The leading meta for Season 8 are still assault rifles but there's another change made to SMG ranking and the appearance of a new shotgun as well.

1.Kilo 141

The Kilo 141 remains as the best gun in COD Mobile Season 8, known for having high damage and recoil, the Kilo 141 is exceptional for both multiplayer and battle royale.

Best gun in cod mobile: Kilo 141

The Kilo 141 is an assault rifle that is used by a lot of new players, veterans, and professional players. The combo of high damage, low recoil, fast fire rate, and great accuracy make it impossible to not place this gun at the top of the list.

2. Krig 6

Making appearance in the last season, the Krig 6 is still the second best gun in Season 8, this gun fits perfectly for the current multiplayer meta.

Best gun in cod mobile: Krig 6

If you are an aggressive player and want a gun that deals very high damage and has a very fast fire rate and you don’t mind having to control recoil. The Krig 6 is for you.

The Krig 6 rewards players with aggressive playstyle thanks to its high mobility and versatile performance.

3. Switchblade X9

Switchblade X9 has dethroned Razorback and CBR4 to become the best SMG in COD Mobile Season 8 especially for multiplayer.

Best gun in cod mobile: Switchblade X9

After the Razorback rapid fire nerf and the CBR4 hit flinch nerf, the Switchblade X9 presents itself in the right opportunity to become the best SMG that is known for having very low recoil, great range, and high damage.

The Switchblade X9 is also very versatile which is great for all rounder playstyles, aggressive, passive, either way the Switchblade X9 will be a perfect smg for you.

4. DL Q33

The King of Sniper is still the DL Q33. It's the best sniper in Season 8 and we might never have seen any other sniper outrank this one.

Best gun in cod mobile: DL Q33

A true one shot one kill sniper that we all know, the DL Q33 is loved by each and every player and still continues to dominate COD Mobile multiplayer lobby.

What makes DL Q33 the best sniper? Oh i thought you already knew, extremely high damage, fast mobility (ADS Speed), movement speed, and most importantly one shot one kill.

5. HDR

The runner up in best sniper category is the HDR, while the DL Q33 is built for multiplayer, the HDR is built for Battle Royale lobby.

Best gun in cod mobile: HDR

The HDR is a sniper that deals great damage with high shot accuracy. It's built for Battle royale because of the low mobility this gun has but don’t get it twisted. This gun packs a punch especially headshot and the range support on this sniper is exceptional.

6. SKS

Standing on number sixth of our list is the SKS, a true 2 shot kill weapon but it requires skill and good aim to be good at this gun.

Best gun in cod mobile: SKS

Let me start by saying this, the SKS is not for everybody, especially if you are a new player, the skill ceiling of using this weapon is very high, you will need to learn a lot about single tap firing and managing its recoil.

It can be a daunting task but if you are willing to learn the SKS, you will see its potential and it may become your favourite gun as well.

7. QQ9

Ranking seventh on our Season 8 best gun list is the QQ9 SMG, an aggressive weapon that fits for an aggressive playstyle.

Best gun in cod mobile: QQ9

If you are a player that likes to make play by run n gun, cutting enemies route and just go for high kills all the time, the QQ9 is designed just for you.

This gun has very fast mobility, deals very high damage, and it has an extremely fast fire rate as well, the only thing that keeps the QQ9 from being used by all players is the high recoil control you need to learn to master the gun.

8. CBR4

Look how far the prince has fallen, all the way to the bottom split we have the CBR4 SMG.

Best gun in cod mobile: CBR4

This SMG got hit by the nerf so hard it dropped 4 places, what makes the CBR4 extremely strong pre nerfed is the hit flinch resistance, you literally can beam the enemy cross map because when they hit you, you stand still like a tree.

Now after the nerfs you can still do that, but your accuracy will drop immensely due to the hit flinch you get from the enemies in gunfight.

However, because the CBR4 still has good damage, fast fire rate, and low recoil control, it’s still usable especially in Battle royale.

9. Holger 26

The Holger 26 is the best light machine gun to use in Season 8 Battle royale, this gun beam.

Best gun in cod mobile: Holger 26

A very well known LMG for dealing high damage and low recoil control the Holger 26 remain at the top when it come to beaming enemy cross map without breaking a sweat, just get yourself a good close range weapon and use the holger 26 for long range target and your battle royale journey is set.

10. KRM-262

The KRM-262 is the best shotgun in COD Mobile Season 8, the shotgun is a fan favourite in Battle Royale.

Best gun in cod mobile: KRM-262

The KRM-262 is very well known for having small hip fire bullet spread that makes hitting an enemy in close range extremely easy and having high mobility allows for run n gun or jump slide n gun as well. 

The KRM-262 cementing itself as the best shotgun in Battle royale for this reason and its still use by a lot of players as well as in multiplayer as well, but the next gun that we about to show you is pretty interesting and maybe able to compete with the KRM-262 in the future.

11. Argus

Argus is a brand new Season 8 shotgun that just released, this shotgun is something special but we might have to let the time tell. For now we can say that it's a great shotgun to use in multiplayer.

Best gun in cod mobile: Argus

The Argus is a shotgun that deals high damage, has very tight bullet spread and great for close quarter combat to mid range combat, the catch of this shotgun is that it needs you to aim down sight most of the time to output maximum damage.

As we all know Shotgun users mostly use hipfire to eliminate their enemies and when we put the ADS factor into it, it might not be as popular as the other shotgun, but we are telling you, this shotgun is something special.

12.Akimbo Dobvra

Lastly we have our ol’trusty Akimbo Dobvra pistol, the best secondary in COD Mobile Season 8 that is great for sniper support and back up.

Best gun in cod mobile: Akimbo Dobvra

Akimbo Dobvra is a pistol that deal high damage with fast fire rate and great accuracy which make for emergency close range gunfight, especially when you primary weapon run out of ammo or when you use sniper and the enemy rush into your proximity, wiping the Akimbo Dobvra out can secure you multiple kills that your sniper couldn’t hit.


Overall, COD Mobile Season 8 Weapon meta makes some switches and changes to the bottom 10 but the top 2 guns are still dominated by Krig 6 and Kilo 141.

Besides that, enjoy the new season, pick up some new weapons and have fun in the second half of series 4 ranked.
