CoD: Mobile Season 2 changes

With Season 2 of Call of Duty Mobile finally underway, there are a ton of brand new additions to the battle royale, and the developers have detailed these changes for the fans.

CoD Mobile’s Season 2 update brought a ton of new maps, modes, characters and weapons, to the game. Many of these changes were mentioned in the patch notes, but there are a few others that caught players by surprise.

You will be able to discover all of these changes for yourself after jumping into a match of the battle royale. The developers broke these down in a recent community update, and we’ll go through everything they revealed.

CoD Mobile Season 2

New CoD Mobile BR mode: Tank Battle

Season 2, titled Day of Reckoning, will add two new game modes to CoD Mobile, one of which is Tank Battle – arriving on March 19. Activision made it clear that it’s “unlike anything [they’ve] had before in the game.”

While details are scarce, it’s clear that it will focus on tank warfare and players will be able to call in their own tanks through a new mechanic.

You’ll have to collect pieces of a tank in order to build it, and then use it against your opponents in battle. Since every player could have their own tank, we can expect a ton of explosive action from this mode.

Alcatraz is now a temporary map

One of the biggest changes in Season 2 is that the Alcatraz map will no longer be permanent. The devs explained that this is because it has a relatively lower player base than other locations in the battle royale.

“With any mode or map, the permanency of that solely relies on how much it is being played,” they stated. “While there is plenty of positive reception about Alcatraz, we no longer wish to keep it constantly active and are bringing it back to the limited time mode rotation.”

So, you’ll only be able to play in this map during specific periods of time. Luckily, the next opportunity is on April 9, so you’ll get to drop in soon enough.

CoD Mobile Season 2: Day of Reckoning schedule

Activision also provided the Season 2 playlist schedule in the community update. Currently, Blitz is in effect in the game until the arrival of the Tank Battle mode. Once it’s here, we’ll get three new game modes.

The final Season 2 playlist is set to end on April 16, which is most likely when Season 3 will go live. We’ve listed every available limited-time mode in the Day of Reckoning below:

  • March 10 – March 18: BR Blitz
  • March 19 – March 25: BR Tank Battle
  • March 26 – April 1: BR Sniper
  • April 2 – April 8: BR Warfare
  • April 9 – April 16: BR Alcatraz

New Call of Duty maps: Oasis and Coastal

In a tweet on April 3, the devs released a teaser video for Season 3’s new map, Coastal, which is already part of the Chinese version. This map has a similar aesthetic to CSGO and is sure to be a fan-favorite for Search and Destroy.

Another map being added is Oasis which is from Modern Warfare, and is set in a “luxurious desert hotel.” This medium-sized area “challenges Operators to battle it out across the hotel courtyard, spa, and parking lot, using every opportunity to outflank and outsmart opponents.”

The second game mode is Night Modes is from Modern Warfare, and has players fight in the darkness using night-vision goggles to see. The mobile version will give your goggles a limited battery life, and will arrive later during the season.

Best Man-O-War loadout for CoD: Mobile Season 2

Here are the best attachments and perks to run with Call of Duty Mobile’s Man-O-War Assault Rifle in Season 2.

Published

Man-O-War in CoD Mobile

CoD: Mobile’s Man-O-War is a dangerous Assault Rifle that comes with extremely high damage and impressive accuracy. Here are the best attachments and perks for it in Season 2.

There are various weapons in CoD: Mobile for you to choose from before jumping into battle. The Man-O-War Assault Rifle is at the top of our weapons tier list for Season 2, as it continues to dominate matches.

This compact weapon of mass destruction boasts impressively high DPS, manageable recoil, and almost precise accuracy, making it the best gun that you can carry in Season 2. You can further enhance it with our loadout.

Best Man-O-War attachments for CoD: Mobile

Man-O-War in CoD: Mobile
  • Muzzle: OWC Compensator
  • Barrel: OWC Ranger
  • Laser: OWC Laser – Tactical
  • Underbarrel: Strike Foregrip
  • Rear Grip: Granulated Grip Tape

Our loadout will focus on boosting the Man-O-War’s accuracy and effective damage range. We’ll start off with the OWC Compensator that will help reduce the Assault Rifle’s lateral recoil while also reigning in Vertical Recoil Control.

The muzzle will have the adverse effect of reducing the weapon’s ADS bullet spread accuracy, but we’ll make up for that by equipping the OWC Ranger barrel. This will also improve the effective damage range.

Equipping the OWC Tactical Laser will help with accuracy during medium-range engagements, and will complement the Man-O-War’s movement speed when using ADS. However, the laser can give away your location so be careful.

CoD Mobile's Man-O-War

The Strike Foregrip Provides vertical recoil control and increased accuracy when ADS’ing, but at the cost of a slight reduction in mobility. However, this is weapon already has the highest mobility, so this won’t matter much.

Finally, we’ll cap off this loadout with the Granulated Grip Tape to improve aiming stability and aim walking steadiness so that you’re able to pick off enemies from a distance.

Best perks to use with Man-O-War in CoD: Mobile

  • Red Perk: Lightweight
  • Green Perk: Toughness
  • Blue Perk: Dead Silence

Lightweight gives a 10% boost to your sprinting speed, which will allow you to get yourself out of intense combat situations quickly. If you do get hit, then the Toughness perk will reduce your flinch, allowing you to keep your aim.

Finally, Dead Silence will allow you to move throughout the map undetected. You can use this to your advantage and flank the enemy.

How to unlock the Man-O-War in CoD: Mobile

In Season 2, this powerful Assault Rifle will become unlocked once you reach player Level 52. You can get to this rank by jumping into various games of CoD: Mobile, and playing well in them. You’ll get there quicker by securing victories.

Best Man-O-War Alternatives in CoD: Mobile Season 2

If you haven’t unlocked the Man-O-War yet, or you’re looking for other options, there are plenty of other Assault Rifles to try out. The DR-H has a superb fire rate for an Assault Rifle and packs an incredible punch.

The ASM10 also comes with impressive rounds that are capable of obliterating your enemies with just a few hits.
