Another classic MW2 map is coming to CoD Mobile

The developers behind Call of Duty: Mobile have confirmed that Highrise, the fan-favorite map that debuted in Modern Warfare 2, will be making a return in the coming weeks. 

Modern Warfare 2, as far as Call of Duty multiplayer experiences have gone, is in the upper echelons. The game’s maps had a small, chaotic feel, and encouraged replayability. We have actually seen a host of MW2 maps return in 2019’s Modern Warfare, such as Rust and Scrapyard.

Rust also made a comeback in Call of Duty: Mobile, back in Season 6. We are now in Season 7, and previous leaks suggested that Highrise would be added. The news, however, has now been confirmed by the game’s devs.

Modern Warfare 2 provided some of the most iconic maps in Call of Duty history.

In a June 2o tweet, the official CoD Mobile Twitter account commented that players “wouldn’t want to miss this view⁣⁣”. Attached was an image of Highrise in a more conspicuous sunset, suggesting that the map may have been slightly altered for its implementation into the world of mobile gaming.

The map became synonymous with trickshotting Modern Warfare 2, thanks to the large crane and tall rooftops that overlook the main roof area of the map.

Whether these locations are still accessible in the new version of the map remains to be seen, but fans of the FPS title were incredibly excited at the prospect of revisiting the top of this particular skyscraper.

There have been concurrent rumors that Highrise will be added to Modern Warfare as well, but these rumors remain nothing more than hearsay for the time being.

If you’re looking for your Highrise fix you’ll have to drop into Season 7 of Call of Duty: Mobile – for now, at least.

The Desert Eagle, or the .50 GS as it’s known, is finally available in Call of Duty: Mobile. Once you get your hands on it, there are a few loadouts you might want to consider. 

Typically, with the start of a new Call of Duty: Mobile season, the developers of the popular mobile game add in a new weapon on top of the new characters, skins, perks, and maps. 

With the start of Season 12: Going Dark, the devs added new night mode maps – including Modern Warfare’s Hackney Yard – as well as everything they usually add, but they’ve added new events and challenges, notably, Small Arms. 

Completing the seven Small Arms challenges, in numerical order, will unlock the .50 GS handgun – which is just the Desert Eagle. It’s incredibly powerful, especially with a few different loadouts.

The .50 GS is powerful, but can be a lot better.

Best CoD Mobile close range loadout for .50 GS handgun

With it being a pistol, don’t expect to be using the .50 GS at long range. You might get some shots off, but it isn’t going to work as you might like. 

Instead, focus on getting up close and personal – even if that means shooting enemies in the back. For maximum damage at close to mid range, you’ll want an extended mag, a better trigger, and an extended barrel.

For these, take the MIP Extended Light Barrel, Match Grade Trigger, and Extended Mag A. Take a laser and a bit of tape too, for those panicky, unaimed shots. 

  • Barrel: MIP Extended Light Barrel
  • Ammunition: Extended Mag A
  • Rear Grip: Stippled Grip Tape
  • Laser: MIP Laser 5mW
  • Trigger Action: Match Grade Trigger

Best Akimbo .50 GS loadout for CoD Mobile

Alternatively, if you want to feel like you’re playing Modern Warfare 2, you can work in the Akimbo perk as well for a bit of additional damage.

This loadout comes courtesy of YouTuber TouchKing, who uses a muzzle, barrel, laser, and trigger action as well.

  • Muzzle: MIP Light Flash Guard
  • Barrel: OWC Marksman
  • Laser: RTC Laser 1mW
  • Trigger Action: Match Grade Trigger
  • Perk: Akimbo

The .50 GS can be made incredibly powerful with the Akimbo perk.

As for everything else, you can pretty much finish your loadout however you want – including perks, equipment, and whatever else you want to bring into the fight.
