CoD Mobile’s Season 9 characters, theme, and new weapons have apparently been leaked, and if true, the game is set for a significant step back in time.

As the CoD Mobile seasons have unfolded, players have been able to get their hands on a wide variety of new content that have all come from previous games. At the start of Season 8, the map Highrise from Modern Warfare 2 was added amongst other things.

However, as the hype has been building for Season 9, the devs have remained a bit tight-lipped on what’s coming next. Yes, they revealed that an “entirely new type of weapon” would be coming soon, but amid the recent delay, that was it.

Yet, some leakers have apparently got the scoop on what’s coming in Season 9, and it’s safe to say that if true, it would be a blast from the past.

CoD Mobile YouTuber AnonymousYT posted the apparent leaks of the new character, theme, name, and weapons. According to the claims, the name for the season would be ‘Conquest’ and the theme would be World War 2.

That fits into what has also been revealed by the test server, given that Shipment 1944 should be releasing soon. On top of that, the YouTuber also notes that Victor Reznov, Richtofen, Nikto, and Lev Kravchenko will all be available as new characters.

On top of that, the Kar98K is supposed to be the battle pass reward for hitting tier 50. There also hints about a new SMG, the Striker shotgun, and a new LMG – as well as new skins and charms to use in weapon customization.

Of course, outside of the 1944 themed version of Shipment being confirmed as a new addition, none of the other information has been confirmed. 

You only have to cast your mind back to last season where leakers got the name and new characters wrong. So, we’ll just have to wait and see what happens.

H3CZ acquires OpTic Gaming from Immortals: Report

Hector ‘H3CZ’ Rodriguez has reportedly acquired OpTic Gaming in a deal separate from his ties with NRG Esports, where he currently serves as co-CEO.

The deal reportedly sees H3CZ set to occupy the Los Angeles Call of Duty League spot held by OpTic Gaming, an organization he created and built before its sale in June 2019, in which Immortals Gaming Club acquired OpTic parent company, Infinite, in a deal valued at around $100m.

According to Esports Observer, the acquisition is still pending League approval, and H3CZ himself “intends to divest to interested esports organizations.” This is likely a compulsory step due to ownership rules of the CDL preventing H3CZ having ownership in more than one team in the league.

As the original report says, “sources close to the deal have come forward stating that after negotiations spanning a little over a month, Rodriguez purchased the OpTic Gaming IP in its entirety.”

This would mean that H3CZ owns every asset and resource under the OpTic Gaming umbrella, and that negotiations likely started taking place around the time of the Call of Duty League Championship in late-August.

His ties with Chicago Huntsmen are expected to remain intact, so where the CDL spot occupied by OpTic Gaming Los Angeles goes remains to be seen, though commissioner Johanna Faries has recently insisted that there is “great demand” for expansion slots — so one lucky team might just get their wish.

Naturally, fans want to see the likes of Nadeshot and his 100 Thieves organization find his way back into the Call of Duty League, but after his decision not to buy-in at the start of its inaugural year, it’s impossible to speculate whether he would have had a change of heart since then.
