How to Play Call of Duty: Mobile With a Controller
Call of Duty: Mobile received its first major patch last week. Along with a battle pass and new game modes, the update also bought controller support. Currently, only Dualshock 4 and Xbox One controllers are supported. Support for additional devices is expected to arrive via a future update. Now, let's take a look at how to play Call of Duty: Mobile with a controller.
Set up your controller for Call of Duty: Mobile in six easy steps
On most smartphones, the process involves a Bluetooth connection. Some devices may support a wired connection over the USB port as well. Here, we'll take a look at the Bluetooth method as it is more commonplace.
Step 1: Put your controller in pairing mode. On a Dualshock 4, you'll need to press and hold the Share and PS button at the same time. Alternatively, press and hold the Xbox and sync button on an Xbox One controller.
Step 2: Switch Bluetooth on and set it to discovery mode.
Step 3: Look for a device called "wireless controller" and connect to it. Once the pairing is successful, open Call of Duty: Mobile.
Step 4: Tap on the settings icon in the top right corner from the home and navigate to the tab that says, Controller.
Step 5: Here you'll see the list of key bindings. We recommend that you go through it once to familiarize yourself with the controls. Once you're done, tap on the 'Settings' tab right next to 'Key Description'
Step 6: Tap on the 'Connect' button to finish the process. Feel free to tinker around with the sensitivity settings on the tabs to the right. Playing with a controller on a mobile screen is an entirely different ballgame, so it's best that you test your settings out against AI before engaging in matchmaking.
And that's it, you can now play Call of Duty: Mobile with a controller. Bear in mind that you'll be paired only against other players using a controller, so your matchmaking experience may vary. The controller works only after a game has started, so all prior navigation through menus and the likes still has to be done manually.
