Bringing shooters, which are usually played on a computer with buttons upon buttons on the mobile platform is not an easy job. The UI design needs to be just right, not too obstructive or disruptive, as the area that you have to tap to control your character is a part of the screen. A wrong move and the user’s hand would be covering various details on the screen that are essential. In the following guide, we would be discussing Multiplayer Controls and Battle Royale Controls in Call of Duty: Mobile.
