First, you need to know that Call of Duty Mobile is a spin-off of Call of Duty, the best-selling first-person shooter game in the world. It is a free-to-play version (with the possibility of making purchases in the app) designed exclusively for mobile devices which, for the first time ever, allows you to play the famous video game on smartphones and tablets.
That said, Call of Duty Mobile is available as a free application for Android devices equipped with Android 4.3 or later and iPhone / iPad with iOS 9 or later.

In the new screen that appears, press on the Games, app, store and much more option visible under the Search option , type ” Call of Duty Mobile ” in the search field and tap the Search button , to view the search results.

Now, regardless of the chosen access mode, create your character via the Create Character screen . Then choose your avatar by pressing on the image visible above the word Touch to change , enter the name to be used in the game, in the field Maximum 14 characters , and press the OK button .

Once the training field is complete, tap on the Continue button , to receive 100 Credits , which you can use to purchase your first weapon in the game shop. Press, then, on the Shop button located at the bottom left, select the M4 option (the only weapon you can initially buy) and tap the Buy button .
It will be useful to know that the Credits are useful for purchasing most of the objects available in the Call of Duty Mobile shop, such as weapons, accessories, grenades etc. You can earn Credits by redeeming daily bonuses, watching video advertisements within the game, completing daily and weekly activities, participating in limited-time events and removing any unwanted items from the inventory.
In addition, COD Points are also available , which allow you to purchase rare weapons and exclusive skins. Unlike Credits, to have COD Points it is necessary to get hold of the wallet and choose one of the available packages: 80 CP (1.09 euro) , 400 CP (5.49 euro) , 800 CP (10.99 euro) , 2,000 CP (€ 27.99) etc.

- Dominion : the aim is to defend the objectives from the attack of the enemies and to earn points with the passage of time. The teams are made up of 5 players each and the first team to reach the established score wins.
- Seek and Destroy : The goal is to locate and destroy the target of enemies and prevent opponents from doing the same.
- Training against AI : useful for honing your character’s skills, fighting against computer-controlled opponents.
In addition to the classic multiplayer mode, you can also choose the Battle Royale option (available from level 7) in which 100 players are parachuted onto a large island without equipment. The goal of Battle Royale is to try to survive, collecting the weapons available in the area and killing not only opponents but also other characters, such as zombies.
In this game mode it is possible not only to choose whether to play in first or third person view, but also to select whether to act alone or in teams of 2 or 4 players. In addition, it is also possible to choose the type of player to use from Scout , Doctor , Defender , Clown , Ninja and Mechanic .
