CoD Mobile Clan Wars

Call of Duty: Mobile Season 4 has introduced the new Clan Wars feature in which players battle it out in weekly competitions for their Clan to come out on top and earn various rewards along the way in their CoD: Mobile Clan Wars adventures.

Now that CoD Mobile Season 4 has arrived, Activision is looking to give players even more competitive options. Not only is there the upcoming CoD Mobile World Championship offering a prize pool of over $2 million (USD) and free rewards, but the new Clan Wars mode is being introduced.

CoD Mobile has described Clan Wars as the “biggest feature” since the Gunsmith System, so it’s sure to shake up the mobile shooter. Clan Wars allows players to team up with friends or strangers and compete to earn cosmetic rewards and climb the competitive leaderboards.

Here’s everything you need to know about CoD Mobile’s Clan Wars, from its release date to how to register with a Clan.

What is CoD Mobile Clan Wars?

Clan Wars is the newest competitive mode to arrive in CoD Mobile. Rather than Ranked mode where you’re in it for yourself, Clan Wars will have you join a team to dominate the leaderboards and earn rewards together.

Similar to the Ranked Series, Clan Wars will be a bi-seasonal competitive event that runs every two seasons. CoD Mobile devs explained that “Every two seasons it will reset, there will be new rewards, and your clan will have new chances to climb the leaderboards.”

CoD Mobile emphasized that Clan Wars isn’t just to play with a Clan and earn rewards, “but it is all meant to create competitive gameplay, opportunities to interact with your clan and other players, and a new way to provide more epic rewards.”

Clan Wars arrives as part of Season 4, and will launch on June 1, 2021.

This will be the beginning of the first Clan Wars event, with the mode expected to reset in Season 6, offering new rewards and leaderboards.

How to join a Clan in CoD Mobile

To get started in Clan Wars, you must first join a Clan. CoD Mobile assured players that even if you don’t have a Clan, you’ll be able to join one easily. “Once Clan Wars launches, there will be plenty of new clans forming up, and you’ll be able to find plenty of options to fit your needs,” the dev team explained.

They also said that you don’t have to be a super competitive player to join Clan Wars. There will be Clans for all playstyles, whether you want to grind to be the best or “casually play throughout the week and just want to help each other earn rewards.”

How to play CoD Mobile Clan Wars

After you join a Clan in CoD Mobile, you’ll need to play in the Clan Wars mode to earn the various rewards and climb the leaderboards.

While there are a few ways you can progress in Clan Wars, the main way is to capture Clan Nodes. Divided into weekly mini-seasons, these are daily challenges with “unique objectives and modifiers,” and “Each node will be fought over by Clans for a set amount of time and depending on each Clan’s rank they will earn currency.”

Your Clan will be matched up with other Clans each week to give you more variety in who you’re playing against so that one team doesn’t constantly dominate the leaderboards. After it resets, Clans must register for these mini-seasons every week, and “the clan who captures the Node will earn bonus points.”

An example objective is to defeat opponents using a custom SMG with five attachments, and the more Clan members complete the objective, the more Node points you’ll earn. The more Nodes your Clan can earn, the higher up the leaderboard you’ll be, and the sweeter the reward.

For your Clan placing well throughout the first season, you can earn various exciting cosmetic rewards.

As you play Clan Wars, you’ll start to earn clan currency to purchase different rewards. Or, you can earn these items “Through weekly rewards, based on both clan performance and your individual performance” and “Climbing the Clan Leaderboards.”

CoD Mobile confirmed that they’d implemented rewards this way to make sure that even if your clan isn’t pulling their weight, you’ll be rewarded for your individual efforts.

Here’s the full list of Clan Wars rewards:

  • Ronin – Hagakure
  • QXR – Rebirth
  • Backpack – Ronin

  • Helmet – Ronin
  • RUS-79U – Brushed Chrome

Call of Duty: Mobile has become immensely popular since its release, and for those who want an advantage over their opponents, using a controller is key. Not every controller is supported, but we’ve got everything you need to know, including the best settings for your gamepad for CoD: Mobile.

It may seem like an odd prospect to play Call of Duty’s leading handheld game with a fully-fledged gaming controller, but the fact is that CoD: Mobile is an essential game for any fans of the series. It takes lots of aspects from previous CoD titles and blends them into one game.

It’s not just a condensed version of the current games like Black Ops Cold War and Warzone, but in many ways, it’s a more complete offering. So it makes sense that people want to capture that authentic Call of Duty experience by using a controller on a smartphone or tablet.

With CoD: Mobile Season 8 kicking off, introducing the M13 and R9-0 weapons along with the Blackout map, there’s never been a better time to use a controller and give yourself an advantage over your opponents.

Best CoD: Mobile controller settings

Now you’ve connected your controller to CoD: Mobile, you’ll want to make sure you’re using the best settings. Unfortunately, there’s no way to match your settings with Warzone or Cold War’s, but there are plenty of settings you can tinker with to play CoD: Mobile at your best.

By going to the ‘Key Description’ tab, you can see all of the controls for CoD: Mobile’s different game modes, but you can customize them further.

CoD Mobile controller settings screen

Settings

  • Enable Controller Support: On
  • X-axis FLIP: Default
  • Y-axis FLIP: Default
  • Flip Triggers with Bumpers: Default
  • Tap ADS: Hold
  • Auto-Sprint: Off
  • Sprint Function: Push Left Joystick Forward

Multiplayer & Battle Royale Sensitivity

CoD: Mobile allows you to have separate sensitivity settings for multiplayer and battle royale, but we’d recommend keeping them consistent across the two.

  • Horizontal Sensitivity: 145
  • Vertical Sensitivity: 145
  • ADS & Non-Scope Horizontal Sensitivity: 100
  • ADS & Non-Scope Vertical Sensitivity: 100
  • Scope Horizontal Sensitivity: 95
  • Scope Vertical Sensitivity: 95
  • Sniper ADS Horizontal Sensitivity: 50
  • Sniper ADS Vertical Sensitivity: 54

Everyone will require different settings depending on the size of their screen and personal preferences, but these are a great place to start. Take these settings as a baseline, then keep adjusting them until you’re comfortable.

Which controllers are supported in CoD: Mobile

Unfortunately, not every controller is supported by CoD: Mobile, with only the Sony PlayStation Dualshock 4 and Xbox One controllers at the moment. It’s likely that the PS5 and Xbox Series X controllers will be added to this list in the future.

It is possible to use other Bluetooth controllers, but because they aren’t officially supported, they may run into functionality issues at some point in the future.

Does using a controller in CoD: Mobile get you banned?

Don’t worry, using a controller in CoD: Mobile definitely won’t get you banned! Gamepads are completely supported by the developer, but be warned, you will be placed in lobbies with players using the same input. This means games might be harder, and probably increase matchmaking time.


Using a controller is a sure-fire way to improve your gameplay on CoD: Mobile, no matter if you use Android or iOS. Now that you have the best controller settings, make sure your inventory is up to scratch with our best CoD: Mobile Season 8 guns.

Best M13 loadout for CoD: Mobile Season 8

Here are the best attachments and Perks you can use to create the best M13 loadout in Call of Duty: Mobile Season 8.

M13 in CoD Mobile

The M13 Assault Rifle from Modern Warfare is on its way to Call of Duty: Mobile, so here are the right attachments and perks to create the best M13 loadout when it arrives in Season 8.

Season 8 brought plenty of fun new content to Call of Duty: Mobile, including the original Blackout map from Black Ops 4 and the R9-0 shotgun among other notable additions.

The M13 Assault Rifle from Modern Warfare will soon be a part of CoD: Mobile. This gun boasts an extremely high fire rate along with a strong headshot multiplier, and you’ll be able to use it to dish out some serious pain.

Here’s the best M13 loadout for CoD: Mobile Season 8.

Best CoD: Mobile M13 loadout attachments

CoD: Mobile M13 loadout attachments
  • Barrel: RTC Heavy Long Barrel
  • Stock: No Stock
  • Laser: OWC Laser Tactical
  • Rear Grip: Granulated Grip Tape
  • Ammunition: .300 RTC 30 Round Reload

We’re starting off this CoD: Mobile loadout with the RTC Heavy Long Barrel to boost the weapon’s ADS bullet spread, damage range, and recoil control. This will come at a slight cost to movement speed.

We went with No Stock for this loadout to make up for the lost movement speed. This attachment will have the added benefit of providing a buff to the weapon’s ADS time.

M13

The previous attachment will have the adverse effect of causing an ADS bullet spread dropoff, so we’ll make up for that with the Granulated Grip Tape Rear Grip attachment.

You’ll need to make every shot count, and you can ensure that you can improve your targeting by equipping the OWC Laser Tactical. This attachment also provides buffs to ADS time and ADS bullet spread.

Finally, we’ll cap off this loadout with the .300 RTC 30 Round Reload attachment which will let you hit distant targets with more power by boosting the damage range of the weapon.

Best Perks to run with the M13 in CoD: Mobile

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

You’ll need to make up for lost health during combat, so we recommend equipping the Fast Recover perk. This will ensure that your health instantly regenerates after scoring every kill. 

Next, you’ll want to make sure that you have plenty of ammo left to dish out pain to your foes. The Vulture perk is a great choice since it will allow you to resupply ammo right away.

Finally, you should go with Dead Silence to almost completely muffle your footsteps, letting you take your foes by surprise.

How to unlock the M13 in CoD: Mobile

This weapon didn’t become available right when Season 8 went live. If you want to unlock the M13 in CoD: Mobile then you will have to complete a seasonal challenge which will become available later on in Season 8.

We’ll check for when the challenge becomes available and will update this article with the information.

Best alternatives to CoD: Mobile’s M13

If you want a good alternative to the M13 Assault Rifle, then we recommend trying out the Man-O-War. Its very-high DPS, manageable recoil, and understated accuracy make it the best weapon in the CoD: Mobile.

The DR-H is another great pick since it has a superb fire rate for an Assault Rifle and packs an incredible punch. So there are some great alternatives to the M13 available in CoD: Mobile.

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.

CoD: Mobile best guns

10. MSMC

msmc cod mobile

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

as val in cod mobile season 2

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

mx-9 in cod mobile

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

hvk-30 in cod mobile season 2

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

qq9 in cod mobile season 2

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

dl q33 sniper rifle in cod mobile season 2

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!
