As Call of Duty: Warzone Mobile prepares for its highly anticipated global launch on March 21, 2024, players can look forward to a host of exciting new features and content updates. One of the most eagerly awaited additions is the iconic "Rust" multiplayer map, which will make its debut in the mobile version on April 3, 2024. While the announcement of Rust's arrival in Warzone Mobile has generated excitement within the community, the recent removal of two beloved maps, Shoot House and Alcatraz, from Call of Duty: Mobile has sparked an outcry among players.

The Iconic Rust Map Arrives Soon on Warzone Mobile

The arrival of Rust is sure to delight fans of the Call of Duty franchise, as this small but intense map has been a staple in previous titles like Modern Warfare 2, Modern Warfare (2019), and Call of Duty: Mobile. Developers have confirmed that players will not only be able to experience Rust in classic multiplayer modes such as Team Deathmatch and Domination but also engage in intense 1v1 battles in private rooms.

More Classic Maps Coming to Warzone Mobile

Rust, however, is not the only highly anticipated addition to Warzone Mobile. Players can also look forward to the inclusion of other fan-favorite maps like Shipment, Shoot House, and Scrapyard, which have been staples in previous Call of Duty titles. Additionally, the mobile version will feature the iconic Battle Royale maps Verdansk and Rebirth Island, providing players with a familiar and immersive experience.

Backlash Over Removal of Fan-Favorite COD: Mobile Maps

While the upcoming arrival of Rust in Warzone Mobile has generated excitement, the recent removal of the beloved Shoot House and Alcatraz maps from Call of Duty: Mobile has outraged players. Many perceive this move as a strategic attempt by Activision to shift attention to Warzone Mobile, even if it means stripping away some of the mobile game's most popular features.

Despite Activision's assurance that the maps will return later this year, fans remain unhappy with the decision. This backlash highlights the challenges developers face in balancing the introduction of new experiences and making it successful while preserving beloved experiences for their existing player base.
