Call of Duty: Mobile Season 12 Going Dark update: Everything you need to know

Call of Duty: Mobile’s Season 12 update has arrived. The new update is called ‘Going Dark’ and as expected, it introduces Night Mode to matches and tasks players with relying on Night Vision Devices (also known as Night Observation Devices) to make their way around. Besides this, the update also adds new weapons, Operator Skill and Battle Royale class and more. 

New Map

As teased before, Call of Duty: Mobile has got the new Hackney Yard map from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. The new map features an urban warehouse setting and is said to offer something for all players, regardless of their weapon preference. Interestingly, the new map is one of the few that currently offer a night mode. Speaking of which... 

Night Mode

The much anticipated night mode has finally made its way to Call of Duty: Mobile. The mode is only available for three maps right now. Namely, the above mentioned Hackney Yard, Summit and Crash. As of now, there is no word if the mode will be available in Battle Royale mode or if new maps will be added in the future. But we do know that Attack of the Undead mode will be added soon. 

New weapons

The new season also brings with it two new weapons. The first is a new SMG called the AGR 556. It’s said to be a balanced weapon that can be used in a multitude of situations. Interestingly, the weapons come with a unique attachment called the 5.56 ammo type that improves the weapon’s range and damage output. The weapon will be available for all players who manage to reach tier 21 in the battle pass.

The other weapon is the .50 GS pistol. This secondary weapon will be available after November 26 via the Small Arms event. The weapon offers a high damage output, but at a very slow rate of fire. It should be noted that the Akimbo perk will be available for the weapon, so players can wield two of them at the same time.  

New Operator Skill

The Ballistic Shield Operator Skill is available to all players once they reach tier 14 in the season’s battle pass. As the name would suggest, the Ballistic Shield gives players a portable bulletproof shield. The shield also comes with a small pre-attached weapon that can be used to attack enemies. 

Of course, the update also comes with a bunch of fixes, improvements as well as new characters and skins. There is also a new Perk called 'Launcher+' that lets players carry an extra rocket for the SMRS or the FHJ-18 rocket launchers. You can learn more about those here.
