The AS VAL is a fast-firing Assault Rifle with an insanely fast time-to-kill in Call of Duty: Mobile, so here are the best attachments and perks that you can use with it in Season 5.

CoD: Mobile’s Season 5 “In Deep Waters” update brought a variety of changes to the battle royale, including the arrival of the CR-56 AMAX from Modern Warfare and Warzone. A new Season also means there are new loadouts to try out.

The AS VAL Assault Rifle has a blistering high fire rate and time-to-kill, making it an excellent choice for close-range combat. We’ve built a loadout that improves everything that makes this AR great in Season 5.

Best AS VAL attachments for CoD: Mobile

CoD Mobile AS VAL blueprint
  • Barrel: MIP 200mm Mid-Range
  • Stock: YKM Combat
  • Laser: OWC Laser – Tactical
  • Ammunition: Large Extended Mag B
  • Rear Grip: Granulated Grip Tape

This AS VAL loadout is built to dominate at close range, taking advantage of its clean iron sights and fast TTK in CoD: Mobile. We’ll start off with the MIP 200mm Mid-Range barrel to improve the gun’s damage range and bullet speed.

However, this reduce your ADS speed slightly, but we can make up for that with the YKM Combat Stock. This attachment will reduce ADS bullet spread accuracy, so we’ll attach the OWC Laser – Tactical to get your precision back on track.

Reloading the AS VAL in CoD: Mobile

This weapon’s stability can become tough to control if you’re firing it frequently, so the Granulated Grip Tape will help keep it steady. It will further boost the weapon’s ADS bullet spread accuracy, granting you easier control.

To make sure you can take out multiple targets without being delayed by a reload, it’s also worth adding the Large Extended Mag B. This will work with the AS VAL’s high firing rate while improving its magazine capacity.

Best perks to run with CoD: Mobile AS VAL

CoD Mobile Fast Recover perk
  • Red Perk: Fast Recover
  • Green Perk: Vulture
  • Blue Perk: Dead Silence

Now that we’ve gotten the right attachments, we’ll need the equip the best perks to make the AS VAL formidable in close-range combat. We’ll start off with Fast Recover, as this will allow you to instantly regain the health lose.

Next, you’ll need to ensure that you’re able to resupply your ammo quickly, without being left vulnerable to enemy gunfire for too long. The Vulture Perk will take care of that, letting you make full use of the weapon’s impressive fire-rate.

Finally, we’ll cap off this loadout with the Dead Silence perk so that you can sneak up on your enemies without being detected. This will come in handy while you navigate tight corners, where an opponent can pop up at any moment.

How to unlock the AS VAL in CoD: Mobile

Are there bots in CoD: Mobile? How to practice with AI

Most online games of CoD: Mobile feature tons of real-life players, but can they can also feature bots as well?

Published

cod mobile characters and bots

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.
