Call of Duty Mobile has become one of the top games in the India mobile scene ever since its release back in October 2019. While the game is overall pretty well optimized for the high and middle-tier devices, its higher graphics and features are still a problem to a lot of devices. For low-end devices, the problems are even worse – it is very likely that your game would get laggy and choppy. In this guide, we would showcase how to fix lag in CoD Mobile.

1 - How to fix lag in CoD Mobile: Enable 4x MSAA

In some devices, there is an option called “Enable 4x MSAA” that’s hidden in the system settings that could possibly boost your device performance on Call of Duty, enabling better graphics and frame rate. Android developers often hide this option in the settings because they don’t want normal users to start tinkering with the system.

The reason they hid it is that this option is rather taxing for your system, possibly causing a higher battery drain and higher device temperature.

Furthermore, this option works differently in some cases – occasionally, your devices will not gain any extra FPS while still get all the negative effects. Because of this, it is best that you run an FPS counter to check your FPS before enabling the 4x MSAA COD mobile option. Also, if your device is too outdated, it would not have this feature.
