Preliminary information

Before going into the details of the procedure on how to play COD Mobile on PC , I think it might interest you to know more about this possibility.

Well, you should know that Call Of Duty Mobile is developed by Tencent Games , a Chinese company that has already made titles of the caliber of PUBG Mobile in the past . This company also provides an official Android launcher / emulator for PC, which allows you to play all its titles, including COD Mobile, without any kind of problem. It is not even necessary to have a computer that is too powerful to use it, given the minimum requirements required.

  • Operating system:Windows XP or higher;
  • Processor:dual-core 1.8 GHz Intel / AMD;
  • RAM:2GB;

  • Operating system:Windows 7 or higher;
  • Processor:Intel Core i5, AMD equivalent or higher;
  • RAM:8GB or higher;
  • Video card:dedicated AMD / NVIDIA.

In short, Tencent Games indicates quite generic requirements and, in general, Call of Duty Mobile supports well even the less powerful configurations, being a game designed for smartphones and tablets.

How to use COD Mobile on PC

Now that you know all the details about being able to play COD Mobile on PC, I’d say you’re ready to take action. Below you will find all the relevant information.

How to download COD Mobile on PC

How do you say? Can’t wait any longer and want to start downloading COD Mobile? I’ll explain how to do it right away.

All you have to do to download COD Mobile on your PC is to go to the official website of the game and press the blue Download button . In this way, you will download the launcher on your computer that will allow you to get the game.

How to install COD Mobile on PC

After downloading the program, I would say that you are ready to proceed with the installation. Then open the gamedownload_ [version] .exe file obtained, click on Yes and click on the green Install button . Once the installation process is finished, click on the Start button , to start the launcher and add its icon to the desktop.

At this point, press on the Game Center item on the left of the window opened, type ” call of duty ” in the search bar at the top, press Enter and press the game box . Now, click on the INSTALL button located on the right, in order to start the download and installation of the game.

Perfect, now you just have to press on the My Games item on the left to check the download status . Once the latter is finished, you will have to wait for the launcher to complete the installation of the game and then simply press the Play Now button to start it.

At the first start of the game, in addition to the visual quality settings supported by your computer, the launcher will explain all the appropriate commands , which in reality are essentially the ones that are used in every shooter title.

The character can be moved using the WASD keys , to aim using the right mouse button , while to shoot just left click . You jump with the space bar , while to crouch you have to press the C button on the keyboard.

Shift is used to run , while to use weapons and other objects you have to use the numeric buttons from 1 to 9 on the keyboard. Finally, to open the doors and interact in general with the elements of the game, the F key must be used . The reload button is R instead  . In any case, I can assure you that you will not have any problems from this point of view, as the game will show you the commands during the games.

In case you want to change the commands, you can press on the keyboard icon on the right of the launcher while you are playing Call of Duty Mobile. In this way, all the keys assigned to the various functions will appear on the screen and simply press on the blue squares to change the buttons.

Remember to press the Save button , present at the bottom right, once you have finished making changes, in order to save them and make them effective.

For the rest, you can put the game in full screen by pressing on the arrows icon located to the right of the launcher. There is also the possibility of capturing screenshots (by clicking on the window icon with the + ) and recording videos (by pressing on the registration ball icon ).

In any case, clearly users who play COD Mobile on PC using mouse and keyboard are put into separate games from those who use touch controls on mobile. The developers have decided to put this division in place so as not to give too many advantages to PC gamers.

How to play COD Mobile on PC with controller

The Tencent Games launcher also supports controllers and so you can use this input method to play COD Mobile.

It is unclear which pads the emulator supports, but I was able to test an Xbox-like controller  and everything worked fine. I just had to connect the pad to the PC and the program recognized it automatically.

However, you must manually configure the controller keys , correctly assigning each touch button to a physical one. To do this, you must press on the keyboard icon located to the right of the launcher while you are playing COD Mobile and select the Gamepad item .

At this point, all you have to do is press on a part of the screen and associate the relevant button on the controller. In this way, pressing that key will simulate a press , just as if you were touching the touch screen.

As you may have guessed, you must therefore put yourself at a good pace and position the keys correctly to play. Don’t forget to check the Direction (Left Joystick) and Camera (Right Joystick) boxes and to correctly position the virtual stick for movement and the one to rotate the camera on the screen.

You can get an idea of ​​where to place the various keys by pressing on the Keyboard item and trying to copy what the developers did for the mouse and keyboard. Remember to click on Save to save the changes.

I was able to find a more or less working key combination for my controller, but clearly each pad has different characteristics. In any case, as you may have already guessed, this is a rather difficult feature to use, since Call of Duty Mobile is not designed to be used natively via a controller on a PC.

This means that you may not be able to correctly assign all keys and therefore perform certain actions (eg change weapons) during games. Also, during my tests I encountered problems in being able to move the view quickly. In general, you can play, but you are very limited and it is certainly much better to use a mouse and keyboard : an input method that guarantees results of a completely different caliber in terms of user experience.

That said, since you are interested in the title of Tencent Games, I invite you to consult my tutorial on how to play Call Of Duty Mobile , where you will find more information about it.
