Activision have revealed new details about what we can expect to see in Call of Duty: Mobile when Season 1 goes live on January 26. Here’s everything we know so far about the upcoming update.
Call of Duty: Mobile Season 13 is almost over, and a new update is planned to start 2021 with a bang. Activision considers the upcoming Season to be a fresh new start so they’ve called it Season 1, instead of Season 14.
Now, the devs have given us a closer look at the latest community update. They revealed that Season 1 is officially titled New Order, and showed off some of the exciting new content that will be added to the Battle Royale.
With the new Season set to begin on January 26, we’ll go over everything that’s confirmed by the developers so far.
New weapons in Call of Duty: Mobile Season 1
Two new weapons were revealed for New Order earlier this week through some teasers. The Famas burst rifle and SKS marksman rifle were originally in Modern Warfare, and will now be making their way to COD: Mobile Season 1.
Activision has now revealed some new details about these weapons – including how to unlock them in the game. The Famas burst assault rifle will become available to you right away if you own the Season One battle pass.
The second weapon can be unlocked by completing a new seasonal challenge, which makes it similar to the QXR from last Season. These are both ideal choices for long-range combat situations, so be sure to get them when the update goes live.
New COD: Mobile Season 1 multiplayer map
Activision teased a map earlier today that closely resembles one from the previous test builds, and now they’ve revealed a brand-new one that will be a part of Season 1. They initially tested it on a public test server in December 2020.
The medium-sized area is an abandoned city that will be a new addition to the COD universe. The developers compared it to Cage from earlier Seasons, and the infrastructure has been ruined over time.
You’ll be able to take on other players in a shopping district that’s filled with unfinished holiday decorations. This multiplayer map might be titled Rebirth, and you can expect to run into enemies around every corner.
New game modes in COD: Mobile Season 1
We found that Attack of the Undead would be returning to COD: Mobile in the last public test. This mode has the undead try to kill a group of survivors before the time runs out, while the latter try to survive until the end of the round.
The game mode starts with 2 randomly selected players who are zombies, and they’ll have access to a proper loadout. This sounds fun enough on its own, but now the devs have confirmed that a new Battle Royale mode will also be introduced in New Order.
They haven’t revealed details about it, but have reassured fans that we’ll see that information soon. They also mentioned that their goal is to have multiple limited-time BR modes ready to try for most of the Season.
Bug fixes and other changes in COD: Mobile Season 1
As expected, there are a variety of bug fixes planned for the update. While we don’t have specifics about what will be worked on, the devs reassured fans that they’ve listened to complaints. So, there will be a great focus on detailed bug reports and feedback.
Activision also answered a few fan questions that have been asked about Season 1 throughout the previous community updates. Through this, they were able to confirm some exciting new things about New Order.
Ghost and few other operators will be getting new voiceovers in this update. The Season will also focus on having a fantastical theme, with much of the gameplay revolving around the use of futuristic tech. So they’re moving away from the military theme.
There were rumors that the Overkill perk would be added in this update, but it seems that the developers have no plan to implement it anytime soon.
“No, have no intention of adding this perk until we feel weapons are nearly perfectly balanced due to how much it would affect weapon balance.”

We also won’t be seeing any major Gunsmith updates in the upcoming season, but they did write that “there are aspects of this being tweaked constantly and some of that should be coming soon.”
That covers everything we know so far about Call of Duty: Mobile New Order. With Season One just around the corner, we can expect to hear more news within the coming week. Once we do, we’ll be sure to update you.

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.

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.
