In a new image posted to the game’s official Twitter account, CoD: Mobile teased an image of the map Hackney Yard, which was featured in Modern Warfare (2019). It appears the map will be coming to Mobile at some point in the near future, but with a bit of a twist that some might not expect.

If you’re a fan of Modern Warfare and are eager to play more of its content in Call of Duty: Mobile then there’s some good news for you.

According to the game’s official Twitter account, a sunset variant of Hackney Yard is coming to the mobile game some time in the near future, although an exact date has yet to be set.

Hackney Yard is one of the only maps in Modern Warfare that received a ton of praise.

If the image released on the game’s account is anything to go off of, it seems like it’ll be the standard Hackney Yard experience, but with a bit lower visibility due to the lack of a sunlight.

It’s currently unknown if there’s going to be any changes to the map’s layout. As the developers of the game like to make each map as accessible as possible due to the mobile controls, there’s always a possibility of it being changed slightly. That being said, even if there is a difference, it shouldn’t be too drastic.

Hackney Yard was one of the few maps in Modern Warfare that received positive reception, with most people praising its layout and verticality, so its inclusion in this game really shouldn’t come as a surprise, especially with the game getting more and more content from the 2019 title as time goes on.

As previously mentioned, it’s currently unknown when the map would make its way into the game, although fans more than likely won’t have to wait much longer to find out more information about its release.

How to get .50 GS pistol in Call of Duty Mobile

A new pistol, the .50 GS, is now available in CoD Mobile – and you don’t have to go through a lucky draw for one. No, you can get it for free through a series of challenges. 

With each new Call of Duty Mobile season, the developers of the popular mobile game have flooded it with new content. Be it a new map, a new event, character, perk, or weapon, there has been plenty for fans to get their teeth stuck into.

Sometimes though, in the case of weapons especially, some of this new content is locked behind lucky draws – so you’ve got to pony up some cash if you really want something. 

In the case of the new .50 GS pistol, which is pretty much just the Desert Eagle, the lucky draw isn’t something you need to worry about. Instead, you just need to complete a series of challenges.

The Going Dark theme is new for CoD Mobile Season 12.

CoD Mobile .50 GS handgun Small Arms challenges

There are seven challenges you need to complete come from the Small Arms seasonal event to get the new handgun, each getting slightly more challenging than the last. 

For example, you kick off with needing to get five melee kills, before progressing to normal pistol kills. In the end, you’ll also need 20 headshots with pistols, which isn’t an easy feat for any player, but its not impossible.

The full list of challenges can be found below: 

  1. Kill 5 enemies with Melee Attacks.
  2. Kill 10 enemies with Pistols in MP matches.
  3. Kill 10 Enemies with Quick Fix perk equipped.
  4. Kill 20 Enemies with J358 in MP matches equipped with any laser.
  5. Kill 20 enemies with J358 in MP matches equipped with any 3 attachments.
  6. Earn Back Stabber Medal 3 times.
  7. Kill 20 Enemies with Headshots using any Pistol.

However, you shouldn’t get any ideas about completing the challenges in any random order. 

They need to be done in the order they’re set. This is a bit of a pain, but, at least it gives you something to target in each match.
