There are primarily five battle royale classic maps in PUBG Mobile: Erangel, Livik, Miramar, Sanhok, and Vikendi.

Erangel and Miramar are the largest arenas in the game, at 8x8km each. Vikendi is the second-largest arena at 6x6km, while Sanhok is 4x4km. The smallest map of them all, Livik, is only about 2x2km.

Gamers can experience any of these maps after choosing the preferred map from the Classic mode section in PUBG Mobile.

Unlike PUBG Mobile, COD Mobile has two game modes; The Battle Royale mode and the Multiplayer mode.

In COD Mobile, there are currently two maps available under the BR mode: Classic and Alcatraz. There is no much information about the exact size of the two arenas, but the former can host an intense 15-20 minutes match, while the Alcatraz map is three times smaller in size, with short and intense gunfights throughout the match.


Both these titles are mega-popular, and they are successful in offering their players a great gameplay experience in their own unique ways.

In terms of a battle royale map comparison, clearly, PUBG Mobile is the winner as it hosts a total of five maps in the game, whereas COD Mobile currently offers only two maps in the game.

The two games are different from each other in several aspects, and it is entirely based on the preference of an individual as to which game to play.
