Call Of Duty Mobile Season 3 has begun with Scrapyard available as a new map along with the limited-time mode Rapid Fire.

Activision’s Call Of Duty Mobile has been a massive success by reaching 180 million downloads in just its launch quarter. This is the biggest boom any mobile game has received since Pokémon Go, and everyone who has downloaded the experience will now have even more reasons to stay thanks to the launch of season 3 which introduces Scrapyard as a new map along with the limited-time mode Rapid Fire.

Season 3 of Call Of Duty Mobile is the newest download for the game since the holiday update that came with prop hunt and winter raid. It’s been anticipated for awhile, and it comes with two additional maps, as well as a new 20vs20 Battle Royale mode called Warfare.

Below you’ll discover everything you must know about the newly released third season.

Call Of Duty Mobile Season 3 adds Scrapyard map and Rapid Fire mode

Call Of Duty Mobile Season 3 launches today and comes with Scrapyard as a new map and Rapid Fire as a limited-time mode.

Fans of the Call Of Duty series will immediately recognise Scrapyard as a recreation of the Modern Warfare 2 map that went by the same name.

In addition to Scrapyard, the third season will also see the introduction of another additional map named Cage. This will be released at a later date, and it’s said to have a “deceptively basic three-lane design with verticality, open lanes for sniping, and a mixture of close quarters & mid-range options”.

As for the limited-time mode Rapid Fire, it’s said to be a fast-paced experience that comes with “unlimited ammo, faster scorestreaks, and shorter operator skill cooldowns”.

While all of the above is very exciting, the headline feature for Season 3 of Call Of Duty Mobile is no doubt the new 20vs20 Battle Royale mode, Warfare.

This is available on release too, and it involves a team having to reach 150 kills first in order to win the competitive bout. It starts with two team dropping on their respective sides of the map and it features infinite respawns.

Season 3 will also introduce a new season of Ranked Mode. Per Activision, this time you will “have a new Ranked Mode tile on the main page that will allow you to check your ranked status in both Multiplayer and Battle Royale. You can see your rewards, your rank in each mode, and all of the information you might require on your road to Legendary.”

Lastly, there will of course be a new Battle Pass to top of all of the above. The most exciting aspect of this is that its length has been shortened from 100 tiers to 50.

The Call Of Duty Mobile season 3 Battle Pass will launch on January 20th.
