OverviewOverview

Call of Duty Mobile is a shooting game where up to 100 players compete on large battlefield maps. To win, players shoot each other, ideally in the head, in a range of modes. Fast 5v5 team deathmatches. Sniper vs sniper battles.

Although on mobile devices, the game aims to deliver an experience like you get on a bigger console. You can adjust the controls on the smaller screen as well as use voice and text chat to co-orindinate with other players.

As you progress you unlock characters, weapons, outfits, score streaks and pieces of gear to use in the game. But the focus is still kept on skill and strategy. In competitive Ranked Modes you compete to improve your online rank an earn prizes for your community and "Clan" of other players.

Played from a first-person perspective, these games take considerable skill to master. Although the setting, weaponry, narrative and game modes are developed and enhanced each year, the core experience remains the same:
