Perks have always been a staple of COD games and Call of Duty Mobile is no different. Our Perks Guide will give you a complete overview of all the Perks in Call of Duty for mobile, unlocking them, and detailing the best perks to increase your combat effectiveness.
Call of Duty Mobile Perks
For the uninitiated, Perks in Call of Duty games are abilities that provide players with a variety of effects. An example can be Sleight of Hand from the previous Call of Duty games that increases reload speed. Another one called Ghost prevents you from being detected by enemy UAV – a scorestreak that marks opposing players on the mini-map.
As you can tell, if chosen correctly, Perks can be a game-changer. To help you choose the best perks in Call of Duty Mobile and to unlock them in the first place, we’ve got this COD Mobile Perks Guide. But before we start, there are some things to note:
- Perks are only available in COD Mobile Multiplayer Mode
- Battle Royale doesn’t have any Perks
- Perks are divided into three categories: Red, Green, Blue
- A Call of Duty Mobile loadout can only have 3 Perks in total
- You need to be at least Level 12 to have one perk from each category.
With that out of the way, let’s talk about Red, Green, and Blue Perks in COD Mobile:
Red Perks in Call of Duty are the first set of perks that you’ll unlock. The first Red Perks you’ll unlock in Call of Duty Mobile unlocks at Level 4.
This perk unlocks at Level 4. With Fast Recover active, you’ll increase your health recovery rate by 35%.
You’ll unlock this Red Perk at Level 14. With Persistence active, your scorestreaks won’t reset upon you dying but the cost of earning these scorestreaks will double up.
This perk unlocks at Level 22. Lightweight is a perk from mainstream Call of Duty games. It increases your running speed by 10% and reduces fall damage.
Agile Red Perk unlocks at Level 30. With Agile equipped, you’ll be able to ADS (Aim Down Sights) and vault over objects 85% faster after running.
Another perk from mainstream Call of Duty games, Flak Jacket unlocks at Level 39. When equipped, you’ll take 35% less damage from explosions.
Unlocked at Level 45, Skulker increases your movement speed by 12% when walking or crouching.
The second set of COD Mobile Perks you’ll unlock are Green Perks. The first one of which you’ll unlock at Level 6. Here are all the Green Perks in Call of Duty for mobile devices:
Unlocked at Level 6, Vulture is referred to as Scavenger in mainstream Call of Duty games. With Vulture equipped, you’ll be able to pick up ammo from dead enemies.
You’ll unlock this Green Perk at Level 16. Toughness reduces flinching when being shot at by 60%. This allows you to fire back and have a chance to win more gunfights.
Unlocked at Level 24, Tracker lets you see enemy footprints for 4 seconds. One of the most powerful perks, it can help you protect your flanks and make plays.
You unlock Cold-Blooded at Level 32. When equipped, you’re not targeted by enemy scorestreaks like UAV, Airstrikes, etc.
This perk unlocks at Level 41 and provides you immunity against Counter UAV, EMP Grenades, Land Mines, and enemies with Tracker perk active.
The final Green Perk unlocks at Level 47 and keeps you undetected from enemy UAVs.
The first Blue Perk in Call of Duty Mobile unlocks at Level 12. Perks belonging to Blue Perks category are the last perks you’ll unlock in the game.
Hardline increases the scorestreak points earned with kills by 25% and unlocks at Level 12.
This perk in Call of Duty Mobile increases the explosives damage by 25%. It unlocks at Level 20 and can be countered by Flak Jacket.
Unlocked at Level 20, Dead Silence reduces the sound of your footsteps.
A niche perk that unlocks at Level 37, Engineer allows you to reveal enemy equipment, scorestreaks, re-roll Care Packages, and even booby-trap enemy Care Packages.
Unlocked at Level 43, Tactical Mask decreases the duration of Tactical Equipment such as Stun Grenades, Flashbangs, etc. by 40%.
The final perk that you can unlock in Call of Duty Mobile is Alert that unlocks at Level 51 and makes it easier for you to hear enemy footsteps.
Call of Duty Mobile Best Perks
Now that we’ve detailed all the perks in the game, it goes without saying that some perks are better than the others. In this section of the guide, we’ve detailed some of the best perks that you can use in Call of Duty Mobile:
- Fast Recover
- Dead Silence
From the Perk 1 category, try to go for Agile or Fast Recovery. If you’re someone like me who runs a lot and aims less, Agile will help you ADS a lot faster and keep on going with Fast Recover. However, if you like to keep your scorestreaks going, you can also try out Persistence.
From the Perk 2 category, I suggest going for Vulture (Scavenger). This should allow you to keep on going without worrying about running out of ammo – ever! However, this requires you to be good winning gunfights.
And lastly, from the Perk 3 category, we’d recommend either Dead Silence or Toughness. Dead Silence will allow you to be stealthy as a ninja and score a whole lot of kills. On the other hand, you can also use Toughness if you’re having a hard time winning one-on-one gunfights.
