This guide gives you an updated list of all Operator Skills available in Call of Duty: Mobile as of 2024.


Description: A Flamethrower that blasts a stream of scorching fire within close range. The flamethrower’s main drawback is its short range.

Figure out those hot spots where enemies tend to group up.

Unlock level or method: Death Machine

Tips & Tricks:

  • Focus on close-range combat, the Purifier won’t make a difference in long-distance fights.

Description: The Tempest can shock enemies at any range with its lightning bolts. The weapon’s major strength is its ability to potentially turn an entire enemy team into a massive electric current.
