The Call of Duty Mobile devs have hinted at the new scorestreak coming in Season 11 – and it could resemble the always helpful Advanced UAV. 

As anyone who has dropped in for at least a game or two will know, CoD Mobile lends plenty from some of the most popular Call of Duty games ever. 

There are maps, modes, weapons, and characters spanning the Modern Warfare and Black Ops universes but fans always want to see more – be it cosmetics or something that could impact a match. 

With Season 11 on the horizon, details have purposefully been kept quiet but now the devs have given players a subtle heads up about the new scorestreak that they’ll be able to use soon.

CoD Mobile puts some of Call of Duty’s most popular features in one game.

On September 24, CoD Mobile player and Redditor Bigggbot67 suggested that the devs could add an Advanced UAV or Blackbird-like scorestreak to the game in the future. 

Valued at 900 points, the Redditor noted that the scorestreak has been in Call of Duty games before so it wouldn’t be out of place or anything all that new. “[It] detects and shows the exact location of hostiles on the mini-map,” they added. 

It didn’t take long for the devs to chime in and suggest that their wish could be coming true once Season 10 finishes. “You are unquestionably going to like the next scorestreak releasing in Season 11,” they quipped, seemingly hinting at something similar coming soon. 

While the devs didn’t explicitly say what the new scorestreak will be, it should only be something like an Advanced UAV, Blackbird, or V-Sat. They’ve all done the same thing in different CoD games before.

As for what else is coming in Season 11, the devs are trying to keep things pretty under wraps. They’ve already confirmed that there won’t be a test server and there will be “great surprises” too, but there will be one or two teasers at the beginning of October.

Black Ops Cold War is almost upon us and if you’re struggling to keep on top of the many different versions, early in-game bonuses, and even cross-gen features, we’ve got you covered.

Treyarch’s next mainline entry in the Call of Duty series is fast approaching. After a record-shattering Alpha, followed by an equally impressive Beta, it’s clear that we’re in store for one of the biggest releases in franchise history.

More players are eager to drop into the action than ever before, but preordering can be a bit confusing. There are multiple unique versions of the game that span across five platforms. For veterans and newcomers alike, it can be easy to lose track of what’s included with each edition.

If you’re wondering which to preorder, we’ve got you covered. Below is a complete rundown of every version of Black Ops Cold War.

When does Black Ops Cold War release?

Treyarch’s next big release is launching on Friday, November 13, 2020. Black Ops Cold War will be available across more platforms than many previous releases. Current-gen players can hop in on day one across the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Meanwhile, those with next-gen consoles from day one can access the game on the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X + S. Of course, PC gamers will also be getting in on the fun as well.

Regardless of where you’re playing or where your friends are playing, everyone can still team up. Treyarch has confirmed that Black Ops Cold War will feature cross-platform and cross-generation play for all multiplayer modes as well as Zombies.

Digital Black Ops Cold War editions

It can be easy to lose track of what content and which features are included with the many different versions of Black Ops Cold War. Some come with weapon Blueprints while others come with the ability to play across multiple platforms.

To keep things simple, it’s worth bearing in mind that there are three main versions of the game. If you’re playing on PC, it couldn’t be simpler. Though if you’re a console gamer, things get a bit muddled due to the new generation of hardware.

Below is a full table of what you need to know. From preorder bonuses to the exact features and content provided with each version, use this as a guide before putting your money down.

Physical Black Ops Cold War editions

If you prefer to snag a physical copy of Black Ops Cold War, there are some unique details to keep in mind. With many digital versions of the game, cross-platform functionality is built-in. If you opt for a disc, however, an extra cost is associated with unlocking this cross-gen feature.

For example, if you buy a physical copy for the PS4 but want to play on PS5 in 2021, you’ll have to pay $10. It gets even more complicated if you purchase a physical copy for next-gen and want to revert back for whatever reason.

Below is a complete list of details to be wary of before buying a physical copy of Black Ops Cold War.

  • PS4 Standard Physical edition can upgrade to PS5 for $10.
  • PS5 Standard Physical edition only comes with the PS5 version. 
  • Xbox One Physical Standard edition cannot upgrade to Xbox Series X
  • Xbox Series X Standard Physical edition includes Xbox One copy
