One of the most popular aspects of the Call of Duty franchise is the games' score/killstreaks, capable of taking an already excellent in-game performance to another level.

The game's mobile port doesn't shy away from the mechanic either, with Call of Duty: Mobile featuring over 20 scorestreaks, with everything from information-gathering UAVs to mini-gun-equipped mech suits available to players.

And now, as we head into the new year and the soon-to-be-launched Season 1, it appears a new scorestreak is set to be added to the game, and it looks like a doozy.

According to the credible LeakersOnDuty, COD: Mobile will soon be getting the Wheelson scorestreak. Previously appearing in Modern Warfare and its sequel, the Wheelson is a remote-controlled drone with a grenade launcher attached to it.

Due to its small size and player-controlled movement, it is great for moving into enemy-occupied buildings, with its grenade launcher the perfect tool when an opponent is found.

Unfortunately, it is not yet clear if this will arrive in Season 1 or a later season. A recently released test build doesn't allow players to use the Wheelson in-game, though it does appear in the scorestreak menu.

It currently states a score of 750 will be needed to earn the use of it in-game, which is on the cheaper end for a scorestreak.

The Wheelson isn't the only new addition found in the test build, as we've also learned that a new light-machine gun is coming to the game, alongside a new perk called Militant and a health and speed-boosting Stim Shot tactical.

Season 1 is set to launch in January.
