CoD Mobile Anniversary Season 11 – Patch Notes & Content

Published

on

It’s been one year since Call of Duty: Mobile officially released worldwide. The mobile title was one of Activision’s first massive pushes to bring Call of Duty to mobile in a way that was effective.

Now, one year later, the game is releasing its 11th Season to celebrate its one year. The new Season, Call of Duty: Mobile Anniversary, brings new content to both MP and Battle Royale, including new Battle Pass, Operators, map features, and more.

Season 11 Details:

Let’s get right to it.

Hit up The Club in the Anniversary Event

With the push of a button, Hidora Kai has unleashed a massive EMP attack, driving the Operators deep underground into hidden bunkers. When not out in the field, they make themselves at home in The Club, a new social and play space featuring mini-games, NPC missions, and more.

Welcome to The Club

Let’s get this party started. Choose from one of four custom made soundtracks as you explore the new area. Hit up the bar to watch some television while chugging down Juggernog, pick up mission tasks from NPC characters like Adler from the upcoming Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, and take a spin on the Anniversary Machine for the chance to earn special rewards.

There’s even more to uncover in the Club, too, though we’ll let the eagle eyed amongst you discover it for yourselves.

Earn More Rewards with Anniversary Machine

Earn Coins to spend on the Anniversary Machine simply by playing Multiplayer and Battle Royale and by completing tasks and mini games in the Club. Each spin awards Points, which at certain milestones will unlock new epic rewards like the Chicom – Starstruck weapon blueprint, the Merc 5 – Going Gold character skin, plus an epic weapon charm and calling card.

New Battle Royale Map

For all the Battle Royale fans out there, have we got a treat for you. For our Anniversary Season we’re adding a limited time second map with Alcatraz!

First seen in Blackout in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, Alcatraz challenges players to fight for survival in and around the infamous San Francisco Bay prison.

Alcatraz is a smaller map than Isolated, our original BR map, placing a greater focus on close-quarters engagements. Keep your head on a swivel and take advantage of the map’s verticality to get up high and rain destruction on your enemies below. Gather your loot fast, watch those corners, and be the last squad standing.

Keep your wits about you to earn new rewards like rare weapon camos and an epic calling card.

Earn More Rewards in the Anniversary Battle Pass

Anniversary adds 50 new tiers of free and premium content, including new characters, weapon blueprints, weapon charms, a new scorestreak, new weapon, and more. Here are some of the highlights:

Battle Pass Free Tiers

Reach Tier 14 to unlock the free Advanced UAV scorestreak — earn enough score to call out this bad boy and you’ll see not just the location of enemy players but the direction they’re facing, too. Progress to Tier 21 to unlock the Fennec SMG, a new functional weapon that features a blazing fast fire rate.

Premium Pass Tiers

Purchase the Battle Pass for the chance to unlock all 50 tiers of content in the Anniversary Battle Pass. Build out your Operator roster with Spectre – Pixel Spy, Reaper – Premium, Zero – Nebula, and Scylla – Future Vice. Take on enemies in style with weapons from the Anime style Neon series, and get right to business with the new Fennec using the Fennec – Verdant weapon blueprint.

New Multiplayer Maps, Modes, and More

The Anniversary Season kicks off with a new Gunfight and 1v1 Duel map, King, along with the return of the fan-favorite Halloween Standoff. We’ve got new Multiplayer modes, too.

New Gunfight and 1v1 Duel Map: King

The iconic map that helped launch Gunfight in Modern Warfare is now live on mobile! Match up in 2v2 Gunfight for tactical teamwork or go head to head in 1v1 Duel.

Will you race straight up the center platform to the enemy spawn, or take the side tunnel for a quick flank? Or will you trade shots across the side lanes, hoping for an early round kill? Whatever your plan, keep your sights up and your senses sharp.

Check out our Mobile Map Snapshot: King article for an in-depth guide to the map. See the Related Articles section at the bottom of this page for more details.

New Multiplayer Map: Halloween Standoff

A fan favorite from last year’s Halloween event, we’re happy to announce the limited time return of Halloween Standoff. This spooky nighttime version finds Operators battling in the streets amongst a full moon, haunted jack-o-lanterns, and other unsettling Halloween frights. Get your wits about you and join in the fight.

New Multiplayer Modes: Cranked and 10v10 Kill Confirmed

Originally appearing in Call of Duty: Ghosts, Cranked is Team Deathmatch with an explosive twist. Any time you eliminate an enemy player, a 30 second timer begins. During this time, you’ll enjoy faster movement and weapon handling, and your kills are worth double points. Though if you fail to take out another enemy within that time frame — Boom! Goodbye, Operator.

10v10 Kill Confirmed combines two fan favorite modes into one. Launching later in the Season as part of the Pumpkin Confirmed playlist along with more Halloween festivities, 10v10 Kill Confirmed will use pumpkins instead of the traditional dog tags. Good thing you’ve got a backpack to carry them all along.

Unlock the Tactician Perk in a New Seasonal Challenge

Coming later in the Season is the new Tactician perk, unlockable through completion of the Heavy Duty Seasonal Challenge launching on October 14. This one’s for the demolition crew, as Tactician grants a second tactical grenade or throwable. Enemy on the point? You’ve got the power to flush them out.

Call Of Duty Mobile: Best Loadout for the AGR 556 SMG

The AGR 556 is a formidable SMG in CoD Mobile. Here’s the best loadout for it.

Published

on

You have plenty of SMGs available to you in Call Of Duty Mobile. The AGR 556 is an incredible gun because of its short-range and medium-range combat capabilities. Here is the best loadout that you can assemble for it.

Call of Duty Mobile has a wide assortment of weapons for you to choose from. If you’re up for rushing into close combat, then you can’t do better than SMGs. They offer better mobility and speed than Assault Rifles, so they’re the ideal choice.

The AGR 556 is a reliable SMG that you obtain at Tier 21 on the Season 12 Battle Pass. This fully automatic submachine gun can deal damage with a high rate of fire and low recoil. However, there is definitely room for improvement, and certain attachments will help with that.

Best AGR 556 Loadout

  • Barrel: MIP Light Barrel (Short)
  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Ammunition: 60 Round 5.56mm Drum
  • Laser: OWC Laser – Tactical
  • Underbarrel: Strike Foregrip
  • Rear Grip: Granulated Grip Tape

The AGR 556 allows for a lot of mobility and has great range for an SMG. The only aspect that needs some tuning is the DPS, so we’ve prepared a loadout that prioritizes dishing out damage with minimal loss of movement Speed.

You can give the DPS a boost with the 60 Round 5.56 Drum magazine, while the Monolithic Suppressor will increase the Damage range at the cost of slightly reduced accuracy. The Strike Foregrip makes up for that and adds improved vertical recoil control to the SMG.

Combine this with the MIP Light Barrel (Short), and you’ll make up for the movement speed that you lost due to the Underbarrel. This way, you won’t get mowed down while running and gunning.

The Granulated Grip Tape will help further reduce bullet spread and the OWC Tactical Laser will allow you to aim down sights from a moderate distance. This makes it so that you don’t really need a scope or sight – especially since you’ll spend most of your time moving quickly during close combat.

Plus, the AGR 556’s iron sights already have you covered in that regard.

Best AGR 556 Perks

Now that the weapon is primed for dealing high DPS, you need also to prioritize movement speed. Along with the MIP Light Barrel, you should equip The Lightweight perk. This will give a 10% boost to your sprinting speed so that you’re harder to hit.

You can reduce the chances of foes hearing your movement by equipping The Dead Silence perk. If you still manage to take a hit, then The Toughness perk should help a bit by reducing the aim punch.

That sums up all you need to do to make the AGR 556 an ideal choice for close combat in Call of Duty Mobile. Get out there and drop some high-kill games with it!
