Call of Duty: Mobile – How to unlock the Sparrow


Call of Duty: Mobile’s Halloween event is live, with new missions, maps, and weapons. Much of the content is straight from Call of Duty: Black Ops, including the Sparrow. The Sparrow is a powerful compound bow that is as lethal as a sniper rifle, and worth the hoops you’ll have to jump through.

The Sparrow comes with explosive arrows that, according to the Call of Duty Wiki, increase in force the longer the bow gets drawn. It appeared in Call of Duty: Black Ops III and Online. Now it’s making a return for Call of Duty: Mobile. In Black Ops III, the Sparrow was always an instant kill, regardless of the draw strength. After killing an enemy, the arrow would explode in a small but lethal radius.

Part of the Halloween event includes the Operator Skill: Sparrow event. Most of the tasks for the event include playing on the Halloween map, Standoff.

How to unlock the Sparrow:

GameZebo wrote a detailed guide on the topic. Unlocking the Sparrow isn’t complicated so much as time-consuming. It follows a Destiny 2 approach where players must complete certain types of matches on specific maps or game modes to unlock part of the weapon.

GameZebo states the steps to unlock the Sparrow are:

  • Standoff: Kill ten enemies in Team Deathmatch

  • Standoff: Kill 30 enemies in Team Deathmatch

  • Standoff: Kill 50 enemies in Team Deathmatch

  • Kill 100 enemies in multiplayer

  • Use Operator Skills two times in multiplayer

  • Use Operator Skills four times in multiplayer

  • Kill six enemies in multiplayer with an Operator Skill

  • Kill ten enemies in a battle royale

  • Play three battle royale matches

  • Log in five days total

Standoff is the new map imported from the Call of Duty: Black Ops games. It’s a little spookier than usual with some Halloween decorations like pumpkins all over the place and set at night.

GameZebo adds that you will receive small rewards with every two tasks you complete.

The event runs from Oct. 21 to Nov. 1, giving players plenty of time to complete each of the tasks. Most of them are simple, and you can complete many of them during your first day.
