[Gaming] PUBG Mobile vs Call of Duty Mobile: What's the difference and which is better?

Hi Mi Fans

PUBG Mobile has, for a long time, ruled the mobile battle royale roost. Ok, so there's been the small issue of Fortnite, but PUBG's real challenger comes in the form of Activision's latest, Call of Duty: Mobile.

Both these games are looking to draw on an element of realism - to some degree - while giving you a blend of intense combat, variety and differing gameplay modes and massive multiplayer action.

But what's really different about these mobile games?

Graphics: Unreal Engine 4 Vs Unity engine

PUBG Mobile is powered by the Unreal Engine, appears to have a lot more fine detail, while CoDM feels graphically dense, with a lot crammed in, but not quite the same level of clarity.

CoDM runs on the Unity engine, it's also portraying a slightly different world, one that's designed to reflect the CoD experience from other platforms - and that has advantages in different areas.

One element of CoD: Mobile we like about the gaming environment are some of the destructible environment - there are windows to break and fences that smash - while PUBG Mobile doesn't have much in the environment you can destroy.

CoD: Mobile also has a lot more in the way of explosions, which you don't really get in PUBG: Mobile.

Gameplay modes

PUBG feels like it's battle royale first, with a range of Arcade modes second. Those Arcade options in many cases are also battle royale in style, but a little shorter - sniper training or mini zone are basically just like an extract of the main game.

CoD: Mobile feels different. It opens with multiplayer instead, a 5 vs 5 battle in smaller areas - crash, killhouse, crossfire, Nuketown and hijacked and in a number of different modes - frontline, deathmatch, dominations and search and destroy.

Upgrades and loadouts

PUBG Mobile is often about costumes, themes and skins with the ability to start the game wearing a steampunk outfit or be dressed like a clown, you start with no weapons in battle royale.

CoD: Mobile is a lot more straight-laced, because you're an operator, going to battle, gives you a knife and some skills, so you can do a little more from the get go

Both have a freemium approach, where you can buy passes or credits to then buy crates or skins - so the most customised players are likely to be those who spend the money in the game - although we can't see that there's any real gameplay advantage that comes with paying in either game.

Call of Duty Mobile lets you do more

PUBG Mobile is a fairly simple survival game at its core: you enter, gather, survive and win. In Call of Duty Mobile you start with little, gather more quickly, but also have a full range of skills that PUBG doesn't offer.

But CoD: Mobile often lets you get to bigger weapons faster. You'll find a rifle with a scope and you'll be good to snipe or you'll find a truck with a minigun mounted on it and you'll tear the place up. There's rocket launchers, sticky grenades and things like drones and UAVs to remotely locate and attack other players, all of which expand the range of combat options.

On the flipside, PUBG Mobile feels a little more edgy. You can't take a lot of damage in PUBG - a couple of hits and you're critical, whereas in Call of Duty it feels like you can unload a mag into an opponent and they're still standing.

And if you do die, your teammate can scan your tags and you can drop back into the game on a revival flight a few minutes later.

Summing up: Which is better?

PUBG Mobile has been on the scene for some time and Call of Duty: Mobile is certainly enjoying the hype of being new and shiny.

But we've got to say that we think Call of Duty offers the better arcade experience. It just feels better for face-paced action, sliding around, launching hunter-kill drones and getting up close to the enemy. It's a blast and it's something that we don't think that PUBG does quite as well.

Mi Fans, What is your choice ... PUBG OR CODM ?, Feel free to share your thoughts with us in comments
