After gathering a lot of hype from the mobile gaming community, Call of Duty: Mobile has gained massive praise and popularity. Fans have been hoping for an online arcade game that was similar to the Chinese exclusive Call of Duty: Online. It is available for free on the App Store.
COD Mobile was everything the community wanted, but on mobile devices. It is developed by Tencent, who also published PUBG: Mobile and is one of the largest companies in China.
Call of Duty: Mobile has a plethora of features and weapons that most players have access to. Players can enjoy Battle Royale or traditional multiplayer as well as zombies, which are on the way.
The maps, weapons, specialist weapons, playable characters, and perks all originate from various past COD games. You can fight for the helicopter in Crash from COD 4, or enjoy the weather on Hijacked from Black Ops 2. You are also able to add your friends, so you can enjoy the mobile experience without being alone.
In terms of weapons, Mobile has nothing short of a variety of guns you may use to defeat your opponents. Like the map selection, the weapons almost all come from previous titles. You want a fast firing sub-machine gun? The PDW from Black Ops 2 is a perfect selection. Have an urge to stay back and snipe from a distance? There’s a selection of bolt-action and semi-auto sniper rifles.
All these great features in a free-to-play mobile game come with the cost of slight pay-to-win micro-transactions. For instance, you can buy guns in the shop with paid COD Points, and gain an advantage over players that choose not to spend a single penny on the game.
Overall, Call of Duty: Mobile is a great way to pass time if you have nothing else to do, and the selection of features gives a viable option for all play styles, and is very enjoyable for players of all skill levels.
