COD Mobile is Getting Huge Balance Changes in Middle of Season 9

It's only been around one week since the introduction of Season 9 in COD Mobile. The season has brought lots of new features which has changed the game entirely. However, the feedback about the update is still somewhat mixed; some people are loving the new content, while others believe it has made the game just a lot more confusing and less fun. But everyone agreed that the new season is not properly balanced, few weapons have been buffed insanely, while others are not pretty much left useless.


If you have recently played COD Mobile, you would know that Molotov has been changed from scorestreaks to lethal equipment, and it has also been buffed hugely. As a result, now people don't even engage in gunfights; they just run throw Molotov, die, and repeat the same thing all over again as soon as they respawn. And such things have made the game very frustrating.

Therefore, as expected, the developers have decided to jump in between, and they announced that they would be bringing a weapon balance change update in the middle of Season 9 to make the game better and enjoyable. Garena (publisher of CODM in SEA) has already announced the patch notes for the balance update while the same is yet to be announced for the global version. But it will be exactly the same for the global version as well, and the update is expected to arrive on 21 August 2020.
