Call of Duty Mobile’s Halloween update has been rolled out, bringing tons of creep content such as a new map and new modes including zombies and Pumpkin Confirmed. The spooky new content will be going live in the game just in time before Halloween.
This new content comes right after one of Call of Duty Mobile’s biggest update yet, celebrating its one-year anniversary earlier this month. The game has been performing extremely well, accumulating over 300 million downloads in just a year since its release.
Even though a big event has just been concluded, the Halloween update didn’t fail to bring fresh content to the game that is sufficient to get its players excited once again. Perhaps the most interesting addition is the return of zombie mode, which was removed from the game last March, although in retrospect this is the ideal time for the game to test the waters with this mode again.

Peculiarly, after witnessing the action-packed trailer, many of the viewers noticed a war machine with a new skin, wondering if there are new cosmetics coming to the game.
The trailer revealing the new update was posted on the official Twitter account of Call of Duty Mobile with an affirmation that the event is now live and enumerating all the new content for players can enjoy.
First, Pumpkin Confirmed has been released, which is the Halloween edition of Kill Confirmed where players need to collect jack o lanterns rather than dog tags. Second, the Halloween Standoff map will be added and ready for players to explore, and based on the video, is a returning map with a Halloween-inspired twist which mostly appears to contain a lot of jack o lanterns.
Lastly, the Undead Fog, which is a battle royale zombie mode, has just been released today, October 30, just in time for the scary days. The mode is set to be available until November 5, giving fans six days to kill off the zombies in the undead battle royale mode. The teaser also states “some treat-filled mystery boxes” that zombies will drop, indicating several rewards for players to acquire.
Call of Duty Mobile is not the only game in the franchise to join in the Halloween fun. Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War also has new content for its players in the form of a crossover with two of the most popular horror movie franchises, Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Saw. Call of Duty Warzone will also be celebrating the season with a few exclusive pumpkin-themed weapon blueprints.
Activision recently released season 11 to Call of Duty Mobile with the big update celebrating its anniversary, adding new maps, modes, and a new battle royale map called Alcatraz which can be seen infiltrated with zombies in the Undead Fog in the trailer.
Call of Duty Mobile’s Halloween festivities provides even more content and Activision should be cautious not to overwhelm its fans, although the gaming community appears to be excited by all the creepy additions to the game.
