New CoD Mobile BR mode: Tank Battle

Season 2, titled Day of Reckoning, will add two new game modes to CoD Mobile, one of which is Tank Battle – arriving on March 19. Activision made it clear that it’s “unlike anything [they’ve] had before in the game.”

While details are scarce, it’s clear that it will focus on tank warfare and players will be able to call in their own tanks through a new mechanic.

You’ll have to collect pieces of a tank in order to build it, and then use it against your opponents in battle. Since every player could have their own tank, we can expect a ton of explosive action from this mode.

Alcatraz is now a temporary map

One of the biggest changes in Season 2 is that the Alcatraz map will no longer be permanent. The devs explained that this is because it has a relatively lower player base than other locations in the battle royale.

“With any mode or map, the permanency of that solely relies on how much it is being played,” they stated. “While there is plenty of positive reception about Alcatraz, we no longer wish to keep it constantly active and are bringing it back to the limited time mode rotation.”

So, you’ll only be able to play in this map during specific periods of time. Luckily, the next opportunity is on April 9, so you’ll get to drop in soon enough.
