“Call of Duty: Mobile” is a free-to-play game where players can get the action of an actual multiplayer game on a mobile platform.

“Call of Duty: Mobile” features 5v5 multiplayer gameplay on iconic Call of Duty maps like Nuketown, Firing Range and Hijacked.

TiMi Studios introduced something very exciting to the Call of Duty: Mobile community with a battle pass similar to Fortnite. This battle pass includes a variety of choices with camos for guns, vehicles, equipment, crates that include skins for characters similar to Fortnite and credits to purchase more for the “Call of Duty: Mobile” community.

Alongside the standard 5v5 gameplay, “Call of Duty: Mobile” also features a battle royal mode where up to 100 players are placed on a huge map to fight until there’s only one left standing.

Battle royale game mode also includes solos, where you battle by yourself to win, duos to fight with your lone teammate and squads, in which you could fight to win with up to four players.

Not only does “Call of Duty: Mobile” includes great access to multiplayer games such as a five vs. five online game mode, battle royale and zombies.

Shi No Numa has been the first playable map in zombies, known in previous games for its swampy setting, where players can fight the undead. Zombies will receive more maps as more season’s progress.
