When it comes to first-person shooters, there’s no bigger video game franchise in the world than Call of Duty. However, if you can't play CoD or is too bored with it, there certainly are some great alternatives. In this article, Gurugamer is going to showcase the top 6 games like Call of Duty on PC.

1. Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

With Call of Duty's focus being realistic gunplay and high-tech weaponry, games with magic skills such as Overwatch or Apex Legends won't be part of this list. And when it comes to realistic gunplay, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) is a classic.

As CS:GO is fairly lightweight, it is among the best games like Call of Duty for low-end PC.

CS:GO is the most popular multiplayer shooter in the world to date, drawing crowds of millions ever since it was released. It is the direct successor of Counter-Strike, the legendary iconic eSports heavy hitter. The gameplay of CS:GO is fairly simple in comparison with Call of Duty: there is no fluff like double jumps, wall runs, or laser guns here. The only way to win is with sheer skill and determination.

2. PUBG Battlegrounds

Amongst the battle royale games, Player Unknown's Battlegrounds or PUBG is probably the closest to Call of Duty. Similar to CS:GO, PUBG don't have any character skills or high-tech weapons, with the only thing available being the ordinary guns. If you like using sniper weapons in CoD multiplayer, you would be right at home in PUBG, as the BR maps are gigantic.

If you are looking for games similar to Call of Duty Warzone, the classic PUBG is a good option.

The biggest difference between CoD and PUBG is probably the main game mode: PUBG's main mode is BR while CoD's main mode is just the usual squad vs squad. At least players can choose between a free-for-all and teaming up in PUBG, so the differences aren't big. Currently, both PUBG and CS:GO are free to play on Steam.

3. Halo Infinite

Halo Infinite is a 2021 first-person shooter game developed by 343 Industries and published by Xbox Game Studios. It is the sixth mainline entry in the Halo series, and the third in the "Reclaimer Saga" following Halo 5: Guardians (2015).

Amongst games like Call of Duty on PC, Halo Infinite is the newest.

The campaign follows the human supersoldier Master Chief and his fight against the enemy Banished on the Forerunner ringworld Zeta Halo, also known as Installation 07. Despite the lackluster open-world component, its story, characters and gameplay are solid, which keep players' focus and enjoyment high.

The free-to-play multiplayer portion of the game is solid and can deliver intense and exciting moments. While the weapons in Halo looks high-tech, they are actually pretty simple and easy to get into.

4. Titanfall 2

Titanfall 2 is an amazing shooter with lots of variety in both cosmetics and modes. It is the perfect candidate if players prefer a more futuristic interpretation of Call of Duty. The gameplay of Titanfall 2 consists of two parts: Pilot gameplay (normal shooter) and Titan gameplay (a giant Ironman-like suit).

The pilot gameplay is very skill-based and rewarding. You have to work with your minimal health and wide skill set, along with various movement options to go against other pilots and even titans.

The titan gameplay, on the other hand, is very powerful. You become the most dangerous entity on the map, but you'd also be targeted by pretty much everyone. Use your titan kit to slaughter through waves of grunts, reapers and pilots and have tense battles against other titans.

5. Spec Ops: The Line

Spec Ops the Line is a great single-player game with an incredible storyline. It is generally considered one of the best stories in a war game to date. Therefore, if you are looking for single-player, story-based games like Call of Duty on PC, Spec Ops: The Line is probably your top choice.

Spec Ops The Line
Spec Ops The Line is mostly focused on story instead of combat, which is rare among games like Call of Duty on PC.

While the gameplay mechanics such as shooting, aiming and movement are hard to get used to, the weapons are great. They are very realistic and each of them has unique features like a grenade launcher, suppressor, 4x scope, etc.

It felt powerful when you shot enemies, and the detail of the characters dying was great for a 2012 game. If you shoot an enemy in the leg, their leg will be all bloody and destroyed, or if you shot them in the head with a shotgun, their head would come off.

6. Rainbow Six Siege

Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege is a first-person shooter game that focuses on team-based combat. Teams are made up of different operators with different nationalities, weapons, and gadgets. These elements are fairly similar to the usual CoD games.

Rainbow Six Siege is built around team-based combats.

Teamwork and cooperation are encouraged in Siege, and players need to take advantage of their different abilities in order to complete the objective and defeat the enemy team.

The best part about Siege is that it features a heavy emphasis on environmental destruction using a procedural destruction system. Players can break structures by planting explosives on them or shooting walls to make bullet holes. Players may gain tactical advantages through environmental destruction, and the system aims at encouraging players to utilize creativity and strategy.
