PlayerUnknown’s Battleground or PUBG: Mobile for short is nothing short of a revolution in the world of mobile gaming in India. Never before has a gaming title basked in such renowned glory in the country and certainly not a mobile game. One can say that Tencent, the publisher of PUBG Mobile, has cracked the formula for a successful title in the country where eSports had not been of particular significance. PUBG Mobile vs Call of Duty Mobile: Chicken Dinners arent so enticing any more While in its PC avatar, PUBG has not been gaining wide attention in the country owing to relatively high hardware requirements, but on mobile, the game has exploded into life. In a span of a year we are seeing YouTubers with dedicated channels to PUBG Mobile, massive tournaments and more. Just when it seemed that the popularity of PUBG would just keep on skyrocketing, out of nowhere, Activision drops a bomb with the Call of Duty: Mobile game which brings the world-renowned franchise on the mobile platform. To be clear Call of Duty has been present on mobile phones before, but the extent of the gameplay has been limited to mostly single player. With the new Call of Duty: Mobile, Activision wants to induce a full-fledged console-like multiplayer experience on Android/iOS. Till now Activision has not announced any official release date for Call of Duty: Mobile, but the closed-beta has been available for some time now. I got to try it out and here are my thoughts on it in comparison with PUBG: Mobile. Game Modes The main reason why anyone would want to play Call of Duty (hence going to be named as COD for the rest of this piece) are the various multiplayer modes that it offers. The popular ones that have been used, and the ones which are surely going to be enjoyed the most, happen to be Deathmatch, Free-for-all, Domination, Frontline and Search and Destroy. The action is super fast paced, with not even time to draw breath as in each mode you get infinite respawns while you and your team try to get reach the score limit first. Apart from that if you are into increasing your rank and showing off to your friends, a separate Rank mode is also present wherein you can play all the above-mentioned game modes, with the only difference being that you are matched with players who are at a similar rank. As for game modes, players will have five classic ones to choose from, which they can play in casual matches, ranked matches, and private matches.

The closest one can get to getting fast-paced action is on War Mode, and even that forces you to annoyingly jump from the plane every time you die. While the main Classic mode Battle Royale is definitely, PUBG Mobile’s biggest attraction, it can turn slightly drawn out and there are also limited things you can do. The Battle Royale on COD, on the other hand, is basically COD Blackout brought down to the mobile platform. There are custom classes, helicopter rides, scorestreak perks, a smaller map, zombies, a giant bloodhound, more locations for engaging the enemy and more. It is a matter of preference, but I would really rate the Battle Royale on COD as a notch higher that PUBG. On a related side-note, Team Deathmatch is coming to PUBG Mobile soon, as will Zombies mode on COD.
