Call of Duty Mobile Season 13 drops December 21st with a new battle pass, maps, battle royale changes and modes.

Activision has announced the release of the new Call of Duty Mobile: Winter War Season.

The newest Call of Duty Mobile update brings Season 13: Winter War at 4PM PT on December 21. Players should expect a new battle pass, the new Nuketown Russia map, a Holiday theme for Raid, Battle Royale changes, cosmetics, and new modes.

Here’s the rundown:

Snow Maps and Coming to Multiplayer

This season brings back two favorite Multiplayer maps, Nuketown and Raid, all decked out for winter with an abundance of snowfall and holiday surprises.

Nuketown Russia

First seen in Black Ops 4, Nuketown Russia sees the classic Multiplayer map moved out of the United States and set at a nuclear testing site in snowy Chernobyl.

Take up a position between the train cars and cut down enemies running through the street, or take your chances in one of the two buildings — just watch your back lest you get rooted from your perch at the second story window. Whatever tactic you use, be prepared to engage in heated close-quarters battles that are sure to get the snow sizzling at your feet.

Holiday Raid

The holiday spirit has arrived at your favorite luxurious getaway in Holiday Raid. The mansion and grounds are covered in snow and decked with holiday cheer.

But try not to get lulled into the extravagant setting, as the competition is sure to be fierce. Is that a present under the tree or the barrel of an enemy’s weapon? Lob out an explosive gift, just to be sure. 

New Multiplayer Mode – Grind

What better way to usher in the holiday cheer than with a new Multiplayer mode? First introduced in Modern Warfare, Grind combines the rules of Kill Confirmed and Hardpoint to create tactical chaos at its finest.

Confirm kills by picking up dog tags from fallen players and transport them to set locations around the map. Get taken out along the way and you’ll drop all of your collected tags, so keep your head on a swivel as you race to bank your points.

Earn More Rewards in the Winter War Battle Pass

In Season 13, get ready to see a bunch of new tiers of free and premium content, including new Operators, Weapon Blueprints, Charms, a new Scorestreak, a new functional weapon, and more. Here are some highlights you can expect:

Battle Pass Free Tiers

Reach Tier 14 and expect to unlock the free EMP Systems Scorestreak, which will have the ability to down and disorient the other team with an attack that disables enemy electronics, select attachments, tacticals, and Scorestreaks. And unless they have Hard Wired equipped, you’ll be able to disrupt the enemy HUD as well.

At Tier 21, you will be able to unlock the free Peacekeeper MK2 assault rifle, a new functional weapon originally seen in Black Ops 3. The Peacekeeper Mk2 will feature a unique double-row magazine. Expect this to launch alongside an Epic version in the Battle Pass.

Premium Pass Tiers

Purchase the Battle Pass for the chance to unlock 50 tiers of content in the Winter War Battle Pass.

Expand your Operator roster with new winter-themed character skins and expect to see some familiar CIA operatives drop in with the Premium Pass, including Golem — Siberia.

Also expect to see the Premium Pass add several new blueprint weapons to the mix as well, like the GKS — Pack Warrior. With the Winter War Premium Pass, you’re ready for every engagement no matter the weather.

Shred the Slopes in Battle Royale

Ski Town just got a lot more interesting with the addition of a rocket-powered snowboard to Battle Royale’s Isolated map. The snowboard can be stored in your character’s backpack for easy swapping between trudging up the slopes and breezing your way down, and can be used outside of the area. Perform tricks like 360° and 720° grabs to wow your enemies before sending them to the afterlife.

To accommodate the snowboard, expect to see Ski Town feature a traversable cable car and ski trail. See you on the slopes.

Seasonal Challenges and Events

Winter War features plenty of earnable rewards through new seasonal challenges and events. Lace up your boots for the Holiday Bonanza Event, featuring Holiday Raid and Winter Prop Hunt, and prepare yourself for the marquee themed event: On the Brink.

Compete in the On the Brink Event

The best way to beat your enemy is to know their strengths, weaknesses, and plans of attack. In this season’s main event, it’s your job to activate and deploy sleeper agents to infiltrate city centers.

Expect to activate new spies by playing Multiplayer and Battle Royale. On your way, you can unlock weapon sets that provide a recruitment bonus. Get the job done to earn new Epic items, along with an assortment of other Rare and Uncommon weapons and items.

Earn a New Weapon and Multiplayer Perk

Along with Winter War’s new seasonal challenges, you will see some great new rewards, including a new functional weapon and a new Multiplayer perk.

Complete challenges and expect to unlock the QXR, a new SMG that’s destined to shred your enemies, featuring a wide array of Gunsmith attachments to help you launch perfect close-quarters attacks.

You can also earn the new Restock perk to bombard your enemies with lethals and tacticals. Restock recharges these items over a 25-second period, including the Combat Axe for even more sick trick shots.

A New Mythic Weapon Coming Soon

To cap it all off, expect a new Mythic Weapon to be released in Season 13. This strong Blueprint weapon uses the PeaceKeeper MK2 at its core, but that core is an exquisite weapon and unique design made of meteorite compromised of ice and magma. The bullet is wrapped in magma, which creates a bullet tracer filled with hints of red, yellow, and something alien. This Mythic Weapon will bring with it an array of brand-new customization options.

For those Zombies fans who have been there from the start, here’s a great way to reminisce and relive the Call of Duty Zombies experience we all hold so dearly.

Call of Duty Zombies is still around in today’s Call of Duty, surviving ever since the 2008 classic World at War that started that fan-favorite game mode.

Although a lot has changed since then, players still love the mode, and what better way to bring back good old memories than this video showing the evolution of Zombies.

Call of Duty Zombies Evoltuion List

The video is by Evolution List on YouTube, a channel dedicated to showing the evolution of various games that have stood the test of time.

In the video, fans are given a walkthrough of Zombies from 2008 all the way to 2021, with Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War being the latest entry in the high-profile Call of Duty franchise to feature a Zombies game mode that recently saw its newest map, Mauer der Toten, added in the Season 4 Reloaded update.

Although the video is fairly short, spanning only 5 minutes, viewers are given one classic Zombies map from each Call of Duty game that possessed Zombies.

Although the mode was mostly in Treyarch-developed Call of Duty games, there have been many variations of the mode, with the video also including WWII’s Zombies, Advanced Warfare’s Exo Zombies, CoD Mobile’s Zombies, and Infinite Warfare’s Zombies.

Some of the classic maps showcased include:

  • World at War’s Nacht der Untoten
  • Black Ops’ Five
  • Black Ops 3’s Shadows of Evil
  • Black Ops 4’s IX

Of course, there are many other maps shown in the video, but we don’t want to spoil it all!

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.

Published

Battlefield Portal and Modern Warfare 2

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.

Battlefield Portal vehicles

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.

Published

black ops 3 nacht der untoten

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.
