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.
They’ve also said that controller support is incoming to the game and more details will be shared early next week in a blog post.

*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.
Dr Disrespect explains how Battlefield 2042 could reignite CoD rivalry
After loving Battlefield 2042’s reveal trailer, Dr Disrespect explained how this year’s title could reignite the franchise’s rivalry with CoD.
Dr Disrespect has long been fed up with Warzone and the current state of gaming but believes Battlefield 2042 could bring back the rivalry with Call of Duty.
Herschel “Guy” Beahm IV, who streams under the alias “Dr Disrespect,” has been having a bad time with Warzone recently, saying that he’s “over” the game and might take a break from streaming if another game doesn’t come out soon. Lamenting the game’s audio, visibility, and the state of solos, Doc has said that Battlefield 2042 will be the competition Warzone needs.
In the mid-2010s, Call of Duty and Battlefield were the shooter franchises to buy, with both franchises putting out action-packed, cinematic trailers to rival the other game. After watching Battlefield 2042’s epic reveal trailer, streamer Dr Disrespect believes that the two franchises’ once-great rivalry could reignite.
Throughout Battlefield 2042’s official reveal trailer Dr Disrespect looked impressed throughout and said afterward, “They’re bringing showtime.”
“I’ve gotta be honest, that was a fantastic trailer man. Action-packed. Kind of reminds me of the old days to a certain degree. Remember when Call of Duty was putting out these big trailers and then it was back and forth between Battlefield…I feel like we lost some of that competition the past couple of years, I don’t know why…but I’m liking this.”
Although Doc enjoyed the cinematic trailer, he was quite disappointed that no gameplay was shown. He explained how he’s especially excited for the gameplay reveal on June 13, and here’s how to watch it.
Dr Disrespect has previously said he’s especially excited for a Battlefield battle royale, which he believes could emulate Warzone’s success and be the rival it needs.
While Battlefield 2042 won’t have a battle royale at launch, a recent report claims that 2021’s Call of Duty Vanguard will launch with a brand new WW2-themed map. The competition is set to be fierce at the end of the year, which can only improve both franchises.

Former General Manager of Call of Duty joins EA to lead Battlefield franchise
With all the hype surrounding the new Battlefield, EA have employed an ex-Call of Duty executive to help boost the franchise.
EA has appointed a new general manager for Battlefield 2021 as the hype continues to develop for the franchise’s future release.
There has been a lot of hype surrounding Battlefield’s future release, from supposed leaked images to the gameplay reveal teaser released recently.
It seems the community is longing for a new Battlefield game, with popular Warzone player Dr Disrespect even stating his excitement for it. A new Battlefield game would breathe life into the FPS genre, especially if it can compete with Call of Duty: Warzone.
It does seem that EA is taking steps to do this. Not only have there been leaks suggesting that the new Battlefield will feature Warzone-like weapon loadout customization, but recent news has revealed that EA has even employed an ex-Call of Duty general manager.
EA announced today that Byron Beede, the former Call of Duty and Destiny general manager, has been appointed as the new SVP and GM of the Battlefield franchise, which perhaps “signals a strategic, long-term commitment to the growth of the franchise.”
Beede played a huge role in the development of both Call of Duty and Destiny, even playing an integral part in the growth of Warzone and Call of Duty Mobile, which are extremely popular.
It is also understood that Bryan Beede will also be directing the new Battlefield Mobile entity set for next year as well as a new Battlefield game. However, it does seem Bryan’s overall focus will be on developing the franchise for future growth.
Beede left Activision and Call of Duty in April 2021, when Activision announced that Johanna Faries would take over as General Manager of Call of Duty.
IGN has reported that: “Beede will report directly to Respawn founder Vince Zampella, who took over as head of DICE LA last year. DICE Stockholm GM, Oskar Gabrielson, and EA European studios GGM David Rutter will see no changes to their positions.”
With all of these developments in the background, Battlefield fans will surely be even more hyped for the release and even the reveal, which is coming on June 9.
We aren’t sure what to expect for the future of Battlefield, but we are definitely excited to see where it goes. For more on the future release, stay tuned via Charlie INTEL and check out our article on Battlefield’s leaked alpha date.

Activision provides an update on and future plans for combating toxicity in Call of Duty
The Call of Duty community has received an update from the franchise regarding its current and future efforts to combat toxicity.
Activision has provided the Call of Duty community an update on its work to combat various forms of toxicity and its plans to make sure that the Call of Duty franchise provides a safe and fun gameplay experience for everyone.
Call of Duty is one of the biggest entertainment franchises globally and has grown to new heights recently with the release and support of Warzone, Modern Warfare, Black Ops Cold War, and Call of Duty: Mobile.
However, as with most online multiplayer games, some players, unfortunately, resort to engaging in toxic behavior that includes hate speech and harassment.
To combat this toxicity, Activision has been working to remove this kind of behavior from Call of Duty games and recently provided the community an update on the work it has been doing to accomplish it and what it plans to do going forward to be more effective in combating toxicity.
According to the update, over 350,000 accounts have been banned in the past 12 months for “racist names or toxic behavior based on player-submitted reports and an extensive review of our player-name database.”
The update also stated that new in-game filters had been implemented to catch potentially offensive user names, clan tags, or profiles. New technology to filter potentially offensive text chat and filters across 11 languages has also been implemented.
Activision also stated in the toxicity report that it would be working to improve in areas that will help “give players the tools needed to manage their own gameplay experience, combined with an enforcement approach that addresses hate speech, racism, sexism, and harassment..”
You can find these areas of improvement below:
- More resources to support detection and enforcement
- Additional monitoring and backend technology
- Scrubbing databases to bring systems up to current standards
- Consistent and fair review of enforcement policies
- Increased communication with the community
There is no doubt that toxic behavior can ruin the enjoyable experience that video games like Call of Duty are intended to provide to players. Hopefully, these efforts by the franchise will work in reducing instances of toxicity to a non-existent level.
