Activision has released a new public test build (beta) for Call of Duty: Mobile. The build is being used to test the balancing of different weapons in the game.

The public test build has been released only for Android devices. The download size is about 2GB. The public test build is only open to 40,000 players, so fans have to be quick if they want to check out the upcoming features in the game. The end date for the test hasn't been announced yet.

Weapon balancing in CoD: Mobile is something a lot of players have been complaining about, especially in the ongoing season two. Through the public test build, Activision aims to test a "wide variety of changes, adjustments, and improvements" which will "create more weapon variability, better SMG mobility, and stronger overall weapon balance change."

The public test build is completely different from the main version of Call of Duty: Mobile. Playing the test build won't affect your stats in the main version of the game. Activision said all information and player data collected during the test will be deleted.
