Call of Duty: Mobile Teases New Maps for the Holiday Season
With the delay of season 13, expectations have been high for what Call of Duty: Mobile is cooking up. Luckily, as the expected season is launching soon, possibly bringing new weapons and challenges to the game, the team has also started tweeting teasers about upcoming maps that they’re preparing to launch for the Christmas festivities.
The Christmas Maps in Call of Duty: Mobile
Those who have been playing Call of Duty in the past might recognize the first familiar map that the team shared in this tweet:

Raid was first released in Call of Duty: Black Ops II and features a large estate with a big house and plenty of open spaces surrounding the main structure. The map is an excellent venue for firefights in close quarters using SMGs and shotguns, while also giving AR and sniper rifle users a chance to shine in mid to long range engagements outdoors.
Though they haven’t explicitly mentioned it by name, a festive version of the Raid map is coming to Call of Duty: Mobile. This snow-filled, holiday iteration will reportedly have snowmen, Christmas decor, and all sorts of cool features corresponding to the current season.
Another map they have teased, which was revealed in another tweet, seems to be a Russian version of the classic Nuketown map—aptly named Nuketown Russia.

First debuting in Call of Duty: Black Ops, Nuketown definitely needs no introduction – it’s the quintessential close-quarters map on par with other classics like Shipment. This map consists of a very small cul-de-sac with a couple of houses on opposite ends, and a few vehicles parked in between that act as cover as players run and engage each other. The cramped spaces of this stage make SMGs and shotguns the norm, though some brave souls have been known to use snipers and ARs from the top floors of the buildings.
The holiday version of Nuketown seems to be a complete reimagining of its classic aesthetics, this time featuring a Russian look. Just like with Raid, Nuketown is now covered in snow and its buildings resemble traditional Russian architecture, with one of its houses even having spires inspired by Moscow’s Saint Basil Cathedral. Though the overall layout of the map remains unchanged, Nuketown Russia will be a nice way to get in the holiday mood while also racking up kills and winning matches.
Both these maps are scheduled to launch with the season 13 of Call of Duty: Mobile, which should be going live on December 21.
