Call of Duty Mobile has been a huge success. The game received 100 million downloads within the first week of its release and is showing no signs of slowing down. Other Battle Royale games like PUBG Mobile are taking note and introducing new features like the sliding mechanics in their updates.
However, a Call of Duty Mobile update for Halloween is live and brings a ton of new changes to the already smooth gameplay. The size of the update is 83.14 MB (version #: 126.96.36.199).
The new COD Halloween update includes new skills, new customizable items, new scorestreak, etc. However, the new update does not bring the much-anticipated controller support to the game.
