CoD Mobile Season 2 Heavy Metal Diesel map

CoD Mobile’s Diesel map was previously part of Black Ops Cold War Season 3.

CoD Mobile Season 2 Heavy Metal will add Diesel as a new multiplayer map, continuing the game’s trend of adding maps from past Call of Duty multiplayer titles.

Diesel was added to Black Ops Cold War in its third season, and quickly became a popular arena among the community thanks to its desert setting and fast-paced gameplay. It takes players to a run-down gas station with stores nearby.

You can navigate in and out of these buildings for close-quarters battles. If you prefer to take your enemies on in medium to long-ranged battles in the open then you’ll have plenty of opportunities for that too.
