The Call of Duty: Mobile developers have revealed part of what is coming in their June updates – including a brand new map, exclusive to mobile players, and the return of Kill Confirmed. 

With the launch of Call of Duty Mobile coming back in October, Activision has taken some the fan-favorite maps, weapons, and modes from previous console titles and thrown them together into one pot. 

As a result, Call of Duty: Mobile has become a hugely popular mobile title – though it isn’t all because of nostalgia. The developers have given their game a unique battle royale map and kept everything fresh with regular updates and seasons as they’ve even dipped into Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and plucked out the Gulag.

CoD Mobile Radioactive Agent – battle royale map changes

With June on the horizon, Activision has revealed what is coming in their next set of updates for CoD Mobile. The new season will be called Radioactive Agent, and will bring a host of changes to the game’s battle royale map.

In their next update, the developers will be adding seven new locations in Black Market, Downtown, Frigid Wetlands, Harbor, Heat, Sanitarium, and Ski Town. These new northern spots aren’t just the only new things coming to the BR. There is also a fresh vehicle to use and new enemies to conquer.

Kill Confirmed returning in June

Aside from the battle royale additions, the developers have also confirmed that Kill Confirmed will also be making its return in June after it was shuttered out of rotation. 

The popular game mode has, so far, only been used as a limited-time mode it will be returning alongside some other modes next month. However, the Rapid Fire game mode will be leaving CoD Mobile’s rotation come June 4.

They have also confirmed that a new map entitled Tunisia will be coming exclusively to CoD Mobile. A host of the content added finds its roots in old Call of Duty games, but Tunisia will only be coming to Mobile players.

Obviously, these aren’t the only new additions coming in June as the developers have also confirmed that the HBR will be available for free next month.

Whatever else they have up their sleeves still remains to be seen but it is already beginning to look like a pretty stacked update.

Iconic Call of Duty Raid map spotted in Black Ops Cold War files

Eight years after its introduction in the Call of Duty franchise, Black Ops 2’s Raid could finally be returning in a mainline entry as files for the iconic map have been uncovered in Black Ops Cold War.

Treyarch’s fan-favorite Black Ops 2 released in 2012. Since then, we’ve seen eight new titles come and go. In that gap, Raid has only made one other appearance in a global title, that title being Call of Duty Mobile.

While other maps have been rereleased countless times, including seven remakes of Nuketown alone, Raid has been left in the past. However, that’s about to change according to the latest leaks.

After an extended period in the shadows, Raid could finally be thrown back into the spotlight soon. Dataminers have uncovered a line of code relating to the map in Black Ops Cold War, suggesting that we’ll see it return in Season 1.

As a huge influx of Season 1 content slipped through the cracks on December 1, one key line stood out from the pack. ‘S1_map_raid_tu_cairo’ was plucked directly from the latest version of Black Ops Cold War.

Obviously, this doesn’t outright confirm Raid is a guarantee for the next Season. This is the first official reference to the map in quite some time, though, so it’s safe to assume Treyarch has been working to bring it back to life.

Raid might finally be back in a mainline CoD title for the first time since 2012.

The original map quickly became a favorite for its unique design. There were distinct sections that paved the way for vast combat opportunities. Both close-range and long-range loadouts could feel right at home on Raid. On one side you had a wide-open area with a high ground advantage for one team next to a  

On the other, you had a circular area perfect for flanking opportunities. Meanwhile, in the middle lane, you’d often catch snipers peeking across from either side in a near-symmetrical layout.

One of the more interesting tidbits from this datamine is the final word. Cairo is the capital of Egypt. The original version of Raid was set in Los Angeles. So when we see this new version, it could have a fresh coat of paint to fit the locale.

It was an extremely popular competitive map throughout the year of its initial release. Given it worked quite well with essentially all objective-based game modes. From Hardpoint to Search and Destroy, Raid was often a favored pick.

Season One of Black Ops Cold War kicks off on December 10. There’s no confirmation we’ll see Raid in-game from this point on, so do take this leak with a grain of salt until then.
