Momentum hasn’t slowed down in 2022 as CoD Mobile Season 3 just landed to keep the handheld title fresh with new maps, weapons, modes, and of course, plenty of cosmetics. Here’s everything there is to know about the Radical Raid update.

CoD Mobile has been on a roll to start the new year with two massive seasonal updates full of unique content. From Season 1 which gave us multiple weapons and even the first content creator skins, to Season 2 with one of the more stacked Battle Passes yet, there’s been plenty to keep fans coming back.

Now, Season 3, known as Radical Raid, looks to keep the hype train on its tracks with another hefty content drop. As always, the usual assortment of maps and weapons are in focus, but we also have a few new additions that could help shake things up.

CoD Mobile Season 3: Radical Raid Release Date

CoD Mobile Season 3 launched on Wednesday, March 30, at 5PM PT. This came in just as the Season 2 Battle Pass expired, allowing for a smooth transition into the new Radical Raid update.

This release date also gave players some extra time to download and install the full update before Snoop Dogg arrives on April 1. More on that below.

Following some early leaks, the official CoD Mobile Season 3 trailer was made public on Thursday, March 24.

Not only did this trailer confirm the 80s theme, but it also locked in Black Ops Cold War’s Miami map for the latest patch.

From the characters on display to the weapon skins in hand, the Radical Raid trailer revealed an assortment of new content for the update.

Ahead of any official announcement regarding Season 3, CoD Mobile fans got an early glimpse of upcoming content through the latest Test Server build.

While at first, Black Ops Cold War’s Satellite map was featured in the build, leading many to assume it was on the way in Season 3, that wasn’t the case. Instead, we have a different Cold War map to dive into now.

Miami is now in focus for Season 3. With palm trees scattered throughout and vibrant colors flashing in a brief teaser trailer, the Cold War design landed as part of the Radical Raid update.

After some early speculation, devs soon confirmed it was the smaller Miami Strike variant arriving in CoD Mobile. This close-quarters layout is perfect for fast-paced modes, so expect plenty of quick respawns as you jump into the ported map.

CoD Mobile Radical Raid update brings MAC-10 SMG

Each new season in CoD Mobile typically brings at least one new weapon to the table and the upcoming Season 3 patch is no different.

While multiple weapons and pieces of equipment were spotted in the early test build, just one functional weapon arrived in the Radical Raid update.

None other than the MAC-10 SMG from Black Ops Cold War is now available. This gun has appeared in many CoD titles over the years and its Cold War iteration was among the fastest-firing SMGs in the game.

The Reactor Core Operator Skill appeared in a recent CoD Mobile test build before arriving in Season 3.

Enemies caught in this radiation zone have their maximum health reduced and are unable to regenerate for a brief moment. Meanwhile, the player using this skill gains a defensive buff to reduce incoming damage.
