Call of Duty Mobile Season 3 Tokyo Escape: Oasis, Coastal
The new season of Call of Duty Mobile is almost here and may already be here by the time you read this, so it is time to go over everything in this new batch of content. Call of Duty Mobile Season 3 is the third one this year and in this line of rebooted seasons for the mobile game.
Call of Duty Mobile Season 3 Tokyo Escape Release Timing
Call of Duty Mobile Season 3 is officially known as Tokyo Escape. It has a beautiful sakura (cherry blossom) pink-inspired color scheme to it throughout the marketing materials and the battle pass that players are going to be pursuing during this season.
The spring season is here, and it seems that Tencent and Activision are in the spring mood as this Tokyo Escape Season has a much more light and colorful feel that we haven’t seen in the past from all of the dark and grim military and sci-fi themed seasons.
At the time of writing this, Call of Duty Mobile Season 3 is not available just yet for players to check out, but it will soon be. The patch notes have revealed that the new season’s timing will be on April 16 (today) at around 5 p.m. PT (8 p.m. ET).
For some players worldwide, that means it will not be released until Friday, April 17 for you. Though Activision has not released the official patch notes for the new season of content, the Garena version of the game that is, for all intents and purposes, mostly the same game, has.
Using those patch notes, we can figure out most everything in the official Call of Duty Mobile Season 3 Tokyo Escape patch notes. This includes the new abilities, battle pass, gun, multiplayer maps, game mode, and so much more. Let’s get started.
Season 3 Battle Pass Revealed
As mentioned already, the Season 3 battle pass will be much more colorful all around when compared to nearly every other season that we have had in Call of Duty Mobile, like the currently ending second one. While some players might not be a fan of that, it is a nice and very much needed breath of fresh air from the usual dark color scheme of the game.
There will always be around 50 tiers of battle pass levels for players to go through with a variety of items across each of the levels. Some of them will be free to everyone in the game, while others will require you to purchase the paid battle pass to unlock them.
When it comes to the free items that are going to be available to everyone through the battle pass, a couple of them are noteworthy. The first is the new PP19 Bizon weapon. The other is the Bull Charge operator skill that you can use in multiplayer matches.
Some other free items you will be able to get in the Tokyo Escape battle pass, but they are the usual items; those are the unique ones for this season. On the other hand, if you want to enjoy all of the various rewards this season, you will need the premium battle pass.
The paid battle pass comes with all of the items available to you across the 50 tiers so long as you can unlock them by the end of the season. Some of the most notable items that you can get include the new weapon blueprints that have arrived this season.
One of them is the Yokai PP19 Bizon weapon blueprint, a great version of the brand new weapon releasing this season. For the QXR, the Scorching Sun weapon blueprint, the Oni one for the Type 25 rifle, the Scabbard for the ASM10, and the Karuta for the RUS-79U.
These weapon blueprints are epic rarity ones and can be unlocked through the paid battle pass this season. Some epic soldier skins this season like The Boss Hidora Kai skin, Escape Zero skin, Ninja Spectre one, and the Sensei Takeo one.
And last but not least, there is yet another legendary calling card that players will be able to unlock, likely at the final tier or so for the battle pass. This season’s Showdown calling card that you can use in matches to show off to your teammates and enemies alike.
New Abilities, Weapon, and Perks
As mentioned already, there will be new abilities, weapons, perks, and more that are releasing this season. Let’s start with the new weapons as these are what many players are going to be excited for. There are two weapons this season. The first is the aforementioned PP19 Bizon.
The Bizon is a brand new SMG weapon unique in the weapon class for having a high rate of fire and reduced recoil compared to most of the other weapons. But it works best in close combat as that is when it truly shines.
Players will be able to destroy enemies in close range with only three shots necessary to kill, which is impressive given how fast the gun fires each shot. But this does come at the cost of range as it will not be super useful when it comes to longer ranges of fighting. You can unlock this in the battle pass.
The other new base weapon is the Renetti. This unique weapon is built from the ground up for three-round bursts of fire. It has suppressed recoil control so that you will be able to accomplish these bursts more easily. Players who like the burst fire in games might enjoy this recoil-friendly new weapon.
However, you will not get the Renetti through the battle pass like the other new weapon. Instead, it will be released later this season in one of the special events. In that event, players will need to complete various challenges to unlock it. Alternatively, there will likely be a store bundle you can purchase to unlock its greatness instantly.
For the new operator skill that is here this season, we have the Bull Charge. This one is pretty simple: what it does is allow the operator to charge forward and destroy the enemies in your path. It is a quick and powerful ability but one that will leave you vulnerable to those not in your direct path. It is unlocked through the battle pass.
There is a new perk as well this season that is known as Overclock. This one is simple, too, increasing the charging speed of the operator skill that you have. For those of you who love to use your favorite skill all the time, this perk will be a must-have in multiplayer loadouts.
And for those of you who are battle royale fans, there is a new class this time around with the Spotter class. The passive is known as the Fly Swatter ability. It shows nearby winged enemies who are gliding and increases the reload speed of rocket launcher weapons.
The active ability is Cluster Strike. This useful ability lets you launch an air strike to a designated area. The Spotter ability can be a great class for battle royale when used right, especially in the respawn-centric game modes.
Oasis and Coastal Multiplayer Maps Arrive
Call of Duty Mobile Season 3 wouldn’t be complete without some new multiplayer maps for players to check out. Fortunately, there are plenty of those this season. The first of these is Oasis, a named map at an oasis in the middle of a Middle Eastern desert.
This oasis town is the setting for the map location. Players will have fierce combat scenarios throughout the town. It looks to be a pretty and varied map with different playstyles catered to here. The Oasis multiplayer map will be available for the Frontline mode in Call of Duty Mobile.
Coastal’s next one is another map that is fairly simply named but explains what it is well. Here, you will find a scenic coastal town where players will compete across the various shops, squares, fountains, and wine cellars throughout the picturesque area.
Interestingly, the Coastal map is exclusive to a game mode for now, too, but not one that we expected. The official patch notes note that it is only for the Search & Destroy mode for this time. Oddly, it is only there and not in other game modes like Team Deathmatch, Domination, and the like, so we will have to wait and see what happens with this one.
New Game Mode Explained
As always, a new season of content wouldn’t be complete without at least one new game mode. There is, thankfully, one this season. It is a classic from the Call of Duty series past and one that we are sure fans of it will be glad to know is finally back once more.
We are talking about the classic Swords & Stones. You might know it from its former name of Sticks & Stones in other titles in the series, and it has to do with a very different type of gameplay. It will not be for everyone, but it is something unique nonetheless.
In Swords & Stones, this is a melee-only game mode where players will have to use a wide range of melee weapons to take out other players. Simultaneously, there is a rage buff that will be given to players while they are in the match to encourage more crazy close combat fighting.
So, whatever melee weapon you like in the game, equip it and head into this mode. The game mode will give you a Hachi to use in battle. This new Swords & Stones game mode will be available on the Crash, Standoff, Killhouse, and other multiplayer maps.
Various Improvements and Optimizations
This update is full of various improvements, optimizations, and the like as well. The Napalm Strike now has slightly more increased burning range after its explosion to catch more players in the fire to kick it off. Also, the Napalm plane will speed up, and the missile’s falling speed is faster now, too.
