Call of Duty Mobile Juggernaut, More Drop in Season 8 Update

Activision has released Call of Duty Mobile season 8. After a month or so since the launch of the last season, we are now ready for the eighth season to date. From the onset, there is a ton of new content to check out, including the new Call of Duty Mobile Juggernaut game mode and more. 

Call of Duty Mobile Season 8 Is Here


Call of Duty Mobile season 8 is here and you are able to download it right now if you are on Android or iOS devices. No matter which platform you are on, the update is now available. However, there is something that is worth mentioning regarding downloading and installing this update patch. 

Unfortunately, we are currently getting reports at the time of writing this about the update causing issues for players on the various platforms. Some are reporting that the game is causing major crashes for them after installing season 8 and that it is virtually unplayable at this time. 

It is possible that there is some massive issue with the patch that needs to be resolved by the developer immediately. As such, keep this in mind when updating the game. If you aren’t comfortable with doing so until a fix is issued, we understand and that is not a bad idea at this point. 

Regardless, once the update is working and fixed for all of the players, you will be able to check out a ton of new content, game modes, a map, and more that is available in season 8. Titled The Forge, this season follows up on the radioactive seventh season with a post-apocalyptic theme with items and areas to reflect that. Here’s everything you need to know about it. 

Season 8 Roadmap and Battle Pass


Starting off things is the roadmap for the next month or so that will cover all of season 8. The roadmap doesn’t cover everything that will be released this season, but it does go over most of the new content and more that you can expect in season 8. 

For the paid battle pass this season, you are guaranteed to get a lot more items than that, most of which are just unique cosmetic ones. Some items of note are the Tank Dempsey Wrecker skin at tier one when you purchase the pass, Prophet Dust Bowl skin at 30, and the Kreuger Reaper skin at 50. 

What is interesting about the paid pass this season is that it is the first time that you are able to get a new cosmetic type in the form of a skin for the battle royale tank at tier one. In addition, emotes are back, which was long-requested from the community with a single emote at tier 49. 

If you have the paid battle pass, you will also get 25% extra experience for the battle pass for the duration of the season. Because of this, it is better to go ahead and get the premium version now if you are going to be playing a lot and are already planning to purchase it. 

Call of Duty Mobile Juggernaut Game Mode Arrives


For those of you who are more interested in the new content this season, by far the biggest drop is the Call of Duty Mobile Juggernaut game mode. This one will be familiar to series veterans who played games like Modern Warfare 3 back in the day on Xbox 360, PS3, and PC.

This Call of Duty Mobile Juggernaut game mode is all about the Juggernaut suit, something that is quite controversial and loved at the same time. In this special game mode, there will be six players in total that will be competing with five of them taking on the player with the Juggernaut suit. 

The player with the death suit is actually using the familiar X-51 Goliath scorestreak that has the death machine and plenty of armor to keep them alive for a long time if used right. There are no loadouts in the game mode; instead, players will use armament boxes to get skills and the like. 

The gist of it is that the five players on the opposing side will need to equip gear and try to take down the Call of Duty Mobile Juggernaut suit. While the other player is trying to survive as long as they can, using their immense firepower to take out the other players in the match. 

What’s interesting about this game mode is that it isn’t a complete team-based game type as it might seem. This is because the player who takes down the Juggernaut user will then become the Juggernaut themselves and have to fight against their former allies. 

In this way, it is more like a temporary team mode that is actually more like a free-for-all. There will be only one winner and that is the player with the most points by the end of the match. So, it is in the player’s best interest to take down the Call of Duty Mobile Juggernaut and become them so they can wrack up some easy points. 

To celebrate the launch of the Call of Duty Mobile Juggernaut game mode, there is an event going on this season called Juggernaut Mania. It will only stick around from now until July 16, but it will offer various rewards and challenges for players to complete through the new game mode. 

Some of the rewards that you can get exclusively through this event include the M4LMG Sight Unseen skin, Gravedigger Frame, J358 Stream skin, and many more. This event is only here for less than a week, so be sure to complete these challenges as fast as you can. 

New Highrise Map and Survival of the Fittest


Like with any new season in Call of Duty Mobile, there is at least one new map to check out and this season, it is the Highrise one. This one will be familiar to anyone who played Modern Warfare 2 as it is one of the fan favorite maps from that game. 

Highrise is a medium-sized map that provides a wide range of different opportunities for strategy. You have the indoor offices that allow for close combat, the open rooftops for snipers and mid-range attacks, and several different floors for strategizing and getting around your opponents. 

New Items and Katana Operator Skill


As with any new season, there are some new items that you can pick up in the item shop. Some of the new items right now are the epic RUS-79U Moonstone skin, BK57 Strapped skin, and many more. If you do not want to spend cash, there is a free operator skill that will be available this season. 

The new Katana operator skill is exactly what it sounds like: you will be able to wield a deadly katana. When you use this skill in combat, the camera will shift to a third-person one and you will be able to lock onto enemies, and slice through them with a one-hit kill attack. 

What’s crazy about the Katana skill is that it can lock on even through smoke but you do have to worry about farther away enemies who can still shoot you down in the process. Later this season, you will be able to unlock the new Katana skill through the Katana Kill event. 

Two New Events This Summer


There are two new events that are set to come out this summer and these are major ones. The first is the Solstice Awakened limited time event that will begin on July 17 and will offer some awesome rewards in exchange for completing various tasks like an epic Man-O-War weapon skin. 

This will be themed around the season 8 theme of post-apocalyptic and will have players playing various maps to collect different items. You’ll then be able to use those resources to exchange them for different rewards that will be given out through the event. 

Players will have to wait a little bit longer for the next event, which is the Days of Summer one. In this event, there will be more lighthearted and summer-themed items that you can get. This special seasonal event will include the first ever skin for an operator skill, the Purifier in this case, and a new character to play as. More to come on this event later in the season. 

Public Test Build and DR-H Weapon


With the release of season 8, an announcement has been made that there will be another public test build event for players who like to see what is in the testing phases for the mobile game. Once again, this testing version of the game will only be available for Android and be a separate app completely. 

This particular test will go over something very unique, a feature of some sort that needs as much feedback as possible before releasing potentially in season 9. This is a great way to get in there and see what season 9 might be all about, long before it releases sometime in August. 

Last but not least, there is a new weapon available this season known as the DR-H. It is the latest assault rifle for Call of Duty Mobile and it is, oddly enough, billed as a close to mid-range weapon that is really strong but has a high recoil at the same time, hence the limited range. As noted, you will be able to unlock this weapon and use it in combat by reaching tier 21 on either the free or paid battle pass this season. 

For more on the Call of Duty season 8 patch notes that we weren’t able to cover plus comments from the community regarding everything, be sure to check out the full list of all new content and changes here on the official Reddit thread for the mobile game.

Where to Find the Electirizer and Magmarizer in Pokémon Sword and Shield’s The Crown Tundra expansion

Avatar

Published

With all of the Pokémon being added into Sword and Shield for the first time in The Crown Tundra expansion, there are several items that have also been added to help players complete their Pokédex. 

Two of the more important items are the Electirizer and Magmarizer, which are used to evolve Electabuzz and Magmar into their final forms, Electivire and Magmortar respectively. 

You won’t need to look very hard for either item, as they are readily available in the overworld with no RNG involved. Simply embark into the tundra and you should be able to grab both relatively quickly. 

The Electirizer is the easier of the two to find, as it is just sitting next to a tree in Giant’s Bed, right near the slope heading down into the Old Cemetary. The quickest way to locate it is actually heading up that same slope and looking to your left when you see the location change. 

As for the Magmarizer, it is located in the Tunnel to the Top, one of the northernmost areas on the entire map. It is a maze in there, but if you head through enough of the windy tunnels, you will eventually grab it along with several other useful items hidden within. 

Unlike in previous generations, you don’t need to solely rely on these items to obtain the two powerhouses since they can both appear in Max Raid Battles and as Special Overworld encounters around the tundra. They are still low percentage encounters, but that still could be faster than finding both items, capturing or training up and Electabuzz and Magmar, and then trading them with a friend to trigger the evolutions.

How to get Electabuzz and Electivire in Pokémon Sword and Shield’s The Crown Tundra expansion

Avatar

Published

Several of the most popular evolution lines have been added into Pokémon Sword and Shield as part of The Crown Tundra expansion, meaning there are a lot of trainers trying to fill up their Pokédexes with old friends. 

One of the more polarizing Pokémon that made its return is Electabuzz, along with its evolution Electivire, and pre-evo Elekid. 

Much like with Rhyperior in the base versions of Sword and Shield, it is possible to get both the middle evolution and final form without going through the original methods. Meaning you can capture both Electabuzz and Electivire in the wild without needing to find a trading partner or an Electirizer.

Electabuzz is a pretty common encounter if you look in the right areas, though it will only appear during a Thunderstorm. Electivire will be a lot harder to find, but there are a few places where it spawns as a Special Overworld encounter, also only in a Thunderstorm. 

You can also find both evolutions in Max Raid Battles in most of the same areas. 

Here is where you can find both Electabuzz and Electivire in the wild and Max Raid Battles.

  • Electabuzz
    • Wild: Giant’s Bed, Old Cemetery, Giant’s Foot, Frigid Sea, Three-Point Pass, Ballimere Lake
    • Raids: Frostpoint Field, Giant’s Bed, Frigid Sea, Three-Point Pass, Ballimere Lake, Dynamax Adventures
  • Electivire
    • Wild: Giant’s Bed, Frigid Sea, Three-Point Pass, Ballimere Lake
    • Raids: Frostpoint Field, Giant’s Bed, Frigid Sea, Three-Point Pass, Ballimere Lake

Cloud9 terminate contracts of JT, motm, Sonic, T.c

Cloud9 have terminated the contracts of Ian “⁠motm⁠” Hardy, Johnny “⁠JT⁠” Theodosiou, Aran “⁠Sonic⁠” Groesbeek, and coach Tiaan “⁠T.c⁠” Coertzen after they were found to be in violation of the company’s COVID-19 policy, according to Dust2.us and Rush B Media.

The team had previously received written and verbal warnings after violating the company’s policy by inviting guests over to the Cloud9 team house, and have now had their contracts terminated due to a second offence of the same clause.

“The details that really matter is this was the second offence of unauthorized guests coming into Cloud9 property after being told that this is not all acceptable,” Cloud9 CEO Jack Etienne said in a statement to the two publications. “The reason it is not acceptable is because you are putting our staff at risk.”

The four former Cloud9 members have had their contracts terminated

The four members were asked to move out of the team house following the termination of their contracts, with Cloud9 finding and paying for new accommodations through Monday, October 26. The organisation also offered to move the players’ belongings to their new accommodations, or work with them on how to proceed.

Notably, Josh “⁠oSee⁠” Ohm is not included among the players who had their contracts terminated as he does not live at the team house, leaving him as the sole remaining contracted player of the former Cloud9 roster.

The South African trio will need to find a new organisation to call home post-haste if they wish to remain in the United States as their P1-visas are set to expire in 30 days, after which they would be required to return to their home country. Additionally, JT and motm have announced their free agency since the publication of the story.

The quartet of members who had their contracts terminated are:

South Africa Johnny “⁠JT⁠” Theodosiou
South Africa Aran “⁠Sonic⁠” Groesbeek
United States Ian “⁠motm⁠” Hardy

South Africa Tiaan “⁠T.c⁠” Coertzen (coach)
