Call of Duty Mobile’s Season 1: New Order update has arrived and we’ve got the full patch notes to run you through the fresh maps, modes, weapons, and more that have just arrived in-game.

With the first update of 2021, the devs have reset the counter. The latest update has scaled us back to Season 1, rather than moving forward with Season 14, Season 15, and so on. Season 1: New Order brings a ton of fresh content in 2021’s first major patch. 

From brand new modes to additional maps, weapons, and everything in between, this is one of the biggest updates yet.

Here’s everything there is to know about the New Order update, along with the full patch notes before you dive in.

CoD Mobile takes some of the best parts of previous games and puts them under one umbrella.

CoD Mobile New Order Season 1 release date & time

CoD Mobile’s next major update is now available. Season 1 went live on Tuesday, January 26 at 4PM PT / 7PM ET.

While the community was left to speculate for a number of days, the devs soon confirmed this exact date and time in a January 4 tweet.

New weapons – FAMAS & SKS

Two weapons have arried in CoD Mobbile – one resembling, and sounding a lot like the FAMAS from previous CoD titles. There is also another that looks like the SKS that has featured in Modern Warfare and Black Ops releases.

Given the devs love to have their own spin on things, the FAMAS has been renamed to the FR.556 in CoD Mobile. It looks to still pack one hell of a punch based on the early glimpse we’ve seen. It also boasts a fast rate of fire with minimal recoil.

Meanwhile, the SKS has landed in-game with its original name intact.

The powerful Marksman rifle is capable of taking down foes in a few quick taps of the trigger. It could shake up the meta with Season 1 so definitely be on the lookout for this new addition.

New map for CoD Mobile 2021 Season 1 – Reclaim

Season 1 also brings a brand new battleground into the mix. After weeks of speculation and many theories pointing towards older maps, we now know CoD Mobile has something entirely new.

The initial teaser shared a resemblance to Picadilly from Modern Warfare, and some fans suggested this could have been it. However, the answer is a little simpler than that.

The new map for Season 1: New Order is actually Reclaim, the map from the Season 13 test server. How do we know? Well, there’s a big Christmas tree in the middle of the teaser that lines up what we’ve seen from Reclaim. 

New Battle Royale mode for CoD Mobile – Blitz

There’s a frenetic BR mode now available CoD Mobile with Season 1. Blitz introduces a faster take on the standard format with “smaller zones, less time, and more action.”

With smaller circles, players will be forced into fights much sooner than in the regular BR playlist. Not only that, but zones move considerably faster than in the standard mode as well.

The mode aims to keep you on your toes while providing a bite-sized BR alternative. If you don’t have time for a full game, Blitz is a quicker option to get the same thrills at a much faster rate.

New CoD Mobile Battle Royale Class – Desperado

Season 1 brings a new class to shake things up on the battle royale side. Desperado aims to blur the lines as an “offensive defender.” Not only does the new class come with a deployable turret, but it also gives you the Last Stand ability.

The Shield Turret can be placed anywhere on the map and comes with “limitless ammo” for its duration. Players are somewhat defended while operating the turret, thanks to its well-placed shields. Of course, you’re still completely exposed from behind to keep things balanced.

Meanwhile, Last Stand allows you to get back on your feet in a dire situation. If you go down, you’ll pull out a pistol and have a chance at revenge. Securing a kill with this pistol will bring you back to life.

With tons of new content to focus on, the update also comes with fresh events and a bunch of balancing adjustments. The full patch notes can be seen below.
