The Battle Royale mode will feature a brand-new cybercity in the future inspired by the GHOST IN THE SHELL: SAC 2045 Netflix series. Only the cyber-themed neon lights lighting the high-rise structures provide illumination in the eternal darkness that envelopes New Vision City. The collaboration brings other immersive features, too. 

New Revive Mechanic: Instead of retrieving dog tags to revive your fallen teammates, you must now collect their ghosts. Found at the spot where they were eliminated, these ghosts allow you to begin the reprinting process, bringing them back into the game.

PVE Enemies: New AI robots and mechanical dogs have infiltrated Isolated, challenging players to PVE combat. Defeat these enemies to collect their parts, which can be exchanged for a Cyberware enhancement at the Redeem Facility.

Cyberware Enhancements: Operators can install one of four enhancements during a Battle Royale match. The Cyberbrain Drone allows you to connect to external terminals to control a microdrone that’s useful for scanning and hacking hostile targets; the Ocular System exposes nearby enemies and displays their stats; Cyberbody Limbs grants improved physical power and a transformed right arm for an aerial melee attack, and the Neuro Systems optimizes your precision and targeting abilities.

New features in COD Mobile Season 7 2022

Feature Introduction

  • When the Mythic weapon reaches the highest level, the Mythic weapon share feature will be unlocked for players to share max-level Mythic weapons with their teammates.

Mythic Weapon Projection Features

  • Players may share the projection at the beginning of each round.
  • Mythic weapon projections will directly replace your teammate’s current primary weapon and can be dropped up to three times.
  • When the Mythic weapon projection is dropped in any form, the appearance will disappear and only the basic weapon shape and attachments will be retained.
  • Mythic weapon projection supports multiple MP modes. Mythic Share-related features can be turned on/off in settings.

In Battle Royale, a new weapon comparison system is now available, displaying more comprehensive and accurate information to help players select their own loadout. Vehicles in the Ground War now support camo equipment. The vehicle camo update in BR loadout will also sync with Ground War.

Store and UI updates in COD Mobile Season 7 2022

The GHOST IN THE SHELL: SAC_2045 collaboration begins when Season 7: New Vision City launches in Call of Duty Mobile at 5 PM PT on August 3rd, 2022.

COD Mobile Season 7 2022: Improvements and Optimizations

Multiplayer and Battle Royale

  • Jackal: Jackal will no longer refresh while the airport is outside of the safe zone.
  • CBR4 Nerfed: CBR4 is an SMG equipped with strong penetrating 5.7mm bullets. We initially hoped that CBR4 could exert a stronger dominance in the middle and close-range combat where it can assist players to deal with enemies behind cover with ease. However, this weapon turned out to be well-rounded in all kinds of situations with its high damage and damage multiplier, high penetration, and excellent mobility and stability. Devs have reserved their penetration and stability and adjusted the damage multiplier and ADS accuracy. This will require players to have higher aiming ability. Its sprint-to-fire is also adjusted to the average level of SMG.
    • ADS Bullet Spread: Increased
    • Damage Multiplier: Adjusted
    • Sprint-to-Fire Delay: Increased
    • Light Stock: Sprint-to-Fire Delay Buff: Reduced
  • MAC-10: This is an SMG with a high rate of fire and superior mobility. Even with the previous nerf, MAC-10 still remains dominant in close-range combat. Corner combats or combats in narrow alleys were exceptionally difficult situations for opponents to handle. As devs do not wish to adjust the mobility of this gun, this adjustment will only involve its shooting range and get-hit flinch. We hope with the following changes, players will think twice while selecting this gun in some scenarios and they also need to control the engagement distance more accurately.
    • Shooting Range: Reduced
    • Get-Hit Flinch: Increased
  • PP19 Bizon is the most controllable SMG once loved by players. However, PP19 Bizon has lost its shooting range and mag capacity advantages in comparison to other weapon updates. Devs have slightly increased its shooting range and reduced its get-hit flinch, hoping to enhance its effectiveness at medium combat range.
    • Shooting Range: Increased
    • Get-Hit Flinch: Reduced
  • PPSh-41 Buffed: Although the recoil of PPSh-41 was adjusted before, its horizontal recoil is still on the heavy side, making it hard to compete against the mainstream SMGs. Therefore, we have increased its damage-on-hit to make up for its heavier horizontal recoil.
    • Damage Multiplier: Increased
  • QQ9 Buffed: QQ9 used to be absolutely dominant at medium and close combat range. However, in the current version, the theoretical TTK at close range is only 10ms lower in comparison to the mainstream SMG. Therefore, we have increased its damage when hitting an opponent, as well as the probability of four shots to kill at medium and close range.
    • Damage Multiplier: Increased
  • AK117 Buffed: Devs have optimized its reload animation and slightly reduced its reload and empty reload time.
    • Tactical Reload Speed: Increased
    • Empty Reload Speed: Increased
  • DR-H Buffed:
    • Shooting Range: Increased
  • Man-O-War Buffed 🔼: The Man-O-War is a heavy weapon that should theoretically gain an advantage at medium and long range, however, its current stability was not compatible with its heaviness.
    • Recoil: Reduced
    • ADS Bullet Spread: Reduced
    • Get-Hit Flinch: Reduced
  • ASM10 Buffed: ASM10 is not a high fault-tolerance weapon. Its heavy recoil and firing animation interfere with the aiming, making it a difficult weapon for players to control. It is time to adjust these downsides.
    • Recoil: Reduced
    • Influence of ADS bullet spread on the firing animation: Reduced
  • KN-44 Buffed: KN-44 was supposed to be a weapon with a high gameplay potential, however, it is limited by its current damage multiplier. Its horizontal recoil is also difficult to control, which limits its stability and overall strength.
    • Horizontal Recoil: Reduced
    • Damage Multiplier: Increased
  • S36 Buffed: As a light machine gun, the ammo capacity of the S36 is too small and its horizontal recoil makes it difficult to control. We hope it can return to the battleground after the following adjustments.
    • Horizontal Recoil: Significantly Reduced
    • Basic Mag Capacity: Increased
  • UL736 Buffed: UL736 was benched for a relatively long time due to its unstable recoil limiting its strength. It’s time to change this situation.
    • Damage Multiplier: Increased
    • Horizontal Recoil: Greatly Reduced
  • HVK-30 Buffed: HVK-30 is not performing well in the current meta. We hope that, without any attachments, its performance can be improved up to an acceptable standard, and the strength of its large gauge ammo’s high damage at close range can be exerted.
    • Damage Multiplier: Adjusted
    • Range: Adjusted
    • Large Gauge Ammo Mag
    • Damage Multiplier: Adjusted
    • Damage: Adjusted
    • Fire Rate: Slightly reduced
  • FR .556 Buffed: FR .556 has been benched for too long, it’s time to bring this classic assault rifle back to the battleground!
    • Damage: Increased
    • Damage Multiplier: Increased
  • M4 Buffed: As a novice assault rifle, M4 has excellent mobility and stability. However, it has not had the spotlight for a long time due to its conservative TTK adjustments in the past. It is time to bring it back to the battleground!
    • Damage: Increased
    • Range: Increased

Multiplayer only

Scorestreaks Adjustment

  • UAV
    • Cruising Time: Reduced
  • Perk Adjustment
    • Hardline Nerfed: The bonus points gained by the Hardline perk will no longer increase the charging speed of the Operator Skill.
    • Dead Silence Nerfed: The sound spread distance while sprinting after being equipped with the Dead Silence perk: Slightly Increased

Battle Royale only

Passive Class Skills Adjustments

In previous versions, each class skill has a different passive skill, but these passive skills vary in terms of strength. For example, the passive skill of the Ninja class can reduce the footstep sound, which can provide great assistance to players in combat. The passive skill of the Hacker class, on the other hand, is only helpful when going against other Hacker classes.

Many players choose the Ninja class more to reduce the footstep sound, while others choose the Medic class just to reduce the time required for healing. All these options limit the diversity of classes to some extent. In order to provide a more diverse experience and choice, we are introducing a new system – the Profession System.

Class Profession

Devs have retained the passive skill of each class, and all classes will also share their profession-featured passive skill. These adjustments can help the passive skills be more compatible with the active skills.

  • Disruptor: After activating the skill, movement speed is increased for a period of time.
    • Include: Trickster, Trap Master, Smoke Bomber, Rewind, and Hacker.
  • Assassin: Reduces movement noises.
    • Include: Ninja, Poltergeist, and Pumped.
  • Rebound: Reduces time required for healing and bringing back knocked down teammates.
    • Include: Medic and Refitter.
  • Fortress: Reduces explosive damage and the duration of negative effects.
    • Include: Defender, Desperado, and Spotter.
  • Observer: Enemy footsteps can be heard from a distance.
    • Include: Scout, Clown, Mechanic, and Airborne.

Unless stated otherwise, the passive skills above are all additional effects that do not affect the original passive skills.

  • Ninja Class: As Ninja class is no longer exclusive to powerful passive skills, we have enhanced its mobility as compensation.
    • Charge Number of Times: Increased
  • Trickster: The trickster class no longer provides support for players to hear footsteps from a greater distance. Instead, it will provide a movement speed buff after activating the skill.
  • Airborne: The Airborne class is a beneficiary in this revision for it gained an additional passive skill. However, its long charge time makes it incompatible with the current fast pace of combat. Therefore, we have reduced its charging time.
    • Charging Time: Reduced
  • Poltergeist: In this revision, the Poltergeist class no longer gives a movement speed buff after activating the skill. Instead, it will have a powerful ability to reduce the sound of footsteps. We think this passive skill is more suitable for the position.
  • Trap Master: In this revision, the original passive is replaced with the movement speed buffs after activating the skill. As compensation, the original passive skill – speed buff charges – are converted into a base value increase instead.
    • Charging Time: Reduced
  • Smoke Bomber: In this revision, Smoke Bomber will no longer receive a movement speed buff after taking damage. It will receive the movement speed buff after activating the skill instead.
  • Refitter: In this revision, the Refitter class is a beneficiary as it gains an additional passive skill. Currently, the damage reduction of the Refitter requires multiple releases to stack up to its maximum effect, making it difficult to keep up with the current pace of combat. We have increased the number of charging times to create more flexibility.
    • Number of Charging Times: Increased
  • Spotter: In this revision, we have replaced the original passive with a reduction in explosive damage and duration of negative effects. Devs hope that the new passive can help the Spotter class combo up with its own active skill.
  • Rewind: In this revision, we removed its original passive and replaced it with a movement speed buff after activating the skill.
    • Advanced Attachment – Horizontal Recoil Suppression Attachment (Legendary) – Nerfed
    • This attachment increases the ADS movement speed greatly, which brings abnormal speed.
    • ADS Movement Speed Multiplier: Reduced
