See it in action below.

New Refitter Battle Royale Class - November 9th 2020

A brand-new Class for Battle Royale has been revealed.

Known as Refitter, this class gves you the ability to resupply armour and gives you access to a perk that slowly repairs and increases the durability of armour too!

Check it out in more detail below.

Night Mode Confirmed - November 9th 2020

After leaks uncovered that Night Mode was arriving as part of Season 12, it has been confirmed.

Check out a sneak peek below!

Release Date

The end of Season 11 takes place on November 13th, suggesting that the start of the new season will begin soon after.

It is likely that Season 12 will begin on November 12th, just 24 hours after the end of the previous season and 24 hours before the hotly anticipated release of Black Ops Cold War!

Maps

As always, the start of a brand-new season of content often sees the introduction of some new maps for COD Mobile.

Season 12 is no different. Notorious leaker @CODM_Updates has uncovered that there will be a total of three new maps coming as part of Season 12.

Hackney Yard COD Mobile Season 12

Hackney Yard is coming to COD Mobile!

Crash from Call of Duty 4, Hackney Yard from the 2019 reboot of Modern Warfare and Summit from the original Black Ops game are set to be added into the game.

The leaker also revealed that there will be night-time iterations of all three maps, suggesting that Season 12 could well be “going dark”.

Battle Pass

The start of a new season means a brand-new Battle Pass to unlock a variety of rewards.

There will be new Epic characters, weapons, charms and more.

We'll also be getting Velikan 'Megalith', Urban Tracker 'By Night', Captain Price 'Dead of Night' and Ghost 'Jawbone'.

Zombies

COD Mobile Zombies was removed from the game all the way back in Season 4.

Since then, there have been several leaks and rumours suggesting that the popular mode will be making a return to the game but nothing has materialised.

Will Zombies return to COD Mobile to coincide with the release of Black Ops Cold War? We will have to wait and see…

Weapons

Players are still waiting to use the 48-Dredge LMG which has been in the game files since Season 4.

It looks like players will have to wait a little longer to get their hands on the weapon after Activision revealed that the LMG will not be arriving in Season 12.

COD Mobile Season 12 Weapons

What weapons are being added for Season 12?!

Perks

In a recent video, an eagle-eyed viewer spotted a player using two primary weapons, seemingly suggesting that the Overkill perk will be arriving to COD Mobile in the not too distant future.

Although the screenshot certainly looks convincing, Activision has stated that it isn’t comfortable with the overall weapon balance in the game, meaning the likelihood of Overkill making it into Season 12 is slim.
