After being in beta for most of the year, Call of Duty Mobile has finally launched worldwide on iOS and Android devices today, October 1. While we're still waiting on the launch of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, you can get your COD fix with Call of Duty Mobile. We've got everything you need to know about the new game right here, including maps, modes, characters, and more.
As soon as you jump into Call of Duty Mobile for the first time, make sure you head to the settings menu and customise it to how you like to play. Call of Duty Mobile is striving to be the ultimate first person shooter experience on handheld devices, so there's plenty to delve into.
One example given by Activision is how there's 17 - yes, seventeen - sliders to adjust your aiming sensitivity. There's options to control how your character holds each weapon by default - such as hip-fire for shotguns and aiming down the sights for assault rifles - and you can also make it automatically fire whenever you're aiming at an enemy. Spend some time curating your experience so you're completely ready when you jump into a match.
Call of Duty Mobile has seven classic maps from the history of the franchise, and we've got details on six of them:
As we expected, none of the Call of Duty Mobile maps are particularly large but each one is a fan favourite - except Killhouse, but maybe it's much better on Call of Duty Mobile? Expect details on the other Call of Duty Mobile map as the game gets closer to a full release.
There's five confirmed game modes in Call of Duty Mobile at launch, not including battle royale which we've got a separate Call of Duty Mobile battle royale guide for. Four of them are immensely popular modes from previous Call of Duty games, while one hasn't been seen before and sounds... very similar to Team Deathmatch. Nevertheless, here are all five Call of Duty Mobile modes:
All modes support 10 players each aside from Free-for-all, which is limited to eight.
It sounds like Call of Duty Mobile loadouts work very similarly to the main games in the franchise, with a primary and secondary weapon choice available from the categories everyone's familiar with. Each class of weapons has "dozens of variants within each type", so there's plenty to choose from.
You can also pick from an explosive or tactical grenade, along with a weapon skill. These are similar to specialist weapons from Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, the latest main instalment in the franchise. Currently, you can use the following: Purifier (flamethrower), War Machine (grenade launcher), Death Machine (minigun), Transform Shield (deformable shield), Sparrow (bow), and Tempest (electrical bolt rifle).
The beloved perk system also makes a return, with the ability to equip three at any time. On top of that, you can have five loadouts saved at once. Versatility!
Fans of previous Call of Duty single player games will have six familiar faces to choose from prior to jumping into a match. Here's the full list along with the game they first appeared in:
You can customise each of their apparel, so if you're not too fond of their traditional garb then feel free to make them a fashion icon. Kind of.
