Best Argus attachments in COD Mobile
Here is our recommendation to build the best attachments for Argus:
- Muzzle: Choke
- Barrel: BO Barrel
- Stock: Steady Stock
- Trigger Action: BO Lever
- Ammunition: BO Mag
With our Argus loadout, you will hit the enemy at longer range with tighter bullet spread, shoot faster, and reload quicker. Here’s how we choose the attachments:
We put the Choke muzzle on Argus to increase its damage range, and bullet spread for both ADS and Hipfire.
Barrel wise, we recommend the BO Barrel to increase its damage range and it's the least punishing barrel for argus.
For stock, we recommend using Steady stock to make the gun more steady, reduce vertical recoil, and increase bullet spread when ADS.
We highly recommend using BO Lever on Argus because this attachment reduces bolt time which makes the gun shoot faster.
Last attachment for Argus is the BO Mag ammunition, this will help you reload faster when using the gun.
Take a look at the stats change when using our Argus attachments:
|Argus||Base Stats||Our loadout Stats|
You can see that we have built the best Argus loadout which increases fire rate, accuracy, range, and control which make the gun stronger to use in close to medium range.
Is Argus Good?
Yes Argus is a good shotgun in COD Mobile, but unlike the KRM-262 which is great on its own, the Argus requires you to aim down sight more (ADS) to achieve greater accuracy.
We understand that some players only like to hip fire when using a shotgun, however if you want to see how good this shotgun is, just try using it with ADS and our recommended attachments.
Overall, the Argus is a great shotgun to use in Multiplayer and good for Battle Royale as well, once you get used to the need of ADS you will ditch the KRM-262 for the Argus.
Best Perk to use with Argus
For red perks we recommend Skulker, Agile, or Lightweight, these perks help compensate for the mobility losses over building the attachments which is a win win situation for us.
For green perks we recommend QuickFix, Vulture, or Toughness, these perks help improve your quality of surviving when using the Argus shotgun.
For blue perks we recommend Hardline or Hard alert to keep you more active during your matches.
Best Secondary to use with Argus
Argus is a shotgun which means that it's only powerful in close quarter to mid range, in this case you will want to have a great secondary to pair with it such as J358, Akimbo Dobvra, and L-CAR 9.
These secondary pistols are a great back up for when you are missing your shots or running out of ammo during your gunfight.
Overall, this is the best Argus loadout in COD Mobile that we've come up with, you get a powerful and great accuracy shotgun, with great perk to pair it with and a strong secondary to use for back up.
