When does CoD Mobile Season 3 start? New season’s content revealed
Call of Duty: Mobile Season 3, titled Tokyo Escape has officially been revealed, so when can we expect this next major content drop, and what does it include?
Rather than having Season 14, Call of Duty: Mobile reset to Season 1 again in January 2021. We’re now approaching the end of Season 2, so players are eagerly anticipating the next major content drop with Season 3.
CoD Mobile Season 2 had a Modern Warfare theme, bringing across a plethora of content from 2019’s entry to the franchise. Weapons such as the AS VAL and SP-R 208 arrived in the game, as well as fan-favorite maps Shoot House and Shipment.
Call of Duty Mobile’s devs revealed everything coming in Season 3, including the official release date, new weapons, maps, and modes. Here’s everything we know about the new season.
CoD Mobile Season 3 start date
CoD Mobile revealed the official release date for Season 3 in a tweet on April 13.
Tokyo Escape, CoD Mobile’s third season is set to launch on April 16 at 5PM PT. That’s the early hours of April 17 for players from Europe.
What’s coming in CoD Mobile Season 3?
CoD Mobile’s devs have revealed the content coming to the mobile shooter in Season 3.
Continuing with Season 2’s trend of adding Modern Warfare content, it has now been confirmed that the PP19 Bizon from Modern Warfare and Warzone will arrive in Season 3, and Cold War fans will recognize this as the Bullfrog.

A new pistol is also on the way, with the CoD: Mobile devs dipping back into Modern Warfare for the Renetti, a powerful handgun that deals big damage at close range.
While CoD Mobile keeps fans happy with remakes of their favorite maps from previous Call of Duty games, Season 3 is set to get a brand new map. In a tweet on April 3, devs released a teaser video for this new map, Coastal, which is already available in the Chinese version. This map has CSGO vibes and is sure to be a fan-favorite for Search and Destroy.

Another map from the Modern Warfare series will also be arriving with Oasis. Set in a “luxurious desert hotel,” Oasis is a medium-sized map that “challenges Operators to battle it out across the hotel courtyard, spa, and parking lot, using every opportunity to outflank and outsmart opponents.”
New multiplayer modes
CoD Mobile’s devs confirmed that two new modes are arriving in Season 3: Swords & Stones and Night Modes.
In Swords & Stones, “Operators deploy with melee weapons and grenades only.” Killing enemies will increase your movement and attack speed and the Shadow Blade Operator Skill will airdrop into the map for players to fight over.

Night Modes arrived in Modern Warfare where players fight in the darkness using night-vision goggles to see. In CoD Mobile, your goggles can run out of battery, so you should “Land your kills when the light’s still on, then slink away when it’s time for a recharge.” This mode will arrive later in the season.
Warrior’s Path event
Later in Season 3, the Warrior’s Path event will launch. Similar to previous events, you must “fight alongside your allies in a bid to acquire new territory and earn new rewards in the process.”
The event will last for fifteen days and players can earn special rewards for ending on the winning side or for being a top contributor.
Devs confirmed that “there are eight Epic rewards in all and one Legendary Calling Card, alongside 10+ Rare weapon camos, characters, and more.”
CoD Mobile devs also confirmed that Zombies will be returning to CoD Mobile “later in 2021” so it’s unlikely that this popular mode will return in Season 3.
More content such as a Prestige system and Call of Duty: Online’s Monastery map has been added to the Chinese version of the game, but there is no way of knowing if these features will arrive in Season 3.
