It looks like Activision might be planning to add a new weapon to Call of Duty: Mobile’s melee category. The Chinese version of the game is reportedly adding gloves as part of its ‘Year of the Ox’ event. The event celebrates the Chinese lunar New Year by giving away Lunar New Year Crates. The crates in the Chinese version of the game feature gloves with the ‘Year of the Ox’ theme. It should be noted that while the same crate is also available in the global version, it does not feature gloves. It is not known if or when gloves will be added to the global version of Call of Duty: Mobile.
Call of Duty: Mobile – Gloves statistics
The new gloves can do damage of 50, with a fire rate of 10. It offers 90 in terms of mobility while the range is 10. By comparison, the in-game Axe does greater damage and has a higher range. But it offers a lower rate of fire and mobility.
Interestingly, the gloves seem to have identical specifications as the knife. As such, it’s possible that the gloves are nothing more than a highly customised skin for the knife. Regardless, the weapon is pretty cool and might make for an interesting addition to the global version of Call of Duty: Mobile.
Call of Duty: Mobile – Year of the Ox event
The Year of the Ox is among the newest feature events in Call of Duty: Mobile. While the global variant of the game may not include the gloves, it still has plenty of cool items on offer. The Lunar New Year Crates include the AK47-Year of the Ox, Axe-Quartz, MW11-Quartz and more. It also includes vehicle skins, Calling Cards and more.
In order to get the Lunar New Year Crates, players will have to complete certain challenges to get points. Amassing a certain number of points nets players these crates. There are a total of 10 crates on offer as part of the event. Players can also buy these crates from the in-game store by spending CP.
Besides this, Call of Duty: Mobile is also celebrating Valentine’s Day by offering special crates and bundles, you can learn more about that here.
