Season 7 will set yet another round of weapon balance changes introduced to Call of Duty: Mobile.

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 7: New Vision City is plenty different to what has come before, but on this point, there is no change with the most recent test build suggesting a number of weapon balance changes were coming to the game.

That isn't the only change to the meta players can expect in Season 7, with the introduction of the Switchblade X9 SM and a brand new battle royale map keeping things fresh in a season in collaboration with the Netflix TV show Ghost in the Shell: SAC_2045.

COD: Mobile Season 7 - Weapon Balance Changes

Assault rifles and sub-machine guns are, once again, the subject of many weapon balance changes, with many that were buffed heading into Season 6, once again, being looked on favorably.

Information collated by Leakers on Duty details how the DR-H, QQ9, M4, KN-44, ASM10, PPSh-41, and Man-of-War are all being buffed again heading into Season 7.

Getting nerfed are the CBR4 and MAC-10 SMGs. The former has been terrorizing players and dominating the meta, but it looks like its days are numbered with its accuracy, mobility, and damage all being hit.

Remember, until Season 7 is officially out or the developers release the patch notes, we can't be 100% that these will be the weapon balance changes. As mentioned before, this information comes from the test build, which is subject to change.
