If there’s a game that gives serious competition to PUBG Mobile, then it is Activision’s Call of Duty: Mobile. It too follows the battle-royal formula, and boasts of various game modes. These include 100-player battleground, 5v5 deathmatch, sniper vs sniper battle, and a zombie mode. Besides top-notch visuals, the game also offers well-known characters from the CoD series, player customisations, and a whole lot of deadly weapons. In terms of graphics, refinement, and the level of competition, Call of Duty: Mobile is way ahead of its rivals. 

2. Fortnite

Fortnite is another great PUBG Mobile alternative, which offers the same fast paced battle royale experience. Unlike PUBG or CoD, Fortnite offers cartoonish visuals, but there is no denying the fun in that. In the Battle Royale mode, 100 players are dropped into a large island empty-handed. The objective then is to find weapons and resources to survive the round. While the overall game experience remains the same, one big difference is that players are required to build structures for strategic play.

3. Garena Free Fire

If you’re short on time, then you will enjoy Free Fire. It is a game developed by Singapore-based Garena and Vietnam-based 111dots studio. In the game, 50 players are pitted against each other in a battle royale. Rounds can last just 10 minutes so it is more about shooting and surviving than camping and biding your time. Some may question the graphics quality, but they are optimized to run smoothly on low-end smartphones

4. Battlelands Royale

Where games like PUBG can overwhelm new gamers with a wide array of options and controls, Battlelands Royale keeps things simple. Developed by Finland-based Futureplay, the game may look cute at first, but it does get ultra competitive. The formula remains the same with 32 players dropped onto a map where you collect resources and survive the round by killing your opponents. This third-person shooter also has other game modes including Team Play where you can play online with a friend, or a random person in the Random Duos mode. The game also offers exclusive content to gamers via the Battle Pass. 

5. Pixel’s Unknown Battle Ground

Pixel’s Unknown Battle Ground sticks to the same battle royale formula, but the blocky graphics are more reminiscent of Minecraft. The idea is the same wherein you drop onto a map from a helicopter and survive the round by killing all the opponents. There are three game modes to choose from – Single, Team, and Zombie. Gamers are offered tons of skin customisation options, over 30 types of weapons, and various vehicles to move around the map.
