With COD: Mobile Season 1 New Order is imminent and players are eager to find out what will come with the first new season in 2021.
COD: Mobile developers have announced that the next season won't be called Season 14. Instead, it will be simply named Season 1: New Order.
As explained by developers, this name refresh will apply to all seasons and Ranked Series going forward in 2021.
"We wanted to keep it clean, easy to understand, and not quite as intimidating as seeing something like Call of Duty: Mobile Season 26: Eggplant Warfare."
And it seems that the first season in 2021 will be stacked with new content, so without further ado, let's take a look at everything that's coming to COD Mobile with Season 1 New Order.
COD: Mobile Season 1 New Order release date
Season 1 New Order is slated for release on 26th January at 16:00 PT ( 27th January at 00:00 GMT). Expect some server downtime to happen before COD: Mobile Season 1 kicks off.
Season 1 new weapons
As always, one of the most exciting things about the new season is to try those shiny new weapons.
And with the COD: Mobile Season 1 we already know that at least two new weapons await us!
The first one is the legendary FAMAS ( FR .556), an assault rifle capable for long-range firefights with a strong burst fire capabilities.
With its great accuracy, it is a perfect medium-to-long-range assault rifle.
The second weapon is a unique one, the second of its type/class for COD: Mobile.
As explained by developers, "it is purely about dominating long-range firefights but with a higher rate of fire than your usual sniper rifle."
This weapon will be available through a Seasonal Challenge later in the season, but we will be able to obtain it in various other ways as well.
Lastly, there's the Gas Grenade. This is a grenade that continuously releases tear gas. Slows down movement, blurred vision and coughing.
New Operator Skill: Gravity Vortex Gun
A new Operator Skill enters the battlefield with the release of COD: Mobile Season One. It is called the Gravity Vortex Gun, which pulls your enemies into a vortex.
While this is a very powerful new Operator Skill in COD: Mobile Season One, the Gravity Vortex Gun thankfully only has two shots. It also sports a unique aiming reticle, and there's no way to get more shots, so make them count.
Season 1 new map Reclaim
The new season comes with a brand new map, not just for COD: Mobile, but for the franchise as a whole.
The new map is called Reclaim, and it is a medium-sized map with a theme of a city being abandoned and left for nature to reclaim what was once part of it.
Reclaim is launching on 26th January, along with the Season 1 launch.
Season 1 new game modes
Developers have confirmed that several new game modes will find their way to Season 1.
The first confirmed mode is Attack of the Undead 20, but we also know that multiple limited-time BR modes will be coming with Season 1.
One of those modes is Blitz Mode, and as the name suggests, it is a fast-paced mode with "a more compact playing field". The Blitz Mode will feature 40 players and will take roughly 10 minutes per match.
Then, we have a new mode in Arcade called 3v3 Gunfight, with playable maps being Gulag, Shipment and more.
Lastly, both Headquarters and Hardpoint will get a Hardcore mode. This brings more realistic battles with lower health while removing the HUD minimap. This will be played on Shipment, Firing Range, Rust and more.
COD Mobile Season 1 balance changes
Check out the COD: Mobile weapon balance changes for Season One below.
- Man-O-War greatly increased the number of shells.
- GKS greatly increased reload speed.
- ASM10 increases aiming speed. For not equipping the rear grip
- ASM10 increased movement speed. For not equipping the rear grip
- ASM10 reduces the firing range.
- DR-H reduces reload speed
- Annihilator reduces damage against Shield Turret, XS1 Goliath, Stealth Chopper, VTOL and Transform Shield.
Only the DR-H and the Annihilator received some nerfs. The latter (an operator skill) was way too strong against Shields.
COD: Mobile Season 1 Battle Pass Free Tiers
Via the new COD: Mobile Season 1 Battle Pass, players will be able to get their hands on both the new weapons, as well as a new Operator skill.
First up, the FR .556 Assault Rifle will be available for free to those who reach tier 21 of the Battle Pass. Then, there's also the SKS, a semi-automatic Marksman Rifle to unlock via the free tiers. At the time of writing, the exact tier to unlock is unknown.
Players will also be able to unlock the new Operator skill, called Gravity Vortex Gun, which pulls your enemies into a vortex. It only has two shots, so make every shot count.
Lastly, in terms of the free tier highlights, there's the Gas Grenade which continuously releases tear gas. Slows down movement, blurred vision and coughing.
