Call of Duty: Mobile (formerly known as Call of Duty: Legends of War, and Elite Squad in its pre-alpha phase) is a free-to-play mobile first-person shooter that was released first in Alpha on December 15th, 2018 for Android systems only in Australia.[2]

On March 18th, 2019, Activision officially announced the game, now called Call of Duty: Mobile.[3] [4] On September 18th, 2019, a release was announced and the game was released worldwide on October 1st, 2019.[5] At launch, the game was not available in Belgium, mainland China, and Vietnam. On April 20, 2020, the game was released in Vietnam. On December 25, 2020, the game was released in China.[6]

The game surpassed 35 million downloads on the Apple Store and Google Play on its first three days worldwide[7] and reached 100 million downloads during its first week[8]. By the end of 2019, Call of Duty: Mobile reached 180 million downloads worldwide[9]. By June 2020, the game has over 250 million downloads and generated nearly $327 million[10]. As of May 2021, the game surpassed 500 million downloads[11] and generated over $1 billion[12]. By early 2022, the game surpassed 650 million downloads and generated over $1 billion during 2021 alone.[13]


Similarly to Call of Duty: Online, Call of Duty: Mobile is intended to be a collection of nearly every element of Call of Duty, including characters, weapons, and maps from Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, Call of Duty: World at War, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Call of Duty: Black Ops, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, Call of Duty: Black Ops II, Call of Duty: Ghosts, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, Call of Duty: Black Ops III, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, Call of Duty: WWII, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, Call of Duty: Vanguard and a Battle Royale mode similar to the Blackout mode from Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 and Call of Duty: Warzone.

Elite Squad[]

In October 2018, a trailer of a game called "Elite Squad" was leaked. While there are is no official information about this version, looking at available files shows that at this point TiMi Studios were not sure whether they would get the rights to Call of Duty or not. Because of this the game was developed in 2 versions. Some of the assets for the Elite Squad version where called "UNCOD". A lot of the Elite Squad assets still remain in the current files. These include, but are not limited to: weapon UI icons, weapon stat files, loading screens and text files.

Beta Phases[]

On May 16th, 2019, The Closed Beta was introduced to the Android platform. India was the first country to gain access to the beta, being able to test multiplayer initially. [14] On May 19th, 2019, Battle Royale mode was added. [15] The Closed beta in India ended on June 6th, 2019. [16] On June 10th, 2019, the Closed Beta started exclusively in Australia. [17] On June 14th, the IOS beta was released. The Closed beta in Australia ended in July 3th, 2019. [18] On September 16th, 2019, the Closed Beta started exclusively in Southeast Asia countries and Taiwan [19] The Closed Beta in Southeast Asia countries and Taiwan ended on September 26th, 2019. [20] On September 25th, 2019, the Closed Beta started exclusively in Korea. The Closed Beta in Korea ended in September 27th, 2019. [21]

Soft Launch[]

On July 18th, 2019, a soft launch began and the first countries that had access were Canada and Australia. [22] On August 15th, 2019, Peru was the new country added in the soft launch.

Post-Launch Betas[]

After the game's full global launch, beta tests were occasionally launched after to test out upcoming content. This could include new weapons, equipment, Operator Skills, balance adjustments, and modes. Most tests usually covered up to two seasons ahead of the current season.


Call of Duty: Mobile's multiplayer features classic, "boots on the ground" gameplay that fans have come to love, and also features various fan-favorite weapons across almost every Call of Duty title. The game includes a slowly increasing amount of maps: Hijacked, Nuketown, Crash, Takeoff, Crossfire, Summit, Standoff, Raid, Killhouse and Firing Range. More maps are added as new updates are released.

There are ranked and non-ranked options. The Ranked playlist only contains 5 modes: Frontline, Team Deathmatch, Domination, Hardpoint, Search and Destroy, though there has been limited additions to the playlist (mainly Kill Confirmed and Payout Search and Destroy). Non-ranked can be played in any available modes and any available maps.

Similar to Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare and Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, the multiplayer features health-bars on top of each player's character, as well as red lights on the shoulders.

Killstreaks are replaced by scorestreaks, which are achieved by reaching a certain score. All players can also equip three scorestreaks at any given time but will change once the players equips the Persistence perk in which the scorestreaks will not reset after death. It has been reworked to give a systematic ranking for each scorestreak based on its usefulness and its power as most players complained about its disadvantage when encountering Persistence users. The rework was done in Season 5: Tropical Vision of 2022.

The game also features Operator Skills which are similar to Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, Call of Duty: Black Ops III and Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. These Operator Skills are activated after a certain period of time and can be used to deal massive damage against enemies in order to gain an upper hand. Each Operator Skill has a unique function for operating.

The medals awarded in multiplayer are based on the medals from Call of Duty: Black Ops II.

A nuke that kills every player in the enemy team is also achievable with 20 weapon kills without dying. Scorestreak kills, like VTOLs, Stealth Choppers, and Sentry Guns do not count towards this total.

As of the Gunsmith Update introduced in Season 9 Conquest, the game now features weapon customization similar to that of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. Players can now choose from a variety of attachments ranging from different barrel attachments to even different ammunition attachments and perks as attachments. Players can see how each attachment affects their weapon statistics and the overall performance in terms of percentage. As of 2024, advanced stats have been added in the form of a "Weapon Comparison System" which allows players to view specific stats such as fire-rate, recoil patterns, damage ranges, and more.


Game Modes[]

Perks and Scorestreaks[]






Zombies Classic[]

"Brave Shi No Numa aka the Swamp of Death as you and your squad attempt to survive the rounds, facing an onslaught of the undead throughout. Get your Perks and hit up that Mystery Box; you’ll need all the help you can get."
— Call of Duty Blog. [23]

The Zombies mode for Mobile was officially launched on November 23rd, 2019.

The mode featured the map Shi No Numa available in three different modes: a round-based Survival mode and a Raid mode with two difficulties; Normal Raid and Hardcore Raid. Several Perk-a-Colas were also available Juggernog, Speed Cola, Double Tap Root Beer, Quick Revive, Deadshot Daiquiri, and Electric Cherry.

A new system called Coins was also featured, functioning similarly to the GobbleGums from Call of Duty: Black Ops III. The mode also featured "Buffs", cheaper non-Perk slot bonuses that grant the player abilities such as increased weapon damage, increased health, etc.

On February 29th, 2020, TiMi Studios announced the Zombies mode would be removed from the game on March 25th, 2020. [24] The mode returned on October 13th, 2022 with Season 9: Zombies Are Back. [25]

With the reintegration of Zombies, the Raid modes returned along with a traditional round-based mode called "Endless." However, "Buffs" were removed, but the Coins remained.

Easter Eggs[]

There were several Easter Eggs available within Zombies Classic:

  • While playing in Hardcore Raid, several repair parts would spawn in the central building allowing the players to repair the Elevator. Activating the Elevator would transport the players to an underground lab. Two additional Perk machines can be found within the lab as well as several blue plants with the ability to sprout large tendrils. Destroying all the plants rewarded the players with codes to be entered on a computer terminal in an adjacent room. After entering the codes, the players would be teleported to a boss area featuring "Jubokko". If the easter egg is performed in Normal Raid, the plants will spawn multiple Max Ammo power ups instead.
  • A blue crystal could be found in the Northwestern section of the map which would spawn blue skulls upon shooting it. Destroying all the skulls rewarded the players with a Power-Up.
  • Within the building in the Southeastern section of the map, several pans can be found hanging on a wall. Shooting them all would spawn four blue plants around the map. Destroying all the plants would reward the players with a Max Ammo Power-Up.
  • There are several teddy bears that can be found around the map, usually within sight lines of windows in the buildings in other areas. The teddy bears use the same death effect as the plants, exploding in a cloud of green smoke.

Undead Siege[]

Main article: Undead Siege

On August 1st, 2021, the game was updated with the new Undead Siege mode, which varied drastically from the original round-based gamemode, and is a PvE mode, where a squad of four players defend a teleportation base from zombies. It shares mechanics with both the Battle Royale mode and traditional Zombies. It features two modes, Casual and Hard, with Hard providing much more rewards and XP in general, but requiring more strategy and coordination to win. A special reward track is provided, and players can complete various challenges to earn XP for said track. An event known as Aether Hunt has challenges relating to the mode and ties slightly to the plot of the actual game mode.

Early Version[]

In an early pre-alpha version of the mode available in Australia in December 2018, while the game was still called as Call of Duty: Legends of War, rather than being a round-based survival experience the Zombies mode featured various linear missions each taking place on a section of the map Green Run. The mode could be played with 4 players online and featured several classic enemies such as Brutus, the Avogadro, as well as the Napalm Zombie, dubbed "Infernos".

Battle Royale[]

The Battle Royale mode makes a return in Call of Duty: Mobile. The mode features 3 game modes, 1-player, 2-players, and 4-players modes. One map is available at launch, called Isolated, which features several locations from the Black Ops and Modern Warfare series. A 20 versus 20 mode (known as "Warfare") was also temporarily added to Battle Royale.

Players can also choose between two camera types, a third-person camera called TPP Shot Mode or a first-person camera called FPP Shot Mode. When the player first begins Battle Royale, they are presented with a quick overview displaying important game details, designed to get them into the action as quickly as possible, but with an overall understanding of the actions to undertake and the threats to face.

There is fall damage, but it can be easily avoided as the player automatically opens wingsuits when jumping off a high height. However, medium heights can still be dangerous. There are also ziplines for fast and easy travel.

Within Battle Royale, there are twenty-five classes that the player can choose between at the start of the game that each has unique attributes, including equipment and a perk that are only available for that class.

The classes are the following:

Disrupt category (Passive: After activating skill, movement speed is increased.)

Stealth category (Passive: Reduces movement noises.)

Support category (Passive: Reduces recovery time.)

Defense category (Passive: Reduces explosive damage and the impact of negative statuses.)

Tracker category (Passive: Enemy footsteps can be heard from a distance.)

Only one player per squad or duo can select a class, forcing each person to select a different one.

As of Season 9 Conquest, weapons and attachments have been changed from something similar to the traditional PUBG style to a rarity system similar to Warzone. From Season 10 The Hunt, scopes are not pre-equipped and can be picked up or swapped. However, scopes cannot be swapped from Airdrop Arsenal Loadouts.

In Season 11 Anniversary, a new Battle Royale map was introduced called Alcatraz, initially as a season-exclusive and from Season 12 and onward, became a permanent map together with Isolated. However, in 2021 Season 2 Day of Reckoning, Alcatraz was then removed from the 24/7 playlist, as the development team did not want to keep supporting the game mode in a permanent state. However, Alcatraz is occasionally rotated in each season, but as of current, is available every weekend as a limited time mode.

In Season 8 2021, BR received a revamp, this time changing out the original health and vest system for an armor plate system similar to Call of Duty: Warzone. All players can have a maximum of 250 health (300 if they obtain a Supercharger), and receive no damage reduction when using said armor. Blackout was added as a 24/7 map, along with Isolated. The original rarity system of Warzone was replaced by no-attachment weapons that can be equipped with unique mods similar to the previous system. Airdrops have also been split into two variants, the default airdrop (where one can find Superchargers or powerful weapons such as Operator Skills), and Arsenal Drops, which are now how players get their customized weapons. Backpacks are also modified, as they can now be found in Levels. The maximum bag size is now 8, compared to the original 10 slots with a large backpack.


Because the game is free to play, it has multiple in-app purchases. These are all the things players can purchase:

  • Draws/Crates
  • Weapon camouflages/blueprints
  • Operators/Operator variants
  • Grenade camouflages (lethal and non-lethal)
  • Battle Royale camouflages (classes, vehicles, wing suits, and parachutes)
  • Player avatars and avatar frames
  • Weapon XP cards/Player Rename card.

All skins come in 6 levels of Rarity: Common (grey), Uncommon (green), Rare (blue), Epic (purple), Legendary (orange), and Mythic (red). Common denotes base weapons and items.

As of the newer updates, the game now has a Battle Pass model similar to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare where players can play in order to level up. Inactive Battle Passes shall have only a few tiers free for players while active Battle Passes have all content available to those who purchased. At the cost of additional COD Points, players can buy the Battle Pass bundle which lets them buy the Battle Pass and skip a few tiers ahead.

With a recent patch, a Battle Pass Vault was added, which allows player to purchase past Battle Passes. However, unlike the current pass, they will not refund any COD Points spent, and their rewards are unlocked via Vault Coins, earned through the current Battle Pass.

Weapon Rarities[]

Before Season 9 Conquest, camos that were Rare or above would have perks attached to them. These perks would vary, and higher rarities would provide better perks than a lower rarity.

However, after Season 9: Conquest, when Gunsmith was introduced, Uncommon and Rare weapons became camo options, providing no strategic advantage. However, Epic and Legendary camos turned to weapon blueprints, which each had their own unique attachment set. Epic rarity would come with four attachments, while Legendary weapons came fully equipped. Legendary weapons would also have unique kill animations. Usually Legendary Weapons are available in draws, whilst Epic weapons are available in draws, crates, Battle Passes, and events.

A new rarity was introduced in Season 11 Anniversary, called Mythic. The Mythic rarity uses a unique leveling system with unique Mythic cards which can be bought in a draw separate to the main weapon draw. Leveling up the Mythic level of a blueprint will unlock extra customization options, such as skins for sets of attachment. The player can choose to use the default appearance of an attachment, or use the modified version. The differences are purely cosmetic, and have subjective value in terms of gameplay.

Legendary skins were introduced in Season 12: Going Dark. Legendary skins feature unique features compared to lower rarities, such as a unique kill counter (usually in the form of an augmented reality watch), custom scorestreaks, unique traits in Battle Royale (such as a specially colored loot box from dead enemies along with a unique pose when preparing to drop into the map.)

Mythic skins were introduced in a later patch, adding onto the various features of the Legendary Skins, including additional emotes, exclusive Operator Skill/BR Class skins, and further customization than other operators.

Seasons and Themes[]

Call of Duty: Mobile releases monthly-based seasons with varying themes and introduction of new characters, new weapons, new Operator Skills, new Scorestreaks, new Perks and new game modes. Starting the third season’s launch, the game developers named each season and battle pass to represent the current theme. Since season 6, comics were provided alongside the battle pass, with the story focusing about the theme of the season and picking up where it left off in the new season.
