Greetings Call of Duty: Mobile Community! We have a short update this week due to a little holiday arriving in the United States called Thanksgiving, but there is still plenty releasing throughout this next week that is worth highlighting, discussing, and sharing. First off, we have Attack of the Night, then Hackney Yard 24/7 (day and night versions of the map), and the long-awaited Small Arms Seasonal Challenge with the new .50s GS secondary weapon.
Like we mentioned, it is Thanksgiving this week and for many outside of the United States all that means is sales sales sales! Black Friday
and Cyber Monday
are coming, and we have a variety of releases coming out throughout the next week; there are bundles, crates, a new lucky draw with one free draw for all players
, and some general store offers that present a variety of different ways to snag new gear. https://preview.redd.it/kv1wlyi60h161.jpg?width=1920&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=8b40d6d5aa8bf473837f438ca2e992206e6ddd69
For these Black Friday releases you can find most of them through either the Crate, Bundles, or Credit Store sections of the store. We aren’t going to highlight the specifics of any of those today except for the entirely unique Dark Side Draw. Instead, let’s jump in and discuss some new events, modes, challenges, and more dropping this week! https://preview.redd.it/1fry55r90h161.png?width=800&format=png&auto=webp&s=74c7429c3eb6a659ae74e3f26afcaceeb788e9bc

*All Dates UTC
This week may seem light, but it has some big events and modes dropping into the mix. We’ll highlight those all below, but as per usual make sure to jump in and catch any limited time modes or events before they leave the playing field. First off, let’s discuss the most popular event of the week. Knights Divided
The hottest question of the week has been a seemingly simple one, Red or Blue? Lines have been drawn, memes have descended on the community, and sides have been picked in the battle for domination and of course the most important thing of all: new gear 😉. https://reddit.com/link/k145ov/video/s9n4pn1j0h161/player
While many players have already participated and fought for their side day after day, there are still plenty of opportunities to jump into this event. For anyone who missed it in-game or the basics:
- Every 24 hours a new territory will be surface, with only 1 territory open at a time
- Each territory will have a task associated with it. Take on the task to earn points for your faction
- The faction with the most points when a territory closes will claim that territory
- Each player and faction will receive various rewards through leaderboards, milestones, and of course through which-ever faction wins it all
You’ll have your own personal milestone to push through, which can grab you new version of the Razorback or Elite PMC operator (both themed to your faction). Each daily task can challenge you in different ways and push you into the fierce competition that is Knights Divided!
To step a bit out of the norm, we’d like to highlight some of the amazing memes that have come from this event. First off, we absolutely love all of it and we cannot thank you enough for adopting to this event, and for celebrating it through the greatest art of all – memes!
Check out a few of our favorite ones from this past week: 1. From acu/cokecainola
2. From u/ace_tsunami
3. From u/IoriTheGamer
We’ve seen many other references through Twitter, Discord, YouTube, and elsewhere. We love seeing you all laugh, fake argue, and joke about these and we’ll be enjoying them all in our own way alongside you. Best of luck to both teams! Legendary Operator – Dark Nikto
Call of Duty: Mobile has been out in the world for over a year and it is rare occasion where we get the honor to say something is happening for the very first time (well outside of new modes and maps each season), but with this Dark Side Draw
and in particular Dark Nikto there are a lot of unique aspects to highlight. First, get a glimpse of this first-ever legendary operator in action! First Legendary Operator - Dark Nikto
You may have already noticed many of the unique aspects of Dark Nikto, like an in-game kill counter (seen on his wrist). The Dark Side Draw itself offers many unique items, like the Legendary .50s GS – Calamity seen in the video, the Epic sniper rifle XPR 50 – Dark Tech, Karambit – Dark Tech, and much more. However, once you acquire the brooding and menacing Dark Nitko you’ll also get access to several unique customization options. https://preview.redd.it/bpvefo7t0h161.png?width=1919&format=png&auto=webp&s=364a98d2ac0b6fcdb04ec07663c0005309e6ea94
Like that lovingly crafted and themed image shows, Dark Nikto comes with a unique parachute animation, a kill tracker, a UAV camo, an alternate lobby background, and a red & black loot box (the kind you drop on death in Battle Royale). These are all “first-ever” customization options and they are tied specifically to Dark Nikto.
Lastly, don’t forget that all players get one free draw
for the Dark Side Draw. Check it all out in-game now for more information or head on over to our Dark Side Draw Blog
the highlights all of this as well! Hackney Yard Returns
This week we have the return of Hackney Yard! It has only been gone for a short while since the original Going Dark TDM playlist, but now it is back and with both the day & night versions across a wide variety of modes. For anyone who hasn’t tried the map yet get a glimpse of it in action. Hackney Yard Spotlight
While you are fighting your way across this brand-new Season 12 map, while not always grab some new items? Hack The Yard
is a new event launching with this playlist! Through this one you snag the Type 25 – Dark Light alongside a few other rewards just for playing on this map. Find both the playlist and event live now in-game. Seasonal Challenges
We have one more Seasonal challenge launching today and it brings an opportunity to grab the long-awaited small but powerful .50 GS pistol. This secondary weapon brings the pain (high damage per shot) but with a relatively slow fire rate. Make your shots count and you can do some serious damage with this brand-new weapon. https://preview.redd.it/lb4woov51h161.png?width=1530&format=png&auto=webp&s=93fe5ad690d4c825bfbb13c49bb6176db28036e6 Attack of the Night
Another event coming soon on top of everything else highlighted today is a brand-new version of Attack of the Undead!
Get ready to drop into the dead of night while trying to survive against your former teammates now turned undead beasts. Attack of the Undead - Night
Just like Hackney Yard 24/7, this new mode will have a featured event tied to in order to provide you with some extra ways to grab more items and gear! You’ll be able to grab the MSMC – Alarm and a few other rewards just by playing matches in this Attack of the Night playlist and doing what you would normally do in any match (get kills, use melee weapons, survive, and use night vision).
You’ll be able to find that all under the Undertakers Storm: Night
event. This new mode is launching in a few days on November 27th
(UTC). Be sure to check it out while it is live for a limited time.
Throughout November we’ve been trying to kick it up a notch in relation to calling out bugs here, even if they are just under investigation and we have no clear solution or fix in place yet. However, we hope these continued efforts show that we are continuously working on a variety of issues and by no means are interested in not investigating and fixing any bug. Here are a few we’ve seen brought up recently. Mythic Cards
We are investigating some scattered reports about Mythic Cards disappearing. If you’ve run into any issues with this, please reach out so we can collect your information, investigate, and check to see if there is a real underlying issue. We’ll provide an update on this one at a later time. Tempest Not Hitting Multiple Targets
We’ve received reports of the Operator Skill - Tempest not performing its usual chain effect, with the electricity branching to multiple targets as long as they are grouped up. This one is currently under investigation with no clear fix in place, but we’ll reach back out to those who have reported it if we need any additional information. For now, we’ll just say thank you for reporting this and doing so with patience, good will, and clear evidence. Mythic Fennec Effects Disappearing
We’ve found an issue with the Fennec - Ascended losing its unique visual effects after performing certain actions during a match. We have a fix for this one already and will be deploying it an upcoming update, most likely the next major one coming in December. Custom Reticles Not Changing in Default Scopes
As the name of this one aptly suggests, we’ve seen some reports of custom reticles (the kind you unlock) not being applied specifically on default scopes. This is a simple one, but just requires a bit of testing and experimenting with. However, like the others we’ll reach back to some of the original reporters in case additional information is required. Missing HVK-30 Tin Stitched (Reddit only)
Several seasons ago we had an event (Season 9 precisely) where some rewards were not distributed correctly. We queried to see which players should have received them, sent out replacement items for what they should have won, and did this multiple times to make sure we took care of everyone. However, over the last month we’ve been getting many responses from players saying they reached out to our support teams and never got a resolution on this.
Our community team has been trying to provide support here when possible, but the moment it becomes more than a handful of people it is something that should be handled by our much larger support teams. However, clearly there seems to be issues there. We’ll drop a thread below, if you are missing this item or the associated tank camo please respond with the information requested there.
Thank you for the patience on this, for continuing to bring this up and report it, and apologies for anyone who has been experiencing difficulties with getting assistance. Support Options
While it may be a holiday in the United States, that doesn’t mean our support teams are gone. If you need help you should be able to get it, so please reach out to any of the following channels for assistance and if you run into issues doing so please reach out to our community team. Final Notes
We skipped feedback this week, but we’ve gone over a lot in the last couple of weeks of community updates alongside a variety of other common bug reports and inquiries, like Desync, lag, performance, overheating, and other reported issues or topics. This week, we’ll end this update by saying it is almost teaser time for Season 13!
Tune in this weekend to get the first glimpse at something new coming then and potentially at the overall theme of that next season. You know us, we love to tease and we’ll have plenty rolling out over the next couple of weeks and all the way up until the release. Keep an eye out for all of that! https://preview.redd.it/18uscidt1h161.jpg?width=3029&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=43ab9fc6501affc573b2e3d7da23b6781e05f884
Enjoy this new batch of offerings for Season 12: Going Dark launching today, stay safe out there, and for anyone else in North America, Happy Thanksgiving! Be kind to each other and see everyone next week.
