BGMI vs COD: A comparison between the two most successful battle royale mobile games of all time. BGMI is the Indian rebrand of PUBG Mobile and PUBG Mobile has, for a long time, ruled the mobile battle royale roost. PUBG’s real challenger came in the form of Activision’s battle royale, Call of Duty: Mobile. Both these games are looking to draw on an element of realism, to some degree, while presenting us with a blend of intense combat, variety, and different gameplay modes, and massive multiplayer action.
These two games are similar in so many ways but there are somethings that set these games apart.
Alongside the main battle royale mode BGMI also offers,
- Classic (Battle Royale)
- Arcade: Quick Match, Sniper Training, War
- EvoGround: Payload 2.0
- Arena: Gun Game, Arena Training, Team Deathmatch, Domination, Assault
COD Mobile is faster and action-packed. It opens with multiplayer instead, a 5 vs 5 battle in smaller areas – crash, kill house, crossfire, Nuketown, and hijacks in a number of different modes – frontline, deathmatch, dominations and search and destroy, providing these modes for players:
- Ranked Game
- Clash Squad (Ranked and non-Ranked)
- Kill Secured
- Battle Royale mode
- Multiplayer mode: Core, Featured
- Core: Frontline, Team Deathmatch, Domination, Kill Confirmed, Free For All, Hardpoint, Search and Destroy
- Featured: Holiday Aftermath, Secondary School, PTFO, Rapid Fire, Cranked, Hardcore
BGMI offers various Battle Royale maps in the Classic mode of the game. It has the Erangel, Vikendi, Sanhok, Livik and Miramar maps. While BGMI does have bigger maps, but as some players say, that’s not always a good thing. Having to traverse large tracts of land requires more concentration and can be boring, which some players don’t like.
COD Mobile however offers relatively smaller BR maps namely; Classic, Blitz, and Alcatraz. There is not much known about the exact size of both these arenas, but the former can host an intense 15 to 20 minutes, while the Alcatraz map is three times smaller in size.
BGMI Graphics are pretty realistic. The game runs on the Unreal Engine and looks pretty good on most devices. You can change various settings in game like the texture quality and more. You can also tweak the quality to provide better visuals and framerate or save battery by reducing the settings. Additionally the quality graphics setting only works well on powerful devices.
Call Of Duty Mobile runs on the Unity Engine and has great visual appeal. The game is optimized really well and runs smoothly on compatible devices. There are also options to tweak quality and performance. The game looks colorful, sharp and attractive. The optimization means that the game will run on high settings on many devices.
PUBG Mobile appears to have a lot more fine detail, while COD Mobile feels graphically dense, with a lot crammed in, but not quite the same level of clarity. PUBG Mobile also feels like everything has a little more breathing space, while in COD things seem a little more thickly plastered, certainly in terms of the maps.
These were some basic differences of BGMI vs COD Mobile. You can download both of the games from Playstore.
