Every new season of Call of Duty: Mobile involves a swath of weapon balancing, with the developers taking the opportunity to buff or nerf the game's arsenal in a bid to achieve balance and keep the meta fresh.

Season 6 "To the Skies" looks to be no different; set for release on Wednesday, June 29, the update will introduce two new weapons: the KSP 45 and L-CAR 9, as well as tweak weapon's from every available class.

Well, at least that was in what a recent leak claims, with the full, official patch notes not expected to be released until next week.

The information looks good, though, so if you are curious about the weapon balance changes in COD: Mobile Season 6, here is what we know so far.

COD: Mobile Season 6 - Weapon Balance Changes

As mentioned before, the following weapon balance information comes courtesy of a leaker, Twitter user LeakersOnDuty.

They claim that over 20 weapons will be buffed or nerfed heading into Season 6 with notable changes to the Man-O-War and ASM10 assault rifles. A range of shotguns are also getting a major buff, firing more pellets per shot with just slightly reduced damage.

It may be the season that introduces player-controlled fighter jets, but it may well prove to be that this season is really all about getting up close and personal with your preferred shotgun.

Of course, this information could prove faulty, or there may be further changes before the launch of Season 6 proper, so check back with us on launch day for all the latest.

Update: These leaked weapon balance changes turned out to be correct, so get reading and get caught up!
