Public Test Server was released ahead of season 13 update and we were able to have a sneak peak into what to expect in season 13 and possibly season 14.
COD Mobile Season 13 Release Date

Brand New Weapons
Call of Duty Mobile teased two new weapons for season 13. A brand new assault riffle named Peacekeeper MK2 and a SMG named QXR. One weapon will be available in season 13 battle pass (most likely Peacekeeper MK2) and other will arrive later in an event.
Full Reload Animation
From season 13, weapon will feature a new full reload animation. Animation type depends on each weapon. This animation occurs when you emptied the magazine of the weapon. Half emptied magazine reloads wont have this new animation. Also once you attached the new magazine, you can start shooting right away without waiting for full animation to be over.
Attachment stats in numbers
Stat changes of each attachment will be shown in numbers (percentage) for a better understanding.
Weapon upgrade level selection
Now you can select the number of levels to upgrade a weapon with weapon XP cards. Previously players had to upgrade level by level.
One major complaint about gunsmith was the effect some weapon attachments had on the weapon camo or blueprint. Now players are given the option to retain the original design even with different attachments.
Diamond camo is finally here. In test server, players need to obtain 120 10 kill streak unlock diamond camo. We might have to wait till the final update to find out whether a player need to unlock Damascus camo to grind Diamond camo.
