Call of Duty Mobile (CODM) is a popular first-person shooter game that brings the thrilling Call of Duty experience to your mobile device. These tips from Carry1st’s Tribe members Dami Koya and pro gamer Vinuxa will help you start and improve your skills to become a top player.

Downloading Call of Duty: Mobile

  • Open the Google Play Store (for Android) or the Apple App Store (for iOS) on your device.
  • Search for "Call of Duty Mobile" in the search bar.
  • Tap "Install" to download and install the CODM game on your mobile device.
  • Once installed, tap the Call of Duty Mobile icon to launch the game.

Setting Up Your CODM Account

  • When you launch the game, you must start an account or log in with an existing one.
  • You could sign in using Facebook, Google, or as a guest.
  • Your social media profile should be linked to your account, allowing you to save your in-game progress and access your account across multiple mobile devices.

Understanding the CODM Game Modes

  • Take part in fast-paced, team-based matches with objectives like Team Deathmatch, Domination, and Search & Destroy with Multiplayer Mode.
  • Drop into a large map with up to 100 players. Next, look for weapons and gear to shoot your way to be the last player still standing in Battle Royal Mode.
  • Compete in ranked matches to climb the leaderboard and earn rewards with Ranked Matches.

Learning the CODM Controls

  • Familiarise yourself with the on-screen controls: the virtual joystick for movement and buttons for aiming, shooting, crouching, jumping, and using items. It could help to customise your controls layout or heads-up display (HUD).
  • Customise the control layout in the settings menu to suit your preferences. Also, adjust your sensitivity and find the one that suits you perfectly. It plays a big role in your reaction time and aim.
  • Spend time in the training mode to get a feel for the controls with Practice in Training Mode.
  • Watch pro players or tips and tricks on YouTube to help adjust your HUD if you need tips. Also, reach out to gamers in the Tribe community.

Choosing Your CODM Loadout

  • Equip perks that complement your playstyle. For beginners, perks like Lightweight (for faster movement) and Ghost (to stay off enemy radar) are useful.
  • Try different weapons to find which suits you best. Assault rifles are versatile, while SMGs are great for close combat.
  • Use attachments to improve weapon performance. Attachments like scopes, grips, and extended magazines can be game-changers 

Understanding CODM Maps and Modes

  • Learn the layout of each map to know key locations, chokepoints, and sniper spots.
  • Keep an eye on the mini-map to track enemy movements and objectives.
  • Change your strategy based on the game mode and map. For example, play more aggressively in Team Deathmatch and strategically in Search & Destroy.

Develop a CODM Game Sense

  • Pay attention to in-game sounds, such as footsteps and gunfire, to anticipate enemy positions.
  • Constantly scan your surroundings and avoid tunnel vision.
  • Avoid staying in one spot for too long. Constant movement makes you a harder target.
  • Always move from cover to cover to minimise exposure to enemy fire.
  • Consistency is key. Regularly playing the game will improve your reflexes and understanding of game mechanics. Review your matches to identify areas for improvement.

Playing CODM Battle Royale

  • At the start of each Battle Royale match, you will be flown over the map in a plane.
  • Choose your landing spot wisely to avoid early confrontations and gather good loot.
  • Scavenge for weapons, armour, and other gear to prepare for facing other players in shootouts.
  • It would be best if you stayed in the safe zone to avoid the damaging blue zone.

Communication and Teamwork

  • Use voice chat or quick chat options to communicate with your teammates.
  • Coordinate with your team, share information about enemy locations, and plan your strategies together.
  • Play roles that complement your team. Sometimes, it’s better to support your teammates rather than going for kills. Stick with your team, provide cover, and revive teammates when needed.

Improving Your CODM Skills

  • Practice regularly to improve your aiming, movement, and tactical skills.
  • Watch tutorials, guides, and gameplay videos from experienced players to learn new strategies and techniques.
  • Take part in events and challenges to get rewards and enhance your gameplay experience.

Managing CODM's In-Game Currency

  • Earn in-game currency, COD Points, through gameplay and use them to purchase new weapons, skins, and other items. You can also enhance your experience by buying COD Points with Carry1st Shop
  • Take part in daily and weekly missions to earn extra rewards.

  • Follow Call of Duty Mobile on social media and join communities to stay informed about events, updates, and tips.
