Even though Call of Duty: Mobile is still in its pre-registration phase, that has not stopped Activision from sharing more details about the upcoming title. Just recently, they showed off many of the features and modes that players will be able to experience in the game. One such mode that will be available is Battle Royale, and while it isn't the same as Call of Duty: Black Ops 4's Blackout, it does offer plenty for players to enjoy. The map for the popular mode was recently revealed, but now Activision has released a bounty of information on what we can expect in Call of Duty: Mobile Battle Royale.
Taking to their blog, Activision outlined a host of information regarding the Battle Royale mode featured in Call of Duty: Mobile, including map locations, vehicles, character classes, and a ton of various features. Here's what players can expect when they are able to jump into the Battle Royale action in Call of Duty: Mobile later this year.
Before actually jumping into the Battle Royale fun featured in Call of Duty: Mobile, players will need to ensure they are prepared. They are able to do this by changing up their class, with each coming with its own Ability and Class Skill. After this, it's time to parachute in, loot, run, fight, and survive.
- There are six basic actions to undertake as a Battle Royale match occurs:
- Firstly, you pick the class you want to play as; each with a an Ability and Class Skill designed to match your style of play.
- Secondly, as the match begins, you and up to 100 other rivals utilize a wingsuit, dropping out of an aircraft and steering toward a favored part of the sprawling Battle Royale map, before pulling the ripcord and landing by parachute.
- Next, the scavenging begins! Without equipment or armaments, you need to find items dotting about the map, usually in buildings or supply caches. When you’re tooled up sufficiently, it’s time to engage. Or hide.
Move Fast & Hide
- It’s usually recommended to push to a relatively-safe area, encroaching on a building and positioning yourself out of view of any rivals. Then you can play an offensive or defensive game, depending on the variables of the match in question.
- If you’re playing Duos or Quads, expect to dash to the aid of a fallen friend; reviving them if they’ve been neutralized by a foe; naturally you need to keep your wits about you so you aren’t tagged too!
- Obviously, you’re spending the rest of the match battling for supremacy of the map, aiming to be the last person standing. Use all methods to stay alive until the end of the game!
- With the ability to place a deformable Transform Shield, this class also is Reinforced, raising resistance to all damage except bullets.
- Able to call an EMP Drone to create electro-magnetic interference on hostile forces, this class also features the Engineer ability, granting augmented sight to vehicles, hostile traps, and other equipment.
- Utilizing the Sensor Dart that can view hostile positions in the immediate area of the radar map, this class also benefits from the Tracker ability; allowing you to see fresh footprints of hostiles.
- A master of distraction and friend of the undead, this class has a Toy Bomb to detonate, summoning zombies that only attack hostiles near to them; due in part to the Clown having the Anti-Zombie ability, which reduces the zombies’ aggression distance.
- This class can place a Medical Station that continuously heals the Medic and associated allies in the immediate vicinity. In addition, the Master Healer ability allows a Medic to heal more quickly, and reduces the time it takes to revive teammates.
- Lastly, this clandestine class has a Grapple Gun that fires a hook, allowing you to propel yourself up and onto target buildings or across the landscape at speed. Movement is quiet too, due to this class having the Dead Silence ability.
In order to get around the Battle Royale map featured in Call of Duty: Mobile, players will have a handful of options. As always, one can run around as they please, but in order to speed up the process a bit, vehicles are definitely a good route to take. The popular mode will feature a few different options when it comes to getting around the map quickly, which are as follows:
- A two-person quad-bike with speed but little protection.
- With room for three including the pilot, allowing you to rain down fire from above.
- An armored troop carrier with room for four, offering more ponderous mobility, but the extra protection compared to the ATV.
- Take to the waters (including an ocean and rivers) in this fast boat, but watch for snipers!
