Call of Duty: Mobile has come out with a huge update to the game to smooth out the bugs and introduce a whole new level of customisation with gunsmithing, rare weapons and other features. The developers are leaving no stone unturned when it comes to giving the fans what they want. The game has been following a season-based cycle and on August 16th, they finally released the much-awaited Season 9. It is by far one of the largest and most significant updates to come to the game and it certainly promises to be a game-changer. With a slew of new features like Gunsmithing and along with new content and rare weapon skins, how this season update impacts Call of Duty: Mobile is to be seen. 

Gunsmith and Rare Weapons

Players can now choose from more than a hundred attachments when customising weapons allowing players to update their favourite gun with new visuals and functional upgrades for a unique experience. Now, each weapon supports up to nine attachment slots with more than 60 attachments and gun perks available. Players can earn attachments by upgrading their weapon level, and Legendary, Epic and Rare weapons are now blueprints which are variants of the base weapons that come with various cosmetic differences as well as curated pre-equipped attachments. These accessories are pre-equipped on each specific blueprint without the need to level up the base weapon to unlock them. 

Also, rare weapons and uncommon weapons now have camo options that can be equipped to base weapons. The highest weapon level is now shared across all unlocked weapons and Blueprints of that type with no more need to level up every weapon players receive. Here's how you can pick up a rare weapon in BR. 

Show off your own signature style with charms, stickers, reticles, and grindable camos. Save your newly designed weapon as a customised choice in the loadout, including rare weapons.
