Call of Duty: Mobile 1.0.1 Beta: Everything You Need to Know

Monday, 20 May, 2019

Expect very granular settings and loadout options in Call of Duty: Mobile.

The Call of Duty Mobile release date starts this week, but not in the U.S. With the release of Android Nougat and Vulkan ... Most of these are pretty traditional multiplayer modes, with Free-For-All, Frontline, Team Deathmatch, Hardpoint, and Domination all being confirmed today.

Other classics like dropping out of a plane in an open world are also expected to be a part of the game. It can be updated in the future with PC game modes like Search & Destroy and Kill Confirmed modes. In the beta release of Call of Duty seven maps are available: Mobile, including Nuketown, Crash, Hijacked, Crossfire, Sandoff, Killhouse, and Firing Range. Call of Duty: Mobile seems to tick all the boxes that have made other battle royale games so popular while having the advantage of being extremely well-known in the community.

Finally, Activision divulged plenty of information about Call of Duty: Mobile's settings and loadouts.

Additionally, players will be able to get grenades and weapon skills.

There is also a "Simple" or "Advanced" control scheme, with the former simplifying the controls, while the latter keeps things as tied and in line with controller controls as possible. Simple Mode "allows automatic fire when your crosshair focuses on an enemy", and while that sounds useful for a mobile FPS like this, it also comes with a cost as you'll eat through your ammo quickly.

You will also be able to pick your own character - many of which will be familiar to long-time CoD fans. The maps will be straight from previous Black Ops and Modern Warfare games. Players may question the fairness of this, but it also means that ammunition will run out quickly and accuracy will be subpar at best.

Till now, the mobile has become a huge hit, seeing over ten thousand downloads on Google Play Store after being launched yesterday (May 16, 2019).

Activision says that they are, "working every day both to optimize the game for high-end phones and to make it broadly accessible for as many other devices as well".

As you've probably heard before, with Call of Duty: Mobile, you will get and unlock many iconic characters, outfits, weapons, certain pieces of gear and scorestreaks. The first closed beta test started this week in India, to be followed soon by a regional beta test in Australia.
