Activision has released more information on Call of Duty: Mobile as the game approaches its regional beta test phase. The free-to-play mobile game will bring together all your Call of Duty favorites, from characters to maps to competitive game modes and signature weapons, the mobile game will have nearly everything you'd put on your mobile COD wishlist.
Call of Duty: Mobile will allow you to customize your loadout with a preferred Primary and Secondary weapon. Both weapons will have separate spots for Optics and three Attachments so you can augment them as you so desire as well.
You can also customize your loadout with skins, grenade choice (explosive or tactical), a devastating weapon skill, and up to three perks. The weapon skills work similarly to the Specialist Weapons from Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 and are available after a timer countdown. Current skills for Call of Duty: Mobile include the Purifier (flamethrower), War Machine (grenade launcher), Death Machine (minigun), Transform Shield (deformable shield), Sparrow (bow), and Tempest (electrical bolt rifle).
Players will get access to five different Loadout slots which can be custom named, so if you like to vary your playstyle up a bit, you can still get the most out of the Loadout customization system.
As for returning characters, the following familiar faces from the Call of Duty universe will be making an appearance in the mobile title:
- Alex Mason, the CIA operative, special agent, and Marine Force Recon Captain (retired), from the Call of Duty®: Black Ops franchise.
- David "Section" Mason, son of Alex Mason, SEAL Team member and J-SOC Commander from Call of Duty®: Black Ops II.

- Domination: Capture and hold the designated positions to gain points.
Returning maps include several iconic locales from the Modern Warfare and Black Ops franchises:
- Crossfire: "Small desert town. Intense interior fighting and strong firefights." Bring your sniper rifle in this compact street fight; the Call of Duty® 4: Modern Warfare map is revisited, with cramped and confined structures (where shotguns are a good choice) are flanked by two taller buildings at each end of this Z-shaped thoroughfare.
- Standoff: "Border town between China and Kyrgyzstan. Classic engagements and desintations to fight over."Also known to Black Ops III fans as Outlaw, this map which originally debuted in Black Ops II offers a variety of tight hiding spots, upper structures that favor the long-range weapon wrangler, and a main compound with a walled perimeter to infiltrate in a variety of gameplay styles.
- Crash: "Downed Sea Knight in a desert town. Fantastic team games." A classic Call of Duty® 4: Modern Warfare map, this well-loved map features blind corners, a crashed chopper, rusty barrels, narrow streets overlooked by shelled-out buildings as well as rooftop sniping positions. Expect quick and deadly action during Multiplayer matches here.
- Killhouse: "Speedball style warehouse interior. Great for small teams." If you're wanting an almost symmetrical map with a central lookout tower, and have a penchant for rapid takedowns where shotguns can take precedence, practice on Call of Duty® 4: Modern Warfare's Killhouse. This warehouse offers multiple wooden and concrete hiding spots, and almost constant action.
- Firing Range: "Military practice facility. Hectic Domination games." Journey to Cuba in this reworking of an original Black Ops map, seen most recently in Black Ops 4. Corrugated and wooden sheds, long, ruined structures, a muddy courtyard and rusting equipment, abandoned in the hot sun, make this a classic and chaotic map.
