Call of Duty: Mobile Season 1: Heist – New Maps
The Hacienda map will be a new addition to Call of Duty: Mobile. As with pretty much all other maps, it’s not new to the series. The map was first seen in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 and is set in the Spanish Countryside. The estate is said to belong to a crime lord and features areas such as a vineyard, boathouse, arsenal and a central courtyard.
The second new map isn’t exactly new. The classic Nuketown map gets a makeover with Nuketown Temple. The map gets into the theme of the Lunar New Year. The map is now set in the middle of a city with new architecture, props and more. However, the overall layout of the map will remain unchanged, similar to Nuketown Russia.
Call of Duty: Mobile Season 1: Heist – Other New Features
The Winter Wish event will see players choose from a pool of new items, and then acquire tokens to spend and unlock the items. The Lunar New Year Puzzle event will see players earn tokens for completing tasks, and slowly uncovering the puzzle over time and earn rewards for the same.

In place of the dog tags, players will collect red envelopes and discover the hidden easter egg to launch fireworks. Collecting envelopes will also give players a chance to earn rewards.
Finally, there are new additions to Battle Royale. The Isolated and Blackout maps will see cosmetic updates to watch the Lunar New Year theme. The Isolated map will also feature ann exclusive snowboarding mini-game.
