Will Call of Duty Mobile Have Battle Royale? — To compete with PUBG Mobile and Fortnite Mobile Call of Duty needed to play the game right. Battle Royale games are trending since the release of PUBG. 100 players are thrown in an arena and the last man/team standing wins the round. Most Battle Royale games are played in Solo, Duo, and four-player coop. Video games like PUBG and Fortnite successfully used Battle Royale genre. Millions play these games and seeing the demand of this genre, even EA released a free to play Battle Royale game, Apex Legends. So, will Call of Duty Mobile feature a Battle Royale mode? Yes, it would be stupid not to. Activision’s Call of Duty Mobile features a Battle Royale mode.
Vehicles — Call of Duty Mobile Battle Royale mode is going to feature a big name where the players can drive four different vehicles types. It would be interesting to see how smartphones are able to handle 100 players and vehicles on the map. ATV is one of the vehicles in the game, it is a two-person bike with little armor. It can be used to beat the circle of death. We also have the light hellcopter which can accommodate three people. This is an indication that the game may not feature four-player coop, instead, we’ll have 3-players in each team.
Moving on, we have an SUV which is a slower working but heavily armored vehicles in the game. Last but not least, we have the tactical raft which is touted as a “fast boat” but be careful while using it, there are snipers all around.
