COD Mobile is Activision’s answer to shooters for the mobile community. With a successful array of Call Of Duty games on other platforms, Activision has done a fantastic job of bringing its vision to the mobile gaming community.

Both Free Fire and COD Mobile are splendid games to play on mobile devices, and they have a few notable differences.

It is difficult to compare the pace of the game for these two titles. Free Fire has quick games, and most of them are packed with action.

COD Mobile also has action-packed gameplay with dynamic elements, but they stretch for slightly longer durations than Free Fire matches.

There is another major difference. COD Mobile features 100 players in a match, whereas Free Fire only features 50 players.

COD Mobile trumps Free Fire by a significant margin in this category. COD features a good range of realistic weapons, meant for specific purposes.

Free Fire features similar categories to COD Mobile but the guns sound and look animated. This makes them far less realistic, but they still carry a unique appeal.

Unlike Free Fire, weapons in COD Mobile cannot deliver if used inappropriately. Players have to be more precise with their selection. They must use SMGs for close-range battle and snipers for long-range purposes.


#4 - Graphics

Free Fire has decent graphics, but the game has cartoon-like textures. This could throw off players that are looking to play something more realistic.

COD Mobile has some of the best graphics, especially on high-end devices. The level of detailing on maps and weapons are carefully crafted.


#5 - Maps
