The Call of Duty Mobile devs have revealed that two iconic CoD weapons are coming in 2021’s Season 1 update, and they should be recognizable to any long-time CoD fan.

For years, Call of Duty fans have begged Infinity Ward, Treyarch, Activision, and anyone else who will listen, for a game that takes the best part of all previous releases and puts them into one.

Increasingly, we’re seeing more map remakes, classic weapons returning, and even character crossovers thanks to Warzone, but it’s CoD Mobile that really fits the bill of what that all-encompassing CoD game would be.

The mobile game has maps from CoD 4: Modern Warfare, Black Ops 1, as well as weapons from Advanced Warfare and even Black Ops 3 and 4. With the first major update of 2021 just around the corner, the devs have started teasing what’s coming next, and we’re getting more throwbacks.

CoD Mobile has characters, maps, and weapons from almost every modern Call of Duty game.

Even though CoD Mobile is currently, as of writing, in Season 13, when the first major update of 2021 hits, we’ll be back to Season 1. Just like how Fortnite is now Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5.

Regardless, when players finally get to play the new season update, they’ll be able to wield the FAMAS and the SKS. Yes, both iconic Call of Duty weapons, that have been in a whole host of CoD games, are finally arriving in CoD Mobile.

The devs confirmed the news on January 16, tweeting out their first teaser for the new season. “A new weapon is approaching! Can you guess what it is?” they said, with an image and it’s fairly obvious that the weapon in question is the FAMAS.

They soon followed up with another post teasing the SKS. The powerful Marksman Rifle has featured in both Modern Warfare and Black Ops titles over the year. Now, it’s on its way to CoD Mobile.

The names of these iconic weapons might be slightly different when added into CoD Mobile. The devs have tweaked the names of other recognizable guns before, just to give it a new feel for the mobile game.

There’s also the question of power. Will they be just as powerful as they were before? Only time will tell but CoD Mobile’s next major update isn’t too far off. Keep your eyes peeled in the coming days as we get closer to the Season 1 update.
