The new year is well underway, and the first season of CoD Mobile in 2022 is here. Titled ‘Heist,’ Season 1 includes two new maps, two new weapons, and a host of tweaks and fixes to improve your gameplay.

CoD Mobile Season 11 officially dropped on December 17, 2021, bringing festive cosmetics, a new multiplayer map, and Undead Siege.

Even though the patch was filled with content, CoD Mobile fans are already thinking about what’s next. As always, the iOS and Android title is set to restart in the new year with a brand new update.

For the past few weeks, very little has been known about CoD Mobile Season 1 2022, but thanks to some leaked Korean patch notes, we know exactly what to expect when the update drops. 

When does CoD Mobile Season 1 2022 Heist release?

The good news is that CoD Mobile Season 1: Heist officially kicks off on Wednesday, January 19, 2022, at 4pm PT / 7pm ET.

Patches for the game rarely have any downtime, so you won’t have to sit looking at a loading screen. As soon as the update drops, you’ll be able to drop into matches and test out the new items and maps. 

Kilo 141 & PPSh-41 in CoD Mobile Season 1 2022

CoD Mobile Season 1 2022 will include two new weapons for players to use. First up, Modern Warfare’s Kilo 141 assault rifle joins the game from Modern Warfare. Warzone players will remember this gun well, as it dominated the meta for a period in 2020.

SMG players will also get something new, with the franchise’s classic PPSh-41 also joining the fray. We don’t know how powerful these guns will be just yet, but early test builds suggest the Kilo could be a powerful option. 

CoD: Mobile Season 1 2022 new maps: Hacienda and Nuketown Temple

On top of two new weapons, CoD Mobile fans will also get to compete on two new maps, with a Black Ops 4 map joining the action.

Hacienda makes its mobile debut, a fan-favorite map based on a sprawling mansion, complete with an indoor courtyard and vineyard. On top of that, players will get Nuketown Temple, a redesigned version of the classic map to celebrate the Lunar New Year.

CoD Mobile Season 1 2022 New Modes & Battle Pass

The first update of 2022 also brings three new modes, with Heist returning from Black Ops 4, Payout Search & Destroy, and Red Envelope Kill Confirmed, which devs claim is “full of surprises.”

As always, there’s also a new Battle Pass, filled with limited-time cosmetic items to set your Operator apart from the rest.

Now, players are looking ahead to the major content drop that is set to arrive in CoD Mobile Season 5. We’ll go over everything that we know about the upcoming update, including the release date.

Contents

CoD Mobile Season 5: Tropical Vision release date

The Call of Duty Mobile developers confirmed in an official blog post that CoD Mobile Season 5 is titled ‘Tropical Vision’ and is scheduled to go live on June 1 at 5 PM PT / 8 PM ET / 1 AM BST.

This will happen right after the current season comes to an end, and players will be able to access all the new content that arrives in the Tropical Vision update, including a new map, as well as a brand-new Battle Pass.

CoD Mobile Season 5 Apocalypse map

On May 16, the Call of Duty Mobile Twitter account teased the arrival of Black Ops Cold War’s Apocalypse map in Season 5 with a message that reads: “What secrets hide in the jungle?”

This jungle-themed medium-sized map first appeared in Black Ops Cold War Season 2 and consisted of various tight corners as well as rooms with multiple entrances, ensuring intense fast-paced action.

Apocalypse will be featured in all standard game types in CoD Mobile Season 5. Most players will battle each other in the center lane of the map, and you can also flank enemies from the village or temple on either side of the map.

CoD Mobile Season 5 weapons: Oden Assault Rifle

CoD Mobile Season 5 has brought the Oden Assault Rifle for you to unlock after progressing through the Battle Pass to Tier 21. This weapon may be slow-firing but it’s still capable of dishing out a ton of damage.

You can also unlock the new RPD signature attachment known as the Cooling Compressor Barrel by completing seasonal challenges. This will replace reloading with an overheating system, allowing you to fire continuously.

CoD Mobile Season 5 possible Perk changes

The CoD Mobile test built features a major change to Persistence which is a red Perk that lets you continue your Scorestreaks even when you’ve been killed. Now, the Perk’s color has been changed to blue.

While Persistence is equipped, your Scorestreaks will be divided into low, middle, and high ranks. You’ll only be able to equip one scorestreak of each rank at the same time. However, it remains to be seen if this change will arrive in the game during Season 5.

CoD Mobile Season 5 Guns Blazing Encore mode

CoD Mobile Season 5 also features a new multiplayer mode known as Guns Blazing Encore, and this turns you into a super-soldier so that you can destroy your enemies with a custom loadout.

Your goal in this game mode is to eliminate enemy Operators in order to score points. You’ll get 1 point from killing normal Operators and 3 points from taking down super-soldiers. You’ll need to be the first player to earn 30 points in order to win.

You can transform into a super-soldier by filling your Fury gauge as you secure kills, and this will grant you dual-wield Death Machines along with a health boost.

CoD Mobile Season 5 Flood Team Bravo event

The tropical storm in Season 5 has caused mass flooding, so Soap and Team Bravo are tasked with extracting the water around the area by strengthening water pumps.

You can participate in this event by completing general and special tasks across CoD Mobile Season 5 multiplayer and Battle Royale. Earning event points will let you unlock the Soap Vacay Ready Operator skin.

CoD Mobile Season 5 Jackal Fighter Jet

A leak from ‘CoD Mobile Intel’ suggests that the Jackal Fighter Jet is coming in CoD Mobile Season 5. This is an aerial vehicle that can engage enemies in combat in both the air and in space.

The Jackal Jet was heavily featured in Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, and it remains to be seen if the version in CoD Mobile will function differently. Since this is just a leak, we recommend taking this information with a grain of salt.

CoD Mobile Season 5 Battle Pass rewards

Each new seasonal update brings a brand-new Battle Pass filled with content for players to unlock by progressing through the Battle Pass tiers, including new weapons, equipment, characters, and cosmetics

The Season 5 Battle Pass is unique for featuring a female-led cast. The free version of the Battle Pass will get you the Echo Tactical Grenade, Tiki Troops Shotgun, Oden Assault Rifle, and other rewards.

If you’re willing to purchase the premium Battle Pass then you can get your hands on new skins for Park, Rivas, and Rosa. You’ll also unlock the new female Operator called Rampage along with weapon blueprints for guns like the AK-47 and PKM.


That covers everything that you need to know about CoD Mobile Season 5 so far. We’ll be sure to update this guide with more information as the season draws near, so check back with us soon!

How to unlock the Oden in CoD Mobile Season 5

CoD Mobile Season 5 will feature the Modern Warfare Oden AR, and here’s how to unlock the weapon in the new season.

Published

on

The Oden Assault Rifle from Modern Warfare will be making its Call of Duty Mobile debut in Season 5, Tropical Vision, and here’s how you can get your hands on the powerful weapon.

New CoD Mobile content is right around the corner as Season 5 Tropical Vision is set to arrive on June 1. Players will receive an exciting new Battle Pass to level up, as well as a Black Ops Cold War map called Apocalypse.

Of course, we can’t forget the new weapons that are set to enter the fold, and fans of 2019’s Modern Warfare will recognize a powerful Assault Rifle up for grabs. Here’s how to unlock the Oden in CoD Mobile Season 5.

How to unlock the Oden in CoD Mobile

The Oden Assault Rifle can be unlocked by reaching Tier 21 of the CoD Mobile Tropical Vision Battle Pass. Luckily, it is a free tier in the Battle Pass, so all players will have access to the new weapon.

Reaching Tier 21 shouldn’t take too long, and you can rank up tiers by jumping into a few games after Season 5 arrives. Just make sure to perform well during matches!

The Oden was an incredibly unique weapon in Modern Warfare and it certainly wasn’t for everyone. It seems its notorious slow-firing characteristic will also be present in CoD Mobile.

Sure, the Oden may have a slow rate of fire, but the sheer power of the Assault Rifle is not to be underestimated. As the devs put it, the Oden “is perfect for defending objectives and covering teammates rushing into the thick of battle.” You can definitely hold down lanes with ease thanks to the Oden’s damage output.

CoD Mobile players will also be able to get their hands on a Mythic Oden Weapon Blueprint that boasts a sleek design. The Blueprint is an energy-based configuration so it’s sure to look cool in-game.

Call of Duty Warzone Mobile: Studios, leaks, Closed Alpha, everything we know

Activision have confirmed that Call of Duty: Warzone is coming to mobile. We have all the latest news and information about Warzone Mobile.

Published

on

CoD: Mobile has been extremely successful, and now Activision are looking to make a mobile version of Warzone. Here’s everything we know about it, including its studios, potential maps, and more.

Activision have dominated the first-person shooter market with their Call of Duty games. Titles like Modern Warfare (2019), Black Ops Cold War, Vanguard, and Warzone have a solid fanbase.

CoD: Mobile is also massively successful, and now the developers are looking to make another hand-held title. They have plans to make a Warzone game that will be available on mobile.

Here’s everything we know about Call of Duty Warzone: Mobile so far.

Does Warzone 2 have a release date?

At the time of writing, we do not have any confirmed information concerning the release date of Warzone Mobile. Activision confirmed on March 10 that the game is in development, but they’ve not provided the release date yet.

Prior to the official announcement of the game, a few leaks suggested that the handheld battle royale game could see a release as early as 2022. However, this is purely speculation, and we’ll be sure to update you as soon as we know the official release date.

Call of Duty: Warzone Mobile details & new studios

The topic of conversation was really put under the spotlight when Activision officially announced that Warzone is coming to mobile. Along with the announcement, Activision also declared that they will be hiring individuals to work on the project.

Activision are aiming to hire talented individuals to help work on the game. “From production roles to engineering, design, art, marketing, and more, we’re looking for game-makers, passionate fans, and genuinely awesome people to join our diverse team, inspired to deliver the next world-class mobile gaming experience to fans,” they announced.

If you’re interested in being a part of the team that is tasked to develop Warzone Mobile, then you can visit Activision’s job board to see if any of the roles align with your skills.

Activision have gathered several notable gaming studios and teams to work on the project. Solid State Studios (Activision’s new internal mobile team), Digital Legends, Beenox, Activision Shanghai, and Demonware will all come together to develop Warzone Mobile.

Warzone Mobile Project Aurora Closed Alpha

Thanks to a Call of Duty blog post, we know that the official codename for Warzone Mobile is Project Aurora. The blog confirmed that the game’s development is set to continue and that a Closed Alpha period would begin soon, “the game is still in development, and we are in the midst of our first gameplay test in the Project Aurora Closed Alpha.”

Unfortunately, players cannot sign up to the Alpha and can only access an early version of Warzone Mobile through private invitations.

The devs explained the reason behind the small test group, “the Closed Alpha is limited in size and with it we are looking to simply start to improve tuning, stress test matches, identify and fix bugs, as well as collect feedback and insights on all aspects of the game as new features come online.”    

The blog did not offer a ton of information as the Call of Duty team remain tight-lipped about Warzone Mobile details.

Call of Duty: Warzone Mobile map leaks

While Activision haven’t officially revealed the locations that Warzone Mobile players will be able to drop into, a report from Call of Duty data miner ‘TheGhostOfHope, hints that the classic Verdansk map will make its return.

The leaker also claimed that the Verdansk in Warzone Mobile will be an alternative version of the classic map, featuring a mix of certain familiar POIs that fans have seen before along with some new locations.

However, this is just a leak and this information has not been officially verified by Activision yet. So, it’s worth taking it with a grain of salt until the developers confirm the return of Verdansk.
