Next week will see the launch of Call of Duty: Mobile Season 11, introducing a brand-new battle pass, game mode, and gun in the shape of the EM2 assault rifle.

And as with every new season, there is also a round of weapon balance changes, buffing and nerfing guns across the game's arsenal of weapons and shaking up the COD: Mobile meta.

Knowing what these changes are is crucial heading into a new season because your previously trusted weapon may no longer be meta.

Thankfully, help is at hand as below we list all the weapon balance changes introduced in Season 11.

COD: Mobile Season 11 - Weapon Balance Changes

The details of the Season 11 weapon balance changes come courtesy of LeakersOnDuty, a team of COD: Mobile leakers who regularly get advance notice of the various buffs and nerfs that are coming to the game.

Set for a buff are several submachines, including the Fennec, the GKS, and AGR 556, to name a few.

The submachine class has been buffed and nerfed several times over the year, with the CBR4 and MAC-10 dominating the meta.

It will be interesting to see if these latest buffs will see one of them dethrone the two guns that still sit at the top of the SMG tier list.

Two shotguns, the Striker and Echo, have also been massively buffed, increasing their damage-per-pellet. Could the KRM 262's days be numbered?

Check out the buffs and nerfs below, and let us know in the comments what you think.
