Meaning of Gunsmith Weapon Perks – ASSAULT RIFLES:

  1. FMJ
    • Increases bullet penetration damage. There has been a misconception about the FMJ perk. Most of the players still think that FMJ increases the ‘per-bullet-damage.’ But, it doesn’t. Even, the stats show the increased damage. But, there has always been a catch!
    • The ‘Damage’ parameter that is shown to you actually consists of sub-parameters. These are ‘Damage Range,’ ‘Bullet Penetration,’ and ‘Per-Bullet-Damage.’ And FMJ increases the ‘Bullet Penetration,’ nothing else.
    • It increases the penetration through surfaces and walls so that bullets do more damage as they shoot objects.
  2. Sleight of Hand
    • Lowers the time of reloading for your weapon.
    • Also slightly increases the Mobility of the weapon.
    • This is a great perk for not only ARs and snipers but also for players who have an aggressive gaming style.
    • It is going to be a great use in the upcoming update, where each weapon is going to get a full reload animation.
    • Damage to the opponent temporarily restricts their HP recovery.
    • This perk is useful because if you have dealt some kind of damage to the enemy and he manages to slip away, you can give him a chase without worries as his health won’t have regenerated as fast as before. So, you’ll still have the upper hand.
    • This perk, when equipped allows you to respawn with 2 times the total ammo.
    • This way you don’t need to equip the vulture perk anymore and also you won’t have to worry about running out of bullets mid-combat.
    • With this perk equipped if a player manages to get a shot at the leg of the enemy, then the movement speed of the enemy gets reduced temporarily.
    • So, even if your aim gets misaligned and instead of hitting the torso or the head the shot hits the leg of the enemy, he won’t be able to slip away easily and you can kill him after that too.
  4. TOUGH
    • Increase the pace of movement after respawn for a short period of time.
    • This perk is quite useful for aggressive players, especially in modes like Domination and Hardpoint. This perk will give players the slight boost required at the beginning to quickly reach and capture the points.
    • This perk slightly increases the Range and Velocity of the bullets. This way you can easily use ARs to eliminate enemies from a longer distance than normal.
    • 3 bullets are retrieved after being used in close proximity to kill.

Meaning of Gunsmith Weapon Perks – SMG:

    • This perk results in improved precision in Hip-Fire during sliding or jumping
    • The Hip-fire of weapons in COD Mobile has gotten way better. This perk is more useful and relevant than you might think. While sliding and jumping it is difficult to get a good shot by ADSing. So, your only option is to hip-fire. That is where this perk comes in to control the erratic nature of the hip-fire.
    • When this perk is equipped, the ammo gets refilled immediately upon scoring a double kill.
    • This perk is quite beneficial as most players might need to reload after scoring a double kill. So, this perk saves you the trouble of reloading by adding bullets to your magazine instantly
    • Damage to the enemy increases the reload speed of the weapon for a brief time
    • This perk allows players to dual wield weapons in-game and shoots via hip-fire. Currently, only 2 weapons namely – Fennec and .50 GS pistol support the akimbo perk. This perk has been wreaking havoc throughout the game.

Meaning of Gunsmith Weapon Perks – SNIPER RIFLES:

    • Weapon kills have the chance to refill ammo. However, the post-kill bullet recovery is quite random.
    • Increases the swap speed of weapons. It is especially useful when you have to switch to a melee or a pistol while sniping.
    • This way you can use the sniper to take out your enemies from a long distance and at the same time, defend yourself against any close-range surprise attacks by switching to your secondary weapon quickly.
    • Headshots slow enemy movement for a limited period. This is especially useful when players are using snipers like the Outlaw and the XPR-50 which are 2 shot-kills. The slowing down of the enemy can help the player take the second shot with ease.

    • Gives additional Weapon XP upon killing enemies via headshots. It makes perfect sense, right? Who wouldn’t want some extra appreciation upon getting a difficult headshot?

Meaning of Gunsmith Weapon Perks – SHOTGUN:

    • Damaging the opponent gives a short boost in moving speed.
    • This perk allows you to maneuver around the map faster after each kill, which is quite beneficial especially if you are carrying a shotgun. Players who use shotguns need to quickly maneuver around the map.
    • So, this perk allows them to do so quickly thereby helping them escape and prepare for another attack.
    • Reduces damage received while sliding. This is quite useful in the case of shotguns as while carrying a shotgun, players try their best to sneak in close to the enemy by sliding and jumping. This perk protects them slightly while maneuvering across the map.
