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.

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.

New Sniper Rifle coming to CoD Mobile Season 2
The CoD Mobile developers have confirmed a mobile version of the SP-R 208 from Modern Warfare 2019 in Season 2.
Call of Duty: Mobile will be bringing in another weapon from Modern Warfare 2019 in Season 2, as the SP-R 208 has been confirmed for the battle royale’s next major update.
Activision and TiMi Studios have been dropping teasers for Season 2 of CoD Mobile, which will launch soon after Season 1 ends on March 10. They’ve showcased many of the new maps and weapons that will come with the next content drop.
Now, it’s been confirmed that the SP-R 208 Marksman Rifle will be making its way to CoD Mobile in the upcoming update. This is the second weapon from Modern Warfare 2019 to be added to this game, along with the AS Val
SP-R 208 Marksman Rifle confirmed for CoD Mobile
The CoD Mobile Twitter account shared another Season 2 teaser on February 28, in which they announced that a familiar gun that will be making its way to CoD Mobile soon.
“Another new weapon is coming [in Season 2] and you might recognize it… can you guess what it is?” the account teased. Fans were immediately able to identify it as the SP-R208 from Modern Warfare 2019.
The devs confirmed that the mobile version of this rifle will become available next season. The weapon established itself as a solid pick upon its initial release, and many players often incorporated it into their loadouts.
While this marksman rifle’s pick rate has decreased in recent times due to the popularity of other stronger Warzone weapons, it’s still an ideal choice for long and medium-range combat due to its versatility.
You can run into battle with the SP-R, and use it to dish out some serious pain to your enemies from a distance. If you want to further improve the weapon, then there are a few select attachments and perks that you can equip, and you can check out the best loadout for it here.
Luckily, you won’t have to wait much longer to get your hands on it, as Season 2 is just around the corner. While the exact release date isn’t confirmed, we expect it to immediately follow the end of Season 1 on March 10.
