The Call of Duty: Mobile team launched a brand new season of content for the game over the weekend, including a brand new Battle Pass, the debut of Soap into the game, and a new map Cage.
The new content is available now for all Call of Duty: Mobile players.
The Call of Duty: Mobile team has stated that they are moving away from having Season 3/4/etc and now doing themed seasons with names. The new season is called Disavowed.
The season brings the first new map called Cage, which is not in any other Call of Duty titles. There’s also an update on the Zombies mode, which is not good news for fans of that mode in the Mobile game – the mode will be removed in March.
Here’s the full details:
Greetings Call of Duty: Mobile Community, we are back again after going through hundreds and hundreds of comments over the last week. First off, thank you for embracing our approach to communicating those changes and our plans to improve a variety of aspects of the game in the near future. Your kindness, your feedback, and all of the discussions spurred on from that post have been absolutely wonderful to see!
Today we are back and excited with to share a brand-new season with you. Soap is back baby! We are moving away from Season 3, Season 4, etc. etc. and focusing more on uniquely themed names. With this March season we are calling it Disavowed.

Instead of the normal cadence, we want to instead focus on everything coming up today on March 1st (UTC) and everything related to this season. You’ll read descriptions not only from our community team, but also directly from developers and designers. Let’s first go through all of the major aspects of this event followed by some general announcement and news.

Battle Pass Highlight
With this brand-new Battle Pass we are happy to announce that we will have our first ever female operator in a Battle Pass, Urban Tracker, and the return of the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare series legend, Soap MacTavish.
Of course, that’s just the two main characters featured in the pass, there is also the savagely effective RUS-79U Viking, the Brambles series of weapons and gear, the MacTavish series of weapons and gear, and more. As per usual, there is both a free Battle Pass and a premium Battle Pass available with their own selection of gear to earn and acquire.
Spring Into Action – Limited Time Modes
For 24 hours we are bringing back both two of the most popular limited time modes: Jump into a chaotic 20vs20 team-based experience with Warfare in Battle Royale or the quick, deadly, and precision focused One Shot One Kill multiplayer mode.
CAGE Multiplayer Map
This is our first Call of Duty: Mobile original map and it is a close-quarters three lane battlefield contained within a contemporary construction site. This map is mirrored and the ideal battlefield for fast-paced close quarter skirmishes.
The map is designed in a way where there ‘perfect’ cover due to the verticality of the map, so be vigilant and keep an eye on your surroundings and not just what is right in front of you. Lastly, there are plenty of unique tactical advantages to be found and mantled throughout the map. Take a quick look at the flyby below and then try it out yourself.0:000:13
H.I.V.E. Operator Skill Highlight
This brand-new Operator Skill was once a Specialist Weapon in Call of Duty: Black Ops III, now makes its debut in Call of Duty: Mobile! This versatile weapon can be used for defense or offense. Release pods at doorways and block entry points or crowded routes, like when blocking off the routes to a capture point or use it aggressively to make an area a walking bee-field of deadly pods.
Starting today, you’ll be able to earn this skill by completing various Multiplayer based objectives: login, play MP matches, use other operator skills, take out enemies with scorestreaks, or just get general kills. The skill will be available to earn until March 11th (UTC).
Credit Store Update
While it seems like only a short while we last talked about the credit store updating with fresh new gear, we are back again today with another update! Like we mentioned last week, we are committed to frequently updating the store and in providing a variety of ways to earn or grind for new gear. With this update we have the following coming to the store:
- · Scorestreak: MQ-27 DRAGONFIRE
- · Shotgun: HS0405 – Ukiyo-e
- · Assault Rifle: AK-47 – Metal Note
- · Assault Rifle: AK117 – St. Patrick’s Day
- · SMG: MSMC – St. Patrick’s Day
One of the most frequently asked questions to these updates is “what about ZOMBIES Mode?” Today, after extensive evaluation we are sharing that ZOMBIES Mode is being removed on March 25th.
We had always mentioned it was limited but with no explicit end-date. We wanted to see the reception, see the feedback, and see how we can potentially shape the mode for the future. However, the mode just didn’t reach the level of quality that we desire. The second map, Nacht Der Untoten, is also not releasing in the global version.
We may bring the mode back, with Nacht Der Untoten, once we can make sure it is high enough quality, but for now we’ll focus on development for Multiplayer, Battle Royale, and Ranked Mode.
Hardpoint Becomes Permanent
Last week after our community update, we saw a huge response to our call for feedback and specifically about Hardpoint. Today, we are thrilled to announce that based on community feedback and in-game participation (when the mode was previously available) that Hardpoint is now permanent!
You can find the mode available today in core Multiplayer and in Ranked mode. However, in Ranked Mode you’ll have to rise to the rank of Elite before you can participate in Hardpoint. Well done everyone, you did it!
Call of Duty players want a Battlefield Portal inspired mode in the future
After FPS fans were blown away by Battlefield Portal’s reveal, Call of Duty fans want to see a similar mode in the future.
Battlefield 2042’s REDACTED mode was finally announced at EA Play: Battlefield Portal. This is a hub for content from previous Battlefield games, and Call of Duty players want to see a similar mode in the future.
Like Battlefield, Call of Duty has depicted various theatres of war over the years, both real and fictional. Although Battlefield 2042 is set in the near future, as a throwback for long-time fans of the franchise, they’ve included Battlefield Portal.
This brings weapons, maps, vehicles, and more from Battlefield 1942, Bad Company 2, and Battlefield 3 into one, ultimate sandbox experience. Impressed with the new mode, Call of Duty fans have been asking for a similar experience.
Call of Duty fans have been desperate for remasters of their favorite games from the franchise, with Modern Warfare 2’s multiplayer being the most prominent. Black Ops Cold War is chock-full of maps from Black Ops 2, but players still want to see more content from the games they grew up with.
Battlefield 2042 found the solution to this with their new Portal mode. With access to a ton of content from previous Battlefield games, players can create almost any custom game mode they can dream up.
“And that’s how you incorporate remastered content into your game,” said renowned industry insider Tom Henderson after seeing the reveal. He followed this by theorizing that Call of Duty will create something similar in the “next 5 years.”
His theory was met with resounding excitement, with many Call of Duty players wanting to see their favorite multiplayer and Zombies experiences return in the same way.
Battlefield Portal “truly could be the next BIG THING for creators,” said popular YouTuber Chaosxsilencer. “Imagine a Call of Duty Portal with BO2, BO3, WaW, MW2, MW3 assets all usable and customizable.”
“The custom game options available with #BATTLEFIELD2042 and the Battlefield Portal are amazing. So many options and ways to be creative and have fun,” said Call of Duty news account ModernWarzone. “@RavenSoftware we need things like this in Warzone, especially with Battlefield announcing this today.”
With how extensive of a backlog Call of Duty has, it’s very likely that Activision will take inspiration from Battlefield’s exciting new mode – and the demand for it is certainly there.
If you can’t wait to play Battlefield 2042, you can check out how to get access to the Open Beta in September.

Zombies World Record beaten after nearly 300 hours of Call of Duty: Black Ops 3
It took one Twitch streamer nearly 300 hours of gameplay to beat the World Record for Black Ops 3’s Nacht Der Untoten Zombies.
One player has done the unthinkable and beaten the Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Nacht Der Untoten Zombies World Record by reaching round 255.
Zombies has a storied history dating all the way back to 2008 when Call of Duty: World at War came bundled with a bonus mini-game called ‘Nacht der Untoten.’ The legendary Nazi Zombies mode would go on to reach ridiculous levels of popularity to the point that Treyarch had to make extra Zombies maps.
Since then, virtually every single CoD title has included new versions and variations of the Zombies formula. Black Ops Cold War is currently enjoying the launch of Mauer Der Toten, the freshest Zombies experience.
However, one Twitch streamer has overlooked modern Zombies in favor of a previous game – Black Ops 3. After 20 days of playing the same game of Nacht Der Untoten on and off, a new World Record was set.
The feat was accomplished by CoD Zombies Twitch streamer TomPhantasy as he smashed the previous record by a staggering 40 rounds to reach Round 255.
Beginning his run on July 2, he spent the next 20 days clocking up nearly 300 hours of game time to obliterate the previous Nacht Der Untoten record.
Remarkably, he was only downed twice, and they both came once he’d surpassed the record figure anyway.
The final seconds of the footage are of the streamer clearing up the last few dregs of Zombies until the round icon in the bottom-left changes to 255.
This absolutely smashes the previous record of 216 rounds set by user Chihiro-516, and may never be beaten.
Dexerto was even able to secure an exclusive word with the streamer to get more reaction to his feat: “The Zombies community has been supporting me for months when I have been attempting this record through the highs and lows,” he said.
He continued: “I knew I had to keep going, because after 24.8 days the game freezes, This meant I had to play 13+ hours per day for those 25 days.”
Massive congratulations need to go to the player who was able to gut his way through an arduous three weeks of Zombies. With Mauer Der Toten very much the new Zombies craze, we wonder if he will one day attempt to set the record for it.
Also, for some more incredible accomplishments, check out the Cold War player who reached 10th Prestige without killing a single player.

How much are COD Points? How to buy, price, how to spend & more
COD Points are the currency of Call of Duty. Here’s a guide on their price, how you can buy them, where to spend them, and what you can buy.
COD Points have become an integral part of Call of Duty games as they can buy some great cosmetics and other items to show off. So here’s a quick guide to tell you how much points cost, how you can buy them, where you can spend them, and what you can get.
The gaming landscape has changed over the years with the incorporation of microtransactions and live-gaming services. Many games offer extra content – with cosmetics being a big proponent of this. With Cold War and Warzone offering special Rambo and John McClane skins and bringing back legendary Operators like Soap and Captain Price, it becomes easy to see why players would want to spend COD Points.
Call of Duty offers a huge palette of extra goodies you can add to your game and requires COD Points to do so.
So with our detailed guide today, we’re going to run through the basics of COD Points to help you understand them, tell you what they do, and more.
What is the price of COD Points?
There are different amounts and bundles you can opt for when buying COD Points that are tailored to different needs.
Some players just need to top up their account with a few hundred points to get the latest bundle. Whereas some need a big restock with the intention of spending many points. The more points you want, the bigger the discounts grow.
Here are the different prices for the various COD Points bundles:
- 200 COD Points for $1.99 or £1.79
- 500 COD Points for $4.99 or £4.31

How do I buy COD Points?
You can be very flexible with how you buy COD Points as there are a few different ways to do so. To make sure you’re buying them for the right platform, just double-check with our guide on transferring COD Points across platforms.
These are the various ways you can procure COD Points.
This method is only for PC players.
A quick visit to the Battle.net shop will take you to the aforementioned COD Points bundles, and you can take your pick.
This method is only for PlayStation players.
Head to the PlayStation Store either on your PS4, PS5, or on the Official website and you’ll find the same selection of COD Points bundles.
You will be able to purchase them using money or PSN credit.
Xbox Microsoft Store
This method is only for Xbox players.
Head to the Microsoft Store either on your Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, or on the Official website and you’ll find the same selection of COD Points bundles.
You will be able to purchase them using money or Xbox Gift cards.
Online or select physical retailers will have copious amounts of COD Points vouchers and gift cards for you to purchase. There will be no difference between official sales and retails sales as they will all sell the same bundles.
Where do I spend my COD Points?
Now that you have a nice bundle of COD Points, where do you actually go to spend them? Well, the answer is rather simple: head to the in-game store for the game you’re playing, browse, and buy.
What can I buy with COD Points?
Call of Duty’s currency is used to primarily buy two things: the Battle Pass for the current season and Bundles containing a variety of items.
A Battle Pass is a paid Tier system that allows regular players to earn dozens of extra rewards and cosmetics for essentially playing the game.
Black Ops Cold War and Warzone are currently in Season Two of their respective lifecycles at the moment. Both titles are currently running in tandem with each other and share the same Battle Pass.
It features 100 Tiers for players to smash their way through the course of Season 2, and if players are committed enough, they can actually earn enough COD Points, through leveling up the pass, to get the next one for free.
You can buy the Cold War & Warzone Season 4 Battle Pass via a couple of different methods:
- Purchase it from the Official Call of Duty website
- Buy it from the in-game store on your respective platform
The other main content you can buy is a wide range of Bundles and Operator Bundles. These special bundles vary in price, and each comes with its own unique items.
The collectibles you can expect to find are Calling Cards, Emblems, Operator Skins, Weapon Blueprints, Weapon Charms, and more.
