Treyarch revitalized the popular Black Ops 4 map Contraband when they added a weather variation to the locale and after the early reception from fans, it seems the developer has given the green light for similar changes in the future.

Along with the March 12 update that kicked off the Shamrock & Awe event on Playstation 4, Treyarch gave Contraband a facelift in the form of a raging Hurricane. Which struck a chord of high praise with many fans.

In a Reddit post, Treyarch shared in on a fan’s excitement of how “awesome” the latest change to Contraband has been playing out, and the company was all too generous in confirming that similar updates were on the way.

“Glad you’re enjoying it,” Treyarch said in reply the player. “We’ve already got plans in the works for more alternate weather versions of some of our favorite maps.”

Though some fans were initially hesitant about weather variations ruining the competitiveness of a map, hordes of players have so far been having a blast with the latest tweak to Contraband.

The added rain and auxiliary sound effects that come with the inclement weather is adding another layer of immersion when matches start to reach their breaking point.

After Treyarch had dropped the news, fans were all too eager to chime in with their own suggestions that ranged from a rainy night variant for Arsenal to a snow or lightning storm for Militia.

The company didn’t offer a target window for release or what maps they had in mind with the announcement, so fans are going to have to wait a bit for incoming news.

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.
