Ever wondered if every player you play online with in CoD: Mobile is real? Well, we have all the details on whether or not bots exist in multiplayer, and also find out how you can practice against them too.

There is a long-standing belief that in the first few ranks of CoD: Mobile you’ll face mostly, if not all, bots in your online games. Players will find that if they can adjust to the controls quickly, then they can rack up some serious kills from the get-go.

However, this isn’t necessarily because you’re an expert marksman in CoD: Mobile, but more so due to the presence of simulated players. So let’s discuss the likelihood of bots in CoD: Mobile, and how to practice against them too.

Do you play against bots in CoD: Mobile?

Even though Activision or devs TiMi Studio Group haven’t come out and directly addressed it, we’re 99.99% sure that bots do exist in online games of CoD: Mobile.

Playing Call of Duty on a smaller, handheld device requires a lot more precision due to its slightly fiddly nature. So it’s only natural that it might take some time to adjust, or you just might be a new player in general that is getting to grips with Call of Duty.

So until you reach about Level 10 in CoD: Mobile, you’ll find that in your first few games that you’re almost godlike – finishing with insane K/D ratios. This is because you’re playing nothing but bots. You can still get bots in later levels too if the lobby is struggling to fill up for whatever reason.

It’s also quite easy to tell the difference between a bot and a real player as well. Yes, there will inevitably be newcomers that struggle with CoD: Mobile, but they still act naturally.

Whereas bots will repeatedly duck and dodge in cover in a completely robotic way following the same scripted path. Additionally, they also stand out in the open not even attempting to take cover and move into completely bizarre positions.

YouTube user ExxotikGaming has created an incredibly useful video that can assist you in identifying bots in a game.

You can check it out below.

CoD: Mobile how to practice against the A.I

If you’re eager to try out some new weapons or test your aim in CoD: Mobile so that you can perform better in actual matches, then you might want to practice.

This is very easy and straightforward to do:

  1. Load up CoD: Mobile
  2. At the main menu, press on the ‘Multiplayer’ option
  3. Make your way down through the options until you get to the ‘Practice’ choice
  4. Go across to ‘Practice vs. AI’
  5. Select the game mode and play a 5v5 match

The game will inform you that you will earn XP at a “90% reduction,” but that’s not why you’re in practice anyway.


So if you’re new to the game, or encounter a strange-looking and behaving enemy, then consider the possibility that they are indeed a bot.

The 5 Best weapons in Call of Duty: Mobile

Since launching on October 1, 2019, CoD: Mobile has taken handheld gaming by storm and made Activision even more successful. The game boasts many fearsome weapons, so we’ve ranked the guns from worst to best.

Since its reboot, Call of Duty: Mobile has come a long way, with the game now absolutely rammed with content. The recent Season 8 update has added even more maps, even more guns, and the fans can’t get enough.

Every Call of Duty game establishes a consistent meta that gamers will hone in on and make the most of. Naturally, the devs will constantly check the data to see which guns are performing, which are not and introduce buffs and nerfs accordingly.

CoD: Mobile has many guns to use, and we’ve gone through them all to try and decide which are perhaps not as proficient in the art of killing, and which simply rule the game.

CoD: Mobile best guns

10. MSMC

A blistering fire rate makes the MSMC one of the most important weapons in the whole game.

It does mean that some accuracy and recoil are sacrificed to accompany it, but it’s still a powerful and fun gun to use.

9. MK2 Carbine

mk2 carbine in cod mobile

One of CoD: Mobile’s elite rifles, the MK2 Carbine continues to be an absolute monster in Season 7, and it’s a terrific long-range option if you have the skill to wield it.

It was already a valid choice in the handheld game, but several buffs in Season 6 made it extremely viable and must-use.

8. Locus

A very intimidating Sniper Rifle to come up against as its damage and fire rate make it a nuisance to counteract.

It is sadly let down by its after-shot recoil though, which gives players a chance to strike.

7. MX-9

Overall, the MX-9 is one of those guns that doesn’t necessarily excel in any given category it’s judged on. Yet it’s an optimal performer that can be used to great effect in virtually any game mode.

6. HVK-30

A very well-balanced Assault Rifle that is pretty much great in all categories, meaning its only downside is that it doesn’t truly excel in any area.

This is not a bad thing, and it’s why the HVK-30 is still chosen by many.

5. QQ9 – Best SMG in CoD: Mobile

If you want an easy-to-handle SMG with fluid mobility and an obnoxiously high fire rate, then the QQ9 is your choice.

The ADS is pretty swift and speeds up the TTK, which makes it comfortably the best SMG in CoD: Mobile.

4. ASM10

ASM10 in cod mobile season 2

It doesn’t possess the best fire rate of an Assault Rifle, but it makes up for this with meaty rounds that can inflict some serious damage.

A popular gun that continues to feature in many loadouts.

3. DR-H

dr-h in cod mobile season 2

Extremely efficient, the DR-H has a superb fire rate for an Assault Rifle, and packs more punch than it’s given credit for. If you can control its recoil, then the DR-H is a beast.

2. DL Q33 – Best Sniper Rifle in CoD: Mobile

Placing this high on the list may come down to ability in terms of Sniper Rifles, but at the end of the day, the DL Q33 is unstoppable.

It virtually one-shots everything and is incredibly accurate, making it an impeccable weapon.

1. Man-O-War – Best Assault Rifle in CoD: Mobile

cod mobile man-o-war

This compact weapon of mass destruction continues to dominate CoD: Mobile with its very-high DPS, manageable recoil, and understated accuracy. There is simply no better gun to use in CoD: Mobile.

That completes our list. These are the best weapons tiered and ranked in Call of Duty: Mobile. Be sure to check out the best guns in Cold War and the best guns in Warzone too!
