CoD Mobile Adds Gunsmith And A Fan-Favorite Map This Week
It's a big week for Call of Duty: Mobile, with Gunsmith and the Shipment 1944 map coming to the game.
While Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and the battle royale game Warzone are getting a lot of attention these days--a new patch is out now for those games--Activision continues to update and support Call of Duty: Mobile, too. That includes both a new map and the long-awaited Gunsmith.
A new blog post from Activision outlines what's new in CoD: Mobile this week, and fans are getting some good stuff. Starting off, the popular Gunsmith feature from the console/PC Call of Duty games is now in the mobile edition. In Gunsmith, players can customize their weapons with up to nine gameplay attachments and four cosmetic attachments. In total, there are more than 50 attachments available in Gunsmith, including 20 reticles. There are 60 weapon levels to move through, so the introduction of Gunsmith should provide yet another reason for CoD: Mobile players to keep grinding.
In addition to Gunsmith, CoD: Mobile introduces a new map this week, and it's called Shipment 1944. The map was originally introduced to Call of Duty in 2007's Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, where it was known as Shipment. It's a close-quarters map that requires players to check their corners constantly. You can see an overview of the map in the video above.
As for Modern Warfare and Warzone, they are getting new modes and playlists this week, along with new store bundles. You can check out GameSpot's rundown to find out what's new.
All of this is happening as Activision is gearing up to announce this year's new Call of Duty game, which is rumored to be Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. Recent teasers have suggested that Activision may have something more to share about the new game this Friday, August 14. However, the official reveal of the new game is expected to come later.
