CoD Mobile dev explains why Dark Matter isn’t returning anytime soon

Despite being heavily requested, one of the CoD: Mobile devs have commented on why players shouldn’t expect Dark Matter anytime soon.

CoD Mobile players are desperate to get their hands on Dark Matter camo, but one of the game’s developers has explained why it won’t be returning any time soon.

Call of Duty Mobile has done an excellent job of becoming an all-encompassing FPS shooter on mobile, taking so much of the series’ best content and cramming it into one free-to-play package

There’s one key ingredient missing for some CoD fans though — a completionist camo like Dark Matter. Diamond camo is the only weapon skin like this in the game so far and was only added in the Season 13 update.

After being inundated with the same request repeatedly, one of the game’s devs finally decided to address the elephant in the room.

The only two guns in the game that have the distinction of being able to display Dark Matter camo are the ICR-1 and Razorback. The camo is extremely limited in comparison to Black Ops Cold War which allows players to attain the camo for all their weapons.

So to clear up some of the confusion and ambiguity surrounding the situation, the devs took to Reddit and explained.

“We also love the epic and well known Dark Matter camo. Traditionally it has been used more in a progression reward type of way, like Diamond or Damascus, but of course, here we’ve had it used in different ways. We aren’t quite sure on the future of that one as a result of that murkiness with it being an earned camo vs a paid camo. It may return in the future, but at the moment there aren’t any immediate plans to do so.”

So on the plus side, they’ve made it clear that they would like to see it reintroduced at some point as they recognize the popularity of the camo.

However, the camo isn’t going to be a progression-based camo like the console method of attaining it, meaning they are probably going to roll it out slowly for each weapon instead of slapping lots of microtransactions in people’s faces.

CoD: Mobile devs confirm Shipment coming to Season 2

Shipment, one of Call of Duty’s most famous maps, is set to make its mark in the upcoming Season 2 of CoD Mobile.

One of the originators of the tight, action-packed map is headed for CoD: Mobile Season 2, as confirmed by the game’s devs.

Did you even play Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare unless you strapped yourself in for a hectic game of Shipment? With constant waves of Air Strikes and Attack Helicopters, Shipment was always a map that went a million miles an hour, and then some.

Well, thanks to a tweet from the game’s official Twitter page, we have confirmation that the map is set to go one more round in Season 2 of CoD: Mobile.

We’ve been drip-fed new CoD: Mobile Season 2 information by Activision every once in a while, and it’s most certainly exciting times ahead for regular players.

It’s already common knowledge that Shoot House is on its way as a new map, there will be fresh weapons to use, and there are even hints of an Among Us-style game mode.

The news of Shipment though will certainly appease veteran Call of Duty players as the lineage of the map has transcended all expectations and featured in multiple CoD games since its original release.

In the Official tweet, we get a brief overview of the map and it certainly appears to be a faithful recreation of Modern Warfare 2019’s interpretation of the map. No grass, brightly-colored containers, and backdrop cranes all make up the scenery of a modern-looking Shipment.

Season 2 is expected to start very soon, so it’s still possible that between now and then we find out even more details about what we can expect.

If all this content wasn’t enough, it seems that CoD: Mobile’s already staggering array of game modes and maps could be set for a huge bonus with the possible addition of Warzone’s Verdansk map.

New CoD Mobile survey hints at Warzone’s Verdansk coming to battle royale

A recent CoD Mobile survey has hinted that the devs could be adding the Verdansk map to the game’s battle royale in the future.

CoD Mobile players were recently surveyed to see what content they’d like added to the handheld game in the future. One choice was “new battle royale maps” which included Warzone’s Verdansk map & Eclipse from Black Ops 4.

It’s no surprise that Call of Duty: Mobile has been a massive hit since the free-to-play game was launched. The CoD name has arguably been THE brand when it comes to first-person shooters in the last 10 years, and so it seems like a no-brainer to release it for free on mobile.

The game has received continued support since its release with new content being added all the time. A new Sniper Rifle and Game Mode are just some of the upcoming items being worked on for CoD Mobile. That may not be all thought it seems with an interesting new survey being posed to players insinuating that the devs have bigger plans.

CoD Mobile offers a wealth of different options for players to engage in with the usual fare of Team Deathmatch, Frontline, Gun Game, and much more. It also offers battle royale as an option too with the game currently offering two maps to choose from: Alcatraz and Isolated.

It seems though that this isn’t enough as the aforementioned maps, Verdansk and Eclipse, are being discussed as possibilities. The survey’s content was first made aware by the notable Call of Duty Twitter page ModernWarzone.

The Official CoD Mobile survey asked, “Which of these Call of Duty elements would you most like to see in Call of Duty: Mobile?”

In addition to this, there’s also talk of introducing a fully-fledged Co-Op Zombies mode into the game for players to gun down hordes of the undead.

CoD Mobile’s New Order season is already flourishing and the mini-Season 1 reboot is relentless in its goal to make this the most complete Call of Duty game ever.

It’s not too long until Season 1 finishes and CoD Mobile: Season 2 begins, so you’d have to imagine the hype train is going to gain momentum and keep announcing new content on the way.

SP-R 208 Marksman Rifle confirmed for CoD Mobile

The CoD Mobile Twitter account shared another Season 2 teaser on February 28, in which they announced that a familiar gun that will be making its way to CoD Mobile soon.

“Another new weapon is coming [in Season 2] and you might recognize it… can you guess what it is?” the account teased. Fans were immediately able to identify it as the SP-R208 from Modern Warfare 2019.

The devs confirmed that the mobile version of this rifle will become available next season. The weapon established itself as a solid pick upon its initial release, and many players often incorporated it into their loadouts.

While this marksman rifle’s pick rate has decreased in recent times due to the popularity of other stronger Warzone weapons, it’s still an ideal choice for long and medium-range combat due to its versatility.

You can run into battle with the SP-R, and use it to dish out some serious pain to your enemies from a distance. If you want to further improve the weapon, then there are a few select attachments and perks that you can equip, and you can check out the best loadout for it here.

Luckily, you won’t have to wait much longer to get your hands on it, as Season 2 is just around the corner. While the exact release date isn’t confirmed, we expect it to immediately follow the end of Season 1 on March 10.
