Call of Duty Mobile Apps and its Record Breaking Numbers
If you are a lover of video games, you would have definitely heard about Call of Duty. A first person shooting game published by Activision that’s enthralled game lover for years.
First launched in 2003, the games began with World War II themes (remember Jim playing the game and losing badly in The Office?), but have gone on to expand its themes and acquired cult status all over the world. Hundreds of millions of copies have been sold earning the publishers billions of dollars in revenue.
But game lovers had one grouse despite all the excellence and excitement the game offered. The game could only be played on PC and consoles, not on mobile.
Well, this complaint is no longer valid. Enter Call of Duty Mobile!
Call of Duty Mobile’s Record Breaking Launch
Launchd on Oct 1, 2019, the game is available across Android and iOS apps. It clocked a record breaking 100 million downloads in its first week, dwarfing PUBG, Fortnite and Apex Legends which scored 26.3 million, 22.5 million and 25 million respectively in their first week of release.
How to download Call of Duty Mobile
Weighing 2 GB, this game is going to occupy a lot of space and RAM so we recommend you download this only if you have enough space to spare and decent RAM size in your phone. Unlike PUBG Mobile Lite, this game does not have a light mode yet.
Head to Google Play Store or Apple’s App Store to download the game.
Currently, the game is only supported on mid and higher end mobiles but the publisher has announced that even low end devices will be supported soon.

Review of Call of Duty Mobile
People have called this game utterly addictive. The game play is smoother and faster than other games in this league, and the graphics are richer and more dynamic.
The game has the well known and much loved Call of Duty gameplay modes with ranked and unranked matches. The various modes available are Search and Destroy, Team Deathmatch, Free for All, Domination, Hardpoint and Frontline modes. Some of the best maps from the PC version, like Crash, Crossfire, Hijacked, Standoff, Killhouse and Firing Range are also available on Call of Duty Mobile.
This game is free to play, which means one does not need to pay to progress or watch repeated video ads to bag points. You could still spend money for certain frills, which are again optional and do not impact the quality of gameplay or provide an unfair advantage to those with deep pockets.
We played the game for hours and really enjoyed it. With the upcoming festive season, we can expect Halloween themed add-ons to the game (similar to what we saw on PUBG Mobile) which is surely something new and exciting.
