(Pocket-lint) - Call of Duty Mobile has started to tease its next update, sharing a couple of juicy details about what to expect when Call of Duty Season 2 lands.
You'll recall that the numbering of seasons was reset, with Season 1, New Order, rather than having Season 14. That means the next season for 2021 will be Season 2.
Here's everything you need to know about the next Season for Call of Duty Mobile.
When will CoD Mobile Season 2 start?
The next season of Call of Duty Mobile is expected to start on 11 March.
We'll expect an update to the game slightly before this, with the current Season 1 Battle Pass expiring on 10 March.
What updates will be coming in CoD Mobile Season 2?
The official teases have started for the next season of Call of Duty Mobile, revealing some juicy details of what to expect. We'll continue to update as and when new details are released or rumoured.
It looks like the AS VAL will be added to the game. The AS VAL is a Russian rifle with an integrated supressor, designed for stealth but with big stopping power. It was first introduced in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.
On top of the AS VAL, Season 2 is also going to introduce another marksman rifle - the SP-R 208, previously seen in Warzone. This is a popular weapson, because of the power and reload speed, while the bolt action is faster than most other bolt action rifles in the game. It should prove a popular choice for maps like Crossfire.
We've also seen confirmation that a new map will be added - Shoot House. Again, this is a Modern Warfare map, designed for MP gaming. It's a kill house, so designed for faster action.
Previously it had been confirmed by the developers that the classic Nuketown map would be returning to the game. Through the winter months Nuketown Russia has replaced the normal Nuketown map - although there's no confirmation as to when this switch will take place.
It also looks like there's going to be changes to Shipment. Thanks to a teaser image, we can see some changes, including Rothwynn, TAAC and Cromwell Continental names. None of these appear in the Shipment 1944 map we've had in CoDM so far - but they do all feature in the Modern Warfare version of Shipment, so we suspect the maps will switch for Season 2.
