PDW57 Stats Best Class Setups & Attachments COD Mobile

The PDW57 is probably the most popular in COD Mobile. Today’s guide takes a look at the most important PDW statistics such as damage and fire rate. 

With these stats, we then give our top suggestions on the best attachments to use aswel as the best class setups for the weapon. 

While you’re here, don’t forget to take a look at the rest of our COD Mobile weapon guides:

Weapon background

The PDW57 first burst onto the scene in Black Ops 2. It was an overpowered beast before Treyarch patched it. The SMG also reappeared in later COD releases including COD Strike Team and the Zombies mode of BO2.


  • Damage: 90
  • Rate of Fire: 50
  • Recoil: High

As we can see from the above stats. The PDW 57 can kill in 2 shots if the shots land in the torso and upper body area. This also takes into consideration shots hit from close range. The PDW also has quite a moderate fire rate for an SMG. This is most likely to balance the high damage rate.

Finally, the recoil is quite high on this weapon despite it having a low ROF.

Best Attachments

The best attachments for the PDW are the Foregrip to control the recoil of the weapon. Quickdraw to allow you to snap onto enemies faster and Long Barrel to extend the SMGs range.
