Activision has revealed that the newest Call of Duty: Mobile Season, Season 6 which went live on May 1 in game, is the game’s most successful season yet in terms of player count and overall game engagement.
In a community update on Reddit, the company has revealed a roadmap of what’s coming to the mobile game during this month, including another MP Map, new Battle Royale classes, and more.
The company has also released a roadmap for what’s coming to the game throughout the month of May, take a look at the Season roadmap:
Greetings Call of Duty: Mobile Community, we are back with our first community update of May and coming off the launch of Once Upon a Time in Rust. We started off this season with a western themed bang and the response from our players has been outstanding. You’ve made this seasonal launch one of the biggest, most exciting, and most played so far for Call of Duty: Mobile and we don’t aim to let up.
We have started the season by firing on all cylinders with the release of Capture The Gold, Kill Confirmed, seasonal challenges, Rust, and a brand-new Battle Pass. While all of that content is stellar, we have plenty more to come throughout the month.
For instance, we have new a Battle Royale class coming, a new tactical grenade, more modes, another map, some additional seasonal challenges, and more. The first of that “more” is the brand-new release a western themed event – Gold Rush, and it is live right now!
We’ll have all of the details below on that mode alongside the newest details for current events or anything launching in the next week. As per usual, let us know if you have any questions, comments, or feedback about anything mentioned in the update. Let’s get to it!
Here is the full look at most events currently running or coming soon in COD Mobile**:**
- 4/29 – 5/14 ~ 2v2 Showdown Mode (MP)
- 5/8 – 5/21 ~ Gold Rush Events begin
- Available in Kill Confirmed and Battle Royale
- 5/8 – 5/10 ~ Winner Bonus
- Ranked Mode bonus available every weekend in May
- 5/13 – 5/19 ~ Free For All mode (MP)
- 5/14 ~ New Seasonal Challenges
- The new SMG, the Cordite, arrives with paid and free options
- Every Thursday ~ CODM World Championship Qualifier weekend begins
*All Dates UTC
Gold Rush Event
This is our first in-game event tied to a seasonal theme and it is all about collecting gold! You’ll jump in Battle Royale or Kill Confirmed, collect gold, and then turn in that gold for unique rewards in our Events section of the main menu.
The specifics are explained clearly in the original trailer posted above, but for the quick and easy of it just play Kill Confirmed like you normally would, except now you have insatiable lust for gold bars, and in Battle Royale try to find specially marked barrels that may provide you with a treasure map.
The rewards for Gold Rush are varied and valuable. Here are a few of the standouts:
- Flowing Bronze series of BR class camos
- LK24 – Flowing Bronze
- M4LMG – Moonstone (Epic reward)
Good luck out there prospectors and make sure to take advantage of this event while it is running until May 21st (UTC). Plenty of time, but there are also plenty of rewards to collect.
A few days ago we released our first legendary of the month through the Frontier Justice Draw. On top of making you look great and thematically western, the Outlaw – High Noon has the ability to turn your enemies into mere particles. That weapon variant was released alongside Seraph – Tombstone, another epic character included in the draw. Check it out in action.0:000:16
On top of just wanting to show off these epic and legendary items, we also wanted to share some details about our first-ever weapon set. That is part of the draw and activates if you snag the following items:
- Knife – Natural Hunter
- Smoke Grenade – Natural Hunter
- Outlaw – High Noon
You’ll then find yourself with a weapon set bonus that not only provides a player XP bonus (towards your profile XP) but also a Gold Rush event bonus on any activities related to the event. We may implement weapon sets in other ways in the future, not just in draws, but they are a new feature to COD: Mobile and worth keeping an eye on.
Dust to Dust
This other brand-new draw is starting today on 5/8 (UTC) and provides some other unique and epic western themed items to acquire. Similar to the Outlaw – High Noon, RUS-79U – Dustkicker has the stylish and purely cosmetic ability to turn your enemies into dust.0:000:20
This draw also includes Scarlett, an epic character from the Black Ops series. You can snag a variety of other themed weapons as well, like the AK-47 Mirage, RPD-Mirage, and DL Q33 – Frontier. You can find this all in-game now.
You may ask, why are we talking about lucky draws in a community update? Our creative team made these great videos that show off the cool, themed seasonal items, and we felt that our community would love to see some more details and to see them in action.Feedback
Much of the feedback we are seeing coming since season launch is either about a few main topics or a massive variety of many other topics. We are picking a few of the most widely discussed ones here to focus on, but by no means does that mean that others are being ignored. We are regularly gathering feedback, sending it up the team, and sharing as much as we can.
Battle Royale Updates
This season has a few events and changes, which we’ve seen quite a bit of positive feedback already. Thank you for taking the time to do that, but we also have more substantial changes on the way and in particular in the next major update coming in June.
Speaking of which, we already have released a short teaser of that BR content this week included inside a video. We know some of you have already found this, but for everyone else best of luck finding that somewhere in this community update 😉. However, here is another taste of what is to come in June.
One thing we commonly see brought up after each release, especially for the dedicated folks who generally take the time to reach out with feedback, is that many people are at max player level. We’ve seen a lot of ideas suggested about how to solve this, like simply increasing the level cap, adding a prestige system, or using some other changes to provide more progression overall.
While we cannot say anything specific about this just yet, we do have systems being designed that will help with overall progression and at the same time we have discussed a variety of options for adding additional progression options for those of you eagerly waiting more grind. Hang tight and keep an eye on future updates for that.
On May 2nd, one day after these challenges had launched, we were already seeing a handful of players talking about how they loved these challenges so much that they’ve already completed all of them. First off, that’s impressive and clearly we may need to adjust to add more challenge to future ones.
However, we also just wanted to quickly mention that this isn’t it for the entire season and we do have more of these coming up mid-May with the Cordite. For everyone else, there is still plenty of time to complete them and to grab the Locus or Pharo, or any of the many other free rewards found through these new seasonal challenges.
That is all for this community update! We’ve had a truly excellent season launch and there is still plenty to come throughout May and of course in June with our next update & season. Don’t forget about the qualifier weekends for our esports tournament, the second weekend of qualifiers is going on now, and keep an eye out for news about the next stage of the tournament.

CoD devs reportedly working on “open world RPG” with Infinity Ward job listing
A job listing from Infinity Ward Poland hints at the Call of Duty developers working on a new open-world RPG.
A new job listing from the Call of Duty developers suggests that Infinity Ward’s Poland office is working on a brand-new open-world role-playing game (RPG).
Open-world video games are extremely popular because of the opportunities they provide to players for exploration of large and detailed maps, with titles like Grand Theft Auto 5 being extremely successful.
Now, a new job listing from Infinity Ward Poland appeared for a short while, suggesting that the Call of Duty developers are currently developing a brand-new role-playing game (RPG) with an open-world structure.
In a now-deleted job listing on the Infinity Ward careers page, Activision were looking for someone with experience making “non-linear narratives in open-world games” to work on a “narrative and cinematic experience in an open-world RPG.”
While the developers didn’t reveal what his project is about, the Narrative Director position in the post placed an emphasis on “story, characters, lore, and world-building” for the game that’s in development.
At the time of writing, it’s unconfirmed what exactly this “unannounced AAA project” is called, and one possibility is that it might be a new Call of Duty title as Infinity Ward have never released a game outside of that series.
It’s also possible that this open-world RPG might be an entirely new IP that has no connection to the Call of Duty franchise. We will probably learn more details as the game’s development progresses.
As exciting as this sounds, it’s worth keeping in mind that this is all just speculation based on the now-deleted job listing, and we’ll need to manage our expectations until Infinity Ward officially announce the game.

Biggest AAA video games coming in 2022: PS5, Xbox Series X, Switch, PC, Stadia & Steam
2022 is a huge year for video games and here’s all the biggest titles coming to PlayStation, Xbox, Switch, and more – with release dates.
2022 continues to be a massive year for video games. Between franchises such as God of War, Pokemon, and Harry Potter, the PS5, Xbox Series X, Switch, PC, and Stadia have some mammoth titles to host. Here’s a look into the biggest games and potential release dates.
The start of 2022 signaled over a year since the PS5, and Xbox Series X took video games to the ninth generation of consoles. Developers have had plenty of time to chew the fat and harness the power of the consoles to create immense AAA experiences.
There’s also plenty of mileage left for the Nintendo Switch, and of course, PC, Stadia, and Steam are always pushing the envelope.
With 2022 already delivering Horizon Forbidden West, Elden Ring, Pokemon Legends: Arceus, Rainbow Six Extraction, and Gran Turismo 7, the remainder of the year is also looking to bring the heat. Here’s a look at the top AAA video games coming in 2022.
PS5, Xbox, Switch, PC, Steam & Stadia video games in 2022
Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 release date: October 28
For the first in almost 20 years, the Call of Duty franchise will be breaking its annual release schedule in 2023. This means that players will be stuck with CoD’s 2022 title, Modern Warfare 2 for two years.
The 2022 iteration of the iconic franchise is set to be a direct sequel to 2019’s Modern Warfare. The game will be built on a brand-new engine, and the development of the game is being led by Infinity Ward. The Call of Duty team announced that Modern Warfare 2 will be released on October 28, 2022.
Gotham Knights release date: October 25, 2022
A Gotham City without the caped crusader is a strange thought, but that’s the threat that faces it as Bruce Wayne is dead. In Batman’s place, his former proteges need to step up and protect Gotham, batting away any threats of crime perpetrated by some of its most evil supervillains.
Featuring co-operative mode, players can take control of these plucky heroes and hopefully do Batman proud when the game releases on October 25, 2022.
Hogwarts Legacy release date: Holiday 2022
There have been many Harry Potter movie tie-in games, but there still hasn’t been an authentic RPG experience that lets you become your own wizard – until now.
Hogwarts Legacy will let fans worldwide finally live out their dream of attending Hogwarts, and the game allows players to select their House, the classes they do, and customize their character, all the while fighting monsters and completing quests.
God of War: Ragnarok release date: 2022
Players got a juicy look at the next epic adventure in Santa Monica’s God of War franchise during the 2021 PlayStation Experience. Kratos and Atreus are set to battle with Freya, possibly Thor, and their own demons.
God of War Ragnarok looks like it’s expanded upon the reboot to incorporate more NPCs, more spectacular gameplay, and a gripping narrative that will test the bond between father and son.
Final Fantasy XVI release date: late 2022
The hype surrounding Final Fantasy XVI is beginning to mount as we get deeper into 2022. It’s the collaboration between Square Enix and the combat designer of Devil May Cry 5, Ryota Suzuki that has fans of the franchise excited.
The developers have confirmed that they would release additional information about the sixteenth game in the mainline Final Fantasy franchise around Summer 2022. Hopefully, this will include a release date giving RPG fanatics something to look forward to.
Pokémon Scarlet and Violet release date: November 18
2022 is a great year to be a Pokemon fan. Shortly after the release of Pokemon Legends: Arceus, Nintendo wasted no time announcing their newest mainline titles. Pokemon Violet and Pokemon Scarlet will introduce players to the ninth generation of Pokemon games.
Nintendo has already shared details about the game including the implementation of open-world areas as well as the three starter Pokémon: Sprigatito, Fuecoco, and Quaxly. On June 1, a trailer confirmed November 18 as the official release date for Pokemon Scarlet and Violet.
Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 release date: delayed to 2023
It wouldn’t be a stretch to say that Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 could easily be one of the most anticipated games of all time.
Breath of the Wild took the world by storm in 2017 with its rich, expressive world that deviated from the conventions of traditional Zelda games. Many millions of copies sold later, and fans everywhere are desperate for the next chapter for Link in this gorgeous, sprawling version of Hyrule.
Unfortunately on March 29, 2022, Nintendo announced that Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 would be pushed back to a 2023 release date.
That completes our guide to the biggest and most anticipated video games that are due to arrive in 2022. For all the latest news and guides on these games and more, stay tuned to Charlie INTEL!

Activision’s in-game currency lets players purchase cosmetics for their characters, and we’ve got everything you need to know about CoD Points prices, how to buy them, and all the items you can spend them on.
Call of Duty offers a huge palette of extra goodies you can add to your game, requiring players to spend their own currency named CoD Points to acquire them.
CoD Points can be purchased using the menu systems in games like Vanguard or Warzone or through console marketplaces like the PS Store or Xbox Marketplace.
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 Vanguard and Warzone offering special Attack on Titan and Snoop Dogg skins as well as unique weapon Blueprints for popular weapons, it becomes easy to see why players would want to spend CoD Points.

CoD Points prices
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 others 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: $1.99 / £1.79
- 500 CoD Points: $4.99 / £4.31

How to 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.
There are four ways you can buy COD Points:
- PC players can purchase CoD Points on the Battle.net website
- PS4 & PS5 players can purchase CoD Points in the PS Store on their console, or on the PlayStation website
- Xbox Series X, Series S, or One players can buy CoD Points on the Xbox Marketplace on their console, or the official Microsoft Store website
- Select physical retailer’s stock vouchers and gift cards with a code that players can redeem for CoD Points.
Where to spend CoD Points
Spending your CoD Points is incredibly easy, with players able to purchase cosmetic bundles and Blueprints in the in-game store.
The stores are available in Vanguard, Warzone, Black Ops Cold War, and Modern Warfare, so you can kit out your Operator regardless of your preferred title.
Do CoD Points carry over across games?
The good news is that your CoD Points will transfer across your Call of Duty games, as they are linked to your Activision account.
Players who will still have CoD Points in their account from Vanguard don’t need to worry, as they will automatically be in your account when Modern Warfare 2 releases.
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.
It features 100 Tiers for players to smash their way through the course of a season, 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’ll be able to buy the Vanguard & Warzone Season 3 Battle Pass via a couple of different methods on April 27, 2022:
- 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.
