Call of Duty Mobile Season 4 has been unveiled by Activision as Wild West-themed, meaning there’s going to be a lot of rootin’ tootin’ cowboy shootin’ over the next few weeks.
Officially named Spurned & Burned, the new season of Call of Duty: Mobile is launching later this week as part of a big COD Mobile update.
According to Activision, Season 4 introduces an updated Multiplayer map, new featured game modes, new weapons and Blueprints, the iconic Heartbeat Sensor, the Hawk X3 Scorestreak, Gunsmith 2.0, Clan Wars, new events and challenges, and 50 tiers of new earnable rewards in the Season 4 Battle Pass.
And the good news is that gamers won’t be waiting long for this new content to drop in-game.
Activision has confirmed that the Call of Duty Mobile Season 4 release date has been set for Wednesday, May 26, 2021.
Technically, some gamers will start playing on May 27, as the official COD Mobile update time has been set for 5pm PDT on May 26, which is 1am BST on May 27 in the UK.
As with all new season launches, there will be a new Battle Pass to unlock, which will be available with both free and premium tiers.
The Free Tiers will include the new Hawk X3 Scorestreak, which will make it possible to ping your enemies and rain down fire from above as the pilot.
The new Scorestreak will unlock at Tier 14, while at Tier 21, players will gain access to the lever-action MK2 Marksman Rifle, which Activision describes as “the perfect weapon for the sharpshooting cowboys out there.
“Other free tier items include the Saddled Charm, the Cyborg Showdown Calling Card, the Wagon Wheel camo series, and more.”
The Premium Tiers will offer new cosmetic content to unlock, including Alex—Bounty Hunter at Tier 1, along with the Razorback—Stirrup and the Standoff at Dusk Calling Card.
More information regarding the other new content going live this week can be found listed below as part of the early COD Mobile update notes:
Updated Map and Modes: Dome, Capture the Gold, 1v1 Duel
The iconic Dome multiplayer map from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is coming to Mobile. Fight through this military radar station set in the middle of the desert, where you’ll encounter danger at every turn, whether you’re passing through the central containers, the radar tower, or the abandoned offices.
In Capture the Gold, snatch the enemy’s gold and take it back to your base before they get yours. In this variant of Capture the Flag, players eliminated by a gold carrier will drop power-ups that can be used to get the advantage over the enemy.
Make it personal in 1v1 Duel, coming later in the season. The first to reach seven kills wins the round; win three rounds and the match is yours. We’re optimizing some Prop Hunt features, too, in addition to adding the maps Coastal and Tunisia.
Weapon Balancing and Gunsmith 2.0
Season 4 includes a full weapon balance pass, with changes across all weapon categories to better ensure that each weapon type fulfills its unique role. That means strengthening SMGs in close quarters, improving assault rifles in the midrange, balancing the accuracy and damage efficiency of LMGs, optimizing attachments and other features across sniper and marksman rifles, and more. See our community post for more details, under the section “Upcoming Weapon Balance Update.”
Alongside the weapon balance pass, we’re implementing a large-scale upgrade to Gunsmith weapon assets with the introduction of Gunsmith 2.0. We’ll continue to inform you of weapon assets in future updates, so that you can take pride in all your Gunsmith creations.
Battle Royale Vehicle Optimization
Season 4 also includes balance optimizations for vehicles in Battle Royale, including improved durability for motorcycles and for off-road, all-terrain, and assault vehicles. Fly off the beaten path with improved acceleration on off-road vehicles. Also choose new tank operations, selectable under vehicle settings.
