Minimum requirements and supported devices
Before getting to the heart of this guide and explaining how to play Call of Duty Mobile , it might be useful to know what are the minimum requirements necessary for the game to work and which devices are supported by the latter.
First of all, you need to know that Call of Duty Mobile is a spin-off of Call of Duty, the famous first person shooter game among the best sellers in the world. It is a free-to-play version (with the possibility of making purchases in the app) designed exclusively for mobile devices which, for the first time ever, allows you to play the famous video game from smartphones and tablets.
That said, Call of Duty Mobile is available as a free app for Android devices equipped with Android 4.3 or later and iPhone / iPad with iOS 9 or later.
How to download Call of Duty Mobile
All you have to do to download Call of Duty Mobile , available for free for Android and iOS / iPadOS , is to go to your device’s store, search for the game in question and start the download.
If you have a smartphone or tablet equipped with Android , start the Play Store by pressing its icon (the colored ▶ ︎ symbol), type ” Call of Duty Mobile ” in the Search apps and games field at the top and tap the Search button .
Now, locate the app in question in the search results (it should be the first result), press the Call of Duty Mobile icon and tap the Install button to start the download and installation of the game. Wait, then, for the progress bar to reach 100% and, once the download is complete, press the Open button to start the app and start playing.
If, on the other hand, you have an iPhone / iPad , start the App Store by pressing on its icon (the white “A” on a blue background ) on the home screen of your device and tap on the Search item , located in the bottom menu.
In the new screen displayed, click on the Games, apps, stores and much more option visible under the Search option , type ” Call of Duty Mobile ” in the search field and tap the Search button to view the search results.
Then press on the app in question and tap the Get button to start the download and installation of the game. You may be asked to verify your identity using Face ID, Touch ID, or entering your Apple ID password.
How to start playing Call of Duty Mobile
- Guest: Log in without creating an account and save game progress on your device. By choosing this mode, game progress will be lost in the event of a problem.
- Facebook: Allows you to log into Call of Duty Mobile using your Facebook account. By choosing this option, you can also access your account from other devices, without losing your game progress.
If you have chosen to log in using your Facebook account , press the Continue button , enter your account data in the Mobile number or email address and Facebook password fields and tap the Log in button , then choose the Continue as option [name ] , to allow Call of Duty Mobile to access your Facebook information (name, profile picture and friends list) and that’s it.
Now, regardless of which login mode you choose, create your character via the Create Character screen . Then choose your avatar , by pressing on the image visible above the word Touch to change , enter the name to use in the game, in the field Maximum 14 characters , and press the OK button . If you are logged in with Facebook, you will see your photo as an avatar and your name in the nickname field.
With that done, you are ready to start playing Call of Duty Mobile. First, click on the Continue button to take part in the training and learn the basic controls of the game. Then follow the instructions shown on the screen and try to put them into practice, to learn how to move, shoot, aim and kill enemies. At any time, you can stop training by pressing the Skip button located at the top right.
After completing the training camp, tap the Continue button to receive 100 Credits , which you can use to purchase your first weapon in the in-game store. Then press the Shop button located at the bottom left, select the M4 option (the only weapon you can initially buy) and tap the Buy button .
It will be useful to know that Credits are useful for purchasing most of the items available in the Call of Duty Mobile store, such as weapons, accessories, grenades, etc. You can earn Credits by redeeming daily bonuses, watching in-game advertising videos, completing daily and weekly activities, participating in limited-time events, and removing any unwanted items from your inventory.
Additionally, COD Points are also available , allowing you to purchase rare weapons and exclusive skins. Unlike Credits, to have COD Points it is necessary to put your wallet and choose one of the available packages: 80 CP (1.09 euros) , 400 CP (5.49 euros) , 800 CP (10.99 euros) , 2,000 CP (€ 27.99) etc.
After choosing the weapons and accessories of your interest from the Call of Duty Mobile shop, select the Equipment item at the bottom to choose the skin to use and the weapons available during the battle. Once this is done, you are ready to play multiplayer by choosing one of the available game modes.
- Frontline: For a quick battle between two teams of 5 players each.
- Team DM: 10 players divided into two teams face off in a challenge in which the goal is to reach the established score limit.
- Domination: the aim is to defend targets from enemy attack and earn points over time. The teams consist of 5 players each and the first team to reach the established score wins.
- Search and Destroy: The goal is to locate and destroy the target of the enemies and prevent the opponents from doing the same.
- Training against AI: useful to hone the skills of your character, fighting against computer-controlled opponents.
In addition to the classic multiplayer mode, you can also choose the Battle Royale option (available from level 7) in which as many as 100 players are parachuted onto a large island without equipment. The objective of the Battle Royale is to try to survive by collecting the weapons available in the area and killing not only the opponents but also other characters, such as zombies.
In this game mode it is possible not only to choose whether to play with a first or third person view, but also to select whether to act alone or in teams of 2 or 4 players. In addition, it is also possible to choose the type of player to use among Scout , Medic , Defender , Clown , Ninja and Mechanic .
Once you have chosen the game mode you prefer, press the Start button to start playing, earn new credits, accumulate experience points and level up.
Finally, you must know that, by pressing the gear wheel icon (at the top), you can access the title Settings and customize your gaming experience, by acting in the Basic , Audio and graphics , Sensitivity , BR Settings and Quick Messages sections .
Furthermore, in the Controls section , you can choose whether to use the Simple Mode , which allows you to fire automatically after targeting an enemy (recommended option for novice players), or whether to use the Advanced Mode which, instead, involves pressing the special button to shoot.
How to play Call of Duty Mobile with controller
If your intention is to play Call of Duty Mobile with controllers , you should know that Activision, the developer of the game, has suspended official support for controllers in order not to disadvantage players who use touch controls. Despite this, the company has not ruled out that this feature may be introduced in the future, also revealing that tests are underway to evaluate this game mode.
So if you are still wondering how to play Call of Duty Mobile with PS4 controllers , I am sorry to tell you that it is not possible and the only game mode available to you are the touch controls.
If you really can’t help but use a controller to play Call of Duty Mobile, you can consider purchasing special supports to apply to your smartphone and which allow you to move your character via an analog stick.
How to play Call of Duty Mobile on PC and Mac
Would you like to play Call of Duty Mobile on PC ? If so, you can download and install an Android emulator on your computer . By doing this, you can start a game on a larger screen than a smartphone or tablet, and most importantly, play using the keyboard and mouse.
If you have a Windows PC , I recommend using Gameloop , an Android emulator with official support for Call of Duty Mobile. To download it to your computer, connect to the Gameloop official website and click the Download button to start the download.

If, on the other hand, you are wondering how to play Call of Duty Mobile on Mac , I am sorry to tell you that, at the time of writing this guide, it is not possible to do so. In fact, as mentioned above, Gameloop is only available for Windows PC, while Bluestacks (another Android emulator) has not yet been optimized for playing Call of Duty Mobile on Mac.
