Call of Duty: Mobile’s first new season of 2021 kicks off on January 26 with a variety of new MP & Battle Royale content for all players jumping into the action.
The new season begins at 4PM PT on January 26, 2021 on iOS and Android with the latest update for the Mobile game.
In new a blog post on the Activision site, the team has detailed what fans can expect in terms of new content coming with Season 1 New Order. Activision switched the season naming scheme back to Season 1 for Call of Duty: Mobile starting in 2021 to avoid having un-ending season numbers for the game in the future.
The new Season is highlighted by a brand new, original map, new Battle Pass cyberpunk themed skins, the SKS weapon, and more new modes across MP & Battle Royale.
Call of Duty: Mobile will also feature the Fight for Humanity event, with new seasonal rewards as part of the limited time event.
Let’s break down the new content as part of Season 1 New Order.
New Order comes with a brand-new Battle Pass featuring 50 tiers of free and Premium content including new characters, new weapons, Blueprints, charms, and more.
Battle Pass Free Tiers
New Order brings two new weapons to the mix, including the FR. 556, a free base weapon unlocked at Tier 21. This assault rifle packs a mighty punch, and performs well at medium-to-long range. In fact, the FR. 556’s burst fire capability makes it a surprisingly good weapon for long-range fights.
There are lots of other free items to unlock, including the Operator Skill – Gravity Vortex Gun at Tier 14, tacticals like the Flashbang Grenade – Light Show at Tier 28 and Concussion Grenade – Light Show at Tier 34, and plenty of free credits on the road to Tier 50.
Premium Pass Tiers
Purchase the Battle Pass for the chance to earn all of the content available in the New Order stream. Unlock cyberpunk style character skins like FTL – Power Line, Spectre – Chrome, Prophet – Geist, and David Mason – Enforcer. Expand your arsenal with epic blueprints like the Cordite – Tech Noir, the Locus – Carbon Cat, the FR .566 – Rogue Agent, the HBRa3 – Capacitor, and the HG-40 Cybersick.
New Weapon: SKS
Those looking to put in more effort can earn another base weapon, the SKS, via the seasonal challenge Battle Royale Bluff. This Marksman Rifle is all about dominating long-range firefights with its fast-firing Kilo Bolt-Action. The SKS will be available in mid-February.
New MP Map: Reclaim
Battle it out in the dilapidated remains of a holiday shopping complex in Reclaim, a brand-new and original map joining the Multiplayer rotation on Call of Duty: Mobile.
Stick to the ground floor boutiques and fight it out against enemies in the street, or head upstairs for the height advantage at the risk of getting ambushed at a moment’s notice.
New MP & BR Modes
New Multiplayer Modes: 3v3 Gunfight & 20-Player Attack of the Undead
New Order expands two fan-favorite modes into even more chaos with the addition of 3v3 Gunfight and 20-player Attack of the Undead. In Gunfight, a third teammate creates all kinds of new possibilities for winning rounds, and with 20 players in Attack of the Undead you’ll need to be in top fighting form to fight off the horde.
New Battle Royale Mode: Blitz
No dilly-dallying now, Blitz is here as a brand-new Battle Royale variant featuring 40 players in a fast-paced match. It’s not much over ten minutes until the final safe zone forms, so stay alert and keep moving forward into ever more present danger.
Don’t fret, though, as the map is filled with extra items to compensate for the mode’s shorter duration. From equipment to weapons, it’s only a short search away from a strong loadout, letting you focus on the battles ahead.
Limited Time Event
Pick Your Side in The Fight for Humanity Event
Choose your faction: Atlas or Cordis. In the Fight for Humanity event, arriving later this Season, each faction vies for control over territory. Win new territory each day by completing different tasks. Can your faction win all 15 territories?
Accumulate both personal and faction points for your efforts, reaching toward milestone and leaderboard prizes. Winning a territory awards a bonus toward your personal points, so it pays to work on the day’s task. Reach a high enough milestone to show off your dedication with a faction specific cosmetic skin and an epic weapon blueprint.
Be sure to drop into Call of Duty: Mobile starting at 4PM PT on January 26 for Season 1 New Order, and follow us @CODMobileClips for the latest updates!
Are there bots in CoD: Mobile? How to practice with AI
Most online games of CoD: Mobile feature tons of real-life players, but can they can also feature bots as well?
Ever wondered if every player you play online with in CoD: Mobile is real? Well, we have all the details on whether or not bots exist in multiplayer, and also find out how you can practice against them too.
There is a long-standing belief that in the first few ranks of CoD: Mobile you’ll face mostly, if not all, bots in your online games. Players will find that if they can adjust to the controls quickly, then they can rack up some serious kills from the get-go.
However, this isn’t necessarily because you’re an expert marksman in CoD: Mobile, but more so due to the presence of simulated players. So let’s discuss the likelihood of bots in CoD: Mobile, and how to practice against them too.
Do you play against bots in CoD: Mobile?
Even though Activision or devs TiMi Studio Group haven’t come out and directly addressed it, we’re 99.99% sure that bots do exist in online games of CoD: Mobile.
Playing Call of Duty on a smaller, handheld device requires a lot more precision due to its slightly fiddly nature. So it’s only natural that it might take some time to adjust, or you just might be a new player in general that is getting to grips with Call of Duty.
So until you reach about Level 10 in CoD: Mobile, you’ll find that in your first few games that you’re almost godlike – finishing with insane K/D ratios. This is because you’re playing nothing but bots. You can still get bots in later levels too if the lobby is struggling to fill up for whatever reason.
It’s also quite easy to tell the difference between a bot and a real player as well. Yes, there will inevitably be newcomers that struggle with CoD: Mobile, but they still act naturally.
Whereas bots will repeatedly duck and dodge in cover in a completely robotic way following the same scripted path. Additionally, they also stand out in the open not even attempting to take cover and move into completely bizarre positions.

CoD: Mobile how to practice against the A.I
If you’re eager to try out some new weapons or test your aim in CoD: Mobile so that you can perform better in actual matches, then you might want to practice.
This is very easy and straightforward to do:
- Load up CoD: Mobile
- At the main menu, press on the ‘Multiplayer’ option
- Make your way down through the options until you get to the ‘Practice’ choice
- Go across to ‘Practice vs. AI’
- Select the game mode and play a 5v5 match
The game will inform you that you will earn XP at a “90% reduction,” but that’s not why you’re in practice anyway.
So if you’re new to the game, or encounter a strange-looking and behaving enemy, then consider the possibility that they are indeed a bot.
Also, check out all CoD: Mobile ranks and how to get them.

CoD: Mobile Season 7’s Reaper – Ashura mecha skin might be the coolest ever
Call of Duty: Mobile Season 7 is adding the awesome Legendary Reaper – Ashura skin, and here’s how you can get your hands on it.
Call of Duty: Mobile has teamed up with famed Japanese mecha designer Shoji Kawamori to design a brand-new Reaper skin, and it might be one of the most awesome cosmetics in the game.
The good news is that this isn’t the only big partnership this season, with CoD: Mobile teaming up with renowned Japanese mecha designer Shoji Kawamori to design a special character skin based on the giant machines.
Mechas are essentially giant robots found in science-fiction genres which are controlled by humans, but move and look human. Mechas are hugely popular, especially in Japan, and while Reaper won’t be turning into a giant, the character is getting an amazing coat of paint thanks to Kawamori.
“When I was thinking about the mecha design of the robot weapons in Call of Duty: Mobile, which has a military-style worldview, I incorporated an ‘anime feel’ to achieve a balance that is more human, while still retaining a mecha vibe,” he explained about his design process.
The skin itself is mostly white, but features a skull and crossbones above the golden visor on its face. Accented with red, this is by far one of the most interesting Reaper skins ever, one which Kawamori hopes players will enjoy using.
The good news is that we won’t have long to wait to get our hands on the Legendary Reaper – Ashura skin, as it will be available in Call of Duty: Mobile Season 7 from 5PM PDT / 8PM EST / 1AM BST on September 9.
Once you get your hands on the new Reaper – Ashura skin, you can use our best CoD: Mobile guns tier list to make sure you’ve got the firepower to dominate the lobby.
