Despite being intended as a handheld Call of Duty experience, CoD Mobile can also be played with a game controller. Here’s how you can do it.

Unbeknownst to many CoD Mobile players, Activision’s portable version of their long-running hit franchise can also be played using a game controller. For a more accurate gameplay experience, find out how you can play using one.

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, especially with all of the content that has arrived in the game in Season 2.

Which controllers can be used with CoD Mobile?

The official Activision website states the following when listing acceptable devices compatible with CoD Mobile:

“As of launch, only official DUALSHOCK®4 PlayStation® 4 and official Xbox One controllers can be used to play Call of Duty: Mobile. All versions of official PS4 controllers except first-generation controllers are supported.

Additional controller support may be available in future updates, but for now, players using a non-supported controller may experience issues with functionality.”

Since the launch of current-gen consoles, PS5 and Xbox Series X controller compatibility has also been added as well.

How to connect a PlayStation or Xbox controller with CoD Mobile

Here’s how to connect your PlayStation or Xbox controller to CoD Mobile:

  1. For PS Users: The first step is to hold down the Share button and PS button at the same time on a PS4 controller
  2. For Xbox Users: The first step is to hold down the Sync button and Xbox button at the same time on a PS4 controller
  3. Now you need to turn your mobile device’s Bluetooth on
  4. When the Bluetooth is locating a device, look for “wireless controller”
  5. Now connect to it
  6. Launch CoD Mobile and enable “Allow to use controller” in the Controller settings menu
  7. Your controller should now be connected, and you can modify its settings

Do note, however, that the controller will only work when you are actually in the middle of a game. If you are in the game’s lobby or in the settings in general, you will have to use your smartphone or tablet to control the game.

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.

CoD Mobile controller settings

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.

Zombies mode is also confirmed to be returning to CoD Mobile in 2021, so expect the game to allow you to customize your settings for this mode, too. However, we would recommend keeping your settings consistent across all the modes.


Hopefully, this can help your ability to improve with CoD Mobile and can stand you in good steading for the exciting new features that have been leaked.

Cod Mobile's PP19 Bizon

CoD: Mobile Season 3 has added The PP19 Bizon SMG from Modern Warfare, so here are the best attachments and perks for it in Tokyo Escape.

The PP19 Bizon is one of the most mobile weapons from Modern Warfare, allowing you to stay on the move during intense combat situations. It comes with an impressively large magazine and reasonable fire rate.

Now, this powerful weapon is a free reward in the CoD: Mobile Season 3 Tokyo Escape Battle Pass. If you want to use it to absolutely annihilate your foes in the new season, then you’ll need to equip the best loadout for the SMG.

PP19 Bizon in CoD: Mobile Season 3 Battle Pass
  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: OWC Marksman
  • Laser: OWC Laser – Tactical
  • Stock: MIP Strike Stock
  • Rear Grip: Granulated Grip Tape

Our loadout will focus on boosting the Bizon’s recoil control and effective damage range. The Monolithic Suppressor should serve you well in adding more range, while also providing sound suppression.

Next, we’ll equip the OWC Marksman to further increase the firing range, controllability and stability of the weapon. This will make it ideal for long and medium-range combat situations.

Equipping the OWC Tactical Laser will help with accuracy during medium-range engagements, so that you can take full advantage of the weapon’s mobility when using ADS. However, the laser can give away your location so be careful.

The MIP Strike Stock will help further improve the Bizon’s recoil at the cost of some movement speed. Luckily, the weapon’s mobility is already so impressive that this won’t come as much of a loss during battle.

Finally, we’ll cap off this loadout with the Granulated Grip Tape to improve aiming stability and aim walking steadiness so that you’re able to pick off enemies from a distance.

Best perks to use with PP19 Bizon in CoD: Mobile

  • Red Perk: Lightweight
  • Green Perk: Ghost
  • Blue Perk: Dead Silence

Lightweight gives a 10% boost to your sprinting speed, which will allow you to get yourself out of intense combat situations quickly. Equipping the Ghost perk will keep you hidden from enemy UAVs, so that you can take them by surprise.

Finally, Dead Silence will allow you to move throughout the map undetected. You can use this to your advantage and flank the enemy.

How to unlock the PP19 Bizon in CoD: Mobile

The PP19 Bizon can be unlocked after you reach Tier 21 of the CoD: Mobile Season 3 Battle Pass. All you need to do is progress through each tier by jumping into different matches and playing well.

Winning matches will speed this whole process up, and this method ensures that you don’t have to spend any money in order to unlock the weapon.

Best PP19 Bizon Alternatives in CoD: Mobile

If you’re looking for a strong alternative to the PP19 then we strongly recommend going with the QQ9 for its fluid mobility and obnoxiously high fire rate. The RUS-79U is also a great pick for its high damage, and impressive rate of fire.

Best Man-O-War loadout for CoD: Mobile Season 2

Here are the best attachments and perks to run with Call of Duty Mobile’s Man-O-War Assault Rifle in Season 2.

Published

Man-O-War in CoD Mobile

CoD: Mobile’s Man-O-War is a dangerous Assault Rifle that comes with extremely high damage and impressive accuracy. Here are the best attachments and perks for it in Season 2.

There are various weapons in CoD: Mobile for you to choose from before jumping into battle. The Man-O-War Assault Rifle is at the top of our weapons tier list for Season 2, as it continues to dominate matches.

This compact weapon of mass destruction boasts impressively high DPS, manageable recoil, and almost precise accuracy, making it the best gun that you can carry in Season 2. You can further enhance it with our loadout.

Best Man-O-War attachments for CoD: Mobile

Man-O-War in CoD: Mobile
  • Muzzle: OWC Compensator
  • Barrel: OWC Ranger
  • Laser: OWC Laser – Tactical
  • Underbarrel: Strike Foregrip
  • Rear Grip: Granulated Grip Tape

Our loadout will focus on boosting the Man-O-War’s accuracy and effective damage range. We’ll start off with the OWC Compensator that will help reduce the Assault Rifle’s lateral recoil while also reigning in Vertical Recoil Control.

The muzzle will have the adverse effect of reducing the weapon’s ADS bullet spread accuracy, but we’ll make up for that by equipping the OWC Ranger barrel. This will also improve the effective damage range.

Equipping the OWC Tactical Laser will help with accuracy during medium-range engagements, and will complement the Man-O-War’s movement speed when using ADS. However, the laser can give away your location so be careful.

CoD Mobile's Man-O-War

The Strike Foregrip Provides vertical recoil control and increased accuracy when ADS’ing, but at the cost of a slight reduction in mobility. However, this is weapon already has the highest mobility, so this won’t matter much.

Finally, we’ll cap off this loadout with the Granulated Grip Tape to improve aiming stability and aim walking steadiness so that you’re able to pick off enemies from a distance.

Best perks to use with Man-O-War in CoD: Mobile

  • Red Perk: Lightweight
  • Green Perk: Toughness
  • Blue Perk: Dead Silence

Lightweight gives a 10% boost to your sprinting speed, which will allow you to get yourself out of intense combat situations quickly. If you do get hit, then the Toughness perk will reduce your flinch, allowing you to keep your aim.

Finally, Dead Silence will allow you to move throughout the map undetected. You can use this to your advantage and flank the enemy.

How to unlock the Man-O-War in CoD: Mobile

In Season 2, this powerful Assault Rifle will become unlocked once you reach player Level 52. You can get to this rank by jumping into various games of CoD: Mobile, and playing well in them. You’ll get there quicker by securing victories.

If you haven’t unlocked the Man-O-War yet, or you’re looking for other options, there are plenty of other Assault Rifles to try out. The DR-H has a superb fire rate for an Assault Rifle and packs an incredible punch.

The ASM10 also comes with impressive rounds that are capable of obliterating your enemies with just a few hits.
