How To Play Call Of Duty Mobile With Controller

If you want to obliterate the competition, you may want to learn how to play Call of Duty Mobile with a controller, as the game allows you to connect your Dualshock 4 or Xbox One controller. Call of Duty Mobile allows you to play traditional solo and team-based multiplayer or the battle royale mode on the go, making for a feature complete FPS title. While it works fine with the touch controls, some players might be used to gamepads and their tactile nature, so take a look at how to play Call of Duty Mobile with a controller. 

How To Play Call Of Duty Mobile With Controller

Connecting a controller to your phone to play Call of Duty Mobile is very simple, and will give you a big advantage over the rest of the player base. This is especially the case if you are used to gamepads on previous Call of Duty games, and you should be able to climb the leaderboards quickly. The method for connecting your controller of choice depends on your mobile device, so we’ll run through both the Android and iPhone methods below.

Android

  • Pull down the notification centre from the top of the screen.
  • Hold the Bluetooth symbol and select “Pair New Device.”
  • Hold down the PlayStation button on your Dualshock or the Xbox button on your Xbox One controller. 
  • Once the LEDs light up and begin to flash, you should be able to select the device on your phone. 
  • With it connected, go onto Call of Duty Mobile and test that it works. 

iPhone

  • Open the Settings app and select Bluetooth. 
  • Hold down the PlayStation button on your Dualshock or the Xbox button on your Xbox One controller.
  • Once the LEDs light and begin to flash, find the device under “Other Devices.” 
  • Click it to connect and then try using your controller on Call of Duty Mobile

It’s worth noting that the controller only works during gameplay, and not in the menus, but once you have tested it, you may want to alter some of the settings. If you go into the Settings menu and select the Controller tab, you can change some of the default options. We recommend the following:

  • Enable Controller Support – On
  • X-axis FLIP – Default
  • Y-axis FLIP – Default
  • Flip Triggers with Bumpers – Default
  • Tap ADS – Hold
  • Auto-Sprint – Off
  • Sprint Function – Push left joystick forward

From there, you can fully test out the controller and make any changes you deem fit. 

That’s all for our explainer of how to play Call of Duty Mobile with a controller, and now you will be able to connect your gamepad of choice and destroy the competition.
