Nuclear explosion in Cod Mobile

There are various different weapons that you can use to dish out some pain in Call of Duty Mobile, but nothing gets the job done like a nuke. Here’s how you can get a nuke in CoD Mobile.

CoD Mobile has a wide variety of great weapons for you to try out, like the R9-0 and M13. You can use these to cause some serious damage to your opponents and secure your victory.

However, one weapon stands above all others, and that is the nuke. Detonating this will wipe out all your adversaries on the map. This guide will cover everything you need to do to get your hands on a nuke.

How to unlock a nuke in CoD Mobile

Once you’ve ranked up to level 20, you can unlock a nuke by getting a killstreak of 20 in CoD Mobile. Once that’s done, you’ll be able to plant the nuke to take out every remaining enemy in a match.

Here’s how you can get this done:

  1. Launch the multiplayer mode in CoD Mobile
  2. Select perks that help with your survival like Persistence or Hardline
  3. Select a heavy weapon that will help you score quick kills
  4. Choose a multiplayer map and jump into battle

That covers everything you need to do in order to unlock a nuke in CoD Mobile. Just hop into a few matches and you’ll be able to score that killstreak after a bit of practice.

CoD Mobile Season 9 Nightmare update patch notes: Halloween event release date, Undead Siege, weapons, maps

Here’s everything you need to know about the Halloween-themed Call of Duty: Mobile Season 9, including the new weapons and release date.



cod mobile nightmare official art

Call of Duty: Mobile is set to celebrate Halloween by bringing a spooky overhaul to the handheld shooter in Season 9. Here’s everything we know about the Nightmare update’s Halloween event, including the release date, new maps, and weapons.

Call of Duty: Mobile Season 8 is soon wrapping up, and the handheld shooter will be getting a spooky overhaul with Season 9. This new Halloween-themed update brings back Undead Siege, as well as introduces new maps, weapons, and more.

Here’s everything we know about CoD: Mobile Season 9, including its release date and Halloween-themed content.

CoD: Mobile Season 9 start date

CoD Mobile Zombies Undead Siege mode

Call of Duty: Mobile Season 9 is set to begin on Wednesday, October 20, at around 5 PM PT / 8 PM ET / 1 AM BST (October 21).

CoD: Mobile doesn’t usually have a significant downtime between seasons, so Season 9 should launch almost immediately after the Season 8 Battle Pass expires.

CoD: Mobile Season 9 theme

Alongside Warzone’s The Haunting event, CoD: Mobile will also be running a Halloween theme. Although not officially revealed, a leaked teaser has revealed that Season 9 will be titled ‘Nightmare.’

Expect Halloween updates to many aspects of the game, as well as spooky cosmetics in the store and Battle Pass.

New CoD: Mobile Season 9 maps

CoD: Mobile’s developers have revealed that Season 9 will bring Modern Warfare (2019)’s Hovec Sawmill and Halloween Standoff.

Hovec Sawmill was a brand new map for Modern Warfare, taking place in a small village with a burning Sawmill in the center. With several accessible rooftops, you’ll need to keep your eyes up. And for CoD Mobile Season 9, the Hovec Sawmill will be a night map, matching Nightmare’s spooky aesthetic.

Halloween Standoff also returns in Season 9, which is fast becoming a tradition for CoD Mobile. This new update gives the classic Black Ops 2 map an eery overhaul, with pumpkins and other Halloween decorations littering the nighttime version.

The devs also teased that “a surprise mystery lies ahead,” so we’ll need to wait and see what 2021’s version of Halloween Standoff has in store.

New CoD: Mobile Season 9 weapons

CoD Mobile Season 9 Thumper and Swordfish

Call of Duty fans will be quick to recognize Nightmare’s new weapons, with CoD Mobile Season 9 bringing the Thumper and the Swordfish.

The Thumper Grenade Launcher has featured in several Call of Duty games and is sure to be a powerful addition to the new season.

And Black Ops 4 players will recognize the Swordfish, a four-round burst Tactical Rifle that’s low recoil allowed it to chew through enemies with ease.

New CoD: Mobile Season 9 Tactical Weapon, Operator Skill & BR class

CoD: Mobile Season 9 also brings a new Tactical Weapon, Operator Skill, and Battle Royale Class.

The Flash Drone Tactical Weapon acts as a long-range flashbang. Players take charge of a drone that will completely blind enemies it comes into contact with. Devs said that it can be released at a distance “of about 15 meters” and has a range of “about 20 meters.”

The new Operator Skill, TAK-5, is set to be a game-changing addition to multiplayer. The TAK-5 immediately heals the full team, including the player, to full health. And not only that, but each player gets an additional 50 health.

And finally, CoD: Mobile’s battle royale gets the new Pumped class. This gives players a small jetpack that allows players to jump higher and even double jump. Plus, weapons are more accurate while in the air.

CoD: Mobile Season 9 Battle Pass

CoD: Mobile devs confirmed that the TAK-5 will arrive in the Season 9 Battle Pass alongside either the Thumper or Swordfish.

We expect there to also be plenty of Halloween-themed cosmetics in the Battle Pass, so we’ll keep you updated when the season goes live.

Undead Siege returns in CoD: Mobile Season 9

CoD: Mobile fans were clamoring for the Zombies mode to return, and Season 6’s Undead Siege brought a new twist to the classic experience. The Zombie-slaying action returns in Season 9.

In Undead Siege, players need to survive either three or five nights, defending Richtofen’s Control Center from wave after wave of the undead.

Undead Siege returns in Season 9 for the Nightmare Halloween event, and will likely last until the end of the season. Devs teased that “there are some new rewards to earn and new challenging zombie behavior to conquer.”

CoD: Mobile Season 9 Trick or Treat

An interesting new side addition to Season 9 is the new ‘Trick or Treat’ in-game scenario. According to the devs: “Go door to door and try your luck. If you’re tricked, complete an in-game task to get your candy; if you’re treated, get the candy right away.

“Candy awards event XP, progressing you through the event track with milestone rewards along the way. Set your own room to trick or treat, and visit your friends’ rooms, too.”

How to get the Gun Master Medal in CoD Mobile

We’ve put together this handy little guide to inform you how to obtain the difficult Gun Master Medal in CoD Mobile.



cod mobile gun master badge

Completing the Gun Master Medal conditions in CoD Mobile will reward you with some exclusive items, and this little guide will tell you what you need to do.

The Gun Master Medal is one of several tricky medals for players to earn in CoD Mobile, but achieving one does earn players some nifty rewards.

With CoD Mobile Season 8 now active, there are new weapons like the M13 and R9-0 and even the debut of Black Ops IIII’s Blackout map. So there’s even more content to keep players fresh and fired up to get the Gun Master Medal.

Gun Master Medal in CoD Mobile

players fighting in cod mobile

To earn the Gun Master Medal in CoD Mobile, players need to rack up at least 8 kills in a game of battle royale in Season 8.

Now, the Gun Master Medal isn’t as difficult as the Relentless Medal in Call of Duty Mobile, but it can still be quite difficult to achieve.

You don’t need us to tell you that this isn’t the easiest thing to do, and could take quite a few goes to accomplish. Sadly, there isn’t a definitive way to go about doing this, and will just solely rely on your skill as a player.

It can be done on any of the game’s BR maps, and the only real thing we can recommend is making sure you get your loadout as early as possible and being cautious. Obviously, not too careful, otherwise you could potentially end up winning, but not get 8 kills.

Even seasoned CoD Mobile players might have a tough time going for the Gun Master Medal, but hopefully, this guide will stand you in good stead.
