PUBG Mobile has for a long time ruled the mobile battle royale roost, so there has been the small issue of Fortnite. But PUBG’s real challenger comes in form of Activision’s latest, Call of Duty: Mobile.

Both these games are looking to draw on an element of realism to some degree while giving you a blend of intense combat, variety, and different gameplay modes, and massive multiplayer action. But what’s really different about these mobile games? Well, you are going to find out in this article if you continue reading.
CoD Mobile VS PUBG
Graphics: Unreal Engine 4 Vs Unity Engine
PUBG Mobile is powered by the Unreal Engine while CoD: Mobile runs on the Unity engine. But ultimately this doesn’t hugely matter, Unreal is often associated with photo-realistic visuals while it is said that it takes a lot more work to get Unity games to look as polished.
This is one of the differences you will immediately spot in these two games; graphically they have a very different character. PUBG Mobile appears to have a lot more fine details while Cod Mobile feels graphically dense with a lot crammed in but not quite the same level of clarity.
PUBG Mobile also feels like everything has a little more breathing space, there is a greater sense of open space while in CoD Mobile things seem a little more thickly plastered certainly in terms of the maps.
PUBG is a battle royale; it has been a genre-defining game with many looking to recreate the sort of multiplayer battles that it offers. With Tencent involved in both games, it is no supervised there are similarities especially around the controls which are similar both in layout and on-screen elements.
CoD: Mobile feels different because it opens with multiplayer instead, a 5 vs. 5 battle in smaller areas-crash, kill house, crossfire, Nuketown and hijacked and in a number of different modes-frontline, deathmatch, dominations and search and destroy.
It took PUBG a year or so to offer this type of multiplayer and CoD Mobile immediately feels more engaging and dynamic you can do more and it plays better with a range of different maps to play on.
While Cod feels like you are a Tier 1 operator, PUBG feels like you are a regular Joe and that defines the big difference between these two games.
Which is better?
PUBG Mobile has been on the scene for some time and Call of Duty: Mobile is certainly enjoying the hype of being new and shiny. Any PUBG Mobile player will instantly know how to play CoD Mobile because they are similar enough to just transfer your skills over.
But I have got to say that I think Call of Duty offers the better arcade experience, it just feels better for face-paced action sliding around, lunching hunter-kill drones, and getting up close to the enemy. It’s a blast and it’s something that we don’t think that PUBG does quite as well.
When it comes to battle royale I still think that PUBG looks better and the pace of the game feels very different, but that same logic applies from arcade modes if you are the sort of person who always jumps into Pochinki for the immediate fight then CoD Mobile might suit you well enough.
And if you are the sort of PUBG player who likes to avoid contact and use stealth to get to the last 10 players before picking off your remaining rivals, you might not find that in Call of Duty.
