Tips and Tricks | Call of Duty: Mobile’s Royale Battle Beginner Guide (Part 1)

One of the largest mobile game launches in history, generating over S$650 million with 270 million downloads within a year, Call of Duty: Mobile is not a game to be missed out on. If you are wondering what is the hype all about for this game, let us give you an introduction. 

Call of Duty: Mobile is a free-to-play shooter game. Essentially, it has 2 different game modes: battle royale and multiplayer. In the battle royale, players have to survive the 100-player experience, and in multiplayer, it is the traditional 5v5 team-based combat that most gamers are used to. 

Today, we will focus more on royale battle tips. There are 2 iconic battle royale maps in Call of Duty: Mobile that you can play right now:

Isolated

Isolated includes a number of places inspired by classic Call of Duty maps, such as the spaceport Launch from Black Ops and the creepy Estate from Modern Warfare 2. Outside of Isolated, there are numerous mountains that surround the enormous battlefield, the largest of which is covered in snow and is rather large. Many trees, open fields, massive boulders, and other smaller mountains can be found just beyond the city limits. The water from the beach can be seen out into the distance on the opposite side of the map.

When the lobby reaches 100 players, planes and helicopters will begin to fly in, and you will be able to use your wingsuit to jump to your desired location on the map. You can pull your parachute at any time to glide to a new location if needed, or wait for it to auto-deploy and drop you safely on the ground. Start looting and get ready to fight. Many areas on the map allow you to dive into the water, and you can even shoot your weapons underwater, but not grenades.

Tip: Isolated HQ is visible hovering above the map’s center and can only be entered when you first land at the start of the match. You’ll find a lot of crates with health, guns, and gear, but be careful since you won’t be the only one landing at the HQ. Immediately grab a gun and prepare to kill; the last person standing will get the most loot. 

Blackout 

As part of the Season 8: 2nd Anniversary update on September 23, 2021, Blackout was added. Blackout is based on the map from Call of Duty: Black Ops 4’s Blackout mode.

A major location in Blackout is the Raid. Raid is one of the two mansions that make up Estates, the Blackout map’s northernmost designated location. This huge complex, first seen in Call of Duty: Black Ops II, sees fighting erupt among the iconic sculpture, pool, and basketball court. Keep an eye on the chaotic middle courtyard and flee to the south if things get out of hand.

A second major location is the Nuketown Island, where it gets its own island off the western shore of Blackout’s mainland. Nuketown Island not only extends the nuclear testing grounds’ fake neighborhood above ground, but it also has an underground network of rooms and tunnels that can be reached from a variety of spots, including the bunker behind the blue house.

Tip: In comparison to Isolated, Blackout is a massive level with a completely different gameplay experience. Whether you’re returning to the field or arriving for the first time, make sure to get out and about. The better you know the arrangement, the more likely you are to survive.

Overall, battle royale is a game you have to fight on your own against others. If you prefer the multiplayer mode where you get to play with friends, stay tuned to our next article where we will dive deeper into that!
