Call of Duty®: Mobile Map Snapshot: Cage
Disavowed, the fourth season of Call of Duty: Mobile is here and with it comes the first Multiplayer map developed specifically for Call of Duty: Mobile: Cage. A small map set in an urban construction site, Cage encourages frequent close quarters engagements, flanked by long sight lines opening opportunities for snipers and other long-range attackers.
As a small map featuring a symmetrical layout, it doesn’t take long to get your bearings on Cage. The top and bottom spawns mirror each other, with each team facing a staircase straight up the middle for a vantage point over the center, and long open alleys to either side.
Much of the action takes place along the map’s natural vertical flow, though with the center being open on the sides, expect plentiful engagements as players cross from alley to alley seeking shortcuts to their enemy’s demise.
The alleyways naturally attract snipers and other long-range attackers, who can dodge in and out of cover while pelting enemy players. If you’re on the receiving end of this, use the tall cover in the center alley for protection, and then either pop back out and attack or back up to a safer location.
Short-range loadouts perform exceptionally well in the side buildings, where players are squeezed together. Rush in, hip-fire to maximize your mobility against close targets, and then either move on or defend your position and shoot enemies below.
Now that you’ve got a grip on the basics, let’s dig into specifics. Don’t run always run straight in — the shortest path isn’t always the best path, especially in a small map like this where you can flank easily. If middle map is seeing the most action, run into one of the side buildings and shoot down.
Scorestreak Field Guide
Provide Intel and counter-intel with the UAV and Counter-UAV, to give your team the upper hand in this small map where knowing the enemy’s location is so important. Enemy snipers grouping up in their spawn?
The Sentry Gun can do real work placed at either end of an alley, or along one of the side staircases pointing toward a spawn location. You might want to stick around to protect it, however, or you risk giving the enemy an easy flank to disable the automated weapon. And when the enemy team is unleashing their Scorestreaks on you, take out a launcher to even up the playing field.
Cage’s supported modes on release — Team Deathmatch, Snipers Only, Gun Game, Free-for-All — are all about the kills. Much of the above can be used to dominate in any of these modes, particularly in Team Deathmatch and Snipers Only.
For Snipers Only, you have the option of equipping the powerful and slow DL Q33, or the faster but less powerful Arctic .50. 10 Tips Just because the map is small, it doesn’t mean you need to run recklessly around. A precision weapon and strong positioning can take care of enemies caught in the frenzy of middle map.
You’ll heal up faster, stay on target when shot, and have an extra layer of awareness for enemies attempting a flank.
