Fans are eagerly awaiting the release of Call of Duty: Mobile Season 3, and although no official announcements have been made, there are plenty of leaks to keep you going.
Because the Test Server for Season 3 is up already, some beta testers have been sharing their findings online with other fans, which is only growing the hype for the official start of the season. With new maps, game modes, weapons, and Scorestreaks, it looks like the developers have gone all-out for this update. The full leaked patch notes are below.
Alongside new features and adjustments, there are a number of new weapons making their way to the game at the start of Season 3. Viiper on Youtube, a test player, has found nine weapons that players can try and get their hands on during special events.
1. ICR (Assault Rifle)
2. Razorback (SMG)
3. Pharo (SMG)
4. Man-O-War (Assault Rifle)
5. KRM 262 (Shotgun)
6. Dredge (LMG)
7. ICR with Grenade Launcher (Assault Rifle)
8. Locus (Sniper Rifle)
9. 870 MCS (Shotgun)
Another brand-new weapon that has leaked is H.I.V.E., which comes with the new operator skill of the same name (as mentioned in point 1.3.1 of the patch notes). Players will be able to use the H.I.V.E gun to “launch a trap of proximity mines. When triggered, the mines will release a swarm of nano drones that kill nearby enemies.”
If you’re the type that likes to customize your gear, you won’t be disappointed by the upcoming Season. Not only are new weapon skins being released, but there a few fresh designs for grenades and vehicles too.
A whole range of new character skins have been leaked, from a stylish Valentine skin for Erin “Battery” Baker, to various new camouflage skins for several characters.
Two more skins will also be available to players as Battle Pass Rewards during Season 3: the Phantom, and FTL1.

Viiper has also revealed some early Gameplay for a new Battle Royale Class – Trap Master. This is the class that was mentioned in point 2.3.1 of the patch notes.
Although these are all just leaks, players don’t have long to wait to see if they’re official, as Season 3 is estimated to start in almost two weeks time, around Jan 20.
