The CoD Mobile devs have teased a new weapon as well another new map for their Season 10 update – with the map being another from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. 

With the start of Call of Duty Mobile Season 9, the developers behind the popular mobile title threw things back to World War 2 – introducing the Conquest theme, a batch of classic characters, as well as the Shipment 1944.

As the season is quickly drawing to a close, fans are already looking ahead to what Season 10 might have on offer. 

The devs have already confirmed that Terminal, the iconic Modern Warfare 2 map, will be the biggest addition but there is plenty more still to come as well.

During their September 4 community update, where they also revealed a few more shots of Terminal in CoD Mobile, the devs fielded a few questions from players about potential changes in the upcoming season. 

One fan quizzed them on what will be the headline new weapon once the season starts, with speculation pointing towards a Shotgun of some kind. 

“Sure why not, it is a shotgun! A potentially very powerful one,” the devs responded. “We’ll have some news about it early next week.”

On top of that, some fans also believe that Pine – the gunfight map from Modern Warfare – will also be introduced in the new season as another 1v1 map. 

“There is indeed a map called Pine that exists in the Call of Duty universe,” the devs said, with a winky faced emoji. “But keep an eye out this weekend for news about the other MP map (not Terminal) releasing in Season 10.”

Obviously, that answer won’t confirm any suspicions, but it does add further fuel to the Pine fire.

Another Warzone streamer shows hacks live on Twitch stream

Like clockwork, another Call of Duty: Warzone streamer has exposed their in-game cheats while playing live on Twitch. And this time, the cheater did not take kindly to chat quickly trashing him.

Hackers have been the biggest issue in Warzone; with cross-play enabled between PC and console players for the first time, the CoD fanbase has been exposed to even greater levels of cheating than ever before.

Going by ‘festation’ on Twitch, yet another streamer has outed themselves as a cheater on the platform by displaying their hacks while broadcasting live. In this case, they were quickly called out on Twitter and in the chat, leading to deleted clips and a switch to Black Ops 4 gameplay.

With Twitch chat flaming him for being bad at Modern Warfare and Warzone even with hacks activated, festation proceeded to let them know that he is elite on Black Ops 4 and challenged them to 1v1 matches. He then switched over to the earlier CoD title, but not before his hacks were clipped and shipped across the internet.

As shown in the clip, downloaded before its inevitable deletion on Twitch, festation is rolling around Verdansk while knowing precisely where every single opponent is on the map. He can see players, color-coded based on their health, with a structural indication of their character model’s movement through walls.

Similarly, he also has indicators for guns, cash, and armor found throughout the map. Unfortunately for him, that sort of unfair game awareness doesn’t equate to the IQ that matters, as he is easily blown up by a Cluster Strike at one point.

This is likely why Twitch chat laid into him even more, as fans typically shame hackers for remaining inferior at the game even when gaining an unfair advantage.

Part of the reason why he gained a decent amount of viewers on Twitch was likely because of getting exposed on Twitter. Concerned fans of the battle royale went so far as to reply to a random TimTheTatMan tweet to try and bring attention to the blatant hacking.

In response, new viewers could enjoy seeing the cheater switch over to BO4 and continue to struggle while throwing out challenges to his detractors in chat: “Get on Black Ops 4, watch me smack any of you on Hardpoint.”

This is far from the first time a streamer has been exposed for cheating. In the past, one accidentally displayed his hacks while another purposefully tried to show his off. As of yet, neither Infinity Ward nor Twitch appear to have banned festation, but repercussions seem likely following this exposure.
