CoD Mobile Season 5 In Deep Water theme

After a sunny season in the Spurned & Burned update, CoD Mobile is now taking a dip underwater.

Season 5 is officially titled ‘In Deep Water,’ as an early teaser trailer showed weapons and ammunition floating through the sea. 

It’s still early days yet so there’s no telling how big of an impact this focus may have throughout the full season, though we already have some aquatic-themed characters and events out of the gate.

The full CoD Mobile Season 5 roadmap.

One of the first official Season 5 reveals locked in three new maps for CoD Mobile. Suldal Harbor, Docks, and Aniyah Incursion are all arriving in CoD Mobile’s fifth season. All three are from 2019’s Modern Warfare, having landed across various seasons during Infinity Ward’s latest release.

Suldal Harbor is a direct remake of Harbor from the very first CoD title and is fit for most standard playlists. Docks is a smaller map in comparison, designed from the ground up for 2v2 Gunfight modes instead.

Last but not least, Aniyah Incursion is another regular-sized map built with 6v6 objective play in mind.

CoD Mobile Season 5 Sea of Steel event

Staying in line with the Season 5 theme, Sea of Steel is the first limited-time event that kicked things off in Season 5. Similar to previous in-game takeovers, this event forces players to pick a faction and fight on behalf of their team.

Completing various objectives, daily tasks, and capturing nodes on the LTM map will all help on your way to an overall victory in Sea of Steel. Of course, expect plenty of exclusive rewards for your efforts along the way.
