Free Fire vs COD Mobile: How different are the guns?
No DMR or Assault Category in Free Fire

The Rifles class in Free Fire is muddled up as the other categories of weapons have been included in one place.
The absence of a dedicated LMG category in Free Fire
As previously mentioned, free Fire does not have an LMG class available in their arsenal, though they have guns like M60 and M249 included in the Rifles category. COD Mobile, on the other hand, has an LMG weapon category, which includes five of them: S36, UL736, RPD, M4LMG, and Chopper.
Marksman Category in COD Mobile
Free Fire has three bolt action rifles included in the Sniper category: AWM, Kar98K, and M82B.

There is no such weapon class as Launcher in Free Fire. However, it includes weapons like M79 and MGL140, which are included in the Others category. COD Mobile has a Launcher segment, which adds the FHJ-18 and SMRS to its arsenal.
