Call of Duty Mobile A Basic Guide About Striker

2021-08-27 Submit Sponsored Content

Striker is one of the most underrated shotguns because of its mid to close range and the fact that it takes a ridiculously long time to reload. The reload time of the gun is 8.35 seconds. This reload time is very long compared to the other guns, and this can prove fatal when on the battlefield. However, the Striker does provide good damage, and the mag size is 12, which is very good considering the damage it inflicts on enemies. This can be upgraded up to 16 from the Gunsmith Loadout. This gun can be unlocked after the player reaches level 12.


Striker is a semi-automatic shotgun that provides higher accuracy at medium and close ranges. The gun can kill an enemy with only two shots at medium range. However, if the enemy is close enough, it will only take one bullet in the chest or head area to take down the enemy. This is a tier A weapon, which means it can deal pretty good damage even without the attachments from the gunsmith. And with the attachments equipped, this gun will go on killing the enemies like it is supposed to do. This gun is usually very suitable for aggressive type players because of the damage and accuracy it has and the mobility it provides.


COD-M intro


Before you start playing any game its essential guidelines are really very important in the game therefore we recommend you to read the Beginners guide and Pro Tips before you start playing the game.




For a shotgun, this gun provides a decent fire rate and good damage in Battle Royale. This gun can only be found in customized airdrops in the loadout after its blueprint was removed from Battle Royale.


In multiplayer mode, this gun is the choice of many experienced players. Because of the mobility of this gun, with its damage and accuracy, this gun can prove its value on the battlefield. And the rate of fire is also good, which means that this gun does not let enemies stand near it. The recoil is also very low, which favors the accuracy of the gun. This gun may prove difficult for players who are new to shotguns. Nut once that phase passes, it is very hard to ignore it for the ultimate experience of the game.




Gunsmith Loadout:


Since this gun is a tier A shotgun, it can be a pretty good asset even without the attachments, but with the added advantage of attachments, this gun will become a beast. It is recommended to upgrade this gun to its maximum capacity for the best performance this gun can provide. This gun only lets players add three attachments. Here we will guide players to the best possible loadout and their effects to make this gun even more fun to play with. You can also check out gunsmith guide for that.


Muzzle: The best option for this attachment is Choke. This attachment decreases the spread of bullets in the shotgun. This attachment seems a logical choice to go with, but we wouldn’t recommend using it. Since this gun only lets you have three attachments, it is best to consider other attachments first because the benefits of other attachments outweigh the benefit of Choke.


Barrel: The best option for the barrel is to go with Long Barrel. This attachment will increase the range of the gun. Since the range is the problem for Striker, this attachment comes very handy in this regard.


Optic: Optics are used to target the players that are very far from the gun. Since this gun is good only for medium and short ranges, it is best not to use the optic scope. And with the short-range, this gun provides a large area of impaction because bullets spread from the shotgun. So this removes the usage of scope even for the players that are new to the shotgun. The best alternative is to use the laser that will help in increasing the accuracy, among other things.


Stock: Stock is not recommended for this shotgun because it does not provide any tactical advantage to the gun as other attachments do. So left this attachment unattached.


Laser: Laser is the best option to go instead of optic scope because it gives a more strategic advantage to the gun. The best option for the laser is to go with MIP Laser 5mW. This attachment not only gives more hip-fire accuracy but also slightly improves bullet spread and sprint out time. However, as great things come with a downside, this laser has high-intensity light that can become visible to the enemy. But, as the shotguns players are not big on concealment, this attachment is best for the Striker.




Rear grip: Rear grip attachment also does not provide any tactical advantage to the gun. So left this attachment unequipped.


Ammunition: Ammunition is the best option among other attachments to go with. Since the gun has a relatively small mag size, it is best to upgrade this attachment as soon as possible. There are two options that are best, and both have their strategic advantage on the battlefield. The first option is to go with a 16 Round Extended Reload Case. This option will give you more bullets in the magazine, and the player can kill more enemies in a single reload. This will, however, increase your reload time.


The second option is to go with Fast Reload Reload Case. This option will decrease the player’s reload time up to a certain amount. Players can go with either option depending on their experience with this shotgun. It is recommended that if the player is new to this gun, the best option to go with is the Fast Reload Reload case. Because this will help them get a good grasp of this gun, and when they become experienced enough, switch to the Round Extended Reload Case to get the ultimate experience out of this shotgun.


Perk: Perks allow the gun and the player to gain various strategic boosts in the game. Here are the best options of perks that will go with Striker that will boost its performance.


  • Among the red ones, choose Fast Recovery to gain a health boost every time your health is down.
  • Among the green ones, choose Ghost, which will keep you hidden from the enemies Radar.
  • Choose Aler among the blue ones, which will give you a heads up whenever an enemy comes near you. Since Striker is a short-ranged weapon, this perk is recommended for it.
  • These attachments will increase the accuracy and range of the gun and give the advantage over the enemy. And with the added perks, this will make you invisible to the enemy and turn the wheel of the game to the player’s side. Players will see a considerable change in the weapon’s performance after these upgrades.
