All of you have heard of the famous pc game “Call of duty”. Recently Activision has published it’s a mobile version which is “Call of duty: mobile”.It was released worldwide earlier this week for Android and iOS devices. There is a way to play Call of duty mobile on pc. It is a shooting game with various guns, maps, war machines and iconic players of the original Call of duty game. They have also added two modes:1.Battle of Royal & 2.Multiplayer.
The mobile version of this game has already reached 100 million downloads in just a week. So, a lot of people are thinking if there is a way to play COD: mobile in pc. Because, with a mouse, you can control better and can aim faster in the game which will help to kill your enemies quickly.
CoD: Mobile can be played on PC using the Tencent Game Buddy, which recently rebranded to Gameloop. Other emulators can also be used to play the game, but Gameloop has been known for providing a good experience when playing other mobile games on PC, such as PUBG Mobile.
To play Call of Duty: Mobile on PC, follow these steps:
- Download and install Gameloop. The download link for the setup can be found here. The setup size is just about 10 MBs.
- Launch Gameloop and navigate to the Game Center from the list at the left of the window. You’ll find yourself on a screen that looks like this:
- You’ll be able to spot Call of Duty: Mobile on the screen. If it isn’t there, use the search option at the top left of the window to search for the game.
- Click on the game and you should see an “Install” option in the bottom right.
- Clicking on the Install option will download (about 1.2 GBs) and install the game on your computer.
- Once this is done, head to the My Games tab from the list on the left of the window. Click on Play to launch the game.
The controls for the game will already be present in the emulator. Once the game is launched, you should be able to see the default controllers on the right of the window. Alternatively, you can set custom controls by clicking on the key mapping option on the right of the window.
Call of Duty: Mobile identifies that you’re playing using an emulator and puts you in a separate matchmaking lobby. In an Instagram post, the Garena version of the game revealed how this matchmaking works. If you play using an emulator, you’ll be put up against players who are also using an emulator. If you invite a friend who’s playing on mobile, then you’ll be matched against other teams who have both mobile and emulator players as well. While the global version hasn’t revealed how the matchmaking works, it’s highly likely that the same thing applies to it as well.
Playing COD: Mobile on a PC is a very strange experience. Visually it doesn’t look as good as previous games in the franchise. Which makes sense. This was developed for phones. But it looks a lot better than I expected and it ran at 60fps. (Most of the time.) The mix of maps from different games also made the experience of playing COD: Mobile on PC feel strange. Like I was playing some weird combination of multiple Call Of Duty games rebuilt in Unity.
But COD: Mobile played with a mouse feels sooooo much better than with touch controls. That seems obvious, but Tencent has done a great job making it feel great on mouse and keyboard. It doesn’t feel like I’m playing some weird hacked together port of a mobile game. Instead, I often forgot I was playing what is really a free-to-play Android game. Well, that is until it asked me a dozen times to buy credits and battle pass XP. Then it became clear that this was indeed a big, free-to-play shooter.
And to be clear, this is totally allowed. I’m not breaking any rules or cheating. This is an official way to play COD: Mobile on PC. It sometimes feels like cheating, however. You see, a mouse and keyboard are very accurate ways to control a game compared to a small touchscreen. So I would often dominate matches. Yes, the game has a lot of bots in its matches, but even when real players showed up I felt like I was doing much better than I usually do in Call Of Duty.
