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!
When does CoD Mobile Season 2 start?
Season 1 of CoD Mobile is almost over, but when is Season 2 of the free-to-play Call of Duty game expected to start?
Call of Duty Mobile underwent a rebirth of sorts by having its 14th Season reset and start from Season 1 again. This soft reboot was great, but fans are already looking ahead to see what Season 2 could bring.
To possibly save CoD Mobile from being affected by number-fatigue, the game has reverted to Season 1 for its first major content drop of 2021. The “New Order” update has introduced new modes, a new map, and much more.
The devs have made sure to keep the game fresh with new goodies to look forward to each month. 2021 is expected to be no different for the smash-hit mobile game, so here’s everything you need to know about Season 2.
When will CoD Mobile Season 1 end?
The all-new Reclaim map was just one of the cool, new things introduced in Season 1’s January 26 launch date. There was also plenty of new loot that you’d expect in the form of a new Battle Pass, weapons, characters, and cosmetics.
With the Season 1 Battle Pass is set to expire on March 10, Season 2 has been confirmed to kick-off with a bang sometime within the next week.
What content will be in CoD Mobile Season 2?
The official teases have started for the next season of Call of Duty Mobile, revealing some juicy details of what to expect.
A leak revealed that another Modern Warfare map is coming to the game. The chaotic Shoot House map underwent Beta testing in China to prepare it for its release in the mobile battle royale.
The developers presented the full layout of the map, along with some other details in an official blog post. While it’s small in size, the action is more concentrated so you’ll encounter your enemies more frequently.
Activision recently confirmed that the classic Nuketown map will return at some point, but they’ve yet to clarify when exactly this will be. While Nuketown Russia has been fun, many fans agree that there’s just no replacing the original.
In addition to this, we will also see the arrival of Shipment from Modern Warfare. It will probably replace the current Shipment 1944 map, and we expect that it will only stick around for a limited time.
Season 2 is will introduce the SP-R 208 Marksman rifle from Modern Warfare 2019. While this weapon has declined in popularity recently, it still boasts an impressive reload speed and bolt action which makes it ideal for long and medium-range combat.
Another weapon that will be coming from Modern Warfare is the AS Val. This Russian rifle is suited for stealth combat due to its suppressor and is capable of dishing out a ton of damage to its target.
New game modes
Gunfight Sniper is a brand new game mode that will be coming to CoD Mobile in Season 2. As the name implies, it will have players face off against each other with sniper rifles equipped. There will be six players and six rounds in this mode.
A recent leak hinted at the developers working on an Among Us-themed game mode as well. While we don’t expect to see this implemented in Season 2, we might hear some updates about its status in the coming weeks.
Tank Battle will also be making its way to the battle royale, which means that we can expect some explosive action in the game’s maps.
CoD Mobile Season 2 theme
CoD Mobile is no stranger to cool themes that help shape the nature of a season. In the past, we’ve seen wars between different factions and even a Western theme too.
The theme of the latest season is ‘Day of Reckoning.’ The various new maps, weapons, and game modes reflect this particularly well.
That covers everything we know about CoD Mobile Season 2. We’ll keep you informed about any new updates and announcements from the developers.

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.
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.
