Season 3 of CoD: Mobile is officially titled Tokyo Escape, and the developers have detailed what we can expect in terms of new content. There are brand-new weapon blueprints, skins, operators, and Battle Pass rewards.
When does CoD: Mobile Season 3 start?
As the name implies, Tokyo Escape will prominently feature a Japanese setting, which is new for the battle royale. The developers have revealed that CoD: Mobile Season 3 is set to go live at 5 pm PT on April 17, 2021.

The Battle Pass will bring new additions to the battle royale, as you’ll have the opportunity to try out new Multiplayer maps, game modes, and challenges while earning free rewards through ranking up in the game.
New Call of Duty maps: Oasis and Coastal
In a tweet on April 3, the devs released a teaser video for Season 3’s new map, Coastal, which is already part of the Chinese version. This map has a similar aesthetic to CSGO and is sure to be a fan-favorite for Search and Destroy.
Another map being added is Oasis which is from Modern Warfare, and is set in a “luxurious desert hotel.” This medium-sized area “challenges Operators to battle it out across the hotel courtyard, spa, and parking lot, using every opportunity to outflank and outsmart opponents.”
New multiplayer modes
Season 3 will add two new game modes to the battle royale. In Swords & Stones, “Operators deploy with melee weapons and grenades only.” You can increase your movement and attack speed by taking down foes.

The second game mode is Night Modes is from Modern Warfare, and has players fight in the darkness using night-vision goggles to see. The mobile version will give your goggles a limited battery life, and will arrive later during the season.
Free Battle Pass rewards
One of the new Free Battle Pass rewards is the PP19 Bizon. This powerful automatic Submachine Gun is capable of dishing a ton of damage, and its biggest draw is the high-capacity helical magazine that lets you defeat several enemies before reloading.
It has also appeared in other Call of Duty titles like Warzone, where its become renowned for its low recoil that allows you to hit foes consistently. You can also unlock a new Operator Skill Bull Charge in the Battle Pass.
Premium Pass rewards: Epic Characters and Weapons
The Tokyo Escape Premium Pass will contain Epic rewards that can unlock while ranking up to 50 tiers of the Battle Pass. This includes various Battle Pass Operators, weapons, and in-game accessories.
We’ll go over the complete list of what you can unlock:

Warrior’s Path event and challenges
Season 3 will also bring the the Warrior’s Path event that will require you to “fight alongside your allies in a bid to acquire new territory and earn new rewards in the process.”
It will last for fifteen days, and you’ll be able to earn special rewards for ending on the winning side or for being one of the top contributors. There are eight Epic rewards in all and one Legendary Calling Card, alongside various Rare weapon camos and characters.
You can unlock the new handgun, Renetti for free through upcoming seasonal challenges in the game. This powerful weapon is from Modern Warfare that fires three-round bursts to annihilate its targets.
The new Overclock perk increases the charging speed of an Operator Skill, and you will get to unlock it by completing more seasonal challenges. We expect these to get released later into season three.
New class: Spotter
Another new addition in CoD: Mobile Season 3 is the Spotter class, which comes with two different abilities. The Cluster Strike allows you to launch a cluster airstrike to a designated area, letting you take out multiple foes in one go.
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.
As always, the devs want to bring significant quality improvements and optimization in the new update. Here are all the changes that they’ve made to CoD: Mobile’s multiplayer in Tokyo Escape:

How to unlock Diamond & Damascus camos in CoD: Mobile
Find out how you can unlock and apply Diamond camo and Damascus camo to your guns in CoD: Mobile Season 8.
Diamond and Damascus are two of the most desirable camos in CoD: Mobile, and here’s how you can get your hands on them in Season 8.
Proudly displaying a stunning camo is representative of all the hard work you’ve had to put in to be able to show off such a fine piece of art. Even if you have a bad game of CoD: Mobile, at least you’ve been able to die with style!
This is why it’s important that you’re armed with the knowledge to unlock both Diamond and Damascus camos for your weapons in Call of Duty’s handheld version. These Mastery camos are not straightforward, will require some work, but will reward your efforts in Season 8.
Here is how to unlock Diamond and Damascus camo in CoD Mobile.
How to get Diamond Mastery camo in CoD: Mobile
Dispensing with the usual nature of progressive camos and accumulating them all to unlock the overall granddaddy camo – Diamond – there are actually separate challenges for you to complete to unlock it.
This is what you’ll need to do to acquire Diamond camo for CoD: Mobile:
- Assault Rifles: 10 kills per match for 150 matches (Must do this for ALL Assault Rifles)
- SMGs: 10 kills per match for 120 matches (Must do this for ALL SMGs)
- Sniper Rifles: 10 kills per match for 120 matches (Must do this for ALL Sniper Rifles)
- LMGs: 10 kills per match for 120 matches (Must do this for ALL LMGs)
- Shotguns: 10 kills per match for 120 matches (Must do this for ALL Shotguns)
- Pistols: 10 kills per match for 80 matches (Must do this for ALL Pistols)
- Melee: 500 total kills with each melee weapon
- Launchers: 100 UAV takedowns with each launcher
As you can see, it’s quite a hefty amount of kills and hours that you’ll need to sink into CoD: Mobile, but if you manage to do so, then you’ll be handsomely rewarded with Diamond camo that you can slap on something like the Renetti or PP19 Bizon.
How to get Damascus Mastery camo in CoD: Mobile
Damascus is more attuned to the camo unlock requirements of previous Call of Duty games in which you need to acquire the Platinum camo for every weapon to get your hands on the ultimate camo.
Getting Platinum means getting Gold camo for every weapon, and to get Gold camo, you’ll need to get every other camo available.
You need Platinum camos for all of the following:
- Assault Rifles
- Submachine Guns
- Sniper Rifles
- Light Machine Guns
- Melee weapons
Once more, this will be very grindy and take you a while to complete. Attaining Platinum camo for one set of guns can be strenuous enough, and usually determines whether you’ll end up doing them all.
But just remember why you’re doing it, that shiny, pretty Damascus camo to apply to all the best guns in CoD Mobile!

- Laser: OWC Laser – Tactical
- Smoothbore: MFT Urban Smoothbore

Shotguns are always best at short distances, so rather than try to make it effective at long range, which will be almost impossible anyway, we’ve focused on maximizing its strengths.
The OWC Laser – Tactical gives a strong buff to ADS time and bullet spread, while the Granulated Grip Tape also improves your spread too. Add in the Choke Muzzle, and your bullet spread when aiming down sights or hip firing is upgraded, while your damage range is boosted by 15%.

Using a shotgun in CoD: Mobile means you’ll need to get close to opponents, so Fast Recover is perfect to help you regen health quicker as you charge towards enemies in search of kills.
Vulture will keep you supplied in shotgun shells, while Dead Silence will help you move quietly as you sneak up on opponents and blast them away with your R9-0.
How to unlock R9-0 in CoD: Mobile
Unlocking the R9-0 in CoD: Mobile is pretty straightforward. The shotgun is available as a common item at Tier 21 of the Season 8 Battle Pass.
Players who purchase the premium Battle Pass will be able to unlock an epic blueprint for the weapon.
Best CoD: Mobile R9-0 alternatives
