Call of Duty: Mobile is getting two more Modern Warfare-centric maps in future updates as both Terminal and Shipment have hit the public test server. 

Ever since being released back in October of 2019, Call of Duty: Mobile has given CoD fans a platform to play some of their favorite maps and mode while using a number of classic weapons. Games like Call of Duty 4 and Black Ops 2 are represented, but the focus has been on Modern Warfare 2 recently.

Following the Season 8 update, CoD Mobile players were given the keys to Highrise as the fan-favorite map was introduced into multiplayer. 

Boneyard is also available in the mobile game, and it appears as if the popular MW2 maps will soon be joined by others from the series.

Infinity Ward - Call of Duty 4: Modern WarfareShipment originally grew in popularity as a smaller map to settle 1v1s in private lobbies.

Call of Duty YouTuber HawksNest noted that in the most recent update to the public test server, both Terminal and Shipment were added as being available to try out in different multiplayer modes.

If you’re expecting changes, or to see the most recent version of Shipment that is currently available in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, don’t worry too much. Both maps come with their original layouts but Shipment has CoD: WWII theming.

That means that, yes, you can sit with a sniper in Terminal and gun down unexpecting enemies who are trying to cross the hallway of danger or get down the big orange slide from the open side of the plane.

With the maps being tested on the public test server, their official introductions to the game might not be all that far away. Though, the Gulag was tested prior to the start of season seven and was introduced a ways after its testing. 

The CoD Mobile developers have not, at the time of writing, said anything about their possible arrival so we’ll just have to wait and see what happens.

Activision has announced the second iteration of the CODE Bowl, which brings together high-profile esports players and members of the US and UK military esports teams to help raise money for the Call of Duty Endowment. Here’s what you need to know.

The Call of Duty Endowment has been raising money for veterans for a while now. The company, which was started in 2009, helps veterans find jobs after their deployment. In 2019, the owner of the company, Activision, held the first Modern Warfare CODE Bowl, which brought together major streamers and members of the US Army esports team.

Fast forward to December 2020 and Activision is continuing this tradition with two major changes: Black Ops Cold War is the name of the game this time around, and members of the UK military will also be participating. Here’s everything you need to know about how to watch the tournament.

Who’s participating?

Like last year’s tournament, the 2020 CODE Bowl will feature teams made up of famous streamers/pro-players, including Courage, LEGIQN, Huskerrs, Swagg, TeeP, Espresso, Vikkstar, Tommey, C9Emz, and Spratt. According to Activision, more will be announced in the near future.

Beyond that, however, those players will be joined by members of the US Air Force, Army, Navy, Marines, and Space Force, as well as members of the UK British Army, Royal Navy, and Royal Air Force.

In addition, each team will be coached by a “Call of Duty League professional” but the exact list of those people has yet to be announced.

Currently, it’s unknown how the teams will be split, but all in all, it should make for a pretty interesting dynamic.

How can I watch the 2020 CODE Bowl?

According to Activision, the 2020 CODE Bowl is set to take place on December 11, 2020, at 6:00 PM GMT. If you’re unsure about what time that is in your area, we’ve broken it down for you below:

  • 1 PM EST
  • 10 AM PST
  • 3 AM JST (Saturday, December 12, 2020)
  • 5 AM AEDT (Saturday, December 12, 2020)

In addition, the event will be streamed entirely on Call of Duty’s YouTube and Twitch channels. It’s currently unknown if the event is going to be streamed on the above players’ respective accounts, but one would imagine they would be. Embeds for each stream will be added once they become available.
