Call of Duty: Mobile Season 12 is nearly upon us, and the name of the new season, as well as release date information, has now been revealed.

In early October, Season 11 of CoD: Mobile arrived, celebrating the first anniversary of the game, bringing with it new maps, new weapons and some weapon balancing changes.

Throughout the season, perhaps the biggest change was the introduction of the Mythic Fennec, the first Mythic weapon in the game, with fans “disgusted” at the price of it, leaving somewhat of a sour taste in the lead up to the new season.

Now, after only a few short weeks, Season 12 has been revealed, with a name throwing it back to one of the most iconic lines in Call of Duty.

CoD Mobile Season 12: Going Dark

The new season of Call of Duty Mobile will be called ‘Going Dark’, a call to popular CoD character Captain Price, who said “Bravo Six, going dark” in the Modern Warfare reveal trailer in 2019 — and was immediately picked up by fans of the game and of Price himself.

Of course, we can’t gather a lot from the name of the season alone, but it’s very possible we see more of Price and Modern Warfare going forward in the mobile game — especially since it was recently revealed that map Hackney Yard would be arriving soon.

That wasn’t all that was announced, though, as it was also revealed when fans can expect Season 12 to be arriving in a November 8 tweet.

When is CoD: Mobile Season 12 launching?

As in the tweet above, it was only revealed that Season 12 would be arriving “this week,” so between November 9-15.

The launch schedule for seasons doesn’t appear to be very strict, with updates coming any day of the week, but with the last two patches arriving on September and October 13, we could be seeing the Season 12 update on Friday, November 13.

Of course, this is just speculation, but you should be keeping your eyes peeled for the update any day now.

The Pellington 703 is the perfect weapon for players looking to play aggressively with a sniper rifle in CoD Black Ops Cold War.

Black Ops Cold War has three different snipers and each of them suits a different playstyle. For players who prefer to push others and maneuver around the map, the Pellington 703 should be your weapon of choice.

It’s worth noting that Cold War has the longest ADS time for snipers out of any Call of Duty game. This has led to players struggling to quick scope consistently and writing off snipers as weak. Although there are certainly easier weapons to master in Cold War, nothing will beat landing multiple shots with a sniper in a single streak.

Despite Cold War’s long ADS times, there are a number of attachments that can mitigate this and give you a sniper loadout that’s lethal in online matches.

Best Pellington 703 loadout in Black Ops Cold War

Here’s how you need to kit out your Pellington 703 sniper for the most effective multiplayer loadout.

Pellington 703 loadout Attachments

  • Barrell: 26.5 Tiger Team
  • Body: Steady Aim Laser
  • Magazine: 7 RND
  • Handle: Serpent Wrap
  • Stock: Marathon Stock

Perks

  • Perk 1: Tactical Mask
  • Perk 2: Gear Head
  • Perk 3: Ghost

Wild Card

  • Law Breaker

Equipment

  • Lethal: Frag Grenade
  • Tactical: Stimshot
  • Field Upgrade: Field Mic

This loadout focuses on allowing you to play aggressively. In terms of attachments, the Tiger Team barrel increases the Pellington’s damage output by 20%. This means fewer hit markers and more one-shot kills.

The Steady Aim Laser improves the effectiveness of the weapon at close range using hip-fire. Finally, the Serpent Wrap reduces the Pellington’s ADS time by 10%, making it a perfect attachment for any of the snipers in Cold War.

The Pellington 703 has the fastest ADS time out of any sniper in Cold War.

Moving onto perks, Tactical Mask is always useful to have when running an aggressive loadout that is seeking gunfights. The combination of Gear Head and the Field Mic is a great pairing for multiplayer and allows you to spam your field upgrade on cooldown. Finally, Ghost gives you the peace of mind that the endless spy planes in the air can’t track your every move when you’re running around the map.

Equipment in this loadout is fairly standard but you should focus on using the Field Mic whenever it’s off cooldown to gain valuable information. The reduced cooldown from the Gear Head perk is incredibly useful and will allow you to track the location of the enemy team.

Now, all there’s to do is make this Pellington 703 loadout and try it out in Multiplayer for yourself.
