COD Mobile Season 8: New Multiplayer Map and Perk

New Map: Express

Express, which was first featured in Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, is a high-speed rail transit hub where Operators engage in combat both inside the terminal and outside on the rails. Its half-circle layout has numerous long shots and narrow passages.

You can either climb up to the southern power position and fire at the opponents below by traversing the parked train to flank them from one platform to the next. Make sure you are not on the rails when the bullet train comes barreling through, whichever you approach the map.

New Perk: Spycraft

Utilize Spycraft to hack enemy goods on the ground and use them for your own purposes to give your enemies a taste of their own medicine. For the ability to hack the Trophy System, Trip Mine, SAM Turret, Sentry Gun, Transform Shield, and Munitions Box, complete the Seasonal Challenge to earn the Perk. They’ll begin to function in your favor after the manual hack is finished.

The new Battle Royale class Igniter comes in Call of Duty Mobile Season 8

Use the new Igniter Battle Royale class to lure your opponents into burning pits. This class may lay down blazing tar traps that burn and slow adversary Operators who enter the ring of fire. These traps are ideal for closing off access to key spots whether you’re trying to make a clean getaway or holding a position against advancing opponents because they last for many seconds each. The Igniter also gains increased resilience to fire and explosive damage and cannot be hurt or slowed by their own traps.

New Themed Event: Operation Spy Hunt

In Season 8’s Operation: Spy Hunt-themed event, you can play the spy and earn rewards for the intelligence you bring back to base. Gather information by participating in multiplayer and battle royale matches. Then, use that information to uncover opponent information and gain rewards like the Lerch — Gumshoe, the GKS — Claw, and the Charm — Servant of Doom.

As the event progresses, allied informants will move around the information board to help you with your objective. You will automatically receive a discount for intercepting information on the other end if you intercept information to one side of the informant. Make the most of the informants to go along more swiftly.

A special task also awaits in Battle Royale as in Season 8’s Operation: Spy Hunt themed event, you can play the spy and earn rewards for the intelligence you bring back to base. Gather information by participating in multiplayer and battle royale matches. Then, use that information to uncover opponent information and gain rewards like the Lerch — Gumshoe, the GKS — Claw, and the Charm — Servant of Doom.

New Seasonal events in Call of Duty Mobile Season 8 2022

Season 8 brings new Seasonal Challenges that offer rewards like new Weapon Blueprints, Operator Skins, and up to 30,000 Battle Pass XP. You’ll also have the chance to earn the Spycraft Perk and the new Butterfly Knife Melee weapon, the perfect tool for an inconspicuous spy.

Store updates in COD Mobile Season 8 2022

Check the Store throughout Season 8 for a suite of incredible Draws featuring Operators like the new Legendary Sophia — Errant Knight. Left for dead and out for vengeance against her father’s killers, Sophia prefers eliminating targets with her Legendary Butterfly Knife, a gift from her mentor, Vladimir Makarov.

Adjusted the Map Pool of the Ranked Match

Nuketown and Raid have been added into the Generic Map Pool due to their good performance in the New Map Pool. Meanwhile, we have optimized the spawn locations of Miami Strike due to bad performance in the Generic Map Pool. After the optimization, the Miami Strike will also be added into the New Map Pool.

  • Domination
    • Nuketown – Added into the Generic Map Pool.
    • Miami Strike – Added into the New Map Pool.
  • Hardpoint
    • Raid – Added into the Generic Map Pool.
    • Miami Strike – Added into the New Map Pool.

    • Hardpoint
      • Devs have fixed the bug that caused players to not capture the node in specific situations.

Balance Adjustment

Multiplayer and Battle Royale

The strength of the KSP 45 has shown the great potential of the burst guns in the current release. It’s time to bring these diverse burst guns back to the battleground and the devs are on the way to do that.

  • Swordfish Buffed
    • Fire Interval between Bursts: Reduced
    • Hip-fire Bullet Spread: Increased (MP Only)
    • ADS Speed: Increased
    • Halberd Mag
      • Fire Interval In Burst: Reduced
  • Pharo Buffed

Pharo has great potential in damage, even better than the KSP 45 in its heyday. However, its strange trajectory makes it difficult to get started. Devs have greatly improved its recoil control and appropriately reduced its range, making its risk and profit more controllable.

  • Recoil (Pharo): Reduced
  • Range (Pharo): Reduced
  • Chicom Buffed
    • Damage Multiplier: Increased
  • Oden Buffed

Oden remains unchanged while other Assault Rifles with low fire rate have been buffed in the recent releases. To ensure its strength, devs have slightly reduced its recoil and increased its range.

  • Recoil: Reduced
  • Range: Increased
  • PPSh-41 Buffed
    • Horizontal Recoil: Reduced
  • Chopper Buffed

Chopper is an LMG with high hip-fire accuracy and mobility. However, its short range and low penetration limit its suppression capability that LMGs are known for. Therefore, devs have buffed its ADS accuracy, damage, and range.

  • ADS Accuracy: Increased
  • Damage: Increased
  • Range: Increased
  • QXR Buffed

QXR was nerfed heavily awhile back and since then, it hasn’t been able to compete with mainstream weapons. Therefore, devs have brought it back to its normal strength.

  • Damage: Increased
  • KRM-262 Buffed

In the last adjustment, devs improved the benefit of KRM-262’s central pellet hits. However, the average damage of non-precision shots were reduced, which makes it unreliable in high-intensity combat. Therefore, devs have adjusted its damage and pellet allocation to improve its fault tolerance of non-precision shots.

  • Damage: Increased
  • Range: Increased
  • Hip-fire Central Pellets Spread: Reduced
  • JAK-12 Nerfed

JAK-12 now exceeds the expected suppression capability after a round of buffs in the Shotgun class. Therefore, devs have reduced its effective range to make the players more careful in selecting it.

  • Damage Multiplier: Reduced
  • Range: Reduced
  • MX9 Buffed

MX9 is extremely low in its strength for its low damage and hard control after previously being nerfed. After the adjustments, Devs have brought it back to normal strength.

  • Damage: Increased
  • Adjusted the damage/range/damage multiplier in Battle Royale to be all the same with Multiplayer mode
  • LK24 Buffed

Its high accuracy and stability at medium and long range didn’t attract the players during the current release. It’s time to reward the soldiers who pick up the Precise Mod in Battle Royale in Call of Duty Mobile Season 8.

  • Get-Hit Flinch: Reduced
  • Damage Multiplier: Increased
  • HG 40 Buffed

Compared with other SMGs, HG 40 is weak in the fire rate and it cannot exert its advantage. After the adjustments, devs hope its effective combat range can go back to the mainstream level to enable the players to make full use of it.

  • Range: Increased
  • Damage Multiplier: Increased
  • AK-47 Buffed

This classic weapon is significantly popular in Battle Royale but not that popular in Multiplayer. Therefore, we have increased its damage multiplier to improve its strength to the mainstream level.

  • Damage Multiplier: Increased

    • Duration: Increased
  • Echo Grenade Buffed
    • Detect Radius: Increased

Battle Royale Updates

  • SVD Buffed
    • Devs have noticed that the players have limited choices of Snipers with a medium fire rate in BR. It’s time to bring a new choice for combat at medium and long distances in BR.
    • Range of First Stage: Increased
    • Damage Multiplier: Increased
    • Base Vertical Recoil: Reduced
  • Type 25 Buffed
    • Range: Increased
    • Damage: Increased
  • GKS Buffed
    • Range: Increased
  • CR-56 AMAX Buffed
    • Compared to other Assault Rifles with a medium fire rate, the damage of CR-56 AMAX is relatively low. Therefore, devs increased its damage by putting it in a more balanced place.
    • Damage: Increased
  • HVK-30 Nerfed
    • After being buffed twice, especially in MP mode, HVK-30 is now too powerful in BR combat at medium range. Therefore, devs have adjusted its damage penetration in Battle Royale.
    • Range: Adjusted
    • Base Damage: Adjusted

Adjustment of the Class Skill

  • Clown Buffed
    • Recharge Speed: Increased
    • Tracking Range: Increased
  • Airborne Buffed
