2. Overkill perk was available in the test servers but it was never released
A perk named overkill was almost set to come to the game. The specialty of this perk was, it would allow the player to use a primary weapon in their secondary weapon slot, instead of a pistol or melee weapon.
Later, game developers realized that if they add this perk, it would break the game by giving players an extra advantage. Hence, they postponed the process and the overkill perk never came to Call of Duty Mobile.
3. The Teddy bears spread across the map has a deep secret behind them
Apart from the Sanitarium location in COD Mobile, where there are lots of teddy bears spread, the whole Isolated map has many brown teddy bears lying around. In Sanitarium, bursting certain numbers of teddy bears will open a secret room in Sanitarium. But apart from the gaming missions that it brings, there is a deep secret behind why are these teddy bears present in the game.
According to some theories, one of the developers had a daughter, but unfortunately, she left the world at a very young age. Teddy bears were one of her favorite toys of her. So, in order to pay tribute to her, the developers added teddy bears across the map, especially in the sanitarium.

8. No horizontal recoil option was present for weapon during early seasons
After the initial release, there was no horizontal recoil present in any of the guns that we see now in the game. There was a little vertical recoil and that’s it.
