Activision has revealed what is coming down the line in future Call of Duty: Mobile updates including new maps, weapons, and even a few changes to the battle royale mode.

Building on the success of Call of Duty on both console and PC, CoD Mobile allows mobile players to get in on the action by throwing together a number of classic maps, weapons, and modes into one game. 

By using Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, Black Ops, Black Ops 2, and the newest Call Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, fans can relive the older titles in a simplified way. As this has proven to be pretty popular, Activision has showered the mobile game in updates – and there are still many more to come.

CoD Mobile brings together some of the best Call of Duty maps and modes.

CoD Mobile season six content roadmap

In their May 7 community update, following the season six patch, the developers revealed the roadmap for the new season. Off the bat, Rust and Capture the Flag are the new map and mode being introduced, while the previously teased Saloon location and 1v1 mode are both coming in mid-May.

Before that, though, the Gold Rush variant for the battle royale mode is set to launch in early-May, with Kill Confirmed also getting added around the same time. Another battle royale mode, Class Poltergeist, will also be added in late-May. 

The roadmap for CoD Mobile Season 6 lays out the future maps and modes.

Yet, the new modes aren’t the only thing coming to the battle royale. The developers have also teased a few map changes, seemingly in the form of an extension to the Isolated map. 

In the northern part of the map, above Nuclear Plant and Standoff, there are seven dots listed as work in progress, with their addition set to come in June. Sadly though, there are no teases about what locations they could be.

CoD Mobile’s battle royale map has some new work in progress locations.

Prior to previous updates, the developers have teased their new locations just before they’re added, so it might be the same for these planned battle royale changes. 

Even though it is a little bit of a wait until June, the hype and anticipation will no doubt continue to build until the new updates are dropped.

The Call of Duty Mobile devs have revealed that one iconic CoD weapon is coming in 2021’s Season 1 update, and it should be recognizable to any long-time CoD fan.

For years, Call of Duty fans have begged Infinity Ward, Treyarch, Activision, and anyone else who will listen, for a game that takes the best part of all previous releases and puts them into one.

Increasingly, we’re seeing more map remakes, classic weapons returning, and even character crossovers thanks to Warzone, but it’s CoD Mobile that really fits the bill of what that all-encompassing CoD game would be.

The mobile game has maps from CoD 4: Modern Warfare, Black Ops 1, as well as weapons from Advanced Warfare and even Black Ops 3 and 4. With the first major update of 2021 just around the corner, the devs have started teasing what’s coming next, and we’re getting more throwbacks.

CoD Mobile has characters, maps, and weapons from almost every modern Call of Duty game.

Even though CoD Mobile is currently, as of writing, in Season 13, when the first major update of 2021 hits, we’ll be back to Season 1. Just like how Fortnite is now Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5.

Regardless, when players finally get to play the new season update, they’ll be able to wield the FAMAS. Yes, the iconic Call of Duty weapon, that has been in a whole host of CoD games is finally arriving in CoD Mobile.

The devs confirmed the news on January 16, tweeting out their first teaser for the new season. “A new weapon is approaching! Can you guess what it is?” they said, with an image and it’s fairly obvious that the weapon in question is the FAMAS.

The name of the iconic weapon might get a slight tweak when it is added to CoD Mobile. The devs have tweaked the names of other recognizable guns before, just to give it a new feel for the mobile game.

There’s also the question of whether it’ll be as powerful as it was, say, back in Black Ops 1. Hopefully, we don’t have to wait too long.
