Call of Duty Online had been an extremely popular entry in the franchise in the Chinese region, but various issues and the rise in popularity of CoD: Mobile has led to the official announcement of Call of Duty Online’s future shut down in China.
One entry in the high-profile first-person shooter franchise that many players may not know about is Call of Duty Online, a popular game in China over the past six years since its official release in 2015.
The title was a mashup of fan-favorite content from previous entries in the Call of Duty franchise, much in the same way as CoD: Mobile currently is. However, a couple of circumstances has led to the official reveal that Call of Duty Online will be shutting down in China with players being pushed towards CoD: Mobile.
According to a report by China & Asia Video Game Analyst Daniel Ahmad, Tencent will be shutting down Call of Duty Online at the end of August.
Declining revenue and the lack of renewal for licensing for the franchise from Activision were the two main reasons for the decision by Tencent to announce the upcoming shut down of Call of Duty Online in China, according to Ahmad.
The official announcement from Tencent regarding the shut down of Call of Duty Online states that there will be a compensation event for Call of Duty Online players who transition over to CoD: Mobile, where they will be able to bind the accounts and receive a variety of rewards.
With CoD: Mobile having seen a great deal of success globally following its official release, it is not surprising to see Activision decide not to renew the Call of Duty Online licensing and instead push those players towards one of its main focuses in the franchise now in CoD: Mobile.
Tencent is also in charge of CoD: Mobile in China, so the growing popularity of the game in the region currently was likely to be one of the indicators that it is the perfect time for Activision and Tencent to stop support for Call of Duty Online and focus completely on CoD: Mobile.

This “reliable full auto assault rifle” is a “shining example of what scenarios assault rifles are generally made for with 4 shots kills and high headshot damage.” It’s set to arrive soon, so here’s how you can unlock it.
How to unlock the Kilo 141 in CoD Mobile
The Kilo 141 will be added to Call of Duty: Mobile during the week beginning January 24, 2022.
The developers confirmed that the Kilo 141 can be unlocked through the Seasonal Challenge – Kilo 141 – Locked & Loaded, which is set to release next week. We’ll be sure to update this piece once we know what requirement you’ll have to meet.
Best CoD Mobile Kilo 141 loadout attachments
- Barrel: YKM Integral
- Stock: No Stock
- Laser: OWC Laser – Tactical
- Magazine: Large Extended Mag B
- Rear Grip: Granulated Grip Tape

Best PPSh-41 loadout for CoD Mobile Season 1: Heist
Here are all of the attachments and Perks you need to build the best PPSh-41 loadout in Call of Duty: Mobile.
2022’s first Call of Duty Mobile season is here, with Season 1: Heist bringing new maps and weapons to the handheld shooter. The PPSh-41 is the latest weapon to arrive, so we have the best loadout you can run.
Call of Duty Mobile Season 1: Heist has finally arrived, giving mobile players plenty more content from previous CoD games. One of the standout additions is the PPSh-41, a classic WW2 weapon that’s appeared in numerous Call of Duty games.
CoD Mobile’s developers described it as “fantastic at close quarters and surprisingly decent at medium range combat as well.” We’ve got all of the attachments, Perks, and Equipment necessary to make the best PPSh-41 loadout.

- How to unlock PPSh-41 in CoD Mobile
- Best alternatives to the PPSh-41 in CoD Mobile
Best CoD Mobile PPSh-41 loadout attachments
- Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
- Barrel: “Banner” Heavy
- Stock: No Stock
- Laser: OWC Laser – Tactical
- Underbarrel: Resilient Foregrip
The Monolithic Suppressor barrel and “Banner” Heavy barrel will improve the PPSh-41’s range, allowing you to have a much more versatile loadout.
The OWC Laser – Tactical increases your accuracy while aiming and increases ADS speed, while the No Stock attachment further improves your mobility.
Unfortunately, the PPSh-41 has a ton of horizontal recoil, so you’ll find it bounces from side to side – especially when taking on someone at medium range. But, the Resilient Foregrip majorly reduces horizontal recoil, making it much more accurate.
Best CoD Mobile PPSh-41 Perks & Equipment
- Red Perk: Lightweight
- Green Perk: Quick Fix
- Blue Perk: Dead Silence
- Lethal Equipment: Sticky Grenade
- Tactical Equipment: Concussion Grenade
The best Red Perk for a CoD Mobile SMG loadout is Lightweight, which significantly increases your sprint speed. Then, Quick Fix allows your health to regenerate immediately after each kill. And Dead Silence is perfect for stealthily running up on your enemies.
We recommend the Sticky Grenade to damage enemies before you push in, and the Concussion Grenade will almost render them defenseless.
How to unlock PPSh-41 in CoD Mobile
You can unlock the classic PPSh-41 at Tier 21 of CoD Mobile Season 1’s free Battle Pass.

Best alternatives to the PPSh-41 in CoD Mobile
There are plenty of viable alternatives to the PPSh-41 in CoD: Mobile. The MX9 is one of the best SMGs in the game and the AS VAL is a close-range Assault Rifle that’s perfect for the confines of multiplayer maps.

It features 100 Tiers for players to smash their way through the course of Season 1, 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 Vanguard & Warzone Season 1 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.
