Activision recently released more details concerning the Battle Royale mode of Call of Duty: Mobile! Let’s jump right into it!
This article quotes the official source. We invite you to see the complete list of details, that can be found here!
- Up to 100 total rivals on a large-scale, sprawling Battle Royale map
- Single, Two-person, or Four-person playlists are currently being playtested
- Choose from one of six initial classes, each with their own ability and skill
- The mode features similar rules to Call of Duty: Black Ops 4’s Blackout map; drop in from above, find weapons and gear, survive on the ground, and eliminate all to win!
- Reviving teammates introduces a dog tag retrieval, with successfully-healed friends dropping in from a cargo plane once they are healed
- The game can be played in either a third or first-person perspective, which you decide on before the match begins
- The massive map features a wide variety of new territory to explore, as well over a dozen settings from previous Call of Duty titles, including Call of Duty® 4: Modern Warfare, Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare 2, Call of Duty®: Black Ops, and Call of Duty®: Black Ops II.
Well, this is promising of a complete and enjoyable experience, particularly on mobile, for fans of Battle Royale games and of the CoD franchise!
Looking at the screenshot below, it appears to be really simple and intuitive too!
Here are the six initial classes the game offers:
- Defender: With the ability to place a deformable Transform Shield, this class also is Reinforced, raising resistance to all damage except bullets.
- Mechanic: Able to call an EMP Drone to create electromagnetic interference on hostile forces, this class also features the Engineer ability, granting augmented sight to vehicles, hostile traps, and other equipment.
- Scout: Utilizing the Sensor Dart that can view hostile positions in the immediate area of the radar map, this class also benefits from the Tracker ability; allowing you to see fresh footprints of hostiles.
- Clown: A master of distraction and friend of the undead, this class has a Toy Bomb to detonate, summoning zombies that only attack hostiles near to them; due in part to the Clown having the Anti-Zombie ability, which reduces the zombies’ aggression distance.
- Medic: This class can place a Medical Station that continuously heals the Medic and associated allies in the immediate vicinity. In addition, the Master Healer ability allows a Medic to heal more quickly and reduces the time it takes to revive teammates.
- Ninja: Lastly, this clandestine class has a Grapple Gun that fires a hook, allowing you to propel yourself up and onto target buildings or across the landscape at speed. Movement is quiet too, due to this class having the Dead Silence ability.
Each player will be able to find the class that best suits him/her!
Vehicles and Maps
Players will be able to use four different vehicles in-game: ATV, SUV, Light Helicopter and Tactical Raft. Each vehicle has room for a different number of player (2 for the ATV, 4 for the SUV, 3 for the helicopter), offering different possibilities but also different weaknesses! This will spice up the battles.
Even if the entire map has not been revealed, here are some locations that you can explore:
- Countdown: The hangars and missile silos; elements from the map that appeared in Call of Duty® 4: Modern Warfare
- Crash: The war-torn settlement with a downed helicopter in the middle, from Call of Duty® 4: Modern Warfare
- Diner: The infamous eatery from Call of Duty: Black Ops II
- Estate: The hilltop house and grounds, inspired by the map in from Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare 2
- Farm: The foreboding rural nightmare from Zombies Survival mode, from Call of Duty: Black Ops II
- Firing Range: The military practice facility, versions of which were seen throughout the from Call of Duty®: Black Ops franchise
- Killhouse: The small, symmetrical warehouse of mayhem from Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare
- Launch: The cosmodrome and launch pad from Call of Duty®: Black Ops
- Overgrown: A large, rural farm and fields from Call of Duty 4®: Modern Warfare
- Nuketown: The iconic suburbs with a subterranean secret, as seen in all the Call of Duty®: Black Ops releases
- Pipeline: The grimy and overgrown railyard from Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare
- Seaside: The coastal multiplayer map originally from Call of Duty 4: Black Ops 4
- Shipment: The crammed cargo docks from Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare
- Standoff: The border town map from Call of Duty®: Black Ops II
This is a piece of good news that we will be able to explore in those locations, as they are the DNA of the recent CoD entries. We hope that all of this will be well-mixed into the global map.
