The Call of Duty Mobile devs have dropped their first teaser for Season 10 and it confirms that Terminal is finally making its arrival in the map pool. 

Ever since releasing back in October of 2019, CoD Mobile has taken some of the most popular maps, weapons, and characters from previous Call of Duty titles and put them into one huge melting pot. 

There are maps weapons stretching back to Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, with Black Ops, Modern Warfare 2, and even CoD: World War II thrown into the mix. 

Even though Season 9, which is all in on the WWII theme, is in full swing, some fans have already been looking to the future and hoping to get some early details. Now, the CoD Mobile devs have dropped their first teaser for the upcoming Season 10, and it confirms the arrival of Terminal.

Highrise was added to CoD Mobile at the start of Season 8, another MW2 map.

That’s right, Modern Warfare 2’s iconic map – which has been on the CoD Mobile test server since before Season 9 – is finally coming in Season 10.

“Attention passengers, Flight #: 83764625 is now boarding!⁣⁣” the PlayCODMobile Twitter account posted on August 29, with a photo of the main building in Terminal covered in rain attached. 

They added that the map is “coming to COD Mobile in the next season,” though the theme and other details about new content are still under wraps, at least for now anyway. 

When Terminal first appeared on the test server, some fans did think that it was coming in Season 9, however, it didn’t exactly fit the theme when that was first leaked. The devs eventually confirmed that wasn’t happening, but told fans to keep an eye on future updates. 

With it now coming in Season 10, it’s safe to assume that the theme will be a bit more modern-day than Season 9 but we’ll just have to wait and see as to what the devs have up their sleeve.

Another Warzone streamer shows hacks live on Twitch stream

Like clockwork, another Call of Duty: Warzone streamer has exposed their in-game cheats while playing live on Twitch. And this time, the cheater did not take kindly to chat quickly trashing him.

Hackers have been the biggest issue in Warzone; with cross-play enabled between PC and console players for the first time, the CoD fanbase has been exposed to even greater levels of cheating than ever before.

Going by ‘festation’ on Twitch, yet another streamer has outed themselves as a cheater on the platform by displaying their hacks while broadcasting live. In this case, they were quickly called out on Twitter and in the chat, leading to deleted clips and a switch to Black Ops 4 gameplay.

With Twitch chat flaming him for being bad at Modern Warfare and Warzone even with hacks activated, festation proceeded to let them know that he is elite on Black Ops 4 and challenged them to 1v1 matches. He then switched over to the earlier CoD title, but not before his hacks were clipped and shipped across the internet.

As shown in the clip, downloaded before its inevitable deletion on Twitch, festation is rolling around Verdansk while knowing precisely where every single opponent is on the map. He can see players, color-coded based on their health, with a structural indication of their character model’s movement through walls.

Similarly, he also has indicators for guns, cash, and armor found throughout the map. Unfortunately for him, that sort of unfair game awareness doesn’t equate to the IQ that matters, as he is easily blown up by a Cluster Strike at one point.

This is likely why Twitch chat laid into him even more, as fans typically shame hackers for remaining inferior at the game even when gaining an unfair advantage. 

Part of the reason why he gained a decent amount of viewers on Twitch was likely because of getting exposed on Twitter. Concerned fans of the battle royale went so far as to reply to a random TimTheTatMan tweet to try and bring attention to the blatant hacking.

In response, new viewers could enjoy seeing the cheater switch over to BO4 and continue to struggle while throwing out challenges to his detractors in chat: “Get on Black Ops 4, watch me smack any of you on Hardpoint.”

This is far from the first time a streamer has been exposed for cheating. In the past, one accidentally displayed his hacks while another purposefully tried to show his off. As of yet, neither Infinity Ward nor Twitch appear to have banned festation, but repercussions seem likely following this exposure.
