A fully equipped Loadout in Call of Duty: Mobile Multiplayer isn’t complete without an Operator Skill, a special weapon or equipment piece that unlocks cool weapons with limited ammo. During a Multiplayer Match, Operator Skills charge up over time and are activated by tapping the Operator Skill icon on the right side of the screen once charged. Operator Skill charge times are also accelerated by earning score through taking down enemies and completing in-game objectives.
As you level up, you’ll gain access to the six Operator Skills, which offer a range of powerful tools that fit a variety of playstyles. Here’s a rundown of the Operator Skills, items:
Flamethrower that blasts a stream of scorching fire within close range. Upon activation, your operator will be equipped in flamethrower. Hold down the fire button and unleash a heatwave that will burn enemies. The flamethrower’s main drawback is its short range. Expect to do plenty of damage up close against enemy forces, but don’t get your hopes up in attempting to burn someone sitting across the map. Figure out those hot spots where enemies tend to group up.
As the minigun fires, it continues to build up greater precision over time. Like other Operator Skills, the Scythe is best used when put up against multiple enemies. Pre-fire this weapon before entering an engagement to accurately take out enemies.
A fully automatic grenade launcher, the War Machine has a devastating payload and offers multiple grenade rounds in a circular drum and a fast-firing launcher to send them towards the enemy. The launcher fires in an arc towards targets, with direct hits being an instant kill and explosions within a few feet also typically resulting in a knockout. Another option is to aim these grenades at explosive objects, such as cars or flammable barrels, that are near enemies. If done correctly, the War Machine will set off these explosives and send unaware hostile forces flying.
The Tempest can shock enemies at any range with its lightning bolts. The weapon’s major strength is its ability to potentially turn an entire enemy team into a massive electric current. When a lightning bolt hits an enemy, any enemy within a few feet will also be downed as the current travels to other foes within close range.
Find those bottlenecks frequented by multiple enemies, equip this Tempest. When using the Tempest, be aware of the short charge up time before it fires its deadly bolts. Have a bit of cover on hand to duck and jump out of to mitigate this charge time, less you get shocked by an enemy before a single bolt is fired.
The Transform Shield is a useful defensive Operator Skills. It is a piece of mobile cover that can be used in doorways to large indoor areas, entrances to major lanes, or access points to flank routes. The shield helps slow an enemy down or act as a stronghold for you to use. When the Transform Shield is deployed there will be a flash effect that occurs in the radius around the shield that could disorient enemies. While the Transform Shield may not directly take down enemy forces, it is still an Operator Skill to consider as it could change an entire map’s structure and flow.
Once activated, tapping the fire button, this Operator Skill will shoot an arrow forward a short distance. Holding the fire button will pull the bowstring and arrow back farther, which, upon release, will propel the arrow forward at greater speed and distance. As the tooltip suggests, keeping the Sparrow drawn for a long time will maximize its range. This may be useful for hitting targets that are far away. However, it’s also possible to volley several arrows forward at a shorter distance by tapping the fire button. Try this out should you need to take out multiple enemies at once.
