Call of Duty Mobile – Everyone Glued!

Call of Duty Mobile is undoubtedly the most popular smartphone game at the moment. The game has not only got the smartphone gamers glued to their screens, but it has also got all the PC gamers busy. You heard that right. The official COD Mobile emulator, Gameloop makes it extremely easy to play COD Mobile on the computers. In fact, the gamers are playing it as if this game is built for PCs only.

There is a huge difference between the Gameplay of PC and Mobile which is why there is a huge clash between the COD Mobile emulator and mobile players. The mobile players don’t like PC players and PC players love to annoy mobile players.

The biggest edge is the use of Mouse and Keyboard and the controller on the PC. The mobile version of COD Mobile had the controller support on Day 1, but it was pulled back. The developers are trying their best to keep both the emulator and mobile players away from each other.

For example, when you will run this game on the PC, COD Mobile will connect you with the players who are already playing on the PC. In that case, there are meager chances that you will be playing with mobile players. The mobile players, however, will always be connected to other mobile players only.
