COD Mobile Overkill perk:

For those uninformed, Overkill has been quite a popular perk across many COD titles. It would work a similar route in COD Mobile, as it has in different passages of the first-person shooter franchise.

The utility of the perk is basic. It permits players to equip two primary weapons. One of those weapons replaces the secondary weapon. Attachment restrictions still apply, and players can’t utilize two of the same weapons.

COD Mobile players have been teased with the addition of the Overkill perk for a long while. Ever since Season 8, the Overkill perk was put in the game for players to just gape at without any way of unlocking it. The perk was removed completely from the game in the Season 11 Anniversary Update.

The reason why this was done is that the Devs still don’t think that the weapons in the game have been balanced enough to allow players to run around with 2 primary weapons equipped.

Though players have been driving the Devs nuts, asking about the Overkill perk and its release, we believe that the perk won’t be made available to the players until Activision is happy with the balancing of the weapons.

The Overkill perk is quite a renowned perk in other COD titles. It has always been a fan-favorite. After all, who wouldn’t like to hold an AR as well as a Sniper? COD Mobile has always tried to implement content from the mainstream COD titles to make the gameplay experience more relatable.

So, we believe that, if once COD Mobile has planned to introduce the Overkill perk and for that matter, teased us with it, then they are sure to bring it in one of the upcoming seasons.

According to our opinion, Season 12 has been an absolute rollercoaster. We think the omission of the Overkill perk for Season 12 was actually the right decision. This is because we have got severely overpowered weapons like the Fennec Akimbo, .50 GS Akimbo. Now imagine players running around with a fennec akimbo along with the most efficient AR/SMG. It sure would make them invincible.

The fact that they removed it completely only shows that the balancing of weapons is going to take longer than we thought. It doesn’t mean that the Overkill perk won’t come ever.  COD Mobile won’t disappoint. They will surely find a way to add the Overkill perk.

All we can do now is focus on unlocking other rewards and grinding to help our teams win in the Knights Divided event.
