Activision has teased the arrival of an iconic Call of Duty: Modern Warfare map in CoD Mobile, as they look to give fans the perfect arena to settle their beef.

CoD Mobile dropped back in October, giving fans of the iconic franchise a chance to test their skills on a different platform. Though, the game is pretty unique to those that have come before it – as it allows players to do battle on a selection of maps from a collection of different CoD titles.

You’ve got Crash, Crossfire, and Killhouse from Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, Firing Range, Hijacked, and Nuketown from Black Ops – and Standoff from Black Ops 2 – but the developers look to be introducing another iconic map from Modern Warfare series.

On April 11, the PlayCoDMobile Twitter account tweeted out an image of a desert-looking setting with a pretty simple caption attached: “if you know, you know,” while also noting that the location is “coming soon.”

Some fans might not have instantly recognized what the cryptic post was getting at, considering there isn’t exactly a map giving it away, but plenty of others realized what it was pretty quickly – a teaser for the arrival of Rust in CoD Mobile.

Of course, since being introduced back in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Rust has become synonymous with CoD fans who want to settle a beef or just own an opposing player with their gun skill.

Though, the map has gone through a few changes since it was first played all the way back in 2009. It was adapted in Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare to make the map ‘Excess’, before receiving a few tweaks when introduced in CoD: Modern Warfare Season Two.

Seeing as CoD Mobile has used maps in their original form, it seems pretty likely that the Modern Warfare 2 version will be the one that is added.

When that will be, however, is a different question altogether, but it shouldn’t be too far away considering the new tease.

Activision has announced the second iteration of the CODE Bowl, which brings together high-profile esports players and members of the US and UK military esports teams to help raise money for the Call of Duty Endowment. Here’s what you need to know.

The Call of Duty Endowment has been raising money for veterans for a while now. The company, which was started in 2009, helps veterans find jobs after their deployment. In 2019, the owner of the company, Activision, held the first Modern Warfare CODE Bowl, which brought together major streamers and members of the US Army esports team.

Fast forward to December 2020 and Activision is continuing this tradition with two major changes: Black Ops Cold War is the name of the game this time around, and members of the UK military will also be participating. Here’s everything you need to know about how to watch the tournament.

Who’s participating?

Like last year’s tournament, the 2020 CODE Bowl will feature teams made up of famous streamers/pro-players, including Courage, LEGIQN, Huskerrs, Swagg, TeeP, Espresso, Vikkstar, Tommey, C9Emz, and Spratt. According to Activision, more will be announced in the near future.

Beyond that, however, those players will be joined by members of the US Air Force, Army, Navy, Marines, and Space Force, as well as members of the UK British Army, Royal Navy, and Royal Air Force.

In addition, each team will be coached by a “Call of Duty League professional” but the exact list of those people has yet to be announced.

Currently, it’s unknown how the teams will be split, but all in all, it should make for a pretty interesting dynamic.

How can I watch the 2020 CODE Bowl?

According to Activision, the 2020 CODE Bowl is set to take place on December 11, 2020, at 6:00 PM GMT. If you’re unsure about what time that is in your area, we’ve broken it down for you below:

  • 1 PM EST
  • 10 AM PST
  • 3 AM JST (Saturday, December 12, 2020)
  • 5 AM AEDT (Saturday, December 12, 2020)

In addition, the event will be streamed entirely on Call of Duty’s YouTube and Twitch channels. It’s currently unknown if the event is going to be streamed on the above players’ respective accounts, but one would imagine they would be. Embeds for each stream will be added once they become available.
