Call of Duty: Mobile Season 13 brings with it a new point-of-interest. Activision announced that the Battle Royale map will get a new snow-covered location to mark the holiday season.
COD Mobile Season 13 is almost here, and there’s a lot to be excited about. Every update brings new content, and the hype has grown since Activision recently confirmed that the highly-anticipated Diamond Camo will finally arrive this season. There will also be another interesting addition.
Most updates often include new locations as part of the content they bring along, and this is no different. We’re getting a new snowy point-of-interest in Season 13. This brand new area is being added to mark the holiday season, and the developers have given us a good look at what to expect.
New snow-filled area in CoD Mobile Season 13
Activision revealed this new area on the official Call of Duty: Mobile Twitter page. They posted a teaser image that features some snow, ski lifts, a lodge, and ski slopes. The developers also jokingly assured fans that no lift tickets will be necessary.
They didn’t reveal many details about what else we could find in this area, so this led to a lot of speculation. It’s possible that we might be able to use the ski lift to gain some verticality in the match, and a few keen players have noted that this location looks familiar.
Upon closer inspection, we can see that this area closely resembles the classic Downhill DLC map from Black Ops 2. At first, it seemed like that map would be making its return in CoD: Mobile season 13.
The developers noticed and immediately addressed this. They clarified that this area is actually from an updated section of the main Battle Royale map.
This winter wonderland will most likely be placed on the North-side of the Battle Royale map. It will reside in the Dormitory point-of-interest, but that can change at any point up to the release of Season 13.
The new update promises to be an exciting one. We’re looking forward to the new POI, along with the various other new additions in the season when it releases on December 21. We’ll keep you updated as we learn more about this location.

The Fly Swatter ability shows the locations of nearby winged enemies and increases the reload speed of the rocket launcher. This class was previously in Warzone and was used to get rid of enemies that were hiding.

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.
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
- 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.
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.
