CoD Mobile Season 6 To The Skies: Release date

CoD Mobile Season 6 is taking to the skies at 5PM PT on Wednesday, June 29. As usual, the latest update will be available to download across all regions simultaneously, allowing players to access all the new content right away.

This patch comes exactly four weeks after the launch of CoD Mobile’s previous seasonal update.

CoD Mobile Season 6 marks return of Favela map

Before things were made official, early intel for CoD Mobile Season 6 pointed towards the return of a classic map. Following on from dev comments teasing “one older map from a CoD title over 10 years old”, insiders implied Favela may be the map in focus.

Now, thanks to some direct posts from the dev team, we know for certain Favela is on the way.

Having first launched in 2009’s Modern Warfare 2 before an appearance in Ghosts, Favela is now be set to make its handheld debut as part of the Season 6 update.

Given the recent Modern Warfare 2 (2022) reveal, and the seemingly imminent return of many classic maps including Favela, a CoD Mobile port is certainly timely.

Jackals come equipped with missles, decoys, and a powerful Gatling Gun.

As a new addition to the game’s Battle Royale mode, “the possibilities are sky-high,” devs teased. With the powerful jet, players will be able to reach new heights and travel across the map faster than ever.

Test server weapons finally arrive in Season 6: KSP 45 & L-CAR9

With every second season in CoD Mobile, devs tend to launch a new build on a test server. While not all content in this unique instance makes it to the full game, it’s often our best indicator of what’s in the pipeline.

Through CoD Mobile Season 5’s unique test build, we learned of three new weapons in development.

Up first was the Oden Assault Rifle which launched as part of the previous update. The two remaining pieces of equipment were kept away from the spotlight, until now.

After weeks of rumors, we know for certain that both the KSP 45 SMG and the LCAR9 Pistol are on the way in Season 6. No different from usual, the KSP will be made available through the Battle Pass, while the LCAR9 appears to be unlockable through an in-game challenge.
