(Pocket-lint) - Call of Duty Mobile offers a heady mix of action in both multiplayer and battle royale gameplay.

But if you're new to the game, there is a lot to do to get started and win games and improve your XP. Let's explore how to get the most out of Call of Duty: Mobile in our in-depth tips and tricks.

Set up Call of Duty Mobile and your phone

  • Call of Duty Mobile system requirements for iPhone: Requires iOS 9 or higher and works on phones with iPhone 5S or higher. works from iPad Air; works on iPod touch (6 Gen and 7 Gen)
  • Call of Duty Mobile system requirements for Android: Requires Android 5.1 or higher and your phone requires at least 2GB of RAM.

Prepare the device memory: The CoD: Mobile installation and game data will require around 1.6 GB of storage space, so you may need to clean up a bit. When you are at the limit, your phone will not perform as well and this is a challenging game.

To stop background activities and warnings: If you have a game mode on your device, now is the time to use that to reduce unwanted notifications and kill other processes that may be affecting your phone's performance. To get the most out of CoD: M, your phone needs to run as well as possible.

Use Facebook or Call of Duty account login: Unfortunately there is no username / password login. You must use Facebook, your Call of Duty activation account, or play as a guest. When you log in to Facebook, you can move your profile to another device if you want to get a new phone or, for example, play on a tablet, as is the case with an Activision account.

Pro tip: Occasionally there are incentives to use a different type of login. Perhaps you can get another character to connect to your Call of Duty account, which is what to look out for.

Connect your headphones: The Call of Duty: Mobile soundtrack is superb - and it helps you be better aware of what is going on around you. You can locate footsteps, listen for a silenced sniper rifle cough, and more if you can hear them clearly. Playing with headphones is a pro - or turn up the speakers if you have stereo speakers.

You need an internet connection: Yes, as this is a live multiplayer mode, there is no offline mode. You must be connected to play. Watch your amount of data or stick to Wi-Fi even though the game isn't using a lot of data.

Help, my gameplay is delayed !: If you seem to be freezing or moving across the same area repeatedly, it is likely because you are disconnected. Try turning Wi-Fi on or off, or restarting your router or phone to resolve the problem. Sometimes we switch to mobile data when Wi-Fi is playing.

Increase the brightness: What you see is what you pick up. The brighter the better. Turn off the automatic brightness, increase the levels and make sure that "night mode" or "blue light filter" is not activated as this will distort the graphics. If you have a game mode on your phone, turn it off to turn off autobrightness.

Connect your Xbox or PS4 controller controller: You can plug in a console controller to play games on your phone. They are paired with controllers when playing so you don't get an unfair advantage. First connect the controller to your device via bluetooth, then go to Settings> Controllers and you can see when the controller is connected and adjust the settings.

Call of Duty Mobile's best settings and controls

There are a plethora of settings and options for Call of Duty: Mobile, and the best depends a lot on how you enjoy playing and what phone or tablet you play on. It is worth taking the time to test all of the options.

Select the advanced mode: There are two simple and advanced control methods that are introduced to you at the beginning of the game. Auto fire is easy when you point at someone, but advanced gives you full control and the latter is your choice - even if it means a little more practice. You will never get anywhere with simple controls.

Customize your controls: In the lobby, tap the settings gear to open all of the settings for the game. In controls you have the option "Basic" and "Advanced" as above, in "Advanced" you have the button "Customize". Tap it and you can drag controls to new locations. Note that Multiplayer and Battle Royale have slightly different docks. So adjust both.

Activate the prone button to activate dropshotting: A recent change was the addition of the option to go straight to the prone position (lying down) instead of having to long press the squat button. The prone position is deactivated by default. However, if you turn them on, you can fall to the ground and keep fighting - a movement known as dropshotting. It's popular in PUBG and very common in COD: M since the addition of the new control option. The options are in Settings> Basic Controls> Hide Vulnerable Button.

Change the shooting mode: In the same area as above, you can use Advanced to change how different types of weapons are fired. You can shoot from the waist, aim downward (ADS), or choose custom. This allows you to change the behavior of weapon groups so that you can fire shotguns from the hip, for example (which is worth it).

Change the graphics quality: Your device will automatically detect the settings for your phone when it is started for the first time. However, if you want to change them, tap Audio & Graphics in Settings. Here you can choose the quality and frame rate, as well as other options. Play around for the smoothest gameplay you can as setting it too high will cause problems if it jerks. Here you will find the ultra mode (120 Hz). Be aware, however, that the graphics quality may be degraded in order to play at the fastest frame rate.

Adjusting the sensitivity: Different devices react slightly differently. Under Sensitivity, you can change the settings for your movement as well as the sensitivity of movement through areas using the phone's gyroscope. These can also be changed separately for multiplayer and battle royale - as well as single scope enlargements, as you may want higher sensitivity at lower zoom and lower sensitivity at higher zoom to keep them stable.

Test your settings with Practice vs AI: Go into multiplayer mode and tap the select button (just above the start) to choose the game type. Here you can see "Practice" and "Practice Against AI". This is a great way to test weapons, settings, and controls to see how they feel and if it will work for you.

Watch your friends play: You can watch what your friends are doing by going into your friends list and tapping the eye button - you can watch them play in real time.

Call of Duty: Mobile game modes

Call of Duty: Mobile is divided into two main sections. These are multiplayer and battle royale. Although the controls are largely similar and the graphics are identical, the game modes are fundamentally different. Zombie mode has been removed and is no longer available.

Multiplayer modes

There are different multiplayer maps and modes to play with. The core modes are Frontline, Team Deathmatch, Domination, Search & Destroy, Shootout, Confirmed Kill, Hardpoint, Free for All.

Then there are special modes - for example - Standoff - Halloween, Snipers Only, Gun Game, Prop Hunt. There are incentives to play all types. So keep an eye on the Battle Pass to see where to get rewards. The modes featured come and go and sometimes debut with a new card to play with. Our favorite is 10 versus 10 when it's available as it's non-stop slaughter.

The cards vary depending on the game type and adapt to the type of game you want to play: Killhouse, Nuketown, Hijacked, Cage, Rust, Gulag, Versand 1944, Reclaim, Scrapyard, Oasis, Highrise, Crash, Summit, Crossfire, Standoff, Terminal , Shooting Range, Hackney Yard, Launch, Raid, Meltdown. The first 10 are pretty small, the second 11 are bigger and change the style of play.

Some cards come and go, others are assigned to specific game modes so you won't always have access to all cards.

There are also ranked multiplayer matches that circulate between game modes and maps.

Battle Royale modes

There are two maps in Battle Royale - Isolated and Alcatraz - and you can play in first or third person perspective, you can play solo, duo, or team.

In Battle Royale you basically don't jump in with anything, collect weapons with the aim of being the last player or team to survive. The play area gradually decreases, squeezing surviving players into a tighter area. It's a classic battle royale.

The game sometimes has additional modes - Sniper Challenge, which is just sniper rifles and Warfare, where 20 teams play on opposing sides for a variation on BR gameplay, but these come and go.

Master the Battle Pass and Reward System

While it's okay to play the game and have fun, there is a huge reward system in Call of Duty: Mobile. It does this in the form of events and the Battle Pass. There is a paid and a free path, both of which follow the same timeline. Those who pay get access to more characters, skins, and CP (in-game currency), but those on the free path still get a lot of stuff.

Accelerate your Battle Pass progress: You essentially move forward on the Battle Pass by playing the game and earning Battle Pass XP. However, attending the events will accelerate you on your way and help you get to the higher levels faster. More and better rewards will be unlocked.

Watch the events: The event system adds variety to the game. While you can just play TDM all the time if you choose to, the events add variety and add a number of quests to your rewards and Battle Pass progression. This includes credits, weapon XP, Battle Pass XP, boxes, and sometimes new weapons, characters, and skins. See what's listed in the seasonal or featured events and you will find things like "Kill 30 enemies with AGR 556 equipped with any 5 attachments". This basically walks you through the process, earns the rewards, and gives you the chance to play all of the new features in the game.

Use gunsmiths to upgrade your weapons

Gunsmith is a new addition to Call of Duty: Mobile that allows you to customize your weapons with a variety of attachments and skins. You will have to unlock a lot of options by playing with these weapons - or using weapon XP cards to level up this weapon.

Gunsmiths can be found in the Unloading section. To complete some events you will have to use Gunsmiths to make sure you have the right number of attachments on the right weapon to move forward. Just tap the Gunsmith button and you'll enter the area. We've written a comprehensive gunsmith's guide here if you'd like more details.

Send XP to friends: Friends have a number of uses in COD: M, and one is to get more Gun XP cards. You can send XP to your friends in the game and get Gun XP back. It's a simple daily quest that gives you more cards so you can do more in Gunsmith.

Watch the gun stats: The changes you make are not only for the fun of the weapon, but also the properties of the weapon. It can be accuracy, damage, or mobility. The values ​​are displayed up (green) or down (red) to indicate what changes you will be making to that weapon. This allows you to customize the weapons to suit your play style - for example, increase mobility if you want to play fast and close, or increase damage and range if you are a ranged fighter.

Watch out for perks: perks can can easily be ignored as not all of them have a direct impact on weapon properties. However, you can, for example, speed up the magazine change or increase the damage of a weapon. One of the most powerful perks is Akimbo, which allows you to carry two Fennec SMGs - but that has to be earned and unlocked.

Tips and tricks for multiplayer

There are plenty of weapons in Call of Duty: Mobile. You can collect and upgrade these weapons, apply skins, and choose your loadouts for multiplayer games.

Increase your XP to unlock more loadouts: As you play, earn XP to rank higher - and unlock additional loadout slots. You can have five different loads with primary and secondary weapons, grenades, an operator skill, and three perks, which means you can choose a different load for different cards.

Choose your weapons wisely: The load you carry determines what you come into play with - and that changes depending on the card and game type you are playing. Maps like Killhouse, Hijacked, and Nuketown are great for SMGs because they're hand-to-hand combat. A map like Crossfire is great for long range weapons. With 10 loadouts, you can adapt to the situation at hand during a game.

Upgrade your weapons: with You will receive rewards for weapon cards for upgrades. This can be anything from adding a scope to extending the barrel. The weapon properties table shows the impact of the changes you made - and it can make a huge difference in how that weapon performs in the game. That's what the gunsmith is all about.

You can't really hide in multiplayer: While you can stay out of sight or find a corner or building to lurk in, playing multiplayer will separate the two sides from the enemy wearing red lightning bolts on his uniform. Camouflage doesn't matter in this sense, as you can see the red markings even when hiding. You can be spotted by a UAV and placed on the map - so keep in mind that you are not invisible.

Moving stay: Because you can't hide, your enemy is to stay still. Keep moving so the enemy cannot attack you. One skill to master is to straighten sideways while keeping the enemy in your sights at the same time. If you run out of ammo, take cover and dive again to engage. It's an easy cover to use, but it works really well.

Use the slide: You can tap the down arrow while running to slide. This is unpredictable and gives you a much better chance of getting it for cover and avoiding getting shot.

Familiarize yourself with crouching: Squatting is very useful as it reduces your viewable area and still allows you to move around. There's even a perk to it - Skulker - which makes you faster when you crouch.

Use Sprint: Sprint means you can move faster. You can slide the forward slider up or tap the sprint button to do this. There's also an always sprint menu option - but use this with caution - this sometimes means you can't stop as precisely as you want and you may accidentally run into your enemy - but that's a great option when You use a shotgun - like you can sprint and spray.There is also an advantage that will make you go faster. Use it.

Top PS4 Games 2021: The Best PlayStation 4 and PS4 Pro Games Every Gamer Must Own by Rik Henderson

We have compiled a list of games worth adding to your library. There are also plenty of bargains to be found.

Go to your gun: The MW11 - or M1911 - is a great sidearm that can knock down people at close range just as quickly as a rifle. It is often quicker to switch to the pistol than to reload the primary weapon. It's great for maps like Nuketown when things get crazy in the middle. Avoid the silencer - it reduces range - but through Gunsmith you can increase the rate of fire and capacity to make it more effective.

Use your grenades: When the fighting gets tough, there is often no time to grab a grenade, but it's a great opening move: on maps like Killhouse and Nuketown, throwing the grenade from end to end is pretty easy and quick to wake up your enemy . Just make sure you don't come across your own grenade and that the opening immunity has expired.

Master the Sticky Grenade: The sticky grenade is great because it won't ricochet or roll. Throw it through a window, throw it against a wall and it stays there. It's great for clearing snipers out of rooms or clearing people hiding behind boxes.

Master the scorestreaks: The Scorestreaks are really powerful. You have to fill three slots and this can be anything from a hunter-killer drone to a VTOL gunship that is basically a game finisher. Some are AI controlled, others offer manual control. For example, the predator missile must be guided to where it is supposed to hit. The Guard Gun can be placed and left to knock down the enemy when they come around a corner - but can also be damaged by enemy fire. To activate Scorestreaks you will have to mix with the enemy and take some scalp.

Defeat enemy aircraft scorestreaks: The stealth chopper and VTOL can really damage your team, but you can shoot them down. Pick an LMG and unload it and you will shoot it down. Alternatively, if you have the Sparrow ability - with explosive arrows - a few hits from these planes will crash. Of course there is the FHJ-18, which includes and ends this scorestreak pretty quickly.

Take the fight to the enemy: Take the fight to the enemy in games like Frontline and Team Deathmatch. Hanging back can mean you're out of the game and doing nothing while your teammates are in combat. Find these strategic points on the maps and dominate them by holding onto your enemy.

Desire for smoke: Smoke grenades are actually very useful. If the enemy has you pinned down - obviously - but if there's a sniper in a building you can't get past, smoke the room by throwing the grenade through the window. Or drop smoke to protect yourself as you retreat from an invincible, resurfaced enemy. It's also very useful in domination when capturing a location - so the enemy can't see you.

Select the loadout for the card and the team: The multiplayer maps promote a number of different play styles. Crossfire, for example, has plenty of sniper spots, while Nuketown doesn't. Customize your loadout to suit the map and the team: if you have five players with sniper rifles in Nuketown, you may run into problems or just get bored. Be ready to switch to maximize team performance.

Top tip for hijacked: When you play on the hijacked card (the boat) there is a secret passage through the boat that will take you from one end to the other. This can get you behind the enemy so you can even increase the score. Just go into the cabin and look for the hole in the floor.

Battle Royale tips and tricks

Battle Royale feels like a completely different game in Call of Duty: Mobile. You can't start with your preferred loadout, you can't just reappear at will, and you have a much larger play area - and it's a much more tactical game than multiplayer combat. Even the user interface is slightly different, although the addition of Alcatraz provides a smaller game area that is more like multiplayer.

To FPV Switch: If you play a lot in multiplayer and are used to the first person view, you can switch to this view with one tap, rather than the third person view.

Choose carefully where you fall: The isolated map is pretty well loaded with both vehicles and weapons. However, if you fall into a built-up area, you are more likely to come into direct contact, where the first person to receive a gun will chase you all down. If you are a little further away, you are more likely to survive the first 10 minutes. Alcatraz has numerous highlights and there are often sniper rifles there so you can easily dominate.

Teamwork - or not: Teamwork makes the dream come true. Get separated from your team, move with your team, fight with your team and you will easily win. But if your teammates are determined to get in touch right away and die, you may want to go alone to survive. Battle Royale is about survival - if all you want to do is kill, play multiplayer instead.

Revive your teammates: There are resuscitation flights to get you back into the game, but it's better if you can be resuscitated by a teammate. Remember that a teammate who is in contact with the enemy will ignore you until it is clear. So don't just crawl right over to him. Come closer but be ready to wait to be resuscitated if you can. Dropping smoke can protect yourself while resuscitating someone.

Don't worry, you have a wingsuit: When you wear a wingsuit, it doesn't matter whether you jump from a helicopter or from the top of a tower to survive. Use this to your advantage. You can wear a wingsuit right over someone and pop them with your shotgun if you don't have the reach to reach from the top of a mountain. Thats fun.

Keep an eye on the map and look for footprints: To knowing where the enemy is is half the battle in battle royale. Watch the map for footprints if you're a boy scout, keep your ears peeled and you'll know where they are before they know you are there. It is the way to victory.

Hit the deck: Unlike multiplayer, where hitting the deck means dying in the dirt, Battle Royale lets you hide and wait for your enemy to be in range before attacking them. It really works.

Take care of your ammunition: There are many different guns out there, but you can flush your ammo very quickly. Keep track of how much you have, make sure you aren't picking up things you don't need, and make sure your second weapon is useful.
