Activision has officially rolled out the Call of Duty: Mobile 2021 Season 1 update, titled New Order, which includes brand new weapons, the battle pass, new modes, and more.
We’ve known that some more content was coming to CoD Mobile for a while now but now, but now it’s all finally been added to the game.
With it now being 2021, Activision decided to reset the season number back to Season 1, but the amount of new stuff that’s been brought in will keep players busy for a while; here’s everything you need to know about the update.
When is CoD Mobile Season 1? Release date details
Season 1: The New Order arrived on the evening of January 26, 2021. Here are the worldwide release times:
- January 26
- 4:00 PM PST
- 6:00 PM CST
- 7:00 PM EST
- January 27
- 12 AM GMT (UK)
- 1:00 AM CET (Europe)
- 10 AM AEDT (Australia)
Two new weapons in CoD Mobile Season 1: FR .556 & SKS
Like other CoD Mobile Seasons, The New Order has introduced two brand new weapons into the fold. The first is the FR .556 burst rifle, which is modeled after the FAMAS from previous COD games. The weapon was previously teased by the developers a few days ago, making its inclusion here not that surprising.
The other weapon, which is set to be introduced sometime in mid-February, is the SKS marksman rifle, which was featured in Modern Warfare (2019) and Warzone as a post-launch weapon.
Currently, there’s no specific rollout date for the SKS, meaning players will just have to wait and see when it gets released.
CoD Mobile Season 1 brings new original map: Requiem
As previously announced, the update saw the inclusion of a brand new map: Requiem. Unlike most of the other maps in CoD Mobile, this one is completely original, designed brand new from the ground up.
According to the devs, the new map takes place in the “dilapidated remains of a shopping complex” and seems to have a decent level of verticality to it. Of course, only time will tell how it actually plays.
New modes in CoD Mobile Season 1: multiplayer & battle royale
It wouldn’t be a CoD Mobile season without some new modes coming to the game. First up is 3v3 Gunfight, which, of course, is just a variant of the fan-favorite mode already featured in the game.
The second is Attack of the Undead, which is returning after it was added and then removed from the game in mid-to-late-2020. In this mode, which is similar to Infected from previous CoD games, a team of survivors has to fight against undead players.
Finally, battle royale fans can now try out Blitz, a variant of the normal BR mode with smaller circles and less time, which results in a faster-paced experience. All in all, it sounds like a version of Mini-Royale from Warzone.
CoD Mobile Season 1 Battle Pass and skins
Of course, a new battle pass as well, which includes a new Operator Skill, Flashbang, Concussion grenade, and the FR .556 rifle, all for free:

New Gas Grenade and Desperado in CoD Mobile Season 1
With this update, a brand new tactical called Gas Grenade has been added, which can be used to slow down enemies and emit green smoke to obscure visibility.
Along with it comes Desperado, a new class for the battle royale mode – equipped with the controversial Last Stand trait. The class also includes an armored shield turret that can be placed down.
New Fight for Humanity event coming in CoD Mobile Season 1
Finally, the developers have also confirmed that a new event called Fight For Humanity will be coming to the game sometime during the season, but failed to give an exact release date.
The event will task users with choosing between two teams, Atlas or Cordis, and will reward players for completing certain tasks as a member of each team. Other details about the event are scarce but given how far we are from the release date, it should be only a matter of time before we learn more.
