Call of Duty Mobile PC Key Mapping for BlueStacks

Before you take a look at the best COD Mobile PC Key Mapping for BlueStacks, let me give you an idea about COD Mobile’s gameplay on the emulator.

Call of Duty Mobile for PC on BlueStacks

Call of Duty Mobile came out about 2 weeks back. It didn’t take even a couple of days for this game to cross over 100M downloads. We are not talking about downloads from one platform, we are talking about the accumulative downloads.

As soon as the game came out, emulator players, as usual, tried running this game on their computers via Android emulators like BlueStacks. The game failed to run on BlueStacks at first. Within the same day, Call of Duty Mobile developer, Tencent, released the official COD Mobile emulator named Gameloop. The Gameloop is basically a revision of the Tencent Gaming Buddy. It has been rebranded with the added support for Call of Duty Mobile. A huge number of COD Mobile players jumped towards the Gameloop emulator which gave a wakeup call to the BlueStacks developers to update their emulator. The BlueStacks was updated to support Call of Duty Mobile later on.

As of writing this post, BlueStacks fully supports Call of Duty Mobile. Not only it runs the game, but it also brings completely custom controls for the game as well. On top of that, BlueStacks guys have been educating users on how they can improve their overall COD Mobile gameplay.

BlueStacks is not doing something entirely special here. It’s just letting you play the most popular smartphone game on your computer. When it comes to choosing one between the BlueStacks and Gameloop, it depends entirely on the end-user. If you have been a lifelong BlueStacks user, you should probably stick to it, and if you want to experience something tailor-made to run COD Mobile on PC, you should go with the Gameloop.

Although BlueStacks shows you a complete list of controls when you launch Call of Duty Mobile on it, those controls are not something many users will stick to. Down below, I’m going to list all the key configurations and key mapping of COD Mobile for BlueStacks. I am also going to show you how you can re-configure COD Mobile Key Mapping on the BlueStacks.

Default COD Mobile Key Mapping for BlueStacks – Multiplayer

In the BlueStacks, you will see the controls tutorial first of all. It’s a long list of controls. You will see the Combat controls first of all.

You can Aim and Pan with the mouse. If you don’t want to Aim and Pan with the mouse, you can press the F1 key on the keyboard. After this, your control will be shifted to the touch controls. You will have to click on each button in the game using your mouse. It’s always recommended to use your Mouse to Aim and Pan. Basically, you will be using your Mouse to freely move in the game. Here are the combat controls of COD Mobil

You do not get the Helicopter in the multiplayer mode. There are a lot of Helicopters in the battle royale mode and the players are absolutely in love with this one feature. A helicopter is the easiest way to navigate through the maps in COD Mobile. This is also where BlueStacks has edge over other emulators.

  • Increase altitude (Go up): Arrow Up
  • Decrease Altitude (Go down): Arrow Down
  • Turn Left: Left Arrow
  • Turn Right: Right Arrow
  • Exit Helicopter: Q
  • Enter Helicopter: F

  • Tilt forward: U
  • Tilt backward: J

  • right tilt: K

The movement controls of the Battle Royale mode are exactly the same as the multiplayer mode.

  • Move Forward/Backward/Left/Right: W-A-S-D
  • Sprint: Shift + W
  • Jump: Space
  • Crouch/Go Prone: C

In Battle Royale mode, you also get to drive various vehicles including Jeeps, Trucks, Motorbikes, and more. Here are the vehicle controls.

  • Enter Vehicle: F
  • Enter Vehicle with others: B
  • Change seat: CTRL
  • Exit Vehicle: F/Q
  • Brake: Up
  • Boost: Down

Here are the weapon controls for the Battle Royale mode.

  • Weapon 1 & 2: 1 and 2
