CoD Mobile Season 1 2022: Release Date

CoD Mobile Season 1: Heist launched on Wednesday, January 19 at 4PM PT | 7PM ET.

This date marked five weeks since Season 11: Final Snow came into effect, making it slightly longer than the standard CoD Mobile update cycle.

CoD Mobile Season 1 2022: New Weapons

Two new weapons joined the mix in CoD Mobile Season 1. After early features in the Chinese test build, full patch notes confirmed exactly what to expect.

Up first is the Kilo 141 Assault Rifle from Modern Warfare 2019. Continuing the trend of new MW additions in CoD Mobile, this AR is a fast-firing gun with an optional burst-fire mode. Based on an early look in the test build, it could be a force on any map with a full set of attachments.

Next is the PPSh41 SMG pulled from Black Ops Cold War. This has been a common SMG throughout the CoD franchise having appeared in five different titles.

There’s no telling how impactful these additions might be early on. But if their console and PC power is anything to go by, they could shake up the mobile meta in no time.

CoD Mobile Season 1 2022: New Maps

Two new maps have arrived in CoD Mobile Season 1. One is a unique redesign of a pre-existing map while the other is a new remake of a Black Ops 4 classic.

Hacienda has made its mobile debut in Season 1. This popular design featured in Black Ops 4 and was a prominent pick during that year’s competitive cycle.

CoD Mobile Season 1 2022: New Game Modes

Three unique playlists are set to arrive in CoD Mobile throughout Season 1. Up first is Heist, a Black Ops 4 mode returning with a twist. Players must track down more gold coins than their opponents to win. Though gold can also be used to purchase more powerful weapons and armor.

Payout Search and Destroy is also set to feature in CoD Mobile’s ranked playlist for a limited time. Meanwhile, Red Envelope Kill Confirmed rounds out the new playlists as a 10v10 variant “full of surprises.”
