Call Of Duty Mobile - First look at Activision's Call of Duty: Mobile's Battle Royale mode

Call of duty Mobile

Activision revealed on Tuesday the first glimpse into their own battle royale mode for the upcoming Call of Duty: Mobile game. Custom-built for mobile, featuring Call of Duty’s signature gameplay, with a lot of first-person shooter action,  and a big map with locations from throughout the Call of Duty universe.

It’s standalone from other Battle Royale experiences in Call of Duty. So, those familiar Call of Duty: Black Ops 4’s Blackout mode may find some familiarity, but ultimately this experience is unique to Call of Duty: Mobile.

In-depth details

  • Up to 100 total rivals on a large-scale, sprawling Battle Royale map.
  • Single, Two-person, or Four-person playlists are currently being playtested, so you can choose a match and play individually, as part of a pair, or as a team of four.
  • Choose from one of six initial classes, each with their own ability and skill.
  • The mode features similar rules to Call of Duty: Black Ops 4’s Blackout map; drop in from above, find weapons and gear, survive on the ground, and eliminate all to win.
  • Reviving teammates introduces a dog tag retrieval, with successfully-healed friends dropping in from a cargo plane once they are healed.
  • The game can be played in either a third or first-person perspective, which you decide on before the match begins.
  • The massive map features a wide variety of new territory to explore, as well over a dozen settings from the previous Call of Duty titles, including Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Call of Duty: Black Ops, and Call of Duty: Black Ops II.

When you first begin Battle Royale, you’re presented with a quick overview detailing the important game details, designed to get you into the action as quickly as possible, but with an overall understanding of the actions to undertake and the threats to face.

Prior to each match, you’re able to pick from a variety of Loadout elements, including the choice of your Class, camos, and skins.

Basic Actions

As a Battle Royale match occurs, six basic actions are to be undertaken -

  • Choose Class: Firstly, you pick the class you want to play as; each with an Ability and Class Skill designed to match your style of play.
  • Parachuting: Secondly, as the match begins, you and up to 100 other rivals utilize a wingsuit, dropping out of an aircraft and steering toward a favored part of the sprawling Battle Royale map, before pulling the ripcord and landing by parachute.
  • Searching: Next, the scavenging begins! Without equipment or armaments, you need to find items dotting about the map, usually in buildings or supply caches. When you’re tooled up sufficiently, it’s time to engage. Or hide.
  • Moving & Hiding: It’s usually recommended to push to a relatively safe area, encroaching on a building and positioning yourself out of view of any rivals. Then you can play an offensive or defensive game, depending on the variables of the match in question.
  • Revive Teammate: If you’re playing Duos or Quads, expect to dash to the aid of a fallen friend; reviving them if they’ve been neutralized by a foe; naturally you need to keep your wits about you so you aren’t tagged too.
  • Fight: Obviously, you’re spending the rest of the match battling for supremacy of the map, aiming to be the last person standing. Use all methods to stay alive until the end of the game.


Developers previously detailed the various control methods and how they translated to mobile devices. During Battle Royale, some additional control functionality unique to the mode is added. You can access the Backpack (allowing access to health, armor, and other equipment) as well as your class skill. Furthermore, you’re taught the more ubiquitous maneuvers, such as crouching and going prone, jumping and mantling over objects, and marking a position on the Battle Royale map. The straightforward access to these control elements further adds to the ease of movement during gameplay.


Choose a particular Class of character from the initial six on offer. Each class brings a set of particular talents to the combat zone -

  • Defender: With the ability to place a deformable Transform Shield, this class also is Reinforced, raising resistance to all damage except bullets.
  • Mechanic: Able to call an EMP Drone to create electromagnetic interference on hostile forces, this class also features the Engineer ability, granting augmented sight to vehicles, hostile traps, and other equipment.
  • Scout: Utilizing the Sensor Dart that can view hostile positions in the immediate area of the radar map, this class also benefits from the Tracker ability; allowing you to see fresh footprints of hostiles.
  • Clown: A master of distraction and friend of the undead, this class has a Toy Bomb to detonate, summoning zombies that only attack hostiles near to them; due in part to the Clown having the Anti-Zombie ability, which reduces the zombies’ aggression distance.
  • Medic: This class can place a Medical Station that continuously heals the Medic and associated allies in the immediate vicinity. In addition, the Master Healer ability allows a Medic to heal more quickly and reduces the time it takes to revive teammates.
  • Ninja: Lastly, this clandestine class has a Grapple Gun that fires a hook, allowing you to propel yourself up and onto target buildings or across the landscape at speed. Movement is quiet too, due to this class having the Dead Silence ability.

Single, Duo, or Team

There’s single-player (everyone for themselves!), two-person (teams of two), and quartets (teams of four). While you’re waiting on the map for the game to begin, you can make some last-minute changes (switching classes, for example), before deployment begins.

Falling into Chaos

As the 100 rivals start to descend from transport aircraft high above the battlefield, you’re able to time your drop, steering to a preferred area of the map using your wingsuit and parachute, hoping your teammates are in the vicinity and enemies are sparse until you’re tooled up with preferred weapons, and ready to fight. Then it’s a fight until you (or your team) are the only ones standing.

Upon landing, you initially need to scramble and loot the area for armaments, health kits, armor, ammo, weapon attachments, and avoid any roaming zombies as well as other rivals. The game auto-gathers the best equipment for you, but you’re still able to grab and utilize your preferred items easily. Doors are auto-opened when you step to them, and you can smash through windows and mantle using the jump button, climb ladders, and (if you have it) utilize the Grapple Hook, as you’d expect.

Expect intermittent supply crates dropped from above, as well as beacons marking the location of Class Upgrade items, augmenting your particular set of skills, with some only becoming accessible once the instructions on the cache are completed. This usually involves the clearing of the immediate area of zombies. Expect areas with high-value equipment to be swarming with foes en route to claim these advantages too, meaning forethought and planning is needed to ensure you’re not overrun by enemies, all intent on gathering these advantages for themselves.

The Vehicles

The map grants you access to four different controllable vehicle types -

  • ATV: A two-person quad-bike with speed but little protection.
  • Light Helicopter: With room for three including the pilot, allowing you to rain down fire from above.
  • SUV: An armored troop carrier with room for four, offering more ponderous mobility, but the extra protection compared to the ATV.
  • Tactical Raft: Take to the waters (including an ocean and rivers) in this fast boat, but watch for snipers.

As the game progresses, the circle collapses, forcing you to a smaller and smaller area of the map on a collision course with the enemy. As time and territory whittle down, it becomes increasingly important to know the terrain, and how to best utilize it in the remaining moments of a match.

Map Navigation

The map itself offers a large variety of topography to fight through, including all-new hills, mesas, settlements, rivers, and bridges, as well as a host of familiar locations from the previous Call of Duty titles dotted throughout the environment.
