Call of Duty Mobile is set to launch a brand new weapon rarity that goes above Legendary and we’ve got an early rundown of the first details for the upcoming Fennec Ascended.

CoD Mobile players have been treated to five unique types of loot since launch. Weapon’s scale from Common all the way up to Legendary with the latter being extremely hard to come by. Soon, there will be an even more shocking weapon tier to unlock.

Mythic weapons are on the way to the mobile experience with the Ascended drop right around the corner. While the Fennec has been available to unlock in its base form, you’ll soon have a new Mythic version to track down.

It’s shaping up to be the rarest unlock in the game, so if you see one in the wild it should feel pretty special. From when it becomes available to how it functions, we’ve got you covered with some early details.

CoD Mobile’s first Mythic weapon drop

The Fennec will be the first weapon in CoD Mobile to be given the Mythic treatment. Already known as a powerful SMG that you can dual wield in any multiplayer mode, the new tier looks to be another step up.

Cosmetic improvements is a big focus as the Mythic gun can be customized in a number of new ways. Trading out attachments is obvious but this weapon also appears to change color – perhaps with each sequential kill. 

From a vibrant orange to red and through to blue. This weapon can be made to feel like your own as the first-ever Mythic takes customization “to the next level.”

When will the Fennec Ascended be available?

While the announcement post itself hinted at a release date later in the week, the accompanying video locked in a solid time. The very first Mythic weapon in CoD Mobile will be live on Friday, November 6.

There’s currently no telling how this new rarity will be unlocked. While some cosmetics are locked behind Battle Pass Tiers, others can only be accessed through randomized loot crates. There’s even a chance that a specific Mythic pack is purchasable at launch. We’ll be sure to keep you updated as that information becomes available.

As the first of its kind, a lot of questions still remain unanswered for the new weapon rarity. It will still appear as a basic weapon blueprint “at the surface level,” the developers confirmed. However, the new rarity provides all-new options for “bada** cosmetics.”

“Nothing about this is meant to alter gameplay balance or make you better competitively, but it is meant to make your item look unique, just like reactive camos or death effects.”

Be sure to start saving up your in-game currency to prepare for the drop over the next few days. The first Mythic weapon is sure to make a splash. After all, we already know how powerful the Fennec can be in the right hands.

Best Pellington 703 loadout for Black Ops Cold War: Attachments, Perks, Equipment

The Pellington 703 is the perfect weapon for players looking to play aggressively with a sniper rifle in CoD Black Ops Cold War.

Black Ops Cold War has three different snipers and each of them suits a different playstyle. For players who prefer to push others and maneuver around the map, the Pellington 703 should be your weapon of choice.

It’s worth noting that Cold War has the longest ADS time for snipers out of any Call of Duty game. This has led to players struggling to quick scope consistently and writing off snipers as weak. Although there are certainly easier weapons to master in Cold War, nothing will beat landing multiple shots with a sniper in a single streak.

Despite Cold War’s long ADS times, there are a number of attachments that can mitigate this and give you a sniper loadout that’s lethal in online matches.

Best Pellington 703 loadout in Black Ops Cold War

Here’s how you need to kit out your Pellington 703 sniper for the most effective multiplayer loadout.

Pellington 703 loadout Attachments

  • Barrell: 26.5 Tiger Team
  • Body: Steady Aim Laser
  • Magazine: 7 RND
  • Handle: Serpent Wrap
  • Stock: Marathon Stock

Perks

  • Perk 1: Tactical Mask
  • Perk 2: Gear Head
  • Perk 3: Ghost

Wild Card

  • Law Breaker

Equipment

  • Lethal: Frag Grenade
  • Tactical: Stimshot
  • Field Upgrade: Field Mic

This loadout focuses on allowing you to play aggressively. In terms of attachments, the Tiger Team barrel increases the Pellington’s damage output by 20%. This means fewer hit markers and more one-shot kills.

The Steady Aim Laser improves the effectiveness of the weapon at close range using hip-fire. Finally, the Serpent Wrap reduces the Pellington’s ADS time by 10%, making it a perfect attachment for any of the snipers in Cold War.

The Pellington 703 has the fastest ADS time out of any sniper in Cold War.

Moving onto perks, Tactical Mask is always useful to have when running an aggressive loadout that is seeking gunfights. The combination of Gear Head and the Field Mic is a great pairing for multiplayer and allows you to spam your field upgrade on cooldown. Finally, Ghost gives you the peace of mind that the endless spy planes in the air can’t track your every move when you’re running around the map.

Equipment in this loadout is fairly standard but you should focus on using the Field Mic whenever it’s off cooldown to gain valuable information. The reduced cooldown from the Gear Head perk is incredibly useful and will allow you to track the location of the enemy team.

Now, all there’s to do is make this Pellington 703 loadout and try it out in Multiplayer for yourself.
