CoD Mobile Season 8 patch notes: New map, vehicles, weapon updates, rewards, and more

Map Updates

Crash has received a visual overhaul including various optimizations to graphics and performance.

New Scorestreak

New Perk

Iron lungs Extend the time a player can steady a sniper rifle's scope when aiming down sights.

Battle Royale

New Map- Blackout

Blackout has arrived. The original classic BR map from Black Ops 4 is now available with the new Season 8 update.

New Vehicle- Rally Car

Slightly slower than the Muscle Car, but seats 4 and allows greater stability with the use of modifications.

BR Class Updates

Poltergeist

Toned down the on-screen warning visuals when a Poltergeist is nearby. Active Camo warning distance increased from 35m to 40m after upgrading Poltergeist. Reduced Active Camo activation time from 2s to 1s

Trickster- Removed holographic effects from Trickster and Trickster decoys (from enemy point of view)

Trap Master- Still somewhere in between overpowered and not, which sounds great to us. We'll see what new discussions emerge and how often this class is used. Minor electrical effect to active Electrical Trip Wires added.

Spotter- Greatly increased the distance of winged enemies shown by Fly Swatter, and Cluster Strike area radius has been increased from 14m to 18m.

Medic

There was a variety of feedback about this class's usefulness and this new update aims to help Medic a viable Battle Royale class once again. As explained by the developer, medic is now able to boost Armor up to 200 for players with 150 Armor or higher. Master Healer: Healing bonus and reduced time required to bring back knocked down allies increased from 15/35 percent to 25/40 percent.
