The current meta of COD Mobile is rather confusing for all. Usually, we only have to figure out which is the best gun in the game between two or three options.

After the previous season, the QXR and the PP19 Bizon were nerfed to the ground and became irrelevant. The meta then shifts to the ASM10 thanks to its buff. However, it's far from being the best weapon in COD Mobile as of now! The first spot has to go the way of AS-VAL.

Cod Mobile As Val
Season 2's best AR is back for its throne!

This particular performed pretty well in the last season already. But with the recent buff in fire rate and damage, the AS-VAL truly takes the spotlight! It also has vertical recoil, which is fairly hard to control, though. But with the right build, you can pretty much bull-doze through the enemy line with ease!

About the AS-VAL in COD Mobile

The AS-VAL is in the Assault Rifle class of COD Mobile. It has high damage, a very fast fire rate, and good accuracy, and a built-in suppressor. This gun was the best AR to use in close-range combat in Season 2, and now it wants to take that throne back.

This gun has an insanely fast fire rate.

However, the AS-VAL is not the easiest gun to master. SMGs like the PP19-Bizon may have an advantage because there are not enough rounds in its chamber. But once you have it under control, you will never let it out of your sight! Pair this with the Hachi katana, and you have the strongest close-range combo in the game in the current Season 5.

They even turned this gun into the VSS Sniper in Season 2.

Best Build for AS-VAL in COD Mobile Season 5

To make up for the downside of this weapon, attach the OWC Skeleton Stock. It reduces the ADS time and ADS movement speed considerably. This allows the gun to compete better with SMGs in the game.

The gun comes with its built-in suppressor, there's no need for a muzzle attachment. The MIP Quick Response Barrel makes a perfect fit for this gun. It further decreases the ADS time of the weapon, while increasing mobility. From there, be free to mix and match other attachments to your likings.

Here's an example of a pro build for the AS-VAL:
