Best LMGs in Call of Duty: Mobile

call of duty: mobile is a free-to-play first-person shooter game developed by TiMi Studio Group and published by Activision for Android and iOS and released on October 1, 2019. Initially released in the US, the game was later published in other regions by Garena, Tencent Games, VNG Games and TiMi Studio Group.

The game was so highly anticipated and successful upon its release that it became one of the biggest mobile game launches in history. This fact is corroborated by its massive sales record, generating over $480 million in revenue with a total of 270 million downloads worldwide, all in the span of one year.

types of weapons

A recurring feature in all Obligations games is the massive selection of weapons that players can use to defeat their opponents. The weapons in each game are so varied that they suit all kinds of play styles. Each weapon falls into one of five categories:

  • assault rifles
  • light machine guns
  • shotguns
  • sniper rifles
  • machine guns

In this article, we’ll highlight the category of Light Machine Guns (LMGs) and which ones are worth using in today’s meta. We’ve narrowed the list down to the top five best LMGs in cod: mobileall of which are powerful in their own right, but some of them just outclass the others.

  • Damage: 25
  • Accuracy: 46
  • Rate of fire: 75
  • Range: 45

The Chopper LMG comes in last on this list. While it’s no slouch in the LMG department, it’s not quite up there with the best weapons in this category. This weapon’s damage is the lowest of the five, though its high rate of fire generally makes up for it. The low accuracy stat is also a cause for concern, but the weapon’s low recoil makes up for that.

Where the Chopper LMG shines is in its versatility. The weapon can be adapted to any type of loadout with a host of varied attachments, either enhancing its strengths or covering its weaknesses. So far one of the best loadouts to use with the Chopper is:

  • Ammunition: 120-round reload
  • Barrel: Infantry Chopper
  • Laser: OWC Laser – Tactical
  • Stock: dotted grip tape
  • Underbarrel: Strike Foregrip

This loadout increases his damage by nearly 50 percent while stabilizing his accuracy issues. The only place it suffers here is its low range, but as an LMG, going into close to mid range is generally preferred.

4) Hades

  • Damage: 29
  • Accuracy: 57
  • Rate of fire: 65
  • Range: 53

Hades is a sleeper pick in the LMG section and its potential is slowly being realized. Introduced in Season 7, this LMG was popular when it was first released, but was slowly forgotten with all of the more popular weapons in the metagame. When it was first released, it sported one of the fastest fire rates of any weapon, though it has some competition now.

The only big problem with this weapon is the fact that it is typically a larger weapon compared to the other LMG weapons on this list. Hades loadouts are quite varied, but there are a few loadout types that have a better performance history than the rest. One of our favorite equipment is:

  • Ammunition: 84 rounds Hybrid Mag
  • Barrel: Rapid Fire Barrel
  • Laser: aim assist laser
  • Stock: Nimble Stock
  • Underbarrel: Crossbar

This specific charge improves Hades’ rate of fire by making it fire even faster than normal. The charge also increases your damage per hit, which is further amplified by the increased rate of fire.

3) M4LMG

  • Damage: 32
  • Accuracy: 61
  • Rate of Fire: 63
  • Range: 58

The M4LMG is the LMG with the highest current damage in the game. Although it may not have the fastest rate of fire, its balanced accuracy and good range make up for it. These stats are neither the highest nor the lowest of the LMGs, making the M4LMG the most balanced LMG in cod: mobile.

The only real drawback to the M4LMG is probably its high recoil rate, although that can be reduced with the help of the right attachments. Another thing to remember is that the M4LMG is a fairly heavy LMG, which makes any kind of movement quite tricky if players don’t have a custom version with the light weight advantage on hand. Fortunately, this weapon can also be acquired via airdrops.

The best loadout for the M4LMG looks something like this:

  • Laser: OWC Laser – Tactical
  • Muzzle: monolithic suppressor
  • Rear Grip: Grainy Grip Tape
  • Stocks: RTC Constant Stock
  • Underbarrel: Tactical Foregrip A

This loadout specifically addresses the weight issues of the weapon by making it lighter and therefore increasing its mobility. Its accuracy is slightly reduced, which is fine because the M4LMG has good accuracy to begin with. His range is pretty much the same, with all these stat changes that make him better overall.

2) RPD

  • Damage: 31
  • Accuracy: 61
  • Rate of fire: 66
  • Range: 60

The RPD is the only LMG with an unmatched rate of fire that does not require any additional equipment or accessories. The RPD was also the first LMG introduced in cod: mobile in the first season. Since then, his stats have kept him relevant over the years, even if his abilities and stats have remained largely unchanged.

RPD ammo is probably one of the best things about the RPD because it is so commonly found on most maps, making it possible to maintain a fast rate of fire. Your backlink can be a bit of a problem, but that can be solved by using specific attachments.

  • Ammo: 200 round belt
  • Barrel: OWC compact barrel
  • Laser: OWC Laser – Tactical
  • Rear grip: dotted grip tape
  • Stocks: RTC Constant Stock

This design increases the damage of the RPD and improves its recoil. It also increases mobility, making it much easier to dash around while dealing heavy damage.

1) Holger 26

  • Damage: 31
  • Accuracy: 53
  • Rate of fire: 71
  • Range: 60

Possibly the top choice for first place, the Holger 26 has held the top spot for best LMG since its inception. It has also been the majority of cod: mobile Players’ top choice for an LMG due to its effectiveness in a firefight.

If that wasn’t enough, the weapon stats speak for themselves. The Holger 26 is light, fast, and does high damage with a high rate of fire. Some might argue that the lower accuracy rate might somewhat offset its advantages in high-tier play, but accuracy stats don’t mean as much when it comes to LMGs and their high rate of fire.

  • Laser: OWC Laser – Tactical
  • Optics: Classic Red Dot Sight
  • Rear Grip: Grainy Grip Tape
  • Stock: YKM Combat Stock
  • Underbarrel: Strike Foregrip

This design brings out the best in the Holger 26, increasing its damage and rate of fire even more than its standard version, while also reducing its high recoil rate. With most players unanimously agreeing with the Holger 26’s capabilities, it is firmly established as the highest performing LMG in cod: mobile.
