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.

Call of Duty Activision accounts are regularly subjected to theft and hacking, so our guide seeks to help you reclaim stolen CoD accounts, plus we have some other useful methods to keep your account secure and safe.

Whether it’s issues with Call of Duty’s servers, cheating, or the Black Ops Cold War and Warzone stores, there are always problems that need to be tended to. Regardless of the size and wealth of the company, it’s presumably always going to be hard to keep on top of everything.

But questions have been raised about Activision’s ability to restore stolen Call of Duty accounts and provide support to those players. Thankfully, there are various ways to try and reclaim your account, and also ways to protect it from falling into the wrong hands.

Activision Account Recovery for Call of Duty

Many people complain about their Call of Duty account being hacked and/or stolen in whichever CoD title they’re playing.

Players lose access to their data, and most importantly their CoD Points and any purchased bundles or cosmetics. But there is an official process that players need to go through for Activision to be able to take the appropriate action.

To begin proceedings to retrieve your account, you’ll need to contact Activision Support here.

It could take anywhere between 4-10 days for a response on average but maybe longer. This is reasonable given the large volume of queries that Activation presumably deals with on a daily basis.

Live chat & submitting tickets for a quicker Activision Response

Another solution you can try to speed things up yourself is to try and contact a member of Activision’s support team directly.

To do this, you’ll need to complete the following:

  1. Head to Activision’s ‘Support’ page
  2. Selection an option from “I need help with”
  3. Find one that allows you to “Submit a ticket” or will connect you to an advisor to help you personally

Two-Step Authentication CoD Account

If you’ve been successful in retrieving your Activision Account or just want to know how to make it more secure, then it would be wise to enforce Two-Factor Authentication.

It’s now a given to see Two-Factor Authentication across the industry to protect accounts across all forms of media. It’s safe, secure, and easy to protect your account.

Here’s what you’ll need to do to activate Two-factor Authentication for your Activision Account:

  1. Head to Activision’s Two-Factor Authentication page
  2. Click ‘Set up Two-Factor Authentication’
  3. Sign in to your account, if you haven’t made one then do so
  4. Download the ‘Google Authenticator app’ for your phone or tablet
  5. Scan the QR Code using the app’s scanner
  6. Enter the Authentication Code for the App
  7. Press to complete the process

Now you have a secure setup that only you should be able to access.

It’s understandable that players will be frustrated with Activision for not responding to their queries as they want their account back.

At the same time, there are millions of accounts spread across Cold War, Warzone, CoD: Mobile, and Modern Warfare, with potentially multiple questions per player.

Call of Duty Warzone Mobile: Release date, details, rumors

Activision has hinted that Call of Duty: Warzone could be set for its own individual game on mobile. We have all the latest news, dates, and rumors.

Despite the massive success of CoD: Mobile, Activision is looking to bring a fully-fledged version of Warzone to mobile phones separately. Here’s all the latest on a handheld version of Call of Duty: Warzone, including its potential release date, new information, and more.

Activision’s domination of the first-person shooter market doesn’t seem to be enough, as they are allegedly looking to expand their repertoire of Call of Duty games. Currently, Activision has Modern Warfare (2019), Black Ops Cold War, Warzone, and CoD: Mobile as currently supported options.

The untitled Call of Duty 2021 project is still in the pipeline, and now it seems like we may be getting another mobile CoD game. Their free-to-play battle royale experience has proven to a big winner for the company, and now Activision wants Warzone on mobile.

Here’s everything we know about Call of Duty Warzone: Mobile so far.

Call of Duty Warzone: Mobile release date

Given how new the recent revelations are, it seems that it’s far too early to tell when Call of Duty Warzone: Mobile could be made available for download.

It was back in March that Activision sent out a survey asking Call of Duty: Mobile players if they’d like to see Verdansk come to the much-played handheld CoD game.

So it’s entirely possible that the game has been in development for some time. There’s also the obvious positive in that Warzone already exists, so they already know what works, what doesn’t, and how to transition it to handheld devices.

Furthermore, Call of Duty battle royale is already available to play on phones thanks to CoD Mobile.

Call of Duty Warzone: Mobile details

The topic of conversation was really put under the spotlight when Activision announced in a LinkedIn post that, “Activision Mobile has put up new roles! Teams are focused on Live Operations and content expansion across CoD Mobile and Warzone.”

The official website is advertising for over 50 roles with many geared towards “a new mobile title.” It’s possible that Activision wants this knowledge to become more public to counteract the recent announcement from rivals EA / DICE that Battlefield Mobile is on the way.

If we go even further back to September 2020, we can see that Activision was recruiting for an “Executive Producer, Features” for a project called “WZM.” This further supports the idea that they’ve had this idea in the pipeline for some time.

June 7, 2021 saw a new job listing for a Mobile Producer at a new Mobile dedicated development studio appear with the job listing stating that the role will be working on a “new AAA mobile game in the Call of Duty franchise.”

It has not yet been confirmed that this role and new studio will be working on the rumored Warzone Mobile game, but it would make sense considering that it fits the bill for being a AAA game in the franchise.

News, and even rumors, are very scarce on the potential Call of Duty Warzone: Mobile project right now. But as always, once we start hearing more news then you can read it here first at Charlie INTEL.
