Call of Duty Mobile reveals Days of Summer Event: rewards, skins, more

Call of Duty Mobile’s Days of Summer Event has arrived as all-new Legendary cosmetics can now be unlocked through a series of fresh challenges.

Season 8 is well underway as dedicated players have grown familiar with an assortment of new modes and maps. While an earlier overview teased that a Days of Summer Event would soon be on its way, fans didn’t quite know what to expect.

Activision has surprisingly dropped the summer-themed content in a July 28 update and we’ve got you covered with a full rundown.

The limited-time celebration comes boasting new Legendary skins that can be unlocked through 12 unique tasks. An H20 Purifier variant headlines the content drop but players can also unlock random items just by playing.

Instead of simply changing the colors of the weapon, this Legendary unlock converts the Purifier into a “giant toy spray gun.” If you’re wanting to get your hands on Call of Duty Mobile’s super soaker immediately, here’s what you’ll need to do.

While other summery items and new XP boosts can be acquired in the limited-time event, the Purifier skin is what sets Days of Summer apart. In order to claim everything the Season 8 event has on offer, you’ll need to complete new challenges.

No different from previous content drops, ticking off various tasks is how you’ll earn these cool new items. Most of the tasks can be smashed out in just a single session, but others might take a little longer. Once you’re through with all 12 tasks, the Legendary Purifier will be yours.

The 12 new Days of Summer tasks are now live in CoD Mobile. Some will require you to play for a certain amount of time. Meanwhile, others will have you dropping into Season 8’s Juggernaut mode. All of the necessary tasks can be found below.

  •  Play 3 Juggernaut Matches
  •  Play 10 Juggernaut Matches
  •  Select the Highrise map in MP-Featured and Kill 15 Enemies on it
  •  Select the Highrise map in MP-Featured and Play 5 MP Matches with Friends on it
  •  Kill 30 Enemies in Juggernaut Matches
  •  Stay Online for 15 min in total
  •  Stay Online for 30 min in total
  •  Stay Online for 45 min in total
  •  Stay Online for 60 min in total
  •  Play 3 Gunfight Matches
  •  Send 5 XP cards to Friends
  •  Play 5 Kill Confirmed Matches

There’s no telling just how long the Days of Summer event will be around for. There could still be a few secret cosmetic items on the way as the celebration rages on.

Be cautious when you next jump into the mobile shooter. While water guns might seem like harmless fun at first, the Purifier is still just as lethal.

NICKMERCS rates the best Warzone players from to Scump to HusKerrs

Tasked with drafting a team for a Call of Duty: Warzone tournament, NICKMERCS went through some of the game’s biggest names, ranking them while determining who he would most want to duo with.

To start Davis ‘Hitch’ Edwards’ $10,000 “Cracked Creators” Warzone tournament, 16 creators were tasked with drafting their duo from 16 “cracked” streamers.

As one of the creators allowed to select their tandem, NICKMERCS sifted through 16 of the game’s best to determine who he would prefer to play with.

Ultimately, the FaZe streamer ended up putting his decision to a poll among his fans. But, before doing so, he originally went through all 16 and gave thoughts on how each of them ranks. And the options were varied, but all shared one thing in common: talent.

With professional Call of Duty League players like Matthew ‘FormaL’ Piper and Seth ‘Scump’ Abner available, as well as Warzone streamers like Aydan and HusKerrs, the candidates were excellent. Still, NICKMERCS sifted through and broke down who he truly believes ranks as the battle royale’s best.

Segment begins at 00:20:45.

NICKMERCS starts by going through the list and just expressing what an absolute struggle it will be to pick from such a talented crop of peers: “Oh, it’s going to be so hard to pick man … No matter what, everybody that I would pick from is cracked.” But, after going through and complimenting practically everybody, he starts the process of elimination.

Since Nick chooses second after DrDisrespect, he immediately eliminates Zlaner as Doc’s likely first pick. Then, he eliminates JoeWo with two simple reasons: “I’ve never played with him and every time I play against him, I beat that little ass.”

Then, BobbyPoff is gone: “BobbyPoff, I love the guy, but take him off the list.” And the “Scarf Lord” is followed quickly by the Chicago Huntsmen’s FormaL and Scump: “Love ‘em, love ‘em. But I feel like there’s better BR players.” After that, things start getting complicated.

Similar to Zlaner, Nick decides to sacrifice Merk so that he can play with his longtime duo, Maven. Then, recognizing that all of these remaining players are absolute menaces on Verdansk, he goes with two simple metrics to determine his personal preference. He immediately prioritizes controller players and the highest earners in Warzone tournaments.

That eliminates stars like HusKerrs and Symfuhny for their mouse and keyboard usage, while also eliminating Crowder and DougIsRaw for their low earnings. Finally, he eliminates Jukeyz because of his struggles understanding the UK maestro’s accent and decides to put the decision to a poll.


Ultimately, it’s between Aydan and Tommey, with Cloakzy popping on to let NICKMERCS know that Aydan’s been playing some Fortnite recently. That leaves the FaZe star choosing Tommey, noting that “he’s got great communication, phenomenal player, guaranteed to get some chopper kills off rip.”

Despite going through full rankings for his options and landing upon an excellent duo, the decision-making process proved to be futile. NICKMERCS and Tommey could only end in the Top 12 for the tournament, while the easily dismissed BobbyPoff actually came in first place.
