With a total file size of slightly under 2 GB for iOS devices, Free Fire is played to obtain a "Booyah" from an individual or team within the player lobby of 50 players. The excitement while playing the game increases due to the availability of several special characters with special abilities.

2) Call of Duty Mobile


Like PUBG, Call of Duty is a powerhouse of gaming. Both of their mobile versions are fan favorites worldwide. There are similarities in the modes. However, the classic Battle Royale has an exact number of 100 players in a match.
