The Swordfish tactical rifle is a four-round burst rifle originated from Black Ops 4 and has a slow rate of fire but massive time-to-kill potential. To increase the Swordfish’s capabilities even more, players can equip its recommended loadout in COD Mobile.
Players can unlock the Swordfish via an in-game challenge through the assault rifle section of your loadout menu. The tactical rifle was originally available through the Battle Pass, but if you didn’t unlock it then, the challenge or buying a blueprint for the Swordfish is your only way to gain access to the rifle. In any case, once players unlock the Swordfish, they can equip its recommended loadout, which is viewable below.
Best Swordfish loadout in COD Mobile
In its base form, the Swordfish won’t kill enemies too quickly. It has a lower damage range and slow rate of fire, making any gunfight a challenge. However, it does have almost no recoil and decent movement speed for a bigger rifle. This means that players can focus on time-to-kill and mobility with the gun’s best loadout.
- Barrel: MIP Light
- Laser: OWC Laser – Tactical
- Underbarrel: Strike Foregrip
- Ammunition: Halberd Mag
- Rear Grip: Stippled Grip Tape
The loadout begins with some mobility improvements. The MIP Light Barrel, Stippled Grip Tape and OWC Laser – Tactical all help with ADS speed to make the Swordfish competitive in closer-range gunfights. This is complemented by the Strike Foregrip, which provides extra movement speed when running, which is important once you realize how slow the Swordfish can be.
The last attachment is the Halberd Mag, which turns the Swordfish into a five-round burst weapon. It also improves damage range by 100%, ADS bullet spread accuracy by 30% and vertical recoil by 45%. However, it comes at the cost of damage. This is a fair trade-off, though, as players will be killing players quicker at range. You have to remember that when firing, as you want to ensure you’re hitting all possible bullets with your five shots.
