to safely enter even the most fortified defenses. To make matters even better, the initial blast also reduces visibility and will cause most players to panic — giving you the moment to strike.

Once you have disabled any equipment and digital optics, it’s time to throw in your Gas Grenade. When the grenade has filled the room with deadly toxins, instantly run in and begin clawing away at your hapless victim. The slowing effect and overall disorientation from both abilities should make any escape futile.

Even if your enemy does manage to make a break for it, simply activate your Charged Jump to catch up to them. Just be aware that doing this will make you highly visible to nearby squads, so only use this ability when you have to. 

If you use these tips, you’ll be able to secure more kills as a zombie in Warzone’s Zombie Royale mode.
