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
- 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.
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
- 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
To unlock the AS VAL in CoD: Mobile Season 5, you simply need to hit Tier 21 in the Battle Pass. This is also a free unlock, so you don’t have to purchase anything to use the AS VAL.

Best alternatives to CoD Mobile AS VAL
If you’re looking for a strong alternative to the AS VAL then we strongly recommend going with the QQ9 for its fluid mobility and obnoxiously high fire rate. The PP19 Bizon is also a great pick for reasonable fire rate and impressive magazine size.

The Oden Assault Rifle from Modern Warfare will be making its Call of Duty Mobile debut in Season 5, Tropical Vision, and here’s how you can get your hands on the powerful weapon.
New CoD Mobile content is right around the corner as Season 5 Tropical Vision is set to arrive on June 1. Players will receive an exciting new Battle Pass to level up, as well as a Black Ops Cold War map called Apocalypse.

How to unlock the Oden in CoD Mobile
The Oden Assault Rifle can be unlocked by reaching Tier 21 of the CoD Mobile Tropical Vision Battle Pass. Luckily, it is a free tier in the Battle Pass, so all players will have access to the new weapon.

As the devs put it, the Oden “is perfect for defending objectives and covering teammates rushing into the thick of battle.” You can definitely hold down lanes with ease thanks to the Oden’s damage output.

At the time of writing, we do not have any confirmed information concerning the release date of Warzone Mobile. Activision confirmed on March 10 that the game is in development, but they’ve not provided the release date yet.
Prior to the official announcement of the game, a few leaks suggested that the handheld battle royale game could see a release as early as 2022. However, this is purely speculation, and we’ll be sure to update you as soon as we know the official release date.
Call of Duty: Warzone Mobile details & new studios
The topic of conversation was really put under the spotlight when Activision officially announced that Warzone is coming to mobile. Along with the announcement, Activision also declared that they will be hiring individuals to work on the project.
Activision are aiming to hire talented individuals to help work on the game. “From production roles to engineering, design, art, marketing, and more, we’re looking for game-makers, passionate fans, and genuinely awesome people to join our diverse team, inspired to deliver the next world-class mobile gaming experience to fans,” they announced.

Warzone Mobile Project Aurora Closed Alpha
Thanks to a Call of Duty blog post, we know that the official codename for Warzone Mobile is Project Aurora. The blog confirmed that the game’s development is set to continue and that a Closed Alpha period would begin soon, “the game is still in development, and we are in the midst of our first gameplay test in the Project Aurora Closed Alpha.”
Unfortunately, players cannot sign up to the Alpha and can only access an early version of Warzone Mobile through private invitations.
The devs explained the reason behind the small test group, “the Closed Alpha is limited in size and with it we are looking to simply start to improve tuning, stress test matches, identify and fix bugs, as well as collect feedback and insights on all aspects of the game as new features come online.”
The blog did not offer a ton of information as the Call of Duty team remain tight-lipped about Warzone Mobile details.

While Activision haven’t officially revealed the locations that Warzone Mobile players will be able to drop into, a report from Call of Duty data miner ‘TheGhostOfHope, hints that the classic Verdansk map will make its return.
The leaker also claimed that the Verdansk in Warzone Mobile will be an alternative version of the classic map, featuring a mix of certain familiar POIs that fans have seen before along with some new locations.
However, this is just a leak and this information has not been officially verified by Activision yet. So, it’s worth taking it with a grain of salt until the developers confirm the return of Verdansk.
