Halloween Standoff (Multiplayer)
The new addition to the lineup of MP maps in Call of Duty: Mobile will be an alternate version of the fan-favorite Standoff. Halloween Standoff will feature the same buildings and structures as the original one, but the matches will be fought at night instead of the daylight. The new iteration of Standoff will also constitute plenty of Jack-O’-Lanterns to suit the night setting.
Developers will remove the Halloween Standoff after the culmination of Call of Duty: Mobile Season 9.
Havoc Sawmill (Multiplayer)
The ninth season update will bring Havoc Sawmill, an MP map of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare (2019), to the famous mobile FPS shooter. The new multiplayer map will be located in the deserted village of Kastovia and will feature wide-open grounds around the flaming sawmill, favorable for snipers.

New Game Modes
Drop Zone (Multiplayer)
The new multiplayer mode will allow two teams to battle it out for a moving area or zone. Holding such areas will help the players gain scorestreaks and use the care packages dropped in that zone. The strength of a team residing in a drop zone, i.e., the more players will earn extra points.
Developers removed the Undead Siege mode during Call of Duty: Mobile Season 8 and promised its return. It looks like they have kept the promise as the popular mode makes its return to the game with a Halloween theme. Users will play the returning game mode in the BR Isolated map.

A treat will earn the players a candy without any fuss, while they will have to complete in-game tasks to get candy if they get tricked. The candy will further award the XP in the event.
Activision will reveal additional details about the new themed event later.
Clan Wars Update
The ninth season will not affect the Clan Wars ongoing season, but developers will reset the currency to zero. In addition to that, the store items of the current Clan War season will also start to rotate out.
However, the items will be made easy-to-obtain to compensate for the changes, and upcoming seasons will have higher Clan Wars currency rewards.
