New CoD Mobile weapons coming in Season 3
🤔 Look familiar?
❓ Can you guess what weapon this is?

If you’ve been playing for a while now, you know the drill when it comes to new seasonal updates. New weaponry is all but a given at this point and Season 3 has more than one fresh addition on the way.
First up is a new SMG that will be familiar to veterans of the franchise. The Bizon is a weapon that’s appeared in a number of titles since 2013’s Call of Duty: Ghost. Now, it’s making its debut in CoD Mobile as the PP19 Bizon and will be available at Tier 21 in the new battle pass.
The fast-firing SMG is sure to be a popular pick throughout the first few weeks but that’s not all. An extremely powerful pistol is also on the way to shake up the meta.

Modern Warfare’s Renetti pistol is also set for CoD Mobile’s Season 3 update. While a sidearm might not sound all too exciting at first, the Renetti comes with some unique features. Not only can it be used in Akimbo form, but its burst attachment gives it some of the highest damage output possible.
If the Renetti works in the exact same way, it’s sure to be a devastating addition to the CoD Mobile arsenal.
Unlike the Bizon, players will have to complete a challenge in order to the unlock the Renetti when it launches.
New maps in CoD Mobile Season 3
On top of the new weaponry, CoD Mobile also appears to be in store for a new map. Developers teased something “familiar” on April 11. It’s now been confirmed that Oasis will be coming to CoD Mobile, returning from 2011’s Modern Warfare 3.
There’s no telling what modes this returning map will be available in just yet. But if it follows MW3’s version exactly, it should be a great fit for regular team sizes.
Not only that but Coastal is also on the way for Season 3 as well. This new addition will be made available “shortly after” the new seasonal update arrives.

Having already been available in the Chinese version, this is an entirely new design built from the ground up in CoD Mobile.
CoD Mobile Season 3 new modes
CoD Mobile’s also set to get some new modes with the launch of Season 3 as well. First up is Swords and Stones, which only allows players to use melee weapons and grenades. In this mode, every time you get a kill, your movement speed increases, meaning players are going to have an interesting time running around each map.
In addition, Night Mode is also getting some upgrades with the new update, although the exact changes haven’t been made clear by the developers.
CoD Mobile Season 3 battle pass
Of course, as with every other CoD Mobile update, the game will be getting a brand-new battle pass for fans to jump into. Like always, there will be both a paid and free version of the battle pass, which will give players new content like Operator Skills, weapon charms, skins, and more.
While the exact list of content has not been announced, we do know that it’ll be 50 tiers, just like it has been in previous seasons.
Riot Shields coming to CoD Mobile in Season 3?
Last but not least, there are sure to be some secrets hidden away in the Season 3 update. One such surprise has already been hinted at in the latest community update.
“There may or may not be a riot shield coming in some form,” the devs teased on April 10. While fans may have expected to use the Riot Shield as a proper weapon, it seems to be coming in a different way.
We’ll just have to wait and see what that looks like, as the developers didn’t officially announce it in their Season 3 reveal post. For now, our money is on some form of killstreak or even a new addition to the battle royale experience at some point in the future.
CoD Mobile Season 3 release date
The developers of the game have announced that CoD Mobile Season 3 will be launching on April 17, 2021, which is exactly when players speculated it would.
While no exact timing is locked in just yet, expect devs to confirm patch times in the near future. We’ll be sure to keep you posted here as a specific hour is nailed down.
