PUBG has occupied the charts for a long time but COD has made sure that it brings a whole new exciting environment for the mobile gamers to be hooked on. Coming from a person who has played both, COD mobile feels like a 2 in 1 game combining Pubg and the classic pc cod with a lot of new additions. The biggest reason for this is the new Call of Duty Battle Royale which is the basic game mode of PUBG, coupled with game modes from the classic COD, the newer game ousts its older rival in diversity. People who want a quick match have many modes to play it in COD whereas if they look for a longer game, battle royale is always there coupled with the enthralling 'Search and Destroy'.

The game pace is more controlled on Cod servers where as it is faster on Pubg. Conclusion For a first shooter gamer, COD mobile is a new generation of gaming platform that cannot be overlooked.
