The Oden is a bullpup assault rifle featured in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Call of Duty: Mobile.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare

"Fully automatic bullpup battle rifle maintains a slow cycle rate to help control hard hitting 12.7 x 55mm ammunition."
— Description

The Oden appears in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, and is manufactured by VLK.

Campaign

The Oden is one of the common assault rifles used by Barkov's Forces. Garrick is given an Oden by Hadir Karim when escaping from Barkov's estate in "Going Dark".

Multiplayer

The Oden can be unlocked in Create-a-Class at at rank 28; it is a fully-automatic assault rifle that has very high damage for its class. It can kill in 2 shots out to 40 meters if at least 1 shot hits the head or chest. The Oden’s chest damage multiplier is slightly higher than the FAL, so 1 chest shot followed by a shot anywhere else will kill. Even at long range, the Oden will only need 3 shots to kill. In hardcore, the gun will be a 1-shot kill at all ranges. This high damage comes with a low fire rate of 435 RPM, the slowest of any assault rifle. The gun will kill quickly in 2-3 shots, but missing shots is more punishing than with most other weapons in its class.

Compared to the FAL, the Oden can fire in full-auto but possesses slower handling characteristics. It has the slowest ADS of any unmodified assault rifle and is only slightly faster than some LMGs. The reload speed is also somewhat slow and the 20 round magazine can be depleted often if fired too recklessly. Additionally, move speed is mediocre compared to other assault rifles. Recoil is fairly heavy with each shot having a noticeable vertical bounce. Shooting over longer distances will often require single shots or small bursts instead of fully-automatic fire. These handling traits mean that the Oden generally works better at mid-long range in a less aggressive role, but the average hipfire spread can be a last ditch defense in tight spaces.

The Oden has several attachments that can fix weaknesses or build on the gun’s strengths. Attachments that boost ADS speed, such as Stippled Grip Tape, will help the Oden aim a bit faster for more aggressive use. The gun won’t match SMGs in speed but the player can trade a bit of the Oden’s stability for more favorable handling at midrange. The Oden’s high power also means that a long range role is quite viable. A longer barrel will slightly reduce vertical kick, increase muzzle velocity, and increase damage range. All of these will prove quite useful over longer sightlines. A magnified optic and some recoil reducing attachments will provide further assistance in shooting targets at long range. Equipping an extended magazine, Fully Loaded, or Sleight of Hand will make the Oden’s low capacity less of an issue.

The Oden also has one very unique attachment to consider: the Colossus Suppressor. This muzzle attachment will keep the player off of the compass when firing, increase the 2-shot kill range to about 50 meters, and grant a moderate improvement to vertical recoil. It comes with a hefty ADS speed penalty but provides a plethora of benefits for both stealth and mid-long range shooting. Combining the Colossus Suppressor with the 810mm or 730mm barrel will noticeably impede ADS time but will increase the 2-shot kill range considerably. This combination also grants a slightly longer maximum damage range than any combination on the FAL, so this is another factor to consider when choosing between the two weapons.

Call of Duty: Mobile

"An automatic assault rifle with 12.7mm large caliber and shoots a variety of special ammo. Slow fire rate but of great damage."
— Description

The Oden returns in Call of Duty: Mobile. It was added in June 2022 as part of the Season 5: Tropical Vision update.

Multiplayer

The Oden shares the same "sluggish high damage assault rifle" archetype as the AK-47, Man-O-War, and ASM10. However, it possesses the highest damage of any base Assault Rifle, excluding attachments (such as the 15 round FMJ on the AS VAL). This comes at the price of a slower fire rate, high recoil, and a smaller magazine capacity. While the damage to the torso and head sound attractive on paper, such multipliers only apply to the upper chest, necessitating accuracy to achieve a two-shot kill, and it does preserve its shots-to-kill over range very well, at least out to 40 meters.

In terms of ammunition, the Oden is very unique, possessing two unique attachments. The Subsonic ammunition suppresses the weapon like the .300 RTC on the M13 and increases range, at the cost of bullet velocity. The Duplex ammunition turns the weapon into a pseudo shotgun, adding a single bullet to each trigger pull, at the cost of damage (halving the damage for both bullets) and increasing ADS bullet spread. Like most weapons, it also possesses standard extended magazines.

Overall, the Oden is the ultimate high-damage assault rifle, but is also incredibly slow and hard to control to compensate. As such, skill will be required in surplus to achieve optimal results.

Battle Royale

Like most weapons, the Oden is available on the floor with no attachments, and can be retrieved from airdrops as custom blueprints. The Oden is a high-risk, high-reward assault rifle, trading in raw damage for fire-rate, recoil, and magazine size. However, this raw damage is exceptionally high, allowing to nearly outclass some weapons with fast TTKs in close-range. However, at longer ranges this damage falters. With a golden range mod, the headshot damage can increase to 108, allowing for a three-shot-kill.
