Call of Duty: Mobile developers Garena have revealed two of the new ‘Radioactive Agent’ skins coming in season seven – with the trailer for the battle royale map changes also surfacing online. 

CoD Mobile has taken some of the most popular maps, weapons, and modes from Call of Duty history and given fans an all-new platform to play on. Though, the mobile game isn’t solely a nostalgia trip for fans who are on the go.

The free-to-play game has plenty of its own features, a unique battle royale map, and different seasons with a battle pass. As the sixth season is drawing to a close, the hype for Season 7 has begun to build – with Activision revealing the name ‘Radioactive Agent’.

There are plenty of changes coming to CoD: Mobile.

With that new season excitement growing, Garena – who publish the game in Southeast Asia – has revealed two new skins that will be available with the start of season seven.

These two new skins are variants for Krueger and Ghost, with the former getting a new skin called Alchemist at tier 12, while Ghost’s Hazmat skin will be available at tier one. As you might expect, these skins live up to the Radiactiove Agent season name as they are both wearing gas masks over their faces.

On top of that, a new video showing off all the changes coming to the isolated battle royale map was also revealed – giving fans a better look at the new locations.

This map extension, which comes to the northern part of things, had been shown off in a sneak peek video but this new, nearly two-minute-long trailer points out some more details about the new locations.

While Garena’s battle royale trailer urges players to log in and try out season seven, Activision hasn’t yet confirmed when Radioactive Agent will finally launch.

The new season was set to drop in early June but it has been delayed until an unknown date. Though, the developers have revealed a new multiplayer map called Tunisia.

Black Ops Cold War dev responds to broken Zombies XP growth

Treyarch has responded to a new issue that is slowing down Black Ops Cold War solo zombies players from leveling up their weapons. They intend to resolve the issue as soon as possible.

Players reported the exp growth on their weapons had become increasingly slow. Some experimentation from Reddit user MaharaDTD discovered that it wasn’t impacting public lobby players, but was rather isolated to solo players and those on high round grinds.

Some players reported their guns not leveling up at all between rounds 30 and 100, while others, who played predominantly in co-op lobbies, reported almost no change at all.

The issues come amid a double XP event which should be the perfect time to grind out Zombies games, though. These problems stem from Treyarch combating an XP exploit where players could restart lobbies over and over again to wrack up big amounts – and the knock on effect has been completely ruining games.

Treyarch dev responds to Black Ops Cold War Zombies weapon XP issues

Treyarch dev Josh ‘Foxhound’ Torres announced that their team had confirmed the issue with limited XP growth, responding to the lengthy Reddit discussion with a handful of comments of his own.

“I spoke with the team, and we have identified an issue that was causing lower than intended Weapon XP in both solo Zombies matches and later Zombies rounds. We are looking to release a fix for both of these as soon as possible,” he said.

Torres also confirmed there will not be an extension to the 2XP weekend for zombies players, despite pressure from the community.

He said: “I shared what the team had to share, and then I kept them updated on the community sentiment and conversations. The team investigated and found actual issues. We’ll be fixing them, and we’ll have more 2XP events in the future.”

This means zombies players will need to wait patiently for the chance to grind 2XP boosts and upgrade their guns.
