In another teaser for CoD Mobile’s second season, it’s been revealed that the AS Val assault rifle from Modern Warfare 2019 will be making its mobile debut when Season 2 kicks off in March.

Season 1 of CoD Mobile is scheduled to end on March 10, and the game’s next season is anticipated to kick off the following day. As the excitement around Season 2 continues to grow, Activision and TiMi Studios have been fueling the hype train via the game’s Twitter account.

While the popular Shoot House map from MW has already been confirmed for Season 2, the developers surely have plenty of other content they are keeping under wraps (for now). However, the devs have revealed another piece of content coming in S2: the AS Val assault rifle from Modern Warfare.

After it was introduced in Season 6 of Modern Warfare/Warzone, the AS Val was the AR of choice for many top-tier players.

On February 21, the CoD Mobile Twitter account teased an image of a mystery gun and asked “A new weapon is in the works! Can you guess what it is?” The replies were quickly flooded with fans who identified the weapon as the AS Val from the 2019 CoD title.

The tweet also included official confirmation on when fans can expect to see the weapon in-game: “Coming in the next season of CoD Mobile.”

This was more than enough to satisfy players’ expectations on when the AS Val would be dropping into the mobile title for the first time.

The AS Val reveal is the second major teaser from the CoD Mobile team on what players can expect in S2. With New Order (S1) wrapping up on March 10, there’s still plenty of time for Activision and TiMi to continue hyping up the game’s next chapter.

When it was released in Modern Warfare and Warzone, the AS Val quickly found its way into the arsenal of many streamers and top-tier players. Despite being an assault rifle, the gun provides a powerful balance of speed and stopping power that allows it to compete with other ARs and even SMGs.

Although there’s been no official confirmation of when CoD Mobile’s next season will start, players can expect it to go live around March 11. In the meantime, we’ll keep you updated on all the information that Activision and TiMi reveal about Season 2 before its release.
