The sniper rifle category in COD Mobile is one of the most underused weapon classes in all of multiplayer. While it has some popular guns, players aren’t too inclined to whip out a sniper when other players are running around with ARs or SMGs. This might change when players learn about the gunsmith loadout for one of the more popular snipers, the Locus.
The Locus hails from Black Ops 3 and is a classic bolt-action sniper rifle. However, it is a DLC weapon, so players will need to complete a sniper rifle challenge in order to unlock it. Players can visit the sniper rifle category to see what the exact challenge is. When they unlock it, they’ll have a dominant gunsmith loadout ready to go.
Best Locus loadout in COD Mobile
One of the better qualities about the Locus is its propensity for quickscoping. Players will have insane mobility when they throw on the Locus, allowing them to bring up the scope much faster compared to other snipers. This specific quality is what the recommended gunsmith loadout is centered around. Of course, other aspects are also improved in the loadout, giving players a balanced loadout in total.
- Barrel: YKM Lightweight Short
- Optic: 4x Tactical Scope
- Stock: OWC Skeleton Stock
- Ammunition: OWC Stopping Power Reload
- Rear Grip: Stippled Grip Tape
There are three attachments on this Locus loadout that boost mobility. The YKM Lightweight Short, OWC Skeleton Stock and Stippled Grip Tape all improve ADS time, sprint-to-fire delay or movement speed in some way. This is a huge help to players who want to move around the map with the Locus.
The two attachments deal with other elements of sniping. The 4x Tactical Scope enables players to get a huge zoom on their enemies when they aim down sights. This makes the Locus viable at any range. Finally, the OWC Stopping Power Reload ammunition improves damage range, damage and magazine capacity. It decreases reload speed, recoil and ADS speed but the positives outweigh the negatives with this Locus loadout in COD Mobile.
