The game’s newest SMG, the PPSh-41, has had some teething issues with its Legendary Weapon Blueprint. Thankfully, the developers are aware of the problem and are working to fix it.
Season 1 of Call of Duty: Mobile launched earlier this week and it’s fair to say the update has been well received.
The Alcatraz battle royale map was brought back. There is a new Battle Pass and Ranked Series to grind, giving players plenty to get their teeth into.
There was also the addition of two weapons beloved by fans of the franchise – the PPSh-41 and the Kilo 141.
The Kilo 141 isn’t available yet, that will arrive soon through a Seasonal Challenge. But the PPSh-41 submachine gun is and it’s already proven a popular weapon.
There is a problem though. Many players are reporting that the Second Chance Draw skin for the PPSh-41, called Emberwing, is bugged and now the developers have responded.
PPSh-41 – Emberwing Skin Broken – Developers Promise to Fix
When the PPSh-41 was added to the game at the start of Season 1, the iconic SMG arrived with two Legendary Weapon Blueprints.
One was the tier 50 reward in the content-packed Battle Pass. The other is available through the latest Second Chance Draw, packaged alongside a skin for the Shorty and Operator, Ether.
As you probably know, these skins can get pretty expensive. So it’s no surprise that players expect them to a) look great and b) work as intended.
And while the fire imbued PPSh-41 Emberwing looks the part – players are reporting that it is glitched.
A post on the COD: Mobile subreddit showcases the problem. When ADS’ing with the PPSh-41 Emberwing the textures glitch causes the player’s vision to be completely obscured.
It obviously makes shooting pretty difficult…
At the time of writing, the post has 318 upvotes, a sure sign that the poster isn’t alone with this problem.
Thankfully, the developers were quick to respond saying that the team is currently looking into it and they hope to “get a fix in ASAP.”
So, if you were lucky in the draw but unlucky in the prize, then you can at least rest assured that the developers are working to fix the problem.
Emberwing Fix Coming “As Soon as Possible”
When exactly that happens isn’t yet clear. COD: Mobile has had numerous issues with both free and paid skins being bugged.
If you have yet to try your hand at getting the Legendary skin, we would suggest holding out for a fix. Once, it has been confirmed fixed then look to pick it up, until then save your CP.
However, it isn’t all doom and gloom for the PPSh-41! The gun performs phenomenally, especially with the best loadout and attachments.
In fact, it’s done so well it has quickly made it into our best weapons in COD: Mobile, check out our other picks to dominate the battlefield.
It’s also the perfect gun for Alcatraz. The BR map is back – and there are plenty of cosmetic rewards to earn in the Return to Alcatraz event!
