The Call of Duty: Mobile team has shared the latest Community Update for the game on Reddit late on Friday, November 15 providing fans of the game a look at what’s coming up to the title.
There’s a new battle pass stream of gear coming to Call of Duty: Mobile very soon, alongside new content drop for the game including Black Ops’ Summit map.

*All Dates UTC
On top of the in-game events, challenges, and everything occurring this week there has also been several new Call of Duty: Mobile blog posts since the last week Community Update
Earlier this week we had a post about all the different Operator Skills in the game. Whether you just want to know the basics of how a skill works or you want some tips you can find that all here.
A few weeks ago we used part of our Nov 1st. Community Update to address some of the questions and feedback related to the Halloween Lucky Draw. Tomorrow, we have the next iteration of that coming to the game: the Cosmos Chance.
Like we said last time, we are committed to making changes to this type of event to help you better understand how it works with a breakdown and the rarity of the included items. We have done the following:
- This rarity information can be found by clicking on the More Info button.
- In addition to the rarity information, we have also replaced XP cards and crates with more unique items.
Please let us know what you think of these changes, the new items (like Razorback – Cosmos), and what you’d like to see with similar events in the future.
Last week we mentioned Controller Support is coming out soon in an update and today we’d like to announce that you’ll be able to find all of that information early next week on our Activision Blog.
The blog post will provide information on what types of controllers are supported, the settings, and how to set that up. We’ll share that through our Call of Duty: Mobile social media and in several community areas once it is live.
Before we jump in, we’d just like to thank the many players out there who specifically answered our call last week for more feedback related to new operator skills, new content, limited time modes, and in-game events. After posting the Community Update last Friday we saw many players immediately respond to those topics and while we can’t respond to each of those individual posts, we greatly appreciate the discussion, feedback, and enthusiasm.
This week we have a few new topics to discuss, so if you are looking for previously discussed topics, like anti-cheat or bots, please refer to our other Community Update posts.
COD Mobile: Garena – Beta Test
One quick note, our South East Asia version of Call of Duty: Mobile is currently performing a test for an upcoming update and many of you have been posting about it in the community.
Garena does not always share the same content as COD Mobile and that beta may have content that is not complete or not part of the final build, but even with that in mind please think of your fellow players before sharing potential spoilers about new maps, new modes, or other content that is exclusive to that beta. Be kind to each other everyone.
Limited Time Modes
It’s been a little while since we’ve discussed limited time modes and we saw quite a bit of discussion this last week about Hardpoint, Gun Game, and Free For All. The purpose of limited time modes is to provide with new and frequently rotating options that provide you with a new experience while also not splitting the player base or affecting matchmaking.
With that said, if you like a specific limited time mode please do keep letting us know. If you truly want a limited time mode to become permanent here is how you can influence that:
- Play it a significant amount during its limited time availability
- Bother you friends to get them to play it as well
- Bother your clan and get them to play it as well
- Bother the rest of community on social media to both share your love of the mode and to get them to play it as well
TL:DR get everyone you can to play it and we will notice. Sure, threads and feedback always are welcome too, but most importantly show your unrelenting dedication by extensively playing that mode.
Just a reminder, while we are always looking for feedback in community spaces, you can also report that in-game (hint – look under the ? icon next to the messages icon).Bug Reports
This week we saw the same types of bugs being discussed in the community and this will basically just be a reminder of how to deal with a couple of the most commonly discussed issues:
Lastly, we didn’t forget about zombies mode! We are happy to announce that it is releasing on November 22nd (PST) alongside some other amazing content that we’ll be talking about next week.
Microsoft explain why Call of Duty will stay on PlayStation after Xbox exclusivity rumors
Microsoft have reiterated their claim that Call of Duty will remain on PlayStation and gave one simple reason why.
Both PlayStations fans and Sony itself have expressed concern over Call of Duty becoming Xbox and PC exclusive, but Microsoft have reiterated their claim that the games will remain on PlayStation, giving one simple reason why.
Microsoft announced their shock buyout of Activision Blizzard back in January 2022, with the deal set to close in Summer 2023. While Microsoft previously stated that there are no plans to make Call of Duty Xbox and PC-exclusive, Sony still expressed concern.
As reported by VGC, Microsoft responded to these concerns in a document sent to Brazil’s Administrative Council for Economic Defense (CADE). Here, they accused Sony of blocking games from Xbox Game Pass and reiterated that it “wouldn’t be profitable” to remove Call of Duty from PlayStation.
Microsoft acquired Bethesda back in 2021, and have already started making their games, such as Starfield, Xbox and PC exclusive. However, in this document, Microsoft insisted that Sony shouldn’t worry about Call of Duty being removed from PlayStation.
“Regardless of how unsurprising Sony‘s criticism of content exclusivity is – given that PlayStation’s entire strategy has been centered on exclusivity over the years – the reality is that the strategy of retaining Activision Blizzard’s games by not distributing them in rival console shops would simply not be profitable for Microsoft,” claimed Microsoft.
Microsoft gave several reasons why they wouldn’t remove future Call of Duty games from PlayStation, but it all boiled down to profit.
“The hypothetical adoption of any content discontinuation strategy would not be profitable for Microsoft and, even if implemented, such strategies would have no competitive impact, for the reasons described above,” concluded Microsoft.
There are also reports that there are contractual agreements that ensure the next three Call of Duty games will be on both Xbox and PlayStation. Rumors suggest that Call of Duty 2024 will be developed by Treyarch, and Activision have even teased a new premium game for 2023.

Huge Black Ops 4 campaign leak reveals scrapped ‘Career’ mode details & concept art
Black Ops 4’s scrapped campaign has reportedly appeared online in a huge leak showing off concept art and breaking down a ton of details.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 went against the norm by opting to skip a campaign, despite it reportedly being in development for some time. Four years later, a leak puts together a ton of information about the scrapped ‘Career’ mode which was set to be an online 2v2 experience.
While Call of Duty players typically enjoy the blockbuster campaigns, it’s arguably multiplayer that brings them back year after year. Despite rumors suggesting that a Black Ops 4 Campaign was in development, the game launched in 2018 without a single-player mode.
Now, almost four years later with Modern Warfare 2 on the horizon, a ton of info has dropped detailing exactly what Black Ops 4’s campaign mode could have been.
Reddit user Purpletoaster20 said this huge post in the GamingLeaksAndRumours subreddit was the result of “months of research & discussion with people who have inside knowledge of this mode,” and it includes images of internal powerpoints, concept art, and a detailed breakdown of each mission.
The campaign was dubbed ‘Career’ and would be an online 2v2 mode where players would “race to the finish” against the opposing duo, and whichever side won would affect how the rest of the session would progress.
Taking place in a post-Black Ops 3 2070, there would be “The Year of Chaos” after a pandemic and climate disasters would “heavily diminish the world’s resources.”
Each duo would pick their preferred faction, and then need to battle against AI to complete their objectives ahead of the other team. Plus, there would also be PvP sections with Blackout mechanics, where death would result in respawning back at a base near to the action.
This mode would have counted towards player progression, with each Black Ops 4 season adding several new missions for players to complete.
Four missions were “nearly complete,” and the Reddit user detailed them all in the Reddit post. In these missions, players had to complete Call of Duty-esque objectives such as blowing up convoys and hacking and defending terminals.
But why was this huge mode canceled? According to the Reddit user, it was “due to technical issues & the overall gameplay loop being described as too repetitive,” as well as the release being pushed forward by a month. They also claim that the leaked gameplay wasn’t from the campaign, but was actually from a Specialist HQ mode.
The Reddit user said they’ll be putting all of this information together in a 30-minute video on August 18.

Players share Call of Duty Next reveal wishlist for Modern Warfare 2 & Warzone 2
With the Call of Duty Next event set to showcase MW2 and Warzone 2, players reveal exactly what they’re desperate to see.
The upcoming Call of Duty Next event is set to deliver a full Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer reveal as well as new Warzone 2 information. Here’s what players are desperate to see from the event.
During Call of Duty Champs, the biggest competitive CoD event of the year, Activision and Infinity Ward brought Call of Duty Next to the community’s attention. This one-of-a-kind event that will be broadcast on September 15 is set to tease the future of the Call of Duty franchise.
The event will include a full Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer reveal, as well as new details concerning the Warzone 2 project and a mobile version of Warzone. With a ton of new information expected to shock the community, here’s what players are hoping to see most.
CharlieIntel took to Twitter to ask CoD players what they’re hoping to see from the highly-anticipated Call of Duty Next broadcast. While the details concerning Warzone 2 are shrouded in mystery, it’s safe to expect gameplay footage of Modern Warfare 2.
Keep in mind that Modern Warfare 2 is set to release on October 28, and with all eyes on Call of Duty Next, it’ll be a great opportunity to build some excitement. Some players in the replies had very specific expectations, while others wish to see more of the game’s technical aspects.
MW2 & Warzone 2 gun mechanism & gunsmith system

This is a great example of the technical side of Modern Warfare 2, and by expected association Warzone 2, that we’ve yet to fully discover. Gun mechanisms and how they feel while firing lay the groundwork for the game’s tone. Modern Warfare 2 Gameplay will likely be heavily influenced by how intuitive the guns feel in players’ hands.
Furthermore, the loadouts and the gunsmith feature are another vital technical aspect. While these aren’t the flashiest concerns, they go a long way in setting the foundation for a high-quality experience. After all, players love to customize and tweak aspects of the game when they’re not engaged in battle.
While we already have some major information about Modern Warfare 2’s gunsmith, including the ability to tweak certain attachment characteristics, hopefully, Call of Duty Next will provide even more insight.
Modern Warfare 2 Ranked Play
League play at launch— Sandy 🧚🏼♀ #BrickByBrick (@CallofSandy) August 9, 2022
While the gameplay is set to take center stage, it’s not beyond belief that Call of Duty Next could showcase various game modes. Perhaps the broadcast will mark the official reveal of the rumored DMZ mode.
However, fans of multiplayer will have their fingers crossed for something they’ve been wanting for what seems like ages: “League play at launch.”
Call of Duty fans looking for a top-tier competitive mode have been let down in recent years. Either they’ve had to wait months after release to receive a Ranked Play mode, or in the case of Modern Warfare, it came without Skill Divisions or an ELO system.
Classic Call of Duty weapons
This is the only right answer pic.twitter.com/RBuO5ovqRJ— FaZe Testy (@Testyment) August 9, 2022
FaZe Testy replying with an image of the iconic Intervention sniper gives us a specific weapon request. Surely, the Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer reveal is going to include gameplay footage. Of course, with gameplay footage comes the inevitable reveal of weapons.
It remains to be seen if classic Call of Duty weapons will feature in Modern Warfare 2, but players are surely going to lose their minds if the Intervention makes its way to the game. The Sniper is undoubtedly one of the most beloved weapons in Call of Duty history.
That just about wraps up some of the most intriguing hopes and wishes for the upcoming Call of Duty Next event. Don’t forget to tune into the broadcast on September 15 to find out if any of these desires come to fruition.
For more, check out how leaked Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer images seem to confirm that factions are back.
