Crossout Mobile is a smartphone version of the popular online vehicular combat game Crossout.

NotesAccessibility Notes


Although your weapons target automatically, you still need quick reactions for other things, such as moving and turning. Some actions require you to rapidly press the screen or hold down on it. You can choose whether you want the left joystick (on the screen) to control the direction of the car or the amount your wheels are turned (similar to a remote-controlled car). You can also adjust the sensitivity and deadzones of this joystick.

While said auto-fire is enabled by default, you can turn it off if you'd prefer.

While the subtitles are large and clear, some of the other text in the game isn't, and can be very small and of low contrast with the background. Indicators on the screen point in the direction of targets, and these are large and clear.
