Grind Mode

Grind Mode COD Mobile

Are you a fan of Hardpoint mode? Or, do you fancy playing the Kill Confirmed one? Well, what if we mix both of them? The new Grind mode in Call of Duty: Mobile season 13 is basically the mixture of hardpoint and kill confirmed. What you have to do is, collect the dog tags of your enemies after killing them, and drop them at a certain point. The points will keep on changing, just like in hardpoint.

That being said, you need to be careful while carrying a lot of dog tags, since the majority of the enemies will be focusing on you. The mode has come with an event to reward the players with different skins and camos upon playing it. The event is called “Dog Tag Duty”, and it will be running till the 17th of January.

Following are all the rewards that you can get by playing the Grind Mode, and as a result, completing the Dog Tag Duty event.

  • Nomad – Snowblind
  • Calling Card – Main Stage
  • Antelope A20 – Snowblind
  • Weapon XP Cards

The Counter Intelligence event in Call of Duty: Mobile Season 13 will send you to Western and Eastern Europe to battle it out in spies vs spies game of espionage. Unsurprisingly, it has a lot of rewards to offer. After you completely infiltrate any region, you will receive some rewards based on the difficulty of that particular region.

First up, most of the players will be heading towards West Germany, as it has the lowest difficulty among all. It will reward you with some credits.

Mythic Weapon Concepts

Some new concepts of Mythic weapons will be coming into the game in the future. First up, we have the example of Peacekeeper MK2 – Artifact. As the developers told earlier, this gun was made from a meteorite that fell on earth. Afterward, it was transformed and made into a gun which turned out to be both alien and familiar.

Here’s how the developers designed it

However, the above design was modified to make the gun look the same even with different gunsmith attachments. The attachments were the same as the other guns, but the design was morphed for short, medium, and long-range build. Afterward, the players will be able to customize their guns without disturbing the concept of meteorite.
