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.

Season 2 of Warzone and Black Ops Cold War brought with it the new LC10 SMG. Here’s everything you need to know to secure the fast-firing weapon for yourself. 

A brand new Season in BOCW and Warzone means brand new content. While the new Outbreak mode and various maps might have stolen the spotlight, Season 2 came with fresh weapons that can’t be underestimated.

The LC10 marks the seventh SMG in Treyarch’s latest title. Despite having a lesser damage output than most SMGs, it comes with unique benefits. It’s one of the most accurate guns in its class, even with an extraordinary rate of fire.

Regardless of what you play, this gun is sure to be a popular pick across both Warzone and BOCW multiplayer.

Here’s how you can grab the new weapon for yourself in Season 2.

The LC10 is now one of the fastest SMGs in Warzone & BOCW.

If you’re looking to grab the new SMG as soon as possible, you’re in luck. You won’t have to grind a specific challenge or play out of your comfort zone for this one.

The LC10 is unlocked at Tier 31 of the Season 2 Battle Pass. Since the Battle Pass overlaps across both Warzone and BOCW, you’ll be earning progress no matter what you play.

31 Tiers will likely take a couple of sessions to grind through. But in due time, the LC10 will be yours just by playing Call of Duty.

You’ll be able to grab the LC10 SMG through the Season 2 Battle Pass.

No different from previous Battle Passes, Season 2 comes with free and premium options. This means you can buy your way through Tiers, rather than dumping time into the game and earning XP.

Individual Tiers will run you $1.50 each. However, you can purchase the Battle Pass Bundle for 2,400 CP to start out. This gets you through the first 20 Tiers instantly, leaving just 11 Tiers to buy after.

Since it’s the latest SMG, the LC10 is sure to be a common pick over the next few weeks. Unlocking it early could be your best bet to get ahead of the curve in both Warzone and BOCW multiplayer.
