COD Mobile Season 5 has begun and was kicked off with an official community update.

With Season 4 coming to an end, the new season is called "Steel Legion".

New skins are being revealed on a daily basis as we round up the latest season and begin a next.

We're going to be getting the Reaper and David Mason character skin and plenty of other goodies.

The latest season has been a mixed bag for content, some nice new addition came in the form of character and weapon skins, although the lack of new maps and the removal of zombies is definitely disappointing.

Here's what we know about Season 5.

According to YouTuber Grow Positive, here's what we can expect:

Maps

With the latest update to COD Mobile, Meltdown has now been added to the game.

There's been limited leaks and rumours about any new maps, it could be that this month's season does not contain one at all.

Zombies

Unfortunately, COD Zombies is being removed in Season 4 (on the 25th March).

Although it's not out of the question for it to make a return at a later date, it's unlikely to resurface in Season 5.

If it does return we can look forward to maps such as Nacht Der Untoten (which has been confirmed to be in development) and Tranzit (which has still yet to release despite footage of it being online).

 

Weapons

A new GKS weapon has arrived, which featured in Black Ops 4. The GKS is a new high-powered SMG that has reliable recoil and stability, but can also hit long-range targets

The HVK was also added in the most recent update.

@CODM_Updates have shared a number of new weapons that they believed should have arrived in Season 4 - it could be these weapons appear in Season 5 at some point.

  • NA-45
  • GPAS-12
  • MP7
  • H28

Scorestreaks

The Shock RC will arrive as a new scorestreak, which detects and disables nearby enemies with an electric shock.

For Season 4, @CODM_murdablast claimed that Lightning Strike would release, but instead, as part of the Credit Store update the MQ-27 DRAGONFIRE was added.

Game Modes

  • Gun Game: Team Fight = Gun Game + TDM, Progress your weapons by earning kills or with two assists. First team to reach 60 points or a knife kill on the last level wins.
  • 2v2 Showdown: Two teams of two go head to head using random weapon loadouts that change every 2 rounds. Be the first to eliminate both enemies, or capture the point in overtime to win the match. First team to reach 6 rounds wins. Single round respawn and health regeneration disabled.

Battle Royale

Although rumours were circulating about a second map in the Battle Royale, which would be smaller and play a lot faster, it has not been mentioned.

Updates were allegedly promised within the current map to keep things fresh, but in Season 4 nothing was specifically mentioned.

Hopefully, Season 5 can address a lot of the issues that plague the Battle Royale mode.

Season 4 Ranked

A new season of ranked has arrived and will run from the 1st April - 1st June.

  • New ranked mode seasonal rewards
  • All new Industrial Revolution themed weapons & equipment coming to Season 4 Ranked Mode, including Epic weapon Man-o-War, and Epic soldier Ruin
  • Ranked Mode Changes

  • Improved score earning rules for MP based on player’s performance
