What Is Call of Duty Mobile?

This game is a part of the franchise released for Android and iOS devices. It brings well-known and loved weapons, characters, maps, and modes into a much more portable package. Those who have played previous games will find a sense of familiarity with CODM.

The main thing about CODM is it offers multiplayer game modes such as Team Deathmatch, Search and Destroy, Frontline, Free for All, and Sniper Battle just to name a few. However, it also added a popular mode in the form of Battle Royale.


The BR mode comes in two types: Classic and Alcatraz. While the Classic mode is what is a more prevalent type with a 20- to 25-minute game time composed of 100 players, Alcatraz is made up of around 40 people and a shorter game time.

What Makes CODM Special?

For some, Call of Duty Mobile is merely a mobile version of the big games with the addition of BR. However, this game is notable because it is not only a mobile version but also an excellent one. 

First, it is such a small package at around 5 gigabytes, compared to the 170-gigabyte size of COD Warzone, the franchise’s Battle Royale offering for PS4 and PC. Still, it is able to offer optimized mobile versions of console and PC game modes.


While some think that controlling CODM is limited to touchscreen, players can also use manual controllers to similar four- or six-finger touchscreen play styles. Plus, the game also supports the use of Dualshock controllers for PS4 and official Xbox One controllers

What Are COD Points? 

One of the main things about CODM is it uses two types of currencies: Credits and COD Points (CP). The first is also used in Advanced’ Warfare’s Exo Zombies mode. 

The second is used in many games such as Black Ops, Online, Infinite Warfare, and Modern Warfare, as well.

Credits are the more accessible currency in the game and it can easily be earned as gamers play. On the other hand, CPs are the premium in-game cash and can be difficult to get. Take note that there are a variety of ways to get CP but it can be based on luck. 

With Credits and CPs, users can visit the Store and purchase various items, allowing them to improve their characters’ appearance, as well as their play styles.

What to Purchase Using COD Points?

As the premium currency, CPs let players purchase the finest items in the Store. These are unique items from Epic and Legendary tiers, from weapons and skills to characters and skins. These items are considered unique because free ones are more commonly seen in the game.

Aside from items, players can also purchase Crates. When opened, these boxes can give different items, from Credits and Common, Uncommon, and Rare tier items to Rare, Epic, and Legendary ones. 

Take note that these require luck as players can get the same items more than once, but when this happens, they are given free Credits. 

How Players Get COD Points

Because the weapon and character skins, as well as the skills and weapons, are unique, premium items give players a much more superior look, abilities, and styles. So, many players want to get CPs in order to access these items.

The easiest way to get CPs is to purchase them using real money. These are priced differently for a bunch of CPs, depending on the number of Points bought. Users can get 80 CPs for around a dollar or 8000 CPs plus 2800 free for more.

Another way to get CPs is to purchase a Battle Pass, which offers various rewards including Points. The number of Points earned depends on the player’s climb up the Tiers. There are two types of Battle Pass namely the regular Battle Pass and Battle Pass Bundle.

What Are Skins?

Skins are appearance modifications for weapons, characters, vehicles, and skills. The thing about CODM is it releases unique skin sets for every Rank Series such as Winterwood, Royal Flush, Undead Crusade, and Skulls and Blood.

These do not offer additional skills or statistics to characters and weapons. However, weapons with high rarity skins have additional attachments that can help users better modify each weapon

Character and vehicle skins are simply for aesthetic purposes. However, rare looks can be intimidating for many opponents, and seeing unique skins can tell other users that the player is serious with the game and is skilled. 

How Players Get Skins

The easiest to get skins is to purchase them from the Store. There are ones that can be bought using Credits, while others can be obtained using CPs. Players also get the chance to get skins when they purchase and open Crates.

Play Multiplayer More Frequently
