Scorestreaks are one of Call of Duty's most recognizable features, transcending the game and seeping into broader internet culture.

A simple system with potentially devastating consequences, scorestreaks reward players for their in-game performance by offering up items such as UAVs or Sentry Turrets for scoring points - with the catch being you can't die on the way to unlocking them.

Call of Duty: Mobile also carries the scorestreak torch, featuring versions of many of the franchise's most popular gadgets and gizmos.

Unlocking and using the best scorestreaks will be key to climbing COD: Mobile's ranked ladder, and to help save you some time, we have compiled a list of all the scorestreaks, explained how to unlock them, and what we consider the best in the game.

How To Unlock Scorestreaks And Set Them Up

Scorestreaks can be unlocked in one of two ways, either through a battle pass/season challenge or by purchasing them from the in-game store.

When the scorestreak is first introduced into the game is when it is likely to appear as a reward; after that, it becomes available through the store.

Every scorestreak costs 2000 credits, and once you purchase it, you will instantly have access to it.

The easiest way to purchase a scorestreak and equip it is through the 'loadout' menu.

Once in the loadout menu, click on 'scorestreaks'; from here, you can select what scorestreaks you wish to equip (you must pick three), as well as purchase any that you don't have.

You can have different scorestreaks for each loadout, simply navigate through our loadouts and complete the same process as before.

How Scorestreaks Work

Scorestreaks are only available in COD: Mobile's conventional multiplayer modes and are unlocked by wracking up a certain number of points without dying.

Points are earned through kills, completing objectives, destroying enemy scorestreaks, and gathering intel.

The cheapest scorestreak to unlock in COD: Mobile is the Shield Turret, which requires 300 to unlock. The most expensive is the VTOL gunship, costing 1600.

There is a way to make unlocking scorestreaks easier, and that is by using the Persistence perk.

When using the Persistence perk, dying will not reset your score streak.

Instead, scorestreaks will cost double their usual amount and can only be used once a match. Scorestreaks are also divided into three ranks, and you can only equip one of each rank at the same time.

The Best Scorestreaks

When it comes to the best scorestreaks, there are two considerations. Those that - no matter the cost - absolutely slap in the lobby and those that are cheap and thus more likely to end up in the lobby.

Something like the UAV, which requires only 400 points, is one of the game's most popular, giving you an incredible amount of information on your opponents.

While the VTOL gunship, costing 1600, is an absolute monster once unlocked, capable of taking out entire teams more than once and making what is likely already a good game even better.

That said, this is what we consider the best scorestreaks in COD: Mobile in 2023.

  • Advanced UAV
  • Care Package
  • Chopper Gunner
  • Cluster Strike
  • Lightning Strike
  • SAM Turret
