Call of Duty: Mobile has taken the world by storm since its launch in late 2018 and amassed a massive following in FPS enthusiasts worldwide. The app currently has over 5.6 million reviews on Google Play, which is absolutely crazy. We wouldn’t be surprised if the fanbase on the mobile version of the game is larger than its PC counterparts, if not the consoles.
However, not content to sit on their success, the developers at Activision are constantly releasing new content updates for Call of Duty: Mobile, with the latest patch, dubbed “patch 2.0,” probably being the largest content-wise since the game’s launch in October last year. However, this isn’t your ordinary content patch as this update brings back a very popular game mode, Zombies.
Aside from the implementation of Zombies, however, there is also much to be said about CoD Mobile’s latest patch. In this article, you’ll find all the juicy bits on Call of Duty: Mobile patch 2.0.
Zombie Mode Makes a Comeback!
Remember the game mode that was initially released in Call of Duty: World at War and that has been so popular that it’s been present in most iterations of the game since? Well, we definitely do, especially since “Zombies” are coming to CoD Mobile with patch 2.0! Coincidentally, the Zombie mode in this version of the game is based on the one in World at War, even down to the map where the game takes place.
Zombies in CoD Mobile has two types: Raid Mode, and Endless Survival Mode.
The latter is the Zombies we all know and love, where players must kill the undead, barricade windows and holes, and rack up points as they survive. They can use the points they gather for purchasing weapons and ammo in order to last longer. The objective is, as usual, to survive for as long as possible and make it into the global leaderboards.
The Raid Mode, however, is a departure from the traditional Zombies formula and plays in levels. While similar in gameplay, this mode is divided into several rounds with waves of zombies attacking the players in each one. Depending on the difficulty, the group will have to survive either 8 or 12 rounds, with a special boss battle against the Abomination in the last round of the game.
Keep in mind that there are unique weapons and perks in this game mode, which you won’t find anywhere else. If you want to survive, you’ll need to muster up your courage, find a group of friends to team up with, and pick up the best weapons that you can find. And remember, never back yourself into a corner; stay on the move at all times!
Battle Royale Additions
The battle royale mode in both Call of Duty: Mobile and Black Ops 4 has been regarded by many players as the prime examples of the genre, taking the formula popularized by PUBG and perfecting it. While we’re not sure if we’d go that far, we can definitely say that battle royale matches in this game are very satisfying to play, with its streamlined controls and smooth movement, while still remaining competitive and entertaining at all times.
However, part of the fun in this mode comes from the constant updates and features that are added regularly to the map such as perks, guns, cosmetics, and so on. CoD Mobile patch 2.0 brings even more additions to this game mode by expanding the map with new zones.
The two new areas in question consist of a snow biome in the far north of the map, and a circus area near the southern end. While the snowy area is large, with multiple buildings, slopes, and other types of terrain, the circus is smaller and more cramped, ideal for shootouts with SMGs and shotguns. Nevertheless, both zones are chock-full of valuable loot so they’re likely to become hotspots before long.
However, always remember, whether snow or rain, circus or town, if you want to win in CoD Mobile on PC, you better use the right tools for the job; the tools BlueStacks offers you.
Limited Time Game Modes
While the Zombies mode is here to stay, patch 2.0 brings other game modes to CoD Mobile, which will be available for a limited time. Specifically, we’re talking about “One Shot, One Kill,” “Sticks and Stones,” and “Prop Hunt.” Here’s what they’re all about:
- One Shot, One Kill: Armed only with a J358 Revolver, players must dive into the battlefield in an elimination race to become the best player in the match. The first one who reaches 20 kills wins.
- Sticks and Stones: A mode that is sure to bring out the cavemen in all of us. Since you’re only allowed to use a combination of melee weapons, molotov cocktails, and a limited selection of operator skills, you’ll have to use your wits to outplay the competition and become the apex predator of the round. First player to get 20 kills wins.
- Prop Hunt: Another returning game mode, which was popularized with a mod for the first Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. This mode divides players into two teams, props and humans. In each round, it’s up to the humans to find the five enemy players, which are camouflaged throughout the stage as random props. The teams take turns as both humans and props, and the team with the most victories is the ultimate winner. We really can’t do this mode justice in such a short paragraph as it’s a ton of fun. Don’t miss it while it’s available!
Now, while these game modes have been listed on the official patch notes, we can’t actually find them ingame. They’re probably still in the test server and could be rolled out later on.
A small yet very significant addition to the game is the gamepad support to improve your controls in CoD Mobile. Not that you’d really need it since, if you’re playing on PC with BlueStacks, you already have access to superior control schemes using your mouse and keyboard. However, those who prefer to use controllers can hook up Gen 2 (or newer) PS4 or Xbox controllers to use during gameplay.
Controller support, however, is currently limited to the matches as the lobby is still incompatible with gamepad controls.
These are the most significant additions that have just been implemented in Call of Duty: Mobile with patch 2.0. This update is absolutely massive in both actual content as well as amounts of fun. The new Zombies mode is great and is a refreshing change of pace from the standard multiplayer game modes, while the Prop Hunt limited mode is also a ton of fun to play either solo or with friends.
