When does CoD Mobile Season 2 start?
Season 1 of CoD Mobile is here with lots of new content, but when is Season 2 of the free-to-play Call of Duty game expected to start?
Call of Duty Mobile underwent a rebirth of sorts by having its 14th Season reset and start from Season 1 again. This soft reboot has added lots of new content to the game, but fans are already looking ahead to see what Season 2 could bring.
To possibly save CoD Mobile from being affected by number-fatigue, the game has reverted back to Season 1 for its first major content drop of 2021. The “New Order” update has introduced new modes, a new map, and much more.
The devs have made sure to keep the game fresh with new goodies to look forward to each month. 2021 is expected to be no different for the smash-hit mobile game, so here’s everything you need to know about Season 2.
When will CoD Mobile Season 1 end?
The all-new Reclaim map was just one of the cool, new things introduced in Season 1’s January 26 launch date. There was also plenty of new loot that you’d expect in the form of a new Battle Pass, weapons, characters, and cosmetics.

Attentive Season Pass owners will notice that their Season 1 Battle Pass is set to expire on March 10. As with previous seasons of CoD Mobile, we fully expect Season 2 to kick-off with a bang sometime on March 11.
What content will be in CoD Mobile Season 2?
Given that it’s still nearly two months until Season 2 is expected to launch, it’s understandable that not too much has been said about what we can expect.
However, a leak has revealed that another Modern Warfare map is coming. The chaotic Shoot House map is currently undergoing Beta testing in China, meaning there are a few weeks left to iron out any kinks.
Other than that, we will obviously expect a new Battle Pass, weapons, maybe more maps, and modes too.
What will CoD Mobile Season 2’s theme be?
CoD Mobile is no stranger to cool themes that help shape the nature of a season. In the past, we’ve seen wars between different factions and even a Western theme too.
Given that the game is currently trying to feel reinvigorated with its new Seasonal numbering, we can expect Season 2 to have a much different theme to Season 1.
With Season 1 still being very much fresh on everyone’s minds, and phones, there isn’t too much to be discussed on the Season 2 front just yet.
But just like the Shoot House beta, if any small details trickle out, then we’ll be the first to let you know.

CoD Mobile Season 1 New Order patch notes: Reclaim, Battle Pass skins, & modes
Call of Duty: Mobile Season 1 New Order brings fresh new content across MP & Battle Royale, including the SKS weapon.
Call of Duty: Mobile’s first new season of 2021 kicks off on January 26 with a variety of new MP & Battle Royale content for all players jumping into the action.
The new season begins at 4PM PT on January 26, 2021 on iOS and Android with the latest update for the Mobile game.
In new a blog post on the Activision site, the team has detailed what fans can expect in terms of new content coming with Season 1 New Order. Activision switched the season naming scheme back to Season 1 for Call of Duty: Mobile starting in 2021 to avoid having un-ending season numbers for the game in the future.
The new Season is highlighted by a brand new, original map, new Battle Pass cyberpunk themed skins, the SKS weapon, and more new modes across MP & Battle Royale.
Call of Duty: Mobile will also feature the Fight for Humanity event, with new seasonal rewards as part of the limited time event.
Let’s break down the new content as part of Season 1 New Order.
New Order comes with a brand-new Battle Pass featuring 50 tiers of free and Premium content including new characters, new weapons, Blueprints, charms, and more.
Battle Pass Free Tiers
New Order brings two new weapons to the mix, including the FR. 556, a free base weapon unlocked at Tier 21. This assault rifle packs a mighty punch, and performs well at medium-to-long range. In fact, the FR. 556’s burst fire capability makes it a surprisingly good weapon for long-range fights.
There are lots of other free items to unlock, including the Operator Skill – Gravity Vortex Gun at Tier 14, tacticals like the Flashbang Grenade – Light Show at Tier 28 and Concussion Grenade – Light Show at Tier 34, and plenty of free credits on the road to Tier 50.
Premium Pass Tiers
Purchase the Battle Pass for the chance to earn all of the content available in the New Order stream. Unlock cyberpunk style character skins like FTL – Power Line, Spectre – Chrome, Prophet – Geist, and David Mason – Enforcer. Expand your arsenal with epic blueprints like the Cordite – Tech Noir, the Locus – Carbon Cat, the FR .566 – Rogue Agent, the HBRa3 – Capacitor, and the HG-40 Cybersick.
New Weapon: SKS
Those looking to put in more effort can earn another base weapon, the SKS, via the seasonal challenge Battle Royale Bluff. This Marksman Rifle is all about dominating long-range firefights with its fast-firing Kilo Bolt-Action. The SKS will be available in mid-February.
New MP Map: Reclaim
Battle it out in the dilapidated remains of a holiday shopping complex in Reclaim, a brand-new and original map joining the Multiplayer rotation on Call of Duty: Mobile.
Stick to the ground floor boutiques and fight it out against enemies in the street, or head upstairs for the height advantage at the risk of getting ambushed at a moment’s notice.
New MP & BR Modes
New Multiplayer Modes: 3v3 Gunfight & 20-Player Attack of the Undead
New Order expands two fan-favorite modes into even more chaos with the addition of 3v3 Gunfight and 20-player Attack of the Undead. In Gunfight, a third teammate creates all kinds of new possibilities for winning rounds, and with 20 players in Attack of the Undead you’ll need to be in top fighting form to fight off the horde.
New Battle Royale Mode: Blitz
No dilly-dallying now, Blitz is here as a brand-new Battle Royale variant featuring 40 players in a fast-paced match. It’s not much over ten minutes until the final safe zone forms, so stay alert and keep moving forward into ever more present danger.
Don’t fret, though, as the map is filled with extra items to compensate for the mode’s shorter duration. From equipment to weapons, it’s only a short search away from a strong loadout, letting you focus on the battles ahead.
Limited Time Event
Pick Your Side in The Fight for Humanity Event
Choose your faction: Atlas or Cordis. In the Fight for Humanity event, arriving later this Season, each faction vies for control over territory. Win new territory each day by completing different tasks. Can your faction win all 15 territories?
Accumulate both personal and faction points for your efforts, reaching toward milestone and leaderboard prizes. Winning a territory awards a bonus toward your personal points, so it pays to work on the day’s task. Reach a high enough milestone to show off your dedication with a faction specific cosmetic skin and an epic weapon blueprint.
Be sure to drop into Call of Duty: Mobile starting at 4PM PT on January 26 for Season 1 New Order, and follow us @CODMobileClips for the latest updates!
New CoD: Mobile leak reveals another Modern Warfare map is coming
A new leaked clip has revealed that the Shoot House map from Modern Warfare is getting its first remake in COD: Mobile.
A new leak has revealed that the Shoot House map from Modern Warfare is being beta tested in a Chinese server, which means that we’ll see it arrive in Call of Duty: Mobile soon. Here’s what we know so far.
Call of Duty: Mobile is entering a brand new Season, which means that there’s a plethora of new content on the horizon. This includes some exciting new maps, and the new update will be bringing its fair share of those.
The game already has a lot of locations from other Call of Duty titles, and a new leak has emerged which suggests that another one from Modern Warfare will be added soon. This is referring to Shoot House, which was introduced back in November 2019.
COD: Mobile adds Shoot House map
This map was part of Modern Warfare’s first free updates in 2019, and it gained popularity due to its fast-paced gameplay. It’s fairly small in size, which means that you’ll encounter enemies around every corner and have plenty of flanking opportunities.
The map’s immense popularity among fans explains why it’s getting a remake so soon, and players have a chance to try it out in a Chinese CoD Mobile Beta test. Domination is available to play as a game mode, and the map’s design hasn’t changed much.
You’ll be better off sticking with SMGs and Shotguns when playing on this map due to the close-quarters nature of the combat. We strongly recommend you set up a class that’s ideal for mobility, and allows you to fire from the hip.
So far, this remake of Shoot House is only available for COD: Mobile in a Beta stage. That means that the developers are working with fans to fine-tune it before it’s actual release, so you can try it out, and leave feedback on areas to improve upon.

So far it seems to be working perfectly fine. No bugs or glitches have been discovered in the mobile version of Shoot House so unless that changes, we’ll most likely see it in a future season of CoD: Mobile.
Season 1 already has a new map, so we don’t expect to see Shoot House appear anytime in the latest update. However, if Activision announce any new developments about this, we’ll be sure to update you.
