R9-0 in CoD: Mobile

The R9-0 shotgun is one of the latest additions to CoD: Mobile, and we’ve got the best attachments, loadout, and perks to use as you dominate Season 8.

CoD: Mobile Season 8 brought plenty of new content for fans of the handheld FPS title, including the original Blackout battle royale map and the new M13 assault rifle.

For those who like to get up close when engaging in gunfights, the game’s developers have added the R9-0 shotgun as seen in Warzone. This high-ammo shotgun can fire two shots before needed pumped, and deals major damage.

A monster in close quarters, here is the best CoD: Mobile Season 8 R9-0 loadout.

Best CoD: Mobile R9-0 loadout attachments

R9-0 stats in CoD Mobile
  • Muzzle: Choke
  • Barrel: MIP Extended Light Barrel
  • Laser: OWC Laser – Tactical
  • Smoothbore: MFT Urban Smoothbore
  • Rear Grip: Granulated Grip Tape

Shotguns are always best at short distances, so rather than try to make it effective at long range, which will be almost impossible anyway, we’ve focused on maximizing its strengths.

The OWC Laser – Tactical gives a strong buff to ADS time and bullet spread, while the Granulated Grip Tape also improves your spread too. Add in the Choke Muzzle, and your bullet spread when aiming down sights or hip firing is upgraded, while your damage range is boosted by 15%.

The MFT Urban Smoothbore will improve your ADS and bolt times, allowing you to get shots off quicker, while the MIP Extended Light Barrel improves damage range by another 20%.

Best Perks to use with R9-0 in CoD: Mobile

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

Using a shotgun in CoD: Mobile means you’ll need to get close to opponents, so Fast Recover is perfect to help you regen health quicker as you charge towards enemies in search of kills.

Vulture will keep you supplied in shotgun shells, while Dead Silence will help you move quietly as you sneak up on opponents and blast them away with your R9-0.

How to unlock R9-0 in CoD: Mobile

Unlocking the R9-0 in CoD: Mobile is pretty straightforward. The shotgun is available as a common item at Tier 21 of the Season 8 Battle Pass.

Players who purchase the premium Battle Pass will be able to unlock an epic blueprint for the weapon.

Best CoD: Mobile R9-0 alternatives

The R9-0 shotgun is definitely one of the best in its class based on early gameplay, but if it’s not for you, the KRM-262, Shorty, and Striker are all good options to use instead.

If you’re still unsure, check out our best CoD: Mobile Season 8 guns, which ranks every weapon in the game.

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.

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.
