CoD Mobile Season 6 To the Skies

Call of Duty Mobile Season 6: To the Skies brought a ton of new content, and here’s everything we know about it, including the full patch notes, new Favela map, and Battle Pass.

CoD Mobile developers Solid State Studios bring brand-new content through seasonal updates, with Season 5, titled Tropical Vision giving players a brand-new map, weapons, and other fun additions to enjoy.

Now, the Season 6 update has finally arrived, and the new update includes a classic Call of Duty map, as well as a Battle Pass with 50 tiers to progress through. We’ll go over everything in CoD Mobile Season 6.

CoD Mobile Jackal and Anti Air Gun Season 6

CoD Mobile Season 6 Favela map

Season 5’s Tropical Vision update brought the Apocalypse map that first appeared in Black Ops Cold War, and the devs confirmed in a Reddit thread that we would see the arrival of a map from a CoD title older than Black Ops 4 “in the next couple of seasons.”

On June 18, the developers officially confirmed that Favela from 2009’s Modern Warfare 2 is set to arrive in Season 6. However, the CoD Mobile version is actually an iteration of Favela from Call of Duty: Ghosts.

This multi-level map is set in the slums of Rio de Janeiro and features multiple two-story buildings along with rooftops that you can climb onto. While this map is large, close encounters are frequent, ensuring fast-paced action.

CoD Mobile Season 6 Jackal Fighter Jet

On June 21, the developers tweeted an image that showed part of an aerial vehicle, confirming the addition of the Jackal Fighter Jet which was previously rumored to arrive in CoD Mobile Season 5.

These destructive vehicles are exclusively available in the game’s battle royale, and are equipped with missiles, decoys, and a Gatling Gun. “While flying, your HUD will display other jets, whether enemy-controlled or friendly controlled or non-manned.”

There is also JACKAL: Fueled Up Themed Event in CoD Mobile Season 6 that allows players to earn rewards by securing fuels for the Roboticist Operator.

CoD Mobile Season 6 new weapons

The Oden Assault Rifle appeared in the test build and was added during Season 5, and that server also featured another weapon that has finally made its CoD Mobile debut in the Season 6 update.

The KSP 45 from Black Ops Cold War was found in the test server, and this three-shot burst SMG is available as the Tier 21 reward in the Season 6 Battle Pass. It boasts low recoil and is capable of dishing out a ton of pain to its targets at medium range.

In addition, the L-CAR 9 secondary pistol is another weapon found in the expired test server that is now available in CoD Mobile Season 6. Players can obtain this weapon by completing Seasonal Challenges.

This automatic pistol appeared in Black Ops III and boasts a high-capacity magazine as well as high burst damage that makes it ideal for close-range combat. While it has lower mobility compared with other pistols, it can be used to dish out a ton of pain.

CoD Mobile Season 6 Battle Pass rewards

New seasons of CoD Mobile always bring a new Battle Pass that you can progress through in order to unlock in-game rewards including new guns, Operator skins, and other cosmetic items.

Season 6 is no different, as it features a 50-Tier Battle Pass filled with free and premium rewards. These include the KSP 45, new Operator skins for Wraith and Reyes, as well as Blueprints for weapons like the JAK-12 and Man-O-War.

CoD Mobile Season 6 To The Skies patch notes

The CoD Mobile developers listed in detail all the balance adjustments and other changes in the Season 6 To The Skies update patch notes.

Here are the CoD Mobile Season 6 patch notes:

Multiplayer

New Map

  • Favela

The fan-favorite map, Favela, has been officially added to the map pool! Fighters, watch out for the snipers coming at you from the rooftops when you engage in thrilling alley battles. Grab your medium-close range weapons and enjoy the game!

Mode Optimization

HP Mode Spawn Location Optimization

In the last release, we optimized the spawn location on some of the maps in HP Mode. However, a few logic and layout issues led to several unintended and unreasonable respawn situations (e.g., Slums and Miami Strike). After locating and fixing the problems on the corresponding maps, we have evaluated and diagnosed the remaining maps in HP Mode. We will continue to optimize the respawn experience in subsequent releases and hope our fighters to have a better combat experience in HP Mode.

Maps that received optimizations are as follows:

Slums, Miami Strike, Summit, Nuketown, Raid, Hackney Yard, Takeoff, and Standoff.

Ranked Match Update

We have increased the Rank XP for the MVP of the losing team in the MP Ranked Match, especially for players below the Legendary rank tier.

Battle Royale Update

New Vehicle – Jackal

  1. Refresh: A new limited-time fighter, the Jackal, is added to the Battle Royale! Players can track the fighter icon marked on the map to locate Jackals in the new airport runway areas. Each runway will spawn a fighter simultaneously, and each fighter will refresh on the runway when it is destroyed.
  2. Pilot: The left joystick can control the flight direction, while the right acceleration and deceleration buttons can control the flight speed. Please note that the Jackal will lose control when the flight speed is too slow. Please accelerate to regain control of the fighter.
  3. Weapons: Jackals can be equipped with cannons and missiles to target vehicles, which makes it an effective weapon on both the ground and air target attacks. Jackals can also be equipped with decoy bombs to remove the target lock of FHJ-18, hostile fighters, and anti-aircraft missiles. Last but not least, the Jackal is capable of detecting the location of enemies within a certain range, displaying the enemies as red dots on the map.

New Feature

Anti-Air Guns

· In Battle Royale, the Anti-Air Guns are deployed around the town! These Anti-Air Guns can be used to target and attack land vehicles and air units.

· Since each Anti-Air contains only four missiles, turrets with unused missiles will display a tracker indicator.

· Anti-Air will self-destruct in a short period of time after all its missiles are used.

Other Optimization

· Optimized the prompt UI of being down and collecting dog tags.

· Optimized the SFX of being down and collecting dog tags.

New Weapon

New Primary Weapon

KSP 45:Three-round burst submachine gun with low rate of fire, but high burst damage at medium/close range.

5 best guns in CoD Mobile

5. SKS – Best Marksman Rifle in CoD Mobile

sks in cod mobile

Somewhat of a ‘skill cannon,’ what makes the SKS so powerful is its ability to two-shot to the chest and one-shot to the head.

If you’re accurate enough, the SKS can be absolutely devastating. You’ll be able to fly around the map taking down enemies in only 200ms, and there aren’t many weapons can that can challenge that TTK.

4. DR-H 4

DR-H 4 in CoD Mobile

The DR-H was always a powerful weapon but received major buffs in CoD Mobile Season 6.

With its new and improved damage profile, the DR-H is now capable of consistently killing enemies in only three shots. This gives it a fantastic TTK, allowing it to challenge the game’s best Assault Rifles. 

The only thing holding it back against the Kilo 141 is its recoil, but if you land your shots, you’ll find it’s even better. 

3. MAC-10

MAC-10 in CoD Mobile

Black Ops Cold War’s MAC-10 is a fan favorite in Warzone, and quickly rose to the top of CoD Mobile when it arrived in Season 3 2022

The MAC-10 has almost everything you need in a CoD Mobile SMG where it absolutely melts at close-range with a great strafe speed to boot. It doesn’t have the same range potential as the CBR4, but there are few weapons that can challenge it at close-range. Bring the MAC-10 to any small map and you’ll be an unstoppable force.

2. Kilo 141 – Best Assault Rifle in CoD Mobile

Kilo 141 in CoD Mobile

The Kilo 141 is one of the most accurate weapons in Warzone and Modern Warfare, and it’s even more effective in CoD Mobile Season 6.

The Kilo’s power comes from its accuracy, where you can take on targets at any range with ease. It’s not the fastest killing weapon in CoD Mobile, but players of any skill level can be incredibly accurate with it, no matter the map or mode.

1. CBR4 – Best SMG in CoD: Mobile

cbr4 in cod mobile

If you’re looking for the best gun possible in CoD Mobile Season 6, you can’t go wrong with Season 11’s CBR4. This fast-firing SMG will tear through any enemy you come across, and it’s a favorite in competitive play.

It can be built almost any way you choose, but it’s best suited for smaller range maps such as Shoot House and Hijacked. It may see a nerf soon, so make sure to use it as much as possible in Season 6.


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 Vanguard and the best guns in Warzone too!

Best L-CAR 9 loadout for CoD Mobile Season 6

Black Ops 3’s L-CAR 9 pistol has arrived in CoD Mobile Season 6, so here’s everything you need to create the best L-CAR 9 loadout.

Published

on

CoD Mobile L-CAR 9 loadout

CoD Mobile Season 6: To the Skies is here, bringing the fan-favorite Favela map and new weapons to unlock and master. Black Ops 3’s powerful L-CAR 9 pistol is one of these new weapons, so here’s the best L-CAR 9 loadout and how to unlock it.

Call of Duty: Mobile has an absolutely massive arsenal of weapons, most of them coming from previous CoD games. More are added with each seasonal update, such as Modern Warfare’s Oden and Cold War’s MAC-10.

Even more have arrived in Season 6: To the Skies, with Cold War’s KSP 45 and Black Ops 3’s L-CAR 9. This fully-automatic pistol is already shaping up to be one of the best secondaries in the game, so here’s everything you need to create the best L-CAR 9 loadout in CoD Mobile, and how to unlock it in Season 6.

L-CAR 9 pistol in CoD Mobile

Best CoD Mobile L-CAR 9 loadout attachments

  • Barrel: OWC Ranger
  • Stock: Agile Stock
  • Laser: 5mW Combat Laser
  • Ammunition: Fast Extended Mag A
  • Rear Grip: Rustle Grip Tape

The L-CAR 9 isn’t a primary weapon you’ll be running around with constantly, but this CoD Mobile pocket SMG will simply melt enemies at close-range. We’ve built our L-CAR 9 loadout to perfectly complement your primary weapon.

First, we’re kicking off this L-CAR 9 loadout with the OWC Ranger barrel which improves its accuracy, recoil control, and range, making it much more versatile. Next, because you’ll be switching to the L-CAR in a pinch, the 5mW Combat Laser gives it excellent hip-fire accuracy, allowing you to get that quickdraw kill almost instantly.

While the Agile Stock will hurt your hip-fire accuracy slightly, it’s worth using for its incredible sprint-to-fire delay reduction, meaning you’re free to sprint around while carrying the L-CAR 9.

Because this pistol is fully automatic, you’ll want the Fast Extended Mag A to stop it from burning through ammo too quickly. And finally, just in case you need to aim down sight, it’s worth adding the Rustle Grip Tape for faster ADS speed.

CoD Mobile KSP 45 and L-CAR 9

Best CoD Mobile L-CAR 9 Perks

  • Red Perk: Fast Recover
  • Green Perk: Amped
  • Blue Perk: Hardline

Fast Recover is a fantastic Perk to use with any CoD Mobile class because you’ll start regenerating health immediately after getting a kill or capturing an objective.

Since you’ll want to get the most out of your L-CAR 9, Amped will allow you to quickly swap between weapons. And finally, Hardline is a great all-rounder because you’ll be earning Scorestreaks much faster.

CoD Mobile Fast Recover perk

How to unlock L-CAR 9 in CoD Mobile

While the KSP 45 is unlocked through the Season 6 Battle Pass, the L-CAR 9 is unlocked through the Too Close For Comfort challenges.

Here’s everything you need to do to unlock the L-CAR 9 in CoD Mobile:

  1. Play 5 MP Matches
  2. Fire 300 Rounds in MP Matches
  3. Use Operator Skills 10 times in MP Matches
  4. Use the Purifier Operator Skill 5 times in MP Matches
  5. Kill 5 Enemies with any Pistol in MP Matches

There are a couple more challenges to compete after unlocking the L-CAR 9, but you only need to do these first five to permanently unlock the weapon.

Best L-CAR 9 alternatives in CoD Mobile

There are plenty of powerful secondary weapons you could use instead of the L-CAR 9 in CoD Mobile, with the Renetti capable of one-bursting enemies. Or, you can use the .50 GS to one-shot headshot your foes.


Warzone Mobile is on the way as well, so you can check out the leaked gameplay that shows off new Modern Warfare 2 mechanics.

Best KSP 45 loadout for CoD Mobile Season 6

CoD Mobile Season 6 sees the KSP 45 from Black Ops Cold War arrive in the game, here’s our best loadout for the burst SMG.

Published

on

Best KSP 45 in CoD Mobile

Call of Duty: Mobile Season 6 arrived and it’s bringing the KSP 45 from Black Ops Cold War into the mix. Here’s how to make the most of the powerful burst SMG with our best KSP 45 loadout for CoD Mobile.

CoD Mobile loves to take classic weapons and maps from the mainline titles and allow players to enjoy them on the go, and the trend seems to be continuing once again.

As well as the beloved Favela map from Modern Warfare 2 coming to the mobile title, the KSP 45 SMG introduced in Black Ops Cold War has joined the growing roster of weapons in Season 6: To The Skies.

Before you head out there and try out the new toy, you’re going to need to know the optimal build. Here’s our best KSP 45 loadout for CoD Mobile Season 6.

KSP 45 in Black Ops Cold War

Best COD Mobile KSP 45 attachments

  • Barrel: 10.5″ Task Force Barrel
  • Stock: Light Weight Stock
  • Underbarrel: Striker Foregrip
  • Ammunition: Extended Mag A
  • Rear Grip: Rustle Grip Tape

Due to the fact that the KSP 45 is a burst fire SMG, the weapon has surprisingly little recoil, meaning we can focus our loadout on other areas like movement. We kick things off with the 10.5″ Task Force Barrel for a sizeable boost in both range and bullet speed, helping the KSP hold its own at longer distances.

Next, we’ve gone for the Light Weight Stock, Striker Foregrip, and Rustle Grip Tape. These offer buffs to movement speed, both while running and aiming, and ADS speed, allowing for a more aggressive style of play where you really get into enemies’ faces.

Finally, we chose Extended Mag A for an increase in ammo, so you don’t have to worry about running dry and reloading in a crucial gunfight.

CoD Mobile new weapons

Best Perks for CoD Mobile KSP 45 loadout

  • Red Perk: Lightweight
  • Green Perk: Vulture
  • Blue Perk: Dead Silence

Our KSP 45 loadout has revolved around movement, and we think it’s best to double down once again with Lightweight, letting you tear across the map and push the opposing team.

Even with its three-round burst, it’s easy to burn through ammo quickly which can lead to a quick death. By using Vulture, you can pick up more bullets after each kill, so you can rack up a lengthy killstreak without constantly checking your reserves.

Lastly, since this weapon thrives in close-quarters combat, we recommend Dead Silence to allow you to sneak up on enemies with silent movement.

CoD Mobile Season 6 To the Skies

How to unlock KSP 45 in CoD Mobile

The KSP 45 is unlocked by reaching Tier 21 of the CoD Mobile Season 6 Battle Pass, which also happens to be one of the free tiers. This means you can try out the Cold War SMG without having to splash any cash if you don’t want to.

If you haven’t reached Tier 21 by the time Season 6 draws to a close, don’t worry. When Season 7 kicks off you’ll still be to unlock the KSP 45 through an in-game challenge.

Best alternative to KSP 45 in CoD Mobile

The biggest drawback of the KSP 45 is the burst fire rate, which won’t suit everyone’s playstyle. If this is the case for you, then try the MAC-10 introduced back in Season 3.

While it’s far less accurate than the KSP 45, its ridiculous speed of fire makes it a beast at close-range.
