According to the official FAQ, the players are placed on the server that is closest to them by default. Hence, they cannot change the existing server or move to a different one.

Many players, in order to work around this problem, use Virtual Private Networks. VPNs let the players mask their IP address and change their location.

However, the use of VPNs is prohibited in COD Mobile. When the same query was made to the official COD Mobile Discord server’s moderators, their reply was
