COD Mobile Season 3, called Radical Raid, has plenty of changes, but the PPSh-41 doesn't appear to be going anywhere soon. The WW2 submachine gun was deadly before, and it remains untouched in the latest round of weapon tuning.
Anyone who is using the PPSh-41 will need to watch out for a high fire rate that causes the weapon to dance around. This affects both vertical and horizontal recoil, so it can be tough to control. But the right loadout can make the weapon a monster at close ranges with minimal recoil.
The best PPSh-41 loadout in COD Mobile Season 3
When creating a loadout for the PPSh-41 in COD Mobile Season 3, the focus should be placed on the speed and damage of the submachine gun. Certain attachments are used to supplement the weaknesses as well, such as damage range and recoil control.
- Barrel: "Banner" Heavy
- Rear Gip: Sturdy Grip Tape
- Laser: OWC Laser - Tactical
- Stock: RTC Steady Stock
- Ammunition: 35 Round Fast Mag
The centrepiece of this PPSh-41 loadout is the "Banner" Heavy barrel. Using this barrel will give you an extra boost to damage range, recoil to both degrees, and even a decrease in bullet spread overall. In almost every way, the weapon will get an increase in accuracy and control.
Of course, that comes at the cost of speed in multiple degrees. There is a decrease in movement speed, ADS movement, and the overall ADS on the weapon. The other attachments used will need to supplement additional mobility.
That's where the 35 Round Fast Mag comes in. and this is also incredibly important. Players only lose some magazine capacity, and in return, there are a handful of bonuses. These include faster reloads by 35%, increased movement speed, lower sprint-to-fire delay, and an ADS increase by 15%.
Other attachments are fairly standard and will increase accuracy and speed even further.
How to unlock the PPSh-41 in COD Mobile
For anyone that didn't earn the PPSh through the battle pass, a challenge must be completed. Typically these challenges are fairly easy to complete and are simple in nature.
In this case, you'll need to get 30 headshots with any submachine gun within the game. After that metric is met, the WW2 submachine gun is free to be used in any COD Mobile loadout, and with any luck, other submachines guns will be unlocked along the way.
