Play these 6 games while you wait for Call of Duty Mobile
You'll not want to miss out on these mobile shooters
Besides match-three puzzlers, shooters saturate the mobile market heavily and Call of Duty Mobile is one of the most anticipated games yet. While you're waiting for it to drop, however, you should really check out these titles to scratch that particular itch.
No doubt you've heard by now but Call of Duty Mobile finally got its first trailer the other day, which is a pretty big step, believe me. Having been rumoured and in the works for some time now, it's great to see more than just trickles of information and teases.
Some of these games might not strictly walk the same line as CoD, but you're still going to have fun with them.
Modern Combat Versus
This first-person shooter may lack the laid-back charm of some other titles on this list, but it packs a real punch if you've got a craving for Call of Duty.
You've got over 17 specialised Agents in the Modern Combat universe to choose from and five maps to battle across, including both close and long-range combat. Each Agent has their own unique weapons and abilities to bring to the field, so make sure you choose the right one to suit you.
Stepping back off the FPS train, Tacticool is a third-person military shooter by Panzerdog. Using fast-paced 5-v-5 combat with real-time physics AND friendly fire, there are tons of strategies to implement, over 50 weapons, five maps, and over 20 characters to play around with in this free-to-play game.
In its review we said: "Where other shooters have tried to get bigger in response to the battle royale takeover, Tacticool keeps things small. Every shot here matters though, and the sharply focused action is a brilliant fit for gaming on the go."
Another shooter that'll satiate those Call of Duty cravings is Afterpulse, created by Digital Legends Entertainment (Respawnables). After an electromagnetic pulse sends the world into chaos, it's up to you to restore the balance of power and keep the peace.
Besides its admirable graphics, the game's engaging 4-v-4 matches will leave you wanting to play more. With over 800 primary and secondary weapons to play around with, customisable armour, and a play-style you can mould to suit your preferences, you'll definitely want this one in your gaming library.
Guns of Boom
Guns of Boom is a competitive, team-based, first-person shooter with an awful lot of charm. Designed with eSports in mind, its simple controls, striking graphics, and awesome character customisation will appeal to a huge number of gamers. It helps that the game is awfully fun to play, too.
In its review we said: "This is an essential mobile multiplayer experience, and you should drop what you're doing right now and go and pick it up." If that's not enough to send you running to the App Store or Google Play, it's also free-to-play so hurrah!
There are a few first-person shooters that come to mind when thinking of Call of Duty Mobile, but Shadowgun Legends is easily one of the best. Crisp, clean graphics, incredible response rate, and relatively well-balanced IAPs (without pressuring you to buy anything), this free-to-play title will definitely push your fun buttons.
In a world where fighters gain celebrity status by kicking a whole lot of alien butt, you need to complete missions, earn new gear, fight either solo or cooperatively, and try to become the most famous warrior of all time. Boom.
If you're a bit fond of third-person shooters, you'll have a ball with Respawnables. Unlike most shooters, the aim is to gun down as many people as possible within the set time limit while avoiding barrages of bullets yourself. As you could probably guess from the name, when you're downed you respawn soon afterwards and continue on fighting until the bell goes.
After celebrating its five-year anniversary a few months back, Respawnables is going stronger than ever with a loyal following, excellent reviews, good support, and regular content updates to keep things fresh.
