What is COD Mobile Battle Royale and How Do I Play It?

Call of Duty Mobile Battle Royale is a game mode within Call of Duty Mobile. It is Call of Duty’s first mobile-only battle royale mode. This guide goes in-depth into the Battle Royale mode of COD Mobile. 

The theme follows the same pattern as all Battle Royales. Players jump from an airship into a map with nothing but a knife. They must scavenge the area they land in looking for weapons and equipment. They then must take out all the other players to be the last alive to win. 

However, players cannot camp in one area and wait for enemies to come to them. The gameplay is kept moving by an ever-shrinking circle. At timed intervals, the circle will begin to close and players must get to the safe zone or risk losing damage or even dying in the danger zone.

Platform Availability 

Call of Duty Mobile is available to play on Android and iOS devices. However, not all phones will run this game. The specifications for Android devices are 2GB ram and Android 5.1 and up. You can check your Androids specs by going to the settings and checking your system information.

For iOS users, you need to be running at least iOS 9 or later. Again you can check this in your system settings. 

You can also play COD Mobile on PC. If you want to play the game on PC using an emulator check out our step by step guide here.

Battle Royale Challenges

Players are given new challenges to complete every week. Each challenge completed rewards the player with COD points and Supply Drops. Challenges such as play 10 games of Battle Royale, play using 2 perks in Battle Royale and win 2 games, etc.

Game Modes

There are numerous ways you can play the Battle Royale Game Mode. Check out the low down on all the ways below.


In Singles mode you jump into a game alone. Only you and your wits on your side. 


Doubles allows you to play with a friend or a randomer if you have none. When you enter a Doubles game alone you will be thrown into a lobby matched with a random player. 


This game mode is great for groups of friends that like to team up. A maximum of 4 players can be in a squad together. Similar to doubles, if you enter a squads game alone you will be matched with 3 other randoms.


FPP is an acronym for First-Person Perspective. This means you will see the world from the first person. The same as the view in Call of Duty Multiplayer mode.


Third Person Perspective means you will play the game with the camera a little bit behind your in-game character. Some people prefer this way. 

Note: You can change your camera view after the match has begun.


You also have the ability to play Battle Royale in a private lobby. Here you can set how many players are in the match and you can invite friends to join. It also gives you the option to choose which map you would like to play on. Hinting at more maps to come in the future.

The Andrenaline shot is by far the best healing item in the game. It fully heals you and increases your max health to 150. It takes 8 seconds to use so make sure to find cover before using it.

COD Mobile Adrenaline

First Aid Kit

First Aid Kits are great to have handy. They restore 80 Health Points. However, they take 8 seconds to use so best to hide in a building or go prone before applying the first aid kit.

These are the worst of the healing items but still very useful to have if you have taken a few unwanted shots. They are quick and easy to use taking 4 seconds in total to apply.

COD Mobile Hemostatic

Lethal Equipment

Cluster Grenades

Cluster Grenades make their way over from Blackout. These little bad boys stick to where you throw them and explode into a cluster of smaller explosions.

Frag Grenades

Frags are your standard cookable grenade. Find an enemy and chuck a grenade at them. It’s as simple as that.

Tactical Equipment


Flashbangs are tactical that blind the enemy on detonation. They have been in Call of Duty since forever.

Nova Gas

Nova Gas makes a return from Black Ops 1. This yellow canister exploded on detonation and releases a toxic green gas that deals 13 damage points per second.

There are 2 types of currency in this game. COD Points and Credits. The Credit earning system is actually quite generous in COD Mobile. 

After a few days playing, you could probably buy the Season Pass with Credits earned instead of buying it with your own money.

After 4 days of playing the game every evening, we spent our Credits on the Premium Battle Pass. Essentially getting the Battle Pass for free. 

COD Points

COD Points are purchased with real money by using a credit/debit card. Players can then use the COD Points to purchase items in the store or the Battle Pass


Credits are earned through completing in-game challenges. Players can then spend the credits in the store. 

Battle Pass

The Battle Pass is an in-game purchasable product. Upon playing the game everyone has access to the free Battle Pass. 

Similar to Battle Passes from other Battle Royale games. It is an in-game progression system built on tiers. Every game you play and action performed in-game counts towards progressing up the ranks and unlocking new gear. 

There is a Premium Battle Pass and Premium PLUS Battle Pass available to purchase. The Premium Pass rewards better loot and the Premium PLUS rewards even better loot. The Premium Pass can be purchased for 640 credits and the Premium Plus pass costs 1360 credits.
