Lucas Riggs is another Vanguard operator coming to CoD: Mobile, and you can redeem him for free for a limited time.

Each Operator in CoD has its own unique appearance, backstory, and dialogue. It’s through these characters that Activision brings the world of Call of Duty to life.

It’s not too often that players get brand new Operators. Players can buy different skins for their operators, but this only changes their physical appearance. Luckily, with the release of CoD: Vanguard, players are getting 12 new Operators.

It’s an even rarer occurrence when new Operators come to CoD: Mobile. However, a new Operator from Vanguard is making their way to CoD: Mobile, and you can claim them for free.

Lucas Riggs is an Australian S.O.T.F. 001 member and explosives expert. He is one of the 12 playable Operators introduced in CoD: Vanguard. And like Arthur Kingsley before him, Lucas Riggs is available in CoD: Mobile.

However, Riggs is only available for a limited time. Players can unlock Riggs in CoD: Mobile starting on November 5 alongside the launch of Vanguard. You will have until December 16 at 11:59 PM UTC to redeem him.

Below are the steps you will follow to unlock Lucas Riggs:

  • Launch CoD: Mobile at any point between November 5 and December 16
  • Check the in-game event page — it will be clearly visible upon launch — to claim Lucas Riggs.

If he is not immediately available in-game after redeeming the offer, wait at least 24 hours before contacting Activision Support

Unlocking Lucas Riggs is a simple as logging in to CoD: Mobile and clicking a few boxes. Sadly, this doesn’t unlock Riggs for Warzone despite the ability to link your mobile and Activision accounts.

CoD: Mobile players beg for major nerfs to overpowered Persistence Perk

The Persistence Perk has been left untouched in CoD: Mobile for a long time and players are insistent that it needs to be nerfed.

Published

It seems that the Persistence Perk is starting to get to some players in CoD: Mobile and think that the Killstreak-saving Perk needs to be addressed and nerfed.

As we’ve come to expect with every new season of CoD: Mobile, Season 10 has once again delivered new guns, new maps, and even more hours of frantic Call of Duty combat for handheld users.

But whilst players are having fun making use of the new goodies on offer, many continue to be frustrated by the devs apparent dismissal of the Persistence Perk.

The equippable ability allows players to keep their Scorestreak progress intact on death, at the cost of each Scorestreak cost being doubled. But this stays this way for the whole game, almost guaranteeing some of the top Scorestreaks.

Persistence does prevent players from earning more than one of each Scorestreak in a game though, so it does have some drawbacks.

Despite this, multiple posts on the CoD: Mobile subreddit have attacked the Persistence Perk and are keen for it to be reworked. One user posted: “I have been playing this game since Season 1 and have never used Persistence, but today, I was watching Ferg’s stream and saw the absolute wrath of Persistence, and so I equipped it. This is my first 2 games with Persistence.”

They attached a couple of screenshots to the post, each showing the player dominating each game and comfortably finishing as MVP in both games.

One of the top comments suggests that perhaps it’s not Persistence that is causing all the issues, but more the Streaks themselves.

“It’s not Persistence that is the problem, it is stuff like Clusters, Napalms, and Orbital Lasers that are. Ferg is p*ssed with Persistence because the Persistence users, more often than not, do not get enough points for a VTOL, so they spam stuff like Air Strikes, Napalms, Orbital Lasers, etc,” they said.

This point seemed to be backed up by another Reddit thread for the game titled: “I still don’t have an answer. How to counter Persistence Airstrikes?”

The insinuation is that Airstrikes are regularly called in every game, with a large portion of them coming as a result of the Persistence Perk. As such, it leaves players to be peppered by these high-powered Scorestreaks regularly, every match.

A final post contained a poll with three different potential options on how to deal with the Perk, with just over 28% of people asking for a nerf, just under 25% of people asking for a buff, and just under 47% asking for it to be reworked.

It’s clear and obvious that not everyone is happy with the Persistence Perk, but with the obscene amount of content that the devs are juggling with in the game, it’s a tough call as to whether or not they’ll change the Perk.

Best SVD loadout for CoD: Mobile Season 10

Here are the best attachments and Perks to dominate with the SVD Dragunov Sniper Rifle in CoD: Mobile Season 10.

Published

CoD Mobile SVD Dragunov

The classic SVD Draganov Sniper Rifle has arrived in CoD: Mobile Season 10, so we’ve got the attachments and Perks to create the best SVD loadout.

Call of Duty: Mobile Season 10 is officially here, bringing even more content from Modern Warfare (2019). The classic Vacant map arrived, as well as the SVD Dragunov Sniper Rifle, which long-term CoD fans will be more than familiar with.

The SVD is a quick and powerful semi-automatic Sniper Rifle, and we have the best loadout attachments and Perks for you to maximize its potential.

Best CoD: Mobile SVD loadout attachments

SVD Druganov in call of duty mobile
  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: RTC 510mm Light
  • Stock: RTC Steady Stock
  • Laser: OWC Laser – Tactical
  • Ammunition: 15 Round Extended Mag

We’re starting the best CoD: Mobile SVD loadout with the classic Monolithic Suppressor which will increase the damage range. The SVD excels at these longer ranges, so you want an attachment that complements that.

Next, we’re using the RTC 510mm Light barrel to increase your mobility, giving a huge boost to aim down sight (ADS) speed, movement speed, and ADS movement speed. Then to further speed up the SVD, we’re using the OWC Laser – Tactical.

You also want the SVD to be accurate, which is where the RTC Steady Stock comes into play. This vastly improves its handling, reducing recoil, crosshair drift, flinch, and allows your lungs to refresh faster after steadying the scope.

And finally, to make sure you can take out as many targets as possible without reloading, we recommend the 15 Round Extended Mag.

Best Perks to use with CoD: Mobile SVD

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

Fast Recover is an excellent Perk for players who want to run around the map, as your health will quickly regenerate after each fight.

Next, Toughness is the perfect Perk for snipers as it reduces Flinch by 60%, allowing you to stay accurate while trade blows. And Dead Silence will keep you stealthy, as enemy players won’t be able to hear your footsteps.

How to unlock SVD in CoD: Mobile

CoD Mobile Season 10 operators

The SVD is available as part of the free Season 10 Battle Pass, and you need to hit Tier 21 to unlock it.

Just prioritize racking up Scorestreaks and playing the objective, and you’ll unlock it in no time.

Best alternatives to the SVD in CoD: Mobile

If you haven’t unlocked the SVD or it isn’t your cup of tea, the Rytec AMR is another semi-automatic Sniper Rifle that can take down targets in quick succession. And you can’t go wrong with the NA-45, either.

SVD Dragunov in Call of Duty Mobile Season 10

The SVD Dragunov Sniper Rifle makes its way to Call of Duty: Mobile in Season 10, Shadows Return, so here’s how to unlock it in the mobile shooter.

The Russian SVD Dragunov Sniper Rifle is a classic FPS weapon, appearing in several Call of Duty games over the years. Although rarely the most powerful Sniper Rifle, its low recoil and semi-automatic fire rate make it an effective choice in the right hands.

The full patch notes for CoD: Mobile Season 10 have been released, revealing that the SVD will arrive alongside Vacant, the Orbital Laser Scorestreak, and more.

Here’s how to unlock the SVD Sniper Rifle in CoD: Mobile Season 10.

CoD Mobile Season 10 SVD stats

All players need to do to unlock the SVD in CoD: Mobile is reach Tier 21 in the free Season 10 Battle Pass, which goes live on November 17 at 4 PM PT / 7 PM ET / 12 AM GMT (November 18).

Unlocking the SVD shouldn’t take too long but use the best settings and prioritize earning score, and you’ll reach Tier 21 much quicker and easier. And those who purchase the Premium Battle Pass will also earn the Iron Blackwood Blueprint for the SVD, fitted with attachments and a unique skin.

You’ll also be able to unlock the SVD through a challenge after Season 10 ends, so don’t worry if you miss out this time.

CoD Mobile’s devs describe the SVD as a “semi-automatic sniper rifle that is highly mobile,” with “medium-to-high firing power, dealing slightly lower damage.” But they confirmed that an “opponent can be easily eliminated if shot in the upper chest area,” so this will likely be a powerful choice for both multiplayer and battle royale.
