The leaks and rumors have turned out to be true! The developer of call of duty mobile has officially confirmed that a new weapon category is finally being added in Call of Duty Mobile. The new weapon type is ‘Marksman rifle,’ and the very first weapon which will be added to the game under this category is ‘Kilo Bolt Action Marksman Rifle.’
New Weapon Category in COD Mobile Season 9
Yes, Call of Duty Mobile Season 9 update will bring one more type of weapon category in the game. Currently, only five weapon types are available, namely – Assault Rifle, Sniper Rifle, LMG, SMG, and Shotgun. But with this upcoming update, a new weapon category ‘Marksman Rifle‘ will be added as well.
New Weapon – Kilo Bolt-Action Marksman Rifle
It is actually Kar98k, which has already been featured in previous Call of Duty games on PC. Kar98K is also a very popular bolt-action sniper rifle in PUBG Mobile. However, in Call of Duty Mobile, the gun has been renamed to ‘Kilo Bolt-Action.’ The reason for this has not been officially announced, but most probably, it has been done to avoid copyright issues.
It is not the first time that Call of Duty Mobile has taken a gun from previous COD games and renamed it before launching it in the COD Mobile. MP5 was also released as QQ9 in the last season of the game.
Is Kilo Bolt-Action Rifle any good?
Since the gun has not been released yet, neither it was available in the test server of COD Mobile; therefore, we did not get a chance to try it ourselves. So we cannot promise anything. But the developers recently published a video announcing the gun, alongside some gameplay clips. So we can go ahead and make some guesses.
Predicted Features of Kilo Bolt-Action Marksman Rifle:
- Good in Medium Rage
- Ability to 1-shot kill (upper body only)
- High Mobility
- Quick ADS Speed
- Quick Reloading Speed
- Quick Rate of Fire
- More Customization Options
When will Kilo Bolt-Action Marksman Rifle Release?
Kilo Bolt-Action Rifle is scheduled to release in Call of Duty Mobile Season 9, which will arrive on 15 August 2020.
How To Get Kilo Bolt-Action Rifle?
Players will be able to get Kilo Bolt-Action Rifle from COD Mobile Season 9 Battle Pass. The gun will be available as a reward on the 50th tier of Battle Pass.
The gun may also arrive for free-to-play players via In-Game missions, where the players will have to grind and complete tasks to get it for free.
To conclude, Kilo Bolt-Action Marksman Rifle will be one of the best weapons in COD Mobile Season 9. But if you are an SMG or AR players, it won’t suit your playstyle. It is basically a weapon for Sniper Players who like Quick-Scoping.
Any player who has a fantastic aim with sniper-like Locus, and DLQ 333 will break the game with this new gun. What do you guys think? Do let us know in the comments below.
