Call of Duty: Mobile Season 7 - A Look at the BR Expansions, New Game Modes, and Other New Stuff
A new update for Call of Duty: Mobile has just landed, and with it, comes the arrival of the long-awaited Season 7. While we’ve already teased some of what was coming in this update on another article, we’re finally able to actually access all the new content. Moreover, while the previews we talked about were based on small scraps of news shared by Activision, we can now read the patch notes for Season 7 and learn everything that’s new.
So, without further ado, let’s dive in and take a look at all the new things in Call of Duty: Mobile Season 7.
1. Series 5 Begins
The Series 5 of the Ranked mode in CoD Mobile is kicking off this June 12 and will offer plenty of awesome challenges and prizes that you can win by playing and winning in ranked matches. This is pretty much standard; there’s a new series every few months in CoD, which reward players for their performance in Ranked matches. In this case, Series 5 begins right now and will last for a few months, which gives us plenty of time to grind and score that sweet, sweet loot.
Along with the new Ranked series, Season 7 also brings a new battle pass with awesome goodies, including new characters, guns, skins, and myriad other prizes for those who manage to level it up. Some of the rewards that you can win by purchasing the premium battle pass are the Hazmat and Alchemist skins for Ghost and Krueger, respectively, as well as a new Epic weapon, the QQ9 – Flood. Lastly, premium players can also score new versions of existing weapons with a Barricade theme. F2P players, similarly, can also earn lots of free loot such as the base version of the aforementioned QQ9 SMG, as well as a new scorestreak, the Cluster Strike.
Like the Series 5, the new battle pass starts this June 12.
It’s important to mention here that, aside from the new rewards and challenges, Activision made many improvements to the multiplayer system, including changes to the rules for earning points in MP mode, improved experience gain, improvements to the matchmaking rules, and enhancements to the Ranked UI. One of the best changes here is the fact that defeating higher-ranked players will now give additional benefits such as rank scores, and the new matchmaking actually matches players according to their performance rather than only their rank.
2. New Multiplayer Game Modes
The CoD Mobile Season 7 update brings one big new game mode, Attack of the Undead. While we still don’t quite know what it’s about since Activision has only revealed the description and the game mode isn’t available in-game yet, this sounds like a different take on the classic Zombies mode, which was removed a few months ago, to the dismay of many fans. Nevertheless, the devs DID say that they would consider bringing Zombies back in the future, and maybe this is their attempt at revisiting the awesome game mode.
According to the description, Attack of the Undead is more like a survival PvP match, where one player is the zombie and must try to infect the others. This sounds like something that you would find in other asymmetrical survival-horror games like Identity V, which honestly sounds really cool. We can’t wait to try out this new game mode.
Other than the returning “Zombies” mode, Season 7 also brings a brand new training mode that players can access to try out every single weapon in the game, without restrictions. You can access this new training map from the multiplayer lobby and practice all you want.
3. New Maps
Season 7 of CoD Mobile also brings two awesome new maps, Tunisia and Gulag.
The first is simply a beach town. Sunny, colorful, easy on the eyes; this new town is a great venue for hosting some awesome close-quarter firefights, but also features some open streets and courtyards for long-distance engagements. The game modes available on Tunisia are Search & Destroy, Domination, and the upcoming Attack of the Undead.
Those who have already played Call of Duty: Modern Warfare’s Warzone mode will know the Gulag. This small, cramped shower-prison hybrid is the perfect place to hold some intense 1v1 fights. Funnily enough, the only two modes available for this map is 1v1 Duel, and Gunfight. The next time you have an argument with a teammate, don’t insult them; challenge them to a 1v1 in the Gulag and show them who’s boss!
4. New Additions to the Battle Royale Map
Like we suggested in our preview article, the battle royale map in Call of Duty: Mobile just got revamped with new zones in Season 7. While most of it remains unchanged, players will now be able to find new areas such as Ski Town, Frigid Wetlands, Harbor, Heat, Black Market, Sanitarium, and Downtown, all located on the northern parts of the map. Keep an eye out for the vending machines in the Black Market, a secret room in the Sanitarium, and the Ball Room in the Downtown areas to score some extra loot!
Additionally, players can now find and drive a powerful tank vehicle armed with a high-caliber machine gun and an explosive main battery. The tank will drop on the battlefield near the middle of the match and the first player who reaches will have a massive advantage over the others. However, this armored vehicle takes a lot of damage from explosives if attacked from the back.
Lastly, there are also a few new attachments for this game mode, including a powerful flashlight to blind your enemies while aiming down the sights, a new dead silence suppressor that allows you to fire without popping up on the enemy’s radar, and an iron hand stock that increases your movement speed and stability while aiming down the sights.
Season 7 of Call of Duty: Mobile looks absolutely fantastic. Between the new map and game modes, and the additions to BR and improved UI, as well as the plethora of improvements to the multiplayer matchmaking system, there’s quite a lot to be excited about with this patch.
