An exciting new rockets-only mode has dropped for Call of Duty: Mobile and here’s how you can play it.

CoD: Mobile has been incredibly popular since its release in October, with fans praising the game for an unexpectedly large number of features including many different maps, load-outs, and a variety of game modes.

It has even included special events, such as adding Free-For-All for a week, and continues that trend with the addition of rockets-only, once again for a limited time.

What is CoD: Mobile’s rockets-only mode?

ActivisionCoD Mobile quickly became a fan-favorite game.

Rockets-only is a 5v5 where each player can only use the SMRS rocket launcher. Don’t worry if you haven’t unlocked it yet though, as everyone has access to it in this game mode.

The mode itself acts a lot like Team Deathmatch, with the first team to score 30 points by finding 30 kills declared the winner. You can also earn battle crates and credits thanks to new rocket-only challenges.

ActivisionRockets-only is a limited time mode on Call of Duty Mobile.

Playing the rockets-only mode is very simple, all you need to do is enter the multiplayer menu of Call of Duty: Mobile, click on matches, and then enter the featured section where you can select rockets-only as one of three modes.

However, the game mode is only available for a limited time and will close on November 7, so you’ll need to be quick if you want to try it out!

Two other game modes are also currently featured in the game, a Halloween themed Standoff map and the fan-favorite Gun Game, both of which are temporary events.

Activision have not announced any other game modes at the moment, but if October is anything to go by, there will undoubtedly be many more exciting features and events coming soon.

Hilarious Black Ops Cold War bug literally breaks Fireteam Dirty Bomb

A game-breaking Black Ops Cold War bug is suspending players above the map on Fireteam Dirty Bomb, rendering them useless for the entire match.

As with any new release, Black Ops Cold War has had its fair share of bugs and glitches. From players falling through the map to a permanent thermal overlay, its obvious Treyarch overlooked a few elements of the game before releasing the title.

However, if a bug is not game-breaking, players will usually laugh it off and let it go. It’s only when a glitch renders players completely useless that a bug starts to become more frustrating than funny.

Well, that’s exactly the type of bug some players are experiencing on Fireteam Dirty Bomb and it’s fair to say they’re not pleased about it.

Fireteam Dirty Bomb is the new mode released with Black Ops Cold War.

Game-breaking bug suspends players above the map

A video posted to the Black Ops Cold War subreddit reveals a game-breaking bug occurring on Fireteam Dirty Bomb. The glitch suspends the players above the map for the entire match with them unable to move or participate.

On top of this, it appears the entire game mode is broken with teams being bigger than they’re are supposed to be and textures not loading in.

As you can see, the players are left floating above the map and are audibly frustrated at the issue. One of them even states: “I’d genuinely be surprised if they even had playtesters for this game.”

It’s worth noting the players can scope down onto the map below but they’re completely locked in place. Attempting to run will trigger the animation but no movement will occur.

Glitches can be entertaining in certain titles, especially when they do not heavily impact the gameplay experience. However, in competitive games like Call of Duty, a game-breaking bug can be extremely frustrating.

Fingers crossed Treyarch get this bug fixed as soon as possible so players don’t have to continue spectating the game from above the map.
