Call of Duty: Mobile has become immensely popular since its release, and for those who want an advantage over their opponents, using a controller is key. Not every controller is supported, but we’ve got everything you need to know, including the best settings for your gamepad for CoD: Mobile.

It may seem like an odd prospect to play Call of Duty’s leading handheld game with a fully-fledged gaming controller, but the fact is that CoD: Mobile is an essential game for any fans of the series. It takes lots of aspects from previous CoD titles and blends them into one game.

It’s not just a condensed version of the current games like Black Ops Cold War and Warzone, but in many ways, it’s a more complete offering. So it makes sense that people want to capture that authentic Call of Duty experience by using a controller on a smartphone or tablet.

With CoD: Mobile Season 8 kicking off, introducing the M13 and R9-0 weapons along with the Blackout map, there’s never been a better time to use a controller and give yourself an advantage over your opponents.

How to play CoD: Mobile with a controller on Android, iPhone, or iPad

Connecting your controller your devices is easy, as all you need is to connect them via Bluetooth. This process is quick and painless, regardless of your phone or tablet’s operating system.

Android

  1. Pull down the Notification Shade from the top of your screen.
  2. Long press the Bluetooth symbol
  3. Select ‘Pair New Device.’
  4. Hold down the PS & Share button on your PlayStation controller, or the connect button on your Xbox controller.
  5. Once the controller LED starts flashing, select it from the list on your Android phone.
  6. Once connected in your settings, open CoD: Mobile and test your controller.

iPhone

  1. Open the Settings app on your phone, and select Bluetooth.
  2. Hold down the PS & Share button on your PlayStation controller, or the connect button on your Xbox controller.
  3. Once the controller LED starts flashing, select it on your iOS device under ‘Other Devices.’
  4. Once connected in your settings, open CoD: Mobile and test your controller.

Remember, your controller will only work when you’re actually playing a match, so don’t worry if it doesn’t seem to work in the game’s menus.

Best CoD: Mobile controller settings

Now you’ve connected your controller to CoD: Mobile, you’ll want to make sure you’re using the best settings. Unfortunately, there’s no way to match your settings with Warzone or Cold War’s, but there are plenty of settings you can tinker with to play CoD: Mobile at your best.

By going to the ‘Key Description’ tab, you can see all of the controls for CoD: Mobile’s different game modes, but you can customize them further.

Settings

  • Enable Controller Support: On
  • X-axis FLIP: Default
  • Y-axis FLIP: Default
  • Flip Triggers with Bumpers: Default
  • Tap ADS: Hold
  • Auto-Sprint: Off
  • Sprint Function: Push Left Joystick Forward

Multiplayer & Battle Royale Sensitivity

CoD: Mobile allows you to have separate sensitivity settings for multiplayer and battle royale, but we’d recommend keeping them consistent across the two.

  • Horizontal Sensitivity: 145
  • Vertical Sensitivity: 145
  • ADS & Non-Scope Horizontal Sensitivity: 100
  • ADS & Non-Scope Vertical Sensitivity: 100
  • Scope Horizontal Sensitivity: 95
  • Scope Vertical Sensitivity: 95
  • Sniper ADS Horizontal Sensitivity: 50
  • Sniper ADS Vertical Sensitivity: 54

Everyone will require different settings depending on the size of their screen and personal preferences, but these are a great place to start. Take these settings as a baseline, then keep adjusting them until you’re comfortable.

Which controllers are supported in CoD: Mobile

Unfortunately, not every controller is supported by CoD: Mobile, with only the Sony PlayStation Dualshock 4 and Xbox One controllers at the moment. It’s likely that the PS5 and Xbox Series X controllers will be added to this list in the future.

It is possible to use other Bluetooth controllers, but because they aren’t officially supported, they may run into functionality issues at some point in the future.

Does using a controller in CoD: Mobile get you banned?

Don’t worry, using a controller in CoD: Mobile definitely won’t get you banned! Gamepads are completely supported by the developer.

But be warned, the official CoD: Mobile does say: “Players will be matched with other players also using a controller. If you are playing with a party and one of your party members uses a controller, you will be matched with other players using controllers. If you are playing with the phone’s native controls, you will be matched with other players using the phone’s native controls.”

So it’s entirely possible for controller players to come up against handheld users!


Using a controller is a sure-fire way to improve your gameplay on CoD: Mobile, no matter if you use Android or iOS. Now that you have the best controller settings, make sure your inventory is up to scratch with our best CoD: Mobile Season 8 guns.

How to unlock KSP 45 in CoD Mobile Season 6

Black Ops Cold War’s powerful KSP 45 SMG arrives in Call of Duty Mobile Season 6, and here’s how to unlock it.

Published

on

Call of Duty: Mobile Season 6 is almost here, bringing the fan-favorite Modern Warfare 2 Favela map to multiplayer and the Jackal to battle royale. Of course, there’s a brand-new weapon, so here’s how to unlock Cold War’s KSP 45 in CoD Mobile.

CoD Mobile’s 2022 content isn’t showing any sign of slowing down, with Season 6 arriving on June 29, 2022. Amid rumors that Favela will arrive in Modern Warfare 2, the classic map will first arrive in CoD Mobile alongside the battle royale’s new Jackal vehicle.

This update also brings a powerful Black Ops Cold War SMG to CoD Mobile — the KSP 45. This burst-fire SMG was one of Cold War’s best, so here’s how you’ll be able to unlock it in CoD Mobile Season 6.

How to unlock KSP 45 in CoD Mobile

Call of Duty Mobile’s KSP 45 SMG can be unlocked for free at Tier 21 of the Season 6 Battle Pass. This will unlock the base version of the KSP, but CoD Mobile players who purchase the Premium Pass will also be able to unlock a Blueprint for it at a later tier.

Don’t worry if you don’t manage to unlock it during Season 6 as once the season concludes, the KSP 45 can be unlocked through an SMG-based challenge. For example, Season 4‘s Koshka can now be unlocked by getting 30 headshot kills with a Sniper Rifle.

The KSP 45 was a powerful three-round burst SMG in Black Ops Cold War that could kill extremely fast, even at range. Expect its versatility to be especially powerful in Favela’s mix of long sightlines and close-quarters combat.

The KSP 45 isn’t the only weapon coming to CoD Mobile in Season 6, as Black Ops 3’s L-CAR 9 fully-automatic pistol will arrive as part of the Seasonal Challenges.


Warzone Mobile is also in the works, and you can check out the leaked gameplay that shows off some of the new mechanics.

CoD Mobile Season 6: To the Skies release date, Favela map, new weapons & vehicle

Here is everything we know about CoD Mobile Season 6, including the release date, new map, weapons, and vehicle.

Published

on

Call of Duty Mobile is gearing up for a major content drop in its sixth season, and here’s everything we know about Season 6, including the release date, new map, weapons, and vehicle.

The CoD Mobile developers bring brand-new content for players to enjoy through seasonal updates, and Season 5, titled Tropical Vision, brought a map, as well as a Battle Pass with 100 tiers to progress through.

Now, players are looking ahead to the content drop in CoD Mobile Season 6, and we’ll go over everything that we know about it, including when the seasonal update is expected to arrive.

CoD Mobile Season 6 release date

In a Call of Duty blog post, the developers revealed that the official release date for CoD Mobile Season 6 is June 29, 2022.

You can expect the update to roll out at 5 PM PT / 8 PM ET / 1 AM BST, with the new content available in the game shortly after.

CoD Mobile Season 6 Favela map

Season 5’s Tropical Vision update brought the Apocalypse map that first appeared in Black Ops Cold War, and the devs confirmed in a Reddit thread that we would see the arrival of a map from a CoD title older than Black Ops 4 “in the next couple of seasons.”

On June 18, the developers officially confirmed that Favela from 2009’s Modern Warfare 2 is set to arrive in Season 6. However, the CoD Mobile version is set to be an iteration of Favela from Call of Duty: Ghosts.

This multi-level map is set in the slums of Rio de Janeiro and features multiple two-story buildings along with rooftops that you can climb onto.

While this map is large, close encounters are frequent, ensuring fast-paced action. It remains to be seen if the CoD Mobile version will feature any major differences from the Ghosts version.

CoD Mobile Season 6 Jackal Fighter Jet

On June 21, the developers tweeted an image that showed part of an aerial vehicle, seemingly confirming the addition of the Jackal Fighter Jet which was previously rumored to arrive in CoD Mobile Season 5.

Jackals will be deployed around the Battle Royale environment of CoD Mobile. These destructive vehicles are equipped with missiles, decoys, and a Gatling Gun. “While flying, your HUD will display other jets, whether enemy-controlled or friendly controlled or non-manned.”

There will also be a JACKAL: Fueled Up Themed Event in CoD Mobile Season 6 that will allow players to earn rewards.

CoD Mobile Season 6 new weapons

The Oden Assault Rifle appeared in the test build and was added during Season 5, and that server also featured another weapon that will make its CoD Mobile debut in Season 6.

The KSP 45 from Black Ops Cold War was found in the test server, and this three-shot burst SMG is now confirmed to arrive in Season 6. The KSP 45 is capable of dishing out a ton of pain to its targets at medium range. The weapon also boasts low recoil, making it ideal for close-range combat.

This new Season 6 weapon will be available via the Battle Pass, “At Tier 21, access a precision SMG in the form of the three-round burst KSP 45.”

In addition, the L-CAR 9 secondary pistol is another weapon found in the expired test server that will appear in CoD Mobile Season 6. Players will have to complete Seasonal Challenges to get their hands on the pistol.

Will Warzone Mobile replace Call of Duty Mobile?

Call of Duty: Mobile players are wondering whether Warzone Mobile will replace the game when it officially launches.

Published

on

Warzone Mobile has officially been revealed, and players are wondering if the battle royale will replace CoD: Mobile.

Activision have officially confirmed that Warzone will be getting a mobile port of the battle royale for handheld gamers. Warzone Mobile will aim to rival Fortnite on Mobile and Apex Legends Mobile, which has become extremely popular since its launch.

Of course, Activision already has CoD: Mobile, which has a huge fanbase and is constantly evolving through seasonal updates and new content. With that being said, many are wondering whether Warzone Mobile will replace CoD: Mobile.

Will Warzone Mobile replace CoD: Mobile?

As far as we know, Warzone Mobile will not be replacing CoD: Mobile, but rather they will be two separate entities. Having said that, there may be some crossover between the two, perhaps in terms of weaponry and leveling.

CoD: Mobile hosts an abundance of game modes and is more related to the classic Multiplayer mode that Call of Duty has become famous for.

Warzone Mobile is a handheld version of the Call of Duty battle royale game that has taken the FPS genre by storm since its release on consoles and PC in 2020.

The devs want to bring that Call of Duty battle royale experience to the massive mobile community who maybe haven’t had the chance to experience Warzone.

The experience will be different on mobile, as obviously the capabilities of handheld devices are much less compared to the power of a console or PC. Players should expect something similar to CoD: Mobile in terms of graphics and gameplay, as well as crossplay capabilities.
