Bringing together the Modern Warfare and Black Ops worlds, Call of Duty: Mobile is taking the king of shooters to mobile devices.
With a deluge of information pouring out of the closed Beta, more and more details on Call of Duty: Mobile are finally being unearthed. Announced in March 2019, Call of Duty: Mobile won’t be the first CoD you can play on your phone, but it’s looking like it might be the best.
Currently, the game is undergoing a closed Beta on Android devices in India, and soon to be Australia, while a worldwide release is expected in the coming months. However, if you can’t wait until the Beta is avaible in your region and want to know everything you possibly can as soon as possible, look no further! Here’s a roundup of everything we know so far about Call of Duty: Mobile. From Nukes to Zombies, this app is packing a punch.
(NOTE: This page will be continuously updated with the newest information appearing at the bottom, so be sure to check back often).
Multiplayer Maps & Modes
Since Call of Duty: Mobile is all about bringing together Call of Duty’s biggest two series’, of the seven maps announced, 4 are pulled from Black Ops games while 3 are from the Modern Warfare franchise.
- Nuketown (Black Ops)
- Hijacked (Black Ops)
- Standoff (Black Ops)
- Firing Range (Black Ops)
- Crash (Modern Warfare)
- Crossfire (Modern Warfare)
- Killhouse (Modern Warfare)
Following suit, the Multiplayer Modes available are also selected from a wide array of Call of Duty’s, even including an oft-forgotten mode from Infinite Warfare. All modes can be played in Ranked matches for XP and rewards or Private matches.
- Free-For-All (8 Players)
- Frontline (10 Players)
- Team Deathmatch (10 Players)
- Hardpoint (10 Players)
- Domination (10 Players)
A core part of Call of Duty Multiplayer, Scorestreaks see their return. Unlockable through in-game XP, the current offerings are the Recon Car, UAV, Hunter Killer Drone, Air Supply Drop, Counter UAV, Missile Strike, Drone, Sentry Gun, SAM Turret, Stealth Chopper, and VTOL.
The weapons and loadout system functions most similarly to Infinite Warfare, in which every gun has increasing Rarity levels that offer more XP and an additional perk or two. These better variants can be unlocked through Ranked Play, CoD Points, Credits, leveling up the Battle Pass, or as a Daily Login bonus.
The base variant of every gun can be unlocked by leveling up naturally, and can equip up to three attachments and a scope.
The list of weapons currently available in Call of Duty: Mobile:
- Type 25
- Arctic 50
- FHJ-18 AA
While the amount of guns at your disposal matches the standard amount in a CoD game, Call of Duty: Mobile also has a plethora of equipment including: Concussion, EMP, Flashbang, Grenade, Semtex, Smoke Grenade, and Trip Mine.
For the first time in Call of Duty history, players will be able to customize their Equipment with cosmetics as seen in the image above.
Battle Royale and Zombies
Images from the main menu have already revealed that a Battle Royale and Zombies mode is coming to Call of Duty: Mobile some time in the future. We currently do not know if the Battle Royale mode will take place on Blackout Island, Alcatraz Island, or an entirely new map.
However, looking at the image of the zombie, eagle-eyed fans would recognize this walker from press shots for Shadows of Evil. We’ve seen Zombies maps on smartphones in the past, from Nacht det Untoten to Call of the Dead, yet using a Black Ops 3 map as the base Zombies experience for Call of Duty: Mobile would definitely be an interesting move.
Players will be able to customize their characters before jumping into battle by changing their Headgear, Backpack, and Clothing. Call of Duty Veterans will be happy to see series’ legends make appearances as well. Alex Mason (BO1), David “Section” Mason (BO2), Thomas A. Merrick (Ghosts), John “Soap” MacTavish (MW), John Price (MW) are the first to be confirmed.
The nuke is back! When players go on a 30 killstreak in Call of Duty: Mobile, they will have the chance to press the Nuclear button and eliminate the entire enemy team. While this nuke doesn’t end the game, it still feels as awesome as it did in 2009.
As of now, there are three forms of play in Call of Duty: Mobile: Match, Rank Match, and Private Match. While Match is where most casual play will take place, Ranked Matches offer the ability to level up throughout Seasons and earn better Weapons, Bonus XP, and more based on your level and placement.
Daily Login Rewards
Borrowing yet another page from Infinite Warfare, Call of Duty: Mobile will offer Daily Login rewards for players who… log into the game daily.
In the Closed Beta, the rewards range from 10 Credits to new Weapon rarities to character skins. Definitely looks like something worth checking in daily to receive.
Battle Pass, Store, & Credits
While pricing and items in the Beta are subject to change, the current model is very reminiscent of Fortnite or PUBG. Players have access to a free and Premium stream of content that rewards them with items per each tier, with the Premium tiers offering better loot than the free tiers.
A welcome addition to these Premium tiers is the inclusion of CoD points as rewards, something still missing from Black Ops 4’s Contraband.
The Store allows players to spend CoD points on new guns, equipment, and skins. Currently, these items are exclusive to the Store and can not be earned in-game, however the Beta grants players with 5000 CoD points to start.
Call of Duty: Mobile has two currencies, CoD Points (the circular icon) and Credits (the hexagonal icon). CoD Points will be bought with real world money or earned through the premium battle pass, while Credits are gained by leveling up in Matches and through both Battle Passes.
Credits can be used to buy items in the Store under the Credits tab such as Legendary guns.
Battle Royale Classes
Similar to Apex Legends, Call of Duty: Mobile’s Battle Royale will allow players to choose between six different classes before jumping in.
The current line-up consists of Medic, Scout, Clown, Ninja, Defender, and Mechanic. Pictures with their unique equipment and perks and can viewed above.
Battle Royale Map
Since the running theme with Call of Duty: Mobile is combining a decades worth of CoD into one handheld experience, the Battle Royale map borrows locations from both Modern Warfare and Black Ops.
The named locations include classics like Nuketown, Firing Range, Overgrown, Crash, Killhouse and more. This of course begs the question, where we dropping?
Vehicles in Battle Royale
According to this screenshot of the Settings menu in Call of Duty: Mobile’s Battle Royale mode, a Vehicle tab might confirm that ATV’s, Cargo Trucks, and more will be usable.
Third Person Mode
While Call of Duty has only ever ventured into Third Person mode a handful of times, most recently with Black Ops 4 Specialist Spectre, Call of Duty: Mobile will allow players to jump into the battle in either perspective.
Pre-Registration is Live
Call of Duty: Mobile will release worldwide on Android and iOS devices in the coming months, however a regional Beta is live right now. To get first access when the Beta goes live in your region, be sure to sign up at https://www.callofduty.com/mobile.

The gaming landscape has changed over the years with the incorporation of microtransactions and live-gaming services. Many games offer extra content – with cosmetics being a big proponent of this. Call of Duty offers its own huge palette of extra goodies you can add to your game and requires COD Points to do so.
So with our detailed guide today we’re going to run through the basics of COD Points to help you understand them, tell you what they do, and more.
What is the price of COD Points?
There are different amounts and bundles you can opt for when buying COD Points that are tailored to different needs.

Where do I spend my COD Points?

What can I buy with COD Points?
Call of Duty’s currency is used to primarily buy two things: the Battle Pass for the current season and Bundles containing a variety of items.
A Battle Pass is a paid Tier system that allows regular players to earn dozens of extra rewards and cosmetics for essentially playing the game.
Black Ops Cold War and Warzone are currently in Season Two of their respective lifecycles at the moment. Both titles are currently running in tandem with each other and share the same Battle Pass.
It features 100 Tiers for players to smash their way through the course of Season 2, and if players are committed enough, they can actually earn enough COD Points, through leveling up the pass, to get the next one for free.
You can buy the Cold War & Warzone Season 2 Battle Pass via a couple of different methods:
- Purchase it from the Official Call of Duty website
- Buy it from the in-game store on your respective platform
The other main content you can buy is a wide range of Bundles and Operator Bundles. These special bundles vary in price, and each comes with its own unique items.
The collectibles you can expect to find are Calling Cards, Emblems, Operator Skins, Weapon Blueprints, Weapon Charms, and more.

5 best Call of Duty games ever ranked: Full tier list
We’ve gone through every single Call of Duty game ever and created a full tier list of them all, and then ranked our top 5 as well.
We’ve taken the difficult task of sifting through every CoD game ever, and not only are we compiling a full tier list of every game, but we are ranking our top five as well.
It’s been nearly 20 years since Call of Duty released in 2003 and what a journey it has been. The franchise has explored many different eras in history and undergone countless changes. However, when you release so many games, some are bound to become lost, and some become legendary.
So it’s time to dig through a history of Call of Duty games to assign them our verdict and then select the absolute cream of the crop – and rank them.

Call of Duty: Best games tier list
So many factors have gone into the decision-making process here such as the game’s respective campaigns, multiplayer, side modes, themes, guns, and a lot more. With all this in mind, we were able to grade each game.
Here is our Official tier list of all of Black Ops Cold War’s weapons:

Ranking the Best Call of Duty games of all time
5. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2019
Modern Warfare yet again redefined the Call of Duty franchise, giving players one of the most polished and detailed Call of Duty titles ever created. It encompassed all that had made the series great to this point and made it feel as crisp as ever.
The campaign reintroduced classic characters, interspersed with memorable new ones, and a new storyline. The fresh but familiar feeling was sprinkled with an unsettling terrorist attack in Picadilly Circus, fights through a burning mine, and other horrifying scenes.
For multiplayer, animations were fine-tuned and weapons were overhauled to feel powerful in the hands of every player. We got exhilarating new modes such as Cyber Attack and even got the return of the much-loved Spec Ops Mode.
In March of 2020, Activision released Modern Warfare’s Warzone mode, a 150 player battle royale – which was an instant hit. It since become one of the premier experiences for battle royale with Warzone now well into its second season.
4. Call of Duty: World At War
With the evolution of the Call of Duty engine during the development of CoD 4: Modern Warfare, Treyarch had the opportunity to make the most detailed World War 2 shooter experience yet. The first three Call of Duty games are rather unheralded compared to anything post CoD 4, but World at War restored that feeling and improved on it.
World At War delivered a chilling ride across the Pacific Theatre and Russian front. Gore mechanics made the game feel visceral and real, making the experience much more intense and realistic. The game’s fabulous campaign crescendos into an incredible final stretch, storming the Reichstag.
The multiplayer was a great extension of the new formula the series had discovered and transferred all those properties to World at War. The most incredible aspect of World at War though has to be the sleeper-hit, now must-have feature, Nazi Zombies.
The addition of Nacht Der Untoten, a post-campaign mini-game, revolutionized the multiplayer experience even more. The mode received three more maps through DLC and has been continued in every Treyarch Call of Duty game since.
3. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2
Needless to say, the anticipation and excitement of a Modern Warfare sequel reached unprecedented heights. The follow-up more than surpassed expectations by delivering another jaw-dropping campaign featuring iconic figures like Captain Price, Commander Shepard, Ghost, and a playable Soap. The game become notorious for its “No Russian” mission and other controversial moments.
The multiplayer formula was in full-swing now and Modern Warfare 2 introduced a brand new set of 15 selectable killstreak rewards – including the game-changing nuke. Maps like Terminal and Rust would go onto be celebrated in CoD folklore, and the era of the 360 no-scope was born.
If all this wasn’t enough, we also got “Special Ops”, a mode for 1-2 players that recreated and expanded upon many scenarios from the first two Modern Warfare games, and challenged the players to get maximum stars.
2. Call of Duty: Black Ops
Instead of doing a direct sequel to World at War like Infinity Ward was doing with Modern Warfare, Treyarch slapped on a new title: “Black Ops”.
In order to bring a unique experience, they set their first Black Ops game during the Vietnam era. In the Campaign, players would be part of an elite squad working alongside the CIA in covert operations around the globe. We got the historic “What do the numbers mean?” and the return of fan-favorite Viktor Reznov – played by Gary Oldman.
Zombies delivered another round, or 100, of intense undead-killing action, and introduced another new concept to the series in the form of Dead Ops. A top-down, arcade twin-stick shooter with power-ups, up to 4 players, and hours of fun.
The multiplayer front continued to deliver months of unforgettable action with a litany of unmistakable maps: including one of the most divisive maps in Call of Duty history – Nuketown.
1. Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare
The game that started it all and began a revolution in the first-person shooter industry. After years of companies generally churning out different variations of World War games, Infinity Ward ripped up the playbook and started from scratch with a hot new take on the modern-day conflict.
The campaign was one spellbinding encounter after another taking the player on a violent journey of death, destruction, and even nuclear devastation. The one-two salvo of All Ghillied Up and One Shot, One Kill is as good as two missions come in an FPS game, and it all culminates in breathtaking fashion.
Even more remarkable than Soap’s fruit-killing skills is the way in which Infinity Ward single-handedly reshaped online multiplayer as we know it. Seamlessly blending together class systems, satisfying weaponry, all-time great maps, and more.
The game would cement Call of Duty as one of the most successful video game franchises in history and is still hotter than ever thanks to Black Ops Cold War and Warzone.
