Top 10 Call of Duty Mobile Skins
Activision has crafted one of the best Call of Duty games in general on mobile platforms only for Android and iOS. Who would have thought that one of the greatest entries in the series would be a mobile-exclusive? Also, it has some of the best Call of Duty Mobile skins we’ve ever seen.
Call of Duty Mobile Is One of the Best Mobile Games Ever
Quite frankly, Call of Duty Mobile is one of, if not the, the best mobile games that I have ever played and, trust me, I’ve played a lot of them over the years since they became popular. Released late last year, this game has quickly risen through the ranks to take the mobile world by storm.
It is so great because of everything that it offers that makes it complete and on par with everything that we have seen from the mainline Call of Duty series as a whole. It not only has the standard online multiplayer, but it has Zombies (well, did) and battle royale to boot.
In this way, it has about the same amount of content as Black Ops 4, which had no mainline story to play, and could, arguably, be better than that in all honesty. The content is matched by equally impressive gameplay that works well on mobile devices without sacrificing the quality.
And then there is the fact that we get new seasons every so often, so that there is always a reason to come back and play more of it. Those new seasons typically come with cosmetic options and items, like skins and the like. To help with that, I am going to give you the top 10 best Call of Duty Mobile skins.
How Call of Duty Mobile Handles Skins
Before we jump into that, here is how skins are handled in the game. In a lot of ways, it is quite similar to its big brother Modern Warfare that released right around the same time, but for consoles and PC. Both of these games have an odd way of handling skins in their respective games.
Instead of just having unique outfits or other things that you can equip on a single character you create or use in battle, there are separate characters that are used as the “skins” in Call of Duty Mobile. You can further customize some of them by getting new skins for them that change how they look.
If we’re being honest, though, Call of Duty Mobile handles this aspect much better than Modern Warfare does, as the skins are unique and many of the characters have more than one to their name. These skins can be used across multiplayer and battle royale, making it possible to look how you want in each mode.
Top 10 Best Call of Duty Mobile Skins: List
Before I get into our top 10 best Call of Duty Mobile skins list, there are some criteria that you should know about. Given how awesome the skins are overall in this mobile game, it was surprisingly difficult to narrow down the number of epic skins to just 10.
Also, the actual ranking of the top 10 best Call of Duty Mobile skins was challenging on its own, as all 10 of these are worth your attention and possibly currency. So, without a doubt, you can’t go wrong with any of the 10 skins that are listed here, so being the first one on the list isn’t necessarily a bad thing.
But how I did rank the top 10 best Call of Duty Mobile skins was purely based on my preferences. I chose them based on how they look in general, how they might make a twist on a particular character, how cohesive and interesting the design and colors are, and how they compare to the others on this list.
So, without further ado, let’s jump right in and take a look at what I think are the 10 best skins that you can find in Call of Duty Mobile on Android and iOS.
10. Recon Samuria
The first one to kick off the list is the Recon Samuria skin. What is interesting about this particular skin is that, as the name implies, it takes a sort of samurai approach to the Recon character. For the most part, it works but it does so in a flawed approach that could have been handled better.
The character has a sci-fi-like samurai aesthetic that is balanced with the normal armor that you would expect from a modern soldier at war, making an interesting combination overall. The helmet and emblem on the belt are particularly noteworthy and rather nice.
What makes this skin not as great as it could have been, though, is the coloration of it. Going for a nasty orange and brown color scheme was an odd decision, and it doesn’t lend itself well to this skin. While it is still pretty good, had it been different colors, it would have easily climbed to the number one spot.
The only way to get this skin was through the Ancestor crate in Season 6.
9. Scarlet Kingsnake
The Scarlet Kingsnake skin is a simple but pleasing look that would make you look rather cool in battle. It features a simple soldier outfit that has a helmet, visor, and mask. In this way, it is your standard sweet-looking soldier, but in a way, it is the exact opposite of the previous skin.
Had this one been a standard brown or black soldier outfit color, it probably wouldn’t have ended up on this list at all. But because of the red and white color scheme that is rather stylish, it can make it onto this list. It almost seems like you are the red Power Ranger of Call of Duty Mobile.
In this way, it is a great option for those players who want to stick to the standard soldier armor but have some nice touches that keep it mixed up. Plus, the visor on this skin is exceptional. Unfortunately, this skin was only available through a limited-time offer.
The next skin on this list is FTL. There are a lot of futuristic skins in Call of Duty Mobile, but this one might be the most on-the-nose of them all. Its name says it all, as you look like you are a space pilot of sorts while you are wearing this skin in combat.
The outfit itself is the weaker part of this skin, as it looks like a stripped down astronaut suit with all of the wires and under sections exposed to the eye. This makes it look a little cheap, but the helmet that you are wearing more than makes up for everything else.
The FTL helmet is, quite frankly, the best looking helmet that you will find in the entire game. While it is unfortunate that it isn’t paired with an equally amazing suit, this is one skin that you could pick up if you want to have that sci-fi soldier style.
7. Seraph Tombstone
From here on out, the remaining skins on this list are basically flawless and well put together in their way. Starting with Seraph Tombstone, we have an interesting take on this Specialist that is something that we never knew we needed.
It takes the standard Seraph character and takes her to the Wild West. But not just any Wild West, though, but the grim reaper, outlaw side of things. Seraph looks like the reaper of death who just walked into the saloon and is ready to send people to the graveyard.
The outfit is stellar, featuring a purple aesthetic that prevails across all of it. There are nice little markers like the skull on the ammo belt and the fantastic hat on top. This is one skin that you don’t want to miss out on, especially if you like Seraph.
Reaper is another Specialist character that you could unlock in Call of Duty Mobile. But unlike the others on this list, this is the base skin for Reaper. Even though this isn’t some special version of the character, it is already amazing on its own and worth checking out.
Reaper is a Specialist robot who is a lot like the Legion party member from the Mass Effect series. It features a tan-like color of metal armor (that works here unlike in Recon Samuria) that covers most of the body, except for some darker parts in the middle.
Overall, the armor is great and gives this robot a deadly killer vibe. But what tops things off is the head of Reaper. Its head is sharply designed with a single red eye in the middle where the robot sees from. You could only unlock Reaper through tier one of the Season 5 paid battle pass.
5. Spectre Ultra 9
If Scarlet Kingsnake is the red Power Ranger, Spectre Ultra 9 is the Megazord that the entire team uses. This take on the Spectre Specialist character is fantastic and one-of-a-kind. It takes the character and gives them an interesting blue and red color scheme.
They look like a deadly Power Ranger Megazord with the claw-like markings across the chest of the armor with an intriguing emblem at the center. Throughout the armor, there is a perfect blend and red and blue, with neither color taking over the other.
Though the leg armor could have used a bit more color, as it is mostly gray, this is one skin that you can’t go wrong with. It was only available in the game as part of the Dream Crystal draw.
4. Battery Sting
Next up is a skin for Battery that is the Sting version. This Specialist gets a rather inspired skin that feels superhero in design. It takes Battery and gives her some bee hive-like armor. It glows and looks great, contrasting the black and gold with the white of the rest of the skin.
Overall, Battery Sting is a competent skin for the character that makes her feel like an Avenger superhero is going to fight the bad guys in multiplayer. If you want to be the Queen Bee, then look no further than this great skin. Unfortunately, it was only part of the Cosmos Chance.
3. Ghost Plasma
If you’ve read our Modern Warfare best skins list, you will know that we love Ghost dearly. This is a sentiment that is prevalent throughout the Call of Duty community, as Ghost is one of the most famous and loved characters in the entire series.
And Ghost Plasma takes the character to a whole new level. Known for his signature Punisher-like mask on his face, this time around, the colors for Ghost are a light gray and purple mixed nicely together. Ghost is already great on his own, but this only makes him better.
Plasma takes his goggles and makes them a pearlescent purple, and gives just the right mix of purple accents across the skin. If you are a fan of Ghost, then be sure to grab what is likely his best look ever. It is only available in the Ghost Plasma soldier crate.
2. Outrider Skeleton
Our runner-up for the best skin in all of Call of Duty Mobile is the Outrider Skeleton skin. Only available as part of the Halloween lucky draw, you can certainly understand why when you take a look at this amazing take on the Outrider character.
Given that it was part of Halloween, it should be no surprise then that the Outrider Skeleton outfit takes the character to Dia de Los Muertos and it will strike some impressive fear into foes that come across you while wearing this.
What is interesting is that the face paint is striking and terrifying at the same time, but the rest of the outfit is surprisingly colorful and contrasts the face well. The outfit is a nice blend of red, blue, and white, having the skeleton outline of the body as well. A lot is going on in this skin and it could have ended poorly, but it was all done exceptionally well.
1. Spectre Geist
When it comes to the best skin around that you can get in Call of Duty Mobile, look no further than Spectre Geist. That’s right, Spectre is the only character to be on here twice; that’s just how good his skins are. This Specialist’s second skin on this list, Geist, just comes together too perfectly.
A far cry from the Megazord he was in his other skin, Spectre Geist is a more of a traditional take on the character with some color swaps. What makes this skin so amazing, though, is that this take is flawless and immaculate, with the designs and colors coming together better than any other skin here.
For the most part, the main color is purple in this skin but there are little touches of blue and black that help to balance it out. Then there are the blue lines that go up and down the legs that give off an almost electrical wire feel that makes Spectre more robot-like overall. Spectre Geist is a futuristic soldier ninja that will make you the envy of your teammates. It was only in the Muted Mercenary bundle.
