This update is expected to feature several updates to the Battle Royale mode, new weapons and character skins. And with this, the COD Mobile team has revealed a brand new small map called King for the two popular modes – 2v2 Gunfight and 1v1 Duel.

King Map – Map Overview

King is a very simple small map built in a warehouse ground floor level, similar to Killhouse. It has multiple raised floors and containers with three walkways that cut horizontally through the higher center and a multitude of entries and exits along the side routes.

Since this is a small map with not many hiding spots, the kill will come in fast and a lot of players will prefer a snipers only match in this map. You will have to be very quick with your reflexes and have sharp senses as you never know where you enemy is going to take you down from. Our tip, equip the High Alert perk in your loadout.

P.S. For seasoned veterans of FPS games, this map reminds us a lot of awp_india map from Counter-Strike 1.6.

King Map – Best Strategies

In a map like King, you need to have a strategy in mind. These small maps are fast and you are quickly done with each round. Here are some of the common opening moves you can try:

Sprint to Central Platform:

One of the best opening move is to sprint up to the central platform and look around for the enemy. This is very useful when you have a long-range sniper like DL-Q33 equipped in your loadout. You obviously get the height advantage along with the distance you need for the sniper take-down.

Container Rush:

As soon as you spawn, race down the sides and get to their spawn side to spot the enemy and take him down. This opening move is also known as the container rush move which has to be done in the first few seconds. If you have a slow opponent, there is a good chance he may not see you coming to his side.

King Map – Top 5 Tips

Here are the top 5 tips for playing Duel and Gunfight mode matches in this King map in Call of Duty: Mobile.

Use Hip Fire:

As much as we recommend using ADS for accuracy, there are times when you need to use the hip fire for taking down your opponents quickly. These Gunfight and Duel matches are exactly that.

Put On Headphones:

Put on headphones or turn up the volume in your phone to listen to the enemy footsteps approaching you. As the enemy is closing in, you will be in a better position to fire back if you know from which side he is coming.

Master Your Weapons:

As you do not have an option to pick a loadout for later rounds in Gunfight matches, you should spend some extra time to practice with loadouts you are not comfortable with. If you are only good with SMGs or assault rifles in close range, there will be times when you will have to shoot an enemy at long-range with a sniper.

Wait For Overtime Flag:

If you have been around the King map a few times and cannot find the opponent or take him down with a clear shot, hide and wait for the overtime flag to show up. Make sure you do not give up your position in doing so.

Keep Moving:

This is one of those maps where you have to keep moving, you cannot stay still at one position or you will risk getting shot. Pick a spot and run towards it trying to find the enemy along the way. You can move sideways or use the central platform.
