  • Muzzle: MIP Light Flash Guard
  • Barrel: OWC Marksman
  • Perk: Wild Hip Fire
  • Laser: MIP Laser 5mW
  • Ammunition: 50 Round Extended Mag

For this hip-fire loadout, we’ve gone for the MIP Light Flash Guard as it reduces hip fire bullet spread by 7.8%. Then, the OWC Marksman barrel helps increase its range and recoil control, which is vital to staying on target.

Next, the Wild Hip-Fire Perk and MIP Laser 5mW vastly increase hip-fire accuracy. The Perk increases jumping and sliding hip-fire accuracy, so you can stay mobile and accurate. Then, the Laser increases hip-fire accuracy by 17% and reduces the sprint to fire delay by 25%.

And lastly, the 50 Round Extended Mag gives you much more shots per magazine, and you don’t need to worry about the ADS speed delay.

Hip firing is ideal for close-range battles in CoD Mobile.

Play small maps

The first tip is to only play on small maps such as Shipment or Shoot House. Much of the combat will be close-range in nature, allowing hip fire to shine.

If you’re on a larger map, stick to the indoors and only try to take fights up close.

Stay mobile

The other thing you should do to improve your success while using hip fire is strafe-shooting and staying mobile. If you stand still, it’ll be extremely easy for enemies to hit you. But, if you strafe side to side as you shoot, while they struggle to track you, you’ll be staying completely accurate with hip-fire.
