Call of Duty: Mobile plays homage to some of the best maps in the game’s history, but fans will have to wait a little longer before the beloved MW2 map Terminal comes to the small screen.

CoD Mobile makes use of some of the most iconic maps in Call of Duty history. From Black Ops’ Nuketown to Modern Warfare’s Crash, players have all of the franchise’s flagship maps right at their fingertips.

The game’s ninth season will be kicking off with a bang, with Shipment making a long-awaited return. The close-quarters chaos will be coming with a unique twist, though, as players will do battle on a 1944-themed port.

Although, eagled-eyed fans who’ve kept tabs on what’s to come will be wondering where Terminal is — especially since it was confirmed to be coming after appearing in a public test build.

Terminal not coming to CoD Mobile Season 9

After the introduction of Highrise in Season 8, players were hopeful that Season 9 would be launching with a Terminal revamp. As with previous releases, TiMi Studios have been putting their own unique twist on maps by giving them a fresh lick of paint.

When asked if “Terminal is coming in Season 9” on the game’s official subreddit, the official CoD Mobile account assured fans that the map wouldn’t be coming in Season 9 whatsoever.

“Hello, we are reading this and no not in Season 9, but it is coming as you may have seen in the public test build. Just keep an eye out for it.”

Of course, since Shipment 1944 will be launching with the new season, it would be a huge endeavour to add an additional map as part of a mid-season update.

With the game taking a leaf out of Modern Warfare’s mapbook with Highrise and Shipment, it’s only a matter of time before players are able to roam the aisles of Terminal. Perhaps Season 10?

Modern Warfare glitch reveals unreleased Makarov pistol

Infinity Ward adds weapons to Modern Warfare with each new season, though it appears even more have been in the works behind the scenes as a secret pistol was accidentally handed out due to a confusing glitch.

Problematic bugs have been on the rise once again throughout Modern Warfare’s sixth and final season. Warzone players have had their runs ended by broken Loadout Drops while others have literally been left in the dark as a result of a game-breaking issue. Despite these problems, every now and then, glitches can actually be a pleasant surprise.

This was the case on October 27 as a player shockingly stumbled upon a new weapon. While playing offline, they noticed something suspicious. One of the AI-controlled enemies was wielding a unique pistol.

After taking them down and picking up the gun, the Makarov was revealed in all its glory. Fit with custom animations, an unfinished model, but all the firepower you’d expect from the classic secondary.

The Makarov pistol first appeared in 2010’s Black Ops and soon featured in the game’s sequel before disappearing. It was usable across the campaign and multiplayer in the first game, though only appeared in the story for the follow-up.

Evidently, it’s an extremely rare weapon compared to some iconic guns in the Call of Duty franchise. Having only appeared in Treyarch releases, it’s a surprise to see the pistol up and running in Modern Warfare.

It appeared as a Renetti on the ground and the icon matched up as well. Though it’s very clear a good amount of work has been put into the gun. From unique reload and inspect animations to its own balancing, it may have been in the plans for a previous seasonal update.

Given the unfinished model of the weapon, however, there’s a good chance we don’t see it properly anytime soon. Infinity Ward could have been testing it months ago before scrapping the gun. Perhaps it’s simply in the game’s files as a placeholder. There’s really no telling at this point in time.

The Makarov pistol has only been usable in Black Ops 1 and 2.

It popped up during an offline session against bots, so don’t expect to see this random bug in an online match either. It would be surprising to see the weapon appear in an Infinity Ward title for the first time after such a long gap, though anything is possible.

With Treyarch taking over Warzone with the transition to Black Ops Cold War, however, it would make more sense to see the Makarov in 2021.
