Blackout is back! Call of Duty: Mobile Season 8: 2nd Anniversary launches on Wednesday, September 22nd, 2021 at 5 p.m. PT, and at launch, players will be able to revisit the very first Call of Duty Battle Royale map — Blackout.
Originally launched in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, Blackout was the largest map in any Call of Duty game ever and featured parts of existing multiplayer maps such as Estate, Nuketown, Construction Site and many more. In addition to Blackout, the Battle Royale experience is being updated and enhanced. During the Anniversary season, we’ll also be announcing an exciting new tournament set on the Blackout map.
Throughout Season 8, players will be able to celebrate the 2nd birthday of Call of Duty: Mobile with three new events — an Anniversary Cake event, an Anniversary Puzzle event, and a new themed event called Counterattack.
Additionally, players will have the opportunity to earn 50 new tiers of Battle Pass rewards. Season 8 launches with a fresh supply of free and premium content including new characters such as Alias – Battleworn and Velikan – Volcanic Ash, new functional weapons – the R9-0 shotgun and later in the season, the M13 assault rifle, a new Scorestreak, Weapon Blueprints, Calling Cards, Charms, Call of Duty Points (CP), and more.

Updated Crash Map
Crash, originally launched with Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare is the most played map in Call of Duty: Mobile. For the Anniversary, players will be treated to a new and improved version of the map with updated graphics.
New Mode/ Limited Time Event – Counterattack
This new mode brings Non-Player Characters (NPCs) and PvE gameplay to Call of Duty: Mobile Battle Royale for the first time.
