Season 7 Test Server 2nd Update
Crates and Bundles
A whole new set of bundles and crates were leaked by the dataminers. But it looks like the activision doesnt want us yet to know which skin is coming with the each crate or bundle. May be they have still not decided which skin is going to be added on the each crate.
The following video includes the all upcoming Call of Duty Mobile Season 7 emotes. One of the important emote is the Zombified emote along with the bus driver T.E.D.D. emote. Is it a teaser or a clue for the upcoming zombie mode? Will we be able to see zombies on the season 7?
Animated Calling Cards
The new sources claim that COD Mobile is going to add the animated calling cards in season 7 as well.
Newest version of the season 7 (Ranked season 5) test server was released today (27th May), and players were given the opportunity to play on new maps, play brand new game modes, use brand new weapons and many more. So, here are these new contents.
Ranked Season 5 Leaks
Even though the upcoming season is referred to as season 7, the rank season would be season 5. We found out the following rank rewards in the test server.
Multiplayer Pro 3 Reward: HBRa3 – Skulls & Blood
Battle Royale Master 2 Reward: Battery – Skulls & Blood
New Multiplayer Map – Highrise
Highrise was available to download in the previous version of the test server but players were not given the opportunity to play on it. This map seems to be one of the biggest of all maps and we hope it will be available for ranked multiplayer matches.
New Multiplayer Featured Game Mode – Juggernaut
Juggernaut game mode is played with 6 players. There are 2 kinds of players who are humans and juggernaut (XS-1 Goliath). At the start of the match one player will turn as juggernaut (XS-1 Goliath) and the other 5 players (humans) have to destroy him without giving away many kills. The human player who destroys the goliath will be the next juggernaut. This will go on until a player gets 30 kills or 10 minutes (duration of the match). And at the end, players will be ranked from 1 to 6 according to the number of kills they got both as a human and juggernaut.
There are armament chests around the map. Both humans and juggernaut can open these chests. Humans can obtain operator skills such as sparrow, death machine and war machine and the juggernaut can obtain perks such as health recovery points, increased speed, increased damage from them. These chests will refresh from time to time.
New Training Mode
A new practice mode is expected to release in season 7. Here players can practice their aiming by shooting at still and moving targets in this mode. You can use any type of gun to practice in this mode.
Brand New Weapon – MP5
Data miners leaked a brand-new weapon in previous test server. In this version players are given the opportunity to test this gun. It’s a SMG and in the test server it is coded as QQ9. Data miners have further revealed this gun with various skins.
Brand New Weapon – Chopper
Chopper is a light machine gun (LMG) featured on Call of Duty: Ghosts. In that game it was named as Chain SAW and the gun was a hip fire only weapon. But we expect it to have both hip fire and ADS features in Call of Duty Mobile version. Following basic version and the legendary skin was leaked from game files.
Season 7 Theme & Battle Pass
There were many rumours about the season 7 theme to be chemical warfare. Even Activision themselves confirmed this in community updates. Thanks to data miners we were given the opportunity to have an early glimpse of season 7 battle pass and theme.
Multiplayer Matches Filter
In this update, players are given the opportunity to filter game modes that they want to play. Once you switched on this feature you can choose your preferred game modes and ignore others.
Battle Royale Map Name Changes
An extension to current “Isolated” map was added in previous test server. However, in this test server names of those new areas are changed as follows.
- Shipyard – Harbor
- Hospital – Sanitarium
- Wetland – Frigid Wetland
- Border Village – Heat
Battle Royale Class Change – Smoke Bomber
This brand-new BR class was released in previous version. In this version visualization of the enemies and teammates in the smoke has been changed.
Battle Royale Tanks Update
The battle tanks were added in the previous test server. However, in the updated version you can spot tank air drops and enemy tanks on the mini map. Also, the match announcer (Captain) will let you know once these tanks are delivered (Voice).
Hence the tanks which are owned by enemies will be shown in red on the map.
Calling Cards Updated
In this version the calling cards are also updated. New calling cards include the Call of Duty Mobile logo as well. Following calling cards are expected to available for free.
Season 7 Comic Story
Just like in season 6, upcoming season 7 has a comic story in the battle pass. This story features various character skins, guns and other contents that are scheduled for season 7. Following is a video of this comic story,
Season 7 Test Server 1st Update
Season 7 (Ranked season 5) Theme
Most of us wondered what’s going to be the theme of the upcoming season. We got a little idea once the character skins were leaked that it’s going to be a chemical warfare kind of theme. In May 22nd community update, Activation almost confirmed that the season is going to be Chemical/Bio Hazard and military-themed. And they also confirmed that the cost of the battle pass is going to be the same as before.
Brand New Weapon
A brand-new submachine gun (SMG) was found on game data files. This gun is none other than MP5. MP5 was first featured on Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. This gun is going to be either grindable or free battle pass reward.
Shock RC Nerf
We found a change in shock RC scorestreak. It is available to activate at 350 points in the current season. However, in season 7 you need 450 points to activate it.
Secret Bunker in Battle Royale
There is a secret bunker in Black Market area of the new Battle Royale map. You can’t access this bunker currently even in the test server. However, several players found a glitch and were able to have a look in this bunker. Here are some images of this bunker.
Easter Egg in Battle Royale
There is also a new Easter Egg in Battle Royale. When you go inside the Hospital, (new location on the BR map) you can have attachments and other valuable loots by shooting 8 teddy bears.
Show Vest Feature in Battle Royale
Many players complain that they can’t see their skins properly in Battle Royale when you wear a vest. Call of Duty Mobile has given a solution to this. Now you can enable and disable the “Show Vest” feature from settings. Once you have disabled it, you can see your skin and enemy skins without the vest. But yet the enemies will see your skin along with the vest. Each player sees themselves and enemies according to their own vest hide/visible settings.
New Gulag Map
The Call of Duty Mobile Season 7 includes the Gulag Showers map which was featured on Call of Duty: MW and Warzone. It is a very small map designed for 1vs1 and 2vs2 face to face quick gun battles.
Today (May 20th) Call of Duty Mobile released the season 7 test server for the Garena version. We were able to have a firsthand experience on what sort of features about to come in the brand new battle pass and ranked season.
Brand New Main Lobby
Currently, we don’t have a clear idea about the theme of the upcoming season. But by looking at the main lobby it gives us battlefield or post-war kind of vibes. Hence Activision mentioned in one of their Reddit replies, that they are going to give a military theme for the upcoming season 7.
New Multiplayer Maps
In the download section, we found out 3 brand new Multiplayer maps. They are Tunisia, Gulag and Highrise. Unfortunately, these maps are not playable as of now.
Highrise was first featured on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. The map is a construction site with two skyscrapers on either side of the map. We are excited to see what sort of changes will come with the mobile version.
Tunisia was available in the beta version way back in June 2019. However, the map was never released even until the end of the 6th season. Can we expect it in season 7?
Here is game-play on Tunisia map,
Gulag was featured on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. This map was also a part of Call of Duty: Warzone. We can expect it to be available for 2vs2 or 1vs1 modes in Call of Duty Mobile.
Cluster strike will be the new scorestreak for multiplayer game modes. This was first teased on the “Void Lucky Draw” video. Cluster strikes can be activated with 950 points.
New Operator Skill
New operator skill is named Takeo’s Katana. It’s a sword which you can kill enemies with a single swing. Your character will perform various manures like barrel rolls while carrying this sword.
We found 3 brand new perks in multiplayer mode. One from each green, red, and blue perks.
This new green perk allows you to regenerate health from gun, melee, combat axe kills and capturing and holding objectives.
This red perk allows you to carry two primary weapons. However, you cannot equip two of the same weapons.
The blue perk allows you to carry extra lethal equipment when spawning. It also delays the health regeneration of enemies from explosive damages.
Multiplayer Cinematic Entrance
Season 7 will have a cool cinematic entrance in multiplayer game modes. This will feature an ariel view of the map before starting the game.
Now you can have calling cards in Call of Duty Mobile. You can select these cards from just like the way you change your avatar and avatar frame. These calling cards will be displayed in your profile and post-match lobbies in both Multiplayer and Battle Royale modes.
New Battle Royale Lobby
Season 7 features a stunning new Battle Royale lobby. Background image features an amazing portrait of “Black Market” which is a new location on the map.
Battle Royale Map Changes
Extensions to the current BR map was teased several times during the season 6. These changes will arrive with the season 7 update. Larger battleground, vending machines, randomized high tier loot zones are some of the main changes.
The extension to the current map will have new locations named, Downtown, Black Market, Shipyard, Hospital, Wetland, Ski Town, and Border village. Here are some of the snapshots of these places.
New BR Weapons
DLQ 33 and Man-O-War will be available for Battle Royale in season 7. These 2 weapons were also available in season 6 test server. But they were never released. Hopefully they will be available in upcoming season.
New Battle Royale Class
Smoke Bomber will be the brand-new class in season 7. This is a cluster smoke grenade which generates a large smoke screen once activated. Enemies will be highlighted in red and teammates in blue once you use this class. So, you can confuse and kill enemies easily by using this class.
Tempest Weapon in Battle Royale
Tempest will be available in Battle Royale in season 7. You can get this from airdrops just like the Annihilator pistol.
Tactical Flashlight in Battle Royale
Tactical Flashlight is the latest legendary attachment you can use in Battle Royale. It can be equipped instead of a Laser Sight or a Quick Draw. Tactical Flashlight blinds the enemy for about 2 seconds when aimed at. But the attachment has a huge cooling down time. Once ready to use, it will indicate as an icon on top of your gun button on the screen. You can find this attachment in some air drops.
New Zombie Boss in Battle Royale
Cerberus dog will no longer be the zombie boss in season 7. Once you go the zombie boss location at farm, “The Butcher” will appear instead of the dog.
New Battle Royale Tanks
Perhaps the most exciting new addition to Battle Royale is the battle tank. This tank will be available from an air drop in the latter stage of the game. Tank is equipped with 2 powerful guns and you can use it to drive around the map as well.
Gas Barrels in Battle Royale
We will have gas barrels in some locations. Once you shoot these barrels, they will release gas (Nova gas) which will cause damage to you and nearby enemies.
Other Changes and Featured in Battle Royale
We found following minor changes in Battle Royale as well.
Vests will look different from previous seasons.
Direction of the nearby enemies who are using weapons will be indicated on top of your screen with a red circle.
Zone will look different to the previous seasons. The zone is much darker blue in season 7.
Battle Pass Changes
Battle pass tiers will be displayed differently in season 7. Upto season 6 the battle pass tier rewards were shown in a table. Since the season 7 they will be shown on a thread.
New Collection Event
Season 7 will also feature a collection and exchange event just like past seasons. You can collect these items (bullets) by playing and getting kills in both Multiplayer and Battle Royale modes. Unfortunately, there is not a single clue about this event as of now.
New Multiplayer Game Mode – Attack of the Undead
This brand-new game mode is similar to the infected mode which was available in past Call of Duty titles. There are two groups of players, undead and survivor. The game will start with 10 survivors. After a 10 second count, a random player will get infected and turn into an undead. He has to kill other survivors and turn them undead. And undead players must kill the survivors and turn them before the time runs out. All 10 players will most likely turn into undead players so one with the most kills will be the MVP of the match.
- Survivors can use guns to kill undead players
- The first person to get infected can use the gun to kill first survivor. After that he and other undead players can only use melee weapons
- Survivors will turn undead when get killed but undead players respawn again as undead players once get killed
- If survivors managed to survive the given time period, they will win the match
- 30 seconds will be added to the clock for every kill by undead players
- Survivors will have defender shield as an operator skill
- Undead players have a perk that makes them run faster
