Currently, Battlegrounds Mobile India and Call of Duty Mobile are the two most popular mobile shooters in India. Each of them has its own unique style and approach to the formula. While the core gameplay is very similar, the visuals, mechanism, maps, and modes are much different from each other.

In this article, we are going to compare BGMI and CoD Mobile to see which game has the better maps and modes.

1 - Battle Royale maps

If you play a mobile shooter for the Battle Royale mode, BGMI definitely comes out on top. Unlike CoD Mobile's measly 1 BR map, BGMI has five: Erangel, Miramar, Vikendi, Sanhok and Livik. Amongst these maps in Battlegrounds Mobile India, Livik is the most special one, as it is exclusive on the mobile version of PUBG.

While CoD Mobile's Isolated map is definitely well designed, it is just not as good as BGMI's.

2 - Gameplay modes

Both games have a decent number of modes, divided into 2 parts. The main part containing core gameplay and the extra part is arcade fun modes. We can clearly see that the games focus on different modes. BGMI is more focused on the battle royale while Cod Mobile is doing their usual team-based shooters.


  • Core: Battle Royale Classic
  • Arcade: Quick Match, Sniper Training, War, Payload 2.0, Gun Game, Arena Training, Team Deathmatch, Domination, and Assault...
BR Maps

CoD Mobile:

  • Core: Frontline, Team Deathmatch, Battle Royale, Domination, Kill Confirmed, Free For All, Hardpoint, and Search and Destroy
  • Arcade: Holiday Aftermath, Secondary School, PTFO, Rapid Fire, Cranked, Hardcore... and more.
The Isolated map
The Isolated map of CoD Mobile is large, but it is just one map.

While both types are fun to play, Call of Duty Mobile's normal team-based shooter game modes is arguably easier to get into. Unlike the long matches of Battle Royale, in which you have to parachute onto the map, loot weapons and fight, in Call of Duty, you just fight immediately each round.

3 - Normal maps

Currently, CoD Mobile has 7 maps for normal mode, with more on the way. BGMI, on the other hand, has only a handful of maps based on the BR maps. In this category, CoD Mobile dominates. Besides the usual normal maps, CoD Mobile also has maps for arcade modes as well.

4 - Verdict of BGMI Vs CoD Mobile

Overall, if you want to play a normal shooter on mobile, Call of Duty Mobile should be your top choice. However, if you prefer the battle royale format over it, BGMI is definitely coming out on top. The censorship and various weird restrictions might be an issue, but BGMI has a bigger fanbase in the country than CoD Mobile.
