CoD Mobile Ghost

Rising from the depths of Season 5: In Deep Water is the long awaited and legendary Ghost – Retribution! The fan favorite Ghost returned from the dead earlier this season in the comics (found in-game by the Battle Pass) and as of yesterday we have our first ever Legendary variant of Ghost. 

Ghost – Retribution comes equipped with a variety of unique cosmetics! For the first time for a legendary operator, many of these cosmetics are based in Battle Royale instead of Multiplayer. Here are the details:

  • Custom Lobby Screen
  • Custom Opening BR Animation (with Riley)
  • BR Class Clown Spawns Riley instead of the usual K9 Unit
  • Ghost Styled Death Box
  • Holographic Kill Counter Watch/Device

Omnipotent Draw
