Hardcore Mode Explained in COD Mobile | Maps, Game Modes, Rules

COD Mobile Season 10 has been one of the many great seasons Activision has released. Named “The Hunt”, the ongoing season has given us a variety of new things. We got two new maps, Terminal and Pine. A new shotgun Echo. Many new guns and characters skins. Two new modes: Headquarters and Hardcore. We also got new seasonal and featured events, battle pass rewards and whatnot!

One of the last few things to release this season is the Hardcore Mode. We are here to give you every detail about this event and how it is contrasting to the normal game modes. So, make sure to read all the rules and restrictions of the exclusive mode before hopping into the actual game play.

Hardcore Mode – Rules and Restrictions

Well, it’s not like your everyday game mode, where you enjoy full HP, mini-map, health regeneration etc. It’s very different from them. There are many restrictions in the hardcore mode which we have discussed below.

Lessened Health Points

Straight of the bat, you only have 30 HP. It’s just a matter of one to two shots before you’ll have to re-spawn again. You have to be absolutely on your toes and your reflexes should be on point to win a gunfight here. It’s all about who hits the first shot, you miss I hit kind of scenario.

No Health Restoration

In here, you won’t be getting your health points regenerated like in normal modes. If you are hit one time and your HP drops to 10, then it’ll remain 10 until you die and respawn again with 30 HP. So, try to win the gunfight without taking any damage, if you can.

No Killcam

To make things a bit more difficult, you won’t be having a killcam to spot enemy’s location, from where you were getting shot at. If you are taking a front 1 on 1 gunfight, only then you’ll be able to know the position of your enemy, otherwise you can’t tell if you were hit from right, left or back.

Limited HUD

UAVs are the way to go in this mode. Your mini-map will be displaying NO SIGNAL, and as a result, you won’t be able to see any bullet display to track your enemies. But, if you activate UAV or any one of your teammates does, then you all will be able to see what’s going on in the mini-map.

Friendly Fire ON

The hardcore mode demands you to be as accurate and precise as possible. If you are taking a gunfight with your teammates in front of the enemy, then there’s a high chance, you might hit them well. What you can do is, don’t stand behind your teammate. Try to take the gunfight from a different angle, to keep your ally and yourself safe.
