Whether you’re looking to dominate close-range fights or are trying to complete weapon challenges, learning to hip-fire effectively is an extremely useful skill in Call of Duty: Mobile. Here’s how to hip-fire in CoD: Mobile and some tips and tricks to make you more accurate.

Hip-firing is an extremely effective tool in a Call of Duty: Mobile player’s arsenal, whether to dominate on small maps or to complete various camo challenges for weapons.

There are certain settings you need to apply to hip-fire in CoD: Mobile, and then you need the best attachments to be as accurate as possible.

We’ve got everything you need, including some tips and tricks to make hip-firing as effective as possible.

How to hip-fire in CoD: Mobile

Call of Duty mobile hip fire settings

To hip-fire in Call of Duty: Mobile, you first need to use the Advanced control scheme. This will give you the option to add a hip fire button to your screen, which is necessary to hip-fire in CoD: Mobile Season 6 and beyond.

To add the hip button in CoD Mobile:

  1. Launch Call of Duty: Mobile on your device
  2. Open Settings
  3. Select the ‘Controls’ tab
  4. Pick the mode you wish to change, i.e MP, BR, or Zombies
  5. Select ‘Advanced Mode’
  6. Click the ‘Hip Fire’ box
  7. Your primary firing button will now default to hip fire, with the smaller button being used for ADS fire

Best hip-fire attachments in CoD: Mobile

If you’re creating a hip-fire loadout, you want weapons that are both fast and have hip-fire accuracy. The perfect attachment to use is a Laser, as it improves both accuracy and sprint to fire time.

Taking the RUS-79U as an example, here are the best attachments for hip-firing in CoD: Mobile:

  • Muzzle: MIP Light Flash Guard
  • Barrel: OWC Marksman
  • Perk: Wild Hip Fire
  • Laser: MIP Laser 5mW
  • Ammunition: 50 Round Extended Mag

For this hip-fire loadout, we’ve gone for the MIP Light Flash Guard as it reduces hip fire bullet spread by 7.8%. Then, the OWC Marksman barrel helps increase its range and recoil control, which is vital to staying on target.

Next, the Wild Hip-Fire Perk and MIP Laser 5mW vastly increase hip-fire accuracy. The Perk increases jumping and sliding hip-fire accuracy, so you can stay mobile and accurate. Then, the Laser increases hip-fire accuracy by 17% and reduces the sprint to fire delay by 25%.

And lastly, the 50 Round Extended Mag gives you much more shots per magazine, and you don’t need to worry about the ADS speed delay.

CoD: Mobile hip-fire tips and tricks

Shoot House CoD Mobile Season 2

Now you’ve got hip-fire selected and the best loadout, there are things you can do to improve your chances of landing hip fire eliminations.

Play small maps

The first is to only play on small maps such as Shipment or Shoot House, as much of the combat will be close-range, where hip-firing shines.

Or, if you’re on a larger map, stick to the indoors and only try to take fights up close.

Stay mobile

The other thing you should do to improve your hip fire chances is strafe-shooting and staying mobile. If you stand still, it’ll be extremely easy for enemies to hit you. But, if you strafe side to side as you shoot, while they struggle to track you, you’ll be staying completely accurate with hip-fire.

Are there bots in CoD: Mobile? How to practice with AI

Most online games of CoD: Mobile feature tons of real-life players, but can they can also feature bots as well?

cod mobile characters and bots

Ever wondered if every player you play online with in CoD: Mobile is real? Well, we have all the details on whether or not bots exist in multiplayer, and also find out how you can practice against them too.

There is a long-standing belief that in the first few ranks of CoD: Mobile you’ll face mostly, if not all, bots in your online games. Players will find that if they can adjust to the controls quickly, then they can rack up some serious kills from the get-go.

However, this isn’t necessarily because you’re an expert marksman in CoD: Mobile, but more so due to the presence of simulated players. So let’s discuss the likelihood of bots in CoD: Mobile, and how to practice against them too.

Do you play against bots in CoD: Mobile?

Even though Activision or devs TiMi Studio Group haven’t come out and directly addressed it, we’re 99.99% sure that bots do exist in online games of CoD: Mobile.

Playing Call of Duty on a smaller, handheld device requires a lot more precision due to its slightly fiddly nature. So it’s only natural that it might take some time to adjust, or you just might be a new player in general that is getting to grips with Call of Duty.

So until you reach about Level 10 in CoD: Mobile, you’ll find that in your first few games that you’re almost godlike – finishing with insane K/D ratios. This is because you’re playing nothing but bots. You can still get bots in later levels too if the lobby is struggling to fill up for whatever reason.

It’s also quite easy to tell the difference between a bot and a real player as well. Yes, there will inevitably be newcomers that struggle with CoD: Mobile, but they still act naturally.

Whereas bots will repeatedly duck and dodge in cover in a completely robotic way following the same scripted path. Additionally, they also stand out in the open not even attempting to take cover and move into completely bizarre positions.

YouTube user ExxotikGaming has created an incredibly useful video that can assist you in identifying bots in a game.

You can check it out below.

CoD: Mobile how to practice against the A.I

If you’re eager to try out some new weapons or test your aim in CoD: Mobile so that you can perform better in actual matches, then you might want to practice.

This is very easy and straightforward to do:

  1. Load up CoD: Mobile
  2. At the main menu, press on the ‘Multiplayer’ option
  3. Make your way down through the options until you get to the ‘Practice’ choice
  4. Go across to ‘Practice vs. AI’
  5. Select the game mode and play a 5v5 match

The game will inform you that you will earn XP at a “90% reduction,” but that’s not why you’re in practice anyway.


So if you’re new to the game, or encounter a strange-looking and behaving enemy, then consider the possibility that they are indeed a bot.
