Best App Features
The control scheme of the game is fully customized for touchscreens, but some players are using a keyboard and mouse. The touchscreen controls are tuned to help casuals jump into the gameplay, but also feature manual settings for veterans. Activision is also working on controller support for the game.
The game's Battle Royal mode is the main appeal of this new release. It is directly competing with other mobile titles like Player Unknown's Battlegrounds. The mobile experience is unique and was built entirely for the mobile version. Solo, duos, and four-person team queues are available at launch.

Call of Duty - Monetization
Since the game is free-to-play, there are in-app purchases in Call of Duty Mobile. The game features loot boxes and a Battle Pass, which are standard in the main series. Several cosmetic items can be bought with in-game currency that can be earned or bought itself.
The monetization scheme in the mobile version pretty well matches what you can expect from console versions. If you're okay with forking over a few dollars for the Battle Pass, it's a fun game to play while on the go.
Should I download Call of Duty Mobile?
Hardcore fans of Call of Duty may be tempted to pass on an install of the game. But Activision and Tencent have actually created a fun first-person shooter for mobile. The familiar maps from the series are fun to revisit in new high-definition graphics. The many different unlocks available and path of progression for obtaining them make for a compelling experience.
There has been some controversy over whether or not the game includes bots. Some players say the game shouldn't at all, while others admit it makes specific modes more fun to play. Overall, Call of Duty Mobile is a satisfying first attempt at a mobile game in the franchise.
