February Public Test Build #1
The following changes have been addressed in the latest COD Mobile Public Test Build:
- Sliding being interrupted while aiming and the speed of sliding reduced while aiming
- Sliding aim animation bug
- Speed is reduced once ADS instead of being reduced after ADS completes
Furthermore, the developers are testing some changes related to the ability to drop shot. If you aren’t familiar, this a long-standing tactic in many FPS titles that allows players to quickly change their hitbox by dropping to the ground and giving them the advantage on an approaching enemy.
This time around the COD Mobile players have one challenge for MP and one for BP, and with them comes their chance to grab the epic blueprint the GKS – Kistune. Also, for everyone asking about the SKS that is still coming and will be releasing next week on 2.19 (UTC) in the BR Buff event.
Run & Gun
This six-part seasonal challenge is all about using different SMGs in Battle Royale and Multiplayer. Some require just a basic use of a specific setup in a match, while others may require you to get kills or win matches with certain perks equipped. It is all focused on fast and quick setups, and if you manage it you’ll be able to snag the following rewards:
- (Uncommon) Medic – Warp
- (Uncommon) .50 GS– Warp
- (Uncommon) KN-44 – Warp
- (Rare) Backpack – Cosmic Wave
- (Epic) GKS – Kitsune
This four-part seasonal challenge is relatively simple with one clear goal – use Operator Skills and specific ones. This is the easiest to tackle challenges of the two new ones this week and while it doesn’t have an epic weapon blueprint to give out, it does reward you with plenty of Battle Pass XP (17K in total) and the following items:
- (Rare) Spray – Ouroborous
- (Rare) Avatar – Robot Buddy
- (Rare) M16 – Trance
This year for Valentine’s Day it’s decided to celebrate this joyful and generosity-focused holiday by releasing two new content drops while also using it as an excuse to give out gifts to the community. On the content side, we have the Sweet Valentine Crate and the Valentine Redux Draw.
Year of the Ox event
The Year of the Ox event tasks you with getting kills through MP matches and in particular by playing Hardpoint, TDM, Frontline, Domination, and S&D. It has plenty of variety for tasks and the only rewards you can earn on this one are those Lunar New Year Crates. This event is only available for six more days, so make sure to grab those crates now.
