Call of Duty (COD): Mobile Season 8 kicked off an event called “Counterattack.” The event is linked to the latest battle royale (BR) map in COD Mobile called Blackout. The new battle royale map is one of the largest maps in the game and will contain non-playable characters (NPC) that players can interact with. Recruiting these NPCs will provide players with missions that reward event points to unlock a slew of exciting in-game cosmetics and collectibles. There will also be a leaderboard for competitive players that rewards them with operator skins if they manage to stay within the top 10% on the leaderboard when the event officially ends.

How to play the Counterattack event in COD Mobile Season 8

The latest season of COD Mobile dropped on 23rd Sept 2021, bringing in a ton of new in-game content to celebrate the game’s 2nd Anniversary. One of the events is titled Counterattack and is tied to the Blackout BR map that debuted in COD Mobile Season 8.

Players can find the event under the Battle Pass tab in the main menu. The event requires players to play the new Blackout BR map and interact with NPCs that appear on the map. Players can recruit these NPCs which in return, provide them with missions that they can complete to earn points and unlock rewards.

The more NPCs that players recruit, the faster the players can make progress in the event. There will be special materials needed to complete missions, these materials can be acquired by simply playing in the new BR map.

Here are the rewards that players can acquire after reaching certain milestones;

  • 100 points: Knife- Burnt Ruin

  • 200 points: 2nd Anniversary spray

  • 300 points: Ak-47 Burnt Ruin

  • 500 points: NA-45 Burnt Ruin

  • 700 points: Wingsuit Burnt Ruin

  • 900 points: 2nd Anniversary sticker

  • 1200 points: Cordite Burnt Ruin

  • 1500 points: 2nd Anniversary frame

  • 4500 points: Locus Burnt Ruin

  • 5500 points: Motorcycle Burnt Ruin

  • 7000 points: SMRS Burnt Ruin

  • 9600 points: MX9 Second Round

Competitive players can also test their skills and be rewarded for being one of the best. The top 10% of players in the Blackout BR map leaderboard will receive a free operator skin at the end of the event. The end date of the event is yet to be revealed by Activision so players will have to wait for more updates.

The COD Mobile 2nd Anniversary Celebration has just begun. Players can expect more surprises from Activision in the coming few days. In the meantime, players can begin their grind to earn all these new rewards in this new Counterattack event.
