The Activision and Timi developers released the next chapter for Call of Duty: Mobile called ‘Disavowed’ and introduced new events and a battle pass, as well as the return of franchise staple Soap.
Call of Duty: Mobile is switching over from numbered seasons as it did up until Season 3. Now they’re going for more themed patches, with the first new season introducing the change of pace with Disavowed.
The mobile iteration of CoD has already given players a plethora of options when retooling the experience to their liking, and that’s only going to get better with the launch of the next battle pass.
Disavowed Battle Pass
There’s no better way to kick off a new season with a fresh face, and CoD: Mobile are doing just that by bringing back John ‘Soap’ Mactavish and naming a skin for the AK 117 after him.
Players will get Soap and the Mactavish skin right off the bat, unlocking the two Tier 1 rewards as soon as they unlock the pass.
Disavowed will also bring the first female operator into CoD: Mobile with the Urban Tracker design that can be unlocked at Tier 12.
But Soap and the Urban Tracker will only be a pit stop to the battle pass’s Rainbow Knife, S36 Brambles, and Rus-79U Viking that can be unlocked at tiers 20, 30, and 50, respectively.
Spring Into Action LTM
The new season is bringing back one of the most popular LTMs called Warfare, which pits two teams of 20 against each other in the battle royale mode.
For a more focused arena, the One Shot One Kill multiplayer mode will also be released with the new update.
These LTMs will only be available for 24 hours upon release on March 1, along with Double Weapon and Double Player XP.
Zombies out, Hardpoint here to stay
The new season update didn’t bring all good news. The devs decided that after “extensive evaluations” ZOMBIES mode will be removed on March 25.
The devs said that the mode could make a return in the future, but will focus on developing the other modes like Multiplayer, Battle Royale and Ranked Mode.
Meanwhile, Hardpoint is getting promoted to permanent playlist status after the devs saw a ton of feedback in support of the mode. Players can get into the Hardpoint action in Multiplayer, but to access the mode in Ranked you’ll have to be at least Elite to participate in it.
There’s a lot more to unpack from this update, so check out the patch notes below courtesy of Timi and Activision.
Call of Duty: Mobile - February 29th Community Update
Greetings Call of Duty: Mobile Community, we are back again after going through hundreds and hundreds of comments over the last week.

Today we are back and excited with to share a brand-new season with you. Soap is back baby! We are moving away from Season 3, Season 4, etc. etc. and focusing more on uniquely themed names. With this March season we are calling it Disavowed.
Login now, take advantage of any of the limited time exclusives, and explore the new season.
Instead of the normal cadence, we want to instead focus on everything coming up today on March 1st (UTC) and everything related to this season. You’ll read descriptions not only from our community team, but also directly from developers and designers. Let’s first go through all of the major aspects of this event followed by some general announcement and news.

Battle Pass Highlight
With this brand-new Battle Pass we are happy to announce that we will have our first ever female operator in a Battle Pass, Urban Tracker, and the return of the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare series legend, Soap MacTavish.
Of course, that’s just the two main characters featured in the pass, there is also the savagely effective RUS-79U Viking, the Brambles series of weapons and gear, the MacTavish series of weapons and gear, and more. As per usual, there is both a free Battle Pass and a premium Battle Pass available with their own selection of gear to earn and acquire.
Spring Into Action - Limited Time Modes
For 24 hours we are bringing back both two of the most popular limited time modes: Jump into a chaotic 20vs20 team-based experience with Warfare in Battle Royale or the quick, deadly, and precision focused One Shot One Kill multiplayer mode.
CAGE Multiplayer Map
This is our first Call of Duty: Mobile original map and it is a close-quarters three lane battlefield contained within a contemporary construction site. This map is mirrored and the ideal battlefield for fast-paced close quarter skirmishes.
The map is designed in a way where there 'perfect' cover due to the verticality of the map, so be vigilant and keep an eye on your surroundings and not just what is right in front of you. Lastly, there are plenty of unique tactical advantages to be found and mantled throughout the map. Take a quick look at the flyby below and then try it out yourself.
H.I.V.E. Operator Skill Highlight
This brand-new Operator Skill was once a Specialist Weapon in Call of Duty: Black Ops III, now makes its debut in Call of Duty: Mobile! This versatile weapon can be used for defense or offense. Release pods at doorways and block entry points or crowded routes, like when blocking off the routes to a capture point or use it aggressively to make an area a walking bee-field of deadly pods.
Starting today, you’ll be able to earn this skill by completing various Multiplayer based objectives: login, play MP matches, use other operator skills, take out enemies with scorestreaks, or just get general kills. The skill will be available to earn until March 11th (UTC).
Credit Store Update
While it seems like only a short while we last talked about the credit store updating with fresh new gear, we are back again today with another update! Like we mentioned last week, we are committed to frequently updating the store and in providing a variety of ways to earn or grind for new gear. With this update we have the following coming to the store:
· Scorestreak: MQ-27 DRAGONFIRE
· Shotgun: HS0405 - Ukiyo-e
· Assault Rifle: AK-47 - Metal Note
· Assault Rifle: AK117 - St. Patrick's Day
· SMG: MSMC - St. Patrick's Day
One of the most frequently asked questions to these updates is “what about ZOMBIES Mode?” Today, after extensive evaluation we are sharing that ZOMBIES Mode is being removed on March 25th.
We had always mentioned it was limited but with no explicit end-date. We wanted to see the reception, see the feedback, and see how we can potentially shape the mode for the future. However, the mode just didn’t reach the level of quality that we desire. The second map, Nacht Der Untoten, is also not releasing in the global version.
We may bring the mode back, with Nacht Der Untoten, once we can make sure it is high enough quality, but for now we’ll focus on development for Multiplayer, Battle Royale, and Ranked Mode.
Hardpoint Becomes Permanent
Last week after our community update, we saw a huge response to our call for feedback and specifically about Hardpoint. Today, we are thrilled to announce that based on community feedback and in-game participation (when the mode was previously available) that Hardpoint is now permanent!
You can find the mode available today in core Multiplayer and in Ranked mode. However, in Ranked Mode you’ll have to rise to the rank of Elite before you can participate in Hardpoint. Well done everyone, you did it!
Here is the full look at most events currently running or coming soon in COD Mobile:
2/28 – 3/5 ~ Prop Hunt Mode (MP)
3/1 - 3/12 ~ H.I.V.E. Challenge
3/1 – 3/12 ~ CAGE map challenge
3/2 – 3/8 ~ BR Sniper Challenge
*All Dates UTC
We’ll continue to run Weekly Challenges through this Season focused completely around tasks in both Multiplayer and Battle Royale. Check out and complete the seventh weekly challenge, which is live, in-game now, and waiting for you to claim bravery crates or other grindable items.
For now, head out there, check out some Spring Into Action events, dive into the Disavowed Battle Pass or get ready for some of the other events coming soon. As always, please keep sharing your feedback, reporting bugs, and reaching out to us about the game.
From all of us here at Activision and Timi, thank you for the support, thank you for sharing in the excitement of new releases with us, and thank you for pushing Call of Duty: Mobile to be one of the best mobile games in the world. Plenty more to come and until next time!
