Everything we know about Call of Duty: Mobile – Maps, Modes, and more
Bringing together the Modern Warfare and Black Ops worlds, Call of Duty: Mobile is taking the king of shooters to mobile devices.
With a deluge of information pouring out of the closed Beta, more and more details on Call of Duty: Mobile are finally being unearthed. Announced in March 2019, Call of Duty: Mobile won’t be the first CoD you can play on your phone, but it’s looking like it might be the best.
Currently, the game is undergoing a closed Beta on Android devices in India, and soon to be Australia, while a worldwide release is expected in the coming months. However, if you can’t wait until the Beta is avaible in your region and want to know everything you possibly can as soon as possible, look no further! Here’s a roundup of everything we know so far about Call of Duty: Mobile. From Nukes to Zombies, this app is packing a punch.
(NOTE: This page will be continuously updated with the newest information appearing at the bottom, so be sure to check back often).
Since Call of Duty: Mobile is all about bringing together Call of Duty’s biggest two series’, of the seven maps announced, 4 are pulled from Black Ops games while 3 are from the Modern Warfare franchise.
- Nuketown (Black Ops)
- Hijacked (Black Ops)
- Standoff (Black Ops)
- Firing Range (Black Ops)
- Crash (Modern Warfare)
- Crossfire (Modern Warfare)
- Killhouse (Modern Warfare)
Following suit, the Multiplayer Modes available are also selected from a wide array of Call of Duty’s, even including an oft-forgotten mode from Infinite Warfare. All modes can be played in Ranked matches for XP and rewards or Private matches.
- Free-For-All (8 Players)
- Frontline (10 Players)
- Team Deathmatch (10 Players)
- Hardpoint (10 Players)
- Domination (10 Players)
A core part of Call of Duty Multiplayer, Scorestreaks see their return. Unlockable through in-game XP, the current offerings are the Recon Car, UAV, Hunter Killer Drone, Air Supply Drop, Counter UAV, Missile Strike, Drone, Sentry Gun, SAM Turret, Stealth Chopper, and VTOL.
The weapons and loadout system functions most similarly to Infinite Warfare, in which every gun has increasing Rarity levels that offer more XP and an additional perk or two. These better variants can be unlocked through Ranked Play, CoD Points, Credits, leveling up the Battle Pass, or as a Daily Login bonus.
The base variant of every gun can be unlocked by leveling up naturally, and can equip up to three attachments and a scope.
The list of weapons currently available in Call of Duty: Mobile:
- Type 25
- Arctic 50
- FHJ-18 AA
While the amount of guns at your disposal matches the standard amount in a CoD game, Call of Duty: Mobile also has a plethora of equipment including: Concussion, EMP, Flashbang, Grenade, Semtex, Smoke Grenade, and Trip Mine.
For the first time in Call of Duty history, players will be able to customize their Equipment with cosmetics as seen in the image above.
Images from the main menu have already revealed that a Battle Royale and Zombies mode is coming to Call of Duty: Mobile some time in the future. We currently do not know if the Battle Royale mode will take place on Blackout Island, Alcatraz Island, or an entirely new map.
However, looking at the image of the zombie, eagle-eyed fans would recognize this walker from press shots for Shadows of Evil. We’ve seen Zombies maps on smartphones in the past, from Nacht det Untoten to Call of the Dead, yet using a Black Ops 3 map as the base Zombies experience for Call of Duty: Mobile would definitely be an interesting move.
Players will be able to customize their characters before jumping into battle by changing their Headgear, Backpack, and Clothing. Call of Duty Veterans will be happy to see series’ legends make appearances as well. Alex Mason (BO1), David “Section” Mason (BO2), Thomas A. Merrick (Ghosts), John “Soap” MacTavish (MW), John Price (MW) are the first to be confirmed.
The nuke is back! When players go on a 30 killstreak in Call of Duty: Mobile, they will have the chance to press the Nuclear button and eliminate the entire enemy team. While this nuke doesn’t end the game, it still feels as awesome as it did in 2009.
As of now, there are three forms of play in Call of Duty: Mobile: Match, Rank Match, and Private Match. While Match is where most casual play will take place, Ranked Matches offer the ability to level up throughout Seasons and earn better Weapons, Bonus XP, and more based on your level and placement.
Borrowing yet another page from Infinite Warfare, Call of Duty: Mobile will offer Daily Login rewards for players who… log into the game daily.
In the Closed Beta, the rewards range from 10 Credits to new Weapon rarities to character skins. Definitely looks like something worth checking in daily to receive.
While pricing and items in the Beta are subject to change, the current model is very reminiscent of Fortnite or PUBG. Players have access to a free and Premium stream of content that rewards them with items per each tier, with the Premium tiers offering better loot than the free tiers.
A welcome addition to these Premium tiers is the inclusion of CoD points as rewards, something still missing from Black Ops 4’s Contraband.
The Store allows players to spend CoD points on new guns, equipment, and skins. Currently, these items are exclusive to the Store and can not be earned in-game, however the Beta grants players with 5000 CoD points to start.
Call of Duty: Mobile has two currencies, CoD Points (the circular icon) and Credits (the hexagonal icon). CoD Points will be bought with real world money or earned through the premium battle pass, while Credits are gained by leveling up in Matches and through both Battle Passes.
Credits can be used to buy items in the Store under the Credits tab such as Legendary guns.
Similar to Apex Legends, Call of Duty: Mobile’s Battle Royale will allow players to choose between six different classes before jumping in.
The current line-up consists of Medic, Scout, Clown, Ninja, Defender, and Mechanic. Pictures with their unique equipment and perks and can viewed above.
Since the running theme with Call of Duty: Mobile is combining a decades worth of CoD into one handheld experience, the Battle Royale map borrows locations from both Modern Warfare and Black Ops.
The named locations include classics like Nuketown, Firing Range, Overgrown, Crash, Killhouse and more. This of course begs the question, where we dropping?
According to this screenshot of the Settings menu in Call of Duty: Mobile’s Battle Royale mode, a Vehicle tab might confirm that ATV’s, Cargo Trucks, and more will be usable.
While Call of Duty has only ever ventured into Third Person mode a handful of times, most recently with Black Ops 4 Specialist Spectre, Call of Duty: Mobile will allow players to jump into the battle in either perspective.
Call of Duty: Mobile will release worldwide on Android and iOS devices in the coming months, however a regional Beta is live right now. To get first access when the Beta goes live in your region, be sure to sign up at https://www.callofduty.com/mobile.
