A new image shared by Call of Duty: Mobile social channels has given fans a new look at the upcoming Zombies mode that will be added to the game in the near future.
Activision has been teasing that the new Zombies mode in Call of Duty: Mobile will be added in the near future. In the latest community update for the game on Reddit, the company noted that it was coming up and that more teasers will be released on socials to hype up the new mode.
The Zombies mode in Call of Duty: Mobile brings in some of the Black Ops Zombies elements into a new horde based mode.
Zombies will be the third mode in the Call of Duty: Mobile experience, which includes MP that features a combination of fan favorite maps and modes and a Battle Royale experience.
Call of Duty: Mobile has seen incredible success for Activision with the game having 148 million downloads in the first month and generated $53 million in revenue.
Activision and the Call of Duty: Mobile team have shared the latest community update for Call of Duty: Mobile on Friday, November 8.
The community update gives fans of the mobile game a look at what to expect and what’s coming to Call of Duty: Mobile.
This weeks community update has teased that news on the Zombies mode for the Mobile game is incoming soon, but a release date for the mode has not been announced. The game so far only features the MP experience and Battle Royale mode.
The update also shares that controller support for Call of Duty: Mobile is coming soon.
Here’s the full community update:
Greetings Call of Duty: Mobile community, over the past month there is one request that we have seen every single day, ‘where is Zombies?’ It will be at your fingertips before you know it.

Call of Duty Endowment
As mentioned in the upcoming news, we are honored for Call of Duty: Mobile to be working with the folks at the Call of Duty Endowment. This non-profit organization is all about helping unemployed veterans in the United Kingdom and United States find high quality careers. They have successfully helped place more than 63,000 veterans in jobs since 2009.
We are thrilled to announce that next week will have brand new items available in COD Mobile that will support this organization. If you want to support them in an additional way, there is a Call of Duty Endowment pack in Modern Warfare.
Stay tuned to our COD Mobile social media channels for more details on all of that, but for now please take a look at the brand-new #HireHonor video for Call of Duty Endowment and Veterans Day: https://youtu.be/TgXjNR8cxgU
The most commonly addressed issues over the last month of Community Updates have been Bots, additional login options, controller support, and new maps. Last week we addressed a few of those topics and many of those are things being currently worked on, like controller support and login options, but we’d just like to say keep sharing that feedback in forms.
While it is fantastic to see so much feedback about those previously discussed topics, we would love to hear more about what you think about new operator skills (like the Sparrow), new BR classes (Airborne), new modes, or in-game events. Our teams are always balancing community feedback against in-game data, so please just let us know what you think about everything related to COD Mobile.
We will continue to enforce on all players who choose to ruin the balance of the game by using cheats, hacks, exploits, or anything else defined in that policy. Please keep reporting players in-game and directly through our community accounts.
Just a reminder, but if you are reporting cheaters to us in the community please provide the following information so that we can quickly investigate:
Usernames and user ID (if available)
Date and time of reported match
We have no intention of banning players automatically just based on a report, but we will appropriately investigate and enforce on any players who are found to be cheating.
Just a quick note, but we are planning to release controller support soon and are just finalizing the specifics of how it will be working in the game, specifically with matchmaking. Keep checking back for more on this as we get closer to release.
There is a lot this week that is “coming soon” and while we hate to just tease details, we hope you’ll share in the anticipation for everything that is coming in November. Until next time!
Sensor Tower, a mobile data analytical firm, has released their latest report looking at the stats of Call of Duty: Mobile, which launched on October 1, 2019.
Sensor Tower has revealed that Call of Duty: Mobile has reached over 148 million downloads across both Apple App Store and Google Play Store in its firth month, making it the most successful mobile title to release recently, beating out the mobile versions of Fortnite and PUBG’s first month numbers.
Call of Duty: Mobile delivered an incredibly strong first month performance, amassing an estimated 148 million downloads, according to Sensor Tower Store Intelligence estimates. This makes the Tencent-developed shooter based on Activision’s blockbuster property the second most successful mobile game launch of all time in terms of first-month downloads, stripping the also recently released Mario Kart Tour of its short-lived time in the No. 2 position.

The United States was again the leader in this metric, with $22.8 million, or 16 percent of the total, spent within the first month; Japan came in second with $7 million, or 4 percent.
Call of Duty: Mobile is free to play on iOS and Android and available worldwide.
The Call of Duty Endowment, Activision Blizzard’s non profit organization that helps veterans find jobs, has announced a new “Hire. Honor.” campaign to celebrate the organization’s 10 year anniversary of helping veterans find jobs.
The Call of Duty Endowment has helped many veterans find jobs over the last 10 years and has found unique ways of allowing the community to help support the charity through in-game content packs in Call of Duty titles.
General James Mattis, Decorated American Veteran and Former United States Secretary of Defense, joins the campaign in a call-to-action Public Service Video which can be viewed at: callofdutyendowment.org/HireHonor. In addition to urging viewers to honor veterans by hiring veterans, General Mattis asserts that the vast majority of veterans who have experienced combat emerge stronger and are even greater assets to our society and the workforce.
The campaign encompasses a variety of programs that support the Endowment, with 100% of Activision proceeds going directly to finding jobs for veterans. The Call of Duty Endowment has funded the placement of more than 63,000 veterans into well-paying, high-quality jobs and expects to place 100,000 veterans in meaningful jobs by 2024.
“It is my great honor to partner with General Mattis and General Jones in honoring our veterans by hiring our veterans,” said Bobby Kotick, CEO of Activision Blizzard and co-founder of the Call of Duty Endowment. “We are committed to finding 100,000 jobs for veterans by 2024.”
For the Hire. Honor. campaign, the Endowment is adding additional ways to support veterans and earn in-game content in both Call of Duty: Mobile and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.
Starting Monday, Nov. 11, Call of Duty®: Mobile will feature an Endowment-themed content pack entitled the Call of Duty Endowment Honor Pack which includes a new skin for in-game items
Players can participate by watching some of their favorite streamers play Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare on Twitch this Veterans Day. Look for streamers with CODE clan tags to see the Call of Duty Endowment streams. Fans who watch for 1 hour will receive 30 minutes of 2XP. Fans who watch for 2 hours will also receive a Call of Duty Endowment Calling Card.
The company also announced a donation partnership with Klay Thompson and Dr. Disrespect.
Gaming superstar Dr Disrespect and basketball legend Klay Thompson are teaming up with Omaze to raise funds for the Call of Duty Endowment. To bring attention to this important cause, they are offering the chance for one lucky fan to play Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare with Dr Disrespect and Klay Thompson, which will be livestreamed on Twitch. The lucky winner will play alongside one of gaming’s most dynamic personalities and one of the greatest three-point shooters in basketball, while supporting the work and mission of the Call of Duty Endowment. Visit Omaze.com/COD for details.
The organization partnered with General Jim Mattis for this campaign and released a new video discussing the campaign.
It’s now been one month since the launch of Call of Duty: Mobile, which reached 100 million users in its first week.
The team at Activision and TIMI Studios have continued to update the game since launch, including the new Halloween event, which will be ending soon.
On a Reddit on Nov 1, Activision provided an update on the state of the Mobile game and a look at new playlists coming to it soon.
Check out the full details from Activision:
We wanted to respond to your requests for clarification about this themed event, including more details of how it works and the probabilities of getting those unique items. We have made many changes over the last week to address that.
An in-game article linked to the event that shows more detailed probabilities for obtaining each Lucky Draw item.
Summaries of the event breakdown in that linked article.
We aim to have these events feel fair and as clear as possible. With Lucky Draw and other events there are always considerations to make them more clear or balanced based on your feedback, so please do keep letting us know how you feel, positive or negative.
We are always listening and receptive. For now, we are committed to making these changes to show you exactly how an event works and how rare each item might be.
News & Updates
The Halloween event continues this week with plenty of that content carrying into November, but coming up we also have new challenges, limited time modes, and a brand-new way to play Battle Royale. Take to the skies with the Airborne Chip and find vertically dynamic ways to drop in on unsuspecting opponents!
We have no plans to slow down and here is just a glimpse of the offerings this week:
· 11/1 ~ Halloween Event continues…
· 11/2 – 11/3 ~ 2X Player XP Weekend
· 11/1 – 11/7 ~ Rockets Only Mode and Challenge
· 11/4 – 11/10 ~ Weekly Battle Royale Challenge
· 11/4 – 11/11 ~ Airborne Class Event
\All Dates UTC*
Nestled in between all those events are login events and Personal Milestones, some of which offer access to weapons (like the MSMC Abnormality), cosmetics, or other items. They are new ways to challenge yourself, complete objectives, and grab more tantalizing gear.
Lastly, if you haven’t been keeping up, take a look at our Activision Blog that is regularly updated for all things COD Mobile, whether it is map walkthroughs, strategies for BR or MP, event info, or more.
Over the last two community updates we’ve addressed several pieces of feedback that the community had been inquiring about and there are still a few continuously coming up: controller support and login options.
We’d just like to reiterate that both are still being worked on. We hear you and we also care a great deal about both topics, which is why we are taking the time to make sure they are both fully fleshed out, balanced, and ready to go before announcing anything.
Bots in COD Mobile
Since release we have seen many different inquiries of all types about Bots in Multiplayer and Battle Royale. We know you all have a great many questions about this, so let’s talk about Bots. We added bots into Call of Duty: Mobile to provide a way for new players to grow, learn, and thrive without the constant threat of a full team of higher level & more experienced players continually dominating them.
They still provide a challenge while allowing you to learn the ins & outs of levels, test out new builds or weapons, and gradually increase your skill. Bots are not present in Ranked matches and in other modes as you grow in skill, you’ll see fewer and fewer bots present. We appreciate all of feedback surrounding this and we will be looking to improve those systems throughout the lifespan of the game.
This has been a frequently discussed topic this week with many players pinging us about it and we publicly have shown that we are continuously investigating & enforcing on those who wish to upset the balance of the game by using cheats or exploits.
This will continue to evolve alongside the game as people try to find new ways to break the system and as our teams work to make anti-cheat as strong as possible. All that we ask for now is report report report! Please continue to report players in-game, but also feel free to tag us or PM us on Reddit or any social media channel. Just make sure to provide the following info:
Usernames and user ID (if available)
Date and time of reported match
We have no intention of banning players automatically just based on a report, but we will appropriately investigate and enforce on any players who are found to be cheating.
Credit Store Refresh
Since our last update the community has been asking about refreshing the items in-game credits store and how often that will happen. Well, hopefully by the time you are reading this update you’ve noticed that the store has just updated! We intend to refresh that frequently in order to always provide options to purchase a variety of different weapons or items with in-game currency.
Just a reminder, while we are always looking for feedback in community spaces, you can also report that in-game (hint – look under the ? icon next to the messages icon).
For any issue please reach out to Activision Support through the in-game options, but if you are unable to reach out in-game then there is always an online option available through social media or through Contact Us.
We have seen some reports of a potential issue with continuously receiving temporary bans and that is being investigated. Please note that it may be due to the device having conflicting software that is preventing COD Mobile from updating your player data. If you are encountering that issue, please try uninstalling anything that may potentially be interacting with the app.
This has come up each week so far with and originally it was all about issues linking your Facebook. For that try please try clearing your cache and you can find a step by step breakdown of how to clear your cache on Activision Support’s COD Mobile FAQ. However, the more recent contacts are about moving data. Please note that you are currently unable to move your stats/data from one account to another.
If you are still encountering any issues purchasing anything from the in-game store, whether it is COD Points or a specific item, please make sure the transaction was successful, wait a few hours & restart the game in case there is a delay, and if you still don’t see the purchase then please contact Player Support.
Call of Duty: Mobile is an addictive multiplayer game that even the most casual mobile player can enjoy, but also one that even hardcore console players like myself might find to be surprisingly compelling.
Developed by Tencent’s TiMi Studios, Call of Duty: Mobile launched worldwide on October 1 as a free-to-play game for Android and iOS devices. Personally, I was skeptical of the replay value. How much would I really play a mobile Call of Duty when I already spend so much time on the console versions?
I admit I’ve never really had much interest in mobile gaming. Most of my attempts at gaming on the go have ended after only a few matches. I’ve downloaded and uninstalled the mobile version of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds twice after only a match or two. Friends recommend mobile games to me, and I almost never make it through the tutorials. None of the games were bad, I just never really cared to play anything on my phone.
However, I’m a sucker for good fanservice, and I found myself enjoying the first few matches of Call of Duty: Mobile. The game contains a mashup of fan-favorite maps, modes, and characters from the older Dutys. There are classic maps like “Crash” and “Killhouse” from Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare and “Nuketown” from the Black Ops series. There’s even a battle royale mode to compete with PUBGMobile. It’s completely different from Black Ops 4’s Blackout map, but also boasts a mix of new and classic Call of Duty locations.
The iconic maps also look great on mobile. I played on my Samsung Galaxy S9, and it definitely beats the graphics of PUBG Mobile, but I expected Call of Duty to take that win. Sorry, PUBG.
In addition to the warm and fuzzy feelings of nostalgia, the controls are surprisingly good for a mobile experience. I expected to be really clumsy-thumbsy with my movement, but there’s a decent tutorial and several options to tweak your controls. Of course, you can be fancier than me and play Call of Duty: Mobile on a PC with the help of an emulator. A keyboard and mouse will probably make your experience even better than mine.
Mobile Call of Duty feels pretty padded with bots in the early levels, making this an easy game to pick up for really casual players or mobile noobs like myself. Once I gained more confidence aiming with the touchscreen, I moved from standard multiplayer to a ranked playlist, which seems to pair me up with more human players than bots.
Call of Duty is known for being an arcade-style shooter that is easier to pick up and play than most others in the genre, so it seems smart that the mobile version also caters to a wide range of skills. Call of Duty: Mobile even gives you the option to play solely against bots, and since you can select the “simple” hip-firing aim, even your cool, non-gaming grandma might be able to reach some major killstreaks.
Unsurprisingly, Call of Duty: Mobile is an absolute grind, a free-to-play game packed full of seriously outlandish microtransactions. There are several camos just for grenades, and I’m not totally sure why anyone would want camos for grenades or tactical equipment. You only see the equipment in your hand for a mere second or two before you throw it. Thankfully, you don’t need to pay anything to enjoy the game. You can just dodge all the offers to buy additional cosmetics or level progression with COD Points, Call of Duty’s digital currency.
Slow progression might make the battle royale fanatics antsy, as you have to reach level 7 before unlocking that mode. It also takes forever to just to reach level 33 and unlock a third weapon loadout for multiplayer. Call of Duty: Mobile wants you to become impatient, open your wallet, and speed things up by buying COD Points in bulk just to progress faster.
The weapon variants in Call of Duty: Mobile are mostly just pretty cosmetics. I do have some that offer a perk for slightly faster sprint or reload times, but I haven’t witnessed any guns with unreal stats like unlimited range or a huge fire rate increase. Stat-based weapon variants of that caliber would make the playing field extremely unbalanced, and would kill my desire to play this game.
For me, it seems to be nostalgia paired with the slow and steady grind that keeps me playing. I complete challenges and level up the same way I’ve enjoyed the progression in Black Ops 4, without spending anything extra to level up. It’s been a full week since launch, and I’m still playing the multiplayer and battle royale modes on a daily basis. This is the longest I’ve ever stuck with a mobile game.
I’m definitely not the only one jumping on the mobile hype. Reuters has already reported that the mobile version of Call of Duty has pulled in 100 million downloads in just the first week. This early success greatly overshadows the numbers of the competition, as the mobile version of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds brought in just over 26 million in week one, and Fortnite only earned 22.5 million downloads in its first week on mobile.
Call of Duty: Mobile is a battery-draining juggernaut that is making a splash in the world of mobile shooters, especially in the battle royale realm. The game is definitely worth the download, especially for fans feeling the burnout from a year of Black Ops 4. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare releases on October 25, at which time my focus will likely shift back to console multiplayer, but I think it’ll still offer a good fix for my battle royale cravings.
After being in rigorous beta testing across multiple countries since July, Activision and Tencent’s Call of Duty: Mobile is go for iOS and Android devices everywhere but mainland China, Vietnam, and Belgium. Battle across recognizable maps, fight as iconic heroes like Ghost and Soap, and participate in a battle royale the likes of which you’ve probably seen before.
It’s free to play; it’s mobile; it’s what a console Call of Duty might look like if people weren’t so down on microtransactions and loot boxes. They really should have subtitled it “Mobile Warfare.” Beneath the icon in the iTunes search results it says “Visceral Multiplayer!” which sounds like a thing Call of Duty players are keen on.
The game runs in landscape mode instead of portrait (wide instead of tall), which was a great decision, Mario Kart Tour. The gameplay isn’t too shabby. It looks nice on my iPhone XR. It’s all aiming and auto-firing, but it works well on a small touchscreen
The focus is on progression, with new gear unlocked as players climb the ranks and access new loadout slots. Weapons have experience levels as well, with better mods and attachments unlocked at higher levels. There’s a store filled with cosmetic stuff to purchase and play with, daily login bonuses, special events—basically plenty of things to clutter up its nice-looking home screen.
Players can purchase in-game currency with real cash to help them make their soldier and weapons look all pretty. There’s a “Cash Back” event going on right now that involves getting bonuses for purchasing currency and makes me feel like I am trying to finance a car every time I load up the game. This is Activision and Tencent, so expect plenty of ridiculous things to buy and ways to buy them.
As for the Battle Royale, it supports up to 100 players, pulls together map locations from across many different Call of Duty games, and isn’t unlocked until level 7, which might take me a while. You’ll probably get there first. Let me know how it is.
Call of Duty: Mobile has arrived. Download Call of Duty: Mobile now on iOS and Android worldwide and experience Call of Duty on the go with this new experience.
Call of Duty: Mobile is Activision’s first large free to play venture in the mobile market, as the mobile gaming industry continues to expand at an incredible pace in my markets worldwide.
