Expect Halloween updates to many aspects of the game, as well as spooky cosmetics in the store and Battle Pass.
New CoD: Mobile Season 9 maps
CoD: Mobile’s developers have revealed that Season 9 will bring Modern Warfare (2019)’s Hovec Sawmill and Halloween Standoff.
Hovec Sawmill was a brand new map for Modern Warfare, taking place in a small village with a burning Sawmill in the center. With several accessible rooftops, you’ll need to keep your eyes up. And for CoD Mobile Season 9, the Hovec Sawmill will be a night map, matching Nightmare’s spooky aesthetic.
Halloween Standoff also returns in Season 9, which is fast becoming a tradition for CoD Mobile. This new update gives the classic Black Ops 2 map an eery overhaul, with pumpkins and other Halloween decorations littering the nighttime version.
The devs also teased that “a surprise mystery lies ahead,” so we’ll need to wait and see what 2021’s version of Halloween Standoff has in store.
New CoD: Mobile Season 9 weapons
Call of Duty fans will be quick to recognize Nightmare’s new weapons, with CoD Mobile Season 9 bringing the Thumper and the Swordfish.
The Thumper Grenade Launcher has featured in several Call of Duty games and is sure to be a powerful addition to the new season.

And Black Ops 4 players will recognize the Swordfish, a four-round burst Tactical Rifle that’s low recoil allowed it to chew through enemies with ease.
New CoD: Mobile Season 9 Tactical Weapon, Operator Skill & BR class
CoD: Mobile Season 9 also brings a new Tactical Weapon, Operator Skill, and Battle Royale Class.
The Flash Drone Tactical Weapon acts as a long-range flashbang. Players take charge of a drone that will completely blind enemies it comes into contact with. Devs said that it can be released at a distance “of about 15 meters” and has a range of “about 20 meters.”
The new Operator Skill, TAK-5, is set to be a game-changing addition to multiplayer. The TAK-5 immediately heals the full team, including the player, to full health. And not only that, but each player gets an additional 50 health.
And finally, CoD: Mobile’s battle royale gets the new Pumped class. This gives players a small jetpack that allows players to jump higher and even double jump. Plus, weapons are more accurate while in the air.
CoD: Mobile Season 9 Battle Pass
CoD: Mobile devs confirmed that the TAK-5 will arrive in the Season 9 Battle Pass alongside either the Thumper or Swordfish.
We expect there to also be plenty of Halloween-themed cosmetics in the Battle Pass, so we’ll keep you updated when the season goes live.
Undead Siege returns in CoD: Mobile Season 9
CoD: Mobile fans were clamoring for the Zombies mode to return, and Season 6’s Undead Siege brought a new twist to the classic experience. The Zombie-slaying action returns in Season 9.

In Undead Siege, players need to survive either three or five nights, defending Richtofen’s Control Center from wave after wave of the undead.
Undead Siege returns in Season 9 for the Nightmare Halloween event, and will likely last until the end of the season. Devs teased that “there are some new rewards to earn and new challenging zombie behavior to conquer.”
And that’s everything we know about Call of Duty: Mobile Season 9! We’ll update this post when Activision releases the full patch notes.

Completing the Gun Master Medal conditions in CoD Mobile will reward you with some exclusive items, and this little guide will tell you what you need to do.
The Gun Master Medal is one of several tricky medals for players to earn in CoD Mobile, but achieving one does earn players some nifty rewards.

Now, the Gun Master Medal isn’t as difficult as the Relentless Medal in Call of Duty Mobile, but it can still be quite difficult to achieve.
You don’t need us to tell you that this isn’t the easiest thing to do, and could take quite a few goes to accomplish. Sadly, there isn’t a definitive way to go about doing this, and will just solely rely on your skill as a player.
It can be done on any of the game’s BR maps, and the only real thing we can recommend is making sure you get your loadout as early as possible and being cautious. Obviously, not too careful, otherwise you could potentially end up winning, but not get 8 kills.
Even seasoned CoD Mobile players might have a tough time going for the Gun Master Medal, but hopefully, this guide will stand you in good stead.
Also, check out the best guns in CoD Mobile to see what could make this medal more attainable!

How to unlock Diamond & Damascus camos in CoD: Mobile
Find out how you can unlock and apply Diamond camo and Damascus camo to your guns in CoD: Mobile Season 8.
Diamond and Damascus are two of the most desirable camos in CoD: Mobile, and here’s how you can get your hands on them in Season 8.
Proudly displaying a stunning camo is representative of all the hard work you’ve had to put in to be able to show off such a fine piece of art. Even if you have a bad game of CoD: Mobile, at least you’ve been able to die with style!
This is why it’s important that you’re armed with the knowledge to unlock both Diamond and Damascus camos for your weapons in Call of Duty’s handheld version. These Mastery camos are not straightforward, will require some work, but will reward your efforts in Season 8.
Here is how to unlock Diamond and Damascus camo in CoD Mobile.
How to get Diamond Mastery camo in CoD: Mobile
Dispensing with the usual nature of progressive camos and accumulating them all to unlock the overall granddaddy camo – Diamond – there are actually separate challenges for you to complete to unlock it.
This is what you’ll need to do to acquire Diamond camo for CoD: Mobile:
- Assault Rifles: 10 kills per match for 150 matches (Must do this for ALL Assault Rifles)
- SMGs: 10 kills per match for 120 matches (Must do this for ALL SMGs)
- Sniper Rifles: 10 kills per match for 120 matches (Must do this for ALL Sniper Rifles)
- LMGs: 10 kills per match for 120 matches (Must do this for ALL LMGs)
- Shotguns: 10 kills per match for 120 matches (Must do this for ALL Shotguns)
- Pistols: 10 kills per match for 80 matches (Must do this for ALL Pistols)
- Melee: 500 total kills with each melee weapon
- Launchers: 100 UAV takedowns with each launcher
As you can see, it’s quite a hefty amount of kills and hours that you’ll need to sink into CoD: Mobile, but if you manage to do so, then you’ll be handsomely rewarded with Diamond camo that you can slap on something like the Renetti or PP19 Bizon.
How to get Damascus Mastery camo in CoD: Mobile
Damascus is more attuned to the camo unlock requirements of previous Call of Duty games in which you need to acquire the Platinum camo for every weapon to get your hands on the ultimate camo.
Getting Platinum means getting Gold camo for every weapon, and to get Gold camo, you’ll need to get every other camo available.
You need Platinum camos for all of the following:
- Assault Rifles
- Submachine Guns
- Sniper Rifles
- Light Machine Guns
- Melee weapons
Once more, this will be very grindy and take you a while to complete. Attaining Platinum camo for one set of guns can be strenuous enough, and usually determines whether you’ll end up doing them all.
But just remember why you’re doing it, that shiny, pretty Damascus camo to apply to all the best guns in CoD Mobile!
