BGMI vs. COD Mobile:Battle of the Mobile Battle Royale Games

BGMI vs COD:A comparison between the two most successful Battle Royale mobile games of all time. BGMI is the new Indian branding of PUBG Mobile and PUBG Mobile has, for a long time, ruled the mobile battle royale roost. PUBG's true challenger came in the form of Activision's battle royale, Call of Duty:Mobile. Both of these games seek to leverage an element of realism, to some degree, while presenting us with a mix of intense combat, variety and different game modes, and massive multiplayer action.

These two games are similar in many ways, but there are things that set them apart.

Game modes

One of the biggest differences when performing a BGMI vs COD analysis is the game modes offered by these two games.

Alongside the main BGMI Battle Royale mode also offers,

  • Classic (Battle Royale)
  • Arcade:Quick Match, Sniper Training, War
  • EvoGround:Payload 2.0
  • Arena:Gunplay, Arena Training, Team Deathmatch, Domination, Assault

COD Mobile is faster and action-packed. It instead opens up in multiplayer, a 5v5 battle in smaller areas – crash, kill house, crossfire, Nuketown and diversions in a number of different modes – frontline, deathmatch, dominations and search and destroy, offering these modes to players:

  • Ranked game
  • Classic
  • Clash Squad (Ranked and Unranked)
  • Kill Safe
  • Battle royale mode
  • Multiplayer:Core, Featured
  • Core:Frontline, Team Deathmatch, Domination, Kill Confirmed, Free For All, Hardpoint, Search and Destroy
  • Featured:Holiday Aftermath, High School, PTFO, Rapid Fire, Cranked, Hardcore


BGMI offers various Battle Royale maps in the Classic mode of the game. It contains Erangel, Vikendi, Sanhok, Livik and Miramar maps. Although BGMI has larger maps, but as some players say, that's not always a good thing. Having to traverse large expanses of terrain requires more concentration and can be boring, which some players don't like.

COD Mobile however offers relatively smaller BR cards, namely; Classic, Blitz and Alcatraz. Not much is known about the exact size of these two arenas, but the former can accommodate an intense 15-20 minutes, while the Alcatraz map is three times smaller.


BGMI graphics are quite realistic. The game runs on Unreal Engine and looks quite good on most devices. You can change various settings in the game, such as texture quality, etc. You can also change the quality to provide better visuals and frame rate or save battery by lowering the settings. Also, the graphics quality setting works well only on powerful devices.

Call Of Duty Mobile runs on the Unity engine and has great visual appeal. The game is very well optimized and runs smoothly on compatible devices. There are also options to change the quality and performance. The game is colorful, crisp and attractive. Optimization means the game will run on high settings on many devices.

PUBG Mobile seems to have a lot more detail, while COD Mobile feels graphically dense, with lots of clutter, but not quite the same level of clarity. PUBG Mobile also feels like everything has a bit more room to breathe, while in COD things feel a bit thicker, certainly in terms of maps.

These were some basic differences between BGMI and COD Mobile. You can download both games from playstore.
