The two-week event will go on till June 2.
80s Action Heroes on Call of Duty: Mobile
The event will see the addition of two new bundles that players can purchase. As one might expect, this includes two new bundles that include Rambo and John McClane. The Rambo Call of Duty: Mobile Bundle includes John Rambo as a selectable character. Other inclusions include three Epic Blueprints, namely one LMG, an assault rifle, and a knife. Further additions include an epic parachute, an avatar, a calling card, a grenade, a tank and a frame.
The Die Hard Call of Duty: Mobile Bundle includes John McClane as a selectable character. It too includes three Epic Blueprints, namely two SMGs and a pistol. It also features an Epic Frag Grenade, a parachute, a cargo truck, an Avatar, a calling card and a frame.
New game mode added to Call of Duty: Mobile
As part of the 80s Action Heroes event, Call of Duty: Mobile gets a new game mode called Guns Blazing. This event gives players the chance to live the 80s action movie power fantasy. Players are tasked with racking up eliminations and become either Rambo or McClane. As these 80s action heroes, players will be able to dual-wield Death Machines and enjoy increased health.
80s Action Heroes on Call of Duty: Warzone and Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War
To be brutally honest, the 80s Action Heroes event looks a lot more fun on Call of Duty: Warzone and Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, as compared to Call of Duty: Mobile. Both these games get bundles as well as new in-game additions. Call of Duty: Warzone gets new points of interest such as the iconic Nakatomi Plaza, complete with floors based on the first Die Hard movie.
Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War sees the addition of new maps as well as new game modes. The new game modes include Die Hardpoint and Rambo’s Gun Game. These take traditional game modes and tweak the established formula for faster and more frenetic action.
