How to Play Call of Duty: Mobile on PC With Mouse, Keyboard
After a few months of beta testing in select regions, Call of Duty: Mobile finally saw a global release yesterday. Developed by Chinese studio Tencent of PUBG Mobile fame and published by Activision, the game is free to download on both the iOS App Store and Android Play Store. Those aren’t the only two places you can play the game, though.
Those who’d rather avoid playing a shooter on smaller screens using touch controls can download and play the game on their PCs using the Android emulator GameLoop. Those who prefer playing on their smartphones or tablets needn’t worry, though, as COD: Mobile won’t match emulator users with mobile players.
The emulator, also a free download, is the game’s official home on PC. Apart from allowing you to play the game on your PC using the familiar keyboard and mouse combo or a controller, it ties into the game’s different multiplayer modes, automatically switching between control presets based on the mode you are playing. It also features an anti-cheat system, support for in-app purchases, video recording, as well as screenshots. COD: Mobile won’t match PC players with those on mobile devices. When you queue up for a match, you will be queuing up with other emulator users.
How to Download Call of Duty: Mobile on PC through the GameLoop Emulator
1. Head on over to the GameLoop website on your PC and download the emulator.
2. Install and launch GameLoop, then switch to its Game Center tab.
3. You should find Call of Duty: Mobile front and center here (at least till its release is fresh). If not, you can use the search bar at the top to find the game. Select the game and hit Install.
Now all you need to do is wait for the game to finish downloading. Once that is done, you can launch the game from the My Games tab in the emulator or using the shortcut it adds to your desktop.
While the game is running, you can customize keyboard and mouse presets for the game’s different multiplayer modes. We’d suggest sticking to the default presets through the first few games, as they seem to work quite well.
