Call of Duty Mobile has finally added its long-awaited Zombies mode, however, it can be a little difficult to find. So, here’s how you can play against hordes of the undead.
The mobile version of Call of Duty took the different mobile app stores by storm after it’s release on October 1. Over 100 million people had downloaded it and jumped into at least one game within the first week and now the developers are rolling out new content.
Multiplayer has been given a new map in the form of Black Ops 1 classic Summit, while the battle royale has also got a new location and weapon. Yet, the most interesting addition comes in the form of Zombies, though it might just be a little tricky to find if you haven’t got much time into CoD Mobile yet. However, you’ll want to be quick as the mode isn’t sticking around forever.
CoD Mobile has incorporated some of the franchise’s most popular maps and weapons.
To be able to jump into the limited-time mode, which will send you back to Call of Duty: World at War’s Shi No Numa map, you’ll have to have reached a certain in-game level.
It’s not a grind, though, as you just have to be level five to play the Zombies mode. For anyone who is level five and hasn’t played Call of Duty: Mobile since the update, you won’t have to re-level or anything. Simply just back in and you’ll be able to play the new map, as well as the two Zombies modes.
Shi No Numa, or Swamp of Death, is CoD Mobile’s map for Zombies.
The modes you can play including the classic endless survival mode, as well as ‘Raid Mode’ which is limited in rounds and also includes a boss fight.
Anyone who plays Raid Mode on normal difficulty will still have to fight off waves of the undead horde, yet, it is limited to eight rounds before the Abomination boss fight. On Hardcore difficulty, the round limit is increased to twelve.
How long the Zombies mode will be sticking around for is, as of now, unknown so you’ll want to be quick in making sure you’re at least level five so you can a game or two.
The mode could very well stick around for a little bit longer than planned – especially if it’s popular – but we’ll have to wait and see what Activision chooses to do.
Activision has announced some of the first official details about the Call of Duty: Mobile 2021 Season 1 update, titled New Order, including information on the brand new weapons coming to the game, the upcoming battle pass, new modes, and more.
We’ve known that some more content was coming to CoD Mobile for a while now but now, we have some of the most important details about the update itself.
Thanks to a blog post from Activision, we now know that the New Order update, which the developers are counting as “Season 1” of the new year, will include a original new map, two weapons, some modes, and, of course, a wholly-new battle pass for fans to sink their teeth into.
When is CoD Mobile Season 1? Release date details
The New Order update is set to arrive on January 26, 2021, at 4PM PST and 7PM EST.

Two new weapons in CoD Mobile Season 1: FR .556 & SKS
The FR .556 burst rifle and the SKS marksman rifle will be coming to COD Mobile soon.
Like other CoD Mobile Seasons, The New Order is set to introduce two brand new weapons into the fold. The first is the FR .556 burst rifle, which is modeled after the FAMAS from previous COD games. The weapon was previously teased by the developers a few days ago, making its inclusion here not that surprising.
The other weapon, which is set to be introduced sometime in mid-February, is the SKS marksman rifle, which was featured in Modern Warfare (2019) and Warzone as a post-launch weapon.
Currently, there’s no specific rollout date for the SKS, meaning players will just have to wait and see when it gets released.
The SKS will be coming to CoD Mobile during the next season.
New original map
As previously announced, the update will also see the inclusion of a brand new map: Requiem. Unlike most of the other maps in CoD Mobile, this one will be completely original, made from the ground up for the title.
According to the devs, the new map will take place in the “dilapidated remains of a shopping complex” and seems to have a decent level of verticality to it. Of course, only time will tell how it actually plays.
A wholly original map, named Requiem, will be added to the game with the New Order update.
It wouldn’t be a CoD Mobile season without some new modes coming to the game. First up is 3v3 Gunfight, which, of course, is just a variant of the fan-favorite mode already featured in the game.The second is Attack of the Undead, which is returning after it was added and then removed from the game in mid-to-late-2020. In this mode, which is similar to Infected from previous CoD games, a team of survivors has to fight against undead players.
Finally, battle royale fans will also be able to try out Blitz, a variant of the normal BR mode with smaller circles and less time, which results in a faster-paced experience. All in all, it sounds like a version of Mini-Royale from Warzone.
3v3 Gunfight and Attack of the Undead will be coming to the game during the New Order update.
New Battle Pass and skins
Of course, a new battle pass is on the way as well. While we don’t have the full tier list at this time, we do know that a new Operator Skill, a new Flashbang, a new Concussion grenade, and the FR .556 rifle will be available for free.
The premium battle pass will also include some cyberpunk-inspired skins (no, not the game, just the art-style) for FTL, Prophet, Spectre, and David Mason, as well as some new blueprints for the Cordite, Locus, the FR .556, the HBRa3, and the HG-40.
Players will be able to unlock a slew of new weapon blueprints in the battle pass.
New Fight for Humanity event coming soon
Finally, the developers have also confirmed that a new event called Fight For Humanity will be coming to the game sometime during the season, but failed to give an exact release date.
The event will task users with choosing between two teams, Atlas or Cordis, and will reward players for completing certain tasks as a member of each team. Other details about the event are scarce but given how far we are from the release date, it should be only a matter of time before we learn more.
