Latest News

New Poltergeist Class - 23rd May

"The Poltergeist uses subterfuge and surprise to confuse opponents. Whether you need to reposition for an attack or evade an incoming threat, its Active Camo cloaking ability provides near invisibility so that you can move without giving away your position.

And you move faster while cloaked, too. The Poltergeist’s Voidwalker ability increases running and walking speed when Active Camo is up, helping you reach your destination quickly and stealthily. This is invaluable when you need to move in the open where an enemy might otherwise see you.

Taking about a minute to charge up, you’ll be able to use the Poltergeist’s Active Camo ability several times in a match. Keep in mind, though, that firing your weapon at any time immediately deactivates Active Camo, so wait to shoot until you’re ready to commit to the kill."

How to unlock Poltergeist

"Beginning May 21, select the Event tab and then Featured to view the tasks you must complete in order to unlock the new class. Complete the variety of Battle Royale tasks and the Poltergeist is yours."

New and Upcoming Events

Cordite Now Available

"As a part of our ongoing commitment to provide new weapons through engagement opportunities, we have two new options to acquire this new SMG. You can find a common version to acquire through a new set of seasonal challenges releasing today and you can acquire the legendary version through The Void Draw."

The Void Draw

"Through this new lucky draw we have a legendary version called Cordite – Zero G. This slick and futuristic design comes with a reactive camo that changes as you get kills and a death effect that lovingly pulls your enemies into a black hole. Check it out in action:"

1v1 Duel Mode & Saloon

This brand-new mode is available now and is available on both Saloon and Killhouse. The featured map, Saloon, is not exclusive to just 1v1 Duel but will also be found in 2v2 Showdown when that limited time mode is available.

Despite its small size it features a variety of areas to explore and take advantage of, whether it is taking cover or ambushing your opponents on the street or using the Saloon itself to get the jump on an enemy.

According to YouTuber GrowPositive, the first multiplayer map to arrive is Shipment. The map is a classic and has been reimagined into multiple iterations of Call of Duty - it's about time it arrived in COD Mobile.

Unfortunately, COD Zombies was 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 6. The COD Mobile team have stated that the game is not up to their standards and has been removed for the forseeable future.

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).



Why the Outlaw Sniper Rifle will be the best yet, via CODMobile_ES

  • Impeccable design.  
  • Great precision and cadence.  
  • Much greater mobility than other snipers.  
  • Much better recharging time.

The Outlaw will be coming to the Battle Pass soon.

Twitter account CODMobile_ES posted a screenshot from a Reddit user, of a possible new sniper - the NA - 45 and another weapon with 'lightning attack' activated.

Both screenshots can be seen below.

The KRM-262, a pump-action shotgun from Black Ops 3, was found in the game files of COD Mobile with no official release date.

@CODM_Updates 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

The G36 has also been spotted in test servers and has asked for feedback from players.
