Other things to consider while picking the best PES Midfielders

Different midfielders will work differently with certain formations and styles.

PUBG vs Call of Duty, Which game is better?
PUBG and call of Duty are the two biggest franchises of the mobile gaming industry. In this post, we will do a detailed comparison, It’s PUBG vs Call of Duty.
PUBG Mobile and Call of Duty (COD) Mobile give gamers intense combat game to play. Both games have different gameplay modes. These two Battle Royale games are up against each other and almost captured the mobile gaming industry with a bang. According to statistics, both games have millions of loyal fans around the world.
However, the topic always arises that which game is better among the two. Every player has their own if and buts and there is a difference of view among players about which one is better: PUBG Mobile or Call of Duty Mobile.
In this ultimate guide, we will compare PUBG Mobile and Call of Duty into different sections to find out which is better.
PUBG vs Call of Duty (Graphics)
PUBG Mobile runs on Unreal Engine, while CoD: Mobile runs on the Unity engine. Both games look absolutely stunning on phones, but according to my observation, COD Mobile looks a bit more realistic, dense, and sharper.
One of the major difference between these two games are graphically they are different in feel. PUBG Mobile majorly focus on the fine details of the game, while Call of Duty Mobile feels denser. In terms of clarity of the game, PUBG has an edge over Call of Duty Mobile.
While both games have different developers it’s usual to have differences. CoD Mobile is more focused on depicting a different world for the players to make it a more unique game on the platform.
COD is a more destructive and detailed combat game which is quite missing in PUBG Mobile. The explosions, rage, and intensity are a bit more in COD Mobile. PUBG is a more classic game with a lot to offer with his fine details while COD mobile is more dynamic in nature.
Both PUBG and Call of Duty mobile let the players drop from a plane. The selection of the area depends upon the player to drop before the plane completes its flyover. After pressing the on-screen prompt, the players have to drop in and equip himself with all weapons from the surrounding area before going to the battlefield. Both games have a safe zone which will shrink with time. The player has to be inside the zone to be safe. Both games have a similar goal.
PUBG Mobile is a traditional game with any players that can pick up very quickly. While Call of Duty Mobile, on the other side has more advanced features, different battle royale class, more vehicles, better loadout in Battle Royale. While on the other modes it has scorestreaks, operator skills, and a lot more to offer.
In COD, different classes have different features that will help the player in a battle royale. A defender class helps the player to create a shield for the team. Medic class deploys a continuous healing effect for a team against heavy gunfire. Mechanic class is my favorite as it has the EMP Drone for tricky situations where disabling enemy tech is needed. This Drone shoots out an Electro-Magnetic Pulse — that’s what EMP stands for — that interferes with enemy equipment and other technology. The players can also upgrade the class in the battle royale games.
PUBG vs Call of Duty (Gameplay)
COD mobile needs a faster approach from players and the gameplay is a lot more exciting. For the players who prefer a more tactical and moderate approach, PUBG Mobile is a more suited game.
Let’s talk about the differences in the gameplay of both games. Both games have the option of choosing FPP (first-person perspective) or TPP (third-person perspective). The interaction with enemies, scattering of bullets, recoil. accuracy, the shooting style is different in both games. In COD Mobile players have to start with selecting a battle royale class, customizing the loadout, and drop in on the battlefield. PUBG does not have many options, the game blends survival with the last man standing gameplay.
Both games have similar movement, shooting, aiming. However, PUBG has one mode for shooting, Call of Duty has two. The one is the simple mode, very helpful for the beginners in which the gun automatically fires when pointed to the enemy. The other is the advance mode in which the player has to aim and then press the shoot button to fire it.
In COD Mobile the different battle royale classes will help the players to tackle the enemies on the battlefield. While on PUBG Enemies indicator marks don’t appear until the enemy is close to the player and this makes PUBG a more competitive game than COD MObile. Another advantage in PUBG is firing from the hip is better than COD Mobile. Aiming down the sight is one of the important aspects and very helpful in knocking the enemies out of the game.
COD Mobile and PUBG Mobile have different game modes. Both games have a Battle Royale mode which is very popular for players around the world. In COD Mobile there are a lot more vehicles as compared to PUBG. The players can also jump off the helicopter and deploy a glider to land safely. In PUBG falling from a height will reduce the health of players as there are no gliders to deploy.
PUBG is more known for its battle royale while it also has a range of Arcade modes. Those Arcade modes will still give a glimpse of a battle royale feel but in a shorter version.
COD Mobile is completely outperformed PUBG in multiplayer mode. It has different maps including crash, kill house, crossfire, Nuketown and hijacked and a number of different modes including 10 vs 10, 5 vs 5 battle- frontline, deathmatch, dominations and search and destroy. It will take some time for PUBG to create an engaging multiplayer mode like COD Mobile.
The biggest advantage does Call of Duty has is one of the best multiplayer modes with pacy combat battle royale game. The popular modes in Call of duty Mobile are Deathmatch, Free-for-all, Domination, Frontline and Search and Destroy.
PUBG Mobile has different multiplayer modes but it does not match the standard of Call of Duty. The best mode in PUBG is a fast action game on War Mode. While PUBG’s biggest attraction is Battle Royale mode. COD has a lot to offer with different classes, scorestreak perks, operator skill, zombies. It’s a matter of preference however I think the battle royale mode in COD is more engaging, realistic, and more dynamic.
Upgrades and Loadouts
There is a difference between the upgrades of both games. PUBG Mobile is more about customization. PUBG starts the game wearing a steampunk outfit or be dressed as a clown. COD gives you more feel as a player looks well equipped going on a battlefield to battle.
In PUBG players will start the game with no weapon in a battle royale, while COD Mobile gives you a knife, class, and different skills, that quite helpful for any player to start. Another advantage of COD that it will give you the chance to choose your loadout for the game. It has multiple load-outs for every map which is lacking in PUBG Mobile.
Both games have a freemium model. Players have to buy passes or credits to buy premium weapons, characters, and all. While I don’t see any real advantage of premium crates. You have to be a better driver to win the race, not the better car.
PUBG vs Call of Duty (Maps)
Call of Duty has better maps for Multiplayer games While on the battle royale game it has one map which includes most of the popular multiplayer maps such as Nuketown, Crash, Hijack, and Killhouse. In PUBG, players have four maps, all of them quite big.
It’s again about the preference of the players. The players who need fast, pace, and arcade games will go for COD Mobile. On the other side players who love long drawn classic matches will go for PUBG. PUBG battle royale game will last for 30 minutes while COD Mobile will last for approx 15-20 minutes.
Summing up : Which is better?
Overall, the results favor COD Mobile over PUBG Mobile. While players love playing both games, it just a matter of preference. Both games are par excellence. I would recommend everyone to try both games and then make a decision. As every player has their own style of play.
PUBG Mobile has been phenomenal since it’s launch. While on the other hand Call of Duty Mobile enjoyed the same success and became the most downloadable game in quick succession. Due to its similarity any player can switch to any particular game at any point in time.
The players who love the arcade-style of gameplay will love Call of Duty. When it comes to battle royale, the players who love playing wild will go for COD Mobile while the players who love classic games will love PUBG.
